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.
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.
I found my new favorite coffee shop. The inside seating area is small, but it just makes it feel like home. Cosy, and comfortable. Best coffee in Surrey, best service. I never had grumpy service, they all smile and are quick to serve my friends and I. I have been here many times with both friends and family and at different times throughout the week. Love it. Don't change a thing.
I first had the mis-fortune of running into this location when I lived in New West 5 years ago. First I am from Winnipeg and have enjoyed this brand of chicken,pizza, and ribs for over 20 years. This place is a total rip-off and is NOTHING like its food back in Winnipeg. Chicken had no taste the pizza was dry and very little in toppings, and the ribs where like shoe leather. I have complained here and its head office back in Winnipeg and heard nothing. So sad I will never go back better of to go to KFC.
It has been awhile since l was last here and l remember it being a decent place but after reading some of the negative reviews l was a bit saddened to read how it went down. l finally had the chance to check it out myself and was actually quite pleasantly surprised!
The sashimi was fresh the rolls perfect and the other foods like the chicken karaage, Ike karaage, spring rolls Etc was just absolutely awesome!
I'm not sure what some people expect but for an AYCE this place is great.
The interior maybe abit dated but the food is anything but.
The service was great as well, the servers were very kind and attentive.
Will definitely be coming back here very soon.
Having just arrive to Vancouver from Burma it is hard to find a Burmese restaurant anywhere in Vancouver. I was amaze that I found one in Kitsilano. My first impression that this restaurant ran by a Vietnamese family their food might not be authentic. For first time tasting as this restaurant I tried the seafood salad and the Mohinga. However to my amazement the salad and soup is great and as authentic as how they would taste like in Burma. They also have a Vietnamese menu, however I haven't try any Vietnamese dishes but I can only assume that it is as good as the Burmese menu.
It is a bit quiet in this restaurant but I didn't come at dinner time so I don't know if it would be busy then. There was only one server on shift, however the level of service was outstanding. I would definitely come back and would refer my friends to come. Thank you Rangoon.
First the beers: I was disappointed that only two of their own beers were on the menu, but found a nice drop of guest IPA. Although the restaurant had become half empty while we waited, the food preparation seemed slow. Perhaps they wanted to sell more beer? When the fajitas and salmon/crab cakes came, they were hot and we enjoyed the food.
I love this places, everything so fresh, homemade, extremely taste. They have a big menu but also they do different dishes for special of the day..I just can say Incredible taste...like in vacations in Mexico.
Try it the tacos so yummy, Enchiladas ask for the one in green sauce with melted cheese and come with fresh guacamole, beans and rices....They make my days HAPPY Thanks ADELITAS!!!!
This is not what south east asian food taste like.
I had the Char Kway Teow which tasted just like any ordinary stir fried rice noodles which you can get any any HK cafe.
Wife had the KL Noodles which tasted equally bad.
I grew up in singapore and malaysia so i know what it should taste like.
This place is just using all the names of the south east asian favourites and doing it their way.
This place is not worth your time or money. Was left standing at door for nearly 10 minutes while the server was busy on her phone. After being sat I waitng another 10 minutes for my drink. My coffee was always left empty. Food was below average with cost far above the norm. Not a good place
The salad bar is quite simple, but also adequate. We ordered the pepper steak stir fry and poached salmon. Both came quite quickly and were hot and delicious. The server was friendly, advised us when the food was coming, and made sure we were enjoying the meal. We found the decor to be relaxing, and liked the wall pictures. The restaurant was quite full, with clientele from babies to seniors.
Had lunch at Aphrodites earlier this week. Ordered the large bowl of turkey vegetable soup.
When the server arrived, the soup had spilt over into the plate, onto the bread, into the little butter container and was all over the spoon including the handle.
The server explained that he had "almost tripped" with the soup.
He wanted to know if i "cared" stating that "some people wouldn't care".
I told him i cared and he took the soup away.
He returned with the same bowl of soup complete with spill marks, same soggy bread and same butter but now on a new plate with a clean spoon. The bowl made ring marks on the plate and had cooled down.
Anyways i ate what was left of the soup-it was quite thin and not a lot of veggies and hardly any turkey.
