“Lunch was an experience”
Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

Came for lunch and was not sure what to expect. Pleasantly surprised with what we had. We ordered the $15 set lunch and everything was delicious. The assortment of goodies came out a la carte to share. Sweet, sour, spicy it was an explosion of flavours in my mouth. What a great little place to try out.

“Very enjoyable restaurant”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Vancouver has a few decent sized "Korea Towns" including the downtown area at the bottom of Robson and Denman streets. Sura is one of my favorite Korean places in that area. It is a bit expensive (Korean restaurants are a bit more pricey than others) but this place is worth it. Great atmosphere also if you like places that are a little refined. I would definitely rate this place as excellent value and always enjoy going here. Always full of Koreans too ;)

“Visited twice in our 5 day visit!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

I am half Korean so I have tried a lot of Korean bbq, and this was incredible. This place has such a fun atmosphere. Cooking your own bbq can be fun, but when you're hungry and don't wanna smell like bbq... This was a great alternative. The only down side is... No reservations, so in early march when it's cold at night there's all these people standing at the front of the restaurant. The food is worth any wait.

“First Time trying Korean Food!”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

I went to Sura with a couple co-workers, one of whom is Korean and wanted to share a traditional meal with us. We tried to get a last minute reservation last Friday but were told we could not as it was full. So we drove there and ended up just walking in and getting a table.....it WAS packed and there was line up outside for most of the time we were inside! We ordered the Set Course lunch which is $20 per person (minimum 2 ppl) and consists of about 18 separate dishes. WOW, what a feast! I don't even know what some of the dishes were but we had soups, salads, a couple pork dishes, beef (bulgogi), squid, fish (whole, fried), potato pancake, rice and a bunch of side dishes. I am a pretty adventurous eater and tried everything and it was all delicious. I told my husband I want to bring him to Sura because he would appreciate the food. However, I do know some friends who would not have done so well with this meal. Their loss.
