Good Dim Sum

The food was clean, fresh, and really good. The service needs some work. Our waiter was obviously distracted by his other tables and kept looking around while we were placing our order. We found him to be rather abrupt and cold. He made himself rather scarce. Our dishes were brought out by various servers so we would ask for water or condiments and their response was to point a finger at our waiter. But all in all, the food was worth the grief from the servers.

I noticed several months ago that a new Korean restaurant had opened up in the Guildford area. So we finally made it out there over the weekend.

We were there for an early dinner, around 5:30. There were not busy with only 3 or 4 other tables being served. The Korean ladies were surprisingly friendly (I've had terrible experiences in the past at other Korean restaurants). We ordered the Smile Combo for 2-3 people. It came out fairly quickly and everything was brought out all at once on a serving cart. The combo consisted of beef, chicken, and pork bulgoki, tempura, two bowls of rice, Korean miso soup, and salad. As well we got the usual communal dishes of kimchi, sprouts, and other goodies. The bulgoki is cooked at the table on the hot plates like most korean restaurants. The waitress was very nice and placed the meat on the hot plate and was also taking care of cooking the meat. Now I tend to be overly cautious about how food is handled/cooked so when I noticed that (1) the she used the same tongs to place the raw meat on the hot plate and to turn the cooked meat over, and (2) she was using scissors at the dinner table to cut the raw chicken and beef into smaller strips. That didn't sit well with me so I told the waitress that I would tend to the meat. She reluctantly left. I wish they would just do that before they brought it out. Doesn't it make more sense to cut the meat before it's brought out? I don't like the possibility that something, be it the cutlery, plates, or food could get contaminated at the table.

Other than that, the food was pretty good. The service was good. My 9 year old particularly loves the calling bells at the table. He always wants to press the button for service!! But it is really a nice feature as when the restaurant service picked up after 6:00, we used the service button to get another round of drinks. No waiting. It's great.

I suspect that the food is much more traditional than some of the other Korean restaurants as I saw a steady stream of Korean patrons. I will have to try it for myself to be sure though.

I would recommend.

Not Worth the Drive

My son wanted to go out for Japanese food for his 9th birthday. After reading so many positive reviews, we thought we would give it a try.

It wasn't worth the drive from Delta.

The food was just ok. Nothing special. We had the AYCE. We had some of the Korean BBQ which was ok. We tried some teriyaki as well. My husband and I had a hard time swallowing what was brought out. We should have just stuck with the BBQ.

The service was blah and we had food come to our table that we didn't order and food that we ordered that we never received.

All in all, it wasn't worth the drive. We won't be returning anytime soon.

With the limited number of good Japanese restaurants in the area, my husband and I were happy to see a new one pop up. We made our first (and most definitely our last!) visit this weekend. The parking lot was jam packed and we ended up parking in a nearby plaza. Upon entering the restaurant, we noticed that there had been little, if any, changes made to the old Anducci's decor. Aside from plants draped strewn throughout the restaurant with pink ribbons and Korean writing, the place lacked that Japanese ambiance.

There were many girls standing around the front entrance. We were seated in a booth and given our menus. A waitress returned with some tea. We waited quite some time to place our order. The waitresses kept walking by but nobody bothered to take our order or even acknowledge that we were there even after making eye contact with us! They just kept seating more people. Finally, after about 20 minutes, I called one of the waitresses over. I told her we were ready to order. She took our order and left not bothering to even refill the tea. After about 10 or 15 minutes our gyoza came out. It was ok. Shortly after, half of my husband's dinner showed up (dynamite rolls). About 5 minutes later, the rest of his dinner came out. It was chicken sliced into strips served over cabbage, carrots, onions, with about a quarter cup of mixed rice moulded onto the corner of the plate. Oh let's not forget the cantaloupe on the other corner. We just looked at one another and cringed. My husband began eating his dinner while we sat and watched. My husband had completely finished his meal and we sat there still without our food. Annoyed, I was finally able to track down our waitress again who had disappeared for who knows how long. The couple across from us had also been waiting quite some time for her return and were now leaving.

The waitress comes over and says "Your food is coming" and leaves again. Not bothering to fill the tea...again. Finally the food arrives but separately. My son receives his meal first. Another 4 or 5 minutes pass before I receive mine. I was forced to ask another waitress for tea. The waitress never came back on her own during our visit. I was always forced to call her to our table. In the end, she would not even bring us the bill. Another girl brought that over. One of the worst dining experiences ever! We will never return to this restaurant. The service was horrendous and the food over priced.
