A very cozy and hidden restaurant where you have this feeling only Daiken Yama in Tokyo can offer. It is like a replica of a nice sushi bistro in that highly rated prestigious Tokyo area, and does offer you the very true essences that a well managed Japanese restaurant can provide.
The inevitable view is what fostered the atmosphere. Provided it is located a slightly elevated location, windows seat enjoys the exclusive False Creek view which is an excellent choice to dine romantically, or bring in your tourist guest.
The newly decorated eatery offers its diners a piece of serenity in each seating. The whole room is softly lighted with great interior design. Food and service is stunning. The server is pleased and ready to offer you what is today’s “Freshest" recommendation if you are the one into the seafood delicate. A must try is the grill-on-your-table dish which is presented by a small stone-made grill, torched by a tiny candle lit stove and topped by a net with your choice of meat or scallops grilling over top. An excellent choice that will guarantee to provide you a good entertainment, and nonetheless, an exquisite experience to your taste buds.

The poor service spoiled the place! The servers who are serving this joint, obviously comes to work with an attitude. I have never been so badly mistreated ever in any restaurant in Van and in my own turf - Kerrisdale.
Firstly, I was not "allowed" to pick my own table until I insisted not preferring that specific corner the server assigned me (mind you that I am no prisoners of no one.) The server, I guess was offended by my insistent gesture, provided me the slowest serving and found extremely reluctant to come to the table after she had her drink, her munchies and her flirting with the some aged customer which is at least 30 minutes after before she comes and taking my order with a tone that is so unwelcoming which makes my gf felt extremely embarrassed and uneasy. The kitchen did a decent job on the food, yet the server should be disciplined. I would never return and will let the bad words flows. Unacceptable.
