Tasty sushi
Submitted Friday, November 23, 2007 - 8:32am [Dine in]

I have been here to this little "hole-in-the-wall"restaurant several times over this past year and find that the food is good each time. The prices are really decent and the staff at the front are extremely courteous and pleasant to deal with.

Yesterday I had a special Vegetarian combo, for $6.99. It included 8 large pieces of Agedashi Tofu which was wonderful; crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside (and I am extremely picky when I get this dish). The special also came with a kappa roll, an asparagus roll and of course the usual miso soup. All of the food was tasty and for the good service and the price I rate this restaurant as outstanding. I will definitely be back when I am in the Davie and Thurlow area.

Great renovations and change
Submitted Sunday, October 21, 2007 - 6:06pm [Dine in]

I used to go to this restaurant for the AYCE lunch and found it to be so-so. Then they had the fire about a year ago and the restaurant went through some pretty major renovations.

Now the place has re-opened and I decided to try it with one of the teenagers. The restaurant no longer offers the AYCE and this was all right by me. I had the miso soup which was decent - I found that it didn't taste like powder like some I have had recently. I also had the Spicy Tuna Don and found the box that it came in was not so very easy to eat the rice with chopsticks, but I did finish it all without using the spoon that the servers provided. The tuna was melt-in-your-mouth tender and the sauce was pretty spicy but had some flavour. The teenager that I brought with me had the Agedashi Tofu and this was excellent. The tofu was crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. She also had the Gomae Salmon Don and found that the salmon was also very tender. The dons were not huge and the size of the pieces of fish was not huge either, but well worth the dollar value. So if you are looking for huge pieces of fish, this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for better quality (not the best) for the dollar value, try this one out.

I found the servers were very attentive and the tea was refilled without having to ask. The owner came over to ask the two of us how we found the food and I did let her know that I found that the quality was much better. So will I be back - definitely!

Third visit
Submitted Saturday, October 13, 2007 - 8:23am [Dine in]

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times now with the kids. Usually we go for lunch since the specials are so decently priced. But last night we went for dinner and service as usual was prompt. We enjoy going to this restaurant more so than Sushi House because of the ambiance (like the last poster noted) and we feel that we can relax here.

The sizes of the pieces of sushi are actually really well done, since you should not have to bite the pieces in half and here you don't have to do this. The quality of the fish though does leave something to be desired. Last night we shared a Smoked Salmon Roll and a Yam Tempura Roll. Both rolls were nicely sized/cut to be able to eat in one bite, which is less messy. But the Smoked Salmon Roll was not great in my opinion. There was very little smoked salmon (just a very thin piece on top of the roll) and mostly avocado and tuna and rice. The Yam Tempura Roll was very tasty though. I also had the Tuna and Salmon Don and one of the kids had the Salmon Don. Both of us noticed that the pieces of fish were large in size (which definitely did not translate to better quality). If anything the quality was very poor. The pieces of tuna had large thick membranes running cross-wise though it which made it very difficult to bite. The salmon pieces weren't as bad, but it was still noticeably "chewier" than at other places that I have been to. But I will say that at least none of the fish was frozen.

We will definitely be back for more of their sushi specials, but not for our usual orders of Tuna and Salmon Dons.

Frozen sashimi
Submitted Monday, October 8, 2007 - 1:58am [Dine in]

I have read many reviews here rating this place quite highly, so I thought that Ia nd two kids would give it a try. We were greeted quite pleasantly by the staff and given the indication to have a seat at one of the available tables. But from there it was all do-it-yourself. We had to get our own menus, get our own tea and water and then had to go to the front counter to order our food. This would not have been so bad if the prices were indicating a lower price than in any other restaurant where everything is served to you. But the prices were the same if not higher than others that I have tried.

So then the food came and the food for the two kids was decent, but nothing spectacular. The rolls were a good size (not so big that you can't eat them in one bite) and the fish was quite tasty. But one of the kids ordered the salmon sashimi and we found that the centre of the fish was still quite frozen. Then my order of Tekka (tuna) don arrived and I found that all the pieces of tuna were a very large size, but were all completely frozen solid. Not just really cold but the fish was actually solid and covered in ice, and I found that I could not eat any of the fish. I did find the rice to be good, and it was actually properly seasoned.

