I was around North Vancouver and decided to try this place out, I was expecting somthing less however found this place to be very good. The price was incredible, 3 of us were there and the bill priced to be $30.00 and we were stuffed. Ordered a special roll and tempura udon and some other dishes, the mangodise roll was awesome and the service was good, it was pretty busy but the service was good. If your looking for a decent sushi around North Van for a affordable price definetly a place to visit

Yama Sushi1232 Ross Road, North Vancouver
Great place in the valley

This is definitely a favourite place to go when looking for sushi at a reasonable price close to home. The tempura is quite good, and the rolls are well made. The rice bowls are really hit or miss. I often get the teriyaki chicken rice bowl and when it's good, it's really good - but when it's bad, well it gets hard to finish. Overall it's a great restaurant with many more positives than negatives. Often is really busy at lunch time due to Argyle Secondary which is nearby so I'd recommend takeout.

A great neighbourhood restaurant

Great service. Friendly staff. Smiles everywhere. Great rolls. Fresh sashimi. Light and crispy tempura. What more can you ask for? My favourite place to go when I'm craving sushi, just a 2 minute walk from Lynn Valley Centre. The owners seem to enjoy their job and will always serve you with a smile. The extra small things they do for their customers makes this place a local favourite. Free refills on tea and sometimes even on miso soup. i went in for a pick up once and i had a cold, the server gave me 2 bowls of miso on the house along with a "hope you feel better soon" note on the bag, and i wasn't even a regular customer at the time. Highly recommend.

District, The13 Lonsdale, North Vancouver
We'll be back

Submitted Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 1:45pm [Dine in]

My friends and I really enjoyed our last visit to The District. I'm glad we made a reservation as the place was packed when we arrived.
Our server was great and provided some yummy recommendations, most of which we tried.
We each picked an appetizer to share, I really enjoyed the cheese and meat selection and the warm beet salad. For my entree I took a chance and got the Bacon and Blue Cheese Mussels and I was very impressed. We almost skipped dessert but were told we have to try the Thomas Haas Chocolate Souffle, oh my goodness it was a little piece of heaven on a plate.
Our overall experience was a treat. Our server did a really good job, the food was great, the wine was yummy and we will definitely be back.

bad manners and bad service

Anywhere else this cafe would not survive. First off I ordered 2 double espressos and got them in paper cups. When I asked for real cups I was told they are too busy to wash dishes. More like lazy seeing as there were no customers behind me waiting for service. At $2.85 an espresso it's nice to have a real cup. Then the barrister talked and mumbled so fast I could barely understand him, when I ordered an americano and a frappe and he asked what kind of milk. Don't cafes normally specify if you want a soy or milk frappe on the menu? I will not be going back and hopefully Deep Cove gets some more coffee places as I am sure they would do well when this place seems to be your only choice. Also rude and impatient when you didn't understand his quick mumbling.

Great food, great service, lovely drinks!
They have the best no-bake cheesecake I have ever had.
DJ's on the weekends turn this little place into a great late night hang-out as well.
I haven't tried the brunch on the weekends but I hear it is also amazing. You are guaranteed to get an wonderful meal and service to match.

This place does have a great patio BUT you sure don't get what you pay for. My $17 salad would have been enough if I ordered three our four of them. The Ceasars were $11 and not that special. The service was terrible. Everything took a long time and one of our drinks never came but they made sure to put it on our bill. We will not be going there again.

Terrible Twice
By DR54 of North Vancouver, B.C, Canada (4 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, June 3, 2013 - 11:27am [Dine in]

This place is very close to our house so we decided to try it out. We gave it two chances since we didn't eat much the first time -just ordered one Special Roll, some Nigiri and a Tuna Gomae. The roll was alright but the Gomae was terrible. It was swimming in gritty sauce almost like a soup and the tuna didn't taste very fresh.
The second time we tried this place we ordered a bunch of different things, one of them being Prawn Gyoza. The Gyoza came first. I think they cooked it earlier then just microwaved it. It was disgusting. We ended up letting our waitress know and told her to cancel everything.

