It's okay
Submitted Thursday, June 13, 2013 - 9:35am [Dine in]

Went here with my boyfriend a few days ago, they were pretty busy inside and didn't offer us to sit outside and it was sunny (maybe because they think people prefer the inside?). Our hostess tried to squeeze us inside which would've been horrible, but we asked to sit outside and it was so much nicer and quiet. The inside looked very cramped too, if you're planning on visiting, I would make reservations.

On to the food.. I don't think the spot prawns were fresh (as in they were previously frozen), so for $3 each that was kind of a disappointment, the tuna-avacado was okay, nothing special, the grilled duck was very very chewy so I wouldn't recommend that, the kakuni bibimbap (pork jowl) was very tender but kind of bland, it's still neat to try, the oxtail ramen (my boyfriend loves ramen and says this one place on Robson and Denmark is even better than some places in Japan) enjoyed it. He said it was good, which is impossible to hear from him. And the AAA beef fillet steak was good, interesting for those who never experienced this at a restaurant. The deluxe Suika box which was recommended from the server as "sooo good the best," was not very good. It was just a bit of all the appetizers they had, which none of us liked. But the service was good. It's definitely a place to try, but I think most people would prefer Guu. I would always recommend at least trying this place.

This is my 2nd review on urban spoon, if you saw what I wrote about Sandbar... well, Sandbar is actually on top of their game compared to this place.

I've been wanting to come here for a few months now. I am fortunate to dine out everyday, and enjoy trying to new places. But this place is not that great. With the pork jowl and pork belly being sold out, there menu is kind of limited. We had the eggplant, wontons (soup tastes like water, wontons are so bland, its better going to even Hon's for it), beef tartare, flatbread and taiwanese sausages. There's nothing "memorable" about the food here. The only good thing I would say is the taiwanese sausages aren't greasy or oily. The service here is horrible. We were seated and ordered, after that, no one said one word to us. We were given our dishes, not one word to us, (Here are your eggplants... here are your sausages... what is with just giving us food?). At the end, we asked the for bill and this guy seemed so annoyed like we owed him something? This was on a Wednesday night around 10pm and they were very slow! I can always accept this behaviour if it's busy and employees are annoyed or literally busy, but on a slow and dead night, it's always unacceptable. So after getting the bill, again, not one word to us. The only things we heard that evening was "do you want anything to drink?" and "do you need change?" My boyfriend and I decided to give a 20% tip, just to see if maybe employees would be nicer. So we asked for 1$ back, he confirmed we wanted 1$ back in a really rude way, when he gave us 1$ back, he threw it on the table and not one word. No goodnight, no bye, are you serious? What does this place teach me? Next time I'll say, "Sorry, yes, I decided I do want my change back." Even with a 20% tip you cannot get service from anyone here.

I'm not here to complain about the food, I won't even bother. But there is something clearly wrong with their service. I guess it's a place to drink, but not eat or get service.
