Best Japanese restaurant in Montreal. Staffs and chef are nice and polite. Food is awesome. I always take out sushi or sashimi to my house which is half an hour from the restaurant and it never disappointed my tongue. A bit difficult to find the place and usually need a reservation to dine in the restaurant.

My girlfriend and I went to this place for the first time. I consider myself not a picky person at all i rarely complain on food and service. We ordered Seafood Udon and Unadon for each of us and when we got our dishes. we were super stunned. The Unadon was Bowl of rice and 3 or 4pieces of eel. Couldn't finish the dish because after the 3~4 pieces of eel were gone.. it was just plain rice with nothing else to have it with. $18+tax for plain rice and couple pieces of eel???? and the udon was not much better. It said Udon with scallops and mushrooms and eggs on the description and it came with 1 thumb-sized scallop with 1/4 of a mushroom piece and an egg in it. 1 each of everything.. and we paid $15+tax for that. Reading other reviews with 5 stars, I don't know what 'authentic' japanese food should be since I am not japanese, but I could definitely tell that it was SO overpriced and I would like to prevent anyone else from wasting their money. If i could give a 1/2 star or no star at all, i would do that instead of giving 1 full star.

Best Japanese food in Montreal, no questions asked. Reserve ahead as it is almost always full. I recommend the Sushi and Sashimi over the maki, don't forget to ask the waitstaff what is the freshest (perhaps you will go on the lucky days when they have freshly imported stuff from Japan). For non-raw food, Wafu salad is incredible and the Sukiyaki has a very generous portion of high quality beef for two people.

Perhaps the BEST authentic japanese food you can get in montreal. You will be impressed by the simplest thing like sushi,sashimi, sukiyaki and many more. The sashimis are always perfectly cut and give you a mouth fill of joy. Tea is always brought to you at the perfect temperature. The staffs and the chef are pleasant people and they make you feel like you are in japan. Make a reservation at least one day in advance since there are not that many seating.

Service was polite. Ordered sashimi, which came very very fast. Started with the salmon, perfectly fine. The octopus was chewy and previously obviously frozen. The tuna was tasteless with the texture of street meat. The scallops were slimy and unpleasant. I pushed the plate aside (there was an unremarkable miso to finish) and sat there, in full view of the chef, thinking perhaps someone would notice or at least ask how I was enjoying my food. I finally flagged a waitress and, trying to be sensitive, said it wasn't to my taste and could I order something else. There was some consultation and ultimately the chef came to my table and said matter-of-factly he would not refund my food; he did offer to use the fish still on my plate (some of which, not to be indelicate, I had returned to the plate after a couple of chews) to make me sushi instead. I clarified that it wasn't that I didn't like *sashimi*, it was the quality of this fish that was unacceptable. He repeated his refusal and left, I asked for my bill so I could leave. The waitresses, still blithely polite, didn't seem to realize there was a problem. Paid $36.79 plus 3.60 tip = $40.39 So I'm writing a review. I'll admit to being picky; but I believe a $32 sashimi plate signals a certain level of quality which was sorely lacking. Although the staff were nominally polite, their actions clearly indicated that they were more concerned about recovering the cost of their fish (..comment withheld) than the experience of their patrons.

Small hidden place downtown not easily spot by people but always full. Really have to reserve before coming. I came here twice to try traditional japanese meals and sushi. I have to say the sashimi was amazing, very fresh especially the scallop. A bit too much rice in the maki but taste good and soft. The traditional foods are average, not much meat in ramen. Sake bottle a bit small for the price. Very nice service.
