Tiny, nice restaurant - excellent place to have lunch. I would recommend to go for one of the hot dishes with chicken. Friendly service!

“Great location, great food!! ”

We got the pumpkin Crocette, an absolute must. Check this place out for the environment and great food, its tapas style so come prepared to share.

“Great food with great entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

What a night! The food in this place is EXCELLENT! To go with the exceptional food there is a very vocal restaurant staff - each guest is welcomed and farewelled with a round of Japanese hooting and hollering. There is a range of sake to suit each budget and taste. Prepare to have some fun - hoot along with the waiting staff for some extra fun! Prepare for a great gastro experience - try the Black Cod.

“Go to Guu on Thulow instead of this!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

We went to Guu on Thurlow once and were amazed by how delicious all the dishes were. We wanted to try it once more, but they were fully booked. So we ended up in Guu Robson and that was a mistake. Tuna steak was over cooked and it smelled awful. So we returned it. The beef Yaki Udon (which was to die for in Guu Thurlow) turned up OK, but nothing special. Bacon wrapped mushrooms was so tough and drenched in oil that we left it on the plate.
The reason I am giving three stars is the servers that were accommodating and helpful.

“Good food and good noise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013 via mobile

It was one of the very best restaurants in Vancouver. Good food, good people, good service, and best of all, good noise. This is a restaurant you could not miss, even though the restaurant front is small. BEWARE, this store packs a wallop of a "fusion of flavour" punch.
