interesting to see that only sushi was ordered by the customers at lunch-time. The lunch-tray is very good, too.

The sushi at this place is horrible! I eat lots of sushi so I know this is not authentic plus it's made very sloppily with the rolls cut slanted and rice falling apart. I am not sure why the good reviews but to each their own. The rice was also too warm so the seaweed got really soggy. Also the... More

Just stopped in to get some take out sashimi - compared to Toronto, the Vancouver salmon sashimi is unbelievably tasty- so fresh and Akira lived up to expectations. Didn't have much more just wanted a little snack, but there was a small sit down area- not fancy, but the fish is great and I got a generous service for $7.95

Daughter requested sushi platters for her birthday party and the ones from here were amazing, finished off with an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen

I would not have tried this very nondescript restaurant but for a recommendation from an Australian couple that I met on a day tour. It can get busy, but the service is quick and takeout is an option. My only regret is that I did not try the a role with black rice.

The first time I went to this place was last summer and I loved the sushi with black rice. I went back this week and still liked the sushi but felt that it wasn't as good as my last visit. Don't get me wrong - it's good sushi, but I just wasn't blown away this time around. Location: Vancouver's West... More

This is one of those little sushi spots dotting Denman Avenue. We stopped in for a few sushi rolls for a quick and inexpensive lunch and it did the trick. Service was very prompt – we had barely sat down before we were served a pot of tea.

The sushi is priced well and they have quite a few options on their menus. For those who are super healthy they also offer black rice. The service is horrible though. The waitresses are not friendly at all and never come to check up on even when it's not busy. I live in the neighbourhood and always pop in for... More

The food here is great. Sushi was awesome and fresh. The service was great only when they came around which wasn't very often. But a great place and nice atmosphere.

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
