When I think of sushi, I would not have thought about this place which is located on Granville Street, near Robson. From the street, it's hard to tell what the place is like. We were going to a show at the Orpheum. Given that most of the selection for dining around this area is mostly fast food, we decided to... More

Took my brother in law out for dinner while in town for business. Service was very friendly and very swift. I recommend the signature dishes. Their Blue fin sashimi was soooo good. It's my favourite and I always order it if I see it on the menu. It did not disappoint ( other than I thought the portion size was... More

We make an effort to go to this restaurant whenever we are in Vancouver. So far, everything we have tried and the menu has been great. Don't pass up the Japanese-style baby back ribs--they are the house special and they are, indeed, special! Oh, and they have a fantastic flight of flavored (fruit infused) sake drinks that are out of... More

Shuraku serves delicious food. The pork belly tacos, real crab California roll and grilled squid are my favourite. Ramen is only ok. It's usually busy in there so best to make a reservation

The food is very fresh and made to order so you do wait a little, not suitable if you want to eat quickly and get out - allow time to relax and enjoy. You might need to book. We had ribs which were great, soba noodles very good. Avocado and tofu salad very refreshing. We went 2 nights in a... More

The food was excellent but not a lot of options for people who don't drink beer or sake, not that it bothered me because my husband loved it. The service was quick and very tasty. Recommend a visit.

To start off the meal we got a table for seven though reservations. But instead of getting a table to accommodate our abnormally sized family we got a table that was fitting for a table for four persons. Then I decided to freshen up, and saw my self in a extremely poorly kept facilities. Besides that the sushi was pretty... More

Staying in Granville Street

Neighbourhood Profile
Granville Street
Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs and watering holes that it's fondly nicknamed the city's 'Entertainment District.' Friday and Saturday nights are the most popular and lively, with young revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping the party going until late. Granville Street, being mostly open to pedestrian-only traffic, has a healthy social life along its main thoroughfares, even outside of its cafes and pubs, spilling onto the sidewalks. The locals are chatty, the shops at its expansive Pacific Centre Mall are trendy, and the whole area seems to be on a sugar rush: in a good way. Exuberance and camaraderie classify this neighbourhood.
