Sushi by Yuji

Stumbled across this post at Kevin's site, and I recall seeing the name Yuji on here recently, and am wondering if it's the same guy:


Looks good nevertheless !

    That's got me hyperventilating :) Great to have quality sushi in that area. I also have a soft spot for Shima-Ya on Victoria Dr. near 41st, not too far from that hood. But the pics on the Sushi by Yuji Facebook page look promising! Thx for the intel.

      That's not Yuji Otsuka from the old place on 4th, if that's what you're thinking (he's re-opening where Ghianda was on Alma). The Kingsway one is Yuji Nagaya: https://www.facebook.com/sushibyyuji/...

        Is Nagaya-san a new guy on the scene, or does he hail from another previous operation elsewhere ? I don't frequent Kingsway corridor anymore these days, but in the past the number of authentic sushi restaurants there could be counted on one hand: Kura in Burnaby and VanYa on Tyne (just off of Kingsway). This place looks promising.

          I read somewhere that Yuji used to work at Shiro. I got takeout from there and enjoyed it enough to try their omakase:

            Awesome. I'll have to try it soon. I am in that zone regularly. I noted that soon-to-open Latin American joint a couple of doors down from there too.
