More of a dinig hall type facility for the seniors home above, but it offers no frills dining on a budget. The only drawback, the menu is rather limited and no alcohol is served.
Tucked away inside a care home in Burnaby lies Hi Genki. A restaurant that has been around for years and has grown in popularity since. Focusing on home cooked style grilled fish, deep fried delicacies, and abundant servings, this destination has a very loyal following....More
