True Confections3701 W. Broadway, #6, Vancouver
Submitted Wednesday, August 13, 2008 - 10:34am [Dine in]

I thoroughly enjoy their devil food's cake but when I came to pick up a slice the other day, I was horrified that I was charged over $11.00 for a slice of cake. For one serving on a 'to-go' dessert they charge $11.00? Unbelievable.

If you want dessert with reasonable prices, True Confections is not the place to go unless you're willing to pay through the nose.

Tojo's Restaurant1133 W Broadway, Vancouver
Overrated and Over priced
Submitted Saturday, June 9, 2007 - 10:44pm [Dine in]

I have to agree with fella - I don't understand what the fuss is all about. Its good food and you can be assured the quality is tops but its a little over priced. Expect to pay $17.00 for a spicy tuna roll. And it isn't even spicy! I find the menu selection to be quite limited and its not soooo good that the premium you pay for the sushi is really worth it.
I'm a lot happier dining at Yoshi's and its far cheaper. Yoshi would be my pick for best Japanese restaurant in Vancouver, not Tojo's.

Five Sails Restaurant999 Canada Place, Suite 410, Vancouver
Newly Renovated, New Owners
Submitted Sunday, May 27, 2007 - 12:32am [Dine in]

My husband and I have come to this restaurant on many occasions and the service and the food had been good.
After our most recent visit, we will never go back. First, we tried to make reservations. The hostess said it was very very busy and we will have to take an 8:30 seating. Fine. Upon arrival, we noticed the restaurant was half full. The hostess continued to tell us the night was booked solid and incredibly busy so we would have to sit by the door. After being seated for 10 minutes, a women (whom I assume is the manager) told us that a table has opened by the window so we could move seats. Fine. We looked around to see if more patrons would come into the restaurant. The half full restaurant became more and more empty as the night wore on.

The kitchen could not have been slower. Our entrees arrived 1 hour and 45 minute after we sat down. We had waited for an hour between courses. At this point, we were ready to leave. Even our waiter was uncharacteristically icy. The food was okay but I think it is completely unacceptable for a restaurant that is not even 1/2 full to take that long to serve its customers. And to top it off, there was no apology or explanation. If this is what is to be expected with the new staff and management, I do not recommend going to this restaurant. You can get the same quality of food, or better at other establishments without having to wait almost 2 hours for your entree.
