The service here is outstanding. They managed to seat a group of 12, on a Saturday night with no reservation. The waitress was funny and up beat. She got all 12 orders exactly right, including one meal that was modified till it was unrecognizable. I'd go back again, just for that level of service.
The food is good too. The fish tastes like proper English fish and chips. So often fish & chips in Vancouver tastes too oily and fishy. The portion sizes are good (although, they were better before the price went up). There are also a variety of appetizers to choose from. The popcorn shrimp and the crab cakes are par for the course. The deep fried dill pickles are extraordinary. They also carry Dead Frog beer, which is excellent.

Akira is good sushi for a good price. It isn't the best sushi on denman, it isn't the cheapest sushi on denman, but it strikes a good balance between the two. You can have two people eat for about $22. A great place to go regularly that doesn't break the budget.
