Favourite Indian food!
Submitted Friday, February 27, 2015 - 11:14pm [Dine in]

I have dined here probably about 4 times now and have never been disappointed! The food had always been amazing and so tasty.
The people who work here are very friendly and the service is great.
The food always comes out very quickly and the portions are a good size as well. Ample parking out front. The only downside is the ambiance and the decor is a little dated.
Overall this is hands down my favourite Indian restaurant and they typically have great monthly specials that include wine, shared appy, main and dessert .

So pleasantly surprised!
Submitted Friday, February 7, 2014 - 4:40pm [Dine in]

I had never heard of this restaurant until a friend suggested it. We are so glad we came!!
The place is not very big but it's dimly lit and cozy. The drinks are soo good, we all enjoyed the Moscow mules and mojitos. We shared crab cakes and chicken wing appetizers, these were all very tasty. And then dinner! The portions were very generous and presented nicely. Tasted amazing! Everyone really enjoyed their food. I had local salmon and risotto, definitely recommend it. Can't wait to go back, only thing to keep in mind is that it can get a little loud.

Tasty Indian Food!
Submitted Monday, August 12, 2013 - 1:07pm [Dine in]

After Bombay Beat closed I needed to find a new indian place. I have dined at this restaurant probably around 6-8 times and I have never had a disapointing meal!

I usually get a vegetarian dish and my boyfriend will get a dish with meat. The vegetable korma and jalfrezie are soooo good. We really like the samosas or pakoras to start! For the main dish they give a big portion size so you will likely have some left overs for the next day.

I have never been to the buffet, just for a regular sit down dinner. The owner and server seem very nice and the service is always good. The restaurant is clean but it doesn't have much decor going on inside. It can be empty sometimes which made us nervous upon our first visit, but the food is great and is worth the visit!

Arms Reach Bistro4390 Gallant Avenue, #107C, North Vancouver
Delicious Food!
Submitted Friday, July 6, 2012 - 11:45am [Dine in]

We went to Arms Reach for a family birthday and the restaurant was packed! We were originally told a 40 minute wait. It was a such a nice day out, definitely should have made a reservation even on a weeknight. We were about to leave to go to the Raven but we asked again and got seated a minute later. The decor in the restaurant is elegant with neutral colours and the view of the water was beautiful! The service was great and a few of us started off with salads. The mains are in the $20-35 range. I ordered the scallops and risotto and it was to die for! I'm still thinking about it! I also tried a bit of the seafood pasta with tomatoes, it was a bit plain but still good. Everyones food was really good and I don't think there was a single complaint. We also received complementary dessert for the birthday which was very nice. The service was great, the food is amazing, and the view of Deep Cove is lovely. Will be coming back again soon!

Fun place with great food!
Submitted Tuesday, June 26, 2012 - 1:22pm [Dine in]

I have been meaning to review this place after going a few months ago with the boyfriend. It was great and alot of fun! We had no idea what hot pot was haha but we thought we would check out a new place in the neighbourhood and it seemed like they had healthy choices. The staff were so friendly and attentive and helped explain how hot pot works. The resturant itself is fairly small but quite modern looking and of course clean. I thought the food and drinks may be a little pricey but I think the hot pot tables/equipment is probably expensive, so from a business perspective I understand. The food was good and overall it was a great experience. They have quite a few options on their menu and you also have the option to create your own meal. Will be coming back again :)

Bombay Beat4266 East Hastings, Burnaby
great food, average service
Submitted Tuesday, June 26, 2012 - 1:09pm [Dine in]

I have ate here twice and this is what I have found for both times:

This restaurant is pretty spacious with enough seating, nice decor, and clean.

The food is so good! I have probably been to 6+ indian restaurants and this one has the best food so far. The butter chicken, veggie jalfrezi, and coconut curry have all been great. You will not be disapointed once you get your meal. You also get a pretty big portion so if you don't chow it all down at once, you may also get a left-over lunch out of it ;)

The service is ...not great. The atmosphere doesn't seem very friendly? I get the vibe that the people working there might not like their jobs? Don't know, but our food really took a long time last time.

Have not had the buffet so I cannot comment on that, but I still like the restaurant and will go back again despite the issue with service.

Thai Cafe4160 Hastings St, Burnaby
Great Thai Food!
Submitted Thursday, March 22, 2012 - 12:49pm [Dine in]

I have been to this restaurant a handful of times and each time I am left satisfied with the fresh food and value! So far the pad thai is my favorite! I have also gotten the fish cake and deep fried prawn appetizer and they were both so good! My boyfriend really likes the curries and always says that his food is amazing too. The staff are also very friendly and the service is good as well.
