Bad Service, Have Yet to Try Food
Submitted Saturday, May 19, 2012 - 11:18pm [Dine in]

Poor service on a slow Saturday night. Eight of us came here for after-dinner drinks, each of which came five minutes apart. That's pretty slow service even if the restaurant were busy. A waiter took our order and the waitress who brought the drinks barely knew what she was serving us, which caused confusion over who ordered what. My friend found the passion fruit with mango stars too sweet. The waiter offered to remake it but she settled for a glas of water to dilute it. Another friend ordered pearls in his drink but got coconut jelly. He was nice about it, so the waitress didn't offer to correct it. Finally, my drink still hadn't come after over 30 minutes. Because the waiters seemed to be socializing, I called for them across the room and told them it had been a long time. My drink was quickly served without an apology. I'm sure they forgot because there were just 4 other small tables being served. We left a $2.00 tip on a $37.00 bill, but I'm sure the message is lost on the staff. Might be back to try to food, which seems like good value. This experience at this location is definitely not as good ad the Granville store. There, they are at least efficient.

What Was My Mom Talking About?
Submitted Sunday, October 24, 2010 - 7:26pm [Dine in]

I preferred this restaurant when it used to be just a regular noodle house that didn't advertise anything fancy. As Fusion Cafe, the short fat man who owns it is over-promising a trendy atomosphere with a cool menu. What we found were two confusing menus that were poorly categorized plus two or three promotional and specialty menus that didn't seem to offer any great values. The messy menus alone will keep me from returning. "Dr." Jamie Chan under-delivered by taking over an existing business with rundown furniture and dirty floors. I don't expect much from Chinese restaurants, but the condition of this one wasn't the impression I got from the commercials. To be fair, my parents like this place. I don't get it!

Hubby and I shared the pan fried "sa cha" beef ho fun and the minute steak on spaghetti, which included a drink with each item. The friend noodles didn't taste of sa cha at all and needed more salt, so I don't recommend it. The minute steak was pretty good because both meat and noodles were covered with a black pepper sauce that tasted just like black pepper. The steak was pretty rare and tender enough, which is how we like it. One problem for other non-Chinese reading customers is that the menu only lists this item as "minute steak" with spaghetti and makes no mention of the black pepper sauce. How are English-only customers supposed to know it's going to be covered in sauce?

Hot and cold drinks were served in double-walled metal mugs that were initially too hot to sip from. I had the HK style milk tea with less milk, which was served the way I requested. There was no soy sauce or chili sauce that's typically available at Chinese restaurants. Eat here if there's nothing else and you're in the area, but the parking disaster is not worth it.

No Barfing, But No Raving Either
Submitted Friday, July 16, 2010 - 12:44am [Dine in]

I will never go to Daimasu again, knowing that there are other poor quality sushi joints out there serving the same crap for all-you-can-eat. We ordered the $48.00 nigiri and roll sushi platter with about 50 pieces and was only given enough wasabe for about 3 people. One of the prawn nigiri sushi pieces had to be sent back because it was covered in white, oozy, pussy liquid, unlike the other two pieces that looked more fresh. My brother could feel every drop of moisture from the thawed tuna sashimi, and Mr. Daisycloud at a piece of tough and stringy salmon sashimi. Imagine that for a restaurant that claims it serves fine Japanese cuisine!

The beef sashimi looked gross but tasted great with the ponzu sauce. The ebi sunomono was hard, like it had been sitting in the fridge for days. The specialty rolls really are special, but don't bother with the regular sushi and sashimi.

No Future Cravings for Food from Here
Submitted Saturday, June 6, 2009 - 10:19pm [Dine in]

This is probably the nicest Shanghai restaurant I've seen aside from Shanghai River. If you're looking for a meal that will satisfy your hunger, sure, go here! But if you're looking for quality Shanghai food, go across the street to Top Shanghai.

Siu Long Bau - small with very thin wrappers, but juicy enough for their size
Siu Mai - not dim sum-quality, so I don't recommend
Ja Jeung Mein (Minced Pork Noodles?) - tasteless! Go to Chen's Restaurant for an excellent verson
Vegetable Dumplings - simple and healthy, but not too tasty
Hot and Sour Soup - very nice sour taste, but just too peppery because there is coursely ground pepper in it. I was very bothered by the pepper but I'd eat it again, just not on a day I'm feeling grouchy!
Beef Roll (?) - this was my favourite of the bunch because the meat was very flavourful and saucy, and there were plenty of veggies in the roll. It was the first time I had ever eaten this with a wrapper that seems like it's been fried, which enhanced the deliciousness!

Other reviewers where right about the washroom...disgusting! At first glance it LOOKS clean and it seems like they had the intention of renovating it nicely, but it's just not right to put the mop and bucket in such a cramped space.

Although I enjoyed about 2/6 dishes, I'd only come back here if my friends really wanted to. Hope things change in the future!

Pefect Place for Cozy Lunch
Submitted Wednesday, December 17, 2008 - 4:26pm [Dine in]

This was one of my most enjoyable dining experiences because the restaurant was clean and cozy and the food was tasty and hearty. My friend and I had lunch on a rare snowy day and Burgoo's little wooden structure with the cute windows was the perfect place to watch the falling snow. The service was great and the food did not disappoint us. Two of us shared the Hungarian Goulash, the Fondumental fondue (gruyere + emmenthal), and the grilled cheese + soup. It was way too much food for us, but we couldn't resist!

The goulash was rich and mealy, with just the right amount of spices. The dumplings in the goulash were especially fun to eat! The grilled cheese was cheesy and sharp. But, be warned of the greasiness! The butternut squash soup was so sweet that it overpowered the sandwich when I dipped it in, but good nevertheless. The fondue was awesome too! We could have made a meal out of that, but we had to stop!

We took most of the goulash home. Each sandwich order comes with two sandwiches, so my friend took half her sandwich and the rest of the soup home. It was sad, but we had to leave some of the fondue behind.

The only thing to be careful of is that Burgoo serves in courses. They would have waited for us to finish our fondue before serving the other two courses if we hadn't asked for them to bring them as they were prepared.

You must try this restaurant!

My Favourite!
Submitted Tuesday, June 19, 2007 - 11:07am [Dine in]

My go-to restaurant, especially for a quick+easy brunch on Sundays! You can always count on decent service and decent food.

My boyfriend and I agree that breakfast here is WAY better than Denny's for the same price! Healthier food and a relaxed, yuppy atmosphere.

I always go back for the brunch menu and their elk burger. They had to substitute a kangaroo burger once, but it was equally delicious! Not super-duper food, but it's a unique menu and well-prepared. We just LOVE their bread + butter basket! Haven't been disappointed with their food yet!

Not Impressed but Can't Beat the Price!
Submitted Tuesday, June 19, 2007 - 10:35am [Dine in]

Not a pleasant experience, especially when you don't have much time to spare. Its redeeming qualities are the UNBELIEVABLY CHEAP prices and the not-bad food. 3 of us went on a Saturday night.

Miso soup came right away, but 2 of us waited 30 minutes for food, while the 3rd one waited 45 min. We also noticed one takeout customer waited over 30 min, and another waited close to 45 min.

Although we asked, the waitresses didn't bring the right utensils. Poor attitude and not attentive. Eventually there were 6 tables, but only 2 waitresses. Very disorganized and didn't prioritize. Took orders but started helping other customers so didn't submit orders to kitchen right away.

$8 for teriyaki choice, rice, salad, miso, and choice of 3 specialty items. Great value! Except the lemongrass chicken was just boiled chicken. Blech!
