It’s also the only izakaya with a fully customizable party menu, perfect for large groups.
We keep seats for walk-in customers as well. No available seats on opentable does not mean we are fully booked. Please be aware that the time limited per table is two hours during peak hours.
It was easy to reserve and the lunch offerings were exceptional. Thank you!
We love stopping by every time we visit Vancouver. Consistently good food and friendly service.
Good variety of dishes, all of which are tasty. We always save a bit of room for Miso Oden soup. Each person picks their favorite ingredient, but we always have daikon. So simple, but sooo yummy!
Great place with great food and great service. Easy enough to host a large party of 10 if given them enough notice and arriving promptly just before noon.
Exquisite and delicious food, An environment with excellent atmosphere
Took us 45 mins wait for the food. Sake is not chilled just room temperature. Service is very slow.
We were celebrating a bride's upcoming wedding but the server was not
Good as usual. The new preorder lunch service is very convenient and efficient!
4 of us had a variety of dishes - everything was stellar. Our server was new it seemed, so we could forgive her for seeming a little overwhelmed and forgetting to check on us. We had to flag her down for additional drinks and food. One item seemed to be forgotten by either the kitchen or her, but when we asked about it, it came right away.
Took forever for waiters to come
Saw quite a few Stewarts running around on the patio. But other than that everything was very good.
Reasonably priced with a variety of food for Bento Box. The only thing is that they should have a Bento box without sashimi as not everyone eats sashimi, and the chef has simply given us one more piece of Chicken Karage, wished that he could have offered other sushi. The Sake Salted Caramel ice cream is a must try, the sake flavor is well-balanced by the pinch of saltiness . For 2 people, the bill summed up to under $50 all inclusive.
We had our wedding anniversary lunch there. Food was outstanding and service was great!
Ebi mayo rocks my world. Wash it down with a perfect frozen Moscow Mule! Best way to spend your summer evening.
Brought a few people who haven't been here before. Advised that the izakaya are small dishes but they have some regular size dishes such as the sushi, bowls, etc.
The food was tasty however there doesn't seem to much difference between the small and regular size izakaya dishes.
The food is delicious and great for sharing. They have really good service
Normally LOVE this place, but the service on Saturday was horrific. After taking our drink order, it took them forever to come back and get our food order. Our food came eventually but we had no plates or utensils. And after asking for more chopsticks...we waited another 10 mins before we could flag a waitress down only to find out they had run out of chopsticks! Another 10 minutes before we got forks 🙄 The food was great as usual, but they really need to hire more staff especially for the weekends as it's obvious they are overwhelmed.
Only complaints is it was very loud in there and our server hardly spoke English . Food was all really great though!
A little pricey for the dish size but very tasty!
Great food and service as always. The menu is a little limited as far as guu's go but the patio is great and you can always get a table.
The service is perfect! Although we have lots of people, they provide the good service.
Went here for lunch and it was great! Loved the selection of lunch options. The service is slow so if you’re in a rush, this may not be the right place for you.
The ambient environment is really nice! Lunch specials took a while to prepare but tasted great.
guy was guulicious! guy was guulicious! guy was guulicious
Place is lovely! Great good, nice service. Haven’t had anything I didn’t like there !! Tontoro is a must, it’s tender and moist. To die for.
Thank you for your review! We love the Tontoro ourselves as well. Come back again soon! Arigato!
Wonderful food and beautiful downtown rooftop garden location with very reasonable prices. Small plates allow you to try many different things. We will be back for more!
Thank you for your review. Please come back again and try out new things on our special menu soon!
Good place for a date or just hanging with some friends would recommend trying the chicken karage it's is delicious
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us! Please come by to check out all the other amazing dishes we have to offer!
Waiter took forever to bring us the bill. Then, the bill was wrong. Then, the car machine did not work. Then, the waiter cannot deal with cash as she cannot do simple math.
In short, waited for over 45 minutes for bill and everything and received no discount. I was late returning to work from my lunch because of this. They should compensate their customers for such inconvenience.
Extremely POOR service!
Great food and ambiance! Remember to preorder so you get discount for lunch.
Thank you for your review! Please come by again soon! Arigato!
I've come here a few times before, this time with a much larger party. As usual the food came out pretty quick and was delicious. It seemed like they may have been understaffed though as it would take us a long time to get our orders taken. Overall, I would definitely come again. Maybe as a preemptive measure management should assess the quality of work their servers can commit to depending how full the restaurant is.
Thank you for your review and comment. We will look into increasing our service quality so that you will have no problems ordering when desired. Hope to see you back here soon!
Lovely tucked-away restaurant in the heart of downtown. A nice, reasonably priced lunch spot with a friendly atmosphere. Arigato!
Thank you for your review! Hope to see you back for lunch, or possibly dinner soon! Arigato!
Food was honestly really good, I got the kakuni and for $10 the quality is more than you expect for sure. For downtown prices were good too. Would come back again
Thank you very much for your review. Please come back and try out all of our other dishes soon!
The food is delicious as always and the ambiance is amazing especially on a sunny day like last Friday. Though I wish the wait time can be reduced, otherwise everything's really good!
Thank you for your review and input! We look forward to serving you again soon!
Good service and atmosphere
Nice location, food was well priced and some of the dishes were exceptionally tasty.
Thank you for your review! We hope to see you again soon!
Back after 3 or 4 years, it was difficult 2 embrace the changes:
First diner @ 11:30, I had 2 summon service @ front of the house, then again 2 order @ 11:50. W the L crowd arriving, I boxed up most of my food.
Very disappointing indeed!
Thank you for your feed back. We are sorry to hear about your experience, and will definitely look into what we can improve to increase our customer satisfaction. Hope you will stop by again in the near future and try us out again.
Table was a bit small for 6 people, but we had a good experience overall.
Thank you for your feedback! Hope to see you again soon, arigato!
Good food, great terrace.
Thank you for your review! Please come by again and enjoy our patio & fresh air!
The appetizers arrived after someone got their main meal. The rest of the meals were scattered arriving over 45 minutes. One person did not get their meal at all. Didn't have time to stay for dessert because it took 1 hour and 30 minutes to get the food. Extremely noisy. Lots of yelling from waite staff (traditional) and the music was really loud. Decor was like a cafeteria. Lots of people though. Food was good. Would not go back.
We are sorry to hear about your experience. Most of our dishes are served as they are finished cooking, just like an Izakaya in Japan. We'll be looking to see what we can do to improve service to all customers. Thank you very much for your feedback and insight.
