Happy Monday! For this roundup, we’re delving into the best Japanese restaurants of the week. The city is home to many culinary establishments that specialize in this particular cuisine and I’m excited to tell you more about some of them. So if you’re looking to get familiarized with Japanese flavours, check out the full list below.
Here are the top six Japanese restaurants of the week:
Enjoy the flavours of flame-seared sushi at Miku. Located at the city’s Harbourfront, there are different menus for lunch and dinner and a menu for Miku Kaiseki Experience. Sushi plates, nigiri, speciality rolls, oysters and more are available. Reservations can be made online.

Indulge in sushi, rice bowls, grilled kushiyaki, sando snacks, hot & cold plates and more at Ki. You can also find izakaya bar snacks like ginger karaage chicken, calamari, beef mini tacos, rice cakes, and pork gyozas. A selection of beer, wine, and cocktails are available too.

The Japanese pub focuses on tapas-style dishes with a selection of varied beverages. In addition to sushi, there’s noodles, sharable items (hot and cold), teppan curry, bento, and soups. Meal sets for one and two are also featured in the menu. You can make a reservation through the site.
If you wanted to try teppanyaki-style dishes, then Yamato can be on your list. The extensive menu features everything from teppanyaki entrees (beef, salmon, shrimp, fillet mignon) and deluxe teppanyaki combinations to noodles, sushi, sashimi and others.
In the mood for a filling rice bowl? Head to Onnki Donburi. There are different options to choose from, like Buta Fire (Onnki original pork), Sake Lover (salmon sashimi on marinaded rice), Karaage Don (crispy fried chicken karaage), Salmon Steak Don, and Unagi Don.
There’s nothing like a warm bowl of ramen to make things better. Ramen Isshin serves the noodle soup with different bases. You can opt for the miso, vegetarian, shio “salt” or shoyu. In addition to ramen, the restaurant also serves two rice bowls, appetizers and desserts.
