“Best sushi in Vancouver”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Sushi is a major meal component across Vancouver and we've eaten at more than our share of the restaurants downtown but this place is hands down the best. Its easy to miss as its a little hole in the wall place with maybe half a dozen tables and a bar by the window but the food is delicious and the service is lightning quick. Bento box with tea for $7 or so in a matter of minutes.

“Stop whatever you are doing and go here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

THE SALMON SASHIMI BLEW ME AWAY! I discovered this place years ago during the Olympics and had the chance to go back last week - happy to say it is still fabulous. The portions are large, high quality and inexpensive. The take-out service is a breeze if you call ahead or order it to go or the turn-over on tables is actually pretty quick if you'd rather eat there. The "gourmet" rolls do have a bit more mayo that I like - suggest you stick with the (real crab) California, spicy tuna, and spider. And did I mention the salmon sashimi?!

“Great sushi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

This little gem is worth visiting! I enjoyed a delicious supper there, and sat at the bar in the window which was perfect for people-watching. It is on my list for must-visits for future visits in Vancouver :)

“Good, Tasty, but average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I have been going here for awhile now. It is always good quality food. Tasty. But nothing beyond what you would expect from a Japanese restaurant. Average. Service is average. And the layout of the restaurant is somewhat awkward. It is hard to come in and get takeout - constantly bumping tables and the people sitting at said tables.

“Great sushi at low prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

Great value and very tasty sushi combo boxes. Everything prepared fresh, staff friendly, fast service, always busy. Noodle / soup dishes not as great as the sushi- come here for the sushi!!
