This little strip of Sasamat is quickly becoming our regular eating area. I noticed their deal's the last time I walked by the restaurant and decided to try it out. They have some good roll and bento box deals and decent service. Even had a mini sushi bar. Just stay away from the deal with the yam sushi, yam was not a bright idea for sushi dining, and it tasted particularly dull here.
Sun Sushi, as well as it's sister restaurant Kitsaya, are my honest-to-god favorite sushi joints around. The price is right, the sushi tastes amazing, and although you might not get the best service in town, it's not terrible - like at many other sushi places. I would say that the service is absolutely forgivable given the quality, and price, of the food.
I don't have anything bad to say about these guys, when it comes down to it everything has been up to par. Clean dishes, clean tables, tidy washrooms, and quality food.
My husband and I frequent Sun, the sushi is delicious and their prices are great, especially for newlyweds. Thier portions are generous and they are usually pretty speedy. The service is usually decent at best, having to practically beg for a glass of water on many occasions is quite frustrating, maybe it is a cultural thing? Another thing that irks me, and it could just be that I grew up in a small town where staff knows your name, but we've been there at LEAST 10 times in the last 3 months (yeah, its that good) and the 2 waitresses that have always helped us don't even try to acknowledge that we've been there before, we're the epitomy of repeat clients and get no warm and fuzzies at all.
With that said, the place has a very casual ambiance and they don't rush you through your meal, so we can stay and chit chat as long as we want. The food comes quite quickly, a little sporraticly (ie the main meal before the soup and sunomono) but quickly, the food itself is incredible, the place is clean and up to date, there is adequate parking (and its right across from a bus stop), and bang for your buck is second to none. This is definately our go to staple for sushi on a budget. It's also really close to UBC, so students should be impressed too.
Ive been going here since they opened, and I dont go for sushi anywhere else. It is my favorite sushi place, the value is great, and it is for the most part, consistently good. Quality of fish is excellent, and value is awesome.
Its been getting much busier lately, and the service has slowed a tad...
Ive actually kept this place to myself (and friends) for a long time, in hopes that it wont get too busy... selfish, yes... but its that good.
I've eaten at Sun Sushi dozens of times and am always satisfied. Whe I go to other places I always think, 'shoulda went to sun sushi'.
I dont eat alot of fish but the veggie dragon roll is the best I have ever had. The rice is perfect, the miso soup and spinach gomae are also excellent. I also love the spicy dynamite roll.
The sushi is cheap, service is quick and friendly. Except I pretty much always have to get up to pay before they bring the bill. Dont wait for them to bring the bill otherwise you'll be sitting there forever. I think that is just the way they do it there though.
This restaurant is amazing value. The advertised $5.95 18 piece Maki combo + Miso soup is incredible. Great quality fish and always fresh. One of the few restaurants at this price point that are this accommodating - I never like Tempura so I swap out the Tempura roll for salmon roll, no questions or extra charges or anything!
I just wrote a review for Irashai Grill downtown and vouched to never go back to that other place. Stopped by Sun Sushi right after to get the Irashai taste out and to fill me up. Sun sushi is < 1/5th the price and infinitely better value and service.
