“A great deal to be aware : 2 course instead of 3”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Got an interesting offer in dealfind.com for 3 Course Sushi Dinner for 2 People, Including Sushi, Asian-Cuisine, Seafood and Drinks (Up to $66 Value) when I was visiting the capital with my spouse. Though it was not an easy spot for a tourist to find in the peripheral of Ottawa, we were warmly welcomed in a cozy corner near the bar after presenting the voucher printout. When the list of deal menu was offered, it mentioned only 2 main courses instead of 3. We check it over with the printing version and insisted for 3 course sushi as written in the deal, not 2 course as it written in their piece of paper. The server should asked the manager before approving our request, but we found that other clients using the same deal was offered with 2 instead of 3 course.
In spite of this unfair offer, the sushi was great in everything: taste, quantity and preparation.

“Food was awsome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We were very impressed by the quality of the food. The appetizers and main courses were just awsome according to us. We can't wait to go back to eat at Sawa Sushi (centrum blvd., Orleans, Ontario).

According to our visit that we qualify of excellent, we highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that likes good quality of sushi and also to anyone that would like to try something new; the menu really offers a wide variety of food. You just make a choice according to your taste.

The personnel (staff) is also nice and friendly.

“Really, really good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Lately, it seems that AYCE sushi places are popping up all over the place. I've been to several that were pretty sad. However, Sawa, which just opened on Aug 15th, is definitely worth visiting. We stopped in for lunch today, Tues 28 Aug and were "Wowed". The food was fresh, cooked just right, accompanied with appropriate sauces and presented by friendly, efficient staff. They use quality ingredients and give eye-catching presentations. I could well imagine a weekend dinner here soon.

“Nothing less than a five star!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

I've tried so many AYCE sushi places in Ottawa and this is absolutely the best I can say! Shrimp tempura is just crispy as it should be with no excess oil, sashimi is the freshest out of all, and the mango roll is no doubt my favorite! I also tasted some other items that not normally offered in the all you can eat restaurant, they actually do a better job on the Pai Thai than the some regular Thai restaurants. The servers are very attentive, with great smile all the time. Great atmosphere! Will definitely go back!
