It always seems busy in here and it's no surprise. Good portion size, quick service, very reasonably priced, lots of choice and, most importantly in my view, fabulous bowls of rice. Simple formula, very well executed.

We had a wonderful meal here. Waiters were very helpful and attentive. My husband had the grilled chicken hot stone rice bowl and enjoyed the flavors. I had bibimbap and liked the combination of veggies.

I love the place as it is like a modern street restaurant in Japan or in Korea. The bibimbap was a little bit bland, but I believed that this is the authentic taste for Koreans. For us it's bland but for them it is just alright. Well, that is wha try Korean friend told me. I would still recommend this... More

This is Japanese fast food focusing on Rice Bowl dishes. Service was fast, but food was ordinary, much like the fast food served in food court, Taste was also ordinary, unlike Vancouver where there is a lot of Japanese eateries serving authentic Japanese dishes. Not worth the trip.

First time visiting here today. I'm only in Vancouver for a month but had spotted this place pretty early on my trip whilst driving past. Today was a day off and I gave in to temptation. I was greeted by a very friendly waitress who took my order after serving a prior customer. I wanted the grilled chicken but was,... More

Last week I had a terrible stomach flu. After the Canada / Mexico game I went to the "Guyudon restaurant" on Robson street and the following conversation took place. Me: Hi. One bowl of rice please. Lady: No. You can't just have rice. Me: Why is that? Lady: You can't just order rice, you have to order something else to... More

I thought this restaurant was great! We had the Ramen Soup and it was delicious! It had pork, noodles, a couple of slices of fish cakes, veggies and a wonderful miso base. The young woman serving us was very friendly and attentive. The soup was hot, so was the green tea, so either they improved their service (from what others... More
