  • I'm definitely NOT coming back here. Their service is so horrible.
    We had reservations made on a busy lunch hour during the week. We waited in line for someone to acknowledge us for 15 minutes. When I finally got sick of waiting and said "excuse me" to one of the passing waitresses, she put her hand up at me and walked away. When I finally got another waitress to acknowledge us, I told her about my reservation and she made up some story about someone else coming in with the same name and she gave our table away.
    Don't lie to your customers, don't treat them like sh*t and don't ignore them.
    I used to come here frequently but I can't stand how ignorant they are any longer.

  • Order: Nothing, since we left.

  • People shouldn't write a review if all they can stomach is rolled sushi. Hi Nicole, you didn't enjoy your California Roll? I'm sorry to hear that, but anybody who really likes sushi doesn't enjoy theirs either, no matter where it's made. If you're going to rate a restaurant based on their sushi then don't order maki, especially one's made with crab and avocado.

    My unagi was undercooked, but as a lover of all seafood, and especially unagi sauce, this didn't bother me so much. My (Japanese) Wife's Katsu Don had a bit too much fat to her liking, but what she didn't finish I did. The miso soup was a bit sweeter than what I'm used to, but the salad was delicious. The large sashimi boat was excellent. I was expecting to get the dried out, end of the night fish that every other restaurant seems to serve an hour before closing. I received fresh salmon, tuna, yellowtail, snapper, squid, crab, octopus, and more.

    If you like sushi and sashimi, eat this restaurant's. If you're looking for something a little more cooked then try this restaurant's, too. To each their own - I'd say try it, but if you don't like it that time then go elsewhere next time.

  • Order: Large sashimi, unagi don, katsu don, salmon head

  • Made a reservation for three for lunch and when we arrived they sat us at a table for two that was almost inside the kitchen. Every time someone walked into or out of the kitchen, our table was moved or one of our chairs was hit.
    Almost every piece of china given to us was chipped and I received a glass of water with a chip that was dangerously sharp.
    Since it's opening, the service and appearance has gone down hill, if they don't improve, people will go to one of the other thousands of restaurants in the downtown core.

  • Order: assorted sushi and maki rolls.

  • Order: Sushi was fresh and great. I would not recommend the cooked items in this place. It isn't worth the price. But the Sushi and Sashimi are great.

  • I absolutely love the food. Especially the crunch roll. I always get 2 orders. I highly recommend it. The service is good in the beginning, as some of you have already mentioned, but it sucks at the end. The reason is obvious - they want people to come in and it (spend money), so they act accorfingly but who cares about people that are leaving? Not a very good long-term business vision, but I got other things to worry about. It doesn't bother me - when I want to go, I just go up to the waitress and get my bill. One thing that bothers me though is that their prices are high. I could get the same meal at some other place and save 5-7 bucks. But I love their crunch roll, so I go and spend. :)

  • Order: Crunch roll, salmon salad roll, seaweed salad, miso soup, sapporo beer.

  • I thorourghly enjoyed this restaurant, with the exception of the service at the end, it is hard to get the server's attendtion when it's time to pay the bill, but other than that, I love avacado, and they always slab quite a bit on, and the deep friend green tea ice cream is my favorite dessert on that menu! It is so good! It would be better if the server paid a bit more attention to keeping the Green Tea filled, but other than that, I love the sushi there, and I'm on my way there right after work. I would suggest going after work, as at lunch time you usually have to reserve ahead of time to actually get a seat when you dine in. I think I will try the sushi pizza this time...

  • Order: Green Dragon, spider roll, california roll, miso soup, deep fried green tea ice cream.

  • Extremely disappointing - very poor quality sushi. The rice was mushy, the seaweed was tough and the rolls were not tightly rolled. We had: salmon sushi pizza, dragon roll, spider roll, spicy tuna roll (which had no spice at all) and the california roll. The sushi pizza was the only decent item that we ate. I would not recommend this restaurant.

  • Order: salmon sushi pizza, dragon roll, spider roll, spicy tuna roll and the california roll. Miso soup and salad.

  • DISAPPOINTED TODAY....i have ordered this salad on a weekly basis from Ninki. Until today, they have ALWAYS made this salad with tons of avocado and seafood like crab/salmon/octopus....today i barely have ANY seafood and only about 1/2 the avocado that i usually get....NOT ENOUGH TO MAKE UP FOR THE PRICE!

  • Order: my usual....avocado/seafood salad - take out.

  • I was *generally* pleased with the experience. The food was good. (although their definition of "spicy" is my definition of "mild") The service also started out very well, but when we were finished our meal it took rather a long time to get our waitress' attention and get our bill. We were going to order dessert, but we no longer had time to:(
    Nice decor, bright, friendly, but not extraordinary.

  • Order: Spicy Tuna rolls, Crunchy Salmon rolls, Yam Tempura
