Sushi Hachi Restaurant8888 Odlin Crescent, #1278, Richmond
Best sushi I have tasted in a long time
Submitted Monday, January 5, 2009 - 12:29pm [Dine in]

i am a heavy sushi eater and all my friends know that I cannot get enough sushi. I was honestly blown away by the sushi I had at Hachi Sushi. The best uni and amaebi (raw prawn) hat I have ever tasted and at reasonable prices.

An order of uni sashimi straight from the shell was $18, compared to ~$24 at most restaurants.

There aren't that many cooked dish at Hatchi Sushi; it is a place for sashimi/sushi lover.

The only drawback of the place is the one person wait staff. There is only one waitress for the small restaurant and she gets really busy. So it might take a while to have your tea refilled.

But all in all, excellent dining experience. I intend to become a regular.

(I have accidentally posted this review under the Hachi restaurant in Vancouver. I meant to comment on the Richmond restaurant)

Strawberry Cones Pizza & Pasta4151 Hazelbridge Way, Unit 3180, Richmond
Not worth the money
Submitted Sunday, January 4, 2009 - 4:18am [Dine in]

The signs and brochures of Strawberry Cones were quite impressive. The very attractive menu and graphics made the actual food just that much more disappointing.

my boyfriend and I ordered a seafood spaghetti which looked fantastic in the picture. It tasted worse than our own cooking and it was tiny.

It's really a shame. With such great marketing materials already in placed, if the food were anywhere close to average, i think Strawberry Cone would be a popular spot at the Aberdeen food court.

Chiffon Chinese Cuisine4751 Garden City Road, #120, Richmond
bubble tea place with decent food
Submitted Sunday, January 4, 2009 - 3:48am [Dine in]

Chiffon definitely does not sell "Chinese cuisine". It's a bubble tea place with what I think pretty decent Taiwanese food. I've been there with my parents and my boyfriend's parents. Everybody liked the food and the restaurant is bright and spacious. For the price that they are charging, i really don't have any complaints.

and if you want a place to sit down and chat with your friends, Chiffon is a good choice. It's big enough so there's never a line up and their bubble teas are very solid. I go to Chiffon all the time for casual meals.

Ebisu in Richmond8111 Ackroyd Road, #100, Richmond
Extremely disappointed - highly over priced
Submitted Sunday, January 4, 2009 - 3:29am [Dine in]

My boyfriend and I were looking forward to a night of Japanese fine dining when we visited Ebisu. But not only were the portions of the food unbelievably small, there was no art to the food arrangements or utensils to make up for the tiny portions. The dining experience felt cheap but the bill wasn't.

we paid about $60 for the two of us and left hungry. In all honesty, worst money I have ever spent on Japanese food.

I would highly "not" recommend Ebisu to anyone. I would, however, recommend Sushi Hachi or Tsukiji in Richmond. Now, these two Japanese restaurants know how real sushi is done.
