  • This restaurant has excellent sushi. The fish is so fresh and very high quality. The ratio of fish to rice is perfect. I've been eating there since it opened and their quality and great service have been consistent since day 1. Our "go to" meal for two is the medium Sushi Moriawase which is a 30 piece assortment of sushi and maki, a small salad and miso soup. I find the value for the money very good at $30 for two (+ tax and tip). I'm thankful they opened so close to home so I can get a good sushi fix whenever I need one!

  • Order: Sushi Moriawase

  • Good, fresh food with very friendly service.

    Waiteress didn't speak English very well but was very nice.

    Not the best sushi place in Toronto, but definately the best in Oakville.

  • Order: Roll, sushi, tempera

  • Exceptional, yet Pricy!!!!! But worth every penny. A small Japan in Canada. Authentic, delicious, THE SAME EVERY TIME! Any sushi lover should make a trip here. Mouth watering just thinking of their food.

  • I went to Niwa Japanese Restaurant so many time because I like to eat Sushi and Niwa Japanese Restaurant offers the best customer service for Sushi that is why a lot of people go to Niwa Japanese Restaurant to eat Sushi. So I like to go Niwa Japanese Restaurant because it is the best Sushi Restaurant in Oakville.

  • WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT! so i've read all these great reviews and i decided to go one day by myself at lunch to bench the quality and quantity of the food before i recommend it to my colleagues since we were trying to find a GOOD japanese retaurant close to our work. anyway, i left STARVING and had to buy a sub cause i was so hungry. don't get me wrong, the food was decent, the service was excellent, but when my food came, i thought it was an hors d'oeuvres, i ordered a sashimi and sushi combo and the thickness of the fish was no more than 5mm for BOTH and i'm not even exaggerating. $17 (including tax and tip) is not worth it at all.. i know it's supposed to be lunch portion but i have never seen it so small in any jap restaurant in any country!

    i'm hoping someone would tell me the dinner portinos are completely different cause i was really wishful of this place being the one!

  • Order: sashimi and sushi combo

My question is, why is someone as clearly racist as you, is eating at any other place but a burger joint?

  • I am not kidding. This is the first time I hear Japanese spoken among the staff at a Japanese restaurant.
    The others I have been to, spoke mainly Cantonese and Mandarin. That heightened my expectation.
    And they did not disappoint.
    The service was ernest, the food was great. The taste of the sushi was comparable to what you can get in Japan. No, even better than those served in big hotel restaurants in Japan.
    They should move out of the inconspicuous location. Their food deserves better.

  • Order: sushi lunch special, unagi
