All the food was pretty delicious, but nothing was exceptional. I ordered the Bimibap which was very good but I can't compare it to others as I have never had it before. The sushi was good. The seaweed salad was good. My brother had the the Pad Thai which was overly sweet and below average. Service wasn't very attentive. I... More

Food was quite good, service was fine and quick. They do close early, however. Nothing special but also no complaints

busy but great service all the same for our table of 8! The young girl, a daughter of the owners was very good, remembered everything and was great at serving the food correctly. Follow up requests were perfect. Now on to the food, good fresh Japanese food. Sushi prepared at the counter bar in front of the patrons is a... More

Always delicious & always convenient ! Their amazing Tiger Roll is my trusted go-to sushi roll. It's definitely one of my favorite hidden treasures.

I've noticed that lots of people have posted reviews here for what appears to be the Isshin DINING RESTAURANT. This Tripadvisor page is for the Isshin DELI which is on Main Street and not Front Street. They have lots of sushi and Japanese salads to go that you can just grab and pay for if you are in a hurry.... More

We tried the crunchy salmon with spicy mayo, it is to die for, excellent. We also had salmon sushi, tempura shrimp, pork spring rolls, everything was great. The staff were very friendly as well.

Not the first time,and not the last. We arrived just before their kitchen was due to close.. We were welcomed, no issue with our late arrival. Excellent table service, no rushing, and best food!

We love lunch here and the specials are excellent. Isshin has a second location which is a "Fresh" seafood market. Here you can get lunch specials as well as Sushi and the best Fish and Chips ever! The fish sold here is absolutely the freshest fish we have found in the south Okanagan.
