If you are looking for a quite place this is not the place. But they do have good snacks with cocktails or wine beer you can choose from. Spent around 120 for a group of four for 4 rounds of alcohol plus food.

This is one of my favorite places in Toronto. Wonderful Japanese food that goes well with Sake/beer, great music (Japanese songs from the 90's, such as theme songs from Slam Dunk and Eva). The atmosphere is also relaxing. I would recommend Beef Tataki, Grilled Beef...More

There is some authentic shiz going on here! I've walked by many times, and even tried walk-in - learned my lesson and made reservations instead. The staff is friendly, but their English is not the best. No problem, just point to the items in the...More

In this unassuming Japanese restaurant near the UToronto I think I was the only non-Japanese. I have the distinct feeling that my relatively lower rating may have been that I failed to connect with something culturally significant. The staff was kind and helpful. My plate...More

Enjoyed a very relaxed, casual but tasty dinner here tonight, Izakaya style. Comparing with those regular Izakaya places, this one was more laid back, quieter, and music was not that noisy.. Modern interior decor, cozy, with a small patio connected for options of seating in...More

The food was soooo good here, especially the salad! It's so refreshing and the flavours just explode in your mouth. We were here for the happy hours from 5-6pm, where you order a drink and their top recommended dishes are 5 dollars each (regular price...More

Great! Real izakaya style food at reasonable prices. Wednesdays they make tonkotsu ramen, the best I've had outside Japan so far.

As you head up Yonge Street away from Downtown Toronto one begins to believe that within the rash of ethnic eating places, some of these may be very good. Staring at the menus, and looking inside more negative emotions take hold; they may be good,...More

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
