** Update **
Unfortunately Satomi Sushi has closed now. If you didn’t get a chance to go… you missed out. 🙁
For a few months now, when passing back from Metrotown to home, I have looked in to see if Satomi Sushi was not so busy…. and it took quite a while. I generally don’t want to wait to sit in a restaurant… to those people that are willing to wait 3/4 of an hour to eat at Sushi Garden… go ahead. I’ll go to either Isami Sushi, or Satomi now (both equidistant from Sushi Garden as a central point). Both are run by Japanese people… whether families or not, that I don’t know…. but quality, and good friendly service is top notch. Am I willing to pay a little more for that… yes, yes I am.
You can read my Yelp! review for some more insight into what the wife and I had… Give it a try if you’re in the neighbourhood for either sushi, or some other Japanese fare.
