AYCE Sukiyaki done very well.
By ChivalryX of Burnaby (60 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, October 28, 2011 - 3:34pm [Dine in]

My wife picked up a "groupon" coupon for Posh online. We had been to the Richmond location a couple times in the past and enjoyed the experience. This time we decided to try closer to home since they've opened a new location on Kingsway in Burnaby.

We made reservations for an earlier time, 6pm. When we arrived the parking lot was relatively empty, so finding a space wasn't a problem. When we left, however, it was packed, and their parking lot isn't huge. So be forewarned.

We were happily greeted by the hostess and brought to our seats. She asked if we had been there before, and explained how the ordering and menu worked. We produced the coupon, and she happily took it and let us know we had 2 complimentary drinks from the menu as well.

The restaurant is quite modern, and spotlessly clean. We were surprised at the large size and spaciousness compared with the Richmond location. Here you aren't crammed next to other patrons with a wood partition like Richmond.

We checked off items on the order sheet that we wanted, and picked out 2 drinks.

Servers were constantly around, so getting in the order was as easy as putting the paper in the air, and it quickly would be taken to the kitchen. The requested items arrived very quickly and were presented neatly. Everything requested arrived (unlike some other ayce places that automatically reduce orders making you re-order extras later).

Everything was very fresh, prepared well. Service was quick and attentive, with the hostess checking in on customers, and the servers whisking by constantly. Water was refilled in seconds, not minutes.

The ventilation system was also surprisingly efficient. You could barely hear it humming, but it kept the smell of food off our clothes so we didn't reek of sukiyaki when we left.

Price wise, with the coupon an excellent deal. $35 for 2 ayce meals, plus 2 non-alcoholic drinks, taxes and tips. Without the coupon it would have been around $20 more.

Overall very happy with the experience and we'll definitely return, even without the online coupons!

The outside of the restaurant seems kind of nondescipt but inside is very upscale with an open kitchen. Question, is it still a reataurant when all they do is slice meat and cut vegetables and the customers do all the cooking? Fantastic variety of veggies some I tried for the first time ever. After finishing I certainly felt like I had a healthy meal. Lots of wait staff and everyone was attentive. Wasn't happy about paying $1.50 for tea but the charge was explained to me beforehand so I guess I didn't have to order it. Restroom was as upscale as the restaurant. Overall I loved the experience.

Not worth adding crab
By chanman of Coquitlam (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, January 28, 2013 - 12:25pm [Dine in]

Overall food was good, we opted to get the additional all you can eat crab which is an extra $8 per person. They served frozen crab which was only cut in half which made it very difficult to cook and eat. They also did not offer any shell crackers, so we were forced to bite through shell including claws. The crabs were still frozen when they were served to us at our table.

Service was poor. We were greeted by a server wearing a GAP hoodie who was rude throughout the night. The men's washroom did not have any soap, we asked them to refill it and near the end of the night there was still no soap until we asked again.

The meat and veggies were tasty, food came fast. The crab was mushy.

Yummy Sukiyaki!
By mmmsteak of Richmond (74 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, May 5, 2009 - 4:22pm [Dine in]

We've been going to the various locations of POSH for a few years now, and we won't be stopping any time soon.

For those that don't know what sukiyaki is, it's a similar concept to hotpot. Sukiyaki uses a shallower pan and much less broth. Posh is AYCE sukiyaki, with a menu that focuses heavily on vegetables and various tofu products. However, don't be put off if you're a meat eater. The menu does have beef and pork as well, which come in cute little stackable trays.

It takes a little bit to learn how to eat sukiyaki properly, but the food is absolutely delicious at Posh. In response to one of the reviewers below, the restaurant provides two small teapots, one which contains water and one contains sauce. If you add them in 1/1 ratio throughout the meal, your soup would not become bland. They also have great drinks. Strawberry / Peach / Mango / Pineapple / Passionfruit flavored 7-Up, refillable and only around $3. YUM!!

The ambiance at Posh is always great as well. The decor is very contemporary. It's especially a joy to walk into the place on a cold day and smell the warm food cooking.

