My family had a great meal and my wife now understands why I wince at our local Teriyaki establishments for their take on Japanese food. The price is a bit more, but the food is JAPANESE and while on vacation a person should treat themselves to a bit of another culture for enjoyment and learning. I would give the place... More

Very tasty food, a cut above the ubiquitous run of the mill restaurants in most towns. My bento box was delicious & with generous portions. Tempura batter very light. Our hostess is co-owner with her husband, the chef; she was very gracious. It's an old established Harrison restaurant. Private rooms are available in season.

have visited Kitami several times and the food is always excellent. The sushi is prepared as you wait and was some of the finest I have eaten.

Eaten a lot of Japanese food and this is very good. Can't speak to other reviews but it seems this is husband wife business which might struggle with large group. We had excellent light dinner for less than $50 for 2 including tip! We had excellent gyoza which I suspect were home made. Miso had more ingredients than I am... More

I have to agree with Ron K about rating this place poor. No one approached the table for 20 minutes. When My 17 year old granddaughter had picked out food from their menu that had prawns in batter and asked the server if she could have the prawns without batter, the server rudely said "no substitutions". My granddaughter explained her... More

Nothing to rave about. Sushi was ok, wasn't spectacular. Love the salmon maki, you can tell its wild salmon. Pricey for sushi fare, service was slow, only one person serving. Decor is outdated. Friendly people though. Recommend you book reservations if you come on weekend.

I walked in with my family and waited 20min without anyone approaching our table.. So we left. That was my existence. Also interior of the restaurant is extremely outdated and smelly.. Really bad experience we had...

This Japanese Owned Restaurant is absolutely fantastic! It is a block from the beach and if you love Sushi you will be impressed! We are from Victoria, BC and have lots of sushi places to choose from, but Kitami is in my top 3. The place was spotless! The food was fresh and the service was wonderful. It was on... More

We are experienced sushi eaters, group of 6 for dinner last night. The sashimi was ok- (salmon great colour but not great texture or flavour but the tuna was decent). Along the same lines, the spicy tuna roll outstanding (it had little pieces of tuna tossed in a signature spicy sauce -not mayo- and topped with a sliver of jalapeño.... More
