Dollar Meats is a classic bbq joint in the heart of chinatown.Bbq pork ,ribs ,duck are classics that are well worth the visit.Friendly butcher's in store happy to help ,also grab a pair of the dried sausage,good stuff.There is sauces that accompany the bbq'ed meats that augment the flavours to new heights,enjoy.

Kitchen on the Ridge22375 Lougheed Hwy., Maple Ridge
Substandard Chinese Fare
By CastIronCook of Vancouver (13 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, February 23, 2018 - 3:47pm [Dine in]

Dining at Kitchen on the Ridge is a memorable experience.Memorable in the sense that every dish looks unappetizing ,tastes like yesterday's garbage prepared with no skill. Overcooked heavily battered items with meager protein portions are not worthy of a patrons money ,neither is the tasteless stale noodle dishes.Their fried rice is an embarassment to chinese chefs everywhere.All in all a bleak dining experience to be had.

Blenz Coffee9750 140th Street, #105, Surrey
Worst Service Ever Experienced
By ItMe of Vancouver & Sussex (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, February 22, 2018 - 8:33am [Dine in]

I'm not being hyperbolic when I say that this Blenz location has by far, the worst service I have ever experienced. I work close by and have since stopped going in hopes that a new manager will some day take over.
I'm assuming the food and drink is the same at every Blenz - as it's a franchise. But service effects everything (the tiny little things that add up). If the staff felt good about where they work, maybe they'd smile and customers notice that kind of thing.

Overly priced cafeteria food

When you get soup from here, you will literally get a couple noodles at best, the rest is broth and tastes like food they serve at a low end seniors care facility. My co-worker ate their egg salad sandwich and let's just say she spent the rest of her shift on the toilet. Do not eat here, dont even bother dealing with the manager with a ponytail and glasses who couldn't crack a smile if you paid her. She will argue with you when you tell her how your food or drink were made poorly, her response will coldly be "that's how we make it" no that is NOT how you make it, I have been to other blenz locations and none are run this poorly. My friend ordered a tea and the manager steeped it for maybe 30 seconds then took the bag out, she paid for an effing Tea! She should keep the darn bag! But no, she doesn't run business that way, she runs it like a soup kitchen for the homeless. If you do eat here, expect your bowels to be open gaping holes afterwards as their food is stale and just plain gross, they probably use rejected produce from subway. I feel bad for the workers who are actually nice and when this manager is working alongside them, I've literally seen her tell them to do things her way, the CHEAP way.

White Spot405 Dunsmuir St, Vancouver
Great experience

Submitted Monday, February 19, 2018 - 2:41pm [Dine in]

Some days ago, my friends and I went to White Spot to have a nice dinner and we were really excited about it, because we all had heard of its tasty food and good reputation. Honestly, this place exceeded my expectations. We didn't have to wait to be seated and we got to pick our table. The food was great and good cooked, I loved it. The server was so nice and make us feel welcome the whole time. The atmosphere was relaxing. However, we could hear people talking because the background music was low, but still I am comfortable with the whole service.
This is obviously a family restaurant, and I think there are a lot of people who actually enjoy to go there, the food is great, it has a pleasant atmosphere and the prices are very reasonable. I will definitely go back and I also recommend it to the ones who loves to have a delightful dinner. You would not feel disappointed.

One of the restaurants that I first tried at my first time in Vancouver,and he keeps being one of the bests. I used to go there with my dad a few months ago, but I also experienced with my friends. In general this restaurant is amazing! The experience that we had is incredible from the beginning till the end. They receive you appropriately and always smiling. Looking to be happy that they are there waiting for a new guest. The atmosphere and the ambiental music matches perfectly with the restaurant. We are not a good fans of drinking but, they have a bar and a lounge for those that want. They speciality are the steaks and in my particular opinion, I definitely recommend the Top Sirloin. We did not have to wait much time until the food arrive, they are quite quick. The variety of the menu were perfect for us. If you do not want to spend too much money, you can order some appetizers and share with your friends. There was any kind of mistake committed,I have no words to give them a bad critic. The experiences I had there, was memorable and I definitely want to spend more time there in the future.

