Metro Vancouver Restaurant Reviews
Starbucks7380 King George Highway, #800, Surrey
Favourite local hangout.
By MJ16 of Surrey , B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, April 14, 2017 - 8:20am [Dine in]

I go to this Starbucks every day and have for the last three years. The baristas there are friendly and efficient, and know our orders by heart. They always greet us with smiling faces.

My partner said he didn't like Starbucks but I persuaded him to go and now its his favorite coffee place. He likes it better than his local coffee place which roasts their own beans because at Starbuck's the coffee always turns out exactly the same. He likes a Mocha with 3 shots of dark chocolate. He used to drink a Tuxedo (dark and white chocolate mix) but a barista let him taste the chocolates, and he realized the white was too sweet and he just wanted the dark. He also prefers Starbucks because they always get his drink 190 degrees, and when he orders it hot at his other coffee house, they sometimes get it hot enough and sometimes don't.

I love this store, and everyone in it. MJ16

Great Italian Restaurant at a AWESOME price!
By vancouverpiggie of burnaby (54 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, April 9, 2017 - 12:44am [Dine in]

This is probably one of the best bang for your buck italian restaurants in all of the greater vancouver regional district.

It's location is great - gas town.

It's price is very good when you factor in the freshness of the ingredients, taste and huge portions.

We came here tonight, party of 2.

The place is set up like a small, cozy brick cafe with a huge kitchen in the back due to the place also catering.

I assume because they cater, that allows them to provide fresh ingredients. Cheaper to buy in quantity.

This does not mean taste was sacrificed.

Everything is made IN HOUSE.

We ordered Gnocchi with Rustica Sauce, 3-kinds Ravioli (Mushroom, Spinach and Chicken) with Carbonara Sauce, Mixed Salad and Bean Vegetable Soup and ended the night with a chocolate brownie cake and tiramisu.

Gnocchi was chewie, great texture and fresh. The Rustica sauce was very flavorful, seasoned very well.

3-Kinds Ravioli was also very good, nothing much to say except very fresh and tasty.

The mixed salad was a delight. Most times, when you order mixed salads, it's just a few sad looking pieces of mixed leafy greens. This place tops it with cheese, long beans, cherry tomatos, roma tomatoes, asparagus - it's a party on a plate.

The bean soup was nice and thick - more like a hearty stew.

All this for only 67.00 and we had to pack up some stuff because we couldn't finish it all.

The waitresses are also super friendly and cute :)

Will be returning.

We ordered a 50th birthday chocolate cake but received a bland, 'milk chcolate,' buttery, salty, coffee tastingc cake...
By TrinityB of Vancovuer BC Canada (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, April 7, 2017 - 3:37pm [Dine in]

Unfortunately, the cake was terrible. It was for a 50th birthday (very special opportunity); we went there because we had been referred and our normal baker (Fratelli's) was away on holidays. We felt very disappointed in the cake, the service from head office staff and then the owner, afterward. It was bland, didn't taste like chocolate. It tasted more like butter, salt and a little bit of coffee. When we complained they justified it by saying they use milk chocolate, not dark chocolate, butter has salt in it and asked us if we were Chinese (?)...said they hadn't had a complaint in 41 years. So, apparently the take away is, if we were Chinese we would have been happy. We asked for our money back because we would never return and they said no.

Well, there's no more Pho Hoang. I really miss it! They made the best Bun Bo Hue in Metro Vancouver and they always had the best portions for your pho and very delicious soup! I always feel full after eating there! Now this new restaurant is overpriced for Vietnamese food, their portions are small, and the quality is average. The only thing they have going for them are the restaurant decor and their fantastic service! Hopefully, they can survive with that!

I tried this restaurant because I was in the area yesterday. It was the same as any other Vietnamese restaurants such as same portions and their soup were average. The only thing I didn't understand is why they charge $1 for extra bean sprouts when other Vietnamese restaurants do not? Other than that, nothing special.

