Well located for pre- or post-theatre meals, Shuraku offers a wonderful variety of Japanese dishes. It is fun to try different dishes and the prices are reasonable for such consistently good food.

We’ve frequented this once great Sushi place over many years ever since it first opened. The decor is getting tired, the service is barely there and the food is a ripoff for the prices you pay. $100+ for 2 with 1 sake and 1 beer and we left hungry. The rolls are poorly constructed and about half the size they used to be and were way to salty. The only good aspect was the whole grilled squid that’s always been good. No house sake, no ginger with your Sushi, tiny wasabi and you have to ask the host to send the server over to order multiple times . All around pricey and disappointing experience. Maybe I’ll try one last time in the future because of all the good meals in the past, but please find some less condescending servers that don’t make you feel stupid you don’t speak their language, since English is apparently too difficult for them.

Food portions can be a bit small for the price but it is to be expected in the heart of DT Vancouver. Overall a very good restaurant with great service that helped celebrate my birthday!
