Kaji Sushi

Kaji Sushi is one of the premiere sushi establishments in Canada, even though it is located in a unimpressive strip mall on The Queensway.  What makes it so special?  Well Mitsuhiro Kaji does.  He is the chef who owns the restaurant and supports my theory that the majority of sushi lovers in the GTA have never actually tried sushi.

                      KAJI SUSHI
Return Factor – Definitely Return
Location – 860 The Queensway, Etobicoke, Ontario M8Z 1N7
Atmosphere – Dressy & Interactive
Price – $80, $100 or $120 a person

Going there will change your perception of Japanese food, sushi and frankly your palate.  Ask alot of questions and socialize as Mitsuhiro Kaji is fun and enjoys the conversation.

Most of his ingredients are flown from Japan with his fish being received in his restaurant 24 hours from when the fish left the water.  Nothing is kept overnight.  How can he do this?  Well his menu has only 3 options serving an Omakase style dinner or a tasting menu.  You pick the amount of courses you want and you leave it up to the chef to see what you get.  Omakase is the only way to eat really.

House made egg tofu in a bonito broth

Grilled taro potato with 3 sauces.


The sashimi course served with the head of the shrimp still moving.

Everytime this course was brought to the table, ladies would cackle with delight and awe.

Beautiful, sweet translucent Botan shrimp

Fish ball in broth

Glazed Japanese eggplant with dashi sauce.  Tender and sweet.


Suzuki fish and crab grilled in a spring roll paper with ponzu.  Just beautiful.

Sushi courses.  Kaji’s rice was sweet, still warm creating a perfect contrast to the cool fish

Noodles in broth

Tools of the trade
In short, visit Kaji and visit often to have a true Japanese experience.
