“A Surprise for Strip Mall Sushi Place”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

The location is not incredible but the service was. The cost is in line with good sushi places and the service made it worthwhile.
There were 4 of us and we spent quite a bit but ate a lot of sushi and sashimi because the fish was so good. They provided us with a free appetizer without any request, which was very nice. The lady serving us was attentive, friendly, helpful but never intrusive.
I would definitely go back if I am back in Surrey.

The ambiance here is great with high ceilings and very authentic feel. The food is average and the price is ok.

“Great sushi, in my neighbourhood”
Reviewed September 29, 2011

Have dined in and done take out. Sushi is the best in surrey and their cones are fabulous. You won't be disappointed if you dine here. Most of the time they bring you a little free appy before your order comes. Nice touch.

“Nice little Sushi place”
Reviewed August 25, 2011

I'll say, I don't think it's the best sushi in the world, but for the price, it's a great little place in Surrey. The staff is friendly and the kitchen is right there in the middle of the restaurant. Great atmosphere.

“Favorite Sushi Spot”
Reviewed November 16, 2010

This is a great family run sushi spot. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff (particularly the husband and wife owners) and beautifully presented yummy food. A little pricey but worth it in my opinion.
