  • I was tricked to come to Gonoe sushi. The reviews here in restaurantica are fake. This food was not what I had expected. The sushi and sashimi was only a bit better than what japanese buffet restaurants serve. If I compare one of the top japanese restaurants in Toronto like Fune than the food here would be like garbage. Me and my family are not coming here again.

  • Order: Large sushi and sashimi combination, scalop skewer, and tempura.

  • I've been coming here for at least 7 years now. I HATED sushi....until I found Gonoe!

    We now go quite frequently, that we know everyone on a first name basis. (At one point, we would go 3 times a week!) The food is spectacular! I have been to many sushi places around the city, and nothing compares. Often, I feel disappointed and say "I should have just gone to Gonoe!"

    The Las Vegas is my favourite, followed by the Special Roll, Volcano Roll, Kalbi Roll, Spicy Tuna Tempura Roll, etc. As for appetizers, the Shitake Tempura is tops!

    Like all businesses, sometimes they do get busy, and othertimes they can be training new staff. However, the place is a nice, small restaurant, with food that cannot be beat! Therefore, I can easily overlook the minor issues that only happen sporadically.

    Generally speaking, only dinner comes with complimentary ice cream. However, sometimes we get complimentary edamame and even ice cream at lunch times. I don't see this as inconsistent, but just as special treats, which they give when they are able to do so. Although we get these often, I am not dissatisfied when we do not, since it is their choice to provide these treats (and we shouldn't be expecting them at all times).

    However, whenever they do not provide these, and we still want them, they are very friendly and quickly provide us with whatever we order.

  • Order: Las Vegas, Kalbi, Volcano, Special Roll, Shitake Tempura, Salmon Teriyaki Combination Dinner.

  • The crunchy-spicy tuna roll is fantastic. My wife ordered the sushi-dinner, which was also great. I always have the tempura iro iro. Friendly wait staff. It is one of my neighbourhood favourites.

  • Order: Crunchy Spicy Tuna Roll. Tempura iro iro. Sushi Dinner.

  • I have been going there for a few years now and I LOVE this restaurant. In fact, my family goes so often we say hello to the staff as if they're family friends. The owners are fantastic, the staff is very friendly. There has been a change of owners, however, it has not changed one bit. The food is great and comes to the table without the blink of an eye. The maki and sushi is presented in a simple yet tasteful manner. I recommend this restaurant to everyone! You'll always want to go back...

  • Order: sushi and maki, miso soup, chicken teriyaki, bento box, chapchae

  • We have been dining at Gonoe since it was first openned. Although the owner changed this past summer (and we were very upset about that) the quality and the service has remained the same. The same restaurant staff stayed on with the new owner, and that helped keep the consistancies in place. If you want fabulous sushi, with no disappointments, this is the place to go. I have tried many many different Sushi restaurants in Toronto (and other cities), none compare for value and taste.

  • Order: Tempura lunch, Las Vegas Roll, 3 Handroll set, Sashimi lunch

  • I like gonoe sushi. Excellent sushi and service. I loved everything. Gonoe sushi tastes way better than any other sushi resturants. Made me confortable. My friend also liked the food. Some of the delicious sushi were Legend Dragon Roll. I love this roll. I recommend you to try Gonoe Sushi.

  • Order: Sushi and tempera.

  • I always order the Spicy Tuna Rolls. They are excellent. The tempura iro iro is also very good. The sushi is always fresh. My wife and I eat here about once a month, and the food and service has always been good.

  • We've been coming here for years. The service use to be excellent, slowly it's deteriorating. The sushi chefs are very friendly, everyone is generally nice but occasionally they take a long time. More and more, they're inconsisent. For example, the usual routine is: wet napkins, complementary edamame, dinner, complementary ice cream. You would think that these perks depend on how much you order. Some days we have a big dinner and none of these are offered. It seems like it's up to the waiter/waitress. The current ones seem too lazy to do all this.

    We've tried almost everything on the menu. Everything is very tasty. The restaurant is usually quaint & quiet.

    If you want sushi that is alot less expensive (and not as good quality) there is Tako Sushi right next door. In contrast to Gonoe, Tako caters to the masses.
