We really weren't expecting too much and we were with a few people who claimed not to like sushi so much...however, everyone was pleasantly surprised. We all had a delicious meal and all claimed it was the best sushi we've had in a long time. Service was great and our table had a great view of the water.

We walked by this location a couple of times during ourTofino vacation, wasn't quite sure but decided to give it a try, we were pleasantly surprised, sushi was quite good, prices fair and the view from the patio was 'Spectacular'.

We lucked into this place, as it's not on the main drag (Campbell St), but one street closer to the water. Absolutely delicious rolls and other dishes, so flavourful. Great beer as well. And to top it all off, we watched 4 bald eagles play in front of us in the harbour while we ate. Wish we had time to... More

I found the prices here quite shocking. The food was good, but it wasn't fine dining. I don't understand why the prices were so high. The only thing I can figure is that it has a nice view and it's probably the only gig in town. They didn't have a Pinot Grigio, which was disappointing. I think it's the first... More

So apparently this place gets some great but also some not so great reviews.....and we can tell you that those poor reviewers are BLOWING SMOKE. I worked in sushi restaurants in Whistler BC for years and this place has world class fresh fish. The chefs obviously care about taste and presentation and the staff were wonderful. Yes the owner is... More

We experienced a great evening at Tough City Sushi. We had no reservation, but were seated within 10 minutes. Drinks and food came quick after ordering and was amazing! The kids loved the sushi, and they know they are experts ;). We also thought it was really perfect! Like a lot of places in Tofino, the atmosphere is really relaxed.... More

Nice place, food was good, beautiful garden, but very expensive and portions not correspondingly large... Not great value but a nice evening out.

This place does not look like a typical sushi restaurant but the food was awesome. Our family party of 8 ordered round after round of varied dishes and they were loved by young and old alike. Service was attentive and excellent. Even the colourful character who owns the place added to the entertainment! 😂 For those interested in restored or... More

We had heard the sushi was good and something you must do in Tofino but it wasn't until we tried it that we realized how good it really is. Must visit and maybe you will meet the crazy one of a kind owner. The views especially at sun set are breath taking and the Buddha roll is mouth watering. Great... More
