“Holy Sashimi....”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Best fresh and clean sushi...yet stuck in a chinese food restaurant. We got a booth and closed the doors and had the sake hot. Every single roll was off the charts good. The sashimi was to die for. The four of us were very pleased with our time and money spent. Very good food but where it was lacking was the atmospere. Its the only reason why it gets a 4 star rating.

“Best Sushi I have tatsted in Western Canada”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

While it looks and is a Chinese restaurant, the place has a sushi bar tucked into the corner. Excellent Japanese chef will prepare custom sushi. Every bite is fresh and flavourful.

“Sushi is the Best- across from Casino”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

If you are looking for a great experience and outstanding sushi, I would recommend the Oriental Gardens Sushi Bar. Try the spicy tuna dish. It isn't on the menu but Hartman will ensure you will be happy. We always have the chefs special with tempura prawns. Best we have found in BC.

“What a surprise!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

It just goes to show how you can have an opinion which it totally unfounded. We are staying in the Hotel 540 , just across the street and we decided we would rather eat away from the hotel, but within walking distance. There was no menu on the door but we decided to give it a try anyway. From walking in we were surprised by the décor in the restaurant which is interesting and unusual, excellent friendly and quick service, but most of all by the quality of our food.
It was simple, fresh and beautifully cooked. The cheapest and best meal we have had in Canada so far and when we were least expecting it.

“Just what we needed”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

Right across the road from the Hotel 540. We did not fancy steak or fries or pizza/pasta just wanted something light with flavour. We had the Chinese Combo for $16 and some fried rice. The dish was plenty for two (uk portions) and reasonable in price. Staff were really helpful restaurant was clean and not too busy. We felt well looked after. We were not rushed or hurried in any way and were asked if the meal was ok. The combo had four dishes in it, sweet n sour pork, chicken chow me in, beef and ginger and deep fried prawns. No substitutes allowed but it just hit the spot for us.
