Isami is very good. Been there a few times.
Place by Joyce Skytrain Station (cannot remember name) is also very good. Wild Pacific Sockeye Salmon, FTW! It's more of a fast food type of place. Small. Kura on Kingsway is good.
I agree with Senna4ever, huge size no good.
Soy sauce? I can tell the difference right away. Yamasa is my favourite - right flavour for sashimi. Kikkoman is too dark and strong. I hate it when these restaurants use Yamasa or Kikkoman dispensers and fill them with cheap generic soy sauce, or worse yet, super strong Chinese soy sauce.
BTW, guys, please don't say Jap, it's not cool. It's like saying, "What's the best Chink
restaurant in Vancouver?
