  • Well worth suffering the DVP and finding parking just to visit this place. Fresh and cheap sushi, awesome miso soup, the dark atmosphere and disco balls make it that much fulfilling.

  • Order: Sashimi

  • I go to Simon Sushi again and again, mainly because it is close to work. But usually the meal I receive is quick, fresh, and consistently made with care. The fish seems to be of good quality, although I won't pretend to be a fish expert. The miso soup and salad are good as well.

    I would recommend this restaurant.

  • Order: sushi bronze

  • The food, without a doubt, is excellent and one of the best in downtown. I would often order their party tray (bronze size) to go and eat it in my nearby university residence. The female servers have been very nice and friendly. I like the fact that they offered free green soy beans and tea when I sat in there to wait for my party tray.

    I've been impressed with the service with Simon Sushi until something terrible happened. I placed an order on the party tray on the phone one day and I obviously arrived at the restaurant early. Simon became EXTREMELY impatient and said (in Chinese) "why is it that he comes early all the time? How can he expect me to finish making all the food so quickly?" when I was right beside him at the time (as if I couldn't understand Chinese). I was like "What the hell?". I never asked him to finish quickly, I never tried to rush him in any way, so why in the hell was he complaining? He was showing an attitude for no valid reason (not to mention that he was doing it right in front of a customer).

    As much as I appreciate my great experience with Simon Sushi in the past, I've decided not to go again because of Simon's disrespectful demeanour.

  • Order: Bronze Party Tray (to go) and sometimes bento (dine-in)

  • Comes with edamame which was great. The sashmi were cut much to thick. Thus it was hard to enjoy. I find the place decent but there are better locations, but if I am in this area and wanting sushi I would probably go back for more. I love their little oranges, since each time I eat it it is sweet.

  • Order: Sashmi Boat

  • It was like eating BRICKS! The name of that brick was Simons Sushi. It felt like I had to take this brick off my shoulders and throw it in the river.

  • For the price they offer, I cant complain. But for having Simons face all over the restaurant, I have to complain about that.

  • Order: Tempura Udon, Katsu Don, California Roll, Spadina Roll.

  • This restaurant was cool. I like the idea how Simons face was all over the restaurant. It was really funny. My friend and I were laughing the whole time we were there. He had a funny pose. The food was secondary to us. It was okay and it tasted good but Simon was funnier, with his asian "DOMA" expression.

  • Order: Sushi, Fried Chicken and california roll and teriyaki

  • I heard about this place on Spadina for valued Sushi. So my girlfriend and I decided to give it a try. To my surprise Simon himself greeted me at the door.
    The prices were fair, and the sizes of sushi were jusitified.
    Services was average as I would expect from value sushi.
    Overall, if you want decent sushi at reasonable prices, I would recommend it. If you are looking for a place to impress your date, this is not the place.

  • Order: Spadina ROll, Spiker Roll, and Sushi combo Silver.

  • The price of the lunch special was decent (similar to other sushi restaurants at lunch). The salad dressing wasn't made with a lot of ginger like most places, it was creamy; so if you don't like the common ginger dressing, you'll like their salad. The rolls were regular-sized and I have no complaints about them. However, if you were EXTREMELY hungry and hoping to get full, you might want to add an extra roll or appetizer to your bill.

  • Order: $5.99 Lunch Special S02 California Roll & Tempura Salmon Roll
