The service was exceptional. Drinks were ordered, made and delivered in record speed. The food was delicious and we had a fantastic time. The serves recommendations were fantastic. I will be back and recommend this restaurant.

Had purchased a Travelzoo voucher $36 for $65 worth of food so decided to give it a try. At first, waiter had no idea what it was. Decided to not accept it without really knowing the details. Then takes info to supervisor to ask. Was a tad bit scary as a customer because you buy a voucher with reading all fine print beforehand and then go through a “this does not apply to these dishes” moment. Afterwards, it was fine. They allowed us to use it.

Food ok. Shrimp gyoza was yummy vs pork gyoza. Bao was alright. Suggestions on how to create our Bao would gave been appreciated.

Food a bit pricey.

Nice, cozy decor. Food was nice. Service was top notch. The Gyozas could have been better. Had the Roasted Beet and Chili Shrimp. I did not care for the Beet Gyozas and the shrimp were about 3.5 out of 5. Enjoyed the pan fried Ramen Noodles. Would like to see more vegetarian options - pretty limited.

Everything we ordered was too salty...ramen, gyoza, bao.

Staff were nice and welcoming.

Unfortunately, we won't go back unless they cut down drastically on the salt.

Food was delicious and the value wasn’t too bad for happy hour. The pork gyoza, taco gyoza and miso chicken ramen were the highlights! However this service wasn’t great this time; the staff stood around chatting and messed up our order twice... they forgot our drink order and ended up giving us a free order of chicken wing karaage because they originally gave us the wrong one. Overall we still liked our experience because the staff was still very friendly.

The brunch menu was amazing, we each tried something different and we all loved what we ordered. I had the pulled pork bao sandwich and while I was eating it I thought, "wow, this is amazing. When can I come back? " So you know it's good when you're planning your next visit while you're still there.

I don’t know how Gyoza Bar is part of Aburi Restaurants brand. I love Minami and Miku, but this was one of he most disappointing meals I’ve ever had in the city. My friend and I asked for the bill 10 min into our meal and went somewhere else for dinner. The miso ramen was SO salty (and that’s coming from an admittedly salty eater). Barely edible and muddled flavors... Not good. Pork and shrimp gyozas both very mediocre, especially considering the price point. Pork was really bland too. Beef tenderloin baos... I guess the concept here was to build your own bao. Lettuce, buns, tenderloin skewers, sauce, and “kimchi” came out separately. The meat was actually quite tender, I’ll give them that, but forgettable nonetheless. Compare that to building your own fresh rolls at somewhere like Anh and Chi—Not even close. You can find better skewers elsewhere and you’re way better off buying kimchi from H-Mart. Essentially, no matter what you decide to order here, you can get better somewhere else DT. Hard pass on Gyoza Bar.

We tried their brunch and I really enjoyed the okonomiyaki and chicken karaage. We also tried all three types of gyozas and they were delicious. My friend had the bacon n egg ramen and she said it was only ok. My other friend had the pulled pork Bao Benny and she said it was really good.

We dropped in at Gyoza Bar for happy hour. Tried a variety of things on their happy hour menu and were very pleased. It was also comfortable to sit and because we went fairly early, it was quiet and it was easy to hold a conversation.

We really enjoyed the pork gyoza with its two dipping sauces. The chicken gyoza would have been so much better if it had been fried and there were no caramelized onions on top. The ceviche was a joke. Four prawns with some rice vinegar on the bottom. The beef tataki was well made. For a pre-theatre dinner it was good value for money. I wouldn't come back for dinner, but perhaps a quick snack or happy hour.

Friendly and attentive service. Quality of the food was first class and while not intimate the atmosphere was very pleasant. Food is moderately priced and the happy hour choices are quite broad. Our waitress was very attentive and polite as were the rest of the servers.

Spectacular ambience, meal, and service! We were 3 friends out for a bday dinner and first time visit to Vancouver. Gyoza Bar did not disappoint! First, we tried the roasted Brussel spouts and Edamame beans which were well executed, perfectly cooked (e.g., both were slightly crispy without being soggy) and tasty. Then, we tried the vegetable tempura which we gobbled up quickly. After, we tasted the Japanese curry poutine (loved the subtle hints of curry and combination of cheddar, fries, pork and curry gravy), crispy chicken taco gyoza lettuce wraps (great texture with the deep fried gyoza, lettuce and guac and salsa toppings) and Bao Board Korean spiced pork rib (think Asian soft taco filled with mouthwatering pork, pickled celery and apple and sriracha aioli ). Our tastebuds were awakened by all the wonderful and unique mix of flavours. For drinks, we tried the Mango Mule, Pender Collins and Blood and Beauty... and all we could say was OMG, how could this get any better! Recommend you try Gyoza Bar for a truly satisfying and exciting food experience!! Our server was very attentive and patient... she went out of her way to accommodate every request including an extra gyoza lettuce wrap and Bao bun so that we ensure equal amounts to share between 3 people. Thank you Gyoza Bar for providing such a sensational food experience and making Vancouver stand out as being a definite foodie destination!!
