This hidden gem offers an original menu with lots of "cooked" sushi. I started with a seaweed salad which was very fresh and flavourful. I was told one of their most popular rolls is the Dynamite roll which I can understand after giving it a try. The chef also suggested a shrimp sring maki which was served with an wonderful dipping sauce. Their prices are very competitive and staff are very pleasant. They also do sushi to go and recommend that you call about 30 minutes before pick up.

It was actually the best sushi I have ever had in Ottawa...extremely FRESH I called ahead for take-out (work 3 blocks away). They actually recommend you call in advance to place your order for faster service...it's written on their take-out menu. Everything was ready when I arrived. I didn't eat in, but it's a cute little restaurant with a very clean appearance. The guys behind the counter were extremely pleasant.

Service at this restaurant is extremely slow. I would never have beleived it if I hadn't been there but on occasion this small restaurant of about 10 tables had all their customers asking to take their sushi lunches to go as they had arrived at 12/noon and not received any food by 1:00 pm. I gave it another try and we did manage to get our meal but you need a good 1.5 hours + for lunch at this small restaurant located in Ottawa's business core.

One of the best meals I’ve had at a sushi place in ages. Maybe even close to my top 5. The carpaccio was absolutely to die for. Constructive comments here: 1) Never tell the customer when they have to leave a) if there is a turnover constraint, make it clear in the reservation system and NOT when they sit down b) give the customer the opportunity to tell the restaurant how long they plan to stay if there is such constraint and allow them to describe the amount of food/drink they will order to make up for it (not using those words on the reservation system of course) Kyle

I understand that it is a small restaurant but the tables were a bit too close for comfort. Also I did not notice any music playing, because I could hear everyone else’s conversation even when using their indoor voice. The food was delicious! And the service was excellent.

Almost a perfect night out. Servers looked extremely busy. The wait to get the bill was a little longer than what we would have preferred. Other than that I highly recommend this location to anyone who enjoys eating sushi. Probably one of the best, if not, the best sushi restaurant in all of Ottawa.

Our reservations were not on file. Luckily there were some seats by the window for us. The food was great. The salmon carpaccio was on point! The food was seasoned well and we did not have to use soy sauce at all. Our server was very helpful in recommending some items and made sure we had everything we needed. Great place for date night. Definitely make reservations! It got crowded really fast and lots of people had to wait.

A bento box of satisfying sushi restaurants in Ottawa

The sushi here is “sublime,” says my friend Ira, after dining at New Generation. Being married to a food writer, he knows his sushi. But, then, Ira is merely confirming my neighbour Sylvie’s long-standing conviction that this is the best sushi in town. The fresh fish and innovative presentation win her over every time. The tiny downtown spot seats about two dozen guests – a few on white stools by the preparation bar, the rest at clean, unadorned tables. Try the unagi sushi bites or specialty rolls.
