“Great fast food rice bowl”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Ordered the short ribs on rice. Meat was tasty. Served with some lettuce and green onions over rice. Bone was taken out of the short rib which I enjoyed. Wish there were more vegetables but great nonetheless.

“Basic but plain Japanese fast food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013

I tried this small cafe just to try something different. Prices are reasonable and the service is quick (think Japanese fast food). The menu is small but interesting, specialising in a variety of rice bowls. The problem is the food is not all that flavourful, and there is not a lot of meat in the dish. There are better options in the area.

“Good, inexpensive Japanese Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

On a rainy day in VanCity, this place always hits the spot. The beef bowls are very good here and the staff is very friendly. There may be some language issues from time to time, but everything is simple and very tasty. If you are on a budget, or otherwise just want to keep expenses down and have a good meal, I definitely recommend this place.

“Good value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013

If you're a budget traveler, this is one of many selections on the block with good prices. We tried the bimbim, and I would say it was average taste-wise and relatively filling. But for the price, it was a good value--not a huge amount of meat in the dish. The wait staff are very friendly and efficient.

“Yummiest Beef Bowl”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2012

Perfect on a cold, rainy day. Beef bowls were exactly what they are supposed to be. As good as we've had in Japan. Not really cheap, but good value.
