Little Tokyo has to be one of the best affordable sushi restaurants in north vancouver. I noticed a lot of negative reviews, but the restaurant is now under new management and has done a complete 180. The restaurant itself is small, but very clean and comfortable. When the weather is nice, outdoor seating is available.
The service was great, a very lovely couple run the place who are always greeting you with a smile.
I have tried the assorted sashimi and a variety of rolls from here. The sashimi was very fresh, just melts in your mouth. The rolls very also very good. The rice wasn't at all hard or frozen, which is often a problem at many small sushi restaurants, and the rolls were very nicely made and portioned.
Overall a great place to go when in north van and looking for a reasonably priced sushi restaurant!
I dropped into LT for a quick bit of sushi, and as I was heading in a guy was leaving and he said “This is the best sushi on the North Shore”. I must respectfully disagree. The restaurant is tiny but tidy, and the staff was eager to please. The sushi just wasn’t all that great. Small, poorly made, unexceptional. To make matters worse, the clerk who took my money needed 3 tries, plus suggestions from another staff member, and my help to get my change right. Maybe they were all tired.
All in all not horrible, but not good either. Can’t recommend.
I have ordered sushi a few times, and I can't help wonder how they make money, since the service is slow, repeat after me, slow.
The sushi is okay, I've had better, the family that works in there, is friendly, but I can watch paint dry faster, then have them prepare your sushi request.
This place is tiny, organized, reasonably clean, and stop here to order, when I'm too hungry to go inside the Lonsdale Quay.
Order ahead, this might prevent the waiting.
I went and got take out the other day from this place which is very close to seabus exit at Lonsdale Quay. The food tasted fine, the salmon was very red in colour (wild?), but it was smaller than average with not much filling in the salmon and avocado rolls. The prices were okay, but for what you get, you could definitely do better elsewhere.
There seems to be a new owner in the Little Tokyo Sushi. The food seems more fresh, and full-packed. The workers are nice and the service ihas gotten quite faster then before. I ordered my favourite usual Tuna&Salmon Combo and the tuna&salmon roll was big compared to the all the other Sushi restaurants.