If you have never been to Posh, this place is a MUST TRY!

Nice hotpot, but needs more service
By aregma of Burnaby (116 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, July 30, 2008 - 11:39am [Dine in]

Ate at posh a few times for lunch. Great value I think for under $10. As a previous reviewer has stated, the base cost doesn't include extras such as sauces or different soup bases. I haven't been to a hotpot location that doesn't charge extra for soup bases, but usually most sauces are free at other hotpot places. At the same time, $10 is a great value regardless in my opinion.

The restaurant is nice and comfortable. Good amount of space between diners. Food is pretty solid, has beef and pork slices, with a variety of noodles and veggies.

The main problem is the poor service. For the whole restaurant most of the time I have seen only 2 waiters, maybe 3 at most, usually one standing at the bar preparing drinks. This is simply not enough to service the entire restaurant. I wait a long time for my order to arrive, and did not get asked if i wanted any drinks. When i asked for tea i waited over 15 minutes to get any. I actually received my food before i got my pot or my tea which was about 20 minutes after I got seated and ordered. I saw the people sitting in the table across from me get up and get their own cups and pour their own tea and water.

Would go back if I'm not in a rush for its good value.

It's okay, Beats Richmond location by far
By seasons_PT of Richmond (17 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, April 28, 2012 - 11:30pm [Dine in]

For those that don't know what Posh is, it's basically a spin on Japanese sukiyaki that turns out more like a regular hot pot with a soy sauce based soup. For $20~$30, you get to choose between a variety of vegetables, carbs, and pork/beef(AAA Alberta beef if you pay extra).

My girlfriend and I came to the Burnaby location the other day with a redpocket groupon in hand which is $25 for AAA Alberta beef AYCE + bottomless drinks. When we came into the restaurant, we were promptly seated. Half of the restaurant was very packed and lit up. The other half of the restaurant however, was dark, empty, and sort of haunted looking. The side of the restaurant that was packed was run by two servers for 10~12 tables and sadly, they still did a much better job than the Vancouver or Richmond locations ever did in terms of service. Our food and drinks came quickly whenever we asked for something. The one thing that bothered me a lot though, was that the dish-washer and whatever they use to wash the dining cloths seriously needs fixing. I had to change my bowl in the beginning because there were specs of black...stuff inside. The cloth had lip-stick marks on it.

The food. Vegetables are vegetables. Their variety isn't nearly as big as it was a year ago. The black fungus stuff isn't being served anymore but the selection is still solid I guess. The AAA Alberta beef is GREAT. The cuts of the beef are slightly thicker and much more lean, allowing you to really taste the beef flavor. I don't know if it's worth however much extra they charge on the regular price menu though. In fact, I don't even know if anything on their regular menu is worth it at all, which is why I stopped coming to Posh years ago (before the groupons came out). The drinks we got were the 'Strawberry Twist' and 'Lychee Galore.' Both were good; nothing super outstanding but they were good.

All in all, if you like Posh and are having a craving, come to the Burnaby location. I've had far too many bad service experiences in Richmond to ever go back there. In my opinion, the food is good but the value is horrible and that's why I won't be coming back (without groupons =D). It's just too expensive for what they serve. Unless they drop the price back down by a bit, I expect the second half of the restaurant to remain a ghost town. Alternatively, they could throw some more groupons out there. That'll make me come back =)

Not Bad
By A Fatty of North Burnaby, BC (75 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, April 14, 2010 - 7:33pm [Dine in]

When you begin to eat your food, it tastes good. However, when you are on your 30th plate of beef or pork, it starts to taste pretty nasty. Lesson learned: not to order massive amounts of beef / pork. The vegetables were pretty good though. Good selection of food for price.

