IPOH Asian House2128 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
Utter Disappointment
Submitted Friday, October 17, 2014 - 6:56pm [Dine in]

This is not what south east asian food taste like.
I had the Char Kway Teow which tasted just like any ordinary stir fried rice noodles which you can get any any HK cafe.
Wife had the KL Noodles which tasted equally bad.

I grew up in singapore and malaysia so i know what it should taste like.
This place is just using all the names of the south east asian favourites and doing it their way.

Limited items on their Brunch Buffet...
Submitted Sunday, April 28, 2013 - 2:43pm [Dine in]

Went for their brunch buffet. $13.50 for an adult and $8.50 for kids under 12 (i presume).

The buffet was the usual fare with limited items. Chicken wings was a bit on the dry side.
The usual breakfast items comprising of scrambled eggs, bacon, hash brown. lunch items comprised of chicken wings, rice, beans, carrots, mashed potatoes, gravy and roast beef.
one kind of salad and mixed fruits.

The only issue is that drinks are also charged like coffee and juice.
I thought this comes standard with the buffet.

Friend’s BBQ Restaurant4327 North Road, Coquitlam
Mui Garden was alot better......
Submitted Saturday, April 13, 2013 - 8:15am [Dine in]

This restaurant replaced mui garden with no changes in the decor.
We thought of giving this place a try so we ordered a few dishes. The place seems to have alot of patrons and my guess was they were all there to give this place a try.

We ordered the BBQ pork as it seems to be their speciality. Turned out to be a big disappointment. The pork was tough and chewy like something that you will get at the T&T "price reduced" section before closing time.

Waiters seems to be in a constant state of confusion. They need to recheck on what a customer has ordered.

Overall the food was sub standard.

We loved Mui Garden but this place....we will give it a miss.

Note: - The best BBQ meat around burnaby / vancouver area is still at the Chong Lee supermarket at Rupert.

They need to improve on their customer service
Submitted Friday, October 5, 2012 - 8:20pm [Take-out]

They got my order wrong twice to date and it's always in their favour.
They seriously need someone to check the orders before handing it to the customers. The owner's wife is the only pleasant one to deal with. The rest of them are just so robotic.

The food is good but the service needs improving.

Disappointing Lunch Buffet
Submitted Wednesday, November 16, 2011 - 4:56pm [Dine in]

Went for lunch today as me and the wife was in the vicinity and from what i heard from my wife, she tried their buffet ages ago with her friends and it was yummy. it was also starting to snow and we thought a nice spicy dish would go with the mood.
Well maybe it was yummy ages ago but not so today.

13+ dollars and most of their items are some sort of vegetable dish prepared with different color curry sauce.

Butter chicken was so so. The dish which says beef curry was in fact beef ball curry.The beef ball was cut into pieces to resemble beef chunks i suppose.
Naan which was brought to your table in a basket was bland and tasteless. Tandoori chicken
was just humdrum.

The only ok selection was the chicken curry. Where is the lamb curry? None of the dishes were even remotely spicy. Ok..i realize that they have to cater to different taste buds but seriously, can't they have at lest one "hot" dish. Just have to label it on the tray and whoever wish for some "hot" dish can give it a try.

Tried it once and that is enough i guess.

Large potions of takeouts with 10% off the total price
Submitted Friday, July 1, 2011 - 7:00pm [Take-out]

Just discovered this place by chance while on the way to McDonalds for breakfast. Saw that they serve breakfast so me and the mrs decided to give it a try. Cheap breakfast costing around $4:50 for eggs, ham or saugage and hashbrowns and toast with free flow of coffee.
A couple of patrons were there and the server seems to greet them by name.

A few days later, we decided to order takeout for dinner and was impressed by the portion size. They offer a 10% discount for takeouts. We ordered the food, paid and was waiting in the car and the server came out and handed our orders.

Overall, if you are looking for reasonably priced chinese food which you can eat for 2 days (with the potion size), this is it.

Good service, good food and amazing view
Submitted Wednesday, December 9, 2009 - 8:39pm [Dine in]

Went there for lunch with 2 others as we were working nearby.
We were seated promptly and the waitress came and asked for our orders.
My friend asked if we could have 6 oyster motomaki. Although the menu said one per customer per order, the waitress accepted the order with a "sure, we can do that".
She also suggested some items on the menu. There was no holding back.I was impressed as other places do not want you to order so much.

We went to the washroom and when we came back to the table, most of our order was there.Really fast service.

The view of the water is a nice change from other restaurant.

Not authentic asian food
Submitted Friday, September 25, 2009 - 7:29pm [Dine in]

I tried this place and did not feel it authentic enough. (Sure the ambience was great).
I had the lemon chicken with rice and 2 spring rolls and it came to $15 including tax. The lemon chicken was average and there was no vegetables included.
My friend had the Pad Thai and it came with 4 thin slices of beef with some bean sprout on rice and the whole thing was sweet. He stopped eating after 4 mouthfuls.
I have stayed in various asian countries and must say that the menu at wok box seems to have been modified for the "canadian taste" buds.
If you are looking for asian food, you are better off going to some Chinese or Vietnamese restaurant for half the price.

Fish On Rice4361 Kingsway, #201, Burnaby
Food ok, poor service
Submitted Tuesday, November 11, 2008 - 6:08pm [Dine in]

Went to fish on rice after a long time because a friend from overseas wanted to go there.
From the start, notice that the servers don't do much talking but that didn't bother me as we were there for the food.
We put in our orders and most of our food arrived except for udon which we ordered for my 3 yr old daughter.
We asked 3 different staff but nobody seem to know the status of my udon.
We ordered 6 baked oysters and we got 3. Another 3 came 30mins later which wasn't even oysters. It was baked in the oyster shell but it contained tiny shrimps, tiny scallop and salmon meat which we gathered was from leftovers.Who were they kidding.

We finally left without the udon and on the way out i noticed a large crowd waiting to be seated. Hopefully, someone in the crowd gets my Chicken Udon.

A tad bit spicy for my liking
Submitted Sunday, January 20, 2008 - 7:10pm [Dine in]

Well, this restaurant started on the 19th Jan 2008 and my friend suggested we go there for lunch on the 20th.

The place was packed when we walked in and we got a seat for 5 after about 5min wait.

They only serve vegetarian so we had a choice of a buffet or ala carte.
The buffet did not excite me so i choose ala carte. Each item on the menu was around $6.50 ~ $7.50.

I had the rava masala dhosa and it came to the table after 10mins.
The potato filings did not fill the dhosa completely. It was only filled in the middle portion with the outer part empty. Would have been nice if it was folded in such a way that it fills up completely.
Felt the side dishes for dipping the dhosa a bit too spicy.

I had the special milk tea and others had the madras filter coffee.
Both these was found to be a bit too sweet.
They should have provided sugar at the table to suit to individual taste.

My friend who was a total vegetarian, says the rava dhosa did not taste as good as other places.

I'm not a strict vegetarian so i will probably visit this place when invited by friends.

In all fairness, this is their 2nd day, so they may improve based on customer feedback.

I would like to hear what other customers feel about this place in a month's time.
