Matsuyama8500 Alexandra Road, #110, Richmond
Best Cheap Sushi in Richmond
Submitted Thursday, July 19, 2007 - 11:30pm [Dine in]

Go there. If it's between 9PM and 1AM, stop reading this review and go there now. You will never want late-night All You Can Eat again.

As much as I adore Matsuyama, I wouldn't go there for anything but their late-night, as their rolls/robata are comparatively expensive

They have a huge menu of reduced-priced items available after 9PM every night. There is far more selection than AYCE places, and you can order off that menu AND their regular menu at the same table!

Nearly every item on this list is popular. It's not the best Japanese food in Richmond, but for $0.79 pieces, you can't go wrong.

I highly recommend trying the Beef Sashimi - You know you're curious! It's lovely and tangy. My boyfriend and I fight over the onions used as a garnish it's so yummy.

You can easily eat your fill for less than the average AYCE total of 11.95.

Another outstanding bonus: They deliver. YES. FINALLY. They have a minimum order of $25, but this is easy to accomplish as you can't get the late night menu prices. We order all the time (about once a week actually) and they drive all the way out to Steveston and No.2 Rd, so they'll go pretty far (unlike a lot of asian places in Richmond it seems)

Kisha Poppo Japanese Restaurant11660 Steveston Highway, #1060, Richmond
There's a reason this place is always empty.

The food is way below average, even for AYCE. The service is incredibly slow, and the servers are rude. The building is nice and big, very clean, but it doesn't seem to see much use.

They have really pretty-looking menus. If that's enough for you, you might want to try it in if you're in the area, and starving. There are so many other (read:better) options for food at Ironwood that I'm surprised this place hasn't shut down.

They need some new management, fast.

Ichiro Japanese Restaurant12011 2nd Avenue, #110, Richmond
Great Fancy-Pants Japanese Place
Submitted Thursday, July 19, 2007 - 11:14pm [Dine in]

I've been there a few times on special occasions. Usually when I need a sushi fix, we head down to Matsuyama for their late night menu, but when we're feeling fancy, we go to Ichiro.

The quality of the food is outstanding. Sashimi is served on ice, and their rolls are so delicious! The Happy Roll makes me just that - Happy!

The only thing keeping me from coming back on a regular basis is the price, a meal for two people came out to nearly $80 BEFORE tip, with no drinks.

Danny's Wun Tun Restaurant11666 Steveston Hwy, #3050, Richmond
Solid actually describes it really well.
Submitted Thursday, July 19, 2007 - 10:57pm [Dine in]

Danny's is a standby at our house. We take the grandparents there every time they come down to visit, and they love it. The waitresses are always cheerful, and are very helpful. They can, however, be kind of blunt, but it doesn't bother any of us.

As far as westernized chinese places, this is my favourite next to Hons. The food is always better than average "western Chinese" cuisine, but I find people either love it or hate it. My mother adores the Wun Tun here, and I deplore it. Their steamed veggies with Beef is my personal fav.

One thing I would warn against is getting delivery or takeout: the portion sizes are significantly smaller than when you order in.

Aji Taro4940 No. 3 Road, #101, Richmond
Above Average for AYCE in Richmond
Submitted Thursday, July 19, 2007 - 10:46pm [Dine in]

I mean, it's AYCE, guys. What do you really expect? They're pumping out food as fast as they can to a usually packed building.

I go here for their late-night menu fairly frequently, and as far as I'm concerned, it's better than most AYCE places out there. None are excellent, it just doesn't exist (If you want good/cheap sushi in richmond go to MATSUYAMA after 9PM.)

They're always busy - Either call ahead or be repaired to wait. Once you're seated, there's usually a wait before you get your first round of food, but it's always hot (their sunomono included).

The service is lousy, but nobody is ever just standing around so you can't really get mad at them.

Far, FAR better than Su Shi Ya on every level, better food, better service. The price is the same, and Aji's late night starts half an hour later, but it's worth it.

Again - It's decent AYCE, better than Su Shi Ya (it's closest AYCE competitor), and Richmond Sushi. It isn't as good as Diamaru, but that's closed now.

Takeya Sushi8671 No.1 Road, Richmond
Hons of Sushi
Submitted Thursday, July 19, 2007 - 10:36pm [Dine in]

Don't let the atmosphere alarm you! When you first enter, you'll probably feel like you're in a convenience store with a small cafeteria at the front. They even keep their sunomono in a large open cooler in little plastic dishes (it's actually the best sunomono I've had; also the first place I had it so I may be biased there. It's cold and has just the right amount of tang). There are lots of neat things here, even Japanese videos, if I remember correctly.

Takeya has a lot of rolls, most of them are incredibly good. I do, however, find them to be a tad dry some times. The Queen Dynamite Roll is so delicious, as is their dragon roll. It's really the variety of rolls that makes this places so special, and so good for "beginner" sushi enthusiasts. There are lots of "raw-free" items so it's a great place to take my parents who are terrified of anything that hasn't been shown a deep frier.
