930 Sushi - King W @ Strachan

I went to its predecessor Red Fuji Sushi since it was steps from my place, and was not very impressed, now re-opened about 2 weeks ago I am so happy to have to this tiny place (2 small tables for 2, so really a take out joint) close by. The Japanese Chef and his wife who run it are charming and very friendly. The fish is fresh (salmon sashimi reminiscent of butter fish) and generous, rolls not too heavy on the rice and they have given me little samples of items I have never tried before but will order in the future. While talking to him (sorry I don't know his name!) about why he opened his own place (he was working in Japan and then here under someone else here in TO) he said that he'd rather have a small place with less rent overhead and spend the money on higher quality food...sounds good to me!...And as if I wasn't sold already, my gf was in there last night and a few guys rolled in, friends of the Chef, one was introduced to her as a Chef from Lai Toh Heen (newly opened sister location on Mt Pleasant to Lai Wah Heen) she said he was very modest and he remarked that his friend here at 930 does sushi his own way but he does it properly. Lastly, service and attention is great too, when she tried to give up her seat to these guys since she was just waiting for takeout she was told to stay seated because she was the client and was the most important...

I hope some more CH's check this place out, I'd like to hear what you had and your thoughts...they are open 7 days a week and late, I think until around 11pm *sweet!*...located at 930 King W across from Shoppers Drug Mart just east of the Esso station...

*the only miss has been the sushi pizza, the deep fried rice cake was super hard, but I think it was a mistake, i showed up within 2 hours of them opening, I will try it again...
