At the Namao Centre the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. For a first time visit tried the avocado maki, on a recommendation from a diner, as well as the rainbow maki, which icluded salmon and tuna. Also tried the spider roll, soft shell crab. All were good, but not outstanding. The wasabi sauce was excellent and the pickled ginger good. Had heard about their sesame sauce, tried it at home, it was tasty, but salty. Would order their teriyaki next time as it sounds very good.

My former co-workers and I used to hit Mt Fuji at least once (sometimes twice) a week for lunch.

First off, let me inform you that I'm in no way a connoisseur of Japanese food and I have no idea if they serve up genuine Japanese cuisine or if it's quickly thrown together slop to sell to gullible westerners...like myself. Also I'm not a sushi guy so I can't help you with a recommendation there.

My favourite is their Teppan-yaki Beef and Chicken meal. It's just Teriyaki beef and chicken with steamed rice and vegetables but it's damn good. The food is always fresh, moist, and hot off the grill. It's better than the rice bowls you can get at Tokyo Express. TE's food is often dry and they're stingy with the meat. Mt. Fuji's meat-to-veggie ratio is about even and their portions are a fair size.

The only real downside to Mt. Fuji is the long lines and wait times during the lunch rush. It's often lined up outside the door (literally) and the place is stuffed inside...with soldiers and police officers. They're right next door to a police station and CFB Edmonton is few clicks down the road. This is probably the safest eating establishment in the city. So if security is a major concern of yours while you're eating your lunch then this place is for you. Because of the crowds I would suggest phoning in your lunch order as opposed to just showing up. It will go a lot quicker that way. If you plan on eating your food there, good luck finding a table. The establishment is too small for the amount of clientele that show up there. At least during the noon hour.

Oh yeah, they have one of those annoying debit machines that prompts you to tip before you pay for your meal. They have no wait staff there. Why would I want to tip the counter chick for taking my order and calling out my number five minutes later? Change the settings on your debit machine, Mt. Fuji people. Not that you're reading this since you remain unclaimed on Yelp!
