A good chicken teriyaki, fresh sashimi, excellent miso soup and crisp salads all form part of the special lunchtime menu. Good attentive service. Large pleasant enough space and white tablecloths. We liked it.

Perfect venue for a date night

Pros:
The first restaurant my wife and I come to whenever we're in Montreal, it's that good.
Great ambiance with a lot of options for drinks and sushi
Very helpful waiters, willing to take time to explain all options to you
Great appetizers, with several options

Cons:
Portions are not so big and so you may want to get an appetizer with your main dish

This was my second visit to Shodan but it will be my last. The service was extremely slow. The waiters had to be badgered in order to get our food. Nothing changed from course to course. Each time the waiter had to be asked more than once where the food was. When the food did arrive the portions were sparse, the sushi rolls were filled with a lot of lettuce or fillers and very skimpy on the fish. The beef teriyaki was the same. The beef was skimpy leaving the plate filled with fried onions.

Given the rating of this restaurant and the recommendation from the Sofitel concierge put hopes were high.
All I can say is average. everything was bland with the same salmon mixture in everything. An entry level sushi restaurant with a lack of flavors snd imagination.
The best part of our meal was the sever friendly and attentive. Much better options in the city. In fact we were still craving creative city sushi so the next day we went to our old favorite in Montreal Tatami; outstanding every dish sung!

There was lot of innovative and unique items on the menu but we didn't think they were that impressive taste wise. The first roll we had actually had a burrito type of feel.

When ever we try a new sushi place we always try to get something we've never had before and on this visit that was the sea urchin. It was gross and possibly tainted the over all experience. The waiter was very nice and helpful. He had actually warned us that the sea urchin was not for everyone.

It was also disappointing that there were TV's in the dining area. It definitely detracted from the overall atmosphere.
