I went to Ocean with my fam last night for a celebration. I have to say I was disappointed. Selection and prices 'look' fantastic. Pictures of the food looked yummy but to my surprise, portions were smaller than usual and of course then, prices are then too high for the amount. For a wakame salad of $5, I got no more than a golf ball size stuffed with lettuce. Really???? I was disappointed.
Oh and of course..drum roll.....we ordered 10 dishes in total..server came back and said they ran out of Uni. Wah wah wah...understandable..fine..then another server comes back and tells us they ran out of mango..SERIOUSLY? Now, to top it off.."sorry we ran our of garlic clams!" THREE DISHES that they "ran out of." To me thats unacceptable. Especially for a fairly newish restaurant.
Upside to this experience is both servers were fantastic and accomodating. They constantly brought hot tea and even gave us a complimentary dish. We also got ice cream for dessert so they somewhat redeemed themselves. If I could just give the servers 5 stars i would...but i jugde overall. Now I know what youre thinking, "they offered you this, and youre still complaining?" YES I AM STILL COMPLAINING! WE were ALL disappointed...sheesh!
Would I recommend? No. Will I ever go back? Maybe to try theyre oyster special(mmmm oysters). Will I stop complaining? Perhaps.

Sakura is definately at the top of my list. Not only do we get great, personal service but the quality of food is fantastic. Since I am trying to change my diet to vegies only, their selection is more than enough. I particularly enjoy their Kanpyoh (sp?), oshinko, asapragus roll. I cant forget their wakame salad. Normally, I would never even look at these rolls, but I have grown to LOVE them!
Value: Fab Price for quality of food!
Location is perfect if you take the Canada Line!
