Well, went and odered sushi from Opa... this time around tasted a bit better.... They need to learn how to roll sushi. Had this ordered for take out.

Loved the sushi - fresh, delicious and would definitely come back again. It was my first time trying tuna sashimi as well and not the last

Opa Sushi was definitely something of a surprise. It is located in the heart of the tourist district of Prince Rupert (i.e.: Cow Bay), above some tourist shops in an old net loft.

I have been totally ruined by Opa, it is without a doubt the best Japanese restaurant on the west coast. If you like sashimi go for the large mixed platter which is a great taster ad has all sorts of treats including razor clams, scallops, sockeye salmon and tuna.

The fish melts in your mouth. The green tea ice cream is SOOOOO GOOOOOD. The service is awesome! Honestly, I've had such a bunch of times in Vancouver and the sushi here is incomparably better. I really love this place and we're blessed to have a place like this here.

All very fresh. Beautifully prepared. Great service. We had the large sashimi selection on a plank. We're from Hawaii where sushi is the best.

Busy little restaurant in a lovely building. Inside is small and looks quite 'raw or basic'. Food very good though! Tasty speciality rolls and friendly service.
