This place is busy and popular with the Korean crowd particularly after 7pm so either arrive early or make a reservation. It is nothing special inside with simple chairs and tables but the service is fast and the food is good. This is a busy place as demonstrated by the lady pile of korean side [..]
Apparently this restaurant is a venture by a previous chef at the popular Banana Leaf malaysian restaurant chain in Vancouver. On the bright side, it is a welcome addition to the otherwise relatively limited food options in New Westminster. Unfortunately, I think we had heard it was much better than Banana Leaf and we were [..]
After a day of wandering around and hill-climbing in San Francisco, D needed some delicious, savoury Asian food. She had tracked down Osha Thai as being one of the better Thai food options in the city, and as we were staying downtown, we decided to head to the 2nd Street location. Decorated in the new-Asian [..]
Saturday am – out for Dim Sum – let’s try a new place. A has been here before and she likes how it has convenient parking in a parkade ($1) and is right across the street from Sun Yat Sen gardens. Inside, this place is cavernous – you could have a wedding for 500 here; [..]

The decor is nothing special [..]

This Korean restaurant on Robson Street located above the main street level would be easy to pass by. However, people in the know, think this is a pretty good Korean place. When you walk into the restaurant, despite the fan hoods above the tables, there is still a bit of smoky bbq hanging in the [..]

Who knew that New Westminster would have an authentic thai place with a thai owner/chef in the middle of all the mediocre food?
This is one of the best places I have eaten Thai food in Vancouver. The food is more authentic than most of the ubiquitous and relatively forgettable thai restaurants around town. Not only does that mean that the food is tastier, but if you ask for medium hot – it really is medium hot and [..]

We decided to use one of those entertainment book coupons for a free entree at the Tropika in Aberdeen Mall for lunch. The place is relatively nice and modern inside and the service is fast – since there were few tables occupied during this weekday lunchtime. Overall, the food was below average except for the [..]
