I took my adult family here for supper. My kids had been here a number of times and really liked it so suggest we all come as a family. I was exceptionally pleased with the quality and prices. We had an amazing meal with beer, sake, and lots of food...the bill came to $ 150.00 with a generous tip......for five... More

Had a lovely lunch here today! Don't be fooled by the low-budget parking lot or the lack of a waterfront view - the food is excellent! The place is fresh and contemporary sporting friendly staff and an excellent menu! I ordered the Lunch Combo which came with a miso soup and 2 maki rolls of choice (Avo-Yam & Veggie for... More

This little gem is in a funny place but once you walk inside you forget the ugly parking lot. Nicely appointed with modern touches and great lighting. I have eaten here many times and have never had anything that wasn't wonderful. They really know how to serve albacore so if you like tuna try the "tuna three ways" appetizer. The... More

We loved every dish we ordered at this restaurant. Stayed in Kelowna for four days and ate supper here twice! Service was friendly and attentive. One small thing that we didn't like the first night was cold miso bowls which resulted in very tepid soup. We asked about it on the second trip and the waitress explained they keep the... More

We discovered Blue Tail when we had a craving for sushi and food no other sushi places open on a Sunday. To our surprise, the sushi was excellent. Blue tail tends to stick to stick to well-known variations of sushi, but the quality and composure of the dishes leave most sushi joints in the dust. The green dragon sushi is... More

I was so impressed the first time I had to you with a five star review and then we decided to come back a second time. This restaurant lived up to my first review a second time. We tried a few different rules this time including a volcano roll which comes to the table on fire which was visually impressive... More

I'm the type of person that needs to eat sushi once a week. When my partner in crime and I have enough expendable income and were feeling in a "treat yo self" kind of mood we always head here. Sushi is unreal I've never had anything that wasn't delicious.

Being from Vancouver we eat sushi regularly and are used to some very nice restaurants. The interior is beautifully designed. The ebi and Tako sunomono salad was artfull presented in a lovely plate garnished with fresh blueberry, grape, tomato and strawberry. It really elevated the dish and balanced the acid of the vibegrette. We had a number if chef rolls... More
