ok so it started off good, nice little place, the waitress told us right away that they were slammed on the other side and that she really apologizes if it ever seemed like she was ignoring us, the bus boy called in sick, ok fair enough. so i ordered the halibut dinner, they brought me the wrong pasta and the halibut tasted like it had been frozen for a couple of years, it was rubbery and cold (it didnt even look like halibut) when i complained to the chef he sat there looking at me like i was on crack, staring not saying a word. i told him to try it and he would taste how horrible it was ( i had my friends try it and they could barely swallow) they eventually brought me another peice, it was hot this time, but cooked just wrong (not very fresh still rubbery, still tasted old). a couple of my friends had order the steak and prawns, waaaaaaaaay undercooked. for 5 bucks we ordered prawn on the side my dog could of done a better job. the service was terrible (i understand when its busy they may not be around as much ok, but thats no excuse for the food) the food was really not worth the price, and i dont know how this place could stay in business.
I finally tried this place after reading all the reviews. First let me say that the food is very good, and as close to authentic as i think you can get in vancouver. My wife is Thai and even she said , (save a few variations) that it was good. The delivery guy even went out of his way to go out of bounds for us. All that said, i still was angry enough to create an account and make this posting, which i never do. I ordered $130 worth of food , thinking it way more then enough to feed 4 people. When it arrived , EVERY dish i ordered was 9/10 lettuce on the bottom with maybe, maybe 4 tbs of actual food. The sum tum was not even enough to have a sample for all 4 of us. It was absolutely the worst portions i have ever seen. Sure the price seems fine until you open the lid and look. I have never been in the resturant , but i hope to hell it is better sizes then what we received. Very sad i will never order from there again because the food was very tasty ( what little amounts hit our tongues). In total we ordered 11 dishes. That should leave you satisfied and maybe a few bites the next day. So if you feel you have a few hundred dollars kicking around , go and order from there, dont worry you wont be full so you can still make your inlaws dinner at 5pm.
I have been reading through some of the reviews previously posted and I must agree on certain items. I am far from an expert, as most people are, but I must say that my fiancee and I went to the Queensborough comlex for a little shopping and found everything to be quite reasonable in the restaurant. Our dining experience started off quite fantastic with an enthusiastic young girl recognizing us when we walked in. She presented a menu and started talking a little bit to us about the menu. We told her that we had never been here before which opened up some conversation between us. Ordering was pretty straight forward. My fiancee is extremely picky, so it took sometime to process his order, but the cashier was able to customize an order to suit what he wanted. We sat down and the food took approximatley 8-9 minutes I suppose this is standard since everyone seemed to get the food around the same time. The food presentation looked very attractive! I felt there could have been a little bit more sauce on my meal but my picky fiancee loved his meal since it was exactly what he envisioned. We finished and twice we had someone check on us to see if our food was ok it almost seemed like a regular restaurant except no tips! Well I guess you could if you wanted. The decor was really nice and we both agreed that it would be a nice place to take a date if you wanted. The manager there explained that most of these locations are close to shopping centers and movie theaters so you could easily include it in your day of outings and rely on some great food and really good service.
Ceratinly a place I would visit again and reccommend to those who want a fast casual healthy restaurant.
I heard good things about Amelia Restaurant so i decided to check it out. We went for breakfast. There is no parking so you have to park on the street or pay the meter. The place looks very old, and when you enter it smells very old inside. The decor is dated, it's like being in someone's home. Service was friendly and prompt. I ordered the #5 veggie omelet with pan fried potatoes and toast. It was a fair portion and it tasted pretty good although a little under-seasoned. I usually like the food to be pre-seasoned. You shouldn't have to add anything like salt or pepper. But i understand they cook for a variety of diets and tastes and this is the norm for practically every restaurant out there except the better ones. For 5.75 it was a great deal. My partner ordered buttermilk pancakes, i guess you can't go wrong for 4.95. She did say it was kind of soggy and doughy as opposed to fluffy and light. I rated a mediocre for food because it wasn't really anything special, it was just ok because of lack of seasoning. But i think i would return here, the value and service make up for the shortfalls. I would pick this place over Denny's. I am looking forward to trying their Curry Laksa and Malaysian fried rice in the future.
