“Great! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014 via mobile

Can not say enough good things about this place! Had a dynamite, scorpion and California roll with a gf order of chicken teriyaki, amazing. Their Caesars (drink) are killer. Good food, great service. Highly recommended.

“Great Little Sushi Place in the Mountains”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

We enjoy great sushi from time to time, and Kawakubo provides that. For a small town like Revelstoke, the sushi compares to quality, price, and value like in Vancouver. Where there are many great Sushi places we have visited, this is the next best thing. I would definitely recommend going, make sure you book a seat, for it tends to be real busy in the winter months. You have to deal with skiers, snowmobilers, and the locals of course.

“Top notch Japanese in a small town!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

Very good fresh food. Their gomae and agadashu tofu are to die for! Very creative sushi. The dragon roll is our favourite. One of our favourite spots for a special occasion.

“Great for a big group.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

The food, service and atmosphere are all very good. There are two private rooms upstairs that are ideal for a big group. I will definitely go back.

“Great fresh sushi in small town Rev!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

I'm from Seattle, where we are spoiled by great fresh sushi and fish. I tried this restaurant at the suggestion of multiple locals but I was still a little nervous. It definitely exceeded my expectations! We had a few appetizers, nigiri, sushi and house rolls. All were terrific. Definitely make a reservation as it was packed.
