Meet the owner

In Montreal, you can find just about any type of cuisine. There’s certainly no shortage of sushi places, and Jun i is regularly rated as one of the best in town. It makes sense when you consider that head chef and co-owner Junichi Ikematsu, the man whom the restaurant is named after, studied cooking in his home country of Japan and brought authentic techniques with him to Canada.

“Junichi is probably the best sushi chef in Montreal, to me at least,” says Jonathan Daunais, one of the three owners of Jun i along with Chef Junichi and Ped Phimphrakeo. The three founding members met when they were working at another Japanese restaurant called Soho, which had four locations throughout the city. Soho eventually went into bankruptcy, so Jonathan, Junichi and Ped decided to strike out on their own.

“(Junichi's) always working. He's always there," says Jonathan. "He always says welcome to people every time they come through the door. People feel at home here. We have lots of regular customers who come every week.”

Great food Waiter was a bit zealous with his moneris machine at the end and got on my nerves. He lost points on his tip for that. Service does not reflect what you would expect when eating that kind of quality food and I would suggest training their staff better. Food was absolutely fresh

Excellent and original Japanese food. The fish was incredibly fresh. The tuna tartare with truffle oil was exceptional, as was the curry roll and the special fish of the day we tried. Black cod appetizer was also outstanding. Highly recommend.

Jun I in the Plateau is for real sushi aficionados – their sashimi and nigiri is what they’re known for. A real treat is their cajun spiced soft shell crab maki, it is worth the trip to Jun I alone! The shell is crunchy, sweet and salty with a hint of spice from the Cajun seasoning. And the soya caramel adds an unexpected (but very much appreciated!) dimension of flavour. Try the spicy scallop too, you won’t regret it.
