“Tiny little gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

Love love love the sushi! Tastes so fresh! If you're pressed for time during lunch don't bother, there's always a line up. I usually call ahead to preorder and take out on my break. It's a hidden gem in kerrisdale. Must try!

“One of the BEST in Van”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

one of the best sushi bars in Vancouver if not Canada. ive been going there since it opened 14 years ago. For 14 years they have not changed their quality and niche. Simply sushi at its best

“Excellent sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

There are a lot of sushi restaurants in Vancouver, but soon enough you tire of eating average sushi and you yearn for something better. Ajisai is that something better.

Their fish is incredibly fresh, and something so simple as sushi (there are no Crazy Rolls with sauces galore here) is elevated to something more than just food. I think this is what sushi should be, fresh simple ingredients doing the talking without added distractions like sauces or bizarre ingredient combinations.

Arrive early though if you're planning to eat in the restaurant!

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Precious little sushi bar hidden in a small shopping centre off 41st street in Kerrisdale in West Vancouver. Lots of Japanese/Canadians. I'm not a sushi specialist, it's too expensive where we come from (the Netherlands), but this was delicious.
Overwhelming menu -of course- so we tried our luck and it worked out well. The sashimi melted on the tongue, the 'home special inside out roll' a surprising combination of tastes and we'll try to replicate the miso with clams at home! Pleasant waitresses and the total bill not bad at all.
If I lived closer, I would come here every week!
