Went here on an overnight stay in Fernie. Was about a half hour wait for a couple, but there were tables where we could have a drink while we waited. Got the kimchi, which was nice and quite spicy, and the Yamagoya Black, which included better than most miso, a number of specialties and some nigiri and sashimi. Also included... More

Really good sushi! The service was great. It was very busy, so expect a wait. I would recommend the curry roll and the tempura tuna roll!

This place is packed out most nights. While you can't book, I'd definitely advise turning up early else you'll be waiting a while to get seated. The queue is well justified. The food is fantastic with a great selection. I normally go for the Yamagoya Black for its value. It has a great cross-section of everything on the menu.

We love our sushi! It is a weekly staple in our lives. Thus, we have eaten it around the world including multiple times in Japan. Overall, this place pretty good, especially for a small town like Fernie. Fish was pretty fresh, no complaints on the six different dishes. Sushi and rolls were overloaded with rice. Good to fill you up.... More

Good and quality food -just don't be in a hurry. Small quarters and made to order food means the time from order to table may be longer than average. Friendly staff and fresh and flavorful food.

I've been privileged to enjoy sushi in some of the finest spots around the continent (including Sushi Ran in Sausalito) and Yamagoya ranks right up there. The West Fernie roll (beef) and the Lobster roll, for example, combine great tastes and textures. Nothing bland or average here, even a decent beer selection. Be prepared for a line up on weekends...

Great sushi, in a nice old house. Good size patio for those hot summer nights. This is a busy spot on the main street on Fernie and for anyone who loves sushi it is a must. They make some very good, very spicy, and unique rolls. The beef tataki had some great dried garlic and was served deconstructed, which I... More
