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

My sister wanted to take me out for lunch and highly recommended Shota as a great place to eat and a great place for sushi. When we arrived she pointed to the many celebrity comments posted on the walls. Michael J Fox and others obviously had a much better experience than we did. Our server seemed quite nice as she...

My family and I have been coming regularly now five or six times a year for over a decade. They are consistently good and reliable. Although not a top flight gourmet place the quality has always been above average and they make an effort to introduce new items - although the menu for the most part has been unchanged for... More

Big fan of Japanese food and especially sushi. This place is really bad. Sushi and noodles were horrible.

As a vancouverite I come here whenever I'm craving a dish of great sushi. The rolls are outstanding and the sashimi fresh and great. Make sure to try their Tobiko fried rice, spicy tuna sashimi platter, and specialty rolls. Lunch prices are extremely reasonable, 13 bucks gets you a specialty roll meal. Excellent food, a go to for myself and... More

From the outside this restaurant is very unassuming. The menu is large and varied. Knowing what you like before you go in would be helpful. It took a while before our waitress bothered to come and see if we would like tea to start, not to mention any other beverages. It seemed as if we were forgotten in a corner... More
