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.

My 5 yo kid loves gyozas and ramen so the variety of gyozas is excellent and the taste of ramen was also great.

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.
A very pleasant evening and definitely a place I would recommend!

Took my mom here for happy hour! Everything was delicious! Really liked the ramen, the pork teppan gyoza and the taco gyoza! My mom would’ve liked the ramen soup to be hotter but everything else was good. We will return in the future!

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!!

This was our second visit to Gyoza Bar. It was just as good as the first time. Great, friendly service every time and delicious food!
We love going there. The only thing I would do differently is to offer one more bread wrap with the bao board. The meat to bread is off, but could be fixed with one more bao bun!

Eat here, you will be so pleased.

Had a reservation but Gyoza Bar still made us wait about 15-20 minutes to get to the table. Seemed like they overbooked because there was about 2-3 groups in line with reservations ahead of us as well

Was looking forward to giving this place a go and hoping to be impressed. Unfortunately, we were disappointed and a majority of it had to do with a lot of waiting and lack of attention from our waitress. We waited 15 minutes to be seated even though we booked a reservation. Our neighbouring table got seated after us and their order was taken and drinks served before us. The gyozas were pretty good but didn't stand out from any others we've had, the bao was good but the pork ones came out as a rack of ribs we needed to take the meet off...with chopsticks. Super messy, but really good flavour. Overall we were left wanting more.

Gyozas were great! Nice and crispy outside with juicy fillings. The sauce spicy sauce was also delicious.

The bao was not bad, we had the scallop version. The scallops were cooked nicely and still sizzled a bit when arriving at our table.

We enjoyed the ramen the least out of all our food. It was mediocre soup, noodles, and chasiu. The seasoned egg was not bad.

Will come here again for gyozas and other tapas. Maybe even try their aburi sake next time
