  • We tried this restaurant about 2 months ago. I was dying to experience the moving conveyor belt, and my husband and I decided to give this place a try to celebrate our anniversary. It turned out to be floating boats on water, and not a converyor belt.

    We got there when it opened so it was quiet. It was only the 2 of us for the first 30 minutes, we didn't have lots of selections at first, I'd like to come back at a busier time for this reason. But the chefs caught on our preferences (they were observing which dishes we were taking) and made more of them to place on the boats. All the staffs were courteous and attentive to our needs. The atmosphere at the sushi bar is nice, comfortable with warm lighting.

    They charge you by the colour of the plates, there's 4 - 5 different colours. I gave up after 10 minutes trying to remember what colour was how much as each plate passed by. It didn't take too long for our plates to stack high. We lost track of how many plates. The charge system reminds me of dim-sum except that you don't have a tick sheet in front of you.

    The tuna sashimi is very fresh and of excellant grade. My husband is a tuna fanatic and we haven't had such good quality tuna in a long time. We took 4 or 5 plates of it.

    We grabbed many other small sushi, sashimi, various seafood, rolls and more, can't remember all now.....from the menu we ordered fresh oysters, japanese fried chicken bites, veggies udon, and they were overall very delicious. It definietely is one of the more authentic Japanese restaurants in Toronto.

    I couldn't come back too often though, because we ended up spending quite a bit.

    The only dissapointment was my veggie u-don, which i like mine in a clear broth, but the veggies were pan fried in butter,so the broth was rich, which i didn't enjoy as much.

    Oh, the dishes on the boat are covered with transarent lids, no need to worry about people talking over them and dusts.

    If you like Japanese food and wanna try a different dining experience, I recommend it.

  • Order: varieties of sushi & sashimi, fresh oysters, torikaraage(japanese style fried chicken), veggie udon

  • I went to Fune for my birthday this year. The food was good, a bit over priced though. I could probably find better sushi for much cheaper. The place was empty so we got our orders in no time at all. I love the atmosphere and next time I go I'm gonna sit at the main table with the sushi boats.

  • Order: California rolls, shrimp tempura rolls

  • My wife and I took our family to this restaurant before heading to the theatre. Three boys under 11. The maitre 'd welcomed us warmly and seated us at a lovely booth in the corner. All the staff we walked past greeted us and welcomed us. Our waitress managed through the language barrier and served us extremely well. My children loved the atmosphere and especially the food. We arrived just after it opened for the evening so there weren't many other tables but our service was very good and the food was fresh, tasty and great quality. There is also a sushi bar with a flowting sushi train which I would like to try next.

  • Order: Edamame, chicken yakitori, gyoza, tempura, california roll, dynamite roll, spider roll, chirashi sushi

  • I went for lunch with a few others and the place was packed so it was a good thing we made reservations. The food came pretty quickly but my main dish came before every one else's and I had to wait a good 5-10 minutes before everyone else's dishes came. My roll was decent but definitely not the best I've had... it was nicely decorated but the taste was just adequate.

  • Order: Black Dragon Roll

  • Just great. If youre trying to go there during business hours you probably want to get a reservation. Otherwise myself and my date both loved it. We had sashimi, maki rolls as well as "special" rolls and all of them were great, especially the dynamite roll with four tempura shrimp in it. Its worth the price!

  • I love this restaurant. It's the perfect business lunch venue. The sushi is exceptionally fresh 99% of the time (an extremely high strike rate for a japanese restaurant).

  • Order: Dragon Roll, Sushi lunch, mics rolls

  • I have been to restaurants all over Ontario, and Fune is the single greatest restaurant I have ever been to. While I have been to other decent Japanese restaurants - Sushia Gardens in Niagara Falls, Amakara in St Catharines - as well as some of the highest regarded Japanese restaurants in the United States, Fune blows all of them out of the water.

    The Mountain roll is simply the single best piece of sushi I have ever had, and the butterfish sashimi melted in my mouth. The food is simply the finest I have ever had.

    The service was extremely friendly as well. Even with a young child, the waitress always had a smile on and got every bit of our confusing order correct. The atmosphere is perfect, and the restaurant is beautiful after the recent renovation.

    Simply put, every lover of fine food, especially if you have a passion for Japanese cuisine (mainly sushi) like I do, must visit Fune.

  • Order: Dynamite Roll, Mountain Roll, Dragon Roll, Spicy Crab Salad, etc.

  • I just adore this place -- the sushi is of excellent quality and the service is fast and courteous. The best part is if you like you can sit up at the bar where artfully created dishes float by on small wooden sampan boats -- actually, this might not be a good thing since I absolutely love their sushi and I always find myself eating more than I really should! Great place for an exciting and lively night out with friends.

  • Order: Various sushi, sashimi, hand rolls, tempura, soft drinks

  • Food was really good, probably the best Japanese that I have ever had. However, this was on the higher end of my price range for a regular dinner outing; you can easily find slightly lower quality Japanese food in the city for a much cheaper price.

  • Order: Imperial Dinner

  • We sometimes go here for lunch during the weekdays.

    Usually order the sushi special - and have never been disappointed. The fish is always fresh with good-sized portions.

    The service is usually good - as long as you get one of the girls. I've had a few sketchy experiences when you get the manager. He's got too many things on the go.

    The atmosphere is great. You can get a bit of privacy and the seats are comfortable. Nice ambient lighting, not too loud because of the separate rooms.

  • Order: Sushi Lunch Special
