Butcher’s Best Meat6060 Minoru Boulevard, #1778, Richmond
Pretty good
Submitted Monday, August 22, 2011 - 12:34pm [Dine in]

I really didn't think mall food could be good. I am surprised it's really good.

I went in the store because I happened to pass by and was too lazy to drive somewhere else to get my BBQ meat fix. The prices on the menu seem pretty fair even though their rent in the mall must be high. Their food is actually cheaper than what you get at the food court.

The storefront is clean and nice. Most people buy takeout. There's also plenty of seats for you to sit down and enjoy your meal.

Food tastes great. Decent portion. Duck is meaty not bony. I love it.

Hype
Submitted Monday, August 22, 2011 - 10:32am [Dine in]

I went to this place because of the good reviews on this site. It turned out to be such a hype. Meat doesn't taste bad, but it certainly doesn't wow me and is NOT the best.

It just tastes very generic but it's a tad more expensive than any other place selling BBQ meat.

The store is dingy looking. I really don't see why it should be more expensive. won't be back.

Cheap eats
Submitted Monday, August 22, 2011 - 10:13am [Dine in]

The restaurant is ugly looking but you are here for cheap eats.

Price is right and portion is big. One plate can feed 2 people. You might need to take it home, it's a lot of food if you order one plate for each person.

The congee is full of ingredients. It probably has the most ingredients than any other place. And it's big and cheap. Can't complain.

Service is random. Some waitresses are friendly and helpful, some are just not doing their jobs.

I don't know why people are complaining so much. Gees, they are giving you big portion and small price, meaning it's not a fine dining place. It's almost like a food court but cheaper. Try to find cheap eats that can really fill you up in downtown. You can't.

Worse than McDonald's
Submitted Monday, August 22, 2011 - 9:53am [Dine in]

I had one expensive burger with soggy fries. It tastes worse than McDonald's but way more expensive than the Golden Arch. Why?

I was still hungry after the meal. Small portion. Won't be back.

The bun is the worst, it looks saggy and ugly. It just doesn't look like an expensive gourmet burger.

I kind of like it
Submitted Monday, August 22, 2011 - 9:41am [Dine in]

The sandwich is not bad. Although I was hoping they actually grilled the chicken but it's not grilled. Sandwich is decent size and fair priced. If you come to this food court and can't eat a big plate of meat on rice or noodles, the Vietnamese sandwich from Basil Leaf is a good option.

Aberdeen Centre food court is bright, spacious, and clean enough. I like tons of natural light coming in through the big windows. I feel relaxed sitting there. If you want to grab some cheap eats, this food court is probably the most comfy place to sit down for cheap eats.

Benkei Ramen1741 Robson St, Vancouver
small portion enough for ladies not men
Submitted Monday, December 27, 2010 - 12:00am [Dine in]

Service is friendly. They don't rush you. Seating is comfy enough, much more comfortable than Kintaro. Even though the house is full, I can manage to get waitresses' attention. Ambiance is pleasant enough for a place to grab a quick bite. However the portion of your noodles is really small.

Noodles taste good enough. It's not bad. It's not out of the world either. The portion is just like a bag of instant noodles you have at home. Toppings are in small portion as well. Even soup just barely covers the noodles. LOL! What's up with that? Soup is just water, why so cheap? Kintaro gives you more noodles and toppings for sure.

I ordered extra toppings for my ramen but the portion of each extra toppings is like one bite.

A bowl of noodles here is more like a snack than a meal, very skimpy. It can probably make a skinny girl feel full. If you are a dude, you need to order side dishes to be full. Don't order extra toppings, it's lame, each topping is only one small bite. Just order side dish if you are afraid that the noodles won't keep you full.

If you are in the area, then it's ok to come in and grab a bite. It's not worth your effort driving all the way to this place for noodles. I had better ramen than this. I would say their ramen is generic.

Excellent Milk Tea
Submitted Saturday, September 25, 2010 - 12:19am [Dine in]

This is a small shop at Yaohan food court. They serve a lot of drinks, sandwiches and baked goods. I love their milk tea. It has a good amount of tea flavor. It's not too sweet or bitter. It's just right, perfect. Their other drinks are great too. But their milk tea is the best. You have to try it. You won't regret it.

