Some people when they go to a Japanese restaurant outside of Japan they want the real thing...not an imitation no matter how good it is, not non-Japanese doing Japanese no matter how good it is...they want Japanese. This restaurant is authentic. The first sign of this for me was the alcohol selection. Shochu, sake, Japanese beer, Japanese wines, at reasonable... More

Having enjoyed eating at Isami Sushi on a prior visit we tried it again and were not disappointed. We had a Green Salad (not too large but just enough to share), an excellent clear fish broth (with, to my liking, not even hint of miso), an Eskimo Roll, a Crab Roll. a Beef Teriyaki Roll and Prawn & Vegetable Tempure...

I was a little skeptical with the unbelievable prices, but I was not disappointed! This quaint little restaurant is AWESOME! The food is excellent, the quality of the sushi was excellent, and the service amazing. We went near closing, but they didn't mind. We had a very nice conversation (after closing) with the owner/sushi chef - he is so friendly.... More

After watching the movie, the whole family wanted Japanese food and we heard great things about Isami so we decided to give it a try. The food was good and fresh like any Japanese run restaurants. Servicers were polite and attentive but we thought the sushi came out way too slow especially it wasn't that busy and there were three... More

Even though this place came "highly" recommended by the concierge at my hotel, I found it to be average. I went there searching for some unique sushi rolls and found their selection to be limited and uninspiring, and, to be honest, the service was rather slow.

I just LOVE the food here. We're addicted to this place. I've been here probably 35 times. I should just buy shares in the business or something. The food has never been anything less than outstanding. They are consistently excellent. Never one flaw encountered in all my visits. The sashimi is ultra-fresh, the sushi is perfectly prepared, and all the... More

Ate here for dinner and was amazed. Sushi in Vancouver seems to be as common as seeing a Tim Horton's on the corner but this place was at the top of the pack. No lineup's, excellent and attentive service and most importantly amazing sushi. I cannot recommend this place enough.

We are looking for a good Suski resturant and were directed to this one by the staff at the Hilton Hotel in Metrotown. Excellent food and service. Some very unique rolls and seasonal specials. Well established and very busy, but reasonably priced.
