“Sam makes the best sushi in town”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

It's just a little take-out place on Comox Avenue with a few tables, but Sam and the gang make the best sushi in the Valley. Awesome dynamite rolls, fresh nigiri, innovative and traditional flavours, and plenty of options. Plan ahead because they are always busy. A great picnic option - pick up an order and head down to the marina park.

“Fresh and artfully done!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Sam's sushi is just delicious and fresh! Service is excellent, and the place is very popular so a bit crowded.

The sushi is fantastic and the service was great. The staff are very friendly. The food takes a while but it's worth the wait. I'll be coming back!

“Not just for Takeout”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We discovered this small takeout Japanese restaurant during a brief visit to Comox. Practically squeezed between fancier establishments, Sushi Kobo looked like a good place to have some freshly cooked Japanese food. Many people were walking in and picking up their takeout orders, greeted by the staff with a nice familiarity. We saw two small tables inside, and 2 tables on the sidewalk, so the "takeout" became an "eat in" for us. Four people were actively sharing a small kitchen open to the tables area, and a young woman at the counter was taking orders and explaining the immense wall menus to the uninitiated. We had some familiar and some not so familiar treats: seafood gyoza, Valley rolls and a rich seafood salad. Everything was made fresh, very tasty, and served with a smile. As we were obviously new clients, we were asked whether everything was all right. Yes, everything was very much all right. Excellent food at very reasonable prices.

“The Friendliest TASTIEST sushi restaurant in town!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Our family has been going to Sushi Kobo for years. They are always super friendly and accommodating. The prices and quality are 2nd to none. This is BY FAR the best sushi restaurant in the Comox Valley, possibly all of BC. If you are thinking of eating Japanese food today, you have found the right place!
