Shuraku833 Granville Street, Vancouver
Lively Gem on Granville
Submitted Sunday, May 16, 2010 - 11:12pm [Dine in]

Food: had an assortment of food and it ranged from good to fantastic. Snow spider crab roll, veggie croquette and wild mushroom salad were all very good but the stand out was this beef wrapped asparagus... I could eat platefuls of just that! Local tuna and wild salmon were fantastic as well - wild salmon is just much better than that farmed stuff.

Service: greeted after a short time waiting in the doorway, seated promptly, friendly reservation service, and servers were friendly. The server did knock over our beer at one point though but she quickly gave my partner a new one.

Value: a little more expensive than what I'm used to at an izakaya. Local tuna and wild sashimi was very good but ridiculously priced for what you get - 3 med sized pieces of tuna but 4 teeny tiny pieces of the wild salmon for $12! I will probably never order this here again as I can get wild salmon sashimi for a much better price at other restaurants. Rolls were expensive as well for what you get. All other dishes seemed more worth it than those two.

Ambiance: great looking restaurant with a nice cool and casual vibe. Many Japanese patrons so you know it's good. Nice place for a casual date or getting together with friends.

Overall, I would probably return again if I were in the area as the food is really quite good. Just be careful what you order as some dishes are really expensive for what you get. Bon appetite!

Talay Thai Restaurant8369 Granville Street, Vancouver
A little piece of Thailand on Granville
Submitted Sunday, May 9, 2010 - 10:56pm [Dine in]

Food: Ordered a variety of dishes and everything was very good but the standouts were the Pad Thai, fried rice and vegetables in black bean sauce. We ordered two curries and they were both fantastic - great balance of lemongrass, basil and curry, probably some of the best I've ever had.

Service: We were greeted on the way in, seated quickly and when we needed to switch tables, they were happy to oblige. The servers were attentive throughout the entire evening without being too intrusive and genuinely kind. We had brought cake and they were more than accommodating to serve it. At the end of the night, although they were closing, they didn't hurry us out. Excellent service.

Value: Small portions but the prices are also low so it's quite good for couples but also for larger groups who want to try a little bit of everything. Great food so it warrants the price.

Ambiance: Small but cozy. Not chic but homey.

This is the most authentic Thai food I've had in the Lower Mainland. I will definitely be back and recommend others to try this place as well. Bon Appetite!

How do you say "meh" in French?
Submitted Sunday, May 9, 2010 - 12:45pm [Dine in]

I read great reviews on this site for this restaurant and with Dine Out occurring, I thought it would be a great opportunity to try this place.

Food: I had the goat cheese vinaigrette salad and my partner had the warm calamari salad to start. My salad was bland and contained giant chunks of goat cheese about the size of roll of loonies, which I thought was overwhelming. The calamari salad was quite good. Coq au vin was good but my flank steak with frites was disappointing. I also didn't get very many frites on my plate, probably about 15 fries which looked quite pathetic as my plate was very empty with barely enough fries to cover it with a single layer. Crepe Suzette was disappointing but the chocolate mousse was divine. Overall, I was disappointed with the food as I expected better.

Service: It was a Tuesday night but Dine Out so it was very busy and as a result, I thought the service suffered. We were left to wait for long periods of time before ordering and in-between dishes and it was very very loud, to the point where we couldn't hear each other speaking. I sat back to back with another table as the tables were crammed together. They ran out of the alcohol of a drink I wanted to order.

Value: I guess it was ok at $28 per person.

Ambiance: Nothing much to it. Clean but nothing endearing. Nothing French about the place except for the food.

Overall, the Dine Out experience was disappointing and will not return for it here. I might try this place again with the regular menu but that will remain low on my priority list. No bon appetite from me!

Bishop's Restaurant2183 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
A great makeup Valentine's dinner
Submitted Sunday, February 21, 2010 - 11:08pm [Dine in]

Food: My dining compadre and I both had 3 courses each - tuna carpaccio was wonderful but the real star was the dungeness crab dumplings that came in an exquisite broth that I couldn't stop eating! I then had the roasted salmon while my partner had the beef strip loin. It was the best roasted salmon I've ever had but I question the rest of the plate which consisted of plain-tasting garbanzo peas, indian pakoras (I was confused by this but they call it fritters), barely edible endive salad and this oddly spiced creme fraiche that I was not at all impressed with. The striploin was delicious as well but again, the sides were a bit bland and the plate lacked color. To end the night, I had the bittersweet chocolate bar which was divine and my partner had the vanilla bean creme brulee which he thought was quite good. Extensive wine list.

Service: Everyone was very friendly and attentive but not too much so. I would say this was the best service I've had in a very long time, especially from a fine dining establishment as there tends to be some snobby attitude but thankfully, this place was devoid of the attitude. Nothing but warmth and attention here!

Value: Definitely on the more pricey side but it is also organic and locally sourced food so it makes sense it is a little more expensive.

Ambiance: Great aborginal artwork on the walls but it is also very bare - bleak white walls. The seats were terribly uncomfortable, especially when we wanted to have a complete meal. Very lovely floral arrangements all around the entire restaurant, with each table having a different bouquet. I would recommend this place for a romantic outing. Bathrooms are clean.

Overall, I would recommend this restaurant to all who wish to have a lovely dining experience with organic food and great service. Make sure to bring an extra thick wallet as it is definitely going to take a heavy hit!

Friday nite on a whim...
Submitted Sunday, January 24, 2010 - 5:49pm [Dine in]

Food: had the biscuits, winter greens, irish stew and mac and cheese. Biscuits were great (def full fat), winter greens were refreshing but that was about it. The irish stew was bland and disappointing as it did not have the flavor our waitress was talking about as I was trying to decide between it and the pot roast. Mac and cheese seemed like any other mac and cheese out there - nothing special. We also ordered one of their specialty coffees and it was also just ok.

Service: had to wait about 25 min on a Friday night but that was expected when we unexpectedly walked in after driving by. Getting a name down on a list proved difficult and hostesses were borderline rude. I would have expected a warmer experience from a place that is supposed to be serving comfort.

Value: although it didn't come out to a very expensive meal, I did not think some of the food served warranted the price paid - bland stew with potatoes and peas shouldn't be $18 but on the other hand, those buttery biscuits and great salad were worth every penny so it balanced in the end.

Ambiance: dark and warm - great for intimate gatherings or a just fun night out with friends.

Overall, I don't think I'll be coming back anytime soon as there are so many other restaurants in the lower mainland left to explore. There has to be a place with great comfort food at a great price somewhere out there! If I did come back here, I would be more careful in what I ordered and recommend others to do the same. At your own risk, bon appetite!

Su Hang Restaurant8291 Ackroyd Road, #100, Richmond
Almost didn't wanna review it since it's so good!
Submitted Tuesday, December 1, 2009 - 1:04am [Dine in]

Food: I've had a majority of the dishes from this place and I have to say everything has been great. I've even misordered dishes and they still came out great. Things I've really really liked is the deep-fried bun, potstickers, shanghai noodle and thick noodle. Complimentary dessert of some kind of almond crusted coconut jelly thing was also very good. Yum!

Service: Attentive, efficient and courteous but it tends to fall off when it gets busy.

Value: Great as the bill was always less than expected. Big portions for the dollar amount.

Ambiance: Great looking restaurant, very contemporary but it's just so packed that you feel like sardines in a can.

Overall, would return again and again and also recommend others to try. Make sure you have a reservation as it's packed all the time! Bon appetite!

Paul's Place Omelettery Restaurant2211 Granville St, Vancouver
Nice brunch on a sunny day
Submitted Tuesday, December 1, 2009 - 12:57am [Dine in]

Food: had an omelette (forget its name) with spinach, sausage and feta cheese while my partner had the huevos rancheros. My omelette was blah and bland while the huevos rancheros was delicious - would probably order it myself next time.

Service: Prompt and courteous but I've had better.

Value: Drinks were expensive but the meals were not bad - average for breakfast/brunch.

Ambiance: warm and inviting with comfy banquettes - definitely a place to take your time and enjoy your meal.

Overall, would return if I were in the area and wanted breakfast/brunch but I wouldn't go out of my way or go a distance to come here to eat as there are so many other greasy spoons around. Bon appetite!

Elbow Room, The560 Davie St, Vancouver
Great breakfast/brunch spot
Submitted Tuesday, December 1, 2009 - 12:50am [Dine in]

Food: Fritata and the Boss Burger were ordered and they were both delicious with big pieces of pepperoni in my omelette and greasy-goodness in the burger. Hash browns were a bit on the limp side - definitely have had better pretty much everywhere else. Saw the cook take beans out of the can to serve... I guess not everything can be homemade. Wipe the canned soft drinks before you drink as mine had a lot of debris on the top.

Service: Didn't experience any of the insults, and it wouldn't have bothered us if we did however, our server had to be new as she forgot to get us our drinks, couldn't get our orders straight and was generally quite lost.

Value: Food was great as the portions were quite big but charging 2.75 for a can of pop and 5.75 for a root beer float (basically two scoops of ice cream with a can of root beer) is pretty ridiculous. Just get your own water next time and skip out on their beverages.

Ambiance: lots of history and stories on the wall with many conversation pieces. Great to see a small spot like this have so much history behind it. They also support A Loving Spoonful, a great organization that provides meals to HIV/AIDS patients - and they make it easy to donate which is nice.

Overall, would return if I were ever in the area and wanted a nice big breakfast but I wouldn't drive a distance for it either. Try at your own peril!

Best thai I've had thus far
Submitted Tuesday, December 1, 2009 - 12:42am [Dine in]

Food: had a variety of the curries, pad thai, calamari and satays and everything was generally delicious and definitely better than the majority of thai food I've had in the Lower Mainland.

Service: on and off - they were quick to seat us and take our orders but then disappeared when we needed more water or to add to our orders.

Ambiance: nice but somehow is missing that cozy feel. Clean nonetheless.

Overall, I think I would return for the food and would recommend others to try it as well as it is more authentic than other Thai places.

Jade Seafood Restaurant8511 Alexandra Road, Richmond
Great service while food was good
Submitted Monday, November 30, 2009 - 11:36pm [Dine in]

Food: ordered peking duck, beef with parsley soup, soy chicken, lobster with noodles and cream sauce and the meal came with complimentary dessert of the taro with bubbles. All in all, everything was good although nothing was a standout. Perhaps I will try more of their speciality dishes next time.

Service: Very attentive and came to change our plates several times. I would think some of the best service I've ever received at a chinese restaurant. Great free parking next door.

Value: A little bit pricey but I guess you are paying for service.

Ambiance: Not bad and definitely cleaner than a lot of the chinese restaurants I've been to. Had been renovated since they took over the last restaurant in the space and it has definitely been upgraded.

Overall, I would recommend others come to eat here and ask the servers what they would recommend to order or what their specialities are. However, be aware that your wallet will take a hit!

Pen Cafe, The319 Governors Court, #101, New Westminster
Nice cafe in the middle of nowhere
Submitted Saturday, October 17, 2009 - 12:27am [Dine in]

Lost in the midst of a residential jungle is this little cafe mostly frequented by locals...

Food: I had a tomato, spinach and feta omelette which was quite good but also deceiving as it was described as coming with fresh fruit which turned out to be a small piece of melon. My bf enjoyed his BBQ chicken burger and everyone else liked their lunch entrees, with grandma really enjoying her grilled cheese.

Service: Fast and efficient - not too chatty which I enjoy but we also needed service when server could not be found.

Value: Good for what we got - not too expensive - but for the kind of food we got, I also felt we could have gotten more for what we paid.

Ambiance: Plain with a few pictures, some homemade signs and a few pairs of handcuffs. Not great and perhaps trying too hard but it's not overwhelming like some of those other sign-happy chain restaurants.

Overall, I will return as there is not much else in the area and the food wasn't bad. If you're looking for a good breakfast in a quiet place (mostly the elderly here), then this is the place to go. Bon appetite!!

Great rolls but at a price!
Submitted Saturday, October 17, 2009 - 12:11am [Dine in]

Food: chicken yakisoba, dynamite rolls and nigiri sushi were good but it was their dungeness crab roll that stood out - it had a great spicy sauce on top and crunchy bits around. Chicken yakitori was also very good and I usually don't like green onions but in this, it tasted fantastic.

Service: Not bad as there wasn't many people in the restaurant. Took a while to get a tea refill but I didn't ask either. Food came in good time.

Value: Expensive - the most I've ever spent on a Japanese meal without drinks. The food was good but it was definitely on the pricier side.

Ambiance: Clean and beautiful looking - everything from the decor to the tableware.

I wouldn't come back because of the price point but if you're not concerned with price and more with food quality, then I would recommend this place for you. Bon appetite!

My staple take-out place
Submitted Sunday, August 30, 2009 - 9:43pm [Dine in]

Food: Have ordered several different dishes from here and they've all been good. Prawns with egg on rice, beef in black bean sauce on rice, singapore style fried rice, and the list goes on. Also very good cold lemon tea.

Service: they take your order and when it's ready, you're number is posted on their flat screen tv on top. Short, sweet and efficient.

Value: Great as two meals with drinks always come in around $14.

Ambiance: It's a food court - albeit one that's nicer than most - but it's still a food court. I recommend take out if you can if you're looking for better ambiance.

Overall, I would come back again and again for the great meals and great deals. Bon appetite!

Top Shanghai Cuisine Restaurant8100 Ackroyd Rd, #120, Richmond
Not the top - perhaps the middle
Submitted Sunday, August 30, 2009 - 9:27pm [Dine in]

Food: ordered a variety of dishes and some were good and some were on the not so good side. There was a soup not translated (the first on the menu) and it was just vinegary and nothing special. Drunk chicken was good, pan fried buns were overly doughy and not enough meat, shanghai noodles were good, special fried rice was interesting with the sauce on top so not bad, deep fried rice with sweet and sour sauce was disgusting (looked like manufactured bright red nuclear goop), beef with onions was okay and ribs with honey were good. There was no complimentary dessert at the end of the meal.

Service: Absent and it was difficult to flag someone down. Long line ups but since we had a reservation, we didn't have to wait. After some spilled tea, a waitress did change the overly large plates that were making the table cramped and difficult to maneuver. We were given hard wooden stools as they ran out of chairs. Staff were terrible at directing people at the door - throngs of people just stood in the doorway making a cramped restaurant even worse.

Value: Large portions but too bad the taste was missing. Again, no complimentary dessert that other restaurants offer.

Ambiance: Cramped. We had our chairs pushed several times. To be honest, I've been at worse hole in the wall joints with more space than this place.

Overall, I would never return to this place as there are other Shanghainese restaurants with far superior food and service in Richmond. Definitely not the top as the name suggests. Hasta la vista Top Shanghai!

Submitted Sunday, August 30, 2009 - 7:15pm [Dine in]

Food: all of the dishes I've had from here have been really good. Great variety to choose from as well.

Service: You order and go wait for your number to be called. Don't expect to be pampered or anything like that - you're in a food court!

Value: Great value for food - I don't expect to spend more than $14 for two meals including two cold drinks.

Ambiance: It's a mall food court but much better than most food courts. However, it's still a mall food court.

I would definitely return again!

Jun He Restaurant2052 Kingsway, Vancouver
Yummy in my tummy!
Submitted Thursday, July 9, 2009 - 12:10am [Dine in]

Food: tastes like it comes from a whole in the wall joint but it's actually a nice restaurant. We ordered from their combo menu - could choose 6 dishes from a list of about 100 dishes and comes with free soup, white rice, dessert and speciality chicken. There are other combos to choose from as well. We had the sweet and sour chicken (yum!), honey garlic spareribs (good but the honey hardened making it difficult to get off the dish), lotus pork patties (delish!), buddha's feast (good), cold hainanese chicken (good from what I hear), duck served 2 ways (great!), some pork dish (alright) and deep fried squid (yum!). The soup and dessert were not of my liking but others at the table enjoyed it (it's the traditional kind). Complimentary tea and peanuts also served.

Service: We were one of only 2 tables through the whole night so we were tended to quite well, but it was almost overbearing but others didn't seem to mind it. Would've given it 3.5 stars if I could. Tea was refilled the whole night consistently and dishes came quickly.

Value: I don't know what the bill came to but the combos were quite affordable. I don't think it was that expensive and we also had leftovers for the next day as well.

Ambiance: New restaurant so it still looks nice. Bathrooms I hear were nice and clean. Seating comfortable and nice banquettes although they were kind of odd for round table seating.