Service is great. The ladies are friendly. I like their attention to details like giving customers solid paper cups with cup sleeves (just like any professional coffee shop such as Starbucks) so you would be able to hold it and not get your hands burned. That's good customer service. I don't know about you. I had a food vendor giving me a paper cup without a sleeve once, I almost couldn't make it to the table because it's so hot. Certainly that didn't make me want to go back. I also hate it when vendors serving coffee with foam cups. So I really appreciate it when Kampery Coffee Chateau provides good service and attention to details. That always makes me want to go back.

It is certainly not expensive. Good value.

It's Yaohan food court. So the ambiance is pretty much non-existent but at least it is clean (for a food court) and the place is always busy.

They did everything right
Submitted Friday, September 10, 2010 - 1:41am [Dine in]

This place is a gem. I love to come here. It's like a treat.

Food: The baked goods are so good. It's delicious. The cakes are amazing. I like the pastry that looks like an eclair, it also has cream in it. It's probably called eclair, I can't remember. I haven't had anything that I don't like at Diplomat. I just can't find a thing to complain about. I am going to try some bread in the future.

Service: I think they are very nice. Sometimes I hesitate what I want to get but they are very patient with me. Love them!

Value: The items are not cheap but they are so worth it if you want to get it right. Sure you can get a cheaper tiramisu cake somewhere else but it will not taste as good as diplomat, it won't even be close. I always find myself coming back to Diplomat for something that's made right and perfectly.

Ambiance: It has moved to this location for a while now, 1 year or 2 years? I can't remember. This location is so much nicer than their old location. It's in a new building, nice parking space and a lot more seats for customers. You can also sit outside. The store looks cute and clean. I like it a lot.

I used to hear people say nice things about Diplomat. I was skeptical. Now I am a true believer.

Pho Queen8368 Capstan Way, #1318, Richmond
Stingy and Dingy
Submitted Saturday, August 21, 2010 - 9:40pm [Dine in]

Food: The food doesn't taste bad. It's not outstanding either. It's just average taste, very generic taste of Vietnamese food. You could get the similar food anywhere else. You won't miss a thing.

The portion is small, way small. It's laughable. When I saw the portion, I just shook my head and decided to treat it like a small meal. And I was planning where to get snacks and more stuff to eat somewhere else after Pho Queen while I was chowing down the food here. I didn't even want to order more at Pho Queen because it's just lame for a restaurant to be cheap about portion especially a "hole in the wall" place. Who knew how many more we had to order in order to be full. It's just ridiculous to spend a lot of money for very common and inexpensive ingredients at a "hole in the wall" place. We might as well spend our money somewhere else. No wonder there's not a lot of customers at Pho Queen.

Service: Service is friendly. The only good thing about this place is that they are friendly enough.

Ambiance: It is not good. The restaurant is ugly with ugly furniture and a little trash on floor. Table is clean though, no grease. It's just a very tacky place. You really have to rely on whether you like the food or not to decide if you want to come back.

Small portion means no returning customers. Duh! Unless you are selling kick ass ambiance like great view and interior decor, it's not wise to cheap out on portion as a mom and pop "hole in the wall" place. You have to give people a reason to return.

Banzai Sushi House8251 Westminster Highway, Richmond
oh God
Submitted Thursday, July 29, 2010 - 3:00pm [Dine in]

After I wrote my review, my friend told me he got a little sick after having Banzai sashimi. Agh! It's not serious but I won't describe the details to turn you off. I had rolls and he had lots sashimi. That explains why I am safe.

I guess there is no point to go back if food doesn't sit well in your tummy. I knew it was not ideal when I saw how dingy the place was and the square was kind of dirty. Note to yourself: don't eat sashimi from an unclean restaurant. I think you have to be kind of picky about the cleanness of restaurant especially if they serve uncooked food.

Kam Do8391 Alexandra Road, #1140, Richmond
dirty place, lousy parking, so-so food
Submitted Thursday, July 29, 2010 - 2:15pm [Dine in]

I am not a food snob. I like big bargains and good value just like everybody else. But there are times you really have to think about it that if this is really worth your time and effort.

