Just moved back to Vancouver / Burnaby from Toronto and need some help

looking for recommendations in the North Burnaby area near SFU or surrounding area (willing to drive for the good stuff!) after being gone for 12+ years

Mostly interested in good Japanese, Thai Italian (no Antons please ;-> ) and Greek recommendations at a reasonable price

Also looking for good cheap eats / neighbourhood gems (any cuisine, lunch or dinner) within a 15 - 20 min drive

Thanks in advance !

    1. I used to live in New Westminster and we think the neighbourhood gem is Amelia Cafe on 12th St. It's a real greasy spoon but you can get a full breakfast for 5 bucks, and you can sit and read the paper for as long as you want.

      Tatami Sushi (I think it's called) on Hastings near the bottom of the hill is apparently good, cheap all-you-can-eat sushi. I haven't been but my sister used to go all the time when she was at SFU.

      Capital Hill Szechuan on Hastings at about Willingdonish is great food, terrible decor, but it feels pretty authentic.

      1. If you like Greek, then I recommend Stefano's on Columbia St in New Westminster.
        For Sushi, I recommend Sushi King House on Granville near 64th in the Marpole area of Vancouver. Prices are cheap,food nice & fresh, and portions are large. Great value for your dining $. My friend & I regularly drive out from the valley to go to this place.
