Shima-ya

Vancouver, BC V5P 3W2‎

Price: Inexpensive particularly for the quality
Would we go back: Yes
Reservations: highly recommended

Great but small (seats maximum of 15-20 people) sushi restaurant run by a japanese couple with a loyal following. Clean and simple – the decor is nothing special – you definitely go there for the food. In addition, no fried foods (i.e. no tempura) – the restaurant only seems to have a toaster oven. The fish is super fresh. Other things to try include the chopped scallop roll, california roll, uni (only if you like it – it is definitely an acquired taste) and the black cod. If you are ordering take-out – the restaurant offers discounts 5% if it is 2 hours in advance and 10% if it is one day in advance.
