Okay lunch
By bordercollie of north vancouver (268 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, May 25, 2010 - 6:51pm [Dine in]

I was greeted by a friendly server and I decided to order their Dynamite roll, avacado roll and 2 salmon & tuna nigiri. My meal wasn't too long of wait, but I didn't like the Salmon or Tuna nigiri, found it to be dry and the rice was warm. My avacado roll was good, and had lots of taste to it. I was disappointed in the dynamite roll, dry in taste and not very much flavour and I didn't finish it or want to take the rest home.

Glad I tried it, left me with wanting to explore other places.

What a Deal!

Where else can you find a bento box (including soup) for under 7 bucks? I was drawn in by the good deal, and while ambiance and food quality isn't up there (as expected), it is what it is and definitely edible. Good for a quick lunch or dinner if you're on a budget.

Food is definitely edible and deserves 2.5 stars. Points were lost on the california roll not having the shredded crab meat, but just the stick, tempura batter being a bit thick and fried in old oil, the rice in the unagi don being a little sour tasting (I think they used sushi rice instead of unmixed rice by accident). Only other complaint is the skimpy wasabi portions, but they're happy to provide more when asked.

Service was good and while some might give ambiance a lower rating, for the type of mini sushi joint that it is, I think it met expectations.

Not Bad!

Nothing fancy, but it's a nice place for a quick lunch or coffee and desert. Not as big portions as other places, but prices are a bit less and you will not leave unsatisfied! Desserts are the best! Service has improved significantly, and great value. I love it there :)

Bad service, so so food, confusion menu
By cutiegammi of Vancouver (1 Review)

On the window display, it shows Combo Special with picture showing one of the combo which is combo F, $5.75 I ordered it. when the food provided on the table, it was 22 pieces small rolls which is not what I ordered. I had to go out to show the waiter what is displayed in window. Then provided me what was showing in the window display. After I finished eating and saw the bill it shows $11.25. I asked why? The waiter said that's the price on the menu ( which is almost doubled price from what I saw in the window display). I suspect they show a special price with the picture in the window to lure customers in and charge a higher price according to the menu. Waiter had bad English and keep saying it was my fault and everyone knows the two different Combos. Be very careful if you are going to dine in this restaurant.

Average fare

Foodwise it was nothing special. The fillings for the sushi were not good quality and not as stuffed full compared to other places and it looked like the rolls were hastily put together. The red colour seemed to be flaking off the fish in the Cali rolls. Bits of ingredients from other sushi rolls were stuck onto the rolls I ordered.

The yams in the dynamite rolls were over fried and I wished they would have used Japanese soy sauce as the Chinese kind seem to be too salty for the sushi. Tuna rolls were bland.

The service was good, but I did have a concern on their food preparation process. As soon as I placed the order, the cashier started to help out with the cook in putting together the sushi which isn't too sanitary (that's when I started to regret ordering).
