“Great sushi and amazing value!”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

Great service, amazingly fresh sushi and all you can eat for $14 after 9.30pm - what's not to like!

“GOOD VALUE”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

We had the all you can eat lunch, all the usual offerings, not a limited menu, it was busy, the staff were friendly and courteous, the food was brought out fast and well presented. $13.95 each, with tip and tax $35

“Okay. Not Great by Vancouver Standards”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

The sushi is not high quality. But if you eat lots, you can get your money's worth with the AYCE. But you may leave disappointed.

“Low quality”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

Staying nearby at the Best Western (excellent) at English Bay, I went to the Tanpopo on Sunday evening. Food was not fresh, wasabi was developing a crust and the picked ginger was wilting. All you can eat buffet style restaurant (so I should have had a clue at the quality) left me feeling ill until I eventually threw up. Not recommended when there are so many good restaurants within all the surrounding blocks.

“Not Good Anymore / Don't waste your money”
Reviewed 2 July 2011

there must be new owners, things have really changed the last few times we went there for all you can eat dinner, the restaurant was empty at 6 pm ??? . It used to be one of my favorite sushi spots worth driving to from burnaby and i would to company there from out of town we were always happy, i had great fresh sushi and the raw oysters were fab. !
Well thoses days are gone no raw oysters included in the all you can eat . Bad service ! isn't all, the food all tasted old and some of it was even moldy tasting. the restaurant had no costomers and no line up, We were wondering its 6 pm friday night where are the people? it was totally yukkie, don't waste your money vancouver has tons of great japenese food!
