decent food but bad atmosphere

I rarely eat in at this restaurant. I like the food for the most part, but never ever order anything with prawns as they always taste medicinal. Price is OK. I almost always order take out as the restaurant itself smells funny, has a creepy dirty carpet and is super dark and dingy.

LOTS of cooks, barely one waitress - whose eye-sight was failing as it was quite disgusting to sit across from a recently emptied table with food all over the floor and booth. CLUE: Do not wipe the table AND booth seats with the same cloth and then toss it on the next table to be bused. Are the staff taught... More

We have frequented this restaurant many times and thoroughly enjoyed our meals but our last experience was very disappointing. In the past the fish was always fresh and beautifully presented. Our last experience involved a special treat for a group of friends. I ordered a large assortment of sushi for takeout- over $100 worth. The rice was chewy. Much of... More

We were spending the day in Port Alberni and I put out a facebook query to get suggestions about where to eat and got quite the recommendation to try Seh-Mi Sushi. Don't let the fact it's in a hotel turn you off. Although the inside is a little randomly laid out it was clean and we were greated by a... More

My wife and I stayed at the Timberlodge hotel and happened to try their restaurant. To our surprise, the sushi was awesome, I had the Bento Box California and she had the Dynomite Combo. Service was good and the restaurant was clean. It was a good dinner and I recommend this restaurant....

Can not say enough good about this restaurant! I have been eating here for years and I have never had a complaint. All of the food is always great. My favourite is the Crunch roll, with the California Be to Box.

The food is always great, as is the service and the prices are spot on. The decor is tired and dated and mish-mashed. Tropical carpeting, cedar walls and Japanese style decorations. The doors are frequently open and it can get cold in the restaurant.. and flies tend to make their way in the open doors and harass you while you... More

What a shock this little restaurant is. We stumbled in it once and we continue to go back. FANTASTIC food!! Bento boxes are great value. Some of the best sushi I've ever had. Especially love the California Crunch Rolls.

This is not my first choice to eat sushi in Port Alberni. The service was slow, the food was not that great, and the atmosphere is old and unappetizing.

Great sushi, great prices. I recommend the california cruch roll. My husband and I went here for Valentine's Day recently. We had the Seh Mi Boat, and it was fabulous! Nice assortment of sushi + miso, tempura, and sonomo for 2....Yum!
