I called into applause for lunch while on my way to the airport. The staff were very pleasant and attentive and quickly sat me at the counter. I tried the sashimi bento box plus a calamari appetiser and realised that this was a lot of food. The meal was tasty, well cooked and well presented. The sashimi was fresh and... More

The fish is so fresh you might wonder if they secretly have access to the sea! And to capture the amazing taste of the quality ingredients the Chefs masterfully compose an array of delights. It can get busy so be prepared for a full house!

Unassuming neighborhood spot with spare decor that belies the excellent morsels within. Service was good - attentive but not intrusive, with not far to look for a tea refill. Sashimi was fresh and cleanly plated at a reasonable price. Cream corn croquette nicely portioned for the cost and the soft shell crab karage was delicious. Solid option for fresh and... More

Fresh sushi at all times, welcoming atmosphere, warm personal service! I have never been disappointed at this authentic Japanese sushi restaurant. Terri , Samme, and Bob work with fine precision and talent to prepare their sushi dishes. I enjoy sitting at the sushi bar, watching these guys put together their creations. My favorite so far is the tuna and salmon... More

Applause is a real gem nestled in Marpole. We visited because we live in the area and we were pleasantly surprised. The place has a great cozy atmosphere, and the service was fantastic. The sushi was very good and reasonably priced, as was the yakisoba. Deep fried ice cream for dessert is a must! We will definitely be back again.
