About us

Our focus

We’re always talking food. Food and drink, and who we get to feed.

We’re always talking technique and ingredients: the broad scope of tradition and innovation, the amazing farmers and foragers who supply our kitchen.

We’re always talking about seeing you again, or perhaps meeting you for the first time.

Come and dine with us. Great food, quaffable beverages, caring service. We look forward to seeing you soon!

It all began

Sarah and Taka left teaching and event promotion professions in Vancouver in order to pursue careers in the food industry arriving in Nanaimo in 2007.

As Pastry Chef, Sarah helped establish the then newly-opened Mon Petit Choux, while Takah worked at Taiyo as Sushi Chef. In 2011, both were hired to open a new restaurant in Lantzville called Riso. After 8 incredible years of managing and cheffing, the duo resigned from their employment there in order to recharge, refresh, and open their very own restaurant, Camas.
