All of the meals are so carefully crafted. Anyone can find something on this menu. The chefs know most people by name and send tasters to your table if there is a wait. This restaurant is top notch! If you like Sushi at all... you HAVE to check out this place

I have tried many items on the menu, everything was excellent. Wonderful taste and presentation. If you don't see what you want just ask as they are always very happy to please. You may want to make a reservation as it is a very popular place.

Very exciting restaurant in Nanaimo. My wife and I tried the sashimi and the flaming roll. They were excellent. Service was fast and atmosphere is addictive. Very enjoyable. Will definitely re-visit.
