Buckstop833 Denman Street, Vancouver
BBQ Pitmaster this place is NOT!
Submitted Sunday, July 10, 2016 - 10:24am [Dine in]

Having been in the BBQ hobby for the past 4 years now we decided hey why not were right in the area so we stopped in on a Saturday afternoon, 6 people including us were in the restaurant. We seated ourselves and the waitress came over and gave us the menus and asked if we wanted drinks,,we said no just water would be fine. After 15 minutes she came back to get our order,,,said Oh I totally forgot about your water,,,which tuned into another 10 min before it was there, Okay,,,6 people and she couldn't get water to the table>>??
We ordered a smoked brisket and a pulled pork sandwich to share, and after 25 minutes it arrived, pulled pork order spot on,,,brisket order not so much. Just brisket on a board, no bun, i asked if this was the sandwich,,,she said oh miscommunication with the chef??
Long story short,,,they just stuffed the brisket in a bun and said here you go!

Now to the best part,,,Pulled pork,,now I have smoked dozens of these babies and know what pulled pork should taste like, and not a gloppy wet mess on a soaked thru bun.
The brisket had NO smoke on it whatsoever,,,it was like it was steamed or something but if it was smoked,,someone forgot to add the wood!
Now I know how hard it must be to have a BBQ joint in a small venue,,,electric smokers because of space and requirements etc etc,,but I've eaten some pretty good Q all over and even made some outstanding Q of my own
but Buckstop I am afraid to say, unless it was an off day for them, is not the best BBQ in Vancouver.
sorry to say,,,we will not return
Pitmasters they are not!

Score on Davie1262 Davie street, Vancouver
Cool atmosphere crappy food
Submitted Saturday, February 20, 2016 - 8:47am [Dine in]

After reading all the hype about this place we finally decided to try it out for brunch.?
The service was mediocre at best and the food not good
The big breakfast was so over cooked, potatoes like fried up rocks, poached eggs like golf balls
Awful food, toast had been sitting out a long time before it came to me, likely pre cooked, so dry and shrivelled up, yecch!
The perogies were so over cooked you could hardly cut them with a steak knife, unreal bad.
Likely the worst breakie I have ever had. Wife's French toast was passable, but there was snotty uncooked egg on the bottom,,,!
Suffice to say whoever is in the kitchen isn't on the ball, maybe we just happened to get a cook having a bad morning, but it wasn't good
The value for the price paid was NOT good,,pretty expensive for the portion and quality
We won't be back
Too bad, I have read some good reviews about Score but this isn't a good one for sure

Worst po'boy ever.......sorry to say
Submitted Saturday, May 17, 2014 - 10:51pm [Dine in]

Went to buy some spot prawns and thought why not, let's get a po'boy to split!
Now if you've ever had a Real Po'boy from the south you will be so disappointed with this place
Pan seared oysters on a burger bun, sloppy, wet, and completely awful.

The only po'boy that justifies reality is deep fried oysters on a nice soft white bun, lettuce onions and
Nice tarter sauce

This was as far from a po'boy as possible, I would never order this from this place again
Should have had the fish and chips, looked yummy, but we really wanted oysters ,,,,,,,,big disappointment!

Aside from waiting 25 min, I wish they could have made a REAL po'boy. Emeril would have been disgusted!

Values for money? Awful $10.50 for 3 steamed oysters on a total sogged out bun, anyway, they should try MY po'boy, it'll make you drool!

Never be back!

C Restaurant1600 Howe Street, #2, Vancouver
Dine out Vancouver mediocre at best
Submitted Saturday, January 25, 2014 - 11:25pm [Dine in]

The C restaurant is supposed to be one of the higher class of restaurants in Vancouver offering the dine out menu for $ 38.00 a person, yet the menu was mediocre at best and the food about par with that.
The service was good but the menu was so convoluted with supplemental ad ons it left you with either steak or salmon as an entree without paying an extra 15-20 bucks more on top of you 38.00 already.

2 desserts to choose from, that's it, Panna cotta or chocolate mousse, and the wait staff really push the pairings big time, maybe extra on their tips?....

It was crowded and the girls at the front end had reservations so screwed up, many people were waiting making it impossible to manoeuvre to the washrooms let alone the wait staff.

