Cheap and Good Dim Sum Place
Submitted Thursday, June 28, 2012 - 11:59pm [Dine in]

Whenever we come to this place for dim sum, it's always packed and I understand why. It's because the quality and portion of the food that you get is well worth what you pay for, which was super reasonable. I mean it's no Kirin or Sun Sui Wah, which of course has more variety and better quality, but those places can get pretty expensive if you order a lot of seafood items. Last time I went here on a weekend, the bill came up to $30ish for 3 people and we were stuffed. I hear it's 20% off during the week.

The dim sum comes around in carts and everything I ordered was steaming hot, fresh, and tasty. I thought the har gow (shrimp dumplings) was excellent. The dumplings were full of actual shrimp and not mashed up shrimp, which some other places i've gone to serve. Other memorable dishes were the pan fried loh bak gow (radish cake) with XO sauce, stuffed eggplant, egg tarts, and baked tapioca pudding dessert.

I came here for dinner once and had the 2-course peking duck and pork chops cooked in this orange marmalade kinda sauce. Both dishes were excellent and the portions were big. :D

The ladies that push the dim sum carts and the servers were super nice, attentive, and spoke english. The restaurant itself looks pretty new and the clean. There's a few TVs that constantly show some sort of chinese show.

In short, it's one of my favorite dim sum places because of the reasonable price and the quality.

A Cute Little Sushi Place in North Poco
Submitted Tuesday, January 3, 2012 - 4:42pm [Dine in]

I have been here a few times and have tried some of their combo specials, appetizers, and special rolls. The portions are big and well worth what you pay for, which is probably why I keep coming back. The freshness of the raw fish and seafood is decent. The quality of the food is good for the price you pay. The waitress (also probably the owner) was nice and asked us how everything tasted and if we needed anything else politely. The decor of the place is pleasant and it seems like they put a lot of money and effort into decorating the place so it looks like an authentic japanese restaurant.

They have free delivery (for north poco) if you order more than $25 and if you pick up a $25+ order you get free gyoza and edamame. They have some really good $10 or less combos, which are only posted on the restaurant windows. They have a large selection of special rolls (15+).

Mmmm spicy chirashi don
Submitted Monday, January 26, 2009 - 6:18pm [Dine in]

A great place for a quick lunch. They have the best and cheapest spicy chirashi don I've ever had. They serve the sashimi on a bed of salad and sushi rice with a hint of sesame oil and spicy sauce on the side. Mmmmm so good. I also really love their gyoza, which are very big and juicy. The rest of the food there is decent for the price. They have a large selection of bento boxes and some korean dishes. Sometimes the wait for the food can be long if you go during lunch hour, but they are getting better.

Good place for pho
Submitted Monday, January 26, 2009 - 5:58pm [Dine in]

I've only tried the pho and springs rolls, which were both good. Their prices are slightly higher than the typical Vietnamese restaurant, but the quality of the food, the service and the ambiance make up for it. The restaurant is very clean and nicely decorated for a Vietnamese restaurant. I go there often and will keep going.

Orange Corner2257 West 41st Ave, Vancouver
My Favourite Bubble Tea Place
Submitted Friday, October 31, 2008 - 2:19am [Dine in]

I like Orange Corner because they use real fruit and milk in their smoothies instead of powders and syrups, which is what most bubble tea places use. Foodwise, it's a great place for snacks. Their deep fried chicken nuggets are good and I also like the satay lamb on rice. For smoothies, I like mango, fresh taro, or avocado. Their smoothies are not as thick as the other bubble tea places but they taste really delicious, so that makes up for it. I go there quite often and would recommend it.

Guu Otokomae375 Water Street, #105, Vancouver
One of my favourites
Submitted Friday, October 31, 2008 - 2:04am [Dine in]

Definitely my favorite one of the all the Guu's. I like it more than the other ones because of its more upscale decor and larger selection of food. The food and drinks are always interesting, delicious and decently priced. I love the tako yaki and deep fried brie cheese. The Kimuchi Pork Bibimbap was also very good.

Mmm Tuna Sashimi with Sesame Sauce
Submitted Friday, October 31, 2008 - 1:47am [Dine in]

Their specialties are worth the wait (ie: tuna sashimi with sesame sauce, the spicy agedashi tofu, baked eggplant, and mango and salmon roll). Everything else is also decent but not spectacular, but it's good value for their prices. Service is friendly. Good and decently priced sushi restaurants are hard to find in Vancouver. Toshi is one my favourites.
