I don't normally go out of my way to write a review of restaurants, but this place hit a high note with me.
The food selection leaves your mouth watering for every item they carry, and when you finally do decide upon a meal, you are left with nothing but satisfaction.
The food leaves you wanting to finish the HEAPING servings of everything, because it is just SO delicious.
The service was pretty solid, but the food will be what keeps me coming back for more.
It's so delicious. The portions are large and the food tastes incredible. Our favourites include ginger beef, thai chicken, chicken chow mein. Both the dinner and lunch menus are impressive. If you are looking for good food that is cheap with large portions and don't care for ambiance, go here.
My husband and I have driven past All Thia'd up for more than sometime. We have always said we wanted to try it but have our "favorite" resturants we love to indulge in. My husband was top of his class in the Culinary Program at Malaspina College, Nanaimo, BC. WE LOVE TO EAT!! More importantly, we have a passion for trying new foods and resturants. Like any couple we get tired of ordering the same old thing.
Tonight, we ordered out from All Thai'd Up! (Firday night). After reading the negative reviews I was hesitant because I HATE TO BE DISSAPOINTED! We decided to order our food to go, we were told on the phone it was a 25 minute wait and that is exactly what it was! It was not that busy in the actual resturant, but my husband said it sounded busy when he called in the order. The host was nice and polite and made the transaction smooth. We ordered the Gaeng Dang: Red Curry #18 and Satay #1 and one Rice Pilaf because it had such praise by all reviewers. It was phenomenal! The Red Curry dish was awesome, we ordered two, one for each of us and it was very spicy dispite it being medium spiced, but as you eat it gets less spicy? (I was worried it would'nt be hot enough)....Needless to say it was perfect! Be prepared though, it is very spicy (make sure you order the rice with it). The satay was great! Yes, the peanut sauce was thick but it was yummy; and was a perfect match with the spicyness of the Curry. The portions were great we filled up on what we ordered and we both didn't finish.......Untill later that night;) Our bill was $38.00. I know what everyone is thinking maybe the owner is writing these good reviews. I am here to tell you that this is a real review. I was very extactic about the food. I used to eat Thai all the time and my husband and I have eaten at Go Thai in New West. THIS PLACE IS MUCH BETTER! WE WERE VERY IMPRESSED!!! YUM. We will be there again All Thai'd Up;) O and BTW the inside of the restaruant was CUTE and COZY! Not sketchy, or run down at all!
These ones in Safeway are nto really Starbucks. They don't take some of the coupons etc as the regular ones. Plus the staff is obviously not real Starbucks staff. Never friendly. Ambiance sucks , it's at the front door of a Safeway. Good in a pinch and you can snag their wifi from the Safeyway parking lot - bonus.
I really like this Starbucks. It's an odd shape and has only a few tables and a counter, plus parking can be a pain.
BUT it's the people here that make the difference. There never is a hassle about anything. ANYTHING you want is fine. They all seem to be long term employees and are happy. They know their stuff and ask if you want the extra shot instead of chucking it.
One of my top 5 fav starbucks in the world.
Outstanding restaurant, just Wow ! Mostly amazed by the creativity of the chef, not only by unexpected surprises when you put a piece into your mouth, but also by his artistic presentations that beautifully entertain your eyes...imagine what kind of harmonious surprises Strawberry Sass Roll (one of sushi rolls we tried tonight) would produce in your mouth. I also liked the modest atmosphere of the restaurant; unlike other noisy Izakayas that waiters are trained to shout out "irasshaimase" whenever customers come in and out, SS101 provides mature mood by simply quietly smiling back to customers. : ) And when we got the bill at the end of the dinner, another Wow ! Definitely SS101 became one of my favorite restaurants, I am sure will visit again soon.
Dinakis is a great restaurant, with lots of selection in their menu. We've been a handful of times and each time their service has been impeccable. I recommend this restaurant to everyone!
The only flaw that I've seen is their Caesar salad once, and they made it to 'soupy'. The romaine lettuce was drowning. They were kind enough to try again and made an adjustment to our bill in the end.
