The soggy spicy salmon / avocado rolls referenced in the previous review:


Jun 6
Have been a couple of times and the food has been great or not very good. One item that I would suggest steering clear of is any of the spicy salmon / tuna rolls. Panko and chopped sashimi is combined to make a very soggy roll with zero crunch. Sadly the ones at AYCE sushi are even better. Their salmon and avocado rolls are very good. Sashimi quality is mediocre and I can't say it's any better than AYCE. Overall, Sushi Umi a couple of KMs east is much better.

I donít know but it looks like they are moving further east, east of Churchill.

Does anyone know when (or if) they will be re-opening in their new location in Westboro? Their FB page still says mid-October.

One of the lunch specials. Comes with a soup. Very good, not great.

The SO and I have been to MHK twice in the last month - its rising to the top of our O-town sushi list! The fish is fresh, the rice is well done, the rolls and plates are well presented, the miso soup and tempura are delish.

The LED lighting at the Merivale location needs improvement (bad CRI guys!) but the decor is really very nice, and the service is friendly and quick. Recommended sushi stop in the west end for sure!

Oh - and they have AYCE every night, I think it was $23 on weekends and $21 on weeknights. Don't remember the prices for lunch. We just ordered a la carte though - it worked out to be a better price for us.

I passed by the other day and saw a banner that said AYCE sushi. Has anyone been? Their menu doesn't mention it. Seems to be around $20-$21. Would love to hear more!

Ate at the Merivale Road loacation recently and was plesantly surprised.

Sushi and sashimi were very good. The Sashimi was fresh, flavourful and the pieces were large. i'd definitely do back again for sushi and sashimi.

It appears that the Merivale location is back up and running. I noticed that it came alive over the weekend.

I'm glad to see that because I was beginning to have my doubts for a while-things were looking pretty quiet.

Ok this has become my regular sushi place. I can not find anywhere in Ottawa that stands up to value and quality of this place.(with exception of Gengi although Gengi is pricier) It also helps that it is in the westend. Love the Lobster Roll. My only thing is I wish they had Butter fish!

UPDATE: Went tonight to the merivale location and it was closed due to a kitchen fire. Will be reopening after kitchen reno is complete.

MHK is coming out with 3 new rolls...the "M" roll, the "H" roll and the "K" roll. I had the opportunity to try one of them yesterday, and it was really good.

I think the one I tried may have been the "H" roll. It may be one of my new favs. It had salmon skin, avocado, cucumber, peanuts and a spicy sauce. The salmon skin was crispy and delicious. There's nothing worse than soggy salmon skin, yuck. It was 12$ for the roll, which is really reasonable IMHO.

Our enthusiastic server was keen to get our opinion on the rolls. He confirmed that they should be on the menu in the next week or two. He also let us know that between 8 and 10 is sushi happy hour, where you can pay 4$ for 4 pieces of a roll, or 1$/piece for sushi.

I didn't take a picture, but the next time I'm there (which should be relatively soon), I'll snap one of the roll...since it's a definite re-order in my books.

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The sushi was great, the decor was very nice and trendy and the service was good. I really liked the soy sauce, I wish i could remember the name of it because it was the best I've ever tasted. The prices weren't too high either. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

As I said above, my boyfriend and I think that this place has the best sushi in Ottawa. I always get the vegetarian platter, and the staff is always nice about substituting out avacado (which I hate). The rice is always the perfect texture and flavour, and the seaweed wrappers are never soggy. I find the amount on the platter to be just right with soup and an appetizer.

This is so far my preferred sushi place in Ottawa. I was excited to see an old favorite "Hawaiian roll" on the menu (even if it only has a few nuts inside instead of being rolled in them! - it's not as flavorful as it could be, but it's a great price at $6.95). The Volcano roll is DEFINITELY HOT (spicy). Keep your beverage handy.

I see the majority seems to prefer Genji, but I did a take-out order from them and was really disappointed. Perhaps I'll try again?

It was nice and fresh.Pieces were a bit large and difficult to fit in mouth all in one bit as I believe is intended, but definitely means great portion sizes for your money. Usually not a Maki person but they do quite a good job here. On my next visit I will indulge in more.

The Volcano specialty roll was quite good and spicy, topped with baked octopus. Check out the neato avocado "leaves" on the side!

Nicely presented but not exceptional. The unagi maki was quite good but the bbq salmon skin maki was the driest I've had (and I always order salmon skin!).

These were decent. Light, crispy, not greasy, with a nice sweet chili sauce for dipping.

This is the first time I see a tempura made like this! Obviously not the Japanese batter.

Look at this measly thing! Makes you want to cheer it up or something. I had a cold and couldn't taste much but wifey confirmed that there wasn't much flavour here.

Thanks to Tiana (Tiana) for promoting these things.. they are yummy and very fun to eat! I think we'll be making a habit out of ordering edamame in the future.

Kimchi is usually good and this was no exception. The bonus is that it's complimentary! Highly recommended to satisfy you even if you've lost your sense of smell due to a cold! ;-)

This was not good at all. There were little grease pools floating on top, it was a white orange colour, and had no flavour of lime whatsoever. The shrimp in it were very nicely done.

But here's the best (worst) part! This "tom yum" soup had pieces of what appeared to be frozen mixed peas/carrot/corn in it! Any other time I've had tom yum, it has contained thinly sliced mushrooms or chopped scallions. The default north american microwavable vegetable mix was a bit of a surprise.

I've only had the miso, but I have to agree with From Da Rock that it's very good. I prefer it a bit stronger, but I could just have spoiled myself by making it at home.

Miso Soup was bar none the best I ever had. Just wish it was given as a palate cleanser when ordering a main meal as is at other Japanese/sushi places.
