Excellent value

This is our favourite neighbourhood sushi house. The food is authentic and excellent. We also use the take away and are never disappointed.

A nice sushi experience in a vibrant Kerrisdale location serving up what is always a good meal unfortunately hampered by mediocre service. No particular dishes stand out as exemplary and there are decidedly many other superior sushi restaurants abound. With that said, Shota has a nice atmosphere supported by a convenient location and decent Japanese food that stands out above... More

I have written to the owner but have received no reply. I told her I was going to comment on Trip Advisor and I request a reply and a refund. The food was passable though bland. It was the service that was abominable. Some young guy with absolutely no personality served us. We waited 25 minutes until he took our... More

The place is spacious and the menu is extensive but the food is mediocre at best. It's more about quantity than quality. The rolls are massive yet uninteresting. I had a soft shell crab don and the crab was fishy and chewy. My partner had the Hamachi bento box and although there was a good variety in her bento, it's... More

An early evening dinner with my daughter. Her choice for sushi my choice for a location close to home. A wide range of both traditional japanese meals with many modern interpretations such as Tropical Mango Sushi. We loved the new place settings with sushi images on the plates and tea cups. The range of family sizes and mixes attests to... More

On a business trip in Vancouver, I decided to treat myself to a nice meal one evening. Shota is a Japanese restaurant in the popular Kerisdale neighbourhood in Vancouver. I made the assumption that a restaurant in this area would offer excellent Japanese fare. I was wrong. I had the prawn teriyaki main. It was completely ordinary and virtually tasteless.... More

It was our daughter' s b- day so decided she would like sushi, so went on a Saturday evening without reservations. The menu had a good selection of choices and found prices higher than a lot of Japanese restaurants. Recently came back from Tokyo in the summer so I found the smaller size sushi quite authentic, although a few reviews... More

We were in the area and asked if we could have an early reservation for eight people and a baby which was perfectly accommodated in a nice quit corner of the restaurant. We have been to Shota many times and the food is always excellent. The variety of the fish, the variety and innovative quality of the rolls, and the... More
