What can i say its all you can eat
By CanIeathat of Surrey , BC (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, February 21, 2012 - 9:57pm [Dine in]

To all the people whining about this place, really? Its a budget all you can eat place, what did you expect to get wined and dined? I've been going here for quite a few years and enjoy it. If I want to go have some really good sushi i wouldnt go to an all you can eat so neither should you. Go order everything you eat from a normal sushi restaurant and see how much it cost you, you're getting what you pay for here dont expect high class food. It's like going to a cheap buffet and then complaining that you had to get up to get your own food. This place is usually pretty busy so dont expect the waiters to hang around and crack a few jokes they're tyring to get the food out as fast as possible. I go for the late night menu and most of the time get one of the booths which makes it pretty private and nice when you have a big group. Don't let these other reviews scare you, just dont go expecting the best food with the best waiters its an all you can eat so go with that in mind.
I really do wish they had kept the sashimi on the menu though...

Pho 99 Vietnamese Noodle House8611 Alexandra Road, #180, Richmond
Lunch time meal, big dissapointment, small portion
By MISS_FIT of south east vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, February 21, 2012 - 3:29pm [Dine in]

Pho 99 has extremely salty beef soup . We suspect they use msg beef bullion instead of the traditional beef bones, which is a must for good beef stock We ordered two large #1 & #2 Pho with rib beef and pho with rib beef and beef ball. We were both disappointed with the small portions. Come on, rice noodles are cheap and they serve very meager meat portions Don't expect service, They only will take your order and place your food on the table . My favourite Pho place is still the one in Vancouver located on Fraser and 18th Ave.
They have good soup stock and ample portions, unlike Pho 99.

Chop Steakhouse & Bar10251 St Edwards Dr., Richmond
Wonderful Ambiance/ Food and Service falling behind!
By LemonCC of Richmond , BC (4 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, February 21, 2012 - 5:15am [Dine in]

Ate at the Chop at five different occasions. The Steak choices are quite strong. Done to the preference and good quality of the cut. However being a steakhouse is more then just decent quality Steak. Most of the other Entrees and some of the sides are plain average. Service looks good but is young and inexperienced. Todays clientele is more sophisticated and these things get noticed. I'll keep going back for visual effect and ambiance with selected crowd and recommend only selected items from the menu.

Casual Bistro with a Nice Lounge and nice overall interior. Food and Service are Mediocre/Solid. This could and should be brought up to the next level relatively easy. Tuna Steak was a let down but appetizers and Steak met the standards. Waiter made wonderful Caesar drinks. Might go back to try their Prime Rib Special!

Happy to have a nice Greek restaurant in the area. Does not look much on the outside but on the inside is nice and warm. I love their Calamari and Lamb and Baklava. Service is friendly and casual. I would recommend it to others for as a lunch stop. It has potential for romantic dates. Love the Greek Music in the background. Will go back.

Consinstently one of the best steakhouses I have been to. Excellent food and very friendly and professional service. I had their signature Carver salad, altough i am not a blue cheese dressing fan this was wonderful. The Filet Mignon was extra tender and delicious as always and perfectly complemented with red wine reduction. Creme Brule was presented in two different flavours and as a very generous portion.

Sushi was Decent
By joanne79 of Richmond , BC (2 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, February 21, 2012 - 3:01am [Take-out]

Not a huge sushi fan, but Aoi definitely does it right. Had dynamite rolls with california rolls, and a chicken terriyaki. Best terriyaki ever, but the rolls were quite mushy and greasy. Service could've been much better, no fluent English speakers which was kind of a let-down!

Definitely try this out if you're a sushi fan...if not, don't bother..was not anything spectacular.