Food: Food tastes so so. It's very average. It tastes just like every other HK food joint. Nothing they cook is better than other places. Nothing stands out. You could have gone to other HK food joints to get the same food.

Service: Service is no nonsense. They are neither friendly nor mean. They take your order and bring you food. That's it.

Value: If big portion alone means great value, then Kam Do does offer good value. Portion is indeed big. But if you look at the hassle you have to go through (pigeon poops on the ground in this square, lousy parking, sitting in a dirty place), you ask yourself if this is worth it especially the food just tastes like every other HK restaurant or vendor would serve you.

Ambiance: The restaurant is dirty, greasy tables and chairs. It's really not comfortable. There is no ambiance.

Besides pigeon poops on the sidewalk, the parking is a hassle. There's only a few parking space in that square. If you can't find one, you go for street parking which is paid parking. Certainly street parking in Richmond is way cheaper than Vancouver downtown, however, you need to add parking fee to your bill to see if this is still a bargain since people come here mainly for cheap eats not some awesome dish you can't get it anywhere else. If you carpool with your group, then it makes sense. If everyone in your group drives their cars and pays for street parking to get their cheap eats, is it still a bargain?

I think all the store owners in that square should ask their property management company to power wash the ground. That square is gross. There's dry pigeon poops on the sidewalk. Come on! I am sure they know pigeon poop is health hazard. It shouldn't be taken lightly. Plus it turns customers off.

This place is for students who can't even cook an egg or renters who don't have a functional kitchen. It's much more comfortable to cook something in your own kitchen and eat in your own comfort home than going through all the troubles (parking +bird poops) to eat so-so food in a dirty place.

Great place to sit down and hang out with your friends
Submitted Thursday, July 29, 2010 - 1:34am [Dine in]

I have been here a few times. I think this place deserves a shout out.

Food: It's average. Nothing stands out. You won't crave for their dishes because they are just so so. Waffles are good enough, I think.

Service: It's all right. Service is a little bit slow but they are not impolite or anything.

Value: It's OK. Really. You come here more for a comfy place to sit down and chat with your friends while you can get a drink and some bites that taste all right. If you want variety of dishes, you would go to other places that might not be good for having a private conversation.

Ambiance: The ambiance is the best part of this place. It is comfortable and cozy.

From outside, it looks hideous. I understand they want that rustic look. But seriously, the front looks really tacky. It scares customers away. It looks like two windows in a glass window. The owner needs to change it. That ugly storefront doesn't do their business any good. Even just a plain normal front door is better than that wacky thing. If it's not my friend recommending me to go there, I would never have stepped inside the store just by looking at the storefront.

Once you walk in, it's like a rustic tea room or farm house with dim light. It's actually not bad inside. It's kind of cozy. Seating is great and spacious. It's like a booth. So you can have full privacy. The seating arrangement is not cramped so people probably can't hear your conversation unless you are loud. The place is quiet and peaceful when it's not during peak hours.

It's located in a square that looks kind of worn out. However, if you can get over the worn out square and tacky storefront, once you walk inside the cafe, you will feel quite cozy.

The reason why I like this place and want to see them do well is because it's hard to find a comfortable place to sit down in Vancouver these days. Many restaurants go cheap on seating. They rent a tiny space and put way too many tables in there. It's cramped and miserable, customers have no privacy. You get claustrophobia and cant' even relax. It defeats the purpose of dining out. I have even seen corporate stores doing that, one Starbucks on West 4th is unbelievable small. Customers are basically on top of each other. What a shame. And Pearl Castle is also a horrible place to have a conversation. A few times I went there, I was forced to listen to other customers' lame conversation. It made me want to stab myself with a fork.

I am glad someone still has some decency to let you sit in a decent space. I think Leisure Tea and Coffee definitely deserves some credits.

Great snacks and meals
Submitted Wednesday, July 28, 2010 - 1:29am [Dine in]

There are a few things they do very well such as meals and snacks. And you can't seem to find other places that can do better. The meals and snacks are pretty authentic. The drinks, however, are average. They just taste like any other bubble tea at other stores. Not better or worse, it just doesn't stand out. I can pretty much get my tea somewhere else. I don't have to come back here but I keep coming back for meals and snacks.

