Minoas Greek Taverna3823 Kingsway, Burnaby
MINOA'S -- Still one of my favourite places in all Vancouver
Submitted Wednesday, October 30, 2013 - 11:16am [Dine in]

Been going for years now. The owners and staff always greet me and my business associates, family and friends with a genuine warm welcome, followed by delicious cuisine and great music.
Minoa's is a true gem in the city.
The food is always fresh and delicious. The salads are crisp and the food always prepared perfectly.
My favourites are pastitio, stuffed peppers and saganaki.
My friends like the fried livers and traditional Greek dishes.
There is ample parking in the back.
It is nice to walk up well-worn slightly creaky stairs (reminds me of my grandparent's home in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan) and be greeted with a smile by the owners.
Best place to sit for private conversations and intimate dates in on the enclosed balcony.

Thai Box 2 Go418 6th Street, #110, New Westminster
Thai Box 2Go ... love the food, the service, the name, the smells...
Submitted Tuesday, April 23, 2013 - 10:27pm [Dine in]

Been to Thailand twice. The food there is incredible, however this new restaurant is beyond words. I'd give six stars if it were possible.

I took my mother and my cousin on opening day. My 72 year old mother had Thai food for the first time. She ordered the prawn with vegetables in a black bean sauce. She was nervous at first but after a the first taste she was hooked and said it was wonderful. Kudos to the chefs because she is a critical customer. My cousin ordered chicken in a peanut sauce, surrounded by freshly steamed broccoli. Another homerun there. I had the yellow curry with chicken as my entre (not too spicy, creamy sauce ... delicious again. We ordered Also veggie spring rolls. There were only four so we had to do rock-paper-scissors for the last one. My cousin won out. .. so we ordered another round of four for dessert.

Been back many times already. I wish it were closer and I would go daily for their specials. Very reasonably priced. I saw a lot of take out so I assume they are doing well. The service is prompt and the servers seem genuinely concerned that I am / we are enjoying our food and the experience. Everyone I have gone with or taken for the first time has loved the food. Not too spicy, unless you ask for it that way.

Smells wonderful from the street and even better inside.

Love the entrance area with the beautiful colours. The cat (ceramic?) with the waving arm in the alcove is funny. I'd like one of those for my home. Also loved the decor with the Bhudda reliefs on the wall.

This place is a jewel. Best Thai food I have ever had.

I am a severe critic and don't usually write reviews but this one Thai Box 2Go (2 Go?) is my new favourite.

Go check it out. You will love it.

Love this place. Found it by accident last month. The food is first class. The service is prompt and the waitresses are lovely. Great value. The parking lot is a mess and always packed. The tables are too close to each other to have a decent conversation so sit at the bar. The chefs greet us each time. There is never a problem with the order and the food is served promptly with very little delay. The tuni sashimi is my favourite. The agadeshi tofu is a close second. Third would be the dynamite roll/cone. If I am within 15 minutes of the restaurant I always make a detour to eat there. My friends and I love it. I eat sushi and Japanese all the time in Vancouver and know quality. This place is great.

Kiku Sushi4986 Kingsway, Burnaby
One of favourite places in the city .. Kiku is always wonderful. Highly recommended.
Submitted Tuesday, May 18, 2010 - 8:19am [Dine in]

Although I am surrounded by dozens of incredible traditional sushi and contemporary izakays restaurants in downtown Vancouver I do make regular pilgrimages out to Kiku Sushi in Burnaby because the quality, portions and service are so incredible.

The owner is always there ensuring that the quality never wavers. The staff is incredibly attentive and pay extreme attention to detail. I normally start with the avocado roll and then move up to their Dragon Rolls, Caterpillar rolls. Occasionally I opt for their delicious nabeyaki udon (tempura on the side so it stays cripsy).

I recommend Kiku highly to everyone. I have been going for many years (5?) and it is one of the only places in town I know I can always rely upon.
