Japanese restaurant in Lonsdale.
I went to this restaurant yesterday, it looked nice from the outside and was decent on the inside. We sat outside as it was a nice day and there was a nice view.
The food to say the least is highly overpriced, although I expected it to be somewhat higher due to the location. At other restaurants usually the price matches the quality and, or portion size. Unfortunately, this was the not the case. My friend ordered Chicken Teriyaki and I ordered two standard rolls - Dynamite and Yam Tempera. It appears the waitress may have misunderstood my friend since he received a Bento Box instead.
Let's start with my friend's meal $12:
- not very much chicken
- the chicken appeared to be steamed or boiled and then a teriyaki sauce smeared on top (usually they grill/crisp the chicken somehow)
- one entire compartment of this bento box was taken up by a 'bowl shaped' mound of rice...usually they put this underneath the chicken as rice is usually complimentary
- 3 pieces of a California Roll (most places seem to provide a full roll and, or a combination of other rolls), also note California Roll had a chunk of imitation crap as opposed to shredded however this could be just the way they do this
- very small salad (pretty normal)
- some form of gelatin like transparent noodles
My meal $15 ($8 Dynamite Roll, $7 Yam Tempera Roll):
- small sizes
- seaweed on the outside made it chewy
- generally not very tasty
It's hard to mess up these rolls, but I was looking for something more with these given the price. I also had trouble getting the waitress to come over with some water and spent a few minutes waving my arm in the air in the hopes of one of the two servers in an empty restaurant (expected on a Monday) to come over...
I'm sorry but bottom line is I won't be coming back. Next time I will be trying the other sushi place nearby.
This restaurant serves creative Japanese food. Might not be authentic Japanese, but Sushi Pizza, Tuna & Salmon Carpaccio, Spicy Tuna & Scallop roll are worth trying. Also, Kitchen food such as Pan fried Udon (Yaki Udon) was very delicious! Great view in the harbor will work well for business lunch or dinner.
Since I accidently visited this place few months ago, this place became my favorite restaurant in northshore.
Suki is located in lonsdale quay and has a great view.
I usually order spicy tuna salad or tuna/salmon carpacio as an appetizer and both are simply amazaing. Very unique and tasty.
You also have to try spicy tuna roll which is wrapped with red soy bean paper.
Sushi and sashimi were also fresh and presentation was nicely done.
Foods are little bit more expensive when we compare with other Japanese restaurant around, but it it worth it!
Went there for lunch with my bf on a friday. Not too busy, around 5 tables were occupied. There were two servers: one asian guy and an asian woman. I gotta admit that the waiter guy was really good looking! But they need to do something about the odd facial expressions on the waitress..
Now to the food. The food itself was very delicious! But it was a pricy lunch. We had the gyoza, chicken teriyaki, and dynamite combo. The chicken teriyaki was very hot as if it had just come out of the grill. The dynamite roll was big and very good! Sushi very very fresh. I've tried many japanese restaurants and this was fresh fish, but you pay for it. The bill c ame out to around a $30 lunch for the two of us.
I would go back again
