Prepare to leave with a lighter wallet.

The food was primarly finger food to share. popcorn shrimp and such which is delicious but over priced. Nonetheless, it's all about the alcohol. I find it easier to down a shot of 151 at Coco Rico than it is at a party and I really don't have a clue why. They have an extensive list of drinks and many of which are quite appealing. From bitch drinks like the Malibouish ones to the manly birthday favourites like the Flaming Lambourghini.

Service is always outstanding and quick to order. Very friendly and optimistic.

As for ambiance, it's a nice and dim atmosphere and is only nice after you get hammered because it's quite a small and dense place. However, feels better when it's completely jam packed.

Overall, as with it's extensive drink menu, comes its extensive menu prices. Expect your bill to cost a few bills if you plan to have a birthday party there.

Freakin' expensive.

The food isn't at all worth the price. 4 dishes ended up to be $90 with the standard 10% tip which they deserved 5 at best.
The duck was dry and so salty that it could probably make you go blind if it got in your eye. The vegetables were well made along with the other vegetable related dish that we got. The crab was huge, however, it was on the borderline of my crab standards.

Service was horrible. Lucky for us, we decided to order take out and eat it at home so we called 20-30 minutes ahead of time to order and inform them that we will come to pick it up despite their free delivery. So 20 minutes after calling we went to go grab the food but when we got there (Which took 10 minutes) they asked us to come back in 5 minutes because it wasn't ready yet. No biggie so we walked around and came back in 3. When we came back, it was another 10 minutes till they finished packing it in the containers. Along with that, the woman had an unfriendly glare in her face as she was probably mad that we came back too soon and assumed we were getting impatient. However, the youngest son of their staff was very polite and made up for his rude mother.

The ambiance in VIP's Kitchen is like an average Chinatown restaurant with limited seats and a ball of flies circling an area. The atmosphere is not somewhere you'd want to go for a family dinner.

Overall, I don't recommend this place for dine-in And if you want to take out, order for delivery.

Maybe I love this place because I don't go here very much. (it's too far from where I live) But the times I do go, I've never been let down in terms of taste. I usually order a Pho Dac Biet (All kinds of meat in noodle soup) or Pho Bo Vien (Beef ball noodle soup) because I eat rice at home everyday. The soup base is always tastier than the majority of Pho restaurants that I've been to. (And I've been to quite a few as my girlfriend is Pho-natic. lol)
The Vietnamese coffee also tatses great.. Perfect for a nuke of caffiene to start off the day, or to stop it from ending.

The service isn't the best as some of the hoochie-mama Vietnamese waitresses seem a bit snobby.

The ambiance in there is nice, the mirrors on both walls make it seem bigger, more busy and the TV helps burn some time as you wait for your food. The ceilings are vibrantly lit with neon coloured lights to add to the urban-styled nightlife theme.
I would give it a 3.5 is there was an option to do so.

Overall, great place to go at night. Definately beats Pho Hoa hands down.. the worst tasting most bland, over rated pho restaurant ever.

My girlfriend and I went there today for our first and last time. I am not at all pleased for I had higher expectations. My girlfriend ordered Alfredo, and I ordered a burger, clam chowder and chicken strips to share. The burger was massive but a Big Mac is even by far more satisfying.. (And I don't particularily like Big Macs) The clam chowder was colder than the slice of watermelon garnish that came with the burger. The chicken strips were so dry that I don't see how I could have swalloed it without the plum sauce. And I don't know about the Alfredo, but by the looks of my gf's slow eating and doodling with her fork spinning it, I can't say much good about that either.

The service was okay, we couldn't finish our $45 completely unsatisfying meal so we asked politely if they can pack it for us so the waitress said, "I'll get you a box." Maybe it's just me because I'm used to restaurants doing it for you so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

As fas as ambiance goes. I felt it was quite unsanitary and dull.. I may be saying this only because I've expected more but I just wasn't feeling it. We sat outside to enjoy the sun and about 6 tables away from us, there was a raccoon on the table picking at the sugar packages. (Along with the 4 other raccoons just outside of the foyer, but they weren't doing much, just enjoying the cameras and the attention.

Overall, this is a tourist restaurant so they can get a view of the river and the cars crossing Lion's Gate.. Not like we've never seen a bridge and a river before, right?
