As always Kushi provided us with a great evening. I brought my mom who had never had Izakaya food and she loved it. Everything was tasty and service was impeccable as always. Thank you!

Sake Bar Kushi is a masterpiece. It's on another level compared to competitors like guu or don don, Kushi is completely superior and entirely lacks the pretentious airs of the aforementioned places. It balances an incredible atmosphere with constantly excellent food and perfect service. This is without a doubt my favorite restaurant in Toronto and that opinion spreads infectiously to all I've brought here. If it wasn't blatently obvious at this point, I highly recommend Sake Bar Kushi.

Seated us even though we were early for our reservation by 20 minutes :) the owner even came to our table and gave us an altogether too generous gift. We have been coming for 4 years now and they always take good care of us. We will be back very soon!

Kushi never lets me down- the food is always excellent, the servers are always so friendly, great at their jobs and are just generally adorable people who deserve big tips. Back of house always sends out beautiful dishes and they always find a way to hook you up with a little something extra. Kushi is the greatest saving grace in The Eglinton Way food scene right now, no hyperbole. From a fellow culinary professional, arigatou gozaimasu!

Had a great time here - great sushi and 1,3,5,7 menu. The servers were very fast and welcome us many times for our first visit. We even received a number of complimentary plates from the kitchen! Loved having the $3 Sapporo after 9pm!

This was our 2ND time coming here. The staff were very lovely and welcoming and the food was delicious. The dishes are great for sharing. We had around 8 dishes shared between the 2 of us. The portions were not underwhelming and the prices were reasonable for us to try a variety, which we certainly took an advantage of. Most definitely will be back.

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 @#$@#$

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.
