Torarenbo is an authentic japanese restaurant serving up bbq, sushi, sashimi, donburi, udon and small eats like takoyaki. Their food plentifull in both quality and quantity. The takoyaki was expecially good with a crisp exterior and a soft and savory interior covered by mayonaise and other sauces. The beef sukiyaki donburi was fairly good and was incredibly filling. I definitely... More

Located in a street mall in Richmond, there is nothing fancy about this restaurant, both inside and out, that captures your attention and yet it is always packed, particularly on the weekend. The interior is unpretentious to the point of boring but whatever that is lacking in its ambiance is well compensated by the excellent food complimented by friendly and... More

Once in a while, I have this craving for sashimi and tempura. Although there are more than 2 sushi places near my home, I would still walk further to get to Torarenbo Japanese Restaurant on Park Road. Why? Because they have quality sashimi. They are a little bit pricier than the other Japanese restaurants but they always served the best.... More

I come from Portland where good sushi comes at a premium price. So whenever I visit Vancouver, I make it a point to visit a good sushi joint or two. We came here on a Friday evening around 6. We had a large party so reservations were a must. The sashimi is very good. Make sure you order the wild... More

My friends and I often frequent this Sushi style restaurant at least once a week. The food is good quality and service is mainly good. The odd time, you have to wait a while or I think they may give you meal to another table by accident, oops! We usually order the sushi or sashimi lunch which is very filling... More

I love their lunch combos. Every time I go I always get either the Sushi lunch or the sashimi combo. You get a bit of everything (udon, salad, sushi/sashimi depending on which you ordered, tempura) Service there is generally great, Chef is Japanese

We discovered this place back in 2008 and we have to say it is by far the best sushi we've had in Richmond. We usually order avacado rolls, bc rolls, torarenbo special rolls which are made of tuna, salsa, avacado, & hot sauce, karagi chicken, mixed veg tempura, beef donburi and spider rolls. Those are the ones we typically order,... More
