Kasuga Sushi Japanese Restaurant521 6th Ave, New Westminster
So so restaurant
Submitted Sunday, October 14, 2007 - 2:54pm [Dine in]

We decided to try out this place after read the positive reviews and we really hope to find a good decent sushi place in the neighbourhood. The decor is average, not too old but also nothing up to date. The place is spacious enough to seat. We ordered the wild salmon sashimi, alaska roll, special scallop roll and oyaka don. We wanted to try out their daily specials rolls but was told that they were not served anymore. I wondered why they still posted on the board. The servers were fine and polite but the restaurant is not run by Japanese,

The wild salmon sashimi was quite tasty with a decent portion. The alaska roll was ok but nothing impressive. The special scallop roll was little disappointing as it tasted plain. The Oyako don was a big turn off. The sauce was alright but we could taste the rawness of the chicken. It was not marinated enough to cover the frozen meat taste. The servers were fine and polite.

A restaurant serious about their food
Submitted Thursday, August 2, 2007 - 12:55pm [Dine in]

We went there during the week for a special occasion. This the 2nd time we dined there. The ambience and the decoration of the restaurant is very comfortable and relaxing to enjoy a dinner. It is not a place if you want the most trendy deco and hip ambience. My friend has the Table D'hote with beef tendalion as the main course. The ahi tuna salad and the tomato were fresh and tasted just right, nothing pretentious. The portion was decent. We were hesitated on the beef tendalion as most of those we tried elsewhere were nothing special or disappointing. But this time we knew how a good restaurant could do. The beef was so tender and soft, it was almost taste the same as those I paid $50 for a 6 oz. I am not a beef fan, but this time I was impressed. I had the lobster bisque and sablefish. The bisque was well made and not too rich, not too salty. It was just perfect.
The sablefish with lentil was impressive too. The fish was hot enough and fresh. The sauce was not to strong so that it still allowed you to taste the freshness of the fish itself. I also had strawberry with chocolate sauce. The sauce was amazaing as it was not too sweet. I can taste the milk flavour and the bitterness of the chocolate. I heard it is a house made chocolate sauce. If you want high quality food in a decent price range. This is the place.

Pretty Good neighbourhood restaurant
Submitted Thursday, June 7, 2007 - 9:29am [Dine in]

It was my first time visit. The restaurant is quite spacious and not small at all compared to some of the Japanese restaurants in. town. The server was quite attentive and gave us tea and took our order. We ordered the assorted sashimi, a few rolls and a calamari salad. The sashimi and rolls were fine but nothing really outstanding. It was the salad that really stood out. It was a spring mix salad with vinegrette and calamari with sprinkle of fried garlic. The taste was awesome and the calamari was tender.
Highly recommend the salad. The food was decent in price too. A good neighbourhood restaurant to hang out.

Guu in Aberdeen4151 Hazelbridge Way, #2790, Richmond
Nothing special
Submitted Tuesday, April 24, 2007 - 9:51pm [Dine in]

Went there with the expectation that it will be comparable to Guu in downtown, but came out to be disappointed. No daily special, limited choices on the menu. The food is ok, I won't say it is bad. Service is a bit slow as they have only 3 staff (including one in training) on a Thursday night. The staff almost has to run from table to table to take care of the customers. Ambience is not bad, clean and tidy. If I look at it as brand new restaurant, it is fine, but it is just not quite close to what the downtown partners can offer.

Fine dinning experience without the fine dinning price
Submitted Tuesday, April 3, 2007 - 11:07pm [Dine in]

Went there the second time. We had the 3 course special, mussels, rack of lamb and foie gras. The dinner special served a baked goat cheese salad, white fish and the blue berry pie. They all tasted fabulous. I'm not a goat cheese fan, but it tasted just right. It was a perfect salad to start our dinner. The white fish was juicy and tender with mashed potatoes and nice roasted veggies as condiments. The rack of lamb and the mussels were just as tasty as we had before. The surprised of the the night was the foie gras. It was baked nicely golden outside and the inside was actually semi-melted. It was the best I have ever tasted. We had the blueberry pie and baked alaska as dessert. They were awesome and definitely a fine dinning experience without the fine dinning price.

