Sincerely, for being a "real Japanese" I would have expected more diligent service (we had to wait for the tea (!), and they hardly came to refill..(!)). The quality of fish (tuna!) very good, although a "vegetarian roll combo" turned out a quite an unspectacular...More

Food was fresh and well presented, but portions were quite small for the price. I had assorted sashimi for $16 and received 6 small, thin pieces. Mixed tempura was somewhat more generous. Think there is better value out there considering Vancouver has so many sushi...More

This is a nice older Sushi restaurant in the more traditional style. Our booth had the sunken cut-out for your feet - not everyone's "cup-of-tea", but we liked it. We had a varied selection of sushi types & some beers. All the sushi was very...More

I love this restaurant. They have Japanese chef and the food is very authentic. The sushi is always fresh and the price is very reasonable

Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative
neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture
and poetry readings, its days of flower children and
