Location is just as you enter Port Alberni on the left side of the road. All of the food was excellent, fresh and tasty, reasonable prices.

I stopped for lunch today with a friend who'd been there before - it certainly doesn't look like a sushi restaurant from the road. It's a bit dark inside, too. However, the food was delicious! They had a great selection of lunch specials, and a full menu as well. Lots of food for reasonable prices, and lovely presentation. Our server... More

I like this place. The food is good and we have never had any trouble with the serving staff. I would recommend it to anyone.

Quite atmosphere, great food! My all-time favourite is their amazing salmon roll. Crispy on the outside, flavourful, succulent salmon inside. I usually order the sauces on the side, or with just teriyaki on top. A great starter if you bring a friend...if you can share....or a small meal for one. Have yet to find a crispy roll that compares since... More

Someone introduced me to this restaurant since I recently moved to Port a month ago. I have eaten there (take out) twice now and I must say I LOVE that they have soy wraps!! I have had the California Rolls with soy wraps as well as Deep Fried Dynamite Rolls (with soy and with seaweed) and have thoroughly enjoyed them!... More

Been here a few times now and it's always been super fresh and tasty. Great bento box at a great price. Best sushi on the island and I have tried lots of them.

Almost drove past this restaurant as it's hidden in an old motel and looks like anything but a japanese restaurant, but I'm certainly glad that we stopped in and tried it. The seaweed salad was delicious and plentiful for the price. The Tuna nigiri tasted so fresh and melted in our mouths like butter. The Double Dynamite roll was delicious... More

How can it be that sushi tastes stale? This restaurant mastered it somehow. Lettuce and mayo in a yam tempura roll to top it all off?? Outrageous. Overpriced for a outdated place that you have to call back again and again to place an order because they are too cheap to get seperate phone lines for payment method and incoming... More

I have been visiting Port Alberni, where we have had a project at Great Central Lake for years, but never found a great restaurant. Someone recommended this restaurant and on driving up, I nearly kept going, but on entering I was very pleasantly surprised, the interior décor was better than the exterior and was soon to learn that the look...
