Nice dinner out, the sashimi and tempura were great! The decor was cute and I wasn't expecting to find a place like this hiding in downtown Saskatoon.

After being seated we were immediately greeted by a miserable waitress who treated us like second class citizens. She seemed genuinely upset that she had to wait on us. After ordering one of the chairs broke (under our pregnant sister in law) and she made a huge scene. She flipped the chair over (violently slammed it down) and commenced to... More

I order from here every time I'm in Saskatoon. Absolutely love it. Love that they deliver right to my hotel room! Excellent quality, but a little on the pricey side. Will continue to order from there.

Do not let the out dated decor fool you. This place has great food and sake! The staff are all friendly and are quick for service. It is quite expensive but if you want the best sushi you gotta come here. It's always fresh and always delicious.

This is the only place I will have sushi in the prairies. It is always fresh and delicious. I love the spicy tuna roll and the salmon sashimi.
