Sakura Ichiban1405 Marine Drive, West Vancouver
I am the regular!
Submitted Sunday, July 27, 2008 - 7:58pm [Dine in]

I've been going there since 2005. The first chef wasn't that great. Now this is the third one I've known and the food quality I'd say is fairly authenic. Even though the sushi portion are not so big compare to local Canadian standard but this is what the traditional Japanese cusine all about, it's the quality not the quanitity. The seafood is always fresh and is top quality, (I'd say it for sure as I've been eating fresh seafood in my entire life, Asian like us would never touch the lower grade or frozen food.) The dragon roll is nice, all of the special roll are nice, good taste and good presentation.

Zen Japanese Restaurant2232 Marine Dr., #101, West Vancouver
Well... it's not bad but WAY over priced
Submitted Sunday, July 27, 2008 - 7:38pm [Dine in]

As an Asian and Japanese food manic myself, I have tried every Japanese restaurant in west van, and this one is not the one I would like to go back for a second. The food quality is fairly good and fresh and I can see they are trying to be an up-scale Japanese restaurant in town. However I found it a bit to be too pretendous and over price in terms of what you get. We didn't order much and not to say being full, over $300 for 2 people a dinner. If this is the case I would rather go to TOJO's at least their food quality standard is higher than this one. There is one called Ichiban on the second floor between Marine & 15th, a cozy little place owned by a Korean chef. He is the third chef I known seem the first I went there 3 years ago, the food (especially sushi) is always fresh and good, if you want some authenic sushi, this is a good place to go.

Pelican Seafood Restaurant1895 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
We are the regular!
Submitted Sunday, July 27, 2008 - 7:26pm [Dine in]

We have been there more than 15 times this year, the owner know us pretty well aready! As we are couple form HK where you can always fine the best Asian cusine, I would say Pelican is suprisely fair in terms of food quality and value. Not to mention the seafood is always fresh and is one of the most valuable and enjoyable dishes to have. (Every kind of seafood is good to order except the fish which I found a bit over priced, some time over cooked as well.) and the dim sum at lunch time is pretty good too consider we are living in a western country, this Chinese restaurant is up to the standard.

Simply Thai1211 Hamilton Street, Vancouver
It is not worth to go...
Submitted Sunday, July 27, 2008 - 7:11pm [Dine in]

As an Asian myself and have been trying many different cusine around the world, this Simply Thai is definitely westernised, over-priced and pretendous. We had order quite a few dishes and I would say none of them are qualified to be Thai food. All the dishes that we ordered had some sort of artifical sweetness in it, and they tend to use cheaper ingredients instead of the real stuff which should not be too expensive anyway. And of course the result is poor. For over $100 a dinner per head, this is so not worth it at all.