Healthy AYCE sukiyaki hotpot
By panda of Burnaby (56 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, July 18, 2008 - 12:11am [Dine in]

I finally got to tried out Posh after reading great reviews. Opportunity arose tonight, I convinced a friend to join me. We were impressed with the ambiance when we first walked in, it was quite nice and airy. Their washrooms are cleaned. I liked how their kitchen area are open and its pretty clean and organized.
Our waiter took his time explaining to us how the hotpot work. I've never been to a Japanese hotpot before, Chinese hotpot, yes.
Food was fantastic, I loved drinking their broth towards the end. Sliced beef and pork were the only meats served. The rest were different kinds of tofu and lots of variety of vegetables.
We had several staff waited on us, all were young and quite knowledgeable about their job. Great service!! You can tell all their staff have received training.
I thought for $13.88, thats great value. Where can you eat AYCE for that price nowadays esp. dinner. I've been to AYCE chinese hotpot where its almost $20, received lousy service, where broth are laced with MSG. I rather come back to Posh anytime!
Highly recommended. At least come for the experience if you have never tried hotpot before.

Always a good meal
By WeekendChef of Burnaby (45 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, February 2, 2010 - 2:31pm [Dine in]

I come here with a friend fairly often for lunch and we always have a good meal. The selection of food choices has gone down, but you know, we always leave with a full tummy. Greeted quickly at the door, we get seated and they start the hot pot up for us. A selection of tofu, assorted veggies and a few trays of beef and pork and we're off. It's comforting food and it's good food. Not too heavy, unless you're eating only meat of course, and for a diabetic, pretty easy on the sugars. They have a good selection of beverages and are very accomdating for requests, even if they do charge for tea. For lunch for 2 including drinks and a generous tip, we usually spend about $45 and that's with a very generous tip. The room is very modern and well kept and maintained. Ladies room is tidy and you can see the kitchen is very organized and clean too.

A favourite for girls' lunches for sure.

Good place for vegetarians
By pookiebear of UBC (46 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, June 24, 2009 - 8:41am [Dine in]

I came here for a b-day dinner last night. Normally, I go to the Broadway location but the b-day girl lives closer to the Burnaby one so we decided to come here. We chose Posh for her b-day dinner because the b-day girl is a vegetarian and Posh offers a wide array of vegetables and tofu. My sister is a vegetarian too and she loves this place. And it's a few bucks cheaper than a regular chinese hotpot restaurant.

Food was okay, the beef was extremely fatty and some of the pork they served us was still frozen. However, this Posh location gives you the actual amount of food you order, whereas at the Broadway location, they always give less.

Service was alright, although our waitress didn't come by our table too much more as it got busier and they were really pushing us to get the drink specials.

The restaurant is reasonably clean, maybe because it's newer. And I think the ventilation is better at this location because I didn't smell like soy sauce afterwards.

really poor service
By quelle of Vancouver, East Vancouver (2 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, June 6, 2009 - 8:07pm [Dine in]

i'd visited this location last fall and had made reservations ahead of time for a party of 12. they assured me over the phone that we'd be seated together in a room.

upon arrival the day of, i was told that the party before us had started late but they were hoping that they'd finish up soon and also, that we wouldn't be able to get a room. fine, i said, as long as we'd be seated together, which the hostess assured us we would.

when they were finally ready to seat us (well over 30mins after our reserved time), they seated us at 3 separate booths, so that those seated at the 3rd booth could not interact with the other 2 tables.

the food was decent, but a lot of our orders never arrived and no one bothered to tell us that maybe the kitchen had run out of certain items. they were also out of ingredients for many of the drinks we wanted to order.

by the end of the meal, they actually rang up our bill with a 15% gratuity as a party of over 8 people when a quarter of us weren't even seated so that we could interact with everyone else! i was quite ready to complain and refuse to pay the 15% gratuity but my friend's husband didn't want to cause a fuss and footed the bill quietly.

rest assured, i will not be visiting that location again. poor service like that is a deal breaker.

Prices changed
By nogami of Coquitlam (39 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, September 1, 2008 - 1:24pm [Dine in]

Just a heads-up that Posh has increased their AYCE prices. Lunch is now $11.88 and dinner is $15.88.

Not sure if any other prices on their menu (for side-dishes and additional ingredients) have increased.

It's still pretty good value, but not as good as it used to be. Be sure to make reservations - at busy times, you could face an hour wait.

