Ebisu on Robson827 Bute Street, Vancouver
Impressive new food!
Submitted Tuesday, September 14, 2010 - 2:44pm [Dine in]

I haven't been back here in a while and I was left wondering why. The experience I had here last week was great! I'm not sure when they changed the menu or maybe I just forgot what they had before but there were quite a few dishes me and my friends ordered this time that were delicious! Notably something they definitely didn't have before was the Miso Ramen! I love ramen and I would definitely have ordered it on my last visit but I don't recall seeing it on the menu. So I gave it a go and it was really good! My friends also thought it was pretty good but they said it was a bit too small which I didn't mind because who wants to stuff up on ramen when there's so much else to eat? The cook-if-yourself beef tongue was a neat quirk and quite simple yet tasty. We had a few of the traditional dishes as well like the fried chicken and mentai udon, pretty good still.
They were very busy but my waitress was really nice and smiling which is a an improvement from last time, although we weren't a huge party like last time so maybe she was not as flustered.
Definitely will need to make a mental note to come back more often as places like this are perfect for me!

Manzo Itamae Japanese Restaurant9020 Capstan Way, #120, Richmond
Manzo's expansion nothing like the original!
Submitted Tuesday, September 14, 2010 - 2:33pm [Dine in]

So me and my friend decided to go Manzo last night but were sad to see that they were closed last night so we decided to try their 2nd location. When we first walked in we were pleasantly surprised that the decor was totally different from the tightly-knit wooden decor from the original place, instead replaced with dark black lacquer and much more spacious. Nice change, unfortunately everything that we loved about the original manzo was not to be found here.

It was quite busy for a Monday but the lack of service was offensive. They brought out the customary green tea at the beginning but that was about all we saw of our server. We had to flag a busboy down so that he could go and find our server, she then came back quite a while later to take our order then disappeared again. Other staff brought us our food but when it came time that I wanted to order 1 more noodle dish so that I could eat it with the meat dish on my table, I could not get anyone's attention which was very frustrating! By the time I finally waved down another random person my meat was already all cold and I did not feel like ordering anymore which is a pity, the food was not bad but definitely overpriced for Richmond standards. The original Manzo is pretty expensive as well but the service makes up for it! I don't think I could come back here again.

Afghan Horsemen Restaurant, The1833 Anderson Street, #202, Vancouver
Mediocre Food - Great Atmosphere!
Submitted Tuesday, March 10, 2009 - 6:03pm [Dine in]

Went here last weekend on a double date. The setting was perfect, dimly lit and comfortable. Huge pillows to lay back on and very cool to have to sit on the floor to eat!

The service was pretty solid, friendly waitress.

The food, it was our first time there so we asked the waitress to recommend some things. She recommended we get the combo platter so we can try a bit of everything. It came with an assortment of meats which are reminiscent of Greek food. There were these butter-fried wedges of potatoes that were pretty good. The lamb was tender and moist but the rest of the platter wasn't that great, the kebobs were a tad too dry.

The value, I find is quite overpriced. The platter did not have as much meat as I expected, a couple of chicken skewers and some lamb shanks then surrounded by many potatoes and some cabbage wrapped rice for $50?? Seems like they try to stuff you full with carbs and call it a night.

It was quite a welcome experience to dine in that style but I don't think I would return as the food reminds me of eating at a Greek restaurant but paying triple the prices for sitting on the pillows.

Fassil Ethiopian Restaurant736 East Broadway, Unit 5, Vancouver
Unique Experience
Submitted Wednesday, March 4, 2009 - 2:39pm [Dine in]

I've never had Ethiopian food before (as it seems with most of the reviewers haha) and I was in for a different experience!

The waiter that served us turned out to also be the chef and the owner! He was a very, very friendly jolly guy but the small issue that this possesses is that when he goes in to cook our food there's nobody else to get us anything else we need (water, napkins, etc.) Me and my friends told him it was our first time here and he was more than willing to explain how everything works! Basically you order whatever you like, choosing between meats and fish. I had no idea what to get so I just asked him to recommend and make whatever is good for the 4 of us!

I can't even remember what I had anymore but it was really good! (Just ask the boss to recommend you the favourites if your not sure either) The sauces and flavours were savoury delicious and the meat was quite tender! The fish was a little dry but improvise by scooping some of the sauce from the other dish (I believe it was the spicy beef) and voila! The sour bread you roll it in was not really my preference but it was still pretty good and I can easily imagine how others would really enjoy the meal! It's interesting that you basically eat everything with your hands only, you can appreciate this different method of dining instead of the regular cutlery you get anywhere else.

