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?
We had a pretty good meal here on Monday with a couple of my co-workers. I am no first-timer here, but what first captivates you of India Bistro is the ambience. Nicely decorated but kind of small, it worked. Where we get seated didn't really matter. Keeping our voices down wasn't really a speciality.
The food is made to perfection each time, I have yet to catch them serving something half-hearted. Portion sizes justify the price. The naan is soft and pillowy, and their chicken dishes are superb. But what really blew us away this time was the rasmalai. Thanks to the persuasion of the waiter, one of my co-workers finally tried it out. His tricks to adding water or milk to make it more edible for others.
Ganache Patisserie is one of those places you can never get bored of because their pastries are so good. Their caramel-chocolat pastry is one of the most delicious things I have tried, even though it has so much chocolate in it (not a big chocolate fan here). And it's not just me, I still feel it still manages to draw a crowd despite being high-priced. I like coming in the mornings when it is not too busy to eat some cake or get some croissants. That, with some fresh coffee, alone can really set your mood and get you going for the day.
We were so happy to find this place, the decor is cute, like in France — the waiters all dressed the part and they were even French. However, everything stopped being cute as soon as we started to (or should I say, tried to) interact with any of the arrogant waiters.
We sat at the bar and ordered drinks and some pomme frites. At one point the bartender made some drinks right in front of us and I tried to talk to him and he just contradicted what I said — I said, "wow, so close you can almost taste the drink" (the bar was super narrow, so he literally was right where we were) and he said "ah, maybe smell them". No biggy I thought, then I asked him something in French (I lived in France when I was younger, so I speak some French) and of course he immediately answered me in English.
Then when my partner accidentally knocked over his champagne glass (because the bartender had left all of his drink mix stuff right in front of us), he merely came over and said "would you like to order another drink?" Not, oh darn, can I get you another drink or anything.
I also heard the waiters talking and whenever a customer came in and wanted to sit in the window (like we did), they said "no, we have to save it for a table of 4" - but then some wanna-be big shot guy came in with his girlfriend, they let him sit there, even though they didn't know him either.
Anyway, we were very unhappy with the service and or civility with this restaurant. For sure we will not be returning.
My fiancé, friends and I had our first experience at Little Thailand last night and it was amazing!! The food was the most delicious Thai food we have all ever had, everything was made from scratch and was so authentic! I highly recommend trying it out, you won't be disappointed, we will definitely be back soon!!
I don't like this place. I've gone here may be 3 or 4 times. And each time, service was awful.
The food is just ok ... not good ... not great.
But the service ... I couldn't believe how awful it was.
Took forever for them to take our order.
Took even longer to get our bill. And when I went up to pay without the bill, she kept looking at my hand to see if I had the bill. No tea refill. No friendly smile. Awful!!!!
I come for the food. We all know White Spot food tastes the same no matter where we go. I come at least once a week. The service is whatever. But that's not the reason I go there. This location is about 5 minutes away from where I live, there is never a wait at the door, the food comes pretty fast. What more do I need? Once, I saw the manager get really angry at a server and she was on the verge of tears. I felt really bad for the server but who knows what the story was. Like I said, I only go for the food.
I'm not really into Vegan food because it usually tastes like cardboard, but this place definitely knows what they are doing. Maybe it's all the indian herbs and spices they put that give the food flavour. or its the rich chocolaty goodness the baked stuff has. I gave the service a 5, just because the staff is really knowledgeable about their vitamins and doesn't mind when I bombard them with 10 questions at a time. The Ambiance is a 4 because I prefer this joint over Drive Organics next door. This isn't 5 star quality interior we are talking about but it's just that this place feels inviting and warm. Drive Organics just feels a little bit colder. Not that Drive Organics isn't awesome.
I just prefer the vibe at this Cactus over the one on Ash. Maybe it's because I've been to the one on Ash so often over the past few years that I'm just so sick of the location now. I've never had a bad experience at the one on Ash, I just really like the vibe at this location. The interior is nice, not like the typical Cactus locations. The happy hour specials are such a good deal. Love love love the happy hour drink/food specials.
Portions were a good size, the price is like most korean restaurants. I have had better and I have had worse. There's not much to say. The service was good when I went with my friend and both of us are not korean. We didn't feel any discrimination or rudeness like the other reviews have. I will probably go back when I don't feel like going to a Korean BBQ place and smelling like BBQ all day.
