Capilano Sushi1240 Marine Drive, North Vancouver
A great sushi fix!
Submitted Monday, May 11, 2009 - 12:44pm [Dine in]

This place is nothing special, but it is a bargain and overall very tasty. My Japanese wife says it's quite far from authentic, but she always enjoys the meal.

It's close to home and the take-out is ready fast. It's less costly than fast food and far superior in quality. A whopper meal is priced similarly, but always upsets my stomach and feels hazardous to the health!

As for service, it's okay - there seems to be new staff and language limitations may make some appear rude. They seem to give it an honest effort and big tips are not really expected.

This place is not in a high-traffic area and is reliable and good! Also worth mentioning - their selection of Japanese beers are also well-priced! Asahi, Sapporo, and Kirin - all delicious!!

Repeat: hai!

Capilano Heights Chinese Restaurant5020 Capilano Road, North Vancouver
Don't go at peak times!
Submitted Monday, May 11, 2009 - 12:23pm [Dine in]

This Chinese restaurant is ideally located in a beautifully forested area of upper Capilano. It is a stone's throw from the scenic Cleveland Dam and a short drive down from Grouse Mountain.

The food is dependable and not as affordable as they seem to believe. There is a premium of 20-30% over most other Chinese restaurants, likely due to the location. There are a lot of regular clients and many of them are seniors - I myself have been dining there on and off for over 20 years!

The worst thing about the dining experience is the service quality. They are so hurried all the time that the servers are walking away as they place your order on the table!

At busy times, they want to process your table as quickly as possible and the place is very noisy with clanging dishes and lively conversations taking place. It is rarely a romantic or quiet dining experience!

The servers also often speak very quickly with a heavy accent - my Japanese ESL wife usually has a very hard time understanding them.

However, I keep coming back (infrequently, though) to this place, but it's mainly for the dependable food and locale. It's best to call ahead for take-out and picnic at the gorgeous park across the street!
