Japango may not look like much with its tiny venue and, ahem, limited decor, but when it comes to quality sushi, they know their stuff. Japango’s focus is on well made, high-end sushi first and foremost. Now, this might mean that the fare is a little more expensive than your typical Torontonian sushi bar, but it’s well worth the extra money.
I tried Japango at the urging of two friends who are ardent regulars of the bar, filling up at the venue twice a week or so. Knowing me, they ordered the simpler dishes for my unadventurous palate, and I was amazed at the high-end sushi in this surprisingly unassuming establishment.
The Special Japango Meal, with its choice between regular and deluxe, is the best thing in the restaurant, in my opinion. If you switch the California roll for their spicy tuna, it’s just incredible. I’m sticking to my safe options for now, I know, but I’ll try to be more adventurous in the future because so far, they’ve earned my trust.
Japango is busy seven days a week, so before you go, you may want to consider calling ahead for reservations. It’s also a good idea to limit your posse to three people or less, just because the venue is so very small.
If there’s any other criticism I have to offer, it’s that the two regulars who took me out haven’t yet been given the elusive special chop sticks reserved for only the sincerest of customers from the staff...Hint hint, wink wink, nudge nudge.
