They have different lunch specials for different days in a week and the price is good, around $11/person. I had the Friday lunch special that includes sushi, maki roll, miso soup and a small bowl of udon. The amount of foods is generous. However, quality is very average. I get what I pay for so I don't complain. However I have had dinner there before and the foods aren't any better. I am a bit disappointed because I remember that the Guu at Thurlow in Vancouver was very good.

Very disappointing. Food of low quality, limited variety and not cheap. Restaurant stank - needs a serious refurbishment. We arrived at 7.30pm and nearly all of the specials advertised at the door was not available.

My wife and I dined at Guu off Robson on their opening weekend years ago quite by chance as rain caught us off guard. It was magical. Since then we have returned to Vancouver and enjoyed a couple of downtown Guu restaurants. We are Ontarians, and I have eaten at the Church St. Guu half a dozen times, with and without family. All excellent experiences. I was just back in Vancouver and staying near the airport and opted for dinner at Guu Richmond.

I would say the mall location is a turnoff and the restaurant layout has nothing interesting about it; it is like a standard sushi restaurant. The vibe was good and the staff friendly, but it did not feel like a real Izakaya as I have come to recognize the genre. The food was very good, so I left content having enjoyed the beef tongue 3 ways, deep fried cauliflower in spicy sauce (fave!), marinated eggplant, and several sashimi cuts of ultrafresh fish.
I enjoyed my meal but it was not the same vibe as other Guu locations I have been to, including Toronto, so I think I'd head into the city to Guu before choosing Aberdeen.

We went to Guu on Saturday night as a family of 3. The restaurant met every one of my expectations and more. From greetings from everyone on the staff, to prompt service, inventive dishes and great atmosphere - it's a place we'll be going back to. Quality of fish, freshness and texture were unbelievable.
