Arriving in Revelstoke after a very long bus trip this was the first stop for some dinner. I'd heard lots about this place as my good friend had previously worked here. I can only say I wish Kawakubo was closer to home as I'd fast become a regular. Fantastic food, well presented! Service was fast and friendly. Place was packed... More

I love this place. It is a local favourite (reservations recommended) and for good reason. Incredible quality and presentation of the food. A gem in a little town where you would not expect to find world-class sushi restaurant.

The rolls were decent. another weird things we found was that the miso soup they use some kind of fish sauce. Now i've been eating miso soup and making it for years and... More

This place is busy...for a good reason. Tasty and fresh tasting seafood, rolls and sashimi. Efficient service. Reasonably priced. Not a big fan of steamed pork dumplings.

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.
