At Fujiya their cooler is always packed with freshly made sushi and bento boxes for food on the run.
Fast grab and go if you're in a hurry and this place will do. You only get one soy sauce and they charge for extra and an tiny extra blob of fake wasabi is 50 cents. BURN.
Sushi here is average at best and really has a LOT of rice compared to fillings. The prices therefore reflect that. So it's not so much good value for sushi as it is average value for rice. They have a micro wave and small seating area but who wants to nuke Japanese food? The tempura gets all soggy.
After a day of errands, I wanted something cheap and satisfying after seeing my gf pick this up several times before. It's basically a Japanese grocery store that includes ready made meals made in house for low prices. Surroundings are that as such but there are a few choice seats by the entrance if you don't care where you eat.
While there are plenty of choices, I grabbed the super standard Califonia and chopped scallop rolls. I wasn't sure what to expect considering the generous portions (9 and 8 pieces) and bigger than average roll sizes but the initial bites set me to rest. The sushi rice was good, though you could discern between takeout and made-to-order varieties. Fillings were ample but I did find the scallops seasoned a little too salty. For takeout, the quality is better than some of the dine-in restaurants I've been to. Excellent value for what it is.
Again, strictly a self-serve enterprise though the cashiers will bag your items with chopsticks and napkins.
Nothing amazing, but it's a lot better than one would think for takeout.
Do not "Dine Here". Instead, select the sushi you want and keep driving along busy Clark. They do have a small eating area with a few tables to sit and each your sushi but you are better off eating somewhere else. The sushi is fresh due to the high turnover and constant traffic. The prices are very reasonable with most packages being 3-4 dollars.
Went by to pick up a Cali roll and a spicy Tuna roll. They look pretty good with the rolls filling up the take out boxes. Taste is decent and fresh. The only problem is that they put too much rice in the rolls. I had to take off about 1/4 of the rice. Normally I'm a 3 roll person but the 2 rolls minus the rice was filling enough. The prices for the rolls, $2.95 Cali and $4.95 Spicy Tuna, are good but better minus the excess rice. Also they only give you 1 soy sauce with each roll with an extra soy costing $.10. Unless you don't use soy, there is no way you can eat a whole roll with only 1 soy package.
Service was quick and ambiance for a grocery store pretty standard.
Always come here for take-out sushi, it's always fresh, lots of variety and I think better than some japanese restaurants out there. I also come here to get my soba noodles, yuzu, and other japanese ingredients. There's also 4 or 5 tables near the entrance if you want to eat there. The cashiers are always nice and friendly as well.
Back in the day when I first started eating sushi, this place was my heaven. I realize now that it is no where close to being delicious. However, for the price and the convenience factor, this place is still pretty decent. I returned a few weeks ago having not been there for a while and bought a few boxes of different kinds of sushi. Got home to bland tasting rice and an overall dry sushi. For a quick bite that's ready to go in seconds, it would recommend Fujiya, but not if you're in search of good sushi.
The rest of the market, however, is fantastic for neat Japanese finds!
Fujiya is a qucik and easy solution for fast food sushi. There really no complaints here. You get what you paid for.
The food quality is more process than actually food. I had the cali rolls today and as I was chewing the pieces itself, I've noticed that it feels like factory made food. The rice felt packed in to tightly together to be fresh and recently made. It felt more factory "pre made" sheets of rice. I also had my usual Nigi Toro Roll, which was not bad.
The Service, I find really slow during the 11:30am - 1:00 pm time slow, but for me today there was no one lining up and with three cashier open, I was in and out within 5 minutes.
Ambiance: I haven't actually stayed and eaten anything there, but they do have a small "eating area" with a microwave. It's usually occupied by highschool kids goofing off and making it difficult to enjoy your meal.
I always stop by whenever I'm in the area for a quick bite... it's soo convenient and soo good!
Being a supermarket however, the ambiance is of course very bad... the service.. um.. is typical supermarket.. but the food is good! Great for buying japanese foods and raw fish too.
I have to agree with the others that Fujiya is NOT a restaurant, it is a supermarket where you buy pre-made sushi (made there on the spot though), they have a deli to make your own sushi and they sell all kinds of other products like sushi dishes, wasabe peas, soy sauce, etc.
Having said that...I LOVE their sushi. It is always so delicious, fresh, excelling pricing and if you want something in particular that they happen to be out of they will make it there for you. I also love how on their packages they say what the sushi is and lists all the ingredients in it. They are so great that we go there all the way from North Vancouver passing many, many other sushi places along the way. Sure we can go a few blocks from my house to one of about 4 sushi restaurants within a few block radius but they can't compete with Fujiya in taste, quality and pricing.
