We were a group of 7 friends, who love coming to Kushi for the atmosphere and the food. At the beginning of service, we were told there would be 1 bill - no problem. When the bill arrived, we were told it had to be 1 payment. A couple people had cash, while others were counting on using debit. We were told that there wasn't at ATM on site, but there was one a block west at the gas station. The food and atmosphere is great! However, there are many great restaurants in the city - to keep customers, Kushi needs to rework their payment policies, so that the last impression fits the first.

sucks sucks sucks!!! I booked for my company dinner for 15 people. Owner told me he needs to see me in person in order for me to book for 15 people. Are you @#$@#ing kidding me??? Apparently I was not the only one who had difficulties of reserving more than 4 people. I guess the Owner doesn't see the value of group?? then don't @#$#ing put reservation available online for more than 4 person. Just don't get reservation then... What the @#$@#$

This was my first visit and my gf's second visit to Sake Bar Kushi. We were seated in the tatami room in the back, which was a nice change from the standard bar tables at the front. However, we were given a table that was right under the only speaker in the room, which also happened to be set at a high volume. This wouldn't be too bad if the room was packed and lively, but when it was just the two of us, it dulled the experience. Service was overall good. Our waitress was speedy and happy to answer any questions. The food was mostly satisfactory, with one shining star out of the group. Green bean tempura and cucumber slices were provided on the house, and they were good. We also ordered the yakitori set and were dissapointed that 1) the skewers were at best lukewarm and at worst cool, and 2) they looked like they were baked instead of cooked over a gas/charcoal grill. Finally, the sushi moriawase was mainly quantity over quality, where you received excessively large pieces of fish that were difficult to eat in one bite. Given the size of the fish slices, they could have made two pieces of sushi instead of one large piece. The best dish of the night was the hamachi collar. It was cooked perfectly and we really enjoyed the dish. If you're hankering for izakaya food, Sake Bar Kushi will satisfy that itch. It's a bit of an extra walk from Yonge & Eglinton but for locals this is a good spot.

We are frequent guests at this restaurant and the food was not up to their usual standard. The shrimp tempura were had a reconstituted texture and the tuna special was previously frozen.

Toronto’s most authentic izakaya experiences

Toronto’s most authentic izakaya experiences

One of Yonge and Eglinton’s most excellent date spots, Sake Bar Kushi boasts a dark, dreamy interior paired with an expansive array of small izakaya dishes. Kushi is the kind of place that demands a long sitting, the time easily filled with chatting and masticating through the menu. Start with the barbecued unagi (eel), on to takoyaki (deep-friend octopus dumplings), then hokke (grilled mackerel), a little bit of Toro sashimi (tuna belly, oh the tuna belly!) and wrap up with a chicken katsu don (a rice bowl with deep fried chicken, egg, and onion) – keeping customers Buddha-bellied and happy.

Great vegetarian dishes around Yonge and Eglinton

Great vegetarian dishes around Yonge and Eglinton

Tempura does amazing things to vegetables. A lightly-battered vegetable of your choice is deep-fried until crisp and golden. The result is a crunchy morsel of tender goodness. Order that on top of some vegetarian rolls and a bottle of sake (rice wine for those with gluten allergies). With tapas-style offerings on the menu, there are plenty of opportunities to explore the vegetarian side of Japanese cuisine.
