I have been here several times and constantly order take-out from here. All the sushi rolls here have been fantastic. My favorite.....the red dragon! But there are alot of close seconds. And the service is great! So friendly. I love coming here.

Another great Saturday lunch! We drive from Salmon Arm just to go here. So glad they are open for Saturday lunch now. Excellent quality and service with fair prices. The Coconut green tea tiramisu is to die for!

I'm told this place is a little more expensive than others, but honestly the quality is worth every dollar. If you don't like fish, that's fine! They have an awesome selection of vegetarian rolls. Worth checking out!
