My girl took me there for Valentine's Day dinner. She takes care of Valentine's and usually takes me to a "swank" place. When we went there we had no clue whatto expect.
The seats were not comfortable. and packed very tight to other tables.
WE were seated near the kitchen, at first we were disappointed, but turned out to be a good thing. I liked to see the various dishes that were leaving the kitchen and many times I got to see plates that I normally would not order.
I cannot remember what we ordered (ceviche, creme brule and two other things) but it is the first time in a long time that we both enjoyed everything. I went and thanked the kitchen and they were pleased to hear such a thing.
Definitely check it out.

Have gone there twice now (for me to go to a Sushi place more than once something is going well).
The place is very cold and very loud and open. However when we go there for all you can eat sushi, none of that really matter. I thought the portions were good (we ordered too much and were stuffed). The food was very consistent.
You take your own order by filling out a piece of paper which is ok, however they do not bring you back another piece of paper in case you want more. Not sure as if the policy is you only order once.
One of only 2 sushi places on the North Shore for me.

Went there for the second time. Wanted to give it a retry. There was live music and the place was full. I really liked the atmosphere today. The waitress was quick to great us and sit us down.
Service was good but then it got very busy and it took about 30 minutes to get our food. Our food was good. We had the Pollo Mexicano (nice and spicy), Juevo Rancheros (great refried beans) and basic eggs, potatoes and sausage. The only complaint we had was the toast was burnt. The waitress quickly took it back and brought us new pieces. For presentation purposes, it would have been nice to receive the order and then have the waitress say on her own that the bread was burnt and she'll bring back the toast in a moment.
Definitely an improvement since the first time we went there.

I like the looks of this place. Good staff and good vibe. Our server did a good job to make sure we had what we needed. I had a martini (Manhattan) and it was a small quantity. The taste was good, but half the serving at similar restaurants. My girlfriend had a mojito that had too much ice and not enough juice.
The food was good but too small and pricey. 4 prawns cost you $14. After a $90 bill and still hungry we decided to go home and eat some more.
I recommend it only for drinks and tapas (expect to pay a pretty penny though)

Korean friend of mine who was visiting Vancouver for just over 1 year said this is by far the best Korean place in all of Vancouver. He went to many places in Burnaby, Vancouver and Coquitlam. Food is ok, but I don't know what Great Korean food should taste like. I'm always curious, did we get preferential treatment because he spoke to them in Korean?
