Cafe Gloucester3338 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Outstanding: for an HK cafe
Submitted Friday, March 16, 2007 - 2:21am [Dine in]

Good Service and Great convenience shine through in this HK style cafe. There are not many late night HK style cafes that are open as late and are as clean as this place. Their late night menu is very reasonably priced at $6-10 and it includes a hot/cold drink of your choice. I particularly enjoy their Macau style pork chop bun w/fries. I will def revisit.

kinda expensive
Submitted Tuesday, March 13, 2007 - 2:50am [Dine in]

i thought i'd give this place a try cause they've always got such a big line up. highlights were the char siu buns, spicy/salty squid, and shrimp dumplings. found it interesting that they ask each person what kind of tea leaves they wanted. bf says their hot sauce is average. overall, my experience was good but i felt that the food is only on par with other inexpensive dim sum places but you have to pay a premium for it.

not bad for inexpensive dim sum
Submitted Tuesday, March 13, 2007 - 2:32am [Dine in]

i've had dim sum here many times. i always go on weekday mornings/afternoons and still have to wait at least 10 mins. before getting a table. for their prices you really can't go wrong. their dinner dishes are also pretty good. they have a pretty wide variety of dim sum. and i love the fact that their turn-around is so fast - so the food's usually still hot/warm. love the salty chicken on rice and bbq duck with noodle in soup. favs. also include "dow miu dumpling", gar lan, deep fried tofu with veggies, smelt, pork with rice, and etc. service is pretty good considering their always so busy. they renovated about a year ago so the place looks very presentable. so if they don't up the prices to much in the future, i will definitely continue to visit.

Kura Japanese Restaurant4300 Kingsway, #2, Burnaby
mixed feelings...
Submitted Saturday, March 10, 2007 - 2:21am [Dine in]

been here twice. love the fact that the owner? and employees are actually Japanese!! we ordered the tuna tataki AND the the tuna capariccio. the tuna capariccio is definitely better. it has just the right amount of onion, green onion, cherry tomatoes. But, i'm not too sure about the amount of black pepper that they used (a bit much). the beef sashimi was great cause it was served at the perfect temperature and very thinly sliced. i usually don't eat the spicy tuna but my bf made me try it. i'm glad i did cause it wasn't too spicy, but it had a rather sweet spiciness to it. the ebi mayo was ok; the prawns were over cooked and i felt that the mayo could have been more tangy. the oyster motoyaki was not that great. the oyster was tough and there wasn't that much of it in there. my fav. part of the meal was actually the gyoza cause it was very juicy! ambiance rating at 4 because the place is clean, spacious, and authentic!!

must try the deep-fried pork chop with salad dressing
Submitted Wednesday, March 7, 2007 - 1:51am [Dine in]

i have had their late-nite food 4 times now and it's been fairly good everytime. we've tried clams, gai lan, fried intestines, deep-fried tofu, and etc... all good. but, my fav. dish has got to be that deep-fried pork chop with salad dressing. hence the rating of "outstanding". during the morning, i've tried their shui-kow noodle with soup (come with 4 fair sized shui-kow) and minced beef congee (average). everything is very reasonably priced. service is alright, nothing special. ambiance is not impressive. but good food. lots of parking. opens til 2am.
ps. pls. do submit review if any of you have had better pork with salad dressing anywhere else.

gotta get the chicken and ribs
Submitted Saturday, March 3, 2007 - 11:40pm [Dine in]

3 out of 4 of us ordered the chicken and rib combo. everybody thought that the ribs were made just right and the chicken was quite juicy. my dad even said that the ribs were better than tony romas'! french fries were alright. and mash potatoes with gravy was good, not too salty like most places. only disappointment was the coleslaw, it was stale. the dinner roll was warm. 1 of us ordered the chicken quesadilla which was very good. the caesar salad it came with was fine. we finished up with the caramel fudge cheesecake which was not bad at all, but it's best to share this cause it's quite heavy.
overall, outstanding food and service for the price you pay for. we all came out stuffed.

what happened to my childhood hangout??
Submitted Thursday, March 1, 2007 - 11:13pm [Dine in]

used to come here all the time in highschool and i don't remember it being so icky. the only thing i enjoyed was the jack fruit slushy. i ordered the lemon grass chicken with rice and spring rolls. the chicken was decent. rice was totally mushy. the lettuce that also came with it was old. my bf had the large pho with 3 kinds of meat; steak, flank, and tendon. too be fair, he did say that it was good. so i guess, if he were writing this review, the food rating would be "solid". the service was not great. the place was dirty. i would not visit again.

hidden little treasure in bby
Submitted Thursday, March 1, 2007 - 10:55pm [Dine in]

i've been here several times and it's been good every time. i like to start off with the clams and ginger soup. i find it very refreshing, but it is acquired taste. i say this cause i ordered it last time with some gf and 2 out of 5 didn't like it. we all loved the crispy chicken with basil- it's a must have... every time.! also tried the egg plant (if you like spicy and OILY - i've never had it any other way though), stringed green beens (if you like salty, if not then just don't eat too much of the little bits of sprinkled on stuff), kung pow chicken (very,very spicy and you can't get it with mild spice). prawns (without shell so not messy. it comes with lots of little bits of garlic). noodles with soup is very tasty. they have lots of goodies that are not in their menu but written in chinese on the wall board. last time, we went with our parents so we ordered off the board. we ordered chinese donut wrapped in sticky rice (nothing unusual). veggies wrapped in bean curd (good, but very oily), gyoza (average).
i would go on a week night if you don't want to wait FOREVER. i would highly recommend you call and make reservations - it does make a difference.
service is typical of a chinese rest.
everything is resonably priced.

can't get enough of their late nite menu
Submitted Thursday, March 1, 2007 - 4:03pm [Dine in]

first of all, their late nite menu starts at 9pm. i find their standard to be very consistent - always very good. we usually start off with the agadashi tofu, maybe a miso soup. they've never skimped out on the sashimi. my favorites are chopped scallop and toro. my bf favs are salmon, amaebi, negitoro, and spicy tuna. their beef sashimi is average. and don't forget to order the oyster motoyaki, yum yum. if you're not a big fan of "raw" food, no worried, they have a pretty big selection of cooked food too. i've experienced their california roll (huge) and beef teriyaki roll, not bad.
service is typical of most asian rest.
