Great eats!

Stopped by after a day on the slopes and we were very impressed with the menu selection, waitress knowledge and speed of service. We will definitely be visiting again on the next visit. Heads up - if you order the Kazaan rolls, be prepared for some intense spice! Not for the weak!

This is the restaurant we go to more than all the others in town. Birthdays, holidays, weekdays and weekends. It's where we take friends for a Fernie experience and have never been disappointed. Some people complain that there are no reservations but I love it, the 5PM line up is where everybody recounts their day on the hill, river or... More

So fresh and delicious! We come here often and it's always busy. We booked the tataki room this past visit for the 8 of us. Everyone was extremely happy with their meals, the servers are friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Love the decor and ambiance! Our go to favourites are the gomae salad, tuna tempura, lobster, and krista roll. Would love... More

Great variety on the menu, good fresh sushi and generous servings. Great value for money and lovely ambiance. Also had the sticky date pudding for dessert which was delish. The service was excellent and swift.

This restaurant is crazy busy. We tried to go on a Friday night at 8.30pm and it was packed. We decided to go back the next day around the same time and it was packed again! But we managed to get seated at the table bar. Waitresses are super nice and friendly. We ordered 5 or 6 different type of... More

Yamagoya did not disappoint this Valentine's Day. The fish is amazingly fresh for this far inland but what really separates this restaurant from others is the efficient organization of the front of the house and the wait staff. They keep diners satisfied when there is a long wait and have a great system in place to serve drinks and appetizers... More

The servers are remarkably friendly and attentive, the place does get super busy most evenings so u have to be patient, but it's definitely worth it. The food is fresh and delicious. Sake is hot and served and refilled quickly. On three different occasions had excellent, friendly service from a smiling lovely waitress. Recommend it to everyone--even saw young children... More
