girlfriend and I just randomly tried it when we were passing by looking for food to eat.
Great food, decent atmosphere. Do check out their recommended items, they don't disappoint!

I just wish they didn't have those stupid lightweight stools lol, that's going way overboard with the whole Japanese ramen/udon-house experience.

Section 3
I don't usually go drinking in Yaletown (or in public at all, for that matter...I'd much rather do it in the comfort of my own home), but the atmosphere was okay. The booth smelled kind of funky and there were a couple of guys getting kinda rowdy that the bar owners did nothing about.

Overall maybe 7/10.

Kwong Chow Congee & Noodle House on Main street.

7/10.

Had beef brisket on rice noodle (hoh fun). For $6.95, comes with soup or a drink. Don't remember what the soup it was, but it was a typical Chinese soup.

Portion was big, food was decent, typical HK style "cha chan tang".

Toyama AYCE Sushi at Robson and Seymour 1/10

Went there for lunch with GF. The sushi was total garbage, heap of rice on everything. The rice was cold. The rice on the rolls fell off soon after the waitress put the plate down. GF said the rice must have been stored for a couple of days. It was horrific. They also decided to give us double amount of our order for no reason and initially refuse to take the extra off.

The fish was disgusting as well. The spicy sauce that goes with the salmon taste like the cheep chili shits you buy from TNT. The oyster motoyaki is so small it's pathetic.

The skewered were quite delicious and the tea was nice so that's 1 star for them.

Avoid at all cost!

Brados on Commercial

Had the Italian poutine. Tomato sauce was on the watery side and made my fries soggy. Good amount of cheese curds.
Would go back and try another style of poutine.

6.5/10

They ran out of large Asahi's and only had small beers. Posh just aint the same anymore =(

3/10
I went around the same week as you, was excited as usual. However, serviced sucked this time, and the menu seemed to be cut in half, and there were no sauces.

Won't be going back

The Rockford on Broadway and Burrard. I've never had to say so many bad things about a restaurant before. -6/10

Stay away from this restaurant. The Broadway location was visited 3 times for me to come to a verdict that this place is downright fucking garbage. This is supposed to be an Asian fusion, so I guess ok, I'll try it out and see how well/bad they can get Asian food to taste.

First time I had their Lemon Chicken Bowl. This tasted horrible the sauce was overly bitter and there was too much of it and drowned the rice. What the fuck? It's like drinking sauce. I thought lemon chicken was supposed to have a crispy outside and a sweet lemon glaze; not soggy outside and over-cooked, stringy chicken on the inside. I guess the bitterness of what I think could be the lemon zest is supposed to be the "fusion". Garbage for 14-15 dollars.

The second time I went I had their Chicken Teri-Bowl. Again, there was a sea of "teriyaki" sauce. I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a fucking soup with rice in it or an actual rice dish. The sauce was immensly salty. The vegetables were tossed in as an afterthought. The bean sprouts in the bowl were not cook at all and the green and red peppers were overdone and soggy. Let me say that eating undercooked beansprouts with a fork isn't easy. Why the fuck is this the way it is? Why are some veggies soggy and some that aren't cooked? Aren't these veggies supposed to be cooked together? Did they fucking forget to throw the beansprouts in and decidedly throw it in afterwards? What the fuck???

The third time I went, I thought, maybe I shouldn't try the Asian food at a Western-based restaurant. Fine, so I didn't. I went for the very common grilled chicken fettuccini. Seems basic enough, Earls has their own version, Milestones has it, should be pretty easy to make, like every other fucking chain mid-class restauarant. So It comes to my table and the first thing I notice is the parmasean cheese in 3 inch round flakes. What's wrong with this you ask? Well, my pasta now has clumps of cheese in it rather than having it evenly dispersed. Ok, fine, I'll accept that I have to do some serious mixing to ensure the cheese is better distributed. Not easy to handle chese when it's fucking melting into a clump and trying to spread it. It's like fighting against time when the fucking cheese is melting and frantically trying to split the large flake without it sticking to your fucking fork and inevitably giving up and just saying "fuck it".

So I dig into the first piece of chicken and it had a very stringy, overcooked texture I remembered from my first visit. Not only that, the chicken was charred and tasted bitter. It was awful. Not only that the chicken wasn't even sliced all the way through, looked like a fucking chicken accordian. Other restaurants got it right by slicing the chicken so each piece is it's own individual piece so why the fuck can't this place get it the fuck right? Honestly the place wasn't that busy and I can't imagine how shit will turn out if it was busy.

Fine, the chicken didn't taste great so I went into the actual pasta. The level of care that went into the pasta is similar to me buying fucking Oliveri's alfredo sauce and throwing in pasta and throwing it in the microwave. I'm serious here, it was a plain alfredo cream sauce that tasted like it came from the supermarket. It tasted no different than the last time my lazy-ass felt like having alfredo and getting it prepared from a pack. For a 15.95 dish this is utterly unacceptable.

Every main dish on the menu that had some sort of meat in it averaged 14-18 dollars. This place need to bite the dust. I tried to like this place, I really did and gave it 3 different chances. I miss Moxie's that this garbage dump replaced. This place was closed for what I thought was 6 months to be renovated from the old Moxie's. It looks like there was absolutely no change except for the table tops that have a branded R on it and taking away the coat hangers at the end of each booth.

I fucking hate this place. I'm just spreading the word here so no one has to go to this fuckary of a fuck.

So they didn't grill the chicken then slice it? hahaha

Your rating is decieving given the review.

Sounds like it's only worth a 2/10 if it had decent service and atmosphere.

I know one of the waitresses there. Sounds about right and from what I hear they are really hurting for business.

How is -6/10 deceiving? Can you math?

I disagree. The wings at Angkor doesn't have the same crunch or flavour as Penh.

Its not bad though, but nothing close imo.

Claypot Hotpot on Alexandra Rd. in Richmond

eh, i don't know if it'd be fair to give this place a rating. I thought the food was fucking

bitter, everything. The damn beef strips, beef balls, pork intestine, and the shrimp.. and i

don't know what else i tried but it consisted of fish, beef, and pork.. i think i ended up

eating more the leafy salad than food, first and last time going there
