We were in Vancouver for a few days and in the mood for sushi. Reserved online and were seated right when we got there. The place was busy all evening. It's fairly small, narrow and sometimes a bit unpleasantly loud.

Service is courteous and the food great (good sake, too). The vegetarian version of the Grandfather (?) roll was amazing with avocado, mango, creamcheese and more. Another roll had some tempura veggies on top, yummy.

Stumbled on Shuraku's by accident. Their Tuesday night Sapporo special ($3.75 for a pint) lured us in. Once in, the ambiance was warm and inviting. We sat at the sushi bar and promptly ordered our beers which came ice cold. Everything we ordered from the enchanted forest rolls, volcano, ling cod, beef asparagus, oysters, etc was artistically prepared, amazingly fresh and delightfully delicious. The oysters went 'on sale' for 1 dollar after 9 pm. The wait staff was very attentive. We would eat here again in a heartbeat.

I asked the concierge at the Westin for a sushi recommendation having heard that Vancouver sushi is excellent. Shuraku was recommended as a relaxed environment with great food. It lived up to that billing.

Not only is Shuraku close to downtown hotels, but the price is much less than i expected for good sushi. My wife and I didn't make reservations, but were conveniently seated at the sushi bar.

Service was great, food was too.

This is our favourite spot to go before a concert at the Orpheum. All the food is excellent and the daily specials are always very interesting and delicious. Their rolls are spectacular. A good beer list too. Haven't tried the sakes but the selection is amazing.