I highly doubt we'll be back anytime soon, I think C Restaurant has seen their days, there are much better deals on Dine out in Vancouver to be had.

Sushi Nanaimo350 Nanaimo Street, Vancouver
We'll be back many times!
Submitted Saturday, February 2, 2013 - 5:57pm [Dine in]

After reading about Sushi Nanaimo and driving by many times we decided today would be a good day to have lunch there. What a great choice ...the food was excellent for the price and portions were very large,,,great value for money spent.

Quaint seating arrangement,,you might even get to talk to your neighbor as well,,which today helped us tons in ordering off the extensive menu.

its clean, waitress's are polite and helpful, always back to refill your tea and you get a great thank you some again when you leave.

The price's are awesome for what you get,,,,less then $ 30.00 for lunch and we did over order as it was our first time,,,two lunch specials would have been more than enough,,and at 7.95 its a bargain!

We'd been searching for a great sushi restaurant for awhile now,,,and think we have found it. We'll be back real soon!

Kent's Kitchen232 Keefer Street, Vancouver
McKents for sure,,,, very low end Chinese food...don't expect much.
Submitted Friday, February 1, 2013 - 3:28pm [Take-out]

Well what can one say about Kent's Kitchen. Its fast and easy just like McDonald's, quality of food is well less than great. Its what you would expect given the look of the place, everyone from suits to street people eat there.
Make sure you kind of know what you want and then order,,,,there is no dissemblance of a line,,,people just go in front of you and even though you may have been there longer doesn't mean the servers behind the counter are going to take your order first. kind of a freeforall! and make sure you have CASH only.

The food is FAST food Chinese and sometimes surprisingly enough its not too bad but there are times when its not so good either. Don't look back in the kitchen,,,,if dirt and I am sure 100 health violations happening all at the same time turn you off,,,,you will not eat here.

I am sure at some point if not still there are some happy rodents running around!

The tables inside are gross,,,,never washed and all covered in god knows what....

Its just what it is,,,fast food Chinese to go............

Acropol Taverna2942 West Broadway, Vancouver
Old place, needs complete new facelift and new menu
Submitted Friday, February 1, 2013 - 3:15pm [Dine in]

We used a Groupon for this place last week. I was hesitant from the start after seeing it a few times but thought we'd give it a go. As Canadian Greek restaurant food goes it was mediocre at best,,,the lam tasted so dry and I would think it wasn't lamb but Mutton. I had the pork chops,," a staff favorite" why I have no idea,,,they were so dry and overcooked you needed a food steak knife to hack your way through them.

The kitchen is on the way to the washrooms,,,and from the glimpse I got,,,was stacked to the ceiling with stuff,,dirty grill hood,,,very messy and not clean.

The service was not too bad,,,the older server was on her on and the place was empty when we arrived. I surmise they have their regular following that frequent this place regularly.

Ambiance,,,run down showing,,,needs paint,,,cleaning, new floor, etc etc a Face Lift by Chef Ramsey could be in order here.

All in all, for the price there is way better Greek food out there

We won't return anytime too soon

Peaceful Restaurant532 West Broadway, Vancouver
Peaceful very tasty indeed!
Submitted Tuesday, May 22, 2012 - 9:04am [Dine in]

After watching Diners Drivein's and Dives episode with the Peaceful restaurant we just had to try this place out.

We stopped at the Davie St. location only to find a sign in the window closed for reno's..we decided to head over to the West Broadway location and give this joint a whirl!

Its a small hole in the wall barely wide enough to stretch out your arms but it was VERY busy and the smell coming from the kitchen was overwhelmingly wonderful. I was drooling watching all the delicious looking plates of hot steaming food arrive at the tables, we couldn't wait to get seated.

The waitress was very pleasant and showed us the run down of the menu items and made suggestions for us to try! Beef Rolls were the first thing we wanted,,,man that crispy onion pastry surrounding that wonderful beef and Hoison sauce was just delectable, with the right amount of oily texture.

Next we had a plate of stir fried Shanghai Noodles with knife cut hand made noodles, lathered in a wonderful sauce with chicken, green onions and mushrooms, very tasty and steamy hot fresh!

The General Tsao's chicken plate was the best,,,I have never tasted chicken so tender and the nice tangy sauce that engulfed the food was so finger licking good!

