The new menu is not quite as shareable as the previous one (loss of sushi and the great vegetarian dumplings) but Torafuku is still a great spot for couples and groups.

I love the fried chicken and the poutine i order but to be honest the main course doesnt attract me as much. I may go for another veggie and try dessert.

Had the Chai cocktail it was light and refreshing. Duck confit poutine is a fantastic twist on the classic. Order Finding Dory - the cream sauce is amazing.

Tasty, but very expensive as portions are tiny - is nouvelle cuisine back in style? We left hungry after sharing 6 dishes amongst 4 people.
Cocktails were excellent.

Went there with the GF on a Saturday night. Service was perfect...our server gave great cocktail and food suggestions. All plates are meant to be shared. Food was creative and interesting. Cocktails were amazing. Had the Green Lamborghini cocktail and it was one of the best cocktails I had ever had. I would highly recommend Torafuku.

Very good at their flavour profile: rich/umami, sticky/sweet. But all dishes ordered hit that same note - lacking in finesse, acid balance.

My husband and I were there for a dinner. We tired the tasting menu. The presentation of each dish was beautiful. I could tell the restaurant uses good materials, but all the dish were overly salted so that I could not taste the goodness of fresh ingredients. The wings and the cocktails were outstanding though. I think the price of the tasting menu is overpriced for what it is.

In Vancouver from Toronto for the weekend and we wanted to try a new place. We were definitely not disappointed. The chicken wings were one of the best chicken dishes we’ve ever had. I’m not normally a fan of duck but the duck was absolutely amazing. We sat at the bar and the girl making drinks was extremely friendly, as was our server. Would recommend 10/10 times.

We had a great experience. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Cocktails were excellent. Tasting menu was really good - gave us a range of interesting flavor that wasn't entirely dependent upon red meat. Left not overfull but extremely satisfied with our choice. Would go again although reaches the upper limit of the meal budget.

Delicious and fresh Asian fusion cuisine. Some of our favorites include the roasted Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and broccoli with roasted chick peas Nd balsamic glaze (so good we had two orders!). The duck was tender and flavorful. And the golden beet salad was amazing,. The dishes are meant to be shared. The cocktails were interesting and delicious. We’ll come back for sure!

We were wowed by the creative dishes on offer at Torafuku. We chose the Uni Corn
and Poutine??? , and finished sharing a Magic Stick.
This pan-Asian restaurant really hits the spot.

The menu was so appealing that another visit to try other courses is on the cards.
I could not get enough of the Uni- Corn featuring garlic buttered prawns. My dining
partner's Poutine??? was a real winner. Duck Ragout was the chief component of this dish but the unlikely appearance of
Tempura Polenta stole the show.
Desserts under the heading "Happy Ending" were limited to two but they hit the
bulls-eye again with a delicious rendition of Chocolate Granache named Magic Stick.

Friendly service and value for money prices only served to enhance our experience on the night.

LOVE the Rabbit Food, the buttermilk dressing and crunchy bits are such a good combo. The spot prawn pasta dish was also very tasty. Cocktails were perfection, first time I've had the Emerosa (pink one) with the jasmine tea and strawberries. Service was perfect, our server was helpful with food and drink suggestions.

My husband and I went on a Friday night at 5:30pm. The early seating was great because it was empty upon arrival but completely full by the time we left. Overall, this was a great restaurant if you haven't been before and happen to be in the area. We tried the tasting menu, really enjoyed General Tao’s Fried Chicken Wings, Everyday I’m Brusselin’, Magic Mushroom and the steak pieces in The Donald. Cocktails were delicious and the dessert was okay. The only other part that really stood out was a pretty good old school song list.

I was a huge fan of Torafuku when it first opened. The menu and service were both great. The menu has changed quite a bit and the food wasn’t nearly as impressive. The server didn’t seem very engaged; she didn’t explain anything with the menu until asked and didn’t seem very friendly. She also brought the payment machine before we had our cards out/were ready to go. As a server, this is a big no no! I wish the food was more exciting as well. Overall, mediocre experience.
