    Haven’t been back to Hapa for quite a few years. Food and service is just as great as before. Will definitely be back.

    I really enjoyed the service here. The staff was really friendly, attentive, and genuinely cared. Our server even checked in right before "Hapa hour" ended to make sure we could get last minute orders in. Hapa hour has some awesome deals. Loved the ebi mayo prawns, beef tataki, and the spicy pork ishiyaki bowl was yummy. I think the interior could use a bit of an upgrade but I understand if they are going for the traditional izakaya style.

    Our server was outstanding. And I believe the only server on, he was making drinks and taking orders and serving everything. He needs a raise!

    Have been dining at Hapa Izakaya for 18 years and have never been disappointed by the food, the service, or the atmosphere. IMHO Hapa is the best representation of what eating out in Vancouver means ... and I still LOVE IT! Justin and his team are simply awesome :)

    Every time we visit Hapa we have an amazing time. This is the first time we’ve been to the restaurant since covid and I gotta say that they are doing a really good job following all of the safety guidelines.

    What a great SAFE time with another couple, loved the partition between us to keep up with social distance (Dr. Bonnie would be proud!). Even when the police decided to wander through, glance our way, nothing to say due to the glass partition on our table.Thank you Hapa Izakaya!! ps - the service was incredible, the food fresh and fabulous (prawns were to die for!), the wine perfectly chilled...WINWIN all around, we will be back!

    Staff are very friendly, and explained well about the menu and COVID procedures. We ordered a total of 5 items for dinner and 1 for dessert. Items included Beef Tataki, Tako Wasabi, small Sashimi Salad, Paperbag Prawns and Kinoko Ishiyaki. All tasted delicious, but the portion were very petite, except for the salad. I also ordered the Sake Sangria White wine, which was excellent balance of bitterness of wine and sweetness of dried fruit, highly recommended to order one who prefer Japanese flavor. The only setback was the dessert, first of all, there are only 3 items to choose from: Ice cream, puff pastry with red bean and almond tofu with ice cream. So, we asked the waitress to confirm that almond tofu was house made, so we ordered it. Once again, the portion was extremely small, never saw such a small scoop of ice cream and the smallest ramekin for the almond tofu. The most important part is that the ice cream tasted too sweet and the almond tofu tasted like those you can buy it at under $2 in any supermarket. I won't order dessert there in the future to avoid disappointment, as other dishes tasted good. Our bill before tips was at $98.85, not bad, but if you are hungry young people, your bill would definitely be more!

    We love Hapa... live in the area and it’s one of our go to places. Great menu with enough unusual dishes to make it standout. Staff are top notch— upbeat and remember you and what you like. Food is consistently good. The music is pegged for a younger set— but it doesn’t stop us from going there often.
