Love this new finding, had to wait in line prior to restaurant being open but was worth the wait. Pricier side but service was impeccable and food was lovely. Will return again.

So, went on to search for the best sushi of Vancouver and this place came up in the top 10 of the search results and decide to give it a try. With much of the reviews mentioned no reservations allowed and need to be early as some needed to wait for 30-45 mins despite of arriving 5 mins before restaurant... More

Great sushi/sashimi and great service. One of those places you can have consistency and a really nice time.

Stopped here for dinner with the family based on good reviews from friends. We arrived at 5pm on a Saturday, and the line started buidling the minute we got there. The restaurant itself looks indistiguishable from any other local sushi restaurant, and the menu is completey in English, which is normally not a good sign. But the moment we had... More

The atmosphere is cozy, with wood paneling and decorative lanterns. The food itself is phenomenal in its presentation. They use an array of candles, edible flowers, and other decorative items to make your plate look extremely pretty and appetizing. Kishimoto always has a long line, mainly because the seating is limited and they do not take reservations. My tip for... More

Can't make it to Japan? Vancouver has amazing sushi and this place is one of the best! Every bite was mouthwatering and the sake was the best I've had.

Busy bustling little restaurant that serves delicious sushi. We went on a midweek night and the place was full. They try and turn tables quickly so don't order everything at once! Well worth a visit.

We'd been travelling in the US & had been looking forward to the food scene in Vancouver. In fact, apart from this absolute gem, we were disappointed. This little restaurant on Commercial Drive is well worth the short trip away from Downtown. It opens at 5pm. You can't book & there's always people waiting. Service is excellent and the food...

Staying in Commercial Drive

Neighbourhood Profile
Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy counter-culture. Straddling the line between sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups, and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit of self-aware graffiti, Commercial Drive has resisted gentrification in favor of continuing to build a thriving den of affordable multiculturalism. Once known as Vancouver's "Little Italy," it has also been the immigration point for Guatemalans, Hondurans, and Portuguese to the city. The resulting hodgepodge makes for poetry readings in espresso cafes, social debates in early-open bakeries, and eco-activism posters pinned up in the many multi-ethnic markets in the area. Commercial Drive is where you go to feel like a local, and if you have them, bring the kids – The Drive has a number of bookshops, toy stores, and attractions to get them involved too.
