Their food is amazing! You'd think it would be a knockoff because of the low price they charge but you'll be surprised. Unlike other Chinese restaurants they load up the plate with noodles or rice, Double One gives a right ratio of rice and met/vegetables. In some cases we even got more meat/veggies than the rice itself. Their dishes are reasonably priced and they have a wide variety to choose from. We've be coming here for years and we were never disappointed. Highly recommended!

I was shocked when I read the reviews on this place. I've only been here 3 times, and twice for AYCE. the sheet does have two rows of what to order I'm not sure if they give you a second sheet or not. I ordered a lot of rolls a small amount every role. 2 cones and lots of nigiri. they honestly brought everything I ordered. and the quality of the nigiri was pretty decent, my friend got a drink and refills ended up being free. the only miscue was she asked if I wanted another soup and my friend said no, but she brought another miso each, (which he finished and I finished half)

she asked if we wanted more but we ended up ordering a lot more than we figured and were both stuffed.
and we paid 13.99 each.

I've been to all you can eats that if you order a lot of rolls and nigiri they "forget" the nigiri or the fish on the nigiri looks old or isnt that good.

Of course I prefer a sushi place in maple ridge to this, but as far as AYCE this is one of the best ones I've been to.

there was a fairly big wait to get in but if you put your name in they will tell you how long and you are able to go out for a smoke or a quick walk.

What we ordered:

Chicken and prawn tempura udon

Deep fried octopus croquette

Wild Salmon sashimi

BBQ beef tongue

BBQ cod neck

Eel and prawn tempura roll

Big bottle of Sapporo

The bill came up to $50.45 including tax.

Ya it was all pretty good. Service was definitely up there. Fast, friendly and attentive. No complaints at all.

It's all Japanese staffed. I'm pretty sure anyway. I'm Asian myself and i've been to enough chinese and korean owned places to have a good idea. Plus they said so..hahaha

It was a Saturday and we got there around 6 and there was no one and 45 minutes later there were people waiting for a seat.

It's a nice place with nice people and good food. I'll be going back and my cousin said he would too. He's a harsh critic too. The guy will hardly go anywhere except his handful of usuals.

We went for the chef's signature tasting menu and it was delicious. The food was excellent and so was the service. It has a very cozy and intimate little dining room and also a large selection of non-alcoholic beverages as well as alcoholic beverages which I appreciated. This is not a cheap restaurant, but worth the price! There is also plenty of free parking around this area which is a bonus.

We live in the area and go here often. I agree with the post below - this is not the typical cheap eats pho noodle place, it's a nicer interior and a bit more expensive. Portions are a bit smaller. We tried the chicken wings (garlic butter, $6) which were very tasty. I had the beef stew noodles ($8) and they were delicious. My favourite dish on the menu.

I'd rather pay a bit more and get a nicer place to eat with tasty food and good service.

This little gem serves ramen, fried rice, gyoza and Korean dishes such as Ba Bim Bop, Kimchee, etc. because I think the owner/operators are Korean. Service is always with a smile and the prices are fair.
I go here often because I know the food is good and consistant; no surprises.

I liked this place. Food was good, prices reasonable and service quick and polite. I was alone but seated immediately. Tea was fast and hot sauce there as soon as I asked for it. You order off a sheet but I now prefer that to trying to wave down the cart to get cooling off food and I know what I'm getting and about when I'm getting it as opposed to hoping what's on the cart. Servings were hot, tastly and all a good size. I found them efficient to where I was in and out on my fairly quick schedule not theirs. There are more high end places around, perhaps with better food and amenities but also repleat with higher prices. This was good all around and I will return.

Rude waitress
By kayelsea of Burnaby (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, October 17, 2012 - 5:04pm [Take-out]

I got takeout buffet, the waitress was very rude through the whole process so I didn't tip her. She saw that I didn't tip and left my food behind the counter where I couldn't reach. She stomped away and flung the door hard without saying goodbye. There were no other employees in sight to help me grab my food that was out of reach so I had to reach far behind their counter to grab it.
The food was decent, but it tasted like it has been sitting out for a while.

I saw this place while filling up gas at Chevron as it is situated right behind the gas station. We decided to get some lunch there yesterday, and were a bit surprised to find a nearly empty restaurant at 12:30 on a Monday just steps from busy Kingsway. We ordered two lunch specials, a seafood noodle soup and a rice bowl. The cook probably neglected to rinse the boiled noodles, making the broth very starchy and kind of unpleasant. The rice bowl was bland. It's too bad, because the restaurant itself looks quite nice. The wooden booths were spacious and comfortable.
They did not honour what they advertised: 10% off was written on their lunch specials menu as well as on a sign outside. When we asked after receiving the bill, they said it's already discounted. Well, it did not make a lot of difference in the end because we would have left a bigger tip to make up for the 10% anyway. But they should have honoured their promise.

This is a restaurant know what their cooking. Food is mouthwatering. And the price, I don't how that keep it so low in this market.

Service sure needs some work. Need some work with décor, surely confusing.

And one more thing, why do they call it James Street...I don't know. But coming back for food.

I have not been to Me n Ed for a long time, and decided to go in for lunch with an Entertainment Book coupon. We ordered a medium California pizza. I really enjoyed the thin crust, but the toppings were rather bland. It was also a pricy pizza - $22 for a medium. I would go back and try their other items only if I have a coupon.

