Kitstaya Sushi serves no frills sushi in Kitsilano.
They changed their name from Kitsalano Sushi about a year ago after they got caught with some HST cheating scandal. It's basically the same restaurant with a new name but they do say on the front of the menu that they are not associated with the old restaurant and will not honour any of their coupons. Order their basic box special. Terriyaki chicken was just ok, a bit too overcooked, served over rice. Tempura was average with the dipping sauce a bit on the salty side, cali rolls were bad (too much rice). Ordered some salmon sushi and they give you a choice of farmed or wild which was good. A bit more for wild, tuna sushi was good as well. Rice was a bit thick and not formed as well. Overall, just Ok food. Service was quick and decent. Place is nice. Would return for some quick cheap sushi.
There might be worst sushi joints in Vancouver, but this is the worst one I've experienced. Not only are the front-of-house staff rude, the place is dirty and the food is awful. Sure it's cheap and quick, but it's food is disgusting and the "fish" questionable. I've never seen so much crappy, unseasoned rice packed on my rolls and literally tossed into the containers. My three-year old could produce better rolls. Pay a few extra dollars and get a considerable better product and experience a few blocks in on Dunbar and West 16th at Dunbar Sushi. You'll thank me.
