Sensational Sushi!!
Submitted Saturday, March 24, 2007 - 7:49pm [Dine in]

Definitely one of the best sushi places in town. Their fusion rolls are inventive and delicious, but nothing beats the more traditional rolls such as the Gozilla Roll and Rainbow Roll. They bring all the great favorites of a California Roll, Dynamite Roll and Unagi Roll into one fabulous bite. The sashimi is perfect, and it melts in your mouth just like it should. They have a fantastic array of Nigiri to choose from. Every morsel is fresh and amazing.

The price is average, but well worth the $$$. The service is pretty solid. (Probably better than when you’re blending into a large crowd at the tapenake table.) The ambience is solid as well … yes it’s not Kobe’s but I’m not there to look at the wallpaper.

My advice is GO FOR THE SUSHI! The other guy obviously found the Tapenake very disappointing … but we go there at least once a week, and we’ve never had a bad meal at Katana. We’ve eaten at about 20 sushi restaurants in the lower mainland, including the Japanese Cultural centre that serves the authentic stuff, and this is right up there.

Sushi Garden4635 Kingsway, Burnaby
Pretty Good
Submitted Monday, April 10, 2006 - 7:03pm [Dine in]

Sushi Garden must be doing something right. There isn't a block on Kingsway that doesn't have at least a couple little sushi eateries, but on a Saturday night, Sushi Garden is the only one bustling with activity. It had a constant flow of people coming and going, so we didn't have a problem finding a table.

Let's get down to business... the food was outstanding. The sushi was fresh and they gave pretty healthy portions. The tuna and salmon sashimi were huge slabs and practically melts in your mouth. The chopped scollop roll and the unagi rolls are also very good. The shrimp tempura was excellent. If you order combos, it's definitely worth your money.

Prices were very affordable for dinner, specially since we orderd a la carte. We were stuffed $30 total for a couple. Now if you order dinners for two or that boat of sushi, you should definitely bring a couple more people to help you finish it off.

The service was extremely fast, specially considering how busy they are. Our server was efficient and pleasant.

The ambiance rating had to be low ... the place is pretty much a dive, but that's usually where all the really great ethnic food is.

Definitely recommend it.

Tasty Sweets & Restaurant12047 80 Avenue, #103, Surrey
Go For the Incredible Food
Submitted Sunday, March 26, 2006 - 6:33pm [Dine in]

You won't find better tasting Butter Chicken or Nan ANYWHERE ... not even in India. Tasty Sweets is a shabby little restaurant on Scott Road, and if you've never been there, you'd probably never give it a second thought. It's not the place for a fancy date, but if you're looking for good Indian food, you've found it.

For less than $8 you can line-up for the lunch buffet. There are only a few dishes available, but they are to die for. The Butter Chicken and the Chili Paneer have amazing flavour, I guarantee you'll be regular before long. The Lamb Curry and Tandoori Chicken are pretty good, as well. The Nan will also impress you. It's usually hot from the stove and melts in your mouth; perfect for sopping up all the sauces that you won't want to leave on the plate. If you miss the lunch buffet (which ends at 3pm), the a la carte dishes on the menu are just as good. You'll have much more selection of great food for somewhere around $9 a dish. The Chicken Bryanni is delicious!

The down side is the service and the ambiance aren't that great, but the food more than makes up for it. It's a great find if you love food, and we'd definitely recommend going there. Just a note that all the food is made nice and spicy, so make sure you order a pitcher or water to go with you buffet. If you're ordering from the menu, you can always ask for mild if spicy isn't you thing.

Afghan Horsemen Restaurant, The1833 Anderson Street, #202, Vancouver
Exceptional
Submitted Thursday, March 23, 2006 - 7:23pm [Dine in]

It’s all about the food, and the Afghan Horsemen has consistently delighted me with their excellent cuisine. I have been there with my boyfriend and with friends about 4 times now, and we order the Horsemen platter every time. It’s a got a little bit of everything from the menu, and you won’t be disappointed. The lamb is so tender it melts in your mouth. The chicken and beef kabobs are trimmed with pakora, rice, eggplant etc, and everything is infused with wonderful herbs, spices and mouth-watering flavours. We occasionally order the Ruffino Chianti which works wonderfully with the meal.

The portions are large; in fact, we took quite a bit home and had it for the rest of the week. [No complaints here.] The prices are reasonable. The service is genuine, welcoming and attentive. They even squat down to talk to you or take your order if you’re sitting on the cushions.

Perhaps the most note-worthy aspect of eating at the Horsemen aside from the fabulous food is the atmosphere. You have the choice to sit at a table, or on cushions on the floor underneath what looks like tented ceilings. Sitting on the cushions is a fun, intimate and romantic experience enhanced by the dim lighting and the Afghan music playing in the background. They sometimes have a belly dancer during special occasions, which we found very entertaining.

The Horsemen is definitely one of our favourite restaurants. Can’t wait to go back.

Montri's3629 West Broadway, Vancouver
Fabulous Food!
Submitted Friday, March 17, 2006 - 6:11pm [Dine in]

Went to Montri's on Friday evening to have dinner, and the food was fantastic. We ordered Duck in a Red Curry Sauce and Shrimp with Green Beans in a coconut sauce, both of which were very tasty. The food was excellent and had just the right amount of spiciness to it. [They have levels of spiciness that went from 1-5, and we chose 4. We like it hot.] They also have a nice wine list that features wines that go quite well with Thai food. We lucked out and found one we thought was so good, we’ve put into our wine journal.

Our server was very polite, and we didn’t have to wait long before the food arrived.

The ambience was decent. The restaurant had romantic dim lighting and some Thai paintings on the wall. Nothing fancy, but it’s all about the food anyways.

Overall I’d absolutely recommend Montri’s. It's definitely one of our favourites for Thai.
