Something to celebrate? Or just looking for the best? This place is the most atmospheric of them all. Great choice of sake and everything fresh prepared. Give them a ring to find out about the drummer performance.

We found ourselves craving sushi during our stay in Revelstoke. This place was a great find! The sushi was delicious, particularly the yam rolls. The atmosphere was pleasant and the staff were friendly. Would recommend!

The food was excellent, the only down side was our service person who was rather sour and unhappy. The food was quality and excellent value for money, so a venue to recommend for sure.

In the interior of BC one does not expect good seafood, let alone Japanese cuisine. Kawakubo exceeds those expectations and serves some very good seafood. Uni is one of those items that's is an indicator of good sourcing and it was very good. The sashimi...More