Not far from famous Bon's is another restaurant that offers all day breakfast near Broadway and Rupert. Inside, the Green Cafe is clean. bright and tidy with walls, floor and furniture in various shades of green. This apparent family run operation is nice and friendly. $3.00 breakfast is cheap and delicious which consists of your choice of either sausage, bacon or ham with egg (any style), toasted bread and shredded potato hashbrown. On the menu, there are other items such as sandwiches, burgers, noodle soup, chow mein, fried rice, curry meats and appetizers. This small cafe is recommended if you like fast service and affordable food.
Was at the beach with my daughter, son inlaw and 2 grandchildren on a Friday afternoon and suggested we go to Wings for lunch as I had eaten two or three times at the Wings on King Geo. Hwy and had very postive experiences there although it was about 3 years ago. My daughter and I ordered fish and chips. The fish was quite good, the batter was nice and crispy but the fries were limp and the coleslaw was tasteless. My gr.son and his dad ordered burgers and they were edible but nothing to rave about, their fries too were limp. My gr.daughter ordered the beef dip and asked if she could have a cesaer salad instead of fries and the waitress said yes they could do that. According to my gr.daughter the beef dip was gross! I ordered a Long Island Ice Tea that came in a short 8 ounce glass and was more ice then anything else. First time I've had one in a short glass.
The service was very slow. There was only one other couple sitting outside on the patio and our table inside.Once we ordered our food it took about 40 min to come to the table. I wouldn't want to go there when it was busy. There were 3 waitresses. One was taking the orders the other two were cleaning menu's. The cook seemed to be spending time on the phone. The server we had looked quite stunned when we asked what the specials were. She seemed to zone out for a minute before remembering. Actually kind of comical thinking back on it. When we got our bill a $3.00 charge was added for the cesaer salad. When the server was questioned about it she said she assumed we knew the switch would be extra. After a discussion and our asking for the manager the charge was waived. Other places I have been to tell you there is an extra charge when you ask for a switch not "assume" you'd know! The value is over priced for the quality of food you get there.
As to the ambience, there is none. The restaurant seems quite rundown and the washrooms were not very clean. Would we go back, a resounding no from all of us.
Was there today with a few of my friends. One of my friends is a poutine junkie and really wanted to go to this place. I remember this place from commercial drive but didn't remember the food only the owner that appeared to be selling a used car when talking about his food.
As soon as I walked into this place dejavu, it was him again. Our conversation from 5 years ago was no longer was a bad memories but reality. Don't get me wrong he is not a bad guy but there is so much you can hear why his product was amazing and everyone else is bad. After the way we were talking we were expected a food explosion in our mouth instead all we received was an explosion of our wallet.
A small plate of normal poutine was $9. It not too bad but nothing special. The montreal smoked meat was also average but really pricey. I had a sandwich, beer and poutine that came to $35. If I am ever craving smoked meat or poutine I will jump in my car and drive right past this place. Overpriced, average and you leave with a headache listing to the owner. All four of us left the place unsatisfied with no intention of returning.
Have driven by this place many times, and decided today with a friend to come for dinner..... When we came in, we thought the ambiance looked great and were looking forward to a nice dinner.... We werw told we would be seated momentarily..... Time passed about twenty minutes ans no one came..... My friend and I just decided to get up and leave.........
Not recommended..... Will not be back
I have been here before, but it was a friends first time coming here and they wanted to come.
Upon being seated they brought us bread......our waitress came and took our order. I ordered a ceasar salad (for starters) spaghetti carbonara (with added chicken) and my friend got linguine with salmon and some beer. My ceasar salad came and it was $10.50 (for that?) It was on a small plate....I was like "ok....." good, ate it, it was not anything special....(There goes $10) afterwards came our entrees. It did taste pretty good, but portion size seemed to be much smaller than it was last time I came (you know that plate you get at milestones that has chicken appetizers? (wings, chicken bites etc.....) That was what our pasta was on.
But to be fair; the pasta did taste pretty good, but think portions should be bigger.
The service was pretty mediocre......nothing good, but nothing bad ither. The Ambiance was great.
Who knows. I might return; I might not.....who cares
