Great place to have a bbq with friends. The atmosphere is very inviting and lively. Everyone seems to be having a great time grilling their meats. Everything on the menu is delicious. I highly recommend making a reservation as they get packed.

Fine and fancy gyu-niku (bbq beef Japanese Style) was delicious !! Include a salad, rice, and veggies and you have a full meal. Service was excellent (lots of fine beers and wines to choose from too).

We went for lunch on a Sunday. It was happy hour (20% off set lunches). I had planned to order individual plates since one of us is vegetarian but with the 20% off it actually made sense to go with the set lunch. Meats were well marinated, staff was super friendly and helpful, prices are good. Don't forget to make... More

I was taking my girlfriend out for her birthday and we had reservations at Guu on Hornby. We had been to the other locations but thought we would try a different location. We had trouble locating the place as it ended up being up a flight of stairs that were hidden away and we were 15 minutes late. They had... More

First time visit to a Japanese operated Korean style BBQ, recommended by my Japanese daughter in law. Easily accessible in downtown Vancouver and very busy. Get there early for Happy Hour and prices are less expensive. A great dining experience - barbecue your own meats at your table, bite size pieces of a variety of meats obviously then hot and...

We walked by this restaurant on Valentine's day and found it too packed to enter. We went back the next night and still had to wait for a table. It was packed with young people - mostly Japanese! The barbecue was very good. The young waitress was friendly and helpful. This is not a quiet romantic place but a good... More

This place is fantastic. The service is fast, the food is delicious and the staff are wonderful. The prices are good, but if you can come during happy hour, it is super cheap! It's a great place to socialize and bbq your own food to your own liking. Love love love this place and highly recommend.

We were in town for Christmas so thought we would skip the traditional christmas celebrations and head here for lunch. YUM we had great service and great food. Highly recommend. We didn't do the BBQ but ordered off the menu and found the prices to be very reasonable.

Staying in Granville Street

Neighbourhood Profile
Granville Street
Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs and watering holes that it's fondly nicknamed the city's 'Entertainment District.' Friday and Saturday nights are the most popular and lively, with young revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping the party going until late. Granville Street, being mostly open to pedestrian-only traffic, has a healthy social life along its main thoroughfares, even outside of its cafes and pubs, spilling onto the sidewalks. The locals are chatty, the shops at its expansive Pacific Centre Mall are trendy, and the whole area seems to be on a sugar rush: in a good way. Exuberance and camaraderie classify this neighbourhood.
