Sushi, Tempura, Sashimi, Black Cod Misonike, Salmon Oshisushi have never been presented in a way that reminds you how Japanese traditions used to be with a modern twist! If you want an experience, are familiar with Japanese cuisine as presented long ago when sushi was brought to the farmers in the field, come visit Kishimoto! Have sake and observe how... More

What a great addition to Commercial Drive! Came for dinner with some friends and enjoyed every bite. We had salmon sashimi, salmon and eel aburi sushi, gyoza, beet (flash fried strands) salad, yam and sweet potato tempura and pork okonomiyaki - all beautifully and artistically presented. We had a short wait, but just enough time to choose our order. Can't... More

We blew the concierge's mind (at our 5 star hotel) when we asked about this place. She said that most tourists had never heard of this place, but that, yes, it was great. I love going off the beaten path, and I hand it to TripAdvisor that I have the opportunity to become so informed. Yes, we waited for about... More

Last week I went with a friend to a small Japanese restaurant in the Commercial Drive area. This restaurant was already known for its good food. But I have never made it until now. And, of course, there was a line-up. But we could already have a look into the menu. So it we were able to order soon after... More

The chef's like to do some fun stuff with their presentations, and the fish is really great, especially for the price. Very small place, so be prepared to wait, unless you go later in the evening. Highly recommended to anyone. If you're on a budget and want really good sushi, come here rather than wasting your time at some of... More

Visited this place for lunch with several friends. Very busy spot and waited for a while to get seated. Good thing it was sunny so we waited outside and enjoyed some sunshine. The food was well worth the wait and we were surprised at how they can make food so delicate and nice. The oshisushi is awesome, nothing like what... More

When we went to Kishimoto, every table was filled so make sure if you go that you go early- but the wait was completely worth it! & the presentation of the rolls and appetizers were just as amazing as they tasted!

Kishimoto is the place to go for your sushi fix...except it will take you a while. This place provides good value for money but its small size results in long waits. Is the wait worth it? That is subjective. In my case I was ok to wait and enjoyed the salmon pressed sushi - quite decadent, the prawn presed sushi... More
