Mongolie Grill8400 Alexandra Road, Richmond
Two Words: NO GOOD!
Submitted Monday, December 14, 2009 - 10:45am [Dine in]

Now thinking back I really don't understand why my friend would pick up this restaurant to celebrate her birthday, it's simply not good started from the beginning.

SERVICE: We arrived at this place shortly before 5pm, after we were seated the waitress was nowhere to see for a good 10-15 minutes and we were the only table at restaurant at that time. Since our birthday girl hasn't had arrived yet, we asked our waitress to explain how it works after she finally returned to our table, she wasn't paying any attention to us, speaking fast in a very strong British accent while she was looking outside of the window. We barely caught half what she said. When one of my friends joked about most of the asian restaurants come with the green tea, she gave us a dirty look like we couldn't afford it and almost yelled at us in a high pitch voice:"It's never free in our restaurant!!"... After that she disappeared from our table for good until another gentleman came over to take care of us for the rest of our stay, at least he was soft spoken and polite--for a change.

FOOD: The food bar around the grill looked messy, meats looked black and not fresh while vegetables looked like leftover from the week before. This lady cook behind the grill seemed like totally out, slow in motion and never said a word to us during the whole time except asking our table number. She had no expression on her face or whatsoever at all time either, and guess what, she also kept staring outside of the window. I wonder why both ladies in this restaurant all love to look outside, there were just some parked cars.

VALUE: The price at this place was also on the high end, although four of us only spent $40, but we hadn't had any drinks and our dinner plates were smaller than appetizer size. In the end, we left our waiter a 20% tip, half because he was nice and friendly, half we would like him to tell that snobby waitress: asking about the green tea got nothing to do with the affordability, there is no need to be rude.

Average Everything

Tried this restaurant for the first time with some friends from out of town since they felt like steaks that night. I heard this is a chain restaurant that has lots of locations across the nation, so maybe I was expecting too much or maybe they were too busy that night taking care a few big company parties, everything were just about average except the decor and ambiance.

The dessert is little above average but still nothing really stands out.

First Review
Submitted Thursday, December 10, 2009 - 2:36am [Dine in]

It's a big company that has 8000+ locations all over the world, I am sure they sell lots of pizzas everyday, yet funny, one one bother to write anything about it, ok, then let me be the first one, at least on this site.

Their pizza is good and delivery is fast, but I think the best thing they offer on their menu is the Cheezy Bread. It is so good, it's just plain wonderful! Full of melted cheese on a big piece of hot fluffy bread for just about $5

Well, I figured if they can grow to such a big company, they must did and still doing something right.

Good Spot For Spicy Food
Submitted Thursday, December 10, 2009 - 2:13am [Dine in]

This restaurant has few locations, the Richmond one used to be on the side street of the Save On Food Plaza, now they are in the mall, the whole place looks a lot nicer and brighter.

Food and service are both good and attentive, especially if you love spicy food, this is the place to go. They have all kinds in different spicy sauce, meat, seafood, or vegetibles all can be ordered from mild to really hot if you ask for it. Personally, I love their satays and curry lamb, meat is tender and soaked with wonderful multi-flavours, just can't get enough whenever we go there.

However, two things I'd like to point out though, one is try to avoid their dessert items, they are small and pricy, and taste plain; the second thing is I am very surprised that they don't take Visa, only Mastercard or cash..these days it's hard to see a place in the mall that don't take Visa

Pho Lan Vietnamese Restaurant6950 No. 3 Road, Richmond
First Time Try And Will Be Back
Submitted Wednesday, December 9, 2009 - 11:50am [Dine in]

Couple of my friends have been telling me about this place for a while, saying that their noodle soup and spring rolls are way better than other Vietnamese restaurants. So the weather is cold and nights are now dip into sub-zero, I finally headed out to this place last weekend for the first time.

My friends were absolutely right. I ordered a noodle soup with thin sliced beef and beef meat balls, it was fantastic! The meat and veges in it were both very fresh while the soup base was delicious and hot, perfect for taste bud and this kind of cold nights. The service is OK but fast, decoration is simple, but 99% of the asian noodle houses we are going are only for one thing and one thing only: food! and I have to say The Lan does this part right.

I was going to order their spring rolls too, but after a large bowl of noodle soup with lots of meat and noodle in it, I was so full..but that's all right, I will be back there and try it next time.

Felico's Restaurant8140 Leslie Road, Richmond
Great As Always
Submitted Wednesday, December 9, 2009 - 10:59am [Dine in]

Love this restaurant and go there on a regular basis since me and most of my friends and relatives live in Richmond. Their food is always good and service is always friendly. Try their seafood/greek Combo for two, great value, reasonable priced and you can have a variety of items on their menu to try out. It's not easy for a restaurant to maintain a level of consistency for so many years, and I think their packed dining room every night shows just that.

Well done, Felico's!

Manzo Japanese Restaurant8391 Alexandra Road, #2170, Richmond
Good For A Late Night Snack
Submitted Wednesday, December 9, 2009 - 10:41am [Dine in]

The place is small but with warm and cozy decoration, it's just like a typical japanese after-work drinking, snacking bar. Been there few times within last couple of years, the food is always decent in taste, the service is always quick and friendly. This place is not good when you are hungry because the quantity of their dishes are usually small, but it's a perfect place for a couple of drinks and snacks with good friends after you had dinner elsewhere.

We will go back for sure.
