Yeay! Finally!
Submitted Sunday, July 13, 2008 - 11:15am [Dine in]

Wow! Finally a place that serves some good Asian desserts! I've been here three times and I'm always satisfied with my choices. We've tried mango coconut milk drink (with texture kinda like Lassi), mango w/ glutenous black rice, green onion pancake w/ beef, tofu pudding w/ sago in coconut milk, strawberry in sago mix, and red bean milk. Mmmm..they are all equally good! Lots of varieties! The good thing is that they're open late till 1am or 2am. Only one complaint was that there was this one time where they didn't some things on the menu so I had to keep on choosing another item. Other than that, I totally recommend this place. It does get busy sometimes so you might have to wait a lil longer for the desserts.

Always good when I went
Submitted Friday, June 13, 2008 - 10:23am [Dine in]

Came here 3 times. First time was 4-5 yrs ago and I still remember that their black cod was really good. I think their food is consistent but their portion is quite small for the price I paid for. I guess it's ok cuz I kinda expected it since they're located in Yaletown.
The other times were 2-3 yrs ago and we ordered the appys which was fun and tasty.
I like it how Glowbal remembers my bday and anniversary. They always send me a letter every yr asking me to visit them again. And if I present that letter to them, they will give me a complimentary dessert.
Cool.

It tastes pretty good for foodcourt quality
Submitted Wednesday, June 11, 2008 - 12:41am [Dine in]

Been here a few times and ordered their butter chicken and drink combo. Their sauce is tasty and their chicken is in tiny lil chunks. I didn't mind it cuz I'm not much of a meat eater but it's quite expensive. I think it was $7 a combo.
The last time I went was a week day and I guess it was a quiet day so they kept the food a lil bit too long. After I had the meal, I went home and immediately had to go the washroom. Food poisoning? Maybe.

Submitted Wednesday, June 11, 2008 - 12:35am [Dine in]

I dunno if I should give this place a review since I've only tried their Pearl Milk Tea and nothing else. Been here twice since the renovation. I must say, their milk tea is pretty tasty and not too sweet. I normally have to request half sugar at other places. Also their pearls are chewy and perfect. Not super soft or slimy.
The staffs there are quick and efficient. I never had to wait more than 30 seconds to order.
Value wise, it's abit expensive for a to-go place at $3.95 inc/ tax.

My Tongue was Dancing
Submitted Wednesday, June 11, 2008 - 12:19am [Dine in]

Came here last month and I'm constantly craving for this place.

AMBIANCE: When we took a few steps into the restaurant, we were "greeted" by a pianist along with her piano playing lovingly. My first word was, "wow." The main floor looked like a fine dining restaurant. The second floor was where we sat. It gave us a different feel. It felt like we were at home and there were lots of windows looking down on the "basement floor" of the restaurant. Or if you look up, there is a vast sun roof with lots of light shining down onto us. I thought that was very nice and unique.

SERVICE: Our server was nice but she could've asked us if we wanted water while we were waiting for a few more friends. Ordering our food was fine and dandy until we started ordering drinks. Our server didn't understand what a chaser was, she thought we said Caesar. And her English was not that great. Also, I'm guessing maybe she's new cuz she didn't give us utensils and extra plates until we asked for it.

FOOD: MmMmm dunno where to start. We ordered a set menu w/ appy on a spoon, clam miso soup, steak & creme brulee. Oh everything was sooo good! The clam miso soup had practically 20-30 clam and mussels in a medium size bowl. It's crazy! And the creme brulee was yummmy but a lil small. The creme brulee includes a orange and a matcha flavor. Both equally delicious. We also had their cod and rolls which was above average.

I will definitely go again and try some more food!

Yummy soup
Submitted Tuesday, June 10, 2008 - 12:10am [Dine in]

Started coming here for a month now. I can't believe that I haven't discover this place earlier. I always walk by here and never noticed this place b/c it's small and could easily be missed.
I've tried their soups and my most favorite one is veggie tomato soup w/ coconut. MmMMmm the best soup I've ever had! Their mushroom soup was not bad. Their eggplant soup was ok. I also tried their popular Najib's Special Pita and it was too vinegary for me.
I will be back to try other things.

India Gate616 Robson St, Vancouver
Expensive!
Submitted Monday, June 9, 2008 - 12:08am [Dine in]

It was either Tropika or India Gate. We've never tried India Gate before so we gave it a try. I know it's been in business for 31 years so I had some high expectations from this place.
We went inside and we were greeted immediately. We got our menus and papadum to start. Delicious and addictive! When we opened the menu and omg butter chicken was a whopping $17! I'm thinking to myself, this butter chicken must be hella good or I'll be upset! Other restaurants I've been to only cost between $11-14. When I saw that price, my jaws dropped. Anyways, the food that the guy was eating next to us looked really good so I calmed down a little. We ordered the butter chicken with a side of naan bread. When the food came, I laughed a little inside. The butter chicken was small, unappealing, tasteless looking. This is not traditional is it? I've had better. They gave us a side of rice which was on a huge plate. The naan bread was small and burnt all over. I've never seen a naan bread burnt before! How am I supposed to eat it when it's black? Anyways, the meal didn't stuff us up ofcourse.
I don't recommend this place. I've went to Taste of India 4 times and it's awesome there.

