ISO: Sushi restaurants in downtown Toronto that use brown rice

I know, I know - brown rice isn't exactly what most sushi eaters would probably go for, but I'm just wondering is anyone knows of any sushi restaurants in the city that use, or at least offer the option, of brown rice with their sushi.

Any help would be appreciated as always! :)

      Thanks for the rec.!

      I actually found another place at Carlton & College called Sushi Shop. Unlike most places I've seen that offer brown rice, they use it without extra charge! Brilliant!!

      Their sushi is quite different from 'traditional' sushi too, which is a nice change for me. Experimentation is always a delight :)

    2. At the moment the name eludes me however, on the north west side of Queen at John there is a place which offers brown rice for a $1 extra. They also have Korean dishes. It isn't the best sushi in the world but it isn't bad either. I've eaten there many times in my 10+ years in Toronto.

        HoSu Bistro.

        The food isn't very good but I have eaten brown rice vegetarian sushi there from time to time when I am trying to find a somewhat healthy fast food lunch.

      2. Sushi Island on College does brown rice.
