ive got to comment usually i dont do reviews but i have to on this white spot! the asian floor manager treated the young staff with loud voice and ordering agrgessively and came to our table aggressively i had to tell him he was getting that way then he said its loud in here so i have to yell then said ill be right back. he went away as he knew he was wrong then he came back. my son asked for a different waiter he refused to acknowledge it . he put the bank machine in the middle of the table and bent down and was almost in my face wiith his loud voice .. the young staff are delightful there and working so hard for him! The food was good and the waitress we had was a student and exceptional customer service skills. i told her i felt sorry for her! he told us to see the owner ! He treated children the same way!!! He has no kindness or hospitality!! We will go back for the staff and the food they are great!! The owner should be proud to have some exceptional staff on and pay them well so they will stay!!! In my life i have never seen a flooir manager like that. oknow i've had my say !

Woon Lee Inn3751 Delbrook Ave, North Vancouver
so sad
By illeatthhat of West Vancouver BC (7 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, March 1, 2015 - 3:35pm [Dine in]

Now to write a review that's worth reading(?)
Woon Lee Inn. It use to be our late night Chinese restaurant for to order from for our "need good quality westernised Chinese binge food...NOW! place." Until last weekend.
Since we haven't ordered our Chinese fix for a bit, what arrived (promptly) was not what was expected. We ordered our three staples.. Chicken chow main. WoonLee Inn speacial fried rice, steamed veggies;
they were as expected. But the two new items (ginger beef) was just LEFT OVER THREAD THICK BEEF that was deep fried with ten times more batter than meat. No ginger and we needed to look very hard for the beef(where's the beef?) If you order this, just think of a beefish popcorn.
The second disappointment was the costly lemon chicken. One breast, dry with some packing material white filler. I'm not sure if this white stuff was edible. I didn't expect to pay for something that I could pack electronics in instead of chicken.
Next well try another "MUST HAVE GREASIE NOW! food."

Narrows Public House1970 Spicer Rd, North Vancouver
Dinner, typical pub style
By EarlPearl of North Vancouver (69 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, February 21, 2015 - 9:11am [Dine in]

Three of hit the Narrows for dinner on a Thursday night. I hadn't been there since it was the old Maplewood. We got there at 5pm so it was still happy hour with $3 sleeves of lager or pale ale. We had planned to sit downstairs near the fireplace but the Canucks were playing back east and all the big screens were blasting the game so we retreated upstairs to a slightly quieter table in the "nightclub" part of the pub where we could talk.
We ordered a spicy chorizo pizza which was nicely done, a calamari which was fine but would be better if they used a crispy batter instead of breading, and a pulled pork sandwich which was a bit bland but the fries that came with it were very good. The single server did her best to make sure we were well served but she was obviously a bit overworked by the time we finished up. Overall with tip the tab was $70 including 5 sleeves of pale ale. Next time we go there, we'll check the sports schedule first, hit happy hour for the beer deal, and share a few pizzas.

Great view - disappointing food
By Bailey-bo of Surrey , BC (3 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, February 18, 2015 - 11:58am [Dine in]

Food was laughable... little dollops and smears of this and that scattered around your entree. Your waiter will explain what all the miniscule items are so pay attention as they are not readily identifiable. My main item was pork and it was a decent size but had no flavour whatsoever. It was hard for me to believe this was prepared by qualified chefs. Service was unprofessional and a little haughty.
Saving grace is that the view was outstanding and your ticket up is free with a dinner reservation. This meant we could go up early and spend the day hiking which was wonderful. This of course elevates the "value" as it may translate to your dinner being near free if you look at it that way. Just go without high expectations for taste (and take a picture of your food when it comes so you can show your friends... it's a conversation piece!)