Watch out for the on-line order option
By EarlPearl of North Vancouver (69 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, June 2, 2013 - 9:59pm [Take-out]

We wanted to get an ice cream cake for a special birthday boy who always says he loves the ice cream from the MSC so we went on line to check out their offerings. They have an on-line ordering option to get a cake if you place an order at least 24hrs in advance so we ordered a cake with a birthday message Friday night for pickup on Sunday afternoon. A small cake looked about right for the 6 of us so we placed the order on-line and got a confirmation email soon after.

The email says the store will call to confirm our order and if we didn't hear from them, to give the store a call. We didn't get a call back, so Sunday morning we called the store and the girl on the phone said there was no order on file. Yikes! So I asked if they at least had the type of cake we wanted and she said they had 2 in the freezer.

So off we go to get the cake and it turns out they didn't have the type of cake we wanted after all (mis-labelled or something like that). So we selected a strawberry cheesecake from the few small cakes they had left and they wrote a birthday message on it right there. So far, not impressed with the on-line ordering. The store seems to be manned by teenagers and I'm not going to give them a hard time for something best brought to the attention of a manager or the head office so we gathered up the cake and headed home.

We were very impressed with the cake...everyone loved it and it was just right for 6 people. Next time though, I'll skip the on-line ordering and call the store directly and pick it up a day in advance to be sure.

Now where's that head office email address...........

Pay through the nose for lousy service and bad food - avoid!
By verily of west van (10 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, June 1, 2013 - 2:40pm [Dine in]

With very little choice in this butt of North Van location, I ate breakfast here and will certainly never make the same mistake again. The shack like building is not particularly inviting and the sour faced server with an overdose of bad attitude was nowhere to be seen until I sat down at a table she made it obvious she didn't want me to take, then slammed the menu down on the table and went to the other end of the restaurant to play with her phone. Eventually took my order for BC Bene which came quickly but was uneatable - the salmon smelt and tasted rancid, poached eggs were undercooked to the point of being nearly raw, and the hollandaise sauce had a strange taste and globular appearance - dreadful, and undoubtedly the worst breakfast I have ever encountered, also expensive at over $20. I've eaten in other De Dutch restaurants before and enjoyed the food but this North Van location is really the pits.

Little Tokyo Japanese Restaurant152 Chadiwick Court, North Vancouver
New management
By Bokchewy of North Vancouver (7 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, May 26, 2013 - 12:55am [Dine in]

Little Tokyo has to be one of the best affordable sushi restaurants in north vancouver. I noticed a lot of negative reviews, but the restaurant is now under new management and has done a complete 180. The restaurant itself is small, but very clean and comfortable. When the weather is nice, outdoor seating is available.
The service was great, a very lovely couple run the place who are always greeting you with a smile.
I have tried the assorted sashimi and a variety of rolls from here. The sashimi was very fresh, just melts in your mouth. The rolls very also very good. The rice wasn't at all hard or frozen, which is often a problem at many small sushi restaurants, and the rolls were very nicely made and portioned.
Overall a great place to go when in north van and looking for a reasonably priced sushi restaurant!

A Great Meal

Last week my wife & I went to Palki for dinner. We had eaten there fairly often previously and always enjoyed the food. This time we were reading the menu to try something different. Perriera was taking care of us and he asked a few questions of our likes. He said to leave the choice with him and he will ensure that we enjoyed the meal. He served us, amongst other, "Lamb Methi" which was not even on the menu. It was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Only suggestion is to space the meal between servings! Thank you Palki - Keep up the great food!

I tried their 3rd and lonsdale location few days ago with my friends
And I was hopping to get the same taste at Pemberton , I was very very surprised
Of their quality and consistency of the food and service . They also offered me
Free drink at this location. I tried the spicy chicken with green devil sauce which is a spicy cilantro
Sauce and they make it in the store , it's a totally unique taste.
And every time I have their coleslaw in my sandwich is very fresh. They certenly go out of their way to
Make great selection of sandwiches . I also bought the popular pulled pork for my wife. Once she tried the sandwich, she had to call them and thank Basils sub for her meal.
I hope to see more restaurant try to keep their quality high, and bring new taste to their menu.

Some Broken DNA at this Location

We do not give up easy so we tried it again, only to be dissapointed again. There was lots of staff on location but the service was slow and did not make sense. The pop was flat. The food came out at different times. The table set up with hap hazard. The restaurant was dirty. And the prices are high. For the past 15 years or so, something has always been wrong with this location. It seems as if that the attitude there is that they just dont give a dam. They rely on sports teams and families on the weekends and could care less about overall service. We will try again in another few years and post an update.

