Good value, good food & good service

This would be one of our favorite Sushi places in the West end. The food has always been well prepared, the service friendly and at a very good price. The one negative is that the seating area is quite small. That being said, it's only two blocks from the beach, so if it's crowded, grab a meal and... read more

We ate at Akira's on Denman recently. Although we were there on a weeknight the place was very crowded and we ended up sitting outside with 3 of us sharing a very small table. We all had Bento boxes and the sushi and tempura were fine but we found the beef terriyaki quite tasteless. The chicken terriyaki seemed like a... More

What caught my eye walking down Denman street was the oyster motoyaki. It was all so good. One of the best sushi places I have been to. The price is reasonable and the quality is good.

interesting to see that only sushi was ordered by the customers at lunch-time. The lunch-tray is very good, too.

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
