Great food and attentive service. The place was busy even on a Wednesday but we managed to get a seat relatively quickly. Ordered the Kobe beef on a hot stone which was only 8 pieces but much more than I expected. Their take on tan tan noodles was great along with their chicken wings. Will definitely go back if I'm ever in Vancouver again.

Great spot on Denman. Intimate and funky. Let the chef surprise you and hold the soy sauce.

"GOOD GOOD GOOD", is what my husband said mid way through our meal. We walked the whole length of Denman and chose this restaurant after walking back and forth 3 the window 3 times. Everyone inside looked so happy. And so were we. Warm atmosphere, super friendly, and the food - outstanding. Fried corn with soy butter, tan tan noodles, vegetarian miso soup with fried tofu and special sushi (crunchy shrimp heads included). The Sapporo served so cold there was a little ice on top. Just perfect. The energy in the place is like eating with a big happy family. Sit at the end of the sushi bar. Best seat in the house. Frozen grapes and a flower come with your check

I could come here every day!
The ambience is warm and inviting. You walk in the door and are greeted with a chorus of "irashimase!" (welcome) by the whole staff. The food is as delicious as is the artistic presentation. If you want to sample a bit of everything, go for the bento lunch which quickly sells out.
I have only been there for lunch on numerous occasions. Love the hand-written menus. You really get your money's worth.
The staff heartily thank you upon leaving as well.