A little too hyped up
Submitted Sunday, June 8, 2008 - 11:54pm [Dine in]

Heard about this place from a friend so my partner and I decided to go check it out after dinner.
It's a bakery with about 4-5 tables which is always occupied by people. This place is pretty much made for take-out only but not everyone wants to enjoy their sweets at home.
I've actually been here 3 times b/c I wanted to see if I'm missing out on anything. The first time we went it was ok. The second time was pretty good. Then the third time was just ok again. We've tried this black/white mousse, coconut cake, passion fruit cake, fruit tart and mango cheesecake. All of them were GOOD but not spectacular. They do have lots of cakes to choose from and they all look yummy but it just didn't satisfy me.
Service was ok. Not sure if they're enjoying their job. I know it gets busy sometimes but they should expect it though.

Don't think I'll be giving it another try.

Cheaper than other bbt place
Submitted Friday, June 6, 2008 - 10:41am [Dine in]

Went here at 10pm on a weekday. Never thought I'd come here but a friend suggested it so..I thought why not?
They're located beside 7-11 so parking is somewhat limited (approx 15-20 spots) and it was almost full. This place is pretty brand new and clean. Only 2-3 tables were taken up when we arrived. Not too busy.
We ordered a bunch of stuff but the only thing I tried was green milk tea (good, foamy on top and not too sweet), passionfruit green tea (not bad), and the salad tastes fresh but had too much dressing.
I would probably go again to try their rice and noodles.

Brand new
Submitted Wednesday, June 4, 2008 - 12:52am [Dine in]

This place used to be a vegetarian restaurant but they totally renovated it, and probably changed owner.
I've been here once for lunch and twice for dinner.
For lunch, we ordered noodle soup and they're humungous! I had the assorted veg and meat w/ crispy noodles. It was pretty good.
For dinner, which we don't understand why it's dead during dinner time. Their food is above average! Their fried cod is good. Their garlic choy (dou meu) is unbelievably tasty! My mom and I think that they have a secret recipe for that dish. Their soup is fresh and everything was good or better!

I've tried Richmond and Chinatown locations but somehow this place tastes so much better!
This place is huge! With 4 different kitchens, it's awesome!
I never really have to wait in line.
I like their veg dishes. My fave is the buddhist feast w/ cripsy noodles. It's the best. I only order that. My dad likes their bbq pork w/ rice. Their potsticker is pretty good too.

Was a lil nervous coming here...
Submitted Wednesday, June 4, 2008 - 12:40am [Dine in]

I know this place have been in business for many yrs but I was still scared going in there. This restaurant is kinda hidden behind another set of doors and I never see anybody inside (b/c the windows and doors are covered up). I always walk by this place so I decided to give it try one day. I went there during lunch time, around 1ish and there was only ONE PERSON eating in there. The restaurant is pretty huge so I got a lil worried. I was greeted by a nice lady and got my tea right away. I ordered the Shanghai Noodles. When it arrived, I was a lil disappointed. The color (sauce color) was kinda off and it didn't look like the ones I normally order from other restaurants. The bbq pork inside didn't look like regular meat or it's probably cheap meat. It was kinda freaky. I ate half of it and had the rest to go. That dish was expensive too, 9 bucks. For that price, I could easily order a set lunch menu somewhere else. I asked for the bill and saw this other customer paying at the cashier. He got a fortune cookie so I expected one too. When my bill arrived, I received nothing but a hefty bill. I felt insulted even though I am Chinese myself and that customer was Caucasian. I left the restaurant feeling unsatisfied and ripped off.

I normally come here if I'm not fully satisfied or stuffed from dinner. Yes, I'm a pig. I normally order regular bbt and/or egg balls. If you haven't tried them yet, it's quite good. It's kinda like a mixture egg, flour, milk and it's cooked in lil egg shaped waffle pan.
Normally ppl order to go. Also this place is small which can only fit like 2 tables.

Submitted Wednesday, June 4, 2008 - 12:13am [Dine in]

Ok, I know this place looks very cutesy and girly but it's nice, clean and comfy in there. Their food and bbt are good too!

We normally order their set menu for $5 more which inc/ a cup green/red tea, soup (yummy) and salad (fresh tasting). We've tried their salmon, sandwich and pasta. They are all equally good. I'm quite impressed w/ their wide food selection, I think it fits everybody's taste.

