Amazing

This is by far the best sushi I have ever had. The rolls taste absolutely amazing. I can easily come here and spend $50 just on rolls. The meals are not cheap but are definitely worth it. The staff are always friendly and offer top notch service.

It's rare to have such a perfect sushi restaurant in a small town, much less a small town really far from the ocean, but these folks have done a great job making a real restaurant experience with brilliant food. Swift service for lunch and dinner, value packed meal options, and quality offerings make this the only sushi place in Revy... More

By way of background, we're Australian on our second trip to Revelstoke. We have been to Japan seven times, so have a very good appreciation for quality Japanese food, which is what you will get at Kawakubo Japanese Restaurant, in Revelstoke, BC. They have a great range of food options, prepared fresh to order. We tended to have their special... More

All home made ingredients. Good food. House wine is great too. Prepared with passion. Don't miss this one when in Revelstoke (or Vernon).

This really feels like an authentic sushi restaurant, placed right in the middle of inland BC. The food was excellent with a great choice of dishes/sushi. The prices were reasonable prices. Service was friendly. Would eat there again !

The restaurant was very busy when we were there on a Tuesday night so glad we had a booking. We had our own room upstairs. We only ordered sushi and sashimi dishes and everything was fresh and tasty. We weren't sure what the quality would be like considering how small the town is and how far we were from the... More

On recommendation of an expert I had this roll yum we also shared tempura, potstickers and miso soup all well above average.

…and it's grand! You would never know that you are in the interior. Sushi is my most favourite food and you can get an excellent meal here. Fish is fresh and tasty and everything is made to order. The red dragon roll is especially good, a must try in Revelstoke.
