Guu'd news - reservations + lunch

Went to Guu Izakaya last night. To my happy surprise, they take some reservations now - I believe it's Sundays through Thursdays, from 5-10, as well as the 5:00 seating on Fridays and Saturdays. On their menu, they also noted that starting March 4th, they'll be serving lunch. Two excellent pieces of news. Food was delicious as always, including a daily special of lobster tempura with matcha salt, and the room - customers and wait staff alike - was friendly and fun. Always a great night out.

    1. I am so excited they're starting to serve lunch! Any idea if the menu will be the same as the dinner menu?

          1. re: kwass

            I'm guessing szw is referring to the recent glut of new izakaya restos, some of which take reservations.

            As to your other question kwass, just did a quick check of Guu's twitter and I think the lunch menu is different - or maybe the main menu is the same but they have lunch specials?

                Maybe I'm getting old (lol), but i could not read the menu on their twitter page.

          2. I happened to be there yesterday as well. Food is lovely but their bbq sauce is terrible. Instead of offering an "asian inspired" sauce, it tasted like generic crap from a bottle. The duck breast offering was completely ruined by it.

            1. Sigh, and I was hoping there would be Katsu Curry for lunch, I don't understand why they would not put that on the menu, it's a staple at their Vancouver spot.
