“The proof is in the cone!”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

I have been eating at Yohachi Sushi since it opened (approximately 15 years ago?). Well worth the trip over the bridge from downtown every time.

Get a seat at the bar where the owner and sushi chef, Tak, will keep you entertained and well fed.

There is always a good variety of amazingly fresh and well prepared ingredients but it is Tak's exceptional skills and personality that keep us going back.

Whenever I eat sushi anywhere else I do the cone test to see if the chef can match up to Tak's perfectly crunchy and never chewy seaweed (the oyster cone is a masterpiece), nowhere has ever come close to Tak's, not even Tojo or iron-chef Morimoto.

Newly renovated and the staff are always very friendly and the beer always cold.

“Shabu Shabu - outstanding”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

I tried Shabu Shabu (a Japanese hotpot dish) tonight. Really nice food accompanied with sake. The restaurant has recently been refurbished and is very warm with nice lighting. As always the service was excellent. I continue to be impressed with this gem of a place right on my doorstep. I encourage you to try it when in North vancouver.

“Consistently Awesome!”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

My boyfriend and I have been going here for many years and have never had an average meal. The food is always super fresh and the simple combinations of ingredients have incredible taste. No McSushi rolls here, just authentic and traditional offerings from an amazing chef (Tak), who is an absolute joy to watch (recommend sitting at the bar). Some of my favourites include: the appetizer spicy tuna dish (melts in your mouth), green bean gomae, toro sushi and the negitoro roll--the best I've ever had. Food and service is consistent and high quality. Yohachi never disappoints. Love it!!

“Wonderful authentic Japanses restaurant.”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

A genuine Japanese restaurant offering a very good selection of delicious freshly prepared food. Excellent attentive service and very reasonably priced. The only disappointment was the poor house wine, but the food made up for it. You won't be disappointed dining here.

“Fantastic food!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

One of the best Japanese restaurants I've tried (and now regularly go to!).
The fish quality is superb as is the cooked food. Very nice selection while maintaining freshness of ingredients.
Food comes out quickly and the atmosphere is always comfortable. They are very busy at lunch and dinner is more quiet so it's a nice place to go if you want a calm evening out for some great Japanese food. The price value for the quality is very good as well. If you are looking for big quantity for price, there are other places to go but they won't be near the quality of food. The portions are a good size at Yohachi so you won't be leaving hungry.

Service is consistent but could be a little bit more attentive with refilling tea.

In the end, this is my favorite Japanese restaurant and go to it frequently.