I past by Shaughnessy street couple days ago and saw Sang Thai with a "Grand Opening" sign. I asked my friend if he wanted to try out tonight and now both of us loved the place. The interior looks great and comfortable. I ordered Pad Thai which I always order when I'm eating at Thai restaurant and red curry chicken. Both dishes are big portion and taste good! I love the red curry even it was little too hot for me. We used to go to Chada Thai when we crave Thai food, but they are too pricy. Now I have new place to go.
This place is excellent I used to be a frequent customer of donair affair just down the street which is awful. This new donair town blows the other place out of the water.
-Food is fresh and better seasoned
-The entire restaurant is clean, well lit, and inviting
- The staff is very friendly.
When ordering I spoke with the gentleman preparing my donair, he happened to be the owner. This is the original founder of the donair affair that is popular in Port Coquitlam just down the street by 7-11. Since it has been sold to the new owners it has gone way downhill in food quality, cleanliness and the staff was never friendly.
I am so happy that the original donair town is back!
I was a donair affair regular, the food was consistently good and the value was great, the place then got sold to new owners. The staff is unfriendly and un talkative the donairs are sometimes great and sometimes not and the ceaser salads are always wilted. One of my biggest pet peeves about the place is their consistent overcharging. You will order a donair and then they will ask if you want everything on it and when you say yes they add cheese to it which they charge extra for not reflected in the menu sign. I don’t complain when this happens, I’m just happy that they did not overcharge me by $3-4 which occasionally happens as well.
The place to go is donair town which is on shaugnessy right before the underpass, this place is owned by the original owner of donair affair before it was sold, when it was still good. I went in there for the first time today and will never ever go back to the old place by 7-11. The meat is seasoned better, the owner Sam serves you himself or his lovely wife and they are both very pleasant and inviting. The food was very fresh and the entire place from food prep area to seating was much cleaner.
I am so happy I now have my old donair town back just around the corner.
A nice family place for brekkie - portions are okay and so is the taste. Good for fun occasions if you've never been before. I remember one of the older locations that used to be on Main & Terminal. It was a weekend treat for my Aunt & Uncle to take us for a yummy breakfast. That place always brings back fond memories. It's nice to have one close to home now. =) Much better than IHOP.
Do not trust the price that you pay!!! make sure you calculate your own price. First person charged me $8 more than it should be. He told me it's the tax, of course it doesn't make sense. The second person re- calculated and still charged me $1 more, so be careful. Whatever you pay..please calculate it again. Other than that the food is outstanding like all the other reviewers said.
Been passing by this place everyday for the longest time but never really thought to try it. Finally decided to go there with my family and my husband and I were quite pleasantly surprised. Friendly service, although there was a little language barrier (the owner/server doesn't really speak fluent English). Nonetheless, the service was warm and attentive.
The selection was good and the prices were very reasonable. The pho that we ordered was as expected, noodles cooked nicely, very flavourful broth. However, the spring rolls that we ordered were all a little burnt and a little hard to eat.
Good experience, will definitely be back.
This place was great as Empire Pizza. You always wonder how these Greek cluttery restaurants are cleaned but I turned a blind eye. I was here a few years ago and remember liking it. The pizzas is just like I remember as a kid, thick crust cheesy pizzas froma pizza/steak/lobster joint. They still looked good.
The issue is the Greek food. I always have a spanikopita platter at a Greek joint. This one was good, but the spanikpita was so tiny. At $7.95 for an appetizer I would have felt ripped off. However, to turn the same portion into a "platter" by adding 1 pice of bread, a thimble of tzatziki and cheap rice and potatoes and then adding $9 to the $7.95 is Outrageous highway robbery. Especially in this location. Poco's fine but this place has no view except another pizza place across the street. $16.95! then add tip and HST, I'm sorry I felt Hosed. Lower your prices or you'll be gone.
Wife and I decide to try out the restaurant but left feeling rather disappointed. Ordered the Beef and veggie crispy chow mein and my initial impression is that it was too salty and the noodles were soggy. The other dish we ordered was a tofu dish that was very heavy on the black pepper and the flavours didn't quite blend together. We ordered the same dish from other chinese restaurant in the past and the food from this place didn't measure up.
This is an amazing restaurant. The food is great & so is the presentation. I was absolutely shocked with how good the food was. It is a tiny little whole in the wall and very hard to find. I really wasn't expecting much. My friends had recommended this place to me. I went with one of my girlfriends & we have raved to everyone with how good it is there. I would highly recommend this place & hopefully with time they will make the restaurant a little bigger as it's just too small for such high quality food.
