This is a really fine sushi restaurant. Very high quality fish and pleasant surroundings. Surprising to find such good sushi and sashimi in Revelstoke. For my money the best restaurant in town.

Craving sushi after a long day at Revvie, we made a reso at Kawakubo after others recommended it. When we arrived, we thought it was really weird how dark it was... turns out, there was a pretty large power outage in the area. We were surprised they offered to seat us anyway, and the meal did not disappoint! The sushi... More

Awesome sushi, unique cozy environment, friendly fun staff - a must visit for sushi lovers. We did not have a reservation and they worked hard to carve out a spot at the sushi bar but would recommend calling ahead if you would like one of the unique booths or a favorite spot at the sushi bar, they will reserve a...

This is one of our favourite Revelstoke restaurants when dining with a group. Very good food and service at a reasonable price. It's a very casual restaurant, in an old building - can be cold in mid winter. There are 3 private dining rooms for groups upstairs. The chef was happy to cater for the various dietary requirements of our... More

I have eaten here a number of times and it's never disappointing. The servers are friendly and attentive and the food is fast and amazing. Whether you are getting sushi rolls, teriyaki or donburi, you can tell they take pride in what they do. I would recommend for anyone!