The decor was very bland, almost feels family-like but nothing to write home about. There's some pictures framed up along the walls and you kind of see the kitchen.

This is just my personal opinion but it felt pretty expensive for the food that you get and they didn't spend any money on renovations or any other staff that's for sure. It's about $10+ per dish and it's not that big. Our bill came out to over $70 and for a handful of dough and meat.

I'm not sure if I would come as a regular but it's a neat place to take people that have never had Ethiopian food before! Definitely worth a try just for the novel experience!

Dragon Ball Tea House1007 W King Edward, Vancouver
Great hole-in-the-wall BBT!
Submitted Wednesday, March 4, 2009 - 2:07pm [Dine in]

I've heard about this place a few times from my sister but never knew exactly where it was and didn't think it was worth my time to go hunting for it since I rarely go in that area.

It happens that my guy friend lives near there and after dinner at his place he asked if I wanted to go for a drink. He's walking distance from this place and now that I've tried it, I regret not having made my way there sooner! I had the blueberry milk tea, it was the best bubbletea I've had in Vancouver! I've often went to Taiwan and this is as close as it gets to the real thing!

Service was as good as it can get considering it's just over the counter ordering and you get a number.

The place itself looks old and small seating maybe 10 people max but most of the people sitting there were just waiting for their drink. Not really a sit down and chill kind of place.

I will definitely try to come here more often even though it's out of my way most of the time!

Ebisu in Richmond8111 Ackroyd Road, #100, Richmond
Nice Alternative
Submitted Tuesday, March 3, 2009 - 10:59pm [Dine in]

I've been to the Ebisu in Downtown many times and am totally in love with it so when I saw "Ebisu in Richmond" boasting that big red sign while driving down No. 3 road I swung in for an early dinner hoping to get the same experience!

Unfortunately that was not to be, not that it's to bash them but I came in with the same expectations as Ebisu Robson otherwise I would have been quite content.

The food is comparable and they actually have some different dishes that are quite tasty that they don't have at the other location like the Unagi Cheese Motoyaki (I think that's what it's called) ... the Cheese Yakitory is not as cheesy in comparison, actually the cheese wasn't even melted yet. The other dishes are pretty similar and tasted pretty good. The wings here are more flavourful but smaller.

Service was average, nothing out of the norm for a Richmond located restaurant. I had to ask a few times for more water and I noticed the waiter never mentions what dish they are placing down on my table so I had to ask a couple times because I didn't recognize the dishes.
But what I seriously have a qualm with is the lack of drink selection! They practically have NOTHING from the Downtown location, no Golden Balls (My absolute fave and another reason why I dig Ebisu Robson) or ANY cocktail. They only carry the basics, Vodka + OJ, Gin & Tonic ... boring!

Value is "ok" but they should make it a bit cheaper considering it's Richmond and not Downtown core.

Ambiance: Well this is where the similarities end. This place almost has nothing in common with the other Ebisu. There's only one TV in the front. Another that's practically hidden behind some pillars that no one can see. The music can be best described as 'if you wanted put somebody to sleep.' It's like slow melodic boring (call it soothing if you will) tunes *yawn*

This spot is a nice alternative if your too lazy to make the trip across 2 bridges. If you compare this place to other Richmond Japanese restaurants they would have recieved much better ratings from me but they call this place Ebisu so I would have hoped they lived up to their name! The beer & oyster special is the same deal as DT which is awesome and one of the reasons that I would end up here since I live much closer to this location than DT.

Best Dine-Out this Year!
Submitted Tuesday, March 3, 2009 - 10:35pm [Dine in]

Been lurking on this site for a while now and always find some helpful reviews on here so I decided to write about my Dine-Out experience here as it was really very impressive!

The place was hard to find on a dark rainy day as it's wedged between a bunch of residential buildings.

Service was very good, not as prompt as some other fine-dining establishments, also wasn't very helpful with the wine recommendations but she came by often enough without having to ever ask.

The food was as the rating indicates, Incredible! I can't imagine what the food would be like sans Dine-Out if even this cheap taster menu was that good! I had the roasted rabbit which had a delicious foam sauce but it did rely on the sauce a lot, not that it's a bad thing. My guy-friend had the red-wine reduction Deer steak which he described was cooked perfectly and very flavourful! I tried some of it and he was completely right!

The price considering it's Dine-Out Vancouver was very reasonable but the regular menu is pretty expensive!

Ambiance was very cozy, nice warm little spot for romantic and formal dinners.

When I have a fatter wallet this will definitely be my first choice! I can't wait to go back!
