I'm never disappointed when I go to Kinka Izakaya (or formerly Guu Izakaya). Atmosphere is lively and you're greeted by all the staff when you enter and also on your way out. I love how the restaurant incorporates zashiki style seating (or shoes-off area) for an authentic experience with wooden floors. Just like the original Toronto location of Kinka Izakaya, the food is beautifully presented and scrumptious. The specials are constantly changing and it adds something unique with each visit. It's definitely a fun experience to share and try several Japanese tapas with good company.
