Symposio1564 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
Cozy Greek joint
By motohachi of North Vancouver (8 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, April 29, 2012 - 1:53pm [Dine in]

Went there recently on Saturday night. It was very busy, but the service was prompt. I had calamari dinner, which was excellent and not greasy at all. My husband's lamb shank was very tender. Very creamy Zatziki. In addition to usual selections they offer some unfamiliar (to me anyways) casserole dishes too. Will go back again.

Pho Saigon128 East 14th Street, North Vancouver
Best Vietnamese on North Shore
By motohachi of North Vancouver (8 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, April 29, 2012 - 1:36pm [Dine in]

Latest addition to the North Shore Vietnamese restaurant scene, the Pho Saigon offers best soup. Very friendly and attentive staff. Only opened a few months ago, they have developed solid lunch crowd. My favorite is #10 (beef ball & raw beef) and crunchy spring rolls. The price is slightly higher than the ones on Kingsway, but still very reasonable. Highly recommended.

Delicious food, right price and service with a smile

Recommended by a friend to visit the restaurant.
Although there was a line up. we were seated in a matter of minutes.
Even though the restaurant was full, the service was fast, efficient, always with a smile and exceptionally polite.
Very very reasonably priced and above all, the food was delicious, salads tasted fresh, just right and taste and tenderness of the meat was perfect. Big portions too!! Th two of us could not finish it all and had to take out the rest.
The ambiance and atmosphere of the restaurant was of happiness and contentment.
Lots of polite service staff always whizzing by and never short of service. If you like authentic Iranian food, you should go.
If you are not Persian/Iranian, you might want to ask the server in detail what your meal would look like as there are no "pictures" of the meals on the menu. There is a TV screen depicting what meals look like at different intervals. Did not see any alcohol being served.
In short, a great dining experience.
One of the best restaurant I have been to. You should go...

Saturday night out experiement with friends
By Kelvin_Brown of North Vancouver, BC (15 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, April 25, 2012 - 1:21pm [Dine in]

After reading the reviews, we thought we'd try this place out on a Saturday night & were pleasantly surprised.

There was a diverse selection of menu items, all very reasonably priced, with the hotness being indicated by a "chilli" rating. We started with the "roti canai", which was a good appetiser. For main course I had the kari lamb & asked for it to be spiced up a little. It was a succulent dish of tender lamb in a superb-tasting curry sauce. It was the perfect hotness; very spicy without losing the flavours. It was a good sized portion & came with a adequate bowl rice. Delicious.

Friends ordered different dishes, all of which were extremely tasty & colourful & once again the portions were generous. Great value for money.

The service was solid, efficient & attentive, without being overbearing.

The restaurant is not too big & is popular, so we booked & I would advise you to do the same, particularly if dining on a busy Saturday night. Be aware the restaurant closes at 9.30pm on Sat./Sun., which does seem a little early. We were given notice that the bar was closing & were invited to order additional drinks & food, if required. However, we did not feel rushed, despite the staff wanting to shut up shop.

The decor is basic but adequate. The atmosphere is OK. You can carry on a conversation without loud music etc.

There's a good selection of beers & wines, but there was no cider for my wife. It would be good to see a few draught beers on tap.

I'm not overly familiar with Malaysian food, but this was a great find & I would definintely a go back.

Kyung Bok Palace143 West 3rd St., North Vancouver
worst Korean bbq restaurant ever!
By sirotanchelly123 of North Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, April 22, 2012 - 10:52pm [Dine in]

I've been in North Van for a long time and I've always noticed this restaurant as i pass by but never dined in. I finally decided and took my friends this past weekend to Kyung Bok palace. We should have never went.

We ordered the BBQ COMBO for 4 and the amount of food we got was crappy. The amount of meat they gave us couldn't even feed a full grown man. Absolutely crappy but we were hungry so we ordered more meat which is additional 28. You'd think that's a fair amount of meat for that amount of pricing right? heck no!!! the meat they brought out was not worth the extra $28. It was insulting! I've been to other Korean bbq restaurants in greater Vancouver and for a bit cheaper, we got "all you can eat " meats!

If you don't believe me, please by all means go and waste your money and see for yourself. The taste was overall good but you can get that elsewhere for cheaper and more.

My overall rating is 1/5 only because they actually served the food.

