Toyama757 Seymour Street, Vancouver
What the H3ll has happened?
Submitted Friday, July 13, 2012 - 5:29pm [Dine in]

Went there with two friends on Tuesday.
The place was half empty. We went for the AYCE,and seeing as my friend wanted wild salmon sashimi,we had to opt for the A B C menu for 34 dollars.

What a joke. Lets face it,all all you can eat sushi places deliver you half of what you ordered. But this place is outrageous.
Nothing comes. as ordered. Sometimes,2 or 3 attempts must be made before you get what you want.

When we asked for more sashimi,the waiter replied "too busy now,must make a sheet."
Come on dude.. 3 servers for 22 people,and youre too busy?
And the C menu is a rip off. There is nothing worth getting excited over for 35 bucks.
Sayonara to you toyama!

Went in here for lunch. Had three different items. All were tasty and fresh. The spinach cheese dip was a big hit,and the chicken burger was tops. Wings were also a hit.
No wait to sit down,fast service,perfect for a fast in and out.
A decent place for a fast meal for lunch!

Cartems Donuterie534 West Pender, Vancouver
I dunno about amazing...
Submitted Monday, March 26, 2012 - 6:32pm [Take-out]

I just had the maple bacon donut,and all it tasted of was sweet lard. It left an "oily" aftertaste in my mouth. Dry,crumbly,and unimpressive.For the price,not worth it,in my opinion.I guess locally sourced ingredients means inferior product.
Its nice to have a shop close to home that isnt a chain,but come on....its only a donut,after all...

All you can eat? More like all they fell like you should have.
Submitted Wednesday, February 8, 2012 - 8:11pm [Dine in]

Saw this place when i googled late night sushi in Vancouver,saw a few good reviews,figured to give it a go.
Servers and manager look familiar,either from Toyama,or fish on rice leftovers. Had the late night menu,would have rather had the full dinner menu,but not available.
So,this is the worst part. Maximum THREE pieces of small sashimi per person. Three!!! what the hell??Thats unheard of! And of course,no mention of this on the menu anywhere.
First round of ordering resulted in half the requested items coming out.When I asked if there was anymore coming,waiter said,uhhh I will check, then took a personal phonecall. Guess he called the kitchen to check.
Nope,was his answer. So,ordered the beef and chicken teriyaki again.
Beef teriyaki tasted like a mix of ground beef and beef pieces,and not good. Chicken was typical thigh pieces.
Ton Katsu tiny.The motoyakis were all mayo,no seafood.
It was gross. You figure the new place in the area would step it up,seeing as tomokazu and BC sushi are right down the street.
I wish I did.
The servers were scarce,and of course,popping back to the table just in time for last call at the kitchen.
Never again will I return here.

Sushi Town5935 Hastings Street, Burnaby
A great place in burnaby!
Submitted Wednesday, December 14, 2011 - 1:33am [Dine in]

First time here,after driving by many times.
Yes,it is small,but thats not a big deal. The food is fast friendly and large portions.
Some original rolls on the menu,I tried the fillet o fish roll. Very nice!
All in all,a great deal,45 for two people who left full and satisfied.
And,as strange as this sounds,real live Japanese people making sushi!! We all know how hard that is to find in this town.

Whole Vegetarian Restaurant3068 Main Street, Vancouver
Non vegetarian guy wholly impressed!!!
Submitted Tuesday, November 29, 2011 - 1:46am [Dine in]

I have been here twicw now,and this place keeps getting better.
My standard favorites are the house special chow mein, the salt and pepper konjak and the Pineapple delight. All solid choices for sure.
Today,we tried the bean curd skin in black bean sauce, the spicy green beans,as well as the regulars.
This is not your typical snotty hippie vegitarian restaurant. It is a great place for you to test the waters of vegetarianism.
I did,and i am glad i did!!

Big Daddy's Pizza1975 Powell Street, Vancouver
First time here,probably last.
Submitted Saturday, November 5, 2011 - 6:49pm [Take-out]

I came in,not expecting too much in the first place.
So here it is,an honest review.
Located in the old Pepper roast location,beside the Mohawk gas station.
First off, not too impressed by the pizza chef not wearing disposable gloves when making pizzas. And wiping his hands on his apron when there were no paper towels in the dispenser was another negative.
Maybe I should have walked right there,but I stuck it out.
Pizzas that were sitting in the display case looked old and dry. Also,selection was pretty limited.
I bought 2 slices,the Carnivore and the Greek, for 6.70.
Heres the problem.
They both tasted EXACTLY THE SAME!
Extremely saucy.Thick,goopy saucy.
Usually,a greek would have feta cheese.If it was there,I didnt notice any.

Crust was very doughy.Usually I like the thick crust,but this was a bit much.
I Always like to give the little guys a fair shake,but after reading their delicious description on their wall,I feel a bit duped.
With Dominos right around the corner...I would think that maybe they would step up the game a bit.
Dont think i will return anytime soon.
Im going to enjoy my bigmac I bought as a backup.

