If you want good white food.... LA Grille in the No 2 and Blundell complex beside Starbucks... everything there rocks and it's really cheap. $7.95 steaks on Mondays!!! This place is always packed.

What's the difference between Ninkazy and Tomozaku? Different menu items and better "chefs"?

Tokyo Joe's is terrible. The imitation crab in the rolls are soggy and the sashimi is overpriced. I went since the reviews on a friend's recommendation and the reviews were okay on dinehere.ca, but was quite disappointed. The lady acts all Japanese but I think I heard her speaking Mandarin in the back.

If you want good and authentic Japanese food, go to Ichiro or Maruwa.

I've actually never tried anything but the sashimi and spider roll at tokyo joe's..spider roll, mm.......

Maruwa is the place in Ironwood right? i live near there but have never tried it cuz everytime i go it seems to be closed. Do they have other dishes besides the usual sushi fare?

Now that i know your family economic background... Its no wonder. To a commoner like me living off my own earnings ane a bit of my parents' middle class earnings; going to such lengths for a lunch simply doesn't make any sense. As well, i can't in through all the places everyday since in economic terms i am a "expenditure minimizer" whereas you are classified as a "utility maximizer"

Yup, Maruwa's between the Tim Horton's and Sleep Country. The only knock against them is the fact that their menu is limited. But the stuff they do have is good/fresh, so no complaints from me.

Here's a copy of their menu, from what appears to be 2006:

http://www.menuetc.com/v/menus/MaruwaSushi/ (crap, website seems to be down at the moment)

The menu hasn't changed much since then, but the prices have gone up slightly. They're closed on Sundays, and holidays, and don't open for lunch on Sat.

And make sure you make reservations if you go, even on weeknights (just in case). The seating capacity is only around 30-35 in there.
