Nick sushi is a Japanese restaurant in Kitsilano.
I ordered one california roll, one chopped scallop roll, and one tobiko nigiri. The maki rolls are 8 pieces instead of the 6 you normally get from other restaurants. The pieces were 'bite size' - quality trumps quantity here. Everything tasted very fresh. The ginger garnish on the side was not the cheap pink kind you usually see, but the uncoloured white ginger.
Service: Very nice and prompt service. Very friendly.
Value: The prices are comparable to other sushi restaurants.
This was takeout, but the interior of the restaurant looked very nice (you wouldn't expect this looking from the outside...) albeit small. This wouldn't be the kind of place for more than a group of 4.
I've been waiting a long time for a decent sushi restaurant to open up in Kitsilano; here it is!
It's a tiny little joint and hardly anyone eats in here it seems. As we found out, that's because most people do take-out, it's not because the food is bad.
I don't know what it was like before, but they are certainly keeping a clean ship here. Everything is nice and new and clean, and they have some really nice pictures of the food up now.
There are 2, maybe 3 people working the restaurant. All we saw was the waitress and the sushi chef out front. Originally my hopes were not high for this place, but we stopped by on a bit of a recommendation. I'm so glad we did.
There are a few items on the menu that are mildly innovative, but otherwise, you won't find too much that looks unfamiliar. Good ol' standbys. BUT, the big BUT, is that they do it right. The presentation is very nice, not just slopped down on the plate. The ingredients very fresh, the fish at the right temperature, not frozen or too warm and a good balance between all the ingredients. You won't find giant slabs of fish hiding a tiny ball of rice, nor huge rolls that are chock full of rice to fill you up.
You can tell the chef cares about the food. I've certainly eaten at more fancy/expensive places that didn't do nearly as well.
Oh man, the neighbourhood is so lucky to have this place nearby. I would easily go back to eat more at this place. Highly recommended.
