Surprisingly good

Don't expect much from these little sushi places found all around Vancouver but this is a solid place I would go to again. Nice waitresses and sushi rolls were good. Service was quick and prices were reasonable. Good place to recharge during an afternoon of shopping.

I went here on a Sunday to get take out. I ordered 4 entrees. After paying, I proceeded to sit on the one of many empty tables. (There were only 3 occupied tables in a restaurant that easily seats 30). Then the manager said that I should move to the bar, like he was expecting a mad rush of people... More

Although the food was fantastic, this place needs a review of their waiters. Seems they are more interested in sitting people down so you don,t leave rather than service their customers. Hard to get the wait staffs atten like filling empty water glasses. when we were finished dinner, no one cleared our table of dishes and no bill. We waited... More

I am not sure what to say about this place. We were ignored the moment they sat us down. We ordered drinks and food and then... nothing. No drinks, no water (for 20 min), no waiter, no food. We left. Will NOT return.

A unassuming restaurant that is clean with friendly, helpful staff. The sushi was sooo delicious and the stir-fry was good too. We popped in for a meal round 5 p.m. so it wasn't busy but passing by at mealtimes, it is really busy. My only wish would have been to have a nice glass of wine with my meal!

Vancouver is full of good Sushi places, and I think this is one, clean, neat, friendly staff, and lots of choices. The 3 of us ate for $33, and everything was good. Drop by, but avoid lunch time, either go around 11:00/11:30, or come after the noon rush, I would say it's popular with locals working downtown.

Place is packed and if you are looking for privacy or to be served with a lunch buddy dont come here! If your looking for reasonable, fresh lunches and good quality, then come here 5 days a week. The food is always good, i usually do a salad, gyoza combo for $12. The service is friendly and this place is... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch on our visit to Vancouver. It was busy but we were served quickly and the staff were very friendly. The food was very fresh and good. We had sushi, and udon soup. The atmosphere was bright and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this place for lunch.

Lunch for two with drinks was about 40$ ( 4 plates). I'd say not pricy. Place is quite busy and it seems popular. Uncomplicated staff good and tasty choice of sushi/nigiri/rolls is reason to recommend this place.

Staying in Gastown

Neighborhood Profile
Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
