My previous posting for Daimasu (at the Burnaby location) got deleted, so I guess I'll try to revamp my review one more time. I have been here more than 3 times, and the first time I thought it was okay, and the following times I was disappointed...which will be explained...
In terms of food: their combination meals (i.e. similar to bento box) is decent. Nothing horrible, nothing special. Their shrimp/vegetable tempura is not too bad. The rice with chicken teryaki is fine as well. You could go to other Japanese places and get this similar meal for an even better price. I have gone for the late night deals (maybe call a head and ask when it starts, and when their kitchen closes)...I ordered a bunch of items and I vividly remember seeing the tuna roll look grey, and smell bad-i think i'll avoid the raw stuff here.
Service rating: I am stickler for good service, and this place deserves an F in this department. The host/servers are not friendly, barely crack a smile and take forever to give you your refill on your tea. I remember getting up and having to find a server just to ask for my tea...(since I asked more than once).
Ambiance: It's fine, if you happened to wander in to this place, your first impression wouldn't be so bad. It's cutely decorated, lot's of japanese decor...typical japanese restaurant.
Anyways, this place isn't worth going to. Unless....you are absolutely starving and crave japanese food, and can stand poor service. I'm for sure not going to go here again, unless for some miracle, the owner/manager hires employees that know a little thing or two on good quality service. Therefore, I give this place 2 thumbs down!
