starting with the service, you are greeted by the most hospitable staff. the entire experience to the food, to speaking w/ the chef, and the little details (including bringing a happy anniversary dessert) were all much appreciated.

Service was good but food were very disappointed.
We can only finished 3 out of 9 courses due to general lack of quality in flavour. Steam egg custard with crab ball and clams were very fishy with an unpleasant odour. Bean puree was not smoth, bean residue made it difficult to swallow. Kimedai was blend and not fresh. Deep fried fish skin was not crispy and rather tough on palate. Duck meat ball had no duck flavor. For $150 per head I would expect a much better menu and quality.

My partner and I enjoyed the 9-course meal each. For the quality of cuts of the fish and the authenticity of the ingredients, the price was very fair. The chef plated each course very nicely and was very interactive & entertaining. I would definitely come back to enjoy his works of art!

Food could be better with the price. Some very heavy and unbalanced sauces and tastes. Fishy smells in some dishes. But overall good experience. Good sakes.

food presentation was art on a plate. That alone is worth the experience. Best to sit at bar counter to see the chef in action and chat/interact with him. That made the night. Food wise, I think the flavour was slightly disappointing but again the experience was what made it an amazing night.

Hands down the most amazing Japanese restaurant in Toronto. Taste, texture, presentation - pure artistry from a true artist. The dishes are phenomenal!

Overall it was a unique and good experience. Some of the food was definitely not for the traditional North American pallet but nevertheless if you are looking for something unique this is a great spot. If you can afford to do so and you are into Japanese style food I would recommend giving it a go

Kaiseki in Toronto doesn’t get any better than this. Chef Daisuke knocks it out of the park every time. His culinary creations are not to be missed.

Had an outstanding night at Yukashi. The chef made it personal and fun! Every course was presented beautifully and he took time to explain what was presented. Chef Daisuke's took time after the course to converse with his diners personally and we learned quite a bit. Definitely worth going!

The first few dishes were nice, but all soups were too salty. I told the waitress that the soup was too salty and next dishes please add less salt. However, the coming soup was still way to salty which I cannot eat it!

Without a doubt the best Japanese food in the city! Every dish is a visual pleasure and every mouthful is a taste and texture sensation. We chose the four course menu which we found filling, although there is a 9 course too. The Sake we had was outstanding, chilled, sweet and aromatic. Every course is a surprise, the chef chooses, which we loved each sublime surprise that arrived. They also have a small a la carte menu, the Wague, sea urchin and fois grois is a must have dish. A smalll quaint restaurant with unassuming decor with the most outstanding food in the city - what a find....! Thank you....!
