Hmmm, it's good.
Submitted Wednesday, May 4, 2011 - 12:00pm [Delivery]

The food is good - not incredibly special, but solid. Flavorful and satisfying. Nice selection, and they tend to tweak your order if you ask.
Delivery is great - quick and great staff. Never rude.
The prices are a bit up there but not too bad. Can't say I feel cheated.
Very comforting food when you're tired of sushi and Chinese stir fry.

fast delivery!

The delivery people are quite friendly and deliver your order pretty quickly.
The food is good, not the most amazing pizza but good and creative. The prices really work for someone who's not able to fine dine every day of the week.
I like their pizza sauce and thin crusts.
Very decent place to order from if you have lots of people over and family.

lovely lunch!
Submitted Wednesday, May 4, 2011 - 11:50am [Dine in]

Nice options, hot pot is outstanding. It's super fun to be able to cook your own food on a hot pot.
I especially like that there is no msg, and the flavours are clear and simple.
The staff is friendly, family owned so they have this nice vibe that rubs off on the general great dining experience.
The place sometimes seems a little deserted but that's because the delivery is constant. It's nice to come in however, especially because you'll be looked after and it won't be too stuffed.
I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

Worst duck, ever. Service wasn't good at all and food took too long for coming lukewarm. Portions are huge but too fatty and low quality. Wonton soup was waaaay too salty and I hated the egg rolls. The place was overly crowded and there was a lot of kids crying. Which is ok but I was already annoyed and it amplified the whole deal. Not coming back.

This place looks very hidden somehow - but it's a real gem!
The pho is superb - according to my bf. The hot and sour soup I got was not what I expexted, very different. FRESH! I actually loved it. The service is freakishly perfect. Refilling our drink when needed and absolutely very polite. Will returj to try more of their dishes. This is our new staple for a nice, cheap and quick meal.

Submitted Saturday, March 26, 2011 - 6:27pm [Dine in]

Went here and got pick up. They serve you tea while you wait, you can also enjoy miso soup. Everything was well portioned and delicious. Large sashimi slices, great ebi sunomono. I asked for extra wasabi and ginger, which they added lots of without any extra charge. Server was a very nice guy who did things quickly and effortlessly. No smug attitude and it seems to be family run, very friendly. I will be coming back and recommending this place.

Not great, not worth it.
Submitted Thursday, April 8, 2010 - 11:59pm [Dine in]

Food here is what you expect. Fast and greasy but even more so than you're usual fried grub. Having said that, I do appriciate it for what it is when I'm hung over and need a fix. (it's near by and did I mention it's quick!?) I like the jalapeno peppers a lot with my fried chicken. Guilty, as charged. oh, and it's cheap which is a deal breaker for me.
Service sucks. The people working seem miserable and somehow it rubs off one way or another and I am miserable after too.
Ambiance is almost non-existant/ dirty. I don't eat here, ever.

Overall it's okay, I return but I doubt I'd recommend it to someone I liked or respected.

Over-priced but usually a very pleasant meal.
Submitted Thursday, April 8, 2010 - 12:13am [Dine in]

This place has a nice selection and I appriciate having options of ingridients. Kind of like subway, I supose - but more "gourmet"
Lots of great soups, really great!
Besides the manager the staff is great. The manager seems a little stressed out and snappy. The staff is almost always friendly.
Value-wise: Costly little cafe.
The ambiance is nice but slightly cluttered and limited in space.

Submitted Thursday, April 8, 2010 - 12:03am [Dine in]

The food is alright, the lentil soup I like especially. The salads aren't worth it, and def avoid the pizza! Unless you prefer it stale nooked in the microwave. To each his own, right? Donairs are so-so too, they seem expensive and rather lacking.
The service is good (for a foodcourt), nice folks. But they seem sad all the time, which might or might not be relevant to this review.
Value isn't great.
Ambiance is kind of n/a.

I still return here for the lentil soup, however. ;)

This place is either decent or bad. The food doesn't taste fresh to me, and I've tried it on numerous occasions. More often thatn not it's luke warm and overly seasoned. The staff seem snotty or atleast unfriendly. Just regular fast, cheap, okay-ish Chinese food. Even for a mall food court joint it's less than decent.

My kind of sushi place :)
Submitted Tuesday, January 26, 2010 - 11:11pm [Dine in]

I like the rolls and sashimi slices. The rolls are creative and well made, not a hasty job at all. The sashimi is on the thick side but not steak like, just right. I enjoy the food so much I can't say I notice the amiance, it never bothers me. Service is pretty good and friendly. Not a 5 star dining experience but more of a regular stop to get so me good food :)

Submitted Saturday, December 5, 2009 - 1:35am [Dine in]

This place is not top notch per say. The atmosphere is okay; has improved since it's been renovated. Not extremely, but at least there's more space. The bathrooms are the smallest, most clustered booths you'll ever see. The value is okay, not over priced but not cheap. The food is not great. But the coffee is good, the beer is good as it usually is. Convenient, either way. Service is quite friendly and over all it's nice because it's all surrounded by lousy establishments. It's your best bet in the neighborhood.

