Decent and consistent food and service. The place is in dire need of TLC and cleaning. The prices reflect the above.

I their defense it was a very busy night. My dinner was good. A bit pricey for what I got but I'm from the mainland and everything on the SS Coast seems high to me.

We were visiting friends in Gibsons and this place was recommended to us. Unfortunately, this may have been the worst Japanese I've experienced. I will say the service was friendly and timely, and the restaurant was fairly typical in decor. My daughter had the French...Kiss roll and while she really enjoyed it, the rest of our meals were not good, in fact we left much of it on our plates and declined a doggy bag. We will not stop here again.More

We have been to Asia many times and have eaten at other Japanese restaurants. The spices and sauces were not up to our standard and were quite disappointing.

I ordered the salmon and tuna sashimi which was very fresh and good. I also had two rolls one yellow tail and scallion which lacked scallion and it was very tasteless and I had another roll, can't remember which one but I think it had...eel and salmon it had too much red Korean hot sauce. I would try this place again and try something else.More

I usually go to another sushi restaurant in Gibsons but it was closed. I decided to try Sima at the Sunnycrest Mall. It was packed which made me wonder why we had never been there. I wanted take out so chose my meal from the...menu and left. Everything I ordered was ready in about 15 minutes.....just when they estimated. The food was delicious and the servings were generous.More

I like to order Sashimi A when I am here. It's refreshing. The tea is always hot and so is the Miso soup. There is plenty of seating, as I learned during my last visit. Booths go all the way to the back of the...restaurant.More

I ordered Sashimi combo A. It was Salmon and Tuna. I also ordered Miso soup. I have been here a few times. This most recent visit was a bit different in presentation. There was lemon wedges with the Wasabi and Ginger. It was refreshing. My...food was served quickly by friendly staff (lila?).More

this is not an unusual situation in that many sushi places give you rolls that are 90 percent rice with a little sliver of fish inside. If you are in the mood for sushi and don't mind paying less to get less, Sima is just...fine.More

It's nice to have a place that is open during the hours between lunch & dinner. However, the sushi was poorly prepared, with the rolls falling apart (uramaki- rolled with rice on the outside). The "red tuna" was pale pink & unappealing. The spicy tuna...roll had a red sauce that looked like ketchup on top, and had little flavor of any kind. The salad was just iceberg lettuce with an orange sauce. We ordered only water to drink & received small plastic cups of water & had no ability to order a refill when the cups were emptied.More
