BC Sushi, fomerly called Yukiyama, is an all you can eat Japanese restaurant on Broadway in Kitsilano. They also offer an a la carte menu.
I went there recently and got the dinner menu. For the price, the food selection is quite large and they have drinks too. The service is prompt and friendly but the food seemed a bit cold/stale even though it arrived in a timely fashion. The tables and chairs also seem a bit old and the overall environment seems like it could use a good cleanup.
I saw the decent reviews on this site and decided to try the local BC Sushi out, twice actually, and was sorely disappointed.
The service wasn't as atrocious as many made it sound, but it definitely wasn't good. A number of things we ordered were missed.
I am definitely not a sushi pro but the sushi we were served both times were bland and flavourless. The rice was stale, the fish didn't taste fresh, and many rolls were obscenely large. Food is meant to be enjoyed and I didn't enjoy any of it.
Ambiance? It feels like a bit of a run-down diner but ambiance isn't much of a concern when going for all-you-can-eat. I did notice that the bathroom was filthy though.
I have since found much, much better deals in both taste AND price around town. Avoid BC Sushi.
Note: this is a review about the LATE NIGHT (930-1115) ONLY
The last two times of been here, I've had really nothing to complain about. In terms of AYCE sushi, it doesn't get much better than this. The service was very good both times I was there, they may have fired the bad waitresses I don't know. The best part about this place is the menu for their late night sushi. There's so much to choose from, and it's made quite fresh. You can get sashimi included as well, and it's only 14.95, which is a great deal. All in all, if you're looking for AYCE sushi, this is the place.
Value restaurant especially sashimi enthusiast! First reason is this restaurant is all you can eat and second is that there are plenty of choices among various sashimi. However, service is not beyond the expectation for this type of restaurants.
Don't order the seafood fried rice or rolls. you will be too full to taste other food at all.
my boyfriend n i went for all you can eat and most all you can eat places are about 24.95 + for a two page dinner menu. this place had 5 pages for 21.95 and the food was delicious! too bad we were so full that we couldn't try the whole variety of sushi they offered.
my only complaint is the atmosphere, it looks old and a bit run down. my plate was also stained with water marks.
the service was great, we just ordered and our food arrived in no time and the waitresses kept coming back and forth every couple minutes to refill our teas and drinks.
Been here twice. The first visit was okay, except when I ordered tea, which was closer to cold than tepid. Once I complained they made sure my next cup was hot. The food was okay so I went back with my fiance for all you can eat late night sushi. They were pretty busy and we had so many people serving us it was hard to know who our waiter was. As the food started to arrive I found I was grateful for my cold tea this time- the waitress managed to knock my tea into my lap with the plate she was bringing. Soaked me completly. I got quick apologies and they cleaned everything up really fast. But I don't think I made a big enough stink because they still charged me full price for my meal. I think the speedy clean up was to hide the incident from the manager.
Overall, The food is really good and the selection is very great and the waitresses and waiters are really friendly. Their oyster motoyaki are mediocre tho, but they offer many things that normal all-u can eat dunt offer, so its good for ppl who has never tried any Japanese food that are too exotic. Do try their lobster and chopped scallop susi, they overflow the sushi with very yummy lobster and scallop meat. I have never tried the more expensive menu, but I am looking forward to trying it. I go there every Friday and I am still not sick of it!
