The restaurant is conveniently located near the parliment. The decor is beautiful, however the food that was served to us was awful. The teryiaki salmon was overcooked, the chef's selection of sushis was bland and not up to standards (tasteless rice) with no sign of originality. I have had better sushi in shopping mall sushi places... the miso soup tasted... More

I have been coming to this Japanese Restaurant for years and I have to say they have the best Japanese food I have experienced! The people are very friendly and helpful and they have an extensive menu. I have been told by those who know that they have the best sushi and tampura chefs in town. If you want the... More

The place was close to our hotel. We went there for dinner based on the good web reviews, however we were disappointed. The service was good, the staff was kind, but the food was average for the price. I am really a sushi lover and these ones were not satisfying, as well as the tempura and the rest of our... More

This restaurant has been in Ottawa a while and it is the only authentic Japanese restaurant that I know of in Ottawa. It is owned/operated by Japanese and the chef is Japanese. The food is excellent and prepared in the traditional Japanese way. They serve sushi and cooked dishes such as Tonkatsu, Tempura, Shabu-Shabu etc I had a Sake sampler... More

I decided to take my wife here for a quite lunch with hopes it would be a wonderful experience. From the time we walked into the restaurant until the time we left, my wife and I enjoyed ourselves immensely. The service was excellent. As mention in other reviews, my wife and I were left to our own privacy, but the... More

first time trying this restaurant near Sheraton. Very good food and lots of options from sushi to soft shell crab. We had six people for dinner and service and price were both excellent. Would recommend for any occasion.

The service was amazing from the time we stepped in to the time we walked out. The servers were attentive, polite, professional, and brought things out promptly. The food was nothing spectacular, but it's good enough to satisfy a sushi craving even for those of us who are accustomed to high quality, authentic sushi for a better price. One little... More

Great selection in the menu, fast and friendly service, convenient location downtown. I did not went there, but they have gorgeous private rooms downstairs, consider those if you have a group dinner.

In ottawa you can find many Sushi places but if you want a good Sushi, this is the place to go. Nothing in this restaurant decor suggest about the quality of the Sushi. We came to celebrate a birthday party and received one of the traditional privet rooms below. Everything from the miso soup up to the Sushi was delicious.... More
