Wings Restaurants & Pubs1162 Granville Street, Vancouver
Service Good, Food Good, Manager/Owner total @sshole
Submitted Thursday, June 7, 2012 - 4:28pm [Dine in]

I will never come back to this location.

Two of our friends came on a busy night during the play-offs and requested a table of four and saved the other two seats for us. A fifth friend arrived before we did and sat down a few minutes before we arrived and so we were trying to figure out the seating. Worst comes to worst, I squeeze onto one chair with my girlfriend and problem is solved; only... there isn't a fourth chair. The owner/manager comes over and starts barking at us for standing and we ask if we can just have a fourth chair as we asked for a table of four anyways and he starts going on again about us standing which can obviously, be solved by simply bringing us a fourth chair. So I tell the guy, can you just bring us a fourth chair at the very least and everyone can just be happy. This is when his barking grows into a huge glare and now the guy is pointing his finger at me and acting all "authoritative," calling me out for standing when all I want is a fourth chair for our table for four lol.... Eventually our fifth friend left because the situation was just so stupid and the manager stormed off after his own waitresses brought another two chairs, giving us a total of now five chairs for four people. Seriously....

I feel terrible for the waitress who was serving us because she was too good a waitress to be working for this place. The next 5~10 minutes were filled with apologies from the her and and obvious attempt to avoid eye contact with any of us from the owner. I guess the problem with downtown restaurants is that dumber immigrant owners believe they can do whatever they want because they'll get business during hockey season anyways.

The food is the same as always. We usually go to Wings just for the wings and to get drunk. Some notable ones are the Honey Garlic, Tora tora tokyo, sweet chili, texas dry rub. I haven't tried the Bobby Wing, which is their spiciest wing that probably contains chemicals that nobody should be eating, and am not sure if I ever will. I heard taking a glass of milk with the Bobby Wing helps if anyone decides to do that. I believe this location has a 35cent wing special from 3pm-5pm.

Ambiance: Its a bar. The washrooms are located outside the restaurant in the hotel. There isn't much to say.

If you're really craving the wing flavors, Burnaby is a better option. Bigger restaurant, same flavor, no douche owners. If you're looking for cheap wings in general, there are SO many other places in Greater Vancouver that can satisfy your craving. Flying Beaver and Ceili's just to name a couple.

Haroo Homestyle Korean Cuisine8580 Alexandra Road, #2000, Richmond
Has its ups and downs
Submitted Monday, May 14, 2012 - 5:45pm [Dine in]

First of all, I feel bad for this place because it has to share a parking lot with Michigan, Deer Garden, and Cattle which means parking your car to come to this place is a total gongshow. After walking into the restaurant after all the waiting however, you may walk through the doors of Haroo to be greeted into a very homely looking atmosphere.

The server (whom I presume is the owner....?) promptly showed us to our seats where we looked around the restaurant. Korean dramas are playing on two TV's in the restaurant and they have their chopsticks/spoons in these cool looking wooden boxes. Everything is standard but feels really relaxed, nothing totally OUTSTANDING but it was solid.

Let's talk about the food. The side-dishes arrived after we ordered our main courses and at first, we noticed the variety in the dishes they offered. There were 7 of them, including an appetizer congee for each person. The congee was GREAT; the rest is good but not mind-blowing. When asking for refills, the server seemed a little reluctant to give them to us. The salad (which is sized for one person no matter how many people are at your table) is non-refillable no matter how much you want it. We haven't had to go past one refill on the dishes though so I'm not sure if he puts a "limit" on it.

In the times we've visited, my girlfriend and I have ordered their Stone Bowl Bibimbap, Kimchi Hot Pot (which is like a set platter meal for 2~3 people), their tofu soup special (which I can't remember the name of) and they're all very tasty. The portions can be a little small though if you're big eaters. I remember the Bibimbap being smaller than I hoped but it didn't bother me too much since I just filled up with side-dishes.

The tea they use is a corn tea, which was good and new to me. Overall, I recommend this restaurant if you're into the homestyle Korean cooking type of thing. Do not raise your expectations however, as it caters to a specific type of taste.

