Top Ten Sushi Joints in Vancouver

A small unassuming room without much publicity or marketing but this place delivers some of the best sushi in the city. Vancouver is a real hotbed of great sushi, on a global scale, and I've eaten at close to 100 different sushi places in this town, and for food quality and freshness this place is... read more

Authentic Japanese food made and served by authentic Japanese chefs and servers.The chicken teriyaki had the right amount of teriyaki and the California Roll was light and tasty. Overall a really good Japanese restaurant.

For dinner I ordered a Takoyaki (deep-fried octopus balls), a plate of Special Assorted Sushi (Shrimp California Roll and a selection of Salmon, Tuna, Surf Clam, Yellow Tail, Squid, Octopus, and Shrimp Nigiri), and the daily special of Tuna Karaage. The Takoyaki came first. This tasted better than takoyaki I’ve had at the Richmond Nightmarket and the batter was cooked... More

Not sure what the big deal is with Shiro's. Although it's close to the Manor Guest House the service is extremely slow and I've had better Sushi elsewhere. Not sure I'm going to go back. And the staff speaks very little English, so if you are confused by menu items… oh well.

We discovered Shiro about 15 years ago and it remains the best sushi I've ever had. Miss seeing Shiro behind the sushi bar, but it's still the best in town.

I tried Shiro sushi a couple of weeks ago and had a tremendously great meal! I originally found it by checking out a google map of Cambie Street in Vancouver and there it was. A quick check ot Tripadvisor reviews told me I had to try this place, and, OH MY.... previous reviews were spot on! Stopped by again today... More

Never would have known about Shiro but a friend who used to live here recommended it. They are on Cambie Street in a little strip mall. There is limited parking in front. Great atmosphere! Smaller restaurant and the tables are pretty close together, however the sushi was excellent and very fresh. In fact everything was terrific. Will be back!
