The fish is simply amazing. It is very fresh and the quality is extra! Wine list is also a plus. A bit overpriced for the same places around but very high quality and tasteful dishes so I do recommend

Continues to be one of the best Asian fusion places anywhere. No other place has anything that compares to the taste and presentation of the giant ebi shooter. They have a good selection of sushi and tasty and imaginative Makimono’s. Also tried the black cod which was very tasty. Given their menu they could offer more white wine by the glass. Service was great! Our server was very knowledgeable and able to offer good advice while navigating the menu. The overall rating would be higher except for the ambiance. Although the decor is nice the restaurant was empty during a night and time when you would expect otherwise.

The lentil crispy rice was my favourite - so delicious. I would love the recipe for this and am definitely going here again for this. My favourite drink is the mixologist Niche’s Caribou Crossing- spicy and so good. The Brussels sprouts are yum as well so check them out if you’re a veggie. We also had the potato tempura roll, which was pretty good. The Mochi ice-cream is way too sweet.

A pretty good sushi place, with some unique options that you won’t find in the typical sushi restaurant.
It is not cheap.

I am not a big fan of sashimi and maki rolls, but this restaurant converted me to a big fan.

I tried several platters and all of them were extremely good.

The flavours are well balanced and the service was one of the best in town.

Definitely going back and recommend to try.
