North Vancouver Restaurant Reviews
Sushi Nami Fusion Japanese Restaurant1315 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
What a Great find!
By Goodwrench of North Vancouver (40 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, August 30, 2011 - 8:49am [Dine in]

We stopped by here for dinner the other night. It's a new Restaurant, with banners and such outside saying Awards or something like that. So we figured why not?....

What a treat! The Decor inside was very nice and new. One thing though was sitting in the back, there was a bit of echo. They almost need something to soften up the interior. But, that's small details. We were greeted with a smile from everyone who worked there. Seated very quickly and served tea and drinks very quickly.

Ok, I'm the first to admit, I don't know anything about Sushi. But, this place was very good compared to everywhere else I've eat. The food was a fusion as they say. It wasn't the regular rolls and such, though they were availible. We started with Salmon Sashimi. It was great! Large Portions and very good. Sweet almost and didn't need any wassabi with it. We had a modified California Roll, suggested by our server. I forget the name of it, which is a shame, but, it had grilled Scallop bits on it. VERY GOOD. We also had this modified Dynamite Roll, which had this strange flaky crust, holy... was it every good. Lastly we had another roll with sliced salmon sashimi on top with salmon on the inside too. We had a egg plant yaki, which was egg plant, with chicken and scallops. I'm not an eggplant eater, don't care of seafood, but, I would've eaten that entire dish myself. My only complaint was the Spicey Chicken Kiragi, it was like Sweet and Sour Chicken Balls.

Caution to start, the rolls are very big. They come in a pretty hugh dish. We didn't finish them all, it was just too much. But, it's good, because, it's a really decent price for the kind food you get.

I would love to come back to this place. I think it's a great place to eat. I would recommend it to other people, but, I get the feeling that everyone else that eats there will probably do the same. I just hope it doesn't get so packed that I can't get a table anymore!

Aria Pizza & Donair112 West 12th Avenue, North Vancouver
Donair takeout...soon to be moving
By EarlPearl of North Vancouver (69 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, August 26, 2011 - 6:33pm [Take-out]

It's been ages since we've had a good donair. I remember reading on DineHere that Aria served great pizza but also had donairs and the owner was Greek. We've never tried either at Aria's and we were on our way home from Whistler so we thought we'd stop and pick up a couple to take home.
First thing I noticed when I walked in was a petition complaining about Aria's being kicked out at the end of August by the landlord to make room for a Fresh Slice. The obviously upset owner still eagerly filled our order while asking for our support. Of course....we need fewer chains and more owner operator stores to keep our takeout diversity.
We ordered two lamb donairs with everything (didn't know you could do that) and rushed them home for eating. Lamb in the donair was tasty, hot off the rotisserie and the pita was tender. The pita was also filled with lettuce and tsatziki which is more a gyro than a donair (we were expecting just onions and tomatoes). Tasted fine but the lettuce makes for a wet drippy wrap and it wasn't what we really wanted. Anyway....it's still been ages since we;ve had a good donair.

Great Lamb Shank
By cocoeater of vancouver (323 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, August 16, 2011 - 1:13pm [Dine in]

Went for lunch on a weekday and they are open at noon, versus 11:30 for most lunch places. Several types of kabobs to chose from but chose the lamb shank. It was very good and came with a great sauce which went well with the fluffy rice. Also came with a nice salad. At below $10, thought this was a good deal for lunch at a sit down restaurant. Yaas supermarket is up the street and they do a great kabob and lamb shank as well and cheaper but it is a more self serve style.

Nice new paint and decoration done on the former chinese restaurant and service was top notch. Will be back to try the kabobs which were enjoyed by my companions.

Bad Day?
By loyman of east Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, August 11, 2011 - 12:20am [Dine in]

Showed up for our 8pm reservation only to be told that they were behind schedule and had to wait an extra 30 minutes for our table. The restaurant is run by koreans, serving japanese food and background music was english. When the food and drinks came, we noticed that there were many fruit flies around our table. My date tried to kill them with her own hands throughout dinner. No staff in the restaurant seem to notice this. Food arrived shortly after we ordered and tasted good. After dinner, my date noticed that she was getting some kind of allergic reaction on her skin either to the food or wine we had. Will not probably go back there.

Anatoli Souvlaki5 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
A family owned Greek restaurant where you are treated like a special guest in their home!
By Kumiko Umeno of Vancouver (downtown) (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, August 10, 2011 - 4:32pm [Dine in]

I have been to Anatoli's in North Vancouver for both lunch and dinner. I always have an amazing time. The food is always great, the room is very warm and inviting, and the service is always top notch!

I often have the prawn souvlaki..which is incredible! I really like their greek salad...of course I enjoy the roasted potatoes, rice, and pita too...but i LOVE their greek salad!

