Food was quite good, service was fine and quick. They do close early, however. Nothing special but also no complaints

Always delicious & always convenient ! Their amazing Tiger Roll is my trusted go-to sushi roll. It's definitely one of my favorite hidden treasures.

I heard great things about this deli, decided to try it myself and am now a regular customer. They take the time to explain anything you ask, the food is awesome, always leaves you full & satisfied. I haven't tried the full restaurant downtown, but that will be next on my list, the deli is so convenient to grab an... More

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
