Sushi Bar Kilala

4749 Hastings Street, Burnaby, BC V5C 2K8 - map
Phone: (604) 298-4749

Nestled between Pizza Hut and a used appliance store along Hastings Street in North Burnaby, Sushi Bar Kilala is easy to miss if you’re not looking for it. The sign out front has “Sushi” written in large letters and it wasn’t until we parked and walked to the front of the restaurant that we were able to read the rest of the restaurant’s name on the sign. With less than half-a-dozen tables, this place is small and if you’re planning on eating in, plan to be there early.

Sushi Q Tea Cafe

The selection of Bubble Tea is bigger than the selection of Sushi

The first look at the menu from Sushi Q Tea Cafe and one can’t help to notice that the select of Bubble Tea is much greater than the selection of sushi. There are sushi rolls, nigiri, cones, and some other items from the kitchen, and the bubble tea is grouped into several categories, like Bubble Tea, Bubble Slush, Fruit Smooties, Calpis Slush, and more.

Yakko Sushi Japanese Restaurant

#135E-6200 McKay Avenue (Station Square), Burnaby, BC V5H 4L7 - map
Phone: (604) 430-6405
Tower Sashimi

If you don’t take transit around Metrotown, chances are you have not seen Yakko Sushi, a small restaurant hidden in the corridor between the bus loop and Station Square. We had the company of Tiny Bites and family on this evening, which was a sushi reunion of sorts as I had last eaten at Yakko when Tiny Bites took me there 12 years ago. This restaurant has been open for quite a few years and judging by consistent traffic that kept coming in to eat or pickup takeout, they are quite popular.

Sushi Oyama

5152 Kingsway, Burnaby, BC V5H 2E8 - map
Phone: (604) 568-1012
The Forest Roll

Driving by this restaurant along Kingsway has always been intriguing as it looks like someones house. Now that we had the chance to go, it can be confirmed that walking through the “yard” feels like you are arriving at a friend’s house party. Even more deceiving, you feel like there is nobody here and you have arrived at the party too early, that is until you walk up the stairs, through the front door, and realize the restaurant is busy, alive, and happening.

Sushi Town

Phone: (604) 294-6155
Sushi Town Smoked Salmon Nigiri

If you go out for sushi in Burnaby often, then you’ve know doubt heard of Sushi Town. It was one of the first locations to open in the lower mainland and they are known for their generous pieces of fish, fast service, and reasonable prices. There is a lineup most nights of the week but on weekends around dinner time, you will probably find yourself waiting on the sidewalk along Hastings Street before getting a seat inside.

Huku-Ya Japanese Restaurant

9626 Cameron Street, Burnaby, BC V3J 1L6 - map
Phone: (604) 421-5118
Huku-Ya Vegetarian Sushi

Huku-Ya is one of those hidden gems of the sushi world where few people know about this restaurant with its excellent food. Just about everything we’ve eaten here has been really good and it feels as though effort has been put into making each item of our dinner.
