No wonder this little restaurant is on the list of the best places to eat sushi in Vancouver. Beside sushi they have good variety of other Japanese dishes. We had lunch there today and everything was so good that I want to write this review because they deserve it. Servers were so polite but not intrusive. Our green tea was... More

We were looking for a vegan option downtown and found this gem kind of hidden on Hornby Street. Fortunately Trip Advisor's map helped a lot. When we arrived it was packed but we actually did not wait more than 5 minutes. We immediately liked the Japanese sized and simple design of the place. I prefer good food over good design... More

Was in Vancouver visiting my health conscious niece, trying to impress her with quality/organic sushi found on advisor ... but she's been there many times. Food/Service are awesome, their menu has just enough yummy items to please the customer(quality not quantity)👍👍

This small spot is special, the food is tasty and light, healthy and flavourful. A great value. It's a bit tight inside but worth the wait. Love all the options and brown rice!

Visited September, 2016. Ordered Dinner Combo A with Sukiyaki Beef Teriyaki and Gobo(burdock) Tea. Miso soup had more than seaweed and tofu in it, which I like. Sashimi melted in the mouse. Sukiyaki Beef Teriyaki was quite tasty, although, it would be nice if it came with more vegetables like green onion, mushroom, and/or napa cabbage. Organic Gobo Tea was... More

Thankfully this is one of the few places in Vancouver where you can still make a reservation. There was a queue shortly after we arrived. Service was super friendly and cheerful. The place itself is small but cosy. We both had the dinner combo (veg and non/veg) which was mostly very good. The options for veggies are excellent. The root... More

We had a night stopover in Vancouver and were staying just round the corner. We had the set dinner, including the vegetarian option. There's a reason it's so highly rated, the food was delicious and the staff were very cheerful. I wish we were staying longer so I could try more of the menu.

Staying in Granville Street

Neighborhood Profile
Granville Street
Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs and watering holes that it's fondly nicknamed the city's 'Entertainment District.' Friday and Saturday nights are the most popular and lively, with young revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping the party going until late. Granville Street, being mostly open to pedestrian-only traffic, has a healthy social life along its main thoroughfares, even outside of its cafes and pubs, spilling onto the sidewalks. The locals are chatty, the shops at its expansive Pacific Centre Mall are trendy, and the whole area seems to be on a sugar rush: in a good way. Exuberance and camaraderie classify this neighbourhood.
