“must go place for dining out”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

one of the best izakaya restaurant in North America! Every time we visit Vancouver, we eat at this restaurant. Sometimes 2 nights in a row. It's not a big place and limited seating area, but the food is great! Definitely will go back this place.

“Awesome food!”
Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

So we went while visiting Vancouver and we were very glad we did. We tried a bunch of the menu items including the beef tongue, fried octopus balls, beef potatoe gallettes, and a beef soup. Our favorite was the Kimichi fried rice we ordered it last thinking we would take it with us and eat it later, but we devoured it it was so good.

Didnt expect to find so much good Japanese food in Vancouver but this one is good. Service is casual and relaxed while serving you great Japanese comfort food.

“A must gonin Vancouver”
Reviewed 19 January 2014 via mobile

The restaurant is very authentic. You see a lot of Japanese people and not that much trourists. It seems to be a local traditional place.
The dishes are quite smal, like tapas. So if you are going as a couple you can try several. We tried 6 and all of them were incredibly tasty.
Special stat to the Tuna Tataki and the Udon.
House sake is delicious.
Seat in the bar because the cooks are part of the experience.
One of the best restaurants i have ever been to!!!
