“More than sushi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2013

Japanese food is not only sushi, but tempra, katsudon more and more. This is the place you want to visit to have those in this town.
Do not compare quality with Authentic Japanese one, but still rice is soft and proper dishes. Price is averagely high, that I cannot complain in this town, so one a season I may be back.

“Went twice and still good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

I'm not saying this restaurant is super outstanding, but for being in Yellowknife, this is a pretty good Japanese restaurant. Service was good, and the waitress was polite. Food is average, but then again, being in YK, I would give it the very good rating. The price is not cheap, but so are everything else here in YK. Don't get your hopes way high up there, and you'll enjoy this restaurant.

“Sushi Delivered!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2013

This is the second sushi restaurant to open in Yellowknife. I do not know if the chef is Japanese, I suspect not. Does it matter? I've found that Chinese sushi tends to be oilier and not as refined. I ordered a few rolls and the arctic char sashimi. The rolls were okay although they were on the small side. The sashimi was a small fillet of char that was cut into chunks. Normally I wouldn't complain about getting more food, but eating a chunk of raw fish versus a slice does affect the flavour profile. I don't recommend the arctic char sashimi here. The other sushi place in Yellowknife does it better.
It was rather pricey. For 2 rolls and the sashimi, it came to $40. They add $2 for delivery and then there is a "tip request" when I paid by credit card.
However this place does deliver and will satisfy your mid-winter sushi cravings.

“Never make an order, they lie with the time of delivery!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2013

I called them to make an order and after asking them how long it takes to deliver (3 times), they promise me 45 min maximum, after 1:45 MINUTES and 3 calls to them, my food arrived.
Also the food was terrible. I don't recommend it at all.

“Great atmosphere & Sushi - for the North”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2012

We've eaten here a few times and all times were very pleased. It is a reasonable price, good portions, and tastes good - for the North. Wasabi has a bit of a kick here!
