Great Service
Submitted Tuesday, January 20, 2009 - 10:58am [Dine in]

Sat in the bar/lounge area on a Friday night and had a great food and drinks. It's more casual here and our server was fantastic. Friendly with frequent check ups. Food was very good as they have some lunch items you can order at night. The 1/2 chicken was very good and a large portion.

Great atmosphere for having a few drinks afterwork.

Good DOV
Submitted Tuesday, January 20, 2009 - 9:35am [Dine in]

First time and a great night out. Tried the stuff chicken legs as an appy. Very nice and moist with some root veggies. Had the roast pork on top of some rissotto. The pork was shredded sort of luck pulled pork. Very rich and goes will with the rice and some cabbage. Dessert was a poached pear and it was really good.

Excellent service with explanations of every dish. Nice unobtrusive kind of way. Value was pretty good for DOV and great locatin.

Mircowaved meat
Submitted Friday, January 16, 2009 - 1:49pm [Dine in]

Lunch time visit and it was really busy with staff from local businesses. Ordered the Beef Dip and when it came, there was residue/liquid on the plate just like when you mircowave meat. The bun was not a french baguette but more like a toasted hogie. Meat tasted a bit funny, perhaps due to the mirowave. Salad was just OK. My friend had the burger and didn't finish 3/4's of it as it was overdone and very hard. The french fries were dark and hard. Seemed like they either double fried it or overcooked it.

Service was very good, fast but the value was not there for poor food. Ambiance is very nice. Would not go back.

More Soy, Less Rice
Submitted Friday, January 9, 2009 - 2:17pm [Dine in]

Went by to pick up a Cali roll and a spicy Tuna roll. They look pretty good with the rolls filling up the take out boxes. Taste is decent and fresh. The only problem is that they put too much rice in the rolls. I had to take off about 1/4 of the rice. Normally I'm a 3 roll person but the 2 rolls minus the rice was filling enough. The prices for the rolls, $2.95 Cali and $4.95 Spicy Tuna, are good but better minus the excess rice. Also they only give you 1 soy sauce with each roll with an extra soy costing $.10. Unless you don't use soy, there is no way you can eat a whole roll with only 1 soy package.

Service was quick and ambiance for a grocery store pretty standard.

Submitted Thursday, January 8, 2009 - 10:48am [Dine in]

Tried this new restaurant on a weeknight and it is in out of the way part of town. Right beside the Ivanhoe Pub but it seems to have improved a bit since they have started targeting the backpacker crowd for the hotel. Shared these items. Tried a pasta, the ragu, which was full of slow cooked pork. I think the noodles were made from dry pasta and it could of been improved with a wider, fresh noodle and maybe a slightly bigger portion but great tasting. Had a pizza and it was very good, nice portion with good toppings. Also had the flank steak which was done rare-medium rare. Very nice a flavourful with a side of kale.

Nice wine selection and service was very good with the waitress giving suggestions on food and wine. Value overall is good. Would come back.

Submitted Monday, January 5, 2009 - 9:46am [Dine in]

Went here for lunch and they have a long list of lunch specials at around $6-$8. Ordered the fish on baked rice. Not bad for the price and a good choice for an everyday lunch option. But also ordered a 1/2 Hainese chicken. At $11, I would say avg. price. Tasted very good. Ordered some satays (avg and expensive) and roti (small but good). Overall just an average place. Very good service but the decor needs a major makeover. I don't think anything has changed for several years.

Bennies
Submitted Friday, January 2, 2009 - 9:56am [Dine in]

Tried their version of the eggs benny and didn't like it at all. The hollandaise sauce was average but they serve it over some sort of toast (not an english muffin) that has the texture of melba toast. Very crunch, which does not go well. Service is fine and fast. Value is just average for what you get.

Nice place but stick with their specialty.

AYCE that's not worth it
Submitted Friday, January 2, 2009 - 9:54am [Dine in]

Ended up here as there were not too many choices on NYday. The dinner AYCE is about $15, a bit lower than other AYCE but not worth it. First the sushi rice did taste right, a bit too hard. The rolls were premade and this showed up in the soft dynamite rolls. The sashimi cuts were small and tasted average. The cooked items: oyster motoyaki was tough, deep fried items were greasy, the ramen looked disgusting (small bowl of brown noodles and grey soup).

Service was quick and we got everything ordered. The place was just OK but the washrooms were bad. I would avoid this place.

Submitted Wednesday, December 31, 2008 - 11:59am [Dine in]

They have re-opened after a few months. Don't know what the problem was (ownership change, renos). A nice place for DS as there seems to be ample parking and discounts before certain times (20% before 11am). A good selection of order off the sheet DS. All the regulars are very good including various steam dumplings. Good service with timely P/U of empty plates. Would go again.

Brunch
Submitted Monday, December 22, 2008 - 1:38pm [Dine in]

First time for brunch recently and tried the eggs benny. I like the back bacon touch and the hollandaise sauce was more white than the traditional yellow. More mayonaise taste. Very good but the ham portion could of been bigger. Nice potatos (onions and rosemary). Coffee could of been a bit stronger. Very good service with warm greetings from the mgr/owner. Would return to try other items.

