The secondary school ended the school year in the middle of June except for those who need to sit for provincial exam. Instead of going out for cake meet with Polly, we brought along our eldest sons (Arkensen and Webbie) who are in their early secondary grades for an all you can eat sushi lunch at Kisha Poppo Japanese Restaurant. They cant get enough of sushi.
Kisha Poppo has two locations in the Lower Mainland, one in Vancouver and the other in Richmond. We went to the one in Ironwood Plaza, 1060-11660 Steveston Hwy, Richmond. Although I had checked out the reviews for this restaurant which turned out to be not very good, we just wanted to give it a try. Anyway, most of the all you can eat sushi place have bad reviews.
We were there at 11:30 am where it just opened for lunch. The place actually fills up quite quickly as there were quite a lot of office workers who dine here, perhaps due to the proximity to their offices.
We opted for the All You Can Eat Lunch as the boys can eat a lot. The AYCE lunch is $10.95 for adult on weekday where the menu has 33 items to choose from.
We find that the service is very poor. First of all the service is slow. We have to wait for our food and there were times that our table is empty. We also dont like the way the order is taken. They did not supply an ordering sheet for us to write down our order. Instead, the waitress will take the order verbally and she rushed us through the order process and she seemed impatient when we stop to look at the menu. Overall the food is decent for an AYCE.
The only item the boys like is the salmon sushi. They had 23 pieces of salmon sushi all together.

Sorry to hear your experience was less than stellar.
I gotta say I can only think of one AYCE sushi place where service and food is fairly decent, and that is E-Bei at W.41st/Granville. However the ambience (tight space, loud) and overall cleanliness leaves one wanting.
BC Sushi on Broadway just west of Arbutus has fast service – the waitress has a handheld touchpad and enters the order from the table. The premade items are practically at the table before she leaves.
I have learnt a lot from this blog. Not only cooking but also English even though I have not finished reading all of them.
I am so glad to know a neighourhood who is doing what I am interested in.
Ben and Suanne, I just thought I’d drop by and say that I’ve been reading this blog for a year now and absolutely love your recipes and travelling adventures. Keep it up! I’ve been inspired by all the bloggers out here to start my own blog, based in Vancouver. Please check it out and let me know how you like it – http://tinglingtastebuds.blogspot.com/
I have been there a couple of times for work lunches and, unfortunately, I wished the previous visit would have been the last.
Out of all the AYCE sushi places in Richmond, I think the best (so far) is Ninkazu/Tomokazu which you have already visited.
