The food is a diverse and changing menu of creative deliciousness. The drink menu is also full of treats. The atmosphere is really fun with the staff constantly welcoming or saying farewell to customers and calling out orders to each other. This is definitely not the place to go if you want to have a romantic date, but its the perfect place for a small group.

We do it at 22:00 on Sunday and still a busy restaurant. The food is good and perfect with beer! And you must try their ALE which is very special!

If you are looking for some authentic dishes, this is definitely a great place worth visiting. The loud hurrahs you hear when entering or leaving the establishment are not just random acts of drunkenness but purposeful welcomes and goodbyes to the restaurant itself. Guu prides itself on its local atmosphere and variety of food options. If your stomach isn't ready for exploring, you might want to warm up to this place by starting out elsewhere and coming back another day.

My family of four ate here. We had many tasty dishes and we all had a drink our bill was almost 100. As you walk in the whole staff yells welcome in Japanese. The shouting doesn't stop there the whole order is yelled out as you order. The tuna sashimi was our favorite along with the Kim chee fried rice and deep fried chicken. Our least favorite was the udon. I don't think we will go back but it was worth the experience. Super fun.

Great food loud fun atmosphere. Very hip and not for a quiet dinner. We had to wait for 30 minutes outside but it was worth the to seats at the bar. The chefs are all yelling back and forth to the servers who place their orders all in Japanese which is very entertaining. The oysters were delicious and the pea leaf salad special fantastic. But our favorite dish was the fried shrimp with puffed egg chili mayo was to die for!
