have ordered from here about ten times in the last two years. Solid little restraunt with great food. I would give it a 5 for food but I feel there could be more meat in some of the dishes.
food comes quick and yes, it can be busy at times but it can also be dead more often. as far as i am concerned this is the best asian food in all of poco.
We were in POCO Wednesday evening and hubby said that his brother gave the place a big thumbs up. I'm going to stop going to restaurants that my brother-in-law recommends.
We weren't extremely hungry so we just had 2 dishes and rice. Prawns in black bean sauce were lacking in flavour. The prawns were so bland and very unappealing. Beef and broccoli was mostly broccoli and not much beef. The beef that was used was a very poor quality beef.
The ambiance is very nice but when I go out to eat the food is number 1 and Wah Wing definitely does not deliver as far as food quality. Service was decent not outstanding. One thing I did find towards the end of our meal while my husband was still eating the waitress came and stood by our table and watched, she then took just a small step away but continued watching us (pressures on to hurry up and eat). As soon as my husband put his chopsticks down she swooped right in and cleared the table. I thought it was really rude especially since there was only one other table there.
There are way better restaurants around. For what we had I felt it was overpriced.
I hadn't been to the cat in a couple of years but a friend told me there was a new chef and the food was great so I thought why not.WoW the food is maybe the best pub food in the province(at least for the ones I've tried)
I spend my free time in the summer riding my bike and I wouldn't even begin to guess at how many pubs I've eaten at but every time I go for a ride I make a point of finding a pub for lunch and I've been doing this since 1981 so I've ridden the mainland,sunshine coast and island from end to end several times over and the Cat has the best food I've had at a pub for many years.I've been there 3 times now and each time fantastic.The last time I was there they said they're putting in a new menu that their new chef has planned.I can see there's going to be more than a few rides out to Golden Ears and the Dewdney Trunk Rd thru Port Co. in my future,all I need now is some weather as good as the food.............................
We often order pick up meals from Bombay. I always order the Lamb Korma, medium spicy, It is DELICIOUS! They are generous with the protein in the meal and I have never been disappointed with the flavour. Their pricing is a little up there compared to a lot of Indian restaurants but I have no trouble paying for quality food.
The decor inside the restaurant is plain and I cannot comment on the service as I have only ever taken the food to go.
This is a regular restarant that we go to becuase the food is pretty decent, and it's the only chinese restuarant that's close to our area. I went yesterday (dragon boat festival), and the service was horrible.
1. we made reservation for 7:30, and we still have to wait till 7:45 (sitted with nothing on the table). There was a table at 7:30, but no one bother to clean it up so we can sit. This wasn't new, as reservation have no meaning in that restaurant. We had to remind the waitress a couple of time that we are waiting.
2. ordering was slow. we got our menus and no one came and ask if we were ready to order. we had to call them. same as re-fill for tea (they gave us a pot instead).
3. when our food came, the soup didn't come. Soup ususally comes first thing. When we ask, that gave us soup and didn't serve it, just put it on a table. It was some sort of left over pork soup with meat all broken up. Gross.
4. when we finish, we had to flag the waitress a couple of time before they heard us askign for our bill.
I was NOT impress with the service.
Will only go back there if we have to.
very sad that a mom and pop style deli does not appreciate a potential customers business....they are very rude ...they used to be a nice deli but could not care less on whether yo shop there or not..they are going to have a rude awakening when the inno bakery and deli opens up next door to them next month.. by that time it will be too late as i am sure that previous custmers are not going back to the polonia deli...
My wife and I just came from the Wah Wing Restaurant. We're pretty new to the hood....but one thing we've noticed is that Poco has an abundance of eateries. The wife was craving some Chinese food so we thought we'd try this place out.
The Service was excellent....I am not a Chinese food conneseiur. I ordered a chow mein dish which was not what I had envisioned. When it arrived I explained my ordering error to the server and asked to order another dish (willing to pay for this mistake dish of course). The server was nice about it, explained that we should order this other dish instead, and then took the plate away to return 10 mins later with my vision of a Chow Mein dish.
The food was great, We ordered Sweet and Sour Pork, Hot and Sour Soup, and the Chicken Chow Mein dish modified with soy sauce. Our bill was about $30 and there were enough leftovers for both our lunches tomorrow. The best part.....they didn't charge us for the mistake Chow Mein dish. One thing that stuck out on the bill was my can of Ice Tea which cost $2.75....thats a bit steep for a can of Nestle Ice Tea even if it is lemon flavored and has no preservatives.
The ambiance was surprisingly nice...from the outside you don't think much about this place. Once inside you can appreciate the decor and the mirrors really make this place feel bigger than it is. I've eaten in enough dives to know a good thing when I see it.......it looked very clean, and the staff seemed to genuinely care about our dining experience.
For two people, I would suggest the small offerring of Hot and Sour soup, the bowl was massive and could have easily fed 4-5 people.
I would definitely go back.
My girlfriend recently discovered this place with her sister and they loved it so she took me to this place. The flavor is very well done as you can add as much or little flavor as you want. The dishes can be piled up with your favorite ingredients; from chicken, pork, beef, or lamb, and vegetables. The waitress then brings the plate to you when it is done being cooked with a bowl of rice and some soup. I thought the place was clean and the service was delightful. Have a great day at King Mongolian Grill.
I visited the Gillnetter awhile ago and just didn't like the food. Fortunately, I gave it a second chance and the food actually turned out to be not just good but actually pretty great.
