The decor is really nice. Spicy tuna mango role was good. Assorted tempura was good. But we ordered crab roll ($15), and found shells in the roll. I actually bit into it hard enough it hurt my tooth a little. I told the waitress and the chef offered us another crab roll, which I thought was a nice gesture. But then we found more shells in the second roll. We ordered cheesecake and maccha tiramisu. It took them at least 20 minutes to bring the dessert out though we asked a few time why it was taking so long. When it arrived, ice cream was starting to melt. My daughter said cheesecake was good, but maccha tiramisu ($10) tasted like soggy toast and I couldn't finish it. Given how much they charge for their food, we were disappointed with the quality and service.

I have eaten at the top Japanese restaurants in Metro Vancouver including Tojo's and Octopus Garden is by dar the best Japanese food in Vancouver if not one of the best in all of Canada.

Word of advice to people with some cash to burn, looking to go here or Tojo's: Chances are good (REAL good) that you don't know what you're doing with respect to the menu and your choices, etc. Do yourself a favor with this and throw down some cash and ask for "omakase". The chef decides your course, and will not disappoint. Tojo's does this as well for a minimum amount of buy-in, whereas at Octopus Garden I was asked how much I was willing to spend (minimum $50/person is fair, I feel). The chef and staff were very personable, greatly entertaining, and highly knowledgeable about their job and things related. If you want a premium experience, go here when it's slow or dead, rather than busy. Usually afternoon is best, I find. Hope to see you at the bar there sometime!

After an extensive online search for the best authentic sushi restaurant in Vancouver, we decided on Octopus Garden. We didn't know that omakase opt-in had to be on the phone 24 hours ahead of time, so we just ordered a la carte instead. Uni shooter (large): great for sharing between two people. I really like uni with quail egg. The textures together are a great combination. Because we shared, we used a spoon to eat instead of shooting it down. That was a bit difficult given the egg yolk and grated potato mixture at the bottom were not easy to pick up. Great dish regardless, if you like uni and gooey stuff. Sushi that we ordered: - Snapper - Aji - Scallop - Hamachi chu-toro - Botan ebi - Ikura - Gintoro - Uni - Dungeness crab - Tobiko and quail egg It ended up being a light meal. But there wasn't a lot of variety so we just ordered what we liked out of the limited selection. But the fish was very very fresh and prices were reasonable. Great service too. Next time I'm in Vancouver, I definitely want to go back and try the omakase. It looked great a few seats down from us!

Might be a little long review. Was recommended by a friend, decided to go with two other people. Went at 530pm, hoping it would be pretty quiet (it was). I'm not sure what we expected, maybe a little bit more guidance?? haha. None of us had been to a place like that, and we were seated at the bar. We were a bit confused by the menu, and no one really offered any recomendations while we sat there looking at the waitresses... they were busy with take-out phone calls I think, so it took about 20 minutes for anyone to offer us drinks or anything. We had to ask to order 10 minutes later, as no one had spoken to us?? Chef had been chatting with a couple next to us and he was very nice, we kind of jumped into their conversation, which made us feel more comfortable. When the food finally started coming, it was delicious!! The sushi and tempura is all very good, and the eel was to die for. TLDR; service = a bit slow, must be willing to chit chat I think??? seating = make a reservation if you can, they're open late and most of the tables are reserved as soon as they open. food = expensive, but delicious. you could very well order two things, and be fine. small portions, delicious seafood and really nice presentation. atmosphere = nice layout, lots of sake and liquors to look at. lots of octopus themed things hahaha they give you little octopus gummies after your meal as well, which was cute! take a look at the menu online before going in! They have rooms/tables that seat up to 8 people! so you can make a reservation for a backroom party and drink sake all night hahaha
