Hoshi Sushi is a little restaurant with very narrow booths. Despite being squished, I quite enjoyed my meal. There seemed to be a lot of takeout orders lined up and the kitchen was hopping busy. The one waitress was running around tending to the phone, the restaurant customers' orders and the takeouts. She was fast and did her best. I have no complaints. I think I heard some Cantonese in the kitchen? perhaps the cook back there? I don't know about the sushi chef. Anyway, the food was good. The sushi was tasty and I was pleasantly surprised. We will be back another time when we're in the neighbourhood.
