Sushi King House8176 Granville Street, Vancouver
The 70th and Granville Street area has alot of Sushi places
Submitted Sunday, November 8, 2009 - 3:50pm [Dine in]

Went here with my family yesterday for lunch. We had made reservations. We arrived with the table already setup for us.

I noticed that all table settings were of the disposable kind - Chopstick, wasabi saucers and even the Bento Box containers. I would have like to see the "Eat in" settings to be more the permanent type. The restaurant is more the "Take out type" and accepted payment is Cash Only.

We all ordered a variety of choices, from Bento Boxes to California Rolls, to Noodles in soup. I would say the Bento Boxes are smaller than the other locations, such as Risty's and Komo Sushi. THe the quality is about the same and the price is the same.

With all the different locations here on Granville Street, this places fits right in as one of those places I would go back to for some inexpensive sushi/noodles.

Beefy Beef Noodle House4063 Main Street, Vancouver
Thought this was another Noodle house
Submitted Saturday, October 31, 2009 - 8:41am [Dine in]

8 of us went there for dinner last night. Before walking in, I thought this was another one of those Vietnamese Noodle houses.

Restaurant looked pretty clean, modern and the w/c were also clean.

We sat down at a table for 8 and ordered 6 diiner items are 3 appetizers. Tea was included.

The Fried tofu and the 2 orders of gyoza came out hot and tasty. My little one ate 4 gyozas and wanted more.

We also ordered the Shrimp & egg on rice, Hot & Sour noodle soup, chicken with noodles, udo chicken noodles and the map pao tofu on rice. Food came out hot and pretty substantial.

The total bill came to 63 bucks b4 tips. They only take cash here.

When we left, the restaurant was still packed.

The waitress was couteous and prompt, refilling tea and cleaning up used dishes on the table.

Weird name, but definitely good inexpensive Taiwannese style food

I have visited this place approximately 5 times in the last year.

5% Discount when order until 2 hours before pickup..

The roles are pretty good and a fair size. Never gotten ill eating these. The place it self looks pretty clean and the service is friendly.

Overall, not a bad place to come for party trays.

Now they charge $2.00 for coffee
Submitted Monday, October 19, 2009 - 8:05pm [Dine in]

All ratings still the same except for Value.

They no longer include coffee with their $2.99 breakfast.

They now charge $2.00 for coffee / tea that cames included a week ago.

I can get 2 eggs, toast, hashbrowns and SAUSAGEs at other places for $3.95 .. Sapodilla is one of them and Risty's on Granville the same.

They also charge $2.00 extra for sausages here.

I guess the deal was too good to be true.

Ikea gives you coffee, 2 sausages, scambled eggs and hashbrowns for only a buck !!!!

L.A. Grill & Bistro8100 No. 2 Road, 128, Richmond
Great Place, Great Food and Great Staff
Submitted Monday, September 7, 2009 - 10:46pm [Dine in]

Went to this place for Lunch this afternoon.

I remember that someone mentioned that the L.A. Grill and Bistro had good food at reasonable prices.

We (4 adults and 4 kids) decided to give this place a try.

We were greeted immediately on entering and seated promptly.

The waitress was very nice and attentive the whole time we were there. She took the order for drinks first and then came back to a couple of times to see if we were ready to order.

We started off with the Nachos, they were served piping hot and crispy, with lots and lots of cheese on them. The serving of sour creme and Salsa was plentiful.

I ordered the LA burger, it was great - served on a toasted kaiser with roasted potatoes which were excellent. Also a side salad came with it. I like that they serve the burger with a healthy side, instead of oily french fries that usually comes with a burger. Other adults ordered the Salmon Burger, Cajun Burger and the Chicken Salsa - their experiences were great also. The kids had the Cheese Garlic Bread and the Chicken Strip and the Prawn Fettuccini Alfredo, all were done to perfection.

The portions were amazing, none of us felt hungry afterwards

We finished it off with the Mud Pie, Chocolate Cheese Cake and another chocolate dessert. Servings were large and plentiful.

The w/c were big and clean and the restaurant was clean and located in a mall location, so had lots of parking.

I wil definitely recommend this to my friends because of the ambience, value and staff attentiveness.

