What happened?
Submitted Thursday, February 23, 2012 - 1:27am [Dine in]

Since I was a child, I've always passed this place. In my freshman year I started going because of their fantastic vegetarian samosas which were only two for $1 and they gave free chutney. The spices and stuffing was heavenly. For once and place fried food without burning it. The crust was golden crispy and tender at the same time. It was so damn good!!! Later on I started trying their buffet for $8 (I think it was) and that was good value. I even took my mom there once.

Now the samosas have gone to something like $0.80 each, which is still decent but they charge tax now unless you buy 6 or more. You have to ASK to get chutney and the samosas are much smaller. The stuffing is mostly potato and they cut down on their spices.

Okay, stop being to cheap you say...

Let's go to the dining area. What the hell happened? The buffet area is dirty, the naan is soggy, the entrées are soggy and mush, I dare not touch the salad bar and the washroom really has gone down the tubes. I gave them a second chance and dined-in à la carte with my dad. You literally get a cup's worth of entrée and after buying some rice the meal's not even filling for such a high price. I felt like I was drinking gravy. Where was the meat?

Service, however, was impeccable. The waitress talked to us and was genuine. But hey, isn't that her job? Good serve = tips. I can't say that for the kitchen.

Bye bye childhood memory. =[

Just thinking of Pho makes me salivate.

We've been here twice and it's quite delicious here. They make a nice addition to the neighborhood. The washrooms are clean and he dining area is comfortable and cozy. Neither visit was very busy so our food was out in less than 10 minutes. Quality is well... nothing superb, but it satisfied our cravings.

We ordered for ~ $27:

Lemongrass chicken with rice
Rare beef pho with beef balls
Fried spring rolls
Soft spring rolls

They give plenty of garnishing and "cheap" tea was free.

Food:

I had the Vegetable Thali, which featured 3 veggie entree's of the day served with saffron rice, 4 pieces of naan bread, small salad, 3 vegetable pakoras, rice pudding and 2 gulab jamun. This was $16.99 vs. the $18.99 for the buffet. I was overeating like crazy with the thali, so it was a better deal. I could have probably shared it amongst 2 people. I found this to be nirvana. It was a pleasure to savour every bite.

My guest had the chicken curry which was pretty plain. It had chicken in sauce and nothing else. For $15 it was not really worth it. He said it was OK, but nothing spectacular.

Before our meal, we were presented with the standard dosa chips with Hari (clilantro) chutney.

Ambiance:

I'd take a date here. It's candle lit. If you want the buffet, all items are labeled in LARGE letters. When I checked it out, it was cleanly presented.

Service:

Had no problems here.

I've been visiting Will's since childhood back when they still had a place on West Broadway. This place is truly a hidden gem that many Metrotown guest do not know about or just plain pass it by.

Now the food is not 5-star. It's good ol' comfort home food. There's something for everyone from salads, pasta, 'chinese' food to meats and dessert. Round off your meal with the dessert bar. The soft-serve ice cream is probably the best ice cream I've ever tasted - so rich and creamy. Kick it up a notch with hot fudge and caramel and then throw in a couple of chocolate cakes in there or apple crisp and you'll be happy, albeit a million calories way to hyper.

The staff are the centerpiece. As mentioned before, the bussers who clear your table are surprisingly positive. Of all the dining experiences so far, I would have never envisioned saying that this place would have the best customer service. The staff are attentive and actually cheerful, which makes your dining experience a pleasant one. There's such a range of ages of staff from teens to seniors who have there careers here.

With so many positive reviews I'm divided. I love the casual quiet atmosphere. I go before martial arts, reflect or for studying and find it such a pleasant place to just be by myself. It's serene. However, sharing is good and UW's does need our business so I'm happy to spread the word. =]

I tried to like this restaurant, however first impressions are everything in this business no matter who the customer is - seasoned or new. This was my first impression:

1) Waitresses gave us the blank stare whenever we tried to make eye contact. They then then looked away to seemingly avoid us. When they do walk by there are no smiles, no hellos or checking back after you meal to ensure things were right.

2) Which brings me to point 2. We ordered a curry dish and got a different one than on the menu. Seafood curry and we got shrimp curry. $14 for 3 potato pieces and 10 shrimps. Now that is some $$$$$ frozen shrimp. The rice was yellow and dry with burnt pieces. The worse was our Chow Mein which reminded me of leftovers. The noodle weren't even cooked in the center of the plate. Is was cold and soggy with no taste of the wok. I didn't enjoy my meal at all and the waitress did nothing - she walked away after I asked if I even had the right dish.

3) We left with a 50 cent tip to which the waitress was overheard saying "cheap." With such horrid customer service and atrocious food, she was lucky she got anything. I'm not trying to be mean, but nothing was rectified or stood out.

The only positive I got was the Canucks flag hanging over the kitchen entrance. Frankly, I will never return.

This restaurant is dark, very dark. They could spice it up with a tad more lighting or at least some white accents. However the waterfront view is amazing, overlooking the Cambie Bridge.

We went as part of the Taste of Yaletown 2007 event. My selection was the Dungeness Crab salad, Goat Cheese Tortellini and the trio of desserts. The salad was beautifully presented, but mostly was made of shrimp. The pasta was very very plain. All I could taste was cheese. I felt like I was eating a Michelina's frozen dinner. No greens or anything else on the plate. This was more on the verge of appetizer, not entree.

Finally, dessert. We were given a trio of chocolate mousse, strawberry cheesecake and tiramisu. Delicious, but it could save the meal. The problem herein was that the dessert portion was way more filling and larger than the previous 2 plates. For $35 + an automatic $7.00 gratuity, I say it wasn't worth it another trip back. I'm sure regulars would say otherwise, but for a taste festival, it should WOW me and it failed.

Our waiter was extremely attentitive to us, checking with us multiple times.

Docked 1 mark for overfilled garbage bin the the men's washroom.
