A bit more expensive, but you get what you pay for
Submitted Tuesday, January 17, 2012 - 12:37pm [Dine in]

The food is the best for AYCE that I have tried. The prices are higher as well because of that. We haven't had a problem with the service, but we don't feel it is anything special. Nice atmosphere. It is a higher quality Japanese AYCE.

It is best to make a reservation. It is a busy place.

Favorite Happy Hour AYCE
Submitted Tuesday, January 17, 2012 - 11:13am [Dine in]

This is my favorite AYCE for Happy Hour. It is a good price and what makes this place even a better value than most Japanese AYCE is the free pop/soda! It is hard to come here for happy hour (4-6:30), but if we can, we do. The quality is a bit lower than other AYCE, but it is good enough for me.

Favorite Late Night AYCE
Submitted Tuesday, January 17, 2012 - 11:10am [Dine in]

The price is good for Late Night all you can eat. The service is quick, the food comes out fast and is pretty good quality for AYCE. For the price, it makes it my favorite for Late Night. We come here once a week because of that.

Candia Taverna4510 W 10th Avenue, Vancouver
Huge portions cooked well
Submitted Tuesday, January 17, 2012 - 11:06am [Dine in]

This is my favorite Greek restaurant in Vancouver. Massive portions, which makes the typical Greek restaurant prices worth it. The size will fill you for dinner and then lunch the next day. It has a nice atmosphere, lots of wood. Feels like a Tavern. Service is mediocre. Really close to UBC (5 Min bus). Problem is, I don't live nearby :( or I would go more often.

Greek Food is good
Submitted Tuesday, January 17, 2012 - 11:01am [Dine in]

I love Greek food. However, this restaurant's Greek food is no better than any other Greek places I've been to. It is a nice location on Robson which is the only advantage it has over the other Greek restaurants. Not my favorite Greek restaurant either. Nothing to complain about except the prices.

My favorite Vietnamese restaurant for subs
Submitted Tuesday, January 17, 2012 - 10:58am [Dine in]

They serve the best Vietnamese subs in Vancouver. The rest of the menu is small, not many options other than subs. However everything we had here the 3 times we gone is better quality and better cooked than any other Vietnamese restaurants. Less variety, better quality at this place.

And worth the line-ups on the weekends.

Bob Likes Thai Food3755 Main Street, Vancouver
Its just another Thai Restaurant
Submitted Tuesday, January 17, 2012 - 10:54am [Dine in]

Its nothing special. Same Thai dishes cooked the same way. It didn't taste any better than most Thai restaurants I have tried. Don't expect much, then you won't be let down. There is a few Thai places down Main. I woulnd't recomend this one, but I won't say "Don't go there"

Pearl Fever Tea House2182 Western Parkway, Vancouver
My favorite BBT place
Submitted Monday, January 16, 2012 - 6:09pm [Dine in]

The atmosphere is above average compared to other BBT joints. No boxes in the hallways, very clean restrooms, clean (if not ridiculously busy) seating area, and modern.

The service is almost always friendly. Better than any other BBT place. Some barristas are extremely fast and fun to watch.

The pearls are done right, might not be the best, but you can tell they do it right at least.

The drinks have a good variety. And they are done well. You can also ask the server to modify the dirnk in many ways to suit yourself.

The prices are going up, but it seems out of necessity. The gift card deal is great, it comes to buy 5 or 6, get one free.

I'm not going to say the best, but definitely my favorite.

Great, tasty food.
Submitted Monday, January 16, 2012 - 6:01pm [Dine in]

This is the only Xinjiang restaurant I have tried in Vancouver. I don't know of any other. But I sure do love the food!

They have great da-pan-ji (sorry for the spelling). I really want to come back to this restaurant. A lot of lamb, a lot of cumin, and nicely spiced. Not too hot, but just enough to have you addicted.

Service was there, don't expect much in that department.

The atmosphere is nothing special.

The parking is absolutely ridiculous. They have spots dedicated to certain restaurants in the parking lot. A terrible decision by the property management. I couldn't find a spot so I parked in another restaurant's spot that was very empty only to be scolded by the old lady that owns the restaurant which I stole the spot from. Finally after circling a few times, a spot opened. And it is Richmond, people will wait in the middle of the lane until someone leaves. Very frustrating. One restaurant put up pylons and empty paint containers in some empty parking spots so they can save them for there customers. I kicked them over in anger.

Remember I did say I really want to come back. That means the food is absolutely fabulous. It makes the poor parking situation, average service and atmosphere all disappear.

Himalaya Restaurant6587 Main St., Vancouver
A nice buffet restaurant
Submitted Monday, January 16, 2012 - 5:49pm [Dine in]

Whenever I'm around Main Street around lunch I head over here. It is a decent buffet. I don't agree with the price, but it is not overpriced.

You usually find happy service. The buffet is usually full, sometimes there is a wait for Naan or Samosas.

I have had better Indian/Himalayan buffets in Vancouver, but it is the best for the price in the area. There is a Vegetarian one nearby that I have heard good things about, but I'm far from a Vegetarian.

Lucky Noodle3377 Kingsway, #3, Vancouver
My favorite Hunan place in Metor Vancouver
Submitted Monday, January 16, 2012 - 5:44pm [Dine in]

I have yet to find a better Hunan restaurant in Vancouver or anywhere. The food is authentic from what I'm told by those who would know. Hunan food is spicy, but not numbingly spicy. It has other flavours besides only hot, peppery spiciness like Sichuan food.

You can tell they put in a good amount of effort into making the dishes. I have yet to have a dish that I did not enjoy. I come here once a month and always try something I have not tried on the menu. I even recommend some of the pork stomach. That is amazing if you know me.

The service is grand. Very friendly people. The chef/owner seems to enjoy what he does since he is always smiling.

You can tell that they have at least tried to add some decor, it is alright and at least clean.

If you like spicy food, you must try here.

Kishimoto Japanese Kitchen + Sushi Bar2054 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
The best tasting and looking sushi I have ever devoured
Submitted Monday, January 16, 2012 - 5:33pm [Dine in]

The hardest part is getting yourself to destroy something so well crafted. They make it look so nice. But once you taste it you can't stop yourself from ravaging the rolls.

The service is fine, lots of smiles and hardworking ladies. If it gets busy, you might have to wait a little, but not long.

The atmosphere is great. Very clean. Maybe not as much decor as other Japanese restaurants, but that can be a good thing.

The price is the only thing I am concerned of. It is definitely worth what you paid. More expensive than most sushi joints, but that is because the quality is much better. So you get what you pay for.

I'll come back. For sure. But not everyday, because I am not a rock-star. Once a month fits the budget.

You must try this place if you haven't done so.

For those who care, the people are Japanese who are making the sushi. I personally don't care, but some people do.
