Wow, just browsing through the site I found the restaurant. I never even thought about submitting a review for this place eventhough I've been going to it for years.
The food is great, pricing is great, service is great too!
My favorite dish is the Dai Ching Chicken, followed by the Minced Meat with Tofu on rice. I have a couple of friends that are beef lovers and they rave about the Ginger Beef.
If you're in the area for lunch you should definitely pay this place a visit; trust me you will love it!

My friend and I are big fans of Thai food and decided to try this new restaurant in South Granville. The unanimous decision from both of us was that we will never visit this place again; unless maybe the management and kitchen team changes.
At first sight the place looked fine, the decor in the place makes it look more like an upscale restaurant...at first sight.
The server was friendly and we were guessing she may be the owner. The menu looked good and prices were reasonable.
We ordered a Grilled Chicken green papaya salad, and my friend ordered the tasting menu just for fun.
It took about 20 minutes for our food to arrive.
The salad was a few slices of bland grilled chicken with maybe less than a handful of red leaf lettuce, and a nice portion of coconut rice. The rice was great, the green papaya not that great.
The Tom Yam soup was very sweet, where the taste should be sweet and sour.
The pad thai was decent and probably the best dish of everything we had.
The green chicken curry tasted like can soup.
If you are looking for a good Thai restaurant in town this is not it. My favorite Thai restaurant is still is the Chili House Thai Bistro on Beach Avenue. I've tried so many others but still this remains in the top spot.

I've been to this place three times and I figure it was time to write them a review. I love the food, the service, and the ambiance. The food is priced just right I guess.
My favorites are the Sashimi Salad and the Ebi-Mayo, these can be enjoyed with a bottle of hot sake to bring out the flavours.
If you like high end whisky, Kingyo has one of the best in the world, ask for "Hibiki". I was introduced to this whisky during one of my trips to Japan and just love it.
Kingyo is typically busy but I find the best place to sit at is the bar because the servers are right there and you can have great insights and conversation from them.

A friend of mine invited me to this restaurant telling me it's the real Korean experience of eating out. "Pojang Macha" actually refers to the street vendors that you find in any city in Korea selling food and alcoholic beverages in tents right on the sidewalks.
I was hesitant at first but after leaving the place I just couldn't wait to go back again. The food is very tasty and the feeling was like being in Korea enjoying delicious food in some Seoul street sidewalk. My favorites were the "boiled pork": a very tender meat that you can mix with lettuce and kimchi; and the "spicy squid": if you like spicy food you'll love this!
Service was great as the owner came to greet us and made sure we were being served and were enjoying our night. Alcoholic beverages were price reasonably well, I'd recommend "Hite" beer, or "Soju" a sake-like Korean beverage.
