Loved the sushi here. It was so fresh and they had tons of interesting flavor combos. I particularly liked having cucumber on the outside instead of rice. It was very crowded so I suggest making a reservation. Great drink list with cute names. We ended up doing a couple small plates and then some sushi rolls. Tried an interesting matcha... More

Can't really fault the place. Atmosphere is nice with tasteful loungy music. Staff is very friendly and the food quality is excellent. Some might consider it pricey though!

We brought the family there for our first night in Montreal. Lovely place. The food is delicious and price reasonable. They should try to coordinate and serve the food of everybody at the same time.

Sam was our waiter and from the time we walked hours before our dinner to make a reservation to the time we finished the meal his attention to detail and kindness made our experience a memorable one. We asked for his recommendations on a few items and with his key questions in response he nailed down the perfect sushi choices... More

Staying in Quartier International

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today the Quartier International is like a transversal piece of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most apparent at its focal point, the Palais des Congres, a convention centre and retail space with a multi-coloured glass exterior and an equally bold interior motif. Outdoors too, the Quartier is friendly towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted city squares, with extra-wide sidewalks meant to encourage long strolls and shaded benches available for absorbing the atmosphere. Fresh air and promenades characterise the area, from the foliage of Victoria Square to the fountain of Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, while the restaurants along Rue Saint-Antonie Ouest and Metro stops modeled in the Parisian style give off European glamour.
