Andreas Restaurant153 16th Street West, North Vancouver
Abysmal
Submitted Thursday, November 10, 2011 - 1:22pm [Dine in]

For better or worse, Andrea's has become something of a staple on the North Shore. Virtually everyone who lives here has visited or ordered from there at least once, and the consensus is generally that the pizza is pretty good. For the unfamiliar, their specialty is ultra-soggy, undercooked, gluttonous pizza with mounds of cheese and pools of grease. The twin consensus among North Vancouverites is that the service and staff are positively abominable. I can only confirm that with a few anecdotes. Every time I have visited, the service was slow, unprofessional, rude, and, if truth be told, handled by extremely sketchy personnel. It was very common to wait over half an hour to place orders, and wait another 45 minutes to be served the wrong food. The management is unbelievably disrespectful and careless. My last experience with them was being cajoled by friends to place a delivery order for their pizza, as we wouldn't have to deal with the atrocious service and vile decor. Surprise, surprise - the order showed up very late, and very wrong. The complaint I made to their management fell on deaf ears, to say the least. And yet their management spends endless dollars flooding every mailbox in North Van with their crappy and garish mail-out ads. The previous reviewer had it right - Andrea's is a zit on the face of the North Shore.

Palki Restaurant116 East 15th St., North Vancouver
I'm a fan
Submitted Wednesday, April 8, 2009 - 1:55pm [Dine in]

I've eaten at Palki three times over the past couple years, and I've always found the food and service to be very worthy of recommendation. I am no expert on Indian cooking, but I've thoroughly enjoyed Palki's wares. (I also really liked Indian Fusion, also in North Van.) I've never been for the buffet, but the chicken vindaloo, rogan josh, butter chicken, naan bread, and pakoras I've ordered in my visits have been delicious, well-cooked, and well-presented. The server (owner?) makes a point of adjusting the spiciness to my taste, and he's always hit the mark with the right blend of heat potency and distinguishable flavour. It is a little pricey, so I can't eat there as often as I might like, but it is a very nice treat.

Colosseum Pizza and Steak107 East 12th Street, North Vancouver
How do they stay open?
Submitted Saturday, March 28, 2009 - 12:16pm [Dine in]

Having moved into the neighborhood recently, two friends and I decided to try out Colosseum. The decor seems nice, the signage is appealing and there is a fairly large patio. Why, I wondered as we were seated, were we the only people in there at 7:00 on a clear and dry wednesday night? Despite that, the service was extremely slow, and our server seemed to be drinking. That is something I wouldn't even mind if our service had been effective or professional. She was overly friendly at first, flaky, and seemingly not in control. It took forever to get our drinks, and she forgot our fresh-cheese-and-tomato appetizer (one of two we ordered in an empty restaurant). When it came, it was a very dismal serving of feta cheese and unripe field tomato slices. The pizzas we had were similarly disappointing, and not reflective of the price. I gather they do a fair amount of take-out business, which must be why it took us over two hours to get served and billed for substandard food in a completely empty restaurant. I am not kidding! I don't know how they pay their rent, as it is a fairly large space, they're open til 2 am, and I've never seen more than one table occupied at any time I've passed by since. I can only speculate that their survival is due to a thriving take-out business, or perhaps something more seedy is going on.
