The sushi at this place is horrible! I eat lots of sushi so I know this is not authentic plus it's made very sloppily with the rolls cut slanted and rice falling apart. I am not sure why the good reviews but to each their own. The rice was also too warm so the seaweed got really soggy. Also the... More

Just stopped in to get some take out sashimi - compared to Toronto, the Vancouver salmon sashimi is unbelievably tasty- so fresh and Akira lived up to expectations. Didn't have much more just wanted a little snack, but there was a small sit down area- not fancy, but the fish is great and I got a generous service for $7.95

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
