“Just average”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

We went as a family and was underwhelmed after hearing such a good buzz. We eat Japanese often at home so know a thing or two. The shumai tasted funny, they were out of ahi tuna and the substituted albacore was bland, the don buri rice bowl was tasteless . The staff was quite nice and the ice cream fine but altogether we would not recommend .

Probably the best Sushi I have ever had!
We had just visited the Revelstoke Dam and one kind lady there recommended this for a better place to eat.
I'm sorry i have forgotten your name but THANK YOU...
We ate early as we had not booked... but by the time we finished it was jammed..
Not the cheapest place I have ever eaten but it's a place you would never ever expect to find here...fantastic selection of food, fantastic serving staff and true diamond in a field of ruff.

“For sushi/sushimi lovers”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

If you like sushi or sushimi, don't miss this one. Quiet, great service, and wonderful selections that don't break the bank! We enjoyed edamame, rice noodle salad with octopus, and a selection of very tasty sushimi.

“Surprisingly Good !”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

To be fair my expectations were low. Sushi in Revelstoke ?? But the sushi here was comparable with the type of sushi I have had in the annex in Toronto, the fish seemed fresh, our service was good, and our kids made welcome. It is right across from the Regent hotel so if you are there just walk across the street. Sushi anywhere in the world is not cheap, and there are certainly alot cheaper meals you can have in Revelstoke, but we enjoyed our meal and would recommend to others.
