                              Delicious tasting menu, great service, 9.5/10 because the seating and general ambience is a bit sparse/low end for the food they are serving.

                              it’s been years since i’ve had dinner here and while everything has changed quite a bit, we loved everything! the omakase tasting menu was well executed and worth the price. it won’t be too long before we come back.

                              Food was excellent. Salads divine. One wish - vegetarian option for main entree. Make a vegetarian option for the asparagus dish. Very tasty though.

                              Food was great, server was great and vibe was great too. The seating was tight at the long table which both my friend and I felt constraint. We are 6ft and 6ft + tall guys. The only reason I marked down on the value was because we were debating between omakase special $65/pp and a la carte and realized it’s actually cheaper when we order a la carte and get to choose what we want. End up around $59/pp + tax and tip (5 appy 2 main & shared among 3 of us) and it was filling. Conclusion: its worth going again, this time I might put our height on the special note for special seating accommodation 😂.

                              The food was disappointing to be honest. Many dishes were over salted and the duck had no flavour. The tiramisu was also very dry. It has potential but overall not good value for the money and wouldn’t recommend.

                              I have a seafood allergy so always choose menu items carefully. I ordered broccolini and asparagus and it was covered in sauce and sprinkled with what looked like shaved fish (no mention of this on the menu). I asked the waiter if it contained seafood and he said it did contain a lot of fish, in the sauce. However, he made no offer to change my order. And they should have asked if there were any allergies if they intend to put fish on a vegetable dish. The chicken wings were excellent, but the cornbread was heavy and greasy.

                              Simple ingredients, well executed & great seasonnings on the vegetables & rice! Loved the twist with the brussel sprouts & Broccoli! The rice was also very tasty & i was very happy with my mocktail with yuzu (floral, a bit acidic & not too sweet)!

                              Absolutely splendid meal. We arrived early and were immediately accommodated. Chose the tasting menu, and some cocktails to start..very well executed and understated. Every course was well balanced and complimentary. All of the mains sounded very good, but we went with the brisket and we’re not disappointed. Still thinking about it a day later. Finally, the basque cheesecake was the perfect compliment to finish. I can’t recall enjoying cheesecake as much as that. Thank you for the knockout of a meal! We will be recommending this establishment whole heartedly from now on.

                              Great variety of dishes for the tasting menu, and reasonably priced, as well. We tried a couple of their “World-Class” cocktails: balanced, nice flavour depth.

                              This was our first time visiting Torafuku and it was the perfect spot for a date night to celebrate a special occasion! The service was great (very friendly and helpful), the food was delicious and the cocktails were so unique and tasty. They had enough options for me (a vegetarian) as well. We look forward to going back and would definitely recommend a lunch or dinner here!

                              I took my friend here for her birthday and she loved it! The cocktails were so unique and delicious. The food was so good and all the ingredients were super fresh. We stayed for quite a while and the serving staff were super attentive. It was a little pricy but we did the 7 course tasting menu and several cocktails so it was well worth it.

                              This is a fusion gem in Vancouver! We took our family over for dinner and everyone loved everything. In particular the brussell sprouts and the Mochis! The Magic Mushrooms were great but last time they were even better (the evening’s highlight)! Anyway! Delicious!!!

                              We tried the 7 course tasting menu. It featured two salads (both featuring kale but both excellent), scallop crudo, braised oxtail pastry, pork belly with a Korean pancake, and tiramisu. We both liked each dish in the tasting menu. Standouts though were the squash and kale salad as well as the pork belly and pancake and the tiramisu.The cocktail menu was also amazing. All of our drinks were delicious and worth the price. Our bill was a fair price since it was $65/person for the tasting menu but we left satisfied and happy. Would definitely come back.

                              Thankful I booked a reservation, I didn’t expect the place to fill so quickly for lunch hour. I absolutely love the food and cocktail menu here. This was my first visit over lunch hour, and it’s definitely a good value, albeit a limited menu. My only complaint was the service. Staff were kind, but I had to flag them over for every thing we needed…to be seated, to order drinks, again to order food, and for the bill. Service for dinner here in the past has been excellent, so it may have been an off day for the team. I definitely recommend their omakase menu for dinner, it’s a Vancouver must-try

                              I love this food! I had the pork belly rice bowl with all kinds of roasted veggies and shaved cabbage and a silky beautiful egg. I can't remember the name of it exactly, but it was so tasty. I also had Jasmine tea and tried a Mocktail with ginger and cucumber (can't remember what else) and it was so good too. What a treat!

                              Dine out portions for a tasting menu was larger than expected. Good balance of flavours for Asian fusion restaurant with subtle, yet distinct flavours. Restaurant noise was noticeably quieter than most, despite being fully booked (i.e. no echoes). A good sign when the food and service level exceeds expectation. Definitely would recommend.

                              Had the dine out menu, some dishes were good, but the ling cod was too dry. The streak was a bit overcooked as well. The appetizers end up tasting better than the main. Service wise, it was mediocre:. Most of us at the table still have 3/4 drink left in my glasses and 20 mins later the server came around to ask if we wanted to order more drinks? Another server walked by and just took away my friend's drink without asking, even though she is not yet done. There was no toilet paper in one of the washroom and informed one of the server, who doesn't seem to know where to get it replenished? Perhaps, they are all new staff, but most likely will not be returning any time soon.

                              I did Dineout here in the past, and remember it being VERY good. But this second time, the food seemed a little regular. Both appetizers had a lot of kale, and not much else. The sirloin was quite rare, but okay. Overall, the food seemed to not be as good as I remember.
