This was my second visit to Shodan but it will be my last. The service was extremely slow. The waiters had to be badgered in order to get our food. Nothing changed from course to course. Each time the waiter had to be asked more...More

There was lot of innovative and unique items on the menu but we didn't think they were that impressive taste wise. The first roll we had actually had a burrito type of feel. When ever we try a new sushi place we always try to...More

Good restaurant with nice service and extensive menu, food is prepared at the bar so you can watch if you want. In the end it is a bit pricey though.

If you like "designer" sushi à la Nobu, try Sho Dan's world famous specialities such as Besame Mucho, Kiss, Fuji etc. Regular sushi is as good as it gets in North America for someone like me who has regularly been to Japan since 1979 and...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
