Tatsu Japanese Bistro1441 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
The Best in the Area.. Excellent Sushi.
Submitted Monday, May 7, 2012 - 1:14pm [Dine in]

Tatsu was a very pleasant surprise. We eat Japanese at least once a week, and this restaurant rates favorably with others we've tried.
The restaurant is comfortable and clean and service was very attentive and prompt. The sushi was superb - excellent, fresh fish with perfectly seasoned rice; entrees cooked to perfection.
We found the prices to be very reasonable indeed for really good food. If you do not like sushi there are many other options and a helpful staff to help you chose. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Ajisen Ramen4380 No. 3 Road, #1190, Richmond
Tasty Ramen in Richmond
Submitted Wednesday, March 26, 2008 - 2:00am [Dine in]

One of my favorite place to visit, when it's rainy and cold outside. I live near downtown and it usually takes me about 25 mins to get there, but I must've been eating there a lot, since waitstuff started to recognize me and my friend. Ramen here is different from what you get in kitaro, Motomachi Shokudo, or Benkei. I was told from my Japanese friend that the broth is more like southern style with milky and opaque texture. I tried their Spicy pork, Soft Rib, kimchi bbq ramen and all dishes were outstanding. Noodle is little thinner and genetic looking than other ramen places mentioned above, but nevertheless cooked to perfection with right amount of tangyness. Service has been pretty good so far. Try them out!

Worst.
Submitted Wednesday, September 5, 2007 - 1:59am [Dine in]

It's been more than year since I wrote any reviews. I was happy reading other people's comments and had nothing to add or subtract until today. I remember seeing some bad reviews of this restaurant and the name stuck in my head. Today I was driving home and saw this restaurant open late night so with little bit of curiosity, I decided to give it a try. What a colossal mistake! I should've kept on driving. I've had some bad meals in my life time, but this place by far surpasses every single one of them. 1. Where are the wait stuff? they were like non existent. I had to flag them down hard and I mean real hard. 2 grumpy looking waitress came to my table and she kept on speaking mandarin even though I was speaking in English. Wth? I am not from Taiwan. 3. Table was dirty as other reviewers have noted. 4. First spoonful of food in my mouth, I almost spat all out. immediately noticed that they are too salty. I am used to eat salty foods like pho, ramens or even heavily seasoned Brazilian meats, but this was truly out of this world - heart stopping saltyness + no doubt they use tons of MSG. 5. one small hair was found in my food. I flagged down waitress and her responses were like 'so what?' with another mumbling in madarin which I could not understand. at this time I got really angry and almost left the place without paying. 6 I calmed myself down while drinking canned apple soda which is only non-negative experience I can report. 7. I went to their counter to pay after waiting forever to get my bill. I paid in $50 bill and later at home found out my changes were exactly $10 short even though I did not left any tip. LOL I am so mad.

Outstanding
Submitted Tuesday, January 31, 2006 - 12:20am [Dine in]

I went to this place as a part of Dine Out Vancouver and was throughly impressed with their food and the quality of service.

First course - crispy duck salad with watercress and radishes bit of Asian influenced dish with crunch duck and bean sprouts mixed with sweet and sour sauce (little bit sweeter side for my taste but worked well with duck.) 4/5
Two different kind of fresh baked bread were served with butter and olive oil before the main dish. My friend and I loved them! 4.5/5

Main Dish - I had a Smoked Sablefish with crispy brandade. Wow I don't think I ever had a better tasting sablefish. Perfectly cooked with hint of smokiness and puree sauce enhancing the flavour. How can you ask for more? Pure heaven. 5/5
I tried my friend's rosted rack of pork and didn't like it as much. By nature of pork meat, the flavour of sauce had to be strong and again it was too sweet for my taste. 3/5

Dessert - Chocolate semolina cake with cinnamon chocolate mousse and banana ice cream. I was pretty full when this dessert came out but had no problem finishing it. 4/5

Service - We were sitting at the bar and their manager David? did very good job serving us. He also shared secrets of how to make special drinks. :) Very professional and friendly while never intrupting our conversation. 5/5

Overall I feel hard earned money well spent. 5/5

deserves 4 or 5? not really..
Submitted Wednesday, January 25, 2006 - 2:09am [Dine in]

I am writing this here because the person before me sounded a little fishy. This person sounded as if he (or she) is working for the restaurant. If not, my apology. But really, why are you listing all the prices and telling us how many chairs they have? Somehow your review doesn't look validating and has the feeling of an advertisement. You must love this restaurant so much that you have to have their menu memorized and keep their floorplan? LOL.. Anyway sorry, I've been to this restaurant and I would say some of their dishes are indeed Ok. But I wouldn't say they are great. Try Yanaki or Sushiyama for similar price range. Or better yet try Tojo's or Black Tuna (considerably more expensive but one of the best in Vancouver.)

Osaka Teppanyaki1788 W Broadway, #103, Vancouver
Perfect!
Submitted Sunday, January 22, 2006 - 11:12pm [Dine in]

This place gets first 5/5 for any restaurant in Vancouver I reviewed.
Simply one word.. Amazing. I totally recommend this place to anyone who wants to try out different kind of dining experience. Teppanyaki style food can be hit and miss depends on who is cooking (Kobe Steak house) but not this place. Every time I visited, they delivered. top quality stuff. I personally like their filet mignon + prawn dish most and they simply melt and dance around in your mouth. Can't wait to go back!

One minor thing: you and your friends will definately smell like BBQ after eating here.

Very Nice!
Submitted Friday, January 20, 2006 - 7:46pm [Dine in]

Wow I am really impressed with this new (opened 6 months ago?) restaurant. Very nice French style food. Fast and attentive service plus good selection of wine. This is one of few dining experience that went so flawlessly. Portions were bit smaller side but it is easily compensated by fine presentation and sophisticated flavour from our dish. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and gave as a warm welcoming service. I would definitely go back.

snobby waiter
Submitted Monday, January 16, 2006 - 12:54pm [Dine in]

I would say this place has average food (above average for seafood) and below average service. somewhat overated. We went for brunch and our waiter was really aggressive and acted like a salesman from the futureshop.

Nor Boo Korean Restaurant1536 Robson St., Vancouver
2.5/5 overall
Submitted Sunday, November 27, 2005 - 1:36am [Dine in]

look out! this place is very popular among Koreans (mostly language students) expect very long line up and painfully SLOW services.

However I admit this restaurant brought out better tasting Korean food than any other ones I tried on Robson St. If you are looking for better tasting Korean food than NorBoo, you should go Burnaby or Coquitlam.

Try out if you have lots of time in your hand..

Other than long line up and somewhat slow service. This place is the best Japanese noodle place in Vancouver. My brother who lived in Japan for three years agreed too. :)

Wow.. what happened?
Submitted Tuesday, October 25, 2005 - 2:01pm [Dine in]

Agree with reviewers below,, I've been this place since it opened up and noticed how suck they've become recently. Their service is just poor and food is not as consistant as before. Last time I was there *like one reviewer said before me - they played Naked music nude dimension 1 CD over and over again I must've heard it 3times that night... really bugged the hell out of me. I mean at least get a CD changer or change the cd once in a while for godsake. Not going back again..
