Best of Vancouver: Toshi Takes Top Sushi Honours

Best of Vancouver Toshi Sushi on UrbanspoonLast month we asked you to vote in our next Best of Vancouver feature, as we hunted for the top sushi in the city. We have to tell you, Vancouver moms take their sushi seriously. On Facebook, on Twitter, and in our poll you made the case for your personal favourites. But in the end, there can be only one winner. Today we’re happy to say that after all the votes were in and counted, top sushi honours went to Toshi Sushi. Located at 181 East 16th Avenue in Vancouver, this restaurant is usually busy, and for good reason. You say the prices are reasonable and the food is great. They don’t have a website, but you can give them a call at 604.874.5173. It may be best to choose a time when you don’t have little kids with you to brave the lineup, though.

Best of Vancouver Sushi Runners-Up

Toshi didn’t take the Best of Vancouver honours without a fight, however. The runners-up in the voting were:

[ordered_list style=”decimal”]

  1. Kaide – Kaide’s website boasts “the best sushi in Vancouver”. According to you, that should be changed to “almost the best sushi in Vancouver”. That’s still not too shabby in a place like Vancouver. If you find yourself near 1375 Richards, you may want to stop by and check it out.
  2. Ajisai – Over in Kerrisdale, Ajisai is a popular lunch spot. They don’t accept reservations, but any wait will be worthwhile. You find them on a lot of top sushi lists, and for good reason. Visit them at 2081 West 42nd Avenue. 604.266.1428
  3. Sushiyama – Another Mount Pleasant rounds out the runner-up list in this Best of Vancouver search. You’ll find Sushiyama at 371 East Broadway. Like many popular sushi spots you can expect a lineup, but fans say their service is amazingly fast. 604.872.0053

    For ambiance and great food, I love Sushi Kimura. It’s a small restaurant which requires reservations otherwise you can wait. I was recommended by several people to go there and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was fresh and it was a “true” japanese restaurant!
