TORA connects people and food through state-of-the-art technology. TORA’s restaurant concept uses a sushi concierge system- an intuitive ordering platform and a series of laneways that deliver your food directly from the chef’s hands to your table. TORA’S aim is to create an atmosphere which is exciting and new, while at the same time welcoming and fun.
TORA’s chefs have created a menu which highlights the quality you’ve come to expect from Aburi Restaurants; serving traditional Japanese dishes with our signature Aburi flair, as well as new and inventive creations. Dishes are meant to be shared, and the variety of offerings allows you to experience a multitude of flavours in one visit.
TORA’s signature EdoPrime Nigiri is strongly based in Japanese tradition, offering Edomae-style sushi with premium cuts of Japanese seafood, each brushed with our signature sauces. TORA’s Aburi Oshi sushi is pressed, paired with delectable sauces and garnishes, then flame seared to bring out the natural umami flavour. TORA also offers a wide range of hot and cold dishes, desserts, and a Japanese inspired beverage list.
Aburi Restaurants Canada is excited to introduce the country’s first TORA to Toronto.
