Bistro Sakana, long considered a Yaletown sushi icon, continues to impress diners with a high standard of quality and service that has remained consistent for over 8 years. Creativity also plays a big role here, and at Bistro Sakana the goal is not only to satisfy, but to inspire as well. Some of the city’s most original Japanese fusion dishes, including the use of brown rice in sushi, were conceived here, and that creative spirit lives on. Bistro Sakana also has a reputation for freshness, and like all good restaurants in Japan, this starts with a daily visit to local markets.
Chefs at Bistro Sakana are very much in touch with their Japanese roots, but also willing to experiment. Here you will find both traditional Japanese cuisine alongside a variety of colourful fusion dishes. Try the Tuna Avocado Crepe or the Teppan Roll, inspired by French and Italian influences and interpreted from a uniquely Japanese perspective. This global spirit is also evident in the original cocktails, and extensive cold sake and wine list.
Bistro Sakana is located in an historic former rail-yard warehouse, with high ceilings, exposed beams, a garden patio situated on an old railcar loading dock, and a rustic/contemporary atmosphere that features modern European jazz. Come and enjoy what long time patrons often refer to as “the best sushi in Vancouver”. There’s a good chance the Bistro Sakana is just what you’ve been looking for.
