Just had dinner at Mabui Sushi Izakaya and the whole experience was perfect. We were going to go to the one at the Sandman Hotel and I looked at the poor reviews and called to see what the buffet cost was and was not impressed with the person on the phone so we went to Mabui, so so happy we...

I have eaten at Mabui several times and each time the food is fresh, consistent and outstanding. The service is always top-notch. Love the calamari here, all the sushi rolls including the california, dynamite and yam. The Puri Puri Ebi Mayo is fantastic.

I had a late flight back to Vancouver so I decided to stop by Mabui Sushi for dinner before I went home. When I entered the restaurant, I was welcomed by the family and seated at the bar. I wanted to try all the authentic Japanese dishes instead of sushi because I noticed all the staff were actually Japanese! I... More

I have always felt Mabui to be one of the premier Japanese restaurants in town. The fact that it may be the only one owned and managed by ethnic Japanese is certainly one of the factors. But it goes well beyond that. A proper Japanese greeting upon entering, classy and modern decor, clean premises that are feng shui inspired, and... More

Best Asian food in Kelowna, hands down! I have never been disappointed. The food is always fresh, delicately prepared, with unique inventive and extremely tasty Asian fusion dishes.

Great food, excellent service, authentic atmosphere of a busy Japanese diner. Simple well done dishes to please the purist as well as a lover of wacky creations and crazy rolls. Will revisit many times until I have tried everything.

We showed up stressed on a tight time-line with a two year old. very impressed. possibly the best spicey tuna rolls we've had. We're picky about food and service and they delivered on all levels. Giving them 5/5 for Food, Service and Value. It wouldn't be fair to rate our experience any lower.
