Upscale Japanese restaurant Smack in the middle of Yaletown, this upscale Japanese restaurant has a large selection of food; whereas I concentrated on sushi dishes ... absolutely yummy!!!Sat outside on the patio and service was friendly and professional. Would return anytime.BerndWilliams Lake, BC
Excellent japonais à Vancouver Dans le quartier branché de Vancouver, un vrai restaurant japonais. Le chef vous propose ses sushis du jour et c’est à tomber. Raffinement total , produits de la mer de grande qualité, présentation soignée et service impeccable, c est le gastronomie japonaise pure. J ai adoré les 3 sushis de saumon et le sashimi de saumon rouge.
Best Japanese chefs and sushi in Vancouver! Best sushi in Vancouver by far!Been to numerous sushi places in town and nothing compares to the fresh fish and variety from Japan.We had a great time enjoying the food while watching the skilled professionals at work.Just Outstanding service and food!
Creative and delicious! We ended up in this restaurant by chance and did not expect to be treated to a culinary adventure that included deliciously sumptuous pork belly that was served with a smoke trapped under a glass cone (quite a show), outstanding sablefish with beautiful glaze, beef tataki served over crisp apple slices, Omakase Premium Aburi set and a few delicious sushi rolls. A definite “we will be back” place.
Not the usual sushi place First, Sakana seems to have become a cult Japanese bistro; the night we went, it was packed even though it was mid-week. Second, the food was just as good as before 2020. Third, it is a small place, and when crowded, might not be ideal for those aware of social distancing. But such an inventive menu, and such delicate preparation!
Craved good japanese food I have not gone out for Japanese for months because of COVID-19. There is heated covered patio seating which is great. We enjoyed so many good items: fish neck, wagyu beef, scallop sushi, assorted tempura, salmon sashimi and unagi roll.

Really nice place for a happy hour The happy hour runs until 6:30 which is quite unusual in my neighbourhood and we were quite pleased to give it a try. The menu several selections with the reduced happy hour rate and the wine by the glass (also at a reduced rate of $6.50) was of a nicer quality than most places we've visited. We shared the prawn tempura which was cooked light and crispy and not at all oily; it was really great. The dynamite roll was super fresh, and our favourite being the crispy tuna sandwich was so tasty, we'll return just to have it again.The staff were super friendly and attentive and we felt safe and distanced from others while sitting on the patio under the heaters.
Very nice place to visit Very clean, excellent service, friendly atmosphere, Authentic Japanese food. good pricing, a peaceful place to enjoy your journey
