“You get what you pay for”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2011

Cheap prices, cheap quality. They have specials after 9pm on a daily basis. It gets really crowded at night. Lots of young adults go and gorge on cheap sushi. Quality is suspect, but I guess people don't mind when sushi is cheap. Would not recommend if you are looking for good food. It's an alternative to all you can eat.

“Food excellent but not clean !!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

i have the opportunity to eat sushi around the world. This restaurant as good sushi but the overall problem is that it is not Really clean... the people preparing the food touch their fae than continue to prepare food... They ae wearing casual cloth instead of professional cooking cloths... Server tuch their nose than distribute food... Something to think about.. Istead I recommend "take sento" just across the street.. Impressive sushi, cheap, clean clean clean, tatami to sit, real japanese atmosphere, and food presentation ourstandong...

“One of the best sushi places in Richmond”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2011

This is by far one of the best sushi places in the area which, it being Richmond, says a lot on its own. Very fast and friendly service and food quality is excellent (none of that cheap-tasting imitation crab in your california rolls). Lunch prices can be a little bit steep if you don't go for one of the "lunch box" specials).

“Best Sushi I have eaten in Vancouver”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2010

Well I have been to many Sushi restaurants in the Vancouver area for the last 10 years as i travel for my business and this has to be the best in the area. The portions are large, the prices are excellent, the staff is friendly. The only problem were the roll portions were too big for my mouth! Such a problem..The spicy tuna has to equal or be better than my all time favorite from Matuba's in Arlington VA...and that is very good!

“Very good sushi at very good prices!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2010

We ate at Matsuyama on October 2 and enjoyed excellent sushi at excellent prices. Since the Vancouver area can be pricey for US folks, we were very pleased with the quality of the food and attentive service. While we enjoyed an early dinner, the restaurant also offers special late-night sushi prices, making it a great place for a late-night snack.
