Amazing. I would eat here every day but then again this is more special. The flavors..... it takes an artist and a scientist to mix east and west with such precision.... and also north east and south east and different parts of east. In such a coherent and interesting way. Sophisticated. Delicate. Those Brussels sprouts!!! I would give it a Michelin star if I could. Chefs like this one need to be recognized and supported by the community at large because they represent innovation balanced with tradition —-> the future of food.

We had the tasting menu and they customized it by creating a pescatarian menu. Every dish was an amazing experience in my mouth. The freshness, zing, quality, flavors and feels... blown away! We had the Lucky Dumplings, Dynomyte roll, Get in my belly roll, Everyday I am Brusselin, Druken Kraken Salad, old Man in the Sea, Magic Mushroom and Gone Fishing. Everyone was my favorite but honoarable mention to Gone Fishing! The cocktails! Oh yum again. Service was efficient and friendly. I will be back for sure!

Amazing food and great atmosphere! A little loud if you get a table that is unaware there are others dining around them. Servers forgot we were there twice and we ended up sitting for quite some time but even though that happened, I would absolutely go again. The food was to die for!

Second time dining here in the same week. Food was not as good as the first time. We ordered the same after our first experience and it was disappointing. Shame as we were so impressed the first time. Was a different head chef @
- open kitchen so we could tell.

Came here for late night on Valentine’s. We were seated with a reservation and able to get drinks/ order relatively quickly. Food was quick & service was good. Very busy evening at the restaurant. Dishes were great and portions were a good size for sharing.

Food took long, ordered the 8 course and only ended up having the 6. Wagyu Beef Tataki was way too bland and the slices were too thick. Sushi Rolls were quite good and flavourful.

Torafuku was outstanding on all fronts. Service, creativity, deliciousness, presentation, cocktails, wine, beer and sake. Cannot emphasize enough how good the food is. Everything I eat there is wonderful quite frankly. Great for sharing on a date night, and great for groups too. Torafuku converted my hubby from a non "Asian fusion" eater to having an open mind about it now because it was all so yummy. Thank you Torafuku!

We went during dine out 2020 and we were surprised about the small amount of food for its price. We had to share every dish and the portions were not enough for all of us. We all left hungry from the restaurant. The beef tartare was delicious with a hint of Asian flavour (sesame oil).

The Dine Out Menu had a good variety of offerings. All the dishes were tasty & in line with their regular menu of lively flavors, fusion & nice presentation. I loved the salad included a section of romaine with the most divine dressing! The duck was delicious! The scallops were perfectly seared and the risotto was just a bit too cooked. for my taste. The humble pie & chocolate ganache were perfection! It was our friends’ first time to the restaurant & they were very happy with the meal.

This was one of the best thought-out meals my partner and I have ever had. We had the cocktail, beer, sake, and wine pairing along with the Garden Party, the Donald Duck, the Magic Mushroom, and Magic Stick/Milk and Cookie. Everything was delicious, beautiful, and timely! We left lightly buzzed, very full, and eager to come back! The staff were super attentive and didn’t make us feel rushed at all, even though they were very busy! I’m pretty sad our first time dining here was during Dine Out but it won’t be the last!

The 7-course tasting menu is a must, and I strongly recommend the drink pairing with it, which is as much part of the experience. Done it twice already and it’s been perfect each time!

Dine Out Vancouver meal for 4. This is one of the best Dine Out experiences we have had. Great, very creative food with outstanding service in a cosy, if a bit austere, room. Will definitely be back. Fun place for a larger group.

Yummy! Would have prefer sitting at a table however as my boyfriend found the stool a bit uncomfortable. Otherwise the food was great, my favourite being the brussel sprouts dish

Our waitress was horrific, she insisted we could not choose our dessert because the kitchen might run out of the more popular choices. She then brought us the exact dessert we did not want, eventually we received the correct order.
We asked her to ask the kitchen about an ingredient in the risotto and she refused , when we saw the dish go by we absolutely could have ordered it. Luckily the food was so delicious even she could not ruin our meal.

Great food. We came here for dine out. Got to taste some amazing things but portions were really small so I was still super hungry at the end. But still great food and fun cocktail menu.

Enjoyed most of the food. Really good brusselling dish. The robata pork belly and jowl wasn't as good as hoped. Service was very good; attentive waitresses both times i went this month. Only thing i wish they could improve on are the type of seating. Not the most comfortable. Would recommend to friends.

As always, I had a great time at Torafuku and enjoyed showing the place to some out-of-towner friends. A huge (and unexpected) highlight was the mochi skewer - incredibly delicious!

Been here a few times a couple of years ago, didn't really enjoy it at the time, as it was still very new, very busy and very LOUD. The experience I've had today was very enjoyable, the food was delicious, great service and not at all hectic, so I could actually enjoy my food. Will definitely come back again soon.

Our reservation was 6.30pm. Upon arriving and before we were shown to the table, we were already warned that they had table reserved for next booking 8pm!!
We ordered the omakase 7 course and food came extremely quickly one after another. Portion was so little, we finished just before 8pm, we didn’t want to linger longer. It was extremely noisy. Food was tasty but there was no finesse in their omakase as there should be. My friend said meat marinade was overly sweet and beef shank was overly salty. The choice of plate was too small and not practical at all. Price wasn’t cheap yet they provide only 1 disposable napkin. After that dinner I was still hungry and we went to Lucky donut on Main st and enjoyed the evening way better there.

Absolutely the next restaurant to try. The food and drink are above beyond fantastic!
The 7 item tasting menu was divine, but we regretted not ordering the 10.

My tip: Go for the 10!
