Superb food, superb service.

A great varied food menu but unfortunately a very limited wine menu. Food came out very quickly and the service was extremely attentive. The Beef with bean sprouts was to die for and the chicken Karaage was deliciously fresh (and in my opinion) the best in town. We had a great value, authentic... read more

We came here last year to Harajuku and the service was super slow. This time, the service was very good but the restaurant wasn't as busy. The restaurant doesn't get a lot of foot traffic compared to Japanese restaurants like sushi village and Sachi sushi since the location is off of the village stroll. We ordered chicken karagee, a mango... More

We were looking for Sachi Sushi and gave up. We bumped into this restaurant tucked in behind the Conference Centre. Service was friendly and layout was cost. Meals were just OK - the Ramen was the pick, followed by the seared tuna and rice, but the tempura shrimp was doughy and tempura yam undercooked. Pricing was very reasonable.

We brought a Subway sandwich and bought some Sushi in this store. While trying to find a seat, the cashier came out and told us after you eat the Sushi here you need go out to have your Subway.

Can't say I'm a huge fan of this food. Was asked if we needed any explanation, but was very confused by a lot of the menu, not being an expert. Food was OK but not a lot of it. The mixes of ingredients meant there was a lot I couldn't eat, and the rest was not to my taste. Probably... More

Had a great family meal here. The restaurant is slightly out of the way, i.e. just off the main village way, but well worth the visit. service was excellent. friendly, attentive. courteous. Food was really tasty. The tempura had a lovely batter - light and crispy. The sushi was fresh and tasty. The sashimi was delicate and succulent. The rice... More

I've always been the type of person who said if you do not like the proportion or the quality of food, just don't go back, but I have to say something today, went to Harajuku and ordered 2 Bibimbap to takeaway, after paying and tipping, got home to find this, I was already shocked at the proportion of the meal...

I've been to all the Japanese restaurants in whistler and this one is by far the worst value for money, I came here for a quick take away and after waiting for too long I still tipped the service staff well. I was extremely disappointed by the portion size and quality of food. This is regretful as up until now... More

This little Japanese restaurant is hidden away from the main village but is not difficult to find. If you were led blindfolded to this place, you will think that you have been transported to a typical Izakaya place in Japan! The menu is quite extensive. They have a variety of sushi, udon, ramen and rice to choose from. Food quality... More
