“Skip it and head over to Blufish”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2011

The menu selection was small. What we ordered was decent but not nearly as good as it needed to be for the price. If you want to eat sushi in downtown Winnipeg go to Blufish.

“Terrible everything. Stay away.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2010

This place looked nice when we arrived. That was where it ended. It took 20 minutes for the waitress to take our order. Then, 45 minutes later we still hadn't received our food. Our friends on another table, who ordered after us, already had their sushi. Our waitress told us it was taking a long time because they had to make more sushi rice.

After about an hour, our friends on the other table got their SECOND order of sushi, we hadn't even received our first order. We finally got some Sushi, an hour and 5 minutes after ordering. And it wasn't even our order. A few minutes later, the waitress returned with our order, the sushi was mediocre at best, and the portions were tiny.

Not worth the expensive prices, certainly not worth the hour and a half wait. This is truly the worst service I have ever received in a restaurant.

“old school sushi”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2010

The restaurant was not busy and it took 45 minutes to get my tempera order. I asked our server why it's taking so long, and she told me she have asked the kitchen to start my order but they won't saying that it is too fast and wait until 35 minutes later then they will start making it so it ended up taking 45 min total.

The menu doesn't have any update rolls, everything are just basic stuff and very over priced not to mention super small pieces. My dinner (sushi sashimi) also took 45 minutes!!!

I regret coming here and wasting my time.

“Still the best after more than 20 years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2009

We visited this restaurant shortly after they opened. Over the years we have learned to just sit at the sushi bar and try some new things each time. Of course you have to have one of the stand-bys (like tuna/avocado/grapefruit salad or the warm spinach salad) to start. Also the kitchen offers the best tempura we have had regardless where we travel.
The sushi is more traditional than some of the newer establishments as the owner/chef trained in Tokyo. In fact at one time just about every sushi chef in Winnipeg had worked at Edohei at one time to better learn their trade. but he is also always trying something new and different if you just ask.
Unlike some other places nothing is prepared in advance and just cut when you order it so watching the making of teh sushi is more enjoyable.
For those not into sushi some of the standard dishes offered elsewhere are offered here as well and when we sometimes take guests with us they certainly enjoy the beef yakiniku, pork tonkatsu, or chicken yakitori.

“Okay, but nothing special”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2009

I went with a friend, hearing it was great and expecting something spectacular... it was meh. The portions were so small therefore overpriced, taste was okay, nothing really memorable. We left still hungry. I still prefer Sushi King in St. V.
