Great food and service. It definitely has the special family and old fashioned Japanese restaurant appeal. Food was fresh, service was quick, and a wonderful way to spend an evening.

Sincerely, for being a "real Japanese" I would have expected more diligent service (we had to wait for the tea (!), and they hardly came to refill..(!)). The quality of fish (tuna!) very good, although a "vegetarian roll combo" turned out a quite an unspectacular...More

Food was fresh and well presented, but portions were quite small for the price. I had assorted sashimi for $16 and received 6 small, thin pieces. Mixed tempura was somewhat more generous. Think there is better value out there considering Vancouver has so many sushi...More

One of my favourite japanese restaurant in Vancouver. The food is very authentic and they have japanese chef. The price is reasonable. It is right across Kitsilano beach. Parking is hard to find.

This is a nice older Sushi restaurant in the more traditional style. Our booth had the sunken cut-out for your feet - not everyone's "cup-of-tea", but we liked it. We had a varied selection of sushi types & some beers. All the sushi was very...More

Considerng this place bills itself as an "authentic" japanese restaurant - it would be out of business faster than you can fillet a fish if it were actually in Japan. Very substandard service.

Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative
neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture
and poetry readings, its days of flower children and
buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving
their mark on the number of organic restaurants and
