Every dish here is oishi (delicious)! As there were two of us, they were able to squeeze us in at the bar (and I DO mean SQUEEEEEZE). As someone who goes to Japan frequently, I cannot fault the food. Wine was only $5 a glass,...More

This is honestly one of the best if not the best Japanese place I’ve ever ate at. Service is so friendly, so quick, and it’s so delicious. I recommend this like 100%. But it’s somehow small, so you should be patient !

Fresh and very tasty food, original to the place, and service always efficient even though they get quite busy. I was able to snug a table just after they opened, but best to arrive ahead, before opening. Anything from the grill is always fab, the...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
