We have visited this restaurant many times for both the Chinese and Japanese menu; the Chinese food has certainly been better than the Japanese, and overall the food has been fine (Westernised rather than authentic). However, on our last visit this week, we were left disappointed. The quality of the food has gone downhill.. the gyoza was overcooked and dry,... More

We ate after a day on the Rocky Mountineer, the train server recommended it. We both love sushi and after negotiating the menu was not dissapointed. Probaly the best soft shell crab I have eaten for a long time. So wish this was near home.

Best fresh and clean sushi...yet stuck in a chinese food restaurant. We got a booth and closed the doors and had the sake hot. Every single roll was off the charts good. The sashimi was to die for. The four of us were very pleased with our time and money spent. Very good food but where it was lacking was... More

While it looks and is a Chinese restaurant, the place has a sushi bar tucked into the corner. Excellent Japanese chef will prepare custom sushi. Every bite is fresh and flavourful.

If you are looking for a great experience and outstanding sushi, I would recommend the Oriental Gardens Sushi Bar. Try the spicy tuna dish. It isn't on the menu but Hartman will ensure you will be happy. We always have the chefs special with tempura prawns. Best we have found in BC.

It just goes to show how you can have an opinion which it totally unfounded. We are staying in the Hotel 540 , just across the street and we decided we would rather eat away from the hotel, but within walking distance. There was no menu on the door but we decided to give it a try anyway. From walking... More

Right across the road from the Hotel 540. We did not fancy steak or fries or pizza/pasta just wanted something light with flavour. We had the Chinese Combo for $16 and some fried rice. The dish was plenty for two (uk portions) and reasonable in price. Staff were really helpful restaurant was clean and not too busy. We felt well... More

My husband and i decided to eat at this restaurant because of our varied taste in asian food. The interior was clean and well organized, we were seated by the host as soon as we entered. We decided on an appetizer, gyoza. They arrived about 2 minutes after ordering them. These appetizers were dry and overcooked, and tasted as if... More

Have been here quite a few times, mainly in large groups (definitely reserve a tatami room if you have more than a few people!) It has always been great, although I have only ordered sushi, and fast service too.

Just average chinese food. Poor quality veggies! We expected better from the decor and outside look. Would not return!