Come here for dim sum!
By kammage of The Punjabi Market (11 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, February 20, 2012 - 2:59pm [Dine in]

This is my go-to place for any dim sum cravings. I come here with the family and when you have a bunch of family from Hong Kong... you have to trust their food judgement! (Or at least I do.) Anyway, whenever friends want dim sum, I will always bring them here. This place starts getting busy around 11:30 on weekends so your best bet is to come here at around 10. Keep in mind, that this place, of course also has a dinner menu if you want some 10 course Chinese meals. =)

The food: Food is great... there's a good selection. You have your typical stuff like siu mai and ha gao. One of the things they don't have on the carts that roll around is deep fried squid - one of my favourites. I was a bit sad about this but everything else they have makes up for it. Some of the most common things that come around - steamed spare ribs, shrimp eggrolls, chinese donut/bbq pork/shrimp wrapped in noodle, eggplant with shrimp, raddish cake, sticky rice.... the list goes on. Every now and then you'll get a gem like the shanghai soup buns or satay cuttlefish. For the more adventurous... there's tripe, beef tendon, and chicken feet. Then to top it all off, they have mango pudding. This is probably some of the best mango pudding I've had from a restaurant in a while. It's not like that cheap gelatinous mango pudding you get from most restaurants. This one has some good texture to it and melts in your mouth. I always ask for extra condensed milk on it... mmmmm. With that being said, definitely make sure you try and pace yourself so you get a chance to eat all the different types of dishes.

The service: I really like the service. The ladies there are super nice... even if you don't speak Chinese. They're very accomodating and patient. I have a somewhat, annoying group of friends who are all over the place when it comes to ordering/asking for things. One of the ladies there is awesome and made all of us at the table laugh with her antics. One time when I asked her what was on the cart, she even said to me "don't worry, you guys just got here I won't serve you guys dessert yet". I personally thought this was awesome because most cart style dim sum places will just try and force everything at you. Food comes out pretty fast, even though there are times where you'll go a few minutes without seeing any of the ladies with carts around. You don't really notice it though.

The value: Not much to say here. I think it has great value. Everything on the carts are $2.50 per dish. For 8 of us, we ended up paying about 14 bucks each (including tip) and we were stuffed. During the weekdays, if you finish eating and paying before 12, I believe you get something like 10-15% off (possibly more but I can't remember). Awesome!

Ambiance: It's a Chinese restaurant... what do you expect? It's going to be chattery. I think this place makes good use of the space they have. You're not bumping arms with other tables or anything either so you don't need to worry about some yappy patron talking over your conversations with your own table.

If you want a place with good food and you're tight on money (even if you're not), I feel that this place is definitely worth the trip to Richmond.

Su Hang Restaurant8291 Ackroyd Road, #100, Richmond
I will return
By pkwok of Shaughnessy, Vancouver (123 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, February 13, 2012 - 7:37pm [Dine in]

I have eaten here several times over the last few years. The food has been absolutely delicious every single time. Service is slightly variable, depending on how busy the restaurant is (and most of the time it is quite busy). Sometimes they are understaffed, and service can be a little lacking, but whatever staff they have, they do try their best. Sometimes I feel bad for them, as they have to rush in order to attend to all the tables. Despite this, the attitude of the staff is always very good. The decor is one of the best among Chinese restaurants. That huge mural on the wall is really impressive, especially good as a backdrop for photos.

My most recent visit was for dinner whereas previous visits were for lunch. The dinner portions are HUGE, and given the prices they charge and the quality of the food, they are unbeatable value for money.

I will have no hesitation returning to this place and recommending it to others.

Reasonable AYCE sushi
By lbrandt of Richmond , BC (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, February 13, 2012 - 7:19pm [Dine in]

We have eaten AYCE sushi at lunch here a couple of times. The service is quick. My only beef about that is that sometimes the items are placed on the table under your elbow… What is supposed to be hot is hot. I like that the rolls and other items are not too big. There is a big pot of tea. The price is good.

Buffet at River Rock, The8811 River Rd., Richmond
River Rock Buffet (for dinner) is awesome!
By adamsmaddy of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, February 13, 2012 - 12:45am [Dine in]

