I've been going to this place since I was 6 years old, and I still love it! Awesome awesome food.
The decor is ok, done in the style of a traditional sushi bar with a lot of wood, and it has seen it's prime but is still a nice place to eat. The service is always good, and they're very polite.
The food is very traditional, is very fairly priced, and comes in good portions. And if you're a uni lover you have to go there! They have the best prices and it's always fresh - but you have to go when it's in season otherwise they don't serve it. They have an appetizer uni for only $5-$6, which gives you a bowl of just uni on top of some cucumbers, and it's soooo delicious! They also serve them by the piece, with each piece of uni sushi being only $1.80, if memory serves me right. They also have some sushi that's not normally served in most sushi restaurants, such as conch and abalone. Their ramen is awesome too, I would say it rivals Kintaro next door! Their special california roll is really delicious too, and very large, about the diametre of a water bottle.

Yum, one of my favorite Japanese places in Richmond!
The interior is nice and clean, a very nice place to eat - the only thing about it is that there isn't a lot of seating - I think for maybe 30 people maximum, so there might be a slight wait. Also, the service can be a bit slow at times, but the attentivness more than makes up for it. They do close at 9 though, so make sure you get in before then. Once we had a larger party with 8 people and we stayed half an hour after closing, and they didn't hurry us at all.
They serve authentic and fresh sushi, and they have some special types of fish that they get flown in from Japan. The price of the sushi is fairly priced, and usually a meal for two doesn't exeed $50 (no alcohol). Everything there is very tasty and it's great getting to trying some sushi that I don't normally see in Vancouver.
