I'm quite saddened by how poor of a rating this place is recieving! Firstly, no matter how busy the 2 servers that are always there ( A guy who I think is from Elsalvador? and a young lady from Europe maybe?) are amazing! they are constantly cleaning, serving, clearing plates from tables and asking how the food is. I realize its an AYCE but these kids are incredible. As soon as we're sat they ask if you have questions offer drinks and bring you a jug of water to your already set table. The view from this place is awesome, you can see across the water to Harbour Center, and all the way over to what I believe to be Burnaby. The food is fresh, hot, abundant and delicious. I'm a stickler for good naan, and man do they deliver! Their salads are fresh and the tomatoe salad can only be described as delicious. The variety is nice. The only thing I'm not so keen on is the price for the dinner, lunch at 12$ is a better deal, take a late lunch here and have a light salad for supper and its money well spent, in my opinion. The cooks who restock the food will ask how you like it , or at least smile and say hello.
Definatly a must try if you have a hankering for some quick but great indian food. The only suggestion I have is to take transit or be prepared to hoof it a bit as parking around there can be difficult, expensive or just plain old non existant. But the long walk is needed after overstuffing oneself on some Indian soul food!

Great place for Value, and great sushi, just don't expect great service.

My husband and I frequent Sun, the sushi is delicious and their prices are great, especially for newlyweds. Thier portions are generous and they are usually pretty speedy. The service is usually decent at best, having to practically beg for a glass of water on many occasions is quite frustrating, maybe it is a cultural thing? Another thing that irks me, and it could just be that I grew up in a small town where staff knows your name, but we've been there at LEAST 10 times in the last 3 months (yeah, its that good) and the 2 waitresses that have always helped us don't even try to acknowledge that we've been there before, we're the epitomy of repeat clients and get no warm and fuzzies at all.
With that said, the place has a very casual ambiance and they don't rush you through your meal, so we can stay and chit chat as long as we want. The food comes quite quickly, a little sporraticly (ie the main meal before the soup and sunomono) but quickly, the food itself is incredible, the place is clean and up to date, there is adequate parking (and its right across from a bus stop), and bang for your buck is second to none. This is definately our go to staple for sushi on a budget. It's also really close to UBC, so students should be impressed too.
