This sushi is amazing, such a surprise, I wish the hours were longer because I could eat this sushi at all hours of the day. So fresh and amazing! The atmosphere is very casual which is nice and a good place to grab some food.

Now in a bigger space there's more room to sit down. The food is quick and fabulous. Staff are friendly. A great stop to break up a trip to Whisterl in the heart of downtown Squamish.

This is by far the best sushi in Squamish. I have never been disappointed. The Chadzuke soup is heavenly and the spicy sashimi don is like no other. This place is a must have for a sushi lover.

I love the food at Kozo. I also appreciate that they will change the way the way they make a roll. No Japanese restaurants in Squamish mix the mayonaise with the crab "or imitation crab" in their roles. Kozo has done so for me and I greatly appreciate it. Their Lumina "roll" is delicious although it is not really a... More

I stopped in for a quick sushi lunch. Kozo has always had a great luncheon special. This time as I waited for my meal, I couldn't help but look around and was disappointed at the obvious air of neglect as far as cleanliness. The sushi was delicious but the experience was ruined because of the lack of hygiene.

So I consider myself a bit of a sushi connoisseur and have tried sushi from BC to Nova Scotia. I have to say you guys gave me my best experience in many years. The fish was cut artfully by the chef and was the perfect temperature. The server was very kind and had a good grasp on what every dish... More

This is the best sushi place in Squamish! The sushi chefs are artists, the seafood very fresh, the service is quick. Eat in or take out. The atmosphere is pretty average, but the food is amazing. Don't miss it. (Hours are limited, so check the website or FB before you go.)
