good food, popular place

Interesting specialties in addition to usual sushi offerings, with friendly service and pretty good value. It can get a bit busy and noisy. No reservations.

Great food with a large selection of sushi. Service is always super friendly and efficient. We've been back plenty of times and are never disappointed. On busy nights you may have to wait for a table.

I went with the family last night for our once a month or so visit. Great and busy as usual. The kids can't get enough of this place, I think it's the only restaurant they get excited about. If you walk or bike you get 10% off which is a real bonus with a family! If you go on a... More

The sushi here was very good, but I found the building echoed and because of that it made the dinner very loud. People talking and having a good time. If you want energy and don't mind the noise the food is worthwhile.

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.
