Very quaint place! Make sure you make a reservation. It is small and gets busy! Great sushi and a wonderful sushi chef.

Good food not too expensive. Quiet and not pretentious place. Courteous service.

I absolutely cannot in good conscience recommend this place. I had the karaage and sushi/sashimi main. The karaage was not crispy or well seasoned or particularly different from KFC and extremely expensive for the quantity you get. The sushi and sashimi were at best "OK" (better than other sushi places) and extremely expensive for the quality and quantity. I should be able to taste the fat and the flavour of the fish when I eat sushi which I couldn't. Further, the maki weren't even held properly by the nori and were falling apart. For a total of around 50$, I could have gone to Mon Ami or Misoya, gotten more karaage than I could eat and enjoyed my experience more. And then I'd still have enough money left to get some sushi at Sushi Shop.

A satisfying Japanese restaurant with a great lunch menu. Lunch includes miso soup, a mini salad, and desert (one scoop of icecream) along with the main meal. There is limited seating so it is better to make reservations. When you enter, there is a coatrack available to put away your winter coats during the winter. There is additionally a counter along the kitchen wall that is great for solo seaters. Service was fine; a touch slow but they were really busy.

Immeasurable. Food quality being pristine is one thing but the staff and service is impeccable. Ive been hesitant about reviewing as it might become too popular! Definitely one of Montreal's top hole in the walls.

This restaurant is certainly overvalued. The dishes were less than expected. Especially rolls were below standard. I can say its undon was normal.

One of the best Japanese restaurants in town, food and menu are super authentic. Price a bit on the high side but probably worthy. The Chawan mushi and petit sukiyaki is super tasty. Their fresh sushi rolls/sashimi is a must try! Fish is really fresh

Only one cook and one server made for slow service. Great food, though!

A very disappointing lunch. The food took almost an hour, which would have been fine, but it just hasn’t anything special. The salad and miso soup were very sad. We had the eel and one of the mixed boxes with tempura. The eel was very good, and the rice was very good, but everything else was just... underwhelming. I’m 5’4 and 115lbs, and I left feeling hungry. It definitely wasn’t worth $25 per person.

Sushi was delicious and great quality! This little restaurant gets pretty busy - I was by myself and just managed to squeeze in at the bar - so worth booking. Quite a few Japanese people eating here which is also a good sign.

Very good place. The food was delicious and the service was great for our group of 8 people. Maybe not the best if you're vegetarian though.

Can't go wrong at this place. Always great and there fries are in my top 3. Waitress are on the ball and always pleasant. Place would need a little bit of an up-date on decor.

Very good Japanase food. Fish flown from Vancouver, Hawaii or Japan. Sushis and tempura executed as they should. No frills service and decor. I definitely will be back.

Elly Koopman

We ate the best sushi esterday in this restaurant. Looks not as a restaurant from the outside but inside is good and clean. And the sushi is so good.

Sam Todd

Very nice place to get together with your friends. The sushi and sashimi is one of the best in Montreal. I highly recommend people try their Tan-don with shrimp and Yaki-tori. Unagi don is also quite nice but usually you have to wait for 15-20 minutes since they need to grill it. You have to wait for the sashimi and sushi as well.

Great food, simple and calm ambiance.

Best authentic Japanese restaurant in Montreal!

Such an amazing find! Don’t walk too fast or you’ll pass this hole in the wall. The food is delicious and the service is good. The place is very clean and cute.

Michael Schäffer

Outstanding food and service. I have never been disappointed. The simple and modest interior conveys a traditional authentic spirit of Japan.

Adron Nguyen

This is the real deal. Real Japanese sushi made by Japanese people. They are attentive to details and they never mess up my order. On top of that, I accidentally left my headphones the last time I came here. When I came back the following month, they recognized me and immediately gave it back to me. Not only is the food excellent, but they actually care and remember their customers.

Best sushi on the island! Staff is very pleasant and truly passionate. Been going weekly for 4 years and I never left disappointed! Strongly recommend.

This used to be my favourite place for maki, I used to prefer coming here over Jun I and Park. But their maki has changed since last year. Sometimes there would be too much rice, sometimes not enough sauce, or too much sauce on the other maki of the same ingredient. Seaweed is no longer roasted so nicely but rather too chewy and old. The rice seasoning no longer consistent. I'm sad that I must search for a good place to go for maki again...

Audran Guerard

By far my favorite sushi for lunch place. Affordable and great staff.

Arthe Mether

Very good Japanese restaurant. A little expensive but it's worth it

Tobias Paice

A hidden gem. Always great and fresh tasting sushi. I love to get the chefs sashimi and sushi plates to taste a variety of things. The place feels very homely and I've had wonderful service each time I've been.

Maki had loads of rice. Sushi/sashimi was decent. Price was a bit on the $$ side, but it is sushi. Service was not too good, not enough staff, it was pretty busy. Would I come again? Probably not. Quite impossible to find a good sushi place with a good price in Montreal. So sad.

Nice little place but quite busy during lunch. Either get there at opening or make a reservation as it fills up quickly. Service was fine but the lone server was overworked with a full house and was visibly struggling to keep up. I had the unagi-don which is my usual test for a Japanese place and it was pretty good. The meal included salad, miso, and ice cream dessert which was nice. The menu was a bit limited tho and the unagi was one of the more expensive items. The main reason for a 4 instead of a 5 star review is the lack of beverage options especially because I prefer my green tea cold and they only have hot tea as well as the lack of staff that did make for a bit slower service, finally the limited menu items is really a shame as it would have been nice to try their take on some other staple recipes.

Been here for dinner. Tiny restaurant and so tables fills up quickly as most people booked a table in advance. Overall food quality was not good, especially for the price they charge. The quality of sushi is nothing like the authentic sushi one would find in Japan. Japanese sushi emphasize on the actual seafood, but the sushi served at this restaurant are extremely small portion and also a huge amount of rice is placed within sushi rolls. This restaurant will disappoint you if you are looking for authentic sushi experience. Ordered a supposedly shrimp roll, had a hard time locating the shrimp... (further investigation reveal it was extremely small and buried inside the huge amount of rice and eggs inside the roll - see red circle) Service was ok but food takes a while before arriving. Strongly suggest looking for other sushi restaurants for higher quality sushi.

I go there often. It is a little restaurant own by a Japanese family. The food is good and everything is fresh. The price, well expect to pay high due to its location but also the freshness. Some days, the service can be slow, it s nor.al since there's not a lot of chef. I believe only one Sushi chef and the second is a helper.

Shil P.

Definitely a local hot spot. I got there at about 8, and there was only one table open. The staff was friendly and the food was great.

Amy Mailloux

A little hole in the wall, food is fine but sushis are too big, too much rice and nothing really original. Service is very slow and not very friendly

Huan-Wen Liu

The best Japanese food in Montreal, amazing sushi. Great customer service. Strongly recommend

Andre J.

My favourite Japanese and Sushi spot in Montreal. It definitely is a hidden gem. Staff is extremely nice and service is top. I went there maybe 10 times and still discovering new things in the menu. Everything is great. Try their freshest fish and the Toro if they have it. You will be in heavens.
