Came in for the vegetarian bento meal and was not disappointed. For $13 the serving size was very generous. The meal came quickly but service was lacking. No one came by to ask if my meal was okay and no one bothered to refill my water. I also had to ask for the bill. The meal itself was nice. Certainly... More

Looking for a sit-down meal in Vancouver Airport - try Hanami. Quick service, consistently good food and the price is right. It is not that easy to find as it is tucked away near the security entrance for USA/Intl flights at the other end of the terminal from Domestic flights. The night I was there it had only repeat customers... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for many years when we have time between flights in YVR. It's been like a hidden gem; an airport Asian restaurant that could hold its own against anything downtown. Menu used to be interesting and now it is only the very basic, usual Japanese items. Miso soup was lukewarm with a salty commercial... More

This is like a cafeteria restaurant. Good selection at moderate prices for an airport... but the food is basic Asian cuisine. Don't expect Vancouver seafood quality. Staff was efficient but not that friendly. Not much choice at YVR if you want sushi.

The service here was pretty quick and they give you decent portions I feel. It is quite busy but appears to be the best among the places in the international terminal. I had the sesame chicken and teriyaki two item combo and it was filling and "good enough". I'd come here again for sure.

Not great. Food cheap and refrozen food.Not the best quality. Rice tasted over cooked and dry. If it was real rice at all as it tasted like plastic. This was at YVR and would never go back when passing through again. Even the tea which was supposed to be Japanese was a very cheap version and not the real Japanese... More

I had to kill a half hour at YVR on a drizzly Friday night and popped in just before closing. Told server I had 20 minutes and was assured they could deliver ramen within that time: they did. Unexpectedly delish and comforting soup. Nice broth with tender lean pork, wonderful egg, corn and nori. So good. Wonderful gentle server had... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch on the way through the airport. Was greeted across the restaurant by the hostess - thought it was odd that she did not come over the the hostess stand and greet me there. Then I pick a table, and she yells across the to next customer coming in - across my table. Not a... More

We ate here while at the Vancouver International Airport and were pleased the food was excellent. The Bento Box was generously filled with a good variety and the Chicken YakiSoba serving was generous. Tea was hot and continuously refilled as we ate. It's not always possible to find good food at an airport!
