    Best spicy tuna roll I've ever had! All their sushi is made with brown rice, which is delicious and filling.

    The nice thing about here is the the vegetarian options and sushi with brown rice is abundant. Not much room for sitting but well worth it

    Excellent. The Ocean Quartet salad is above and beyond the best value for your money, but the other mains are no slouch even if they look small, trust me when I say it's mostly just the bowl.

    This is probably my favourite sushi joint in all of Vancouver; as a vegan, there are plenty of options, they exclusively roll with brown rice, and everything is organic!

    Healthier Japanese food, what a great Idea. The greens roll is a nice alternative to the usual sushi offerings. The fish is ocean-wise and fresh tasting.