Vassilis Souvlaki Greek Taverna6558 Kingsway, Burnaby
Good Greek Food
By wc0129 of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, February 16, 2018 - 12:10am [Dine in]

Like Greece is the pearl of the Mediterranean, Vassilis Souvlaki Greek Taverna is another gemstone (or Ferrari) in Burnaby! The restaurant itself is painted white and blue (Greek signature colors) and their background Greek music is pleasing. It is a perfect place to feel exotic. The food is served with high quality of Greek traditional flavors. However, there was only one server in the restaurant, plus the owner as a host, sometimes we needed to wait for the server. Besides, I went there with regular customers and according to them, the owner is quite special. Anyway, among mezedes (Greek appetizers), we ordered Kalamarakia (Deep-fried squid) and Feta with olives (the famous Greek cheese), they were impressive because Kalamarakia even reminded me of my hometown Taiwanese food. I have no idea that the cheese can be so special especially, for it’s between fried and baked styles. No complaints about my chicken souvlakia; this dish was incredibly delicious with Greek salad, rice pilaf, roast potatoes, and tsatziki. The atmosphere was awesome and relaxing and the price for the food was definitely worthy. No wonder it is the best Greek restaurant in Burnaby for the last 15 years!

Disappointed

Submitted Thursday, February 15, 2018 - 10:46am [Dine in]

We used to call this our "go to"pub, but after last night we are off to find another eatery.
My fav meal the roast beef dip sandwich came with a very small portion of meat, and fries and the salad was also sad.Bun needed a steak knife to cut, fries greasy and must have sat under the warming light.Beer RED TRUCK was perfectly cold and so it should be. Waitress was NOT busy and she was friendly.How can pub grup quality and volume change ... must be cut backs and the competition in this area is huge.Hope they survive. So many more eateries to choose from in Sunny south Surrey,goodbye Original Joe's.
In hind sight we should have mentioned our disappointment, but it was a somewhat special occasion and didn't want to fuss.

We dined here on a Tuesday night, quite busy. Ordered 3 lamb baked in clay pots [Kleftico], 2 schnitzels and one souvlaki. The Kleftico was ,as always very tasty and a huge portion, the kids has schintzels and again they loved them. Everyone had compliments about their apps and mains.
Alexa was our waitress for the evening and she was very attentive to our needs.I would highly recommend this little gem.
The physical restaurant is in need of a complete make over. Very old and getting tired.

Kuma Japanese Restaurant3446 Dunbar St, Vancouver
Nice Place with Decent Food

Submitted Tuesday, January 30, 2018 - 9:24pm [Dine in]

I like this little restaurant. They recently renovated and it has a clean ambiance. The owners and staff are all Japanese and are always very polite.The food is fresh and tasty. Nothing will blow you away, but I've been there (or done take-out) a dozen times and have never had a bad meal and always felt satisfied. Prices are about what you'd expect elsewhere - $4-$5 for common rolled sushi and $9-$10 for different specialty rolls. They offer other traditional Japanese cuisine as well. It has good health reports and is a cut above anything else in the Dunbar area. Recommended!

They have insulted, humiliated me
By inherluggage of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, January 26, 2018 - 9:05pm [Take-out]

I cannot believe what just happened. I bought a chocolate ganache cake from this bakery but found the cake not sliceable. There was barely any sponge to hold the cake - it was 97% filled with cream, like pudding. I tried cutting two slices, but the cake just kept collapsing - it was clearly not a "cake" but a "tiramisu." I went to the store today and asked for an exchange. The owner said it was my fault the cake had collapsed; I was supposed to run the knife under hot water before attempting to slice it. I told him I had this cake many times in the past and had no trouble, and anyone could clearly see that there was only the thinnest layers of sponge to hold the cake. Th owner then said he'd give me an exchange, but he'd have to take two slices out of the new cake to compensate for the ones I'd taken. I could not believe what I was hearing. Then the daughter of the owner came and told me she'd give me a whole cake but then I'd have to pay $10 for the two slices I'd taken. I was flabbergasted. I was humiliated. I told them they shouldn't treat their customers like this, and they said they had many customers so they didn't need another one. I went to this store on every special occasion to grab cakes; I cannot believe they would treat a customer like this. They have insulted and humiliated me beyond words. I have never seen such cheap, greedy people. I will never, ever go back to this place.

Does not honour Groupon policy of amount paid never expires.

I bought a Groupon for 10 gelatos. We were given a punch card on our first visit to use for the remaining 8. When we returned the little girl would no longer honor the card because it had an expiry date. I said fine but you still have to honor the amount we paid. She said no. So we paid for 10 gelatos and only got 2. BE CAREFUL OF THIS PLACE. THEY DO NOT HONOR THE GROUPON POLICY!!! Without Groupon it is overpriced. I don't know if this is their actual policy or the little girl just doesn't know what she is talking about. We will never go back.

