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

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.
