Katsu Japanese Restaurant - December 13, 2006
7 out of 13 people found this review helpful. The food here isn't bad...it just isn't good enough for the price I'm paying. The location and setting is great, though. I recommend this place for casual (but not TOO casual) entertaining. You want to impress and have fun, but you don't wanna break the bank. This is the place to go. Food is Delicious and selection is vast. However, I do have to emphasize again: THE PRICE! It's a rip-off. If you're looking for good quality Japanese food (without the side-order of sticker shock), walk a bit futher (or back up, if you're not come from the direction of Pape station) and go to Sushi Delight. It's not as nice-looking as Katsu but I guarantee the food is just as good (if not better.)

By the way, Katsu is pretty busy on most nights. Come early or be prepared to wait. This isn't a fancy place, but it sure as hell isn't a cheap one. Service is slow but staff is courteous.

I do not recommend this place.

Jumbo Video - December 13, 2006
5 out of 5 people found this review helpful. This is where I go to fulfill all my video and video game renting/buying needs. Great selection and decent prices too. They have New Releases, Old-Time Classics and everything in between. Most of the staff are quite willing to help you locate whatever movie you happen to be looking for at the time. However, they all seem to be on an endless supply of sleeping pills until you tap them on the shoulder and say, "Excuse me." So don't be afraid to speak up...they're not very enthusiastic at first. The location is also quite convenient because its in the same building as a fairly large Loblaws (grocery store.) You can get everything done in one place without any fuss.

They also have a fair sized game collection for rent. If you're looking to purchase a game or console, however, I suggest you look elsewhere for bigger selection and better prices.

I recommend this place.

Iceman Video Games - October 21, 2006
10 out of 13 people found this review helpful. They have a pretty good collection of video games. I've found a few that I couldn't even find at Futureshop or Best Buy. However, the staff is terrible. They're all so incredibly rude. It sometimes even seems like they're doing you a favor by "letting" you purchase a 50 dollar video game from them. Also, the games don't come cheap. Unless you simply cannot find it ANYWHERE else, do not buy from here.
I recommend this place.

Red Lobster Restaurants - October 14, 2006
10 out of 12 people found this review helpful. Pretty good place to have dinner with friends and family. If you're looking for exceptional food, though, this isn't the best place to go looking for it.

It's nothing special, really. LOTS of seafood but most of it is cooked in the same way; broiled and smothered in butter and/or cheese. It's pretty satisfying the first time you eat it (as in...the appetizer) but after a while, it gets kind of...boring. Service is slow but the staff is very nice. The price is a little on the high side so if you're looking for a cheap place, don't go to Red Lobster. If you do go, however, I recommend the fish. They make awesome Rainbow Trout. :D

I recommend this place.

Beach Cinemas - October 14, 2006
9 out of 9 people found this review helpful. I usually go to Paramount to watch the latest movies. However, my friends don't like the crowds there so we decided to try another theatre (a bit closer to where we all lived.) That turned out to be a great choice. I would say this place is better if you're taking your kids or the whole family with you. The environment here is very laid-back. You just come in, sit down, and watch the movie. No hassle. No fuss. It's usually very quiet(even on premier days) and the staff is very friendly. Nice selection of snacks and the seating in the theatres are decent. There aren't as many theatres, though so most of the time, there are only new releases playing. It's TTC assesible (which is important since none of my friends drive.) There are local places for you to grab a bite to eat. The tickets are also cheaper here then at Paramount. Come here if you're just looking to spend a quiet day with your friends and/or family.
I recommend this place.
