After twenty minutes we received a complimentary edamame which was nice but our meal took another twenty minutes for a total of 40 minutes after we ordered. Thankfully the food was good but our mood for... More

If you want the BEST Sushi in town than the Firehouse Grill in Nanaimo is the place to go. The staff are amazing and polite. The Sushi is always a rave in my family. The West Coaster is my Ultimate Favourite! The Miyagi Prawns are always great too! And the Sushizzas are exceptional!

Always a weird vibe. Not sure why. Maybe the wait staff are too casual for me? Foods great either way.

We booked a 60th birthday bash. The staff went over and above, as we had a large portion of the restaurant. A good time was had by all, staff was attentive, food was good (but not excellent)
