I ate at this place today after seeing it so many times and was very disappointed.
I order spicy tuna sashimi, a spicy tuna cone, a spicy salmon cone, a spicy scallop cone, and a salmon cone... none of which was spicy. Their 'spicy' sauce consisted mostly of mayonnaise and did not taste very good at all, the quality of the fish was not one of the highest I've had (which is no surprise with their prices), and the quantity of the salmon/tuna in the cones/sashimi was a bit less than I'd prefer. Overall, after being spoiled by Maru (sushi place in Langley), this one was pales in comparison. I wouldn't eat there again that's for sure.

I specifically joined this website so that I could rate this place... it is by far the best sushi place I've been to since coming to Vancouver 12 years ago. I disagree with the comment below that it's in a shady location, but do agree with the awesomeness of the sashimi.
I LOVE sashimi and Maru has really fresh and high quality fish. The spicy tuna sashimi is my favorite. Other highlights include spicy chopped scallop cones, and really great salmon and tuna cones (I'm a sucker for cones :)
The atmosphere is very pleasant with the bamboo look, but the service isn't great - depending on the waitress you might be left kinda alone, but some are good.
I've been to Maru with my girlfriend many times and love it... I've tried other places but none have come close so far.
