Bazara soft opens – Sushi on Ossington.

BazaraSignWe now have a new Asian restaurant on Ossington. Bazara Asian Cusine takes over 188 Ossington, the former home of Goed Eten, and brings a variety of sushi rolls and a mix of Thai, Chinese and Japanese dishes. Chef-owner Sam Yang has experience with sushi restaurants in Vancouver, Toronto and Cambridge, and the sushi and other plates we tried last night piqued our appetites for more.

The liquor license is still pending, and the sushi bar/drinks bar is still being built. They expect to be serving with a bar in a couple weeks but the front dining room looks great, and the food is definitely worth it. They have transformed the old location into a comfortable full-serve restaurant. All the fish tasted very fresh and the rice served with the rolls was very high quality. They are still working out the logistics and they need more than one song on their iTunes library (the easy-listening version of The Greatest Love of All played about 15 times while we were there).

We’re looking to go back once they have their license, hoping they have a wide selection of Sake, which would suit the location and menu well. Stop by and say hi to our new neighbours.

The deep-fried mango ice cream was stellar:
