Need Lunchtime all you can eat Sushi recommendation for Vancouver (preferrably not downtown)

islandgirl May 5, 2010 12:15 PM

My brother who loves all-you-can-eat sushi is coming to town. I don't usually go for this type of sushi since the quality is usually not up to par but that's what he wants so I'm on the hunt for a lunchtime place.

We've been to Shabusen and Fish on Rice (at Hemlock and West Broadway) several times and would like to try somewhere new. We're prefer not to go into downtown proper but anywhere else is fine.

    Have you tried Tomokazu? Their sister location Ninkazu in richnmond serves AYCE sushi AND hotpot in the evenings. Not saying it's any better than shabusen or F on R. I agree with you on the sub par level. I find most places get a whole 'regular' salmon as oppose to sushi grade salmon (which has been frozen to -30 long enough to kill parasites etc etc.).

      I don't do AYCE's either but my co-workers all go to Tomokazu on a regular basis. That is their "goto" AYCE sushi lunch place...
