We were told the sushi was fresh off the boat downstairs, and it tasted like it! My husband doesn't eat sushi, so he had a Caesar salad and raved about it. He wanted to go back the next day, but we had other restaurants to try....

Went there with two sushi loving teens. Waited 15 minutes for any service after being told they were expecting a big group in an hour and may need our table. After we placed our order we waited 20 min while watching others around us get served even tho they came in after us. I'd have to say that given the ocean at their doorstep, the fish simply wasn't fresh. Not bad but not great and about $1 over priced for each piece.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Tough City. Locals in the hardware store directed us how to get there, loudly proclaiming how great the food is, and how awesome the owner. From the moment we walked in, the staff were friendly and welcoming. Our waitress made us special lime sake margaritas, and helped us with our meal choices. The agedashi tofu and gomae salad were beautifully presented and delicious. Our rolls were well made, great portions and very filling. All this, plus a table on the patio to enjoy the view. We watched boats, kayakers and even a seal!

Sushi was terrific by what the others in our group said, but if you want something other than sushi, you are pretty much out of luck. I had Caesar Salad with chicken and it was good, but they need to expand menu for non sushi fans. Drinks were great.

Me and some friends went out to this restaurant a couple of times while we were in Tofino. The sushi was fresh and flavourful. The california rolls with dungeness crab were superb. My friend really enjoyed the maki platter.
