Foursquare Tips

  • The essential Vancouver Izakaya experience. Get there at lunch to score one of the Deluxe Bento Boxes (only 10 made each day) to try a whole heap of absolutely everything. [Eater 38 Member]
  • I'd fathom to say the lunch here is more authentic than in Tokyo
  • Pork belly "kakuni" rice in sizzling stone bowl
  • Go to Kingyo and order the Rockin Kobe and a Yellow Tail and Avocado salad. Oh, and don't forget a large cold Sake.
  • I always go for the lunch specials :)
  • The service here is top notch.
  • Good tan tan noodle. Go very late if you don't want to be rushed by the wait staff.
  • really great vegetarian options and service! the avocado pressed sushi is on point
  • This is how good the special lunch bento is (was).
  • New to sake? try the sake flight
  • (chicken karage ) recommended and tongue on the stone.
  • Best service!!! I didn't know the lunch and dinner menus were different but they let me order a lunch dish anyway! The negitoro bowl is the best!
  • Batshit crazy black cod cheek karaage up in here this week
  • Try the invincible and undefeated tan tan noodle (love the name), the kobe beef stone and the tuna tataki.
  • Order the deluxe bento box. Great value at $16! But it's only available for lunch. And they only make 100 orders per day and they usually sell out. You can order it over the phone though. ;)
  • Lunch special bento is truly special. They only make 10 per day so get there early. Great way to sample many items if you can't decide what to have!
  • Beer pitcher and and food combos ~$20 after 10 pm..
  • Best Japanese lunch in Vancouver. Try the Deluxe set, Tonkatsu set, or Kakuni Bowl. Unforgettable.
  • Beef tongue on hot stone is a must! Tuna carpaccio is great too. For lunch the pork katsu is delicious too!
  • Try the stone-grilled Kobe beef.
