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

Saskatoon has many 'all-you-can-eat' sushi restaurants, but if you are looking for mouthwatering goodness and quality Otowa is tops. The restaurant decor is great, the service has always been great. It is nice and quiet, very relaxing atmosphere. People coming from Vancouver or other places along the coast should try to keep in mind that it is more difficult and... More

Their Crab Rangoon is to die for! best I've ever had! Sushi is pretty good too, i'd say better than a buffet/ all you can eat style sushi restaurant.

My bill was $70 for food that normally costs around $40 in most sushi restaurants. I've paid half this for way better quality sushi at restaurants in Vancouver and Winnipeg. The Yam tempura was chewy and the either the wasabi or soy sauce was VERY salty. The service was good, but it wasn't very busy.

while we used to go regularly, a view of the kitchen and floors in daylight has meant we couldnt bring ourselves to go back:(
