Kishimoto is consistently rated one of the best Japanese restaurants in Vancouver and deservedly so. The food is absolutely delicious. Service fast and friendly. There's always a line up as they don't take reservations. Having said all this, I do think the rolls are overpriced....More

Kishimoto is definitely one of my favourite sushi places in Vancouver. The only downside, no reservations and long waits! I normally do take out which I find is the best way to enjoy Kishimoto without having to stand outside for 40 minutes.

Drool.... Great spot for sushi. It's not a big restauant but you can put your name down, go for a drink somewhere else and they will give you a call. Great service, atmosphere, food and it's reasonably priced!

Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises
of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy
counter-culture. Straddling the line between
sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by
students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups,
and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat
counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which
well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit
