My family took us here after raving about their black pepper ribeye, plus it was owned by my Uncles friend. We were a party of 12. The restaurant was not busy with only about 5 tables filled. There was only 2 staff noticeably working. Took 20 mins before our order was taken. Took another hour before our food came to the table. We were all pretty frustrated, annoyed and dissatisfied with our... more

My husband and I came here by chance on a visit to the city a year ago I just got a Yelp account and while I wish I could remember what we ordered, I can say that what we had was delicious and filling. The waitresses were very nice and accommodating to my husband's severe mushroom allergy. I would definitely love to visit again!

I'll start by saying that Otowa is part of a string of asian cuisine that has served to redeem my original impression of the awful asian food scene in Saskatoon.

Came here for dinner purely by chance after finding out my other choice of the evening was closed. Located quite centrally near the Midtown plaza, this place sports a big hanging sign you can't miss, with a colourful picture of Mt.... more

Only average sushi
February 06, 2014

Loved the crab Rangoon that we had as an appy, but I found that the sushi wasn't quite up to par. It wasn't bad, but it was rather bland and definitely not the best in Saskatoon. (That's Sushiro, by the way). The decor is like something out of a seventies movie, but it's clean and the service was quick and... more

Great sushi- was around before sushi became 'the thing' and has never ceased to amaze me with all the varieties of sushi!! I've only had sushi here, but have always loved it

pre-concert dinner
October 03, 2012

My friend and I decided to try something a little different when having an early supper before an evening at a concert. We found the Otawa restaurant downtown, only 1 1/2 blocks from the Midtown Mall. The broth soup was tasty, the ginger topped salad very nice, and I can recommend the lemon chicken. She ordered and enjoyed the sushi.... more

Good quality sushi, great atmosphere
October 01, 2012

Saskatoon has many 'all-you-can-eat' sushi restaurants, but if you are looking for mouthwatering goodness and quality Otowa is tops. The restaurant decor is great, the service has always been great. It is nice and quiet, very relaxing atmosphere. People coming from Vancouver or other places along the coast should try to keep in mind that it is more difficult and... more

Crab Rangoon

Their Crab Rangoon is to die for! best I've ever had! Sushi is pretty good too, i'd say better than a buffet/ all you can eat style sushi restaurant.

Extremely expensive for subpar food
June 25, 2012

My bill was $70 for food that normally costs around $40 in most sushi restaurants. I've paid half this for way better quality sushi at restaurants in Vancouver and Winnipeg. The Yam tempura was chewy and the either the wasabi or soy sauce was VERY salty. The service was good, but it wasn't very busy.

Best kept secret in Saskatoon, maybe even Saskatchewan! Every dining experience at Otowa is great. The sushi is wonderful, fresh and tasty. The atmosphere is quaint and quiet, and the staff are absolutely great. The Saporo Beer is nice and cold and each table comes with pots of hot tastey Japanese Tea.

Otowa has for over a decade been a favourite spot of ours for a special dinner or a delicious lunch. Tonight we were a party of three celebrating my husband’s birthday there because we are never disappointed with the fantastic food and nice quiet atmosphere. After ordering, we were told that it was a busier than usual night, which is fine with me, I don’t mind waiting a bit for a delicious... more

Worst Sushi in town

I’ve only ever had the sushi there, and I’ve tried it twice. It is over priced and just not good at all. I don’t think I will be trying it again. The service was very bad as well.

Won't be going back again. Arrived and was seated at 645 with 5 other people for a birthday party. Orders were taken at 730. Food did not arrive until 845 (despite the fact that two groups that came in after us received two courses in this time). Were not apologized to at all, nor were we offered compensation. In fact, the wait staff acted very snobby when we questioned any of this. The food... more

However...the service could be improved! Also, the atmosphere seems a little incomplete. Seems like an old tavern dressed up with a few gadgets here and there. Still highly recommending the experience!!!

It's raw beef!

I only had the sushi and tempura, but I can recommend neither. The sushi rice was wet, actually left liquid on my plate. I could not even eat it, and I am a sushi fanatic. The tempura was acceptable, but the batter was heavy. Besides that, it was some of the most expensive sushi I've found, and that's compared to rates in Calgary and Vancouver. Maybe the other food it good, but in my opinion,... more

I've been to all the sushi restaurants around this town, and this one takes the cake. The service is awesome, and the food is fantastic. Try the deep fried squid for an appetizer. I had the maki roll, and it was awesome. Give this restaurant a shot!! The service and food will make you want to come back for more!
