Good & fresh typical adequate Sushi from non Japanese owner/operators. A good place for lunch with many specials & deals. Just not somewhere I would go for dinner. But having said that, food was fresh, service was good and I enjoyed my Bento box.

Pearl Sushi is under new ownership and things have changed - for the worse!! The entrees we are use to ordering has severely changed in both presentation and in flavour! Not as good as Chef William at all!! Service was soooooo slow and there was only 1 table of 8 and us - a table of 2. It was like... More

We never miss a lunch at Pearl Sushi during Stratford visits. Especially good is their collection of sushi rolls and individual sushi offerings. In the realm of sushi, this is as good as it gets..

I arrived for a solo dinner and ordered the veggie dumpling soup, and a sushi combo that came with a California roll. The sushi was good and the service was excellent. When the server checked on my meal, I shared that the dumplings were the worst ever as they were mushy and falling apart. She did the right thing and... More

It may not look so great on the outside but once inside, the set-up is very minimalistic but still very beautiful. The service was great, all very friendly and fast. Food came out really fast- ordered the Jacobs & casey I believe. It came with a variety of rolls, sushi and sashimi. Everything was very fresh and well presented. It... More

Usually sushi restaurants are cold and meticulously beautiful, and while this one was beautiful it was actually very small, cozy and felt authentically Korean/Japanese. You can see the kitchen, one sushi chef cooking for everyone. Servers were very nice, and easy to talk to. Menu has a lot of options, most rolls are deep fried which was unfortunate for me... More

Politely welcomed and remembered even when there has been long periods in between visits. Attentive and patient service. Truly the best sushi/sashimi to be found. I cannot get enough of the miso soup. Always fresh and beautifully displayed, better than opening gifts on Christmas morn. Looking forward to returning in 2016. sen wa arigato