I love to go to a restaurant that make quality food with super fast service.
Usually we have to wait 20 min for our food to be ready at any sushi place . But not this place
Your soup is on your table within 5 min and so as your sashimi .
Also their teriyaki dishes are prepared mush faster than other sushi places I have been too
Over all a very satisfying experience

We went with 2 of my friends last Friday to this location.
There seems to be a new ownership at this location with new staff
And much better food and service than before. i tried their food once before.
We decided to try their sandwiches.
We are very glad we did .. Amazing .. Amazing sandwiches, nothing like you had before.
I tried their spicy chicken wrap with coleslaw and their specialty sauce, topped with veggies
OMG what a taste , I am craving it as I am writing this review.
My friend had the polled pork sandwich on ciabatta bread.
He was just enjoying every bite..
We were also given free samples of other sandwiches
Plus they offered us all free drinks, which we never expected.
We are going back with more friends next week.
And I will take some pictures and do another review.

Pricey Place to Eat
By poorestoliver of Vancouver (24 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, May 17, 2013 - 2:38pm [Dine in]

This place has gone through its fair share of ups and downs. The prices have slowly creeped up and up as they have decided to cater more towards tourists. In the past we were greeted by grim looking staff at the front door that acted as if we were a bother. We have lived on the North Shore for many years and this was not just our experience, it was the experience of many others. Today we were greeted by cheery staff with friendly smiles. We got good seats but that is about it. The lunch menu is very limited and pricey. As an example, a small bowl of mussles is now about 23 dollars not including tip. 3 small pieces of cheese and a few crackers is about 18 dollars without tip. If you don't believe, check the menu. The sandwiches have grown smaller over the years, although still tasty. The service was real slow. The best thing about today was the staff so that is an improvement. We will check back again in another few months and provide another update. I do not think they can last much longer with the smaller sized meals, the limited selection and the expensive price points. Will see.

Portly Chef, The1211 Lonsdale, North Vancouver
Acceptable food, but rather bland.
By redfish of Richmond (23 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 8:55pm [Dine in]

Had somewhat high expectations for this place and left rather disappointed. Wild mushrooms with chevre had lots of sauce and oil, lacked in flavour and there was no salt or grind of pepper. There was NO puff pastry, as advertised, but was told that the tiny cheese crisp on top was puff pastry. It was not. Since the 2 tiny crostini did not even begin to suffice for the sauce I asked for made bread. Given 2 more tiny pieces of crostini...and not that willingly either. Kitchen was accomodating in serving us bouillabaise from the dinner menu; that came with bread...so they did have some on the premises after all! Plenty of seafood, also lots of potatoes and again, bland with no offer of pepper etc. I find that somewhat presumptuous, as some people like a little spice!
Decor is pleasant and maybe dinner is better, but I for one will not be rushing back.

So the cashier had difficulty with my order...one fires, one poutine to go. As the line built up as he tried to get the order correct, he asked me if it was ok if he took the others first. I said 'fine', and went to wait for my order and my change. About 10 minutes later, I get a nickel back instead of the $10.05 I should have. The cashier said, no I gave him a $10, I know I gave him a $20. I figure writing this up and posting it is worth ten dollars to me, so here it is. Obviously, I won't be back.

Honey Doughnuts and Goodies4373 Gallant Ave, North Vancouver
cementitious muffin, delicious gluten-free bagel
By harbinger of North Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, April 29, 2013 - 7:19pm [Dine in]

It was 7AM and the server was already grumpy. I glanced into the kitchen and the kitchen staff seemed no happier. If this was a sign for the rest of the day, I felt apprehension for patrons arriving later.

I tried one of the muffins and it was cementitious: heavy, dense, dry, unleavened, coarse. A large coffee was not enough to slake the muffin. The muffin had healthy ingredients; but it wasn't palatable.

My friend had a gluten-free bagel with bacon and cheese and said it was so delicious, she could have eaten two.

The main storefront of Honey Doughnuts is visually interesting with lots of charm; however, ambience can never make a lumpy muffin edible.
