I love Asian food.
this place certainly has that. There is good Japanese food with all the regular well prepared sushi and other Japanese favourites.
I had the dynamite roll bento box for about $14 and it is really awesome tasting and even though i have a big appetite, i could barely finish it.

I visited Sehmi for dinner with a friend recently, and once again enjoyed a fabulous meal. We ordered the Sehmi Boat which comes with miso soup, sunomono salad, mixed tempura and a selection of sushi. It usually comes with goyza (dumplings) but when we asked to sub seaweed salad, it was no problem, likewise, there was no problem switching up one of the sushi rolls for a different one from the menu. Everything was delicious, fresh, and attractively presented.

We live in the area, so this is a restaurant we frequent fairly regularly, and we've never had a bad meal. The decor is dated and a mix of styles, but if the food is good - who cares? Wait staff are always friendly, but service can sometimes be a little slow because they usually seem to only have 2 servers on shift, and it can get quite busy.

Prices are reasonable, food is great, service is friendly. It's a great place for lunch or dinner in Port Alberni.

The food is always great, as is the service and the prices are spot on. The decor is tired and dated and mish-mashed. Tropical carpeting, cedar walls and Japanese style decorations. The doors are frequently open and it can get cold in the restaurant.. and flies tend to make their way in the open doors and harass you while you eat.
The place is clean though.. could just use some freshening up!
