Cannery Seafood House, The2205 Commissioner Street, Vancouver
Eat less for more !
Submitted Monday, August 24, 2009 - 8:27am [Dine in]

The Cannery is an old restaurant and has been around since the dawn of time almost, the spider webs in the driftwood laden walls prove this. This place hasn't had a good dusting in 10 years or more,,we were seated in a booth even though we made reservation over 2 months ago for a table by a window for our wedding anniversary.

The service I must say was great, our waiter was there almost from the time we were sat down. Lots of bread on the table with a great oil dipping sauce of Balsamic and lobster scented oils.

We had the roasted mussels for an appy,,,they were way over cooked and the liquid on the HOT plate was cooked to a cinder!

MY wife had black smoked cod for an entree and I had the Halibut cheeks,,,hers was very good surprisingly enough but my Halibut Cheeks were the consistency of Halibut butts, stringy and tough.

Dessert was disappointing to say the least. MY wife had the Favorite,,,I have no idea why they call it that...blood orange creme brulee my butt,,how about pudding,,,and in a Chinese tea cup.

My pecan pie was so dry and hard you needed a knife to cut into it. No pecan meat at all just nuts and syrup,,and crappy pastry.

Overall I would say this food was mediocre , we eat out a lot and had never been here,,,because of the reviews...but thought maybe they are all wrong ,,a restaurant as old as the Cannery should be very good.

For 187.00 we could have eaten at Guu with Garlic 3 times or more,,,ummm maybe the high price restaurants are just that, high prices low food quality.

There's better quality for your money elsewhere in Vancouver

Tropika1128 Robson Street, Vancouver
Lunch at Tropika
Submitted Thursday, January 15, 2009 - 9:51am [Dine in]

Having been to the Cambie street locaton of Tropika previously I happened to be in the DT area and thought why not give this location a try as well. Parking is the biggest obstacle here,,,,try off the main drag.

I like the locaton of the restaurant, being up off of the street level,,getting a window seat would be nice rather than sitting in the back 40's.

Decor....its pretty good...not too over rambuncious although seating on the bench area to the right is rather cramped,,you can almost touch your neighbour,,,not a desired place to sit if you want a private relaxed lunch or dinner.

Service was good for us,,,,we were seated right away and the waiter arrived soon after with our menus and asked us abouts drinks etc. Our food arrived in a timely fasion. Pleasant and curtious all around.

The food........was tasty,,although the Thai chicken feet salad was too awashed in dressing which made the lettuce sloppy and limp. The Pork Rib soup was tasty and nice,,maybe a bit too salty for my liking. Our noodle dish was very good,,,lots of prawns and chicken and very filling.

Would I return,,,umm well as much as it was a nice place to eat,,,I would return to the Cambie Street location before I came back to this location. There are so many ethnic restaurants to try in our great City so I wouldn't be able to say that Tropika would be my favorite haunt or eatery.....although I would recommend it to anyone to try for sure.

Good place for a lunch special for sure!

Good eating

Sala Thai888 Burrard, #102, Vancouver
Thai Another One
Submitted Sunday, January 11, 2009 - 1:04pm [Dine in]

Sala Thai

Having been by this Restaurant many times on the way to the Theater's and it has been our intention to always give it a try. Thanks to the snowy streets that day we dropped in to see how Sala Thai would fare.

Its hard to find a really good Thai place to eat after having been to Thailand several times in the past and it makes writing a review difficult as well

Decor......Typical Thai but better then most in our fair city it actually has some very neat designs.

Menu,,,about the same as many Thai restaurants, curries, noodles, rices etc etc, enough to choose from for sure.

Service...a little slow considering there were only 20 people there at the time. We got the feeling at times, they felt they were doing us a favor by having us eat there,,not sure why its not a place to scream about. We would liked to have seen smiles from the staff even if they were put on it would at least lend a welcoming atmosphere.