Not coming back ... ever
By HERC of Vancouver (2 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, October 5, 2012 - 1:55pm [Dine in]

Where should I start.
Lets say that only ambiance gets a passing mark.
Service I don't care about, especially when I'm hungry, the only thing on my mind is good food.
I don't mind paying good money either, so that tells you that I'm not too picky, but food has to be good, after all that's what I'm paying for.
Now I can't say that I tried everything in the restaurant, but I did try 3-4 different things and let me tell you, the food was ****.
I know there are millions of hungry people in the world and I'll try not to use bad words in the same sentence with food, but I'm sure you can make out what those * (stars) mean.
Sure, that boiled chicken, plate fool of onions and green peppers just to fill the plate may be good in a third world country feeding you for $1 a day, but everything other then that is way too much.
This is in no way putting down Thai food, but a bad copy of Thai food.
If you want to eat good food, go to a restaurants where the owner, cook and staff are serving their authentic cuisine, and not trying to copy others for a quick profit.
Anyways, I'm not going back.

Vegan Menu!
By me3vanc of Cloverdale (17 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, October 5, 2012 - 8:06am [Dine in]

We went here for a family dinner. Small place in a suburban mall. My daughter is vegan and so she asked what on the menu was vegan as some of the menu items say "pork" or "fish". She was told EVERYTHING! We had such fun! We each ordered a dish and shared. There were 8 of us and the dishes did not all come at once. Everything was good although the fish balls were a little weird. The cheesecake and ice cream were incredible!! Two of the guys are big meat eaters but they found eating vegan here was acceptable. After years of going to restaurants and finding the only thing my vegan daughter could order was salad and fries, this was fantastic!!! Maybe they could use another waitress, but overall best vegan restaurant ever!!!

Cotto Enoteca Pizzeria6011 Hastings Street, Burnaby
Yet another corporate American-style restaurant
By Burnbaby of Metrotown, Burnaby (4 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, October 4, 2012 - 8:10pm [Dine in]

I can't believe I read a review posted here that said that it was great to finally have a wood-fired pizza place in North Burnaby ... I guess he or she had never bothered visiting Domenico's! We had heard so much hype about this newly opened place, and were therefore really looking forward to it. We'd heard it was 'authentic', which the Proscuitto pizza we had definitely wasn't: Too thick, not charred, not crisp, and the combination of flavours simply didn't work. The sauce was unhappily too sweet, and the topping of arugula was sparse - I will give it that there was plenty of flavourful proscuitto ... The salad we shared, the Insalata Rucola, was tasty and generous, but again, the Balsamic drizzle was overly sweet, and the flavours didn't seem to blend well. Really, the best part of our meal was the marvelous, crisp, toasty and tender slices of focaccia with a heavily oiled, garlicky mashed chick pea spread - our hopes were raised, only to be dashed when our actual pizza and salad arrived. The service was attentive, but flawed (we had to ask several times to get some minor additional items, and waited a good 10 minutes after asking before receiving our bill). A huge complaint is the standard corporate decor (think Cactus Club), the repetitive heavy-beat music, and the female hostesses dressed all in black with plunging necklines. Are we such a provincial little town that we still buy this? Some originality would be nice.

Good food, lousy service
By love2dineout of Port Coquilam (10 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, October 4, 2012 - 8:07am [Dine in]

Had a meal here recently and for me it was a case of extremes. This is not gourmet new age thin crust authentic from your momma's small town in Italy pizza. It traditional old school pizza and I thought it was good. However, the Pepperoni was more like Salami, and the other toppings were cut up so fine it was hard to tell what I was eating.

The service from apparently the woman owner was prettty lousy. My pop was empty when the pie was brought, but no refill was offered. Ate the whole pie still without a refill being offered. No checking to see how everything was. Had to ask for my bill. When my friend arrived as I was finishing to meet me they were not offered anything (they were not going to stay but it would have been nice to have offered). Seemed more content on sipping on her drink and watching TV than looking after anyone.

Thought the price for a small pie, about $7 or $7.50 was great, it filled me up.

The place was dark, furniture was rickety, bathroom not stocked. The scent of indifference hung in the air for me.

I'd order take out for sure, but would not eat in again.

Okoman Japanese Restaurant3355 North Road, #100, Burnaby
Used to love this place...
By ConcernedTurtle of Coquitlam (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, September 30, 2012 - 7:45pm [Dine in]

When Okoman first opened I was like the majority of reviewers here, I loved it. It was my new favorite sushi restaurant in the area.

But as the time went by the quality really dwindled. The food doesn't taste as good anymore, the newly hired servers are incompetent. (You need to ask them 3 times for refills for your tea until they will listen).

Knowing this I decided to give Okoman one last chance, so i went with my friend hoping it wouldn't embarass me as much as I knew it could. Unfortunately for me, what i had assumed would happen, did in fact happen. It was worst than before. My friend ordered a Beef udon (not worth the price for the quality) In which she waited 20 minutes for. I waited, and waited while watching numerous take out orders being completed, and the people around us receiving their food. But after another 20 minutes, my food has still not come (It wasn't a very demanding order either, it was 2 tuna rolls and 2 salmon rolls) I inquired about the food, in which the waitress said "We have too many sushi orders today" in which i wish i replied (If you paid any attention to the people in your resturant, instead of the takeout orders, this wouldn't be a problem). After another frustrating 10 minutes, my friend had finished her food. I was outraged and cancelled my order, Won't be going back....

TLDR: I used to recommend this restaurant to my friends, and it makes me sad that the quality of service and food here have gone down the drain. If you like quality sushi and service, Please don't come here!!!!

- Noodles like plastics
- Dumplings like rubber
- Sugar, Sugar, Sugar, everything is way too sweet
