Fish was very fresh, tuna cones were good. My younger one ordered chicken teriyaki. It was a very small portion and didn't come with rice (what??), so we had to order that as well. Gyoza was ok, a bit too fried for my liking. The restaurant ran out of ramen for lunch, which was very disappointing considering it was a... More

We had dinner there the night before Canada Day. It wasn't too crowded and the service was attentive. The tempura is rather good, but they don't provide grated radish in the dashi the authentic Japanese way. The sashimi and raw fish are fresh, but a bit overpriced and in smaller pieces than in Calgary or Vancouver... The ramen isn't bad,... More

This would have been an excellent rating, but we waited ten minutes to be acknowledged at the door. There were no other customers waiting. Our patience paid off, the food was excellent and so was the service. I'd go back again, but I'd "gentle" flag someone down to be seated.

A quaint little eatery that features easy to order Sushi. The service was quick and the sushi was just what we needed. You can order as much or a little as you want. The sushi was tasty, we went back a 2nd time because it was so good.

I have become addicted to the rock n roll sushi they offer. As well as the spicy scallop roll and various others. I often come here for a quick takeaway and the girls are always friendly & efficient. I'm always satisfied with my food. The only reason they didn't get 5 stars is because I feel as though it's just... More

Came here with hubby and they served decent down to earth Japanese food. You make your own selection on the menu card hence making the system easy Our California cone roll arrived and it was certainly tasty. Just like the real thing. Hubby's teriyaki chicken arrived without rice so we had to add the order. As they were serving sushi... More

We stopped here for lunch on the long weekend with a friend who had never had sushi before. We were there when they opened right at noon knowing the park was crazy busy with the long weekend... And sure enough there want a table left within 15 minutes of opening. It is a good place to go if you want... More

Pros: Service here was very good. Servers were fast and friendly. Food came out very quickly. Nice view if you score a table by the window. Tempura was very good. Agedashi tofu was good. Cons: Apart from the tables by the window, the rest of the restaurant is quite dreary. Sashimi was sliced very thin. Sushi was ok. They could... More

The wait staff are really attentive and the kitchen quick. It didn't take long for our group of 6 to receive our food. It's nice that they have quite a few veg options. Price is good, tempura yam sushi (the best!!), avocado & cucumber sushi, and shared veg tempura came to $10.

Awesome sushi! Can sit at the sushi bar or at a table. Best plate is the deep fried octopus in my opinion, it's definitely worth trying if you like calamari or octopus.
