I was impressed by the freshness and quality during previous visits and have written in trip adviser accordingly. Had lunch there on a stop over and have to say something changed. The sushi was ok but the teriyaki tasted stale and "looked old" service was friendly and fast. Has the chef changed? new owners? I don't know. but it appears... More

We have raved about this sushi place for years, the past few times seem to have been disasters, different cooks each time, menu items are prepared different, hot plates don't sizzle anymore, and came out completely different from what it used to be! Sushi takes FOREVER to get, and it was NOT busy!!!

Second visit in a row that hasn't been it once was. We used to come weekly.....seems that with new cooks & sushi staff, everything changes....why change a good thing? Sushi takes forever, hot food arrives much faster, hot plates no longer sizzle, servers do their best but the owner doesn't seem to care! Sad day!!!!!!

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.
