Hip and trendy, but without all the fuss, Sushi Village is a staple in Whistler Village. Mikito Homma, Koji Shimizu, and Toshi Saito opened the restaurant in 1985 after they moved to the resort in search of the ski bum lifestyle. Who ever thought that sushi could pair so well with shredding on the slopes? Sushi Village is the most popular Japanese restaurant in Whistler – and that’s saying a lot because there are at least a half-dozen in town. The restaurant has tables, a seated bar in front of the open kitchen, and more traditional Japanese-style booths for larger groups. It’s “the” place to be and be seen for celebs, pro athletes, locals and anyone who’s anyone.
Rainbow and Beautiful rolls, Ahi Poke Tuna and delicious spicy agedashi tofu are just some of the delicious house specials at Sushi Village. They often have taster menus in the spring and fall. Sushi Village does not offer all-you-can-eat.
Beware the Saki Margaritas
A night at Sushi Village wouldn’t’ be complete without the Saki margaritas, which is why it’s the best place in Whistler to have a birthday party. Try them in lime and strawberry, and don’t be surprised if you end up getting a little tipsy over your sashimi. It’s not uncommon for the giant bottle of Saki to come out if celebrations are truly in order. But life in this fast lane isn’t cheap. If you’re going with a larger group, be prepared to spend about $50 per person
