I have to tell you this restaurant is more like "fusion style" sushi restaurant. Since I am Japanese and wanted to try something different from authentic sushi. So I had "SC beef roll" "Golden Dynamite Roll" and "Tempura Roll" Tempura roll has got smoked salmon and crab meat with cream cheese in it. It was very tasty actually. Beef roll... More

Had fresh tuna and butterfish sushi with crunchy tuna rolls. Very fresh and extremely tasty. Dinner came with plenty of condiments and chop sticks. Delivery was quick and friendly.

Top-notch cooking. Fresh ingredients from Japan and all over Canada. Nice shopowner and staff. Better Japanese food than most of those in Vancover and Toronto.

Went here for lunch while on business in Yellowknife based on a recommendation from a colleague. The waitress - who seemed to be one of the owners could not have been more charming and helpful with the menu. The food was excellent and there was so much that neither of us could finish our meals. I would definitely recommend this... More

This is our go-to place in YK. The service is very good, the food is consistent, and the fried chicken is AMAZING! Love the ginger beef too, if not in the mood for sushi. The place is family friendly, and large. If going for lunch, try for 1130 or so to avoid a wait. The owner is always there and... More

This restaurant was phenomenal. We were in Yellowknife for nine days and we ate at Sushi Café 4 times. The menu is extensive and the service was excellent. The butterfish sashimi was snow white and melted in your mouth. The arctic char sashimi was local and tasted so fresh and clean as if caught that morning. The salmon sashimi was... More

The Japanese food was close to what we got in Asia / Japan. We went there twice and ordered tempura each time. My friends did not eat raw fish so we ordered yam tempura roll as recommended by the owner. The fried rice was good also. The teriyaki sauce was a bit sweet and the owner had cautioned us about...

They offer a good selection of Japanese food and also other dishes with rice and noodles. The server/owner is very fast talker with a an accent (I like it better because it shows authenticity of the food served and the ambiance) and very friendly. I will recommend this place for lunch and dinner. Serving is also fast.
