Food: Not what you would call authentic, but it's delicious!!! It's the same stuff as the other Sushi King on West Boulevard, and similar to Samurai Sushi House on Cambie Street. Everything's fresh, and you can tell because they have so many customers!
Service: Waitresses were very nice. Food came quickly.
Value: LOVE the value! I ordered half a house roll ($5.50) and was sooo full after 4 pieces I could hardly finish the last piece. The rolls are really quite ginormous! And they don't skimp on the raw fish in the house rolls either. It's like sashimi + california roll filling fitted into a giant roll!
Ambiance: Clean, but not pretty. Looks a bit outdated. Washroom seemed clean, but it was a bit ..dingy. I don't mind sitting in the restaurant, but would do take out next time.
I'd DEFINITELY return!!!!!!
I was craving sushi and when I saw a review for this place on the DH website I decided to give it a try. Mrs. C and I had a little trouble finding the place at first, as it doesn't exactly stand out.
The inside was nice and clean if a bit plain. The servers were extremely friendly and my tea cup was kept full. The prices seemed a little expensive until I saw the size of the rolls. WOW, they are huge!
We had the tuna combo, a tuna/salmon plate and a beef teriyaki roll. The size of the pieces was ginormous, but the flavour was all there. I recommend the spicy tuna roll. I also recommend not placing a big order until you see the size of the sushi ;)
Overall a tasty experience, but I have to say I prefer my sushi a little smaller.
Went here with my family yesterday for lunch. We had made reservations. We arrived with the table already setup for us.
I noticed that all table settings were of the disposable kind - Chopstick, wasabi saucers and even the Bento Box containers. I would have like to see the "Eat in" settings to be more the permanent type. The restaurant is more the "Take out type" and accepted payment is Cash Only.
We all ordered a variety of choices, from Bento Boxes to California Rolls, to Noodles in soup. I would say the Bento Boxes are smaller than the other locations, such as Risty's and Komo Sushi. THe the quality is about the same and the price is the same.
With all the different locations here on Granville Street, this places fits right in as one of those places I would go back to for some inexpensive sushi/noodles.
I've been frequenting Sushi King for the last couple months now, and can honestly say that this place is a gem!
The food is really tasty (I especially enjoy their udon and ramen dishes) and generous. The portions are HUGE, but not at the expense of the quality. I've had everything here from the rolls, sashimi, gyoza, tempera..I could go on.
The service is excellent. The waitresses are very attentive and polite. And if you order take out, they're always quick and accurate.
The value is spectacular! Generous portions at low prices.
The ambiance is much nicer than other sushi places at competitive prices. The restaurant is very clean as well.
I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good sushi at reasonable prices!
I had never heard of this place before until I recently went with a friend. It was pretty busy but understable since it was lunch hour. I looked around and most people were having noodle soups. The sushi rolls were HUGE, not as big as samurai but still large portions. Had a maki combo that came with salmon, tuna and california rolls for $6.50. I couldn't even finish it all. I'm not sure if the sushi chefs are japanese or not. The waitresses definitely were not and they were friendly but just a tad slow. All in all, would definitely go back for cheap eats.
This restaurant is clearly one of the best "fast food" sushi places in town. Don't expect to get an authentic Japanese fare -- you got what you pay for but the value is great. Their jumbo sushi are so much tastier then those of by the Samuri sushi group (another jumbo sushi joint). They are not stingy on fillings. We ordered smoked salmon maki and we did get large chunks of smoked salmon. Their quality is consistent throughout the years.
We went in on a Friday for takeout around 4pm and noticed there were only two tables being occupied out of about dozen or so small tables and no others lined up for takeout, I guess that's not uncommon for this time of day. A large screen t.v. was on the wall in front of us as we entered playing something which seemed ill-chosen for a dining room ( I always wonder why Asian restaurants think that having t.v.'s make for better food consumption? ). It appeared that the wooden chairs and tables were of the cheap variety, and quickly glancing about the room you got the sense that the aura of the restaurant was of a simple no frills eatery.
The waitress immediately greeted us and had the takeout order sitting by the till. She was very smiley and cheerful and quickly calculated our bill. We happily left with a rather heavy feeling bag and headed home to peruse the order. Immediately upon opening the containers I noticed that some rolls were missing, I added up the cost of what everything in the bag should have been and
something was off. Phoning back the same waitress who originally took my order over the phone, and who greeted me at the door answered the phone. She repeated my original order ( I know she missed my rolls, but she was so sweet I didn't have the heart to correct her ), I asked her to calculate what the cost was and she quoted $3 less than what I paid. Immediately she realized her mistake apologized sincerely and stated that I'd be reimbursed upon my return, I told her she could keep the overcharge as a tip because it was too much of an inconvenience to return again for such a small amount. She said next time we ordered she'd reimburse us, in my mind there's no need but I appreciate the kind heartedness and sincerity.
After all that the House Roll was really big, the California Roll was comparable to Samurai's but without Samurai's mega-dose of its MSG like substance which leaves you thirsting for water afterwards. The tuna and salmon were more regular sized. All-in-all the food tasted pretty good.
We'd do takeout here again.
I thought this place was great. They took my order nicely and was ready in time for pick up. We ordered a small salmon sashimi and it was quite filling. It was farmed salmon but some people like that anyway, a generous size, with a decent amount of fattiness. 5 pieces was more than enough for 2 people! Also got the BC roll (bigger than I expected) and the chopped scallop roll. Both really fresh with more filling than rice. I would definitely order to go again (do it as early as possible for discounts) or even sit down for a quick bite. It's not fancy & I don't know how good the other food is, but it still gets a thumbs up from me.