Nice Lamb
Submitted Tuesday, December 16, 2008 - 11:29am [Dine in]

Went there on a weeknight and it was fairly busy. Had the gilled stuff calamari to start and it was quite good. Also had a sample of the fried calamari and a bit overcooked but had a very nice taziki sauce with it. Lamb shoulder was a good portion and was quite tender. Normal sides were just OK as the rice seem a bit undercooked. Good all around food. A bit on the loud side and prices a bit higher than other greek rest. Nice efficient service.

Tapas lounge
Submitted Monday, December 8, 2008 - 2:59pm [Dine in]

Went on a weekend and this place seems to attract large groups celebrating birthdays. Very busy at around 8pm onward and more of a lounge than restaurant. Large drink menu. Food is Japanese but has a bit of fusion in it as well. Tried the raw oyster special at $15/dozen, good deal and very good. Beef sashimi (good), agadashi tofu (good), deep fried prawns (average). Value is average for this type of restaurant. Good place for get together.

Sen Sushi1855 Lonsdale Ave., North Vancouver
Nice Take out Tray
Submitted Friday, December 5, 2008 - 10:22am [Dine in]

Decided to try Sen Sushi for a take out tray. X-mas lunch at the office and everybody likes sushi. Gave them a budget of $30 and 2 trays came, 1 cooked and 1 uncooked. A good idea to separate the rolls this way. For the price, there were plenty of rolls. Even non sushi eaters seemed to enjoy the cooked rolls. Very well prepared. They even give 10% off for 1 hour notice for trays. A good option for that office party. Great husband and wife team and this place stands out along the sushi filled Lonsdale. Only drawback is the ambiance which is just very basic.

Submitted Friday, November 28, 2008 - 11:49am [Dine in]

A good place to grab a bite to eat before a hockey game. It gets busy by 5:30. Ordered their wings which are drummettes. Quite expensive at $1 each. The BBQ ones were very good. The Prime Rib Burger was a bit overcooked but was very tasty and good value at $11. Tried their hawaiian pizza and did not like the hot peppers nor the crust. Would not order that again. Service was very good and quick. Ambiance is very nice with an upstairs and downstairs.

Wonton noodle fix
Submitted Monday, November 24, 2008 - 12:02pm [Dine in]

Basically a noodle, rice and congee place that a bit more upscale than your normal type of NCG places. A big menu of chinese snacks, noodles and rices as well as a dinner menu where you can chose a 4,5,6 items for a fixed cost which includes soup and rice.

Went for lunch and tried the stir fried rice noodles (just OK), fried rice (OK), congee (OK), crispy noodles (OK). So you get the point, just an OK place to satisfy that craving. Good quick service and nice clean restaurant.

Went there on a weeknight and surprised to find it almost full. Server recommended several dishes and tried the ahi tuna - great, beef tataki-great, seared scallops-great, beef tongue cooked on a hot stone - great, sukiyaki-great, ox tail - not so good, deep fried shrimp and rice ball - average. The service was very good and food came quite quick. Nice ambiance and value is considered pretty good for all of the dishes tried. Selection of sake is quite large.

Pre Movie Dinner
Submitted Monday, November 17, 2008 - 9:41am [Dine in]

This place is close to the Paramount on Burrard so a good choice for a pre/post meal. Tried the oysters on the half shell, only one type and it came with 3 sauces/condiments. Could have given more than 1 slice of lemon for 12 oysters. Overall, average. Tried the soup which was just OK but the salads looked very good. The pork chops and steaks were very good. Dessert had a couple of options and chose the peanut butter brule. Very good. Great service and nice decor. Would go back.

Great Soups
Submitted Wednesday, November 12, 2008 - 10:32am [Dine in]

Always great selection every day. Especially like their Italian wedding and their chicken noodle. Tried the seafood chowder as well and it's average as they seem to use canned shrimp. Large size is sufficient for lunch and they have frozen soups for take home. A great alternative to your normal food fair choices. Ambiance is only decent as it's in the Lonsdale Quay. fast and efficient service.

Don't get it
Submitted Monday, November 10, 2008 - 4:18pm [Dine in]

Went there for some food and to listen to some live music. The food is suppose to be Northwest seafood. Tried some dishes like the fish and chips (good), crab cakes (ok), black cod (avg) but they also had nachos (very poor). Who looked to be like the owner had a table and they had vietnamese noodles, grilled pork and other ethnic dishes that weren't on the menu. Good drinks and service was good. The place needs a restaurant makeover.

All about the food.
Submitted Monday, November 10, 2008 - 9:50am [Dine in]

It's been said over and over again to expect a line up. On a weekday, the line ups are around 20-30 min so not that bad. Tried the salmon and tuna sushi and it's very good. House roll and scallop roll were above average. The cooked foods such as the agadeshi tofu, sable fish were above average. Service was fast and efficient but don't come here for the ambiance as there isn't any. It's just a small Japanese run restaurant that gives you great food for a good price.
