Consistently good plus a reasonable price. I have yet to be disappointed. Rainbow roll is fantastic.

Cute little blue resto. They have a variety of sushi to choose from. They have fast and efficient service. But the only thing I notice is that tables are close from each other and there's not much of a privacy.

As this was the only restaurant near our hotel, we ate there twice, once takeaway and once in the restaurant. The food was good on both occasions. I had yakosoboa - chicken or beef with noodles in a nice sweet sticky sauce - twice, once with chicken, once with beef. My husband had a beef teriyakii platter. This came with... More

I work out of town for weeks at a time, but when I'm back home in kelowna, there's only one place I have to MAKE SURE I stop in at, and that's bluetail. They make all of their food with love, and flavour. Anything you order is always going to be awesome, and if you don't think it is, you... More

We had a large group of 18 that was easily accomodated. The sushi was excellent and decent priced. The service was also excellent.

Really wanted to like this more than I did. Was with a large group of ladies. Mostly everyone was ordering tempura and rolls. They were pleased overall. Nice light batter. I decided to live large and went for the $30 surf and turf. Good points were nicely cooked salmon and very tender (very small though) tenderloin. Not great parts were... More

We have been to both locations (Spall and Commerce) but this review is for the Commerce location. The menu has all sorts of interesting and creative rolls which is why we came but in the end, the six rolls we ordered were variations of the toppings on the same filling. It was all tasty but nothing to wow. The sunomono... More

I'm usually a little wary of restaurants in small strip malls or plazas, but it would have been a mistake to not try this spot. Smallish but cool interior, this place was excellent from the time we entered. Very friendly waiter who was prompt without being obtrusive. We had the Viking Feast and it filled the 3 of us easily...
