On On Wonton House5640 Kingsway, Burnaby
They Take Away 1 Oyster Each Time...
Submitted Sunday, April 10, 2011 - 6:22pm [Dine in]

Don't get me wrong, I loved On On. Whenever the boyfriend or friends wanna go for Chinese, I suggest On On, but the past few times there have left me very irritated.

The service is great: the waitresses are chatty, very attentive and very helpful. I didn't have to wait long at all for my water or tea refills even during the busiest hours of the day. The restaurant itself isn't like those fancy white-clothed Chinese restaurants. It's somewhat like an Asian food shack in the middle of nowhere, but then again, with food this cheap, who cares?

Yeah, so I said cheap. And it is cheap. $8.95 for their single person combos, meat dishes ranging from $6-10, noodles and rice dishes less than $10, you can't go wrong.

BUT, the more luxurious items (aka expensive/not worth it items) are pathetic. The reason why I loved On On to begin with was their deep fried oysters. The price was $13.50 for 9-10 oysters, and they were pretty big oysters. The second and third time I went there, I received 7 TINY oysters. When I brought this up with the manager, she suggested that these oysters were bigger than the past ones and that's why there's 7 and not 9. Yeah, right.

I ordered for take-out today and guess what? I only received 6 oysters and one chunk of deep fried batter. The price has gone up about half a dollar, too. I guess this is their way of inviting me back-- not gonna happen. I've loved On On for a few years now and I don't appreciate their suddenly going cheapo on the food. It doesn't even taste that great.

Needs Renovations!
Submitted Wednesday, February 23, 2011 - 3:07am [Dine in]

This restaurant is FAR too busy for the small space they have. The boyfriend & I decided to try this place with the recommendation from our mutual friends and the lack of decent food at Metrotown, and he left happy, but I wasn't.

The food is delicious- the sashimi is fresh, rolls are large and flavorful, pricing isn't all too bad, but what really irked me was the service. We were seated and a server didn't come back to our table for 10 minutes. We kept getting the "I'll be right there!" with a fantastic smile but it took a lot longer than "right" there. The food came out pretty fast, and eventually we needed water refills. Yep. More "Just a minute!"s which lasted a lot longer than a minute.

Although the food itself was great, the crowdedness, lack of privacy, lack of comfort and lack of service stopped me from coming back.

Best of all the "Top Gun" restaurants
Submitted Wednesday, February 23, 2011 - 3:02am [Dine in]

Of the 3 "Top Gun" ayce sushi restaurants (Kingsway Sushi in Burnaby, Top Gun Sushi in New West, and Richmond Sushi in Richmond), I found Richmond Sushi to be my favorite because of the far larger variation in dishes.

The food is fine; it meets the expectations I have for an ayce sushi restaurant, minus this: WHY are the bbq beef short ribs ALWAYS so salty? I've never had a problem with anything else, but it makes me wonder if the cooks are even looking at what they're making.

On occasion you'll get the grumpy older lady taking your order, and you can tell she REALLY hates working there. But otherwise, the service is FANTASTIC. The boss is really friendly, visits your table if he recognizes your face, and makes a lot of small talk. :)

I'm not a fan of Top Gun Group's pricing for their 3 restaurants-- $29.95 for a "deluxe" menu which includes a few more sashimi items, a few robata items and 4-5 more rolls that aren't on their $21.95 dinner menu, but I really don't think it's worth the money. HOWEVER, their Late Night menu is a total steal. I'm usually there during lunch or dinner, and I've done the Late Night menu once, and as far as I can remember, it was $11.95-$13.95. It mimicked the lunch menu plus a few dinner items, and for the price, you can't go wrong.

You Keep Coming Back for the Price...
Submitted Wednesday, February 23, 2011 - 2:50am [Dine in]

For $13.95 during Happy Hour, you can't really complain. You get most items a normal dinner menu would contain, minus the unlimited sashimi. You're limited to 6 per person, but again, for the price, why does it matter? At least you get a few pieces to satisfy your craving. Eat up on the rest of the menu. You get unlimited soft drinks with your sit-in as well.

The food itself is so-so. I rarely order rolls when I come here just because they're pre-made and often left dry and flavorless. However, the robata section of the menu is delicious. Their oyster motoyaki has a unique recipe- although very tasty, also very different from many other ayce restaurants I've been to.

The service is great... when it's busy during dinner and/or happy hour. You'll have servers coming back and forth to your table to remove empty plates. But when it's lunch time, expect to be waving your hand around trying to find a waitress who will notice you.

Overall, I always leave this restaurant happy. I definitely recommend coming here during their Happy Hour or dinner, not so much during lunch, though. :)
