This is another one of Vancouvers old Restaurants and looking at it you can see the rundown. Tried the highly recommended lamb which didnt blow me away with the soggy luke warm accompaniments. The place is considerably cheap and you definitely get what you pay for. Not a place if you want to impress some one.
This is one of the Oldest Japanese restaurants in the Downtown area. Place is busy all the time. Service was pleasant and quick. Food was tasty and nicely done. I always prefer AlaCarte. Again considering the area prices are reasonable. Quality of food and freshness was outstanding. And its my go to place when I crave Japanese.
This is another one of the nicest Dining rooms in this Expensive city. Food was reasonably good but this place lacks big time in Service. Whats about this city good servers are hard to find. Or they need more training to interact and basic server skills. Please smile. Anticipate. We have to wave everytime and felt we were bothering them. Its a great location. Great room and I wish they had better service to go along with the food. Drinks were awesome.
In the Chic Alberni St its a busy place. If you need cakes do need to pre order or you can pick up whats not sold. Prices are on the high side, considering the location I wont complain in Vancouver. But lacks in quality and service. Hope they had more selection available for take away pastries.
Great location on Burrard St. Very convenient to meet up people. Good Italian food with good Old school service. Lot of Game to try and good selection of wines. Seems a bit pricey but considering the location its very reasonable. Will keep coming back. This absolutely is one of the nicest restaurants in Vancouver.
A trip down Vancouver memory lane to a Cannery spin-off, complete with dated but charming seafaring decor. Our server's nickname was Teddybear, and he was a teddybear. Glasses of wine and food portions were generous. The salmon cake appetizer was really good, big enough for two people. The Salmon Wellington was a beautiful throwback to one generation ago when Beef Wellington was the star on many menus. Flavors were subtle. The freshness of the fish was prominent because of that. Still, a little overcooked, and the pastry was not the greatest, but it was delicious nevertheless. My partner's halibut was fine.
Pink Peppercorn no doubt would have been the best restaurant in BC 50 years ago, and it sort of feels like you have stepped back in time there, but now the big gun chefs are here from all over the world, competition to be new and exciting and unique is fierce in Van, many millions are pumped into decor, and old school can't quite compete anymore if fine dining is what you're after. But I think Pink Peppercorn has most of the other guys beat in restaurant finesse, which is cultivated over time, and from genuinely wanting to bring the customer joy.
Went there on a Friday night with friends.
Nice beer but expensive.
Extremely loud throughout. Do not go in if you want a decent conversation, you will come out hoarse from shouting !
Conveniently & centrally located. An easy to find bar, with a pool table & shuffleboard games upstairs.
We'd heard great things of this restaurant from friends, some of whom originate from the sub-continent, so we thought we'd give it a try last Friday evening. We'd also travelled extensively through the sub-continent & love Indian food, even though western menu items tend to bare little resemblance to the Indian dish of origin. Most dishes have been modified to suit western tastes, esp. by British culinary influences.
It's centrally located in the heart of town & is relatively easy to find. It's exploiting it's location & potential high clientele turnover in the price factor, but I was somewhat let-down by the whole experience.
The place is extremely neat, clean & tidy inside. It is popular & by selecting a window table you can watch the world go by on Burrard whilst you eat.
There was a great range of food, but it was extremely expensive for what you got. One poppadum "cut" into 4 cost $3.25 & each pickle offering was $3.25. Veg. options generally start at $15.75 & meat dishes from $18.75.
I like my curries extremely hot & asked accordingly on ordering, but had to send it back because it was so bland. It was meant to be lemon & coriander-based, but was weak in flavour & lacking substance. The dish that came back was different altogether - more tomato-y based. All our meals were somewhat watery, thin & on the small size. The garlic nans were great though.
There was no draught beer. There was a good range of bottled beer, prices of which started from $7.
It was a very expensive Indian, the bill for 4 coming to $160 !
Good to have tried it, but we wont be going back.
Just go to Vaades in North Vancouver, it's tons better value for money & has an absolutely excellent range food..
We went in to order some deli. The quality is above average but pricey. The young woman who served us licked her fingers so she could pick up the sheets of paper they lay down to weigh the meat. Disgusting and a health code violation! I complained to the manager. He said it was wrong but probably just a habit from home. Excuse me. These people are handling food. It is unacceptable period. As customers you can become the victim of all kinds of nasty things by improper handling, including Hepatitis. If you go there make sure to ask your server to go wash her hands!
My husband and I have been looking forward to trying Chameleon for quite some time now. We were impressed by the appetizers and the first 30 minutes of our visit. Over the next 75 minutes, I ordered another glass of wine (never got), watched other customers receive their orders (who arrived after we did) and asked twice about our meal. We were assured it was coming, with apologies. We arrived at 530, and at 715 our waiter came back (still no wine) and advised us he had FORGOTTEN to place our order! No offer of comped appetizer, drink, nothing. We paid and left, quite disappointed. In the very least, there should have been SOME effort made to entice us to return. Nope, Nada, Nothing. Extremely poor customer service.
I have treated 5 male friends to dinner at this restaurant. Each one said it was the best Indian food he has eaten in Vancouver. Unfortunately, not one of them has returned the favour. Anyway… The food is delicious, the restaurant is clean, and the staff is wonderful. I will keep going back.
