Thai Kitchen8180 No. 2 Rd, #160, Richmond
Not authentic and not good
Submitted Saturday, February 6, 2010 - 2:53am [Dine in]

Ordered pad thai, curry and Thai fried rice. Everything was terrible. The curry was decent at best.

That being said, their lunch specials were very very cheap. So if you want cheap food and thai food then this may interest you.

But if you want good authentic thai food then this is not where you want to go.

ABC Country Restaurant3580 No. 3 Road, Richmond
Average food, average prices, average place
Submitted Saturday, February 6, 2010 - 2:39am [Dine in]

Been to this place a few times. Nothing here really stands out except for the nachatos. That's pretty good but not sure if its worth the price.

The pasta is not very good, I would not recommend it. The noodles are way too overcooked.

Recommendation: Other than the nachatos, nothing really stands out. This is a very western/traditional restaurant. Worth a try if you haven't been.

Seto Japanese Restaurant8460 Alexandra Road, #155, Richmond
Not the cheapest but worth a try
Submitted Wednesday, February 3, 2010 - 6:51am [Dine in]

This place is definitely not the cheapest place but the food is quite good.

They have a variety of fresh seafood and various Japanese dishes.

Sushi is priced higher than your average "all you can eat" because they are authentic Japanese.

The miso ramen is a must try here.

Recommendation: Try it and you'll find it better than your typical "all you can eat"

Bodhi Choi Heung Vegetarian Restaurant3932 Fraser Street, Vancouver
Not the best location or service, but the food is spectacular!

If you think Bo Kong is the place for vegetarian Cantonese Cuisine then you have to try this place.

It may be small and old looking and the service may not be 5 star but the food sure is.

This place has English menus for those who can't read Chinese.

The food is amazing. I had four dishes with family and all were so good. They came very quick and the quality was excellent.
You can do combos if you are with others and you can select from a list of dishes.

I haven't tried them all but the ones I ordered were very good. There is a dish with deep fried bean curd, spinach and enoki mushrooms. That dish is a must try.

I would never go back to Bo Kong once I've been here.

Recommendation: Go try it and you'll enjoy it. Compare it with Bo Kong and you'll taste the difference of what real Cantonese food should be.

Tri-ty Cafe8100 Ackroyd Rd, #130, Richmond
Started off so well but what happened?
Submitted Sunday, January 31, 2010 - 12:27am [Dine in]

When this place first opened it was an instant success but now is a different story.

The food started out with good quality and low prices. But in about late 2008 or early 2009, they increased their prices significantly. Compared with other equivalent Taiwanese bubble tea places they are priced much higher for food.

Drinks are priced the same as others.

I went there recently to see how things were going but the food quality was actually worse than before which was odd because of the price increase (about $10 for each dish).

This place seems quieter than when it first started, not sure if it will last much longer.

Recommendation: There are way too many alternatives that are cheaper and better. I would not go here.

Bo Kong Vegetarian Restaurant8100 Ackroyd Road, #80, Richmond
This place has really fallen during the years
Submitted Sunday, January 31, 2010 - 12:17am [Dine in]

First of all, I have been to this place since its opening and I am more than qualified to voice my opinion.

The quality of the food has most evidently deteriorated throughout the years as they have changed chefs many times to cut costs.

If you guys have tasted the food 5-10 years ago, you would not give the same reviews today.

The dim sum is really one of the most noticeable disappointments. The ingredients are not as fresh and falls apart easily.

The service throughout the years has also worsened. Whether you are at the Richmond location or Vancouver location, both service and food is just as bad.

It's very sad to see this place turn out like this but perhaps the rent of such large spaces have finally caught up to them and they have no choice but the cut cost. But no matter what, Restaurants should never cut cost in quality.

Recommendation: Don't go to Bo Kong. Try this vegetarian restaurant in Vancouver on Fraser St. You'll see what good Cantonese vegetarian food should be.

Well Tea4811 Hazelbridge Way, Unit 170, Richmond
One of the best taiwanese snack places without having to go to Taiwan
Submitted Sunday, January 31, 2010 - 12:09am [Dine in]

Compared with Taiwan prices it's very overpriced but that being said, it's a fair representation of what Taiwanese food is.

For Canada standards, it's fairly priced.

The food is very good and the service is good too. Nice design inside.

Not everything is completely authentic but close enough.

Recommendation: Try it and you might just like it.
