Great little place!
Submitted Tuesday, September 13, 2011 - 4:52pm [Dine in]

I work nearby and have heard my co-workers talk about how great Sushiholic was. I am definitely a believer and I REALLY love this place!
I've been there a few times for lunch on weekdays and also a few times over the weekend (lunch and dinners). The servers there are really nice, attentive and really quick! The place is a little small and can be cramped if they are having a lunch/dinner rush, but the food is so good, you really don't notice!

I always order the special rolls (Sockeye Salmon Roll, Red Roll are my faves)...also the Gomae and Gyoza are really yummy too! Sometimes, the chef gives out FREE miso soup at the end of your meal and that is a really nice gesture! The food always tastes nice and fresh and is always consistent...I've never had anything bad at Sushiholic.

The only downside is that sometimes it can get really backed up and the chefs have a hard time preparing the food. We have had times where we had to wait really long for our food...but we were given free miso soup and edamame for the wait.

Its really worth a try!

What a HUGE disappointment
Submitted Tuesday, September 13, 2011 - 4:37pm [Take-out]

I actually went to their stand at PNE and was extremely excited to try their food since I heard a lot of hype about it. I figured if it was featured on Eat St., its gotta be good...I was REALLY wrong.

First off, the prices were really high and I thought it would be a lot cheaper from a food truck. Although at that moment, I figured the portions must make up for why it was so pricey. I ordered a Chicken Dragon Sub, a Taco (don't remember which kind) and also a Lychee Lemonade. It was about $18...and I thought it was that was quite steep.

Second, when we finally got our food (after a really long wait), we were EXTREMELY disappointed with the taco. It was literally ONE super tiny taco and for $4...we were pretty shocked. The Dragon Sub was actually full sized and looked like it would be filling...but for $8?! I could get the exact same sized sub at Au Petit for $4.75 (and taste 10x better). The lemonade was alright, I liked the first few sips but after that..it started tasting really funny.

Third, the actual TASTE...my boyfriend ate his taco in less than 20 seconds and then told me that it wasn't anything special and he was indifferent about how it tasted. However he was really upset that it costed him $4 for a bite of average quality food. I started getting into my sub when I realized that a huge part of the bread was burnt...and burnt very badly, I had to flake off all the black burnt areas before I could try a bite. My first bite was all bread and a full mouth of raw onions...I really wasn't impressed. I took another bite and got another mouthful of raw onions...now I was really mad. I unwrapped the sub and looked inside and realized I was staring at what looked like almost half of a raw onion in the sub with very little chicken! I started picking out allllllll the onions as it was so overwhelming it was almost impossible to believe.

At the end of my onion sub, I was left feeling cheated, hungry and had onion breath....good thing I was at the PNE and there were 20+ stands of other foods I could eat (and that were actually tasty).

Sorry Roaming Dragon...you have been slayed from my list.

My go-to place!

Vanya is tucked away is a small corner by the major intersection of Joyce and Kingsway. I can say that I have been going to Vanya since I was a little girl (at least 13 years). I have never been disappointed by the many many meals that I have had. I have done take-out and dined in on various occasions over the years. (I take out there at least once every 3 weeks)

They recently upgraded their restaurant with a new look with hardwood floors. It makes the restaurant look a lot brighter and bigger...I was really digging it. The atmosphere almost could feel like you were in Japan, the owners and employees at Vanya are all authentic Japanese people. I LOVE that about this restaurant!

The food is awesome, I cannot complain about the quality of food. However, for those of you that are used to the HUGE rolls and giant portions they give at other Japanese restaurants (mostly at all you can eat)...then you might be disappointed with the portions at Vanya. The rolls are fairly small, however, the quality of the food and the taste will blow you away.

For all Japanese food lovers, please go try Vanya!

Eatery, The3431 W Broadway, Vancouver
A huge disappointment
Submitted Sunday, September 13, 2009 - 4:27pm [Dine in]

We got seated right away inside, however, it was extremely cramped and the tables were super sticky. We got our menus, looked through and placed our orders. We ordered a Jenny Tuna, A dozen wings (salt n pepper/honey garlic), Capt'n Crunch and a Prawn crunch. The drinks came first and they were fine (a Coke and a Root Beer float). The food took a little while to come but nothing outrageously long. The waitress somehow dropped one roll from the plate on the table and nearly missed my boyfriend. She apologized and asked if we wanted another made, which we said yes. (Oh yeah, she dropped my boyfriend's chopsticks before that too). The replacement roll came out fairly quickly and we began eating. Overall, the food wasn't that great...the texture for everything was quite soggy. The wings weren't anything too special either. The table next to us finished their meal and got up to leave, due to the crampt quarters...her purse knocked over our soya sauce bottle which shattered on the floor. The staff quickly came over to clean up the mess, but never once asked if we were okay..or if any of the sauce spilt on us or even gave us an apology. Then came the bill...when the bill came, we definitely expected the one roll that was dropped to be free...however that was not the case. We were charged for everything and there was not even a slight discount for the mishap. My boyfriend and I didn't even want to bother to ask for it as we were both in a sour mood already. The bill was $28.84 and my boyfriend put down $40.00...the change came back and they gave us $11.00 back. My boyfriend and I looked at eachother and realized that they decided to round the amount up and short change us. Now, we weren't angry at the fact that we were stiffed the 11 cents but it was the principle that got us fuming. We never received any explanation as to why our bill was randomly rounded up. Even if they came up to us and explained that they didn't have any change left or whatever the reason might have been, we would've really appreciated an explanation. The manager was around and talking and trying to make light of the situation, but we were not having it at all. We believe that this was very poor management as 1. We didn't receive a free roll when the waitress dropped it and 2. You don't round someones bill up without letting them know.
It's safe to say that we are never going back to The Eatery.