Will try for dinner next time, they have dinner specials for $7.95 - NY Steak on Monday and Grilled Salmon on Thursdays ... they have other specials also.

Boston Pizza8100 Ackroyd Road, #50, Richmond
One last Get-together with friends before summer is over
Submitted Sunday, August 30, 2009 - 10:11am [Dine in]

We chose this place because of their Summer Promotion - Kids under 10 eat free.

12 of us - 6 adults and 6 kids (of which 4 were under 10 yrs old) ventured out to this Boston Pizza. When I made reservation the hostess said that we might have to sit and different tables, when we arrives and asked if they have any open tables for all of us to sit together, they said YES. Good that they are flexible about seating plans.

The waiter was excellent, knowledgable, friendly to the kids and always refilled ice tea and the water and took away the used dishes.

The guys had the Ribber special - the RIbs were excellent - tasty and tender. The wifes had the Pulled Pork, Beef Dip. My wife C said the Beef dip was not too tasty. The kids had the Bug & Cheese, Chicken Strips, Grilled Cheese and Salmon kids special with include drink, side order and dessert (all for free). Overall I think everyone had a good time, had good food and in a good atmosphere.

Location had lots of parking and the w/c were very clean - automatic paper towels and hand wash sinks.

Each family had separate checks, which was okay with them and the 15% gratuity was automatically added on.

Overall, I would recommend this BP ...remember to bring your Airmiles Cards

Family Feat for 6 can feed more!
Submitted Saturday, August 22, 2009 - 9:11am [Dine in]

Went there for dinner last night, we ordered the Family Feast Dinner for 6 costing only $42 b4 taxes.

You get a healthy portion of Cheese Bread to start with, then comes the Pasta (Spaghetti or Alfredo Fetti) - large portion, we got a Ceasar Salad with Garlic bread. Finally came the two medium sized pizza we ordered - Meat Lover's and Chicken Supreme. Pizza were good, not to oily and had lots of Cheese and meat on them.

We were there with 5 adults and 4 kids ... with all the food, we were all satisfied afterwards.

The waitresses very very attentive and refilled water, brought extra napkins and asked how things were. I liked that.

If your kids want a pizza night out ... nothing better than this, variety, lots of food and good company.

Only thing I would complain about is the table edges are pretty sticky, I know they wipe them down, but there must be something else that can be done.

Otherwise, I would definitely come back. My sister also recommends the one in North Van.

Went there for dinner yesterday with the family.

Very Clean eating area and w/c (according to the significant other)

Dim Sum was Hot, but not that tasty or Substantial
Submitted Thursday, July 2, 2009 - 9:05am [Dine in]

Went for Dim Sum yesterday.

The place was clean and choices were hot & steamy. The service was decent.

But I do have some concerns, as I have been to many dim sum places before.

(1) the Pork Siu Mai did not have much pork, but lots of doughy filler - tasted bland and weird.
(2) the Har Gow was quite small and the skin was really thick
(3) the Beef Balls had no taste
(4) The Cha Siu Bau did not have much filling and tasted ike nothing
(5) Spring Rolls ... were good, but very small

Even though the cost was $2.75/plate ... given the above comments, the value was not there.

Will I be going back? ... lets just say there are lots of other places that I don't mind paying a bit more and the quality is better.

White Spot650 41st Avenue, #613A, Vancouver
Not what I would expect from a White Spot
Submitted Monday, June 29, 2009 - 11:00pm [Dine in]

Went there for dinner tonite with the family.
We were seated quickly and our orders we taken quickly.

That is where the service ended ... we waited over 45 minutes for our 2 Legendary burgers and a Grilled Cheese Pirate pack. The drinks came quick tho.

The burgers were very lousy, seems like they gave us 2 patties that had been sitting under a heat lamp for hours ... dry and hard. The fries were the same ... very stale and chewy ... not what I would expect from White Spot. The kids grilled Cheese Pirate pack was not good also. Grilled to long, therefore the crust was burnt and crunchie.

The kitchen staff must have been having a bad day. The wait staff was okay ... but what could they do? The kitchen was producing food so slow and lousy.

Make me not want to go back .. will try other White Spots next time.

