Eat: Saku Sushi

When it comes to sushi, I’ve been spoiled by really good sushi lately that mid-range sushi restaurant has been somewhat dismissed. If you’re picky, it’ll be hard to find good, but inexpensive sushi.

Especially if you’ve been to Japan…

In comes Saku Sushi, located in the relatively busy stretch of Queen West. They described themselves as a Japanese fusion restaurant, but while looking through the menu, there is a bibimbap dish, a ceviche starter and carpaccio starter.

My cousin got the bibimbap (sorry, no picture of it), and said she had better bibimbap elsewhere.


The perfect combo for one (comes with salad and miso soup), choice A – chef’s selection of 10 piece sushi and house maki ($23).

Saku Sushi isn’t bad for mid-price sushi. Stick with sushi/sashimi here and  you can do no wrong.
