good sushi. a special menu for vegetarians as well. I didn't like the way we were asked to wait outside...very rude way of welcoming guests. As you enter, there is a sign that says wait to be seated...then one of the waitresses came over and asked to step outside until they decide where to seat us! Nevertheless, we enjoyed our... More

I visited the Eatery with friends last month. We all really loved the place, it was such a fun atmosphere. The food we had was super delicious, but definitely 'fusion' rather than authentic Japanese cuisine. There was a lot of sauce / mayo on the sushi for instance. The service was friendly and they found us a table, even though... More

My sister had heard about this place from friends so we decided to check it out. The decor was pretty psychedelic and the lighting didn't do the presentation of the food justice but we were surprised at how good the food was. Guess we shouldn't judge by first impression! Would recommend but definitely heads up on the black light and... More

We stumbled upon the Eatery last summer when looking for a quick place for lunch. So glad we did! Tasty food, attentive servers and great decor. We had a variety of menu items: yaki soba, sunomono, misc sushi rolls. All were very good. The menu is varied with some classics and spin-offs of them. They have a large variety of... More

As a kits local I frequent the eatery on a pretty regular basis. My friends and I are all in our 20s and this is an easy place for us to go as its close to ubc and the 99. The food here is amazing! The rolls are inventive and delicious. Try the kfc roll or the green eggs and... More

We went to The Eatery and got a table right away. There is a vast selection of sushi, which is great! The hardest part of ordering was choosing which rolls to get. They are reasonably priced and the portions were satisfying. We came out feeling very full! The music was very good, but slightly loud.

This place is super fun. Great food. Great staff. Huge menu of great imaginative rolls. A little crowded but that's cuz it's good. And a little loud for conversation but eat here and go talk somewhere else.

This place has been around for years and is one of the busier restaurants in Kits. A lot of university students hang out here, it is known for its unique rolls and unique decor. Very cool laid back Kits vibe and reasonable prices. If you are looking for a fun dining experience this is the place for you. If you... More

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighbourhood Profile
Kitsilano
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
