Shizen Ya in Fairview - Light at the end of a long dark tunnel

lunchslut | May 3, 2012 11:07 PM

Shizen Ya recently opened on West Broadway/Fairview has introduced a bright light of hope in a neighborhood littered with sushi extremes ( a neighborhood which boasts Tojo's but is yet surrounded by a sea of sub par cheap "scary" sushi joints). I have bought a lot of sushi that has made it directly to the trash on the strip from Cambie to Granville...

Shizen Ya boasts healthy, additive free, vegetarian friendly sushi (think brown rice and rolls filled with veggie and greens) yet does not compromise on flavour and does offer fish and meat dishes in addtion to the abundant veggie options. Qualtiy and fresheness are not compromised and the menu items are consistent with the greater care that comes with other moderately priced Japanese run establishments.

Be warned, this is is not a destination joint - unless you are stuck with a pesky vegetarian... and if you are even remotely offended by the idea of brown rice just don't bother...

It is, however, the much needed moderately priced sushi place the neighborhood has been lacking.
