Tasty, not exceptional. For the price point it is acceptable, and I find their decor charming. This is why they get a pass.

I really enjoy this restaurant. Usually can get a table, and the food is excellent. Tuna sashimi is fresh and beautifully presented. The rolls are great and garlic butter edamame is simple and delicious. The food is prepared with integrity and care. Definitely recommend.

Great restaurant right on the drive. Great tasting food even for those who dont eat fish. Lots of possibilities. Great prices. Always busy, best to have reservations. Great with kids. We have been coming here at least once a month for the past 3 years.

Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises
of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy
counter-culture. Straddling the line between
sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by
students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups,
and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat
