The Mikado is one of Montreal's best Japanese restaurants, as much for the sushi bar as for the cooked meals. One could certainly eat an entire meal of these delicate little rolls garnished with saffron rice, with red tuna, salmon and avocado. One could easily add the shrimp in bread crumbs with tempura, exotic fruits, avocado and cucumber, all enveloped in dried seaweed. If you haven't yet experienced the fine Japanese art of sushi, there's no better place than right here. A private room for eating cross-legged—such a good idea! Separate smokers' room. Silky smooth service. The sushi, the makis, and the other subtle seafood delicacies are made immediately before they're served.

Sample menu: Maki tempura, vegetarian kamikaze, Risoto roll, pork and cabbage dumpling, ried eggplant with ginger and soy sauce, beef tataki in ponzu sauce, soft-shelled crabs in ginger and daikon ponzu sauce, fresh algae bonsai salad, vegetable tempura, grilled freshwater eel, chef's potpourri, sautéed scallops and asparagus on Japanese noodles, sherbet and ice cream, chocolate mousse cake.
