Very much enjoy the ambiance and the service at this restaurant. The sushi is consistently good. The specialties are the best. I find the wine prices are very much increased. More than double what you pay at SAQ.

It was my first time at Shô-Dan and it did not disappoint. Local colleagues recommended it and hyped it as the best sushi in Montreal. It was very good and the service was excellent. I would definitely return.

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
