Worth the drive from the Comox Valley. I've been twice in the last 2 weeks and I have been happy both times. Food is fresh and perfectly prepared. Beautiful pottery dishes, friendly service, and finally a good drink list. They even have piccolos of sparkling wine! Prices are great too. And...they use real shiso leaves. Even the tempura, you get... More

I've been coming here for years, but the sushi quality was disappointing. The ramen was a great start, but when I was told they didn't have any toro sashimi, I had a bad feeling - good Japanese reastaurants never run out of toro. It's like McDonalds running out of burgers. The raw squid was very tough, which usually means it... More

Food was very good but lacked service. We were a table of six and the food came one plate at a time which was very akward for the rest of the group. They need to organise better service and food should come out together. But apart from the service and wait time I would definitely come back.

My guest is gluten intolerant, but upon enquiring of our server, she was well informed of all items with suggestions and substitutions; then, when our food arrived, it was all so excellent- mine and the gf. I had the soft shell crab- the best and the spicy tempura prawns- also the best, with a shared sushi roll and hot saki... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Campbell River, and is absolutely the best Japanese you'll find in town. It's small, so you might have to wait for a table because it's justifiably popular. Lovely fresh sushi and authentic hot dishes. Definitely worth a visit.

Have been here many times and our kids go there too. Wonderful food! The restaurant could use an expansion as it is so popular and not too much room when they are busy.

The salmon rolls were among the best sushi we've ever eaten, seaweed salad was excellent, nigiri was average, warm sake quite nice. Service took a while to get organized on a busy night but wound up being good. Setting in a strip mall and lack of any effort to create appealing visuals are uninviting.
