Best Sushi Ever

Amazing! I was in Kelowna for a 4 days on business and ate here almost every night. The presentation and quality of food was above and beyond! The food was consistent and delicious, try the red dragon roll! I would strongly recommend this restaurant.

I have dinned at Blue Tail more times than i can count, I'm in there at least twice a week now. Chris usually serves me remembers my name and sits me at my favourite booth. I thought its about time i gave them a review. The Spicy Miso is a umami bomb! The Red Dragon Roll is a game changer... More

BlueTail is in my opinion not only the best sushi in Kelowna, it is also among the top all around restaurants in Kelowna. The food is always fresh and tasty. My husband and I have been there numerous times, and it has always been superb. It is definitely our "go-to" place, whether it is a special occasion, or a quick... More

While I wouldn't go so far as to say that this is the best Sushi I have ever tasted, it is very good and consistently so. Service has always been very attentive. I would recommend booking ahead on weekends as it does get busy. Groups bigger than 6 won't be sitting together. Very reasonable prices on wine where some places... More

A little out of our way and a strange location but great food and service was awesome. Went there when they first opened and they were very accommodating to our little ones with kids plates and cups. Food was very fresh and tasty! recommended.
