  • My honey and I have visited Izumi's many times now. We are always warmly greeted as soon as we walk in the door (by now we are called by our names!), and we always sit at the sushi bar. It's much more fun to sit and watch Jeung expertly carving the sashimi, and to watch the owner's wife (sorry -- forgotten her Korean name) making delicate little flowers, butterflies and assorted other garnishes with her skilled hands. I've even had lessons from her! The sashimi is absolutely fresh and delicious. I don't eat the flying fish roe, but my man loves it and he says it's wonderful! Like many of the other comments here, we are always given complimentary appetizers, and our meal is always followed by green tea, a brandy, and a nice slice of cantaloupe.

    If you like Japanese food at all, this is definitely worth trying!

  • Order: Sake Flying Fish Roe Miso Soup Wonton Soup Sashimi - "D" on the menu

  • Coming from vancouver, wherever I go I long for good, cheap sushi like what I can find at home. Up until visiting Izumi, I didn't have much luck in Barrie. But I'm so glad I was brought there! Now I know where to go, and I will...everytime I'm back in Barrie. The food was well made, fresh and filling...especially with all the complimentary dishes they brought to our table! At first I thought the prices were just ok, but with everything we got, it was definitely well worth it. And the service was very friendly. If you like Japanese food, eat here and you'll be happy.

  • Order: green tea, miso soup, rolls, teryaki, noodles

  • I first went there with my friend and his girlfriend and i never looked back. By far the best service in Barrie when you don't get a new waitress but the girls who normally work there. They are Koreans I'm pretty sure but they are all super friendly and always give you complimentary things like salted snow peas and miso soup (although I do agree its not the best on the menu)

    the sushi, sashimi and pretty much every roll are awesome. and its reasonably priced in comparison to some other japanese style restaurants. I always get the "C" or "D" special which has about 4 rolls (california, sweet potato, salmon and kappa) this special can pretty much cover myself for a filling meal and then left overs for work :)

  • Order: Rolls, Sushi, Sashimi,

  • I read some reviews on this place today and decided to try it out. Here are the results!

    The customer service was very good. There were only 2 other couples there so I'm not sure how the service would be when it's busy, but my experience was great nonetheless.

    I ordered the BEEF TERIYAKI and you'll be shocked to hear about what I received.

    First, I received a complimentary decent-sized piece of Smoked Mackerel followed by a complimentary order of what seemed to be a Chinese dish because I've never heard of it before. It was like lemon/honey chicken plate with pieces about the size of popcorn shrimp. (Hope everyone knows what that is!) I then received a bowl of Miso soup which to be honest, was disappointing when comparing it Japanese Miso Soup which I've been eating for the past couple of years in Japan. It's kind of funny because the soup was actually what I was paying for and it was probably the worst thing there! Then again, I'm comparing it to the best stuff so maybe it's not fair? Anyways, I then received my main course which consisted of white rice, beef teriyaki, more chicken with lemon/honey sauce, salad, and mixed vegetables. The salad and chicken were pretty good but the vegetables were ice cold, but pre-cooked...not so fond of that! The beef teriyaki was good but the size was about the same when compared to the other parts of the dish. I wish there was a little more beef but I can't have everything I guess. Along with the main course came 3 MORE COMPLIMENTARY DISHES! I'm not joking....a cold pre-cooked potato of some kind, KIMCHI (Korean spicy cabbage), and DAIKON which is a raddish that was cut like spaghetti. Green Tea was included and refills were unlimited. I received a piece of canteloupe for dessert. All in all, plenty of food for $9.99+tax!
