Brave the rather garish signboarding and unpromising exterior to get inside this place. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, we had good food reasonably quickly delivered, and all at good value for money. Having had a really good meal we went back there again a week later and were remembered - impressive.

The atmosphere is comfortable and they have two Tatami rooms. There is great value in their lunch Bento Box. I used to love the Sukiyaki here, but not on the menu any longer :(. Service is always prompt and quality of food very good.

My fiancé and I love sushi do we had to try sushi in Whitehorse during our road trip up north. We were very impressed. Food was very tasty! One of the best dynamite rolls I've ever had. Fresh crunchy deep fried prawns, I could feel the heat off that roll as soon as it arrived. They even put asparagus in... More

Very nice atmosphere, with good prices for the amount of food you get. This is a great place for couples that are looking to get something other than just a burger place. Great service with interesting adventure choices available.

This ho hum restaurant so nicely decorated puts out some pretty poor food. The sushi better from the take out counter at your local supermarket. Other dishes, yakisoba, teriyaki, doms are pretty tasteless. You can do better whipping them up in your own kitchen. On multiple visits we have found the staff less than friendly. The restaurant has recently changed... More

Having tried a different sushi restaurant in town and not having a great experience, we were a little hesitant to try this one. However, we quickly relaxed when we walked in and saw a beautiful interior and friendly staff. (The outside of the building is deceiving.) When I opened the menu, I knew this would be a better experience. It... More

I came in late and they were about to close. The owner and staff were kind enough to make me a Togo box. She also recommended a place close by to stay that was comfortable and affordable. The food was great so I came back for some more.

As first time visitors to Whitehorse, we were told by our hosts that this was a good restaurant for Japanese food. We were not disappointed. Although the exterior (and the entire street!) wasn't inviting, once inside we did like the atmosphere. The servers were friendly and service was quick. The udon with delicate broth was delicious! My husband had the... More

We were greeted at the door by friendly, helpful staff, seated promptly and had our orders taken within 10 minutes. We ordered the Beef Yakisoba, it was a little milder than usual but all in all, the best I've had in Whitehorse. The staff is highlight of this place. We also received 20% off for eating in on a Tuesday.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our tour guide since few places were open on Sunday. The pan fried dumplings were good. My tempera was fine. It came with Beef Teriyaki. There was a lot of sauce at the bottom of the hot sizzling plate...it was a bit too much for me. The staff was very friendly and they... More
