Haven't eaten here for a few years and won't return. While the tuna roll was tasty, the rest of our food was pretty ho-hum. Two of the dishes we ordered weren't available and we were charged a higher price for a substitution that was required as a result. Service was just plain awful. There appeared to be one server plus... More

Was not disappointed by any means on this trip into Sanbiki. The tuna main with ponzu was great. The salmon sashimi was just as good. Very nice texture. May have been slightly smoked. Very good. Had some of the standard fare sushi and felt it was good. The spicy ramen stood out slightly above the rest in this meal. Would... More

Unassuming spot tucked in a corner next to a night club. When you walk in you first see the grocery store of the place, with a lot of great stuff including prepared foods for take out. In the back room is the sit down restaurant area. Simple decor, but the food was incredible as was the service. During our stay... More

My wife and I had been here before, we'd visited this restaurant several times together and with our children and the sushi was especially good. We recommended it to all our friends. The last time I went, I stopped in by myself for lunch. First off, I was surprised by the clutter and little piles of stuff in what had... More

What a wonderful find and a great start to a new year! I have a family of Koreans who are very particular about their Japanese food and they are wanting to travel back to Kamloops from Edmonton just for the food! Everything tasted amazing! The udon was fantastic and the miso ramen was apparently the way it is supposed to... More

Great food and great service! They recently started doing ramen so had to try it out - mmmmmm....nice and hot yummy noodle goodness, steaming in a delish broth! One of our favourite restaurants in Kamloops for sure (we've lived here for 7yrs+). Bento boxes are great too (the better half usually orders the veg bento boxes and usually cleans up... More

We have eaten here a few times now and our experience has been a real hit and miss. Our first meal was very good, all fresh ingredient and nicely presented. The last couple of times the sushi has been off, especially the negitoro roll. It tastes stale as if it's been sitting out for a while. It simply could have... More
