BT Cafe920 Kingsway, Vancouver
Consistently good HK Cafe style food
Submitted Friday, August 17, 2012 - 11:17am [Dine in]

Been here many times, last time being this past Wednesday night, didn't know there wasn't a review yet!
It's like a small hole in the wall, but ever since I've been coming here, I've boycotted Honolulu Cafe. The set menu items are $6.95 or $7.50 and to add a drink is another $1.00. Two of us usually come out full at $20 including tax and tip. Food is very good!
Restuarant is pretty clean, as compared to Honolulu, and usually it's a packed house at dinner time. Go early or later!

Terrible dining experience!

Okay, where to start! Went there on a Thursday evening with my girlfriend, as we had been there before and it was nice. Not this time! Waitress that screwed up our order, and we had to wait a very long time for any food to arrive to our table. Had to ask the waitress twice for some soya sauce!
Not only that, I did not get any ebi sunomono that was suppose to be included with my combo. We asked about it, and only then did a waitress tell me that they ran out! How does a Japanese restuarant run out of ebi sunomono?!? By then, I had eaten my sushi (which was sub par). The sushi rice was also undercooked, so yes, there were hard bits of rice.
Also, my girlfriend order salmon sashimni. You would think that this would come quickly, as it's just 3 pcs of raw salmon. Nope, took forever to come, and they served the same dish to another table that had been seated after us! Unbelievable!
Definately will not be back! Bad service, bad food, overall bad experience! Plenty of other sushi restuarants in the area.

Really loud ambiance, and food is lacking.

My 1st time there and I had heard some good/bad things about the restuarant. We had a reservation, as our party was 12 people, but we still had to wait after arriving on time. We were seated upstairs after a while. A few people in our group had been there before, and said it's hit or miss. They gave us this risotto sampler dish (to each of us) and everyone in our party said it was undercooked! Didn't the chef try a spoonful before serving it? I ordered the roast chicken penne as my entree, and again, my pasta was undercooked! Sure, I like my pasta al dente with a little bit of a bite, but this was just plainly undercooked. I was not impressed at all.
I would not take a date there, unless you're both into sign language. It is loud inside and you have to raise your voices to each other to be heard!
Another thing, larger parties (more than 8) are automatically charged 18% gratuity, just a reminder if you're going in a large party.
And one last thing, why do restuarants use such LARGE menus?!? I mean physically large! Our server had to come back 3 times to take our entire order, because he could not handle all the menus at once. Make it easier on the patrons (& the server) by having a reasonable sized menu! After I selected what I wanted to eat, I had to leave the menu on the floor against my chair. Sorry, just a peeve of mine.

Food okay, service not

We (my gf and I) went there last night to meet up with another couple for dinner. When we showed up, there was another party of 3 ahead of us, which is fine. Another couple walked in after us, and stood in front of the party of 3. A little while later, the hostess finally acknowledges all of us waiting for a table, comes over and proceeds to seat the couple who came in after us! Both the party ahead of us, and myself, told the hostess that we were here before them...but she just stared at us blankly and proceeded to seat them! No, they didn't have a reservation. That was just rude, not only of the hostess, but the couple as well. I did not see a manager so I couldn't talk to him/her about what just happened. We were finally seated, and I was seated right next to the couple who butted ahead of us. Not once did he look me in the eye, full well knowing what they did!
Food wise, was okay. I had spaghetti and meatballs, the gf had a chicken burger, but presentation did not resemble a burger in any way. It was a chicken breast covered with gravy and mushrooms atop a piece of garlic bread with salad and fries on the side. The other couple we were with both had pizza's.
Probably won't be back again, as the service and what happened to us there really irked me.

Ikkyu Ramen Ten6929 Victoria Drive, Vancouver
Mom & Pop japanese food..made by a Chinese couple
Submitted Tuesday, January 12, 2010 - 12:06am [Dine in]

I use to go here quite often when it first opened a few years ago, but it has changed hands to a new couple who runs this little hole in the wall down Victoria Drive near 54th Avenue. They do try to imitate other restuarants by providing some fancy fusion rolls and such, but I usually order the bowl of Ramen or Udon. It's pretty consistent, not the best ramen in town, but definately not the worst. I'd go eat there if you're in that part of town for some reason, but remember, it's a tiny little place and last time I went, it was CASH ONLY.

A group of 7 of us reserved a table for 7:30pm and were seated promptly. Restaurant was not full at all. After we got our drinks, it took a long while to place our dinner orders. And then we waited, and waited and waited! We don't know why it took so long, but we didn't get our meals till around 9pm! Again, the place was not full at all! Service is rated poor, the waitress did not come back to check with us to ask us about the food, or come back to fill our water glasses.
When we got our food, it wasn't piping hot, so why did we have to wait so long for this? And the one person who ordered a salad with chicken(in order to avoid the fried foods), the cheese and chicken were fried on it! So much for trying to eat healthy! Quality of food was just so-so. 5 out of the 7 of us, did not finish our plates, not because we weren't hungry (we were starving at this point), but because the food wasn't all that good!
Groups of 6 or more are required to pay gratuity of 17%. Needless to say, we didn't feel that 17% was deserved. We will not be back again.
