Asa Sushi2178 West 41 Avenue, Vancouver
Good food, poor service
Submitted Monday, July 30, 2007 - 1:44pm [Dine in]

Asa sushi of Kerrisdale has been my favorite sushi place since 2 years ago when I moved into the neighbourhood. After moving else where about a year ago, I've been back several times for those specialty rolls that I love. It is a somewhat small restaurant with an authentic Japanese style (even the waitresses are Japanese, which is not the case in a lot of sushi places in Vancouver). While I'm impressed with the taste of their food, I'm really unimpressed with their service time after time. The most recent visit was for dinner at 6pm on a Sunday. The place with packed with people, the phone was ringing off the hook with take out orders. There were two waitresses working 12 tables, even though it was busy, I still couldn't understand why I needed to ask 3 times for a cup of tea. The sushi took about 45 minutes to come. I had a feeling that they did not put in-store customers orders a priority, instead they made their sushi on a first come, first serve basis, often with large phone-in orders. I suspect the shop owner has a different restaurant running philiosophy from mine. You'd always want to keep your in-store customers happy first, before you attend to the take-out orders. Perhaps the least they could do was to hire another waitress to keep the very minimum of serving tea to their customers.

Feenie's2563 W Broadway, Vancouver
Fame vs. food
Submitted Saturday, October 7, 2006 - 1:46pm [Dine in]

I went to Feenie's with my friends as a group of 4. I had called ahead to make a reservation but did not get the time we wanted. We went to the restaurant to "line up" for their patio spots, and waited for about 30 minutes. While we were waiting, the hostess turned down quite a few people since the wait was going to be over an hour for them. The seats in the restaurant are quite limited in number.

The server brought us some bread which was small in portion. We were quite hungry at that point so we weren't too pleased about that. Restaurants with similar price range in Vancouver are often generous with their bread supply, I guess it's not the case with Feenie's. Two of us ordered the famous Feenie burger. The burger was good, but not I-definitely-have-to-come-back-for-this kind of good. Will I go back again? Probably. Was the food worth the price? Meh. I think it was mostly the ironchef's fame I was paying for.
