Just like the title said. We shared a platter, added another roll and had green tea, was still under $30. I also had a miso soup which is great but not in a good price range ($4). Was a great dinner with a fantastic view! Would always go there to have great sushi.

...it's the place to go. The view is great, the food is on the level, the service is fine, the sake is good and warm, prices are a little stiff, but what the heck, you'r in Tofino, What do you expect ?

This had to be the absolute best sushi we have ever experienced and we have tasted it world wide. Great atmosphere too! The tuna salad dish was exquisite. Simply the best!

tuna tataki was overcooked, and at nearly $20, way to expensive. The bonsai and "buddah "rolls were really god, but again VERY expensive. Great views though! and you'll always get a seat in summer. good parking to.

Let me start off by saying this place has great food, absolutely excellent food. The sushi is fantastic, and after a day of surfing, carbs and protein are a welcome treat. They have some really unique rolls on their menu. The coconut surprise, I think it was called, is an absolutely delicious dessert and I wish I could find someplace... More

Perhaps I'm spoiled by Victoria / Vancouver but I was surprised the sushi at this place wasn't a lot better - especially given the price. I am totally down for paying $12 for a roll of sushi but I expect the quality to be commensurate to the price. (1) Too much rice (2) not enough ingredients - e.g. I'd like... More

Nice sushi, good beer, nice view from the back deck seating area. Take your binoculars, cameras with telephoto lens for between bite photo ops.
