good noodle shop
Submitted Friday, October 29, 2010 - 6:53pm [Dine in]

these types of noodle shops are the new rave in richmond. good, quick, and good value. the service leaves a lot to be desired, but once you get what you ordered, you really don't need them 'til it's time to ask for the bill. if you stick to the combo's guidelines, it's straight up cheap. it's when you start to change things up or add extras. i find it very amusing when people complain about being charged extra for a cold drink, or for some kind of substitution... it says you'll be charged extra right there on the menu! anyways, good eats, kind of busy at times, but that's ok, cattle cafe downstairs is almost exactly the same.

great seafood
Submitted Friday, July 16, 2010 - 1:22am [Dine in]

i've been here a few times, and every time has been great. some very creative dishes, especially that damn lobster poutine that is going to kill me. definitely a place you take people you want to impress. the service here is top-notch. prepare to pay a pretty penny, but everyone deserves to splurge every now and then.

just pass this place and continue to steveston
Submitted Monday, July 12, 2010 - 1:41pm [Dine in]

steveston was busy on canada day and we had a craving for fish and chip's, so we decided to give this place a try since we've passed it countless times. food was not that great, but the thing that made me remember to put up a review was that you had to pay for tartar sauce for an order of fish and chips? that's a first for me.

Toyotomi Japanese Restaurant4121 Hastings St, Burnaby
great rolls and small donburi's
Submitted Friday, December 26, 2008 - 12:50pm [Dine in]

this place has so many "special" rolls, and a lot of them are really good. my favourite is the toyotomi II roll. the crispy onions topping is wicked good. they also have a great selection of small donburi's to choose from that are really inexpensive. the ambiance isn't great, but as long as the food is good and the tables/plates clean, that's good times for my stomach.

hainanese treat
Submitted Wednesday, December 17, 2008 - 1:08pm [Dine in]

the hainanese chicken here is tasty, maybe not the best, but good nonetheless. the mound of chicken rice i got was mushy in the middle, but didn't matter with the tasty chicken. i don't like their puree'd version of the ginger&green onion oil/sauce, but again the chicken stands out. will go back again to try some of the noodle soups.

worth it
Submitted Wednesday, December 10, 2008 - 7:13pm [Dine in]

probably the best ambiance out of any chinese restaurant out there. not exactly the cheapest, but it's worth it if you want a clean and pleasant experience coupled with quality chinese food. this is definitely a place you'd want to take out of town guests to. dim sum or dinner, always a great meal.

owner ruins it
Submitted Wednesday, December 10, 2008 - 7:06pm [Dine in]

the quality of food is here is good, except the portion sizes are really small sometimes. typical chinese restaurant with regards to service, value, and ambiance. my only gripe is that the owner is a prick (i'm assuming he's the owner because he's always there telling people what to do and the only one working not wearing a uniform). just pop in and you'll know what i'm talking about. he needs to either lighten up, or get the hell out of the restaurant.

not what it used to be
Submitted Saturday, November 15, 2008 - 12:48pm [Dine in]

i've eaten their food since i was a kid. back when they were still part of hoy's in east vancouver, their brief stints on kingsway by the super save and on north road & lougheed hwy, and now near nikkei place. i'm sad to say the food for me has gone downhill. in my opinon, their food has become more and more western friendly the further they've moved east along kingsway. i do have friends that live and die by mr. ho's, and i can understand. some people enjoy the westernized versions of chinese dishes, and there are people like me that don't.

Tamarind Hill Malaysian Cuisine628 6th Avenue, #103, New Westminster
in new west?
Submitted Saturday, November 15, 2008 - 12:29pm [Dine in]

when i first heard about how good tamarind hill was, i couldn't help but question the fact that it was in new west. as shocking as it was, we made our way into new west to give it a try. from the outside and when you walk in, you instantly get a vibe that the owners made sure to take into account the ambiance of their gem. the only gripe is that the dining area is very, very tight. the food we ordered came quick, but that could've been because we got there later in the evening. one of my favourites is hainese chicken, and it was great here. very healthy serving compared to other malaysian restaurants in the lower mainland. i got the feeling that some of the servers had to have been related. whatever the case, they were proud of their restaurant and it showed in their great service. will be back soon.

