Seasonal food, is simply an art watch the master sushi owner I guess, prepare and explain all different dishes...my favourites, rice with salmon egg and tuna tartare( great combination) and the 2 declination of tuna...A little modest suggestion, extend and do more attractive wine selection...More

This restaurant was highly recommended by a friend, who goes to Japan quite often. I've had some amazing meals in Japan, and this ranks right up there. Everything from the ambiance to the food and service was excellent. Fish quality was superb, and being able...More

First, I must take issue with some of the comments in the Average reviews posted previously. "fresher elsewhere" "sameness of taste" "too much wasabi" "good but not outstanding" - none of these remarks could be further from the truth. Kaiseki Yu-Zen Hashimoto, Kaji, and Yasu...More

This maybe one of the best meals I've had in my life - and I've had a lot of meals. The space is very low key, but you know you're in for something special. The chefs come out, and it's like a performance. But way...More

Small restaurant that accommodates about 18 patrons, but with superb food and service. In my opinion, probably the best sushi and sashimi in the city. Only one menu is served, “Omasake” or chef’s choice; your only option is whether you like to add the premium...More

Yasu is imo, the best sushi restaurant in Toronto. I prefer it over many of the popular high-end spots like Kaji and JaBistro. While those places offer non-sushi courses and more unique options like aburi as part of their omakase, Yasu offers only edo style...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