Nothing spectacular
By ssnissan of Vancouver (21 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, August 17, 2009 - 5:00pm [Dine in]

Went to the location in Richmond the first time. It was just a little before 6pm and the hostess said they were book solid. Second time we tried they put us in the little mezzanine upstairs. A little cramped but i thought 'ok'. After our server asked us if we have been there before, he just kept pushing us to buy their drinks that are on special like his life depended on it. He wasn't very impressed when we said no thank you. I was surprised to see only beef and pork in the meat selection, but the choice of veggies were ample. Left but not very impressed at all with the service. Third time we went to the location on Kingsway in Burnaby. Same old same old. I wonder if their boss would fire them if they don't sell their drinks. Wouldn't be going back for a little while.

Restaurant looks good, but that's it
By anton of Greater Van (23 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, July 29, 2008 - 10:51pm [Dine in]

The ambience of the restaurant is great. But other than that, there's nothing good about it.

Service is subpar. The servers prefer chatting among themselves than actually serving. We had to ask 2 or 3 times to get a liddle, and same thing again for tea, and then sauce....

The food selection may seem ample, but the only meat selection is pork or beef. The rest is veggie items. So either one has to be vegetarian or beef/pork lover, otherwise, you may have a hard time trying to order a second round.

Also, the cost may be misleading. $13.99 is the base cost. If you want the special spicy soup base, it's extra 6 bucks. And they only provide you soy sauce. If you want satay sauce, it's extra dollar.

GREAT SERVICE From Beginning To End!
By ChinaMan of Vancouver (13 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, July 18, 2008 - 3:02am [Dine in]

Well, let me start off by saying that I've never been a big fan of hotpot because i've never found it to be a good value especially after all the additional fees they charge, like soup base, etc., at other chinese hotpot places.. but this place definitely brings value, with a nice ambience and GREAT SERVICE. I haven't received such great service for a restaurant within this price range in a long time, definately beats all the other All-you-can-eats in terms of service, the food is alright, wish they had more selections to choose from, but again hotpot was never really my cup of tea, so that's the only thing holding me back, but for $14/person, you really can't complain. I would also like to add that their broth is pretty good, you can adjust the level of saltiness to your liking, after dining at this restaurant, i didn't feel thirsty at all like other hotpot places, so i don't think they used any MSG. They were really prompt with delivery straight from the get-go.

The restaurant manager also took the time to walk around to give out free samples of their seasonal drinks. Overall, it was a great dining experience, the service was just AWESOME from beginning to end, my first sukiyaki ever, and i'll probably return again in the near future.

the reason why it's a "probably" is because im not a fan of hotpot, but for those who are, u'll definately find this to be an unique experience.

I have always enjoy going to posh for dinner with friends and family. Health eating and great service everytime. The only thing I notice was they recently a few months ago did a price change and its now $19.95 for there signture course. Its abit much for 2 types of meat beef/pork and nothing but veggies dont you think? Thats the same price for some hotpot places else where! The only thing different is they give us a bowl of miso soup. wow, thats worth $4 increase. btw, don't order a coke, its $5 bucks!!! not coming here again. Found a better place for the wallet, point zero in richmond, althought its just regular hotpot. its only $18+.

I know this is an all you can eat, but the selection of meat is pathetic. Pork, beef and fish paste? what the heck? Wheres the other cuts of meat? and what with the dinky cuts? These things are like frozen, and when you try to put it into the pot, it scrapes, and the meat fibers are ruined.

Also, thanks to the guy below. After eating like 30 boxes, this pot taste like shit. Honestly i would've figured that they would change your pot and replace it with a new one, instead you get the same one you burned the shit out of the leftovers you didn't want to eat. Gross. I rather spend my money elsewhere.

I have been to many traditional Chinese hot pots but never a Japanese one. Well, I have to tell you that the Japanese version is much better. The waiter was very nice and helpful. The food kept coming and was very fresh. The waiter made some wonderful suggestions and the broth was terrific. For the price, I do not think that there is anything better in the area.
