My husband and I dined here- we got a gluten free chicken sandwich and a sushi roll- both were very yummy and beautifully plated! Our waitress was kind and friendly. The service was on the slower side, but it was not a bother. We would return if we were back in Nanaimo (:

This is a wonderful restaurant in downtown Nanaimo. Great food & service coupled with a Sushi Bar make this a "must do" when visiting. The chairs could be a little more comfortable. The food is reasonably priced and of above average quality. There's pasta, sushi, seafood and even burgers. Normally I shy away from establishments that offer such an extensive... More

Great selection of food on the menu, something to suit everyone including children. The atmosphere was wonderful with live music in the back ground. Overall a really good experience and I would definitely return.

My husband and I had a late dinner here 2 nights ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. The place has a nice atmosphere and the interior is warm and inviting. They have a great selection of beer, and our server was very pleasant and helpful. We had eaten at this restaurant a couple of years ago and our meals were not... More

Since my first review in early June 2014, we have been back three times and we have been gone for a month. This is the first place we dined when we returned to Nanaimo. The sushi is even better than we remembered. Tony and Sarah are very gracious hosts. All the servers are friendly, knowledgeable about sushi, and professional. The... More

It is an old room, nicely decorated with wooden “pews” for seating. The menu is very eclectic - from sushi to flatbreads. The small plates are freshly made, creative and the portions are generous. We love to eat there before we catch a play or music at the Port Theater. There is always a “special” every day, including creative drinks.... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant, There is something on the menu sure to please everyone, from vegan dishes to burgers to seafood. I was able to actually have a healthy meal of salmon, quinoa and steamed vegetables, my husband the burger. The pies are just out of this world! They are homemade in the basement of the restaurant by our... More

We were spending just one night in Nanaimo with our 15-month old son, and needed a place to grab an early dinner that was toddler-friendly. Found Acme Food Co. and were not disappointed! Our server was fabulous - she knew exactly what tired parents with a toddler would need. Food was fast, tasty, and hot and the staff was friendly... More
