“Classy Sushi Experience”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

If you want sushi at a restaurant, this is the place to go. Atmosphere is good. Nice lighting, music, well furnished. It's definitely a good sit down meal. You pay more for the atmosphere. If you want takeaway head to Masa Yama down the street.

“Response to negative review " illegal foreign worker activity"”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Benjaminmon,

I just wanted to let you know that I was completely disgusted with your review written for the Blue Fin Sushi Bar. I'm guessing your someone who got fired or asked to leave for some reason or another. What you wrote was SO FAR FROM THE TRUTH its obvious to be slander and completely inappropriate. If you personally knew the business owner you would know that this women works 6 days a week and is there all day and evening graciously greeting her customers and showing them appreciation for their business, Personally delivering food to local merchants who can't leave there place of work, giving back to the community and so much more I could go ON AND ON.. In regards to staff... her staff members LOVE her! She is currently renting an apartment from my husband and I for two of her employees that are from the Philippines, here on a working program.. SHE PAYS THEIR RENT!!! After the hugest devastation to their home land, She took it upon herself to help them raise money and SEND THEM BACK on her own expenses so they could bring the help raised to their families.. Judge her for immigrant workers??? Do you own a business in the service industry??? It is so hard to find people to work, train them and to rely on them to even show up for shifts. She has local employees that work their butts off with those she has here on a program. If you wanna work, work, if you are ignorant to a situation, ask questions!! I'd be happy to answer some for you. Long story short, SHAME ON YOU for writing such bull on a hard working persons business that is actually five star and exceptional for food, service and atmosphere.

“Fresh, Fast and DELICIOUS!!”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

I have been a regular diner at the Blue Fin Sushi Bar in both Terrace and Smithers for many years. Iknow the owner to be a highly professional, friendly and extremely hard working individual who has great rapport with her staff and treats them all with respect. Not only does she respect her staff but often treats them to pizza and refreshments after a busy night, helps them out with personal loans, flies them to see their families and is always concerned about their happiness and well being. When the Phillipines was hit by a devastaing earthquake in 2013, one of the hardest hit areas was the home town of one of the employees. The owner (Cindy) took it upon herself to spearhead a fundraising campaign ultimatley sending that employee home with thousands of dollars to help his village. The slanderous review written earlier depicting Cindy as a "slum lord" is a delusional fabrication that I suspect was put together for the sole purpose of assasinating the character of an extremly hard working, compassionate person who deserves nothing but praise, respect and admiration. Shame on you.

“Fresh and Tasty”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Great menu with very fresh sushi, servers are very knowledgeable and sensitive to food allergies.
The Terrace location is equally good!
