Wont fess up to their mistakes

Submitted Thursday, December 10, 2015 - 7:19pm [Delivery]

This WAS one of my favourite places for asain food. I ordered as usual the sweet soy glazed chicken and beef rolls. When they came i opened so excited and they messed up my order. They gave me cold cheap tasting sweet and sour chicken. Completely different to what I ordered. I called them to explain and the lady on the phone just kept denying that they messed up. I explained that I am a frequent diner with them and i know full well what the soy glazed chicken was. And she started yelling at me!!! Even though i was very calm. This is ruined this place for me which is quite sad.

Poor Value for your Money
By synchro of Vancouver (11 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, December 8, 2015 - 4:03pm [Dine in]

I've been to this address many times in the past when Kaplan's was here. The food was always very good, service and value for your money too.
The restaurant part has changed. The Ambiance is okay except for the overly bright lights hanging overhead. They could reduce the wattage and safe some money on the hydro bill. I ordered my standard sandwich and a drink taking note of a price hike for the sandwich. To 'supersize' it would have cost $14.95. What I failed to note is that their smoked meat isn't Montreal Style Smoked Meat. So I was a little disappointed in that. The meal came fairly quickly, delivered to my table (you now take a number on a stand to place on your table). I didn't find anything special about their smoked meat - just ordinary I'd say. But the sandwich was small, no slaw but they did throw in a pickle. It was on bread the size a ciabatta. I read the rest of their menu board and nearly choked on $12 for a hamburger and $16 for a double-burger. Maybe it came with lots of fries - who knows. So sorry, I won't go back. No Montreal Smoked meat. Small portion. Just not value for your money.

X-site Grill & Bistro2270 E Hastings Street, Vancouver
X-Site X 2 visits with overall pretty good service/food
By shutupandeat of Vancouver (13 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, December 7, 2015 - 1:15pm [Dine in]

We've been out to the Vancouver X-Site restaurant twice on a Friday night.
Both times, the service was quite good. Casual and friendly servers with regular check-up on meals/drinks to top-up. They have food and liquor specials each night and the prices are reasonable. X-Site could be called a Sports Pub with live music and/or local watering hole.
Mexican specialties were quite tasty and good value.
Chorizo nachos were quite big plate and tasty.

On Friday nights, they have an open mic for locals that play/sing. Entertaining and laid back.

Very good location for a nice night out without blowing the budget. Highly recommend for anyone in the Hastings Sunrise neighbourhood.

Cheap food, cheapest service
By crislo of Vancouver (downtown) (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, December 6, 2015 - 6:20pm [Dine in]

I visited on Friday 4 Dec, 2015, (Davie) for dinner. I ordered Roast Lamb, that came to dry and cold. My server (Sandra # 6) was not attentive with her service nor when I informed about the food. Later, I requested a to go box because I had more than half my meal. The box came back with Rice ONLY. I asked about it and I was informed that she thought that I was done. How I told her, if I was done why do you think that I ask you to pack my food and what made you decide that I did want the rice but not the lamb, potatoes, etc? I even complain to the manager who apologized but no compensation was offered. So I paid for a full meal but I really ended up with a small part of it.

Stay away if you don't want to be humiliated!
By drmomen of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, December 4, 2015 - 1:00am [Dine in]

Stay away!!
They serve old horrible food in their buffet that seem kept refrigerated for days and from left overs of the previous day's buffet! They pour grease and oil/fat on all the food with lots of salt thinking they can fool people around to mask the rotten taste of old food. There's basically no service; rude and mean servers and chief. This is NOT a Lebanese restaurant; may be one day it was long ago when a Lebanese chief was in charge and the food was good back then; not anymore with the new immature Libyan caterers of poor attitude, food and service. Myself, my wife, and our infant went there for their "buffet" and the 'server' let us in without telling us that restaurant will close in half an hour. He removed all the food from the buffet while we were still eating and fully charged us! His excuse was "Working hours are written on the door and we are not staying a minute longer"!! He literally kicked us out! Not just that, while he was arguing with me at his desk another customer just came in and he served him although he was basically "closed"! That was unethica, unprofessional and the most horrible experience we've ever had in a 'restaurant'. So if you don't want to be humiliated and you want to keep your dignity stay away!

Victoria Chinese Restaurant1088 Melville St, Vancouver
Great downtown Dim Sum
By markattisha of West Vancouver BC (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, December 1, 2015 - 7:00pm [Dine in]

Since the Imperial Dim Sum closed down in the Marine Building and Victoria Chinese closed down for renovations for what seems like an eternity, there was a collective wail for dim sum in Downtown Vancouver.

Thank goodness that the Victoria Chinese has opened up again and seems rejuvenated. The dishes are standard dim sum fare and very reliable. Several of the old timers from Imperial have taken up residence at Victoria, and you can tell from the attentive waiters and the efficient service.

I've ate here since it opened years ago. It's a small hidden gem on Bruce Street. The owners are professional and the quality of food/fish is consistently fresh. I like all the veggie options (kappa rolls, oshinko, veggie rolls, etc) because they are healthy and good value. Their sock eye salmon is super, as is the tuna. The chef seems really keen on maintaining freshness. Can't ask for much more.

Waited 40 minutes for my take-out.
By masony of vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, November 23, 2015 - 12:43am [Take-out]

My girlfriend and I waited 40 minutes for our take-out order, 25minutes spent drinking hot tea out of a plastic cup... a group of 4 comes in and gets their food before ours, so I of course asked the server why is it taking so long and reasoned it with because this establishment had only 1 cook working. That's fine, but then when the server comes out with our food I get up ready to take our food and leave asap, I grab the handle of the plastic bag and she snatches it back, asking me are you sure this order is ours. Even though we were only ones in that restaurant waiting for food. Like seriously, this server had an intelligence of a hotdog.

