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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
We've tapped into Sushi Day a few times now for takeout....it's only a few blocks from home and parking is always easy at Park & Tilford. Today we got three combos to share (assorted tuna/salmon and california/dynamite rolls, and assorted nigiri). It was 5pm and not very busy yet so the wait was about 20 minutes...lots of time for a nice stroll through the gardens with confidence the sushi is freshly made. Nothing startling on the menu if you're a sushi fan, just decent priced sushi to satisfy your craving. The restaurant is small and has one table for four and 5 tables for two so they focus on takeout and seem to do it well.
It was a sunny Friday (finally) and we thought picking up some takeout to eat at Cates Park would be a summertime treat. Fish and chips are perfect park fare so we swung by the Dollarton Crab Shop on the way. We haven't been to their new store since the old one burned down. It was 5 pm and there were only a couple other customers there so we ordered quickly. Waited about 15 minutes for our order which is a good sign meaning everything was being cooked fresh. We order the 6 piece cod family pack because we were very hungry having skipped lunch and it was only $2 more than a couple of 2 piece dinners. Boxed up and wrapped in newspaper, we collected our food and headed for the door. If you're doing takeout to the park, you'll need to unwrap and salt your F&C before you leave or shake some salt into a knapkin to bring with you like we did. The shop supplies tartar sauce in a baggie and you can collect pouches of ketchup and vinegar and lemon slices from the counters.
10 minutes later we were in Cates at a picnic table eagerly unwrapping our F&C. One box was stuffed full of fries and one with 6 good sized pieces of battered cod. Fries were tasty but not very crisp; perhaps they are better fresh at the shop and don't travel well. Fairly oily we thought. The fish was tasty but the batter was fairly chewy and not very crisp; the cod inside was delicious but the batter was a bit disappointing. Perhaps it also doesn't travel well. A lot of oil leaked out of the boxes onto the newspaper and our general impression was that although the flavours are there, we prefer the less greasy and more crispy F&C we can get at other shops in N. Van.
