Tojo's Restaurant1133 W Broadway, Vancouver
No Go At Tojo's
Submitted Sunday, January 17, 2010 - 12:53am [Dine in]

Being a born and raised Vancouverite and having heard about Tojo's for years and years, I finally had the chance to go with a group of friends this evening. I was very sadly disappointed. First of all, the atmosphere reminded me of being in an all-you-can-eat style restaurant-- tired decor, way too huge for a supposed fine dining experience. It lacked intimacy and felt too airport-ish.

Next-- the food. Everyone had varying omakase-- vegetarian ($55), seafood only ($60), $80 and $110. The food, while tasty enough, was terribly overpriced and there was no innovation here, especially in the sushi course. The food also seemed tired-- pumped out way too many times, lacking edge.

Service was friendly but inconsistent-- courses arrived sporadically, with some diners lacking courses only to receive them a while later after others had already finished theirs.

Highlights were the eggplant wrapped in a thin wooden parcel, the sablefish and the black sesame panna cotta. Lowlights were, well, everything else--all the fish was fresh and well prepared, but, again, lacking in spark or innovation. You can find fresh fish in many other Japanese food restaurants in Vancouver, without the hefty pricetag.

Tojo's, as my husband noted, is like the Hard Rock Cafe of Japanese food in Vancouver-- a tourist trap, a place that has lost its authenticity along the way. There are way better places to experience well-prepared and delicious Japanese food in Vancouver-- Toshi's, for example.

Certainly wouldn't go back again, especially for the price.

Renovation
Tandoori King8017 Fraser Street, Vancouver
I Dream Of This Place
Submitted Wednesday, August 20, 2008 - 5:19pm [Dine in]

well i've never actually dreamed of Tandoori King but it was recommended to me by Indian food nuts and i have been converted. Note also-- they DELIVER! I live fairly far away (30 minutes drive) from their location so i was very excited to learn i could order online with credit card and 1 hour later, hot Indian food! on last visit we ordered garlic nan, the spicy and tangy prawn vindaloo, aloo gobi (cauliflower,potatoes,onion, tomato and spices), mutter paneer (green peas, and homemade cheese squares) and the malai kofta (mixed vegetables and grated cheese balls in cream sauce) with the pulao rice. very delicious and we will be back again as soon as we allow ourselves!

Sala Thai3364 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Established Thai spot features great food and excellent service
Submitted Sunday, April 13, 2008 - 11:15pm [Dine in]

Been going to Sala Thai for years and years with family. Solid, delicious food and great friendly service. The decor is super-dated in a late 80s sort of way, but not a major concern. Stuffed chicken wings, duck red curry, pad thai, swimming rama and garlic beef are all standouts. Curries, pad thai and many other dishes can be made vegetarian very easily. Fun drink specials too, and fragrant and yummy coconut rice. The new location has a nicer atmosphere, could be fun for a big old wedding; I'm happy to recommend both places.

Raga Restaurant1177 W Broadway, Vancouver
Ragatini
Submitted Sunday, April 13, 2008 - 11:06pm [Dine in]

Yep, I had to try the drink special. Fruity with grapefruit and something tropical, with some booze too... and a classic cherry on a plastic sword. Wanted to order everything with "Raga" in the title and after scanning the very extensive menu, totally possible and likely delicious. Instead: hot and fresh naan bread, and the dishes were all very good: on the vegetarian tip, aloo ghobi, malai kofta, saag paneer, and an amazing selection of meat dishes: butter chicken, prawn masala. I think it's tough to go wrong when ordering at Raga. For dessert, a perfect honey-soaked party ball with a sprinkle of almonds. The service was friendly, warm and efficient; it was a first time visit and we'll definitely be back.

Kamei Royale1030 W Georgia Street, #211, Vancouver
Pleasant, relaxed, welcoming and delicious!
Submitted Monday, April 7, 2008 - 10:34pm [Dine in]

We had a great time, excellent and attentive service and thoroughly extensive menu of interesting items to choose from, including vegetarian options. Garlic pepper tuna tataki, mango roll, tempura sweet potato sticks with trio of dipping sauce, a delicious and artfully displayed gommae, excellent black cod, much fresh sushi and good drinks. Relaxed atmosphere, clean and comfortable with private tatami rooms and very friendly staff. Recommended for when you want an artful sushi experience, and don't mind paying more for a dinner out with friends! Deep fried tempura ice cream was on the menu for dessert but we were all too full to partake.