The food is pretty good if you get it before say 3pm. Otherwise it's a little cold and bland. The prices are okay, the portions too. There's too much hype about this joint, really it's just very fast and convenient food. Not bad and not great. The one positive differences from the other places is the friendly staff. They're nice about accommodating to pesky request. Not much stand out otherwise...

Ohukuya Japanese Restaurant2528 Kingsway, Vancouver
Nice place.
Submitted Saturday, October 31, 2009 - 3:13am [Dine in]

Food is tasty, fresh and creatively done. Always a treat, and on budget.
The hours are good, for those who eat much later in the day/night.
Roy (the manager) is awesome, always there in the midst of the action. He'll easily tweak your order according to your whims.

I got no complaints besides that they need larger washrooms perhaps. Or a larger place in general. Would recommend Ohukuya to my friends and family.

Okay and not so okay sometimes, too.
Submitted Monday, October 19, 2009 - 2:33am [Dine in]

Hmm...I've been a little conflicted after my past few visits here. The place is not too shabby; it's roomy and the decor isn't tacky or dated like many others.
The service sucks. Unless you get the manager serving you which isn't likely anyway.
The All-you-can-eat really sucks. If you don't finish what's in front of you, most likely you'll be charged extra. Even if it's a tough meat-like leathery skin stuck to a chicken bone. The portions are sad, the quality lacking. Taste-wise you're in for quite a bland experience. Of course, there's limit on how much sashimi you can order. But that's common, so can't hold that against this place.
Anyway, if you order off the regular menu, it's a different story. Miraculously, portion sizes are doubled, there's flavour and some presentation. And you won't have to eat it all up if you don't feel like it.
Service is slightly better too, but only slightly.
Had dinner there tonight with family and everyone was fed and mostly pleased. The tea was lukewarm but I think I was the only one who was bothered by it, since nobody else was drinking it. Oh, and the miso soup was muc too salty, also lukewarm and only had traces of crumb-like pieces of tofu and seaweed swimming around. Service was on the ok side of the usual barely-service-at-all.
I won't say I won't be back but it's not a favourite or even a top 10 favourite place of mine.

Submitted Tuesday, July 7, 2009 - 9:43pm [Dine in]

This place is always steady, busy. Must admit some of the customers are questionable. I'd keep an eye out for your purse, bag, etc.
I like the relaxed atmosphere, it's very easy to enjoy a pitcher and some wings. The wings are pretty damn tastey, too! tried various other dishes and they weren't bad but not good. Not the best place for intimate conversations, you must speak up in order to be heard because it's LOUD. but it's fun. Good for saturday night catching up with your friends :)

I've been to this bakery numerous times. Nothing but pleasant experiences. Maybe a bit pricey, but most such places are. Very delicious, nice selection too. The people working are warm and friendly. Fresh goodies. Nothing to complain about regardking the food or service. However, there is no place to sit down and enjoy your treat. It's all "to-go" style.
Stays open quite a while, which is nice.

Not great
Submitted Tuesday, July 7, 2009 - 9:03pm [Dine in]

Fast and cheap. $4 for two slices (not as big as they used to be, still on the large side) plus a pop. They take Debit (unline a lot of similar joiunts). Free Ranch sauce and hot sauce. Sometimes there's cheese, too.
Anyway.
Not as good as it used to be. Uncle Faith's is better quality, value and the people are a touch friendlier. Although, niether places are going to win the award for super social skills anytime soon...

been to this place a few times now... too much fatty meat cuts and tons of bones. The flavours are top notch, however. everything is well balanced and you can add to it with quite a nice selection of condiments and such. drinks, even tea, always avaliable self serve. the place could benefit from a bit of a friendlier staff and that's not just when you are paying them.

oh, but the breakfast it a nightmare. opt for lunch/dinner.

i took my parents there last night and yeay! great survice, although it was pretty busy they still kept up and made us feel cared for. very young staff so you have to give them props for being so professional and talented because the food was top notch. we even got a crunchy roll for free just because. and my mom's salmon teriyake wasn't ready in time with the rest of our meals so they gave her chicken and then brought the salmon too as soon as it was ready. everything was well portion, beyond well priced and the place was so cozy and CLEAN! def going back and i will tell everyone i know to visit this place. :)
