STORY OF AKA-ONI

Slide There was a red ghost living in the deep mountains. Slide He always wanted to be friends with humans, so he set up a sign at the door of his house. Slide Which said, "This is the home of a kind-hearted ghost. Anyone can come here. There are delicious sweets." And hot tea." Slide But still no one came. Slide Later, his good friend Qing Gui offered a plan for him. Slide Later, he went to Qinggui’s house, but found a letter at the door of his house, which read, "Mr. Chigui, you have to get along with humans and live happily. Slide If I look for you again, people will think you are bad. Slide Ghost. So I decided to travel, but I will never forget you. Slide Goodbye, please take care of your body, I will be your friend wherever I go. Slide The letter said: "Mr. Chigui, you have to get along with humans and live happily. If I look for you again, people will think you are bad. Ghost. So I decided to travel, but I will never forget you. Goodbye, please take care of your body, I will be your friend wherever I go." Chi Ghost read it silently two or three times, not feeling teary eyes.

Came for the first time, food was great. Little more authentic then Ajisen Ramen and just as tasty. Customer service... was great. Quick and efficient. Offered me free ice cream.. doesn’t get much better then that. A tad bit on the pricey side but quality over quantity made it worth it!read more

One of the best Japanese restaurants in Scarborough. Servers were friendly and accomodating to young children. Booth... was spacious and food was served promptly. We went at 8:30pm on a weekday and it wasn't noisy. Nice ambiance.read more

Absolutely smashing place, it’s got so many options we could barely keep up. Now keep in mind, this was a rather high... end and pricy place, but the food was well worth it. The portions could use some improvement, but they certainly don’t compromise the quality or taste. The golden caviar blow-torched bites are to die for, and they’ve got many delicious drinks! Options for everyone here.read more

Great customer service and food was delicious!My friends and I walked in without reservation on a Saturday night,... luckily there was an unattended reservation so we were seated after 10-15 minutes wait. The three of us ordered a bowl of ramen each and shared a roll and tempura. It was more than enough for the three of us.They had a special menu of chef’s recommendation and seasonal dishes. Their food looks very appealing in general and I look forward to trying other items on their menu!Took off one star because I waited 15+ minutes for my order (they later said it was served to another table) while my friends already finished their ramen.read more

Service was really good and fast! The food was okay, but a bit pricey for the servings you get. The ambiance was nice... and cozy but might be too small for a group. They have outdoor patio though.read more

Customer service was excellent, which enhanced the dining experience. The menu has a great variety of Japanese food but... the ramen selection could have more options. Regardless, the food were great 🙂 highly recommend a group of friends or family because you can order more. Also their special menu / chef's recommendations is very appealing...I just wanna try them all.read more

We went during stage 2 reopening and sat at the patio. Customer service was great. I had very high expectation for the... food but it turned out to just be okay. We ordered the daily special luxurious sashimi boat which was close to $100 before tax, everything was fresh but the quality was average. We also ordered grilled steak rice bowl (not pictured) and it was quite salty and kinda burnt. The best dish was the steam egg (also not pictured). Overall what we got was overpriced for the quality.read more

Tasty, and nice atmosphere. Prices are decent but a bit high for the quality, and the service is adequate. The washroom... was a little dirty.Note: The AC in the interior is very cold so bring a sweater or sit outside if you don’t like that.read more

Looks always fancy but some of the signature sushi and Don tastes oily by the combination of fatty fish & sauce.

Lots of variety on the menu to choose from. Portion is small though, menu is available online. We try some special... dishes and rolls. Service is very good and friendly. We sit at the outside patio at Scarborough location. It's very warm w heaters even it's a cold evening. It seems to be quite busy even on a weeknight. Must make reservations.read more
