Great service and good food. Love the soft shell crab roll and their scallops fried rice. The California roll was filled with fresh crab meat. Best eating place in Yellowknife.

We went to Sushi Cafe with business colleagues for lunch. We went with the promise of great sushi. We were not disappointed. Both sushi and sashimi were outstanding. And great service also.
