Xiang Cuisine, The4850 Imperial Street, Burnaby
Waiting for a better Hunan Resturant
Submitted Monday, November 19, 2007 - 12:31am [Dine in]

Xiang Cuisine is in one of the dodgier parts of Burnaby, but the wife and I are willing to put up with the environment for the food. We have been to Hunan restaurants in China, and are my wife's favorite food after Guangdong food so we were really looking forward. The environment of the place is quite plain. When we ordered they brought out mushy rice (pretty bad for a Chinese place). The duck hotpot was mainly neck pieces and was quite fatty. The two other dishes were just ok. As for the prices, they were a bit on the high side for what we were expecting. As a dining experience I would give it a 3 out of 10. The next time we will take our chances elsewhere.

Uncle Fatih's Pizza1685 Broadway East, Vancouver
Interesting Crust
Submitted Wednesday, August 30, 2006 - 11:47pm [Dine in]

I had the take out and found it to be an interesting bread like crust. Nice and tasty without being greasy. The selection of toppings is beyond the average. All in all a good pie, and miles ahead of the cardboard-like dollar a slice places.

No. 1 Beef Noodle House4741 Willingdon Avenue, Burnaby
A change of pace...
Submitted Wednesday, August 30, 2006 - 11:36pm [Dine in]

from the Cantonese style of noodles. I have made two visits to the place and have found it a good place for tasty bowl of noodles. I had the Hot and Sour noodles, and eventhough it is not the dish one should get in the hot summer, it was good, with nice thick noodles. On another trip had the spicy beef noodles with appys (pig's ear, insteine, and marinated cukes). In summary the food was good, but a shade oily. The service was not as attentive as it could have been but not bad. Nice design inside, a mix of noodle house and bubble tea parlour. They could improve if the seat were more comfortable.

Mui Garden Restaurant4265 Main St., Vancouver
The wife said ho sik....
Submitted Wednesday, May 3, 2006 - 11:44pm [Dine in]

...and I did too. The food at MG was fairly good (a solid 3.5). For those who have not been there the Main St. location can best be described as an upscale noodle house, so there was nothing special in this regards. The food is quite good though and a bit different from the usual cantonese style of food (less salty, a little sweeter). The satay chicken skewers were tasty, the price was a bit steep at $7.50 for 6. It was served on an hot iron hotplate, but I would have perfered more skewers with less presentation. Next we had the eggplant & chilli hotpot, which went well with rice. But the best part of the meal was the the curry beef brisket, smooth and coconuty. The meat was good, but the sauce was amazing. This resturant is now on the repeat list.

Saffron Indian Cuisine4300 Kingsway, #5, Burnaby
A good Indian resturant
Submitted Sunday, April 16, 2006 - 1:33am [Dine in]

An above average resturant of any genre. The service was quite patient, efficient, and responsive without being overly intrusive. The dishes that we ordered came quickly and spiced the way that we asked. The resturant itself is a nice space, very tastefully designed, and a change from the usual indian resturant. If you were on a date though, the resturant is a bit open, so it is not the most intimate. Now for the food. I highly recommend the Rogan Josh. If I was at home I would have licked the plate, but being the gent that I am, I let my naan do the work. The other two dishes were also good. For the Indian food virgins, Saffron is a good introduction.

East No 1 Seafood Restaurant2800 E 1st Avenue, Suite 302, Vancouver
Nothing remarkable
Submitted Sunday, April 16, 2006 - 12:57am [Dine in]

I went here with the wife on a Saturday morning (park in the basement and go to T&T afterwards). All I can say is un-remarkable. It is not great, it is not bad, just in the window. The food was not bland nor bad, but not really tasty. Nothing bad happened, nothing great happened. I would go back because it is convenient, but not for a special occasion. If you do go, get a seat by the window in the west part of the resturant since it has a good view of downtown.

Nooru Mahal4354 Fraser Street, Vancouver
A good smallish restaurant
Submitted Sunday, March 26, 2006 - 1:40pm [Dine in]

Noor Mahal (not too sure of the spelling), is a good little resturant, that has been in operation for about 20 years, serving South Indian (Madras I beleive) and Sri Lankian (sp?) food. I have only been there the once, but will go back in the future. The resturant is an intimate size, that could be improved a bit if they improved the ventilation in the WC. It was not overpowering, but I did get a whif of what I thought was uninal cake. Don't let this put you off, the food was great (I would give a 3.5 on the system). We had the meat samosa and the chicken roll for appitizers (both my friend and I enjoyed). The exterior was deep fried, but the dough was soft and the inside tasty. They were a bit different than the average Indian type of samosa, that are more pastry-like. Next we had Chicken Madras, Goat Curry, Lamb with spinich, and egg plant and potatos. The egg plant and potatos was good. It was partially stewed, but the veggies maintained their own flavor. The 3 meat curries were also well done. Portions could have been a little bigger, but not too much of a complaint. For desert I had the Mango shake, and it was sweet and seemed to be made with real fruit. Service was good, information was given for our questions. All in all a good experience and will return in the future.
