Tantanpopo on Denman has super fast service alongside amazing food and is only 20$ for all you can eat. There's also Richmond Sushi which I found to be quite good.

I don't agree with you but that's just me.

I find that Toshi and Shiro are pretty good. Sushi garden is alright.

Hmm, I've been going to Maruwa probably 5-6 times per year over the past 6 years and you're right, I think their portions have decreased slightly. Something a bit more obvious is that they've also raised some of their prices...

Octopus Garden Good
Sushi Hachi Good

Most of the above are not too$$ but don't expect acye prices. The difference in quality is night and day. I really don't understand how people (a lot of people including my retarded friends) can eat at Sushi garden and think it is good. Their rolls, sushi and sashimi portions are ridiculous.
Are you kidding me? Hanako is like fucking expensive. deluxe sushi on rice is like $18.99 (not that big). Their room set up is like a 5 years bedroom style, cheap walls, cheap seats. their stuff are fresh, but small portions with above average price tag. Its a good eat if you dont mind the shitty home style cheap atmosphere, and u just want some fresh fish

You guys have to realize there are jdm sushi and korean sushi. Korean sushi gives you large pieces, larger than the rice. But usually low quality farmed FAT salmon and shit.

Authentic jdm places gives you a normal 1:1 size proportion sushi, with fairly decent fish on top of the rice.

Sushi Hachi - probably my favorite place / fresh fish, awesome eel!
Kura - By metrotown, beside Bubble World - damn good tuna.
Ichiro - In Steveston, good food, good price

all these are japanese run joints.

If i was going to go to one of those restaurants, i'd pick Sushi Hachi in Richmond.

Yeah. They're closed

Aki in the same basement as Sakae isn't bad either.

But back to the topic: best value sushi and best sushi are very different criteria. AYCE = instafail.
