New menu tonight, ordered two different flavour Ramen soups, tuna tataki salad, ebi-chili-mayo shrimp and a tuna yam roll. All absolutely delicious in a relaxed, inviting atmosphere.

My boyfriend and I walked by this restaurant on our way downtown and went back because it looked inviting, with it's open-air front and clean wood decor. We thought it might be closed because there was no one inside, but were greeted warmly and sat at a cute table by the window. There was a regular menu plus an extra... More

This was my first time here, and the food was delicious! Presentation was great, very flavourful, and they served great local wines. We decided to be brave and we asked for the waiter to bring us the best on their menu, and it was awesome! The only thing they need to work on is faster service. We were sitting for... More

We were happy to have made a reservation, as it was hockey night in town as well. Staff ran the whole time we were there and still provided fine service and great food. One of our favourites for Japanese in town.

The service was friendly, but wasn't what we expected. The food, presented well but wasn't amazing as we have read, it was only OK. The waitress made a mistake on our order and said it couldn't be fixed and they still charged for it. Prices were OK, but we wouldn't go for a second time. For those hoping it's like... More

Dropped in for an impromptu lunch at this place as a first timer. Very friendly and welcoming right away. Excellent service . We each had a lunch box choice although there were some very interesting choices. Liked the sound of a Tempura and sushi roll combo. I found the Tempura batter was a little bit greasy but still tasty. One... More

This is a fun late night place for Japanese izakaya style food instead of the usual pizza or burgers. I had rainbow sushi, eel roll and saba sushi and they were all very fresh. The servers are also very friendly. This is one of the few Japanese owned restaurants in Kelowna so the taste is much different and better here... More

We have dined here a number of times. The food is fresh and fun. Best to go with a few couples so you can try a number of dishes. Service is slow but worth it. Language barrier is apparent when ordering. Two of our 8 dishes served were not ours....oh well.
