I hope lots of people dine here so this joint stays open.

I had lunch here just a few days ago and was very impressed. The fish was fresh and the portions were generous. The deep fried cheese wontons (which I couldn't resist) were not oily at all, just delightfully crisp, cheesy and almost sweet with the dipping sauce that accompanied them. They have some interesting looking special rolls which I can't wait to try on another occasion. I just read that they deliver too. Great news and I'll be sure to use this service at some point. The location is not really in a high foot traffic area so I do sincerely hope people make the trip to Volcano. It's not just another sushi joint of many, but quite outstanding. Lots of parking too.

O.K. To be fair it was last January that I went with 3 friends to Nu. They had read all the reviews and decided it was worth a visit for a birthday. The only word that still sticks with me is "Underwhelmed". I was motivated to write this review today after hearing that Nu has won an award for Canada's "Best New Restaurant". The food we ordered was simply good, NOT great, as one would expect it to be for the price we paid. Many items were kind of bland. Not one thing we ordered was outstanding, although the $8 bottle of Soda water we ordered was pretty good. The decor was a little too trendy, and as one reviewer put it best, trying too hard. The chairs looked great in the space but were not remotely comfortable. For much better value for your $$$ try CRU instead of NU. CRU may be one of the best meals this writer had in Vancouver in 2005.
