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.

Consistently good

We have been here a few times now and have always had good food and service. Yes, it can get a bit loud on Friday and Saturday nights but then go a different night if you want a quieter atmosphere. My husband loves the charcuterie with a variety of cheeses and condiments. We often let the server decide on the combination and surprise us. The little loaf of bread that it comes with is warm and soft. We have also tried the soup of the day (always good, especially the broccoli cheese soup when they have it), as well as several salads. The only thing I've not enjoyed is the pea sprout side salad (tastes like grass). The best thing on the menu is the amazing Thomas Haas chocolate lava cake. Amazing!! Best. Dessert. Ever.

While staying at the Holiday Inn on Business for a few days, had a few meals during the week and brunches on Saturday and Sunday. Have eaten in a lot restaurants but I found their Brunches more than excellent for the price. I would highly recommend this Pantry. I'll stop here again when in North Vancouver.

An English pub style restaurant at Lonsdale Quay that is a pleasent location for lunch. The clientele seems to be mainly seniors. The food was good but not outstanding, I enjoyed my salmon burger. There is a wide variety of pub food along with bugers and sandwiches.

WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE on the Northshore!!
By lmgraham of north vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, January 8, 2012 - 2:58pm [Dine in]

Absolutely the worst customer service on the Northshore!!! Ordered two chicken dishes - both we were told were souvlaki - when the dishes came - one was chicken on the bone - this ws sent back - now we had to sit and wait for the meal! Then we asked to take our remaining dinner home and they brought the take out container to the table for 'us' to pour our own food into - well that made a nice mess on the table and our laps!!! When I originally asked about why the waitress wouldn't do this for the customer her response was 'most people want to do their own because when its sent back to the kitchen you don't know what might happen to the dish!'????? I said - well I would hope that we could trust you!!!!! We then stood and 'waited' to pay the bill and asked for 2 bags for our food - she had to go back to the kitchen??? for 'paper' bags - it's Vancouver - and it's pouring rain outside!!! Geez! Then when I got home realized that we didn't get the garlic bread that was included with our meal!!!! What a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!!!!!! I then called the next day to speak to the Manager - when I called I got put on hold 3 times - when I tried to start to explain about the bad service and missing garlic toast - he says - 'why didn't you call last night?' OMG - when you come next time we give you 5 - 5 what - 5 garlic toast - I didn't even get to tell about the service he kept cutting me off or putting me on hold - RUDE RUDE RUDE!!!!! NEVER GO TO THIS RESTAURANT!!!

My favourite sushi restaurant on the Shore
By jeff_86 of North Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, January 7, 2012 - 11:43pm [Dine in]

I have eaten here at least once a week for almost five years now so I think I'm qualified to review the establishment accurately. I'd like to start by saying how shocked I am at the bad reviews here. Some of the people reviewing it sound like they have never eaten at a sushi joint before. One person complained that the waitress didn't provide them with a plate...? Well, how did they bring the sushi to your table? That's called a plate where I come from. Anyway, on to the review....

Every time I enter, I'm immediately greeted by a server. I never have to wait for acknowledgement even if they are clearly very busy. The servers are very polite and don't bother you with redundant questions about how your day is going unless you initiate. You are brought complimentary green tea like most restaurants offer. Once you put down your menu they are always on top of things and come over to take your order right away. I always receive my food roughly within 4-10 minutes depending on how busy it is. One thing I really love is how I can call them for takeout when I'm literally two blocks away and it's ready by the time I arrive. Amazing.

The food quality is excellent compared to most of the establishments in Vancouver and it NEVER fluctuates. The price is perfect for what you get, which is alot... Try going to the sushi place in Caufield and then compare it with Sushi Man. You get three times as much at Sushi Man! The only other place I eat at on the Shore is Yuko Maki. The price and quality is just about the same there. I love them both but I highly recommend Sushi Man because it's my favourite of the two.

Frustration
By hrog of North Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, January 6, 2012 - 10:46pm [Take-out]

I ordered three meals and they said 45 mins. 45 Minutes later they delivered half of the food. It was cold and no better then Mcdonalds... the delivery guy was frustrated because he had to call, which I understand so we gave him a good tip. I then called because half of our meal was missing but we did pay for it and it arrived 2 hours later cold! I won't order again just because you don't know what you will get or when.

Really bad service
By CMan of North Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, January 2, 2012 - 12:59am [Dine in]

I was there for a casual Friday for a few drinks and I must say the service was terrible and the food was worst. I wasn't expecting much as we decided to go because we were in the area. The waitress was not attentive and very unprofessional. The nachos were soggy and the beer was served in what I considered a dirty pitcher. All in all a must miss. Don't bother with this place.

Tamarind Hill Malaysian Cuisine1440 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
Malaysian Delight
By EarlPearl of North Vancouver (69 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, December 25, 2011 - 11:42am [Dine in]

For some odd reason we have never made it to the nearby Tamarind Hill in North Vancouver for Malaysian food before. It has a fairly Spartan decor, with polished concrete floors (easy to clean) and simple but dark walls and tables with a splattering of Malaysian decor along the walls. As with most small Asian restaurants, there is the perennial TV up in one corner which I’m never fond of because I find them distracting if you’re seated facing them. There was a bank of seats and tables along one wall, occupied by a very large family party, and a trio of 4-seat tables along the other wall.

