MSSM Masaki Saito



Before MSSM came into existence, our team introduced Toronto to the art of traditional stand-up omakase at Tachi. Tachi, a cherished sushi haven in Toronto, has seamlessly woven its restaurant legacy into the fabric of MSSM, the latest chapter in the sushi world crafted by Michelin Chef Masaki Saito. With a Michelin plate awarded during the Tachi era, culinary excellence has been a constant. The talented chefs who brought Tachi to life with their expertise continue to now craft extraordinary experiences at MSSM under the guidance of Masaki Saito. MSSM is dedicated to building upon the Michelin-acclaimed foundation and ushering in a new era of omakase. We look forward to having you join us at MSSM, where the history that began at Tachi now thrives under the guidance of Masaki Saito.



“When I came to Toronto five years ago, I really wanted to bring the traditional edomae sushi culture with me. Given the high price point at Sushi Masaki Saito and the limited amount of seating, many individuals don’t get the opportunity to experience a traditional edomae offering. Although it has been rewarding to share my passion and knowledge with select customers, this style of execution has not allowed me to broadly educate the general public; which is why I created MSSM. To open the price point to a more accessible audience and share the experience and knowledge associated with edomae style sushi.”

Another main reason behind the birth of MSSM is due to my love of teaching. I want to lead more students in Toronto on their culinary journey, hopefully leading the way for future Michelin star chefs like me.
