Was in Vancouver visiting my health conscious niece, trying to impress her with quality/organic sushi found on advisor ... but she's been there many times. Food/Service are awesome, their menu has just enough yummy items to please the customer(quality not quantity)👍👍

This small spot is special, the food is tasty and light, healthy and flavourful. A great value. It's a bit tight inside but worth the wait. Love all the options and brown rice!

We had a night stopover in Vancouver and were staying just round the corner. We had the set dinner, including the vegetarian option. There's a reason it's so highly rated, the food was delicious and the staff were very cheerful. I wish we were staying...More

Granville Street
Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and
has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs

revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping
the party going until late. Granville Street, being

Hi - I would call first (in fact you should anyway as it is very popular). We found the service very good and personal so I'd imagine gluten and garlic free should be possible/easy. Good luck and enjoy!
