restaurant review: katsu sushi

Restaurant: Katsu Sushi
Location: 572 Danforth Ave., Toronto, Ontario M4K 1R1
Telephone: 416-466-3388

Meal type: Lunch

Average price per person: $0-$10

What I ordered:
Toronto Roll (Eel, avocado, salmon skin, tobiko with sweet sauce) & green tea


I had high hopes for Katsu, because it is actually affiliated with 1 of our favorite sushi restaurants, Masa Sushi. Right away we could see that the service and atmosphere were definitely different from Masa. Katsu is definitely more "homey" and casual.

My fiance had 1 of the lunch specials and at first appearances we were impressed. It seemed like a lot of food for a very good price, but we soon came to the conclusion that Katsu can offer these prices because most of their rolls are based on items that don't have to be fresh (i.e. non-raw-fish items).

Overall, the food was very sloppy and I didn't enjoy the combinations of taste at all. And there was either too much going on, or not enough. We were actually a little turned off of sushi afterwards, which I never thought possible! So, we were pretty disappointed - it's definitely cheap, but I guess you get what you pay for.