This place is gross and filthy and that's After they cleaned it up. They used to have a ball pit for the kids we nick named the "Petrie Dish". Bet the Health Dept shut that down.
I ordered a blizzard with extra stuff. The picture on the menu board shows a blizzard filled to the top with a HUGE mountain peak and whipped cream on top. I must must have got the Grand Canyon version. It was only filled to an inch below the rim no whip cream. I complained and was told that's the serving size. I have never seen anything like it. Plus the "extra" candy stuff that cost me well over a dollar was less than in the olden days for a regular one.
Do not go her ever - even to use the bathrooms - they're worse than a porta potty at a beer garden.
We had long awaited the opening of the new Thai / Vietnamese place that replaced the original failed "Pearl Castle" bubble tea and Taiwanese meal place (The Pearl's former owners spent loads of $$ to set up the place, but seemed to forget that this is PoCo).
First impressions: nice decor with Thai artifacts scattered throughout. Pleasant greeting from hostess, who seated us promptly and gently placed a expensive looking bound menu as we seated - she placed mine upside down in front of me.
The prices seem fair for the type of restaurant they seem to be emulating, classy yet not casual, but yet not fine dining. Time to order. There was a minor discussion amongst two wait staff at our tableside concerning who was to wait on our table - they are assigned tables. We ordered the stuffed chicken wings with butter sauce as appetizer and two curries, one of which was the duck curry described on the menu as a house specialty. The waitperson asked if we wanted the wings as appetizer first, so we answered yes.
Moments later, we noticed that we had not specified the level of spiciness (1, 2 or 3 pepper levels in the menu, we wanted level 2 ), so we flagged down our waitperson, only to be told that the spice levels could not be specified, that they were "set!?" We thought this very curious.
The beef curry dish was delivered in short order, but not before another discussion amongst the waiters whether it was for our table or not (we weren't sure ourselves as it seemed rather fast and the appetizer had not arrived as first as requested). As it turned out, it was the beef curry dish we ordered, but it was lukewarm, the beef extremely dry and the potatoes chunks in the curry were raw! We told the floor manager about the lukewarm dry beef and raw potatoes. He apologized and suggested we could order something else. So we ordered curried lamb.
The appetizer wings came out. They were simply plain deep fried wings, apparently marinated only in salt. At the centre of the plate was a dish of sweet chili chicken sauce, the bottled type, intended for dipping. There was not a shred of the pork and vegetable stuffing as stated on the menu and - the butter sauce?
My duck curry was temperature hot and had a reasonable amount of boneless duck pieces, but I could not find a single piece of pineapple - the menu description stated that the it was cooked with lichees and pineapples. Cherry tomatoes were apparently an acceptable substitute for pineapple?
The replacement curry was also temperature hot, but the boiled lamb pieces appeared to have simply been placed in the curry sauce while raw and allowed to cook along with it. The lamb showed no browning from being stir fried or pan fried which would have given it extra flavour.
My companion, who uses fish sauce in her home cooking, thought that the kitchen seemed have forgotten to add fish sauce to their dishes. We both thought that it was unforgivable that the menu describes one thing and what comes out is another. We were both disappointed.
I do not know where to start. I love this place. I love their gelato. I love the employees. I love the cones. I love the sparkle in my kids' eyes when I say "let's go for gelato!" There is only one place we would go.
I'd guess in the summer there are maybe 40 flavours. You can pretaste as many as you like, and they never make you feel bad or rushed. They are so nice to kids. Unlike most Gelato places run by cranky old Italian men, you can have 2, 3 who knows maybe more flavours in a single serving, even a small. A small is plenty for me as it is so rich and delish! At $3.75 a scoop I feel like yelling "start the car, start the car" like in the Ikea commercial. You'd pay much more for some icy rubbish at those tourist trap places in Vancouver.
Go right now!
I have been to this place many times. The quality is very good but my waitress always seems to mix up my order. Its not really her fault because she barely speaks english but at the end its not my fault if they screw up. Love the Tuna Tataki as well as the Gyzo its very good. Prices in not cheap nor expensive but if they would get there service act together I would go there more often.
Great rolls and chicken teriyaki lunch specials!
