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!

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!

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.

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.

Trendy place, very pretty inside, good service. Not the place if you're looking for sushi, but they serve real Japanese food here.

Good people watching.
