The people in front of us paid and then the lady didn't give them back change. Girl demanded for it back and snapped "because we waited so long." haha no tip!

Pho Sen in Coq.

Got a large #30 with rare beef, brisket and tripe. The large is the biggest I have ever seen!
Service was 7/10
Food was 8/10
Place was modern and clean.
Will return.

Daimasu 大增 (Burnaby) by crystal mall
food portion is small and NOT FRESH.
we ordered fresh oyster, california roll and beef short ribs. the oyster looks like its been frozen for a month then defrosted in cold water. and it taste very fishy (not fresh)
waitress also give me empty bottle of tabasco

beef short rib portion is small and small size california roll
overall the food quality is not as good as an average japanese restaurant

WILL NEVER GO BACK AGAIN

3/10 is food quality
3/10 is service quality

Raggazzi Pizza

10/10

Grilled chicken caesar salad was mind blowing!
every bite was just so good the romain lettuce was fresh and crispy!
crutons where still warm.
The way the serve you there is like the way it would if you part of there family

I also recomend there coffee very unique in smell and flavour

Manzo on Capstan Way.

7/10

Food was okay....service was terrible even with 4 servers...was fairly quiet night too.

Probably wont go back to that one...the setting isnt as authentic as the smaller original Manzo.

My dad prefers their pho over almost any place I've taken him to. Guess old habits stick.

Was never really a fan of Lim Kee. I did eat their $2 fried rice back in highschool lol.

Their pho doesn't look/taste right imo anyways. Looks like diluted beef broth from a can.

After reading the Hoi An thread a bunch, it left me a craving for pho. Hit up Pho Vinh in Surrey today for lunch and had their large #1. Still as good as the last time I had it, good balance of noodles, meat, and broth strength.

10/10