If you like fish and chips then you have to give this C-Lovers a try. They offer Halibut, Cod or Pollock and it all tastes great. Every time I order from there its perfect and its usually ready in about 5 minutes. A perfect spot lunch or dinner. Give this place a try and you'll be pleased I'm sure.

Happened here during their happy hour which takes a few dollars off of some of the dishes that are already very reasonably priced. The menu is nice and concentrated, and it shows in the execution of the food. The chicken kabab is very nice. The lamb shank with dill rice is a definite star. Nice tender lamb that easily glides apart as your fork presses down on it. Service is efficient without being pushy. All in all a good place to stop in for a meal when on the north shore.

Me and my wife used to go here alot.
Don't get me wrong the food is good and
Good value. We used to love the atmosphere
Run by an italian family. Good staff. But in the
Last couple of years ill tell you things have totally
Changed. The last 3 times we went there
The service was a nightmare and the waiters
And waitresses just don't care whatsoever
They probably make minimum wage.
The last 2 times we were there they
Totally got our order wrong and made us
Wait without being apologetic.
The owners the husband and wife used to
Be caring individuals but they no longer
Seem to care about their business eighter.
When confronted they just didnt care no apology
And they jus blame their bad service
On the fact that their busy or their short staffed
If u don want to be dissappoited dont go here!

Good sushi but very disappointed that there is NO wild salmon...
By momoftwo of North Vancouver, BC, Canada (2 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, April 14, 2012 - 6:32pm [Dine in]

My family dined here tonight and my husband and I both ordered a combo sushi. I asked for wild salmon, usually I can always request wild salmon if the restaurant doesn't provide it as standard. I don't mind paying extra for wild. I was stunned to find out that they don't have wild, only farmed salmon! I find it quite sad that customers aren't asking for wild more, with so much information about the benefits of wild, and the detrimental effects of farmed...

For this reason alone we won't be back.

The food (other than the farmed salmon) was really good, the tuna melted in my mouth, and the price was great. Service was not very good at all, in fact really bad, but I would overlook this if the salmon was not farmed.

Too bad... :(

Aristos Greek Taverna1238 Ross Road, North Vancouver
North Vancouver's best kept secret for authentic Greek food
By muscleman87 of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, April 13, 2012 - 8:50am [Dine in]

I was a bit skeptical because of the old reviews on here, but I was seriously craving chicken souvlaki and decided to try it out. Immediately I noticed the 'New Management' sign. My girlfriend and I ordered one of the dinner platters - expecting just enough food for two people and were amazed at how much we got! Not only that...but the food was freaking incredible. Lamb so tender it melts in your mouth, as well as beef and chicken marinated to perfection.

On top of that we had a super friendly waitress and the chefs even occasionally come out to great us. Finished the night off with a traditional Greek dessert (Baclava? I forget the name) and some tiramasu.

Ambience was also very good. Cozy and clean. Apparently everything has been completely renovated. Looks like they did a good job.

Also - TRY THE SANGRIA. Best I've ever had.

Where everyone doesn't know your name.......

Submitted Monday, April 9, 2012 - 11:01am [Dine in]

Well, I came here for the first time in the early 90's and I really don't remember what I had or how it was. My girlfriend took me here again after so many years for my birthday and boy, was it cheap and pretty good. I had the Pot Roast, it was good, nothing fancy and I had the salad buffet with it also. The dessert can be a bit better, not too bad, but I saw a pie out in the open that night on a cart, just sitting there, it should be covered or behind some glass so people that walk by don't sneeze or cough when going by.
Already in my reviews I always state that the people working anywhere, especially in the Food industry to tie their hair up and don't touch your face or hair. Not that I saw anything like this that night and oh, my friend told me she heard that the restaurant is the third place for being clean in the North Shore. I am happy to hear that.
The deco is ugly, the place does need reno's, it looks like the 80's still. Just as long as it's clean and the staff is clean.
The food is good. I had the Fish n' chips, burger, pasta dishes since I've been back this year. All cheap in price, which is great, considering no one has money these days.
All in All, try out this place, great for taking your mom and pop to. Good Food...Good Prices.....staff is pretty friendly. Service is ok. For the price you pay. Try this place out!

