This is an unassuming place, with high quality fresh fish, some shipped in from Osaka. My wife and I live in the building upstairs from here, so we eat here quite regularly. And we are always happy. Main tips:
(1) Get the fresh fish from Osaka that they advertise on the white board. We always get the king salmon as sashimi, sometimes the amberjack.
(2) The clam miso soup is simple but somehow energizing -- we get it pretty much every time.
(3) Speaking of mollusks, we like the surf clam and the scallops.
(4) My wife is from a country where they eat a lot of roe, and she always gets the ikura.

They're not flashy or gimmicky. The main thing they're selling is the freshness of the fish. We've also always had good service: the servers are aware of us and available but unobtrusive.

Service was friendly and accommodating.

Chirashi don was tasty and my friend who couldn’t enjoy the raw fish due to pregnancy loved the cooked rolls.

Dropped in for lunch. The place is clean and welcoming, and along a more quiet section of Whyte Ave. The sushi bar looked promising and there was a list of special fish, which we did not try. We sat by a bright window...the chairs are solid metal frame and weigh a ton. The menu(s) offer a lot of the usual variety from appetizers to sushi to donburi to ramen. It was clear that this was formulaic to the previous generation of fuller service Japanese restaurants. Given the name, we were hoping for a great ramen stop, but the menu and place did not inspire us to even try the ramen. In fact, in a food court like sense, we just ordered bento boxes. The accompanying miso soup was whitish instead of miso coloured but was pleasant, and the salad was fresh but more in keeping with the 70's steak house iceberg lettuce salads with a drizzle of thinned mayonnaise. The box had tempura (which was quite good), rice (ok but not steaming), teriyaki chicken (good grill flavour, but overcooked to slight dry), and some salmon/tuna/snapper sashimi (fresh enough but somewhat flavourless). The prices were ok for the meal at about $13 per box. If this were a food court, I'd be happy, but there are many choices further down the street that are more refreshed.

The chicken udon soup is about average, taste wise and quality wise. The photo on the menu showed three times more chicken than what we got, and it was also overcooked.

The Tokyo Platter of assorted sushi and sashimi was generous in size but the taste was just average. Nothing really special that would make it a standout amongst other Japanese restaurants.

Beef Sashimi was delicious and spicy, but they were cut "extremely" thin. Never seen meat cut so thin before, even thinner than shaved cold sandwich meats.

Overall we felt it was about a 6.5 to 7.0 rating.

Came in for Ramen in cold winter day.

Visited for lunch on 31st December. Parking on the street was not difficult. Ramen was served promptly but lady serving was not friendly. Only we and another group was there and she can afford to be more pleasant.

The menu was extensive and prices reasonable. We had Tonkotsu Ramen and Spicy Chicken Ramen. The Chicken was spicy and tasty – we will try shushi next time.