For this they charged $7.95
My friend paid the bill and i don't know if a tip was left or not. I wouldn't have left him a dime.
I emailed in a complaint but never heard back.
A miserable experience-will never go back.
After briefly noting the existence of this new mini restaurant on Granville's busy downtown strip, I decided to stop in to evaluate the competition.
After a long and inclusive search, I have tried many of the city's variations on poutine, the classic french-canadian dish so beloved by many. Where would this little fast-food gem fall on the spectrum that included La Belle Patate and Mean Poutine?
The Frites poutine did not disappoint. Major points for the thick, soft fries, flavourful gravy, and authentic squeaky cheese curds. It's a simple but delicious take on the original.
As a bonus, the staff were friendly and pleasant, and the meal was super affordable-- $5 for a regular poutine.
I would love to try their waffles and fries with the myriad of sauces that they offer for dipping.
I have been visiting Vancouver for the longest of time, mainly for leisure but lately for business. A couple I was doing business with decided to take me out to dinner here. I know of other Indian restaurants but let them lead as they are locals. I shouldn't have. We arrived for our reservation on time at 6 pm only to find a couple-filled restaurant. The restaurant is more set up for couples and families, NOT business! In fact, we were one of the only tables that was not a couple. Skipping that part though, food was good. Prices are about $15 a dish, which is okay for dinner. I went for the mixed platter and then onto a chicken methi with rice. The timing was perfect, my main arrived as soon as I was taking my last bite off of the pakora. I felt that the chicken was good, but it could have been a bit more spicy. The coconut curry seemed really good, but I didnt try it. I will consider this restaurant for indian food when I come back for non-business related issues.
Whenever I am in Vancouver, I try to go somewhere different each time. Compared to Victoria, they have tons of restaurants with different food options to go for. I have been a countless number of times to Vancouver for a number of reasons but never ate here. Looking for a place to eat breakfast at 2 pm, you know your options will be quite limited.
Serving breakfast ALL DAY, 9th avenue was the answer to my prayers. There was a huge variety of things to choose from. Not feeling very explorative, I went for the 9th Ave Benny Special, a bagel and some coffee. How creative of me, I know. The hollandaise sauce was delicious and took away the sour feeling I had of ordering the most expensive one on the list AND waiting for it for a long time. Another thing that lifted my mood from the slow service and expensive meal was to know that my coffee was organic and fairtrade.
Good service, great deals on food and drinks. Every day there are great specials available without compromising any quality. Its a great place to watch the game or spend your night dancing and listening to live music. Servers are always very friendly and willing to make sure you have a great time.
We used to come here a lot as it was a good Greek place with different(read clean) decor. The owner/manager was very friendly and the food was good. This last trip willbe our last.
We came in on a weekend night with a group. The Owner/manager whoever she is is getting tiresome and the nicities seem faked and bored now. She didn't even look at us half the time when speaking. We didn't "feel the love" as she says or "make magic" when we paid the bill. What really ticked us off was that we were in a group of 8 and told that we could not us ONE entertainment coupon ($15) for a bill of close to $400 because it was good Mon-THurs. REALLY? "Im so sorry" pouty face. You could have taken it if you wanted to. Everyone at the table thought it was very petty and left a bad impression on 8 people. And, no, we wont be back on a "proper night" to use it. Thank you.
The food was ok, but not like it used to be. The tomotoes in the Greek salad were so underripe and hard they were inedible and the shrimp was very smelly and fishy. $5.50 is charged for more pita.
Greek cuisine is very easy to make at home and I find this place along with most other Greek plasces just cost too much for what you get. I'll save my dining out dollars for something I can't make at home.
Good food. Decent service. The suede chairs were oversized and super cozy. Food arrived in a timely manner. Our server was busy running around attending to other diners that it took awhile for him to clear our plates. I was not in a hurry so did not mind. I think it is a good late night option as well as I saw many diners stopping by for drinks or food.
This is one of my fav. place for Indian food. They have amazing option for lunch sets as well, take-outs also taste equally wonderful.Their House Curry with any type of meat is very tasty, although I usually order Butter Chicken. If you don't like overly sweet stuff, don't order their desserts. But don't forget to order a lassi to go with your meal.
