Went there twice within last 2 weeks. Love to visit this restaurant whenever we stay in Vancouver. Servers were very friendly and the restaurant atmosphere made you feel you are in Japan. Salmon salad as well as the tuna sashimi were very fresh and delicious with beautiful presentation. Besides, you won't disappoint with the stone-grilled beef tongue while tan-tan noodle... More

Stopped in for lunch and had a delicious meal. Tuna/avocado dish was the highlight. Friendly service and quick food even though it was crowded.

My first time in Vancouver and I was very glad to try this restaurant. While the food was excellent, and floor staff were very friendly, for me the highlight of the night was spot prawns’ sashimi. On top of the incredibly sweet meat, they served it with deep prawn heads, which created a fantastic contrast. Highly recommended, but make sure... More

Kingyo is a must stop for us every time we are in Vancouver. Every dish is made with at least 6 bewilderingly complex but together refined ingredients - from the mackeral (saba) pressed sushi to their take on the bi bin bap and an excellent Hamachi sashimi salad. My favorite decadence is their Chicken Karaage (or two), served with three... More

My first time visit. The food is delicious. I like the atmosphere there. Snow crab oshisushi is yummy which has the icy plum taste jelly. Fried chicken very juicy. We need to order one more plate. The food is new Japanese food taste and style. Should go and try.