Overall, I still think this store is a gem because it has some great dishes. I can't find it as good and authentic as Yuen Yuen's anywhere else. Meals and snacks are well priced, very reasonable. The price for those drinks is like other stores, ranging from 3 to 5 bucks depending on what you order, neither cheap nor more expensive.

It is jam packed after school when high school kids go there to grab a drink. Now it's summer, no school, no more long line in the afternoon.

Service is a little bit slow. Sometimes they mess up your order but they are friendly all right.

The store is not nice looking but it's not that bad. Takeout is better. It's cramped inside. The only time you want to sit in there is when there's not a lot of customers.

Shabusen Yakiniku House2993 Granville Street, Vancouver
great experience
Submitted Friday, July 16, 2010 - 6:12pm [Dine in]

I went to Shabusen for lunch. It's like $13 per person for all you can eat (sushi + Korean BBQ). After you add HST, it's about $14.55 per person + tips. I have to say this lunch is definitely worth it.

Food: It's fresh enough. Nothing tastes bad or bothers you. I like chicken and spicy pork for BBQ. The beef slices for BBQ might not be the best quality of meat. But they are Ok. There's a limit on sashimi (8 pieces per person) but it's fine by me. I was busy working on BBQ anyway. There's other stuff you might want to order and work on. Some side dishes are great like tempura and croquette. Sushi and sashimi are decent and fresh enough.

Service: It's fast enough. They are very polite. I am grateful for their politeness because I have seen many mean servers at other restaurants that make me not want to return. It's such a breeze of fresh air that there are good servers at Shabusen.

Value: Well, it's all you can eat. You will never leave there hungry or half full. You get to have Korean BBQ and sushi at the same time. The quality of food is good enough. Some tastes pretty good and some are average.

Ambiance: I like the seating arrangement a lot. You get to sit next to the big window and look outside. The tables are not too close to each other. So it's not cramped and you have full privacy. People at the next table won't even be able to hear your conversation unless you are loud. I like the big space a lot because there's so many cramped restaurants in Vancouver that make me miserable. It's nice to be in a restaurant that they are not stingy about space.

Over all, I had a great dining experience. $14.55 can't get you a lot of varieties and food in most restaurants in Vancouver. But you can get both here plus good service and decent seating. It's really worth your money.

PS: This review is based on whether the quality reflects the price or not. I don't use fine dining standard to pick apart any inexpensive restaurant.

Smallest bowl of ramen you will ever find
Submitted Wednesday, February 3, 2010 - 2:07am [Dine in]

This is by far the smallest bowl of ramen you will ever find. The bowl is very small. There is no seat. You stand there next to a bar table and finish your ramen. It's just ridiculous.

Service is friendly.

They are $5.75 to $6.75. Each ramen comes with the basic topping of seaweed, veggies and green onions. $5.75 ramen is just a tiny bowl of veggie noodles that only has seaweed, green onion, and veggies. No meat. You pay $1 for each extra toppings. $6.75 is Ton ramen with pork (pork bone soup base) but it's not available until Feb 9th.

If you think about it. It's very expensive. The noodle dish is really just child size. If you add extra toppings like egg, bamboo shoot, corn (these are what you can find as basic toppings already come with your ramen at Gmen and/or Kitaro, no extra charge) that will make your ramen $10. You can spend LESS amount of money in a ramen restaurant that gives you seats, service and bigger bowl of noodles. Remind you Shoryumen gives you a very small bowl, half of the size that G-men or Kintaro offers. It's $8.50 at Gmen, it's $7.50 at Kintaro. If you want the as many toppings as Gmen's ramen or Kintaro's ramen, you will spend $10 for street food without seating.

How about the taste? So so. The noodles taste like packaged noodles from supermarket. I don't believe they make their own noodles like Kintaro. It's NOT the al dente ramen noodles ramen fans are looking for. Seriously. Soup base tastes like soup mix from as well. I think the supermarket ramen pack tastes better than this. You can do yourself a favor, take a trip to Yaoham and buy Japanese ramen pack, the fresh kind at the fridge section not the instant kind.

