Great Sushi restraunt

This was probably our best meal in Tofino (and also the most expensive). It was I think the best sushi I have ever eaten, a smorgasboard of different tastes and textures. Nice location, overlooking the harbour, and with a log-cabin feel to the decor. Service was not the fastest, but when you're... read more

When we go to Tofino, we make a point to stop at Tough City Sushi for our fill of the best sushi ever. It is crazy busy most of the time but you still get great service and awesome food!

I keep coming back to this place because the sushi is amazing every time. The quality of seafood is great and were very happy with what we ordered; tuna sashimi, salmon sashimi, and a few house rolls.

High quality sushi right on the water in Tofino. Everything on the menu is solid and the fish is top quality. I eat there every time I am in town.

Great food. The only reason did not give 5 stars is the fact it is pricey but about 20% more is the standard for the area. Great location. Friendly staff.

We visit Tough City Sushi each time we come to Tofino. The perfect harbour view is enough to bring us back but the quality of the sushi is equal to the view. This time we had the 18 piece assorted plate including crab--what a treat. Service is prompt and friendly. You can't go wrong dining here.

The two of us and our daughter went in for dinner after an amazing day in Tofino. The sushi was incredibly fresh and tasty. I would highly recommend the salmon sashimi and the california roll with fresh shucked crab. Our waitress was very attentive and kind.

Lots of unique rolls. Our waitress was a character and willing to help us with local where to go information. Definitely loved the ambience with the old toys and signs and comic books. Lots to look at inside when you weren't caught with the awesome view outside .
