Kenzo Japanese Noodle House6907 Kingsway, Burnaby

We found the dishes to be a bit more stingy that we were used to having - #1 on the menu having only 2.5 slices of pork. Another dish a miso vegetable dish, used cheap cabbage + sprouts + green onions + baby bok choy + wood ear mushroom.. very, very salty also. Good prices - $6.95 to $8.95. Didn't try any appetizers or Korean foods on the menu.
Service was friendly and quick. Much better than the average tea house-style restaurant.
The furniture is quite neat as the tabletops are made out of single pieces of old-growth wood. This improves the "wood" nature feel.
Overall, a great place for college kids to hang out.

The menu has two main choices: 1) roti wrap, $11.95 or "double" for $14.95. Alternatively, you can get an entree plate with your choice of two entrees and some side dishes such as a bean soup and a salad, and a chai tea.

If two people share a entree plate ($17) they don't mention the free refills that are mentioned in other reviews here. $17.00 with tax is $17.85 - if you give $20, the tip is therefore 13%. The restaurant could be considered romantic due to the darkness, except that you sit looking directly at another table. The live music is nice. You face other tables directly and sit at a coffee table. They provide two 100 mL sauces - a tamarind sauce (very tasty) and a chili sauce (heinz chili sauce, like ketchup?)

The mango squash and eggplant are delicious. The food was generally a bit too salty, but the portion is so small that this is a good thing. The spicing of the food is really fantastic. Everything is very tasty - very strong flavours.

Service is rated Poor because I wasn't told about the free refill of the plate - but they were quite friendly and helpful and would overwise get a rating of Solid. The overall rating is only Decent because of the poor value for money, darkness, and strange furniture.

This is more of an Indian restaurant than an Afghan restaurant.

It's a club
Submitted Friday, November 17, 2006 - 8:54pm [Dine in]

This restaurant is like a beach-house. There is a central age-restricted bar area, and screened-in patios on the outside. The patios are a bit cold and subject to lots of mosquitos, depending on the season. The bar is like any other bar I've seen in Richmond - very noisy with loud music - but this one is a bit more upbeat and energetic. Both times I was there, the bar patrons and staff were egging on drunk women to dance or do silly things for prizes. The food is decent pub-fare; a bit expensive. Too noisy for me.

Peeling paint on dishes
Submitted Saturday, March 11, 2006 - 2:27am [Dine in]

Night of March 10, 11:20 PM - 1 AM: Twice I have gone to this restaurant and found peeling paint on my red cup of miso soup. Twice I have demonstrated to the waiter by peeling off the paint with my fingernails. I drank the soup before I realized it. Service is very very slow compared to Richmond Sushi. You can expect to wait 15-20 minutes for your order to be filled. The reason is that this restaurant uses the "receipt printer" system where the chef fills orders one at a time. One order oyster motoyaki? One order placed in the oven at a time. Richmond Sushi on the other hand makes 40 to 80 oyster motoyaki at a time. So, it's very inefficient. You must hand-write your order on an order sheet. There is almost no interaction between the staff and the customers for all-you-can-eat. The staff do not ask you if everything is OK nor do they show any care when dropping off or picking up.
The menu does not describe what any item is or how many you get. Let me tell you: a house roll is crab+salmon sashimi+avocado. An order of chicken wings is 3 wings.
The avocado roll and a vegetable roll are good (always smell vegetable rolls before you eat them to make sure the radish hasn't gone bad.)
One meat kebab had marinated much too long and was bad. Beef teriyaki was very thin and good quality. Deep-fried tempura was tiny.
