NOT FRESH! TERRIBLE FOOD! OVER PRICED!
Waited over 20 minutes for katsu don after everything else had arrived on the table. Interesting enough, Nabeyaki udon (which normally takes the longest in most restaurnts) arrives first just after our toro sashimi was served, and here're the rest of my meal.....
Old toro sashimi, tiny prawn (pre-fried) in the tempura, cold veg on katsu don, old/pre-fried ton katsu, and most importantly, charged $8.95 for tiny piece of BBQ black cod (around 1~2 oz. cooked) WHAT A RIP-OFF!!!
Maybe the kitchen team had a 'rough' day but no one ask how our meal were so, we will never return to the restaurant again and recommend everyone not to go to Kura!

|Reviews:||"This is Burnaby's best sushi restaurant. It's a small hole-in-the-wall place, but it's clean and always busy. The sushi is not innovative, but it is always fresh, the portions are large, and it tastes great. The clientele has grown by word of mouth, and I know people who come from all over the city (and neighbouring ones) just to eat there. We have quite a few sushi places within walking distance of our house, but Sushi Garden has spoiled us--we rarely get sushi anywhere else.

| ||"We had dinner here on a Friday afternoon. After reading other reviews we decided to go early to avoid the rush. That paid off, as the place was less that 25% occupied when we arrived at 4:30 p.m. For C$42, we had a really good meal and walked out of there stuffed. I think sashimi is the better bet as the portions are indeed large and the quality of the fish is very good. Not great but certainly very good. I had the tuna and salmon sashimi. The tuna was a bit bland and almost too cold. The salmon was really, really good, and the proper temperature. I also sampled the unagi, ikura, and hamachi nigiri sushi. The unagi was the best of the bunch. The ikura (with quail egg) came in second and the hamachi was disappointingly tasteless. However, here again, the pieces of fish were large to the point of being almost too big. Another observation was that the rice seemed a bit old - it was somewhat hard. Wife had toro sushi and raved over it. The place does a brisk takeout business as evidenced by the fact there were six sushi chefs at the bar, fully engaged in preparing food while we sat there in a practically empty restaurant. We would go back there simply because this restaurant offers a lot of bang for the buck. The sushi and sashimi here, I would categorize as very good. Not great, but very good. I do not believe they have a liquor license, though.
