Tenku Bakudanyaki8740 Charles St, Richmond
Nice treat
Submitted Monday, June 15, 2009 - 2:26am [Dine in]

The bakudanyaki is a nice once-in-a-while treat. It is a giant ball of filling, cabbage, seafood, quail egg, etc. For $5, I find the price a bit high despite its gigantic size. But then again, charging $5 makes reduces the complications of how much is owed, how much change is needed, etc.

The toppings are all unique and tasty. I like to stick with more familiar toppings (i.e. terimayo, curry, wasabi mayo, nori sesame) which are all excellent. Even the not-so-typical toppings (i.e. California [avocado, cram meat] and pizza [tomato sauce, cheese]) are tasty.

There's really not a lot of ambiance-- it's a parking lot but they have a little covered area with small side tables where people can mingle and put down their food.

Service is alright. They are quick to acknowledge you, and are very honest about how long the wait is

Don't have to go downtown for ramen anymore...
Submitted Monday, June 15, 2009 - 2:05am [Dine in]

Finally! A decent ramen place in Richmond!

G-men offers delicious ramen that is very comparable to the ramen places downtown. Their tonkatsu base is top-notch, and their noodles are always perfectly cooked. Go early because they tend to run out of one kind of noodles late in the night.

They have rice dishes, and small items on the menu. Small recommended small items are their gyoza and the chilled egg yolk (forgot the name).

Service is always nice and friendly. G-men is most of the time packed (even at 9:30 at night) but they are quick with delivering food and clearing tables to accommodate the waiting guests.

Not your food court Thai place
Submitted Monday, June 15, 2009 - 1:56am [Dine in]

Maenam is not your run-of-the-mill food court Thai place. This place serves the real deal of Thai cuisine.

Oysters, tom yum soup, oxtail soup, satays are all winners. Duck curry and halibut curry are well-made-- you could taste all the different flavors in the curry but the chef makes it all blend together well. Their Pad Thai is my absolute favorite. It's not the typical peanut butter sauce you get from anywhere else. They use fresh rice noodles and the accompanying sauce just makes it a satisfying dish. Price point is okay, some curry dishes might be small for some people but I find that it's perfect for sharing among 2 to 3 people ordering 2-3 varieties of food.

Deserts were also good-- loved their different flavored ice creams (lychee and mango) and also love the budino.

The only item on the menu I did not enjoy was their roti. Too flat and oily.

Service for the first week was sub par but my subsequent returns (three times since the opening), service has been very prompt, courteous and consistent.

I look forward to going through all the soups they offer and dropping by their lunch/ late night hours to try other items on the menu.

comfort food...
Submitted Thursday, February 14, 2008 - 7:58pm [Dine in]

this place has the best roast pork, bbq pork, and soy chicken ever!! better bbq duck else where though

it's comfort food for me because i know i can count on its quality anytime i go there. soup and veggies are also great.

service is great, the line moves really quickly even during rush hour. when you eat in, they quickly serve you your tea and your order comes really quickly. i once got there when a lot of them were having lunch (around 230pm) and the manager quickly put down his bowl of rice to get me tea and get my order.

however, the floor might sometimes be slippery (oily) so be careful

great food, great price, friendly staff... what's more comforting than that?

Gastropod1938 W. 4th Avenue, Vancouver
gastropod is amazing
Submitted Sunday, January 6, 2008 - 11:49pm [Dine in]

i love gastropod! it's one of the few places i don't mind going to often.

they have a few signature dishes- oysters, salmon, and the chocolate fondant which are all simply yet deliciously prepared. the oysters with "snow" are always fresh and makes you crave more. the salmon is cooked to perfection and the sabayon is a perfect accompaniment.

the chocolate fondant is alright. i enjoy their icemilks and sorbets best though. you can hear them using the machine to whip those up made to order and they go out of your way to make sure you get the flavors you want. the non-dairy dark chocolate ice milk is to die for. you would never believe that it has no dairy in it

i've also tried their pork, chicken, cod, tartare, squid and they never disappoint.

service is very solid and the servers are very knowledgable about the food and wine pairings. as a previous review mentioned, one of the servers need more training regarding the food and drinks. we are frequent visitors and already know some of the staff by name and they make sure to give you the best experience possible

ambience is alright. perfect if you want a nice, intimate meal. it's such a shame that looking from the outside it looks stiff and uninviting, unlike fuel which has the kitchen up front so you can see a lot of action going on. have tried both places and it is so difficult to choose between the two though

topnotch restaurant, looking forward to the chef's future creations

Kisamos Greek Taverna3420 Moncton Street, Richmond
wonderful!
Submitted Saturday, November 17, 2007 - 11:59pm [Dine in]

my friends and i were in the area and decided to try this place out. the restaurant was packed but we were seated in about 15 minutes (table of 8).

my bf and i decided to split the platter and we left satisfied with leftovers for the next morning. the calamares were amazing, even better than the ones we would get in granville island. the meatballs were tender and succulent. the pork and chicken kebabs (??) were okay, a tad dry for my taste. the lasagna type thing they had were great too

other food that our friends had... lamb shanks were good. they were moist and tender. tomato sauce was a perfect consistency

service was alright. kept our water glasses filled, food came promptly.

would return to try other stuff in their menu

Italian Tomato8380 Bridgeport Road, Richmond
i don't get it...
Submitted Friday, November 16, 2007 - 11:32pm [Dine in]

visited Italian Tomato a few days ago, and I don't get why a lot of people enjoy the restaurant.

we were seated quickly. the weird thing was that they seated my bf and i in the busy section although the other side was completely empty. there was only one server in our area while the other servers were enjoying dinner and drinks near the kitchen. i felt sorry for the girl serving us although she did a good job serving everyone without any trouble. she even managed to talk to us (and other tables) in between.

after reading about the big portions, we decided to share the pasta/ pork combo that they offered. the ravioli was okay, obviously not homemade which was disappointing. the sauce was runny, which is how some italians like it. the veal was horrid. it was in a mushroom sauce that looked liked it came from a can and they added some soy sauce for some color.

as a lot of reviews mentioned, come here if you're hungry but not looking for a nice fulfilling meal

won't be coming back any time soon.
