Even though Gastown and Kitanoya Guu were crazy busy (there was a wait for seating), they accommodated our take-out request, gave us a reasonable time window, and delivered the goods!

Even though Gastown and Kitanoya Guu were crazy busy (there was a wait for seating), they accommodated our take-out request, gave us a reasonable time window, and delivered the goods! Our order was delicious.....not the best sushi ever, but certainly more than adequate for our take-home meal. Looks... More

This Gastown location had wonderful food and the waitstaff created a wonderful atmosphere. Definitely get the sockeye salmon and the tuna. And afterwards you can stroll through Gastown

When I visited my friend in Vancouver, he took me to this restaurant. They served nice foods and smiles. Staff were friendly. Usually, the restaurant is busy and we have to wait for awhile, but making a reservation beforehand can solve this problem. Good place to have a nice time. Highly recommend for couple, friends, and families.

I'm a long time customer and I love the menu of this location of Guu, but the last few times I've eaten here, the service has been atrocious. On my last visit, after asking no less than three different servers for water (not a refill, just a first beverage), one of our party got up and went and grabbed a... More

I did not like this place. I came here at 5:22pm on a Friday because I was told it would be packed, with a line-up. The place was EMPTY. I was seated by the window, but it was still very dark and the place just looked dirty and greasy. I ordered the following: tuna tataki, salmon sashimi, agedashi tofu, deep... More

Tried all kinds of small dishes and the bimbimbap. All are excellent. Long lines at night and weekends, so better make a reservation.

The sushi here is one of the best I have ever eaten. So fresh and tasty. The service was very good. The price was also right about 60$ for 3 of us.

My family and I visited Vancouver in March and found this place while wandering around in Gastown - we absolutely love the food here - we liked every dish that we tried (have virtually gone through 1/2 the menu in our week here!) but our favorites: yakiudon, takoyaki, sashimi (super fresh), hakke (mackerel), pork cheeks, spicy agedashi tofu, and green...

Made a reservation for a group of 10 friends and last Thursday night. Service was slow, and most of us found our food being served lukewarm, not to mention a long wait time. At the end of the night when we asked for our separate bills she said she wasn't able to split them. This was a giant hassle as... More

I can't say enough about this place! I've been going there for years and it absolutely never disappoints! Authentic Japanese Izakaya - loud, fun, tasty tapas and cute cocktails. Always get the maguro five colour sauce, salmon 7 friends, bimbob stone bowls and octopus balls!! Always exciting specials and great atmosphere... And AFFORDABLE!! Always leave there stuffed and happy with... More
