Sushi Loku offers fresh Japanese cuisine for eat in or take out.
I was sad to see one of my old favorite breakfast places go and be replaced with yet another sushi restaurant... but this is a welcome addition to Mount Pleasant!
It is a quiet and comfortable place. Though it wears most of the decor of the previous restaurant Sol's it is a bit sparse. But what it lacks in ambiance is makes up in food and service.
If you are a fan of the bento box give this one a try! Their California rolls are top notch, the salad on the side (that I usually avoid) was a fantastic surprise! It was tasty and brought a bit of class to the bento box experience (came with beet & darker greens). They did not serve Miso soup (as you typically get with box meals) but I didn't miss it! The teriyaki was the best I've had in Vancouver so far. Their custom rolls were well made and a tasty mix of flavours! The portions were perfect...Writing this review is making me hungry, I think it's time for me to go back!
The kitchen staff were smiling and joking around - they definitely like their job! The service was fantastic! Great recommendations and really on the ball.
It'll cost you a buck or two more than your average sushi kitchen.... but it's worth it!
Give this place a try!
