This small sushi restaurant was suggested to us and everyone agreed, even the very fussy and particular sushi eaters in our group, that everything we ordered was excellent and very fresh. Lots of variety. There are also some menu offerings that were excellent for the non sushi eaters in our group. Prices were very reasonable. We came away happy and fat!

This has been our go-to sushi restaurant in Vancouver for years. The sushi is fresh, incredibly delicious and reasonably priced. Last night everything we ordered was perfect, from the tuna, eel and salmon to the yam tempura and aburi battera barbecue mackerel. The California roll with real crab was superb. We kept ordering until it was impossible to considert another thing, even the homemade black sesame ice cream, a mere $2.50. We have lived in Japan and find the sushi here equal to the best we have enjoyed there. As always, service proved to be excellent and speedy.

The restaurant is a "hole in the wall" located at the end of a small strip mall. Its size often leads to a long line after 7 p.m., so I recommend going early. But if you encounter a line, persevere. The line moves fast and your reward will be outstanding sushi.

This local joint has been around for 20 or so years. Japanese owned which is a rarity nowadays. The sushi and sashimi are fresh and the futomaki roll is made the proper way. Service is quick and efficient. They are open for lunch and dinner but close between 230 and 530. Worth a visit and affordable. Lunch specials are a bargain.

Came for dinner with a friend and was happily surprised by Shiro's quality. We ordered a seaweed salad, gyoza, yam tempura, salmon sashimi and a california roll - all delicious! Will definitely return.

Cute, small restaurant with fantastic food. Check the hours before you go because they do close between lunch and dinner!
Fresh sushi, warm sushi rice, real home-made wasabi. Mouth-watering, delicious, yummy goodness.
Their house salad with ginger dressing - one of the best ginger dressings we've ever had!
Not a sushi/seafood lover? Try the Chicken Karaage - deliciously-flavored and perfectly fried chicken.
Over eat if you're only going here once during your visit. ;) You won't regret it. :)
Women's bathroom has a fancy little Japanese bidet toilet...interesting.
If we're ever back to Vancouver, it will be a Must on the list of To Dos!
