First time coming to the restaurant. They were very nice and even gave us 2 free appetizers to start. They have a nice selection of small plates and they are very nicely priced so it doesn't hurt your wallet too much even if you wanted to try a little of everything. It all tasted great. Would definitely come back again to try the rest of the menu.

When we arrived the host said they didn’t have a reservation for me. I showed them my reservation confirmation email from ypdine/bookenda it but didn’t make a difference. All the tables were reserved for others so we got put at a bar-like table with stools seated next to each other which wasn’t ideal. The restaurant and/or bookenda should get this issue sorted out.

This is a higher than average priced sushi/Izakaya place but well worth the money. Everything is top notch. The servers are very helpful and friendly and all the food is very high quality. Highly recommend.

This place is the most authentic Japanese cuisine that I had outside Japan. The sake assortment is second to none in the city!

Yakitori is the main menu of this restaurant as it’s name, Gushi in Japanese. Not good. Dry chicken and small quantity on each stick. “ Tare” sauce on Yakitori is not good even. Owner needs to improve a lot otherwise no Japanese or Asian customer will come back. Staffs are all very attentive.

Service was excellent. I would have given a 5 but they forgot one dish on our order. They did make up for it with a welcome appetizer. Will be back and would definitely recommend.

Great place and solid service. Just wish they could find a way to split our bill (we asked before our server took our order) instead of having us pick out which items we ate.

I made a reservation and even got a confirmation number but they couldn't seat me and said I had to wait even though I had made a reservation several hours beforehand. We just left because the wait was too long.

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.
