There are dozens of sushi joints in my neighbourhood but this is my top choice for freshness, quality, variety and price. It is owner operated and the same staff have been there for many years. There are always blackboard specials ut the menu is extensive but not huge. Their lunchtime box lunch specials are a good deal too. They have... More

Perhaps the best sushi in Vancouver especially for the price. Fresh; fresh, fresh. I used eat at the Coal Harbour one which was fancier and ahead of the development in the area so it closed. This is the original and is ever good and reasonable. I've always loved the sushi but yesterday had a box of sushi and karrage (sp?)... More

Irashai Sushi in Kerrisdale has never let me down. Tonight was no exception. They served the most wonderful chirashi I've had yet in Vancouver. My Seaweed salad to start was light and tasty too... In over 100 reviews I've rarely scored 5 from 5 in every category but Irashai truly deserves it. These guys are proud of what they do... More

Irashai was our favourite sushi restaurant for a long time. However, their portions have gotten smaller and their prices have gotten much larger over time. We've never had an issue with the quality of the food, it has always been fantastic. Our problem is with the diminished value. In addition, the quality of the wait staff has declined significantly. Kerrisdale... More

This sushi is so tasty. They really add nice little touches to their sushi that puts it above other places. The mango crab nigiri is absolutely outstanding. The crispy California roll is great, as is the salmon and tuna nigiri. Always fresh and great quality. The only downside is that the sushi prices can add up quickly, but it is... More

There are so many (10) Sushi places in Kerrisdale but this was one of the original and still our favourite. No others satisfy us the way Irashai does. Friendly, clean, portions are good, presentation is always lovely.

Staying in Kerrisdale

Neighbourhood Profile
Kerrisdale
Kerrisdale is Vancouver's laid-back shopping district. In contrast to Robson Street, there is more on offer, at more competitive pricing and a slower pace. Called "The Village" colloquially, over 200 storefronts and one-off shops crowd its streets with products and services. It is set in a comparatively sleepy part of town, with tasteful homes and tree-lined walks. Many of its buildings are listed on the Heritage registry, making it a wonderful place to amble and take in the visual history. Moreover, Kerrisdale's healthy consumer culture is especially apt for those interested in culinary, specialty, or children's shops, boasting more of these than anywhere else, meaning that it's a busy spot for families and hobbyists on the weekends.
