The sushi was wonderful and Charlie is very attentive. He makes our 83 year old mother feel super special every time we go. I so recommend!

Ginza has a large selection of food on it's menu. The hardest decision is what to eat. We were greeted upon entering the building and were directed upstairs. On our way to the second floor we were greeted a second time and directed to a table that would seat the four of us. Explanation of the various dishes was provided... More

I didn't stay for long, I rushed in and asked whether it was possible to get it to go. They nodded and we went ahead with the menu, selecting whatever looked neat or different. The Volcano Roll in particular was very nice, and I loved the deep-fried California roll, what a treat. Nothing incredible, but good sushi no less. I... More

Today was my second time at Ginza and it confirmed that this is definitely a go to place for sushi in Penticton. It was very busy for a Thursday evening and I was seated upstairs. Service was a bit slow as they were so busy, but the staff was working very hard and were very friendly. I ordered gomae, a... More

I've been to Ginza many times with my family and we go back whenever the mood for Japanese food strikes. There is quite a bit of selection and their rolls are very good. This is my go-to place for Japanese food in the Okanagan. The staff is friendly. I've never been disappointed eating here.

This is my go to for Japanese cuisine in town. It's never let me down. Great decor and friendly passionate staff. The sushi and wonton soup are excellent. Highly recommended. Great place to take a date or with friends!

Went for lunch and really enjoyed the bento boxes. The food was hot and really good - nice use of spices. Friendly staff - nice decor in an old house just off main street.
