Metro Vancouver Restaurant Reviews
Rose Thai1425 Marine Drive, #130, West Vancouver
Big Disappointment
By lovesthaifood of West Vancouver (2 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, December 12, 2014 - 9:57am [Dine in]

As the restaurant opened at 11:00am we arrived at 11:55. The owner (Rose, we were told) had still not shown up and there were people waiting. They said she was on her way. It was pouring rain. Ten minutes later she arrived without the keys. Did I mention it was pouring rain? Another 10 minutes go by and the cook shows up with the keys. My friend had an Entertainment Book coupon which Rose would not honour. It was for dinner not lunch - our mistake. Things are not improving. Saying the food was mediocre is a bit of a stretch as the Pad Thai was stodgy (and $10.00!!). The soup was not heated through. The salad looked sad - I didn't eat it. My friend ordered the Red Curry. It was yellow. The appetizer was $4.99 for two spring rolls - they were the smallest spring rolls I had seen. When we went to pay she mentioned the coupon and we thought she was going to honor it as we certainly had to wait for her. Instead, she said, "Your coupon was probably expired anyways." It didn't expire until Dec. 31, 2014 as we told her. Unbelievable!! Will NOT be going back.

We ate here on a cold and rainy December night. We were welcomed immediately at the door by a nice woman who gave us our choice of seats. We had the vegetarian combo for two and some amazing, really snappy ginger beers. The food was extremely good and in large portions with unlimited bread (injera). The service was fast and the food delicious. The only thing is it was really quite in there, I hope more people discover this place to dine at.

Submitted Thursday, December 11, 2014 - 5:49pm [Dine in]

We went out for dinner On Saturday with another couple. We had been to the Derby ourselves and wanted to take our friends. We where not disappointed. Did I mention that the service was fantastic, the young lady who served us was simply the best she made great suggestions. knew her product and was timely with drink refills etc. I only wish my feeble memory could remember her name... The food was good, the seafood special was well presented and perfectly prepared. The ambiance was good a little busy in tat there are a lot of neon signs but the live entertainment was good without being overly loud. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Worst Chinese food in Surrey
By woof of cloverdale (3 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, December 11, 2014 - 5:33pm [Dine in]

I love Chinese food so I have tried many different places all over North America with mixed results. The food I was served was without a doubt the worst quality and the worst value I have ever been subjected to. I had the war wonton, the base was thin and tasteless the seafood was still frozen in the center the noodles where under cooked overall it was terrible and a small bowl cost over nine bucks. I warn you don't even try it!

Enjoy Palace22352 Lougheed Hwy, Maple Ridge
Quality has dropped for the worse!
By CastIronCook of Vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, December 10, 2014 - 3:51pm [Dine in]

At Enjoy Palace the food has been slipping in the quality department. Currently they offer off smelling pork dishes and very unhygenic food service practices. Definately not worth the venture for low quality ingredients and unsanitary conditions. A shame that the owner has lost his standards.There was a time when foods here were fresh.

My Greek Taverna946 Brunette Avenue, Coquitlam
Horrible service, horrible take out, don't bother
By ND of Coquitlam, B.C. (2 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, December 9, 2014 - 8:33pm [Take-out]

We have a young family and haven't been able to enjoy dinners out as much as we used to so order in/take out on special nites. One of my favs is Greek food. Unlucky for us, this is one of the only half decent Greek food places close by so are quite busy. The food is good, not fantastic, but good, the portions and prices are also good, not fantastic but good.

TAKE OUT SUCKS. They have no desire to cater to or expand their take out business. Your a second class customer and treated as such. Don't bother trying to order from them on Thursday Friday Saturday or Sunday, which are usually the nites you would want to treat yourself with take out. They are a busy location and couldn't be bothered to get the phone. They only have one line so you have to keep calling for at least 20 or more minutes straight. I've given up after 30 min of continuously trying before.

If your one of the lucky ones to get through, they immediately put you on hold or put the phone down and walk away. I was even told last weekend that they weren't accepting take out orders because they were to busy. How ridiculous, must be nice to be so busy that you don't care, turn down business and orders and leave money on the table. This after 20 min of trying to get through.

Tonite I thought I'd try again, it's a Tuesday nite so should be safe no? Was so excited to hear it ring and then Bam! a loud fax machine in my ear. Who would have the fax machine on the only # into the restaurant? I give up.

My only hope is that a Greek restaurant remotely good opens up within the area, given the crappy service at My Greek I'd be more than happy to take my business, and anyone else's I know, over to it.

Bao Chau Vietnamese Restaurant2717 E Hastings, Vancouver
Average meal
By rivers of Montreal / Vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, December 7, 2014 - 9:03pm [Dine in]

Upon recommendation by a friend I went to eat here. Instead of going by his word, I should have read the reviews beforehand.

My expectations arose as I saw that the place was not empty. And for the location it is in, with many other restaurants that also serve Vietnamese, I thought I was making a good choice.

But I was wrong. I had the spring rolls and the pho, both recommended to me. The food was average - I guess I expexted more? But what really bothered me was the low level of hygiene.

Be aware: this place is cash only.

Wow, from a Snob at Falafel King to an extremely Personable, Inviting, Kind, helpful Guy at Donair King!!!
G, ya think I should have checked out the ratings before hand, I'm obviously not the only one who has same response to both places! I've been passing up this place due to the crowds at night that are lined up in and about to satisfy their craving. So Happy I finally ended up there during the daytime and had an opportunity to devour one of the Donairs, warmed and toasted like Panini.. so delicious and I was surprised at the décor, I will definitely recommend this to everyone!!!! Yum!

