Aoyama Sushi, Omakase (Review with Pictures)

abscissa | Oct 21, 2007 05:45 AM

Dinner was fabulous... we stuffed ourselves with everything and in the end, we were terrified that they were going to bring more food, because we wouldn't have been able to eat it! From start to finish, we took a full three hours and the entire time was spent eating... we didn't have to wait for anything.

As far as Toronto sushi goes, this is some of the best. I would reccomend reservations at least a day in advance, and definately order omakase. They will ask you how much when you make your reservation. Note that they are heavily focused on fish, no beef dishes. And I wish they would take the california rolls off the menu, it's like going into a steakhouse and ordering a big mac, but I guess it pays the bills at lunchtime when you pander to the people. Thankfully no california rolls came with our dinner. Also, the chef says he doesn't like people drinking beer and getting wasted -- we had sake which strictly speaking is also a no-no :) I do not reccomend simply ordering off the menu here. You won't be able to read it anyway. You have to go for omakase!!

I paid $75/pp for omakase, reservations 1 day in advance.

Apologies to all those who suffered through the tacky photo flashes :) Check out the pictures of everything we ate here:
