Cozy little Japanese restaurant
Submitted Sunday, November 30, 2008 - 7:06pm [Dine in]

We've ordered take-out from here many times, and have eatin in one of the little booth/rooms once as well. The service is always friendly and the cooks are always smiling and nodding and saying hello/goodbye when we arrive/leave.

We normally get the chicken bento boxes or the beef ones. If not, then it's a usual assortment of sushi rolls like California, Spider, Tempura, etc.

No complaints, I'm always thoroughly satisfied with the bento boxes. We like the little booths/rooms as well.

Huge Servings of Excellent Fresh Food
Submitted Monday, November 24, 2008 - 3:01pm [Dine in]

We've been to this place many many times, although not much recently since moving to Burnaby. We've been to a few parties here as well, and the staff was always more than accommodating.

The food is very fresh and delicious. Even something as ordinary as "tomato soup" here is unique and delectable. We usually get either soups or salads, then pastas or pizzas, then some kind of dessert, usually a crème brûlée. All are extraordinary. The prices are a little high but not when you take into consideration the serving sizes. I almost always finish my pasta plate because it's so damn delicious but every time I do I always regret it because it's so much food and now I can't have it for lunch at work the next day!

The restaurant is very cozy with nice seating in and out (summer) and on two different levels to give it a little different dimension. The service is always fast and friendly.

Specifically, I would recommend the Dragon's Breath Pasta if you like hot Thai-style food. Pretty much all of their pizzas are great.

Great Butter Chicken
Submitted Monday, November 24, 2008 - 2:54pm [Dine in]

For a food court, this is great butter chicken. I had take-out today and $7.60 got me: Rice, butter chicken, salad, naan (nice big piece) and papadum. I don't normally like papadum but this one was pretty good. A lot milder than usual. The naan was thick and soft and the chicken was really good. They included a bit of salad in the container which was good too. I would go more often if I worked a little closer.

Take-out review
Submitted Monday, November 24, 2008 - 1:37pm [Dine in]

I agree with previous posters about calling your order in ahead. Every time I've ordered here it's taken 30+ minutes to prepare. I would never arrive and order take-out in person.

Like others have said, the decor and comfort is not the greatest, but I don't really mind the hole-in-the-wall feel to this place. I haven't eaten in yet but it would seem quiet and cozy, if perhaps a bit cold and lonely!

The food: We've only ever ordered butter chicken (mild and medium) and Naan bread. The chicken and bread are excellent, and probably rates among the best we've had in the greater Vancouver area. It's amazing how varied this dish is from place to place and I'm sure everyone's tastes differ, but this one is right on the mark for us. I just wish it wasn't so damn expensive, granted it always comes with rice so perhaps we can see if it would be cheaper without.

The naan is good, no complaints here.

Take-out review
Submitted Monday, November 24, 2008 - 1:31pm [Dine in]

After a year of moving next door we finally got take-out menus and ordered 3 items last night: Scallop/Shrimp Wontons, General Tso's Chicken, and Lemon Chicken. They said it would be 30-45 minutes so I asked that they call me when it's ready. I got a call 10 minutes later.

Arrived and people were running all over the place, I couldn't really tell where to go, nobody greeted me. Found my way to the bar which also has the cash register. Someone noticed me and I pointed at the take-out bags waiting. Took a minute to get things sorted but overall the transaction smoothly.

Now on to the food. The wontons were just 'ok', we've had much better elesewhere. The General's chicken was not in the least bit spicy as advertised (and normally expected) and the entire texture/consistency of the chicken was the same: mushy. The lemon chicken was way over-battered and quite greasy. The lemon sauce (in separate container so as not to dry out the dish) was not very good.

We were quite disappointed as this place is literally steps from our home.
