I had teriyaki chicken, which was so good. I really liked the potatoe that came with it. Also had deep fried veges which were really good! Japanese style seating which was interesting, and the waitress was really nice! Very affordable, and great portions!

My wife and I come here every time we visit Lethbridge. The food is great, and offers the newcomer to Japanese cuisine a great introduction. We opted for the dinner combinations, which offered a nice variety of dishes at a good price. We especially enjoyed the katsu and the teriyaki beef. The miso soup was much appreciated on the cool,...

O-SHO "Japanese Restaurant" oh-really? About as Japanese as a McDonald's Big Mac! If you go to O-Sho and expect the taste and selection of authentic Japanese cusine, you have gone to the wrong place. I seriously doubt if there is even one remotely "Japanese" cook/employee working there. If you are looking for Korean/Chinese food, well I suppose O-Sho will make... More

I can't pin point this restaurant. I have gone in and have had the best service and food, but other times it was a complete miss, with service being very spotty and food being sub par.

The go to spot for Japanese Cuisine in Lethbridge. We choose the traditional rooms in the back. The staff are always friendly, helpful & courteous. We had the tempura prawns, California roll, teriyaki beef, chicken katsu, & chicken fried rice. It was all very fresh & delicious, we left stuffed!

Sat in the traditional Japanese rooms, which offer great atmosphere. I had the teriyaki beef and chicken. Chicken was great, beef was marginal and tasted like it was from a very poor cut. Huge portions for a reasonable price

We've gone to this restaurant for years, about once a year when we are in town. We used to love it, with it's "private" rooms with floor cutouts for sitting on the floor. This time, we were seriously disappointed. We were automatically led to one of these floor sitting rooms, and not offered the option of a regular table. We... More

This is a little gem in Lethbridge. The sushi and rolls are good, and at reasonable price. The service is efficient and friendly.

I went there with a group of eight. We were greeted warmly and didn't wait too long to be seated. It was a Saturday evening. The ambience was nice and the staff were very friendly. We received good service and the food was delicious. If you are not an Asian food fan and only going because the group chooses this... More

First of all it's important to note that if you're looking for some place to fill up on sushi without breaking a $10 bill, you've come to the wrong restaurant. The prices here are more Vancouver-level than small-city Lethbridge. Having said that, the offerings here are of an exceptionally high quality that any sushi place in Richmond would be proud...
