Get there at opening or wait in line for my favourite sushi spot in Vancouver. The room is very small.

We ordered various maki rolls, some brown rice, some white. All was amazing and fresh. We also tried some sashimi, was incredibly fresh. This place gets busy, so come early! Great service

We arrived at 5:15 pm, the restaurant opened at 5:00 pm therefore all 30 seats are taken, it is full. We waited more than an hour to be seated. Once seated, food and service are excellent, well worth the wait. Will go back again, this...More

Excellent sushi. Worth the wait. We went for lunch on a Friday and had to wait for 25 minutes. Small place. Fresh sushi. The chefs know their crafts. Will visit again.

This place is a little smaller, i would say there's the bar in front of the sushi chef and then a three seater bar along the window and about 10 small tables. There most likely will be a wait for a table, but immediate seating...More

The restaurant was crowded when we arrived, with many people standing in the small area by the door. We put our name on the list and were told it would be a half-hour wait. We went outside as there was no room for us inside....More

I have been told that sushis in Vancouver were awesome as seafood there was super fresh. We asked a few friends and decided to go to this place. We saw a long long queue but let me assure you this is definitely worth the waiting....More

Kerrisdale is Vancouver's laid-back shopping district.
In contrast to Robson Street, there is more on offer,
at more competitive pricing and a slower pace. Called
"The Village" colloquially, over 200 storefronts and
one-off shops crowd its streets with products and
services. It is set in a comparatively sleepy part of
town, with tasteful homes and tree-lined walks. Many
of its buildings are listed on the Heritage registry,
