I've ordered twice now and both times they were very busy with long waits. The restaurant has an off-putting old fish smell and the food was average.

Get there at opening or wait in line for my favourite sushi spot in Vancouver. The room is very small.

We ordered various maki rolls, some brown rice, some white. All was amazing and fresh. We also tried some sashimi, was incredibly fresh. This place gets busy, so come early! Great service

Excellent sushi. Worth the wait. We went for lunch on a Friday and had to wait for 25 minutes. Small place. Fresh sushi. The chefs know their crafts. Will visit again.

Quite a wait to get seated but well worth it. This popular place offers wonderful quality sashimi and very friendly and attentive service.

This place is a little smaller, i would say there's the bar in front of the sushi chef and then a three seater bar along the window and about 10 small tables. There most likely will be a wait for a table, but immediate seating...More

Type: Japanese Sushi Bar Ajisai is a small cozy place with good quality sushi plus other great menu items. The place is popular with the locals and lines up pretty fast when it opens for dinner at 5:00pm. They are open for lunch as well....More

Kerrisdale is Vancouver's laid-back shopping district.
In contrast to Robson Street, there is more on offer,
at more competitive pricing and a slower pace. Called
"The Village" colloquially, over 200 storefronts and
one-off shops crowd its streets with products and
services. It is set in a comparatively sleepy part of
town, with tasteful homes and tree-lined walks. Many
of its buildings are listed on the Heritage registry,
