Metro Vancouver Restaurant Reviews
Akbar's Own Indian Restaurant1905 West Broadway, Vancouver
Memorable night, because of the service
By yellowcf of Mississauga (8 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, October 31, 2014 - 8:13pm [Dine in]

Eating at Akbars has been a great experience. The waiter that we had was extremely cordial and nice. We never had to call him or remind him of anything, which was good because we could focus on the important part: the meal.

I specially loved the malai kofta with basmati rice. I’ve had Indian food many, many times, and one dish I had never grown to love was the malai kofta. I decided to try it here and was absolutely delighted. By far, the best kofta I’ve ever had! The mango cheese cake is pretty good too.

Earnest Ice Cream3992 Fraser Street, Vancouver
Exclusive and expensive
By gabaqueen of ottawa (5 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, October 31, 2014 - 6:58pm [Take-out]

Open only four days a week and with the prices they charge for an ice cream, this is definitely one of those places that wants to differenciate themselves as high end, upscale food.

Other than that, the ice cream is good. I had the london fog and really liked it, but im not sure I would come back.

Chop Steakhouse & Bar10251 St Edwards Dr., Richmond
At This Point Not Worth Another Visit

Submitted Thursday, October 30, 2014 - 8:33pm [Dine in]

Came in around 7 pm on October 22. Wow such poor service here it is not even funny, from the front desk girl who was obviously very bored with her put off attitude to the extremely uneducated (about the menu) bus girl or hostess not sure what her title was. I ordered my food the restaurant is practically empty, but my food still managed to come cold and the lobster pasta I ordered was so dry. I asked the quickly passing "bus girl"?? for some extra red sauce for my lobster pasta as it was very dry (that's how I explained it) she brings me back crab steak toppings!! it was white for gods sake, and then rushes off. Anyway ew. I have been here before a few times few years ago and it was good, but now not so much. I did complain about my food to the waitress, told her it was horrible she offered to go back to the cook and have them re-heat it for me...lol

Akira Sushi4219 Hastings Street, Burnaby
Really enjoyed the BBQ eel
By suren of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, October 29, 2014 - 9:01pm [Dine in]

The food here is cheap and good. I had the BBQ eel which was delicious. The service here is great too. Perhaps the best part of this quaint neighborhood joint is the value for money. Considering that this is probably the best sushi I've had in Burnaby, the prices are pretty cheap. Will definitely be back again !

This is an excellent place to take "the boys" after their winning soccer game. The environment is comfortable and the sitting arrangement is comfortable and accommodating. There was a varied assortment to choose from and the pizza was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will return again in the future.

Senior's night out

We were delighted to discover that on Mon & Tues, seniors can have two meals for $17 plus the cost of two beverages. We ordered Liver & Onions and Fish & Chips, with two orders of hot tea. The portion sizes were adequate given that desserts were included in the deal, the food was hot and the service efficient and friendly.

Akbar's Own Indian Restaurant1905 West Broadway, Vancouver
Definitely Not the Best, But Not Bad Either
By radsah34 of North Vancouver (7 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, October 28, 2014 - 9:25pm [Dine in]

I'm not going to lie, I have to admit this was not my first choice... Vij's was. But the +1 wait time put us off so while driving off we decided to take our date to Akbars. I have found the food to be pretty good nothing "WOW" or exceptional though. But a safe choice I guess.

And bam, when we arrived we had to wait around here as well. It was late and we were w/o a reservation, so what choice did we have?

We had the rogan rosh, vegetable korma, butter chicken, rice and naan. The lamb was okay, a little unseasoned in my opinion, but the vegetable korma was delicious and kind of made up for the lack of taste of the other. My boyfriend did find the butter chicken good. For about $13 for a main, prices are not bad. Service was alright, the server was attentive but not too the point of being annoying or clingy.

Cotto Enoteca Pizzeria6011 Hastings Street, Burnaby
great pizza in North Burnaby
By itadakimasu of Vancouver (97 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, October 27, 2014 - 2:49pm [Take-out]

I've dined here a couple of times in the past year. What I remember most is how loud it gets inside with the high ceiling and music cranked. My first choice for Italian food in N.Bby was down one block but is now closed, so I thought I'd try Cotto again for take out. Kept it simple with a couple of pies and a salad. The pizzas are small but it's the quality that makes them shine....thin crust and not overloaded with toppings. If you want to get stuffed or feed the kid's soccer team, go to Pizza Hut. One small suggestion to the staff....if someone has ordered salad with their takeout, please don't pack it with the hot food - warm salad is sad.

Little Ma and Pa kind of Place....
By maggiemia of East Vancouver, BC (24 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, October 26, 2014 - 11:15pm [Take-out]

I have been here three times now...twice for dine in and once for take out.....on my way home to Vancouver...I thought...since I am out in Coquitlam...grab some Gnocchi and go home....I wasn't feeling that great...and I was craving Pasta and Rosa's..since it's been a while.....I forgot how small the place is.....the owner really needs to open up a bigger place....

