I used to find myself at this place often. Something has surely happened with the management as of the last few months. The food is mediocre, a greasy spoon such place. Nevertheless, I would eat here due to convenience. The staff on the weekends over turn as fast as the customers to walk through there, leaving the rest of the people to treat the customers as garbage. Leave this breakfast place out of your weekend, you surely wont miss anything except mistreatment by the staff and maybe a blocked artery.

Really good food, shame about the service...

We popped in for lunch about 11:45 and were the first ones in the restaurant. We ordered a California roll, Rainbow roll, Chirashi Don, and Gomae for the two of us. The food took quite some time to come and they delivered the two rolls for my son first and by the time he was completely finished eating, they brought my Chirashi Don. The 2 waitresses working were pathetic. One of them dished out the most minuscule portion of Gomae (we're talking 1 unheaped teaspoon) and they tried to tell us it was because they had changed the portion sizes. I forgot to ask them if they had cut the price in third as well. Since my son had been there twice before and had Gomae both times and gotten a normal portion, her lie was even more ridiculous. Later on she thought better of trying to slide one over and brought us another portion of Gomae. Later on both waitresses were standing around staring into thin air while we waited for them to notice our tea pot was empty (I had taken the lid off... traditional Asian cue for a refill). My son finally had to wake one of them up to refill our tea. The saving grace for this place is that the food is very good. The rolls were both tasty and my Chirashi Don was nicely presented, the fish was good quality and it was very good value for $12.95. Still, I tipped barely 10% and I'm getting sick of tipping even that much when we would have had a more enjoyable meal if it were self-service. I did give the sushi chef the thumbs up on the way out for the food though, thinking he deserved the tip more than ther servers did.

After numerous times swearing I wil not return because of the poor service. The reviews here are correct. I will not return. Just not worth the bad vibes if you don't eat fast or tip big. Times we have ordered and picked up - only to find the order has not even been started by the kitchen (untuil it is paid for apparently.) Nah. We're done here.

This is the best chinese we've found, especially on the North Shore, but man, does their attitude stink! They have never charged us the same for the same meal, will refuse to deliver based on she's feeling that day and you're often kept waiting a long time for your food to be delivered. They are pretty popular so I guess they can afford to keep the horrible hostess and staff...

This place is pretty good but I wouldn't recommend bringing children. The food was a bit soggy but the great taste of the toppings completely made up for it. Great place to buy quick party food. The puns are hilarious and the mini game you can play there is very addicting. The snowman I saw outside the restaurant showed me that they were very festive.

Krua Thai Restaurant1445 Lonsdale Ave., North Vancouver
Not Authentic Pad Thai
By foodmuncher of vancouver (2 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, January 23, 2012 - 5:09pm [Dine in]

This place seemed nice enough. When I went in and ordered a Lunch Special (Pad Thai), the taste was not like the one I had in Thailand. The color looked red and that led me to the fact that they could possibly be using tomato sauce instead of the real tamarind sauce and that is probably only because they want to use less costly ingredients. The quality of the food was a bit low, but I'm not complaining. Also the proportion was a bit on the small side, but I guess that would be fine related to the price. Through my opinion, this place would be for those people who like small amounts of food.

Dirty dining room. Maybe the staff is allergic to cleaning tables...
By Jose K. of Vancouver (2 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, January 22, 2012 - 1:48pm [Dine in]

On a Saturday night, the tables were always dirty. It seemed like the servers were waiting for new diners to show up before cleaning them. Having someone else's leftovers in my line of sight for 20 minutes or longer is really yucky. The food doesn't taste that good either, or maybe I was just too grossed out to enjoy anything.

A birthday dinner with the girls...my wife's guest review
By EarlPearl of North Vancouver (69 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, January 21, 2012 - 7:06pm [Dine in]

On the occasion of my wife's 29th birthday (again, she's apparently ageless), she is providing the details of her recent B-day dinner with her girlfiends (since I wasn't invited thank you very much).

Brown's is popular for it's cheap drinks which they of course indulged in since it was a B-day dinner. Wife started with a cup of French Onion soup which was too much packed into a too small of a cup to even eat without all the broth and contents overflowing.

