Very good Japanese restaurant

Very nice Japanese restaurant in downtown Saskatoon. The food was excellent and fresh. The atmosphere is really nice with some Japanese flute music in the background. The waitress came in a kimono. Overall a nice experience. I'd come back.

Last night my wife and I ate at your restaurant for our 1st wedding anniversary. You had been recommended to us as a great place to eat. I must say I have never been so disappointed in a restaurant in my life. The food was absolutely horrible. The mido soup was vile, flavourless liquid with a few little bits floating... More

We stopped in here for a quick sushi supper before the movie, and were very impressed with the service and the excellent meal. We ordered the Chef's Sushi Platter, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Will definitely come back.

The sushi here has always been consistently delicious and fresh. When I go to Otowa I always eat the sushi and I don't order something I can get at dimsum. The nigiri sushi (especially tuna) is top notch. All of the maki (rolls) are great and I've tried almost all of them. But I never go without having some edamame... More

We really liked our meal at Otowa. The sushi was really good and fairly well priced. The service was good and the overall experience was positive. We had the Crab Rangoon (really good) and 4 rolls was about $40 ish. We'll definitely be back.

Loved the crab Rangoon that we had as an appy, but I found that the sushi wasn't quite up to par. It wasn't bad, but it was rather bland and definitely not the best in Saskatoon. (That's Sushiro, by the way). The decor is like something out of a seventies movie, but it's clean and the service was quick and... More

Great sushi- was around before sushi became 'the thing' and has never ceased to amaze me with all the varieties of sushi!! I've only had sushi here, but have always loved it

Excellent sushi and tempura . Great atmosphere - authentic with servers in traditional dress. Booths could have softer seats.

EVERYTHING is good about this place. The decor may need a slight "pick me up" but the staff is very courteous and the food is UNREAL.

My friend and I decided to try something a little different when having an early supper before an evening at a concert. We found the Otawa restaurant downtown, only 1 1/2 blocks from the Midtown Mall. The broth soup was tasty, the ginger topped salad very nice, and I can recommend the lemon chicken. She ordered and enjoyed the sushi.... More
