Food is inconsistent - Service is Pi$$ poor.

Was there for the world cup. Forced to choose from their "game menu" (i.e. limited late night menu). After waiting nearly forever for our food to show up, we ordered the hummus, lamb kebab appetizers and chicken stirfry meal.

Hummus was probably the best I've had in Vancouver (that doesn't say a whole lot but I've tried many many places). Full of garlic and chunky and quite tasty. So is the accompaniment of pita which seems freshly made .

However, the lamb kebab was unexpected. Tasted like day old hot dogs cooked with some kind of beet potato salad. Barely any kebab with too much of the salad in comparison to the rest of the plate. Amount of food for the appetizer was enough for a meal but couldn't finish it. It came with a fried rice roll which was nice as well but only one.

The Chicken stirfry meal was awful. Found a piece of beef in the chicken dish and complained to the owner, we showed him the piece of meat we found. However, instead of being apologetic, he proceeded to lecture us that we should have complained earlier. We had tried to flag the waitress down earlier but was ignored pretty much the entire time until she finally came to collect the plates which was when we complained.

The owner offered another plate but as we were on our way out the door, we declined. He was unremorseful and irritated. There was no concession on the final bill.

And ladies, don't even think of going to the toilet... the door lock is nonexistent and in the small cramped space there's an extra door for the single stall but no working lock on that either.

Will never return here again. Sad because the hummus was good.

Will not return.

Staff doesn't understand English.

Sushi is average to below average at best.

Why would you order teriyaki beef "sushi"? Which is what we got when we ordered the Teriyaki beef box... It was just as it sounds.

Since there are such limited options for sushi on this particular block, it will survive until another mediocre sushi place opens up.

I'd rather walk an extra mile or 2 and save my money. Will not return here.

Toyo Sushi2211 Cambie Street, Vancouver
great food and service
Submitted Saturday, November 28, 2009 - 9:50pm [Dine in]

I'd been here on irregular occasions with family and noticed that it was empty and figured it was due to the construction in the area. However, every time the service was great, plenty of room and love the private booths they have, great for keeping our roving 2 year old busy. If you can get a table by the Cambie Bridge side, you get some really great views to the water and bridge.

Came here one night after trying to get takeaway from Toshi Sushi but after being told that there would be over a 30 minute wait just to order by some rude waitress and I had this nagging craving for sushi, decided to come out to Toyo since it was a bit quieter and they had free parking in the back. So happy I did! Not only did we get great sushi and service but while waiting, my daughter got a lollypop and I was offered tea. Since then have been back for my weekly sushi cravings and don't regret it at all! Prices are reasonable and staff is friendly.

Would definitely recommend the korean bulgogi, the portion sizes are large enough for 2 plus with enough leftover for a light lunch the next day. Would like to see more Korean items listed on the menu as the restaurant.

The sushi is fresh and one of the few sushi restaurants around the area where the service seems to be served with a smile. Hope more people come and enjoy the place !

Fritz European Fry House718 Davie Street, Vancouver
Not european but not bad
Submitted Saturday, March 1, 2008 - 7:54pm [Dine in]

I wouldn´t quite call this place a European fry house. There´s Indonesian peanut sauce on the menu and poutine which is totally North American. And yes, I know why Indonesian peanut sauce is on the menu.

Still, if you haven´t experienced really really good fries... Belgian fries are the best... then this place is not so bad. I succumbed to the peanut sauce which was too full of black pepper but nice with the chunky peanuts in it. My bf had a poutine. His first. And have to say his last, especially if this is the best poutine in town. Must be an acquired taste.

In general, not bad if you have a craving for fries. On the other hand, if you have a craving for good fries, then well it´s ok.

An aside, I personally don´t like crispy fries but I do like the skins left on and the less greasiness.

And they are quite pricey for the fancy dips. Personally, I´d make my own or buy a bottle from the store.

has a lot of potential

Went for lunch here and had the vegetarian special and some crab roll. Waitress was extremely friendly, helpful and cheerful. Food was a bit on the oily side but had nice flavor. Crab dumpling roll was very nice. A lot of food for a lunch special and the 2 of us were able to fill up on these 2 dishes.

Not bad Chinese food but would go back definitely for the amazing fried bread roll that came with the meal.
