VANCOUVER BC - sushi & dim sum
So, we always here about Vancouver's amazing asian food.
Two questions -
Is Tojo's still tops for sushi?
If not, who is your fave for HIGH end raw fish?
Where would I find Vancouver's most flavorful dim sum?

ps. I just ate at Pho Hung in PDX yesterday and it was GOOOOOD. (order the #1, and don't forget the dipping donuts!)
Tojo has moved west a block to a new building-very impressive and even more expensive-it's debatable whether Sushi is worth as much as he now charges.
Sorry I don't eat Dim Sum so have no idea.
I would go to have dim sum in Richmond (a suburb where YVR airport is). Here are my recommendations:
* Fisherman's Terrace at the Aberdeen Mall (call ahead for a reservation to minimize your wait time)
* Sun Sui Wah (locations in Richmond and Vancouver).
* Top Gun (in Richmond)
i think the best place for dimsum in vancouver is kirin sushi (12th and Cambie) except there is no picture menu or little cart that comes around so you kinda need to know what you want (or have a chinese person go with you). for 'cart' dimsum, the best place is sun sui wah. keep in mind both places are really busy on the weekends and could have you waiting an hour.
A little secret but, right below the restaurant SANDBAR is a sushi bar run bar HOSHI san. He is by far one of the best suhi chef's around. You can ask him for anything and he'll make it so good and everything is so fresh! After your meal you can go upstairs to the deck to have some drinks, the view is gorgeous.
