Terrible Sushi in 604

Does anyone here have an anecdotal experience with terrible sushi or service?

I remember i went to paper rock social on main and broadway 2 years ago. Bought those coupon for a typical AYCE. Called for reservation and booked it 2 weeks because they claimed they were "busy"

2 weeks in, I walked in with some buddies and noticed how empty it was. Literally, no one was there except us...... They asked for our names and I gladly gave them mine. Guess what? Turns out my name wasn't listed even though I had reservations 2 weeks beforehand!!!! Seriously, after persuading them that I did. The old women was just mad and rude 24/7 (even serving regular customers). Also having to wait 20 minutes to get our food and drinks...... I WILL NEVER EVER eat sushi at some unknown place again, or get stupid vouchers for restaurants. *the food was garbage as well*

I wonder... is this place even up?? Although 2 years have past since my horrible experience. Never will a customer forget the horrendous service they receive from a restaurant.

Any other places to stay away??

ill find the name of the sushi place in Guildford and edit it after

there menu is like any other sushi menu, but on the corner of some of the items it say "hot" as in "spicy" kind of a warning if you dont like spicy food.

so using this menu and knowing i hate spicy food i order a deep fried cali roll, get it and its covered in a red sauce, i ask if its spicy and the lady said it wasnt, one bite in and instantly called her over telling her i want another roll, this was spicy, no where on the menu said it was spicy and even when asked about it she lied to me, later i get a normal cali roll and get my bill, i had been charged for the previous roll and i brought up this issue and they wouldnt take the charge off, 0 customer service at all, have not gone back since

My experience at Fish on Rice near Metrotown was far from good. Mind you its inexpensive AYCE so I guess you can't expect much but my sashimi wasn't very cold which made it really unappetizing.

There's also a sushi spot on Dawson is Burnaby near skytrain station that is pretty bad too.. can't remember the name because after my first try I decided I wouldn' return..

Il Uk Jo
Kawawa
Toyama
Sui Sha Ya

Il Uk Jo (in Surrey) is by far the worst I've ever had. I found BONES in the sashimi. Friend found a mini crab in something he was eating. The other places I think most people are already aware of.

Frozen sashimi

are you simply clueless or what... obviously the restaurant does not want to service anyone with the groupons.... they will go bankrupt if they serve the whole restaurant with just groupons. It is a smart tactic since this can make customers forget or simply don't care about the coupons they buy.

If i remember, companies offering these groupons are losing money, it just brings publicity for the long run.... which they will never get for their shitty service / food

I haven't had "bad" sushi in a long time but one that REALLY sticks out in the past couple years goes to... *drumroll please*

Ichiban-YA on Thurlow (across from Joe Fortes) And from the looks of these other reviews (wrote mine on April 8) it ain't doing so hot!

This place seriously was my ALL TIME fave jap resto when I was a kid (previously named Ichiban-kan). I'd say from 2000-2005, I was there every weekend with my family. Local celebs LOVED coming here and waits would always be 30minutes+ to an hour. Best sushi of my life and the bonus was it was owned and ran by a Japanese guy!! After he sold it the new owner turned it into a small izakaya but prices were steep so we stopped going.

Fast forward 2011, I gave it another go cause I had SUCH good memories but it was a major let down. MAJOR. It was so bad I wanted to cry when I had to pay because I couldn't believe I was paying for shit. ARGH. It still makes my blood boil when I think how bad it was.

There's some new Eatery-esque place on Main called the General Public.

For the steeper prices, the food is not good. It seems like they're trying too hard to make it wacky instead of actually tasting decent. Rolls were too salty, tempura was soggy.

Place was fairly empty, and service was still slow. I'll cut them some slack in this department though, since the place is still new-ish.

This place is like the Eatery's fat, ugly, sister.

Word on the street is that this place was opened by "guys from the Eatery."
But does that mean the owner-operator opened this location? Or did the dishwashers take out a bank loan?

Judging by the food and service, the latter seems more probable.

I'm really surprised when people say they LOVE the eatery. I've been there..probably too many times for my liking. I mean..I get it. It's a happening place, and I will admit the decor is pretty rad. But the food is just.....bleh.

^Agreed.

Though I do go there every couple months or so, because my girlfriend is one of those people who LOVE it.
I find it's more of an up-beat hang-out that happens to serve sushi, than simply a real sushi restaurant. Fun place, loud music, cute waitresses, funky menu, merchandise, etc.

The food isn't the best, but it's not bad. They make up for the sub-par-ness with new quirky concoctions. Definitely better than this new General Public place.

Kisha Poppo @ Ironwood Plaza Richmond.

Went there for lunch with co-workers. Sashimi was still frozen, rice was soggy, service was slow.

Wished we went to McDonalds or Tim Hortons nearby instead.

Last time and only time I went to The Eatery the food sucks and tasted horrible, I do agree that it's a cool place to hang out and have a drink though.

Rule of thumb, any sushi joint with a generic English word before/after the word Sushi, stay away.
