Ajisen Ramen4380 No. 3 Road, #1190, Richmond
yum!
Submitted Wednesday, November 24, 2010 - 4:21am [Dine in]

My S.O. was craving ramen and it was like Antarctica outside so Ajisen seemed like the perfect place to cozy up and enjoy something hot before we head over to the theatre to watch Harry Potter. This was the first time I've gone there, so when I stepped inside and saw the layout..I was really giddy. Why? Because there was a lot of pink and there were comfy booths for us to sit in! I ordered the miso ramen and he ordered the kimchi bbq pork ramen. The meat that came with the ramen were big portions and I actually wanted more since it was so delicious. My miso was a little too salty though. I had to drink a lot of water. Our waitress was very polite, and she refilled our water and tea without us having to ask. Overall, good dinner!

Brioche401 West Cordova Street, Vancouver
Great for lunch
Submitted Tuesday, November 9, 2010 - 11:14pm [Dine in]

My friend and I stumbled upon this quaint, cozy little cafe after shopping around Gastown. For the service, all I can say is that they were friendly (welcomed in cheerful tone, ordered our food at counter, pick your seat and sit down, they bring your food to the table, and "enjoy!"). I ordered a full Caesar salad, and it was pretty dee-lish (I guess any Caesar salad is good to me unless it's dripping with dressing, or the lettuce is wilted), a chai latte, and my friend got some sort of tomato panini. Took a bite of that and it was really good too. Overall, it's an ideal, comfortable place to grab a quick lunch and have a chat with your buddy.

Cosmos Greek Restaurant14871 Marine Drive, White Rock
Meh.
Submitted Tuesday, November 9, 2010 - 9:22pm [Dine in]

Decided to have dinner here with my friend from out of town during the summer. We arrived at the doorway and stood there for about 3 minutes waiting for someone to acknowledge we were there. A couple of servers or hostess saw us standing there but nobody came over... so another minute or two of that and we walked a few feet closer to the counter. Still no one said anything to us. Finally my friend stopped a waitress and asked if we could be seated. The waitress said "Oh sorry! Didn't know you were going to eat here." We were like.. okay.. ahaha..I mean.. come on, we were awkwardly standing there for about 5-6 minutes with you guys walking by us and nobody stopped to think Hmmm, I wonder why those two girls are standing there, maybe I should ask them??
I let that go, and we happily sat down at a table outside on the patio, since it was a warm night and the sunset was too beautiful to resist! We put in our drink order, and a few minutes later ordered our entrees. I noticed that the patrons near our table looked really bored and it seemed like they've been waiting a while for their food. The man certainly didn't look too impressed, so I'm guessing that the service was slow that night.

Food: Our food came about half an hour after our drinks. (Sucks for the other customers, because their food came probably 10 minutes after ours did even though we were seated after them). The only thing I didn't like was the squid. Honestly, I've had better calamari at White Spot. I expected that it would be on an amazing-level since we're actually at a Greek restaurant.. but the batter wasn't crispy at all and it was bland. I'd order from Opa Souvlaki over this, any day. (fast service, and tasty calamari for half the price!)

Service and ambiance: Our yummy drinks, girl's heart-to-heart, and our seating in the open patio and warm summer night made up for the non-existant service. I don't remember the server coming back to check up on us on her own free will. My friend asked to have an extra shot of rum in her drink and the server nodded Yes! Sure! Well.. 10 minutes later no-nothing. Friend had to wave her down again, first attempt failed. Second attempt of waving finally got the server's attention, and only 5 more minutes my friend had to wait to get her alcohol fix. Yay! With that said.. we really did enjoy our time there though. The music was a nice touch, the belly-dancing was pretty entertaining.. and the washrooms were very nicely decorated and clean.

Guu with Garlic1698 Robson St, Vancouver
So Guu'd!
Submitted Tuesday, November 9, 2010 - 8:33pm [Dine in]

This is one of my favorite places to go eat with friends. I don't usually like loud, crowded restaurants, but Guu is an exception. It was a busy night when I came here with 3 of my girlfriends for a night out on the weekend. As we entered, the staff welcomed us, and were told we had to wait a few minutes. This was alright, I was expecting it. We were then seated on the upper level, where shoes had to be taken off to sit at those cute little tables. Pretty tight space..and my legs got kind of cramped up after a while... haha, but.. well it was worth it and I love the energetic atmosphere. We ordered the kim chi udon, pork belly, tako-yaki, ebi mayo (my mouth is watering from the thought of it), tuna tataki, and the salmon carpaccio (beautiful presentation!). Food came about pretty quickly, 1-2 at a time. The waitresses are rushed as it is a very fast-paced restaurant, BUT they're very friendly and helpful. Overall we had a fun experience, and I can't wait to go back for my Guu fix!

Sushi Garden4635 Kingsway, Burnaby
Didn't like it so much..
Submitted Tuesday, November 9, 2010 - 8:06pm [Dine in]

Went here with my boyfriend for the first time a while ago. He's been here a few times before and always said it was good for value. We got there at around 6:30pm and it was packed. Long lineup/crowd along the window at the front leading to the door so we had to wait outside since we didn't want to stand inside and awkwardly watch people eat...
Anyways after about 15-20 minutes of waiting we finally get a table. I don't like how the tables are so close together and you can hear the conversation from your neighbours. Like another reviewer on here, the waitress came over within a minute and asked "Are you ready to order??" I replied nope not yet... we just need a few more minutes..she didn't say anything and hurried off somewhere else.
No smile, no Hello there how are you.. but I guess most busy sushi restaurants are like this? I dunno.
The food was good though. Ordered some rolls, tempura, and chicken teriyaki dish.
Their food is good though. It's just the service that is lacking.