Posh6462 Kingsway, #105, Burnaby
It's okay, Beats Richmond location by far
Submitted Sunday, April 29, 2012 - 12:30am [Dine in]

For those that don't know what Posh is, it's basically a spin on Japanese sukiyaki that turns out more like a regular hot pot with a soy sauce based soup. For $20~$30, you get to choose between a variety of vegetables, carbs, and pork/beef(AAA Alberta beef if you pay extra).

My girlfriend and I came to the Burnaby location the other day with a redpocket groupon in hand which is $25 for AAA Alberta beef AYCE + bottomless drinks. When we came into the restaurant, we were promptly seated. Half of the restaurant was very packed and lit up. The other half of the restaurant however, was dark, empty, and sort of haunted looking. The side of the restaurant that was packed was run by two servers for 10~12 tables and sadly, they still did a much better job than the Vancouver or Richmond locations ever did in terms of service. Our food and drinks came quickly whenever we asked for something. The one thing that bothered me a lot though, was that the dish-washer and whatever they use to wash the dining cloths seriously needs fixing. I had to change my bowl in the beginning because there were specs of black...stuff inside. The cloth had lip-stick marks on it.

The food. Vegetables are vegetables. Their variety isn't nearly as big as it was a year ago. The black fungus stuff isn't being served anymore but the selection is still solid I guess. The AAA Alberta beef is GREAT. The cuts of the beef are slightly thicker and much more lean, allowing you to really taste the beef flavor. I don't know if it's worth however much extra they charge on the regular price menu though. In fact, I don't even know if anything on their regular menu is worth it at all, which is why I stopped coming to Posh years ago (before the groupons came out). The drinks we got were the 'Strawberry Twist' and 'Lychee Galore.' Both were good; nothing super outstanding but they were good.

All in all, if you like Posh and are having a craving, come to the Burnaby location. I've had far too many bad service experiences in Richmond to ever go back there. In my opinion, the food is good but the value is horrible and that's why I won't be coming back (without groupons =D). It's just too expensive for what they serve. Unless they drop the price back down by a bit, I expect the second half of the restaurant to remain a ghost town. Alternatively, they could throw some more groupons out there. That'll make me come back =)

Update/Follow-up on Review Below
Submitted Monday, April 23, 2012 - 11:59am [Dine in]

Despite not having a working phone, we decided to stop by so we could use up our groupons from theredpocket.com.

Upon arriving, we found that Posh @ Broadway had closed down due to not paying their rent. If anyone still has groupons to use, Richmond was willing to take my groupons (of course if you honor the 24-hour-reservation policy). It's sad, considering that I considered the service at Broadway far superior to the service at the Richmond location.

Sushi Garden4635 Kingsway, Burnaby
Good food, Inconsistent Service
Submitted Monday, February 27, 2012 - 6:59pm [Dine in]

I've been here quite a few times. The food has always hit the mark at being decent, obviously not as good as authentic sushi places which I love, but it's still good. My personal favorite is the Alaska roll (complemented with nice cuts of sashimi). However, I've some some horrific experiences at this place as well.

First of all, it's always packed like mad during the dinner hours. Expect to wait 20~ minutes if you arrive there after 7pm. There's not a lot of seating area either so privacy is nonexistant. The staff are nice however, and I've never had a huge problem with flagging servers down and they are very helpful as long as you understand that they have like 50000, exaggeration of course, other customers to tend to at the same time (take-out, phone, cashier, packed dining room).

The worst experience at Sushi garden was one night when I decided I wanted to just order two Alaska rolls to go. Our number was given, 085 or something along those lines. After 20-30 minutes and seeing some tables come and go, it was getting extremely aggravating to still be standing in the middle of the restaurant. A few minutes later, I heard 086 getting called out and 092 getting put onto the counter. Honestly, I just wanted my Alaska rolls. After talking to the waitress, she apologized and told me she would check what was going on. It was apparent from the look of dismay and frustration on her face, as well as from my glances at the sushi bar, that the kitchen staff were really just screwing around and working to their own turtlish pace. I guess to them, a packed restaurant means you need to slow your pace down? Whatever.

I left 5 minutes later after finally getting my order a long with a random complementary salad for the wait. The only reason I am coming back to this place is because I believe this was an isolated incident and it's treated us well every other time.

I hear they have a special "Korean style Spicy Chirashi Don" that comes in an enormous bowl that is not on the menu. I'll probably try it next time I go.