Wife ordered a blackened fish burger which she said was surprisingly bland for a blackened fillet....and a bit overdone and dry to boot. Fries and coleslaw, hot and fresh and tangy respectively. Two of her friends ordered steak sandwiches, one medium rare and one well done (OMG, why even order a steak) which of course got switched when they came to the table probably because they were chattering too much and not paying attention to the waitress. Of course the two girls didn't noticed until they had already dug into their plates. But otherwise they were well received. The last of the quartet order a blackened chicken rice bowl which seemed to satisfy her. For dessert the four of them shared a slice of chocolate cake with a tangy raspberry layer.

Service was fine and despite a few glitches they enjoyed their dinner (cheap drinks help) and want to go back try Browns for breakfast next. I'm still not invited.....

C-Lovers Fish & Chips1660 Pemberton Ave, North Vancouver
A quick and tasty Friday night dinner
By EarlPearl of North Vancouver (69 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, January 21, 2012 - 1:17pm [Dine in]

So it's Friday night and everyone has plans later that evening so we decided to pop out early for something a bit greasy...... we'd been eating mostly sushi, broiled chicken and salad dinners that week. Loaded lovely wife and #2 son into the car and headed for C-Lovers next to Save-On. We hadn't been there for a few years. The restaurant was only half full although there was a steady stream of takeout customers coming and going, clutching their newspaper wrapped parcels under their arms to shield them from the wind and the rain. At 5pm the customers were mostly seniors which as I recall seems to be a popular time for them at C-Lovers.

We grabbed a window table and ordered right away. Our server was fast, friendly and efficient. We picked a 2 piece cod dinner, a 1 piece cod dinner and a 2 piece haddock dinner. Everything came fresh from the fryer with mounds of fries and coleslaw. Their slaw is crisp, fresh and not overdressed like many...quite refreshing. Fries are home cut, crispy and taste like....wait for it....potatoes.....just the way a frie should taste. The cod was moist and delicious in a thin, light and crispy batter that wasn't overly greasy at all. The haddock is a thinner and firmer filet that carries a bit more batter with it but both were very tasty with malt vinegar and tartar sauce from the table containers. We were comfortably stuffed and not with grease. Next time I might try a 1 piece halibut with a side of their mushy peas.

Decor is what you'd expect for a chain restaurant with high turnover....simple and easy clean. Dinner was done in 30 minutes for $50 including tip. Quick and tasty....no complaints. One of the best fish and chips on the North Shore.

Anatoli Souvlaki5 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
Best Greek Food in the Lower Mainland
By Seanjohn of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, January 20, 2012 - 7:59pm [Dine in]

Anatoli Souvlaki is absolutely the best Greek food in Vancouver. The service is top notch and the food is even better. Owners, Iani and Alexi Makris really make you feel right at home when you walk in the door. The ambiance is great but watch out for the belly dancer on Friday nights, she is always looking for a dance partner. All the dishes served at Anatolis are quality, The tarmas is by far the best I have had anywhere. It doesn't have the fish smell I have noticed at other restaurants. The consistency and texture are phenomenal. The calamari, saganaki and dolamades are to die for. All lamb dishes are great, definitely the best country and roast lamb dishes. Take a look at the souvlaki options as well, if you notice the difference between Anatolis and any other Greek restaurant is the fact they serve a pork souvlaki. It is very good, other restaurants dont serve it because it costs more and is harder to cook. Don't be fooled though, the lamb, beef and chicken souvlaki are just as good. No Greek food in Vancouver is cheap and I am willing to pay a little more to go to Anatoli Souvlaki.

Want outstanding comfort food every time? I always hit Burgoo. Just an awesome little joint for Soup and Sandwich. Everything I've tried I've really enjoyed, and the staff have a smile on their face and recognized me quickly. It took me a while to find a place that made food like Mom used to for lunch, but with the flare of a chef. This is now the place I wish I could hit every single day for lunch or dinner.

Great place to go before heading downtown for a hockey game or concert too! Right by the Seabus and near parking :)

I've tried every Chinese food place within a 30 minute drive and there's none as good as Woon Lee. The ginger beef, chop suey, and sweet and sour pork are Friday night staples. I adore this place's prices, and they nail every one of your favorite american chinese food dishes. It's always hot, crispy, fresh and well spiced/seasoned.

