After 28 years of truly great food and a go to spot for locals seeking their Asian fix, Asuka has closed. The building is to be torn down to make room for street level high end retail. Wish Asuka could afford to stay in the...More

Asuka is one of the first sushi restaurants I went to when I was first introduced to sushi many moons ago. This place hold fond memories of good meals with friends and family over the years and there has never been a time where food...More

Tiny place, lower level (basement), easy to miss. Fills up quickly at lunch. The menu covers all the usual sush/Japanese staples but there are quite a few items meant to be shared or for a group. Service always pleasant and prompt. I thought the nigiri...More

The atmosphere is a bit sketchy, but it doesn't matter if you are there for the food! The seaweed salad was excellent and the spicy tuna rolls melted in your mouth (in a good way- not because they were warm...). We both ordered a Chirachi...More

It starts at the front entrance...dirty. There are cob webs around the sushi bar and the display case is full of grime. The tables are sticky. What was once a great place has become a disgusting hole in the wall. If you want good sushi,...More

This very good sushi bar was just one block off Bloor but it's located down a few steps from street level. Asuka has curtained booths if you are a small group, or a romantic couple, and the tables are separated by Japanese screens throughout the...More

Firstly, the service was nice, we were immediately welcomed and seated across from the sushi chef. I was craving something warm so ordered the Niku Don Buri, which in the past I've loved. This time, the texture seemed off, and upon tasting it, it was...More

Fantastic little restaurant in Yorkville serving great traditional sushi. Highly recommended. Can be a little hard to find as it is tucked away in a basement, but well worth finding.

This little hole in the wall in Yorkville is apparently quite famous for stars that have come by during TIFF, etc. but on most regular days it's accessible to us normal folk. Good, higher than medium end but not quite high end sushi at reasonable...More

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and
