What an unexpected pleasure to find such an amazing cuisine. We are greeted with warm welcome and seated promptly. The tea was great! There are a lot of things to choose from. No only Japanese, but also Korean bbin pop was delicious. The bento box was delicious, too. Wonderful presentation. We were attended to professionally so we never need to ask for anything. We recommend this restaurant highly of you get a chance to be in the neighbourhood, you must eat here.

Huge rave to the awesome sushi (so good I didn't get a picture lol) and the awesome selection of Ramone, and the to die for desserts they have. Such an amazing little place that brings back so many memories just being there. Thank you! Ps. Amazingly fresh tuna.

Good Service. Prices are a bit high, but not unreasonable for the Valley. Got a large take out order for lunch. Fish quality was good. Rice was super dry, to the point that the rolls and nigiri were falling apart. Good sushi starts with the rice. Might try it again in a few months and update the review if applicable.

This is definitely one of Courtenay’s hidden gems. Very clean inside and the servers were friendly and efficient. Now for the food, we had the Chef’s Plate which changes daily and only a limited amount are served. It was delicious, actually better than delicious. We also had the California Bento and equally as yummy. They also were generous with the amount of food as we could not eat it all. Absolutely coming back!

My wife and I went for supper - spur of the moment - last Saturday. Nice inside decor.She had a Bento box and I had the Chicken teriyaki. Both were excellent. Generous portions. Very good service too!We'll be back for sure!

Really lovely and kind waitresses and servers, forst time being here was delicious sushi and the way they presented the sushi dishes was beautiful art.


Flavor is really authentic for Spicy Seafood Ramen (more like chewhly noodle not instant noodle at all) a.k.a jjambbong in Korean. Super busy vibrant place need to wait for seating and ordering food for sure. One point minus for the second smoke that kept wafting in from the opened kitchen door (it's hot I understand) and ppl smoking near the door. Will be back again and maybe sit farther away from the entrance to avoid that.

Our family's go-to sushi restaurant in town. If you want take-out, the online ordering system works well and it's simple. Their sushi and sashimi is great, tempura is hot and crispy and not greasy. In fact, no dish has been disappointing, and we've tried almost all of them. I recommend you try the halibut tempura. Staff are also friendly and efficient. All round, a great restaurant. Prices are not low, mind you...


This place never disappoints.Always tasty, my go to place.Warm Saki has a good taste.Quite a large menu.Be adventurous, don't just have a roll.Has a fireplace and booths.Shrimp sunimono is good to.Sushi/Sashimi lunch box good value a $14 range

Service was friendly and fast. I died and went to sushi heaven when I was informed so many things could be gluten free, including the tempura! Highly recommend. We ordered 6 rolls and they were all delicious.

Every time I've ordered here the food is fresh, fast and satisfying. One of my go to places when I haven't packed a lunch and want to feel good after I eat ( instead of fast food drive through). I call ahead and its ready for pick up in about 15 minutes.
