Dropped in before the Post Malone concert. Food and service were excellent as usual. Good to see quality of food and experience hasn't slipped. If anything, it's improved!

Great food, excellent service and reasonable prices. My main criticism is the general level of noise; this makes discussion around a table difficult.

This restaurant is beyond noisy. The constant yelling by the staff every time someone enters the restaurant is extremely off-putting. Would not recommend to anyone. There are much better Japanese restaurants in Vancouver!

A friend and I were there for hapa hour. The ambience and service were great, but the food not so much. The takoyaki was lukewarm and not crispy, the hamachi sashimi was very oily and fishy, and the ebi mayo was sad. The best dish was the spicy pork ishi-yaki.

I am in awe with the service. There was a delay at first as they forgot my order. They rectified it very quickly and adjusted the bill accordingly without asking anything. They also treated us with some special attention at the end and I was very impressed. The food was great! Thank you very much standing behind high integrity values.

Amazing place to visit. Everybody is so pleasant, sweet and attentive. Best service we’ve had in years. High class service with a super welcoming staff. Wonderful to have a new/authentic take on what’s typically served as Japanese food in North America. Best smoked salmon roll I’ve ever had. Went as a family. 17 year old raved about it all evening.

Always awesome when we visit Hapa. Service was amazing, everyone we chatted with wished us a happy anniversary. food was on point, made right and came out quickly. Takezake was cold and crisp. Jinny also surprised us with a dessert platter at the end, which was such a kind gesture. We love Hapa.

I used to love love love Hapa. When you had your Kitsilano location I would go at least once a week because the food was amazing. I was so sad when the kits location closed just because of how close I lived to it but above all the food was always so tasty and wonderful. I always had a amazing time at the Coal Harbour location and the food/flavours never disappointed either. I have eaten at the Yale Town location on and off since the beginning and it was always good. Until yesterday the food was horrible. The fish was fishy and gross, the salad we ordered was so boring had basically no vegetables or dressing and the dressing was bland, the tofu was much to soft and a little firmer would have tasted much better with the salad. The chicken was chewy and not enjoyable. I could go on but I am sure you get the point. Only thing that hasn't gone down hill was the edamame. The Ebi Mayo was also okay but you used to toss and completely coat in the spicy mayo sauce it tasted much better then the light drizzle you now put over the deep friend prawns. I was so let down by the food and very sad, especially because forever Hapa has been my all time favourite restaurant.

Some dishes were not as good as before. The Tuna avocado salsa was different and skimpy on the tuna. Service was good and reasonably attentive despite 2 large groups.
