Went here for a business lunch. As I'm not a big fan of seafood in general, I chose the Chicken Teryaki as my main dish and it was quite good. This restaurant is obviously aimed at the avid sushi lover and the person I dined...More

I'm an avid Japanese foodie, eating sushi most days and nights. Visiting the French enclave of Montreal I didn't hold up much hope of finding a decent Japanese restaurant. In fact, my first booking of the evening ended in "tears" as I walked out after...More

The sushi was really good. Great for a business lunch or a diner with friends. The fried hazelnut chocolate desert (basically fried Bueno bar) is DELICIOUS

I've had both really good and really not-so-good meals at Sho-Dan. I've been part of larger groups where the food has been less than mediocre. Some of their sushi plates are quite good, but you really have to know which ones.

This Japanese restaurant specialises in rolls of many different styles and tastes. Also a great wine list. Service and ambiance are great. Is a little pricey.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
