Always fresh. That's what's most important. However, it's also very good. They have some unique & really excellent Maki rolls I love, East End Maki is my favorite! Menu is available online for take out, & it's decently quick. Service is friendly & on the ball. They remember their customers after 2 visit which shows they care. The decor is nice, not fancy but nice. It's a small place but they have a sushi bar & some private tables. The best sushi place I have found in the beaches.
The one time we dined there we left in shock by how rudely we were treated. When we first came in they didn't seem too welcoming with the this-is-a-high-end-restaurant-you-don't-belong-here kind of attitude. Our conversation was then brutally interrupted over and over again by the waitress over most of the times nothing and she didn't once apologize.
Apart from that, my other thoughts were 1) the location is great you can stroll along the beaches after dining. 2) The food was good but I didn't find it up to its reputation here. 3) Parking can be troublesome if you go there at peak time and you don't know the area well.
I'm telling you people in Toronto, YUMEI SUSHI is...
I'm telling you people in Toronto, YUMEI SUSHI is the best place for sushi. The price might be a little more than what you'd like to pay but it is well worth every penny as every other review has stated. The ONLY sushi place I enjoy going back to on a regular basis. Sat in one of them booth units during my last visit and it's more intimate, private. GREAT FOOD, NICE PRICE, EASY TO GET TO (501 Queen, 24H!!!)
I usually order the chirashi, don buri or sashimi dinner.
Have had the sea urchin a la carte and a few of their rolls
Sampled the cold soba which is VERY nice in the summer months.
AT LEAST VISIT ONCE but I bet you'll be back!!!
I must say I wouldn't want to dine any where else...
