Vancouverite here, Le Cafe Michi is the only place that comes close to the quality of the west coast fish. Don't waste time or money anywhere else in toronto.

I went to this place since its so highly recommended- to all of you, you should try this place. I'm not into crazy sauces and gimmicky rolls, I like the traditional stuff. The variety was small but very fresh, high quality stuff going on here.Its comparable to Ushi Wakamara or Taka sushi in NYC.Can easily spend 50USD here which IMO is a great deal.

I was at Le Cafe Michi a few weeks ago for lunch and had the cafe au lait chirashi. I've had it a few times before (while Lin-san was working) and totally loved it. Back then it was an amazing deal as it came with a salad with sashimi and this amazing citrus dressing, then a massive bowl of chirashi with really fresh fish, and a layer of unagi between the rice. However this last time we went the price went up, the salad was just a plain seaweed salad (delicious though), and the chirashi bowl was noticeably smaller. Quality was definitely not as good as before but the chef claimed that he's new to the restarant...so maybe that's why. It was quite a disappointing experience so it's difficult to justify driving all the way to Scarborough just for that.

I went to Le Cafe Michi a few weeks ago and it was 45 dollars. Although the fish was quite fresh, I felt the items lacked a good deal of imagination or variety (Sushi, Sashimi, Maki, Ikura on rice, Salad and slice of cake) or the same 5 or 6 fishes (primarily maguro, sake, and hamachi).

I finally got around to checking them out last night. The price has been bumped up to $45 (post it note hastily covering the old price on the menu, hehe). It was very good, I would return, although I do think they played it a bit safe. Perhaps if I sat by the bar, I would've had more input. My friend had already sat down at a table when I arrived. Oh well, there's always next time. The omakase included dessert & coffee btw.

I did enjoy solo sushi-ya a bit more, but both are quality establisments.

I went a couple of weeks ago and it was $40/person for omakase. I guess the tuna was super fresh that day because it dominated most of the courses! Started off with thinly sliced barely seared tuna topped with a special sauce. Next was a small sashimi course with tuna and about two other kinds of fish. Then uni and ikura on rice which was excellent. I was really impressed by the quality of the sushi rice and the freshness of the uni. Then a nigiri course with tuna again, salmon, lobster, scallop and a few others I don't remember. Finally, an impressive spicy tuna roll which was incredibly filling. A small slice of cake finished off the meal nicely.

All in all, the quality of the food was very good although I've had a wider selection of fish with the chirashi the last time I was there. I split one of the a la carte items along with an omakase with my companion so that worked out well.
