My guest is gluten intolerant, but upon enquiring of our server, she was well informed of all items with suggestions and substitutions; then, when our food arrived, it was all so excellent- mine and the gf.

This is one of the best restaurants in Campbell River, and is absolutely the best Japanese you'll find in town. It's small, so you might have to wait for a table because it's justifiably popular. Lovely fresh sushi and authentic hot dishes. Definitely worth a visit.

Have been here many times and our kids go there too. Wonderful food! The restaurant could use an expansion as it is so popular and not too much room when they are busy.

The salmon rolls were among the best sushi we've ever eaten, seaweed salad was excellent, nigiri was average, warm sake quite nice. Service took a while to get organized on a busy night but wound up being good. Setting in a strip mall and lack of any effort to create appealing visuals are uninviting.

Best sushi in Campbell River. By a mile. None of the western sushi were used to seeing, here is real authentic Japanese sushi. A must for sushi lovers.

The best sushi/Japanese food place in town. It's not cheap but the food is really good. Volcano rolls, dynamite rolls and spicy grilled tuna are all recommended.

this is the best sushi in Campbell river, not the largest portions or the cheapest price, but the best sushi, and sushi is about the best, the upper level items like torro are delicious and well served.