Nice place for casual dinning
Submitted Sunday, February 4, 2007 - 6:24pm [Dine in]

Went there at night. The place was half full which was good. The server was very friendly. We picked the soup and salad, lamb and a chicken burger. The carrot cumin coconut soup was very tasty. The salad dressing was great. The lamb was a bit tough and dry but wasn't too bad. The burger was tasty too. They claimed they made all their food from scratch, including soupd and bread. It was a nice place especially in the New West area.

Not as good.
Submitted Sunday, February 4, 2007 - 6:17pm [Dine in]

Went for the DOV event. We were seated almost right in frong to the entrance. The table seemed to be just added because of the event to ease the crowd. The waitress was rather mechanical as if she just wanted to get her job done. Took our order, delivered the food, that's it, no enthusiasm at all. She didn't come by to ask how was the dinner. The appy was good. We picked the seafood salad and red snapper. They were very nasty. The mahi mahi was good. But the lamb stew was just too salty. I was thirsty the whole night. The dessert was just average, you can get it almost everywhere.

A nice good authentic Japanese Restaurant
Submitted Monday, January 29, 2007 - 11:04am [Dine in]

It was our first trial at this place. The place is small but they line up the tables with reasonable spaces from each other so its actually quite comfy. Decor is new and clean. We ordered the see urchin sashimi, it was very tasty and fresh. The toro and scallop sushi were excellent, very fresh and soft. We also tried out few of their special sushi imported from Japan. But they were not too impressive as they have probably lose their freshness during the frozen and transpotation stage. Overall, you can tell the chef is trying to establish his own taste of food selection and the price is reasonable. Hope it will keep up the quality.

A decent place for a causal dinner
Submitted Monday, January 29, 2007 - 10:57am [Dine in]

Went there for the Dineout event. The place is small and all the tables are packed so close to each other. The music was just right not to soft and not to loud. The server was quite friendly and didn't push you for anything. We picked the lamb pocket and red snapper. I went for the wind flight for add $10. Everything was fine and tastey except the snapper itself. It was a bit hard and as if it had been frozen for a while. That was a disappointment. Other than that, it was not a bad place to hang out.

Submitted Wednesday, December 20, 2006 - 2:08pm [Dine in]

Went there on Monday night which has less people. Ambience is good and not over crowded. We started with a cocktail which we thought was a bit light in taste. We shared a beef tartar for appys . It was very nice presented and the beef was just right with centre pink. we picked the duck and paella (seafood and fried rice) for our entrees. The duck was very tasty and the portion was good. The paella was ok but wasn't really surprising to me. The server was good and answered our questions nicely. Overall I like the place with its own character and reasonably priced menu.

food is good

The food selection is not bad and they offer my favourite Tea, African nectar, which is good. The cookies is delicious too. But the smell inside the shop was bad at the time I was there, and made me don't want to stay. The server lady somehow wasn't too friendly.

Takarabune Japanese Restaurant6459 Victoria Drive, Vancouver
Average Jap restaurant
Submitted Wednesday, December 6, 2006 - 11:43am [Dine in]

Went there couple days ago for dinner. The menu has a a lot of hot food items and the regualr sushi and rolls. Ordered the sockeye salmon sashimi and came with 5 very thing slices. It was a little pricey considering the ambience and services it offered. The decor inside is a little old and out of date. Other food were ok but not impressive. After all it is not bad but nothing really standout.

Gohan Japanese Restaurant1815 Rosser Avenue, #1, Burnaby
Good ambience
Submitted Tuesday, September 26, 2006 - 4:12pm [Dine in]

Go there from time to time for lunch. Usually we just ordered the lunch special. The one with sushi, and teriyaki chicken is quite good. The food is tasty and the price is reasonable ($7.5). But we ordered one with mostly sushi and rolls ($12.5), that is quite expensive considering we only got a mixed of salmon, tuna and some really common sushi, and some rolls like cucumber and tuna mini rolls. It is not worth a deal. The sushi tasted ok, but not impressive. The restaurant's ambience is very comfortable. The decoration is up-to-date.

Decent restaurant
Submitted Thursday, September 14, 2006 - 11:18am [Dine in]

Went there for dinner. It was our first visit so we asked a couple question on the menu. The waitresses were very friendly and nice to provide us the details. We ordered the Choriza pasta and tuna sandwich. Both taste good. When we ordered the dessert, the waitress even provide the details of each of the item on the list, I thought that was pretty good, and sure it made us to order one.
It was the fruit flan which taste fine, but it cost a little bit much.
Afterall, we had a good expereience there.
