My friend took me to this place that is close to her home and we made it just in time for dim-sum.
We ordered the shrimp dumplings and they were huge and stuffed with so many shrimp you could barely fit it in your mouth. the spring rolls were o.k and kind of cold. We ordered a bunch of other things and they were all very good. We actually ordered too much so we had tons of dim-sum left over for almost the next 3 days of my stay in Vancouver.
The sevice was great. Our waitress was very patient with us. She tried her best to try and figure out what we wanted to order by us describing it in english. our tea was always full of hot water and she did her best to describe what she was showing us.
We were scarred that out bill would be about $50 for the both of us since we ordered so much but was plesantly surprised when it came to $21!
I'd love to visit this place again the next time i'm in Vancouver.

My friend and I made the trek to the Olive Garden. I'm visiting from L.A and she told me that it was a long drive to Langley. I didn't think it was (I guess we're used to driving long distances daily)
Our server was super sweet and filled my wine glass to the very top becuase she said that there's just a tiny bit left and didn't want to waste it. I was very happy about that.
I ordered the portabello raviolli and just loved it! My friend ordered a chicken pasta dish and it was cold but we had a great time anyways. This was her first time at olive garden but in the states we have a ton of them everywhere.

I'm from out-of-town and My friend took me to this little hidden family-run, Tiny Japanese restaurant Called Van -ya.
The place is a little boring looking and theres nothing special about the decor but the food was great!
I ordrerd the Chicken combination which was very good. Tates like my mothers cooking. Very healthy! They didn't really have a big selection of Sashimi but I don't blame them (it's such a small place) but we had the saba nigiri and salmon and was happy to see they used wild salmon. My friend told me that a lot of "japanese" restaurants in Vancouver use Farmed salmon.
Overall I was very satisfied and super full. Will recommend this place to friends visiting vancouver

I'm from L.A and a friend from Vancouver was showing me around robson street and we ended up at Ebi su.
We ordered the raw oysters and loved it!! the old bad thing was The beer tasted watered down.
This place is great if you want to be in a loud drinking atmosphere but after 3 pitchers of the watered down beer the noise was tollerable. The waitress kept on hitting on every guy at the table and kept ignoring the girls....
Overall the food was great and I would probably go there again maybe just for dinner before the drunken parties.

I'm from L.A visiting some friends in Vancouver and she introduced us to Clubhouse. When I walked in I wasn't sure if this was a Japanese restaurant becuase the decor is not Japanese looking at all. I found out from my friend who often frequents Clubhouse that the owner is a huge golf fan, hence the golf decor. (btw she also posted a review but it was strangely deleted)
In L.A there are many nice Japanese restaurants such as Nobu which I found the Tuna Ponzu to be simmilar and waay less in price. I tried Okonomiyaki for the first time since Japan and loved it! Next time we're in Vancouver we want to try the modan Yaki (hiroshima style okonomiyaki). The rolls were good. I tried the rolls with the cream cheese in it and it was surprisingly good.
The service was great even though it was quite busy. I ordered a strawberry margarita but the had ran out of strawberries so I had a pina colada instead.
For dessert we tried a Japanese crepe filled with Adzuki beans topped with ice cream and whipped cream....Mmmm Delicious!!!
I had a great time and I would love to go back the next time I visit Vancouver!! Love this city!!
