Ali Shan Restaurant4500 Kingsway, #1233, Burnaby
Filled Bellies for Stretched Bucks
Submitted Sunday, January 25, 2009 - 9:26pm [Dine in]

The food is quite good and at a considerable portion. Their rice combos usually consist of a large bowl of rice, a sunny-side up egg, two side dishes (usually one veg) and a meat-based, good-sized entree. It also comes with a complimentary glass of iced cold tea or soup - your choice. The food usually takes 15 - 20 minutes, longer if you order the deep-fried drumstick rice combo, but the quality of the food doesn't disappoint. The price range is around $6 ~ $ 12 - a good bargain considering how filling the meal is. I come here quite often. It is refreshing to find a restaurant that maintains its portion size and not increase the price in these times of economic turmoil nowadays. Definitely a thumbs - up.

Kintaro Ramen788 Denman Street, Vancouver
Oodles of Good Noodles
Submitted Sunday, January 25, 2009 - 9:09pm [Dine in]

The ramen is very delicious and worth every penny in my opinion. However, it does get very hectic as many people line up for their infamous noodles. The waitresses seem to handle the choas well, though, so don't worry about waiting forever for a seat. The staff is very polite and it is definitely one of my go-to places for a nice lunch.

It's Cream-tastic!
Submitted Sunday, January 25, 2009 - 9:06pm [Dine in]

An excellent choice for dessert or simply a mid-afternoon snack. I would highly recommend the eclair for the chocoholics. The dark chocolate shell is of considerable thickness and a perfect companion to the cool, velvet creamy goodness inside. The shell is of the right consistency and crumble right into the creamy inside when you sink your teeth into it. It is very rich and not too sweet. A delight treat every once in a while.

Fish On Rice - Not very nice
Submitted Sunday, January 25, 2009 - 8:57pm [Dine in]

The service is VERY poor. Do not expect any good - or even adequate customer service as none of the servers are very helpful. The waitresses walk right by you and leave "thank-you's" hanging in the air. And don't forget to give them big, fat tips, either. My friends and I were humiliated today when we didn't give them the customery 10% tip today. To be honest, I hadn't expected the bill to be at the amount it was today and none of us brought any change. The bill came to a few cents more of a whole number and I had just enough. But when we were about the leave the cashier screamed at us to come back and kept insisting that "tip was not included". He yelled at my friend, in a obnoxious tone, "Haven't you been to a restaurant before? This isn't Burger K*ng!! You pay tips!" Humiliated, we stood in front of the counter, red-faced and almost to tears, trying to dig pennies out from pockets, while the whole restuarent looked on as another waiter slammed the black bill tray right before us.
Now, to be fair, the food was pretty good and the menu has a nice variety of Japanese dishes. The wait is short considering how busy the restaurant usually gets. But unless you have some extra cash to tip the rude servers, there are plenty of japanese restaurants for you to dip your chopsticks in.
