Nagano Japanese Restaurant, Coquitlam / Port Moody

Nagano Japanese Restaurant first began in Newport Village in Port Moody over ten years ago. I still remember when I first started going when I was in high school. With so many sushi restaurants opening and closing, there are maybe a few I would consider best Japanese restaurant in Coquitlam / Tri-Cities area. Shyun Sushi, Osamu, and Nagago would be your best choice IMO.

Nagano soon expanded its operations to Glen Drive by Coquitlam Center. It is a sign that this place retains loyal customers and attracts new ones with its quality ingredients and friendly services.

The Coquitlam Center location is trendier, while the Newport one is more traditional. Both are good and depends which location you are closer to. Nagano Coquitlam, has private party rooms along the back, section tables and a sushi bar with high chairs in the front. Polaroids of restaurant parties, guests, and staff makes the sushi bar rooftop more personable and character. Sometimes if you are lucky, the owner / chef will be in house making your sushi, sashimi or rolls. He is always sociable and comes by for a chat!

Bite size karrage balls with drizzled with tonkutsu sauce. Inside is mashed potatoe, seafood and carrots.

Sometimes because they are so bite size that they become a little charred and hard.

I was first introduced to this at Osamu Sushi (click) another one of my favorite go-to sushi places. The chef recommended it after. Iniri sweet bean curd is opened (instead of the typical folded with rice inside) stuff with goodies!

Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese $10.99

Slightly disappointed that there were no “cream cheese” type fusion rolls on the menu. We asked if this was possible.

Also one of my favourites here is the oranges that are served afterwards.
