This place probably rates as one of the best Sushi restaurant in Burnaby for me. The place is very small and cramp, but I never had any trouble getting a table. Keep in mind, I always eat out in a group of about 4-6 people. The waitresses are very pleasant and attentive. They were quick to take our order when we were ready and refill our tea when needed. Their menu does not contain that many special rolls but the sashimi there are HUGE!!!
So big that my friends and I always had to split them in half with our chopsticks before we ate them.
Try the BBQ Oyster. So good!

This was my 3rd time at this restaurant. I swore I would never come back to this place the 1st time but my friend insisted we eat at this place because she's "in love" with the sushi here.
I admit, their Sashimi portions are generous but I've had bigger and tastier sushi elsewhere. Try Asakusa(sp?) just down the road.
We enter as a group of 5 and the place was packed as usual. I was a bit surprised because it wasn't even lunch hour. We came around 3:00? Service was terrible but I can't blame them. There were only 3 waitresses and they didn't look particular happy. This place gets so much business a day, I'm sure they can afford another waitress.
P.S: Get new menus!!!! Don't they feel embarrassed handing out those ragged, worn out menus to customers???

My gf and I always go to this restaurant on the weekends. One of the best sushi place we've ever eaten at.
The restaurant is very small, probably around 8 tables? It's small but it gives you a warm, cozy feeling when you're there. Probably a small family operated restaurant. The waitresses are really helpful, polite and some of them are cute as well. I hope my gf don't ever find out it's me on this account. :)
The sushi is probably the best I've ever tasted. They also have a lot of "chef's special" which you can order. The "Burnaby" and "Flying Dragon" are delicous!!!
It's quiet, well decorated and some homely. Recommended!!!

I wish I knew about Dinehere.ca so I could have avoided eating at this place!!
We went as a group of 6 to celebrate my friend's birthday. We decided to eat here because it was located in Metrotown and was easy for all of us to meet. I always noticed tons of people walking in and out of this place whenever I pass by it in Metrowtown so I always thought the food here was great. Man, was I in for a surprise.
We didn't make any reservations and had to wait for about 15 minutes but whatever. We sat at the nearby couches to chill. When we finally got in, we were greeted by a hostess and shown to our room. The place was nice and well lit. The food and service however was awful!!! It takes forever for your food to arrive. The waiters were rude, unattentive. The waiter that took our order looked like he wasn't interested and kept looking at something else. When we finally got our food, it was cold and the sushi was probably the worst I ever had!!
Please people! Tell your friends about place and maybe they'll get less customers and be forced to a) shut down b) or improve in their services.

My gf and I used to always come here together after we get off work because it's conveniently on route on our way home. The service and pho here used to be good ( noticed I said good, not great) but it started going downhill ever since it opened 24 hours.
The place just looks dirtier and there were flies everywhere! Ok, I exaggerated a bit but you can see flies on the walls and sometimes on the chilli/black sauce bottles. Gross! The quality of the pho has gone down as well for me. It just doesn't taste as tasty as it used too. They also stopped selling chicken wings which was one of my favorite things to order off there.
Service is ok but if you came here expecting to see some hot vietnamese girls working here, think again. There are none! They have middle aged people, ugly girls and ugly guys working here. Most of them can hardly speak any english. Who hires these people???
A tip for everyone: Never eat a 24 hours restaurant because they are dirty!
