a place you really got to try

I totally disagree with the previous review. I dropped in one day when I went shopping at Save-On based on a friend's recommendations. The place looks really different from other traditional Jap restaurant in tri-cities. Simple, elegant and relaxing even though it's pretty small. The server is probably one of the most friendly one I've had in years. They were prompt and professional which made me totally comfortable for a first time comer. Food! Ah! PERFECTO. I thought these dishes I order would only appear in Downtown area. The chef is such an artist. the sauce around the fusion rolls - torpedo, snoopy, SOS and such, they are not just pretty , they are also tasty. What surprised me was that the garnishes around the dishes are pretty edible.
Price. pretty cheap for Japanese food. My whole family of 4 spent around 30 bucks walking out totally satisfied and stuffed.
Port Coquitlam 's got a new star. At least for me and all my friends in Port Coquitlam. Now we got a favorite place to hang out.
Like the first review said, you would truly sense a feeling of joy after you visit this place. Not kidding. You've got to try.
Oh and they shouted when you come in and out. really funny.

Great New Sushi Restaurant in PoCo

I was just at the Sushi Shelter beside Save-On Foods - it's a little tricky to find if you don't know it's there, but it's definitely worth a visit! The service there was outstanding - very friendly and prompt. The food was also outstanding - I had the spicy tofu, which was nice and crispy in a spicy sauce; the spicy tuna roll was excellent with a very nice spicy sauce; the Tuna sashimi was very fresh and tasty also. The complimentary miso soup and the tuna tataki taster(signature dish) I received were some of the bestI have tasted. The restaurant istelf is very clean with a simplistic, modern 'Zen' ambiance with neat, eclectic music. The presentation of the food was nicely done - such as the sashimi served on ice cubes in a nice dish. All in all I would recommend for anyone to try this neat restaurant.

Had Better - Not Worth It
By foodcritic81 of Vancouver (15 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, December 4, 2010 - 12:53pm [Take-out]

Where to begin...I really don't like writing bad reviews but I thought I would be doing everyone who thought about going here a disservice if I didn't write this. Was visiting a friend out here and we ordered from here based on dine here reviews but was sadly disappointed. They got the order wrong but we didn't find that out until we got home and couldn't be brothered to go back. The presentation looked good but the food didn't taste nearly as good as other reviewers say it is - maybe they never had good authentic sushi? Worse part is, I have had way better sushi for less. Don't get me wrong, I don't have a problem paying a lot for good food but when the quality and taste is not there, and they charge the same as anyone else, we have a right to feel ripped off - will not be returning ever again!

I love this place

After dining at SS101 for the past few years, I always find myself coming back here. I love sushi and Japanese food, so I always try new places. Every time, I find myself always choosing SS101 over any sushi place. It is in a perfect location. A hidden gem in Port Coquitlam. The service is great, the servers are young but they are professional and attentive and kind. The chef is amazing - great presentation, flavours and overall quality. I have been here so many times and I have never left feeling disappointed! I would recommend any dish with their spic sauce. All of their sauces are made in house - and their spicy sauce is my favourite (I usually opt out of spicy food)! I will always recommend SS101 to my friends and family!

A Great Japanese Restaurant
By bericm of Port Coquitlam (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, January 15, 2011 - 1:37pm [Dine in]

If you are looking for standard Sushi Bar fare, stop now. There is no Nigiri sushi to be found here, instead an incredible menu, with an amazing assortment of eclectic Japanese Fusion. Try the White Bamboo. The Agedashi Tofu is to die for. The sashimi selction is limited to various tunas and salmon, but of very good quality.

We didn't even get to their selection of rolls and cones; that's for next time!

The restaurant itself is tiny compared to many in the area; small, comfortable, yet still spacious. The wait staff was very attentive, and food arrived quickly.

Overall, simply a great dining experience!
