“A Gem in Comox”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

We all know Vancouver Island has great seafood, so not having any would be a crime. I am on holiday here and fancied some sushi for the night. Tripadvisor has very good review for this place.

This tiny restaurant is located in a corner of a small mall, opposite to Tim Horton. There is no big sign near the entrance like other places, so if you do not know about it, you might not be able to find it. A GPS would help.

The menu has a lots of item, but we opted for the dinner specials,

Combo A - California Roll, a Tempura Roll, one piece of Salmon Nigiri Sushi, one piece of Tuna Nigiri Sushi, and a miso soup, all for a grand total of $11.

Combo B - A Bad Boy Roll (Fried Roll with Tempura inside, with Teriyaki Sauce) 4 pieces of Tuna Rolls, 4 pieces of Salmon Roll, and one Tempura Handroll, all for $14 and miso soup.

The Appetizer Sashimi comprise of 3 pieces of wild salmon and 3 pieces of tuna, all fresh and plated beautifully.

I don't live in Comox, otherwise I would be a regular.

“Excellent flavors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

A friend introduced my husband and I to this restaurant, and even though we have tried other sushi restaurants in the past, this is now the only place we have been in months. We love the lunch combo, and over time this menu item has become our usual. Any other menu items we have tried have always tasted fresh and flavorful, so it is always easy to pick when we feel up for something new. The restaurant only has a few tables, but the spacing and decorations provide a welcoming and relaxing feeling. The music is different each time we have been there, and it is always interesting to find out what they will play next. I have never eaten out so often before in my life, but now I am always looking forward to the opportunity to go back and enjoy another meal!

“A gem tucked away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

We have never been disappointed. Have ordered takeout and tonight we sat down for dinner inside. Food is delicious. Fresh. Tasty. Hot. Service was quick and our server very gracious and attentive. Decor simple and restful to the eye. Tucked away in a corner at Guthrie and Anderton. Look for it!
