“Great sushi !!!”
Reviewed 9 June 2012

Well I was not expecting too much....sushi in Fernie?

The food was wonderful and the selection was broad. You can also find dumplings, tempura, stir fry and all the dishes i saw and ate were good. It may be a little over priced but it is busy for a reason.

“How does this have such great reviews??”
Reviewed 14 April 2012 via mobile

I came to this restaurant because of the great reviews and I was extremely disappointed. By far the worst sushi I've ever had and I'm not alone. The friend I went with also agreed. It tasted like they spilled a big jar of salt in the rice. I came hungry and couldn't even finish what was on my plate.

But it wasn't just the sushi... We also ordered sunomono salad and gyoza. How can a restaurant screw up gyoza? There is better gyoza from the frozen isle of Safeway.

I paid $25 for 8 pieces of disgusting sushi and overly vinegared sunomono salad. Would not even give this place a 2nd try regardless of the reviews. Go elsewhere and save some money.

“Japanese at it's best”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

Ordered a large selection of dishes all of which were excellent. Go for some of the fusion sushi dishes they are delicious. A very busy vibrant atmosphere and the service is outstanding. Have traditional Japanese booths as well, probably best to reserve one if you want one.

“fantastic sushi”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

You might have to wait as this place isn't huge but it's worth the wait. Nice energetic vibe, great sushi and pretty good value to boot.
