Without a doubt the best presentation of sushi I have seen in the lower mainland. The dishes are colorful and the artistry of the chefs quite amazing. This restaurant does not take reservations. You line up to obtain a number & they will call you when it is your turn. They prefer you to order in advance so they can... More

I highly recommend trying Kishimoto Japanese Kitchen on Commercial Drive if you want superb Japanese food in Vancouver. This busy little establishment has lots of talented staff in the kitchen, and friendly wait staff who can assist you with finding something on the menu that is more exciting than a basic sushi combo. I asked what the house specialty was,... More

Great, authentic sushi in Vancouver. The sushi and sashimi was really fresh. Even though I got there early, there was a huge line there already waiting!

In a city with a sushi place on every 2nd block, Kishimoto stands out. Excellent food, gorgeous presentation and reasonable prices.

Two foodie friends discovered this place on tripadvisor and we decided to stop by for a meal. One of the best meals I ate in vancouver and one of my top Japanese meals anywhere in the world. We stuck to sushi and sashimi but there was no doubt that a master of the craft was in the kitchen. It's not... More

This place has great japanese food but long lineups! The place is small and they do not accept reservations. The food is solid and the presentation is beautiful and the price is just average.

Such friendly staff, everyone is so professional and helpful. The menu has lots of authentic Japanese food to choose from. The sushi rolls were presented beautifully, the sashimi is served on ice! And the Ishinabe came out sizzling hot, the server added the sauce table side and mixed up all the delicious rice and unagi. All the garnishes, finishing touches,... More
