We had a really great meal here. In fact the best meal of our Canadian Road Trip so far. We were lucky to be served by a young lady called Rhin who was amazing. Very friendly and passionate about the food. We let her advise...us what to order and everything she suggested was superb. A really great meal, really great service in what must be one of the best restaurants in Revelstoke. The Hill family from UK.More

This was some of the best sushi we have ever had. Worth not knowing exactly what time you will be dining. There are no true reservations, you give them a time you would like to eat and then they call you when a table is...ready. Sounds crazy, but it works for them. The place is small and cozy. Our waitress was excellent and the minute we walked in we were greeted warmly. If you love sushi, this place is not to be missed!More

Thank you so much for the review! We’re so glad you enjoyed! The waitlist can feel a bit crazy, but with the large amount of no show reservations we were getting we had to find a new system, but I’m glad it always works out...More

First time we’ve taken our teenage boys to a Japanese restaurant. One of them doesn’t eat fish and the other one is extremely fussy. Everyone enjoyed it! Plenty to choose from on the menu. The Cowboy sushi roll was a particular hit. Very friendly waitresses...and not too expensive.More

Stopped at Revelstoke for one night. Went looking for restaurants early on walk to plan for later. Felt like fish. Menu looked good. Went back later and the place was packed. Friday night crowd. Almost no room as we hadn't made a reservation. Says a...lot. We had edamame, then tuna and salmon sashimi. Wild salmon. Then some nigiri sushi - ebi, Toro, more salmon. Then had to order bit more sashimi. Great waiter. Jasmine tea properly served too. Will and have recommended to friends and family.More

We love this place, I went with my 2 granddaughters, the place was full but the very nice lady at the desk smiled and said she would find us a place very soon and she did, our own room upstairs. I'm sure it was xstra...work for the beautiful staff but you would not know it we could have not been looked after better, they made us feel special, even my 5 year old commented on the friendly people working there. The cuisine was fantastic and the staff shawn with natural warmth, Thank you everyone we really appreciate everything.More

We had a great experience at this lovely restaurant. Our family of 4 was seated right away, and everyone loved their food. The Toro sashimi was excellent, as was the Crunch roll our server recommended. When the kids ordered ice cream for dessert, our server...brought us a complimentary mini scoop of a flavor we were curious about. If you like sushi, this is a perfect dinner in Revelstoke!More

Some of the best Sushi we’ve had. Exceptional knife work and presentation. Sushi Lovers Chef’s Selection was absolutely scrumptious. Hard working knowledgeable servers added to a great overall experience. Great teamwork.

Wow, we just had an amazing dinner as a family here in Revelstoke. Excellent sushi and probably the best Edamame ever. The salmon was insanely good - and the service was so friendly. Highly recommended.

When we came we asked for an outdoor table. One person quickly removed the last customer’s plates and she didn’t even sanitize the table while the other staff were. We waited a very long time for the food and it was just average. However after...that the other staff were super nice.More

The food was very good and the service was outstanding; they get the food out hot and fast. The interior is quite dark and a little crowded but the good makes up for it all. Dessert menu is very limited, but just fill up on...everything else!More