So, all in all, I will not be back as there are places out there where the service and the food is much better in quality.

Baba Sweets & Restaurant7561 6th Street, Burnaby
Great samosas
Submitted Monday, September 17, 2007 - 8:14pm [Dine in]

I have been going to this restaurant for the past few years and find that their samosas are pretty tasty. I have been there when the samosas were 3 for $1, but they now cost 2 for $1, and even at that price they are a deal. Especially when you consider that Save-on-Foods sells smaller ones for $2 each. I especially like getting 6 at a time and packing the leftovers into my lunch for the next two days. I have also taken to ordering other items such as some of their sweets, which I find extremely sweet, but they do finish off a meal of spicy food with just the right touch.

I used to find that the older female was short and rude at times. However, since I have been going there on a very regular basis (about once a week or 10 days) and ordering my samosas and sweets, she has considerably warmed up.

I will definitely be back to try more of their different foods.

Too hot
Submitted Thursday, August 30, 2007 - 5:13pm [Dine in]

We went there today for a late lunch. Upon entry to the restaurant we were greeted and "ordered" to sit at a table where the menus were tossed. The plates and dishes were basically plunked onto the table, along with the tea. I ordered the Spicy Tuna Sashimi Don and my friend ordered the Tuna and Salmon Don. I found that the tuna was still slightly frozen as did my friend. I also found that the spicy sauce was simply hot chili sauce, with little flavour, just really hot. We also found the rice to be plain steamed rice (not the flavoured sushi rice) that was very hot and not quite fully cooked. Then, I had to make two requests for more tea as the staff there tended to ignore their customers once their food was delivered. This was even though it wasn't very busy and there were only a few tables with customers and many staff that weren't doing anything.

But I have to say the funniest thing that did occur was while seated eating our meal, a person walked in and delivered two large pizzas from Canadian Pizza, for the staff. Now my question is, if the staff don't eat their sushi, should we? Will I be back, not likely when I can go down the street to another sushi restaurant and have better sushi and better service.

Average all-u-can-eat
Submitted Wednesday, August 15, 2007 - 2:43pm [Dine in]

We decided to go to this restaurant for the all-u-can-eat sushi and found that in comparison to their location in Metrotown, this one is far better. Which isn't saying much, really. The food is average for the price ($10.95 for weekday lunch), the sushi is okay, but the hot food is delivered quickly and is fairly tasty. We had decent service, finding the servers were polite and quick to help us out with any questions we had and any special requests.

We have done several take-out orders from this restaurant as we work in the area and have found the takeout orders bigger and tastier. The sashimi in the take-out orders was better than the all-u-can-eat orders in both quality and quantity. I guess you pay for what you get.

So will definitely be back for more take-out orders but not likely for the all-u-can-eat fair.

Tasty sashimi
Submitted Tuesday, August 14, 2007 - 6:31pm [Dine in]

I decided to give this restaurant a try, to see if it would be worth it to take a couple of kids there. I walked in, and as soon as I entered the restaurant, I was greeted by the employees behind the sushi bar. The restaurant is small and cramped, with little ambiance, but I find that this is common for most small sushi restaurants. I was seated promptly, and was given a menu along with a cup of tea. I decided to try the Spicy Salmon Don and a miso soup. At about this time, three more tables filled up with people and each new group that walked into the restaurant were greeted by the staff.

The miso soup was brought as soon as I ordered, and it was tasty, but about the same as most other sushi restaurants. Then the salmon don was brought. The bowl was average in size, but I thought that the food was beautifully presented. The salmon was covered with a special sauce that was spicy (but not too hot). Under the salmon sashimi was a good amount of shredded daikon and then the rice. The rice was proper spiced sushi rice and was great with the sauce and sashimi. I found the staff to be attentive and pleasant and had no problems getting my tea refilled.

I then saw a plate of sashimi being delivered to the table next to mine. I thought that the sashimi was a beautiful piece of art and was informed that it was Sashimi for two. The amount of fish on the plate was plentiful, and I could see myself ordering this if I am able to return with friends.

