EXPOSURES (FOOD PLACES) -- Kirei Sushi + Bar, Sushi Fun

It's been a while since I've done an "Exposures" blog entry. I think it's 'cuz I've been checking out a lot of the same places (still a Wow! Sushi fan). But there are still some new places. :)


Location: 7335 Yonge Street, Thornhill, Ontario (close to Yonge & Clark Ave.) Google Map
Contact #: 905-764-7788 (according to
Website: None

Price Range (for a main dish): Low?? -- ($15.00 for weekend Lunch Buffet; don't remember the other buffet prices)
Restaurant Size: Medium
Recommend? Standard Quality

Brief Impression
The decor looks pretty nice and it's pretty spacious inside. Unfortunately when we went, there was a hole in one of the windows, so it was a little cold (at least, we think the cold air was coming from that hole. We were too far to see if it was sealed up or anything). The server was polite, patient, and friendly.

It was our first time at Sushi Fun. We didn't fully realize that it was a buffet restaurant until we opened the menu and saw that each item had a number, but no price next to it. On each table were sheets of paper where we would write the item number and amount.

Overall, I'd say the food was pretty... meh. There were some hits and some misses. I wouldn't recommend the udon or ramen. A couple of my friends ordered them, and thought they were just "okay." I think if you find that they make a dish that you like well, then it'd be worth checking out.

What I Ate / Drank (from what I remember) ...
Dynamite Rolls -- It was okay.
California Rolls -- It was okay.
Sushi Pizza -- This tasted good. It was made pretty simple.
Shrimp Tempura -- This was okay.
Chicken Teriyaki -- This tasted good.
Enoki Beef Rolls -- This was really good.
Deep Fried Banana with Chocolate -- This was warm and I thought it was a little too sweet in the end.

Brief Impression
So my sister, her fiance, and I checked this place out for Winterlicious. We would have never stepped in here otherwise, because... the price tends to lean towards the high price range. Some of the special rolls range from $11 to $17. It's also $5 for two scoops of green tea ice cream. 5 dollars -- for green tea ice cream. What's up with that?!

The inside was spacious and clean. Our server was very polite and friendly. Just make sure the washroom stall has toilet paper if you go. Out of the four washroom stalls, two were out of toilet paper -- and the place wasn't busy when we went.

Despite the high price, I will most likely check it out at least one more time. The food was quite good. It's totally worth another experience -- just not on a regular basis.

What I Ate / Drank... 
Salmon Sashimi -- This was really good.
Tuna Sashimi --This was really good.
Butterfish Sashimi -- This was great. It was so soft and melty. Mmmm...
Salmon Maki -- This was pretty standard.
Salmon Sushi -- This was good.
Tuna Sushi -- This was good.
Tuna and Avocado Tartare -- I think there was a bit too much tuna in this, and I think the avocado should have been a little mushier, but that's just my preference.
Kirei Tiramisu -- This was really delicious.

The Tiramisu. It was really yummy and filling.
To me, I could probably do with sharing that dish.

Thanks for reading! If you have any comments or want to know more about anything, feel free! :)
