Worst Pulled Pork Sandwich Ever
By mememe of Vancouver (2 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, December 11, 2012 - 8:56pm [Take-out]

Wont be ordering from there again anytime soon....

The food was horrible...honestly horrible. I love a good pulled pork sandwich so couldn't resist when i saw it on the menu. Unfortunately it now goes down as the worst one ever! Overall the meat was dry with little to no sauce on it... but there were also patches of 'meat' that were slabs of fat rather than pork. The bun was saturated from the butter? they slathered on...horrible!

i then moved on to the fries which were cold, hard and doused in a flavoured salt...i managed to get down 2 of them before discarding the lot...

regardless to say - if my meal is any indication of the rest of the menu, you might want to give this place a miss!

How many fake reviews is this clown going to post? Every week a fake post is posted in ESL English. The bakery food now doesn't make you fat and is most delicious. I would never go there because he is such a goof. Stay away. Any reviewer who seems to have only one post is often fake as are the ones for this place.

Cheap but Good Chinese food
By PointGreyGirl of Vancouver (5 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, December 9, 2012 - 5:32pm [Dine in]

We've driven by this restaurant before and never knew it existed. Finally tried it for lunch today and was pleasantly surprised. Nothing elegant about this restaurant and it is a bit dated, but if you want cheap and good eats and craving Chinese food, give this a try. Much better priced and tastier than Westview Chinese restaurant, but nothing compared to higher end Kirin. Good value if you just want to stay on the North Shore.

I tried a wrap from this food truck on Robson called Cazbah Express. They have a few simple choices. Three kabab wraps available: koobideh (beef) $5, joojeh (chicken) $6, and barg (steak) $7. I had the koobideh. It was very good spicy meat. But i wish it had a little more meat. The wrap in total seemed to be lacking volume compared to some other wraps along the same corridor. But it was good and very tasty. I would try it again.

Worth the visit
By TomTom of North Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, December 4, 2012 - 9:54am [Dine in]

I recently dined here twice and both times it was well worth it. My first visit with my daughter we ordered two dishes plus rice, and I had enough left over to take home for a decent sized meal the next day. We ordered a Pad Thai and a chicken curry bowl and they were both delicious, and delivered fast! The service was attentive and friendly, and the restaurant was clean. Compared to other ethnic restaurants in North Vancouver I would say it is good value for the money considering the food quality is high.

Submitted Thursday, November 29, 2012 - 2:11am [Dine in]

Contrary to what the person below me has described the restaurant that serves "crappy food", my first experience at this restaurant was quite splendid to say the very least.

Since my parents and I were strapped for time, but were in the neighbourhood, we decided to try out this place. Although it was my first time eating here, my dad has been here several times; he would always praise the excellent service, friendliness, cleanliness, and of course, the food.

So we ordered about twenty pieces each of salmon and tuna, as well as some other bits of fancier nigiri sushi such as toro. I had to say that it was quite possibly the freshest and best tasting raw fish I've had in a long time. The pieces were very large, which is what I like in nigiri, and there was a good amount of rice so that it didn't seem like a filler, but it was substantial enough to make it a good piece of nigiri. We also ordered other pieces such as saba, which was mainly for me (it was really good, too), and my father ordered ika and tobiko for himself.

In addition to that, we ordered some futomaki, which was delicious

Our service was really good, too. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly, and looked after our needs in a timely and friendly manner; one of the best I've ever experienced! The chef was also very nice, too; we got to talk to him for a while after our meal.

Whether or not you're in the neighbourhood, I'd recommend this restaurant for anyone who is craving for authentic Japanese cuisine at a very fair price, with excellent service as a great bonus.

Don't believe all reviews.

I was trying to find a good sushi place here on the north shore so I don't have to drive all the way to Commercial and got totally suckered into trying this place for lunch based on the good reviews here. 4.5 stars. Yeah right. Very slow, unorganized service and crappy food. I had a negitoro roll - NOT the greatest. Ultra greasy tempura (4 pcs)that I didn't finish. Then along came a complimentary bowl of cold watery miso soup. One sip was enough. Normally miso soup is served first and its usually heated. Apparently not here. I also ordered a dynamite roll. One piece was all I could handle. The worst dynamite roll I've ever had. The couple next to me had to ask for wasabi to go with their sushi. They waited and waited some more, then finally got up and got it from the kitchen themselves. Paid my $15 bill and left without tipping.

Their Kimchee is an act of against Korea!

We had ordered 2 Noodle boxes for take out lunch, our first time. With 2 drinks it cost $30.00 The value for the noodles is way to expensive when compared to a sit down Chinese restaurant. With regards to quality and portions.
Taste of the noodles is not bad, but the so called Kimchee side dish was not only horrible. It's an Act of War against North & South Korea, it just tasted really awful! No where near Kimchee would taste like & the cabbage was cooked (which is not supposed to be) to a point you can read the Vancouver Sun through it! Given that you can buy this stuff ready made at any T&T market. Did anyone in that organization taste tested this crap before serving it to the customer?