Pork Belly Beer House841 Bidwell Street, Vancouver
Authenticity to the MAX
Submitted Monday, February 13, 2012 - 7:43pm [Dine in]

This is the dirtiest, sketchiest, most asian authentic restaurant you will ever go to. There's writing on the walls, 2 of the 3 servers don't really speak english (to the point where we were avoiding the 2 that didn't speak english and were always flagging down the one that does).

However, these guys work hard and deliver some amazing food. For $10, you get one plate of pork belly and beef. Yes, you cook this stuff yourself on the grill at the table. These are all gas powered. The pork belly also come with two dipping sauces and you can wrap it in large lettuce leaves. Mushrooms and onions are also served on the side along with rice and a type of salad. In addition, you can upgrade it your meal at any time to an all you can eat style for $6 more and it also gives you the option of ordering soup. Overall, it's a good experience but the place is poorly ventilated. Highly highly recommended if you like fatty comfort food

Maurya Indian Cuisine1643 W Broadway, Vancouver
Mixed feelings on this one
Submitted Friday, January 6, 2012 - 6:45pm [Dine in]

My girlfriend and I came here last month for a dinner run and were stunned by the dining room when we walked into the restaurant. However, the dim lighting did not do the room justice and before long, we were seated in a small corner near the left/middle of the restaurant.

Our first server was a total douche. I believe we ordered the butter chicken along with rice/naan and their special chicken curry that won some sort of an award in 2009. Both were delicious but we just couldn't wash out the taste of glares and attitude from the waiter earlier. The two waitresses that were helping us for the rest of the night were much nicer, but this guy really killed it for us.

Overall, the food was awesome but I really don't think it's ""better" than Tandoori Kona in Richmond, which serves good curry, in larger portions, at almost half the price. I definitely recommend Maurya if this is your thing but unfortunately I don't think I will be coming back.

Samurai Sushi House5888 Cambie Street, Vancouver
I can't stand it anymore.
Submitted Wednesday, November 2, 2011 - 2:47pm [Dine in]

I used to come here a lot and then frequented Banzai when that location opened in Richmond. Now it's hard for me to say no to sushi whether it be great sushi or cheap sushi thats decent like Samurai. The philosophy behind it is that you come to try it for the size but keep going back because something is in their imitation crab that makes it taste amazing. The fish quality is kind of just "eh" and the large cuts make it gross to eat sometimes but thats okay! I was still visiting regularly (almost once a week) because its nicely priced and I can't afford $100+ authentic Japanese consisting of delicious cuts of fish every day.

HOWEVER. For the last year I've visited less frequently because with no exaggeration, every single time I go... There is a smell that keeps getting worse and worse. One day I decided to stop going simply because I didn't want to deal with it. Today, I was having the craving and since Banzai was too far, I decided to stop by Samurai again to endure the smell but was literally stunned upon entering the store. I can't believe that the smell has reached such an unbearable point. Without ordering, I left immediately and pitied the 5 or 6 patrons still remaining in the store. Please samurai, find out what the hell that smell is so I can go back for your california rolls.

Posh has really gone to the Pits.
Submitted Tuesday, May 3, 2011 - 12:47am [Dine in]

Honestly the last review written for Posh was in 2007. It's 2011 now and it's about $20 now for the dinner AYCE with terrible service that has been spiraling downwards for years. I visit here occasionally because my sister likes it but I cringe every single time she brings it up now.

You could make the stuff they serve you at home easily and not pay $20 for it. But they offer AAA grade beef from Alberta for something like $5 more.

Avoid it if you can..... It's just not worth it anymore.

New owners for a few months now but that doesn't change how delicious the food is.

The ONLY complaint I would have is that they removed my favorite Mountain Roll from the menu (california topped with salmon+spicy crab+green onion). Going back to the nobody home roll for now. Highly recommended if you're in the area

Oh gosh.....
Submitted Friday, June 5, 2009 - 12:01pm [Dine in]

My girlfriend and I came here for our one year and got lucky as walk-ins, only to find every other table had a small reserved sign on it. At first glance, I was pleased as the restaurant was small, but big enough to feel comfortable.

The first sip of tea already surprised me as even that tasted good. Hoping for the trend to continue, we ordered one alaska roll, some sockeye salmon sashimi, one house roll, 2 piece tamago, and one futomaki.

