Lovers of sushi have a reason to celebrate with the opening of Nagomi Sushi Takeout at 519 B, 9th Ave. N. in Golden’s downtown core.

The business, which opened on Oct. 7, is owned by Tonia and Shigenori Nishioka.

Tonia was born and raised in Golden and returned to live in town around five years ago.

After working at another job for the past five years Shigenori wanted to get back into cooking which he had taken as a post secondary program.

“I was always thinking that if I could get an opportunity to cook I would. I noticed Golden didn’t have a sushi place in town and it would be nice for us to have a little shop,” he said.

Since it officially opened residents have been coming by the shop and trying out the food.

“It has been great. There has been a lot of support from local people,” Shigenori said

“They have been encouraging and very kind,” Tonia added. “I thought being in business would be tough but dealing with the people has been wonderful.”

Tonia also said it has been nice seeing the local business people and high school students come in and try the food.

“We wanted to be there for them…We thought about something quick, healthy and affordable,” Tonia said.

Over time the restaurant will be developing a wider menu with more options for people in town. Opening a new business has been an adjustment for the whole family.

“The first week I was wondering what we had done but now we are in a routine and are getting used to it,” Tonia said.

As the future plans are underway, Tonia said this is a great place for her and Shigenori to work.

“He loves entertaining. He always says he wants to cook for people what he wants to eat,” she said.
