Lucky Noodle3377 Kingsway, #3, Vancouver
Hunan cuisine done right.
Submitted Sunday, January 6, 2013 - 2:22pm [Dine in]

My wife and I go here all the time, and sometimes do take-out. We've lived in this area for over 10 years. We used to go to this same restaurant location before it was sold and taken over by Lucky Noodle. The old restaurant was also Hunan food, and it was also good, but overall we prefer Lucky Noodle.

The food is extremely good. In terms of service they're fast and efficient and the quality of the food is always high. Sometimes you have to get their attention when you need more tea or another napkin, for example, but that's typical of many Chinese restaurants.

This area of Kingsway has always been very competitive for restaurants, and it's becoming even more so in 2013. More and more restaurants are opening up, and many of them are quite good. There are Szechuans, Hot pots, Japanese etc. but Lucky Noodle keeps drawing us back.

Check it out if you want some great hot spicy food.

Kura Japanese Restaurant4300 Kingsway, #2, Burnaby

Kura is an interesting study in how not to run a restaurant. The food is very good. My wife wanted to give this a 4, but I would have been happy with a 3 or 3.5 if that were available. We settled on the 4 because the truth is, the food here can actually be very good. The chef is way above average in skills.

Having said that, the service sucks. The girls are generally sweet in disposition, but they move slowly and are inattentive. That rattles me a lot. When I go to a restaurant, I expect good service, and that's why I pay top dollar for my dining experience. If the problem lies in not having enough staff, then they need to hire more. Anyway, whatever the reason, the service is slow.

As far as the decor, it's pretty basic. The main door into the place is pretty cool, but once you're inside, it's unimpressive and drab. You can't succeed in the restaurant business with only one good component. Serving great food means nothing if the customers don't feel like they've gotten great service.

Bottom line, there are other places sushi nearby to choose from that have food which is just as good, at around the same prices and with better service. Do the math.
