Yes. I have been twice now, during the summer. I sat outdoors both times. I had good sake recommendations both times. I have absolutely no complaints about food or service. The menu is varied. There is definitely something for everyone. If I had to be critical in any way, it would be to mention that serving sizes really vary and price does not reflect that. The salads are quite large, the udon and soba soups are a nice size, but the grilled yellowtail collar was quite small and kind of lonely on the white plate. The black rice is a must try, instead of white.
I really hope this place manages to lure enough diners. I'd love to see it succeed. The upstairs location requires first-time diners to look up to even notice its existence, despite the sandwich board placed at the bottom of the stairs and escalator.
The owner and servers have a gentle friendliness that better Japanese restaurants seem to excel at. They are always close enough for you to catch their eye, but never intrusive. I wish more Toronto establishments aspired to this type of serving style.
