We always have a good experience

My last visit here with my boyfriend was last night. Our steaks were cooked just the way we liked them. My boyfriend ordered the bacon wrapped filet and I ordered the teriyaki sirloin. I also ordered a skewer of prawns to go with my steak. I was expecting your regular size prawns. Nooo... these were jumbo prawns! They were very good, cooked well and not over cooked. We also ordered a side of asparagus, which wasn't so great. The ends weren't trimmed, so they were woody and stringy. They didn't have much flavour either. But that was okay, because our steak dinners were more than enough. The service was great. Our server was friendly and prompt. We've never had bad service or a bad experience with our dinners here. This place is on our regular rotation of restaurants when we're craving steak.

I like my own home made meatballs better!

Tried this place for the first time a couple of weeks ago with my boyfriend. We arrived early at around 5:30 on a Saturday evening. The place was empty except for two tables that were occupied. The service was good. Our waitress was prompt to take our order. Me and my boyfriend ordered the same thing - spaghetti with kobe beef meatballs in a spicy tomato sauce. I was anticipating that the meatballs would be just as good as the one they make at their sister restaurant (known by another name), in Yaletown. I was was told by the waitress that theirs was different. Theirs were different alright! They were way too salty for me to the point that I didn't even want to finish them. The spaghetti sauce was alright. Spicy, but the heat slowly builds. The sauce also came with a big dollop of ricotta cheese on top. I didn't really like it and I think the dish did gain anything by having it there. Don't be fooled by the prices, they seem quite reasonable from the menu, but the dishes are small in comparison. I'm glad I didn't order the pizza because they were only about 5 inches across. The decor is very nice inside. After all, this is a fairly new restaurant and it's obvious they spent a lot of money on designing it. One think that really made me mad was when I went to use the bathroom before our meal arrived. There was a male staff member "cleaning" the bathroom. Well, he didn't tell me he just mopped the floor and it was super slipper. I almost slipped and fell went I took two steps inside the door! That's something he should have mentioned. Besides that, I don't think I'll be returning as I was quite disappointed by my dinner. My boyfriend agrees that I make better spaghetti and meatballs at home!

Went here this week for dinner with my sister. We were catching a movie at 5th Ave. Cinemas and we thought since the restaurant was small, we'd be in and out pretty quickly in time for our movie. We ordered the calamari to start. It was good, crispy and chewy. The sauce it came with was nice too, but I was hoping it was going to be spicy because I like spicy food. For our entrees, we had the shrimp with cashews. The portion size of the dish was good for 4! The flavour was good but again, I was hoping for the dish to be spicy but it really wasn't at all. I think the menu rated the spiciness as two chilli peppers. It would be nice if there were more shrimp in the dish. The second entree was crispy noodles with beef (with oyster sauce). This was my favourite! The noodles were thin, crispy and not greasy. They reminded me of dry chow mein noodles except the noodles were quite a bit thinner. I suggest, if you want your order to be spicy, mention it to the waitress and I'm sure they could make it spicy for you. I think they tone down the spiciness to cater to people who are sensitive to it. This is a family run business, so the decor was very minimal. For those who complain about it not having "nice" decor, you get what you pay for and no dishes that I could see were over $12.95. If you want a fancy looking restaurant, expect to pay more. Also, for those who are picky about whether the chef is from the country the food represents, it doesn't really matter but the authenticity of the taste of the food does. Overall, our experience was pretty good and I think I'll be back.
