The food is amazing, creative and flavourful. The staff is friendly and accommodating they make you feel like your family. The service is very quick. There are honestly not enough good words I can say about this place. I love it here. Best sushi in BC and possibly Canada. Make sure you try the BBQ tuna and both island fever... More

Get here early at lunch time- it's extremely crowded! Fresh food, friendly atmosphere and terrific staff. If you like Japanese food this is a MUST in Nanaimo.

There isn't going to be a review that says this place does not offer one of a kind customer service and experience. It just so happens the food is pretty good as well!

Simply the best sushi we have had in a very longtime, excellent service, fair pricing. This is a VERY busy restaurant, and not a good pick if you are pressed for time! If you have the time to wait for a table, you will be glad you did once the food arrives.

BEST sushi in town! Will be going back soon again The food tasted great and the service was absolutely lovely. However tho I wished that some waitress wore appropriate clothing. (too much skin showing.....)

We visited this place many times until we were served second quality food at more than one occasion. Not good to be a regular customer. We found fresher, less expansive at 2 other places. We will not give them another chance. They had too many with us. The only good thing is the service

Thank Suzanne F
