We ate here during our stay in Vancouver. The restaurant itself is very busy, no doubt due to it's popularity. As we were leaving there were a number of people lining up waiting to get in, so I am glad we got there early. There is a wonderful atmosphere with all exposed wooden beams inside the restaurant, and the staff all appear to be Japanese, or at least speak Japanese. The only downside I could find was that due to being such a popular place, it was absolutely full as anything, and was quite noisy. The food itself was fantastic- the best priced Japanese food we have ever eaten (Japanese food in Perth, Australia is pretty expensive). We loved the quantity of Sashimi which we ordered, and it was cut in such thick slices. It is definitely worth visitng this restaurant if you are a fan of Japanese.
