Usually cities this far from the coast produce sushi that is generally not as fresh as coastal towns. I would say this is the best sushi I have had in the Okanagan hands down, comparable to Vancouver sushi!

My boyfriend and I visited Kelowna from Calgary and could not leave BC without having any of their fish in sushi form so I looked up "Best sushi places in Kelowna" and sure enough this place came up. Oh man, did they deliver. Every single piece of sashimi tasted fresh and melted in your mouth. The rolls were beautifully presented... More

This is a great place to go for sushi and Japanese food. The prices are amazing for what you are getting, the atmosphere is unique and modern with traditional elements. The food is always great and the staff friendly. Amazing place for lunch or dinner. Try the drinks and dessert, they add to a great meal!

I was staying in a hotel near this restaurant for a lenghty period of time. I probably ate here about 12 times in 3 months. I did not have a bad meal. The food was always fresh. The dragon rolls were a personal favorite. The service was attentive and fast. If i were to slight this restaurant it would be... More

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
