I AM HOOKED. Love this place it's my new favourite Sushi place and I can't get enough.

They have some amazing sushi and their salmon sashimi just melts in your mouth! It could get a bit expensive sometimes if your really hungry but it's worth it.

Did anyone mention Sushi Town yet?
It's on hastings....

That place is kind of new, and it's just like Sushi Garden and Sushi House, but with less people (so never have to wait for a table).
I think it's pretty good.

yah i'd say Topgun is pretty good
Robson Sushi is ok to, it's not too bad since it's so close and i don't need to find parking.
There's a place that's good on Davie St but i don't remember the name now

If you're near Metrotown, Sushi Garden is really good. It's a small place right across Metropolis. It's usually really busy.

I tried a great sushi place called Toshis on 16th and Main. Apparently the chef used to work at Tojos. ITs cheapish and the pieces ain't huge but its fresh and clean.

wooooord

Minato Sushi on Oak and West Broadway. It's in a little plaza, where the 7-11 is... I've never had a bad experience going there. They use REAL CRAB in their rolls. Everybody should try their Vancouver Special Roll... one full order (8 pieces) is $12.95! But you can also get a half order (4 rolls) They're huge though... salmon, tuna, cucumber, avacado, ebi and REAL CRABBB. I've had good service everytime I've gone there. The only downside is that they're closed for a part of the day, but reopen for dinner (I think 5pm) .. Anyways you should check it out

Let's just say he wasn't very hygenic. That's why he didn't last too long. I don't know....maybe he's changed now.

i like kiyo in richmond, i usually go there about once every 2 weeks for lunch. the box lunches are great food for the price. it's a bit pricy for those people who like samurai for the cheap/big stuff

Topgun used to be quite good but the last time I went, it was horrible. None of the servers who give excellent service were there and the food was below average. The rolls were mostly rice with very little filling. Sashimi orders were forgotten or was always the last thing to arrive at the table.

Call it lack of experience but I always thought Sui Sha Ya was pretty good. Being that I live in Surrey, the restaraunts in Richmond/Van are really too far for me to go eat there, but I've been to the Sui Sha Ya in Richmond a bunch of times as well as the one in Coquitlam and I thought it was always good, especially in Richmond. Coquitlam location wasn't as good recently but I went there today for AYCE and it was kickass. The other places that I've been to are Sanjin in Surrey (sucks, don't go there, somebody told me they saw a rat there), and a couple places out in Abby (one is REALLY good, but I can't remmeber the name). Typically I stick to the more conservative types of sushi (salmon, tuna, various rolls), but Sui Sha Ya has never really let me down.
