Decided to try take-out at a local sushi restaurant in Richmond called Gami Sushi. The art of sushi was invented in Japan, but Gami Sushi has developed their own Korean style. The decor is modern, and the food is fresh, tasty, and filling. The portions were just great.The service was excellent, and they answered all my questions, even offering suggestions. Very helpful.
I liked the friendly atmosphere. As soon as I entered the restaurant, staff greeted me with a hearty "Hello." And when parting the premises, a cheerful "Good-bye." Just crazy, Gami Korean sushi 10% off take-out. I must try dining-in.
After I read those two reviews posted earlier , I and my friend Roger decided to have a try in this Japanese restaurant. There is not a traditional "Japanese Restaurant "that someone mentioned in his/her review. Old wood doesn't mean traditional Japanese. They are Korean. But I am not a person who think only Japanese people can make a good Japanese cuisine. Anyone can do it if they are well trained.
Don't expect too high for the taste, sushi rice is too sweet, Korean style spicy sauce that is not well match sashimi.. Too much sauce for the roll.
If the price is the most considerable for you, better to go before 20% off promotion end, after that everywhere is the same (Korean Japanese)
New Japanese restaurant opened in Broadmoor by RBC bank. Don't be deceived by its new opening, it was quite busy when I came in during dinnertime with my brother. We were seated quickly and given menus to look at. The menu was intriguing and the ambiance was enticing. Most of their decor were of old looking, but it was of Japanese tradition. We ordered the salmon and tuna nigiri and the bc roll. When the food arrived, I was surprised to see the salmon nigiri were long-cuts of fresh pink salmon and the tuna had a lively colour, unlike most cheaper Japanese restaurants. The sushi rice used to make both the rolls and the nigiri were somewhat bland though, I guess that's what happens when MSG is not used in food. However, I would much rather prefer a meal without MSG than with it. After finishing our meals, we were full and content and the bill totaled to $30.24 with its current 20% discount. Most of my trips out to sushi restaurants would amount to about 50-60 dollars a person. Gami sushi is definitely worth a try if you're looking for decent food for a cheap price.
Great experience at this brand new joint! Menu has enticing items like coconut crusted tuna, shrimp gyoza, spicy pork gyoza, lobster motoyaki, and a great selection of specialty rolls. The highlight of the night was the okonomiyaki (Japanese savory pancake)- filled with shrimp, mussels, and tender squid. Came to table cooked in a sizzling cast iron plate. Tempura was fresh and light. The accompanying sauce was so much better than the usual bland stuff. Decor is lovely. Service was extremely friendly, although I hope more attention to detail will be paid once they've been open longer. This will definitely become a neighbourhood favourite