Denny's2050 Marine Dr., North Vancouver
Worst dining experience ever!
By Nippely of North Van, BC (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, February 12, 2015 - 12:50am [Dine in]

My friend and I decided to go here for brunch as Denny's is usually good for breakfast. What followed can only be described as the worst dinning experience I have ever had. Having eaten at several Denny's restaurants over the years, we know what to expect. So after taking and waiting for our drink order, the table next to us receives their food and one of the guys says that's not what I ordered, I ordered a .... The server apologises and goes to the kitchen and we are subjected to the shouting match between the server and the cook over who got the order wrong. Not thinking too much about it because mistakes happen, our server returns with our drinks and takes our food order but before she gets to leave, another patron from the table next to us calls her over and has a complaint about the food he received. Our server again apologises and says she'll be right back with a replacement. So while waiting for our food we get to enjoy another shouting match between the server and the cook that escalated to the point where the manager had to run in and break it up. After waiting a unreasonable half hour, our food arrives. My friend ordered a club sandwich with fries and I had ordered a breakfast omelette. My food looked ok but my friends plate just has the sandwich and no fries. He mentions it and our server apologises and says she'll be right back with the fries. Again another argument in the kitchen ensues. I start eating and my first piece of toast is really dry and I assumed it was because it had dried out sitting under a heat lamp while waiting to get served. My friend eats the first of the four sandwich pieces on his plate. It's at this point he notices that the Toast of the two middle sandwich halfs are burnt black (I guess the cook thought he could hide it??). I get the managers attention, he comes over and we explain the situation and show him the sandwiches to which he offers a replacement which my friend accepts and off he goes. Just then our server arrives with a plate of fries for him and I go to eat another piece of toast and when I turn it over to put jam on it, I see it is completely covered in mould. Yes the bread hadn't dried out under a lamp, the bread was stale and mouldy. I nearly threw up right there. We call the manager over, show him my toast and he agrees that's unacceptable, offers to replace it which we declined. We also told him to cancel my friends reordered sandwich as we had both lost our appetites at this point. While waiting to see if we were going to get a bill (which they didn't) we were subjected to another shouting match between the manager and cook about my toast. The cook was adamant the toast was fine. In my opinion, if the cook thinks that's acceptable then what other rotten food is he sending out "thinking" it fine.

I will never return to this restaurant again, probably even ever a Denny's again. If you decide to go here, you have been warned!

Tried this place out with a beautiful Persia... This is a Persian lady right?
She ordered for the two of us as I no lingo the ablaa. The onion to wrap in some bread....nope. But the kabba and the rice with some salad..mostly iceberg lettuce...this was just the wrong kind of lettace for a Healrh salad. But the meat with the rice was great. The. Best thing was the crunchy thing with some sort of topping. The sound with this new flavour was fun to eat qnd to listen to wnothher person eating. The value was great for two people..$40 for a Saturday night was good value.lots of left over. Now I cannot remember what the names of most of the items we ate, except for what I've already mentioned. But I will go back.even if I just eat the crunchy thing. But hold the raw onion please. The service was nice, and they didn't kick us out as they were closing up. So it gave UA an extra half hour to chat. The place seems like the real deal. I wish they had some cooked veggies, but I'm not not going back because my mother told me to ear more greens.

Submitted Saturday, January 24, 2015 - 7:29pm [Dine in]

I don't see my post from two years ago, but nothing has changed.
This place is on the way from where I was to home. And I'd I went drunk, and if this were not on the way, I'd never eat here again.
Poor service is the best that this place has to offer. The food is tasteless at best whilst there is always the same reaction to my system.. So I spend the next day in a stopper whilst fighting g my hangover on the way to the bathroom several times the next day. At least this meal Didnt have some other persons seconds of noodles like the last time. And the witch who too my order food me that they were all out of noodles so is rice alright? As seconds later she walks past me with a large bowl of noodles for the guy who came in after I did. The lying witch. The call it a noodle house my ass.
If your stupid you will eat here. If your drunk . you'll eat here, if you not drunk and not stupid, you must be punishing yourself for some reason. Please let this place die already, and be replaced with something better. Even a McDonalds would be better.

Jagerhof Schnitzel House71 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
Make Reservations or You`re Not Getting In
By mitchipoo of Westend (21 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, January 18, 2015 - 10:06pm [Dine in]

We took the seabus over just after Christmas to check out Jagerhof and were told that there were no tables available, on Sunday nights if you don`t have a reservation you`re out of luck. We decided to try again for my mom`s birthday. I made the reservation two weeks in advance to just to be on the safe side. Our reservation was for 5:30, we were seated immediately, the staff was very friendly and welcoming.

For starters we tried the escargot, rosti with trout and the charcuterie. All were delicious, the trout and rosti was lovely with a nice bit of mixed greens. The escargot were flavourful and well cooked. The charcuterie was very nice, could maybe have used a couple extra pieces of bread, there were three sliceso of each cheese (the cheese was amazing, so rich and creamy) and a prosciuotto and a dried beef with nice unsalted butter, gerkins and pickled onions. I would have been quite happy to have the charcuterie and a bowl of soup.