I've been here at least 20 times. The food quality isn't great but you get a lot of food for $20. Their beef teriyaki roll, yam tempura roll (if fresh) and california roll are decent value. I do think that they put too much crab in their california roll. Their tuna and salmon sushi/sashimi is edible but not fresh.
I love this place. I first discovered this place while walking down granville to bubble world. My sister and I decided to try this place out. The service is impeccable, we were greeted by a nice waitress. I ordered the maki b combo, and to my surprise the sushi were gigantic! Especially the house roll. The chefs had a nice giggle when they saw the look in my eyes when we discovered how big the sushi is. Now, I go there regularly with a few friends to enjoy delicious sushi for a small price.
So it was a couple of weeks back, when I was CRAVING sushi. I had to have it! I had just moved to marpole, and didn't know the area that well. So naturally I pick up the phone book. I start phoning a couple of places, I got busy signals, and no answer's.
So I called Sushi King House. I asked if they had my favorite sushi, and they did. YAY!! So I walked there.
I ordered for take out, as their dining area was as if it was pulled out of the 80's. So hey packed it up for me, and I walked home.
I got home, and I open'd the container's.. OMG!!! These are the biggest Rolls I have ever seen. I could only get through half of my sushi. It was so yummie!!
Thumbs upto Sushi House King.
I have been back many time, and am pleased every time!
Sushi King House easily takes my vote as the best Sushi in Marpole, not an easy feat considering there are five competing restaurants in the area. The rolls are large and plentiful and the prices are cheap.
While mainly a take-out location, Sushi King House also accomodates those planning to eat in. The service is fairly ordinary although food usually arrives relatively quickly.
Try out Sushi King House, you'll be coming back for more!
Sushi King House - wow! This place is incredible, it really is. The rolls are huge, I've never seen anything like that. One california roll and I'm stuffed for the rest of the day. You would think that the size of the rolls would equal poor quality but this is not the case. The fish is always very fresh. I ordered tuna sashimi the last time I went and the pieces were massive. At least twice the size of most orders. I was hesitant when I tried the first piece but it was delicious. Everything is good - the miso soup is yummy and the spinach gommae is one of the best I've had in Vancouver.
The ambience leaves a bit to be desired so I would recommend this as a take out place. The servers always offer me tea if I have to wait for my sushi and apologize for a one-minute delay. They always thank me and the sushi chefs in the back wave goodbye and say thank you.
I live in Squamish so I make this a must-stop every time I'm in the city!
Have been here several times, both eat-in and take-out. Premises are clean. Service can be slow depending on the time of day but servers are always polite and pleasant not like the Cambie Samurai sushi. Much like WestJet cabin staff :-) vs Air Canada :-(
Portions are generous, prices are good and food quality rivals any other small scale sushi place. To get better sushi, you'll have to go to one of those fancy places and expect to spend your paycheck in one sitting.
My daughter eats a lot of sushi on the run due to late after school activities and this is one of her favourite places for maki sushi.
Every time we've been here it's been full. Not sure if this place lives up to it's reputation of fabulous sushi but it is good. Prices are great. Will contine to eat here whenever in the neighbourood but likely not worth the trip alone.
Some of the rolls are so large they're very hard to eat without making a mess.
Skip Samurai Sushi, head over here instead. This and the Kerrisdale location are much better at serving big sushi of decent quality, and at a great price. This place looks much cleaner, the fish is much fresher, and the service is surprisingly good (I usually expect zero service from these kinds of places).
The sushi rolls here are usually tasty and very filling. The size of their rolls is unbelievable relative to those of most other sushi joints in town. They don't just have more rice but also more fillings. They probably also serve the best yam tempura (8 large tasty pieces) I have ever had.
This is a great place for take out (10-15 minutes to fill most orders), or the occasional dine in. One slight nuisance is that they only accept cash, so plan ahead.
Sushi King House (Granville) is my favorite sushi restaurant for value in Vancouver, although I used to prefer Samurai Sushi (across from Oakridge).
I've been a fan of Samurai Sushi but lately their rolls have been tasting the same. Heard some good things and read some good reviews about Sushi King so me and my hubby thought we'd give it a try. We ordered some of our staples: california roll, futomaki, and scallop roll. We also ordered seaweed salad and a vegetable ramen. Their rolls were pretty solid and the futomaki was actually bigger than Samurai's! Bigger because it had more stuff in it, and not so much rice. The salad was good and the ramen broth was actually pretty tasty. I would definitely order from Sushi King again.
Sushi King emphasizes more on the king-sized servings. The taste is pretty much average at best. I've tried a sampling of their sushi and donburi to get a feel of their dishes. The donburi came out rather dry, but with a king-sized serving of rice in the bowl. The sushi is *huge*. Probably a good deal for the money, but they don't even have any semblance of freshness.
It's not that bad... Just not a place I'd recommend if you want a good, hearty meal.
I was actually very surprised that the reviews for Sushi King on Granville were so poor. My room mate and I have been visiting Sushi King for the last couple months now with more than satisfactory results.
The service lacks a bit, I do agree. The ladies can sometimes seem as they've forgotten about you, but at least they're prompt. The sushi sizes are enormous, especially the house roll. I've never tried any of their sashimi, but I've heard it's good.
Try it out once, at least. Be your own judge.
