“Excellent Japanese food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

I have visited Chou Izakaya several times in the past months, and it has been consistently excellent.

The menu offers extensive choice, and unlike other Izakayas in town it offers a lot of items with raw fish. Their grilled squid with butter soy (6$) and grilled eggplant with bonito flakes on toasted sweet miso sauce (5$) are some of my favourite dishes from their menu.
Make sure you also check the specials on the wall - their spicy tuna bowl (6$) is both delicious and filling.
The rolls are nothing special, and though good, it is not what makes this restaurant shines.

Chou has a great atmosphere, and it's very welcoming and fun.
The service is fast and attentive, and always with a smile. Can't wait to come back!
