I went to Santa Rosa and was quite surprised to find that it is also a restaurant. I thought it was a tortilla making business only. To my surprise, they are a Mexican Restaurant too and from the looks of it, very popular with the business people in the area.
Great place for fresh, authentic Mexican food! Great tortillas!
Went to this new restaurant on Saturday night and it was good. Food has lots of local ingridents. Drinks were excellent. Service was also very good. I know there are lots of choices to try when you are in Gastown but i would try this restaurant again. The decor is also nice and nice relaxing music playing in the background. The portions are not hugh so some people may find it a bit pricy. Parking is also difficult in the area.
My friend and I dropped in for dinner last night. The room itself is nice looking but the way the entrance door is setup, a gust of cold wind entered the place anytime someone entered.
The menu is not extensive but what we had was well made and presented. My companion had the Ling Cod and I had the Beef Short Ribs. The flavours were well balanced and tasty, properly seasoned and presented. The portions were appropriate for the price.
The issue I had there was that although the room is setup mostly as a restaurant, the staff and ambiance tilt more towards a bar. The music was mostly current or "classic" rock, which is fine for a bar...but if you are actually trying to have a dinner and talk, it was a bit much.
The service was OK, but the server did not know very much about the menu and had to go to the kitchen a couple of times to answer a couple of our questions. The servers were all very friendly but the level of professionalism was definitely lacking.
If you are looking for some upscale bar food later in the evening, then this may be OK, but I would go next door to Glowball for a dinner before going back to West Oak again.
Very good Pho noodle soup, and chicken. The owner will remember you after a few times and is more friendly after that. Avoid this place from 11:45am-12:30pm Mon-Fri. They get the high school crowd in at that time and it gets crazy in there. My last time there, I waited for 35 minutes to get my Pho even though I was the second customer in the restaurant. It was the only time I waited even more than 10 min, but on this day the owner chose to get all of the high school students fed before making my order. Haven't returned since in principal, but I do miss the food.
Quaint little place with good portions of decent Pho. My family does have other Pho places that they prefer, but this one is close to our home and never disappoints. Owner takes a bit of warming up but once he gets to know you, he remembers your preferences. Give it a try for a nice meal.
Our server was extremely good. She was always smiling, attentive, and made us feel welcome. The food was pretty good, but so expensive. For one burger, a chicken sandwich, pulled pork poutine, one pop, and 9oz glass of white wine our bill was $65 including tip. Ouch!!! We could go to the Keg for that price. For that reason alone, we will not be returning.
One of my absolute favorite burger joints to frequent. A little burger is single patty and regular burger is double patty - can get cheese and bacon too. Choose from the array of fresh topping FREE.....including fried onions, sauteed mushrooms, bbq sauce, hot sauce, jalapenos, etc.
A regular fry is enough to feed 2-3 hungry people. I highly recommend the cajun fries too. A bit of spice to them and so so good.
Do your self a favour and try this place. Kudos to the filipino guy employee who is always super friendly and typically walks around to make sure everything is satisfactory.
My family has eaten here at least 40 times since they opened this location a year or so ago. I have only had one issue where my bun was really hard on one area (not sure if stale or from heat that it dried) and it appeared that it was picked at by someone to try to remove the dry area. I was quite disappointed but didn't bother bringing it back up as I am sure they would have made me a fresh one asap.
The best humous ever!! I love their chicken rice platter with double humous and no greek salad. Glad they added the sriracha chli sauce instead of the bland tomato "hot sauce" the always have.
The service at any of theses places has never been that great, but the new younger late teens girl that now works there some times of very pleasant and nice.
If I had a choice, I would certainly go to the Poco location as the same order is cheaper and a bit better.
Great big juicy burgers with great selection of toppings!! I really like the Five Guys burger a lot too but it is like comparing apples to oranges. Been back twice in 3 days!! Even their chicken burger is big and tasty (hate a bite of my wife's burger) This is my 13 yr old son's favorite burger now.
Started off with the ride up the tram filled with loud ski/snowboarders hitting you in the head with their boards and skis packed in like sardines.
Do not bother with this place there are many other better restaurants for a fraction of the price.
The fact hat we found a hair in our appetizer was not a good start.
Our Mains were cold and no flavor, definitely expected much more for those prices.
