Metro Vancouver Restaurant Reviews
Slice of Chicago5812 Fraser Street, Vancouver
New Pizza Delight
By lucyca of burnaby and vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, November 17, 2015 - 6:00pm [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 - 3:52pm [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.

Basil Pasta Bar636 Davie Street, Vancouver
Create your own pasta?
By jonesh19 of East Van (11 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, November 16, 2015 - 3:40pm [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.

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 (3 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, November 15, 2015 - 4:19pm [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 !!

Worst Service ever Received
By em.murphy of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, November 10, 2015 - 8:24pm [Dine in]

This is probably the worst service I have ever received. I went with 3 friends and they would only speak Cantonese to us, which luckily one of my friends could speak Cantonese. When I asked for water they completely ignored me and would only talk to my friend who could speak Cantonese. We asked for sauce and water which took them 30 minutes and they only came back with one sauce for all of us, I asked for more, and he replied that I was greedy. The food took forever to get and they forgot some of the things which we still ended up paying for. When I asked for more water he replied to me in English " I don't give service in English and you've had enough water." Me and my friend each gave a 5% tip and the women spit on us and told us we were stupid and we weren't gonna go far in life. Also the bathrooms smelled atrocious and were disgustingly dirty. If you are a tourist please don't go there! I don't want anyone to suffer this experience. Also food was sub-par.

We were here over the last few weekends, and all I can say is that it was a massive disappointment. Horizons went from being not very good, to very good, back to horrific. To give you an idea, 4 people chose 4 different dishes.....three of them meat dishes, and one seafood. the lamb was awful and rubbery, the red meat dishes tasted like "something" and could not be finished, and the seafood sabelfish tasted like it came with a cambells soup recipe... my guests were too polite, but the looks in their faces said it all. Service was great but .....

Not sure whats going here, but I can assure you that we will not be back until massive changes take place again, as there are way too many great establishments out there to be enjoyed.......

Kisamos Greek Taverna3420 Moncton Street, Richmond
Outstanding Food
By diner40 of Vancouver (95 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, November 10, 2015 - 9:54am [Dine in]

Visited here this Sunday past. We were greeted immediately and shown to a table. I remember last time I was here I ordered the snapper, it was outstanding so I opted for this dish once again.
I was not to be disappointed. A delicious , flavorful meal. A rather large portion of fish, tender and absolutely what I remember from before. I love this dish.

The fish came with a generous portion of Greek rice, a nicely cooked Greek potato and some green beans cooked in this fantastic tomato sauce. I am not usually a huge green bean fan but the way they cook these almost have me asking for the recipe.

The service is very solid. Not obtrusive but rather friendly and efficient. In my opinion this is one of my favorite Greek restaurants in the area. Can't wait for my next visit and more of that snapper.

Hot Pot Legend3779 Sexsmith Road, #1123, Richmond
Owner Operator with a Filthy Mouth
By calbee219 of Yaletown (15 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, November 6, 2015 - 11:03pm [Dine in]

We had a total of 4 people and opted for the AYCE dinner, and each of us also had a beer to go with our meal. In total, our bill came to just over $120, excluding tip. The quality of food was cringe worthy, and the service is by far, one of the worst experiences that I have ever experienced. The reasons are as follows:

1. Very poor food quality. Especially the beef, which had texture and flavour akin to tough leather. The seaweed had a lot of sand on it.

2. It took nearly 15 minutes for the server to come pick up the sheet of paper marked with the items that we wanted to eat. The major aspect though, it that the owner/server literally yelled and used profanity (he told us to f*** off) after he discovered that the tip we left was not to his liking. The owner loudly yelled absurd and offensive things (even made it personal by bringing my children into it) as we were leaving the restaurant, a time when there were still a few tables left in the restaurant. Needless to say, everyone heard and stopped their meal to watch the event unfold.

3. Aside from the items we ordered from the all you can eat menu, we had to ask for the extra items we ordered, such as beer and sauces, despite clearly marking it on the sheet they have for customers to fill out (they charge for sauces and condiments such as green onion, garlic, satay sauce, chili, etc.). We shouldn’t have to ask for our beer, which should have arrived before any food.

4. The hot pot stove/equipment are very simple, portable, and what one would use at home when it’s just a couple of people. For a table of four, this is not sufficient to keep the water hot over the entire course of our dinner, especially when thicker cuts of meat like beef tendon is added to the hotpot.