BC Sushi2126 W Broadway, Vancouver
Tasty for the most part.
Submitted Wednesday, August 3, 2011 - 3:01am [Dine in]

Went for the AYCE,and decided to go for the ABC menu,whch is the top priced choice. You can have A, A and B,or ABC,at 3 different prices.

Got seated right away,place was busy. Was nicely surprised by the selection on the menu. The Dragon roll alone was a nice change.
The roll selection alone is huge,and covers all kinds.
Over all,the food was good. However,the Ika Karrage came out tasting of burnt oil.,and the Kaki Pon had a strange aftertaste.
The solid hits for me were the deep fried spicy prawns,the dragon roll,and the Amaebi sashimi.
The only real complaint is the common one for Sushi joints. They never bring all that you order.it took a really long time to get all our items,and of course you have a time limit.granted,they were busy,but it would be nice to get everything you ordered within a reasonable amount of time. It took an hour to get our fried items.
Definitely a place i will return to.

Buffet at River Rock, The8811 River Rd., Richmond
Not Very Awesome,Uncle Willys has more Variety!!
Submitted Tuesday, July 12, 2011 - 11:39pm [Dine in]

Went here on a Tuesday night. There was no wait,so we got right in.
First off, I would have assumed there would have been a bigger chinese food section,being in Richmond and all.
IT was sad. Wonton,sesame balls,crappy veggie dish,beef and greens,unappetizing chicken potstickers. And an unfilled spagheitti with Bolognese sauce. Never tried it,because it never got refilled.
Basa fish in a cream sauce,Blah. Roas beef,hard to screw that up. Seafood penne,no seafood. Pesto pasta was average.
And,strangely enough,a "Mediterranean" section. Rice Pilaff meh. Falafel, hard and dry. greek salad was good.
The salad bar was full of different things,Like pea shoot sprouts for instance. Who the hell eats those?
The best part was the dessert section. A large selection of desserts,however,some of them looked like they were attacked by chainsaws. People digging into them like savages leaves the line in a very unappealing state.
The "bottled" water that is complimentary is merely tap water,which is ok I guess. Kind of a neat feature.
I was really expecting more seafood,or really,any kind of seafood for that matter. Some prawns, crablegs,anything.
All in all,It wasnt worth the price. Maybe they switch up the menu occasionally,and i picked a bad week.
Either way,this place is not on my return list.
Food court,although pricey,would be a better choice.

Marina Grill1653 Columbia St., North Vancouver
Great setting,food,not so much.
Submitted Monday, July 4, 2011 - 8:18pm [Dine in]

Went for lunch today. It's a bit tricky of a location to find,but once you are there,the view is awesome.
A nice patio overlooking the marina,and with no fishy ocean smell.
Now for the bad.
The food is just not up to par for this setting.
the large spinach salad was way too small for what you pay for,and was wilted.I had fish and chips,friend had the Yacht club sandwich. The weird part is,they both come with fries and coleslaw. But,she got a small bowl size,and i got basically what was a capful. I dont understand why you would get different sized sides,but whatever.
The sandwich was ok,but the fish and chips were average.It tasted like hotdogs.You get a tiny side of ketchup and a small amount of (bottled) tartar sauce.
I would think they would try a little harder with a nice view and setting like this..but i guess not.
And for the amount of servers on hand,service was lack lustre.

Taiko on Denman689 Denman Street, Vancouver
Well worth the trip.
Submitted Wednesday, February 23, 2011 - 12:15am [Dine in]

We were looking for a downtown sushi lunch spot,and decided on Taiko. Its at the foot of denmanmin a corner building across from the large bike rental place.
Walking upstairs, you are greeted by a baby grand piano.Why? Not too sure.
The service was a bit sporatic,but once you get the food,it was worth it.
The price on the lunch was very well worth it.13.95 cannot be beat. Everything was fresh,well presented,and delicious.The only thing is,they suffer from the same thing that plagues most AYCE sushi places,and that is order 10 pieces,get 5.But,that aside,if you dont mind ordering a few extra times, then it all works out. In the summertime,the patio will be awesome.

Top Gun Hot Pot4500 Kingsway, #2228, Burnaby
First time hot potter.
Submitted Friday, February 11, 2011 - 12:08am [Dine in]

stopped in on a tuesday. First impression.big and clean. Now,I am not an asian expert,not am I a gourmet,a chef,or a foodie,like half of the arrogant pricks on here.
I am a white guy that likes to eat.
Food was fresh and fast ,and a large selection. Won tons were a prepackaged type. As a white guy,there were odd coices on the menu,like ox omnasium,for instance. But,the vegetables are fresh,the meat looked great,and soup base was tasty.
Staff seemed alright to me,and I am usually the first to complain about ethnic places.
Price was right,service was too. Only complaint would be they should have bottomless pop.
Would go back again.

