Rikka Japanese Kitchen28 8th Street, New Westminster
Mom-n-Pop restaurant; Very good food!
Submitted Monday, October 20, 2008 - 11:57am [Dine in]

It's owned & operated by a Japanese man. The food is very good and authentic Japanese, but recently they changed the menu and prices have gone up in the new menu, which is quite sad. The portions are smaller in comparison to the prices, but the food tastes quite good. As soon as you are seated, they serve green tea; as for appetizers go I like their Agedashi tofu, kolokke and the fried tuna tempura in homemade teriyaki sauce is amazing! For main dishes I like their chicken katsu don or teriyaki don; I tried a pork dish cooked in ginger sauce, but that didn't go well for my taste, the meat was too fatty & chewy.

Anyway, they also have Japanese desserts like kakiage, which contains some shaved ice, with vanilla ice-cream, some fruit pieces like kiwi & strawberry, some sweet jelly, some sweet red bean paste and some kind of sweet gummy bits, perfect for a good summer day!

The service is not so great, since they don't have any servers or kitchen help, the owner is the only person cooking & serving most of the time. I guess being opposite to Kirin, is a disadvantage for them, because Kirin sucks most of the customers who feel like eating Japanese. As for me, I would prefer Rikka any day, instead of Kirin. Although they should get a liquor licence & serve some nice japanese sake or beer, that would go great with their food!

King Sushi410 Sixth St, New Westminster
Why do they serve noodles instead of rice!
Submitted Monday, October 20, 2008 - 11:40am [Dine in]

Rice is the base of Japanese cuisine, I don't understand why King sushi serves noodles instead of rice in their meat dishes! Anyway the food if alright, served professionally, they offer tea and water while seating a new customer, which I feel quite comforting. The food comes in japanese/oriental plates so looks very exotic. The quantities are smaller than expected, but overall it's not a bad experience. Also it's not owned by a Japanese, rather the owners are either chinese or korean!

Kasuga Sushi Japanese Restaurant521 6th Ave, New Westminster
Nothing Special, just average.
Submitted Monday, October 20, 2008 - 11:33am [Dine in]

The food it okay, but it's not innovative at all. The owner is not Japanese, he's a grumpy old Korean man. The servers are Japanese though, I am not sure about the cooks! Anyway, I prefer Paradise sushi or Rikka's kitchen better than Kasuga, if I feel like eating Japanese food.

Their Combos are good value for lunch, but I don't like their miso soup at all, taste like it was made days ago!

Indian Star Restaurant & Sweets420 Sixth Street, New Westminster
Decent food, but not a lot of variety; Expensive lunch buffet!
Submitted Monday, October 20, 2008 - 11:25am [Dine in]

I have been to Indian star a lot of times, since it's the only Indian restaurant near my house, but lately after trying more that half of their menu, I feel that they don't have a lot of variety to offer. Most of the curries taste the same, they have like 2-3 signature curries that that use for most of their dishes. Also they use a lot of butter & cream, which makes the food very heavy on the stomach. I like their chicken/lamb biryani.

The lunch buffet has become quite expensive I think, it used to be $8.95 but they jumped it to $10.95, considering the range of dishes they serve even $8.95 was a strech, compared to food places on fraser or main street!
