Food: High end desserts. Beautiful and delicious creations. Artists at work.
My favourite so far has been the lemon tart, raspberry soufle', chocolate croissant and triple chocolate dessert.
Service: Great service. Eventhough you have to line up occasionally the servers are fast and eager to help. Ocassionally Thomas himself comes out to take orders and make suggestions. Small place so most likely you'll have to wait for a seat or eat in the adjacent park.
Value : $5 for an artists creations( Note this is for one small pastry), i'm sold.
Ambiance: Again beautiful desserts diplayed at eye level and the smells of chocolate takes me to heaven and back.
Overall: If you love dessert and appreciate food contruction - Go see Thomas at your earliest convenience.

Food : Finger lickin good. Heavy on flavor and not spice. Good sized portions. Included condiments - sour cream, shaved coconut, tamarind chutney and hot sauce. Note : Butter chicken dish is made with coconut milk instead of milke, but just as good if not better
Service: Small location, probably 9-10 tables. Server attentive.
Value : I'm going to say it has a mediocre value. If you're fine with spending $40-60 for 2, you'll probably have a great meal.
Ambiance: Tastefully filled with African souveneirs. Dunno about the furry stuffed rhino head and displayed award certificates.
Overall: Cute Burnaby spot, a must for foodies.

Have attended this establishment about a dozen times. Consistent strong flavours. Favourite is the soup noodles, curried cumin noodles, peanut noodles and lamb soup.
You're able to peak into the kitchen and it looked clean, I also noticed that the chef was wearing a Chinese-muslim cap. There is a specific region of China that has a muslim populace with unique food preferences. So i'm guess its a unique experience of food in Vancouver
