Nice ambience, good service, good food, clean, really enjoyable everything....just thought everything was a little bit too pricey. A couple dollars less for most items would be ideal as the portions weren't that big. Would I come back...probably. Not definitely.

I've lived in the Sullivan neighbourhood for seven years and had never been to this sushi place before. I was missing out. Firstly the restaurant was well lit, beautifully decorated, professionally staffed, and spacious. We were kindly greeted and seated quickly. Because we had never been here before we order quite a bit, mostly our "regulars" to compare against other... More

We ordered BBQ Rib Dinner Box (meat was too chewy, won't order this again) Spicy Tuna Roll, Spicy Salmon Roll (good size) , Quinoa Roll. Atmosphere was ok.

I would eat hear nightly but the prices are way too high. At least double most sushi restaurants. Its unfortunate because the service is great.

I ordered a bunch of sushi rolls, entrees and appetizers for take out. We enjoyed them over a business meeting and were very pleased we had found a decent sushi place close to work! The sushi was fresh and the service prompt and friendly when I arrived for pick up.

My husband I tried out Tawara one evening and we both swear that no other sushi will ever compare! I ordered mine made with Quinoa instead of white rice and it was amazing (and healthier too!). So far everything we have tried from the menu (which is a lot) has been delicious. They also deliver!

I am a chef of 29 years and have a deep appreciation for any food that is prepared masterfully. Food that uses the best,freshest ingredients, skilled flavour paring within a dish, attention to detail and artful presentation. Food that you can simply feel the love. That is what Tawara provides.

Go hungry, the food is yummy and the portions are large. And it is air conditioned, a plus on a hot summer night. We both ordered the chicken bento box. We expected a couple of pieces of California roll in the box, and we're surprised to receive a whole order each, before the meal was served. Good value.

We came in late night for their happy hour specials but we felt extremely rushed when they told us, once our food arrived that we had 15 mins to eat and pay. Although the food was decent (Gyoza raw and cold, sushi rolls tasty, sashimi fresh) we will return for the relatively cheap prices and location.
