Our 2nd visit! The first visit was Summerlicious, we returned because we loved the food but the air-con was not great in the heat of summer. This time, the restaurant was comfortable, service was good even they are lean on staff. The food was delicious! The only advice was you can access the restaurant via public transit or on foot. Otherwise, we suggest parking on the street. We parked at the Green P parking right behind the restaurant on a Friday night, our vehicle's logo emblem was stolen.

I had my birthday with 18 guests at Hapa. Not only was the food amazing, our server Matthew went above and beyond to make our party feel welcome. He was super attentive, and also helped set up the cake we brought. He made everyone laugh, and me and my guests had such a great time.

The food was absolutely amazing and great quality! Presentation was wonderful and loved the flaming of the Tobiko on the firecracker roll. The prawns were also the largest I've ever seen for the tempura prawns.

Same restaurant, at Hapa to celebrate my husband birthday in 2018 and again 2019 for our anniversary with Travel Zoo special voucher. Hapa restaurant is very accommodating for us as we requested for the substitute of non-meat dishes on pre-set menu and the manager, Chris and owner of the restaurant honored our request. We also bought the Travel Zoo voucher for my brother's birthday to celebrate at Hapa. We will enjoyed the experience. We recommend Hapa for any occasion.

Excellent service and cuisine and good value. How about some quiet Japanese background music instead of 1950s American pop music - and I was born in the 1940's!

Food was fantastic. Some people in our group had received three or four waves of food, however, before others received any food at all which left some people very envious/hungry!

Food was presented well very appealing. The seasonings were not quite to our taste. The sauce on the grilled chicken and beef was too sweet. Meat was done perfect, but need to work on the salt/sweet balance. Yuzu sorbet was too sweet also, did not taste any of the subtle flavour character of the juice, just sugar.

Toronto restaurants open on Christmas Eve

The Isobe family brought Hapa to Toronto back in September 2012. During their first year they fought through adversity and had to close for four months. They reopened late October 2013 with a new and improved restaurant and a strong motivated family that share the same goal. Voted “Top Five Izakayas In North America” by Bon Appétit Magazine, topping “Industry” and “Readers Choice” Georgia Straight awards for Best Japanese in 2012 and Best Izakaya in 2014, and “Best Casual Chain” by Vancouver Magazine from 2011-2014, Hapa continues to offer a winning combination of Japanese cuisine, fun, and culture, paired with local seasonal and Ocean Wise ™ ingredients.
