Everything is great. Their pho is amazing. It was the best I have ever tried in Canada so far. Their sushi is very good too. Very fresh. There are so many things on menu. I will definitely try everything!

The store it's a little bit dated. There is that antique smell in the store. The food was ok. The staff is nice. There are plenty of parking outside the store.

Meat was tough, portions smallish for the price. Quality was OK, but there are better options in Sidney for Japanese Food. Atmosphere and service were nice.
