Quite Hapa with Sugi
Submitted Wednesday, May 17, 2006 - 12:23pm [Dine in]

No windows, no signage? I thought it was an exclusive gay bar - NOT. It is where the chef from Hapa Izakaya is now laying his hat. Very small space but cleverly darkened to feel more ambiance. The food is along the Izakaya lines but I think his 1st efforts for Hapa were still his best. The limited menu has a little too much fried stuff on offer, but all very tasty. The chef / owners' ego has been dented a little and now places a menu outside which contradicted his "I am a great chef and the people will find me" attitude. But overall a good place to try, not expensive and very flavourful food. In fact writing this review I may go back tonight!

I can only tell you from memory how good this place was before it closed. I had my first date there and we are still together 10 years later. Oh, what fond memories. Where is the owner Micheal now. Its amazing how the chef always used to use "peanut butter" in her desserts as aparently she was a member of the "Reese's peanut butter" family!

A regular lunch time spot for my friends and I. We don't mind waiting as we know the food will be great and the portions huge. Yes, we have tried over 20 other sushi places in town. Yes, we have tried to find a better deal on the Bento boxes. Yes, we have tried to ween ourselves off the great sushi & Sashimi served but failed. The Californian's are a must as too is the Chicken teryaki roll. The food is always fresh as the turnover is amazing in this place. Line-ups are the norm and the restarant wins numerous awards - for good reason!

Mushy Peas Ahoy

If you have any English blood in you and you have not been here GO! If you have never been to England, not interested in steak and kidney pies and alike you are not likely going to reminisce about the old country - then try it - you will save money on the flight! The owner "Stella" is fab. Stella by name and Stellar by nature. She does kick up a wicked fish & chips, mixed grill and that lovely greasy "full English breakfast" complete with fried bread mmmmmmmmmmmm.

No Go Platters
Submitted Sunday, December 18, 2005 - 11:20am [Dine in]

It was Saturday night, friends arrived and decided instead of eating in we would "Entertainment Coupon" it. Second page in the fine dining section was the Pacific Crab Co. Great, made reservations and along we went. It is upstairs in well appointed space overlooking English Bay. We were shown to our table and sat down and waited and waited and waited. Our server eventually showed up and asked us what we wanted to drink. We asked do they have a drinks menu? You mean you don't have a drinks menu came the reply. Correct neither do we have a dinner menu. With that she ran off to get all the menus we needed. To cut a long story short we had some so, so platter, an extra crab and a 1/2 lobster. We had to place the empty shells on the table as no shell plates were offered. No water or bread offered or arrived. Two plates were taken away before they were really finished with. We had to ask for finger bowls but the real cruncher came when we each gave them our "Entertainment card" and were told that only one card per table was allowed. We were not in the mood for arguing as sometimes the small print is overlooked. When we got back we studied the book. There are no rules stating this on their page and in the small print in the back of the book it states you are able to have up to 3 coupon / card per table for 6 persons or more. Our bill (no starters or dessert inc tip inc coupon) was $160.00. It will be the last time they get my money. Forewarned is forearmed!!

We have been meaning to go here since it changed from Delilahs. I am too full up to really write a review but I can assure you that value for money, taste for taste, and service to service it is pretty hard to beat. Such perfect service and what a deal. A 3 course meal of this calibre for $45 p.p. I started with the Fois Gras pate style with toast (+$2), my partner the Jerusalem artichoke soup, followed by the Deep sea cod encrusted with prawns and my partner the Venison medallions and finished off with the creme brulee and the sticky toffee pudding. Each plate was shared 50/50 and if it wasn't a fight would of broken the good ambience in the place. The lights could be lowered a tad but thats being a little to critical of a place and menu that has been well thought out and executed. Go here you will NOT be dissapointed.

Been meaning to go here for a while and was not too disappointed. The noise level was perfect and the atmosphere was tingling. We decided to start with a spider roll and clam chowder followed by the Ling Cod w/mussels and black rice and my partner the tuna. The soup was only OK and still not sure if there were clams in there. The spider roll at $17 was good but not exceptional. The starters were soon to be forgotten as the mains arrived. Nice presentation and both perfectly cooked. Loved "em both. We shared a creamy nutty desert which polished off the evening nicely. Not a place to go unless you have a min of $250 for 2 including tip to go splurge and many seem to have, as it was a full house on a Wednesday!!

For Ducks Sake
Submitted Sunday, December 11, 2005 - 4:14pm [Dine in]

We managed to cram a dozen friends in this small restaurant for a night of duck, duck and more duck - served with potato, cherry compote and apples mmmmmm. Crispy on the outside, and juicy on the inside it may of been the best duck I have had and I have had my fair share of duck in my lifetime. We also tried some schnitzel which was also excellent. The service was attentive and friendly. They could do with lowering the lighting as it is a little bright in there but overall a good little spot and great value for money. Pre order the duck if you go, so not to be dissappointed!!

This being my fourth or fith time back I expected the great food and service that my hard earned dollars usually buy - Was I in for a shock! The baked mussels to start were so-so. I was thinking "I hope my main makes up for these" It didn't. The modest portion of Smoked Black Alaskan Cod was served cold / luke warm to the touch. After sitting there waiting for eternity for someone to come and ask "How is everything" I gave up. No, the restaurant wasn't busy and even if it was it is no excuse. I managed to contain myself by just vowing not to go back and chewing back the $40 bucks worth of fish. I did fill out the comment card and just received a $25 voucher! After spending $200/2 in total I feel they may of just slapped me in the face.
Oh by the way, my wifes dinner was just O.K. - You may as well go to Carderos / Sand Bar, save some money and have a great time!!

Still one of my favourite restaurants in the city. I thought with doubling its size it would half its appeal.......think again its still a great place to go. If its your 1st time there these treats should NOT be missed. The prawns with spicy mayo, the boneless chicken legs, the spinach salad, the rice dish in the hot bowl (ishi yaki?) and the sable fish which has responsibly replaced the sea bass that was previously served. Justin the owner runs a "tight ship", choosing attentive staff and offers great value for money.
