The food is orgasmic, different, but not too weird. If you're bored of hum drum sushi, and ready for your tastebuds to get a upgrade, then head to Kishimoto.

The service is good and the food is always delicious. It's quite busy there and they don't take reservations so go early.

I have been here 3 times now and they simply serve great food. Nice presentation and very good quality food. We tried the dragon roll, duck buckwheat noodle, 3 types of assorted sashimi and scallop nigiri. The temperature of the rice was nice and cold.

Kishimoto is consistently rated one of the best Japanese restaurants in Vancouver and deservedly so. The food is absolutely delicious. Service fast and friendly. There's always a line up as they don't take reservations. Having said all this, I do think the rolls are overpriced....More

Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises
of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy
counter-culture. Straddling the line between
sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by
students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups,
and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat
counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which
well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit

I was there for lunch so I can't speak for dinner lineups but I imagine if you go early or late is better than peak dinner hours. fyi I think it opens at 5;00 and it's not very big.
