It really is that good!

I used to live in Tokyo and having moved to Vancouver about 20 years ago I also have had my share of good sushi in BC. This is as good as it gets. Simple as that. Go there and I promise you will find it is another level above other Vancouver area sushi restaurants. I have not had the hot... read more

I was told to take my 13 month old out of the restaurant after couple minutes she started crying. We were trying to calm her during the time. We would much appreciate if we were told babies are not welcomed before we were seated. I would say it's not a place even for small kids because there can still be... More

Just a nice evening out for some Japanese food and we chose one of our favourite sushi places. After this evening's meal it is our #1 choice for Japanese/sushi on the North Shore. Simply outstanding food, and I firmly believe you get that from Japanese staff in a Japanese restaurant. Many other similar places seem to be run by non... More

If you love sushi you have to come here. Tak is the best, I've been coming here for 13 years and he always greets us by name, his wife remembers us too. The food is beyond compare for sushi, he uses real crab which is already one bonus, but the care and detail Tak puts into the food is wonderful.... More

We ate our way through several sections of the menu and everything was amazing. A few of our favorites were the: - Kakuni (pork shoulder) this was tender and tasty - There is a deep fried cream shrimp which was over the top, we ordered a second round of this one. - Baked oyster was another crowd please We will...

I have been eating at Yohachi Sushi since it opened (approximately 15 years ago?). Well worth the trip over the bridge from downtown every time. Get a seat at the bar where the owner and sushi chef, Tak, will keep you entertained and well fed. There is always a good variety of amazingly fresh and well prepared ingredients but it... More

I tried Shabu Shabu (a Japanese hotpot dish) tonight. Really nice food accompanied with sake. The restaurant has recently been refurbished and is very warm with nice lighting. As always the service was excellent. I continue to be impressed with this gem of a place right on my doorstep. I encourage you to try it when in North vancouver.

My boyfriend and I have been going here for many years and have never had an average meal. The food is always super fresh and the simple combinations of ingredients have incredible taste. No McSushi rolls here, just authentic and traditional offerings from an amazing chef (Tak), who is an absolute joy to watch (recommend sitting at the bar). Some... More

A genuine Japanese restaurant offering a very good selection of delicious freshly prepared food. Excellent attentive service and very reasonably priced. The only disappointment was the poor house wine, but the food made up for it. You won't be disappointed dining here.