Food....good, tasty, smaller portions than many Thai places we've been to..authenticity was okay,,,,there are better Thai locations for this in Vancouver and surrounding area.

The Paenang Curry was barely enough for two people, make sure you ask for rice.....at $ 1.75 a serving it should at least arrive hot.!

I would say that Sala Thai is okay at best,,,,considering the price's ,,,more bang for your buck can be found at many Thai Restaurants in our City!

Won't be returning soon with all the other outlets yet to try!

Kirin Mandarin Restaurant1172 Alberni Street, Vancouver
Kirin....first time expierience
Submitted Sunday, January 11, 2009 - 11:42am [Dine in]

Kirin Chinese restaurant on Alberni !
Well having heard so much about this place we though okay lets try it,,,it has to be good right?

First of all...the young lady at the reservation counter could use a refresher on how to Smile and at least appear to be happy,,,even if we are Caucasion we have money to spend as well.

The layout is very typical Chinese, not having spent too much on decor...large tables for that banquet feel I suppose.

The service however was very good,,,better than average and certainly better than Sun Sui Wah!

The Menu is quite varied, lots to choose from,,maybe a little over priced because of its location,,,it has a new location in New West which I hear is $ 2.00 cheaper than any of the items on the menu DT.

But nonetheless you will definitely find something to please your palate from fish to soups to noodles etc etc

The food,,,,very good and HOT....not served warm as so many other Dim Sums are. Each dish we ordered came in record time and I must say tasted very good...no complaints

All in all I would say that Kirin would be a good choice for a more elegant and tastier Dim Sum experience, however be prepared to fork over more $ than you might be used to.

Would I return ?,,,,um...maybe....I would definitely take out of town guests there,,,Also I would like to try Kirin for Dinner sometime

All in all it was very enjoyable, it deserves a definite go to and eat!

Guu Original838 Thurlow St, Vancouver
Great Guu !
Submitted Sunday, September 28, 2008 - 11:06am [Dine in]

Well..after having been to Guu with Garlic we decided to give the Guu orginal a try!
It's as great as the other 3 locations,,,food is solid,,,,service is great for such a busy place and just as LOUD as the other locations ! LOL!

We were so looking forward to the EEL but its wasn't available that day :(
Oh well that just means another trip back to Guu,,,

The menu is different at all of the locations and I would say my fav is Guu with Garlic........I think they do that on purpose so you have to go to all 4 to enjoy your Fav dishes!

Anyway a short review here, we al know how good these places are......GO , Try them all,,,you'll love em!

Mui Garden Restaurant5960 Minoru Boulevard, Richmond
Best Curry Beef Brisket
Submitted Sunday, September 28, 2008 - 10:59am [Dine in]

Being avid asian food fans and after having researhed on dinehere.ca reviews we decide that since we had to come to Richmond for errands we would try the Mui Garden on Minoru. The location is a bit obscure and we didn't realize that they had rooftop parking until after we had parked in the mall underground parking lot.
The ambience is typically asian with quite a few award certificates decorating the walls as well as some asian artwork. The seating is very modest and not flashy mostly made up of booths ,tables and chairs.

The menu is very extensive,,its hard to choose but there is also a chef recommended menu attached which made ordering easier for us.
Medium Won Ton soup to start ( warning,,,be hungry theres lots for 2)
Curried Beef brisket ( yellow curry) which was absolutly scrumptious
Beef in Black Bean sauce Chow Mein , another very tasty and yummy dish.

Needless to say we had leftovers and ate them for breakfast the next day!,,still just as tasty!

The Service was great,,,and the waitress was very talkative and told us about her having to work a split shift,,,,,We had a never ending supply of tea,,,although it was a bit watered down for my liking.

I would say if your in the area definatly stop in and give this Asian Gem a try,,,,try the Curry Beef Brisket,,,,I am going to try my hand at this great dish next Sunday for dinner!

A great find!

