Kimono is a Japanese sushi restaurant on Granville Street. Another location on Hornby.
I was looking for sushi and thought I would give this place a try. Upon walking in, I found Kimono not tidy, floor was very sticky and had a funny odor, if I had walked into a hospital. I decided not to eat in, but to give it a try for take out and made my decision.
I ordered the dynamite roll, salmon nigiri, avacado, cucumber and salmon roll to go. I didn't have to wait too long, place wasn't that busy, majority of ppl pick up their food.
I got to work, Dynamite roll wasn't all that impressive and seemed to lack taste. I was impressed with the salmon nigiri and roll, was delicious with lots of flavour. My avacado and cucumber were small in size, fell apart easily, and for the size was good.
I thought the place had potential to eat in, but lots of newspapers and clutter with the sticky squeeky floors when walking, not a good sign.
Too many sushi place to try, doubt I will be back.
This place is great for lunch or quick stops for dinner. The menu has a wide selection of choices and most of the sushi is pretty standard. The bbq squid for an appetizer was splendid!!! The food did take awhile to reach our table but the waiter was very helpful in explaining the different types of rolls avaliable
