My husband and I enjoyed our dinner here. I love Japanese food whereas my husband has some hesitation with raw fish but amazingly he enjoyed every bit of it. He ate more than I did. We went for 6pm dinner and Cookai paid for our parking ticket at The Crossing. Will definitely be back again.

Really nice place and delicious food, best sushi in CHC, although lucky for me I came during happy hour as I thought the prices are a little high. But again, the food was really perfect

We loved the sushi train... Having the option to pick as you go was awesome. Things start to add up after a few but it is worth it. It caters to seafood lovers of course but has some tasty wee meat lovers morsels. I tried the ramen and unfortunately didn't hit the mark for me and the noodles seemed to be 2 minute. Half our group had the pork belly as it is a family fave and whilst the flavours were there the skin had no crunch to it so hadn't been sear to create a semi crackling after being slow cooked. In saying all of the above our group will definitely be back on a Tuesday for the all you can eat which we are excited about as we absolutely enjoyed ourselves and loved a lot of the other wee dishes
