Great vegetarian food
Submitted Saturday, October 3, 2009 - 4:29pm [Dine in]

I love the variety of the food offered here. Buffet or no buffet, there's a lot to choose from. The tandoor dishes are a personal favourite as I myself am a carnivore and it doesn't remind me of the fact that I'm not eating meat! The flavours are great, spices are great, just wished their portions reflected the price a bit more. I remember when it first opened the prices were phenomenal! Then they bumped them up so high it seems almost wrong to charge that much and get so little...not even a small bowl of rice with the tandoor dishes!
The service is decent, better than at most other Indian restaurants...the ambiance is also decent, it's certainly an authentic Indian experience, that's how it's set up back there. Comfy chairs and tables and such would be nice though.

Good Food, good Value
Submitted Saturday, October 3, 2009 - 4:11pm [Dine in]

Been here a few times, food's good, service is decent and I'd say it's pretty good value for your dollar. I can't speak to authenticity or anything, but everything tastes good. The homemade sauces are certainly tops! (Chipotle and the peanuty one are my favs!)
I agree with some other posters, this isn't an awesome place to go if it's just before closing...but then again, most places aren't!
All in all, decent food, but there are no bells or whistles. The servers are decent, all very nice. The food is quick to get to the table and the place is clean and inviting. For about $2 a taco, it's worth it.

Best shawarma in town!
Submitted Thursday, December 4, 2008 - 11:21pm [Dine in]

I love this place! As far as I have tried, these guys have the best shawarma in town! The price is good, preparation is quick, they use fresh ingredients and don't water down their sauces. The people that work there are also great.

I just wish they had a bigger spot, lineups cross into the sidewalk and getting in and around the display to choose topping and pay can be a bit of a challenge. But grab a wrap and head to the VAG steps to eat and it's totally worth it!

Decent Falafel
Submitted Thursday, December 4, 2008 - 11:17pm [Dine in]

Been here a couple times now and the food is alright. It isn't the "Best" in town, but I haven't had horrible luck so it's pretty good.

Price is what you might expect it to be, about $7 or so for a shawarma plate. I usually do the chicken as the beef looks a bit questionable. The pita bread is the same kind you get at a grocery store, so we aren't talking classy middle-eastern food here. But it's filling and the place is pretty comfortable. The people are friendly too. I did recently try their Jamacian beef pattys are not on my recommend list. I saw them decided to try it and it tasted like freezer burn! :P

Taisho Japanese Restaurant4700 Kingsway, 15E, Burnaby
Worst Japanese Food EVER!
Submitted Thursday, December 4, 2008 - 11:07pm [Dine in]

I guess my title says it all. We decided to try this restaurant as the few times we passed by, it seemed pretty full. You can basically do either all-you-can-eat or a la carte and we decided to try all-you-can-eat. I don't know if going on a Thursday night somehow makes a difference on the experience, but it was not a good one.

For starters, our server was less than attentive and seemed to deliberately ignore me when I glanced over. Then there's the food, the items on the kaiten (the buffet is served as a conveyor-belt restaurant, although the selection on there is quite basic) were barely touched and the two things we decided to try weren't that great. Then we ordered some nigiri sushi. The rice was so dry and the tuna was FAR from fresh. The spicy salmon sashimi was obviously done with really old salmon as well.

So we decided to stay away from the fish and tried cooked foods to see if that might be a better choice....bad idea. The tempura was SUPER greasy (it seemed as if it cooked, cooled and then was thrown back in to warm it up...if you do that with deep fried stuff it tends to just soak up oil), the chicken karage although greasy, still managed to be really dry on the inside.

Suffice it to say the place was horrible and I would not recommend it anyone. I realize you may want to take each review with a grain of salt, but if you choose to go to Taisho, take a couple Rolaids with you as well.

The one positive I can say, is the place looks clean (although the kitchen, which is open concept, could have been better); the decor is also not bad, bright (in a nice way) and earthy...it's certainly becoming.
