I've noticed that lots of people have posted reviews here for what appears to be the Isshin DINING RESTAURANT. This Tripadvisor page is for the Isshin DELI which is on Main Street and not Front Street. They have lots of sushi and Japanese salads to go that you can just grab and pay for if you are in a hurry.... More

We tried the crunchy salmon with spicy mayo, it is to die for, excellent. We also had salmon sushi, tempura shrimp, pork spring rolls, everything was great. The staff were very friendly as well.

Not the first time,and not the last. We arrived just before their kitchen was due to close.. We were welcomed, no issue with our late arrival. Excellent table service, no rushing, and best food!

We love lunch here and the specials are excellent. Isshin has a second location which is a "Fresh" seafood market. Here you can get lunch specials as well as Sushi and the best Fish and Chips ever! The fish sold here is absolutely the freshest fish we have found in the south Okanagan.

Having tried all the Japanese restaurants in Penticton this is hands down the best. At times due to it's popularity it can be busy and you might wait for a table but it is worth it. Good variety of dishes and they are willing to make something special if requested. Excellent beverage values and selection. It is our go to... More

Server ignored our table and wouldn't even bring us drinks after asking 3 times. Food came out 30 minutes apart so half the table was done by the time I started. Once the food was out server notified us that they didn't have any more real crab so they put imitation in but I can't have it because I'm gluten... More

Having lived in Japan for 15 years I can say that the food here comes pretty close to the 'real deal'. The menu is fairly extensive and the prices are reasonable. The portions are also very large. My only gripe would be that the kitchen is sometimes very slow...we have waited well over 30 minutes for a simple lunch order... More

We eat here regularly. Food is excellent. Their specialty hot sauce is amazing. They sell it by the jar and I make sure we are always well stocked at home. They create an authentic Bibimbap which is woth the wait (menu warns that it takes 15 minutes). Their sushi is excellent. We go at least twice a month and have... More

It really is amazing how the same restaurant can elicit strongly positive and negative reviews. My experience there was pretty well 100% negative so here it is with both barrels blazing: - As soon as you walk in you're confronted with a fishy smell, and not exactly a pleasant one. - Right beside the back seating area you have a...
