“It isn't Japan”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2011

A wierd decorating combo of western tables in japanese style eating "rooms". That is the ambience in Powell River's only sit down Japanese style restaurant. The food is alright but nothing remarkable. It is not as good as the take out place down by the ferry dock. Too much tempura! Service is ok but rather brisk and not personable. I expect more in a Japanese restaurant. The prices are slightly out of line for the quality. Unimaginative food.

“Tasty food, friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2011

A little on the expensive side, but considering this isn't Vancouver (you have to take 2 ferries to get here after all), the prices are reasonable. The food is very good. I regularly order sushi rolls to go and have always found them to be very fresh and tasty. Occasionally I eat in, usually getting sushi, but the time I tried the Chicken Teriyaki I was very impressed. Their Seafood Salad is amazing. It's true that the portions aren't huge, but I've never left hungry. The restaurant has a number of private tables, which is kinda fun, and makes a nice atmosphere for a romantic dinner or for taking out of town guests.

“Expensive and flat taste!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2011

I consider myself a connaisseur when it comes to sushis as I love them very much. I was escited to try this place but was very disappointed. I had the lunchbox and would have needed at leat 2 to fill me up! Other sushi places in Vancouver have lunchboxes twice fuller for half the price. On top of this, the food was very flat tasting, like the fish had been previously frozen. Too bad, won't come back!!!

“Great dining experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2009

I happened to read a review for a Powell River hotel that included a comment about the town having no good restaurants. If you are in the area and looking for a great meal, try Minato Sushi. The service and food are both excellent and the tables are all screened off from one another which can make for an intimate dining experience. On previous visits, we've had the tempura, teriyaki, edamame, gyoza, and sushi rolls, among others. It's not cheap, but it is very, very good.
