Across from the Law Courts is Guu Garden Izakaya on 808 Nelson Street. It is part of the Guu family of restaurants. Up the stairs you will find a cozy but spacious izakaya with wooden floors, garden patio and large bar space. The atmosphere is more relaxed and quieter than the other Guu locations filled with loud greetings and tight spaces. Guu Garden menu offers tapas izakaya type dishes such as kobacha croquette, sashimi tuna stacks, grilled calamari and oden.
