“Japanese tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Food is good for sharing with friends as it is tapas style. We tried Kobe beef (on hot stone), chicken karaage and cod in miso sauce, all are good, portions are small (except the chicken). For dessert I had the frozen green tea creme brulee, it's great!

“Brilliant experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I thought this place was amazing - the food was brilliant but the service from Kaori was straight out of the top drawer - fun and extremely efficient cant wait to go back!

“Very good but pricey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Many good dishes, but don't go for sushi. Also their "pints" of beer are more like sleeves. But definitely one of Vancouver's best Japanese places.

“Terrible place, do not go here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Honestly, this is the numero uno ichi-ban best Japanese restaurant I've ever been too... it is amazing. Exquisite food, wonderful staff and service, authentic atmosphere, comfortable and non-scene.
So please don't ruin this treasure... do not go here, do not tell your friends.

“My fave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

This is my "special occasions" restaurant cause it's really expensive. If you go in September though for their anniversary celebration they have amazing drink specials (oh ya food specials too). A must everytime I go is the sea urchin bibimbap and the pressed sushi.
