After visit some sushis in Montreal this is a good one, unfortunately no uni, and the hamachi was so so, but salmon, phoenix roll and some special cones that the chef prepared to us were very good.

If you're looking for a Japanese restaurant for a celebration or special business dinner sho-dan is a good choice. We went for an office celebration and asked the waiter to bring the most popular choices from their specialty sushi choices for our table of 8. The Atlantis and Besame were the table favourites. All were very good but lacking s... More

Excellent presentations and great quality food. We go often and never look at the menu, we let the chef do as he wishes and it has always been a wonderful surprise. The dipping sauces are unique and not to mention the freshness of the fish.

My girlfriend and I went here on our first night in the city and we were impressed. We started with the Tempura, which was amazing and continued with avocado roll for her and the California roll for myself. We were concerned at first since it took a bit for our waiter to come over to get our order, but he... More

What a find! Outstanding, fresh selection of sushi and appetizers. Great ambiance and probably one of the best Japanese restaurants in North America. I definitely want to return.

Have dined here several times and each time there seems to be something new to enjoy. This time we had lunch there instead and it was a good as ever. Prior to eating at Sho-Dan I would say: "I don't like sushi -- I've never tried it." Now I love sashimi and sushi. Sadly, I have found it impossible to... More

Ask them for their specials list and to describe them. Try the sushi pizza appetizer and lots more. Great restaurant.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
