Maurya Indian Cuisine1643 W Broadway, Vancouver
Now that is a curry
Submitted Monday, December 14, 2009 - 1:27pm [Dine in]

I think Maurya is a gem in its own right-one of the best indian restaurants I have been in the Lower Mainland. The food is indian in all its spiciness and flavors of East India. The lamb curry was especially memorable as was the vegetarian platter. The chicken tendoori was hearty and tender (not at all tough and overcooked) Although I think the naans could have been bigger.

Overall great food and experience!

My husband and the kids all agreed that the food was wonderful, but we felt that the portion sizes were a little too small for the price. We will come back for good warm curry if in the neighborhood.

Akari Japanese Restaurant7261 120 Street, Delta
This is my parent's favorite place and it turned out to be alright!

The Delta Akari Japanese Restaurant...

This is my parent's favorite place and because of the location (Delta and sushi seems like an oxymoron), I was hesitant to try it out. But being in a open spirit and shopping near by, I finally decided to try it out last night with the family.

At the end of the experience I had one word to sum it all up: INCREDIBLE!
We got assorted sashimi platter, miso soup, gomae, takoyaki, chiken terriyaki, Alaska crab salad special and the bottled sake.

One of the reasons I like going here is because of their
crispy tempura rolls. They are the crispiest and finest that I've tasted

Miso Soup: You can't mess up miso soup...deep miso broth with seaweed
it's a perfect way to de-stress in the winter.

Gomae: This item is my litmus test. I can tell the authenticity of a Japanese restaurant
by whether or not they use peanut butter sauce or ground sesame.
This place used the real thing- hand ground sesame sauce, not to heavy just right.

Sashimi platter: Great presentation and the colors were lively and appetizing-
eating it after a while.

Chicken Terriyaki: The sauce!
It's some sort of a smoky, not too sweet, tangy terriyaki saunce.
Rarely do you find a Japanese place that uses fire grilled chicken breast
over stir fried thigh meat.My husband loved it and the quality was great for the price.

Alaskan Crab Salad: This was the special for the night and was recommended to us by our waitress. Oh boy, were we glad to try this. I have never tasted anything so fresh and satisfying in a long time. It was a delicate treat for my taste bud- whole pieces of de-shelled Alaskan Crab (quite a generous portion)on top of seasoned dark greens, with garlic chips and gingery seasoning with tobiko eggs. YUMMY. Definitely worth the $12.

Value: For the quality and attention you get, outstanding value. For a dinner for 4 with a quality bottle of sake, it came to a little above $120. Quite reasonable if you ask me.

Service: This place was really packed, even on a Sunday night.
Where did all these people come from? It seems like people here in Delta wanted to congregate here for their sushi fix. Service was slow but nothing short of attentive. We actually preferred this over the unecessary frequent tea stops at some other places. The owner and his various staff have s been pleasant and fun to talk to. The owners came by at the end and asked us if we enjoyed the experience. She even gave me a souvenir chopstick when I told her
that I came here on recommendation from my parents-a long time patron!

Because of their sushi presentation and solid service, I will leave 5 stars+!
For anyone looking for authentic and quality sushi look no further than
Delta. I have placed Akari in the favorite list.

Hon's Wun Tun House4600 No. 3 Rd, #101, Richmond
Phenomenal food, but very poor service
Submitted Monday, December 14, 2009 - 11:40am [Dine in]

The soup items here are phenomenal. Everything was as good as everyone says it is.
The restaurant itself was packed on a Saturday lunch. The wait was about 20 minutes, but once you sit down they start you right off with a bowl of piping hot Hon's soup. The two of us gobbled it all up. The chinese bun is made from their fluffy dough is great heavenly drenched in their "special sauce". The scrambled eggs with chinese vegetables was good but nothing special.

If you're in the area, Hon's is definitely a worthwhile place to grab a bite. Don't go if you're looking for service, cleaniness or ambiance. It is a typical Chinese joint.

Hanako Japanese Restaurant15135 101 Avenue, #205, Surrey
What happened?
Submitted Monday, December 14, 2009 - 11:02am [Dine in]

How many times have I been here? Who knows..
Enough times to know their menu.
I have to say that my two favorite items here are, of course,
the Speicial Rolls and the udon. So I came here in the afternoon after shopping to eat to get my fix. Too bad that the good things end here.

The rolls were mediocre at best! The tuna in my rolls were half frozen..the rice were hard. Their tempura was soggy and bits of starch were drenching the veggies.

Usually I'm a pretty easy going person but I just couldn't take it anymore. I finally called for the waiter and told her about my meal. She promptly apologized and said she'll get the manager (her English wasn't that great).
As I was looking behind the counter, I saw the manager/owner being busy counting cash, and he finally came after 20 minutes! This place has really gone down hill for me. Because of my past good experiences with them, I will leave 3 stars!

Khunnai Chang Thai Cuisine835 Denman St., Vancouver
Go here for authentic Thai
Submitted Monday, December 14, 2009 - 10:13am [Dine in]

I tried this place with my husband when his friend visited. We've traveled around South East Asian and were craving some good Thai food. Khunnai was the closest thing to authentic Thai I have had in Vancouver so far.
Love their fish curries and spicy beef salad. The seasoning and the tenderness of the beef meshed perfectly. The service was solid and warm. This will become one of my regular places for Thai food.