However, of course we each ordered schnitzel, three of us had the jagerhof schnitzel, my sister had the expo and someone tried the Thuringer bratwurst. The schnitzel was perfectly prepared, huge, almost covered the entire plate but lovely and thin and crisp. The mushroom sauce was served on the side as to not turn the schnitzel soggy. The panfried potatoes were very nice and the mixture of carrots, peas and leeks was delicious, very nicely done. The black forest cake is not prepared in the traditional style but was rich and delicious.

The decor is a bit over the top...I think they`re going for rustic german lodge feel, but it is also very homey and comfortable. I can`t praise the staff enough, so friendly and accommodating. We`ll be back for sure.

This is bread pudding?
By floodedsky of Vancouver (14 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, January 14, 2015 - 8:53pm [Dine in]

The table was dirty when I first sat down on my first dining experience at this little "restaurant." I mentioned it to the waitress. Why do they all insist on investigating it instead of just cleaning it? I had only just arrived and already I had been insulted. I wanted something small to eat and a cocktail. Unfortunately, all cocktails are doubles. On the waitress's advice, I ordered the bread pudding and a gingerale and vodka cocktail.

The bread pudding was unlike any other I have ever had. Sitting with a view of the kitchen and cook, I watched the cook cut a piece of chocolate cake into pieces that are too large to be comfortably bite-size. Then he dumped them in a deep fryer, where other foods have been fried and where they crisp up making them impossible to cut into bite-size pieces with a spoon, and then dumped them into a bowl. I was horrified as a I watched him do this. He drizzles caramel and chocolate sauce on top, adds ice cream, and that's it… bread pudding, sort of, but not really at all. The cake had an undefinable and unpalatable flavour - probably from the oil that had been used to deepfry fish, fries, onion rings… who knows what. For $10, I expected a more professional and palatable dessert.

The cocktail was very gingery… to the point of undrinkable.

I ate my entire dessert because I was starving. (I should have left it and requested a refund.) I left half of my $18 cocktail on the table. I told the waitress that I was unhappy with the dessert and the drink, but no offer was made by her to compensate me for anything.

The bill came to over $24. I won't go back.

Submitted Friday, January 2, 2015 - 2:53pm [Dine in]

I hadnt been into this venue for years after having a horrible meal, but returned recently as a guest at a banquet function. I was only there for my friends and anticipated the food to suck! But I was blown off my foodie feet by a FEAST fit for even the biggest north shore food snobs:) From a delicious prime rib carving station , to a perfectly done seafood pasta dish, chicken and so many side dishes i cant even remember them all AND desserts....oh the desserts:) There were young chefs/servers in all their finery standing behind buffet tables serving us , they were professional and very friendly. There was a head chef organizing and clearing and i was very impressed by it all as were the people who held the event at the Eagles club Banquet hall.

Yes, i have gone back to their pub and tried again! The food here is delicious and im so glad to have made it back to give the Eagles club a HUGE thumbs up.

The North Shore Culinary School partnered up with the Eagles back in June 2014 and the change has made all the difference in the world!

Definitely would organize and have a fully catered event here and will visit the pub for the great food and awesome drink prices....and their bartenders are super friendly too! The decor....not so much but hey, you cant always have it all.

Mooyah1431 Marine Drive, North Vancouver
Quality fast food
By EarlPearl of North Vancouver (69 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, December 31, 2014 - 10:20am [Dine in]

Mooyah is an American chain that specializes in quality burgers, fries and milkshakes at a premium price, similar to Veras, Fatburger and Manhattans. Ordering from the menu to construct your burger is quite complicated...like following a flow chart for assembling an Ikea desk so it takes a little getting used to. Three of us grabbed a booth for dinner and ordered burgers and fries at the counter with cups of free tap water. Bill was $43 which seems pretty steep for B&F but the quality of the grilled burgers and fries was excellent. If you like your burgers "your way", there are plenty of options on the menu to explore. We'll go back. Maybe try a milkshake next time.

