Service was friendly. Food was good but a bit more expensive than other places for sushi in town. We sat in the back where they have a private room for small groups.

I enjoyed this small restaurant that has a huge family history. Its sometimes missed but when you go in it's definitely a place you will always go back to. Made fresh.

My friend brought me here in June 2016, she had been to all the Japanese restaurants in Vernon and claims this is the best! She wasn't wrong, the service was friendly, and we were told they were busy so there would be a slight wait for food, but the Ramen came out in a massive serving and was very authentic.... More

This is the best sushi I have ever eaten! I keep coming back all the way from kelowna! The food is always fresh, and served quickly. The prices are fantastic and incredibly reasonable for the portions that are given. Would definitely recommend to the avid sushi lover, or the first timer.

I love this place. If you want authentic Japanese food this is the place to go. In my opinion the best dishes are the assorted tempura (broccoli, sweet potato, potato, shrimp), the sunomono salad (shrimp, rice noodles, seaweed) and the tekka don (raw tuna, rice and vegetables). If you are in a rush or want a nice meal, this is... More

Fish is fresh, rice is fantastic. Favourite rolls are spicy tuna, BC, and Crazy Salmon! (Crazy Salmon is not on the menu). Service here is exceptional!

This small and fairly unpretentious place on Vernon's main drag was packed to the gills but when the food arrived I was left to wonder why. Rice is overcooked and oversalty, the knife work is clunky and the fish is supermarket standard, certainly well below sushi grade. What I simply cannot comprehend is why the owner of this place has... More

Louisiana-style entree was fabulous! Classical sushi is top-notch! All in all, this place is nice, and casual, and not terribly over-priced. Unpretentious and very friendly staff makes for a pleasant experience.

We've been going to Mahoroba for several years - great little sushi place, with good atmosphere, and pleasant staff. Have to reserve ahead on weekends.
