The food wasn't bad, service was slow and the inside of the restaurant is shabby. I would not recommend this restaurant. My husband finished his meal and we thought mine was coming, then they informed us they had served it to him. We have never been there before so are not familiar with their dishes. No attempt was made to... More

This place definitely looks pretty sketchy and run-down from the outside. I've driven by it many time on previous trips to Penticton and never thought of trying it, but based on TA reviews and a desire for something different for dinner, my wife and I gave it a try. We were relieved to find that the interior was quite different... More

Went here for lunch while on business at the Penticton Conference Centre and was pleasantly surprised by the great sushi. The ingredients were very fresh, even compared to some restaurants in Vancouver, etc. I would recommend the Butterfly Roll or Caterpillar Roll and the prices are very reasonable - around $3-$14 for sushi rolls. The place is fairly small and... More

It's a bit off the grid and doesn't get the hype other Japanese restaurants get, however, we've never had a bad meal here. Sushi, sashimi is always fresh and the dunburi, teriyaki, tempura, et all is nicely prepared.

We always choose this restaurant to take my husbands parents to when they come to town to visit. The food is always delicious, and never disappoints. We went last night and ordered a new dish on the menu, The Caterpillar. It was gorgeously presented and was absolutely delicious. Our waitress, Katrina, was so pleasant and the lovely owner checked in... More

Nancy Kim uses fresh ingredients & works wonders with them at this unassuming little rather out of the way Japanese & Korean Restaurant, located in Penticton, BC, Canada, at the corner of Westminster & Power Sts. Parking behind & on the street nearby. The place does not look like much but the food is consistently excellent. We have eaten in... More
