Asian Fusion In A Flash. They specialize in gourmet take out meals and quick wok fries.
The food was much better than I expected based on the price being reasonable for the area. The staff were very freindly and right on top of everything. I read the reviews here beforwe trying it and they werte all pretty positive excepot for one and his main complaint was that the waitress was too freindly and talked to him. I actually think that is a positive. If you want to work on your laptop and be left alone, then go to a Satrbucks. If you want great food, nice atmosphere and freindly staff, go here.
Great little place. If you don't want to spend $100 for dinner for two in Yaletown, this is a good choice. We thought the food was fantastic. Very tasty. Good value for the money.
A nice change from some of the local chains.
The only bad - no liquor license.
We had dinner here and went to the bar across the way for a drink after.
My friend and I really enjoyed our summer lunch on the patio today in this little place tucked away off the beaten path. It’s so tiny, I was surprised it offered table service, indoors or out. Our waitress was very friendly and made great suggestions. We decided to eat tapas. Amazing food with wonderful flavours. My friend’s vegetarian, and I nearly am, so we had the delicious garlic soup with spinach, Thai tofu bites, tahini broccoli, sweet onion cakes, and sizzling bean duo. The dishes arrived in succession, so we always had a couple of dishes to enjoy on our small table while the finished ones were cleared away. I drank mango purée iced tea, and my friend had a Thai iced coffee. All in, the bill totalled $36.75, including tax. Outstanding food, service, value, and even ambiance because I found the restaurant’s tiny size charming. I’ll definitely go back.
We work at an advertising agency on mainland and go to this little gem that's tucked away off of mainland. We've been there for lunch for to go, to dine in and used them for catering before.
The value is very good for most items. Their stirfries are usually big enough that the girls in the group pack some home. The ribs are a smaller portion but getting ribs, sweet rice and edamamme beans for abit over 10 bucks is preferable for me than paying 18 bucks for a huge portion that i can't finish.
This place is solid and consistent and it's definitely a staple in our weekly rotation of lunch spots.
We can't wait til the revised menu starts to try more things
My friend and I went to Fuse Pan Asian Express for dinner during the Dine out Yaletown promotion. The restaurant is pretty quaint with a small seating area and bad lighting. I honestly wasn't too sure how the food was going to be given the interior decorating. As the title mentions, we were both pleasantly surprised with the food. The spring rolls with goat cheese were amazing as well as the ginger-infuzed rice and green beans. They also had appetizing take-away food in the fridge but I was too full from our 3-course meal to even think about anything else. If I was back in the area and needed a small snack or lunch meal, I would definitely come back.
We are new to Yaletown and find that most places tend to be pretentious. We were on the way to a movie and came across this small restaurant. The service was impeccable, of couse they are new and we were the only table there that night but they were friendly and very helpful. Based on their suggestions, we had fresh brewed ice teas - my wife had the mango puree and i had the black current, both were good. if you go, you should get their thai tofu bites - we're vegetarians, but it's available as chicken also. Speaking of which, they have a huge selection of vegetarian items and offer most of their items as a vegetarian option. All in all, it cost us less than $25 for drinks, appies and a main courses. we're definitely going back. Great food, good value with none of the pretension - the only thing missing was a wine list as they're not licensed. I suggest get your food here and then go drinking.
I do a lot of business lunches so thought I try Fuse in my neighborhood. The place is hard to find since it's tucked against the entrance of the building away from the street.
Decor is nice but cramped. One thing I don't like, especially for lunches, is a restaurant leaves a lingering smell on you and your clothes. I guess due to the cuisine (lots of fried garlic, onions and spices) my clothes smelled for the rest of the day.
Had the lunch box ($10) which consisted of a cup of jasmine rice, some spicy schezuan green beans, and a small 2x2 cube of wild salmon. Salmon was done perfectly medium rare and I made sure it was sashimi grade which it was, just wished it was a larger portion.
Ice tea ($3) was refreshing quite certain it wasn't brewed.
In all, an ok experience just not enough to have me wanting to go back given the options nearby.
Heard good things about the place went three times, three strikes you are out... This place acts like its upscale but they forget they are a diner. The fish was not cooked all the way the first time. Some older lady who must of been the manager comes around kissing ass every 2 minutes. HOW ANNOYING!!! I came here to eat not talk can't you see I am on the laptop! If I wanted someone to talk to I would call my girl or hear my wife go on and on and on.
Indonesian Fried Rice was quite oily, but tasty nonetheless.
The staff were very friendly, and actually made the effort to smile and talk with you, even though they're busy dealing with a lunch rush.
Although the atmosphere is lacking, they make up for it in everything else.
One complaint: this establishment is in the stone ages by only offering credit card transactions over $10. They should relocate to Richmond.
