Very good option on Davies st. Ate here a couple of times. Not the best sushi I've had but great value for what you get. Huge portion specially for sashimi

Great place to go for sushi In Westend. Always busy so food is super fresh. Nice big cuts of sashimi and fabulous set lunch or dinner options let you try everything.

It's a simple restaurant, but it's quite good and really cheap. If you are really hungry I recommend to order a combination and it will be around $12, it's a lot of food and my Japanese friends say that they have a really good taste.

Go figure, a great Japanese restaurant in downtown Vancouver. Big Sushi, great service and elements of a traditional Japanese menu that is difficult to find in most places that call themselves Japanese....AND it won't break the budget! Good value, good food, quick service in a...More

Davie Village
Davie Village is the vital LGBTQ heart of Vancouver.
It is the only like area in the world to have a
permanent four-way rainbow crosswalk, to symbolise the
city's solidarity with many of the businesses, ranging
from bars to bookstores, that keep the area vibrant.
By day, it is a people-watching stop, with fantastic
boutique cafes, but at night is when it really shines,
humming with neon lights and nightclub music inside
