Zakkushi Charcoal Grill823 Denman St, Vancouver
A different izakaya
Submitted Thursday, November 6, 2008 - 11:02am [Dine in]

I've been to the other izakaya's and this place is a bit different as the robota grill is front and centre. Menu has various meat choices. Tried the sampler which was very good. They also have varied chicken skewers which were just ok. Good beef tar tar and agadashi tofu. A good atmosphere and it sounds and feels like a place in Japan. Service was decent with prompt service. Value is just solid as it's just a tapas place.

Nice Asian Food
Submitted Wednesday, October 29, 2008 - 10:30am [Dine in]

Went there before a Canucks game for a pre-dinner meal. Had the spicy squid as a appy and it was quite good. Shared a few mains which included Singapore Noodles. Was a bit hesitant on ordering an Asian dish from this brew pub but they do have a lot of Asian noodle dishes on the menu. The singapore noodles were very good with lots of meat and shrimp. Very surpirsed. Tried the Halibut which was just OK and a pizza. Pizza was very good with lots of toppings and ample sauce. Service was good and they got us out and to the game in plenty of time. Value is just decent for a brew pub. Would go again for a pre-game meal.

Havana Restaurant1212 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Not good value
Submitted Tuesday, October 28, 2008 - 11:06am [Dine in]

Went to Havana's on a weeknight and tried a couple of their starters. The ribs were just ok, a bit too wet for my liking as it was smothered with some sort of sauce. The seafood trio was good but not worth the $16 charge for the amount you get. 1 scalloop, 3 prawns and some tuna tartare. The chicken wrap was the only main tasted as it was very good and nice shoestring fries. The service was very attentive and drinks just average. Wouldn't chose this place as a pure dining experience. Would only return in the summer to be on the deck.

Sushiyama371 East Broadway, Vancouver
Nice alternative
Submitted Monday, October 20, 2008 - 10:01am [Dine in]

Tried to go to Toshi's and Shiro's on Sat but both busy so tried this place. Seems to be run by Japanese. Fresh sushi with your standard choices, rolls were pretty good (lots of selection). The cooked food was a bit below standard as the rice (don) bowls were on the salty side. Value was very good for the food ordered. Area is a bit sketchy but that's East Broadway.

Great Vietnamese Place
Submitted Friday, October 17, 2008 - 9:42am [Dine in]

Finally a good place to have some Vietnamese food in Kits. Very good pho but a bit lacking of advertureous meat toppings but I think this fits into the Kits crowd. The salad rolls were one of the best I've tasted, the wrappings were so soft and not too big. Great spring rolls as well. The combo lunch/dinner options were huge and around $8-9. Service was great with what looks like a family operation. Ambiance is clean and bright.

Boston Steakhouse8171 Alexandra Road, Richmond
Average HK Cafe
Submitted Monday, October 6, 2008 - 9:57am [Dine in]

Never liked these ;places as they just have too many choices and doesn't do any of them very well. Chose the E-fu noodles soup with chicken. Bland soup and it looked like they just stir fry some chicken and then put it right onto the soup/noodles. Should of know better and stuck with the steak/pork chop rice combos that they have. Good value at $8-9 with drink. Wouldn't go back but if you like HK Cafe's, it'll be good for you.

Feenie's Signature Dishes
Submitted Monday, October 6, 2008 - 9:53am [Dine in]

I haven't been to a CC for a while but stopped by this location on a Friday. Nice to see that it had about a dozen Feenie signature dishes. All quite interesting and I tried the ravioli with sage and pine nuts. Very good combination and for the price, mid teens, quite reasonable. Server was very accomodating as there was a baby in the group. Would go again to try the other RF signature dishes.

Shanghai River Restaurant7831 Westminster Hwy., #110, Richmond
Great Northern Chinese Food
Submitted Friday, September 26, 2008 - 4:23pm [Dine in]

Went there on a weeknight for dinner and it was full which is not surprising given the price point. A good location with ample parking and nice ambiance, the best ambiance of all of the shanghainese food restaurants in Richmond. Set dinner for 10 ordered at $250. Great food especially the crab and the smoked duck. Had to order the soup dumplings as that's what they are known for. Love the open kitchen. The only down side was service was bit lacking in terms of clearing plates and refilling the tea. A bit understaffed. Good value for the dollar.

Nice new digs
Submitted Friday, September 19, 2008 - 9:32am [Dine in]

The new place is called a gastro/pub sort of like those NY bars such as the Spotted Pig. Nice decor with brick walls, long bar and great seating area. Long table on one side of the restaurant for community dining. Ordered the fries which came with some great curry dipping sauce and the sausage. Sausage was just average. Tried the lamb which was very good but the curry chicken was good but out of place here. Service was good. Would return for sure.

Himalaya Restaurant6587 Main St., Vancouver
Just OK
Submitted Thursday, September 18, 2008 - 9:42am [Dine in]

Went there for dinner and chose not to have the buffet option and ordered off the menu. Ordered the fish curry and the lamb curry for the mains with the Samosa's as a appie. The dishes were quite small but for $7 I guess that's Ok. The curries were a bit on the bland side but I did enjoy the fish curry. The samosa's came with some chick peas and they were very average. The Nan came out like elephant ears, huge and not cut. I don't know if this is the norm. Overall, there are many better Indian restaurants. The place needs a remodel as it's more like a giant cafeteria.

