We've come here quite a number of times now, and you start to notice the loyal following, other customers.like us who appreciate the authentic, careful preparation of food. Its decor is 2 or more decades out of date, but who cares? Oh sure, I can...More

This is a hidden gem we would never have discovered if we hadn't been invited to it by a colleague whose wife is Japanese and who is an excellent guide to the food of Japan. The chef of Rikishi is also Japanese, and he certainly...More

I had my birthday dinner here with my family. We lived in Japan twenty-five years before this and were taken back to that experience. The dishes were special, something you recognize as authentic and prepared with loving care, especially the pickled fish, sushi, and many...More

Restaurant was busy. The sushi was delicious! I had the Salmon Lover meal. Would go back and eat there again. It is located at the Eaten center 3 levels down. Fun and interesting to get there. Very busy mall to shop.

This phenomenal Japanese restaurant is easy to miss at the corner of Shaw and Bloor. Even if you do notice it, you'd probably keep on walking as it does look like a hole in the wall. The interior, as other reviewers have said, needs much...More

Consistently great food. Humble surroundings. If you want a good, inexpensive, authentic Japanese sushi meal then come. The owner is a delicate, humble fellow with a great knife. Perhaps is needs a dab of paint but close your eyes and taste.

This is a great sushi place, no one seems to know about it. Rikishi is a mom and pop Japanese restaurant that doesn't pay much attention to their decor, but they certainly do towards their food. No one really speaks english well, so ordering can...More

West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry
