Besides Kaji, who else is good for sushi/sashimi in that area?

Where can I go for a good sushi/sashimi lunch within 15-minute drive from Kaji?
Thanks for your suggestions.

        I love Kaji.
        But Kaji is not opened for lunch.

      2. How about Kumo Sushi on Kipling?! Just 'down the road'!

          I went to Kumo. Very disappointing.

          In the sake, they put cucumber sticks which deviated the delicate taste of the sake.

          The cooked dishes were heavily sauced which reminded me of Northern Chinese dishes.
          The sashimi and sushi were not up to par.
          The place was filthy too.

          Nothing comparable to good ones like Café Michi, Aoyama and of course, Kaji.

            Apart from the supposedly 'sashimi' dishes, the rest looked very 'confusing'!!!
            Filthy 'sushi' place?!!! A huge No-No!! If I saw that entering the establishment, I will leave!!
            Still feeling OK??!! Good Luck!!

              That was in April. Seven months ago.

              'confusing' is an excellent description.

              I have had better food at AYCE.

              It is sake from ozeki, they probably did you a favor by hucking those cucumber sticks in there ;)

          2. Tokyo Sushi. Just opened late last year. A really nice family runs the place. Have never eaten in the restaurant but get take out at least once a month. The quality is always consistent and no matter how much or little we order, they always give a little bit for free (extra pieces of salmon, a couple of orders of tuna sushi, etc.) They are located just across from the No Frills on the south side of The Queensway @ Royal York.

              Thanks. Will keep Kumo Sushi and Tokyo Sushi in mind for next time.
              I went to Yuzu-no-hana instead.
              Will post the review soon.

              1. re: ace123

                What's Yuzu no hana like? Kumo is hit or miss.

                1. re: Food Tourist

                  Kumo is mostly miss. Poor quality fish, cut horribly thick, and overpriced.

              2. Pearl Sushi - Lakeshore and Superior is good as well. But not a sit down just take out.

                  Oh, has it improved dramatically since opening?

                2. LAN Sushi in the Junction is really good (take out only) or Gojimi is pretty solid at Bloor and Islington