Fast but nothing special
By EarlPearl of North Vancouver (69 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, November 18, 2012 - 6:33pm [Take-out]

We were in the area, eyeing the new Swiss chicken place for dinner, when we spotted the Wok Box, browsed their menu and decided to grab some take out and head home as the rain fell. Stir fries on rice and noodles sounded appealing and the four of us were hungry so we ordered a 4-6 person feast with 4 boxes, 6 spring rolls and an order of green onion cakes. The Butter Chicken on rice box was pretty good, a mild butter sauce with lots of chicken. The Singapore cashew chicken box on noodles was my son's favorite though it was more of a peanut box than cashew. Wife tried the teriyaki beef on hokkien noodles and declared it swimming in starchy sauce; clearly the worst box of the set according to her. My beef DAN DAN on hokkien noodles was good but extremely spicy, even without the hot chili sauce they give you on the side. Which is saying something because I can handle pretty hot foods. The green onion cakes were just doughy sides, nothing appealing. The damage was $48 after tax. Not a cheap take out meal. Overall we probably won't go back; it wasn't bad but I think we'd prefer ordering a few Szechuan dishes from a local chinese establishment for a quick and cheaper takeout feast. But I give them full marks for cranking out the food quickly.

Like a Trip to Heaven, Nirvana, and Paradise, All Rolled Into One

You walk into this place, and I swear to God angels from heaven greet you, and stuff your face with all sorts of ambrosial delicacies.Beautiful music is playing, and the smell from the kitchen is intoxicating. A swarthy gentleman in a baker's cap levitates towards you suddenly in a cloud that reminds you of dry ice. There is a peaceful smile on his face, and he is looking at you with affection. A friendly person appears at the counter, the angels fade away, the baker floats back to his ovens, and you get down to business, and decide what to order. Everything looks so delicious. My advice is to bring lots of money here, and buy buy buy. Then just live on Golestan products for the next week. Eat nothing else. They have magical healing powers.

Submitted Saturday, November 17, 2012 - 1:25am [Delivery]

I call to point out that they missed a $5 item in my delivery. When they came back, 45 min later, I have a note on my food..."I know I made this and you got it from the driver. Don't try this again. The Cook."
Pretty insulting to get this after they made the mistake... When calling to complain about the note on the food that I won't eat (would you?) I was told to calm down "lady" when not yelling, just asking why!

Server had attitude; but food great

Took a friend out to lunch to a favourite spot. Usually the servers are great, but today the young lady had an attitude problem. Not friendly like the usual ones, brusk and gave us our bill before asking if we wanted dessert which I was hoping to order. So when it came time to tip, it was reflected in the service that was received. That aside, the food was great and the portions substational.

Our group of friends ordered delivery on Halloween night. The server who answered the phone giggled for no reason when I placed our order, and she said the order would be delivered in 45 minutes. About an hour later, a youngish man delivered our order and we paid by credit card. After I entered my PIN he close to squealed, "no tip?!" I didn't hear him correctly and thought he said, "no chip". But when I realised he was taking an issue at us not leaving a tip for the tardy delivery at first I'd just let it go and I thanked him after the transaction went through. However, as he left he turned around and shouted an obscene word and I didn't know at that time how to react as I did not expect that after such a tardy delivery. With the ungraciousness from the restaurant's server and delivery personnel, however, I knew I would not be patronising the place again :(

Sorry, but this address is for a Chinese Noodle restaurant...Cazba is actually on 16th just off Lonsdale about 1/2 a block. The food was great, thank goodness our friends were already there and were able to direct us to the restaurant because I had relied on this site, oops. The saffron ice cream was a great finish!

We went here because we thought it was OceanWise and thus would be good. It was not OceanWise or good. They said the salmon was wild, but not in the BC roll... huh? The veggie gyozas were suspect (what was in there?), the yam tempura only satisfactory. The spicy tuna was a mushy mess. We didn't finish it. Veggie roll was the only thing I enjoyed. :0( We ended up getting a yam roll just because it was a "safe bet" to fill up, and it was only eadible. The rice on all was too mushy for my tastes.

Hoping we'll find something better on the North shore!

Not sure what happened to this place as they started out to be quite good. The last few times I've gone the food has not been at all good. The miso soup is YUCK. I'm not sure but it tastes like its some animal type broth.. The rice is no longer right. It's very cold and tasteless and the rolls were falling apart. Spicy age dashi tofu had a large amount of presidents choice Memories of Thailand spicy chili sauce dumped on top. Not a good combination at all. May work on Thai food but this is supposed to be Japanese. They seem to have changed from quality first to quantity first. Just because you make the rolls really big doesn't mean they taste better. On a positive note the fish did taste fresh. Won't be back.

In North Van for a soccer tourney, dined out on a Sunday night for Thanksgiving dinner. Thanksgiving dinner special,ordered by wife & I and kids had burger & chicken strips. Food was good, value was good, service was average, even though not busy when we arrived (6pm). Place filled up after that. Nice atmosphere, excellent view.
Would go back & recommend to others, looking for good food, good value, family option.

Major Disappointment!
By nicholed of North Shore (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, October 8, 2012 - 1:28pm [Dine in]

What a waste of the waterfront!!! This is the worst restaurant that I have been to in this "class" of restaurant for many a moon! Only in Vancouver could one find such a rip-off eatery on the waterfront and one that charges such exorbitant prices for inferior food. I can hardly wait to see them go under and a restaurateur take over the space that really does justice to the location and provides value for the price (lower prices would be great as well!). The major disappointment was the calamari. Seems like they have had other complaints about this dish and done nothing about it. The cost $14.00.... the serving pitiful (small salad plate and more peanuts than calamari!). A Louie salad was also a disappointment (18.00). It was mostly greens, a smattering of lobster and pretty much tasteless. I will be spreading the word and will never set foot in the place again while under current management.
