We got a nice spot on the patio with a great view of the ocean. The service was fast and the food was amazing. It was a little expensive but well worth it, the fish is very fresh. And the pieces/rolls are larger than your usual sushi place. We were there at opening time which is 1200hrs and there was... More

My boyfriend and I were craving fresh seafood on our first evening in Tofino and we stumbled upon Tough City Sushi. We knew right from the get go that it was a relaxed atmosphere as we sat ourselves on the patio overlooking the beach/waterfront. Our server was extremely slow... the table of 4 people next to us was seated after... More

What a wonderful spot! We ate the freshest wild salmon and tuna ever. View was more than spectacular. Weird that they only got 4 stars here. Go there if you ever have the opportunity! Staff is also really nice.

Very good sushi. Very friendly staff. Our kids had chicken skewers so it's not all sushi (but almost).

We enjoyed 2 dishes, the Sushi sampler and their Spicy platter, a couple of shots of warm Sake and a more perfect meal could not be had.

We came here looking for a good quick lunch on a somewhat rainy day. We did not expect much from this place on the outside but gave it a try. The owner makes you feel like you are family. He came around and said hi and chatted to everyone. We watched him later feed the birds down at the dock.... More

We sat out on the deck and had an amazing sushi dinner served by an exceptionally sweet waitress! Worth going to! Big portions and great taste!

Walking in to tough city, you don't really expect a menu of quality sushi. But looks can be deceiving! This was delicious and very fresh sushi. The owner "crazy Ron" is a gem. He's worked hard to make this restaurant what it is, including finding some great sushi chefs straight from Japan!

It's right on the coast, lovely views of the sea and islands. It's a pub serving sushi - and of good quality. Good service, good value.
