Good, fresh food

Much better than you would expect in a small city. Food was fresh and tasty and the service very good. Slightly pricier than comparable places in Vancouver.

Good food. Compared to cities with many sushi places it is a little pricy, but it is worth going there. They also offer take-out

Powell River is this Calgarian's home town. I have given up on Sushi in AB and can't wait to get home. Minato is always my first lunch when I get home. Its well priced, amazing flavors and great variety. My sister is a lunch box gal and I love the selection provided in a lunch box but nothing beats their... More

I thought the sushi was a reasonable value and I really enjoyed the toro tuna. The wait was quite long, but they had a girl being trained when I was there. Overall I would definitely come back.

If you like sushi, sashimi and other forms of Japanese cuisine, this is the place for your taste buds to explore and simply enjoy. My husband went the first time under protest, since he didn’t think he liked sushi, but the friends we went with assured us there were other things on the menu. Well we didn’t even get through...

Overall, the decor of the restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. The place looks old and cluttered and tired and needs a good update. Someone said that this was the best sushi in Powell River, but that's not saying much - it's almost the only sushi in Powell River. The other places either only serve it occasionally or they...

Have been to this place a lot of times over the years and have never been disappointed. You will have to wait a while if it's busy because everything is done fresh to order and it is worth the time it takes. Service is awesome too!
