My partner and I have been ordering from this restaurant from some time now and have been quite pleased with the selection. Personally this is like a form of "Chinese Food Nirvana" as they rely on the spices and ingredients rather than Mono Sodium Glutamate (a neurotoxin used in most Asian food).
The other good thing about this place is that if you ask them to make adjustments they actually do it. Let's hope that they maintain their consistency for some time to come. Our favorites are the House Special Chow Mein and the Rock Salt Cod or Squid.
Just so you know, this place is really suited for take-out, though there is seating in the restaurant to give you the home-style atmosphere.

My partner and I thought we'd drop by Brown's for a drink and some appetizers so we looked at the menu and decided to try the Lobster Wings ($12), Papaya Salad ($12), Yam Fries ($7), I had a Guinness ($6.5) and my partner had a glass of water (Free). With taxes, just over $40.
We got four Lobster Wings, the salad was pretty filling - my partner gave it to me to finish - and the Yam Fries, while tasty and not oily, left us thinking that we might have gone out to an "All You Can Eat" or Seafood Restaurant.
That being said, if we were dating, she or I would have been impressed by the other paying the bill. A good place to blow your dough.

I realize there may be a few people that gripe about the service at this restaurant, but if you were to wait a few minutes, i.e. have a little patience, you might get what you want.
Personally, I have never really had any issues with the quality of the food or the service and my wife and I used to go to the Sushiya on Granville. We decided to try going to BC Sushi as we didn't feel we needed the charred meat part anymore and we have actually seen the selection and quality of BC Sushi's offerings increase.
The other thing that's good about BC Sushi is that they offer both wild and farmed options which many other sushi places are often evasive about.
I guess the only small thing that I'd like to see them add to their menu would be things like Natto or Tempeh, as they are nice offerings for the vegetarians and can make for good eating and intestinal happiness.
All in all, they're a solid 3 stars across the board and could work their way up to 4s over time.
