First of all, EatsFats, I'm assuming that you started this restaurant's new tab... Are you crazy? Corner 23's location is not part of East Van.

The food there was okay, I don't think that I ordered the right stuff though (or else it might have been better) You should try out the house special fried noodles and the oyster pancake, both were really good. The waiters there were super friendly and the decoration was really clean and crisp. HOWEVER, you will not be able to have a proper conversation going on at your table due to those obnoxiously loud blenders they use to make the drinks!

Oh, and if you're REALLY picky about parking, you will have to walk a little bit (like a block or 2) to get to the restaurant, since parking behind the place is limited.

I'll definitely give this place a try again.

I had just had a haircut nearby and I wanted a snack, so I dropped by this place. When I went inside, there were only 2 other tables occupied.... I promptly proceeded to order the pan fried udon and it took the woman cooking THIRTY FIVE MINUTES TO FINISH COOKING IT. THIRTY FIVE! 35mins! This would have been fine, if it tasted amazing. HOWEVER, it was completely average and my maid at home could have whipped up the exact same thing in under 15. How this place stays open will always fascinate me. Perhaps the McGee and Point Grey kids have no taste in food?

Really, it's not as bad as everyone here puts it

I used to go to the same joint on Main street (which is now closed) for their dan dan thick noodles. All I can say is, there is something addictive about the food at this place. The staples I get here are: The spicy cucumber, the dried marinated tofu, the deep fried tofu, the beef noodles and usually one other dish. I never drink the tea here (I bring my own water) and my orders are rarely ever wrong. I never have problems with the waiters/waitresses, even with my sub-par/non existent mandarin skills. Really, the other reviews have made it sound like the waiters will trip over and spill tea all over you, which is definitely not the case. The main goal here is just to serve as many customers as possible at peak hours (can't EXACTLY blame them since this is what the whole institution is about)

Conclusion: This place really does have awesome food (yes, it has considerable amounts of MSG and garlic) at really dirt cheap prices. HOWEVER, if you are expecting extremely plush seats and tip top attentive service, this isn't the right place. If you come here for the food, you will not be disappointed.

Extremely surprised
Submitted Saturday, September 1, 2007 - 4:05am [Dine in]

First things first, this restaurant can be a bit tricky to find as it is on the top floor of a plaza and cannot be seen from ground level. (It is directly opposite from Milestones and London Drugs) I was extremely surprised that nobody had bothered to post a review about this restaurant yet! (well, even without mass publicity this restaurant has managed to stay open since 2000 A.D.)

I decided to visit this place for lunch with my family on a Thursday and the place wasn't too busy around 12:30. I wasn't expecting much from the get go due to the few customers inside and the clean but not too fancy ambiance. We ordered the lunch special (spicy chicken and standard beef) along with the ginseng chicken soup and the bibimbap (heated stone bowl filled with rice and other goodies)

Spicy Chicken - This stuff was okay, slightly above average but not spectacular.
Beef - It was really standard here, I wasn't really impressed because I known I could have gotten a better cut
Ginseng chicken soup - Wow, this soup was tasty without any apparent spikes of MSG! In your serving bowl, they actually give you a whole chicken stuffed with sticky rice which was naturally flavoured by the chicken and the broth
Bibimbap - This stuff was awesome! I don't know why it tasted so good; the bibimbap seemed pretty standard but the execution was definitely excellent: a "must have" on their menu.

For a one man (or woman I should say) kitchen, the dishes came out at a good speed without unnecessarily long waits. The husband (waiter) who serves is extremely soft spoken but bent to please. (hint: If you don't like kimchi, he'll bring you another side dish)

The food here isn't cheap, but it really puts out relatively good tasting and authentic Korean food. It doesn't leave that oily-I-want-to-puke feeling you can get after eating at cheap Korean restaurants with badly prepared food. If you're ever around Richmond Centre or Chapters on No. 3, definitely drop by for a try.
