Guu is a Japanese pub; no sushi is served. There is always a line, so leave your name and mobile number to be paged. One can choose raw seafood, appetizers, and udon. Do not choose beef tongue as it is very tough.

Incredible variety of superb seafood and noodle dishes. Not your typical sushi place. The atmosphere is loud and friendly, with shout out loud hellos, goodbyes and orders by staff.

Don't blink or you will walk right past this place ! This is where the locals go for a bite and now we know why ! The place is small and you might have to share a table but that is part of the fun . We sat with some locals and some travelers like ourselves and got to see what others got and had a great time talking and having GREAT food!! the place in fast paced and you might have to wait but WAIT its worth it !! we had several small plates and loved them all .

This Japanese tapas-style restaurant opens at 5:30 to a line of people waiting for it to open. I have the impression that it takes reservations but we waited and walked in to get a table. There is a fair amount of counter space where many folks go to eat. The menu is varied, with very tasty soba and udon dishes, the whole fish was very tasty, the grilled marinated beef was tasty. We had sashimi salmon that was excellent.

Place is very basic, no real decor or style to it.
Loved the fact they were playing 90s hiphop in the background.
Food was simple, fresh and very very tasty.
Service could be faster.
