A Japanese fusion style restaurant in Port Coquitlam area. Offers a variety of fusion rolls and original rolls / makis. They also serve tataki sashimi (barbeque / seared fish) on many different dishes like salads, rolls, sunomono, and donburi.
I've been to lots of Japanese restaurants in tri-cities but Sushi Shelter just became my favorite Japanese restaurant.
When I read good reviews about Sushi shelter in dinehere.ca, I decided to give them a try and I visited there with my girlfriend 3 weeks ago.
I was having some difficult time to find the restaurant because it was located in kind of odd place.
Anyways, we ordered couple of fusion rolls(one of them was snoopy roll), croquette and sashimi melody and foods were amazaing!
Both rolls we ordered were very unique. My girlfriend especially loved snoopy roll.
Sashimi melody was really fresh and big portion!
We also had some complimentary and they were also great.
The presentation of the food was also very cute.
The service was very friendly too.
Since then, I already visited there 2 times more and I was always happy.
I highly recommend this restaurant and I think everyone will love this place.
I've found it difficult to find quality sashimi in the area, but I've finally found the tastiest sashimi in the area-- if that's your thing!
Sushi Shelter has an excellent chef. His food is not only delicious but also arranged in an artsy manner.
Service was wonderful, waitress was very attentive and cheerful-- even though I was only waiting for take-out.
I was just at the Sushi Shelter beside Save-On Foods - it's a little tricky to find if you don't know it's there, but it's definitely worth a visit! The service there was outstanding - very friendly and prompt. The food was also outstanding - I had the spicy tofu, which was nice and crispy in a spicy sauce; the spicy tuna roll was excellent with a very nice spicy sauce; the Tuna sashimi was very fresh and tasty also. The complimentary miso soup and the tuna tataki taster(signature dish) I received were some of the bestI have tasted. The restaurant istelf is very clean with a simplistic, modern 'Zen' ambiance with neat, eclectic music. The presentation of the food was nicely done - such as the sashimi served on ice cubes in a nice dish. All in all I would recommend for anyone to try this neat restaurant.
Where to begin...I really don't like writing bad reviews but I thought I would be doing everyone who thought about going here a disservice if I didn't write this. Was visiting a friend out here and we ordered from here based on dine here reviews but was sadly disappointed. They got the order wrong but we didn't find that out until we got home and couldn't be brothered to go back. The presentation looked good but the food didn't taste nearly as good as other reviewers say it is - maybe they never had good authentic sushi? Worse part is, I have had way better sushi for less. Don't get me wrong, I don't have a problem paying a lot for good food but when the quality and taste is not there, and they charge the same as anyone else, we have a right to feel ripped off - will not be returning ever again!
I don't do this often but I felt that I should write a review considering I went to this place based on previous reviews on this site only to be extremely disappointed with bad service, long wait times and mediocre food. I do recommend the Assorted Tempura, It was delicious. I wish there was better organization with our food order.. I mean, If I'm the only one who ordered soup, why are you putting it RIGHT in front of my friend? My friend ordered Tempura, why are you moving my plate and setting it RIGHT in front of me? I understand that people can fall under pressure, maybe another staff member would be in order? In fact, as soon as we stepped inside the restaurant we weren't even acknowledged, not a smile, "hello", nod or even eye contact, instead we waited in silence for a good five minutes where we witnessed a table of four being re seated to another table for four to allow my table of two to sit??? It made no sense!? I think the food presentation was beautiful, tasted ok for the most part, wouldn't dine there again. It was a Tuesday, I can't imagine how it would be on a Friday.
