This was our first time at Kishimoto and we are absolutley in love! I picked this place not only for the good reviews, but also because they serve okonomiyaki. You can order that ahead while waiting for your table, since it needs about 30min cooking...More

Kishimoto is consistently rated one of the best Japanese restaurants in Vancouver and deservedly so. The food is absolutely delicious. Service fast and friendly. There's always a line up as they don't take reservations. Having said all this, I do think the rolls are overpriced....More

Kishimoto is definitely one of my favourite sushi places in Vancouver. The only downside, no reservations and long waits! I normally do take out which I find is the best way to enjoy Kishimoto without having to stand outside for 40 minutes.

Drool.... Great spot for sushi. It's not a big restauant but you can put your name down, go for a drink somewhere else and they will give you a call. Great service, atmosphere, food and it's reasonably priced!

Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises
of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy
counter-culture. Straddling the line between
sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by
students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups,
and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat
counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which
well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit

I was there for lunch so I can't speak for dinner lineups but I imagine if you go early or late is better than peak dinner hours. fyi I think it opens at 5;00 and it's not very big.
