Haven't been here in a few years - obviously never outstanding or barely memorable. Went last week after I had to go to kins next door and was craving sushi. I was on a time limit so I remembered this place had premade sushi ready to go. No more.
I went in there and the premade sushi is gone and I had to order and wait like any sushi place. Strike one.
It cost more than most other take out sushi places I've ever been. Strike two.
When I got it home, I found the most POORLY made rolls I have ever seen. I made tighter rolled sushi at my first sushi making class, Each and every piece opened and fell apart when I picked it up no matter what I tried. Strike three.
I hope strike four isn't food poisoning. Some of it tasted kinda suspicious.
Sushi Go is now Sushi No Go to me.
I would recommend sushi go if you're looking for sushi on-the-go.
Not the greatest if you're looking for "quality" Japanese.
Great prices and portions are okay. However, I once had their chopped scallop roll, and didn't feel so well a few hours later.
I think they do more take-out business than eat-in, but the few times I've been there, I had to wait over 10 minutes for my order.
There is a serious dearth of restaurants in the Champlain Heights area. So even if the establishment is just "okay" - it's still better than nothing..
Anyways, onto my review.
Went here withe the kids and ordered a Bento Box (Sashimi, Sushi) and Terryaki Chicken bowls for the kids.
My Bento box was actually pretty good. The sushi was cold, the rice was hot, I liked the salad and dressing and the California Roll was decent. This all came with Miso soup, which was also good. For ten bucks plus tax - it was good.
What disappointed me was the chicken. It looked and tasted like it was merely steamed and had a bit of sauce glopped on. The rice was okay (hard to screw that up), but the chicken was soggy and tasteless.
The service was good, my son (four years old) went to the counter to get some more water. I was tended to my two year old and looked over to see the counter person interact very nicely with my son. The lady who took my order and brought us our food was also friendly and professional.
The ambiance is okay. It's clean. It can be noisy though if crowded. The floor is concrete and I accidently dropped a plastic cup - it bounced repeatedly and the loud echo was a bit jarring. Otherwise, the ambiance is pleasant and functional.
I would return for the Sashimi Bento Box myself. However, my kids don't like sushi/sashimi, so I will not be returning soon as the chicken just wasn't up to par.
I went with a friend to SushiGo @ Kerr for some quick eats. I wasn't in the mood for sushi since I remembered their sushi being rather sub-par. So I opted for their chicken teriyaki don. For 6 dollars the bowl was really small. On top of the rice was a piece of lettuce and 7-8 pieces of teriyaki chicken. The chicken was to my pleasant surprise very nice and tender and the teriyaki sauce was really delicious. Unfortunately, the donburi lacked other condiments like beansprouts or other vegetables that would have increased the value of the dish. Service was really friendly and polite. I was very impressed. I would recommend if you want to have a quick bite to eat with some friends.
My mother and I decided to try this restaurant as the ones that we intended on going to were closed. The decor was bare with a couple of tables and chairs, but was roomy and clean enough to be comfortable. Upon entering, the waitress/cashier paid us no attention. We weren't sure whether to stand or sit. Apparently, it wasn't a regular restaurant where one would sit and the waitress come to take one's order. We had to order and pay at the counter before sitting down like it was fast food restaurant. The only service the waitress/cashier offered was bring the food to us. Tea and water were self-served.
The food was bleh. As my mother said, "I could have made them better myself." Not only were the rolls poorly rolled, the filling was dry and bland. The rolls were terribly tiny, or maybe I was just used to the huge portions at my usual sushi place. The rolls definitely weren't worth the price. You can easily get them bigger, cheaper AND tastier at the same time elsewhere. With approximately 9 million other sushi restaurants in Vancouver, I will definitely not be coming back.
decided to try this place after passing it on kerr st several times. wait time was ok considering there were people coming in and out fairly steadily. sushi was just ok, nothing spectacular.
my food was left for the person at the front counter to finish off.....asking if i wanted sesame seeds on it etc......i was fine with that. then she asked if i wanted the pickled ginger......sure, why not. then i noticed her using her fingers to take it off the spoon and into my order. same fingers she had just finished handling cash with and dealing with customers at front counter. wasn't impressed. needless to say i didn't eat that part of it.
there's enough sushi joints in town that i won't miss not going to this one.
A bunch of co-workers go here indicating that the place served okay food. Stayed late at work one night and though i would give it a try. Suffice to say, was not a good experience. The service is bearable for a "Japanese" restaurant - however, it was the food that did it in for me. Salmon and tuna were not fresh, the dynamite rolls were aweful. Didn't mind the scallop rolls. Overall, would not recommend the place.
Though it's not always the case, i should have known better based on the price as the food was relatively inexpensive. Spend a bit more and go somewhere "fresher" - your stomach will thank you.
