Me and my husband work around this property and take the occasional lunch break here. I truly love this place, it's easy to miss but worth the find as it's always such fresh food and made with real care. I felt like I could have a nice and wonderful conversation with the owners while ordering (which I did) while I waited outside for my take out I just enjoy the trees and birds. Didn't have to wait long, but even if I did, it would have been worth it, as it was soooo delicious and a good price.
Discovered Kuma not long ago and have had takeout from them for a few times. Although I have not tried most dishes on the menu, their foods are pretty authentic compared to the Japanese restaurants I have been to. The rice in their sushi and nigiri is nicely done — not too mushy, not too dry. A bit pricey but friendly customer service. I would like to eat in their restaurant once COVID is over as I like their cozy, high ceiling space.
We love the food and the family-friendly atmosphere at Kuma. We miss being able to visit in person!
We were really impressed with the quality of the sushi here. The portion was also quite generous. Usually you either get quality or quantity, but Kuma offers both at a very reasonable price. After spending a day helping my daughter move into her dorm at UBC, we wanted to treat ourselves to a nice dinner, as she will be eating dorm food for the next many months. Being new to the area, we were not sure what to expect, and we were pleasantly surprised to stumble upon such a great Japanese restaurant close to campus.
Family owned, it’s always a delight to go pick up an order and see their kids around. Their food is delicious, price is on point and they have great options for all tastes (whether you like just sushi or also warm meals). It’s a pleasure to continue visiting them for takeout.
