It was all good, we ate too much because it was all so good. We tried the calamari, the tempura, and the gyoza to start; they were all great. Then we tried the nigiri and a few rolls. I'm not going to lie, it was a bit pricey, but it was very good sushi. Very fresh and well presented. It's... More

We came here for diner on our second night in Montreal and it was unreal. The rolls are unique and the restaurant offers a lot of different authentic Japanese menu options. Also it is right across from the Notre Dame Cathedral which is very cool

My partner and I came here on Valentine's Day and our experience was so UNREAL that we have literally booked a table for next week. Every single aspect of our meal was perfect. Absolutely no dish or drink had a single flaw and we sat through dinner feeling as though we didn't deserve to be there. I have a reputation... More

It had slices of strawberry on top and it was the most refreshing thing. I now crave sushi all of the time because of this wonderful place. If you're a traveling to Montreal,... More

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.
