Best sushi in town

This is the best sushi I have ever eaten! I keep coming back all the way from kelowna! The food is always fresh, and served quickly. The prices are fantastic and incredibly reasonable for the portions that are given. Would definitely recommend to the avid sushi lover, or the first timer.

I love this place. If you want authentic Japanese food this is the place to go. In my opinion the best dishes are the assorted tempura (broccoli, sweet potato, potato, shrimp), the sunomono salad (shrimp, rice noodles, seaweed) and the tekka don (raw tuna, rice and vegetables). If you are in a rush or want a nice meal, this is... More

Fish is fresh, rice is fantastic. Favourite rolls are spicy tuna, BC, and Crazy Salmon! (Crazy Salmon is not on the menu). Service here is exceptional!

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.

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 best places to go for lunch in... More

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!