This has to be hands down the worst experience ever! I came in with my two kids as drive thru was slammed. No line up so we got to the till and the cashier seemed really confused about my order and kept getting agitated so I laughed and asked her if we could start again because she looked really confused and flustered. Her answers and attitude kept getting sharper and sharper and at the end of the order when I asked her to apologize for her attitude especially in front my kids she started arguing with me loudly and when I said please go get your manager the manager at first seemed nice and accommodating. He seemed to brush off his employees horrible attitude and awful behaviour he promptly proceeded to delete my (the order that took his employee three times to get right) and told me he would not serve me and told me to get out and that I could never come back again. I can not believe this happened in front of my two boys. forgot to mention the incompetent manager asked me never to come back lol and that he never wants to see me again in this area? Was that a threat? Fool

Poor customer service, rude staff.
By Tastebudz of Langley, BC (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, January 1, 2018 - 3:12pm [Dine in]

Went here on New Years Eve of 2017. To summarize our experience:
1) Montana's had run out of chicken, so my wife could not have the dish she would have liked.
2) We waited an hour for our main course to arrive, no apologies from staff
3) My 10 oz steak was more like a 5oz steak (yes I know 25% or so of the weight may be lost during cooking). When I asked to speak with the manager regarding this, I was waiting for 20mins before I asked again to speak with the manager (food getting cold during the wait). I was told that the manager was too busy to see me (perhaps there was no manager on site that evening?) I did get a new steak cooked though which I got to go. By the way the waitress also forgot to ask how I liked my steak cooked.
4) The waitress had to be reminded of the cookies which went with our kids meal
5) We had some food to take home. Instead of the waitress taking the food away to put into carry out containers, she left the empty containers on our table to pack up ourselves.
6) On paying, I still left a 2% tip (more than generous considering the experience), the waitress literally dropped the receipt onto the table, said nothing and walked off!

Himalaya Restaurant6587 Main St., Vancouver
Average buffet, poor ambiance, very nice sweets
By iknowwhatsgood of Vancouver (11 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, December 17, 2017 - 2:39pm [Dine in]

Went here for the buffet. They have a large buffet, judging by internet pictures and it did have 8 or 10 hot dishes. Thats why i picked it, and positive reviews on the internet. Anyways I just moved around here and decided to start trying these on occasion.

So first off, the ambience was that of a cafeteria. The place was not elegant by far. Has tube lighted menus and is clearly set up to live off the buffet and ample sweets section. I would not bring anyone i wanted to impress here, they didn't even clear the plates or really have any service after the initial drink. I stupidly tipped them by habit and I wish i didn't. But getting by that, there were lots of food items in the buffet. The chicken dishes of which there were two, did have plenty of chicken. however some of the other dishes such as pees and paneer were pretty runny and thin, not thick and creamy as one would expect. The naan was actually close to pita (thinner) but this may be just a varietal difference. It still tasted like naan. Butter chicken was the best thing out of the food and it wasn't what i would call stellar.

All in all, not very good ambience, price of $15 was a bit high for what you get. But its really a typical indian buffet. Not anywhere near the best food, the flavours kind of run together and nothing was memorable. However it was of generally average quality and nothing was really bad, so i would say an overall 2.5 out of 5. I would eat there again, but probably by myself, alone, if there was nothing else available, or i had just been out smoking mad weed..

The one thing that they did do right were the sweets. The gulab jamin and jalebi were very nice and really perfect. So for take out sweets this place is actually very good!

Blenz Coffee4600 Clarence Taylor Crescent, #111, Delta
Fake News! ( Blenz Ladner)
By CoffeeLVR of Ladner , B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, November 29, 2017 - 2:10pm [Take-out]

Long time patron of Ladner Leisure Centre using Blenz coffee. ( 10 plus years customer)
After some ' internet ' investigation - it seems some of the posters ( contributors) here have a bit of a ' google' history of " 1 -starring" a few places - including a Ladner Elementary (?) school. wow.
Really, who goes to the bother of slamming a business all over the internet - It is hoped these frustrated and unhappy individuals reflect on their misused tongue(s) and fingers, Try investing into some meaningful and positive behaviour. I have had coffee from Blenz ( this , and other locations) I have always received friendly and personalized service. Perhaps the posters were upset that the service staff was not willing to take their narcissism and abuse.

The quality is excellent, the price is fair market value in the Lower Mainland. Unlike Starbucks, the coffee beans are ethically and organically sourced. There are many non-milk options and healthful menu choices. Really, who complains like this? A suggestion : these posters really must try to venture more outside of the ' Bermuda triangle' ( aka : Steveston- Ladner - Twass) ... spend time in the real city more often ( please! ) instead of wasting precious time as self-made keyboard warriors. Thanks.
Ps: tell the owner you are a BCAA member and you will get a discount :)