I wouldn't classify this as a sushi restaurant, since it is a supermarket with a takeaway counter. That said, I have obtained excellent sushi here on many occasions. They have the usual roll sushi, nigiri sushi, etc., along with a few that are kind of unusual, and they are all cheap and very fresh. They also have a counter filled with lots of raw seafood, in case you want a big piece of octopus or tuna to take home.
if you want to do it yourself, you can buy all the ingredients to make your own sushi. I have tried, but I can't equal the ready made stuff here.
A great place to pick up a party tray, or just some snacks if you are in the neighbourhood. Beats the heck out of the sushi available at T&T!
I can't believe people complain about getting too much food for your dollar!
This place is an absolute must if you want fast sushi to go.
If they run out of what you want,they will make it for you on the fly.
(they make all the food fresh,but popular items run out quickly.)
What a value as well.
And do take advantage of their japanese "deli" if you will.Fresh Surimi, delicious Ocean Delight Crab sticks,as well as the delicious seaweed salad.
A definate stop for any Japanese food lover.
And stop complaining about getting too much for your buck.
I have going to this place for years...one of the fastest places for takeout sushi...mind you..it all prepackaged. My favs are the California roll, BC roll, Spidercrab roll, Chopped scallop roll and on the occasion.. their bento boxes and nigri sushi trays. All good...fresh and cheap!! 9 big pieces of California roll for $3 bucks..How do you beat that deal???? Nuff said!
Fujiya set the standard in Vancouver long ago for first-rate sushi, and though now Vancouver boasts many sushi superstars, Fujiya remains the reliable standby and sushi-roll model for reasonably-priced, good quality sushi in Vancouver. Take out-of-town guests to Fujiya, and they will be even more envious that you live in Vancouver.
their food are pretty good & fresh. They sell alot of different kind of sushi & other different japanese food. Their services are not bad. People actually willing to help you o.o. i usually go fujiya sometimes for lunch. Cause it's pretty close my the high school i'm going to. Lots of ppl go there to buy food. overall, it's a good japanse restaurant (:
convenient, fast, friendly. decent selection. definitely worth a try.
it is very busy at lunch time and some items sell out fast. in the evening the selection becomes limited. first come first serve. if you are in a hurry this is a good place to grab and go. there is small dining area. cafeteria style.
finally found a japanese supermarket thats close to me!!! this is wonderful.. they have japanese employees, the place is very busy, and they have all the stuff one needs to make nice home cooked meals that I can in Japan.
I like the market feel as there is always help behind the counters when you need something.
its in the middle of nowhere, but thanks to yelp.ca i found this place
I usually go to the Clark Fujiya because it has the most variety of bento boxes but I go to whichever Fujiya is the closest really :) (Usually Clark). I go here so I can stock up on all the goodies that I can only get at home and swing in for a cheap and tasty bento (lunch) box that reminds me of the ones my mom used to pack for me when I was a kid. Love the donburi bowls (and for $3.95 you can't beat it) and the bento boxes (for $5.95 are fantastic). I usually leave enough room for a round of takoyaki balls as well (because it's like jello, there is always room ;p). I totally recommend this place for you favourite Japanese products and a yummy lunch :).
Good sushi, but not really a 'sit-down-and-eat' kind of place. The dining area is small and you'll surely get frustrated by sitting in a small area and eating your sushi. I'd say just buy it and leave. The best sushi i've ever eaten though, and the miso soup is quite delicious. I recommend this place to anyone who wants cheap sushi.
not a restaurant. friendly gals at the counter.
food is definitely run of the mill...but will fill you at lunch. taste like salty cardboard with fishy aftertaste. Good value on your money. the salmon teriyaki box is my fav.
The sushi is usually good, but not restaurant quality (or even close). The boxes are much bigger than the price suggests, so if you buy two, then you might have trouble finishing the second. They use a lot of rice and too little meat in the cheap california rolls. Some of the other fish one's are good but can be overwhelming (spicy tuna). I'd reccomend you find a roll you like, and buy one thing and a couple pops and pocky. They sell some crazy cheezies that taste like chocolate and stuff. They've got two eyes on the package in the noodles section. These are very good. They have some imported pops which are expensive but are a nice change from regular sodas. The mayonaise is better I think and they sell cheap tofu deserts.
