What more can be said of this place. Excellent service, fantastic food. Reasonable price for what we get. So much variety. This should be added to the 7 wonders of Vancouver island.

Had dinner with friends. Book a reservation! They are always busy. Every table was full. Tried some appetizers and rolls. I really liked the spicy California roll with real Dungeness crab (pay extra for real crab - it's worth it). Great presentation, and free unlimited green tea is a nice touch. One of our appetizers was forgotten but no matter.... More

Great menu, service and presentations. I always enjoy the food here, its popularity means usually a wait but it is well worth it.

We arrived late in the lunch opening and it was packed. The hostess was great and kept eye contact and let us know when the table 'just had to be cleaned up - almost ready'. Once seated, service was prompt despite the fact they were so busy, and our order was taken quickly, water provided (and refilled when needed!!!!) -... More