Downtown Vancouver Lunch
Submitted Friday, June 26, 2009 - 7:48am [Dine in]

came in at 11:30 (just before the place filled up for lunch), got a table immediately, ordered the Har Gow and Siu Mai appetizer .. these were not bad, steaming hot, juicy and tasted good. For the main course, I ordered the Combo A - Chicken with rice, veggies, soup and a small shrimp side dish. This was a real filling and tasty lunch. My collegue had the Vietnamese Noodle .. it looked substantial and was also steaming hot.

The place is clean, the service attentive .. I will try this place again.

Risty's Cafe and Sushi Bar8542 Granville St., Vancouver
Sushi places around Granville & 70th
Submitted Saturday, June 13, 2009 - 7:22am [Dine in]

Arrived for dinner around 6:30pm.

Seated Immediately, choose a seat by the windows. The bench seat a not bad ... updated from the the old Risty's days.

We ordered the Gyoza and 2 x Chicken Bento Boxes. The kids, especially M gobbled down 3 Gyozas, while S ate 2. We also gave them some Shrimp tempura and California roll and Miso soup.

The meal was solid, not excellent, I found the tempura batter was not light and fluffy and the salad looked a bit timed. But the chicken and the california roll was solid.

The w/c were clean, mens was small, the womens doubled as a handicap one also. The retaurant portion is also clean.

When we were done, the bill came, it had a 10% discount on it .. which is nice. We paid by CC and then we were on our way.

This place will compete again Komi Sushi .. .about a 1/2 blk(south) away, but is worth a try.

Keg Steakhouse & Bar, The1499 Anderson St., Vancouver
Great get together, great location, food was not that good
Submitted Sunday, June 7, 2009 - 8:13am [Dine in]

Came here for dinner on saturday. Choose this place because it is a gret place to meet, the location is accessible, the parking great and the ambiance friendly.

They do not take reservations on the weekends, but we still got our seats immediately (upstairs). The waitress J was polite, attentive and helpful, always refilling water, clearing the table of used plates and recommending drinks, food and dessert.

THe w/c and the restaurant were very well kept - clean and uncluttered.

I ordered a drink (not bad) and cheese bread as an appetizer ... both were good. My main course was the chicken and ribs w/ BBQ sauce. Both the chicken and the ribs were a bit burnt and both were also very dry. Even applying the BBQ sauce on it could not save the meal, I would say the best part of the meal was the french fries 8-0... definitely not worth the value here. I know what you are going to say ... the Keg is about steaks/prime rib ... but I had that the last time I was here and wanted to try something different. I had the Apple crumble for dessert - it was sufficient, but not the best I have had.

Overall, the meal cost me 50 bucks ... the ribs and the chicken are better at the Cactus Club, the drinks are also larger there. But the location and ambiance is better at the Keg (Granville Island).

Saffron Indian Cuisine4300 Kingsway, #5, Burnaby
First time trying Indian Food
Submitted Monday, May 25, 2009 - 8:01pm [Dine in]

Went there for lunch today with some collegues.

The location was good, and I found meter parking available close to the location.

The restaurant ambience is nice and clean.

We all tried the buffet. Since it was my first time trying this type of food, I did nor know what to expect. The buffet choices were not too spicy. I tried the vegetable samosa, butter chicken, the beef and a bit of the other choices.

The lunch was filling, but not knowing what to expect from the taste, i rated the meal decent.

Would I return? Probably not, since Indian food was not to my taste.

I am not saying there was anything wrong with the food, service or value, not at all ... it is just not a choice I would make again.

Angel Cafe5995 Fraser Street, Vancouver
Not bad (HK Style) restaurant
Submitted Friday, April 17, 2009 - 10:49pm [Dine in]

Came here based on Dinehere.ca reviews. We had our usual dishes (What we usually order at Hon's - Richmond).

Restaurant was busy, so we waited for about 15 minutes. Restaurant is clean and service was good. After we ordered, the soup of the day & the free drinks (hot or cold) came soon after. Our first dish arrvied, it was hot and size was larger than Hon's equivalent. Very tasty, the kids M & S enjoyed this Egg noodle with Shrimp dish more than the one at H's.

