Daughter requested sushi platters for her birthday party and the ones from here were amazing, finished off with an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen

I would not have tried this very nondescript restaurant but for a recommendation from an Australian couple that I met on a day tour. It can get busy, but the service is quick and takeout is an option. My only regret is that I did not try the a role with black rice.

The first time I went to this place was last summer and I loved the sushi with black rice. I went back this week and still liked the sushi but felt that it wasn't as good as my last visit. Don't get me wrong - it's good sushi, but I just wasn't blown away this time around. Location: Vancouver's West... More

This is one of those little sushi spots dotting Denman Avenue. We stopped in for a few sushi rolls for a quick and inexpensive lunch and it did the trick. Service was very prompt – we had barely sat down before we were served a pot of tea.

The sushi is priced well and they have quite a few options on their menus. For those who are super healthy they also offer black rice. The service is horrible though. The waitresses are not friendly at all and never come to check up on even when it's not busy. I live in the neighbourhood and always pop in for... More

The food here is great. Sushi was awesome and fresh. The service was great only when they came around which wasn't very often. But a great place and nice atmosphere.

Went here and enjoyed it. We ordered the chicken teriyaki and a bunch of different rolls to share. The rolls were delicious! It's a pretty small place so some people had to wait in line but its worth it. Ill be going back again

This place is very small and the decor is not a priority for the owners. It has a diner kind of feel, even though the tables are spread out in the room. However, the food is fantastic, the service excellent and the cost extremely reasonable!! We ordered a variety of vegetable sushi and it was excellent. We paid cash -... More

The dynamite roll that Akira sushi makes is superb. The fish is always fresh and you can order black rice on the sushi which creates a wonderful nutty texture.

I think the review says it all. I went here for take out. I used my credit card to pay. I attempted to finalize the charge without a tip and the machine would not accept the charge. I then informed the server and received an entitled "no tip?" In response. Entitled rude service. You are not entitled to a tip... More