Chinese Forest Vegetable plate was the 4th dish we ordered and were not disappointed at all,,usually you get a dish that is luke warm and accompanied with limp veges but not so here, everything was crisp, steaming hot and very fresh tasting. A great side dish for the Chicken!

All in all I would say this place warrants a visit,,,I know we are going back, the menu has a lot of items to try and I bet it could turn into a weekly haunt if the first visit is any indication of how well everything is prepared.

Peace out all you foodies!

Troll's at Horseshoe Bay6408 Bay Street, West Vancouver
Gone down hill a long way
Submitted Saturday, March 12, 2011 - 2:30pm [Dine in]

We decided to have some dinner while waiting to pickup a friend from the ferry and thought we hadn't been to Troll's in such a long time why not give it a go. Big mistake,,,i remember it when the fish and chips tasted so fresh and the chips were piled high and had home made tarter sauce and nice crispy coleslaw.

This place has gone so far downhill,,,this was the greasiest fish I have ever tasted and I had to ask the waitress if I could have more then 10 french fries, even she was embarrassed. The coleslaw was bagged and so oily with some prepackaged dressing it was soggy, uneatable!

Franky I would never go back here,,,the food is awful the service sucks hugely and it is so OVERPRICED...

Sea Lovers has Troll's beat hands down for fish and chips if you can imagine that!

I think there must be new owners or people who only care about quantity and not quality, we won't be back

The Troll's of yesteryear is long gone........where you had a friendly face meet you at the door to seat you, not a condescending teenager with a part time job who could care less to even be there. Waitress's who are more interested in chatting about boys etc and not the paying customers, its a shame,,,Troll's name was built on good food and a great place to eat........what happened is anybody's guess,,,sign of the times I suppose

Never going back

Backstage Lounge, The1585 Johnston Street, Vancouver
A good place for a snack before the Play
Submitted Saturday, March 12, 2011 - 2:19pm [Dine in]

We came here primarily to have a bite to eat before we went to The Granville Arts Stage to watch a play. It's a convenient place to go as its only footsteps to the Arts stage but I would recommend you arrive at least 1 1/2 hour before the play to eat because it starts to fill up with people who have the same idea and the service looks like it gets slow when its busy in there.

Ambiance is mediocre,,,nothing to make you yell and scream, the high tables are out of sync with the stool chairs that go with them,,,you wind up with the table top 12" below your chin..

The service was great for us...our waitress was very attentive and helpful in choosing which food would be fastest to get served.

The food was okay,,,I mean its not 4 star food okay its pub grub...and somewhat overpriced as you could imagine being that close to Granville Island.

We used two Groupon's for the 5 of us and never had any problems at all,,,so all in all I'd say for an appy and a drink before the play...its a good spot to go.

Cilantro & Jalapeno123 Carrie Cates Court, #131, North Vancouver
not so good!
Submitted Thursday, March 10, 2011 - 11:07am [Dine in]

Having heard a lot about Cilantro & Jalapeno both for Mexican Groceries and a food counter I decided to try this out with my Oldest daughter one afternoon. Having shopped at the other Mexicans grocery eateries in Vancouver I thought this would be a nice change, since they also sold cooking supplies and had a eating counter or take out.

We opted for the Enchilada's, mine with Mole and my daughters with chili sauce. Well for the price I have to say the servings are very small and the food was pretty tasteless, I was very disappointed .
The other Mexican store competitors in Vancouver who have lunch and groceries are so authentically Mexican its almost as if you are actually in Mexico when you're there.

Maybe it was a bad day for them, I have no idea but I won't be returning soon, even the price of the cooking supplies were very over priced,,,

Check out the other Mexican Groceries in Vancouver and try them and you'll understand what I am saying, I guess I expected too much for a food court eatery.

Azia990 Smithe Street, Vancouver
Dine out at Azia was great for us
Submitted Thursday, February 3, 2011 - 8:45am [Dine in]

We were just actually looking for a place to eat to kill time until the movie started and read about Azia.
We had a groupon for the restaurant and thought lets use it, but for the dine out it couldn't be used which was a drag but we had the dine out menu anyway.

The service and food was awesome. Very tasty with great flavors.

The dine out for $ 28.00 each was I would say was fair in value.