Overpriced pho
By chopcritic of Vancouver (8 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, April 3, 2017 - 9:26am [Dine in]

I heard some great reviews from a friend, so I decided to try it. But when I looked at their menu, their Pho's were completely overpriced for Vietnamese food! Maybe the locals in Kerrisdale would pay for this price, but people from other areas would flinch. Who would pay for a large Pho which is $2 more than a small Pho? Other Vietnamese restaurants would charge $0.5 to $1, but I have never seen $2 more for a large! When I received my large Pho expecting to be something special, all I find are the portions are the same as a small which I saw someone eating on the next table and just more SOUP! And the flavours of their pho soup are just borderline average. I can eat at any other Pho restaurants for far less a price and eat the same type of Pho. Just so you know a small is $9 and large $11. So disappointing!

Amazing Every Time!

Submitted Wednesday, March 29, 2017 - 3:15pm [Dine in]

I order from Niagara every week, and I always have amazing service.

Once I was told it was busy and I'd get my order in an hour - and it arrived in 45 minutes! The driver was very friendly and so were the girls over the phone. I like how they're very honest when delivery or pick up will take a while! The food never has disappointed me and I always try new things. My favorites are the everything pizza, the lamb souvlaki and the steak and garlic prawns!

Heres a tip - if you want to go and get something most places don't offer anymore, go on a weekend! They have their salad bar on! It's sooo good!

Overall a 10/10, go there if you want a nice night out with your S/O or even a family trip!

Worst pizza ever and miserable staff
By cigar06 of vancouver (14 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, March 24, 2017 - 8:34pm [Take-out]

I went there only because I had a groupon. What a mistake. The pizza is subpar on every measure. It smelled and tasted bad. When I went the guy told me I could only have 2 toppings. I had to point out that the groupon was for any feast pizza XL. He grumbled and agreed. Wow a for a few slices of mushroom he grumbles at his customers!! If he doesn't like the Groupon deal then why did he sign on??? The cheese does not seem real, the sauce was not at all sweet and tasty. It seemed bitter and off. The few slices of mushroom were so thin they were not noticeable. The few green pepper bits were not nicely chopped and tasted bitter. I think they don't bother to trim the green pepper properly. The crust was tasteless and lifeless. We ended up throwing most of it out. Pizza is supposed to be fun and delicious!!! Maybe it's just this location. I won't waste my money or appetite to find out.

Not inexpensive but worth the extra cost
By Nighthawk of Delta [Ladner] (22 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, March 16, 2017 - 5:27pm [Dine in]

The place is not cheap but for a non-Jewish guy who has lived in Montreal and Toronto and as well spent time in NYC I have found the food outstanding from deli to baked goods.

And actually, I love the service; the management is not only friendly and of great assistance but also highly intelligent. Do I wish the cost of a meal were a little less expensive? Absolutely......but I love the place and I am willing to pay bit more for quality and service as well as to support a business owned by people whom I understand are worth my patronage.

The place is well decorated and the view is great, but the establishment isn't anything great beyond that.

The service was quite slow, and the food took a considerable time to arrive on what appeared to be a fairly average night (The place was about half full). For pub food, it was a bit below par, for food in general, it was quite mediocre.

Last time, when I was having lunch in pho Hoa, i saw a rat under my seat. I noticed the Waitor by that time, but he had ignored me. After that I saw inspectors came to Pho hoa. So I guess that wasn't 1st time had rats in store.
Today, when I drive by pho Hoa, I saw the store is closed , I think they were suspended by the city for hygiene reason.
But they have lie to us, that the store under renovation. I would never go back there again. So scary to eat w rats. PHO RAT!!!

The service used to be very good, but not so much now. The pastries are as good as any in the city, but I'm not willing to stand around and wait when I can go across the street and get really good service at Transylvania, which has a different but equally good selection. I wonder what happened, the staff seems to have changed.

Hmmmm........I wonder if people wash their hands???

I was craving a Peanut Buster Parfait.....went to the one on Kingsway on my way back home.....I usually go to the one in N. BBy carlton square?

Seems like a nice cozy place when I went inside....saw a man at the cashier first...then he went into the back and it looks very dark...not enough light....needs to be brighter....then I was thinking about getting chicken fingers with fries to go also....but I do not trust if the man or whoever is in the back washed their hands after handling the money.....and money is very very dirty....

The lady that took over....do not know if it was the wife....very pleasant and she knew what she was doing....efficient.....
when I got home I put the parfait in the freezer because I then wanted to eat a sandwich first....it wasn't as good as I remembered whenever I get this dessert....

