Submitted Friday, May 15, 2015 - 5:16am [Take-out]

I ordered biryani, coconut chicken curry and the appy sampler online (10% was taken off the bill) before the dinner rush. I went down to pick up everything within 25 minutes and it was all ready for me. The food was still hot when I got home and then began to eat ... so delicious! Great flavour, fresh ingredients. I was not disappointed at all!

Okonomi Sushi620 6th Street, New Westminster
Renovated dining area and much better food quality!
By doughgirl of New Westminster (40 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, May 14, 2015 - 6:57pm [Dine in]

My husband & I live across the street from this restaurant and over the past couple months we would hear construction sounds at the restaurant in the late evenings. We wondered what was going on and today we discovered the new and improved "Okonomi".
We stopped eating there years ago because service was very poor (long wait time for order) and food quality was barely enjoyable.
We have at eaten at several different sushi restaurants in the Lower Mainland and this restaurant & location has gone from being one of our most disappointing experiences to one of our most pleasantly surprising!
Tonight we selected item 79. BENTO BOX B, 152. PORK KATSU, and 20. MAPLE ROLL (which is offered spicy, but we asked for unspicy).
We decide if a sushi restaurant is good based on the quality and presentation of its raw fish. The fish in the 'complete meal' and roll was so creamy and fresh. Rice portion used to be almost grotesquely out of proportion to the rest of the food at this restaurant, but instead it was neat & tidy in its place - there to support the other items, not be the star attraction.
And putting up with the sound of a saw at 10 o'clock at night was so worth being able to sit at one of the elegant & private booths that replaced the once school cafeteria style tables.
Good job!

We brought two friends and had five fantastic dishes.
The vegetable dish done just right, with a perfect amount of crunch in the beans and asparagus, and the mushrooms were nutty and flavourful.
The crispy ginger beef had just the right crunch and spiciness.
The seafood hot pot was sizzling when it arrived, so a delightful presentation.
I loved the fried tofu wedges. I'm sure I ate more than my share.
Our server, Debbie, was friendly and helpful.
This was good value for a reasonable price.

Submitted Wednesday, May 13, 2015 - 7:06pm [Dine in]

I usually never go to a different starbucks other than the one outside the foodcourt at guildford mall.. But i was in the area and decided to drop by for my chai latte. There was only 3 people infront of me and i waited almost half an hour for my drink. There was only one girl making the drink and all of the coworkets were so bad and lazy. they just stood around and talked. Throwing paper and pens around at other coworkers. Waited super super long for my drink and when i finaly got it she made the wrong order. She made a caramel macciato. After waiting another 5 mins for her to recorrect my order looking around they had a few staffs on hand and none of them did anything useful. Some of the people waiting infront of me for their drinks waited so long they got tired and had to sit. I dont see why it would take ao damn long to get a simple drink. Worst service EVER!! And it took so damn long. Never coming back. they made all the other starbucks look great thats for sure. I only wait 5-10 mins for my frap during happy hour too and there were many people infront. I would probably wait 2 hours for my drink if i went there. My god. Shitty ass service. Dont ever go there. Wasnt the first time i had bad experience there too. They need a manager. Asap.

It's a tradition Japanese restaurant. The staff if fabulous. And the chefs are great. Food is ALWAYS very tasty, and cooked to great!
What a great time out! Myself and our friends daughter had the Sushi Dinner and it was fresh and presented so professional. This place we closed down and we had the owner visiting with us and telling jokes all the wait staff was friendly kind and very accommodating.

Went there on a Sunday evening, and it wasn't very busy. There was one large group of 8, our party of 6, and 3 other small tables of 2. The waitresses were friendly enough, but the food took way too long to come. I waited about 20 mins for my bowl of pho, and 2 other people in our party didn't receive their rice dishes until almost 30 mins after we ordered. One person ordered 2 sandwiches...one was served and eaten before the other sandwich showed up. The food was also very greasy. The soup broth was swimming in oil, and so heavy I had a hard time finishing it, despite being hungry. They did not serve me bean sprouts, so I had to ask for it. We've eaten at many Vietnamese places and this is the worst. Event thought it cheeps but unrecommended due to food is horrible and 1 time I see hair in the bow of pho.

It was a joy for us eat at this asian restaurant. It was a relief from the day before ! Pho and special grill lemons grass chicken on rice. It was so good that we had to order special grill lemons grass chicken on rice for our daughter.

The place is huge and service was good. People have to understand that those people that work here speak English as their second language. Or I noticed that the old ladies were Chinese speaking and don't understand English. I totally understand their predicament.

This restaurant is good for gathering, family, friends and couple as well. Between each area or table they set partitions so that we feel warming and privacy.

I give this place a for the yummy food, cleanliness (5 star since the toilet was a plain to flush) and ❤️ for their service.

Highly recommended!

Lana's chili con carne is made from fresh ingredients and I always get a bowl. One day I will have to try their soups. My girlfriend really likes their breakfast wrap. Every espresso shot is timed to make sure it is perfect. The latte temperature is measured with a thermometer.

A friendly server cannot make-up for the mediocre food and service
By shutupandeat of Vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, May 11, 2015 - 11:25am [Dine in]

We dined here after a ball game.
BP's are a franchise, but I must say the steady decline of the BP quality and service over the years makes me ask why I return and then kick myself for returning.

The Server was nice and friendly, but making us wait 5+ minutes to serve our drinks, then take our order, then finally getting up to leave and request our bill was painful. Chicken wings and pan pizza took almost 20 minutes and the restaurant was empty.