I've had better at this restaurant, but maybe that was before it changed hands. What a disappointment!
The breading was bland and the overall effect was not crispy, but soft and totally unappetizing. The meat was pounded so thin that it was only about 1 millimetre thick. There were no more than 5 small pieces of homefried potato underneath it. It was far too expensive at $17 for so little food on the plate and poorly prepared food at that! I would go so far as to say that it was shockingly terrible. I took a photo on my cell phone of the wiener schnitzel dish I ordered.
This is the best sushi that I have ever had. My sister and I and some friends go quite regularly and are never disappointed. It does not seat that many, about 7 tables but we have never had to wait for a table. We are all retired so we do not mind changing chairs or tables if it gets them more customers. The food is fresh and the service is great. I believe that for the most part it is just the two of them she waitresses and he makes the sushi. Your get tea, miso soup and small tasty dessert. It is the best sushi for your dollar. I can't wait to go back. In fact after writing this review decided to go tonight . Leona Jensen and Norma Macnamara
J, her hubby and their son stopped in while enjoying the sunny Vancouver weather. For an early dinner, the place was packed. After a good half an hour wait, we finally managed to get a seat. Normally I wouldn't feel the wait but the kiddo was really getting worked up about not getting served. Really want to thank the server for being comprehensive and talking to him all the while. Brownie points for that!
Once we were seated, things moved rather quickly. Our order was taken and appys started arriving. For the first time, I liked the pakoras over the samosas. Kudos to the one who recommended it. J and I especially enjoyed our chicken methi. It was probably one of the best I've had in a while.
More than the food, the service was excellent. The waiter was patient with us, even when the kid spilled all his drink on his shirt. Water constantly refilled was probably a sign from J who found the food a bit too spicy.
I am usually a sucker for comfort food, and so every time I make it to Vancouver, the Flying Pig is the place go to. Without question. There's something about this place that keeps on drawing me back, not sure if it is their pulled pork poutine or what, but the ambience is great. I love the nonchalant feeling to this place - it's like everyone is not too worried or hurried in having a good time - but all within the limit of course.
This time around, things weren't such as pleasant. We arrived for an early dinner only to find ourselves with a line-up at the door. Comprehensive and normal. Nothing to worry about. We were told the wait was going to be half and hour maximum but ended up waiting more than an hour. Okay, we can deal with that. What we couldn't deal with was the rude staff and manager. Had it not been for my friends, I would have left. Hoping this was a one time thing and won't happen again.
Really like Orrange. Stupid name. Wine and beer super cheap . Fries are the best I have very had anywhere . I don't even like fries but I have them here. Never tried the chicken "stripes" not sure what they are. Never tried the butter to see if it's crispy or not . That would be weird. I super love the wedge sald it's the. Best. ,go have cheap applies and cheap booze. It's good. Not trying to be a fancy restaurant just cheap applies and cheap drinks
I will not talk about menu because it is not a menu for the place they are positioning them self. It is a mix of food truck menu and low level eatery, but prices are not.
I have to say the service was on good level.
However, food was not eatable. Fish and chips was way to over cooked, butter was not crispy enough, size was small and pricey, chicken stripes and fries was to oily, but chicken was cooked well. Also we have tried pork ribs - it was a huge mistake. Ribs was to dry. Fries are not good as well, in 5 minutes it was soggy. Coleslaw is the only thing we liked :)
If place positioning it self as restaurant it should provide decent food.
Do not recommend to go to the place until they fix their food.
I have never been so insulted in my life! My two teenaged daughters and I went here while waiting for the ferry. The woman working there totally ignored us while we stood in front of her waiting to be served. A man came along and she served him immediately. I said, loud enough for both of them to hear, that we were there first and they both glanced over, then ignored us. After he left I said "excuse me" twice to get her attention. She still ignored us. At that point we somewhat loudly said that if we are being ignored we will go somewhere else, still to absolutely no response from her. Yet, somehow she had no problem hearing the other customer place his order. DO NOT GO HERE.
Best service and best French restaurant ever. We went here to celebrate the anniversary of my parents over lunch last week. We had baked escargot, lobster tempura/ scallop salad, lamb shank ( juicy and tender), salmon/ prawns / halibut ( melt in your mouth) platter, lamb chop and grand marnier souffle (soft and puffy).
We love this place. We had already made another 2 reservations for next month.
I've been going here for years even when it was kind of a dive before the most recent renos. I used to go because it's close to my house. I go now because it looks amazing inside and the new menu is fantastic. The short rib beef dip is for sure the best I have ever eaten in my life. The brechetta is to die for. The cooks just take so much care in their food. I'm pretty sure they must have hired an actual chef to run the kitchen as the food is such high quality and appealing to the eye. This place is a for sure have to check out if your in town. Delta is right on the border of surrey and in the lower mainland about 20 mins from Vancouver. Worth checking. Out if your anywhere in the area to be honest. Also on Sunday's they have half price menu. They do this to draw people in. It works! What happens is people come in on Sunday's the food is so good that they can't wait until next Sunday. And go back during the week and spend full price lol. Anyhow like I said before it's a must try! The other reviews are old on here so don't trust them trust me lol. When you go and love it as much as I do make sure to leave a review so that others go too. I don't want this place to ever shut down for a lack of customers. Then where would I get a yummy beef dip?
