Have been to this place many times when they were at their old Scarboro location. Sushi and Sashimi were at its best with reasonable price. Ever since they moved to Woodbine, they changed the menu and inflated the price a lot....yes a lot. Now it...More

We’ve been going to this restaurant for 4 months now and it never disappointed. The sushi is amazing - one of the best I’ve had in Toronto so far. The tempura is very good too- not too oily like in other places... very enjoyable actually......More

As a fan of raw fish I decided on a midweek lunch here and was so glad I'd made the journey out from downtown Toronto. The place is small, and most people were at the counter with a great view of the action. It is...More

Best hand roll and sushi. Have been coming for years although it’s gotten more expensive lately especially when they moved... wouldn’t say it’s valuable but definitely good quality.

All the appetizers we ordered was great. The gyutongue was so tender and soft. Roasted duck was unique. Entrees were good but didn’t stand out as much compare to the appetizers.

No, it isn't -- we usually order an appetizer or two, miso soup and then the Jyo sushi, which is enough food. The quality is outstanding. You won't be disappointed if you like quality sushi.
