Gyoza Bar offers conventional Japanese comfort food with a fresh, innovative twist. Inspired by the diversity of Vancouver, Gyoza Bar’s menu integrates international flavours with traditional recipes. From classic dishes like the juicy Pork Teppan Gyoza and hearty Tamari-Shoyu Tonkotsu Pork Ramen, to more creative items such as the mouthwatering Korean Spiced Pork Rib Bao Board and crispy Roasted Beet Gyoza + Market Salad, Gyoza Bar is the perfect spot for both quick lunches and casual, unwinding dinners.

It was just ok. The gyoza really are the stars there. I wouldn't recommend anything else I had (the bao board was a pass. If you're looking for bao go to bao down) but the service was nice, and the prices were cheap. 60 dollars will get you lots of food and drinks for 2-3 people.

Overall, I wasn't impressed with the food since it was relatively pricey. The ramens were quite bland. It lacked flavor and toppings. Chicken taco gyoza(deep fried) was a nice treat. Loved the dips for it, but could use more fillings. Maple soy chicken with 2 mini bao buns were decent. But definitely not worth $18 as the portion was quite small. It was like an appetizer. Nonetheless the chicken itself had flavor to it. I also hear the chicken karage wings are delicious!
I will not be coming back however :) But I hope others have a better experience than I did. If you want ramen, I suggest to check out some place else. If you want try some fancy gyozas, this is the place! Just expect to pay a little more for the dining experience.

I had the soft shell crab which was deep fried and I found it a bit greasy. Those who had ramen said it was good. I also had another appetizer that was a bit heavy/greasy too. Not bad food but not great. The server was really nice though and they were accommodating to a large group so that was nice.

Overall decent 3.5, service was a bit slow and cocktails were a lot more to be desired, almost less than basic in flavours and presentations. Food had reasonable variety slightly over par for tapas/apps, The Ramen broth was delicious, aside from the noodles which did not taste or seem fresh.

The place itself was great, excellent service and fun vibe. We had veggie gyozas to start which were excellent however the veggie ramen for main course was inedible. So greasy and tasteless. Maybe just a bad batch as I came to this place highly recommended by others but left disappointed

I had high expectations for the ramen but was unfortunately, disappointed. Coming from the SF Bay Area, the ramen in Vancouver was not nearly comparable. The gyoza was amazing though! Just not sure if I can get full off of potstickers. This place is good for small snacks.

What can I say.
Absolutely excellent in every way, this is by far one of the best Japanese cuisine restaurants I have been too.
The food was exceptionally good and the spice level tailored to individual taste.
Really beautiful flavours and not at all heavy, just really vibrant and delicious flavours.
The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, and cannot do enough for you.
I would recommend this restaurant for any time of day or any occasion.
Superb.

Our first visit to Gyoza Bar was very well received by all 3 of us. Every item we ordered was delicious and enjoyed very much. Our server was helpful, polite and positive in his interaction with us. This is a place we'd all like to visit again and can recommend among all of the choices in downtown Vancouver.

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.
