“Great food”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Went here with a friend and had the sushi and prawns, which are always fresh and very tasty. The ambience of the restaurant needs work but the food is great!

“nice little spot with eclectic menu”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Very casual place with decent food. Serves mainly sushi but with some common western foods and Thai inspired dishes. The rolls were a bit creative and tasty.

it was a good stop to eat and the service was decent.

“best japanese food”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

This place is a gem, super fresh sushi and sashimi along with several unique dishes created by the chef. We loved the food, and it was also great value for money - having eaten at top japanese restaurants all over the world, this ranks up there with them

“fish & chips are a must here”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

best fish & chips I have ever had. my husband always orders the sushi & raves about how fresh it is. the restaurant could use a good cleaning & upgrade but don't let the looks of the place fool you. all the locals love the food and with good reason.

“Sushi made to perfection”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

While on a day trip we stopped in for a bite to eat at Mai Mai's Bistro in Sooke. One word - AMAZING - would sum up the food. This certainly is the best sushi we've had hands-down, the wonton soup was crazy-good, the service friendly. This is a destination restaurant, not a 'hey, lets give this place a try'... worth the drive from Victoria ... don't miss out on great food!!!
