Having moved recently to the Tsawwassen/Ladner area, we've tried out all of the Japanese Restaurants in the area for a new favourite. Maguro is the best for variety, innovation, taste, quality and ambience.
It is always busy, which is a sign it's very popular!

My test dish is to order Chirashi Don (or Chirashi Sushi), a bowl of sushi rice topped with a variety of sashimi. Maguro has the most generous amount of shashimi and most variety of any Japanese restaurant I've been to.

There is an expansive menu of items, all the usual plus a lot of their own creations. You'll see a creative assortment of sushi dishes on wooden slats on the wall. I always forget about them and order from the menu, then look around at them while waiting thinking I should try some of them sometime. Lots of interrsting items.

The other sushi items we've ordered are always good and very nicely presented.

The ambience is fine, not fine dining, but few Japanese restaurants fall into that category. The booths try to take in a Japanese style with small flat cushions, similar to the tatami room look. The table design doesn't fit with its ceramic tile insets; seems like it might have been a Mexican restaurant before. But that doesn't matter and doesn't affect the taste of the food.

The service is prompt, not chatty staff, but they do what's required.

If you go there mid-day and there's a wait, check to see if the sushi bar is available. The service there is fast!!

See you there!!

I just left this restaurant and although I never write reviews, I was so appalled by the food and service, I must warn others. The restaurant closes at 2130 ( or 9:30), we arrived at 2045 to be met by a waitress sweeping the floors. Warning! But we ignored it because, hey we're hungry. We order nothing fancy. The food was ok, except for the tempura which tasted like a churro. Imagine a cinnamon prawn. Not good. However that's not the worst. While we were eating, and I mean actually chewing food, the waitress brought the credit card machine to the table and asked us to pay. It's 2120, 10 minutes to closing. I can see that the sushi chefs are all ready to go and sure enough, they are out the door. Honestly, I have never been treated so poorly as a paying customer.

This is the best sushi in lower mainland BC! I love my sushi and this is definitely one of my favorites. There is frequently a line to get seated but it is worth the wait. The caterpillar roll, dynamite roll, and woonia roll are fantastic. Sashimi is extremely fresh. They have a nice selection of salads and carpaccio as well. Do make a reservation to be on the safe side. There is plenty of parking available outside.

Not particularly impressed by this place. The fish was fresh but the restaurant was in bad shape. The restroom was disgusting, and you have to shimmy past a cluttered hallway to get there. We ordered 3 rolls, and only really enjoyed one of them, we couldn't even finish the 3rd one.

The tables weren't comfortable to sit in (I even stacked two of the loose pillows, still no good). Menu was difficult to navigate as there were some translation issues. Service was not good- we never got our water refilled once.

I think you would be much happier driving into Vancouver to get some sushi. I do not recommend this place.

Hadn't eaten at Maguro for a long time. Glad to see new additions to the menu. Service was good. Did not enjoy the Tuna Tataki - not nicely seared. Didn't seem like freshly done. Not good enough to make me try it again soon.
