Thai House Restaurant1766 W 7th Avenue, Vancouver
Good Thai food over 10 years
Submitted Saturday, August 2, 2008 - 8:23pm [Dine in]

Have eaten here for around 10 years since I work nearby and the food is always great. It's sort of fusion Thai so very palatable if you cannot have too spicy or too exotic looking food. Spring rolls melt in your mouth and the Pad Thai noodles and seafood fried rice are worth trying out. The lunch specials of rice and and different curry type toppings are great value for office lunches. These come with soup and spring rolls. Some dishes may have too many bell peppers and onions, but I love bell peppers and onions. Lettuce wrap dishe is very good too. Service is always trying hard to please and any complaints are well attended to. Again this is over ten years of observing the service. The decor is open and airy and reminds me of old colonial houses in Asia. Very pleasant and not kitschy at all except for the fake palms but I like those too. The settings are always pristine. This is all during daylight hours so have not been here at night. Again consistently clean and tidy for over ten years.

Ho Do10302 135th St, #123, Surrey
Authentic
Submitted Tuesday, July 29, 2008 - 7:56pm [Dine in]

First of all the food is truly delicious. Try the seafood chow mein...crispy and alternately saucy with large fresh shrimp and vegetables. Both types of crab dishes--the one with sauce and the dry one are very good though of course the former is more messy. They provide a small container of lemon water to rinse your fingers after you have demolished the crab.

All the different dishes we tried, including peking duck, fish and chicken dishes are all authentic. Though sweet and sour pork (boneless with pineapple) may seem a cliche for Chinese food, I think Ho Do's is the best from all the places we have gone to in Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby and Surrey.

For different numbers of people, you can order from two to ten dishes with different price range so having a big party is not a problem. Then there is free crab and lettuce wrap in proportion to the number of your guests. We have eaten here for over two years and even order large party trays for parties and the food is always fresh, delicious and consistent.

As to the ambiance, don't expect a made over restaurant where the owner sacrificed food and value to impress you with the surroundings. No, from the bathroom sink propped up on a rusty pole to the tubs of water on top of the ceiling tiles that the staff nonchalantly lowered (it was leaking) in front of everyone, to the handwritten signs all in Chinese, this is truly an Anthony Bourdain travel experiene.

Boonie's BBQ & Soul Food6150 176th Street, Surrey
Can't Be Beat
Submitted Friday, July 25, 2008 - 9:25pm [Dine in]

I honestly considered myself an expert cook when it comes to ribs. But I bow and give all kudos to Boonie's. Yes, it is extraordinary food and just right in flavour, texture and value. So this is how the Southern half lives...the sauce is amazing...SMOKED and sultry. I have never had anything like it. We tried collared greens which was almost like a salad with its vinegary and silky texture. The cornbread (buttery plus topped with honey) by themselves were worth the drive over from Newton. The Soul Food sampler (three ribs and a side order) is just right for smaller ladies' appetites. And the menu is adaptable to anyone as you can mix and match the different sides. Our Asian palate did miss the white rice but then we wanted Southern and not Asian food! Of course family run service cannot be beat and Mr. Boonie himself will ask you how your meal was. The curling rink ambiance is pretty solid, unpretentious but clean (especially the washrooms during off season) and thoroughly pleasant. I wouldn't want to change a thing.

Mazuya Sushi2355 Burrard Street, Vancouver
Rare Gem
Submitted Thursday, July 17, 2008 - 5:34pm [Dine in]

Mazuya is a rare gem of a place. Have been here four times and the food has been excellent especially the unique rolls the chef has created. I love the Honda sushi and Mango Sushi. Each mouthful is a real treat. Though small and on busy lunch hours, service could be delayed, it is still worth while coming here. The value for food is outstanding especially with the box lunches. Guests have left little notes about the place on a kudos board (it's really a fish net where notes are hung with tiny clothespins, really cute) and its worthwhile trying out their recommendations.

Oriental Buffet15140 101 Ave, Surrey
Far Cry
Submitted Thursday, July 17, 2008 - 5:24pm [Dine in]

Sorry but it is a far cry from the bustling Oriental of a few years ago. Food was too salty/greasy. The breaded shrimps seemed to be brined shrimps covered with batter. Frozen dimsum from the grocery is much better than the ones they serve. Though "newly renovated" and looking better, the food is much worse.

Mixed Feelings
Submitted Thursday, July 17, 2008 - 5:08pm [Dine in]

We had a birthday dinner here on June 25th and invited family. The food was superb, especially the hakka fish (recommended by the house), House Chicken, Thai green curry and a lamb dish. Everyone exclaimed over the unique and distinct flavours of each dish. However we missed the small print on the menu that mentioned that 20% tip would be included for a party of ten or more and also missed it on the invoice. So when the interact asked for tip, I added another 10% and so paid over $40 in tips for a meal of $160. Though it did not seem too bad considering the excellence of the food, it did leave us with mixed feelings. I remember a couple of restaurants we had been to in the past did remind us to ignore the interact query when tip is included in the invoice, and it would have a courteous thing to do if they had done it here.
