Scallop Mayo Pizza
baby scallop mayo pizza, topped w/ cheese
Chicken Teriyaki Don w/ Wasabi Mayo
We were happy that we could still dine out on the patio.
It was for my partner's birthday and we had a wonderful meal. Everything was delish!
A Japanese getto, but the food is somewhat modern, not fine dining, traditional meets a little modern. Not bad sashimi platter.
We showed up and despite booking a table through Open Table In advance they put us on stools at a bar. No one could enter or exit the patio without coming within a foot or two of us. We left because we weren’t provided a table and didn’t feel they had planned for us. Considering the current restrictions they didn’t place us where social distancing was possible from other guests or servers.
Not impressed in the least and had to scramble to find somewhere else to eat.
This Guu location is a family fave. We always have great service and delicious eats.
The 1st time here. The foods are fine, nothing wow
Reasonable price and feel homey.
Good food good service, small portion for the price, but its a izakaya....
A nice authentic experience. Clean restaurant and attentive service. Food was fresh and very good quality. They put in the effort to make our dine in a pleasant one. Definitely reccomend this location!
The service and food were really good! Would recommend if you like Japanese food
Consistent food quality and great customer service. It remains our go-to place for years!
Fantastic food and great service. Been going there for years and just love it! Fresh ingredients; just delicious!
The service is good and the food is yummy. Definitely will go again!
Wish they brought back some of the older menu items
Had a really nice late dinner with drinks. The food was excellent. Everything we ordered so good. Nice ambience too. Would highly recommend and would definitely come back the next time I’m in Vancouver.
Delicious food! A lot different from all the other guu’s downtown
Great lunch with wife and kid
Love this place! Food is delicious and service is great. Friendly staff and a fun place to dine!
Definitely recommend this to anyone!
Awesome food and awesome service!!!! They have hand sanitizer upon entry + at every table.
Great food!! Friendly staff
Everything was delicious and the staff were on top of COVID procedures and cleaning.
Good experience, good food for sharing. I love the atmosphere and service
Every neighborhood deserves a gem like Guu Garlic -- the food is utterly delicious and of great value. We had the Sirloin Steak w/ garlic onion sauce, scallop mayo pizza, chicken teriyaki don, and orange cheesecake. The mains come in generous portions with choices of daily side dishes and cooked vegetables, balancing out the proteins. Our server doesn't speak English fluently but service was attentive nonetheless.
My wife and I *love* this place... We came here about once a week while we were dating, and this is the default place that we take friends who are visiting from out of town. Food is fantastic, service is great, and the atmosphere is usually lively without being too loud—you can have a conversation with your friends.
It's usually best to either make reservations or get there no later than 5:15pm on a weekend... It does get and remain busy.
Always a brilliant food experience!!
Food was not as good as it has been in the past. Came out quickly however we left feeling unsatisfied.
Food is disgusting! Didn’t go for a year, food seems so different and low quality!! Especially don’t eat sashimi, my friend and I didn’t feel well the other day.
Fun experience sitting on the ground. We ordered lots of dishes to share family style and all was very tasty.
Great food! We tried lots of random dishes on the 1st page of their menu and they all taste great!
Probably one of the worst Japanese meal in my life. Foods were badly prepared. Sashimi was not up to the quality for the price they charged. Chicken namban was over fried and super dried. They should take a higher level of measurement to redesign and double check their menu. I would recommend people to go Miku for better quality. Price is about the same with much better service and food quality in Miku.
Great service and yummy food. Would like to go again
I go here often even though it is out of the way for me. Food and customer service has always been great. Love this place!
Service was amazing! Food was amazing! Will definitely come back to try more tasty dishes
Every time we come to Vancouver THIS is one place we always eat at! We love the food, service, ambience, just everything about this place. We feel like we are back in Japan! Best Izakaya experience in Vancouver 😊
Food was just okay in my books. We enjoyed original guu much more!
As authentic Japanese Izakaya experience as it gets! Besides visiting Japan it does not get any better. The food was excellent and the service was fast.
Was very good, worth every penny. Found the meal to provide my family a perfect celebration meal for my sisters pregnancy.
Felt like I was in Japan with such traditional Nippon cuisine. Udon with beef, sashimi combo, and uni hot stove were delicious. Service levels with Japanese attendants truly made the experience authentic. Highly recommended.
Staff were friendly, courteous, and efficient. Food generally tasted good; we found it a bit too heavily flavored even with rice. Price was reasonable.
food is fairly good, portion is small, more of a drinking place, good service.
We are from out of town and our good friend who is from Vancouver told us that this is a place that we shouldn't miss. I made the reservation and it was very easy. Arrives on time and immediately, we were seated. Service was great. We orders the most popular, like the yaki udon, scallop mayo pizza, sashimi, tuna tataki, steamed mussels in sake and garlic butter...etc. The taste was so good that it was like we are in Japan. Even my super picky son claimed that the place reminded him when he visited Japan last summer. We highly recommended and definitely make a reservation.
Daughter loved the "carbonara" with roe.
