There is no "good" sushi in Durham. For it to be good it must be run by Japanese (or somebody who apprenticed under a Japanese master) and not be a "stupid California rolls ordered by number" place.PiusPatronus wrote: ↑ All the other sushi places in the Durham region either: lacks quality, price is too high for what they offer, or generally a bad establishment due to cleanliness and hygiene issues. My wife and I have tried multiple AYCE places in Whitby and all of them were not up to par with their Google Reviews. Either the place was dirty (random crap on the floor which are not swept, or overwhelming smell of dirty dishrag) or the food tasted off (fish was slimy as f- and had a bad "rotten" smell).
The closest we have to good is Kobo in Pickering as it's actually run by a Japanese family. Go in there, avoid the McRolls, and order the omakase. That is real sushi.
Then step up in class over to Zen in Markham (formerly in Scarborough) to really get the proper experience.
Friendly reminder #2: Price matching is NOT the law. Never was, never will be. Nobody can stop you from shopping elsewhere.
