That lead pic is terrible. Nothing about it makes me want to eat that pile of goop.

manzen sushi is pretty awesome, went in the other day with my gf and tried their tex mex roll + baked scallop roll. Would definitely recommend this place! Provides a nice contrast with Sushi on Gerrard. Both are good but I find the quality higher with Manzen (esp the dragon rolls omfg). Gonna go back to try a few more rolls, the sashimi cucumber crisp sounded tasty

I agree with adrian.

Really good quality sushi and sashimi. Not that it matters but I've rarely been to a sushi place that actually has Japanese servers. The place was packed when I went in for dinner and they don't even have a sign up yet.
