“Cheap sushi but the service bites”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

The sushi is priced well and they have quite a few options on their menus. For those who are super healthy they also offer black rice. The service is horrible though. The waitresses are not friendly at all and never come to check up on even when it's not busy. I live in the neighbourhood and always pop in for a quick lunch but there are so many options for sushi on Denman street that I won't be doing that much anymore. Denman Sushi across the street has friendly staff and the prices are similar.

“Great sushi. Service a bit lacking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

The food here is great. Sushi was awesome and fresh. The service was great only when they came around which wasn't very often. But a great place and nice atmosphere.

“Great sushi in a small no frills place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

Went here and enjoyed it. We ordered the chicken teriyaki and a bunch of different rolls to share. The rolls were delicious! It's a pretty small place so some people had to wait in line but its worth it. Ill be going back again

“Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

This place is very small and the decor is not a priority for the owners. It has a diner kind of feel, even though the tables are spread out in the room. However, the food is fantastic, the service excellent and the cost extremely reasonable!! We ordered a variety of vegetable sushi and it was excellent. We paid cash - total cost was $20 for two people! Wow!
If you would like a quick, delicious meal with good service, visit this restaurant in west Vancouver!

“Dynamite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

The dynamite roll that Akira sushi makes is superb. The fish is always fresh and you can order black rice on the sushi which creates a wonderful nutty texture.
