The staff were really helpful and happy to offer advice if asked. The selection we were recommended for 2 adults and 2 children was perfect. We had a mix of different sushi along with Gyoza's and beef. Really enjoyed it and would thoroughly recommend.

Great place for fine dining with tasty dishes. Their lunch menu is quite different from their dinner. Try all of their chef signature dishes. Yam tempura fries hot tapas, Sockey Jalepeno Aburi, Malibu roll and black sesame tuna tataki were our favorites.

Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its
rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of
Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place
responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row'
might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques
and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the
waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting
