Sin Bin Sports Grill, The295 West 2nd Avenue, Vancouver
Mediocre Sports Bar

I was pleasantly surprised when I first sat down at Sin Bin, expecting it to be a dive since so many failed restaurants open and closed at this address. The atmosphere is inviting and very well kept. The staff were very attentive and willing to serve their patrons. My party was there for the UFC fight and the final for the canucks.

I ordered some Nachos and Yam fries which tasted fresh, but the boring yam fries dip and cheap tasting cheese on the Nachos turned me off. The Nachos were 14 bucks, and add a small gaucomole dip (no taste) for another 2 dollars, making the nachos $16 dollars with no beef!

What was really strange is the $5 cover charge that they told me about AFTER I sat down. yeah sure there was a sign board outside... two of them, one telling you about the dinner specials, and the other showing a $5 cover. So depending on which way you walk in, you will miss the "notice". I would have ordered more drinks and food if they didn't charge me a cover - Who still charges cover for pay-per-view these days? That's if you don't customers to come back. Which they successfully did, and I know none of my friends will return there for any games.

It's not the $5, it's the principle that management holds on it's patrons - Customers are cheap, so we must charge them upfront in case they don't buy anything.... sometimes you gotta lose money to make money Sin Bin. No more party gathering at your place...

Sushi Garden4269 Lougheed Hwy, Burnaby
A Great Disappointment for a Great Restuarant
Submitted Wednesday, February 17, 2010 - 1:44pm [Dine in]

I have been a long time customer of Sushi Garden on Kingsway in Burnaby. I bring friends, family and even business guests there to enjoy their Alaska Rolls and other great dishes. So, when I found out that they are opening a new location by my parents house on Lougheed Hwy in Burnaby, I was so excited and couldn't wait for it to open.

Unfortunately, I went there the first week of the grand opening and was rudely greeted by an unhappy waitress that did not even smile when i asked her if we could be seated.. the restaurant was half empty btw. We had to waive someone down to get service and asked three times to get our tea refilled. Instead of refilling it, she just plopped a jug of tea on the table - service with a smile? Apparently not. Not only that, the rolls tasted horrible, and the presentation was sub par compared to a Vietnamese Pho Restaurant that serves "Alberta Grade A" steak and sushi( aka Simply Delicious on Main St.)

So, I didn't want to make my conclusion in the first week of their grand opening, so I gave it three weeks and then came back. To my surprise, the service was just as horrible and the food tasted old, how could it be worse than before?

I would like to petition this restaurant to change it's name because it is ruining the original name of Sushi Garden. If it's managed by the same owner, it is quite evident that he should not be running two restaurants.

And yes, I went back to my tried-and-true Sushi Garden on Kingsway and it was great!
