Recently, we discovered Gyubee, an all-you-can-eat Japanese restaurant that opened on 24 June 2023 on rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest. It’s an ideal place to spend an evening with friends without breaking the bank.

Gyubee is a Canadian restaurant chain that has enjoyed great success, particularly in Toronto, in recent years. Now open in Montreal, it’s already a popular spot for lovers of Japanese barbecue.

Gyubee is a fun, unpretentious restaurant. The concept is simple: you choose your meat, fish and seafood, as well as your vegetables and side dishes. Then the team (and even a robot!) bring you the ingredients so that you can cook them yourself on a grill at your table. The restaurant offers a wide selection of meats and fish, including pork belly, beef, salmon, prawns, squid and much more. In short, the variety is impressive. If you’re a meat lover, you’re in for a treat! We particularly liked the miso-marinated pork belly. As for the side dishes, there’s a choice of courgettes, mushrooms, onions, garlic, cold tofu, kimchi and so on. There’s something for everyone, not forgetting the various dipping sauces. There are also a number of cocktails, including a lychee mojito, as well as beer and sake. For dessert, you can enjoy a vanilla crème brûlée or ice cream with the flavour of the day – if, after this feast, you still have room for dessert, of course.

We recommend Gyubee because it’s welcoming, generous, delicious, and, above all, very affordable.

Enjoy your discovery!
