Mr. Sushi1250A Lynn Valley Road, North Vancouver
Great Rolls!
Submitted Wednesday, September 1, 2010 - 10:52pm [Dine in]

Decided to have sushi today to beat the traffic going home from North Van :)

Honestly, I didn't have high hopes at all for this little (clean) hole in the wall.
But was very pleasantly surprised nevertheless.

We ordered a "Daily Special Combo" for around $8 - 8 piece california roll, chicken teriyaki, 1 deep fried gyoza, and 2 piece each of yam and shrimp tempura served in your standard bento set with Miso Soup. + side order of Dynamite roll.

The sushi was decent sized (ie. edible in one bite and not monstrous lol) with fresh fillings, well as fresh as standard california roll fillings can be anyways lol and good rice (non-mushy/sticky). The teriyaki well done yet not over fried and yummy. And most importantly, the tempura actually came out crispy and hot! (not soggy..) Portions were not huge but just enough to be happily carbed out and content that we are getting quality.

Lots and lots of take out customers walking in during our meal so that must be a good sign.
Only complaint was no salad? with the combo, but no big deal for the quality and price.

Will have to come back and see if the fish part proves just as good!

Thai House Royale Restaurant4600 Kingsway, #115, Burnaby
More Chinese than Thai

My Vegetarian Green Curry consisted of broccoli, cauliflower, lots of celery, mushed up soft tofu, and one single piece of carrot swimming in sauce. Very green indeed! (no, for some reason there wasn't even any basil!)

Lol seriously unless you are absolutely stuck in Station Square starving for Thai do yourself a favor and walk across the street to Green Basil instead. I have wanted to try out the restaurant after passing by it all the time and seeing all their "Best of Burnaby Now" posters. Knowing that it would be somewhat a pricey place I figured to head over during lunch instead to test the waters par se before bringing any friends.

Bottomline think of a "westernized" Chinese restaurant serving only "mock-Thai-style" dishes in a clean but dated environment. Depending I guess on what time you go you may have a better server (I went between shifts and have two distinctly different services as they switched). Ok I guess, but absolutely not worth a repeat visit.

Oh, and have I mentioned that they have the worst Thai Iced Tea EVER..

(even the canned stuff from Chinatown groceries is better so save your money and have a Starbucks or something because this version is probably closer to orange coloured evaporated milk with ice than a real drink. Oh well, you've been warned!)
