Interesting/Fun Restaurants

What are some fun/interesting restaurants in Vancouver?. Places where there is either a really fun ambiance, the service is just quirky, and that sort of thing.

A couple I can think of:

Stonegrill: Cook your own meal on a hot slab of rock
Elbow Room Cafe: Get insulted by the waiters while you eat there.

What else?

Avoid Stonegrill like the plague. That place is AWFUL. I'm surprised it has not gone out of business yet.

Wow, the Stone Grill in Hong Kong is excellent, I'm surprised the one in Vancouver sucks so bad.

Gotta agree, Stonegrill is terrible. Samba's isn't bad, live latin music. Do the dancers perform every night?

^omg, the eatery is probably the worst when it comes to food--it's like fake japanese food. the restaurant itself is super cool though.

You have to go and getyour own water. the owner calls all the girls sisters (he's gay). if you dont' finish you meal, you have to pay / donate money to the fund to support hungry kids.

atmosphere is ok. The food are over priced cause they call something "captain crunch". just a diff spin on jap food.

Sanafir, book a table on eh 2nd floor, you get to reserve a king size bed and you and 8 of yoru friends can order a 35 dollar per person platter and you'll get 7-8 dishes of tapas served to you on the bed.

whinos, if you're pimp, u get to eat behind their hidden bookcase room.

Samab: for those who doesnt' know it's all you can eat, people come out with a sword + meat and they keep on serving you until u're full.

The one at harbour centre is amazing, the lunch special is such a great deal too...

I wonder do they still have those lunch deals.

ok if your looking for a fun dinner check out the giggle dam in Poco. It's basicly a play that involves the audience and it's so much fun.

Not a Vancouver spot but here in Montreal there is a restaurant called Au Noir where it's pitch black inside (literally can't see anything) and you are served by blind people. It's a really different experience and something everyone has to try sometime. Don't know if anything like that exists in Vancouver though.
