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.

My boyfriend and I discovered Sake Bar Kushi a couple of months ago and we absolutely love it. Since that time we have brought numerous friends and decided to have a birthday party there. The staff were very accommodating and excellent with a large group. The food was amazing and we had a great time celebrating! Thanks Sake Bar Kushi and see you again soon! Sincerely, Jessica

Fantastic food, service, and atmosphere. This was my second time visiting within a weekend -it's that great. The staff are all very friendly and enthusiastic. Menu has izakaya items, sashimi, and sushi. Everything I tried was great. The staff have also offered an item on the house each time I've visited, which is wonderful. Also, $3 pints every day after 9pm. Can't beat it. My last minute reservation through bookenda didn't make its way to the restaurant, but they were able to seat my party very quickly, regardless.

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.
