Kobe Japanese Steak House1042 Alberni Street, Vancouver
Over 90 minutes without table & food
Submitted Sunday, February 24, 2013 - 2:40am [Dine in]

- made an online reservation around 3:30pm
- got reservation confirmation around 4:30pm for 7pm
- arrived at 7pm was told a few minutes...okay
- was called and brought the the lounge area
- after a few 10 mins or so, we asked when is our table, was told all party has to arrive first...(all parties arrived, just 4 of us), was told she will look into it
- after 20 mins passed, we asked again, was told the next one available...
- friend got really mad and talked to manager
- manager said another 20 mins
- after 20 mins, manager came back saying the table ordered ice cream, so asap...
- imo, if the customers ordered like sake after ice cream we will have to wait even more?
- at 8pm we finally got seated, table consist of 12 chairs, somehow they need to wait for the other parties (we don't even know) to place order???
- didn't actually got to eat until 8:30pm...
- at one point friend found out another party was here at 6:30pm and still didn't get seated at 7:30pm
- the fact that if restaurant reply back saying they are at full capacity, i would feel way better rather than standing around for an hour before getting seated...at one point a waitress had an accident and pour drinks all over the lounge floor...my brand new shoes got splashed already in just a few hours of wearing them =.=
- at the bill, they charged us a drink we didn't order, had to get it canceled out...
- menu stated all dinners include: Teppan Shrimp Appetizer (3pcs), Shabu Shabu Soup, Garden Fresh Vegetables, Rice, and Japanese Green Tea...had to ask for the tea...=.=
- don't think we will go back ever again, the experience back in 2007 was good thou

Boathouse Restaurant, The2770 Esplanade Ave, Port Moody
Worst pre-Christmas dinner experience for a 30-year experienced restaurant!
Submitted Monday, December 24, 2012 - 1:35am [Dine in]

First of all, we didn't see the $30 Holiday Group menu until we asked the server, she asked me if I booked early and if I was "offered" the special. Well, when I saw this promotion, I booked via OpenTable on Oct 3, well before the expiry date of end of Oct. Then she has to inquire it with the manager, that part was fine.

Service was below par, server was particular too lazy to walk around the table to place the utensils or plates of food, everything were handed over across from me and I had to "receive" the items myself and I wonder where is the service coming from with that 15% gratuity? The tips wasn't even worth 5% in my honest opinion.

When it comes to dessert time, Créme bruleé is supposed to be creamy like pudding! But the one we have is just like a over cooked pound cake! While leaving the restaurant, we had to wait for our party to use the restroom, the sign at the reception clearly says all guests in your party will also receive a Gift Certificate for 2 Brunch Mimosas to use in the new year, and we weren't given during the check. When I asked the reception, she had to search for our reservations I made thinking I was here to lie for a coupon for 2 Brunch Mimosas? Even thou we were given these coupons in the end but a very unpleasant for the pre-Christmas dinner.

After getting home, the friend who dined with us had taken a photo of the menu, then I just noticed the coffee or tea was included; we were NOT offered or asked what we would like during the order of our food in the beginning.

Thank you for giving a very unpleasant experience!!!

Appy-Dessert Buffet $32
Submitted Tuesday, February 3, 2009 - 4:49am [Dine in]

I have always go for the Appy-Dessert Buffet for $32, nothing else. Can't go wrong for those who likes seafood as that is what they offer at the appetizer buffet (mussels, clams, dungeness crab legs, sometimes king crap legs, smoke salmon, etc). Highly recommended for any occasion! Decent price and quality of food from a hotel.

I can make their food better myself!!!
Submitted Tuesday, February 3, 2009 - 4:44am [Dine in]

All the food on the menu look like home-made stuff and not good enough for the public (thou many still order the food since price is decent), I can make most of the food better (look & taste) myself. Drinks are alright with good selection of them however SERVICE is bad. They often push you to leave the store (EVEN if is not the closing time NOR people waiting anywhere). I have friends who went they have many complaints, one of them mistaken ordered the wrong item but is willing to pack the mistaken order home and re-order. The manager come barging telling their waitresses that is not their problem and is the customer's fault. (ummm we know that already, but he still has to come stress about it).

