If you don;t know sushi, you might have issues

Looking at some other of the reviews, mostly by people who don;t know sushi, I can see why they didn't have the best experiences. When we are in a questionable sushi place, we always order a roll and a couple of pieces of sashimi first to judge how it is. We did that here and everything including... read more

We had been craving sushi for a while and this restaurant's sushi hit the spot! Everything was so fresh and delicious. I had the special sushi roll combo which included California roll, chicken teriyaki roll and dynamite roll. All three rolls were super fresh. The service was also excellent - everyone was super friendly. I will definitely be back the... More

Coming from Vancouver, my expectations were high going into this restaurant (we were so excited to see a sushi restaurant!). We were charged for tea and the sushi rolls were 2x more expensive than rolls in Vancouver and they were not spectacular. It was busy so I'm sure others do enjoy coming here but we were pretty disappointed and would... More

The sushi always tastes very fresh, the service is fast, and the staff is very lovely! I try to go here every time I am in Whitehorse.

Easy to locate with on-street parking by the white building with green trim. It is the largest of the three Japanese Restaurants in Whitehorse. Its Sushi was ok, but its tempura breading was too heavy for our liking. Prices seemed reasonable. Service was somewhat slow. Paying our tab seemed to interfere with their cashing up time. The attitude of the... More

Late afternoon and there were only two other people in the restaurant. The place is so dark you can barely read the menu. Unlike many Japanese places, the menu has few pictures and though there is a good selection of dishes, the descriptions are very poor, and the Japanese names don't tell you much if you're not familiar with Asian...

For only two tables in the restaurant we sure received bad service. The server only answered my questions with what seemed to be a grunt and then spent the rest of the time sitting at the bar area have a very loud conversation with the cook. So not only was this horrible service but also a very un-friendly environment to... More

I ordered a combination dinner. it came with miso soup, a variety of sushi, and then a platter of chicken, pork, salad, rice, and tempura . OMG. it was huge. and it was the best food I have... More

It's good to have a nice restaurant like that in a very far away city. The service is great, the food is fresh and very good. I liked the presentations of the plates, which is not very usual as well. Take a try.
