Always good

Have been there 4 times now and it is always good. Apparently has a regular crew as it is often busy. Probably good to make a reservation on a Friday night. Enjoyed the wonton soup for a starter and all the sushi we have tried is really good.

We enjoyed the friendly welcoming staff, good service as well as tasty fresh Bento boxes. We have been back twice since our first lunch there. They also offer take out. I think they are open evenings, but are Closed weekends.

Small unassuming restaurant in French Creek area, Parksville, very authentic, very good food. Sushi is very good and the Bento Boxes for lunch are wonderful. The separate Danish bakery next door is also very good.

Very efficient, friendly service. While I was there at a busy lunchtime there was very little wait for completion of the order. The food was delicious and we wish we had ordered more!

We've eaten lots of sushi in Vancouver and Victoria and were worried we wouldn't be able to find good quality sushi in Parksville. But this place has amazing sushi. The tuna melts in your mouth. All the dressings and sauces are awesome. There are some unique items on the menu, like the salmon and mango roll with a fabulous basil... More

We live in the area and have been frequent customers at Sams. We had another great dinner with good service and reasonable prices. Our grandsons always request that grandpa takes them to Sam's for lunch on pro D days. Best sushi in town.