I felt uncomfortable picking up my order....I ordered two gnocchi's, One ravioli and a caeasr salad...wow, almost $72......I couldn't believe the price....I did look under the web site for the menu and there was no prices on it....or at least I did not see any prices at all...maybe my imagination....

Too expensive.
When I was paying...I noticed it's too dark in the area...for ice and paying.....I like to see if there is any hair when working....they need more lights.....I think I will call the health dept.!!!
The girl that served me was nice but I didn't know if she did lick her finger to grab the plastic bag to open....that is a no no in my books....that goes for even cashiers everywhere.....either Rosa (Anna?) should hire more people on a Fri and Sat. nights.

When I got home finally....I was saying to my dad....that there was not much sauce on both the pastas...and we are both Italian.....

The caesar salad was not special at all.....and you don't get much either....again the price was too much for everything......

If the owner does not care to make the place bigger or brighter....more staffed.....then close down.....
Finally words......do try this place once....then you will see how small everyone is talking about....
Food is good....but take out is small quantity....for the prices...??

Great food for little money. Service is pretty good. If you want a cheep place to eat this is really a good spot! I loved the spring roles and the soups. The restaurant is quite run down, but it adds to the ambiance. There all also TV's that show sports. Overall, love this restaurant.

The dine-in and take out food is exceptional here! We have always had fantastic service too! Vic has always greeted us and taken care of us like we are friends joining him for dinner. His staff is always on top of every step of our meal. This cozy restaurant has a very comfortable decor and is very affordable.
The steak, souvlaki, calamari and pizza are some of our favorite dishes. We have never been disappointed with our meal. Great presentation and portions too.
We love this restaurant so much that we are planning on having a Christmas party here with friends this year!
Bring your family and friends! You will not be disappointed!

Boathouse Restaurant, The900 Quayside Dr, New Westminster
I Am a Fan ... Converted.
By Gambolling_Gourmet of New Westminster (17 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, October 25, 2014 - 2:01pm [Dine in]

I first tried The Boathouse back in 2008, and was rather disappointed after 3 visits.

The first time I went I had a three different types of fish assortment dish, one of which was a small chunk of halibut that was terribly undercooked. It was like a cross between sushi and something seared ... but not seared enough at all; it was cold and mushy. Not nice. I was told "The cook likes to do it that way." Halibut does not work well as warm semi-sushi, in my opinion.

The second visit was OK. I don't remember what I ordered, but I do remember that the service was dreadful; very slow and inattentive.

The third visit I had a sort of paella thingy, which was dry, small, overpriced, and not very tasty, and a cup of chowder which was also rather blah and bland. Service was only just passable.

Anyway, I decided to give it another try in July of this year (2014), and I had the grilled swordfish, and heritage tomato salad. It was excellent; really very good.

I have been back 5 times since then, and each time the food and the service have been first rate. Perhaps they made a major change in management or management operations, I don't know, but I have become a converted fan. And my server has been super: attentive, helpful, friendly. She does what I think all good servers should, which is to enhance the dining experience.

On the negative side, I think most dishes, and certainly the wines, are overpriced. The mark up on the wine seems to hover around the 100% area, which I think is far too high. The twenty ounce beer with a take-home glass is rather nice, although the brew options are very, very limited.

Anyway, as I say, overall I think it's a good dining experience, and I am a Fan. Now.

A different take on Gyoza
By itadakimasu of Vancouver (97 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, October 24, 2014 - 12:13pm [Dine in]

Went here last week with 4 friends. The building is old but they did a great job on renovating and making it hip and comfortable. Greeted by a nice young lady and server. Lots of interesting dishes on the menu. We ordered one of the Gyoza dishes which comes in a pan and stuck together. They were tasty and not like the usual gyozas which can be bitter sometimes. Also had the brussel sprouts which were fantastic! I still prefer Gyoza King (Robson) for gyozas but I will come back to Gyoza Bar again to try everything else on the menu.

Submitted Friday, October 24, 2014 - 12:08pm [Dine in]

First the "Solid" features....The ambiance is warm, dark wood and cosy. The service was professional and courteous. Free parking.

The Mediocre.... The saganaki appetizer was great. The greek salad and Kalamari was your usual fare. But the Prawn Souvlaki was bland and all the accompanying cooked vegetables were just taking up space.

The volume of the music was too high. It made speaking to others at our table an effort. The other patrons talking added to the volume (which I know you can't do much about).

It's great that there's a place like this in North Burnaby and big eaters would probably like it.

Came here to try the brisquet noodle soup and see what this place was like. Ordered the beef noodle and a bowl of chicken ball noodle soup. Bad on both counts why they cant flovot the brooths is beyond me tasted like hot water over noodles and meat and vegtables thrown I in. Could have made way better at home as for the lack of service the waitress was treating us like the plague, and was less then helpful. Bad time had here and will never go back too bad so very sad.