I've gone to the River Rock buffet on several occasions and was always left satisfied. Although I've heard iffy things about the breakfast, I really enjoyed the dinner buffets I've attended.
Last week we went there on a Thursday night for my dad's birthday. Thursday nights are a bit more expensive (23 or 25 I believe) compared to their advertised week day rate, it was worth it! Thursday night is Memphis BBQ night and it's ribs, brisket, roast chicken, pulled pork, hush puppies, pecan pie, cherry pie and peach cobbler- all the specialties were great!
As well as the BBQ theme items they had a variety of other hot items. Just off the top of my head- they had creamy polenta, catfish, pork buns, dumplings, fried rice, noodle dish, lobster cream sauce pasta, sundried tomato penne, a beef and a lamb dish, and much more.
I read a review saying that they only had a few salad items- they have at least 10 different salads! Maybe more, the salad course is a large course in itself because there are plenty of options to choose from.
As well, I always look forward to the dessert selection because they have a large selection of great desserts.
Service is prompt and friendly, my water glass stays full and as well as any other drinks (pop, juice, coffee, tea and sparkling water are all included).
Over all, my family and I really enjoy the river rock buffet dinner service and do not consider it cafeteria quality at all.

Bellisimo Italiano, Aloha Ono, and O Canada Pizza, Lasagna and Salad
By 8lucky8 of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, February 12, 2012 - 7:03pm [Delivery]

The first time we ordered the O Canada Pizza - this pizza was awesome. The best crust I have had since I was in Italy. The toppings were fresh, the service fast, and the pizza very tasty.

I had some friends over so we ordered the Bellissimo Italiano Pizza, the Aloha Ono Pizza, Caesar Classico, and the Lasagna Primavera. This time we had it delivered and for a Friday night we were amazed that it arrived within a half hour.

The food is awesome, the service amazing, and after having lived in Steveston for years we are delighted that we don't have to wait hours for our pie to arrive anymore!!!
Kudos to the Big Bite Pizza Team

Meh

Submitted Saturday, February 11, 2012 - 1:22pm [Dine in]

I love the Belini's and Bite of Brownie!

I was very disappointed with the management when my steak was not cooked the way I requested. I advised the waitress that my steak was not to my liking, she brought the manager. He said it was impossible that the steak was done properly as the steaks are cooked to temperature. I felt as though I had to argue with this manager when all I wanted a good steak.

I have been to this location many times, I usually have a decent meal and the wait staff are usually always friendly.

Best value for your money

Submitted Saturday, February 11, 2012 - 1:10pm [Dine in]

I always enjoy a steak at the Keg. I usually go for the classic steak with ceasar salad and and loaded baked potato is always yummy :)

Last time I was at the Keg, it was a very busy night and I had made a reservation on the same day, my wife and I showed up and were brought to our table right a way. The best part was hearing another woman say to her husband "Why didn't you make a reservation!?" :)

I do miss the salad bar that the Keg Richmond had when I was a kid, my family used to go to this location every Friday. Now I only get to go a few times a year.

Submitted Friday, February 10, 2012 - 6:21pm [Dine in]

do not expect much when you step into the door of this restaurant. it is just a chinese diner that seemed to have better days..
however if you are really hungry and have limited funds in your pocket, then this can save you

the portions are huge and is usually in combinations with drinks and side

over half the time i would need to doggie bag the remaining food, so its good bang for your buck

the food is hit or miss, but i have my usual favorites so its not too bad

We ate here a couple of times,want to give it second chance by choosing different dishes from the first visit but food still wasn't very good, not really authentic malaysian, The tropika in Vancouver (cambie) was much better. So I guess we won't be visiting this location, instead we will be going to Vancouver for malaysian food.

Terrible Pho Sure and more msg
By KellyV of Richmond , BC (4 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, February 8, 2012 - 2:53am [Dine in]

I used to go to this thaison location every single Saturday with my family. We thought this was the best Pho place ever, cheap and good. Then the quality of their food started slipping. Their broth used to be rich and tasty and then just MSG-tasting. We stopped going here after we broadened our horizons and tried some other places. We then decided never to return to thaison because when it comes down to it, it's just a Pho fast food restaurant. There are so many other choices to go to in richmond.

I visited this place earlier this week for the first time. It was pretty good and probably one of the better Vietnamese restaurants I have tried. They had a variety of food to select from including set meals where you can select the type of noodle soup plus a side dish (e.g. salad roll, skewers etc) and a drink for less than $9

You will know WHO IS WHO? WHAT IS WHAT? who provides you a best service? who will give us a good / high quality of PHO? and environment too. Who is clean and acceptable when you need to use the WASHROOM...good food and good soup,,,
