Love the atmosphere :) I love Izakayas and kingyo is definitely worth trying. Lots of items on the menu that’s great for sharing. Seafood is so fresh!

The service was amazing and the atmosphere is full of energy! They have an amazing menu here and the quality of the food is top notch. It's a little off the beaten path downtown but it's a nice walk if it's not raining too much.

Kingyo is the epitome of Japanese cuisine in Vancouver, friendly greetings upon entry + delicious food. The limited lunch set is to die for! The cocktails are good too.

We ordered the bento box (limit 10) and the beef bowl! They were both amazing - the bento allowed us to sample various dishes and the quality of the steak for the beef bowl was absolutely fabulous! Come early for lunch!

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