I had been to Burgoo three times prior and didn't get the hype!! This time I was determined to order something which represented the restaurant that fans flock to. No more gluten free, sugar free whole food option for me, I was all in for a Kentucky Derby stodgy stew and I hit the jackpot! On the brunch menu the following was advertised;

BBQ Pork Potato Hash,
pulled pork, potato, spinach and roast garlic hash, baked with free run scrambled eggs and Cheddar, finished with our down home BBQ sauce

Two of us ordered this and swore it was the best thing we had eaten "EVER"!!!

It arrived sizzling hot in a cast iron fry pan with lovely thick cheese bubbling and oozing and INVITING. Loads of pulled pork in a very tasty house barbecue sauce, roasted garlic and fried potato hash, complete with scrambled eggs, more cheddar and spinach. Fabulous!!

Thai Yala Restaurant1925 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
Incredible Pad Thai
By Nahm Fon Somboon of west vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, December 13, 2014 - 8:12pm [Dine in]

Now, I am no food critic or anything of that sort but as a Thai-Canadian, I do believe I should be of some authority on this topic. Moreover, I've been a regular at this restaurant for over a decade now. I've eaten their Pad Thai more times than I can count, with varying spice levels and meat type selections over the years. But my all-time favourite is their chicken Pad Thai. It goes well with the rice noodles and tamarind sauce in the dish. AND the noodles aren't red or bright orange like the majority of Westernized Pad Thai I often see around. In fact, their Pad Thai more so resembles what actual Thai people in Thailand would make for themselves at home, which is the major reason why I keep coming back here. Now, their dish is much more expensive than it is priced in Bangkok, but what do you expect? The exotic ingredients obviously need to be imported, and that can be costly. That said, for a price of $9.99, it's definitely worth it.

Now that's a burger
By bordercollie of north vancouver (268 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, November 7, 2014 - 4:52pm [Dine in]

I've walked pass this place many times and decided I wanted to try this place and their burgers. This place wasn't busy on a Friday lunch time and understood why the burger took awhile to get to me.
I've never seen a burger bigger than my hands, stood tall and came with its on Knife. The actual burger was large topped with lettuce, tomatoes, onion rings with a nice fresh bun and side of fries. I decided to tackle this burger, but my mouth wasn't big enough and found it hard to get a good grasp without getting sauce on you, so dig in and use lots of napkins.
What took me so long to try this place, is beyond me, the meal was enourmous and had lots of flavour. When I want a burger I'm going there to have it, perfection to art and I'm still full after 5 hours.
I didn't have any room to eat dessert, being that full and content over a burger was super delicious.

Go there with an empty stomach. Hugh portions. I'll be back soon.

Submitted Thursday, November 6, 2014 - 5:32pm [Dine in]

We were just a small family of 5 living in East Vancouver. We found Maggie's Deli and we bought the business and in 3 months we transformed a small sandwich deli into a comfort little pho restaurant, called Pho Saigon. We opened November 3rd 2011. Through many challenges we've dealt through we've always kept it a family run restaurant. All staff were related to keep a family atmosphere at the restaurant. We've made long lasting relationships with costumers ranging from nurses, police officers, to families just on vacation looking for a quick bite to eat. We've always put passion and pride into our food. With every new batch of food we've made, we've always adjusted the recipe to find that perfect authentic taste of Vietnam, we're proud to say that we've found it. We've put our blood, sweat, tears, and everything we had in our restaurant. We closed in June 2014. We, as a family, as a team, would like to thank everyone for their support during our short 3 years in North Vancouver, we'll never forget the memories and the relationships that we've made here. Thank you. If you have any questions, please email [email protected]

Palki Restaurant116 East 15th St., North Vancouver
A Great Indian Supper for Three
By EarlPearl of North Vancouver (69 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, October 3, 2014 - 7:40pm [Dine in]

I always ignore reviews for restaurants based on lunch buffets...totally different experience from an a la carte dinner. Palki had some poor reviews largely based on lunch buffet experiences so we three decided to give Palki a try for dinner on a Friday night, being lovers of good Indian food and never having been to Palki before. The restaurant is nicely decorated, muted brown tones, a few Indian wall hangings with Indian bollywood music playing in the background. The aromas when you walk in the door are spicy and mouth-watering. So far so good. There were only a few other tables occupied so service was friendly and efficient provided by our two servers.

