Meet the owner

When sushi first hit the North American dining scene, it caught on like wildfire, making it the hallmark of Japanese cuisine in the West. But while the popularity of sushi grew, other cultural and culinary treasures from Japan went largely unnoticed.

After a long day at the office, it's customary for Japanese workers to head to the Izakaya, or Japanese pub, to unwind with a drink and Japanese tapas. While popular in the Land of the Rising Sun, Izakayas are a rare find in North America, with just a handful sprinkled across the continent, and only a few to be found in Canada. And that's just what inspired Patrick Fung and Chris Côté, two Montrealers, to start one on the city's west side. "We wanted to do something different and create something authentically Japanese," says Patrick.

Imadake, with its pub-style decor and menu, opened its doors in the summer of 2011 to introduce visitors to a little-known side of Japanese culture and cuisine. “For the first few months, it was quiet," says Kevin Fung, Imadake's Operations Manager. "But the Montreal Gazette wrote a great review and the concept took off."

    The hospitality is very nice, they've apologized profusely for making us wait (which wasn't so bad, we waited about 15 minutes) and made sure we were happy with everything. Very nice vibe and friendly staff.

    Service was fast but no one asked how our meal was. At which we would’ve said that the oysters were rancid, resulting in my husband almost throwing up at the table and not being able to eat the rest of our meal. The salad we had to start was good, but none of the seafood tasted fresh (either the tuna or salmon). Won’t be returning and would not recommend.

    Because it's ladys day they put some kitch decorations but I imagine without plastic palm tree lights and beach umbrellas ambiance is decent in general. Service was over responsive they're walking around and keep asking if my drink is over I don't know the reason but they're looking anxious when I was there. Everyone has a right to be anxious after all:) food and drinks come timely and they're, I believe, trying to do their best. So it's a nice place

    We had an absolutely wonderful time. It was our wedding anniversary and we could not have asked for a better time. We’re recently back from a vacation in Japan. We really wanted to relive our memories from Tokyo, and this was exactly that. Great food from A to Z. And the servers were great as well! Thanks to the whole team!

    We love this place. The small plate style makes it such a flexible way to eat with a big group. Everyone can find something they like from the picky teenager who doesn’t eat meat, the grandma who can’t handle spice to the adventurous one who goes for octopus. Everything was yummy - I especially liked the tuna appetizer and the pork dumplings, and it’s a fun atmosphere. On weekend it can get quite raucous - with sake bombs flying and lots of joyful energy from staff and customers alike.

    My cousins and I were visiting Montreal after our skiing trip and were looking for good food at a reasonable price that we couldn't find at home in Toronto. We were so lucky to have stumbled upon Imadake. We made reservations but showed up early. Thankfully they were very accommodating and allowed us to dine earlier than our reservation. We were celebrating my cousin-in-law's milestone birthday so wanted the dining experience to be memorable. I must say the food did not disappoint. Many dishes were so unique and service was great. A must try if you are visiting and I would recommend making reservations! We were there on a Thursday and it was packed by 8pm.

    Too expensive. Food is okay, and way too overpriced. Ramen broth was tasteless. Service was slow and they didn’t seem to really care. Had to ask for glasses of water halfway through meal.

    We were told the table we reserved last until 8PM, they rushed the service and made us leave at 7PM since we finished what we ordered and didn’t want to order extra at that moment.

    Imadake is the home of sake bombs, Japanese izakaya delicacies, and ramen. It’s the perfect spot to not only eat dinner, but also continue your night and getting a little wild. They have traditional pork belly ramen, that you can enjoy in their original or miso broth. However, our favourite is their rare steak ramen, the red beef is cooked ever so slightly from the heat of the broth. Since you’re at Imadake, enjoy your bowl of ramen with their takoyaki (octopus balls) and their okonomiyaki (seafood pancake).

    Imadake is a Japanese izakaya located in downtown Montreal. Our favourite dishes include their deep-fried chicken skin, their fried goat cheese, and their takoyaki (octopus balls). We’re also staunch supporters of Imadake’s sake bombs! Their bar is open until 3 am but their kitchen is open until 1 am on Friday and Saturday, although some dishes like their ramen are only available until around 11:30 pm.
