The go to spot for Japanese Cuisine in Lethbridge. We choose the traditional rooms in the back. The staff are always friendly, helpful & courteous. We had the tempura prawns, California roll, teriyaki beef, chicken katsu, & chicken fried rice. It was all very fresh & delicious, we left stuffed!

Sat in the traditional Japanese rooms, which offer great atmosphere. I had the teriyaki beef and chicken. Chicken was great, beef was marginal and tasted like it was from a very poor cut. Huge portions for a reasonable price

We've gone to this restaurant for years, about once a year when we are in town. We used to love it, with it's "private" rooms with floor cutouts for sitting on the floor. This time, we were seriously disappointed. We were automatically led to one of these floor sitting rooms, and not offered the option of a regular table. We... More

This is a little gem in Lethbridge. The sushi and rolls are good, and at reasonable price. The service is efficient and friendly.

I went there with a group of eight. We were greeted warmly and didn't wait too long to be seated. It was a Saturday evening. The ambience was nice and the staff were very friendly. We received good service and the food was delicious. If you are not an Asian food fan and only going because the group chooses this... More

First of all it's important to note that if you're looking for some place to fill up on sushi without breaking a $10 bill, you've come to the wrong restaurant. The prices here are more Vancouver-level than small-city Lethbridge. Having said that, the offerings here are of an exceptionally high quality that any sushi place in Richmond would be proud...

Not much to say about osho's besides a nice place to get some clean Japanese grub. Good food, good atmosphere, fast service and so on. Their dumplings need a little work and so do the prices on some of their food. I've had better sushi but the stuff you get there is pretty good. If your younger and flexible you... More

Great, fresh sushi options and other Japanese selections, like Grrandma would make, if grandma was Japanese. Good, wholesome Japanese fare made fresh to order!

This authentic Japanese restaurant has everything you would expect in Japanese food. My wife and I ordered a noodle soup that was way more than we could handle although it was very good. They have an excellent sushi selection as well. We thought the soup, although very large and tasty was rather pricey however.

If you are looking for an authentic Japanese dinning experience, this is the place. There are traditional booths available where you sit on cushions on the floor, with a sunken area for your feet, there is also table and chairs as well as a bar you can sit at. The sashimi here is excellent, large portions and tastes excellent. I... More
