This restaurant was phenomenal. We were in Yellowknife for nine days and we ate at Sushi Café 4 times. The menu is extensive and the service was excellent. The butterfish sashimi was snow white and melted in your mouth. The arctic char sashimi was local and tasted so fresh and clean as if caught that morning. The salmon sashimi was... More

The Japanese food was close to what we got in Asia / Japan. We went there twice and ordered tempura each time. My friends did not eat raw fish so we ordered yam tempura roll as recommended by the owner. The fried rice was good also. The teriyaki sauce was a bit sweet and the owner had cautioned us about...

They offer a good selection of Japanese food and also other dishes with rice and noodles. The server/owner is very fast talker with a an accent (I like it better because it shows authenticity of the food served and the ambiance) and very friendly. I will recommend this place for lunch and dinner. Serving is also fast.

They have a fantastic selection and are meticulous about the preparation. The service can sometimes be a bit surly.

I enjoyed the experience over all. Comparing it to the other sushi in town. The sushi cafe had a nice more romantic classy feel to it than the other sushi, they were just as friendly, it tasted good but, we were disappointed with the prices and the size of the menu. They were missing a few items that most sushi... More

Great range of Sushi. Menu a bit complicated to navigate but friendly and prompt service. Nice environment but played strange music. Feels more like a cafe than a restaurant.

Food is ok but pricy, horrible service, keep asking customer to wait even while I am ready to pay. Make me feel like I am begging her for me to pay for my foods. Awful experience. Not Coming back in future.
