It was suggested that we make a reservation and where hungry early so we went for 530. It was quiet when we went in but soon filled up. The service was exceptional the entire meal. She was knowledgeable friendly and acutely interested in our dinning experience. All of the menus items were exceptional. High quality ingredients artfully created into mouth... More

This place makes great dishes. Great vibe and authentic. The sushi was colourful beautiful and delicious. The place was packed so book early on prime time. It's no secret. Everyone knows how good this place is.

This is one of our favourite Revelstoke restaurants when dining with a group. Very good food and service at a reasonable price. It's a very casual restaurant, in an old building - can be cold in mid winter. There are 3 private dining rooms for groups upstairs. The chef was happy to cater for the various dietary requirements of our... More

I have eaten here a number of times and it's never disappointing. The servers are friendly and attentive and the food is fast and amazing. Whether you are getting sushi rolls, teriyaki or donburi, you can tell they take pride in what they do. I would recommend for anyone!

Very good sushi even compared to Suchi places in Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto. Good to see that if you have passionate owners you can offer great food in small towns.

This is one of the best sushi restaurants I've ever been too! Fresh (so fresh you'd think we lived next to the ocean), delicious food with excellent presentation and service. It's a bit pricey but you get what you pay for - worth every penny.

I've eaten Japanese including sushi all over the world and I rate this as one of the best. Fresh, tasty and plentiful.

Even if you want to offer an uptown version of Japanese sushi, classic pop rock really isn't your best choice for background music. The menu, while fairly traditional, really didn't measure up to standard. I opted for Miso soup and an assortment of Tempura. The soup was good but again nothing special. The Tempura was the big disappointment. Think of... More

Really tasty and fresh, made while we waited. The miso soup was a lovely warming accompaniment to the sushi.

Had the California rolls miso soup, ebi ebi and a few more items. All were quite good but not overly great. I found the prices to be a little high compared with other sushi restaurants outside of Revelstoke. Service was good and the atmosphere was nice.
