We ate here 20 years ago and was happy to see that it was still around, however, they did change location. You don't have the wonderful views anymore. Chef Tojo was still there busy making sushi in the middle of the restaurant and would interact with diners at the sushi bar. We had the omakase and was not blown away... More

I had dinner here last night with a large group of people and we were extremely well cared for. Furthermore, we had a chef's tasting menu that was delicious and demonstrated the true skill of this chef! I highly recommend this great restaurant!

Really enjoyed it here. It's pretty expensive though, so if you are traveling in budget, try somewhere else. If you are a foodie, you have to come here...

One of the best Japanese I've ever experienced. Fast and carefully mastered service, great sushi. The sirloin is to die for. Good choice of sakes. Not cheap but well worth it.

Definitely not the best Japanese restaurant I've been to. Portions are quite small for the price. The service was good & chatting to Tojo was nice. The Sablefish with Tojo's secret marinade is the standout dish for sure!

If you can't make it to travel to Japan, please come here and have a authentic Japanese experience. From service to food this is truly revisiting Japan for my wife and me (actually we talked in dinner to go back to Japan!). In case you have been to Japan and miss it, come here and you will remember all your... More

We booked Tojo's for our special meal in Vancouver. My kids are usually fine with Sushi, but it was very pure play delicous but the kids were not convinced meaning it was all a little stressful. The food was brilliant and the man himself was there, I couldn't fault the service just was extra expensive with kids there and as... More

My boyfriend and I came here on a recommendation from a friend (it's about 15-25 minutes by train from downtown, depending on where you're coming from). We hear that Chef Tojo invented the California Roll, and it's gotten a lot of local culinary awards, so we wanted to try it. The sushi was good, but it wasn't outstanding, and the... More

I've been coming to Tojo for years every time I travel to Vancouver from Sydney. We eat lots of Japanese in Australia, every day in fact, but there is no better. Authentic. Innovative. Friendly. I can find no fault.

Neighborhood Profile
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
