Quiet, clean and cheap. Large combo plates that were very tasty. Ramen soups were hot and tasty and a good size. The prices were amazing and if you whinge about the price then your living in the wrong city. Great lunch.

First impression was, if I'm in a Japanese restaurant, why then is there a big picture of Singapore in the restaurant??? I was not able to tell if kitchen staff is indeed Japanese or Chinese? Usually we are able to tell as we are of Asian descent. And by listening to staff talk, we would know from language. Any event,... More

This little place was nice, nothing fancy, but acceptable. The service was good, friendly staff, very accommodating too my shellfish allergy concerns, as most restaurants are. The only thing is the food had no flare, it was average in every way, nothing wrong with it, just seemed like if they jazzed up their presentation and their flavours ( sauces and... More

DH and I both had Bento boxes - he with the beef teriyaki and I with the chicken teriyaki. Helpings were very plentiful. Very short wait after ordering. Except for California Rolls, we did not have any of the individual sushi, so cannot speak to that. We really enjoyed all the different choices in the Bento boxes and thought that... More

Great place to grab a quick dinner before an event or to take a lunch break at while shopping. I'm surprised by the overall low score of the reviews as I ate here twice - once for lunch, once for dinner - and had great service and good food both times.

My sister and I arrived at this place after spending a few hours on a bus. We were starving and this place left us full. We each had vegetarian Bento boxes. Hers with rice and mine with yakisoba. The yakisoba was greasier than any I've had before and my sister's rice was dry. We laughed that the "fruit" on the... More

I have been to this restaurant about 6 times; always before the football game. We arrived at 5:30 on a Friday and there was maybe 6 other people in the restaurant. There were 3 of us and each of us ordered a bento box. I ordered Bento Box A consisting of miso soup, teriyaki chicken, rice, green salad, fruit, 6... More

Hanging in Vancouver for a couple days with girlfriends and after hours of shopping they wanted sushi. So we set off to find a sushi place and came across Junsei. Between the four of us we sampled Bento Boxes, Dynamite Rolls, Sashimi and some other items I can't recall. Everything was bliss. Fresh and delicious. The Bento boxes were massive.... More

You can linger here if you like (there are some comfy booths), but we use it as a drop-in before the theatre and haven't been disappointed yet: business-like (if somewhat impersonal) service, an ample, no-surprises menu, fresh fish and decent portions. Standard tables but oddly low chairs..
