Being a Vancouver resident, it was a interesting place. Mosaic was a great central location in downtown. It was close to the city centre, water front, main roads and a view of the spectacular mountains. Server from the sevice staff was prompt and friendly. The decor inside was new, simple with some modern accents and lots of empty seating during 6pm. I ordered salad and medium rare steak. The food quality is a take it or leave it motto. You get limp greens in salad and a steak which butter doesn't even melt. The server was quick to address the unmelted butter. It was brought back into the kitchen and 5 minutes later. The butter was oozing all over the luke warm firm steak. I managed to chew on a few bites on the steak, returned the steak back to the kitchen and ask for the bill. Quality standard for a tourist, where they usually don't return for a second visit.

This has got to be the flag ship of all Thai restaurants.
Nice outdoor patio / Great view of False Creek / Authentic Thai food flavour that consistanly taste good on every visit.
Menu is extensive:
good selection of appettizers (Shrimp Cakes are to die for)
BBq Chicken (tasty and soft)
Desserts are alittle disappointing (fried bananas are the only thing good)
Wine list matches well with Thai food.
I rate the Ambiance Poor due to the lack of upkeep:
Patio lacks eye appeal eg. no fencing or decor.
Front doors have seen many years of use and one of the doors are missing the handles.
Some servers lack proffessionalism they are usally chatting away speaking in chinese with other workers. This is a large restuarant and if the workers aren't paying attention you can expect lengthy waits.

Most of the Japanese restaurants in Vancouver are Non-Japanese owned.
Kibune is a Family Japanese Owned and operated busines where
the overall quality and flavor of the food is quite good.
Certainly this place isn't out to offer the cheapest prices in town, but then again it's in Kits. expensive rent
Extensive menu and our server recommened thier signature dish "Terriyaki Chicken" , Spinich appettizer, and sushi boat sampler.
Now for the food :
Terriyaki Chicken was Tasty, soft, well seasoned without the bottled taste.
Cooked Spinich appetizer was bundled up in a nice presentation with soy sauce dip.
Sushi Boat Sampler - all the firm sushi were percisioned cut and fresh.
Friendly , cozy Japanese theme atmosphere with quality food to match.
