Don't miss this one!

We had the zakkushi set which was awesome. Great flavours, tender meat. the vegetable set was very flavourful as well. We had the grilled rice balls, but did not enjoy these as much. The atmosphere was great and the service was quick.We will definitely go again when we're next in Vancouver.

All the grilled items are so yummy. They offer a variety plate that's best value and gives you opportunity to sample various grilled meats. Get the grilled rice ball...so yummy. Place is small and gets crowded during peak time. Try it and be transported to Japan for an experience like no other.

The Zakkushi yakitori don special was so good we would order it once a week! We went to the location in west 4th that is no longer there. What a disappointment to see it go. They all yelled goodbye in Japanese leaving the restaurant which was always great!

I showed up at the main street location. As I didn't have a reservation,I had to wait a few minutes. Once I was seated I was told I have only one hour to order and eat. I ordered the united shooter and negi are (fried chicken gizzard with onion sauce). From the regular menu I ordered kurage (jellyfish salad with... More

We were a little apprehensive when told we would have to sit at the bar for our meal, but it worked oput really well. In no time we were getting the heads up from strangers on either side and the benefit of local knowledge. Meanwhile the floorshow of barbecue cooking continued to the repeat chant of welcome and thankyou in... More

My husband and I ate here on our last night in Vancouver and we were NOT disappointed! There are so many cool things to try on the menu and they are smaller portions so you can get a taste of it all. Definitely try the quail eggs and don't miss the grilled corn. Our server was lovely and we never... More

My husband and I were walking down denman looking for a place to eat. We happened to walk past this place and someone was walking out and I could smell the aroma of meat and charcoal. It smelled soo good. So we decided to try it. The place was packed so I thought this place must be good. We tried... More

I've seen the Japanese charcoal cooking on travel shows so wanted to try it. This place is set up like a Sushi restaurant but instead of sushi chefs they have charcoal chefs. The 5 piece sampler for $9.20 is a good way to start. I also ordered the scallop, sardine, etc. The skewers are very good, most do not come... More
