About Us

With a firm foundation in Japanese culinary tradition and a passion to explore new territory, chefs at Bistro Sakana continue to build on Bistro Sakana innovations, such as the use of brown rice in sushi, and unique Japanese fusion dishes with Italian and French influences.
Also featured is Vancouver’s largest and most exclusive list of premium cold sake, served by the glass from the native 1.8L bottles common in Japan. An extensive list of wines & beer is also available, as well as a full high-end sipping bar.
Enjoy an atmosphere that contrasts the urban chic of brushed stainless and gallery lighting with high ceilings, massive fir beams, and heritage brick. Experience lively yet intimate dining inside, with the latest in modern jazz and vintage Japanese cinema, or relax and watch the world go by on the lush garden patio, situated on an old railcar loading dock.
Come by and experience our passion for good food & drink, and find out why our regular customers insist that we are the best at what we do.
