Ebisu in Richmond8111 Ackroyd Road, #100, Richmond
OK in an AYCE way for lunch horrid for dinner.
Submitted Saturday, June 5, 2010 - 10:42pm [Dine in]

We went to Ebisu tonight for dinner so this review is still fresh. Ordered the Sushi Boat, Oysters and Tempura Udon. Food was horrid. I don't know what is wrong with this Chinese run pseudo Japanese place. The Tempura was OK a little oily but passable as were the California rolls in my sushi boat. Was supposed to have fruit in my sushi boat but "they were out". The Oysters were not fresh and were swimming in vinegar. The photo shows oysters with sides of vinegar, tomato, and ponzu. They took the liberty of doucing them in the sauces and serving them. Guess they were not that fresh. My toro and salmon sashimi was frozen in the middle and was served two tiny I mean loonie size slices of dry overcooked salmon on rice as salmon terriyaki. The udon was overcooked and needed to be replaced . The waitress said that was the way it was supposed to be but replaced it when she saw it was burned and stuck to the dish. I have been here for lunch and it was OK with AYCE quality. Dinner though was terrible. We spent about 45.00 pretax for two which was OK, if the food was better. We were not expecting Yoshi's or Octupus Gardens quality but this was worst that any ACYE place in Richmond. We had better quality food at Tomikazu, or even I dare say Richmond Sushi.

Give this place a miss and eat at Sushi Hachi or Tsukiji which are 1000 times better.

Ming Shing Restaurant7158 120 Street, Surrey
Forget About It
Submitted Thursday, June 18, 2009 - 9:58am [Dine in]

We were regular diners at Ming Shing. We usually ate in. We decided to order take out for a change and were sorely dissapointed. We ordered salted fish and chicken fried rice, spicy prawns, and bok choy with garlic. The prawns were $15.00. Upon unpacking our food at home we were shocked to see 4 small shrimp and the remainder of out dish filled with broccolli.. When we eat there we usually get 8-9 shrimp. But 4 is a ripoff. They lost my business for good, over a 15.00 dish.

Taste of Singapore Restaurant7500 120th Street, Surrey

Taste of Singapore is a small family run place that focuses on Muslim Singaporean food. You will not find pork or alcohol on their menu; in fact they claim to be halal. Upon perusing the menu we decided what we wanted. Much to our shegrin most items we wanted were not available. I think they had 1 out of 5 dishes we wanted available. No satay, no char kway teow, no chicken rice. We were debating going somewhere else to eat at about this point. They did recommend some dishes and we decided to stay as we were running out of time as my Mom had to get to work. We ordered their nasi biryani, beef rendang and peppercorn fish. All dishes were $9.00 , which was pretty reasonable considering the portion sizes. The nasi biryani was excellent. The chicken pieces were very juicy and tender and the rice was well spiced. It was probably the best biryani I have had in Vancouver. Usually we avoid ordering biryani as it is either too greasy or the meat is way too dry. The beef rendang was also good. I wasn’t looking forward to eating rendang as most places we go use fatty hunks of beef brisket. I think they used stewing beef in their rendang which was a plus to me. Though rendang usually permeates with the smell and flavour of coconut, this one didn’t. I did feel the coconut flavour was missing. The fish we ordered was lightly dusted in flour and pepper and deep fried. It was tossed with crispy tiny dried shrimp, fried shallots, and garlic. We found the fish a bit too salty for our liking but the the shallots and garlic went well with the plain rice they gave us with the rendang. Overall we will definitely be back, hopefully next time they will have their menu woes sorted out
