Is e-tea @ rupert and 22nd still there?

I believe they have the same owners?
Food there is passable, ditto with the drinks, rarely will you find that in a place that isn't packed full.

Never really liked E-Canteen anyways, so its no biggie.

I rather head to Alleluia or Kingspark if I'm in Rmd; but most of the time I rather just stay in Vancouver and go to Honolulu/Angel Cafe or BBT Cafe.

Its 1+1 Enjoy Cafe now. I know the owner. Food there is same as usual, typical cafe, but they did some renovations and new equipment as well.

Fuen yun is getting worse and worse for some reason. Last time I ate there the food was half cooked and real bad and same with my friend's plate of noodles.

i used to frequent e-canteen until i found out about alleluia.

tbh alleluia is going down in quality, maybe it's the exceptionally high volume taking a toll on the staff.


kings park has the best food of the 3, but their service is horrid, absolutely horrid, and I never complain about service.

Tried "Enjoy Cafe" few days after it opened. It was horrible.

Stay away from it.

- Pretty much same menu.
- Choices have been reduce.
- Prices have increase.
- Horrible service.
- 30 minutes after ordering, still no utensils
or even the TEA yet
- Soup came another 45 minute after ordering
- Meal finally came after 1 hour
- Meat were either under cook or overcook.

It might have improved since. But I know I wouldn't be going back.
Just go to Alleluia next door, and you get free refill too.

Kam Do is great bang for the buck... you get a lot of food for a small price.
but the qauilty is complete shit.... and I still go there like once a week!

Kam do for Bang for the buck.
Alleluia- good mix between taste and price. overall I like it
Kings Park - Best tasting "cream" sauces IMO

My vote still goes to Kings Park cause I still think their food tastes the best out of all the hk style cafes in richmond and they are the most consistent. Stopped going to Kam do after I found a fly in my noodles, which i asked to have returned and when the manager bitch brought it back there was another fucking fly in there. FUCK. Agree with TypeR, every fucking time I go to Silver Tower I get the fuckin runs so I stopped going there too.

Wow, it took them this long? I should print them an award for outstanding achievement in prolonged restaurant operations. Though I won't cause that's a waste of my time and effort for such a garbage establishment or should I say establishitment.

^Yes. Worst blogger ever.

Taste in food is like...so-so, lol.

They're good in the sense you can see what's new, but just because they explicitly blog that it is good does not necessarily make it so.
