Decent Japanese

I expected an average experience, being this is a small town, but after two visits, I find the head chef/ owner(?) to be very charming. Their servers are young, and what they lack in polish they make up with caring. Food is tasty and reasonable authentic. My Japanese wife was happy with her meal.

Once again, my husband had to have his sushi, and we not yet tried this place in town - so we went there today for a late lunch.

I got a take-out platter here once and sat in once for sushi, and enjoyed both meals. I plan to go back to try a ramen/soup or something hot next time. The staff are very genuinely friendly, and the service is prompt and efficient.

great location, fast and efficient service. Servers were friendly and attentive. Food came hot and quickly. Priced fairly for the amount of food that came. Would definitely come again; however, if coming with a group larger than 4 will book ahead as the restaurant is quite small and larger tables would need to be accomodated.

I was very impressed with the prices here as well as the vegetarian options. For $13 I was able to get 3 different kinds of rolls, soup, salad and tofu. All were made fresh and tasted great. It is also a great location, right in the heart of downtown Salmon Arm.

We ended up here after a disappointing meal at a different restaurant. The food was good, came out quickly, and the wait staff was attentive. I'll definitely return.
