Sushi Town specializes in BBQ and specialty rolls.
I have eated at Sushi town about 3-4 times now, and really good food. Very good gyoza, HUGE tuna sashimi pieces, the awesome roll is also really good (although the benito is a little fishy for my tastes)
All in all very good, afordable food. We were happy with everything we ordered and will be back a lot!
I really love the food here. Delicious, fresh, large portions, and~ not to mention cheap. Its like Sushi Garden and Sushi Califronia.
Their service is not always great, but polite enough. Their food is very fast, and unlike SG and SC, I find this place not alwasy jampacked with people, which is nice.
Overall, one of my fav place!
Sushi town has some good choices. Delicious Miso soup and tender flavorful gyoza; the tempura is also quite nice and a substantial portion. However it seems that when it comes to the simple traditional dishes, sushi town fails. The gomai is soggy and distasteful and the cuts of raw fish are often mushy, which unfortunately is a sign the fish is less than fresh. Also, the BC Roll has soggy salmon skin and tastes too fishy. The less traditional options that sushi town tries are often quite tasty. I like the Mango Dise roll which comes beautifully presented on a long skinny plate,. The roll is filled with the standard shredded imitation crab, but with a nice cube of mango nestled inside and piece of prawn resting on top of each piece, it is also drizzled with a lovely sunny yellow sauce, which I soon discovered was a mixture of mustard and mayonnaise...not fancy, but it looks quite beautiful and tastes really quite good. All in all...sushi town is a good option, but only if you know what to order...and only if you don't mind waiting a long time for any kind of service.
We ate there last night. Wow. The plates were dirty, the bathrooms and floor were filty. The service was horrible, we had to practically beg to get them to bring us our bill, even though we had been sitting there staring at our server for a good 15 minutes.
The green salad was just bagged lettuce drenched in dressing. Not one cucumber or tomato to be seen. The california roll was so mayo soaked I couldn't eat it. The kappa rolls became unrolled within 2 minutes of being brought to us. The chicken teriyaki roll had some sauce on it, but i'm pretty sure it wasn't teriyaki.
We also got an order of yam tempura, which was very tasty. especially considering it wasn't yam, but sweet potato. I realize that this normally isn't a big deal, but when every thing you ordered was not up to par, it's easy to nitpick.
Needless to say, we're not going back.
Sushi Town is probably the best place to go to for sushi in North Burnaby. Each time I visit this neighbourhood restaurant, I've always been satisfied with my meal.
I went for lunch yesterday with a friend after class and tried their Chirashi Don for the first time. For $9.95, you get this pretty generous bowl of perfectly made sushi rice and huge pieces of sashimi (3 Atlantic Salmon, 3 Tuna, 3 Amaebi, 2 Tai and 2 Hokkigai). The sashimi was fresh but due to the size of each piece, I had to break down the piece with my chopsticks into more bite-size pieces in order to eat it.
Other great menu items:
- Alaska roll - Their salad dressing drizzled on top of a avocado roll with a salmon piece on top makes this roll sooooo good!
- Tempura Udon - at $5.95, it's a great value and I always enjoy it even though I'm not a huge tempura fan
- Green Salad - It's really just lettuce and dressing but because their dressing is so good, I love ordering the salad.
- Their special rolls are innovative and delicious.
Didn't like their Chicken Teriyaki Roll because they use this strong cinnamon flavoured sauce that didn't particularly complement the roll.
Service can suck sometimes. It's very apparent that the owner has all his friends working there with him so sometimes the waitresses are busy chatting instead of working - very unprofessional. You get better service if there's only a few of them as opposed to a whole group. Like all Korean-run places, they do tend to have that double standard of treating Korean customers better but I think it's a cultural thing and something they don't realize as being problematic. Besides, most Korean customers have a tendency to expect exceptional service if the place is Korean so servers kind of have to treat them better or else deal with super annoying customers.
Other than that, Sushi Town is a great place to get your sushi fix at a great price
so i read all these good reviews so here i went with my family. The price is so so if the quality is good. But this is where it ends. The service is almost non existence. Waitress there seems to never look towards the customer but only at the kitchen. Everyone there has to wait for ever for any tea or clean dishes. This one thing. The dishes were dirty with crusty sauce from before. Sick!!! When i got my shashimi, they were all frozen. Great, if i wanted a popsicle, i'll ask for one... And the sushi seems pretty chincy, mostly rice, not much stuff in the middle. The seats are gross too. I sat on the wall side so it's just a carpeted box with a thin old dirty coushin on top. I sat on better chair in the back alley restaurant in southeast asia. Skip this place and eat at subway down the block!
