Best take-out sushi value

I have been a regular at Samurai for over 12 years and it remains the best take-out value for sushi in Vancouver. Tip # 1: phone ahead to order; otherwise, you will end up waiting in line - especially at meal hours - in a rather restricted space. Even a 20-minute lead makes a huge... read more

Three of us went for supper. We ordered 3 California rolls, 3 Vancouver rolls (California with smoked salmon.....yum), 2 tempura prawn rolls and 1 other (sorry, can't remember what it was). Total came to $35 and we had WAY too much food. It would have been enough for at least another full meal. The food was great! It's a small... More

We frequently take-out from this restaurant. Pros: The food portions are very large and we always order the house roll. Cons: There has been a few mix-ups (twice out of ~12 orders) with the food we ordered. I.e. We ordered Unagi Roll (Eel), but received some other roll in the box. I always recommend double checking your order in the... More

They serve you a lot of food and the prices are fair. It's cash only!! However the quality wasn't that great. I got chicken teriyaki don and spicy tuna roll I through half of it out. Not the greatest joint in the area. Although not a lot of options around.

Great sushi at a very cheap price. We could not ask for a better local experience. Food was excellent.

My favorite go to sushi takeout restaurant! Sure, the service leaves something to be desired but their sushi more than makes up for it. My husband and I always order the Maki Combo B....offers a little of everything and super huge portion size.

Ordered take out 4 times recently. Huge portions and good. We ordered bento box dinners, sushi orders on the side, udon soup for my husband one time. Tempura was good, huge alaska rolls, was too full to finish. Picked up one order on a sunny Saturday afternoon off hours and the place was packed. Would highly recommend this place.

We kind of flipped our when we say the size of each piece of sashimi that this place serves (think: fillet!). We went for an early lunch and fish was incredibly fresh. We also ordered rolls, and they, too, were massive. And it's not just a ton of rice, as some other sushi places serve, it's massive pieces of fish,... More

I live in the neighbourhood and go there often. Food is great, plentiful, and the price is better than almost anywhere. There is often a line-up of Japanese patrons outside, which should tell you a lot. The interior is small and crowded, which is PART of the reason for a line-up. I prefer to buy it there but bring it... More

The quality of sushi here is average to good at best. The service has much to be desired, but I generally just get something to go as there is no real sit-down space most of the time. Prices are decent and it's very close to oakridge skytrain.. Just beware, there is no Debit machine so bring cash!
