We used a Groupon to check out this little restaurant, set in a sea of other restaurants on Davie Street. I really hope they succeed, but I am worried because we were the only clients in the hour that we spent there. The menu is...More

We went to this restaurant with another couple and we ordered appetizers to share. The garlic edamame was deep fried and salty, the eggplant with miso sauce was tasty, the chicken karrage was standard but the last appetizer, scallops were over-cooked. We like the Gyu...More

A couple of years ago I raved about this wonderful neighborhood gem in the West End. But I cannot do so anymore. They closed for a couple months to "work on their nenu" but when they reopened, it was no longer the Japanese menu we...More

Lovely restaurant conveniently located on Davie near Bute. The atmosphere was pleasant, it's clean and most service staff are nice Korean people! However the food is really Japanese and we enjoyed delicious rolls, tempura and spicy tuna tataki. Nice selection of Sake, and overall a...More

Don't ever get these guys delivered to you. They're so tight on soy sauce that your dinner is ruined. I was a long time customer here and spent over $60 on sushi every time I had it delivered, to have only been given 3 packets...More

Davie Village
Davie Village is the vital LGBTQ heart of Vancouver.
It is the only like area in the world to have a
permanent four-way rainbow crosswalk, to symbolise the
city's solidarity with many of the businesses, ranging
from bars to bookstores, that keep the area vibrant.
By day, it is a people-watching stop, with fantastic
boutique cafes, but at night is when it really shines,
humming with neon lights and nightclub music inside

Bistro Hatzu is located in the West End, a vibrant neighbourhood in downtown Vancouver. At Hatzu, we provide Japanese-inspired cuisine covering a range of authentic to fusion dishes. In Japanese, the word hatsu means “first,” and we chose it for our name to symbolize the importance we place on first impressions. The moment you first walk into our friendly setting, your first sight of our beautifully crafted dishes, the first flavour to captivate your mouth; with all these firsts, we hope to create an inviting and memorable dining experience for you.
