Discovered this place while driving through Revelstoke as my wife had a rice craving and what a great find! They were just closing for the afternoon as it was 2 pm but they let us order takeout and I was surprised to find that they only served wild salmon! This is something that many of the cheap sushi places in Vancouver could learn from! The Combo 7 nigiri sushi was excellent as was the agedashi tofu. And they included miso soup and a salad in our order no extra charge! They were also sensitive of my sesame allergy and my wife's allergy to eggs & wheat (hence no soy sauce). The friendly staff also brought the food out to us in the car as we were looking after our restless 10 month old son. I will definitely hit up this place next time I'm in town and would highly recommend it. Locals should appreciate having such a great sushi place in such a small town!

The Kawakubo is a world class restaurant in a beautiful, exciting town. We had and shared a California roll with spicy salmon, tempura shrimp, and a chef's roll with tuna. Salmon, and hamachi. Each was prepared to perfection. The sticky rice held together but wasn't at all gummy. The rolls had so much fish, so fresh you could taste the ocean. Tempura was light and crispy and didn't interfere with the sweet taste of the prawn. Everything was delicious. The staff was friendly and the service prompt. We'd eat here again and again.

The atmosphere, food and staff are all amazing at Kawakubo. The sushi is fresh and just delightful. There is no feeling of being rushed and you can always order more if the first round tasted too good to stop. Gluten free soy sauce available on request.
