Such a great spot for sushi or teriyaki (with brown rice). A super healthy option in this quiet neighbourhood. Paked on a monday night at 8 pm (consider take out).

Also had ginger ale which tasted home made.

Was sort of shocked that they only had seven tables, walked into the last open table. The options really had a healthy spin to them, and the use of brown rice and quinoa was interesting and positive. The spicy tuna roll was tops. If you are looking for flare and presentation/experience this place prob isn't for you. It has a really cozy home feel to it where you get some wholesome food at pretty good prices. I was a fan and would return. Seems like a great place to get takeout as well.

I tried this restaurant based on the positive reviews on Tripadvisor and Yelp. I was a bit disappointed as the place is overrated. The sushi is good, well prepared and fresh and the use of brown rice is certainly a novelty. And I think this last item is what has people glowing about the place (as well as it's use of quinoa and its vegan options). Yes, it is good to try a brown rice sushi, but this isn't exquisite sushi. The taste of the brown rice overpowers everything else - at least that was my experience with the three rolls I tried. There is many other great places in Vancouver to have good sushi.

What happens when you cross hippie cuisine with sushi, I think. They use brown rice as well as quinoa. Lots of local and organic produce including some great local organic beer. The fish is fresh and delicious. The portions are generous but the prices are quite reasonable. Teeny-tiny dining room so call for reservations. Friendly efficient service. We really enjoyed our meal here!

It was my first time tasting brown rice sushi. I can't remember the name of the roll I ordered, but it had albacore, crab, avocado and salmon. It was tasty and rolled nicely. I also ordered a side of tuna and salmon sashimi. Wow those were very generous in size! All came to $20. Overall, the place is cute, clean and the food is tasty.
