The food it is excellent and the atmosphere is great -- Japanese with some concessions to the West Coast B.C. location. The serviceare friendly, although not very speedy.

This restaurant has been in Campbell River a long time. They have great food and service. I find them a little slow on weekends, only because their really busy.I also find it expensive . This is my 3rd favourite place to eat sushi ( 1st-Takao's Kitchen 2nd -Wasabiya Japanese )

I should start by saying that my wife and I are not sushi experts in any way. In fact, this was our first sushi experience and we loved it.

The service was enthusiastic . We had lunch there and ordering bento boxes. The food was very average and lacked the flavours that genuine asian cuisine has.

Not sure why this has a 4 star review here. I get better sushi inland Canada where there is no access to water. Horribly overpriced and terrible quality. Final Thoughts: I would not go back here even if somone else was buying.

Owner runs this restaurant and stays on top of everything. He also makes the sushi himself. Very experienced. Been in business for over 20 years. A real treat.

Always fresh, always slow, but always very good. We go here more for lunch than for dinner and have never had a bad meal. Ever. They have the best tempura udon soup!
