    Yellowtail tuna and squid were both fantastic. Be ready for a wall of noise when you enter. Not a place for a quiet bite to eat unless you book the deck outside. Excellent food and good fun.

    The Village’s Izakaya is the original from this (originally west coast) Japanese-style pub chain, and its dining experience is not like British pubs to say the least. [Eater 38 Member]

    Very lively with a good atmosphere, the entire staff will greet anyone that walks through door and what I mean by that is that they all yell hello Lol. Small portions so watch how much you order.

    The cheesy oysters were very delicious. The scallops and sashimi were very fresh (close to Japan quality), and the karage (fried chicken) was pretty good as well. I would highly recommend this place.

    We had the 9 courses meal, and every single dish surprised us tremendously; the first dish was phenomenal and each one after, was better than the previous one. 100 points and 100% recommended.

    Worth the wait. Yes you'll be standing in the cold for an hour or so, but they have blankets and any food you order will be on the table right away. Everything is delicious so eat your faces off.

    Oh yeah...and they have BEST karaage ever (deep fried, boneless chicken). It was even good as take-out! A must must must try. Topped off with a lemon wedge and mayo and well worth the calories.

    Almond tofu, sesame & coconut ice-cream are the first things to keep in mind before you order so you will have space for them!!! Grilles black cod and oysters and fried udon are the main dishes.

    Crazy lively Izakaya joint in downtown. You should probably make a reso because it's usually very busy and wait times can be up to an hour on Fridays and Saturdays.

    Am beginning to think you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Except dessert (icky deep fried ice cream seems an afterthought.) But no one cared 'cause everything else is izakaya heaven!!

    PRIDE 2012 TIP: Guu makes dinner into a wild and wacky party. It's hard enough to get into at the best of times, but once you're seated the food is great (it's not a sushi joint, it's Japanese food.) Leer más
