The service was friendly and fast. Conveniently located. Agadashi tofu was swimming in oil, under-cooked and mushy. The dashi seemed to be watered-down soy sauce. The gyoza dumplings were hard around the edges and the dipping sauce, again, seemed to be watered-down soy sauce - inedible. The tuna & salmon sashimi had generous portions. The farmed salmon was fresh and shiny and was nicely marbled - good flavour. The tuna wasn't tuna. May have been tilapia. Whatever it was, it wasn't fresh - dull sheen, rubbery texture - and had no flavour whatsoever. I ended up throwing most of my dinner away. Very disappointing and very poor value - I won't be going back.
A menu with almost too many choices!
We had Sushi - 12 pices, and tea.
All for less than $20.00
Obviously this place is well known to the locals - we were seated almost immediatly but could see that the smiling faced customers were coming and going with great rapidity.
We will be back soon!
Shochi Ku is a regular visit for us, we usually take out at least 2 times a week for dinner/lunch. The Maki rolls aren't the most authentic i've had (slight hint of western), but taste awesome, and look great. Their dishes other than the rolls are quite good, and aren't bland, or taste like the ingredients were bought cheap and used sparingly (their miso actually has tofu/seaweed/green onions, not just the leftover taste!) The staff is so friendly and cute, they always try their hardest to please us. We usually get 3 rolls, 2 miso, and some green tea ice cream and it's around 20 bucks (take-out).
We went here last night and I was pleasantly surprised! We are new to the White Rock area, had tried a few places for sushi and have been totally disappointed (way over priced, too much rice, and small portions).
I have been living downtown for many years and took for granted how many places you could get good sushi for a decent price.
Shochi Ku had great rolls (bigger than most places) for a fair price. Their specialty rolls were amazing and tempura was light and crisp! Service was top notch with free miso soup while we waited for our order.
I will be back..and probably become a regular!
We never dine in as we do not find the atmosphere more enjoyable than our own home. The food however we have found to be very consistent and creative. Must trys are the Washington roll and the Dragon roll. Always freindly with pick up orders and most importantly they are ready when they say they are going to be. Will continue to support.
This restaurant was fairly good before they changed owners. The restaurant claiming to be "The best in town!", is by far one of the worst. The fish is slimy, and doesn't have that mmm that's fresh feel in your mouth. My father ordered lunch from here and when it arrived for takeout it was rancid. How can you serve something that smells like that?
I'll never go back again.
