FAIL.

You've been a member here for four (4) years with over one thousand (1,000) posts and you ask something like this without posting your location or even using the search?

If you're in Toronto, there's several threads on this, including a very HUGE and detailed listing.

You should specify where you live...this is a national forum.

Click on the Sushi tag I added at the top of this thread.

Please also consider listing your location.

Not all of it is AYCE. Also, if you look at the posting times, I mentioned the tag list right at the same instant you added the detail that you don't want AYCE.

If you are in such a hurry that you can't even read posts nicely tagged by other people for free or even take the time to learn how to use the search, then maybe you should hire a concierge service, as your time is obviously much more valuable than mine. :|

I have heard really good things about Hiro sushi on King St E. But I have never been so I can't comment personally.

Definitely check out the existing threads....they name a few places (I can't remember off the top of my head).

I like Yamato in Yorkville (run by actual Japanese people):

Yamato Japanese Restaurant

Still need to give more info. Do you want traditional japanese with simply very fresh fish and unique fish? Are you looking for omakase with small, creative dishes served one at a time(cooked and non cooked)? Are you interested in some crazy fusion, non-traditional makis?

I have some recommendations for you, but need to narrow down what you are looking for first!

yeah the one that has Teppanyaki at the back. I have tried the teppanyaki and I don't believe all teppanyaki chefs are japanese but I am 95% sure that the sushi chefs at the front and the waitresses are japanese.

Tho I haven't been in a while...maybe it changed? Or maybe they have a mixture of Chinese and Japanese?

It is small, so reservations are necessary.
No sushi bar, but easy communication with the chef and wife Caroline.
Modest to excessive meals, $25 to $85.

My friend and I went there last week, each got the $60 omakase. It was alright, fish was good quality, but I was not completely full. Nor did anyone come out from the kitchen to talk to us. They did fry the giant shrimp heads for us, which was then crisp enough for me to eat the shell. :twisted:

Edo is good.

I have never been disapointed by Ta Ke Sushi on Front either...or Hiro for that matter. Of course, many people will not appreciate the quality...just like many people will not appreciate the difference between the Keg and Ruth/Morton.