No view as it was overcast and the table of eight with two babies crying did not help.
Largest markup on wine I have ever seen, so called Sommelier needs to relax, 300% markup is ridiculous.
By the way there is no dress code as it says on their website, there were ski/snowboarders in their snow gear all around us.
Do not waist your time with this place.
It used to be a treat to dash in to Fukuroku for a quick bite before grocery shopping but I have to say it's gone downhill.
The Noodle Set is lots of food for the price but not such a bargain when you leave a third of it uneaten. The tempura is very oily and the prawns seem to be split into slivers - I don't mind halves but they seem to be able to slice them even thinner. The chicken teriyaki tastes like it was (under)cooked earlier in the day and is reheated to order. The skin is slimy and the tepid sauce does nothing to disguise the not-too-fresh taste of the chicken. The California rolls are tasty and fresh.
One thing I hate is to see staff eating on the job. Tonight I noticed the counter-lady scarfing down a bowl of rice and something between customers, removing bits from her mouth with her fingers. When it got busy she put the bowl down and continued to serve food and take money without washing her hands. Ick.
I wen to this place over a year ago and I thought I wrote a review but can't find it. Either deleted or forgot to submit one.
We were here for dinner ... never been here ... always see a line up ... people saying how cheap it is!
That it is!! Cheap!! The calamari is not calamari. The Roast Lamb was very, very fatty. Rice and potato was cold.
Our server seemed nice at the beginning but as the meal progressed ... he got ruder and ruder each time he came back.
So NO ... not going back ... not worth my money ... will never wait in the long line up again ... no ... no ... NO!
We went to the MR White Spot and got weak service and they mixed up our order, which happens as we are all humans and subject to making mistakes. The overall experience and food was disappointing but maybe others enjoyed it. Nat Bailey started up the business and his standards are sometimes missed as we experienced similar in a Burnaby location years ago.
Where can you find a beefy filling sandwich for less than $5, very few places. Inno bakery sandwiches come in a variety of flavours: montreal smoked meat, turkey and chicken and others. Sink your chompers into one of their sandwiches that fills most appetites and it is especially nice when they are grilled. We go their often and have never been disappointed but their bakery goods are quite pricey. Check them out when you're in Poco....
I have been going to this place pretty regular every time I am in Langley. The special rolls that Sushi Chef Alex makes are too good to miss. The Volcano roll with salmon, The Happy Mango roll with salmon, the beef teryaki, the bento boxes with sashimi, I have tried a lot of the menu and have never had a dissapointment.
The restaurant is impeccably clean and the service is efficient and friendly. It is good to see they just won the Best of the Best Sushi Award in Langley. Congratulations ! you will see me again very soon.
Fresh Slice Pizza has a friendly staff and their pizza's are fair priced and its nice to have a thin crust. Good value, why not return? The sauces on the pizza's also gives your mouth an explosion of flavors whether you bite into the chicken, beef or veggie pizzas.
This place is a good burger joint with an American-style ambience. The free peanuts fill you up and the prices are affordable. We went several times within a few weeks and got quickly bored and never returned but the food was good. Its a family place where you can hang your hat. Try it out....our clothes smelled oily because of the ventilation of the restaurant that could have been better but it's still a good place to check out....

We sometimes go to Costco just to hit the food bar to eat chicken strips, montreal sandwiches, poutine, hot dogs at an affordable price. It is a busy place all the time but three can eat for less than $17.00. The hot dogs are beefy in size and who can find a better price for hotdogs/pop combinations? You don't go home hungry, unlike other places, so why not come back for more?

My family went to the Coquitlam Keg for the first time to celebrate our son's high marks in high school and to also enjoy Valentine's Day in 2014. An instant hit with us, we'll be back. The food is quite pricey but it is well plated, good portions and very hot. Nice atmosphere, it gets thumbs up and the waitress was attentive, friendly and on top of her game, great service.
My husband and I visited Vancouver recently from Edmonton, we decided to go to Kobe for dinner as we never had before. So much fun! The show was great and so was the food, seafood in Vancouver is so much better than Edmonton. The portions were huge, we both practically rolled out of the restaurant. I'm looking forward to going back to Kobe again the next time we visit Vancouver.
