I've just moved to Lethbridge early this year, and in St. Albert I used to have a favorite Japanese restaurant. When I found out how highly recommended O-Sho is, I immediately came here with my fiancée and had some of the most amazing sushi I have ever eaten. I now eat at O-Sho quite regularly and am never disappointed. If you're a fan of sushi, katsu, ramen, udon or other staples of Asian cuisine, this is easily the place to go for them.

We planned a surprise birthday dinner at the Lighthouse recently and Ryan and his staff helped with the menu planning and organization including some unexpected blips due to weather. The food was fabulous as was the presentation. Staff was helpful and the customer service from start to finish was impeccable. I can't thank the staff, chef, and Ryan enough for making evening really special for us.

Let me tell you about Koko's -- when they first opened up in Lethbridge, they were slow and only open at lunch. However, the food at Koko's will take you halfway around the world to Japan. The quality is top-notch and consistent. The dashi in the Udon is superb. The glutton in me wishes for a bigger portion. The curry chicken katsu is the best katsu in town. There is no comparison. I love coming here for lunch and dinner. Small space, amazing place. Delicious food.
