Small resturant across the street of Oakridge along the Cambie side. The rolls are huge and filled with mayo in the cali rolls and some are near impossible to all fit in your mouth. The resturant itself is not a service resturant. you order and then sit down if there is space

My favourite sushi. Great value. Big chunks of sashimi, and huge rolls. The only negative is that they put too much rice on the rolls and the sushi, but not a biggie as it's easily removed. Not the best for eating in as space is limited but most of the time I'm getting take-out (as it seems do most customers... More

Recommended by our air b&b host we weren't sure what to expect. Small place with limited seating but so worth a visit. Food was fresh and delicious, really good value and the portions were HUGE. I had salmon sashimi and was served almost a whole salmon (that's what it felt like!) service was good and we went twice during a... More

This is probably the best sushi restaurant in Vancouver. The prices are cheap and the portions are big. Because the restaurant is very small, the lines occasionally go out the door. The wait is definitely worth it though. It is 6.50 for 5 pieces of salmon sashimi and just 3.50 for 6 California rolls that are two times the normal... More

Cash only, it's warm in there. Good value in the Oakridge area. Only a couple of seats, if the weather is nice I recommend walking 1 block east to Columbia Park to eat the food there. If it's raining, take the food to-go and eat it in the Oakridge food court. Free serve yourself tea.

Three of us went for supper. We ordered 3 California rolls, 3 Vancouver rolls (California with smoked salmon.....yum), 2 tempura prawn rolls and 1 other (sorry, can't remember what it was). Total came to $35 and we had WAY too much food. It would have been enough for at least another full meal. The food was great! It's a small... More

We frequently take-out from this restaurant. Pros: The food portions are very large and we always order the house roll. Cons: There has been a few mix-ups (twice out of ~12 orders) with the food we ordered. I.e. We ordered Unagi Roll (Eel), but received some other roll in the box. I always recommend double checking your order in the... More

They serve you a lot of food and the prices are fair. It's cash only!! However the quality wasn't that great. I got chicken teriyaki don and spicy tuna roll I through half of it out. Not the greatest joint in the area. Although not a lot of options around.

Great sushi at a very cheap price. We could not ask for a better local experience. Food was excellent.

I have been a regular at Samurai for over 12 years and it remains the best take-out value for sushi in Vancouver. Tip # 1: phone ahead to order; otherwise, you will end up waiting in line - especially at meal hours - in a rather restricted space. Even a 20-minute lead makes a huge difference. Tip # 2: if...
