Used to be better...

This place used to be good, but it has gone downhill over the last few months. The salmon used for the Philadelphia roll is VERY low grade fatty skin salmon. The spicy scallop roll is mushed-up fish??? with a very few pieces of scallop in there. I've eaten there many times, and I've eaten sushi all over the GTA and the world. Many items are NOT worth the price any more. Very sad.

Great Deal

I work in the area and forgot to bring lunch one day. Lucky for me Ni Ji is closeby. The lunch specials are fantastic. I spent $12 and got a huge bento box of Teriyaki Chicken and Tempura along with Miso soup, salad, edamame, seeweed salad, deep fried tofu, california rolls, rice soup, rice, glass noodle and green tea. Such a great deal! Plus it tasted good too! Get there early for lunch...by the time I left, there was a waiting line that went out the front door!

Not what I was craving

I was craving some good Japanese Food that wasn't AYCE so we tried this place. Not what I was craving, that is for sure. My favorate dish is shrimp tempura. It was soggy as were the vegge tempura. The salad is teeny tiny. And I was not too thrilled with the rice soup..goopy. Hubbies sushi dinner had way too much salmon. I didn't finish my food . I went home and had a p and j sandwich.

It is an overall great restaurant. I love the food because it is made by actual Janpanese and it taste like orginal Japanese food. The food is pretty fresh and My friend and I are really full. The astmosphere is okay. The place is really small and quite nice. The menu was really limited (no variety) and is not well designed. But the food that they served there is great. Services is okay, sometimes I'm not sure what they are telling us because of the accent, but they are friendly and they don't force you to pay tips.

The service at this restaurant is FANTASTIC! My family and I visit this restaurant a lot whenever we celebrate birthdays. On our last visit, we ordered the family boat which is a meal for six. We were a party of 8 and the waitress gave us all a serving, without leaving anyone out. The fish....mmmm so delicious. Its fresh and really tasty! Overall, this restaurant is good in my books!

I love Niji Sushi! Great food, great bang for the buck! When you dine-in, they serve you extra appetizers for free (ie. seaweed w/ hot sauce, fried mackarel and this really yummy chicken porridge). Portions are generous and delicious. You're sure to be full by the end of your meal. Almost always I have to take home leftovers. In addition, they also have a few Korean dishes in their menu (I think the owners are Korean?) such as bimbimbap. Customer service is great, and almost always consistent. Only once or twice when it was really busy we had to wait really long. The place is also clean and sanitary, which is very important to me when dining in as I can't enjoy even the best food if the environment is disgusting. Pick-up orders are always ready when they say they're going to be ready. Overall in terms of quality of food, price and customer service, I would say Niji is the best place to go for sushi in the Scarborough area. Highly recommended.

Thumbs up

TBH, when I first walked into the restaurant, I didn't expect much. The place was quiet and fairly small. My friend and I looked through the menu and decided to order the love boat for two.....never had it before, but we thought we'd give it a try. ANYHOW, we started off with salad, miso soup, as well as a few pieces of makarel (MMM!!). After that came the boat, then BULGOGI (my favourite :D). Dessert was green tea ice cream, as well as a few slices of orange. The service was great. It's a really cozy place, and the environment is nice and close to home (at least for me). I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone who wants a quiet sit down dinner.

My wife and I stopped by after going to the movies. We had always commented on the restaurant when driving by so decided to try it. It was pretty busy inside. We only really wanted a snack so were ordered the Sushi Pizza, Tempura, and the Sushi Appetizer. First off the tea was barely that, very weak stuff. The Sushi Appetizer was quite good but that was about it. The tempura was really greasy and goopy, far from crispy and flakey like it should be. Sushi pizza is one of my all time favourite dishes, unfortunately the Ni Ji version was truly horrible. In fact inedible. I had to go buy some candy in order to get the taste of the sushi pizza out of my mouth. Service was ok at best.

Overall: A fantastic dining experience. High quality food and friendly service in a cozy family business setting. Location: very easy to find right on the Ellsmere and Midland intersection. Parking: very easy at the back of the restaurant, accessible from both of the roads. Food: The bantos came with salad and 2 different kinds of soup as for entree and they were delicious, an excellent intro into the main course which was served on a banto tray with compartments. Each compartment contained either sushi or california rolls, rice or vermicelli, etc. and the main dish that you ordered for example chicken teriyaki. We were amazed how all of these little dishes complemented together so finely that we just felt full but not sick of the food. We were also impressed with the very fresh salmon and tuna sushi. In the end we were too full so had to pack home some of the california rolls. Service: the waitresses were friendly. The food came rather soon, or a lot sooner than in some of our dining experiences. Price: very reasonable. Definitely good value.

Food is fresh, and you will get good value. The service is excellent. Sushi is excellent quality. You can find cheaper sushi in the city, but you won't get the quality that you will find in Ni Ji.

I ordered Bento Box 1....it was delicious and so filling i found that i counldn't even finish my food because i was struggling to do... We were started off with some tea, followed by 2 different kinds of soup and then a salad that was muey delicious. My food was fresh and delicious. I had 6 sushi rolls that were a variety, teriyaki salmon which was extremely delicious and well cooked, tempura veggies, white rice, and glass noodles. After all that food, we were given some tasty oranges that were cut in a really beautiful design.

This was my first visit to Ni Ji with my family. I had the bulgogi and it was delicious. The california rolls and salmon sushi that came with the bento are yummy. Definitely good value for your money. The service was below average. There were only two waitresses serving the entire restaurant and it was very busy that evening. However, once we ordered, the food came out rather quickly but we didn't see our server again until we had our dessert. This is definitely one of the better sushi restaurant in Scarborough but they should hire more help.

Amazing restaurant to find in the heart of Scarborough. The sushi is fresh and delicious and the food is good value for money. Service is friendly and quick and they sometimes throw in free miso soup, barbecued eel, and fried tofu on the house! Definately compares to, if not outshines many sushi restaurants downtown. Great sushi pizza!

The food in general was good and the servers were very friendly. The maki tended to be a little small - especially the dynamite maki. I'm used to dynamite maki being quite a bit larger. The dynamite maki was around the same size as the regular califronia rolls. The spicy tuna rolls were not as spicy as I would have liked. The sashimi and sushi were top grade - very good quality. The chicken teriyaki was prepared much differently from what I'm used to, but was also very nice. All in all, it was a good experience especially for a more suburban restaurant.
