Horrible! Do not order their ramen. It's literally instant noodles which anyone can prepare at home in 3 min, with the addition of bok choi (first time having bok choi in my ramen) and a slice of chashu. Waitress didn't know what Ajitama egg was, offered to have an omelet added to the noodles. So called home made Dashi sauce... More

Never in my life have I ever felt so mistreated as I had been with my niece and daughter. My daughter didn't like her soup, my niece and I tried the soup it had a slimy texture to it. Neither of us liked the soup, so we couldn't trade her. It was terrible. She asked the owner if she could... More

It was very obvious that this place takes the time to prepare things right and uses fresh ingredients. My sunomono salad was one of a kind. I wish I could have gotten my food sooner as it took about 40 minutes. Other then that my service was friendly and food great.

When I am working in Kamloops, my go to lunch place is Sanbiki's. I particularly like their Gyoza and their Sunomono salad. In the winter, you can't beat the Udon soups. The service is fast and efficient. If I phone ahead, they are even faster and make me feel special when I arrive. Its great for people who have tight... More

My wife and I were here on a tour, we had eaten at the Frick & Frack and wanted something to bring with us on the tour bus next morning (No breakfast provided at the hotel). Not sure of the restaurant, since we had never been in this city before, we decided to play it safe and ordered California Roll... More

We had not tried this restaurant for sushi before. We generally go to a small restaurant across the street but they happened to be closed for vacation so we went to Sanbiki. Service was a bit slow but the california rolls were delicious. My wife enjoyed her vegetable tempura. We certainly will not hesitate to go back.

Haven't eaten here for a few years and won't return. While the tuna roll was tasty, the rest of our food was pretty ho-hum. Two of the dishes we ordered weren't available and we were charged a higher price for a substitution that was required as a result. Service was just plain awful. There appeared to be one server plus... More

Was not disappointed by any means on this trip into Sanbiki. The tuna main with ponzu was great. The salmon sashimi was just as good. Very nice texture. May have been slightly smoked. Very good. Had some of the standard fare sushi and felt it was good. The spicy ramen stood out slightly above the rest in this meal. Would... More
