Ajisai Sushi isn’t found on a busy road or one that most pedestrians walk past. Instead, it’s hidden away in a small pedestrian passageway beautifully decorated with tiles, flowers and wooden benches. This idyllic part of the trendy Kerrisdale area serves as the backdrop for Ajisai’s fresh and adventurous sushi. The small restaurant is neatly decorated and the sushi chef artfully makes his creations behind a bar right by the door. This is a far cry from Japanese take-out or fast food. Instead, a meal at Ajisai is cultured, beautifully displayed, and meant to be enjoyed.
The food at Ajisai is always made to order and ready very promptly. It’s hard to eat creations that are so beautiful! Many of the dishes are a little more luxurious than you would expect, both in presentation and taste. If you’re a sashimi lover, be sure to order the tuna. It’s fresh and the texture is something sashimi connoisseurs will appreciate. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill sushi restaurant. Here, you’ll find special surprises like the geoduck and plum-paste roll. For the vegetarians out there, there’s even vegetarian sashimi. It’s made to look like fish, but it’s really red bell pepper. Be sure to check out the rest of the restaurant’s long list of vegetarian options.

With dishes this delicious and luxurious, you’d expect high prices. But the prices at Ajisai are very reasonable. It’s an excellent opportunity to try Japanese cuisine in a relatively unknown restaurant. It’s like a bit of a treasure waiting to be discovered.
