The absolute worst food, ever!
Submitted Tuesday, September 1, 2009 - 11:42am [Dine in]

Went there last year, but only found out about this site now, and feel compelled to complain, even after a year.

I have heard very good reviews about this place so I felt I had to see for myself. Boy was I disappointed.

We had those dragon bowls and they were essentially boiled hunks of cauliflower, carrots and brocolli in a warm thousand island dressing. All that for ~12 bucks?? you gotta be kidding me. And to top it off, it was lined with some sort of alfalfa sprout things that tasted like dirt. The red beets were practically raw and also tasted like they didn't even bother to wash the thing. More dirt taste. I knew it was a vegetarian place to begin with, but I've had way, way better than this. This place is a joke.

I just can see why so many people rave about this place. If anyone ever mentions the Naam or a vegetarian place to me, I will definetly steer them well away from this place.

Went to the old Joey Tomatos when it was on Cambie and 14th when it was still there. It was a much different restaurant back then.

Now, it is a more hip, young, energetic type of restaurant, much like Milestones or Cactus Club type of restaurant.

Had the seared ahi tuna on tacos appy, then the 9 oz cap steak and my dinner companion had the spicy seafood linguini.

Overall, very good food, excellent tasting steak, and new tastes in the linguini.

We were in a large party of 15, so and the service was very good, considering it was one waiter for all of us and he got the food out to us on time and in an orderly fashion. None of us were really paying attention to him when he asked us for our choices, and he was very patient.

Bill came out to $71, including two drinks. Tipping was a mandatory 18% which i thought was kinda high, but considering we were a party of 15, it might not be that unusual, but 15% would seem more the norm, I think.

Someone else's order came to our table - twice!

I have never felt compelled to write a restaurant review till now.

This restaurant is relatively new, having either been remodelled from an existing restaurant with another name or taken over a tenant space from someone else. Anyways, the decor is actually quite nice and bigger inside than it really looks from the outside.

It is actually a Taiwanese restaurant as my dinner companion pointed out. The restaurant name is quite, well, silly, but I think the Chinese restaurant name says something totally different, as with most Chinese restaurants.

Anyways, onto the choices. We had the deep fried tofu appetizer and I had the beef tendon in tomato soup noodle, and my companion had some other basic noodle in soup with the spicy deep fried chicken pieces on the side.

From what I have been told the spicy deep fried chicken pieces is a Taiwanese specialty. The deep fried tofu is supposed to be one too, but many other cuisines offer this too.

The chicken itself was pretty good, and up to standards, for Taiwanese spicy fried chicken. The deep fried tofu, well, was a disaster. It was not cripsy hot and cruchy on the outside with a hot steamy soft tofu on the inside, as it is supposed to be. There was no coating on the tofu itself and the pieces were way too big. They were not even piping hot, as they should be. The sauce was just too raw garlicy, but my companion told me that it can actually be served that way traditionally. The raw garlic in the sweet soy sauce mixture was just too overpowering. I think I burped up raw garlic taste later that evening. yech.

Onto the beef tendon slices. Way too thick and too much hard chewy fat/carilage, much like a jellied beef log that was cut too thick. Again, my companion, an expert in Taiwanese food, agreed that the slices were too thick and too chewy.

Oh, and before we got our dishes, the gave us someone elses order, twice. Once is an honest mistake, but twice???? Come on.

All told, an appetizer and two soup noodle dishes, with taxes, came in under $20, so good value for the meal, but the meal itself was something else left to be desired.

They have numerous choices on the menu, so it "might" warrant another visit, but definetly not those choices anymore.