We had two appy's, Prawn platter and Sushi Sampler
2 Mains, Coconut Curry Lobster and Sesame Ginger Beef
Dessert, Azia Coconut Crepe and Baked Banana Spring Roll

All in all it was very good, especially the Lobster, very filling

The service was awesome,,,our waitress was very attentive, polite and always filled our tea and water

I think the manager was the one who was smoking right outside the door when we arrived and told us they opened at 5, which it was already. He seemed agitated or rushed and it was evident when he was in the restaurant as well...I think if you open at 5 PM you should be ready to go at 5 PM not start work at 5...

We plan to return to use our Groupon coupon soon!

Kingston 11 Reggae Cafe1336 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
Okay Irie,!
Submitted Friday, January 21, 2011 - 9:32am [Dine in]

We had dinner at the Kingston Reggae cafe on Lonsdale before our evening Spanish class. As far as excellent representation of Jamaican food it was just an okay. We have spent a lot of time in Jamaica and there are better Jamaican restaurants around in the Vancouver area.
My wife had the Oxtail stew,,,warning ,,very hot and spicy..although she said it was very good
I had the Kingfish which was very dry...it had be precooked for sure.
Everything was served with baby greens salad and rice and peas. The rice was kind of dry as well.

Service was good, albeit we were the only people in there at that time, the fellow was very friendly though.
The menu is sparse,,,maybe 7-8 items for the day and that was it. Not much on the way of drinks a few pop and water and some Jamaican bottled drinks.

Would we go back,,,,well there are so many other restaurants on Lonsdale that warrant trying so I doubt a re trip to reggae cafe is in the works soon

Great Sushi style for a great price
Submitted Friday, October 29, 2010 - 10:32am [Dine in]

We have eaten there a few times now and I would say its fair to now give them a review.

The variety is good and the food is always hot and delicious. You get tea as soon as you sit down and there's always a refill whenever you want it. Menu has some great specialty rolls in the back,,,our favorite is the King Crab Roll....very good.

We had the Deep dried whole crab one time but it was VERY greasy and didn't set well with us.

The $ 7.50 specials on the front page of the menu are a good deal if your into a light quick lunch or dinner, looks like good value here.

Parking can be a hassle, there is parking in the rear but its crowded with the bike and scuba shop parking.

They are open till 10 PM so that a good point if a late night snack attack gets you.

All in all its a great spot for a nice middle of the road Japanese sushi joint, the decor is ,,,well,,,,as expected with it being such a small place but its the food and prices that makes it stand out. The TV in the corner can be a it annoying after awhile.....

Give it a try,,,,see what you think....

Taiko on Denman689 Denman Street, Vancouver
Taiko serves Great tasting food and is a new up and comer in the AYCE sushi restaurants
Submitted Tuesday, August 17, 2010 - 1:00pm [Dine in]

We decided to try Taiko last night for our 2nd Anniversary dinner. We were not disappointed,,,this little gem serves great AYCE sushi fresh and very tasty. Their menu is varied but a lot like many other of the AYCE's,,,pretty straight forward Japanese food.

The service is good,,,but there seems to be the same thing happening as with many AYCE's,,,you order a line of food and you only get 2/3's of it like so many other AYCE's there must be a broken link between the waiter and the kitchen staff.

We waited a long time to get our bill as well,,I asked 3 different people and finally after 20 minutes it arrived.
It wasn't busy there at all.....so I wonder if Taiko will fall prey to all the other AYCE's and eventually have crappy service and crappy food. I hope not....try this one out fast, because at the moment is really good.

The Restaurant is clean, washrooms are impeccable and the staff very friendly.

I suggest you try it and be your own judge....I think when you order you have to keep track and ask your waiter when you are receiving what you have ordered if it doesn't arrive. For $ 23.95 Dinner its a bargain,,so just reorder it again!

Good luck and good eating

Submitted Thursday, July 8, 2010 - 3:30pm [Dine in]

What happened to Tanpopo on Denman Street?
It used to be not a bad spot for all you can eat sushi but the place has GONE DOWNHILL badly. The carpet on the floor is SO ratty and dirty and the washrooms are disgusting,,,,scratches all over the doors,,,and really dirty!

