I read about this place in the paper, and I have to think, why was it even in the paper? These cream puffs are nothing special! The frozen ones that are sold at safeway are just as good... that's all I have to say!
Don't waste your time coming out to this place, I really can't understand why the asians are so in love with this place? Definetaly not my style!

We've been here a few times since they renovated!! What a great little place..... I love the Japanese decor... (It's nice and quaint and NOT like a big ugly banquet hall like all those asian restaurants in Richmond.... that make you feel like your in a big cavernous feed barn). The teppenyakki is great, and the chefs are wonderful! Chatty and very animated! I have been impressed on numerous occasions here, the sushi has always been good, the terryaki chicken has always been good! My only concern is that the tempura vegetables could be a little crispier. Other than that, this place rates high on my favorite sushi restaurants of the lower Mainland!

Well.. where to begin...
We were out and about one day over the summer, and thought we'd stop by Vera's for burgers (we had never been... but thought they must be good as they have so many restaurants around town)... wow.... it was a bit of a dissapointment:-(
I first must say that the menu looked very tasty!! And we thought we'd be in for a great treat.....first off - the service sucked!!! WOW.. did it ever!! The cook/server was rude and could really care less about customer service!
Now for the food:
My daughter ordered a grilled cheese sandwich, as she doesn't care for burgers ... I have to say THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME SHE COULD NOT EVEN EAT HALF THE SANDWICH!! It was absolutely awful.... first off, it was prepared on 1 piece of inside bread, and 1 end-piece of bread (uh... are these people so cheap that they have to actually use the end pieces?? I'm not saying I'm a wasteful person (in fact I choose to eat the end pieces at home... I'm just saying that these end-pieces don't exactly taste great in grilled cheese sandwhiches) but most kids hate the end pieces in general.... and they are horrible when making grilled cheese sandwhiches!!!)... as well... the crappy sandwhich was burned!!
As for my burger... it was dry, and had to be chased with water... yum...*vomit*
I can't say we will ever return to this crap shack... sorry
