Dragon Ball Tea House1007 W King Edward, Vancouver
The best bubble tea in Vancouver
Submitted Monday, March 16, 2009 - 10:10pm [Dine in]

I've been coming here for years have had many a good time with friends and by myself. This is one of the only places in the city that has avocado slush bubble tea and it's SO good. I have also tried their many fresh fruit concoctions, plain milk tea, taro, and a new favourite of mine, the wheat germ milk tea with pudding. Also, SO good. The service is okay, you pretty much just order and wait for your order to be called. It gets really crowded sometimes, but it's all part of the fun!

Pagliacci's1011 Broad St, Victoria
Love, love, LOVE this place.
Submitted Monday, March 16, 2009 - 9:49pm [Dine in]

I came to Victoria to visit a friend for the weekend and can say that I would come back just for Pagliacci's even if I didn't know anybody in the area. I ordered a pasta that had a coconut milk sauce, I believe Thai-inspired, and it was amazing. I was happy to see that they had half orders for every dish, which is just the right amount for me and left me full and satisfied, but not bursting. I got a taste my friends' dishes, too, which I remember being quite tasty as well. The service was great, and when we came in we didn't have to wait for a table at all. The server was very friendly and conversational, and so was the host. We had a nice evening enjoying our food, drinks, and each other's company. I recommend it fully!

I love this place! Okay, I've only been twice, but both times have been great. The service is awesome, although you only get to enjoy this after you've been seated--the hostess is not that welcoming (both times). The servers are genuine and friendly. On our second visit, the server actually said, "is there anything else I can do to make your dinner more enjoyable?" and then looked at us expectantly with a smile on her face. It looked like she actually cared. And then there's the food. The ratatouille was delicious--plus everything else I've had there. Best of all was the brie fondue. Succulent! Prices are a bit high, but such good food justifies it enough.

Robson Sushi Japanese Restaurant1542 Robson St, Vancouver
Don't Go Here Because This Place Sucks
Submitted Friday, February 8, 2008 - 11:57pm [Dine in]

I used to come to this place regularly with my girlfriends; we always enjoyed ourselves and left the place with both our wallets and bellies full. The service has never been good: nobody smiles at you or greets you or even says thank you; when asked for water any server always takes ages, and you always get the feeling that they aren't particularly pleased that you are there, and that they are also not pleased that they themselves are there. Nevertheless, we still ventured back, time and time again. NOT ANYMORE. The last time we went we decided it would be okay not to leave the 15% tip we always left in the past, especially because the service is always nonexistent. We were stopped on our way out by the waiter and he said, "You didn't leave enough tip. Usually it is 10-15%." My friends and I were astounded. From what I understood, tip should be about that much or more ONLY if the service is good--servers are already getting paid for the basic duties that they have been hired to do, anything else is extra. At Robson Sushi, the servers do their basic duties (begrudgingly at that), and nothing more. In my opinion, they don't deserve a tip at all. What's more, when my friend asked him why it didn't say on the bill that this supposed tip was required, he proceeded to point at a small tray with a message taped on to it that was all in Japanese. This confused us even more, first because all the employees there aren't even Japanese themselves (you can also tell that the food isn't authentic), secondly neither me nor any of my friends looks Japanese, and thirdly because he just stood there looking at us like we should try and read the thing. "We can`t understand that," I said. "Well, this is a Japanese restaurant." So we`re supposed to know how to read Japanese before we come to dine at a Japanese restaurant in Vancouver? Completely irrational! We gave them an extra toonie and walked out for good. I couldn't believe it. I am never coming back to this place again.

Kamiya Japanese Restaurant345 Robson Street, #202, Vancouver
So Lovely
Submitted Friday, February 8, 2008 - 9:44pm [Dine in]

I've been coming to this restaurant for a couple of years and I have never been disappointed. The staff provides excellent customer service-- as soon as you walk in you are greeted by a very pleasant lady I assume is the owner, even though she is usually standing by the till a ways away. It's true that it is fast food, but nonetheless it is very satisfying and yummy. All the cooks are also very friendly and greet you with a big smile when you leave. Mind you, they all know me because I frequent the place, but it didn't take them long at all to recognize me. The waitresses are always very attentive, one of them gave me and my boyfriend matching key chains from when she visited Korea, and another one made a point of remembering the dishes that I like to order. The usual, "Did you enjoy?" from the owner when you pay at the till always makes me smile , mostly because she says it so nicely and with a huge smile on her face. The only thing that I don't like is that they charge for tea (65 cents or something). They do give you hot water refills, though, because they give you a tea bag. Also, their miso soup is not very good at all. I do thoroughly enjoy their donburi dishes, spicy tuna rolls, the best avocado-veggie tempura rolls ever, and their gyozas. Also very clean!
