Green Leaf Sushi serves fresh, creative and quality sushi, sashimi and more.
I think this is the best sushi place among the many on Broadway between Macdonald and Alma. There must be around 10 and all mostly operated by non-japanese. This is a Korean run resto. They have many rolls with funny names just like the Eatery across the street. Started with their special of the night, appy tuna/wild salamon sashimi - very large pieces and good along with a spicy shrimp tempura roll. The combo was $15. Enough for 1 person. Added a seaweed salad ($5), just ok, the same one you can buy bulk at costco. Added another fancy chopped scallop roll ($8ish) which was pretty good. Then had an amebi (sweet shrimp) which was really good and they deep fried the head for you to eat as well. Was really fresh. Also a chopped scallop nigri which was fully packed. Think the nigri was $3. Resto was busy for a weeknight and service was spotty. Place is nice and bright but pretty basic. Overall would return for takeout or dine in.
I live close by and have eaten there many times, on the premises as well as take out (phoning in the order and ordering in person). The food is really great, and I get the feeling it's because the guys who make it put a lot of care (maybe love too but it sounds cheesy) into it. Consistently fresh and delicious.
I should mention that they make heavy use of (good) imitation crabmeat salad. And if you eat on the premises, you will smell the grease on yourself the rest of the day. The deep fryer is essentially in the same room with you.
But I won't be enjoying their food anymore. I've had it with the hostesses actively discouraging me from ordering. My wife, when calling in an order, was told they're really busy and asked to call back later! The last three times I've gone in person, I've been met with a warning about how long it's going to take (a half-hour, an hour). The way it's expressed, it's clear she doesn't want me to order at all and is surprised when I do (did). It's outrageous.
I stopped eating sushi because of too many bad experience, but Leo (The head honcho) and his passion for the sushi he makes has restored my sushi love. I've never eaten sushi that has compared to the quality and freshness of the sushi here. It's a few bucks more than most other sushi joints, but it's worth every penny of it. A must try!
