This restaurant never disappoints. The food quality and service is amazing.
Japanese food to another level! Love it! 2 thumbs up!
The food was amazing and service was exceptional. Not only that but the environment was very nice. Flavours were beautiful and had an amazing time for our anniversary. Thank you Yuwa
Fabulous meal at a very reasonable price. Great range of non-sushi, non-sashimi Japanese dishes. The stuffed shitake tempura mushrooms were amazing.
Chefs have always been a cut above here. Good place to take someone who has perhaps not experienced high end Japanese food
Wonderful experience every time. Delicious food, creative menu and great service.
Yuwa has some of the best sushi ever! Their fish is extremely fresh and they cook it to perfection! Their rolls are to die for! 11/10 would recommend!
Everything was very fresh, well presented and reasonably priced. We will be back soon.
First time we went it was five stars across the board. This time there was a flickering light over our table which made my wife wonder if she’s was having a migraine. I presume this was a one time problem that will be fixed next time we go!
Friendly service and high quality food - great dinner!
Incredible! Sable fish the best ever. Recommend the Cave de Lugby Sparking Rose from Borgougne
We friendly service and not overpowering. Felt very comfortable. Food is excellent. Fish is very fresh. Price is reasonable for the quality for the food. Will definitely go again.
A local treasure we hadn't yet discovered - we will be making this a regular special night out with friends and family. Service and food quality/presentation was outstanding.
Best Japanese restaurant in town. Everything is exceptional including the service. No need for loud music as the food sings loud and true.
very spicy experience i give 10/10
Great Japanese food in a great setting. A go to place in the neighbourhood!
Best Japanese restaurant in Vancouver !
Usual excellent service and food quality.
Pricing is fine dinning and fair value.
This is the most wonderful Japanese restaurant . We had a fabulous dinner and a Sake tasting that was
so informative and delicious. Our favourite family destination.
OK, a Special Occasion in the sense that every day should be treated like a special occasion. :-)
On a rainy Wednesday night, Yuwa was an oasis from the cold and dark - a warm, light, beautifully designed room with the best Japanese food that we’ve had in a long time. The service was that perfect balance of warm, intelligent and helpful, but not intrusive. We put our choices in Miho’s hands and had a most excellent meal. From the tuna & avocado, to the deep-fried blossoms, to the very addicting ebi-shinjo bits - we enjoyed everything that was placed in front of us.
I use to be a regular here when it was 'Zest'. I just went back after 4 years to 'Yuwa', would recommend this
to anyone looking for a classy Japanese restaurant for a special occasion, date or family gathering. I would not recommend for large parties with children. Every dish was beautifully presented with care. I will definitely be going back in the very near future.
Great Food & Great Service . A Japanese restaurant not to be missed !!!!!
Great place! Awesome foods!
Service was great as usual with Kayoko! Love the food, lose the chefs, love the people. Always a great time whenever I have a craving for sushi and sake!
A chic menu, expertly prepared and delivered. The food was delicate and absolutely delicious!
good food with excellent service, plan to dine out again this coming week!!
Food was superb, but before that came, the experience was special. Reserved a table for 6, arrived on time, and was seated on time. Wait staff were extremely helpful in discussing aspects of the menu items. All menu items were delivered in sequential, timely fashion. Superb fare. Wine complimented our choices perfectly...highly recommended by all 6 of us.
The food was excellent, I definitely would return to try more dishes. Service was well-timed and friendly.
Never disappointed when we come here. Food is fresh and delicious- they offer a good variety of traditional and innovative dishes. The restaurant is simple, clean, and inviting. staffs are friendly, and the sushi chefs at the bar are engaging.
Outstanding every time!
Great place with wonderful food. Such a nice change from standard Japanese fare offered at most places throughout this city. Decent prices for great quality. Only issues; It took a while for someone to notice us when we entered, and a few staff just walked past without acknowledging us. As well, we had a reservation, and the table set aside for us was squeezed in the corner near the staff service area and kitchen entrance. A bit of a surprise. But, we asked to sit elsewhere and were quickly accommodated at the counter. Will happily return! Thank you!
Sophisticated authentic Japanese food, discrete service, very good choice of beverages, quiet background music, perfect for an early evening business meeting. Now and always in the past and hopefully always into the future. Both the simple and also the creative Japanese dishes. i’m always very happy to come back.
We ate at Yuwa on Wednesday evening, invited by our guests from out of town. We all enjoyed it so much that we returned on Saturday. We tried some new dishes and ordered some we liked from our previous visit. We appreciated the excellent quality food and the gracious servers.
The menu has plenty of variety, and the server was helpful in answering questions. I also found they were accommodating of allergies and dietary preferences. This is the best Japanese restaurant I've been to in Vancouver. I will return many times.
Absolute delight every time I walk into this Japanese restaurant. Every dish sings. Would highly recommend anyone to try chef/season’s special - one of a kind.
A nice quiet restaurant far away from the hustle of downtown Vancouver. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The service is excellent.
