I believe this is the oldest restaurant in the immediate area that has not changed names in the last 25 years at least. We pop in every once in a while and always find it good but not great. The selection is average, quality of ingredients is good, but we never walk out saying "Wow, fantastic". Not to be avoided... More

One of my favourite japanese restaurant in Vancouver. The food is very authentic and they have japanese chef. The price is reasonable. It is right across Kitsilano beach. Parking is hard to find.

This has to be one of our favourite Japanese Sushi in the Vancouver area. We have been coming here for years, and NEVER been disapointed. I suggest that you make reservations, otherwise you may find ourself sitting at the bar or waiting for a while. Like most traditional Japanese, this is not a large place, but the fact that you...

My wife and I went for a man early dinner. The place has a nice feel to it with good decorations and seating. You can sit along the sushi bar, some private booths or the 2 tatami rooms. We ordered tuna and salmon sushi, vegi tempura, BC Roll and a California Roll. We asked real crab meat in the California... More

I had the privilege of going to David Suzuki's favorite Japanese Restaurant and what a wonderful experience it was, a great evening with the Suzuki's and I venture to say we experienced the best of Kibune. The food was great and so was the service. Traditional tatami room gave a very traditional feel to the whole experience.

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 fresh. Service was prompt, however it was an older woman who looked very tired and... More

Considerng this place bills itself as an "authentic" japanese restaurant - it would be out of business faster than you can fillet a fish if it were actually in Japan. Very substandard service.

Been here for dinner, the settings are very much like a traditional japanese restaurant. Waitresses in traditional costume. Ordered full menu and it did not disappoint. Very good sushi! Price was also very affordable. Recommended.

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighborhood Profile
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 buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
