When in Fernie you must have a meal here. There was a big line up but for a table for two, the 40 mins that was advised ended up only being 10 mins. Fantastic array of Japanese dishes, including some with a twist. Kazan rolls...More

Busy, yummy and friendly. Great menu, quality food, fun atmosphere. Loud and full of young people. Strong tasty drinks, well priced. Value. Try and go early or a bit later. Full restaurant. Worth it. Don't go for an intimate dinner.

Had a few families and kids and they sat us in the back room. The food was awesome and well priced. And the server was great as well. Very professional, quick and organized. Very impressed with the whole meal and experience.

They don't take reservations. Either get there for opening at 5:00 or second seating which runs around 6:30 which is what we usually do
