Diner Reviews
  • "Good food, but small portions. Sushi was really small and priced more expensive than typical sushi spots. Good service and a nice location."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "first time visit. Loved the food, great izakaya menu, and not as noisy/energeting as some others (like Guu). Those can be fun sometimes - but sometimes you want to enjoy your meal with out staff screaming out orders, hellos and goodbyes every five minutes. Foie Gras sushi is a must try. We had a variety of dishes for the four of us and everything was beautiful and tasty. will def go again."

  • "This was one of my best experiences using a groupon. I really enjoyed the food. It was fun and the coctails were great as well. The service was attentive.The foie gras sushi was delicious as were the ribs. I will most definitely return!"

  • "This restaurant has a great selection of japanese pub style food, and everything is fresh and ready quickly. Certain items are half-price for "hapa-hour' 5:30-6:30, making the restaurant much more affordable! The service is perfect and the owners and servers are incredibly friendly. The atmosphere and music etc. is also great."

  • "Mostly friendly and good service. Half the food was great, the other half was on the salty side. Our group ordered the fixed price menu"

  • "The dishes are very tasty, but a bit small, tapas size, I guess. Great to have drinks and just hang out with friends."

  • "Second time, quiet on a weekday. Excellent non-sushi authentic Japanese dishes/tapas. Be prepared for new tastes and textures. Super friendly staff, wonderful experience."

  • "We had a perfect night. We started with a great table and server. Two important factors to a great night. The energy of the place was so awesome on a night where the weather was pretty awful. Our food came fast but not too fast. The server was attentive but left us alone as we were on date. The music was fun. All around a perfect night. Arigatō Hapa!"

  • "I went to Happa Izakaya with two co-workers as one of them was visiting from a satellite office in another country. Nonetheless, Happa's robust menu made for a perfect match with the different palates around the table. In addition to the great food and fantastic flavours we can't say enough about the friendly and energetic staff we met that nigh. A truly good spot AND it's affordable!!"

  • "We've been here for dinner on a number of occasions. I have also been to the Vancouver locations. Great for drinks, wine and Japanese tapas. The menu and daily specials could use some updates but overall I have a good experience every time. Will come back."

  • "My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our late dinner on Sat night. The food was delicious and flavourful, old school hip hop was playing, and the football game was on - nothing to complain about!"
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "The food was great, service was prompt and friendly and the atmosphere was comfortable and inviting. I love Japanese food and its nice to have an alternative to just sushi...I would go back and reco to friends."
    Dined on 1/7/2014
  • "The service was good, but the good was only average. Sushi was overpriced and not worth it. The starters were good, especially the tacos. Sashimi was good also."
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "Staff were great but food was just so-so. too few selections and they didn't taste exceptionally good. the noise level was TERRIBLE. I find this place is more like a bar/club (by the noise level, the music they played and the way their staff dressed. They were most busy after 9pm rather than the usual dinner time), they had the music on very loud that you can hardly have a conversation with others, and people around speak loudly because of that too, very uncomfortable. So if you are looking for a more authentic japanese izakaya place, i would not suggest Hapa."

  • "11 course set menu was delicious and the portions were just right - we were stuffed by the time that the last course came out. And the servers were just lovely people - very helpful with recommending sake for folks who have never had any sake beyond the house stuff you get with your usual sushi fare! Music was a bit loud but I'm sure that's subjective and probably has more to do with our aging hearing."

  • "I love to have one of these in my neighbourhood. Friendly staff. Good service and tasty menu. First visit but will definitely go back. Favourites include scallop tartare and ika wasa. Nice twist on gyozas using lotus root. Dishes are great for sharing. Atmosphere is hip, fun and casual. Went with friends but I would definite sit at the bar on my own. Wish I lived closer...."
