Didn't like the food.
Submitted Saturday, January 22, 2011 - 10:23am [Take-out]

I read the good reviews on this restaurant in dinehere. So I decided to order a couple of items for take-out. I ordered the sichuan chicken and the penang shrimp and chicken. For their prices it is certainly more expensive than most Chinese restaurant. When I got home and tried the dishes, I was very disappointed. The taste is kinda weird sweetish taste and not all all spicy. There are lots of vegetable filler and very little meat. They should have just call it sichuan vegetable or penang vegetables. Anyway, I'm quite disappointed with this meal. Not sure if this is just a one-off because I read the excellent reviews below. But then again, it makes me wonder it those are phony reviews made by the restaurant owner himself. One nice thing nice about my take out order though, it came in those little Chinese take-out box made of cardboard. Its more environmentally friendly than the styrofoam takeout box in most Chinese restaurants.

Good Taiwanese Food
Submitted Sunday, November 8, 2009 - 5:31am [Dine in]

This is a great find. Its good food in a sit-down restaurant with food court prices. In other words, its cheap and good. For starters we had the fried chicken nuggets (deep fried chicken pop in the menu) and the deep fried pork intestines. Both were yummy. For the main, we had the Barbq Pork Meal with rice. (slices of deep fried pork belly and topped with sweet garlic sauce.) and the 3 spice squid with rice. The 3 spice squid is a bit spicy for me. I generally have a low tolerance for spices. I should have heeded the spice warning on the menu. But other than that everything was great. Those 4 items costs us only 23 dollars excluding tips.

I will definitely go back and try their other offerings. I heard that their Taiwanese beef noodle soup is excellent too. Sometimes its kinda hard to put in a good review on a restaurant knowing full well that it will attract more customers which could mean a line-up. But on the other hand you want the restaurant to succeed so you can continue enjoying your meals there. Oh well..

Qoola1116 Denman Street, Vancouver
Watch out for airhole in their servings
Submitted Tuesday, June 30, 2009 - 11:42am [Dine in]

My biggest complain with Qoola is the big airhole in the middle of the cup. Its a rip off. We already paying for expensive frozen yogurt and yet the servings are coming up short.

It happened to me in their Denman location and it happened to me again in their Richmond location. I complained about it and the staff told me its normal to have a hole and it goes by weight. That is the biggest BS ive heard. Holes are not normal in a yogurt serving. It shows the server lacks training in dispensing the proper serving. As for it being the correct weight, the height of my serving is just normal. If the hole is not there then the top will be almost flat.

Anyway, the customers should watch for these holes and if u get them, return your yogurt. I dont buy the excuse that the staff is just new. If they are new then they should practice on buckets of their own yogurt not on the customers' expensive yogurt.

Live King Crab Switched to Frozen
Submitted Wednesday, April 8, 2009 - 8:33am [Dine in]

We had a king crab dinner there a couple of nights ago and I will definitely say they switched the king crab on us. What we were served was to my opinion a frozen king crab not the live one they shown us. I can tell right away. The steamed king crab meat was dry and it sticks to the shell. Hard to pull out. I have eaten a lot of king crabs before and I know the real deal. I complained to the manager but they denied it. What can I do, its their word against mine. That was a very expensive mistake on my part. I don't know how you can mark the live seafood presented to you to make sure you get served right one. Anyway, I will never patronize this restaurant again.

Horrible Chicken Adobo
Submitted Wednesday, March 4, 2009 - 8:47am [Dine in]

How can you go wrong cooking the national dish of the Philippines? It only has 3 main ingredients, soy sauce, vinegar and garlic plus the meat. But somehow Little Ongpin screwed up this dish so badly we only took a couple of bites and took the rest home. I was going to give it to our dog but decided against it. We just threw it away. We didn't want our dog to get sick. Anyway, the chicken meat is bland with an awful taste in it. It came with a brown sauce that is nowhere near the taste of a typical adobo sauce. Its funny because eventhough the meat is swimming in the sauce, it doesnt pick up the taste of the sauce at all. It has a weird bland taste. I think what they did was they just boiled a big batch of deboned chicken legs and then used the meat in all of their dishes that calls for chicken meat. They just create and mix the sauce when ordered. It's awful. The taste of the meat was as if it was sitting in the fridge for a long long time.

That was my most horrible experience so far in a Filipino restaurant. Last time I was here, our order of chicken barbq was still raw in the middle. I told myself then, that I will never come back to this restaurant. But after several months I decided to give it another try and unfortunately, I'm totally disappointed. This is definitely my last visit to this restaurant. I won't go there even if someone is treating me.

Mushy Sushi Rice
Submitted Wednesday, January 14, 2009 - 4:12am [Dine in]

Went there for dinner and we ordered the bento box, house roll and some sashimi. The sashimi pieces were small compared to other sushi places but it was fresh. However, we were very disappointed with the sushi rice. It was mushy. It could've been just a bad batch but if it was a good sushi restaurant, they will not serve a mushy sushi rice. They will just throw it away and make a new batch.

Better than Sun Sui Wah
Submitted Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 6:40am [Dine in]

We decided to try this new restaurant upon recommendation from a close friend. He said their food is better than Sun Sui Wah and the prices are lower. I was pleasantly surprised. It was true.

The place is huge. As you walk in you'll feel like you're in a five star restaurant. Huge chandelier and real leather seats. Nice ambience.

The food is really good. I can tell that the seafood is really fresh. There is no fishy smell at all. The stir-fried scallops and prawns are excellent. I enjoyed it. It has huges and very fresh scallops. Definitely well worth it. The black cod and tofu hotpot tasted really good too. They use fresh ingredients.

They have a special going on right now. Diners are given a coupon good for a free special dish that you select from a list of 10 Chef's specials. This offer is good for your next visit. The free dish is a full size dish. It's not an appetizer size.

I haven't tried their dimsum but I read a good review from one of Vancouver's food bloggers. They enjoyed their dimsum here. You can read their post below.

Definitely coming back and highly recommended.
