Hon's Wun Tun House1339 Robson Street, Vancouver
Beware George Bush Might Attack Hon's!
Submitted Sunday, September 10, 2006 - 11:47pm [Dine in]

Hon's had the vision to open a Chinese noodle joint downtown Vancouver. Hon's has had the fortune of getting the student/tourist traffic and has managed to stay popular but here's where my praises stop.

I've eaten at Hon's at least half a dozen times and pretty much sampled all the usual suspects in the typical Chinese noodles shops.

Soup noodles are OK, but pretty much everything else is average at best and laden with MSG and most of all EVERYTIME I've eaten something stir fried I would find a disguting pool of OIL at the bottom of the plate. Within an hour of eating at Hon's I'm always thirsty because of the MSG & lethargic because of the grease.

So beware of eating at Hon's, once George Bush discovers that Hon's is a major supplier of OIL he might go looking for weapons of mass destruction there.

What finally turned me off by Hon's was the consistently poor service from the fresh off the boat staff, I will not go back there again.

Want really good quality, authentic Chinese noodles, go to Congee Noodle House on Broadway

Stepho's Greek Taverna1124 Davie St, Vancouver
People Are Sheep to Eat Lamb!
Submitted Thursday, August 24, 2006 - 1:32pm [Dine in]

I really don't understand why people line up 30,60 mins for this place.

Yes, food is not bad, portions are big and price is very reasonable. But that's about it. Everything is premade, food is at most good for the money.

People giving this place a 5 star rating has obviously not been willing to spend $3-$5 dollar more for real souvlaki.

Service is so-so at best but one thing good is place is always busy and lively.

On an absolute level, compared to higher end Greek places, it's 3 stars for food, & 5 stars for value.

Go here is you are a poor student, but forget the hype, don't be a silly sheep by following the crowd to eat pre cooked lamb

There are 2 other Greek restaurants in the vicinity there, go pay $2-$3 and you'll know what I mean.

Hakata Sushi887 W. Broadway, Vancouver
Salmon Sickle Sashimi
Submitted Friday, August 18, 2006 - 2:18am [Dine in]

I work a block away from this restaurant and went there 3 times for lunch....each and every time I left the restaurant highly disappointed.

First of all, anyone should be suspicous of a Japanese restaurant with no Japanese (Asians) in there as customers...typical crowd is the white guy putting extra wasabi on with their california roll (& think they are taking a walk on the wild side). 7-11 sushi was better than this.

100% not authentic. Japanese rolls their eyes when Chinese/Korean make Japanese food...but Chinese/Korean chefs rolls their eyes when Vietnamese guys make Japanese food...and that is what Hakata Sushi is, a Vietnamese/Japanese restaurant (I'm surprised they don't serve bubble tea & falafels!).

The reason I think so poorly of this restaurant is because of my last & final experience there. I ordered Salmon sashmi during the lunch rush and server informed me they might not have it???? That's like Mcdonalds saying they don't have fries for lunch.

Finally, I was served the sashmi and it was ROCK hard!!! It was obvious it was not even properly defrosted and they served me a salmon sickle...disgusting! No self respecting Japanese restaurant would have served this to a customer. Ok, maybe I was too hard on them, so I order some rolls...appalled again!! The sushi rolls were almost the size of my fist with the insides falling out. Did these guys use a carpet instead of bamboo to make these rolls??? Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy!

After reading this review and you still insist on eatiing your generic california roll/ teriyaki, there are sooo many other choices on west broadway.

Do yourself a favour and walk 1 or 2 blocks down broadway (there are at last 4-6 other Japanese in the radius) and don't eat this mall food made at sit down prices.

Still don't believe me, go there yourself and you'll know I am not exagerating.
