After walking a few blocks in the bright sunlight, it was nice to be greeted to a homely, dimly lit but "asian" themed interior - score one circle. Ordered an appetizer of gyoza and rice and then had the tempura & beef teriyaki which was really good. I'm picky with my gyoza - I don't like it deep-fried but it... More

We have eaten here many times over the last few years and always have an enjoyable meal. Of course there are so many choices one has a difficult time deciding what to try next. I try to look at what others around us have to maybe have that the next time.

Ate here twice. Had nigiri, sashimi, tempura, rolls, etc during the two dinners. All really good. Service was good but one night was busier than the first so had to flag someone down for more Sapporo. Al in all, a great place to eat.

I've had worse teppanyaki (even though no hot plate here) in Japan, this is good food in the north of Canada ...

I spent time teaching English in Japan and loved the food. Now back home here in Canada we have good sushi and Japanese dishes. But this place hit the nail on the head and a person would think they are really back in Japan eating the authentic dishes. You won't be disappointed at all. Go and enjoy!

The food was nice, my wife's Tempura/Tofu was reportedly very nice, my Tonkatsu was real average compared to what you get in Japan. Tried to go back for Sushi on another day, but they were in the process of closing for the day (9.30 p)

Sushi very good as is all the other fare offered! If you are going for lunch go early as the noon hour is busy with the downtown visitors and the business luncheon patrons.

This is a crowded place but seems very understaffed. Be ready to stay in long wait lines. The server did not know proper English and could not help us understand some of the dishes. Also they took a long long time to prepare our dishes which would have been ok if the food was extraordinary, but it wasnt. I would... More

There are a handful of Sushi restaurants around Whitehorse, and for whatever reason when I was exploring around town I chose this one (I think it was the number of cars parked out front). It did not disappoint...I enjoyed my Combination Sushi (3 different varieties of rolls) so much that I returned the very next day to try a different... More
