This place was very busy and we could see why. Nice food, nice atmosphere. The kobe beef was delicious but not a lot in each serving (though this was expected due to the high quality and price of the beef!). The salmon carpaccio was beautiful...More

Japanese food experience like never before! Tapas style Japanese fusion food with great service, modern decor, very fast service. Loved everything we tried. Tempura corn, sashimi salad, and especially beef tongue that you cook yourself on a hot stone - out of this world. Snow...More

Stopped in for lunch and had a delicious meal. Tuna/avocado dish was the highlight. Friendly service and quick food even though it was crowded.

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along

I don't think they have a sample dinner menu. But you can check their menu on their website. Their group restaurant, Suika, instead, has a sampler appetizer menu. Not the main dinner though.
