This place has gone downhill quick. Everything used to be delicious and fresh, now it is greasy and has poor quality fish (tastes very unappealing) if you want to have the best sushi in town West Sakura across the bridge is definitely where its at.

Fresh favors and great ideas, contemporary to unique dishes with the fare of Japan. Take out or dine in it's always a great meal.

Some of the best Sushi you will find in Kelowna, paired with friendly staff! It never disappoints! My favorite roll is the crispy crunch roll.

I have been here many times now and everytime I try something new and enjoy it! They may be a tad pricier than some of the other sushi places in town, but they elevate every one of their dishes in a unique and pleasing way. Their Sashimi beef and Salmon cheek is amazing. The only thing I can nitpick about... More

This place is UN real!!!! So delicious! It is so good that I only go here on special occasions so I don't get sick of it. It tastes like the Japanese you get in Kyoto or Tokyo.. Best in Kelowna trust me. PS don't eat at Poopadums restaurant it is terrible

Our first of what will be many visits started with miso soup - which was full of tofu, scallions, and seaweed - a perfect balance, not too salty and a healthy portion. At our table for lunch we had the Mabui special lunch and the Chicken Nanban. Sushi was planned, but we had a big homemade 'feast' just a few... More

Order the crispy crunch roll! Most sushi restaurants make their rolls really fat and the pieces are to large to fit in one bite without getting chipmunk cheeks. Mabui chefs make their rolls thin and long. You get the same amount of delicious filling in a manageable bite, and their rolls hold together after being dipped in soy sauce. I... More

We've eaten here probably 15-20 times, and it has to be some of the most consistently delicious food, on par with our favourite restaurants in NYC. It is the kind of place that you can pick anything on the menu and know it will be a new favourite dish. We don't order from the sushi menu that much, because the... More

I don't understand why this place has such great reviews. I found the food to be quite greasy and not great quality. There are better Japanese places in Kelowna. I was unfortunately disappointed.

I spent two years living in Japan, and after living in Vancouver, Kelowna and the US, I can honestly say this is one of the best Japanese restaurants I've been to outside of Japan. The food is sublime, the service is wonderful, and the staff even take the time to make scrambled eggs with ketchup for my picky 4 year... More