Fish on Rice1414 W. Broadway, Vancouver
So dissapointed,making this the last time to fish on rice.
Submitted Thursday, November 25, 2010 - 10:56pm [Dine in]

I used to be such a proponent of the Fish on Rice in Burnaby. I went with a friend to this location,and have now been turned off.
We were the only table in the place.Literally.
Submitted our first order sheet,half of which was never broght to the table. Now,this seems to be a common practice with AYCE places,but its getting a bit rediculous.
We were the only 2 people in the room!!
Whats the point of having order sheets,when you have to ask the waitress for everything anyways??
The Tuna tataki and spicy tuna sashimi was quite good,but everything else was kind of so-so.
Anything deep fried smelled of old oil,and the rolls were bland.Getting the boot at 9pm was kind of lame too.
looks like its a longer drive to Toyama from now on.

A new addition to the area.
Submitted Sunday, October 24, 2010 - 3:21am [Dine in]

Went to Joey's for lunch. First thing I noticed,was the music was a bit loud.
Hostesses and servers were friendly,but not in an overly fake way.
My friend was drinking the Gringo beer special,which she raved about.
They layout is similar to how it was as Sharks club,but with a few changes.
The view of the restaurant is outstanding.The place itself is very clean,and very easy to look at.
Loads of HDTV's to watch the game.
Food was very good.
Also has a beer and wine store located downstairs.

Tokachi Japanese Restaurant10767 King George Highway, Surrey
it was okay.
Submitted Friday, October 8, 2010 - 1:02am [Dine in]

Not what I expected. It was a nice enough place in the worst part of Surrey,but thats not a problem.
The food was just...okay.
Sashimi portions were on the small side,and the spicy chicken karrage was a huge dissapointment.
Badly deep fried,and with a generic chili sauce.
The rest of the dishes were like I said...okay.
There was nothing we had that had any wow factor. In fact...this place is comparable to a few AYCE places as far as the taste and presentation of the food.
Not overly impressed,but it was clean,and it was open. Not alot of choices in the area,unless you like pizza or subs.

New India Buffet & Restaurant805 W Broadway, #105, Vancouver
Possibly the cleanest restaurant I have seen in a while.
Submitted Friday, October 8, 2010 - 12:55am [Dine in]

Located on the corner of Oak and Broadway,in the stripmall.
First off,did I say how clean it was?
Very clean. Nice to see.
And for 16 dollars for the dinner buffet, a hell of a deal.Over 40 dishes to try. I tried it all,and loved it.
came to 38 bucks for 2 people with a drink,so that seemed right to me.
I didnt find anythjing overly spicy,but lets keep in mind,it is an indian restaurant,and what do they use in indian food people? Thats right,SPICES.

On a whole,well worth it,and I would reccomend it highly.
PS Servers are very attentive,and quick.

Old Bavaria Haus, The233 6th St, New Westminster
A great dining experience.
Submitted Friday, August 20, 2010 - 1:55am [Dine in]

It looks as if you are walking into a true Geman/Austrian restaurant,and you do.
The decor is pleasantly kitchy,the servers are very attentive and good at what they do.
Coquette St. Jaques,and prawns provencal for appies,along with a ceasar salad. All 10's.
Chicken cordon bleu and schnitzel and bratwurst for mains. Again, a solid 10.
The schnitzel portion was a very healthy size,and meals come with seasonal veggies,roast potatoes,and red cabbage sides.
The desserts,chocolate mousse and seasonal fruit home made cheesecake,was a nice end to the dinner.
Judging by the amount of take away containers,the portions are more than adiquate for what you pay.
This is by far a shining jewel in New West's crown.

Kobe Japanese Steak House1042 Alberni Street, Vancouver
Bring a change of Clothes.Seriously
Submitted Wednesday, July 14, 2010 - 10:59pm [Dine in]

Heres the one thing that people seem to skip over about Kobe's.
After you eat there,you stink.
Seriously,funky, BO type stink. The problem is,because everyone in your party smells,you dont notice it until you go out to a club,and people say, "whats that smell?"
Its from all the oil in the air coming from the teppanaki grills.

The food is "meh", meaning not very good for what they charge.
Ya,its somewhat entertaining to watch the chefs in their rehearsed acts,but I think thats kind of over and done with.If i'm paying huge bucks for a meal,I dont care about how they cook it,just how good it is.

(PS- Febreeze doesnt cover it up either.)

I'm sorry that some of you expected the Four Seasons buffet for 10 dollars...
Submitted Monday, March 1, 2010 - 10:02pm [Dine in]

I see alot of people here expected the million dollar buffet in Vegas up here for the ten dollars you pay.Well,"foodies" or "gourmets",this is the wrong place for you.
I'll tell you who this place is good for.
Seniors on a fixed budget. Students,also on a fixed budget.The cheap people.And my catagory,those that like to eat.

Two kinds of soups,probably made from a leftover collection,but high end restaurants do it also.Its called food costs.Look it up,fancy pants.

A good selection of vegetables,both raw and cooked.A spicy pea dish,with indian flair.
Lasagna,and a spinch pasta. REAL mashed potatoes. Awesome.
2 fish dishes,not my favorite.
The chicken.Man,well worth it alone. Fried perfectly,or roasted on a spit roaster. Delicious.
Cheesecake,custards pudding and soft serve for dessert.

And bottomless pop.

Next time youre in the metrotown area.check it out.
For 10 bucks,I'm telling you its a steal of a deal.
