An excellent Japanese restaurant in Kamloops! And excellent quality as well! I ordered nigiri sushi, and miso soup. The soup was average but the nigiri sushi was excellent and for a very fair price. I would eat here again in an instant even though the atmosphere is very quirky: it is half Asian food store and half diner-type restaurant. But... More

We used to order from Sanbiki a few times a month but recently, we have had several disappointing visits. A few weeks ago, we called in an order for pick up and we were quoted a price. When we went to pick it up, it cost 8 dollars more than we were told so we politely asked why and we... More

We found this restaurant on TripAdviser and decided to try it out. Food was tasty but a bit pricey for what we got. Only one cook was on so food took awhile to arrive. Friendly service. This restaurant also sells Japanese snacks and other Japanese food items so you can cook at home. Worth visiting.

Very good. Try it out! More money than your average sushi place but the quality is there. I was surprised to find this calibre of Japanese in Kamloops!

We were downtown at lunch hour and decided to come in for some sushi. We were not disappointed! We each ordered the favourite combo with California rolls and Dynamite rolls. Salad and miso soup was included. We also had a pot of green tea. Service was very good. Portions were generous. We had some rolls to take home but the... More

We came for a bite twice on our visit to Kamloops. It was really good both times!! A little inconsistent but good. The first visit the ramen we ordered wasn't spicy at all so we had to ask for more spice. I was surprised they didn't have any chilli oil or sauce to add. Instead, they gave us this powdered...

We order spicy miso ramen and fire ramen and found out that it was the best ramen we have ever had in Kamloops. The service was fast and friendly

We dropped by this restaurant on the way we came to Vancouver. The food (we ordered chicken bento and ramen) was so delicious and the server was very friendly. She tried to help us figure out which food was the best for us. We definitely comeback when we have a chance

We were a couple from Vancouver and we both loved Japanese food. We tried several Japanese restaurant when we traveled to Kamloops and the food at Sanbiki restaurant was the most traditional and unique. The waitress was very friendly and the service was fast. Will come back for sure!
