Highly recommended. Superb birthday lunch for our friend celebrating her 90th birthday. The table, food, ambiance, and service were as always at Globe, top notch. The salad selections were particularly delicious. We appreciate the excellent service by our server Josh who completed the celebration with his attention to detail. The restaurant is fortunate to have such personnel. Our friend felt very special, indeed. We would like to mention the special birthday dessert that was arranged by the on-site manager. We regret not noting her name. Many thanks to all! More

Very nice restaurant and the best service we had lately. The food are light and tasty. The duck and the sablefish are both excellent choices for us. The Brussels spouse were the best appetizer. Escargot were only so so. If you want to get together with friends and have wine and don’t want to have tons of calories, this place is awesome. More

Japanese | Richmond, Vancouver Suburbs

A really great experience with friendly servers & I would definitely go back again! I went on my own as the only reservation left for that day was for 1 person only. It was strange how the reservation was only for 1 person but I sat at a 2 person table so it would have been more enjoyable to go with another person if the reservation allowed it. I miss the time when you could order desserts & soba simply by lining up as it was a nice way to balance out the salty & sweet so I hope they do that again in the future. I would totally eat the soba for lunch too but sadly their soba noodle is only available during a certain time period. Recommendations for Tsujiri to improve would be to expand their store, this way more customers can sit down and have noodles without having to make a reservation & also having a bigger kitchen would ensure items aren't sold out as quickly. Ultimately, I would go eat at Tsujiri more often if their savoury food was available for the whole day and if they had more varieties for dessert & dinner such as specials of the week/month as it is always great to try new flavours which could potentially show up permanently on their menu making me want to come back all the time. Lining up sometimes for a long time makes me frustrated as they only have one person taking orders causing me to not come as often since some of the desserts I wish to try will end up being sold out by the time I reach the front of the line after waiting half an hour. The price range is a bit high which is also a factor why I don't come as often but if the items were cheaper, I feel like I would be more inclined to try more items on their menu which might cost more but feel more worth it. It would also be great if they just sold the ice cream by itself as it is delicious! I went to celebrate my birthday & they gave me a complimentary dessert which absolutely made my day which is why I would recommend this to people I know about the awesome customer service @the soba bar.

Life is too short to eat mediocre food. Whenever I travel, I search out places that are slightly different or unusual in some way. With a menu of Indian food by way of Uganda, Ember met the criteria. The service was excellent and the food delicious. The location was pleasant and afforded a nice view of the waterway. I will definitely go back the next time I am in Richmond. More

It was our first time here. Reserved for a group of 12 no problem. Server was awesome and very intuitive to our needs. All the beer was awesome and there was something for everyone. Food was mostly great. Traditional baked pizzas were the best according to the group. Some ordered the fish and chips. Servings were huge but thats a Good thing! The burger was somewhat unsurprising according to one. All in all a positive experience. Would comeback again with a huge group. More

I haven't visited Vancouver in a number of years, and this was on my list, as it is a Landry's facility. It is just a few miles from the airport, and I was staying nearby prior to my flight out. This was dinner. The location appears to be historic. The seafood was good. I got the "3 course" version of my seafood (sesame encrusted salmon). The crème brulee was tasty. More

The food is fantastic! Steaks cooked to perfection and the meal was served in a timely manner. The ambiance was fitting and the service was decent, though I wouldn't call it great. The only major complaint I have is parking. There is not a lot of parking around the restaurant, mostly because it's part of a mid-level hotel. At the time, there was construction on the street, making it impossible to turn left into the restaurant. More

Asian | Richmond, Vancouver Suburbs

We ordered the set dinner for 6 people and as a result were moved to the private dining room. The room was very comfortable and elegant. We each got our own soup pot, which made for a much more relaxing hotpot experience! The quality of the seafood and meat were outstanding! We had a nice selection of most of the main meat and seafood items on the menu. Most of us ordered the pork bone soup: it was ok. Landmark’s pork bone soup is much tastier. The service was very good. The table attendant was very accommodating but then again we were paying for it!! I would definitely recommend the private room for special occasions. The main dining room was very nice as well. I would definitely come back as the food quality is excellent. More

We’re Canadian owned (Hi Jim!), we make our meals with Canadian sourced ingredients, and serve over 50 million Canadians a year.