We had made a reservation which turned out to be a wise move as the restaurant appeared to be fully booked at 6pm on a Saturday. The waitress apologized in advance for the wait for food as the large party was obviously keeping the kitchen busy so we nursed our Tiger beers for a while...no hurray, no problem. The waitress was working largely alone but she was very efficient, attentive when we needed it, and personable.

We ordered 4 dishes for the 3 of us which turned out to be plenty of food. The Kari Lamb was tender, boneless lamb in a spicy and flavourful coconut sauce with onions and potatoes, perfect for spooning over the steamed rice. The Sambal green beans were tender-crisp and stir fried with prawns, chillies, onions, and tomatoes (unfortunately, the Kang Kong we wanted was out of season). Char Kuey Teow was stir fried rice noodles with bean sprouts, black tiger prawns, fish cakes and cuttlefish in a lovely dark soy sauce. Our last dish was the most expensive on the menu: Softshell crab with Indian black peppercorns & garlic butter. The soft-shell crabs were delicious, crispy and spicy and came finished with fresh onions, chillies and Indian black peppercorns.

Overall everyone agreed the food was delicious, mildly hot (we’ll ask for extra spicy next time) and a smorgasbord of Malaysian spices and flavours. We’ll definitely be back to try a few other dishes. $95 for 3 people with tip.

I have been going here for years now, and have always loved their pizza. It is the crust and the toppings that they put on that make the pizza so delicious. I always order a pizza when I am coming down Grouse Mountain after a long day of snowboarding, and it is ready by the time I get there.
I am a true DDDN pizza fan.

Shoulda stayed home and eaten my leftovers.
By Reet of Vancouver (12 Reviews)

Had dinner here the other night and wished I had stayed at home.. I decided on the house specialty - Roasted lamb. Waitress described it as fall off the bone, roasted lamb shoulder or buttt, roasted with lemon and oregano. She said it was very tender and delicious. What I was actually served was a very tough lamb shank with no seasoning that I could taste whatsoever. More like Mutton which for those that don't know is an old mangy sheep.

It was fun!!
By WeekendChef of Burnaby (45 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, December 19, 2011 - 4:36pm [Dine in]

Heard this was going to be on Triple D and we wanted to check it out before the episode aired so off we went to check it out. I wasn't sure what to expect but it turned out to be a fun evening. A smaller room than I had expected and certainly what you'd call "rustic". Cozy too though and it appealed to me. We were seated quickly (around 7pm on a Saturday night late November) and our server was by to take drink orders quickly. Sweet young lady with a ready smile and a very polite manner. Our buddy ordered the Mixed Grill which was this monster plate of breakfast with 9 (NINE) slices of bacon! I thought he was insane and bet him he'd never finish it. Hubby ordered the slightly more modest Yukon Breakfast (with only 5 slices of bacon) (very nice bacon I might add!!!) while I had the roast beef dinner. Loaded high with mashed potatoes and veg... yum!!! Gravy over all of it. Heavenly! We all wanted pie but had no room in our tummies so we ordered slices to go and enjoyed them at home a couple of hours later.

We went back again this past weekend with some out of town friends and had had another nice evening. Same charming server and same great service. The boys mostly all had the special of soup, prime rib and chocolate cake for dessert. I had the Hot-Outta-the-Pan steak and eggs breakfast this time. A little over cooked to my liking (medium as opposed to more rare medium rare) but still very flavourful and tasty. There was silence as we all dug into our generous plates of food. It is what it is though.. it's diner food but very good diner food in my humble opinion. The boys all had a dessert and they said the chocolate cake (part of the 3 course dinner) was really good. They scraped their plates clean. Even though we hung out and chatted and caught up with each other's lives, we didn't feel rushed to leave or anything at all. The cleared the plates and left us to visit in peace. We got a cheerful "thank you" and "come again" from the whole staff when we eventually got up and yes... we will be back again soon! Must be careful to not indulge too often though... though one can never over-do bacon in my eyes, my doctor may have my hide if I go too often.

Learn to Appreciate your Customers, not Scowl at your Customers

Took mom here last week. The greeter was a nasty piece of work. I don't mind rude but out of your way rude is not necessary expecially when the food sucks. This place used to pack people in but we were here in a Friday and both dining areas were near empty and something did not feel right. The food took too long to arrive at the tables. The servings were small, the prices high, and the sauces too sweet. We used to like this people but sadly were reminded this evening of why we do not prefer this location. In an nut shell...it is important that customers don't need your restaurant, you need your customers. Smile, serve food quick, serve food that tastes good and serve food that is reasonbly priced. Otherwise you will have no one left, not even the odd sucker.