5. The order in which the food came out was questionable, as they brought out one dish at a time. So, it would only be a plate of meat at once, a plate of seafood, or a basket of vegetables at any given time. These practices are questionable as I felt that we did not truly experience the essence of what hot pot should be – a myriad of different proteins and veggies, and you cook and consume as you ate.

Please understand that I typically tip well. Circumstances when I leave less than 10% is only when the service is terrible (say a score of less than 3 on a scale from 1 to 10). If I had a customer who left us a small tip, I would reflect, and inquire as to why that is, in order to make adjustments or amends. Customer feedback is crucial if you are to survive in this industry.

Only come visit if you want to consume food of poor quality, and in the mood to be yelled at and given attitude from the owner himself.

Sushi $1.99 To Go20159 88 Avenue, #102D, Langley
Best value for Sushi in Walnut Grove

Tucked into a small strip mall storefront is this gem of a Sushi restaurant. Focused primarily on takeout, with optional limited counter seating inside, the warm and charm of this independently owned business is an affordable experience to remember.

Great value for what you pay for and $10 easily fills you up. Hot tea available in the restaurant waiting area while you wait for your FRESHLY MADE sushi.

Warm and friendly environment with a smiling Sushi Chef rounds out the overall fantastic experience.

Repeat customer.

All you need to do is click on the inspection reports icon. Looking into the kitchen myself, I found it to be the worst thing I had seen...and I have eaten in some pretty dodgy places! The service is slow and unfriendly. This place used to be great, but sadly it has gone to the dogs. I had ordered a variety of items on the menu and found that not a single one was worth consuming. Whatever ambiance this place had a few years back, is no longer here. Unwelcoming, rude and gross are about the only things that come to mind. Such a shame!

I went there with my gf and her folks got some good Indian on Davie as we heard!! Big big mistake as the food was the crappiest Indian an Indian can eat!! The samosas were unsalted and bland and the prawn killed a was soggy over cooked prawns
And cold! SURPRISING!

The main course which included a chicken dish, lamb and fish were just BAD. I was so disappointed that I did tell the server and he was so rude about it (said go somewhere else) inspite of the whole place being empty the people were not accommodating (no wonder it was empty)!!

Bad overpriced and under serviced food! Please never go!!

The dining area is pretty basic, our table was missing condiments, but it is clean and comfortable enough.

I've been here many times but hadn't been back for awhile since moving out of the area.

Regardless, the staff are still, as always, friendly, courteous, patient, and quick. The food was delicious (curry fish, spicy dumplings, a veg dish) and rolled out quickly. The price is reasonable (lunch special $7.95 for a large plate and bowl of rice).

I love Green Lettuce!

Ate here I. The summer not long after it first opened. My friend and I had veggie burgers with fries and yam fries. The fries were fine. The burgers crumbled as we ate; they were unique for sure, made of what we thought was quinoa, but the things just fell apart and tasted b-l-a-n-d. And the price for two meals was absolutely ridiculous. We waited 10 minutes for them to put this slop together. Every time we pass Relish now we laugh about their horrible, overpriced veggie burgers.

Submitted Tuesday, November 3, 2015 - 7:29am [Dine in]

I've been here 4 times, twice to eat in. The last time I went was Saturday Oct 31,2015. Had a chicken burrito, friend had sofritas burrito. The two staff making the food were not friendly and didn't seem happy to be there. The cashier was also not a pleasant individual. It wasn't busy (maybe 1/2 the seating was taken) and the lineup was only about 4-5 people long. Usually I've gone in and the place is packed, lineup to the door or out the door.

I'm not a Chipotle burrito lover, I'd rather Steamrollers or Red Burrito, plus I find the price at Chipotle to be high and the servings too big.

My main beef this time was the absolute FILTH of the dining area. The garbage: overflowing. The floor, tables, even the SEATS had garbage strewn everywhere.

A staff member sat next to us (in uniform) to eat with his friend who placed a knapsack on the floor. A bottle in the knapsack started leaking to the point that my friend told him there was a huge puddle under it. I mean huge=a 3 ft wide puddle. The friend of the staff member said to him, 'maybe u better get that cleaned up' or something and the staff said his shift was over anyway.

When we left, the puddle was still there.

One staff person did a quick garbage sweep of some tables while we were there but overall, the restaurant was still a pig sty.

Management: happy employees do a better job and treat customers with kindness. Hire more staff or re-organize them. The place is a dump.
