Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant3888 Main Street, Vancouver
Great food, great service!
Submitted Sunday, February 22, 2009 - 6:12am [Dine in]

Whenever I think Chinese in Vancouver, I think about this restaurant, which is much better than the SSW in Richmond. They serve very tasty, fresh seafood, and high quality dim sum. We love their Crab and Fish Maw Soup and the Portuguese Seafood Rice. Their hotpots are very tasty too, like the Singing Chicken, Tofu and Fish Hotpot.

King Crab is very deliciously prepared here. However, to me, I always think that perhaps not all the claws were served to us because amount of the crab plated doesn't match with how many legs the crab has.

The servers here are extremely friendly and accommodating. Except the main hostess who have been known to be quite rude to customers. But the Alan the manager and the rest of the servers are just incredible that her behavior can be overlooked.

Little Mexico Cantina3131 Chatham St., #150, Richmond
I would NEVER return here!
Submitted Sunday, February 22, 2009 - 5:55am [Dine in]

We went to this place after hearing very good things about their food. However, we were very disappointed. I order the Broken Sombrero and my friend ordered the Beef Fajita. The Broken Sombrero was basically soggy tortilla chips. Kinda gross. The Beef Fajita was a surprise - the beef pieces was cut very big and had no flavour!! This had to be the worst Beef Fajita we EVER tried! In addition, our drinks tasted very funny. The coke tasted like it was mixed with some SOAP, and my virgin strawberry daiquiri tasted very watered down and weird - again the WORST I've ever tasted.

We did NOT want to take any left-over home and would definitely not return to this place. We talked about this experience with a Mexican friend of ours and he was surprised that their served the Broken Sombrero. He explained that it's a home-style breakfast in Mexico, but not something normally served at a restaurant.

The owner recommended these dishes so highly that we felt compelled to try them. Perhaps an acquired taste.

Matsuyama8500 Alexandra Road, #110, Richmond
LOVE their crunchy roll!
Submitted Sunday, February 22, 2009 - 5:45am [Dine in]

This place has become our favourite Japanese restaurant in Lower Mainland. I'd highly recommend their spicy crunchy roll, which as shrimp tempura, spicy tuna, salmon, etc. Sooo good!! We also love their Matsuyama roll, chopped scallop sushi which is piled high with scallops! After 9:00 pm, they offer late night special and the nigiri sushi are under $1.00 a piece, which is a great deal for the quality that you're getting! And like the previous reviewer, their beef sashimi is VERY tasty! Highly recommended!

I only give a 2 for ambiance because after renovation, the place now has cushiony chairs like a western diner, as compared to a more traditional Japanese decor that it had previously. We were disappointed with the new look, but can't complain when the food is so top-notch! :)

Mad Greek7260 Westminster Hwy., Richmond
What a rip!
Submitted Sunday, February 22, 2009 - 5:34am [Dine in]

This place claimed to be rated #1 Greek in Richmond but we found the food to be one of the worst Greek food we've tried. The humus is VERY bland - not garlicy, not very citrus, basically tasteless! I ordered the dried pork ribs - again, barely any taste, and for a whooping $20.95!!

I had a much better dried ribs at a Greek restaurant on North Road (Coquitlam) which was bursting with flavours! It wasn't the one on the order of North Road and Lougheed, but further north of there, along North Road.

My friend ordered the rack of lamb, which they claim they're famous for. He said it's just ok, but nothing special.

We left there, minus $70.00, and feel pretty cheated!

Maria's Taverna2324 W 4th Ave, Vancouver
Best Humus in Lower Mainland
Submitted Sunday, February 22, 2009 - 5:24am [Dine in]

Ever since the Great Greek restaurant in California, which has absolutely the most delicious pita EVER, I've been trying almost every Greek restaurant around Vancouver, Richmond and Burnaby to find the best humus and pita. And here at Maria's, they have got hands-down the best humus I've ever tasted. Super creamy, garlicy and the just the right amount of citrus! I crave it quite often and have ordered humus and pita as take out. Although the pita here in Lower Mainland are all thick and bread like, unlike the pita I fell in love with at Great Greek, which was so soft and buttery inside and crusty on the outside.

The servers here are friendly. Beside humus, we loved the Keftedes and Moussaka. Lasagna is not too good.
