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...

Isshin is now located on Front Street in Penticton . They have the best...hands down...sushi. The food which is of Japanese and Korean origin is all excellent.

We have enjoyed Isshin's for more than five years. Being exposed to authentic seafood at many places in the world, even at the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, Japan, we must say that this restaurant has a mission to introduce us to real Japanese-style sushi in as authentic way as possible. (Yes, sushi rice should be luke warm and has... More
