We were in a closed-in booth and the front door was opposite letting in blasts of cold air - not nice. he service here is always prompt and courteous. The food quality is generally uneven - sometimes very good, others acceptable.

Food was good, service friendly, nice setting at the place. Music was too loud for me personally, it got a bit better after we moved away from the speaker right above our heads. Shall try again

We sat Japanese style for the first time here; pleasant but the seat cushions would be better with backs, as in some Japanese restaurants. Service here is always attentive. The dishes were slightly better than previous visits - the spicy mayonnaise shrimp were excellent - nicely crisp, but the rice was dry and dull - not Japanese style at all. Overall an enjoyable meal.

I am aware that we could only enter to the back room when all group member are together, but we had a senior who couldn't make it on time and we were told we still have to wait until he gets there. I explained the situation and you let us in at the end, but we ended up loosing almost 30 min. for 2 hours booking. I don't think the policy doesn't really make sense, the more time we loose, the more order you would loose. we could have ordered more food & drink but we didn't have enough time to do so. The waiter was great though. The hamachi was a special for the day but it was dry.

It's one of the awesome places in Toronto. We currently go to this restaurant to grab a 2.75-pint beer every time. looooove it. If you never been there, just try it. Good atmosphere, some booth, and a little space. Good to talk and chill.

Found the AJI was not as fresh this time. The rest was great! Service is top notch. Washroom equipped with essentials for women, no change table for children. Wish it was more kids-friendly.

This place was a real gem to find in mid-town. The atmosphere is great , and the service is hands down the best. They are probably the only place in Toronto that offer warm towels to clean your hands once you sit down! The quality of food is fresh and sushi is beautifully plated. They offer some tapas style items that are nice when you want a variety. If you are a sake lover, they have a great selection ...from the low to the very high end. Kid friendly and we saw multiple families with their kids. The servers immediately brought out the kiddie plates and utensils for the table. Try this place, you will not be disappointed! Highly recommend.

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.
