The interior of the restaurant is very cute so when we entered we were pleasantly surprised... I will say that the menu which was written was very vague. I ordered a few things I thought I would recognize and was totally confused when they came...
Chicken yakitori was one stick of sliced chicken and a few mixed vegetables ...the picture showed the classic 3 sticks with plump chicken and green onion...it was okay, but i was confused because it was so obviously not what i had thought i was getting...
Assorted tempura was mostly all huge slices of yam! huuuggeee yam!! I could only eat half of 1 of the yam slices, they were way too big and oily...that was unfortunate because it was a waste of a lot of yams which we didnt eat...
Long story short..the staff was very nice but the menu was very misleading and the food was confusing.

what a great place!
great price for great food! i love buying the fresh items and i also love the groceries!
fujiya, i only have one request, please stop putting raw onions in the chicken katsu roll, they're super spicy and cut too big, i always end up picking them out and ruining the roll (;_;) (;_;) (;_;) (;_;) (;_;) (;_;)

first i must say i am japanese, from japan, and am living in canada as a sushi chef myself. this kind of restaurant gives sushi (and japanese food) a bad name and it really makes me sad to see how this restaurant can represent japanese culture so badly.
. there was no friendly greeting from the sushi bar (i sat at the bar and it wasnt busy...) the 2 chefs were also very dull and looked very gloomy...
. instead of passing us our food the chef placed it on a side table where it sat (and the nori got soggy) for 5 minutes before the waitress walked round about to give it to us (pointless and annoying).
. all the sushi was cut in unmatching sizes
. all the sushi was falling apart and mushed into weird shapes (like triangles and squished)
. the cucumber slices in the rolls were so thick it was stupid!
. the sushi was expensive!
. the menu was tiny!
honestly i was excited to go because it was always busy and crowded and i have only heard good things but i would never go back.
i do not recommend it.