Just I hope they put more light so its nice and bright and wash wash wash those hands.....please!!!!!!!!!!
Show the people what you did....put a small sink in the front for the employees.....I think they were the owners for this franchise.....

Good Pizza but......
By maggiemia of East Vancouver, BC (27 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, March 5, 2017 - 10:23pm [Dine in]

this was my second time coming to this place....the pizza is good but I always look up at the cooks...just in the front there where they are making pizza only...the kitchen you can not see...its a very small small place and I think it opens at 5pm and we went on a Tues. nite....four of us...
so no long line up...just beware of this...long line ups....

I looked at the two guys making the pizza and saw the one guy touch his nose as if he wanted to clean it or pick it.......only stating what I see....and I hope they read this comment so they don't do it again. I think he had dark hair and beard....? It was in February that we went.

I do not usually trust people in restaurants at all....especially Asians.... me being Italian born here.....they are some Italians that are dirty also.....but do not trust people and friends at home....I am a little ocd....but sometimes as you know you have to close one eye....

the pasta that nite was awful...too much al dente...and not enough sauce at all...too dry....
the salad was too big for the plate and bacon on it....the appie with the cold cuts was ok....you want antipasto then probable go to the true Italian restaurants like L'Artista...mind you its been a while....I really miss Al Forno in Gastown years back....so good....the pizza brick oven like now....but I tell ya....it was the Best in those days in Vancouver.

I don't believe in tipping and I do tip...I am not cheap but I just don't believe in it too much....I think its like a another meal there......from $10 and up....
I was reading some of my old comments and Moulin Rouge Rest. did close down...thank God and Cheers is gone....the Sweet Cherubim has changed their menu I believe, so its easier to read.

Too bad that Dine Here does not have just comments sections....
All in All Via Tevere is a good place for food....I only recommend the Pizza.....its the same dough I believe that Famoso, Lombardo's, Marcello's and all these new places for pizza brick oven style uses....type 00 flour from Naples....
I just hope the rest. reads this and tells the people behind the counter not to touch themselves and put cameras in the kitchen so the owners can see what goes on....if the staff are being dirty!!!! This goes for all the Resturants!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Meh
By EatsFats of Vancouver (322 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, March 4, 2017 - 9:36am [Dine in]

Apparently the place to go for handmade soba noodles. You gotta be aware, make a reservation. Early, like maybe even week in advance, else you will never get in.

Nice cozy little place, no complaints.
Service, well, they wait staff is quite attentive and responsive. Friendly too, not much I can complain about that aspect. But it's sloooooow. I saw a few other tables around us who had gotten there around sametime or even a bit earlier. We all left around the same time as well and the total meal time was going over 2 hours, and it's not like there was a constant stream of dishes. You get one, then you wait...then another tiny dish then you wait...some types of food and restaurant are amenable to this type of dragged out meal (which can be quite enjoyable), but not here.

Now the food, well, no complaints about the quality of the ingredients in general, but the execution was not mindblowing by any measure. We had a bit of everything.
Some grilled/seared fish was pretty much same as I could get anywhere else. They had sushi (who goes there for sushi?) which generally got good reviews from our table, but it was inconsistent. We had 2 orders and they weren't prepared the same, one piece had WAY too much ginger on it and completely overpowered the bland fish. We also had a grilled fish head/neck (hamachi if I recall), but that was a miss, very large but it was definitely on the fishy side. Ordered an udon as well which was quite good but ... I don't think it was udon, more like somen. And the soba? Well you could definitely taste that it was different. The different broths provided were good, no complaints. But is the handmade soba better? Hmmm... I think the jury is out on this one. (We have been to some fine, fine soba place in Tokyo).
The desert, we had a sampling of the pudding, jelly and ice cream+ganache. It was ok, definitely enjoyable, but really, with Thomas Haas down the street and numerous other dessert places nearby you got to be really different or really good.

Total cost came out to around $50 a person or so, no drinks. Given the long wait, need to reserve and nothing particularly outstanding and being rather pricey, I think I will likely give it a pass for next time.
It is good quality and clearly they have some regulars, but maybe that's due to lack of competition in the neighbourhood rather than people traipsing out here from across town.
