“Great food”

If you like Sushi or Sashimi
You will enjoy this place. The waitress was good too although she could have had a little more aloha spirit. overall though great place.

“Great place to eat, outstanding service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

Located in Queen's Market mall, this restaurant has an extensive menu, full bar and beautiful ambiance. We started dinner with a brand-name cocktail each and we could TASTE the alcohol which to me is a sure sign of a good drink - I like a sturdy drink. We shared the shrimp dazzlers (?) appetizer - similar to honey walnut shrimp except with zip - which were delicious. Husband went for jerk chicken, quite good. They offered a plate of a small lobster tail and a spicy crab cake with a small portion of buttered linguine - which was perfect for someone like me who doesn't like to get stuffed at meals. They also offer the same foods in a larger portion for a larger price - which I thought was wonderful. We did a small dish of sorbet for dessert and it was perfect. Further, our waitress was thoroughly knowledgeable about every item on the menu and kept track of lots of tables at once - she was a gem. Highly recommend this place.

“Great time as expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

I have heard good things about this place and was not disappointed. We did not manage to time our visit for one of the discounts. My son thought the prices were a bit high, but i think they were reasonable for a resort area. 3 of us had sushi and found it very tasty. My wife does not eat raw fish, so she had the chicken and she thought that was very good.

Wheel of Fortune was filming at the Hilton that week, and Vanna White and Pat Sajak came in half way though our dinner. Good food and celebrity sightings, does not get much better than that.
