Awesome fresh made sushi in the pub; reasonably priced. Friendly open atmosphere. This minimum 50 character limitation is annoying

There was a lot of choice from the menu, the food was great and we liked the idea of the 17 piece orchestra playing there that night.

I've had not so good experiences going for a meal and drinks at the flying canoe. I went to hang out with friends and was not surprised to find the same problems again. So when are they changing this place's name from a Pub to a Club or a bar? I arrived late to join my group of friends, a... More

Hi Katerina A, Thank you for taking the time to post your review on The Flying Canoe. I am extremely sorry that you still did not know, especially after your last visit and review, that The Flying Canoe operates as a club on Friday and Saturday evenings only, after 10:00pm.

Service is great. Food is very mediocre, go for the drinks and young crowd around you. Pizza is nothing to rave about. Sushi is cool, but way too may different options and no consistency.

Many people enjoy ordering our Sushi using "Omakase" - this is where Chef will make a special plate, not following the menu. In these instances we do not... More

Really hoped for a good sushi experience. The chef was very nice. I ordered 2 chop scallop and a dynamite roll. No mention that the dynamite roll had the spicy red in the dynamite roll. Never experienced that before. The rice was super dry and the roll was a disapointment. The chop scallop was good. Hoping to cool the spice,... More

Kai is a wonderful sushi chef. The best way to order is to give a $ amount that you would like to spend and the wonderful food arrives. Typically my husband and I order $30.00 worth between the two of us and we are extremely full when we leave. The variety and presentation is second to none. It is the... More

Went out for a nice meal and brew at this establishment, had been there before. However things have changed and we were very disappointed with all aspects. Service and food below average, probably not returning. Not pleased.
