“talented chef, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

This is a fairly casual sushi restaurant with a nice little selection of korean dishes. I dropped in late on a Wednesday evening, ordered 'the chef's special sushi', a couple of inari, and a miso soup. The miso soup was very good, but the inari were about half-sized. In fact, on close examination they proved to be one inari that was cut in half! I was still charged for two... :-(

The waitress, though friendly and efficient wasn't quite sure of what the advertised 'chef's special' consisted of - she described it as "a seafood something". It would have been helpful if she had warned me it was SPICY seafood something - as it was enormously spicy. Luckily, I love spicy sushi, so it was not a problem for me ... but for many other sushi fans - I could well imagine them having to send it back!!! Anyway, whatever it was, it was BRILLIANT! One of the best spicy chef's special sushi rolls I have EVER had. Overall: Five stars for the chef, 3 stars for the management - call it 4. Just be warned, it's not exactly a 'budget' sushi place. But not crazy expensive either...

“Ok But I've Had Better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

I've had better. Place smelled like disinfectant as soon as we walked in. My Cali Roll was gummy and wet and tasted off. What's with that? My daughter's Philly roll was ok. I was impressed by the waitress though. She was very cheerful and accommodating but I don't think I will go back. I know more affordable places that are better in Kamloops.
