Once again a fantastic meal. Everything is made fresh as you order. The prawn tempura that they serve here is the best you will find in the lower mainland. The service is second to none. Friendly and extremely efficient. The homemade peach pie was to die for. Our server is the very best anywhere. She knows the food and recommends different dishes This is an outstanding Japanese restaurant.

This is the very best Japanese restaurant on the lower mainland. The food is unbelievably fresh. It is cooked in an open kitchen as you order. The prawn tempura is the very best I have had anywhere. The dynamite roll is phenomenal. made fresh crispy and delicious and not greasy. The EBi sumo mono is made with fresh hand peeled shrimp. It is yummy The dungenrss crab roll is the best you will find anywhere. However, the service is the best that you will ever find in any restaurant anywhere. And the home cooked desserts are second to none

This has got to be one of the jewels on Vancouver lower mainland. The food is superbly fresh and beautifully prepared and presented. The Prawn Tempura is the best I have ever had anywhere. The ebi sunomono and guidance is fantastic. The dynamite roll is fresh and perfect. Everything is made fresh and you can watch all the chefs prepping. The dessert is unbelievable. Homemade and perfect. This is a must even if you do mont live in west van
