Excellent izakaya restaurant specializing in grilled skewers of meat. Excellent service. Takes reservations.

Make reservations before going because the capacity is pretty small and the volume of patrons are large. Order a lot of different skewers that they fresh grill on the spot, and also Izakaya type dishes. All the dishes are well prepared and you can tell...More

Their food used to be good and fresh. However, the last couple times I went there, food tends to be over-salted. They used to have a risotto that I like a lot, which is no longer on the menu However, other foods are still in...More

This is a small Japanese restaurant with very limited seating and almost no ambience. However, the food is amazing, if you pick the right dishes. We ordered 36 skewers (nine different types and ended up ordering more. It is not because of the small size...More

I've been to a few Yakitori places with the kids when living in Asia and this one in Vancouver rates as the best (and most fun) so far. Great food (chicken Yakitori was the hit of the night) and atmosphere although some may find it...More

Love the food here. Charcoal grill so yummy. Always full so make reservations if possible. It's not a big place. They only let you sit for 1.5 or 2 hrs, which is ok but a bit annoying. Portions very small, like 1 or 2 sticks...More

Portions are really small and the bill adds up quickly if you don't watch it. Better to go to Kingyo a couple of blocks south is better.

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