Tropika2975 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Good for the Price
Submitted Friday, February 15, 2008 - 5:15pm [Dine in]

We ate at Tropika on Cambie last Saturday afternoon, IT wasn't a planned event or anything, we just happened upon the place hungry. Now having just gotten back from a month in Thailand we were already well versed in the Thai food part of the menu.

We have 3 items from the lunch menu and all were very good. Lots to eat and even a doggie bag for later on. A total of 20 Dollars for lunch with dessert and tea. Pretty good

The service was awesome,,I was so surprised,,this is usually my pet peeve,,I cannot stand bad service,,there is no need of it and a good manager would fire anyone who gave bad service to paying customers.

This place however did exceptionally well,,,always smiles and cleared our dirty plates fast.......asked us how was the food etc etc,,just like you would expect.

Anyway I read the reviews here and can't comment on anything bad here,,other then the restaurant being on Cambie street which is a driving and parking hell right now.

We will would return but probably try the Robson Street location for ease of parking and less congested traffic.

Khunnai Chang Thai Cuisine835 Denman St., Vancouver
Good Canadian Thai Food
Submitted Sunday, January 20, 2008 - 2:56pm [Dine in]

I stopped into this quaint little place on Denman Street yesterday in search of some Thai food that I have been craving since I have been back to Canada. Now I must admit I am a good chef in my own rights and spending 4 weeks in Thailand travelling as a Thai would travel has enlightened my taste buds considerably.
I thought what the Hey,,,lets try it out. At first glance, its a bit stark, the walls I mean,,,it could use a little more Thai ambience I think. The staff appeared to be all Thai's except the gentleman behind the bar who I think was the owner.
The menu was very good,,,extensive,,you'd have to come here a few times to do a just and right review I think. I had the lunch special,,Red chicken with Currey, spring rolls and soup.

The soup,,,well was a bit too oily but tasty none the less,,the spring roll was very good,,,the Red Currey,,although a bit too mild for my liking,,,was very nice indeed, with white Jasmine rice on the side.

The service was excellent and business began to pick up around 12 30 PM,,,it looks like it might be a haunt for quite a few people who enjoy Thai food.

The Restaurant itself was very clean as were the washrooms..the server wore her yellow Kings shirt ( which is the Monday color by the way) and could converse in English very well.

I would definatly go back and try the selection of items on their menu and I would recommend this place as a definate must try.

Urban Thai Bistro1119 Hamilton Street, Vancouver
THAI one on !
Submitted Sunday, October 14, 2007 - 9:50am [Dine in]

Having already eaten at the other THAI Houses restaurant locations we decdied to THAI one on at this location. The server greeted us cheerfully and sat us at a booth inside as the sun was already down and getting too chilly to sit outside. The ambeince of this location was appealingly pleasent with high ceilings and exposed wooden beams and many trinkets of Thai origin deocrating every nook and cranny. Our waitress was a very cheery young Thai lady who spoke perfect english and willingly helped us with our Thai for an upcoming trip in December. She was full of information of What to see, Where to go, What to buy etc., etc. which bolstered our confidence for the trip ahead.The menu is very extensive and it was hard to decide what to order so we opted for the dinner for two instead of the regular 3 items off the menu. The spring rolls and chicken satay were very tasty as were the dipping sauces that came with them . The chicken curry( medium) was also very yummy served with fragrant white Thai rice. The Green beans and Prawns, which I am sure if served in Bangkok would be an entirely different taste, was suprisingly tasty,,,,the whole mixture combined on your plate made for some interestingly spicy and tangy cusine.
The Tom Yum Gai soup was VERY spicy, too much for me although Precious thought it was awesome,,she always has a palate for heated food. The dessert ,pretty typical for any asian cusine,,,is not extensive as we Sugar loving Canadians would like it but the Deep fried Banana's and Mango ice cream was enough to satisfy even the sweetest tooth.