Paddlewheeler Pub810 Quayside Drive, #126, New Westminster
Great Patio
Submitted Tuesday, September 16, 2008 - 2:44pm [Dine in]

One of the best places to eat when it's nice and warm as you get a great view of the river. The patio is quite large so it can accomodate a lot of tables. As for the food, tried the seafood salad and it was just ok as there should be a bit more seafood and more types of dressing rather than your normal boring choices. Service was quick and efficient. Great place for a bite to eat and a few drinks on a sunny day.

Aoki Sushi1888 W. Broadway St, Vancouver
Great Sushi
Submitted Friday, August 29, 2008 - 10:36am [Dine in]

Been to this place once before and had a good meal so returned recently. A Japanese owned sushi place which is somewhat rare these days. The chef is a bit ecentric as he wears some sort of mask on his head (hair). Only tried the sushi/sashimi and it was very good. Sashimi served in ice plates and salmon was wild. Tuna was soft and very good. Rolls were above average but didn't try any of their fancy rolls. Service was fast and efficient. Ambiance is the only down side with it being more like a cafe than a restaurant. Would go back.

Worth a visit
Submitted Thursday, August 28, 2008 - 2:20pm [Dine in]

Went during the week and they have some specials for $2.75. I rather not go to a place that has Dim Sum carts as I don't think it's as fresh, but no choice here. The things on the Dim Sum cart were a bit 'old' such as the Shangai dumplings and sui mai. Good thing the shrimp dumplings were made to order as well as the spring rolls. Avoid the food in the non-steaming cart as it was cold. Service was really good, quick and fast to clear plates. Overall a good dim sum for this part of Burnaby/Coquitlam. Value at about $10-11/person which is pretty good for dim sum these days.

Just OK
Submitted Monday, August 25, 2008 - 12:00pm [Dine in]

Went there for a quick bite to eat and ordered the miso ramen and gyoza combo. Only received one slice of meat which I thought was a bit skimpy. The soup was very good and lots of veggies. Noodles were adequate and I would say the same quality as the ones you can get from the supermarket. Gyoza tasted Ok. Service was a bit slow and unorganized. Would not go back.

Good value
Submitted Friday, August 22, 2008 - 9:49am [Dine in]

Tried it on a weeknight with 4 people and each chose one of their combo meals to share. You get salad, satay, spring roll and one entree. 2 prices as the higher price allows you to chose the seafood options on the dishes. 3 curries tried and all very good. One was a bit on the sweet side but that may be the style of the curry. A great value with good, quick service. Not much to say about the interior as it's a small family style place. Would return for a quick, cheap dinner. Looks like they have an even better deal at lunch.

Nice View
Submitted Thursday, August 21, 2008 - 2:51pm [Dine in]

Went during the week for lunch for the first time. Ceasar salad to start and very good with shaves of cheese but no croutons, only bread sticks. Had the sable fish and pasta. Decent size for the fish but pasta was a bit too much. They said it was tagleterre (sp) but it looked and tasted like fettucine. The pasta had some peas and in some sort of light broth/butter sauce. Perhaps some grilled veggies to make it not that starchy for lunch. Very good service and great views. Would only go again on an expense account.

Song Huong Vietnamese Restaurant1613 Nanaimo Street, Vancouver
Great Pho
Submitted Monday, August 18, 2008 - 2:11pm [Dine in]

This place is very busy which is a good sign. The other place on the opposite corner is never busy and there was a recent shooting there. With the local crowds, knew this was a good choice. Tried the small special pho with the mix of everything in it. Very good but could be a bit bigger but my fault for not ordering the large. Meat tasted very good. Shrimp salad rolls were smaller than what I am used to but very tasty with a hoisin sauce versus your usual peanut sauce. Service was fast but no followup after. Place is comfortable but ambiance is not their focus with dated interior and washrooms. Good place for a quick/cheap meal.

Great lunch spot
Submitted Thursday, August 14, 2008 - 4:03pm [Dine in]

Tried this place for lunch and had a good variety of lunch specials such as boxes and roll combos. Tried their roll and sushi combo which was very good. Rolls included some sort of smoked salmon, tempura roll. Sushi pieces are a bit on the small side with the rice being a bit big. Fast service which is important at lunch. Room is a bit run down and needs a bit of attention. Will go back and try again.

Not up to Earl's standard
Submitted Wednesday, August 13, 2008 - 10:01am [Dine in]

Went for lunch during the week and the place was not as busy as I thought it would be, approx. 50% full. Had the calamari and a lot of the pieces were stuck together which made it tough to eat. Spring berry salad with chicken was not very good, with chicken dry and dressing lacking. Friend ordered the NY strip and was tough. Service was average.

Stay Away
Submitted Monday, August 11, 2008 - 9:48am [Dine in]

I never liked HK style Cafe's and this place reinforced my opinion. The menu has lots to chose from but it tells me that they don't do anything well. Had the beef with egg. For $8.95 it was not that inexpensive. I left half on my plate as it was just bad. Companions had the pork chop on rice which was also bad and not finished. Baked seafood rice was average if you like the wet creamy sauce on your food. Cash only and food came in dribs and drabs. Just stay away and don't waste your time or money.