Thanks to Lynn and Brian, proud new owners of my favorite burger joint, Vera's on Lonsdale, North Vancouver, we can now sit in clean comfort within a newly-renovated much-improved environment, chowing down on my favorite Veggie extra cool works combo, while chatting with the ever-friendly staff and owners. They certainly are proud of their new digs, and obviously the staff are really happy about working there. Each time I come in (I am a shameless regular, so much so that the staff know what to make for me the moment I walk through their door) I FREQUENTLY bring in friends so that they can some day become inveterate regulars too. Staff are always very friendly, professional and happy, greeting everyone who comes in like they are old friends.
I will only go to my Lonsdale Vera's burger for my veggie burgers, and believe me, I've been all over Vancouver and North Shore looking for the best veggie. These guys here are the only ones who know just how much fixins to put in the burger, even compared to other Vera's in Vancouver! Therefore, this is the only place that provides me with what I want. And they can count on me to keep coming there, to dine in or take out.
My companion enjoyed her natural burger, also cool works, and agreed that this was the premier place, making the best burgers around the lower mainland.
So, folks, come in and try the new digs, fixed up like a little diner.
Chomp down on the best burgers in this area whether you're a carnivore or a veg...
bon appetit!!!!!!

Submitted Thursday, April 5, 2012 - 7:17pm [Dine in]

OMG the new owners have hit a home run and I want to go back every day. This place is truly the best I have ever tasted. The new owners are Greek and know Greek food that is for certain. Nickky introduced herself and gave me the royal treatment. She brought me 3 or 4 things to taste for free, and we ordered every one of them. We were treated like part of the family and all that was missing was the sofa for me to lay down on after as I was so stuffed and the food was so good I could not resist trying it all.

I was in here a few months ago when old owners owned it, and I can tell you it has been renovated very nicely and it is so clean and fresh in there. I can't believe how it is so much different and so much better.

Order a jug of Sangria. Oh yeah, they have home made desserts, including ttaditional Greek desserts and even Tiramisu and Creme Brûlée. I had a coffee and it was served with a nice Belgian Chocolate square. Like I said, I was treated like royalty and am so excited that Nicky took over this place, I can even walk there, it's just across from McDonalds in Lynn Valley.

The best. The best. The best.

This place is great. They have amazing value in their lunch specials. The quality is always high and the food is very consistent. I have eaten here dozens of times for lunch and it is now one of my favorite lunch places on the North Shore. The food here is much better than the Thai House and the prices are better too. I recommend you give this place a try if your looking for a great lunch at a great price. You won't be disappointed.

I always enjoy my lunch at Capilano Sushi. Take out is always quick and the food is always good. They have specials for under $7.00 that are well worth it. Give this place a try and you won't regret it. I've tried all their local competitors and I say for the price you can't beat Capilano Sushi. One of my favorite lunch spots on the north shore.

went to the Vera's in North Van and had stopped going for poor quality. The new owners were amazing and the place with its sports on the three or four televisions made the visit not only fun but interesting as there were different games on each TV. The food was top notch and service was excellent. We ordered the Canuck burger and we were not only served at our table but asked how it was. We felt like we were at a restaurant/pub as we never had to leave the table at any time. I will be back,

Unfortunately, service doesn’t come with a smile here. While their doughnuts are exquisitely tasteful, the staff attitude, on the other hand, is just the opposite. In fact, the last time I was there, one lady berated a couple of out of town tourists for having English as a second language, leaving a bitter taste in my mouth (not a good combination with their delicious doughnuts). I’m presuming she is the owner’s wife, judging from the rancid eau-de-arrogance emanating from her personality -- as if to say, “I (co)own this place, little minion, so yes, I can and will treat you like the dog excrement under my left shoe, and think NOTHING of it.” You stay classy, co-owner lady. I will come back for a doughnut, but let it be known that I will not provide you with a smile. Nor a tip.

I've been to Northlands a half dozen times or so. The food is excellent & the view can't be beat. However, the last couple times I've gone, the only server working is friendly but never around. Both times my husband had to chase him down to ask where our food was, & we waited over half an hour for our meals even though there were only a few tables occupied. Then we had to chase the server down again to pay the bill. It's a lovely place if you have ages to wait for your food, but I probably won't be going back for a while. Hopefully they shape up. It used to be a great place with excellent value, but the slow service is a real turnoff.
