Sushi is fresh, delicious and reasonably priced, especially the bentos. Tiny sushi bar in quaint Kerrisdale, on West 42nd Ave. Friendly and efficient wait staff.

Their beef tataki, roasted sushi, and rolls are all amazing!! We keep craving for their food! Can't figure out the reason but Ajisai really stands out from other Japanese restaurants in Vancouver. Expect to see a line-up, but good that it's next to London Drugs so you can go shop around while you wait.

I'm hesitant to write this review because the restaurant seems very busy as it is. Despite plenty of good sushi/japanese places here in the Bay Area, I still can't stop thinking about Ajisai and its incredibly fresh selection of fishes and very affordable price. Expect a wait if you come during prime dinner hours. However, it is definitely worth the... More

Came for lunch. Nice and long menu. Lots of options. Great price. For 12$ miso soup and sushi combo. Seem to be popular on the area. I was lucky and didn't wait but on exit the entrance was packed! You can ask for a quick meal or more elaborate one and you won't be dissapointed

My son and I went to this restaurant last week - he had been told about it by some friends who live in Vancouver. There was a wait - we were told approximately 20 minutes, so we went for a walk and came back - there were some seats opening up very soon. It wasn't long before there was a... More

We were in Vancouver for two nights and found this restaurant listed as one of the top four sushi restaurants in our hotel magazine (Sheraton). We knew the area so we went there on a Friday night at 7 pm. There was a small line of about 6-8 people so we put our name on a list and were told... More

Some of the best sushi in town. A great way to spend a mother's day evening. Been here before and this visit was no different. Sushi is tasty and obviously fresh. In a city full of sushi joints this one really stands out.!

Love love love the sushi! Tastes so fresh! If you're pressed for time during lunch don't bother, there's always a line up. I usually call ahead to preorder and take out on my break. It's a hidden gem in kerrisdale. Must try!
