Great for big groups

We had a party of 9 recently visit Kingyo on a Friday night. Just to be sure we had a table, we made prior reservation, which they were initially hesitant in accepting. I told them we'd be gone within 2 hours so they agreed to a 6 - 8 p slot.

Once there, we just ordered a bunch of food, from the raw squid in wasabi to the karaage to the ebi mayo to the hot pot etc. Needless to say, we enjoyed each and every dish we ordered.

As you'd probably expect from some izakayas, some of the food were in portions that were too small. However, it's not out of ordinary and pricing is comparable to other authentic establishments around the city. With tip and drinks (each of us had at least one), our bill came to $23 each.

All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better meal. I highly recommend this place. Even better if you can find a group to go with you so you can taste more dishes.

I'd probably come back IF all other restaurants were closed

I had some friends who wanted to try some Indian and we came across this place in the Entertainment Book so we tried it. We ordered a bunch of dishes including the Tandoori chicken, the Lamb, Tikki and the Butter Chicken.

When the food came, we all tried each of the dishes, which were supposed to be spiced mildly. Unfortunately, even for my friend who loved spicy food and ate them frequently, it was too hot. On their account, we were given a small tub of yogurt to help with our flaming tongues. By then, the experience was tarnished and the mood soured. Even though you could argue that spiciness is relative, no where would that pass as mild.

In general we found the food alright/nothing special, and the portions too small for what they were charging for. $13.95 for a meat dish without rice or naan is a rip off.

The service is mediocre, even subpar. It appears to be a family run business that is struggling to stay afloat (we were the only ones there). As such, sufficient staffing is not a priority.

I don't mean to be harsh, but I probably wouldn't go back there, especially if I wanted good value and/or good service. Steveston has other offerings worthy of a visit.
