Situated next door to the budget motel where we stayed, this place was an obvious choice for dinner. The menu is extensive, delicious and the prices reasonable. We were greeted hospitably as we entered and were helped by all three, extremely friendly servers on duty, through the course of our meal. Very enjoyable and relaxing, after a days drive.

Stopped in on a business trip and hesitated to try sushi this far inland. Was pleasantly surprised with the quality, presentation, and freshness. Sides were very good as well. Will eat here again.

The building is unimpressive from the road into Merritt...so what...great Bento Boxes and Sushi. Staff are friendly and I could tell that many of the patrons were LOCAL - always a good sign. Over the past 5 years been there some 4 time s and will continue to do so .. thanks

The food was quite good at Garden Sushi. I was pretty impressed that Merritt had a decent sushi place. Some of the rolls were enormous, which is probably a good thing because they weren't cheap. I found the place a bit pricey, but I suppose the further you get from the ocean, the more your sushi is going to cost.... More

Long story short: we needed a pit stop and we found our way to Garden Sushi. It had a welcoming atmosphere, was clean and had a nice layout. Service was excellent, food came quickly and tasted amazing! Prices and portions were reasonable and comparable to other quality sushi restaurants. It is definitely a great place to stop for a quick,... More

This sushi was excellent, not just for Merritt, but generally. Tried dynamite, avocado, vegetable rolls, gyoza, gomae, edamame, and agadashi tofu. All were very tasty, although I've had much better agedashi. Be careful, though, the rolls/portions are massive, although the rice-to-filling ratio was great (easy on the rice). Got take-out so can't speak to the atmosphere. Menu is on UrbanSpoon.

The salad was enormus and delicious as were all the seafood. One of the best meals we have had in a few weeks of touring around (including some expensive restaurants) and... More

The further from the ocean, the less fresh I expect seafood to be. So I would never have eaten here if my partner had not insisted on trying to find sushi for dinner. The food turned out to be great. We had been in a hurry but the food was so good, the atmosphere was so comfortable, and the service... More

Usually I don't wanna try Asian good at a small town, it's usually very American, pricy and not taste like what it should be. However this one is better than a lot of restraints in Vancouver . Very good teriyaki, good value bento box. Recommend !
