Misunderstood

After reading the other reviews for this tiny sushi place, I think the expectations are a lot higher than they should be and customers are getting disappointed because of that.

It is a small, really cheap, high turnover restaurant with 7 or so tables. I agree, the server is abrupt and quiet but c'mon it's the same girl every lunch and afternoon as far as I can tell, and she's covering twice the amount of tables any server at most other restaurants would have. Even then, she still remembered what we ordered after only our second visit.

Regardless, I find the service is accurate, extremely well priced and good quality. The food is on the table within 10 minutes of sitting down and it's hot and fresh. The ambience sucks and the service is dry but what do you expect for that price? C'mon people. You get what you pay for.

foods good if you can get

Fujiya downtown is essential a Japanese corner store with prepared foods delivered daily so there's not much you can say about the Ambiance. The quality is good and the prices are generally much cheaper compared to other sushi outlets nearby.

One huge issue I have is with how the open everyday. The sign on the door says they open at 10:00 AM but you can get there at 10:45 and they have barely started to unload the prepared food from the containers. It always seems to be the case that the California rolls, kappa rolls, and tuna rolls are pulled out first so even then you have barely a choice.

2 out of 5 times i'll go in the store within the first 45 minutes of opening on my lunch break and have to leave empty handed because they just don't have the product out yet.

The food was better then expected. It seemed like they put a lot of care into the presentation and plating of the rolls and tempura. The ambiance was much nicer than other sushi restaurants in West Van. Most tend to have a cold hole-in-the-wall kind of look, while Daikichi was softly lit and much more traditional, warm and inviting feel for relatively similar pricing.

But -- the timing is consistently horrible. The "appetizer" tempura arrives after we have nearly finished our mains (which also usually arrives several minutes apart). When ordering the food the server tends to seem distracted and uninterested. But the quality of food and the ambience do rationalize repeat visits.