Taverna Greka Waterfront Restaurant326 Columbia Street, New Westminster
always empty
Submitted Wednesday, November 12, 2008 - 12:17am [Dine in]

the dining area for this restaurant is kind of akward, but a handful of restaurants along columbia are drawn up like this to take advantage of the "view" of the river. taverna also has a large dining area on the side that i've never really noticed anyone eating in during dinner time. the price is high for food that is decent at best. craving greek and too lazy to travel to anywhere decent, and you get what you've settled for. probably won't ever go back.

sauce please!!!
Submitted Tuesday, November 11, 2008 - 5:44pm [Dine in]

the food here is always great. all my favourite malaysian dishes are well represented (mmm...oyster omelette). hainese chicken here is one of the best in the city. the chef is very proud of his cooking, and shows it by coming out of the kitchen and checking to see your face while you're enjoying his food (sometimes even coming over and asking how it is). the service is always top notch, except i have one gripe... why so stingy on the sauce? seriously, how much money does the restaurant lose by providing me with a heaping spoonful of ginger/green onion/oily goodness?

reliable hk cafe
Submitted Sunday, November 9, 2008 - 1:17pm [Dine in]

nothing really stands out at i cafe, and at the same time there isn't really anything that bad to mention. the menu items are standard hk cafe fare, and everything is reasonably good. service is satisfactory, nothing to really complain about. my only gripe is that most of the flat screen tv's in this place are all mounted akward based on the seating.

candy for your eyes, nothing for your tummy
Submitted Friday, September 19, 2008 - 12:59pm [Dine in]

i don't understand why this place is always so busy when the food is close to crap. i feel sorry for the servers busting their asses, while the kitchen puts out wack food. tempura fried sushi rolls? yes, to hide the fact that they're terrible. i think the lighting is purposely dark so you can't see how crappy your food is, or how dirty the tables, plates and cups are.. the one huge plus for this place is that there are so many beautiful people dining here. still don't understand why though.

no msg!
Submitted Saturday, June 7, 2008 - 7:09pm [Dine in]

the key selling point for trying this vietnamese restaurant was the "no msg" claim. eating asian in richmond with no msg??? definitely a must try, or clear alternative from the regular msg filled fare, 'cuz it's quite a challenge to make food at great standards without the monosodium glutamate. another added bonus is the use of organic vegetables. the subs were tasty, and the salad rolls are wicked good! the service is heavy on the sucky side due to the servers' lack of command of the english language, but as long as they get my order right and it comes in a reasonable time, i'm satified.

just keep walking.
Submitted Monday, June 2, 2008 - 2:32pm [Dine in]

just before the weekend lunch rush, we chose this place because they seemed to have a few more people already seated then other restaurants on the strip. drinks came quick (but with hardly any ice on a hot sunny day), but then the wait started. i guess some may enjoy the wait when you're seated on the patio as you get to people watch, but not so enjoyable when you have to keep feeding the parking meter and you're hungry. the food was decent, and that's a hell of a compliment. fish and chips was an obvious choice for one of the diners in our party, but the thick coat of batter on the fish was way too much. our server devoted all his time between a table of customers he knew, and to some bikini topped girls who couldn't figure out whether they wanted to cover-up with some blankets or show it off. it took 10 minutes to get our bill, and then another 10 minutes to get our change. thanks, but we'll walk passed this spot next time.

impressed.
Submitted Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 8:45am [Dine in]

i've visited this restaurant a couple of years ago and remember it not being anything special... things certainly have changed. the lack of a wating area doesn't give a very good first impression when you're trying to stay out of the rain and you're rubbing elbows with everyone else waiting for a table. but once you're finally seated and your dim sum arrives, the wait is quickly forgotten. there aren't any carts here, so no sitting and waiting for your favourite dish to come around, you simply order it off a list that's provided to you. i was impressed with the quality of the dim sum based on the location. the siu mai's were plump and not just made up of filler like some of the other dim sum places in the immediate area. i think we lucked out too, the server watching our area was really attentive and she was very sincere. i'll definitely be back.

baguettes
Submitted Thursday, May 8, 2008 - 11:01pm [Dine in]

the pho broth here isn't that great, there seems to be more oil than average. the vermicelli bowls are a good valued size. but the big sell out of this "baguette" deli is the vietnamese subs. thinly sliced cucumber, and the perfect amount of black pepper and magi does the body good. order subs ahead of time, 'cuz it sucks watiing in the not so spacious restaurant.

wires or noodles
Submitted Thursday, May 8, 2008 - 1:58am [Dine in]

maybe because i was eating there early before the lunch rush, but the noodles left much to be desired. the bbq pork was tasty, as well as the broth. the gyoza's were stuffed with goodness and not just mush. the inside is fine and definitely a lot more spacious than the downtown ramen places. would consider going back, but the noodles... the noodles.

...because i don't want more people filling up the restaurant. haven't really dipped too much into the hot food, but the sushi at this tiny place is great. my only gripe is that the last three times i was there, there's been a pesky fruit fly buzzing around.

Submitted Saturday, February 2, 2008 - 8:21pm [Dine in]

the staff at this locaiton are definitely not as helpful as the richmond location. the quality of the food is nothing to jump for joy about, it's a good bowl of wonton soup or congee when you need one.
