Guu Tramasa will keep the concept of “For your daily re-charging spot” of all Guu Izakaya and introduce Osaka street food to Vancouver locals.

Osaka is the second largest city in Japan after Tokyo. During the Edo period (1603-1867), Osaka was known as the “kitchen of the nation” and the center of commerce in Japan, where rice and other specialty products were traded. With this background, Osaka’s unique culinary culture has developed, and the region is still crowded with tourists from Japan and abroad, who enjoy both traditional dishes and inexpensive street food.

The two staff members who manage Tramasa are originally from Osaka, which led to the creation of Guu Toramasa based on the theme of Osaka’s food culture.

    Always have a great time at Guu Tora Masa! It is so easy to make a reservation online. It was just my wife and myself on this visit, but the good thing about this Guu location is they can take larger parties. We have had a group of 9 before. We often order off the "fresh" menu that changes daily. Park on Richards, it was less than $2.50 for two hours.

    I love everything about this restaurant - from the lovely people that work there to the delicious food. We ordered 4 dishes for 2 people (plenty) and even had to take some of it home with us. Close to the Orpheum, this will be our go-to restaurant whenever we see a show.

    Food is good, overall it's a good experience but service is really, really slow. Not the waitress, but I think the kitchen needs help. They took forever for a sashi tei and really that one does not really needs a lot of cooking. But food was really great!

    Always enjoy going to GUU. Feel like other GUU locations have dropped off a bit. But this place hit the spot like it use to at the other locations. Everything tasted fresh and delicious. Will be my go to GUU location from now on.

    I loved their fresh seafood menu. Their sashimi dishes are very reasonably priced, and the variety they carry is excellent! Our server was nice and polite. We waited for our main order, a sashimi dish including uni and ikura (I am quite biased to any restaurant offering uni and ikura on their menu), only to find out that she forgot to put in the order. Fortunately, tthe gentleman who seemed to be a floor manager quickly took care of the situation, and we were able to be at the theatre on time. This location used to be a Japanese restaurant before Guu Toramasa took over, and somehow, I felt like the decor and atmosphere didn't change much. It doesn't have the unique characters compared to other Guu locations such as Garlic and Otokomae. Overall, I was very satisfied with their food and drinks, price, and how central it's located. I will visit again as long as they have uni and ikura.

    Meeting up with a dear friend we hadn't seen in years was an absolute delight, and there was so much catching up to do. We made reservations right at 5:00 pm, just as Guu Toramasa reopened for dinner. The staff there were incredibly hospitable, and attentive, ensuring we never once felt rushed or overstayed our welcome. We had a couple of pitchers of Sapporo, along with a refreshing melon soda and had the following dishes: Karaage chicken Tuna and salmon tataki kimchi fried rice Long green beans with black sesame sauce Seaweed French fries Simmered enoki mushroom on tofu King oyster mushroom tempura Osaka horumon yaki Needless to say, the experience was memorable and Guu Toramasa has now become our new go-to spot for Japanese izakaya.
