Best in Saskatoon

Do not let the out dated decor fool you. This place has great food and sake! The staff are all friendly and are quick for service. It is quite expensive but if you want the best sushi you gotta come here. It's always fresh and always delicious.

Maybe it was an off day. Reading other reviews about this place makes one feel that in this day and age, when jets safely deliver same-day served frozen fresh fish for sushi, you can pretty well guarantee that you CAN get a fully authentic sushi experience on the wide Canadian prairie, thousands of kilometres from the ocean. Unfortunately, it wasn't... More

This is the only place I will have sushi in the prairies. It is always fresh and delicious. I love the spicy tuna roll and the salmon sashimi.

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
