Is there any decent sushi in the Vancouver business district?

    Have you tried sushi zero one? It's pretty cheap and decent. I think it's on pender and seymour. Only 4 block or so away.

      I don't even know if they are still in business - see if misaki is the panpacific hotel is still there. I haven't been in a very long time, but I remember that they had good traditionalist sushi there.

      Also chiyoda on alberni and burrard-ish. I don't know if they are still there. Might have to google.

      Aki is solid and traditional.

        Hi waylman:

        Were you looking for lunch recs for workdays or... I read a recent report on this place at a local food blog that I like, mentioning that they have some quality bentos available at lunch for $8-16 (quite complimentary about the regular fare also). Might be worth a try if it is near you...

          Here are my faves:
          sit down ---
          Shuraku - Granville and Robson
          Aki - Thurlow between Alberni and Robson

          takeout ---
          Fujiya - Pender between Thurlow and Burrard (haven't been there for a while but they used to have decent sushi ready made for good prices)

            I recently dinned at a sushi restruant across the street from the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. It is upstairs and they fly their yellowtail in fresh from Japan everyday and their crab salad is the best I've ever had. Sweet Dungeness crab. Over all, fresh fish.

          Doesn't appeal personally but it's in the 'hood.