Ambiance is horrible. There is no seat for you to eat your ramen. It's abusive and cheap. You either stand next to the counter eating noodles or go to the very small hut next to the food trailer. You can eat noodles in that empty hut with no seats, that really makes customers look like refugees. Very uncivilized. We are in Richmond, not super crowded and expensive Tokyo, why is there a problem to give customers seats and make them comfortable??? Richmond is a suburb for God's sake.

The way I see it is that this is a novelty food vendor. It won't last. I really don't appreciate their business practice. I find it greedy and disrespectful.

tourist bread
Submitted Sunday, January 31, 2010 - 6:05pm [Dine in]

Oh ya! I visited this place once. Long time ago, more than 2.5 years ago? The guy only baked one kind of bread. Nothing else. The bread sucked. It's very hard, too hard to chew. On the second day, it's hard like a rock. If you reheat it to soften the bread, it will not work. You basically have to dunk it in soup or sauce to eat it.

One thing I hate about this place is inconsistent pricing. It's very unprofessional and ghetto. I paid 10 bucks for a lousy bread loaf. Then I found out my friend bought it for 5 bucks. I was not happy. $10 bucks for a horrible and very dry bread loaf is really over priced. What's up with me paying more than my friend? Did the owner think I looked like a tourist to him therefore he charged me more? If my friend got a smaller bread, then why didn't the owner tell me I could choose between different sizes? He didn't give me any options. Everything looked the same in that store, same bread, same size. The guy just grabbed one and sold $10 to me. I would rather get a smaller one so I wouldn't have to throw a $10 big loaf away, it would make me feel better I only threw away a $5 hard rock away. It's really not edible on the second day.

The store front looks kind of interesting. That's about it. It's really a tourist trap. They are selling tourist breads to poor tourists who are curious about everything.

Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle4151 Hazelbridge way, 2800, Richmond
So So
Submitted Thursday, January 7, 2010 - 5:57pm [Dine in]

If you thinking dining out is all about the food, food only, then don't come here. You wouldn't think it's worth it. Beef noodle tastes good enough but not 11 dollar good. The food itself won't justify the price for you. It's just beef noodles, average size and above average taste. That just tells you that it doesn't take a champion to make good beef noodles.

Beef noodle is very COMMON comfort food in Taiwan. Just like pasta in Italy, it doesn't take a champion to make excellent pasta dishes. Every self respect Italian mama can make great pasta. There is no such a thing as 11 dollar worth of beef noodles. A lot of people can make awesome beef noodles.

If you think dining out is also about ambiance, decor, service, and so on. Then don't come here when there is still a line. When there is a line, your experience can be described as long wait and rushed. You are given bills and hinted you should go as soon as you put down chopsticks. You are not going to have a relaxed meal in a brand new and clean restaurant with big windows. It would be nicer if you could take your time to finish your meal in a more relaxed manner and be able to chill a couple of minutes in your seat after your meal. You know what I mean.

So come here when there is no line. You will enjoy your meal and think it's worth it.

Aoyama Cafe4151 Hazelbridge Way, Unit 1008, Richmond
mediocre food, bad service
Submitted Saturday, January 2, 2010 - 11:46am [Dine in]

I take a trip to Aoyama Coffee to try Japanese corporate coffee. I wonder if it's better or worse than Starbucks or Waves. I am very disappointed.

The coffee just tastes like any other coffee if not worse. The plain coffee at Aoyama is the same price as specialty coffee at Starbucks and Waves, that makes Aoyama more expensive than Starbucks and Waves. And it just tastes like average coffee, nothing special, not worth the price.

The cafe is divided by two sections - coffee shop and dining area. It looks OK from outside. But the decor of the dining area is not that great looking if you sit inside. It looks like one of those diners except it's brand new. I don't know if it's lighting or carpet that makes it dinner-ish. I do like the seating arrangement because it's roomy enough and not cramped like those cheapskate restaurants (in Vancouver) trying to fit more tables in a small space. So, you do have some space and privacy while you dine in this cafe. To make you feel better, the chairs are comfortable. LOL!

