Simple, and always good...we continually return here. For one, it's in our hood...but it's also reliable. always fresh, and very reasonable. We tend to stick to the lunch combination special...about $6-$7 for 18 pieces of sushi. The place has improved in ambience this year and has added ceiling fans which keep the inside comfortably cool. It is pretty tiny, but rarely does one have to wait to be seated.Sounds crazy, but Shima is one of the reasons we love spending our summers in Vancouver!!!

My husband and I decided today to try this new Japanese restaurant. We had read a couple of positive things about their AYCE lunch. We weren't expecting much...as we know good sushi, sashimi, etc is expensive and not easy to find. For $13.95, we expected mediocrity. Well, this was NO mediocrity. The lunch was fantastic. The menu was quite varied and interesting. The service was lovely...all with a smile and very welcoming. Our favorites were the sashimi (fresh and delicious), the gomae-e, pan-fried dumplings, sushi (maki and nigiri), and kimchi, It even included dessert. We ate until we were (over)stuffed...we just couldn't help it...everything was SO good!!
The location of Taiko, at the end of Denman Street (Coal Harbour side) can't be beat. For us, it's a short walk there and the views are special...we sat on the terrace overlooking mountains and the harbour. The inside of the restaurant is very spacious and elegant..and their dishware is beautiful. Nothing skimpy about this place!