Mythos Taverna1811 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
Our Favourite
By Stephen Smith of North Vancouver, B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, December 17, 2011 - 11:37am [Dine in]

My wife and I dine out once a week, and have sampled many restaurants in North Vancouver. We are now into the habit of going back to Mythos at least once every two weeks, and have been doing so for the past seven years. In fact, we'd be happy to go every week. Why? First, we are welcomed by name as we enter, and the welcome is always warm. Second, the attention we receive once seated is the best we have experienced. Service is always quick and friendly, and the staff bend over backwards to please us. They anticipate our every need and wish. Third, we are confident that, no matter what we order (and we have now settled on a few favourite entrees), we are going to enjoy the food. There is always more than enough, and we usually bring a doggie bag home. Fourth, the restaurant is always full and bustling, and there is a warm, friendly atmosphere. Fifth, they make the best Spanish coffees in town. Our neighbourhood simply wouldn't be as attractive as it is without Mythos.

Good but too expensive
By Goodwrench of North Vancouver (40 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, December 16, 2011 - 5:27pm [Dine in]

Stopped by here for Lunch with a friend of mine. Had some food from the Dim Sum Menu, and from the Lunch Menu. First off the Dim Sum. It was good. I had the Fried Taro, Fried Squid, and Green Onion Pancake. I thought it was all pretty good. Standard Chinese food, nothing too fancy. Had a Yang Chow Fried Rice and a plate of Sesame Chicken. Again, it was good. I liked the Menu a lot. It had pictures and numbers to order what you want. The Dim Sum doesn't come out in a Cart, you simply check it off from the list.

The Decor of the plate is alright. Pretty standard Chinese style. It was clean and room. No wait for lunch, and food came pretty quickly. Service was alright too, everyone spoke english. Tea Pots were refilled quickly. Food came out quickly too. Parking in that Mall is a bit of a Gong Show!

Here's why I won't be going back. The value! 6.95 for fried squid is a bit steep. But, I guess that's about right for that area? I don't know. But, I know that the meal I ate would've cost about 10 bucks less in Vancouver. And, I know the quality would've been the same or better. Like seriously, it was Pricey! All in all, the two of us at for 45$ with tip included. That's a LOT. I mean, it was good, but, it wasn't nearly that good. If I had to go back, I wouldn't mind. But, given the choice, I'd rather head into town, order MORE food and pay less. That's just me, maybe I'm spoiled by the Chinese food in town. I really don't think any of the food was really noteworthy, just decent.

I used to eat at Honjin a few years back, but I thought that it had closed down and reopened as Bella Sushi. I was happy to find out that I was wrong and Honjin was still up and running as I wasn't too impressed with Bella. There wasn't anything I was disappointed in at Honjin. The hot food was hot and the cold food was cold. The flavour was great and I loved the sunomono. The service was fast and friendly. I will definitely be returning.

I was blown away by the food here! I have been eating Greek food my whole life, but I have never had a pork souvlaki like the pork souvlaki at Anatoli's. The spot is really cute and warm, and big! I shared calamari and hummus as a starter with my friend and it was amazing, the hummus is to die for, so garlicy and wonderful! The calamari was crisp and lemoney, and the tzatziki is phenominal. The service was great, friendly and warm. I will for sure be back!!

We had a very different experience than the previous two reviewers. Someone must have read the reviews. Upon arriving, we were seated promptly; the waitress quickly rearranged a table to suit our needs of a party of five. The menus and water were delivered immediately and we ordered two platters, with chicken and prawns. The warm pita and hummus was savory. The main dishes were delicious, the spanikopita and dolamates were especially tasty. Our waitress was attentive and polite. We had a great meal. We will definitely return.

Anatoli Souvlaki5 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
Overpriced for Sub-Par Food
By Veggie Girl of Vancouver (downtown) (2 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, December 10, 2011 - 4:30pm [Dine in]

I couldn't agree with the previous post more ("So Disappointing"). We went to this restaurant last night, and it was bad from the time we were seated. We were crammed into a tiny table at the back of the restaurant, and the people surrounding us were so loud that my boyfriend and I couldn't hear one another talk. The prices were slightly above average for Greek food, but we thought the restaurant was worth a try because 1.) we were starving and 2.) because we had already paid for 2 hours of parking in a nearby lot.
We were shocked by the small portions and the overall low quality of the food on our plates. I had the spanikopita plate ($16) - the spanikopita itself was very skimpy and contained little filling, the rice was incredibly bland, as was the Greek salad, and the potatoes and rice portions were very small. I attempted to find our waiter to ask for a lemon wedge for the salad (none was included on my plate), but she didn't stop by until we were nearly finished our meals. My boyfriend order the lamb souvlaki ($20), which was quite undercooked. The last piece of lamb on the skewer was so undercooked and chewy my boyfriend chewed on it for about two minutes and then had to spit it out. We informed our waiter of this, but he just mumbled "sorry" and then went on his way. No offer of reducing our bill for food that we couldn't finish. We have had much better Greek food at less expensive restaurants.
In sum, we will definitely avoid this restaurant in the future, and we recommend that other people avoid it if they are looking for good Greek food.
