As I was walking up and down Denman Street looking for a place to take away my mea,l I came upon Akira Sushi. After looking over the photos and descriptions on the menu on the street I decided on the Dynamite Dragon roll. The price...More

I was out for a walk and this little restaurant caught my eye. It didn't look busy but it looked clean and inviting. I had a nice selection of sushi and miso soup to start. They offer the option of black rice rather than the...More

I've eaten here many times and always loved the way that the sushi was served. Their presentation was incredible!

The sushi at Akira is very good. The black rice option is a nice treat for something different. Fast, friendly service and good value. We've tried many sushi places in this area and now keep coming back here as our number one choice.

Had dinner with a friend middle of the week. Just picked it as we were walking along Denman. The place is small, but the staff are efficient and service was good. Ordered the house boxes, and they were ok. Definitely not the best I've had,...More

The best sushi I have ever tasted in North America. Seafood so fresh, menu so creative, and ingredients so delicious that you will not leave disappointed.

We were the only ones in the restaurant at about 5:30, but they still took a substantially long time to do our order. They used black rice, which was pretty neat. My hubs doesn't typically like sushi, so he got beef yakisoba and shared it...More

I actually loved the sushi here! It's small and cornerish but the sushi is great because they have all sorts to choose from! Like for example mushroom sushi that I never tasted before but was super good! And they had black rice sushi which was...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
