I have been going to this restaurant for years, and it has always been excellent, but it has begun to gone downhill. The food no longer tastes as fresh as it once did and had an odd flavour the last time I had it

We go to a lot of Japanese restaurants as it is our favorite type of food. As there are so many japanese restaurants to choose from we give them one try only. We will not be returning to sushi mori. The restaurant was very nice but the important thing the food was not great. I had the spicey gyoza lunch box. The gyozas were sitting in a pool of sauce which was not appealing and way too much sauce. The chicken teriyaki was on the dry side and again over sauced. I really wanted some plain rice as sauces was over powering. Service was good but without good food will not return.

The venue for lunch recently — a belated “birthday & Christmas” lunch outing. We arrived shortly before the restaurant’s opening time of 11:30 am, and were able to find ‘the’ perfect parking spot in this small Plaza’s (very busy) parking lot, directly in front of where we were headed.

Ambiance and seating: decor quite stunning. and especially inviting upon first entering - with the brightly-lighted trees, and the warm, darkly-coloured, finished walls and furniture, playing to your senses!

Service: initial arrival table service - receiving menus, water, tea, ordering, and such - prompt and efficient. The various dishes ordered, were brought from kitchen to table by different servers - and each of them showed much more attention to how we were doing and enjoying everything, and our needs, than the server who originally seated us, took our order, and then seemed to disappear. Dishes came from kitchen to table in a nicely-timed sequence and order.

Food: ordered the ‘Family Combo A’ - as described in menu: (for 2 - 3 people, priced at $63.00 — dishes included: Tuna Avocado Salad — Pork Gyoza (4 pcs) — Appetizer Prawn Tempura (4 pcs) — Tuna & Salmon Sashimi (8 pcs) — Yaki Soba (Chicken) — Dynamite Roll — Yam Tempura Roll — Crunch Roll. We ordered two additional appetizer dishes: Ika Kara-Age (squid), and Prawn Tempura.

Presentations — overall ok - but a few colourful garnishes would sure have helped to brighten / enliven presentations of the tempura, gyoza, and sashimi dishes.

Preparations — quality varied:
- very good: gyoza (tender, well-cooked coverings, very meaty, flavourful, tasty ingredients — tuna/avocado salad (all ingredients fresh, and well-prepared - the seared tuna slices, and cold avocado slices ’melt-in-your-mouth’ goodness) — rolls (“fully-packed” with fresh, flavourful ingredients - tasty delights).
- ok: chicken yaki soba (chicken pieces tender and juicy, noodles & veggies not overcooked, but overall, the dish just seemed to lack in flavour and taste — ditto the prawn tempura — tuna/salmon sashimi (barely making an ‘ok’ rating, absolutely nothing exciting about the flavour and taste of this preparation).
- very poor: ika kara-age (the squid preparation was a major disappointment - pieces terribly overcooked, and tough — tea (nice hot water).

Our overall dining experience at ’Sushi Mori’ was fun, and enjoyed — food presentations and preparations though, were quite average.

We ordered a variety of sushi for takeout. Portion sizes were average. Taste was average. Spicy salmon rolls were below average. I didn’t care for the hot sauce that was squirted on top for the heat.
I will definitely pass and try somewhere else next time.

We are very lucky in the lower mainland and have access to lots of great Japanese food. However, I find, too often, if you want to go out to have a nice meal (outside of the downtown Vancouver core) the places are generally very utilitarian and basically a dressed up mini-mall unit.
This restaurant is beautifully designed with great variety of spaces. There are traditional tables, booths and these neat seating spaces in the centre of the restaurant. It has these great tree canopies over the tables that make you feel like you are in a garden.This attention to detail with the design is rare nowadays and it is a very comfortable and warm space.
The food is excellent! The tempura batter is light and crispy and the quality of the fish is excellent (the Salmon Toro was the best and creamiest I have ever had!) There were only three we could see in the kitchen, yet the restaurant was full and we did not have to wait overly long. The servers and staff were kind and attentive and the restaurant, floor and bathrooms were all clean.
This was my first time going to this restaurant but will not be my last. Very impressive!
