Popeye's Chicken & Biscuits2991 Lougheed Highway, Coquitlam
Nice Fried Chicken Alternative
Submitted Saturday, April 15, 2006 - 2:58am [Dine in]

Popeye's is popular in Toronto but rare in Greater Vancouver. The chicken is both crunchy and tasty. Firmer than KFC but softer than Church's. The biscuits are a must have to try. The jambalya and wild rice are very good.

This restaurant is rather spacious and located in the mall with the Chapters and Saveon Foods.

Shiang Garden4540 No. 3 Road, Richmond
Nice upstairs restaurant
Submitted Friday, March 24, 2006 - 1:54pm [Dine in]

Even though a reservation was made the restaurant still did not have seating available and suggested downstairs after 10 minutes. Do not go downstairs; the ambiance is much poorer than upstairs. Overall once seated the food is very good quality and the price is above average to high. On a value scale this is a pretty good restaurant except for the sometimes iffy service. Highly recommended for Dim Sum. Enjoy.

Robson Sushi Japanese Restaurant1542 Robson St, Vancouver
There are better places
Submitted Friday, March 24, 2006 - 1:48pm [Dine in]

The late food all you can eat buffet at 9:30pm is a very good price. However, everything goes downhill from there. The food is small and warm. Hot food comes warm and cold food comes warm. The food quality is decent but not good quality. The service is rather poor: forgetting orders multiple times and slow service. Overall a bad experience. Come only if you want the cheap food and don't care about quality or any service.

Angel Cafe5995 Fraser Street, Vancouver
Great food
Submitted Friday, March 24, 2006 - 1:44pm [Dine in]

This is a nice chinese restaurant with hot pan served meals. The steak was cooked nicely, not tough or overcooked. The curry beef was little hot/spicy. It could have been a little more milder and tastier. The service was average and sometimes rushed when ordering or too slow bringing out the food. The tomato vegetable soup was very good. Overall a dependable restaurant with quality food. Attached to the restaurant is also the chinese bakery.

Tomokazu Japanese Restaurant1128 West Broadway, #201, Vancouver
Very crowded and busy
Submitted Sunday, February 5, 2006 - 8:33pm [Dine in]

Tomokazu is an very good choice for all you can eat sushi. Cost is $9.95 Lunch, $21.95 Dinner, and $11.95 Late Night after 9:30pm; holidays and weekend add $1. The dinner menu has the widest choices including fresh oysters, cooked oysters, unlimited sashimi, and the usual sushi items. The food is fresh and served quickly and efficiently. Dinner time is very busy and at 9:30pm the place is packed for the late nighters.

Free parking is available in the downstairs parkade.

The negatives of the place were the very sticky floor foyer and a dirty/sticky menu.

Candia Taverna4510 W 10th Avenue, Vancouver
Candia a solid choice
Submitted Monday, January 9, 2006 - 12:15am [Dine in]

Candia is a very good greek restaurant that also serves pizza and pasta. The menu includes are the usual Greek dishes plus dolmades (stuffed grape leaves with meat) as a entree item. The entrees are very large and delicious. The food quality for the Greek dises was very good. I would recommend this place to others. Did not try the pizza or pasta dishes.

The seating can be a little cramped when sitting in the two seater booths but the ambience is very good. The customer service is top notch and the restaurant has a nice home away from home feel. The servers are polite and provide good service.

Octopus Garden1995 Cornwall Ave, Vancouver
Excellent high end japanese sushi fusion
Submitted Sunday, October 2, 2005 - 11:39pm [Dine in]

This is a small little restaurant with a bar, 5 small tables for two, and a nook for maybe 6. The air conditioning is shaped like an octopus. The chopsticks are served with a card with japanese pronunciation of and the english translation.

The food here is sushi with a fusion of western style. The spicy tuna roll was a little bland but the spicy scallop roll rocked! The sashimi deluxe plate was beautifully decorated with a variety of fresh seafood. It was fresh, varied, and very good. For these succulent dishes the prices are on the higher side.

Overall if you want to find fine fresh sushi with an elegant presentation and price is not a concern then this is the place to go.

The restaurants link is here which contains the menu and prices (be warned that the menu looks out of date):

Congee Noodle House141 E Broadway, Vancouver
Good place for lunch, dinner and late night
Submitted Sunday, October 2, 2005 - 11:23pm [Dine in]

A good place to eat. The restaurant is very large and can serve maybe up to 200+ people. There is ample free parking at the rear of the building and they are open to 1:00am weekdays and to 2:00am on Fri and Sat. This is a cash only place. They also do take-out and have BBQ items at the front to take-out.

The food is varied from congee to wonton to noodle and rice dishes. The deep-fried smelt with salt and chili is quite good. The food price, quality and quantity of food makes this place a good value on the price for quantity/quality scale. Items are fresh and of good to excellent quality.

The negative of this place is the average to poor service. The hosts sometimes forget to bring items or take too long getting it. A frequent problem is getting your tea refilled. They don't have a pot of tea for the table so you have to wait to get it refilled if you can signal a host. If you have patience then this is not a problem.

Overall it is a good place to take family or friends for good solid food. This is not a fancy place nor is it a budget place.