Akari Japanese Restaurant3000 Lougheed Highway, #112, Coquitlam
Decent Quality Jap Food in Coquitlam
Submitted Tuesday, February 3, 2009 - 4:35am [Dine in]

Today went with gf to the place for a dinner. Ordered the Love Boat for Two for $30 (as the assorted sashimi plate would have cost $25 iteself), so the boat is a decent deal (that comes with 2x miso soup OR salad). Also ordered extra Nigiri (Hotate @ $1.95, Red Tuna @ $2.95, Toro @ $1.95) and price IS NOT overpriced as other member(s) claimed. [ I recently ordered the same items from a Jap restaurant from Whistler and Akari's tasted way better and price is also cheaper ]. Last the dessert was the Green Tea Cream Burlee for $4.95 (basically a regular cream burlee with a touch of ginger and matcha green tea blended together) but overall is a decent and good place within Coquitlam.

If people say this is overpriced, what is Tojo then?

JUST good overall
Submitted Tuesday, February 3, 2009 - 4:02am [Dine in]

1st time to try it out during the DOV 2009 and the black bean paste (spread) was a suprise as i couldn't imagine that would be made into a spread in a Mediterranean style restaurant. It is a decent place overall, BUT not something I would recommend (since the location is by UBC and food aren't SUPER good)

BEST DOV 2009 Restaurant
Submitted Tuesday, February 3, 2009 - 3:55am [Dine in]

BEST DOV2009 restaurant of all the ones I have went this year! It is located beside the Nova Scotia Theater and not only is listed under the $28 category, the food were absolutely delicious. First the appies were great, a good selection of [Tuna Trio, Lobster Spring Rolls, or Assorted Sashimi]. The entrees were awesome with the choice of [BBQ Rack of Ribs (8 sticks), Lobster Curry Hot Pot or Sable Cod]. The Rack of Ribs itself would have cost $25 from Montana's or Tony Roma's and the Lobster Hot Pot came with scallops, mussels and 4-pcs of lobster w/ shell attached. (I can see that 90% of the tables ordered the hot pot). However the dessert portion is quite small. Like I said, one of the best I have had this year! Highly recommended!!!

Kingsway Sushi3665 Kingsway, #110, Vancouver
One of the better Top Gun Group
Submitted Friday, January 2, 2009 - 1:18am [Dine in]

Went there for NYE dinner with a couple of friends, we had the deluxe menu ($31 after tax and tips). Overall food is good with many many varieties (lamb chop, ox tongue, geoduck, sockeye salmon, fresh oysters, sweet prawn [shrimp], bake pearl pudding, deep fried milk, etc). Definitely have to mention that their sashimi and bake oyster is absolutely very small. I would say their raw fish portion halved of what I usually get from other AYCE places.

Service is OKAY, as they seem to be asking you all the time if you guys are done for the night (maybe is their 2 hour limit OR there are still people waiting outside). However most asian restaurant would have the 2 hour limit where they would sometimes stop your order and make you wait wait wait and just leave in the end. That was the bad from yesterday.

I think I ate 50+ of raw altantic salmon plus other raw food and a couple dozen of oysters myself and over 200+ pieces along with the 4 other friends. One of the better Top Gun Group restaurants. Would recommend.

Daimasu4680 Kingsway, #106, Burnaby
Toro Sashimi (9 pcs) @ $6.95
Submitted Wednesday, December 3, 2008 - 1:58am [Dine in]

Went there with a friend because Sushi Garden was fully packed (full plus another 20 ppl waiting inside) so decided to go to Daimasu instead. Didn't like the fact that they don't accept debit card but overall it was good on the food. Their 9pcs toro sashimi was a great deal! Regular price is $12.95, now only $6.95. When comparing with other sashimi (salmon, tuna, etc) THIS IS A VERY CHEAP PRICE!. Ordered the sashimi boat for $23, the amount was OKAY, with 2 fresh oysters but portion is kind of small =)
