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

The sushi is fantastic and the atmosphere, though maybe not trendy does reflect true Tokyo sushi diner ambience. Not many seats and the hours are short so go early as it's usually packed.

Hubby is a regular at Mahoroba. The sushi is top notch, the bento boxes are very affordable and are always fresh with great portion sizes (sometimes a bit big, so bring your appetite). The servers are efficient and friendly. The best sushi in Vernon in my opinion.

I love Japanese food. But I would like to see the Sushi chef at work to know its fresh. Atmosphere could be better

I Love sushi but I have been spoilt by some fab places in Vancouver. The resturant is shabby but the food is resonable. I find the price quite high for the quality and ambiance of the place. But for Vernon I would say it's the best sushi if you don't care about the look of resturant and value.

I have been to Maharoba many times and it is by far the best in town and the best I have had most places. It is run by a local Japanese family who make perfectly rolled rolls and delicious other classic sushi house dishes. Everything is so fresh and delicious made when you order (not hours earlier like some places).... More

Quaint, and conveniently located in downtown Vernon, open for lunch and dinner, great staff, reasonably priced, our favorites are California rolls, salmon roll, New York roll, and the veggie roll. Their Assorted Tempura and the Chicken Yakisoba is something I would highly recommend for dinner, excellent date place or to hang with friends.Best to make a reservation Friday or Saturday... More