The view is amazing and I would say that this place has one of the best patios in Vancouver. Unfortunately, the service was kind of poor - again, I think it was just a bad night.
I'd give it a second shot - try the seafood pasta it was really good! Also, the patio over looks the Fraser river - it is a great view on a summer evening.
I used to buy pizza from these guys all the time. It was my favorite spot but over the last few months, they've gone from delivering quality to garbage. The last 3 times I ordered from these guys, the pizza's were nothing but bread, it had very little cheese, very little sauce and just a few of the toppings I had ordered. I gave them 3 chances to improve their quality, but nothing happened. So I've gone out of my way to register and create an account on here to let others know that if you don't want to be disappointed in your pizza, then I would not recommend ordering from this pizza joint.
We have got take out from here a couple of times now. All I can say is the quality and taste of the food here is exceptional. Their spicy wontons in peanut sauce are to die for. Their ginger beef is just as good. Whilst we sat and waited for our take out we did notice we were well attended to. You can't go wrong with this Szechuan food. 10% off your bill if you pick your food up.
We eat falafels alot. We do not eat falafels from this place every again. My husband Gagged literally on his, choked and then vomitted. He said there was something large and hard in it. We did not search to see what it was.
Other than that for $5 each you get a microwaved falafel with iceberg lettuce, tomato and some bottled sauce. We asked for one falfel hot and one med hot. Got one hot one not hot - spice that is, as both were ICe COld inside. YUK.
The place is seriously filthy and the staff do not look like they bathe. This place is nasty.
We'd been looking for a while for a good breakfast place in Poco. Went to a couple places that were ok, then we found KC's. It's now our 'go-to' weekend breakfast spot. It's family run, with very friendly service. Always chatty and personal, they remember who you are. The food is great too. They have everything you could think of for breakfast and it's cooked just right.
I've been here once after I heard about it from friends:
Pros: View is great - fun on the inside - I bet this place would be great during Christmas or Halloween - good party feel.
Unfortunately, the food was a bit bland and they served spinach dip with stale chips. Maybe it was a bad day and I'd give it another try. I had the ribs which tasted like they were a bit old and just had a whole bunch of bbq sauce on them - It wasn't as bad as I make it sound, i'd try it again.
Staff was warm and friendly though. Great beer selection on tap.
ate at this new place last night. We were greeted very warmly at the door and seated right away. Comfy booth seating around the restaurant that they seem to fill up first with tables in the middle. Dark wood floors and very clean with a lovely bar area and metal ceiling accent. Value for the price is very good and the service is friendly and not pushy. They have lots of different food options. Seafood souvalaki read very well, but I decided to have the steak and lasagna (with most of the lasagna going home with me). Great choice! It was served at the right degree with a nice amount of caesar salad and garlic bread well presented all together on large square plates. The lasagna could have been a little warmer as by the time I got to it after enjoying the salad and bread, the cheese was no longer melted, but this was fine. The lasagna flavour is excellent with a lovely meaty sauce and spinach. My friend had the chicken marsala which he really enjoyed as well. His drink was refilled without having to ask so we appreciated the level of attention that we received. The desserts read really well on the menu, but we were too full so will try them next time. Will definately be back especially because of the quality of food for the price as our total came to only $40 and they also provide delivery and take out which is wonderful.
We wanted to try a new Chinese food restaurant, so we heard some good things about Wah Wing. Boy were those other reviews wrong. We got Sweet and Sour Pork, House Chow Mein and Chicken in Black Bean Sauce. First, the chow mein was soaked in sesame oil, no taste what-so-ever! Second, the sweet and sour pork (usually a staple in Chinese food around here) was chewy and bitter not sweet or sour. Third, the black bean sauce also tasted like sesame oil. How does that happen?!?!
We will never eat here again, 3 strikes and your OUT!!! Oh and the food was fairly expensive too. Just a heads up if you wanted to experiment...
We have been ordering delivery from San Remo for many years and they always deliver a great pizza for a reasonable price. We have never had a cold or crushed delivery from them which is more than we can say for some others we have tried. We always come back here. Great people, great service and great food.
I don't get the rave reviews here. I've even had people tell me it's the best sushi in Poco and such a good deal. I went and ordered my usualy rolls. The cost was about the same as most other places I go. The taste was about the same as other places I go. The portion was the same as the other places I go. Nothing extraordinary here.
Edible -yes. Incredible - no.
I love this mom and pop kind of restaurant. Its very personal. The food is always excellent. One of my favourite is the bumble bee roll. Its like a dynamite roll wrapped with a sweet potato tempura with this Mango like sauce. Another favourite is the Beef YakiUdon. Very flavourful.
Once you are seated they offer you free salad with strawberries in it. The prices are decent and the ambiance is excellent.
It maybe a bit hard to find if you dont know the area well as they are tucked behind a small street. Just look for the Archbiship Carney school or Save on Foods.
We had take out here recently. Manager is quite nice and everything was ready within 15 minutes. The dinner for two will feed four easily as we had lots of leftovers and ate a lot. We've done the all you can eat here a couple of times as well and the place is in need of a good cleaning, some new dishes and redecorating, but for the price the value is good. It was basic Canadian style chinese food that we ate, not the more exotic dishes. The food is not fabulous, just a step up from a food court, but tasty enough that we will go back. There isn't enough pineapple to go with the sweet n sour pork. Don't go there expecting it to be like Kirin or other upscale restaurants.
