Ottawa has seen an explosion of All You Can Eat sushi spots, with low to mid quality food, much of it prepared en mass, and lots of it. This is not one of those spots.

Went with our 3 kids on a Sunday night to celebrate my daughter's 25th birthday. It is a small restaurant but vey well decorates. Very good food, tried the tempura and various types of Suchis. Have a few wine choices had decent prices. We will return and probably try take-out.

I grabbed some takeout for our anniversary dinner last night. The sushi was fresh and delicious. The service (phone order and pickup) was excellent and very friendly. I always recommend them to people. They have a great reputation with everyone I've spoken to.

The service was excellent. The sushi was delicious, served at the right temperature, with both white and brown rice. Edamame was delicious too. Great setting, small restaurant, comfortable, affordable. Best in Ottawa.

I love sushi 88, I used to live around the corner and eat it once a week. Now I live in Stittsville and we drive to pick it up. So good, some of the freshest fish there is!
