First time here, not the greatest experience.
Sushi and food was ok, nothing special. Price and value is also ok. Very slow service, we had to flag servers down several times. We were brought soup with no soup spoon, waited 5 minutes before we could have our soup. We ordered sushi and sashimi combo to go, also took forever. I finally went up to the sushi bar and ask for it, it was just seating... more

I regularly get take-out here as the restaurants tends to get busy during dinner time and it's just quicker to order out. Also, their dining seats are too low for the tables and sag quite a bit. This is your typical Korean-run sushi restaurant. Cheap prices, good portions. There have been several times where toro was unavailable at this location. Sometimes I also find the rolls are made a bit... more

Quantity over Quality. You get a lot of sushi for your money, but quality sometimes can be questionable. Service is usually okay to poor cause they are usually pretty busy. I guess lot of people like quantity over quality.

Let's start with the basics:

Very fast service

Nice and comfortable decor, although it is a small space so you may have to wait a while for dinner time if you are coming with a large group. We came with 7 people and we waited 30 minutes to be seated. Very loud atmosphere.

Prices are very reasonable considering the portion sizes. It is actually a lot cheaper than many other sushi restaurants... more

Ordered takeout and was quoted 20 minutes. It took well over 30.

Ordered dynamite roll, yam tempura roll, negitoro roll, salmon avocado roll, and avocado roll.

I have eaten here before and it was your typical cheap sushi (what's to be expected for the price). However on this visit, I'm not sure if the rice was hot when these rolls were prepared, but the fish was warm and tasted "fishy".... more

I'm unsure as to why the rating is so low when this place is slammed all the time! If you are coming to have dinner here be prepared to wait! The reason for the long line ups is the sheer volume of food you get for the price . Because they go through so much food the fish is generally very fresh. Best value hands down the tuna sashimi!

Always a busy restaurant which is warranted by the generous portions and good pricing. We frequent this chain quite often however we ordered takeout and they forgot half of our food. We live 30 minutes and they told us after realizing when we got home to come back for the rest of the food. They didn't apologize, they didn't do anything for us. If I didn't live so far I would probably have went... more

As bad as they come.. Crushed Alaskan roll with sauce hastily sprayed everywhere, subpar service, fruit flies and worst yet, plastic tea cups that smell like rotten fish. Used to be my favourite (best bang for buck) now it's simply tasteless and overcrowded.

Go-to place for some Japanese food. Nothing fancy, though if you are looking for upscale Japanese food. Reasonable price and generous portions. Can be a little noisy but again we go for the food. Wait time can be long so be sure to put your name on the book as soon as you get int - don't wait for the waiter to see you.

Food and prices are good but the service is terrible and I wish I had taken a picture of their takeout because of how horrendous it looked and how poorly it was put together. I tried getting takeout on two different occasions because I live so close and it was not even during a busy time, both times I was shocked by how gross it tasted and looked and ended up throwing it away.

Sushi town is my go-to sushi restaurant in Coquitlam. Admittedly, the service isn't great; the waitresses only come around maybe once a meal to fill your drinks and waiting for the food to arrive is like rolling a die. However, you do get a very satisfying meal for a reasonable price.

The spicy salmon sashimi is great value for the price. It comes with a lot of salmon along with a hefty... more

My friends and I love eating dinner here, and we go at least twice a month. The portions are surprisingly large for the low price, and they have a menu with over 100 items.

Service is usually fast, although I've had a couple dinners that was almost like they forgot about us. That being said, the sushi is average. Average, but for the price it is most definitely worth it.

Tonight I came in expecting okay tasting sushi. But lets go back in time for a little bit. I came in the restaurant, we we not acknowleged by any waitresses. Turns out you sign a waiting list to be seated. We were not made aware of this, so I ended up waiting for 20mins. Not ideal, if you ask me. So after we were finally seated, the food took a boatload of time to be served. Another 30 minutes... more

I still think the food is reasonable, but I've resorted to only eating take out. I can't stand sitting in the restaurant with poor service. I get visited by fruit flies more than the servers. They are still very busy because the prices can't be beat, but I just can't put up with the environment and having to leave a tip for such poor service.

We haven't been back to Sushi Town since the renovations have been completed until Monday night.

The restaurant is INFESTED with fruit flies which indicates rotting food left in the restaurant. We moved tables 3x to get away from the flies.

Best sushi in town. Food comes out quickly. Portions are big and prices are cheap.
Awesome Roll is awesome. Fantastic Roll is fantastic. Spicy tuna and salmon sashimi portion is massive!
They are constantly packed and there's usually a wait line to be seated, but it's worth the wait!

My family and I were expecting great things from this place since the lineup was so long, but boy were we disappointed!

They don't take reservations, so we ended up waiting 20 min for a table for 4. Not the best, but not absolutely terrible. The atmosphere was decent too.

In terms of the food, it came very quickly and was very reasonably priced. We tried the Dynamite Roll, Chicken Teriyaki... more

Food: Would you like something else with that mayo? Items that have mayo are saturated with it--yuck!

Service: Robotic, rude. If you are unhappy with an item and you don't eat it they will not refund your money. The seafood salad is awful :(

This is a busy restaurant out in the suburbs. This means the sushi is usually very fresh. They have a decent variety of rolls and sushi. But they don't have a lot of variety for cooked food for your more squeamish friends.

Probably the prettiest of all of their locations, even better than North Van.

Food was awesome. Service was awful. If you are someone who goes to a restaurant, order once (and ask for nothing else not even for tea refill), get up and go to the counter to pay, then this is the perfect place for you. And truthfully, I'm that type of eater so no complaints for me, but my gang was a little upset they couldn't flag down a waiter/tress for 10-15 minutes =9

Newly renovated, much better service
August 24, 2013

We tolerated the busted up decor and rude servers pre-renovation because the value for the dollar was so great. They've renovated both the physical space and the servers' attitudes - both are way more inviting. The food is still pretty good too. We were regulars before because of the decent prices. Now we're much happier with the entire experience.

This restaurant has just been freshly renovated. When we went the other day, it was packed and a line-up of only a few minutes.
The food was very good - generous portions of sashimi - Tuna or Salmon for 8.95 - large pieces.
Rolls start at just 2.00!!
A great place for sushi that is very affordable.
