Akasaka Japanese Restaurant15110 101st Avenue, Surrey
Mother's Day Dinner - BAD EXPERIENCE
Submitted Monday, May 14, 2012 - 10:46am [Dine in]

For Mother's Day, we had reservations for a large group (over 10) and arrived on time. There seemed to be confusion with the number of people we said we had and took some time to sort out. I think they were trying to put us into a smaller table. Got seated and it took literally 5-10mins for tea to arrive. It wasn't overly busy at that time but we knew that it would get busy soon and that the true measure of a good restaurant is how they handle crowds. Let me tell you, this restaurant FAILED!

Because we had 3 families at the table, various orders were put through. Pretty pricey compared to other well known Japanese restaurants. Some had dinner combos (sushi, chicken, gyozas, tempura) and then some ordered bento boxes and appies. It was odd that the sushi came out lightning quick. I'm guessing that all the sushi was pre-made ahead of time - efficient but is it really fresh? The food tasted pretty good. The big concern was that although the sushi boats, appies and even the chicken terriyaki came, where were the other dinners for the ones that ordered the boxes? We asked about 3 times and were told that the restaurant was very busy. Ok, thanks. But, don't you normally try to serve everyone food at the same time and NOT 30mins in between? Most of the food was already finished while some were just wanting some food. Even those that ordered the dinner combos had to wait for their tempura (which came after the main dish of chicken terriyaki).

So, the experience receiving the food wasn't great. Too bad because the food was actually decent.

THAT wasn't the bad part. About 1hr 15mins from when we sat down, waiting for our tea, waiting for all the food to arrive, the bill was dropped on our table. Also, waiting numerous times to get tea re-filled too. I think that the people who had the bento dinners, they only got 20mins of eating time! There was no asking for drink orders and no mention about ordering dessert. It was basically, GET OUT because our next reservations were arriving soon. It literally came out of the lady's (assuming Manager/Owner) mouth that they needed the table for the next reservation.

SO.... thank you for a delicious meal but cruddy and rude service. WE WILL NOT RETURN and take our business to places that appreciate people.

Ninkazu Japanese Restaurant4231 Hazelbridge Way, #205, Richmond
Best Place in Richmond (So Far!)
Submitted Wednesday, October 28, 2009 - 2:35pm [Dine in]

One of the best places in Richmond that I have found so far. Price is $12.95 for their late night menu.

Food: Pretty decent quality food for AYCE. The only issue is that they limit you on your sashimi (2 orders per person - 6 pieces in total).

Service: Pretty quick service. I haven't had many "missed" orders that you find typically in AYCE places. Tea always comes quickly and often.

Would come back again!

Red Chicken Korean Restaurant833 Bute St, Vancouver
Best Korean Restaurant Downtown
Submitted Wednesday, October 28, 2009 - 2:24pm [Dine in]

The food is pretty decent at this place. I have been coming to this restaurant for several months and will keep on coming back. They have lunch specials which are priced between $7-$9. Most lunches will come with either rice or soup and the usual kimchi dishes.

Service is pretty quick and if it isn't, you have a button at each table that you can press to call a waitress. Pretty neat!

Toyama757 Seymour Street, Vancouver
Good AYCE Downtown
Submitted Wednesday, October 28, 2009 - 2:20pm [Dine in]

Went to this place last week for the first time and loved the food. You don't get sashimi in the $11.95 all you can eat price but it's definitely worth it. Sashimi is an extra $1 for every 6 pieces.

The chopped scallop rolls were awesome as they had big chunks of scallop in it and the rice wasn't overbearing.

Not a fan of their skewers because they tasted a bit water logged - but overall, their other BBQ stuff was decent.

Service was ok as we didn't have to wait long for stuff.

I would definitely go there again and consider this place better than Shabusen (unless you want alot of sashimi)
