    Perfect DOV night here. Everything was amazing from food to service. Honestly one of the best omakase experiences I’ve had. I will definitely come back to try the rest of the menu but as well reorder the DOV menu. My fave of the night was a hard pick but I love duck so I’ll say the duck tataki! Chefs kiss. Thank you so much for such a great night Kitchen Dada Team! See you soon.

    I had the Dine Out Vancouver omakase 6 course dinner. The food was delicious. The waitress explained each dish and so prepared you for your tasting. The price was good value. The service is excellent. The place is small but cozy. This has become one of my favorite neighborhood Point Grey restaurants.

    Went for the Dine Out Omakaze. 1. Chawamunsi and the Salmon Beet Salad was really good.. never had stir fry Beet but it was so good not oily. Wish the Salmon was bigger pieces and more. 2. Preferred the Duck Breast Tataki which has more flavor compare to the Hamachi Tataki. 3. Madai Ochazuke is very interesting. Madai (fish) inside formed rice ball in soup. 4. The Nigiri/Oishi - small 4 pieces only..i think there should be 8 pieces given the size they served. 5. Ice Cream Tempura.. what can i say.. think they dropped the ball here totally. They don't even serve the whole ice cream.. 😒 it's just a HALF SMALL SCOOP ice cream.. which is pretty SAD..it was good for 3 bites only They started out good but kinda disappointed at the end.. not worth $55.. more likely $40 worth only

    The DineOut menu of 6 delectable courses delighted us - every course tasted delicious. Tge presentation is so pretty, not to be outdone by the fabulous taste. The $6. red and White House wine is better than we have tried for 3 or 4 times tge price. I love wine with my meal, so am please with the affordability. I will come for happy hour & taste their wine again soon, along with wonderful Japanese food. We needed to check the menu to see what we had for our dinner because most dishes are totally new, with delicate flavours. We loved our experience and will be sure to return to Kitchen Dada.

    As usual the service and ambiance was great. However, this time, some of the Maki rolls were not prepared up to their usual standard. In particular, OMG rolls had seaweed almost like a paste! very unpleasant! Also, Mango Kelly Rolls did not hold together. I am sure this was an oversight non their part and will not be repeated. Strip and Yam tempura were great!

    Had a nice dinner at Kitchen Dada with my wife and daughter. The sushi and sashimi were very fresh. There was a good assortment of other entrees besides the sushi. The service was friendly and our dishes came quickly to the table. I would definitely dine here again.

    The Volcano roll was exceptionally delicious. The Mango roll a close second. Highly recommend this place and especially the $10 dinner take outs, different every night. That’s right, what might be a tip at another Japanese sushi restaurant is a delicious 3 course takeout meal at this restaurant.

    We felt it was worth the flight from Seattle for this fabulous dinner. Not overstated, not understated just the right amount of ambience. The food was very very good. Just shy of excellent. The service could be a much tighter, but it was sufficient. Will definitely go back for another try.

    Service was atypically slow. On some of my maki sushi they put a sesame (I think) sauce on it, and the sauce overpowers the sushi. I keep on forgetting to ask them to leave it on the side. We ordered the dragon roll, and the presentation was impressive.

    I have dined here regularly for the past few years. The food is always consistently high-quality - wonderfully fresh ingredients and very flavourful. Plus, there are so many delicious options to choose from. Also, the service is always superb - efficient, polite, and friendly. It has been a great addition to this neighbourhood.
