This Japanese restaurant is located in Arbutus Village Mall. I come here often when I want an alternative and not eat junk food such as A&W, McDonalds and KFC. But when I want Sushi this is my favourite place. The Sushi is big portioned (not really big or anything) but decent size. They have alot of great specials. I usually get 8 pieces of Chicken Teryaki for $3.00. I have seen other items on thier menu which is a great bargain. I think I saw something 16 pieces for $4.95 but could be a little mistaken, but regardless I was amazed at how cheap the price was.
Even the staff is friendly. The guy making my sushi seemed to be interested in the conversation that I was having with him.
When in the area I always make a point of stopping for a bite between appointments. I usually get the cali roll/spicy tuna roll 16 pcs for $4.95 it's incredible value for the calibre of roll that they're making out of this place - the room is small but very clean - it's always busy but the wait is never long - they have a variety of newspapers and magazines to read thru and free tea.
The owners and the sushi chefs are all very nice. There are several menu item but I have yet to try the sashimi. Like the other reviewer said the rolls are fresh and have a lovely texture, they also are well portioned and the crab meat is slightly chilled - it's delicious.
Dropped by today after a friend recommended it. I was in the area. Ordered lunch special #3 consisted of 1 cali roll and 1 dynamite role for $6. Not bad. Cali roll had black sesame around the outside and Dynamite roll had good amount of crab meat and rice crisipies rolled around the outside. Gave it another texture when you bite into it. Didn't try any raw fish. Will do that next time. Other lunch specials looked good. Place was busy with kids from local highschool dropping by. Service was ok. Order took about 10 minutes to arrive. Will go back again to try other varities. Good option if you're in the area.