They need a makeover badly....They have so much potential for their location,,,its a shame to see it so run down. The food wasn't as good as usual but it was screwed up as usual,,,you almost never get what you order and it comes in dribs and drabs or it comes all at once. Something never change!

We won't be back until the place has been cleaned up or overhauled. Does anyone know of another great haunt for all you can eat sushi that's clean and decent?

Dundarave Fish Market2423 Marine Drive, West Vancouver
Riptide Squid is a hit!
Submitted Thursday, April 8, 2010 - 4:05pm [Dine in]

We love fish and after having received a gift card for the Dundarave Fish market decided to go it a try.
We had heard so much about the Rip Tide Squid dish,,it was as good as I had thought it would be. Tasty!
The food in general is good,,,but I would say a tad overpriced but I would come to expect that from being located in Dundarave West Van.

After looking at the menu we decided the best way to spend our gift card was to try appys and that was exactly the way to go. The Entree items were overpriced to say the least.
You get more bang for your buck eating appy's anyway and get to try a lot of different items.

We were seated in front of the fish cooler which I wasn't impressed with,,,the person on the outside get continuosly bumped into from customers buying fish.

All in all, it was a good meal,,,we personally wouldn't plan a dinner out here because of the price more then anything. There are seafood restaurants out there that your dollar goes a lot farther for the amount of food you receive.

Heart stopping, Vein Clogging ,Burgers
Submitted Thursday, April 8, 2010 - 3:55pm [Dine in]

We love Hamburgers once in awhile and after having been to the Vera's on Davie Street thought while we were in N Van why not give this location a shot.
Before I get along on this review I have to say this location on Lonsdale doesn't hold a prayer to the one on Davie. Davie location has pictures of the BIG burger club,and people who have eaten the BIG burger etc etc and a lot more pizazz than the bleak bare Lonsdale location.

Now onto the review:
we have to this point been to the Lonsdale location twice and this past visit prompted me to write this review.
The service this last time in was awful,,,,the kid on the register didn't have a clue what he was doing and had the order so screwed up it was unbelieveable. I would say that training is non existant if at all,,,or they hire people who can't count or add.

The food was so greasy,,,I mean the burgers are okay, pink and juicy but not the same as the Davie location, the fries are SOOOO greasy,,,really bad!

The seating is okay if its not busy but we were there with my 72 yr old mother in law and there was this one guy who was sitting at a booth for 4 all alone and he didn't have the courtesy to get up and sit at the counter near the window while my mother in law had to try and negotiate the climb onto the high stools.

I don't know why theres so much difference in Vera's burgers outlets...this one obviously needs some work to get up to speed of its flagship!

We won't be back to this location after this last espisode,,,
It's Davie Street or nothing!

Well , there are so many Izakaya bars in Vancouver now, it seems to be the latest rave.
Kingyo is yet another form of these tapas restaurants that delivers smiles and good Japanese tapas.
Service is excellent , food is good, maybe not as plentiful as the Guu's but very tasteful just the same.
The seating is maybe a bit awkward, if you get sat down at a large table with a table screen, you will be rubbing elbows with your neighbours.

Submitted Friday, March 19, 2010 - 9:03am [Dine in]

We hadn't been to Red Chilli for awhile and decide to give it one last try,,,the food is great but the service and hospitality sucks!

We arrived and asked for a table for two to which we were sneered at and asked "sure you don't want takeout"...which we thought was rude and replied "no we want to be seated"
When it was time to order the waitress was very impatient and kept suggesting items that take less time to get.

We ordered our food and waited a long time for it,,,when it finally arrived its as if the waitress was always watching us to see if and when we would finish. I hardly had the last piece of food off my plate and she took away my plate and utencils!!!!!

We were just about finished and she stood there 5 feet away and watched over us like a hawk,,,,not being able to get us out quick enough. It was very intrusive and not enjoyable at all. I guess the place is small so the quicker you get people done and out the more business you can get,,,

When she gave us the bill I paid with credit card and she was back at our table in 10 seconds WOW, fastest I have ever seen that done and said Goodnight! to us which meant I guess "Get Out"

For takeout they are quite good,,,for eating in,,,be prepared to be rushed and hurried through your meal while being watched.

Maybe its time to invest in a bigger space......we won't be back for awhile,,,we like to eat normally and not gulp down our food and made to feel like we are intruding.