We started with two mango lassi’s and an IPA, then ordered 2 sides of tandoori naan, 2 bowls of basmati rice, lamb rogan josh, tandoori prawns, channa masala, and murgh vindaloo, all medium heat which turned out to be just right for us. All the food was excellent. The red tandoori prawns arrived sizzling with black char marks on an iron plate with a bed of seared onions. The lamb rogan josh and murgh vindaloo were very rich and well spiced and the sauces were nicely mopped up with their lovely tandoori grilled naan bread. Delicious. One of the best Indian meals we’ve had for a while and we’re already planning to visit again soon to try some more of their tandoori dishes.

Total bill was $96 including a nice tip for efficient service....we were out of there in just under an hour with a small doggy bag to fight over.

I've ordered from Mr. Pan probably around 10 times now. Each time I use the pamphlet they've mailed me to order. Each time I have to fight with them for the discount offered in the pamphlet as they try to raise the price every time.

Food shows up pretty quickly most of the time. Only once were we sitting waiting hungry a little too long.
Otherwise, food is exactly what you'd expect for the price. It's delicious, hot pizza covered in grease, but hey, that's how I like it.

If you don't want to spend too much but you still want a ton of pizza, this is a good option.

too old to waste my money at this pub
By dogsbreakfast of Vancouver (Dunbar) (3 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, September 22, 2014 - 12:38am [Dine in]

I'd been walking/hiking  all day. I was very tired, hungry, thirsty. So I stopped at the first place that I could sit down.  Ordered a hamburger with salad.
Not asked what I was drinking, so water will do.
The burger was 4 ounces of dry meat in a very old dry bun. The bun fell apart it was that old. I took a slice of the meat to see if it was as dry as it looked. It was; no flavour except for salt. I think it was a pre made patty that they froze. Or a cooked patty that they reheated in a pan. What ever it was, it was not worth the $12.00. That is twelve dollars after tax, so it makes this a twenty four dollar hockey puck.
I told my waitress; her reply, "I'm sorry" Really(?)

No, "I'm sorry, can I replace that with something else?" No, I'll speak with the chef and manager to see why, ( besides being cheep asses who don't care) and is there anything else that you would like instead?" Nope, just suck it up ass, eat what we give you, and don't forget to pay the full amount with a 20% tip. It's no longer going to let it slide. I'm no longer going to tip a waitress when the experience, attitude, meal are poor. (And please don't think that the waitress cannot be responsible for the food).  I'm sure if everyone stopped tipping for bad attitude and food, they'll soon hold a knife to the bxxxx of the cooks for not getting tipped because of the quality of the food.
And to top it off, as I was leaving she wished me a good night.........Dxxx! I'm still not sure how she knew my name is Dxxx...Hay!; it's not Dxxx

Okay - Not great
By VJB of abbotsford (171 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, September 21, 2014 - 10:08am [Dine in]

We had dinner here last night.
It is a nice cozy restaurant as others have mentioned. Tables are nicely spaced so you are not too close to other diners. A couple of tables had problems with the sun being right in their eyes while they were dining and the restaurant did not seem able to anything to rectify the situation. I found the menu very limited and for that reason alone I would not go back. The menu is almost all fish dishes with just a couple of other items on the menu. The server brought an order of bread to the table to share with just 2 small pieces of bread. We decided to start with an order of mussels in a tomato sauce. The first one I had was absolutely disgusting. It had gone bad. I said to my husband that he was on his own as I could absolutely not eat this dish. The first mussel that my husband had was pretty good but the second one he had was the same as mine. Definitely past it’s best before date. We called our server over and returned the dish. He offered to give us another but we declined. If 2 out of 3 mussels are bad what are the odds that the mussels in the kitchen are any better? We decided to share the curried squid instead. It was a generous serving and decent but I found the breading a little too heavy for my liking. My husband had the special of the day – halibut with a mango beurre blanc and vegetables. I had fish and chips. My husband really enjoyed his halibut. It was beautifully cooked and the sauce complimented it nicely. My fish and chips were a very generous serving but it came on such a small plate that it was impossible to cut the fish without getting food all over the table. Come on. Use a decent size plate. The fish inside was nice and moist but the batter had areas that were raw and not cooked. The chips are large and not the small fries that I like. They were not crispy on the outside and the inside was very mealy. We were 2 hours over dinner as the food was coming out of the kitchen very slowly.
We would not go back because I find the menu very limited and the food was just average.
