You sure they are Korean? I heard the kitchen staff and the waitresses speaking Cantonese.

Take Sento is not bad for their raw oysters. Buy 2 get 1 free, Effingham oysters from BC. Also buy 2 get 1 free skewers past 9pm.

Bumping an old thread
but my friend recently took me to a sushi place near Metrotown
and I actually found the quality to be very good
the toro was top notch, and so were the other sushi rolls

only downside is that they dont have any of the sushi in brown rice.
the place is called "nao Sushi"
Welcome to NAO Japanese Restaurant

worth checking out

Bumping this old thread!

For those in Langley, our go-to place is Umami Sushi on 64th, located next to Wired Monk, where Save-On Foods is. Their nigiri is excellent. Fantastic toro, every time. Prices are moderate. Ex: $2.50 for toro, $2 tuna, $2.25 salmon, $1.75 saba. My wife loves their dynamite rolls and beef teriyaki. Try their "Salmon Skinnies". It's, basically, salmon tempura and a scoop of imitation crab. It's awesome.

We've been going there a couple of years, and it's been fairly easy to get a booth. Apparently, the word is out that this is a good place to eat. My sister-in-law and her husband tried to go tonight (Tuesday!), but all the booths were full. They went to the Cloverdale location, which is also on 64th, and said the food was just as good at that location. So, that'll be the backup.

Also, I want to mention that Sushi Kamizato has become extremely popular. They have also raised their prices, significantly. Most of their nigiri is more than $3/piece. Saba is $3.40! I'm really happy for their success, but that's priced me out!

I went to Sushi Kamizato for the first time the other day and it was awesome. The owner/workers were super friendly and gave my GF and I a 10% off discount card for our next visit. The aburi toro nigiri was so delicious.

Sushi K only increased their Saba because they now get it from Japan. Their success has been amazing and they really do appreciate for all the love they've been getting.

Sushi by Yuji on Kingsway. Sushi is quite nice. I recommend the toro nigiri. Very tight spacing though so book a reservation.

Welcome to NAO Japanese Restaurant

worth checking out
I came into this thread looking to see if there were any reviews from anyone on this place. I've gone there for takeout a hand full of times and so far everything i've had has been great, but i'm no sushi expert so my expectations are probably different from those that eat it quite often. I've noticed that it's usually quite busy inside when I go and that's usually one of my indicators of a decent place.

Thumbs up from me, and prices seem quite reasonable. Maybe someone with more "sushi" experience can chime in with their thoughts on the place.

Been to NAO Sushi for lunch a few times and it was busy each time. Quality to value is quite good and also one of the better ones in Burnaby.

Banzai and Samurai (on Cambie) are from the same company, if that makes any difference to you.

Never had jumbo before though.

I've had take out from Bone Sushi (No.3 Road near Parker Place). Food is ok, prices are reasonable. A step up from Banzai.
