Rin Sushi

Rin Sushi is a Japanese restaurant that specializes in Edomae-style omakase dining. 

Inside, it's a calm and sophisticated zen-like Japanese vibe. There are twenty seats here, with only two set dining times, at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Rin Sushi torontoThe unique twist here is that Rin Sushi varies its ingredients a bit to serve interpretations of classic sushi you might not experience anywhere else.
