I've been looking for good Korean food in Richmond and sadly I'm still looking. This place looks lovely and reminds you of home. Very spacious too. So props for that. However, their menu isn't as big as other restaurants; it doesn't have a lot of small dishes. They have meals, meat dishes, platters, and large hot pots. So we just had two personal meals. They are very stingy on the side dishes. Kimchi are not refillable. The owner was reluctant to even refill the other side dishes. I think there's only 1 refill on side dishes other than kimchi. The salad that comes with the meals was combined into one plate, assuming we want to share our food. But the salad was so small, it was meant more for one person. The seafood/beef tofu soup had mostly mussels and 1 half piece of shrimp. The bowl itself is smaller than typical Korean restaurants. they try to make this up by offered a few leaves of lettuce & a half bowl of congee. Medium was not hot enough for my bf and he found it lacked in flavor. It had almost no beef in it. I had the stirfried beef udon. There wasn't enough beef and many of the pieces had a lot of fat in it. However, everything was hot (but all Korean restaurants make this a priority) and the udon was quite tasty. Still not as tasty as Good Friends. But $9.99 per meal isn't worth it when we can get a bigger bowl & better taste for $8.95 that includes better & unlimited side dishes. The side dishes did not have enough variety and I didn't want to eat them all like I usually do at some really good restaurants. Perhaps their lack of MSG is the reason for the meal not being satisfying at all, but then I'd rather eat at another restaurant even if it has MSG as long as it tastes better. We left still thinking that the best Korean restaurants are in Burnaby & Coquitlam, with a couple in downtown.
We learned of this restaurant through Dine Out Vancouver. All the menu offerings looked tempting, so we booked. Later we discovered some negative reviews on this website and had second thoughts.It was Sat. night and not much chance of getting anything else on short notice so we chanced it. we had our fingers crossed on that long drive from New West. and were very pleased to find we worried for nothing.
I had lobster, done to perfection, and my wife had a delicious (and also done to perfection) salmon wellington.
The service left nothing to be desired, we didn't have to wait long between courses, and plates were cleared away within minutes of our being done with them. The servers were friendly and efficient,and a window seat was a bonus,even though it was dark out.
All and all a pleasant expierience and well worth the drive.
My mother usually goes to costco...to shop. But when I go with her, we sometimes go eat at the Costco Restuarant. The food is cheap, but great at the end of the day when you are tired and hungry...which is usually me. The hot dogs are oily, but what hot dogs aren't? The hot dog combo is $1.50 for a long hot dog and a refillable drink.
There are other great combos, like the pizzas.
My dad is a very picky eater. And the fact that he used to go the Alleluia every morning to eat breakfast will suprise you. Inside, it is a clean and comfy place. The parking lot is usually full because there is so many people going there. Especially on Saturday nights. My favourite food there is the baked minced beef spaghetti. And yes, it is baked. The drinks there are okay, but if you live in Richmond, you should definately try it out.
If you are a person with a large appetite, you should go to Aji Taro. They offer a variety of Japenese food for a great price, if you're going to take the all you can eat side.
It used to be really disgusting, but that was 6 years ago. The bathrooms now are not AS dirty as the last time I ate there.
Try it again.
we went here as a party of 6, i like the seating here as there are lots of booths and the dining is quite private. We sat down ordered from the menu as all you can eat. Food was very good, and came out quick. There was no service to speak of as there was no organization. All the service staff were doing the food running, with no one in charge of looking after the tables. Very dis organized, as we did not have a waiter, just all these food runners that are on the way back to the kitchen, that you would yell out and hope they would stop to service your table.
Anyways, it is what it is. I actually had a pretty good meal, besides the lack of service, there was a diner at the next table that was having a spirited conversation with his dinning companions. He was literally yelling at the top of his lungs speaking his native language(mandarin) having a great time. Pretty annoying for the rest of us around his table having to listen to it while eating. Not the restaurants fault, just takes away from the experience. when we were done, we had to ask at least 5 times for the bill from different servers on their way back to the kitchen, and leave the table full of dirty dishes and still boiling hot pot, because there was no one that wanted to service our table,
Anyways, i left the appropriate tip for the level of service experienced here, we'll have a better meal sometime else, somewhere else. pity, i felt the food was pretty good.
I went here for the dine out vancouver menu. the seafood chowder was ok.. then i ordered the ribs and prawns for my entre and the ribs were sooo fatty that i only had a bite or two and the prawns had no flavour at all.. for dessert i had the creme brule and the top of it wasn't even crispy... so food was not good at all. and on top of that, the service was sooo slow.. we were the only table in there so they had no excuse.. i would not go back to this restaurant.