Hot and spicy soups
By Gibbler of Coquitlam, BC (15 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, November 19, 2015 - 9:55pm [Dine in]

Had dinner on a Thursday night. Not busy, there were 3 other tables of couples. We don't normally eat Korean food but we were craving a hot soup dish and wanted something different from salty, conveyor belt Pho.
We had seafood ramen (spicy) and veg soft tofu soup. (Medium). The soft tofu soup comes in a stone bowl that keeps it hot. I hate it when soup gets cold before you finish eating it! We love ramen at Japanese restaurants and this "Korean style" ramen was really good too. The broths were different but both very flavourful. I think this will be our new place to have soupy, noodles!

Mexican Antojitos Y Cantina1049 Granville Street, Vancouver
Authentic Mexican Food
By lucyca of burnaby and vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, November 17, 2015 - 7:12pm [Dine in]

I'm surprised to see that no one else has reviewed this place before. The crowds this place drew definitely make it seem popular. I've eaten here a couple of times and can now say the food tastes authentically Mexican. There is a common trend to make Mexican food taste and look like Tex - Mex but this is not the case here.

The food was excellent, and I spotted more than one Hispanic person in the room - a clear sign that what I was getting was genuine food. This is a place to go in groups and the food is ridiculously good, whether it was tacos, quesadillas or chicharron de queso. I was also impressed by the restaurant's tidiness - simple, but clean.

Slice of Chicago5812 Fraser Street, Vancouver
New Pizza Delight
By lucyca of burnaby and vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, November 17, 2015 - 7:00pm [Delivery]

I’m a little wary of places that advertise themselves as a place because I always feel like they will sell you something completely different or watered down. This was the feeling I had with “Slice of Chicago”. Upon calling them to check, I decided to place an order.

The large for $18 set me up for a smallish looking pizza, which was the complete opposite when it arrived. The delivery boy came rather quickly and didn’t have to call to ask for directions on how to get to my place (something that happens all the time now that I’ve moved). My order consisted of cheesy bites and a large Chicagoan (the name of the pizza). The pizza was quite large to my surprise, extra cheesy and tasted delicious. Not greasy at all, and quite healthy.

Kintaro Ramen788 Denman Street, Vancouver
Appealing food, unappealing location
By jonesh19 of East Van (11 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, November 16, 2015 - 4:52pm [Dine in]

Kintaro is one of those places that are too good, but scare people away because of their claustrophobicly small location and long lineups outisde. It is rare to walk past by it an not see crowds of people lined up. I don't know if it is on purpose, but going in groups is the last thing you want to do there. Get your food, and get out.

Don't mean to be cynical, but part of the meal is how much you enjoy it. The noodles are excellent, one of the best I've had from all the places I have tried in Vancouver (miso, spicy garlic ramen), but I just wish I wasn't so rushed all the time.

Create your own pasta?
By jonesh19 of East Van (11 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, November 16, 2015 - 4:40pm [Dine in]

Cheap and pasta is not really my thing, but I had to make an exception for Basil. I had heard great things about it so, without a better place or thing to do, we came here on Saturday night for dinner. We had been here in the past and wanted to try out the create your own. Essentially, you get to choose your own pasta, veggies, sauce and extras. There is a lot to choose from and the restaurant has paid extra concern for healthy aka vegetarian, organic ingredients. The ratios are good for the quantity and price - yes, you might not be getting authentic Italian pasta, but the taste is still very good.

First impressions date night

I seriously don’t know what the hype is about this place, I have ordered before and didn't find the food so wow. So when by boyfriend and I had to change our plans and he suggested this place as the next best (and closest alternative) I wasn't particularly jumping up and down.

There was a 30 min wait minimum which further discouraged me, but seeing the food being served at the patio and the smells entering my famished system, I slowly started developing a liking (or a softer heart at least). One of the staff members started talking to us, and led us to the bar to make the waiting a little better.

After a couple of drinks, we finally got our coveted seat. Appies flew by, and on we were for the food. It was mattar paneer and chicken coconut with some naan to pair it with. The coconut was a suggestion from our waiter, and had this creamy texture that was very enticing. The meal didn't come out too bad for two, and we're thinking about coming back to try the buffet. Let's see how it goes!

It was a bit pricey but I'd definitely pay for quality. This food is delicious and authentically Thai. I have been back again and again. And will continue to visit this awesome restaurant. They messed up my pick up order once and I called them. They apologized and fixed it right away. That's great customer service.

Expecting much more
By analise of Vancouver (4 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, November 15, 2015 - 5:19pm [Dine in]

Well I just had high expectations based on reviews, this place left us disapointed (two couples).The resturaunt itself is nice, warm and quite in places that was good, unfortunately the food preparation seemed quite slapped together The scallops appetizer was two scallops on a plate for over $18. My maybe one cup of risotto with mushrooms was over $30 it was bland and had a very starchy taste to it with very little mushrooms. Bread came cold and was served with hummus...My husband had his drink taken before he even finished it. $100+ per person not including alcohol.
To much to choose from in the city we will not return.

My wife ordered at 4:13 on a slow Thursday as she goes night school at 6. I get home at five and no food yet for our family. We called and was told it was the only order. The driver finally shows at 5:50. My wife had to eat a sandwich and I had to make chicken strip and fries. I called for an explanation and none was given just sorry. Do not order from there !!
