It's gem that this place is just two blocks away from our home. I find the restaurant and staffs really really nice. They welcome you warmly and make sure that everything is good. Their special rolls are way delicious ( Jessica roll, red dragon roll, and aloha roll are our favorite).

You can also call in for delivery if you can't wait. Popular with locals in the area and always fresh fresh. Great service and as I said you are... More

Great to find a neighbourhood sushi place that features all the "sushi favourites" at good prices AND delivers. We ordered online, picked a delivery time and the food showed up exactly when requested...and everything that should be warm, was. Delicious as well...will order again.

In Vancouver, there is a sushi restaurant on practically every block. Some are good, some not so good. This place is great. Freshness defines the quality of any restaurant, but especially so the sushi places. Yanaki serves the freshest, tastiest sushi I have ever had. The menu is extensive, featuring the usual Japanese fare, and the prices are quite reasonable.... More

Been going here since they opened. Consistently decent service, sometimes even excellent. The fish is fresh, the dishes are nicely presented on real china (little waste here). There menu is more than basic but manageable in terms of experimentation. The takedown and sit-down quality is equal. I like being greeted warmly when I arrive and having the kitchen staff sing...

YANAKI is a very good though tiny Japanese restaurant in the heart of Ambleside West Vancouver. We just ordered from there last night. They have all the usual Japanese dishes and some delicious Specials. We usually get to go and it's been our go to place for years. It's consistently good. And the fact that it's been in West Van....

We had four different rolls...green dragon, crunch, KKT, and another spicy roll. also lobster gyoza. The service was good, the rolls artistic and presented beautifully. The chefs even sent some treats...bacon wrapped green beans. Yum! This is a great place to eat sushi.

Neighbourhood Profile
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
