Guu Original on Thurlow is where the Izakaya boom all started. The Thurlow location is not only the first Guu to open but, it was the very first Izakaya in Vancouver. Established in 1993 as “Raku” (then changing to “Guu” in 2000), this Guu location offers the most authentic izakaya experience, offering classic dishes like Yaki Udon & Oden.

Guu with Garlic is all about “Garlic is Sexy”. Also known as “Guu Robson”, this location was the second Guu to open. Being sexy is not just about feeling sexy on the outside.

Enjoy classic Izakaya dishes with a garlic infusion in each sexy dish.

Guu with Otokomae in Gastown brings a contemporary twist to the regular Izakaya menu. “Otokomae” means “being an ambassador for men (representing their best features)” or “true masculinity”, both physically and mentally. Each of our dishes carefully crafted to an almost “art-like” perfection, making them both visually pleasing and delicious. Otokomae is perfect for groups, or even a sophisticated dinner for two at the counter.

We offer customized party menus for larger groups as well. Guu Garden – a beautiful oasis in the middle of Downtown Vancouver.

Kobachi is the perfect location, if what you’re looking for is a cozy place you can chat, drink & snack while you enjoy your time with friends & family. If you sit at the counter, why not chat with the chef? If you feel like eating something that’s not on the menu, try asking for it & see what happens!
