Outside of downtown Vancouver, Tomokazu was everyone’s go-to affordable all you can eat sushi restaurant. And after a facelift and new management, this old staple spot has been reinvigorated.
Inside you’ll find a more modern decor and robot servers roaming around to give a more refreshed dining experience.
Food wise – you’ll find the standard option available. That is, your selection of maki rolls, temaki cones, tempura, teriyaki, udon, and mango pudding. But beaware that you are now limited to 2 rounds of orders. So make each round count.
What to order: Alaska Roll, Salmon Teriyaki, Gyoza
Address: 1128 W Broadway #201, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Next on the list is Richmond Ninkazu (or also known as Richmond Sushi for the OGs), another all-you-can-eat classic and is popular for their vast menu of over 100 items and affordable prices. If you’re hungry and it’s already late at night, be sure to drop by.
The restaurant has been consistently serving the community for decades, making them one of the oldest AYCEs in the city.
Ninkazu is always bustling with customers, so expect to wait for a few minutes if you’re walking in during peak hours.
The food here may be average for some, but you’ll get everything you need—all sorts of udon, tempura, short ribs, and sashimi. Other foods are noteworthy as well, particularly their sweet yam strip, tempura, chicken karaage, and beef short ribs.
What to order: Sweet Yam Strip, Tempura, Chicken Karaage, Beef Short Ribs
Address: 8388 Capstan Way #1488, Richmond, BC V6X 4A7, Canada
Another Richmond AYCE sushi spot is Kisha Poppo, who has been serving for over 20 years—talk about consistency!
Here you’ll find all you can eat menus for dinner and lunch. They also have a slightly more expensive “special” AYCE menu that includes more items as well. If you show up for the AYCE lunch menu, you’ll be rewarded with 4 free pieces of salmon or tuna sashimi on the house!
At Kisha Poppo, you’ll find your standard AYCE sushi, sashimi, and Japanese dishes. But unlike other spots in the city, they also have some special dishes available like beef tataki, negitoro maki, tako (octopus) sashimi, scallop katsu, and squid karaage.
What to order: Beef Tataki, negitoro maki, Chicken Katsu, Salmon Sashimi
Unfortunately, all you can eat sushi in Vancouver (AYCE in general) is a dying offering. Which makes sense considering the cost of food and rent has increased twenty folds.
So savour as much of the nostalgia and experience as you can with the all you can eat sushi spots still available. And if you’re looking for sushi restaurants that are at the top of the taste and service charts, consider checking out our best sushi restaurants in Vancouver list.
