Great sushi

First, I would like to say that I don't (like to) eat sea food but gave this place a chance, since my traveling companions wanted to eat some sushi. When you arrive you write down your name and number of guests on a list, so they can offer the best service they can. When we were sited down we... read more

Commercial drive is a keen competitive place with international cuisine around the globe, namely Ethiopian, Lebanese, chinese, thai, jap, korean, Italian...you name it. Headed to kishimoto at around noon and luckily headed straight in. Ordered the bento, sashimi and spider roll. Unexpected services with super efficient and attentive staff. The food was fresh, yummy and presentable. The sushi with jap... More

Kishimoto was recommended by our son, as our usual stop is up the road. The selection is interesting, and we decided on three rolls. Dragon roll, Hamachili Roll and the Sun Dried tomato Roll. My wife preferred the Hamachili, but she just loves cilantro, as I really enjoyed Dragon roll. The char on the top just set it apart. The... More

I have to travel to Vancouver twice a year and every time I have to make a few visit to Kishimoto. Love their quality and presentation but since its a tiny restaraunt you will have to expect to wait and try avoid going with more than 4 people because you will have a hard time waiting for a table. If... More

We were here because of the relative hype on this small Commercial Drive Sushi restaurant in Tripadvisor, Urbanspoon, Yelp etc. We were lucky in having only two tables waiting ahead of us at 6pm on a week night AND finding free side street parking within 50 m. The food was very artistically presented, the sushi ingredients fresh - as it... More

Food so good it is worth the 1hr long wait. Presentations so beautiful you may not be able to eat the art. Sat at sushi bar and savored the flavor and master sushi artists behind the counter. Absolutely the best Japanese on the Drive if not in Vancouver. The Salmon and Tuna Oshisushi rolls are out of this world.

Hubby and I took our friends from South Bay in California and their well behaved 2-year old here for a taste of Vancouvers' affordable sushi. We got there right at opening and we were delighted that we did not need to wait (as it was cold outside). Space is usually tight but we managed with their wooden high chair. The... More

This is a wonderful place on the Drive to have Sushi. The food comes looking like it was sculpted not prepared before your eyes. Hours they are open have changed, so make sure you check. Also, get there early because there may be a lineup. It will be expensive but worth it.

Tried to eat here but there's a sign saying that they're closed from March 9th to the 24th. Was here last month and we were wowed by the food. Our foodie cousins from San Fran told us to meet them there. Even a really nice local guy told us other options to go to on the Drive when he saw... More
