Review

Qimura couples delicious Japanese cuisine and sincere service with every order. Eating at this Japanese restaurant brings happiness to your taste buds and your soul.

Grandma Qimura, 85, opened a local Japanese restaurant after spending most of her life fascinated with feeding her family, friends and customers.

“All her life has been about cooking, for her customers, for her husband, for her children, for her grandchildren and even for her great-grandchildren,” Qimura’s family said. “From when she was a young lady until she could no longer hold the spatula, her food had touched countless people.”

Her grandchildren now recreate her fabulous recipes in order to share the mouthwatering flavors with locals like grandma Qimura always sought to do.

The fried egg roll is a classic for an appetizer, with carrots, shredded cabbage, green onion and egg all tucked inside a wonton wrapper.

The rolls have a crisp, buttery outside filled with vegetables that taste fresh even the following day.

Another unique appetizer on the menu is the cheese puffs, stuffed with fried cream cheese and crab, which leave a surprisingly sweet taste in your mouth.

Besides the large list of appetizers, the menu only grows with the list of maki sushi rolls. While some are more complicated, others only feature two ingredients.

The Carburetor Roll is packed with shrimp tempura and avocado with snow crab on top. The roll is a generous size with an equal amount of rice, seaweed and shrimp. 

For those who aren’t seafood lovers, the Tori Roll is packed with crispy chicken, cucumber and chilled cream cheese.

Qimura’s menu is endless and the service is extraordinary. If you’re looking for a local Japanese restaurant with welcoming faces and delicious cuisine, make the trip to Windsor, it’s worth it.
