This restaurant is EXTREMELY popular. You need to wait 15 minutes before it opens, otherwise you need to wait for a while to be seated. They take no reservation. It's a casual Japanese restaurant, and food is very creative.

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
