I decided to try the soup after reading the rave reviews. It was excellent! Rich broth, perfect noodles and tender beef. Also had gyoza that were the best I've ever eaten. All this and a really helpful friendly waiter. I'm going back.

Love this place, always good service and yummy, creative, nourishing eats. This is probably our favorite place to eat in Kelowna, favorite Japanese restaurant for sure. Love the garage door/patio open in summer! They serve local wines and other drinks. Sometimes the amazing black cod and okonomiyaki are limited/not available but so worth trying/waiting for! Stoked to have this restaurant... More
