Great Lunches

Have been a number of times for a quick work lunch. Usually there's just enough time to squeeze in a bento box special. Nice variety, super friendly folks, good value. Sushi was all delicious. Definitely a 'go-to' place for a good lunch, nice bright flavours, etc. Near the top on my list of... read more

This small and fairly unpretentious place on Vernon's main drag was packed to the gills but when the food arrived I was left to wonder why. Rice is overcooked and oversalty, the knife work is clunky and the fish is supermarket standard, certainly well below sushi grade. What I simply cannot comprehend is why the owner of this place has... More

Louisiana-style entree was fabulous! Classical sushi is top-notch! All in all, this place is nice, and casual, and not terribly over-priced. Unpretentious and very friendly staff makes for a pleasant experience.

We've been going to Mahoroba for several years - great little sushi place, with good atmosphere, and pleasant staff. Have to reserve ahead on weekends.

Friends recommended this place for dinner as we all like sushi. We tried 6-7 different rolls, salad, miso soup, tempura, edamame and fried noodles - pretty much a feast - and everything was delicious. The staff were really friendly as well which was nice. We will definitely be back to this place sometime soon!

Not only was the food horrible smelling, it tasted incredibly awful! The place is run down and the food horrible! We usually feast at Wasabi, unfortunately for us Wasabi was closed due to the holidays and we had the misfortune of trying this place based on reviews! I am almost certain that the good reviews where made by the owner... More

The food at Mahoroba is always delicious and the service is always friendly. Not sure what else one could want in a restaurant. It's not brand new, but is kept well. I've gone a couple of times with friends and everything has gone perfectly each time. I've booked my birthday dinner there for this week!

We always go to Wasabi across town for sushi, so decided to try Mahoroba instead after being recomm. by friends who like sushi. Immediately upon entering, I noticed the walls were very dirty/ weathered looking. Sat down anyways as I try not to judge a book by its cover. Menu was limited, with very little rolls available compared to other... More

We arrived shortly before closing on a Saturday night however the staff was more than accommodating. We were warned that our food might be delayed as they had a couple of large parties ahead of us but, in fact, our food arrived before the other tables! The food was hot, generous portions and I'm told that the Nigiri was to... More

We were in that restaurant some time ago...The food is excellent! The servers on the other hand are slow... The Restaurant isn't that big, and in any other Restaurant that size, they only usually have ONE server to take care of an area that size... We had the same server [with the Long Ponytail] blotch my order.... not once, but... More
