High quality, fresh sushi. Great view. Best baked oysters ever!! I love coming here when I visit Tofino. The only negative is that it is really expensive (like most expensive sushi resturaunt I've ever been too).

I love the Sushi Bar! I like to go with friends and get an array of snacks for the table. My favourite rolls are the Smiling Buddha and the Tough City Honour Roll. The seaweed salad is a great side dish. The chicken karaage and gyoza are also amazing. Definitely go hungry and fill up on some tasty treats! They... More

A potent combination of mouth-watering sushi creations + one of the best views on the Pacific Coast. And if you're lucky you'll meet Crazy Ron!

The sushi was excellent, fresh and delicious. We were able to get a great spot on the patio and the view was superb. It was a little chilly however they supplied warm blankets and the manager had a fun sense of humor. We would have given a five out of five but our waitress was a bit grumpy, and seemed... More

We lucked out and found a table on the patio looking over the ocean. We watched the float planes come in and out. We had drinks (they have a good, BC wine list) and a feast of sushi. All the sushi was fresh and delicious. The patio did get a little cold later in the evening but they supply blankets... More

Service is a bit perfunctory, but genuine and relatively efficient. Eclectic interior gives you plenty to look at. Fresh fish, great sushi and the tempura batter was nice & light.

The sushi is fresh and well made. We had sashimi, some maki rolls and the special Buddha roll with strawberries. The view is fantastic.