Give it a try!

OMG!! Never again!!
Submitted Wednesday, May 21, 2008 - 11:53pm [Dine in]

Came here on a long weekend. Was craving for Thai soup. So I ordered the Tom Ka Gai and Crispy Wonton. The soup looked perfect and tasted delicious. But the crispy wonton which they claim to have "minced veggies & tofu" turned out to be just some mushed up yam. It was kinda weird but the plum sauce made up for it. After I was done, I went for a walk and after 10mins, my stomach was acting up. I quickly drove home and had diarrhea twice! No joke. Something must've been spoiled b/c the crispy "dough" did tasted kinda bitter but I thought I was hallucinating. Or maybe the mushrooms in the soup was not cleaned properly. What a weekend for me.

Never again...

It wasn't that great.
Submitted Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 3:33pm [Dine in]

Hm...you think if you eat in with an empty stomach, anything should taste good. I was walking around The Drive one day and saw this sign out front stating "the best fries in town", so I had to try it.
Turns out, it was a little disappointing. It was in a good size but the taste was just not there. It was actually really bland. I could barely eat half of it and I was very hungry. There wasn't any salt and..the cheese or whatever they have didn't have any taste to it. I just couldn't believe that there is NO TASTE to it!

A Pleasant Surprise
Submitted Sunday, May 18, 2008 - 1:01am [Dine in]

I was a little nervous and felt intimidated because this place is huge and gorgeous! And I thought the food would cost me an arm and a leg, but it DIDN'T!
I came here on a Saturday night. Once I stepped my foot in, I was greeted by a nice gentleman which promptly seated me by the vast windows. If only this town was not bombarded by condos, the view might've looked more appealing. The service was awesome; I practically had 2 servers constantly cleaning my table, refilling tea and replacing dirty napkins. They have regular menu items which is Jap or Chinese and Sushi buffet. I had the regular menu while other 3-4 tables around me had the buffet. I assume they have a large selections of sushi, etc. But I don't eat much so I ordered Miso soup, sashimi (which you can half order it) and a roll. The miso soup was in a big bowl which contained seaweed, tofu and green onions. Quite good. The sashimi was pretty good served in a decent size. Not in thin slices. And the roll was average. Overall, the presentation was nice and the food is average.
This place is beautiful so I think it'll make a wonderful lounge for drinks at night.
I would like to go again and will recommend this place.

Submitted Friday, May 9, 2008 - 12:31am [Dine in]

Went here twice and both times were wonderful. I find this place serves some unique dishes. Better than Hapa or Guu (they're getting kinda boring and I can't stand lining up). Toratatsu is a small place, has good looking waitresses, not too noisy and comfy.
I've tried the tuna w/ fried avocado, pork ribs w/ miso teriyaki, cheese tofu, edamame, salad, saba and kimchi rice bowl. Every dish was very delicious. My fave will be everything but edamame b/c they put too much seasalt on it. Other than that, they all taste PERFECT.
I'm surprised that they don't have people lining out the door!

Totally recommend this place.

What?! They didn't close down?
Submitted Friday, May 9, 2008 - 12:17am [Dine in]

Went here (at the Cambie location) last yr w/ my bf. The place looked kinda retro and we were excited to see what kind of food they serve. It was quiet that day and we were seated immediately. But after that, it took them years to come by to take our order. There were at least 4 staffs working doing absolutely nothing and one of them was sweeping right in front of us (which is not very appetizing). We ordered tomato soup and rotisserie chicken. The soup was NASTY AND BLAND, kinda reminded me of Campbell's tomato soup but WORSE. The rotisserie chicken was ICY COLD AND DRY! I don't know...but I thought rotisserie is supposed to be at least WARM and moist????? It was terrible. The food was a disappointment and we received NO SERVICE. Blah!

Never going again.

Cookies Of Course555 W Hastings Street, Vancouver
Mmmm not disappointed
Submitted Saturday, May 3, 2008 - 11:41am [Dine in]

Been thinking about this place because of all the great reviews here. I'm not usually around SFU but fortunately I was around that area few days ago. It was around 5ish and they're still opened! It was my first time so I ordered 2 of chocolate chip, peanut butter & oatmeal. The decadent chocolate was sold out. I really want to try that next time. I shared the cookies w/ the family so I only got a bite of chocolate chips. It was pretty good! Slightly crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Not bad of a combo. I hate to admit it but it might be better than Cookies by George. Cookies Of Course is more affordable. $5.75 for 1/2 dozen while George is like $1.35 each and it's smaller in size. And they're not always fresh. Ouch.
Also the service is better. The young girl that was working there was very friendly and smiley. It's rare you get that service anywhere!
