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.

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.

Shinka was a very nice place to visit in Ottawa, food & atmosphere was great. Service suffered & was not accurate repeatedly. To the waiters defence, it was only 1 for the entire restaurant. They would benefit from a few more staff.

The food here was incredible and in our case, worth the wait as we did not have anywhere urgent to go. However, it took about 50 minutes to get our food, with miso soup taking about 25 minutes. So just be aware that the wait will be long to get food but the rest of it was quite good. The server was friendly but clearly very busy. More staff would have helped.

A minor issue with one item ordered which was quickly corrected but overall the food was amazing, service was excellent and options were creative and high quality. Bill was $130 for 5 of us and we were full. I would highly recommend this sushi restaurant but definitely make a reservation as the seating is limited. We will be back!

Unimpressed and feel deceived by the high rating of this place. But perhaps this is because I am visiting from Vancouver where we are spoiled by the great sushi. The portions here are miniscule. Perhaps the intent is to make you meditate over each piece that you send down your throat, but it is really a tough call when pretty much every roll on the menu contains a generous amount of the crab sticks (you know, the imitation crab meat). The service is very slow, despite of small capacity. The waiter forgets to bring a miso soup. He sounds surprised I even ordered it. Forty six dollars later I am still hungry. So, honestly, enjoy your beloved sushi hole, Ottawa, and as for me, I'll go get some shawarma (remember, I am still hungry!) that this city really excels at :) P.S. When you see "caviar" in the menu, don't set your expectations too high. The chef probably watched too many Russian movies. In Vancouver those tiny, crunchy red fish eggs go by the name of "masago" if you know what I mean.

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.
