How We Serve
We opened our restaurant as a way of keeping the Japanese tradition of authentic sushi making alive and to introduce real sushi to people in Canada. Our sushi bar does not serve rolls. Our chef benefits from over 25 years of training and experience to meticulously prepare Edomae sushi with respect for the quality products available.
At Sushi Bar Maumi, we import fish from Japan 5 days a week. Depending on what we receive, our chef decides if the fish are best served fresh or cured in order to bring out Umami, which means delicious taste in Japanese. Chef Maumi Ozaki incorporates passion and great attention to detail when preparing sushi, piece by piece. He thinks of the temperature of the rice, how to present the sushi and the order in which to serve them.
At Sushi Bar Maumi, we take pride in serving quality nigiri sushi using traditional and refined techniques. Our small restaurant welcomes 10 persons per service maximum in a relaxed atmosphere where sushi making is elevated to an art form. That is why we ask our customers to turn off their phones, talk quietly, avoid wearing strong perfume or cologne and be respectful of the environment and the people around them for a richer and more enjoyable experience.