We have been eating here for DECADES now and won't change. The huge leftovers from a very reasonably priced meals make the family happy

Some of the best Thai food, not great prices
By bormac of East Vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, January 18, 2012 - 2:23pm [Dine in]

I LOVE this thai restaurant. The pad thai and panang curry are delicious, and I always try new things which are as good as the last dish. It's got a very clean modern feel and the ambiance is lovely, especially compared to other Thai places. The one negative would be the portion sizes... I find that there are usually little in the way of leftovers after a fairly expensive meal, which I'm used to having at other similar restaurants. If that changed, I'd eat here every week and spend far more $$ on them!! *hint hint*

Sushi Town1227 Marine Drive, North Vancouver
Trying to be something they're not
By bormac of East Vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, January 18, 2012 - 2:14pm [Dine in]

Sushi Town has the feel of a bistro, and the service of a fast food joint. I've visited 5 times now and probably sat an average of 10 minutes waiting for service each time. The waiters speak poor English and make mistakes, never attend their customers once food is delivered and don't bring the cheque around at any point unless you physically get up. The food is nothing special, and not as good as the cheaper faster places around it. Several times it has been overly satly or cold. There is a bar right at the entrance that is still incomplete. Why?! You have been open a couple years now correct?

Don't waste your time and money. There are many other places better and friendlier.

I think I have to be one of the biggest loves of cheap sushi out there. I don't feel that you need to pay huge money for great rice and fish. Ika Sushi is proof positive. Their lunch special - 3 rolls for $6.95 isn't beat anywhere else on the north shore. The portions are huge, it's fast, and always fresh and delicous. There's a reason this place is always a bee-hive of activity. It's one of the best sushi places around

Delany's Coffee House3099 Edgemont Boulevard, North Vancouver
Great goodies, brutal service
By bormac of East Vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, January 18, 2012 - 2:08pm [Dine in]

I'ved lived in Edgemont Village for several years and was a fairly frequent patron of Delany's. Their baked goods are outstanding, their specialty coffees are great. Their brewed house blend coffees are bitter and burnt but usually better than Starbucks

Unfortunately, their biggest issue is customer service. From the new faces right up to the season staff, their body language is dreadful and their attitude seems little better. There is hardly a single employee at the Edgemont location who is consistantly polite or who makes me feel welcome. It's well known around the village, everyone knows this but it's inexcusable. Their one major draw over Starbucks should be their customer service but it simply isn't. They desparately need to work on this.

Basil's Subs125 West 3rd Street, North Vancouver
Great sandwiches
By cheese_weasel of Coquitlam (5 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, January 17, 2012 - 4:11pm [Dine in]

Went to Basil's to use a Groupon (2 sandwiches,pops,chips). Free street parking.

This has got to be one of the best sandwiches I have eaten in a long time. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich. You get to watch them prepare it in front of you. Fresh ciabatta bread toasted and sliced, loaded with pulled pork, real cheese and coleslaw. You can choose your in-house made sauces (quite a few to pick) to complete the sandwich. Just the sandwich would have been filling enough even without the chips and pop.

Staff were nice and it seems the owner is onsite all the time.

Great sandwich, good value, and good staff. Seating is limited so maybe aim for after lunch.

Will definitely add to the lunch rotation.

Great local hand made artisan bagels, boiled and baked fresh daily. I found it to be good value and good choice of flavours. They also sell an organic oat granola called Edelweiss Granola, which is the best I have ever tasted. They bring in cream cheese from Montreal and mix their own fresh ingredients, it is the best. My personal favourite is Honey vanilla cream cheese on a warm fresh blueberry cinnamon bagel (only on saturdays)

High Quality Persian Food
By Bruhn of North Vancouver (5 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, January 14, 2012 - 6:45pm [Dine in]

Went there with three others for dinner after reading nothing but good reviews on other websites. The praise was well deserved. We started with a hommus dish, which was totally authentic and exquisite in both presentation and taste. Two of us had shishlick lamb kebabs which were juicy and tasted like lamb should. One had the tenderloin AAA beef kebabs which were tender, succelent and of the highest quality. The kebabs were served with saffron basmati rice which was aromatic and delicate to the taste. One of us had the lamp shank. The meat was so tender it fell off the bone and it was marinated with a house sauce that added to the exotic flavour. It was served with basmatic rice mixed with dill weed and lima beans. In a nutshell, relatively simple dishes (like most Persian fare) but presented beautifully and most importantly, which tasted wonderful. All four have vowed to return ASAP. My wife and I will not wait until then and will return first with other friends we plan to introduce this new gem of a restaurant to.