Too bad the products suck. The sandwiches taste like what you can make it at home but you can probably do better.

Their so called Euro-Japanese fusion food (pasta, curry, whatever) is nothing more than home cook food. They are made with common, inexpensive, everyday ingredients. They sell it like $12.99 for pasta and curry. That's just silly. In Los Angeles, there's plenty of Japanese owned/operated restaurants serving this type of food and most customers are poor students and people who want to grab inexpensive bites because we all know how easy it is to make simple pasta and curry.

The service is horrible. The staffers have major attitude. I mean if they want to run a Japanese cafe, they should learn Japanese hospitality first. The staffers look like the job is beneath them. They act like they are very unwilling and they just don't care about customer service. Somebody needs to tell them that they are working in a cafe in Richmond not a hipster club in New York. They need to drop their attitude, wake up and look around - most customers are old couples and tired parents with children. There is nothing hip about this cafe. If you do your job and act professional, you will actually be respected. Acting like you are too cool for your job only makes you look like a low self-esteem clueless idiot.

If the service was any good, it could probably justify the price? maybe for some people??? Since the coffee is not any better than competitors' but more expensive, food is mediocre, and service is bad, the whole experience is kind of uncomfortable, what's the point of being here? It's really not a pleasant experience.

By the way, I hope their manager train their staffers not to stare at customers while they have nothing better to do. It's rude. Customers are not your zoo animals. You don't stare at them and check them out head to toe especially when they just look like average everyday people not someone dressing like drag queen begging for attention. In the States, staffers don't even stare at you if you do look like a drag queen, they just mind their own business and act professional.

Takeya Sushi8671 No.1 Road, Richmond
pathetic tiny portion
Submitted Monday, December 28, 2009 - 2:12pm [Dine in]

Takeya is a hole in the wall restaurant that serves sushi and Japanese home food/comfort food.

Sushi is fresh enough. Portions for cooked food are small, tiny. It's pathetic. The taste of cooked food is all right but nothing stands out. The average taste doesn't justify the small portion and the price AT ALL.

Service is polite. I got my food quick enough. It's also because they don't have a lot of customers anyway. It must be the lousy value that makes customers not want to return.

From outside, it looks like a cheesy hole in the wall restaurant. Inside, it looks like a canteen. You probably prefer to take out than dine in, the place just looks depressing. Since it's very uncomfortable dining in Takeya, ambiance is not existing at all, you really expect food to be solid because you are certainly not paying for ambiance. But what you get is really small portions of food only enough for a skinny girl (maybe).

The money you spend here to be full is more than enough to dine in a fancier restaurant with way better food and decor in Richmond. There is no point spending money here while you can spend the same amount of money somewhere else for more food, better food and better decor/ambiance.

You can lecture people all day about sushi quality reflects the price. But the comfort food/home food/cooked food is supposed to be inexpensive because the ingredients are cheap and Takeya has no ambiance and no presentation. There is no reason to be skimpy on portion like a cheapskate.

To be honest the sushi quality is just ok not the best or even top 5 I have. Sushi rolls are small so each slice is very thin. Any thinner you wouldn't be able to pick up with a chopstick, lol!

Basically you spend lots money in a crappy beat up shop for average food. It only works for locals who don't want to drive more than 2 blocks for food.

Going Downhill
Submitted Tuesday, December 22, 2009 - 4:35pm [Dine in]

I used to love their sushi, not anymore. The food quality has gone downhill.

They use frozen surf clam now in sushi, sashimi, and chirashi dishes. That's really lame. I can get frozen surf clam myself from the supermarket at Yaohan. It's cheap. Why do I bother to go to a sushi restaurant for frozen surf clam?

The portion just gets smaller after their recent renovation. The price has also gone up a little after renovation. Have you seen their sushi rolls? Each slice is so thin, I think that's the thinnest slice of sushi roll I have ever seen. LOL!

I rather they still give you good food without the renovation. True, the restaurant looks a lot better and it is more comfortable to sit in after the renovation. But it's not like it's so luxurious you will come here just for the ambiance. You know what I mean. It's just an average looking restaurant. It's not as beat up looking as it used to be. But, the look is just average.
