The Sushi Ichi always present a delightful Bento box selection at lunch times, well worth the visit.

“Sushi ahhhhhh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

The staff is extremely friendly, the owner and front end sushi chef's are excellent, the food is fantastic if you sit at the tables or at the Sushi bar. I will keep coming back. I like the Nabiyaki Udon soup, Tuna Tetaki, and the rolls. Bon Apitit

“Fabulous food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

The sashimi was the best we ever had - amazingly fresh and tasty. That may have something to do with being located on the ocean and having access to fresh caught seafood. However, everything was excellent - the gyoza, the salad, the agedashi tofu, etc. Our kids wanted to eat there every day. Service was friendly and personal.

“25+ year Sushi Aficionado”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This may reputedly be one of the better sushi restaurants in the area---but let it be known that 'Nori' in Nanaimo is a far superior restaurant with higher grade and vastly fresher seafood, fantastic plate/a la carte presentation, better eating environ and far and away much greater table/bar service.

Sushi Ichi--I recommend the tobiko with quail egg (ample quantity of tobiko served up there), the tako was fine, negitoro was predictably alright, too.

This is pretty pedestrian sushi by any account. I would not arrive expecting anything above standard generic sushi fair--it will certainly rise above something you picked up at the supermarket or some relative hands-on and/or take out ready-made sushi somewhere on the road.

Sushi Ichi is CLOSED on Mondays, and, because it's about the only sushi restaurant left in parksville it is often slow to seat you. Get a reservation in advance, or, come anticipating it will take a good while to get seated and/or served your sushi/food order.

“Great little Japanese restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

We went here for an anniversary with another couple. We had visited previously. The halibut and prawns tempura was really good, as was the veggie tempura. We had rice and the tsunomono salad. The other couple had bento boxes and were quite happy with them. We have tried the bento box in the past ourselves and have always enjoyed it. The prices are pretty reasonable. Nice for a dinner out without having to spend an arm and a leg. Would definitely recommend.
