Poor Italian Trattoria and Ristorante - Service 0/10, food ??

So I read reviews about this place on opentable and it seemed to be alright, made a reservation and went to the restaurant on time(615). Arrived and the restaurant wasn't full, maybe 60% capacity. Hostess greets us, who I thought was a customer because she was in street clothes and seemed like she was going outside for a smoke. We were sat down immediately. Then came the worse part, within the next 10 minutes, not a single waitress or waiter or anyone came to the table for water or any service, at the 13 minute mark I said fuck it and we walked. I gave a chance for every single staff to walk by at least once but none of them acknowledged us. Mind you I'm not a picky person nor have I ever done this.

Went to BT Cafe for dinner instead. 9/10
Service was great as usual. Girl got black pepper lamb and rice, it was cooked a little less than she wanted, but it was flavorful and tender. I got baked seafood with coconut on rice, came with plenty of squid, shrimp(big ones not small) and fish. Come home completely satisfied

I tried BT cafe last weekend. IMO, it's not that great but the portions are huge for $7. I had seafood curry which came with a creamy soup.

Maybe I should have order something else, my experience is 6/10. Plenty of better cafe places in Richmond.

The service was quick and attentive and there was one very cute waitress. I will definitely return to try out their Linguine fettuccine. I don't know what's wrong with other people when they came here, they all came out disappointed but I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. I guess some of you have got to get your taste buds checked out.

Happy Sushi for AYCE lunch
Haven't done AYCE in a long time but everybody else wanted to go. They were able to accomodate 14 of us so thats a plus. Food was okay by all accounts and everybody left happy (no pun intended)

I ate at this Chinese Buffet 9/10 ( forgot name) where Richmond Hon's used to be. I went in for the breakfast buffet $4ish. There was was a decent selection, and for the price I could not complain about the quality.

It was called King's buffet right? And $4 for a breakfast buffet? That's ridiculous!

With a name like that, I see why you'd rate it 9/10

Yup. I think it is called that. Breakfast Buffet is from 7:30-10:30am ( they begin to replace the food at 11 (for the lunch buffet)

when i heard its $4, my face was just like the avatar "$4 breakfast??"
It is $4 something +tax..so $5 There was the usual Chinese fried rice, Chow Mein, sausages, egg(boiled), omelets, tater tots, spring rolls, soup(Chinese), steamed buns(the kind with meat in it), salad/fruit bar, etc. There was also desert, which included ice cream, cake, cookies, jello, etc. There is tea, coffee, and hot soy milk. I would choose this over Bons for a cheap meal lol.

Neptune Seafood Restaurant for Dim Sum. 7.5/10. Went in the afternoon time, couldn't take advantage of their morning discount. Still decent, that I enjoy going.

89 Inn Restaurant, Fraser St.

Overall, it scores a 7/10 because almost everything was nothing special. The place was nice and clean though (except for the water they served. Looked a tiny bit musty. Haha), with lots of choices on the menu. Plus all the items were generally priced surprisingly low.


Individually, I would give their Katsu-Don a 10/10 though. It was the best I've had in a long long time.