All in all I would say this Thai House is a pretty solid bet, the prices might be a bit steeper than one or two of the other locations and the amount and quality of the food is very good. Not outstanding enough to make you stand up and yell to the rest of the patrons " This food is Awesome", but good enough to "ummmmmmm" yummy ! by .

This place is definatly worth a try for Thai food lovers.

Memphis Blues Barbeque House1629 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
Okay but lacking !
Submitted Saturday, September 1, 2007 - 11:31pm [Dine in]

Having been to a real Kansas City BBQ restaurant,,,,Memphis needs some more work. I read the reviews and thought Wow a real life BBQ.......not so!
Soggy beans, sour cole slaw, and a less than appealing cook !. lose the nose and ear rings........it scares the customers away !

The Pulled pork bun I must say was pretty good, full as one would expect........served on a cold bun unfortunatly,,,and not served with onions like in the ole south!

Maybe it was an off day.......
The prices are average to medium range,,,expected in todays eating out economy,,,,20 bucks barely buys two people lunch nowadays, so in respect to that Memphis was a good buy.

Would I go back ?,,maybe for dinner,,,,,,,not sure,,,with so many more eating establisments to try ,Memphis I think is low down on the list...for now!

Prince Chinese Seafood Restaurant2881 Grandview Highway, Vancouver
Great Dim Sum Great Price
Submitted Thursday, August 23, 2007 - 1:16pm [Dine in]

I have been three time now to this Dim Sum Restaurant, both times on Saturdays. All three times it was very busy but I never waited more then 5 min to be seated. The staff seem to be friendly and attentitive, tea always gets filled back up when its empty.

The selection is good, maybe not as extensive as some Dim Sums but it always comes fresh and hot,,not soggy and cold like so many other cart type Dim Sums. There is a house selction on the menu as well and you just check off each item that you want on the sheet given to you when you arrive.

Its wise to check off, yourself , with a tick what you have recieved from your orginal order, sometimes its very busy and you might not get all your order yet you could be billed for it anyway, thats my only complaint.

The deep fried Bananas are Awesome......so filling and sweet.

I will definatly go back when in the area and would love to try dinner there, I hear from other patrons that its wonderful.

Simba's Grill825 Denman Street, Vancouver
Simba's needs something more ?
Submitted Saturday, March 24, 2007 - 11:02am [Dine in]

We had wanted to try this restaurant for ages and one night we had the opportunity to try it out. We arrived just after 5 PM I think,,,there weren't very many people there at that time, so we thought that the food and service would be good. It started to fill up pretty quick after that though.

We ordered an appy with chicken wrapped in a Phyllo pastry, it came pretty quickly, but it was dry and we had to ask if there was a dipping sauce. The owner ,a giant man who appears to be very gruff, said "yes we needed the sauce "and promptly brought it to us himself. We found it funny that EVERY waitress there was Japanese with limited english, even the cook was Japanese. We also had to ask for water 6 times to get refilled !

The chicken was merely a sausage and could have been any kind of meat, not distinguishable at all. The sauce was pretty good ,hot ,but then that's African fusion I suppose. Overall the appy was dismal at best,,,,I wouldn't order it again.

For the main course, we split a Simba's Chicken, which is actually a cornish game hen, completly deep fried and cut up, it came with Mogo, which is deep fried cassava root, which were VERY limp and cold to boot. The hen was done alright,,but was very greasy and we had to ask for towel wipes,,

We decided to opt out for dessert, at this point, we had had enough Simba for one night and decided after some thought that we wouldn't be returning.
The place is very pricy for what you get, there are better bets out there for the money,,,,,,,the feeling of being watched by the owner was also a bit disconcerning as well,,,he hovers around and asks why you don't like this and that if your not gobbeling up your meal.

Maybe it was a bad night, or who knows what,,,We were very disappointed with our first visit, after reading the review in the Thursday Province newspaper, we had wanted to try this place for quite awhile and this will be our last visit. Sorry Mr Simba....its just not for us.