Maybe the chef was busy out back having their smoke break? I've seen it before.

The food has been mediocre for years, but the big TV's is a draw to watch the hockey, etc...

REMIND me not to go back to BP for a while. Please.

MIND-BLOWING - Chinese Restaurant
By shutupandeat of Vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, May 11, 2015 - 11:19am [Dine in]

Took the family for Mother's Day Dim Sum. First time here, apparently it was called Grand Buffet before.

My mind is still blown right now - jaw dropping for Lee Garden. For the following reasons:

1. Clean bathrooms - unheard of in Chinese Restaurants (need I say more?)
2. Spacious seating and walking area (lot of comfortable seating and just made the meal enjoyable).
3. Chinese restaurant with actual Chinese ambiance. Nice modern decore, gone are the menus written on white sheets of paper only in English.
4. Waiting area is situated away from the dining area. You don't have to experience the noisy hordes of people waiting for a table as you dine comfortably.

The dim sum was pricier than most, but I'm willing to pay more and have an enjoyable meal. No rush,

I would definitely go back with friends & family.

I like the sushi here. Higher end, and slightly higher priced than your average tuna and salmon bulk sushi shops, but fair value. I won't put it on my recommended list though as service is very slow. On our last take out order, had to wait 30 mins past pick up time. This is not the first time, but a consistent issue with Sushi Bella - both take out and dine in. The kitchen simply is not mature enough to manage their workload. My visits here are becoming fewer and far between. The sushi is good, but not good enough to justify the slow service.

Submitted Sunday, May 10, 2015 - 12:49pm [Take-out]

We were looking for some place different to take my mother-in-law for dinner for Mother's Day. We began looking and found Indian Affair. Thankfully we made a reso ahead of time on a Saturday night as it was busy both in the seating of the restaurant and the takeout offers.

We ordered the rice with peas, garlic family size nan bread, chicken tikka masala, okra masala, aloo gobi and prawn vindaloo. After ordering we received complementary popadum. Everything arrived together and the flavour was yummy. We asked for medium to hot and found that we could easily add additional hot-sauce to it. The portion size was good and with 5 people eating there was enough to take leftover.

All staff we encountered were every friendly. I rated the service 3 only because we found we had to flag the servers down to have water refills and ask for other things. This could have been since they were busy.

We would gladly return here in the future, hopefully for the buffet. This restaurant has on-line coupons. Just print them off and bring with with you. We used a $8.00 when you spend $40.

The Cat and Fiddle is an awesome pub. The location was very easy to find, I like the setting of the pub. It is very spacious. Also how kids can go in the pub which gives it a family atmosphere. The servers were efficient and quick, and the food tasted amazing. I had a great night, and would go back again.

Our daughter chose this lovely neighbourhood restaurant for a family celebration. She was thrilled to try the plant-based meals, and we each ordered a different item for brunch. My husband's Vegetable Hash was a bland medley of stuff of the same color: chick peas, potatoes, and ???--it tasted earthy like beets. There was no attempt to break the monotony of yellow. He felt the dish was like eating one big curried potato. Other than his plate, our meals were attractive. None of our food was hot, just lukewarm. The textures and flavours did not work well together either. The dressings were acidic, and the food tough. Tough kale, tough tofu, tough bennie biscuit. The food has left one of us burping the remainder of the day, skipping the next meal, and seeking the relief from an ant-acid.

By EatsFats of Vancouver (321 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, May 3, 2015 - 7:22am [Dine in]

Relatively clean place, bright, open. Service was friendly enough but they are a tad short staffed.
There is an amazing selection of dosa's and they're really good. Extensive menu with many options. Server told us mild is the default and if you want spicy, you gotta ask, which is great. Could enjoy the food without suffering as happens at some places.
The other dishes we tried were not perfect, some parts of each were fantastic, some meh but everyone enjoyed every dish. Boy oh boy, some of the portions looked quite substantial! No skimping out here. Everything seemed to have been made to order (except the slow cooker curried of course), fresh and not overcooked.

We lasted the day without getting super thirsty or bloated/plugged as many other Indian places.

Highly recommended, we would return again for sure to sample the rest of the menu

Bad food followed by even worse service. I would never go back. Food was sour and tasted sour like it had gone bad. Owners argued and yelled at each other when I asked for the bad food that I didn't eat to be taken off the bill. As I paid for the bill they continued to yell at each other about how I had the audacity to return the food and how they now how to take it off the bill. I will never go here again and advise anyone looking forward to a nice night not to be ruined by the lack of respect for others the shop owners have pls try a different place. Seriously it just ruined our night.

This was one of the worst experience I have ever encountered. Had the won ton soup which was terrible. Very bland and tasteless not to mention it was luke warm. I asked for them to make it hotter and they just put it in the microwave. My friends pad Thai was garbage. Mushy noodles with very little sauce making it bland siracha couldn't even save the flavour not to mention the weird tast kinda like dirty wok not very pleasing!!! Had a few appies aswell and deep fried and bland aswell. 35$ for terrible food come on really wok box!

This little sushi restaurant is located a block away from Willingdon & Lougheed in the busy construction area of Brentwood. There's a dozen or so restaurants in the vicinity and only two or three so-called Japanese restaurants. Sushi Yoi is fairly new and it's clean, with nice ambience. The food wasn't memorable but it was decent. They don't say "Irashaimase!" when you walk in so it's not authentic Japanese. Skytrain is nearby...I'm running out of positive things to say...ah...um...Pita Pit is next door.