All in all a good experience and I will be back.

Sushi Tang546 6th Street, New Westminster
Decent food for value
Submitted Tuesday, August 7, 2007 - 11:02pm [Dine in]

I went to Sushi Tang for a quick snack, with a friend's daughter. We decided on the 10 pieces of salmon and tuna sashimi. There are other combo meals that are better, but at the time we did not want any rolls.

The restaurant had one other table full of young people and there were two groups that were waiting for some take-out orders. Our food only took about 15 minutes to be delivered and I found the sashimi to be average. The size was great, not too big as some restaurants are doing. But I did find that the tuna sashimi was still slightly frozen in the middle of the pieces.

But otherwise, the food was decent, the service was also decent and I will definitely be back for more sushi.

Sushi?
Submitted Saturday, July 7, 2007 - 10:37am [Dine in]

I decided to try this place Thursday evening, since I had been here before and had good food and good service (a few years ago). I had two kids with me that were keen for some sushi so went with the Japanese food menu. The miso soup was the usual fare, so nothing to complain about. The youngest kid had a bento box and the chicken terriyaki was tasty as was the tempura (not too greasy). But the sushi was something else. I had a sushi combo as did the older kid. The nigiri sushi pieces on hers were large (but she indicated that the fish was tough and hard to bite), and the rolls definitely left something to be desired. The California rolls were made with some foreign meat (did not look or taste like crab or even the imitation crab that most restaurants use). The tuna rolls were also very strange tasting. The rice was dry and the rolls fell apart as soon as you picked them up with chopsticks. And for 3 combos and 4 soft drinks, the price was not as cheap as you would expect for this type of food.

So, will I be back? Definitely not for sushi, as there are too many other sushi restaurants in the area that are better. May try to return to check out their other food.

Sala Thai888 Burrard, #102, Vancouver
Not as good as before
Submitted Sunday, June 10, 2007 - 9:49am [Dine in]

Went to the Sala Thai Restaurant with a friend and found that the food quality and quantity has definitely gone downhill. We had to ask several times to get more water and more hot water for our tea, even though we were there when it wasn't too busy. The food was decent though and I really enjoyed the pad thai, the red curry with chicken and the angel wings (stuffed boneless chicken wings). But like other posters have said, the trend of these restaurants in the downtown area is catering to the tourist dollars, not the locals. So will I be back - most likely not.

Unbelievable sushi
Submitted Sunday, April 22, 2007 - 11:52am [Dine in]

I have been to this restaurant several times, mostly on the weekends, before heading to work in the area. The servers are always pleasant, they remember me each time I go there. The sushi is large, but unlike what Maverick may think, it isn't the amount of rice that makes them big, it is the actual fish and other ingredients. The fish is always fresh and the other dishes they serve (donburi and udon bowls) are tasty and very filling. Will return even if not working in the area.

Good takeout sushi
Submitted Thursday, April 19, 2007 - 9:41pm [Dine in]

I tried one of the sushi combos from this small "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant and found the fish to be fresh and they actualy use real seasoned sushi rice (most sushi restaurants use plain rice). The place is pretty tiny and so I did the take-out and when I finally did eat the pieces they were still warm and tasted absolutely wonderful. Will definitely be back to try more of the combo meals.

Decent Chinese food
Submitted Friday, April 13, 2007 - 1:48pm [Dine in]

I have been going to this restaurant for several years, including when they were at their old location on 6th Street in Burnaby. This is a small family-run business with a little help from employees. The family (Jenny and Simon) are always pleasant, making all who come in feel welcome. Sometimes the service is a little bit slow, especially in the afternoons or during the mornings when it can be very busy. I have found the food (both the Canadian and Chinese) to be decent and they will cook it to your request of how spicy you want. I will definitely continue eating here and enjoying the great friendships I have made there.

Decided to try this small sushi restaurant because of some of the reviews that I had read recently. I have to say that I agree that the prices are decent and the service was great. I had the Spicy Combo and found the sushi to be fresh and tasty. Will be back for more tasting in the near future.
