Japanese food - family style ?

Wondering if there are any restos that serve traditional Japanese fare as one might find in the average Japanese household ? My only time in Japan was as a young child so I have no first-hand experience in eating traditional family fare, so this may come across as a bit of an academic question.

  1. If you're looking for yoshoku style: Yoshoku-ya on Denman, Hi-Genki in Burnaby, Van-ya near Joyce and Kingsway

    2. Like what el_lobo_solo says....

      Yoshoku-ya on Denman.. the hamburger steak and their curry is delicious (salad is also great b/c of their house made dressing)

      Hi-Genki... Curry is so good here. They also have tempura icecream =)

      1. To add to those...

        Ten Hachi also has a bunch of cooked homestyle items.
