Great Weekend Tea with Friends or Family!
Submitted Monday, February 1, 2010 - 3:22pm [Dine in]

I went here with family on Saturday morning for dim sum and was quite impressed with everying from the service to the food. I have to agree with Panda that the congee is amazing. I especially like how they leave the ingredients raw and cook it at your table. The best part of the meal is their tea. They serve your tea in tradional Chinese tea cups which is great so you can control the strength of the tea. As well the tea is of very high quality and will keep you there well after your meal. Service is very attentive and you do not have to ask for anything the waiters are very well trained and will notice you if you look like you need help. It is not only good in terms of a Chinese restaurant but compared to any type of restaurant. If you do order the congee remember to order a few less dishes as it is huge. I definitely recommend going here for dim sum and tea. They also have all their menus in english as well which is very convenient.

Terrible Faux Thai!
Submitted Monday, February 1, 2010 - 2:44pm [Dine in]

Went to this restaurant on Saturday and the food was subpar to be generous. I ordered two dishes the Thai hot and sour soup chicken noodles and the Thai beef salad. The soup which I presume to be Tom Yum soup was bland and tasted like dilute soup from cubes that you can buy from super markets. The chicken was not marinated and was completely bland as well. The beef salad which I thought would be better was awful from start to finish. The beef was tenderized beef slices that appeared to be deep fried; authentic ones should use grilled steak. The rest of the salad consists of bell peppers, tomatoes, and lots of onions. Over half the salad was only onions! The sauce was the worst part as it was basically Vietnamese spring roll sauce. Authentic Thai salad should consist of a lime juice, chili, garlic, and fish sauce base. Overall I would not come back to this restaurant. At twenty dollars for two dishes it was not worth it for quality that is lower than food court quality. I did not try their curry but do not want to take the risk.

NIce view but terrible food
Submitted Tuesday, September 29, 2009 - 4:42pm [Dine in]

I have to agree with lilac on this restaurant. I was one of the diners from the table of ten. The food took a long time to arrive even though the restaurant was only half full. When the food did arrive it was under satisfactory levels. The common problem with all the dishes I tried was seasoning. Salt should be the first ingredient you season with and it wasn't present. Everything was bland bland bland. The grilled calamari was basically frozen tiny squid rings that were blanched and tossed in a pan with oil. There were no grill flavour in it at all. The chicken wings while nicely presented were not seasoned and failed to bring any flavour out of the chicken. I had the ahi tuna entree and while the tuna was well cooked it was not salted. The sides consisting of baby carrots, squash, and rice were all undercooked. All were crunchy and unappetizing. I would definely come back to enjoy the view with a couple drinks but food is definitely a no.

Great Pho without MSG
Submitted Monday, April 20, 2009 - 2:23pm [Dine in]

This is the best pho that I have ever had and I've been enjoying pho for more than ten years. The soup is made without msg and you can actually taste the subtle ingredients used for the stock. Their regular pho's with one meat are six dollars while the deluxe ones are nine dollars. If you are a first time visitor I would suggest their combo special which consists of a beef pho, salad, and a spring roll for eight dollars. Really amazing pho I just wish it was in a less obscure location and had better seating.

Great tasting fresh food
Submitted Tuesday, March 4, 2008 - 12:02am [Dine in]

My friend and I went here tonight after work for a bite to eat. We were craving for some sashimi. We arrived around nine fifteen and to our surprise the place was full of people and the atmosphere was buzzing. We were really not expecting many people at this time seeing that it is a Monday night. This had to be a good sign and it was proven later with the food. We ordered the sockeye salmon sashimi, rainbow roll, hotate (scallop nigiri), and grilled squid. The sockeye salmon sashimi and the rainbow row were the most noticeable part of the meal. The sashimi was thick cut and fresh so you can really enjoy the texture and flavour. The rainbow roll is a california roll with tobiko and with different slices of fish on the outside for each piece. It had salmon, sockeye salmon, hamachi, and prawn on top. The roll was amazing as the crab was prepared perfectly; not too dry and just rich enough that it enhances the flavour of the crab but doesn't over power it. The rice on it was only about two millimetres thick so you won't be overwhelmed by it. It took real precision for the sushi chef to prepare it this way. Overall great place to go after work to relax and the waiters are all extremely friendly and will help you with all your needs. I will definitely go back again.

PS. Don't be fooled by their closing time of ten o'clock, they will let you in and last call is at ten. You can still sit their and enjoy your meal and they won't rush you.

Good quality ingredients and good service.
Submitted Saturday, January 26, 2008 - 2:37pm [Dine in]

Went here last night for dinner. Servers were attentive and provided excellent service. They operated smoother than clock work as soon as we sat down they asked us which soup base we prefer so we did not have to wait. This restaurant also uses gas stoves instead induction heaters which most restaurants use now. The gas stoves were great the temperature never dropped; that'll make a big difference when you have a huge group and you're all trying to get stove time :) The servers also kept our orders 95 percent accurate which is amazing for a large table. All the food is brought in a timely manner. Food quality is great. All the meats and seafood were extremely fresh. I really suggest trying this place at 16.50 per person its a great deal.

Fresh and creative sushi!
Submitted Saturday, January 26, 2008 - 2:17pm [Dine in]

My friend and I went to this little sushi restaurant last week after a long day of work. I heard of this restaurant from some friends who went there before and was quite happy about the food. We ordered the sashimi salad, mango california rolls, and other various nigri sushi. To my amazement you can actually tell the difference between the fish they use and the fish other generic all you can eat sushi places. The salmon had a strong salmon flavour that is rare in affordable sushi restaurants. The tuna was also excellent it a creamy texture and was full of flavour. I also enjoyed they way they put a twist a the california roll. The mango really added a lot of tangyness; combined with the richness of the crab really changed the whole flavour. Overall I would definitely go back to try their other offerings.

Horrendous Dining Experience.
Submitted Monday, September 25, 2006 - 12:24am [Dine in]

I recently went to this restaurant with my family on Sunday night only to find that deciding to come here was was one of the worst dining decisons I have ever made. At first it may seem like a great deal. Only 18 dollars a head and unlimited canned pop for 1 dollar extra. However, all is not as it seems. To make up for the low price they actually enforce the time limit of two hours. With the slow service you will still end up coming out hungry. Food took around one hour for the first order to come around and almost half of the order did not arrive. There was lack of urgency in any of the service staff there. Even though the food was good it does not make up for the lack of customer service. After our second round of orders we politely informed them that half our food did not show up but we can just order again. The waitress rudely replied to us that she did in fact bring everything and our time was up and she proceeded to turn off the heater. She would not even bring us additional pop, she offered free tea instead. It is safe to say that I will never ever step into this establishment again. With so many great restaurants in Richmond this place does not have a remote chance of surviving. Try going to the hot pot place on the same street next door, Sun Tung Kee. Bigger establishment and better service. Most importantly you will not be hungry when you leave.
