Wonderful food, we are Japanese food snobs. This is some of the best we have had. Highly recommend this for lunch or dinner. The "lunch box" selection was terrific. Lots of food. Sat outside on the sidewalk patio. Staff was friendly & helpful.

We were there recently for dinner and it was busy. We did get service but the server was not the best on describing any of the dishes on the menu. We ordered the Chef Special and although we had no idea what we were going to get, I think it would have been nice when the food was brought out... More

Five of us ordered delivery from Ginza! Excellent food, great phone service too! Food was delivered from a local delivery service called "FAST Lanes Deliveries" which made the order SO expensive! $9 delivery fee and an additional $2 fee for all Visa/debit transactions.

I'm not impressed at all. Service was slow (only 30% of occupancy) and in every course something was missing or wrong. Wine was too warm, water was not served etc. Their menu is not realy flexible, you can't change anything. Big no no from me.

Lots of variety and no disappointments. Staff inexperienced but eager to please. An easy walk from the waterfront hotels.

I went in here with a couple of friends. We got seated then waited almost 15 minutes to even be greeted. Drinks took another 25 and did not taste very well made. When we asked if we could order (almost 45 minutes after arriving) the waiter proceeded to roll his eyes at us and rushed us through our order. When... More

We stopped here for lunch on a whim and were very impressed with the lunch selection we chose (lunchbox A), the service, the window-side view of front street and the reasonable prices. It proved to be an undiscovered gem for us. We'll definitely return to sample more of their wide ranging food options!

Probably the best sushi in Penticton. Had dinner here with my brother and was blown away. They sushi is so fresh and done with such amazing detail, service was excellent. We will be back next time I'm in Penticton.

Had a lunch time teriyaki chicken box, everything was fresh and delicious! It was a busy lunch hour but we were still served very well considering it was packed :D
