The sushi was excellent, fresh and delicious. We were able to get a great spot on the patio and the view was superb. It was a little chilly however they supplied warm blankets and the manager had a fun sense of humor. We would have given a five out of five but our waitress was a bit grumpy, and seemed... More

We lucked out and found a table on the patio looking over the ocean. We watched the float planes come in and out. We had drinks (they have a good, BC wine list) and a feast of sushi. All the sushi was fresh and delicious. The patio did get a little cold later in the evening but they supply blankets... More

Service is a bit perfunctory, but genuine and relatively efficient. Eclectic interior gives you plenty to look at. Fresh fish, great sushi and the tempura batter was nice & light.

The sushi is fresh and well made. We had sashimi, some maki rolls and the special Buddha roll with strawberries. The view is fantastic.

Went in here as it is waterside and not overcrowded. Didn't realise that it was all sushi, stupidly, but what we had was a absolutely delicious so would definitely recommend it. Can sit outside overlooking the water or inside. Friendly staff.

We really liked this restaurant - a fantastic array of choices and the food was fresh and delicious washed down with good local beers . So good we ate there two night running. You can be very traditional and have sake if you wish. Great views if you sit on the large balcony .

Okay, honestly...we're from the New York metropolitan area and sushi is popular but expensive. Sushi in BC is generally a good deal all around....fresh, tasty and economical. Tough Sushi was also a lot of fun. Housed in a traditional house overlooking the water, the indoors resembles nothing one would expect as far as a Japanese theme. However, it is chock... More

Checked this place out as it's a nice spot along the water and who doesn't like fresh sushi. The food was alright but sickeningly overpriced; over 11 dollars for a dynamite roll and almost 14 for a spider. Staff was friendly but there was an issue with their pos machine and they ended up charging me twice and it was... More
