DH and I both had Bento boxes - he with the beef teriyaki and I with the chicken teriyaki. Helpings were very plentiful. Very short wait after ordering. Except for California Rolls, we did not have any of the individual sushi, so cannot speak to that. We really enjoyed all the different choices in the Bento boxes and thought that... More

Great place to grab a quick dinner before an event or to take a lunch break at while shopping. I'm surprised by the overall low score of the reviews as I ate here twice - once for lunch, once for dinner - and had great service and good food both times.

My sister and I arrived at this place after spending a few hours on a bus. We were starving and this place left us full. We each had vegetarian Bento boxes. Hers with rice and mine with yakisoba. The yakisoba was greasier than any I've had before and my sister's rice was dry. We laughed that the "fruit" on the... More

I have been to this restaurant about 6 times; always before the football game. We arrived at 5:30 on a Friday and there was maybe 6 other people in the restaurant. There were 3 of us and each of us ordered a bento box. I ordered Bento Box A consisting of miso soup, teriyaki chicken, rice, green salad, fruit, 6... More

Hanging in Vancouver for a couple days with girlfriends and after hours of shopping they wanted sushi. So we set off to find a sushi place and came across Junsei. Between the four of us we sampled Bento Boxes, Dynamite Rolls, Sashimi and some other items I can't recall. Everything was bliss. Fresh and delicious. The Bento boxes were massive.... More

You can linger here if you like (there are some comfy booths), but we use it as a drop-in before the theatre and haven't been disappointed yet: business-like (if somewhat impersonal) service, an ample, no-surprises menu, fresh fish and decent portions. Standard tables but oddly low chairs..

I usually pick up a bento box take out after work, it's always a great deal and lots of food. The menu has a pretty good selection. Service is always quick, and when I call in my order, it is ready to go by the time I walk over to pick it up 10 minutes later. Staff are friendly enough,... More

We had shrimp tempura and vegetable tempura. Both were tasty, crisp, and tender. The service was attentive, though not outstanding. The sake (hot) was good, but not especially so. The menu seemed a bit more extensive than normal for a mid-range Japanese place. Lots of sushmi and sashimi choices.

First up - this place is NOT Japanese. No, not even a little bit. The menu has Chinese options and dishes in almost every category. My partner reckons the tea was probably the worst we have had in a 'Japanese' restaurant. The rice was gluggy, the tempura was oily, the salads could have been fresher and so could the seafood!...