It's ridiculous how good it is. The look of the sushi could do with a little bit of work and refining as it does look sloppy, but it doesn't even matter once it enters your mouth. Unfortunately we didn't have a chance to try the uni that night though. We're students =P

Looking to come back for sure!

Zuushi Garden Japanese Restaurant8780 Blundell Road, #190, Richmond
Average.
Submitted Friday, June 5, 2009 - 11:53am [Dine in]

It doesn't suck like some, but average food at a higher price isn't something that will bring me back. I believe I ordered a house roll, dynamite, and a chopped scallop roll. My sister ordered a dynamite and prawn tempura. After all, it makes sense that you'd come to a sushi restaurant to order the sushi right?

The waitress was very nice and it was relaxing to eat here. However, like I said the main peeve I have with it is the fact that the food is only okay. I could probably get the same quality food somewhere else for cheaper. It's worth a try though, but I won't be coming back.

Ninkazu Japanese Restaurant4231 Hazelbridge Way, #205, Richmond
Richmond's finest, but not saying much
Submitted Monday, February 18, 2008 - 10:51pm [Dine in]

Ninkazu is without a doubt the best AYCE sushi in richmond, but that's not saying a whole lot. It looks really nice when you walk in but I found after checking out the menu that you really aren't paying for a whole lot more than if you went somewhere else. The menu is pretty much limited to a normal AYCE menu. Even if you pay for the deluxe, it's not adding a whole lot to your selection.

However, what food does come is delicious and well-made. I recommend the lobster, soft-shell crab, and ikura. When you order toro here, it comes with a very fibre-y texture to it which makes it quite unenjoyable.

Going back a bit, what food DOES come is delicious and well-made. But not alot of it arrives. We must've waited around 20 minutes between our first and second orders and it doesn't seem necessary to cheat us out of our time and stomach space(with water and tea) given that there are so many people there eating at the same time. Even after that, there were several orders that were cut down on. 10 toro= 6 pieces. 6 pieces=4. 10 prawn tempura= 5 pieces. 6 pieces= 5 pieces.

However, the waiters do do a good job on responding quickly when you need them. Refills and 'lost food orders' came quickly after you ask them, but I guess they shouldn't be getting lost in the first place.

If you live in Richmond and want some good quality AYCE for about the same price everywhere else in Richmond, HIGH RECOMMENDED

Inconsistently good
Submitted Wednesday, July 25, 2007 - 9:16pm [Dine in]

At first, I thought Richmond sushi would be the sushi that represented Richmond. Let it now be known that the name does not make the place better. These guys are good, then get bad the next visit. Since I believe in second chances, I decide to give another few tries and they're all pretty decent. Then downhill again. I don't go to Richmond Sushi anymore because I've found some place better but it isn't as bad as some say. The food is about the same quality as any other AYCE restaurant and there's nothing really wrong with the service. Sometimes they're slow but only because they've got too few people handling too many tables. Sometimes, they have 3 or 4 men handling over 15 tables. The PROBLEM is that they all want to deliver food, and nobody wants to check up on the customers. Decent place, but I've moved on =)

Great service, boring food
Submitted Wednesday, July 25, 2007 - 9:05pm [Dine in]

When you first walk in, you get a bit of a cozy feeling and then are greeted by friendly employees...9/10 times. One of the counter workers yelled at us once. Giving it a chance after that redeemed the place. Anyways, the service at the tables is unbelievable. These guys could really sweet talk you into giving huge tips if you aren't careful XD. The only problem is the food, but I guess that's my own fault. Never order the same thing over and over at ABC. It gets dull. ABC has a fairly wide selection of food for a good reason, and you should take it to your advantage and experiment. Recommended..

Love the food, the ambiance....different story
Submitted Wednesday, July 25, 2007 - 9:00pm [Dine in]

My favorite all-you-can-eat sushi place in all of greater vancouver. Service isn't as bad as it seems on *MOST* days. Sometimes it gets quite bad though. The only problem is the atmosphere you're eating in. It's a bit gloomy with the dim lights and dirty appearing in some parts of the restaurant. However, the food is amazing. Some sashimi problems occur every once in a while when they're using food from a few hours back. The temperature of it kills the taste, but the rest of the menu is consistent and lovely.

Recommended strongly for AYCE lovers.
