There is no doubt that Sushi Q battles Momo Sushi for the title of the best sushi in West Kelowna and there are some who give the nod to Q on one neta and to Momo on another as the shari seems to be a toss-up. You can sum it up by saying that you can't go wrong between Q and Momo when it comes to the food.
However... Sushi Q is a very strange place. Not only is it like an uncomfortable number of independent West Kelowna restaurants stuck in a '60s time warp, but it's just "industrial cafeteria" with a couple of sushi posters on the wall. The place is not exactly spotless clean, and the bargain-basement fixtures, decor, tables, chairs, etc. scream greasy spoon way more than they say: sushi. The dim lighting is not "atmospheric," it's a couple of old, dusty fluorescent tubes in the ceiling. I wonder how the chef even manages to see what he's doing given that he's laboring under a very dim light.
I did experience something that I have never seen in well over 4 decades of dining at every restaurant level between 3-star Michelin and Dive. Behind the counter an older Japanese lady was fast asleep sitting up... and this was very early in the evening. The cashier just walked around her like she was a piece of furniture. So I guess it was considered normal for the staff to go to sleep in the dining room during service. Very strange!
If you really do have to pass up Momo for Q, then order the sushi for takeout and leave quickly before the really bad parts of this place like the icky decor and sleeping staff really turn you off!