My 75 yr old California Mom and I walked in to Falafel King at my request as hadn't tried this place yet, and will WARN OTHERS NOT TO AS WELL! Who needs this? All I asked when I observed the pickings were slim, is if he had tzatziki sauce? He was so Rude and didn't even have the courtesy to even look at us when he mumbled something about not knowing about Falafels : / really, buddy, all I can say is you copped an attitude that screams to customers to Stay Away and Not even bother. What a stuffed shirt, for what?

But as they say, another's loss is someone else's gain and now I can't wait to refer everyone who has a Falafel or Donair/Shawarma craving ...GO TO THE DONAIR KING on Davie next to Celebrities It IS KING!
and as usual it has several sauces you can choose from!

Best Quality Sweets & Restaurant7260 Main St., Vancouver
Best Discovery ~ Best Quality Sweets
By Frankie of vancouver (6 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, December 7, 2014 - 5:05pm [Dine in]

Best Quality Sweets & Restaurant is worth travelling down a few more blocks from the "main" shopping / restaurant area of Sunset Main St. This was our first experience. We bought a selection of sweets and snacks. All were fresh & flavourful. The service was quick & friendly. The value is fabulous considering the prices seem to be lower than any other place we've been to. The ambiance is not a trendy sit and linger sort in the least sense but it's very clean & casual. We are already talking about how we would like to sit in next time & take sweets to go. There was a steady flow of customers so it looked like they have regulars- this said a lot to us. So are we pleased to say this is our new go to place for sweets? YES. :)

total disaster
By clumsywaiter of Metro Vancouver (15 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, December 7, 2014 - 4:52pm [Dine in]

There are 2 restaurants here...one that serves brunch food and one that serves Chinese style
Northern dishes. Hence there are two chefs.

We came here on the recommendation from a friend about how good the noodles are.

It was a 40 min. Wait to get our food and the hand pulled noodles are overdone.plus it is served
In a tomato broth Which is strage

The beef roll was better but still too tough.

So much for thinking a bowl of noodles is a quick lunch . One patron left because the wait is
Too long

Needless to say they didn't get a tip.

Gami Sushi10111 Number 3 Road, 126, Richmond
Korean Sushi Surprise
By Thomas T. of Richmond , BC, Canada (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, December 6, 2014 - 6:25pm [Take-out]

Decided to try take-out at a local sushi restaurant in Richmond called Gami Sushi. The art of sushi was invented in Japan, but Gami Sushi has developed their own Korean style. The decor is modern, and the food is fresh, tasty, and filling. The portions were just great.The service was excellent, and they answered all my questions, even offering suggestions. Very helpful.

I liked the friendly atmosphere. As soon as I entered the restaurant, staff greeted me with a hearty "Hello." And when parting the premises, a cheerful "Good-bye." Just crazy, Gami Korean sushi 10% off take-out. I must try dining-in.

The Chicken Fried Rice and Chicken Wings are a must try. Afterwards, you can treat yourself a BUBBLE WAFFLE for dessert. They now have bubble tea which i have not tried yet. Very friendly service. I realized that they did clean up the place with new painted walls.

My friend tried the noodle soup and it was great. Portions we're very generous.

So-so pho place
By pug of Surrey , B.C. (16 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, December 5, 2014 - 4:25pm [Dine in]

I probably should have had the pho like everyone else there seems to. We had the salad rolls and lemon chicken/spring roll vermicelli bowl. They were both not bad but I have had better in Surrey so I won't be back for those kind of dishes here, maybe come back and try the pho. But with the parking like it is there that might be problematic. The salad rolls might have had MSG in them as the taste of them stayed around for most of the day. Very good service though and pleasant as well.

Either they improve their food or people are going to go there once and probably not again. I will say that a reason to go back are the samosas and veggie pakoras. I've tried the other dishes hoping to hit a good one but usually strike out. Sincerely hope they pick up the slack though. They are nice enough customer service wise.

yakisoba?
By mikeqwerty of vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, December 5, 2014 - 1:05pm [Dine in]

I tried the beef yakisoba. First they didn't use the proper type of noodles and the beef was paper thin. Instead of using buckwheat noodles they used ramen. It was served in a casserole dish. It was the worst yakisoba I ever had... It was so greasy and had no taste. I tried adding some soy sauce but it was so greasy even the flavour of the soy sauce could not escape. I would highly recommend you to try this just for the experience. It's like that move Battle Field Earth... Its so bad you have to experience it for yourself.

I was not a big fan of Korean food.
But this place has real something special..
Marinated fried chicken.. Best pairing for beer!!
Just come and try yourself. It tastes something different from those i tried.
Other foods are decent too. It could be great place for both snack and full meal.

I stopped going here fore lunch as the menu is a bit pricey and static. I went there recently for someone's birthday. There were 5 of us and I was the only one who had to look at the menu. Everyone else said "I always get the..." My chicken Caesar seemed to be chopped rather than torn which was a bit strange and also bland. Please change the menu!!!!!!!!!!!

Guu with Garlic1698 Robson St, Vancouver
Guu is amazing
By dreww_ of North Van (8 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, December 2, 2014 - 3:29pm [Dine in]

I love Guu. There is no other place I would recommend for izakayas than Guu. I used to be a regular at their original location on Thurlow but ever since I moved apartments I've had to find a new Guu to go to.

No change of taste between locations. I ordered the okonomiyaki with kimchi and it was delicious. Prices for food are low so it is really tempting to order more! I always have to stop myself. The sake is expensive though (duh) with the exception of the house sake. My favourite is the dassai.

No complaints. Even the service is great. People greet you as soon as you come in and are friendly at all times. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would!
