I wrote about this in my February 2009 blog, but this page has more details and pictures.
The location is not what you'd expect, opposite a Baskin Robbins and a Tim Horton's (Canada's ubiquitous coffee house), and in the same block as a nail parlour.
Step inside, however, and you are transported back to Japan. The chef and staff are all Japanese, and the food and service are good and very authentic.
Sushi Kaji Chef Sushi Kaji offers three fixed price menus, and no a-la carte, however they were happy to cater for my no-meat request, and remembered the other instructions I'd given when booking. Each menu includes Sushi and Sashimi, desert plus a couple of other dishes. I went for the mid-sized Waka menu with about 6 courses. Service started with hot towels, something which every decent food place should offer, but often don't.
Crab Appetiser (I think!)
Pretty Okra and Shrimp
Sashimi - Octopus and Sea Bream
Snow Crab and Taro Potato in Ginger Sauce
Bamboo Shoots in Three Colours of Miso
Butternut Squash Cake and Chicken
Fried Fish Pyramid
Lotus and Yuzo Jelly (with Shrimp Underneath?)
Pyramid with beef and other things...
Sauteed Daikon Radish and Sea Eel
Sea Urchin Sushi
Sushi with Sauce (Crab?)
Green Tea Tiramisu
Grape Mouse Throughout the meal, we drank very fine green tea, though this was the one point where the service could have been better, there were no automatic refills, we had to ask each time. (Though I'm not complaining - it's just that there weren't hovering, watching, waiters) A great place to eat, and I'm already looking forward to my next visit. One note, the table next to us had a woman who didn't eat raw fish or several other things on the menu, though her companions assured her that "Sushi is rice and vegetables", was slightly hysterical and rude to the staff - saying in front of one waitress "she doesn't speak English". I thought they dealt with it flawlessly, and managed to provide her with a personalized menu.
