Hapa was good when my close friend was head chef. I haven't been since he left, so I really have no idea how it is now.

One thing I hate about izakaya type restaurants is the loud atmosphere. I prefer a quiet place to have my lunch/dinner.

Hapa Robson has been going downhill for a while now.

Just brought a good friend to Kingyo tonight. 9/10. Only dishes that weren't prepared well were the soft shell crab (thick batter) and the duck (slightly overdone). The mackererl and black cod were excellent. Still the best Izakaya I think in town.

Dot Desserts 7.5/10
wanted to hate this place at first but the food was alright

Ambience was pretty horrible though, place was dark and chairs/tables were wobbly, I almost fell off! I think the guy overheard me telling GF that it felt really eerie when we were the only people in there, and there wasn't any music. And he turned on a pair of computer speakers, at least it lightened the mood a little haha

Ordered a mandarin + peach crepe which was pretty good, price is reasonable compared to a lot of places $4.50 isn't bad. GF ordered the berry parfait again pretty yummy stuff, parfait was a little bit pricy but still not bad compared to your typical western chain restaurant.
Next time will try some of their drinks.

It's a shame this place doesn't feel more welcoming, heck I knew it was on that block but didn't know exactly where until today, they don't even have a sign!

Ditto.
Service is good, food is even better.
I'm a cheap bastard though, I pre-ate last time before I went.
Partially so the alcohol wouldn't hit as hard, and partially cause it's not cheap.

Guu isn't the best Izakaya out there but you make it seem like its shit, which it's not. It's just a casual place to have some drinks and eat some decent appy's.

I take it that Alphamale is moreso upset over the unnecessary hype of Guu of which several members on this particular forum have portayed in their posts.

After hearing a myriad of responses, I visited the Gastown location also.
Same stuff different day.

Err...that's possibly due to the fact that it is an Izakaya.... You don't expect large portions at a tapas place do you?

I never thought Guu's portions were tiny. I always thought the portions were a bit big for Izakaya. Maybe they've changed.

I don't think they're that small either. When I go with my wife we usually order around 5-6 plates. We don't go there with intentions of stuffing ourselves, just a decent meal.

Shiro 9.5/10

The quality matched Sushi Hachi and they also offer cooked food which was nice. Their amaebi was VERY good, even deep fry the head too!

-0.5 because my stomach didnt feel very well 2 hours later. Could be the starbucks after though. Definitely better than Kimura on Rupert.