Once my friend and I went for dinner after work and we were served by the owner, Alexi. He walked us through many courses, explaining the many Greek dishes to us while telling us about his family's home in Greece....we felt like we were special guests having dinner at his family home in Greece. A really wonderful and memorable dining experience!

I will continue to recommend and frequent Anatoli Souvlaki...Alexi and his family run a personable family business offering great, good value, Greek food. Check them out....they are great!

Honey Doughnuts and Goodies4373 Gallant Ave, North Vancouver
Overpriced Doughnuts
By HSMedia of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, August 8, 2011 - 7:10pm [Dine in]

I don't get whats all the commotion about this overpriced place. The customer service was hideous and I believe I was serviced by the two owners themselves. Being presented by the owners I would have believed to be treated with a tad of respect. They're also suppose to specialize in doughnuts but in fact they should rename them to grease balls. My friend and I endeavored separate items, I got the honey doughnut expecting it to be magnificent seeing as it was on the title of the restaurant but received the total opposite. I read the reviews here and people said to get them hot. As I insist I wanted a fresh one it was nothing but dripping oil with not a slight taste of honey on it but a giant piece of dough. My friend however got one of the muffins and instead of being soaked like my doughnut it was dry like a desert. I can not express the dissatisfaction about this place, without the upbringing the locals grant this place it would be out of business.

Red Burrito1455 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
Massive burritos!
By me_hungie of Marpole, Vancouver (33 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, August 8, 2011 - 1:22pm [Take-out]

I was quite impressed by my first visit to Red Burrito. Lots of options, and MASSIVE burritos! I was full for an entire day after downing one of those suckers. Definitely a decent value considering it felt like I had just purchased a concrete block.

Service was solid; I was waiting in line for a short while when someone from the back noticed and sprung into action to take my order. I'll definitely return when I need a quick gorging.

Fresh Slice1448 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
Not a big fan.
By me_hungie of Marpole, Vancouver (33 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, August 8, 2011 - 1:14pm [Dine in]

In my opinion Fresh Slice is average at best. Toppings are sparse, and while their pizza is often tasty, I view it as the fast food giant of the 'local' pizza industry. I feel kinda bad for badmouthing them, considering I've been guilty of eating their pizza quite a few times, but it's more out of convenience than anything. It's great that a small local company has become a large chain, but I'll stick to the places that remain small and local.

Great crust, better service!
By me_hungie of Marpole, Vancouver (33 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, August 8, 2011 - 1:06pm [Dine in]

DDDN likely has the best pizza crust I've ever had. It's not thin, but very light and not doughy at all. There is definitely cheaper pizza out there, but rarely is it as tasty. Great lunch special which is two slices and a plate of fries for around five bucks. Super friendly service; the lady running the place even brought my fries and ketchup to the table, along with a glass of ice water. I've never experienced such caring service in a comparable pizza joint. I'm looking forward to my second visit!

Great food, unbelievable value!
By The Living Bubba of New Westminister BC (4 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, August 8, 2011 - 12:04pm [Take-out]

This place was recommended by a co-worker. I now get my lunch here quite often. This deli & lunch/take out counter provides a variety of three entree choices daily. The choices, their flavours and related sauces are excellent. Rob & Ben are informative, everyone's friendly. As to the food, you'd pay twice as much for less at many restaurants. Since it's in Lonsdale Quay, ask for a plate & get a nearby table in the rather spartan nearby dining area or sit outside and enjoy the view! You DO have to return your dishes and cutlery, but that's a small price to pay.

First & Last Time
By August Lion of New Westminester, BC (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, August 7, 2011 - 9:50pm [Dine in]

On our way to pick our daughter from the ferry. Decided to stop in for dinner. Heard of it before and looked forward to givin it a try. The ambiance was quite interesting, as the outer building looked like a rangers building you would find in a provincial park. We decided to sit out on the patio.

We both order the sirloin burgers with mushrooms, bacon, and swiss. When I first read the menu it said sirloin burgers $12.99. So when I got a processed hamburger patty that I could have picked up at cosco I was seriously diasapointed. The other part of this was it was scorched a bit and dry as a bone- clearly overcooked. When I go out for a sirloin burger, I expect a home made patty that is moist and juicy. This burger was no better than a monthly promotion at A&W.

My wife had a sleeve of Rickards white and when I saw the bill, I couldn't believe they charged me $6. Anywhere else in the lower mainland this beer is $6 for a pint.

In my opinion this place takes advantage of the "comfortably" off people in the neighborhood and over charges their product and don't follow it up with quality.

Unfortunately we will never be back. Too bad cause the menu was small, but in concept, was a little more intersting than your average pub. Unfortunately the kitchen failed to produce.
