Great food, very authentic flavors. This is Japanese food at its best. Next time when we are in Vancouver, we will definitely go back.

We found this restaurant by chance and were lucky to get a place at the bar. Food (chopped calamari, salmon nagiri and Kobe beef) and atmosphere were amazing! Make sure to book in advance, can get busy at prime times.

Having been in several izakayas in Japan, this is the best izakaya I've been to in North America. Asahi on tap. Here's what we ordered: started out with three kinds of sashimi: ahi tuna, yellow tail and salmon. As much as I adore tuna and...More

We had a reservation at 6:00 pm and the place was full. Book ahead. The food was varied and delicious. The beef tongue and corn on the cob are a must. You won't be disappointed.

We really enjoyed Kingyo. Beware - it is not the typical high end restaurant. When we made our first reservation we were warned that our table would be given away if we were 15 mins late and we had to finish in 90 mins. The...More

We queued just before 5:30, got a great table, loved the menu, probably tried too much of it, as it was so delicious..... the whole team looked like they worked as one.

All we ordered was amazing: tuna tataki, Chinese ribs pork and tommato kimchi. Highly recommended if you stand by Vancouver. Don't forget to book in advance!

We stopped here for lunch and were able to get a seat straight away. The food was absolutely the best Japanese either of us had had. We ordered the sashimi and the beef. The service was friendly and prompt! We will be back!

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

I don't think they have a sample dinner menu. But you can check their menu on their website. Their group restaurant, Suika, instead, has a sampler appetizer menu. Not the main dinner though.
