Taiko on Denman689 Denman Street, Vancouver
Good Food + Good Service = Will Return
Submitted Thursday, April 28, 2011 - 5:57pm [Dine in]

I came to Taiko for lunch with my family today and was impressed. For $13.95 per adult before tax, we got good food, good service, and nice ambiance.

The menu is a good size. The food was also good, but nothing was exceptional. Some of the things I like are the: Salmon Sashimi, Masago Sushi, Chopped Scallop Roll and Deep Fried Squid (Ika). I found the tempura to be only okay. The Seafood Motoyaki was a bit strange; I didn't try it myself, but my dad only found one piece of shrimp buried in the sauce in his ...

Everything came satisfyingly quickly. As a matter of fact, the miso soup came less than a minute after we handed in our order sheet and the sashimi came before I was done with my miso soup.

Like with most AYCE places, some of the things we didn't order ended up at our table and some of the things we did order never made it. This restaurant is no exception. However I didn't find it to be a big deal since 95% of our order was right.

Tables and chairs were not cramped and I like the huge windows even though the view wasn't spectacular.

Service was friendly. We were even reminded about dessert when we asked for the bill. Dessert is included in the all you can eat menu. We had the Red Bean Pudding which was white jelly with a layer of red beans on top. It tasted alright.

For sashimi lovers out there, note that there is a "6 pieces of sashimi per adult" limit and all you can eat for kids does not include sashimi at all. I really like sashimi myself and this was disappointing. However, I would still return since this AYCE beats most of the other ones I've been to by a long shot.

Samurai Sushi on Fraser6428 Fraser Street, Vancouver
Keep Coming Back for Massive Rolls
Submitted Wednesday, April 27, 2011 - 4:35am [Dine in]

I get sushi from different places, so I always forget how big Samurai's sushi is. They're massive. For the typical prices at other sushi restaurants, Samurai provides bigger portions. There is hockey-puck sized pieces of rolls like the: Dynamite Roll, Alaska Roll, California Roll, etc. There is also huge chunks of sashimi. However, rolls like the Salmon Maki and Tekka Maki are average size.

I am no sushi expert, but I think everything tastes pretty good, even though their sushi is definitely not the best or the most authentic. If you mind is on sushi and your concern is quantity, then stop by.

Not the Place for Sushi Lovers
Submitted Wednesday, April 27, 2011 - 3:26am [Dine in]

My friends and I had the all you can eat. We ordered just about everything on the all you can eat menu and the food came pretty quickly.

If all you want is BBQ meat then this place is decent. However, I was craving sushi tonight and was greatly disappointed. The salmon maki roll came to us warm and the sushi rice had a funny taste to it. The seafood pancake was a bit greasy but tasted alright.

On the plus side, we had a good server. We ordered a bit more than we could handle and when she brought the food to our table, she simply took it back when we told her.

A Bit Pricey
Submitted Tuesday, August 10, 2010 - 1:00am [Dine in]

I've been lured here many times by their yummy skewers. They're about $2 each, and there's a fair variety. It does take a heavier bill to fill your tummy, as the dishes are pricey for their portions.

When you're seated, you get a towel to wipe your hands with. The servers are usually very friendly. Despite staying till closing one night, we were not rushed at all.

It's a gorgeous restaurant. The lighting, decor, and music definitely adds to the fancy atmosphere.The washroom comes with mouthwash - although I've never used it myself.

A word of advice: reserve a table if you plan to come here around dinnertime or you will probably have to wait for seats.

Samurai Sushi House5888 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Good Value, Fresh Salmon
Submitted Monday, August 9, 2010 - 11:53pm [Dine in]

I came here with my friend for lunch. I ordered the Salmon Don. It cost about $10 with taxes, and boy was it worth it. There were nine very generous portioned pieces of sashimi on my rice and they tasted very fresh.

The food came in about 5 minutes, and the staff were pretty attentive.

It's a shame that the place isn't bigger. We were thinking about eating in for lunch, but the amount of seating turned us away. On the plus size, the location is convenient - just a quick walk from the Canada Line.
