Definitely worth the wait

Often a wait to get a table in the restaurant as it is a popular place. Great sushi for a low, reasonable price!

Excellent food! This place is always packed & there is always a wait. Also a challenge to find parking.

Vancouver,BC is probably the Sushi paradise of North America as we have sushi hot spots at every turn. But, not all sushi places are created equal! Wait till you try Sushi California just right off North Rd and Austin Ave bordering Burnaby and Coquitlam. The undoubtedly long line-up is proof. The maki (rolls) are drop dead funky with a lot...

We enjoyed almost everything we ordered: the edamame, veggie udon, California combo, yakitori , Gyoza... The dynamite roll was a bit of disappointment. The price was good too: $54 (4 sodas, before tip) for the five of us (2 adults 3 tweens). Things to watch for: we were seated at the table next to the door. Bad bad place. Those... More

We came at a busy time and and to wait a few minutes for a table. The service was friendly. The portions were generous and the food well priced. Highly recommended.

They are fast. Food comes quick, Portions are ginormous!!. Service is quick but not efficient. Tea takes for ever. They are busy. One of the few places that knows how to server amaebi sashimi the correct way. They do like their sauces though which is kinda of downer, but still, its a great value for the amount of fish you...

My friends and I frequent this place often. Highly suggest visiting this place when it is off-peak hours (afternoon and late night) as waits to get a table could take 15-20 minutes when it is busy. I would highly recommend the Alaska Roll and the Bill Roll as they are packed with flavour and still have the fresh great taste... More

Great service- fast, friendly and bottomless tea lol The food is always fresh and the portions are larger than most- they must make their money on volume, the place is always packed so expect to wait about 5-15 mins and the parking is limited but I have parked next door at Mcdonald's without a problem for years

We frequent this restaurant. It is always very busy and normally takes at least 20 minutes before we can have a table. That suggests it is a popular restaurant and quality food. Sushi and sashimi are fresh and generous sized. Good presentation. Prices are reasonable. All the things we had in the past were all good, never disappointed. Must try... More

This location is always busy, but the staff are fast and efficient. Despite the huge line up, we were seated in 12 minutes. Parking is also an issue here. The chefs are Korean. Having said that the portions are huge and it is very in expensive. You can impress without breaking the bank. The speciality rolls are very good and... More
