Solid choice

I love eating here. Moules frites is my favourite dish and I've never been disappointed with anything that I've ordered in the past. Yes, you can even get a decent steak for under $20.00 which is becoming quite rare in this city. Portion sizes are just right - even for a hungry lad like myself. This is one restaurant in Vancouver that offers great value and excellent food. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that likes honest French food.

Went there on a Saturday evening before a late show. Had to wait for half an hour for a table for two which was a bit much.

Finally got seated at a table in the lounge just by the staircase. I felt like I was sitting on the edge of a striptease stage as all the sixteen year olds trying desperately to look of age struggling in their high heels staggered there way upstairs to the bathroom. The floor was Vancouver's version of "silicon valley". There was monumental cleavage everywhere you turned. This is about the only appeal of the place if you like that sort of thing.

Aside from that, if you're a sports fan and let's face it - 99% of North American males wouldn't survive an evening without their giant tv screens. Canadian football was plastered all around the place in case you didn't have anything more interesting to look at.

If you are like my girlfriend and I just looking for a place to enjoy a couple of drinks and dinner before the show then I'd look elsewhere. The music was insanely loud and honestly I think they played the same song over and over again. The beat never changed and the sound system was tinny. Somebody correctly mentioned that this place was more like a nightclub than a restaurant. Vegas - this is no Vegas baby. At least Vegas has some variety - this place was full of barely legal girls and inebriated lotharios.

Our waitress was a perky little thing with a lovely dimpled smile. Service was definitely good once we sat down. My gf ordered a pad thai that arrived burnt! How they hell do you burn noodles? I ordered a thai green curry bowl that came overly salted and covered in cracked pepper. In short it was inedible. Apparently whoever prepared this dish doesn't understand that you can't mix the curry and rice beforehand otherwise the rice becomes soggy.

We each had a couple of cocktails and shared a dessert at the end. The bill came to a whopping $70.00! That was after one of the bowls was removed from the bill. Anyways, to cut a long story short... unless you're into oggling girls that have recently hit puberty and drinking way overpriced drinks don't bother with this chain. Generic was right!

I have been here a handful of times but the last time was the final visit. I ordered a pork back soup as everyone else in there seemed to be enjoying it. I'm used to eating Korean food in the US and have yet to have anything in Vancouver that even comes close.

The small plates that come with the food including kimchi etc. were very disappointing. The kimchi was bland and chewy. The soup came and it was completely tasteless in spite of all the chlli powder that was everywhere.

I'm not even going to describe anything else. The bottom line is that I threw up a couple of hours later. And no, I hadn't been drinking that evening. I think there are some serious sanity issues in this restaurant. Eat there at your own peril!
