Szechuan Restaurant (On Saba Rd., Richmond)

Food: 8.5/10
Most of the menu items are spicy. There weren't that many dishes to choose from. It could be because it's Mooncake Festival, I'm not sure about other days. Personally, I love spicy food so this place was great. The food was very delicious. In fact it's one of the better restaurants I have tasted in Richmond and Vancouver offering Szechuan cuisine. We couldn't order that many dishes since there was only two of us. If there was a group of 4-6 people then it would have been better since we could have tried more variety. If you're looking for some cheap eats then this isn't the place. The dishes were a tad on the pricey side. Not expensive just pricey, but the quality of the food can compensate for it.

Service: 7/10
The service was pretty decent although dishes came out sort of slow but that's fine since we weren't in a rush.

Ambiance: 9/10
The ambiance was great. Don't let the exterior fool you, the interior is filled with many traditional Chinese wares/furniture. Hand carved wooden tables and chairs along with many other traditional Chinese arts and crafts (Silk paintings, Painted lanterns/lights, Wooden washroom doors etc etc). It's a very nice touch. To add to that, the restaurant wasn't very big. It can probably house at most 10 tables, a combination of large(10/12 people), medium(4-6), small(2-4) and a private room. Some customers were very loud but that's common and plus its a Chinese restaurant.

Overall: 8/10
I would recommend this place to everyone, well not everyone since you have to be able to eat a moderate degree of spice. It's a nice place to take your family or a small group of friends for dinner. One thing I didn't like about the area was that it was hare to find parking unless you're willing to pay. They have free parking in the back but that only fit 5 cars(4 Non-handicap and 1 handicap spot). In the end a .

Westlake Vietnamese Restaurant

the website made this place look a whole lot better than it actually is

went for the after 9 happy hour and the guy gave us the regular menus when we sat down, i had to ask the waitress for the 'special' happy hour menu

the waitress wasn't very friendly, she was very abrupt, tossing the menus onto the table

food was only okay, i was hoping for better but it was cheap

i'll go back and try their lunch menu

6/10

I'm glad someone else out there agrees with me. I ranted about this place and nobody seemed to agree!

Cucumber cafe
6/10
place was dead quiet, sound system sounded like an ipod stereo system...

Service was very good and friendly, mind you the place had about 20 people and was about 10% full, but this was on a sunday night so...

Steak was bad, pasta was bland,
Bistro style food was good, paninis, soups, wraps were great.

Not a bad place to relax after going to the gym or something, it's comfortable enough and if you order something simple like a wrap you'll be happy, but that's not enough to make me go back for a dinner.

Maruchu Japanese Bbq

7/10

Food was expensive, bf left hungry
actual food was decent, what can you say, you make it yourself
beef was lacking a bit
pork was good, i liked the fact they had the pork belly come with lettuce so you could wrap it

Good experience, i've never been to a yakiniku place, and the lady who owns/works there was really nice and explained to us the menu items and how it works and stuff, she was really attentative, and she was actually japanese and her english is really good. so for service it was 10/10

I think its called NAAM or NAAN on West 4th. Its been there for a while and its pretty popular (it was packed even at 12am). I tried a Mexican beans dish and it was really tasty! and relatively healthy too (vegetarian). Prices are decent (about 10 dollars/person). My only beef is that the tables/seating are too small (even by West End standards). I am 5'7, 155 lbs and I've never felt so claustrophobic eating out lol.

9/10 for food/value

4/10 for atmosphere or lack-thereof.

Tomo Sushi - horrible food and they compensate for that by giving you financial advice which is also horrible.

real quiet place but food was delish...

interesting japanese fusion food, everything's made by the chef/owner. both the chef n server were japanese. definitey more pricey than your regular japanese joints though portions were enough for me and bf to walk away full.

9/10 strictly due to parking and the area it's in.

*edit: it's on alexandra road. i just personally do not enjoy driving there.
