Closet thing to an "Alberta-Style" Donair I have found in Vancouver.
Submitted Sunday, May 2, 2010 - 9:45pm [Dine in]
Donairs in the city of Vancouver are pretty lame compared to the artery clogging meat-and-chesse bonanzas that you find at nearly every donair place in Alberta. And as an Alberta transplant... it has been very disappointing trying to find something similar here.
And while Vancouver Donair still doesn't quite compare with what I am used to... it is by far the best donair I have found in this city. You still get your veggies in there... but the meat is the focus of this donair and the portion is generous. Sauce is also very tasty and the people working there are liberal with it as well.
Not quite home, but this place definitely gets me by in between Alberta visits!!

I live just a few blocks away from Tentatsu and thus have been there many times... and while it is my local favorite, I will also often forgo sushi in other parts of the city to return home to my favorite.
Here are the highlights:
Rolls are all pretty solid and very reasonably priced... as are the gyoza, agedashi tofu, gomae and such.
Spicy tuna sashimi is comparatively dirt cheap and SOOO delicious. In fact, I usually ask for an extra order of their spicy sauce and end up dipping basically everything else I order in it.
Their beef yakisoba is VERY large... enough to split between 4 - 6 people as a side dish, and again, well priced. Under $10, I believe.
Staff is always very friendly... ambience is nice and they are open until 10pm, 7 days a week.
Worth going out of your way for!!!

Made reservations for a Friday night at 8pm. Not necessary. We were the only people in the restaurant... THE ENTIRE TIME!! Which is surprising, because this place is excellent. We were informed that they have more of a lunch and early dinner following.
Quiet restaurant was our gain, though. Service was attentive, helpful, and accurate. Excellent appetizer recommendation of the tomato garlic shrimp. The sauce is to die for, mopped up by the complimentary warm pizza-crust-style bread. 10 to 12 shrimp in the dish and only $8.95. The highlight for sure.
Main course pastas were solid. Clearly, homemade pasta. Reasonable portions to fill you up though you might not be taking any home. Again, reasonably priced under $15.
We used our entertainment book and the while the server gave us the discount... she was also kind enough to not scratch the number off of our card so that we may return and use it again... which we most certainly will.
Highly recommend checking out this hidden gem!!