The second dish that came was incorrect. We told them that, they offered no excuse, they just changed it .. usually at other similar tye restaurants the manager would come over and confirm, but this time they just took it back and brought back the correct one.

Each dish had lots of ingredients, Shrimp in one and Sole in the other.

We will definitely come back here, as the value & food quality was ver good.

Remember to bring cash as this is the only payment accepted.

Anna's Cake House5510 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Actualy the Fresh Fuit Cake was not that good
Submitted Thursday, April 16, 2009 - 5:20pm [Dine in]

Ordering was fine, I asked for a Fresh Fruit Cake that would be large enough for 20 people. They recommended the 7"x14.5" size. I asked if they take credit, they said yes to that also.

Arrived to pick up the cake, it was nicely designed and had the correct message on it. When I brought out my MasterCard, they said SORRY WE DO NOT TAKE Credit Cards ... I replied saying that when I order the cake from there listed phone number on the webpage, the peson I was speaking to said that they did honor credit cards. They replied, "Oh, that's just the Broadway location" .. I tried to show my displeasure ... but I still had to pay in CASH. Why do they have 2 locations, but only one takes Credit cards ... go figure.

Brought the cake home at 5:30pm and was serving it at 7:30pm, we found the cake to be very dry and the real cream to be not "too cremey", the fresh fruit was hard and chunky ... not what I would expect for paying $56 dollars and From Anna's Bakery.

Someone brought a Fresh Fruit Cake from a smaller unknown bakery at Hastings & Victoria to the party .... we tried that cake 2 days later ... and it was still better than the one from Anna's.

I don't think I will be going back to Anna's. I will try Pinehouse next time .. a bit further, but I am sure it will be better.

Not Bad ... but would only come here every once in a while
Submitted Sunday, March 29, 2009 - 8:43pm [Dine in]

Had reservations for 11 ... arrived, our table was ready.

Ordered the Hoy Num Guy x 2 plus 10 bowles of rice, 2 plates of vegetables, some skewers of pork & chicken and 3-4 orders of the bread. The soup came immediately.

The chicken was lightly flavoured, the rice was good, the vegetables are hot and plentiful. The bread was pan fried and was okay. The Skewers were not bad.

This type of dinner is very oily, as the chicken, the rice and the soup are made from the oil of the chicken.

W/C was clean and the ambience was pretty basic.

Overall, the cost came to around $95.00 b4 tips. I would rather go to a chinese restaurant that has "8 items plus one extra" for the same costs ... more variety.

Submitted Thursday, February 19, 2009 - 7:51am [Dine in]

Went there last night with the family. Place was about 25% full but over the course of the dinner, around 50% of the restaurant tables where occupied ... not bad for a Wednesday night. Each one of us ordered from the Dinner Set menu, which by the way comes with a bowl of Soup. We were served Corn Chowder this time, the last time I was here they had Borsht. Dinner came out fast and hot. Not too much MSG in the food, as we were not thristy afterwards. My Sole & Spinach was very good, big pieces of Sole and cremey cheese sauce was very tasty. We also ordered the Curry Beef(not too spicy), House Special Chow Mein, Seafood & Vegetables set and the portguese Chicken .. all were good according to the people who ordered them. Good food presentation also. Price was very reasonable at about $8.95 per plate. W/Cs were clean but a bit small. Total bill came out to $45 bucks for 4 adults and 2 kids. Thats not bad ... I like this place because the ambience is a lot better than places such a Glouschester or other same type of Chinese Noodle houses. Chair were comfortable, no chipped plates. Next time I am going to try the HOT Pot dinner Set ... looked pretty good ... since alot of other patrons ordered it. Only thing is that they only accepted Cash. ... but will definitely try this place for a third time ..

My wife & I decided to celebrate my birthday here.

We arrvied on time and were seated quickly. We ordered from the Dine Out Vancouver Menu and had the recommended wine with the main course. The Homemade open ravioli of jumbo prawn & diver scallop was amazing, the Banana and chocolate tango for dessert was great. The main course was good also, but the portions were extremely small. I know, one is suppose to go to this restaurant for the view & ambience, but the FOG had covered everything up. But that is why I rated the Value at only a "2" .... for the same cost, Seasons (QE Park in Vancouver) offers a better value.