Overall, I would return and would encourage others to try this place as well - help out the family businesses and save this place before it becomes another statistical restaurant closing! Really affordable and great food! Bon appetite!

Mad Greek7260 Westminster Hwy., Richmond
Great food but why so empty?
Submitted Sunday, July 5, 2009 - 10:32pm [Dine in]

Food: Ordered the roast lamb, chicken and prawn souvlaki, humus and kalamari starter. Kalamari was excellent whereas the humus was just ordinary. Roast lamb was amazing - possibly the best lamb I've ever had. Chicken and prawn souvlaki were amazing as well and still good the day after. Accompanying pita bread was a little bit greasy but still fluffy and good and the rice was some of the better Greek rice I've had but the potato was just ordinary and boring. Mango bellini was very tasty and I'll be back to try the other flavors.

Service: It was an empty Friday night (weird, no?) so we were attended to very well. The only thing I was bothered by was the absent tsatziki sauce in my packed box - how am I supposed to eat souvlaki without the sauce???

Value: It was an average of $20 per plate so it wasn't bad, especially when we both had leftovers. Overall, our bill with tip was $70 which isn't bad but the food quality and quantity did substantiate some of that cost.

Ambiance: Great looking restaurant with Greek accents but not overbearing. I would bring a date here.

Overall, I would return as my mom was impressed with the leftovers alone. A little more on the expensive side but the food quality is really a notch above other Greek restaurants. Enjoy!

Great service despite being busy
Submitted Monday, May 18, 2009 - 11:24pm [Dine in]

Came here for a wedding fearing the worst but was pleasantly surprised.

Food: Not bad but some things were a little greasy (which is understandable since food was cooked en masse). My favorite was the e-fu noodles and lobster. My least favorite were the quail (greasy but yet dry) and fried rice with two sauces (neither sauce tasted like anything). Overall though, not bad.

Service: It was a busy night indeed but our server, Kent, was really friendly, funny and on the ball. They were great in clearing away dirty plates and serving all of the food. The only qualms I had were they were much too eager to clear away food that was still being eaten - we had to stop them several times from taking dishes away but it was minor.

Value: I can't really comment since I did not pay for the meal but it must have been solid for the bride and groom to choose this place.

Ambiance: Cleaner and warmer than most Chinese restaurants and would def. recommend to others. Bathrooms were also nicely kept up.

I would probably return here for dim sum sometime and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to others.

Great dogs but hassled on the street
Submitted Tuesday, March 17, 2009 - 11:09pm [Dine in]

Food: I had the pleasure of trying the misomayo and oroshi and they were both quite good. I liked the sprouts on the misomayo and the veggies on the oroshi was really quite refreshing. I would recommend getting these dogs over any other dogs downtown.

Service: The lady was quite nice even though it was busy. She remembered who ordered what and was as efficient as possible.

Value: Price is comparable to other dogs on the street and with extra toppings so pretty good in my opinion.

Ambiance: It's on the street so if it's raining or windy, it can be quite unpleasant. I was also hassled by a panhandling jerk while I was trying to eat my dog and who was really rude despite me giving some change. If you see a guy who starts with the line: "I have a question. I'm not from around here. I'm from Halifax", just tell him to leave you alone, walk away or hand out an a$$ whupping. Some poor older ladies were hassled right after me and I felt badly for them.

I would def return for the dogs but will definitely try to avoid sitting outside the stand to avoid the hassle.

Submitted Tuesday, March 17, 2009 - 11:01pm [Dine in]

Food: had the smoked beef/egg/dijon mustard crepe and it was fine, a little bit greasy. I think I might try a panini sandwich next time as the table beside us raved about it. The accompanying fries were warm and crispy with the right amount seasoning. Chai latte was quite bland - just sugary and milky.

Service: very abrupt - its a "take your order and deliver your food" and that's it joint. Didn't check to make sure everything was ok after we received our food, no waters refilled. It also took some time before our food arrived.

Value: Lunch came to $13 so I guess it was fine but not great for what I got.

Ambiance: dark and cramped and a little bit on the dirty side.

I wouldn't mind coming back but I would def only do take out as the service and sitting area were not great.
