We were out for a late dinner and Kingyo happened to be open so we popped in randomly. What a great surprise! The service was great and the food was absolutely delicious. We tried a few different dishes, including tuna sashimi, ramen and the night's...More

We were able to drop in early and grab a table for 5 before another party came in for reservations one hour later. Make sure you get reservations first. Food was superb. Everything we ate here was good. Tuna was great. Service was fast and...More

Great spot for Japanese food in Vancouver. This small place has a great atmosphere. Suggest trying the specials of the week. The bento boxes are a must but there is a very limited supply. Plates are very large and well priced.

There is a reason why this place is so busy all of the time. It's that good. I love the deluxe bento box (one of the best that I have had so come early as they only make 20 per day), their Katsu curry...everything is...More

Went here for dinner on a tip from our concierge. We were looking for an izakaya and he suggested this. We did not have reservations but I was hoping we would be in luck (saturday evening). We arrived and was told 1 hr for party...More

Brilliant restaurant and fantastic service. Perfect for both meat eaters and vegans. Would definitely come again. Try the Kobe Beef on a hot stone. Also all sashimi is incredibly fresh and delicious.

This restaurant is very popular at the WestEnd area of Vancouver near Stanley Park. The place is always packed with the younger crowd with a buzz in the air. The staff is most welcoming and attentive. There is a wide range of inventive food choices....More

My husband and I decided to try Kingyo for our last dinner before flying out of town, and we are SO glad we did. We read overwhelmingly positive reviews online and I have to say that the hype is real. We walked up at 5:30...More

Vancouver is a great city for izakaya restaurants. So many great ones that although I've had Kingyo on my radar for a long time, I hadn't gotten around to it until tonight. I'm glad I finally got there. It's not my favorite, but it's close....More

We had dinner here while in Vancouver. It is a great spot for good Japanese food without the fuss. Must try items include the corn and the black cod. Best to book as it can get busy!

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along

We take reservations for the bento boxes as well. So the best way to get those, give us a call as soon as possible. Otherwise you might need to be here 11:15 or even earlier but we cannot guarantee that if you could get... More
