This place is always awesome. The food is fantastic. Whether you’re doing sushi or teppenyaki style dinner it’s excellent. Service is always good too and priced very well considering it’s in Yorkville.

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
