The sushi at Akira is very good. The black rice option is a nice treat for something different. Fast, friendly service and good value. We've tried many sushi places in this area and now keep coming back here as our number one choice.

The best sushi I have ever tasted in North America. Seafood so fresh, menu so creative, and ingredients so delicious that you will not leave disappointed.

The sushi is very fresh, I like the sunset roll. I ordered a take out one and the staff was being really nice and friendly, and fast.

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
