Quick review on Sushi Kaji

jkat | Dec 8, 2009 11:21 AM

Hey all,

I took my wife to Sushi Kaji this past weekend for a belated birthday dinner. I came across the restaurant from a post on this board.

We tend to eat at many of the nicer restaurants in the city.

The food was good. I wouldn't say earth shattering good, but good. Some parts were delicious (cellophane wrapped duck) and some were just ok. The sushi was good and fresh.

Here's the problem, for a $330 dinner, I would have preferred a much nicer restaurant. The sushi place we typically go to (Ginza - Yonge and Clark) where we eat for $40 is much, much nicer than Sushi Kaji.

The floor is white ceramic tiles (many have cracks) and the ceiling is the same drop ceiling I have in my office at work. The candle on the table probably cost $2. The chairs were perhaps purchased in the 80's.

I know you go to restaurants to eat, but the decor makes a difference. We don't eat with our eyes closed.

I would recommend Ki (at half the price) ten times out of ten compared to Sushi Kaji.

I liked it, but the overall experience goes down a few notches because of the "scene". Factor in the price, and it goes a few more notches still.

Just my $0.02.
