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

You must arrive early even on a weeknight if you want to avoid any lineups. This place is busy for a reason; the sushi is delicious and is presented with flair. On today's visit, we had the ahi tuna + avocado, lovingly prepared and served on a block of ice for that added pizzazz. No need for any soy sauce... More

Real busy spot on Commercial. Expect a bit of a wait anytime past 6pm for dinner so come early! Food I had: - Sashimi salad - pieces were chopped into cubes (so not real sashimi) but good besides that for portion and flavour - Oshi Salmon - just like the Aburi at Miku except creamier in flavor (great for $10.95)...

The food was absolutely fantastic! There was a waiting line, but totally worth it! Food presentation was amazing as well.
