Then, the interior barely looked like a restaurant. It is tiny, seating no more than 20 people with 4 wooden table and wooden bar stools. Quaint doesn't began to describe it.

They also have sweet mochi with ice cream for dessert.

Overall Experience: 3.5/5
Personally, I love this restaurant, but I can also see many people not liking it for the same reason I like it. People not not like it, because it deviate so far away from the norm of which we expect most Western restaurants. This place doesn't really offer the 3 course routine (appetizer, main course, then desert). we are more used to; Yakitori is eaten with hands and most dishes are tapas or for share. It doesn't carry many mainstream Japanese dishes that Vancouverites are familiar with. You may hate being turn away at the door without a reservation or having to wait even if you have one. However, you might enjoy this truly authentic Japanese experience.
I definitely recommend everyone to try it at least once. Zakkushi is worth checking out for its food and the unique set up.
