Bistro Pastis2153 W. 4th Ave, Vancouver
first time at a french restaurant
Submitted Thursday, April 29, 2010 - 11:11pm [Dine in]

It was my first time eating french food. Bistro Pastis is a small restaurant but it's pretty cozy and has really nice ambiance. Me and my bf order two appetizers: escargot and french onion soup. Their french onion soup was so so so yummy and their escargot, according to my bf, was very good compared to what he had before. I was already really full after appetizer.

I thought their service time was perfect because i thought I wouldn't be able to eat my entree. It came a long time after appetizer was finished and at first I thought that their kitchen was slow considering we were the only like 2-3 couples that were there at that time. But it turns out that when the entree came, I was well digested and ready to eat. I had the salmon, and it was very good. The French food tend to have different kind of sauce and flavouring. It's very rich.

We had a pretty new waiter so he was very nice and constantly checking up on us. They all speak French which makes my experience there feel more authentic. I also love French bread, very crispy.

I thought the value was pretty good for its price. The salmon plate was ~$26 but it was so filling that I really couldn't think about dessert.

Overall I had a really good first experience at Bistro Pastis.

Sanafir1026 Granville Street, Vancouver
pretty nice ambiance and set up

I went for Sanafir on a tuesday night at 9:30 for dine out. I didn't necessarily go for the sake of dine out, but just a place to meet up with my friends and dineout was on. I had the tomato and lentil soup for appetizer, it was pretty filling for me and the taste was average.

For entree, I had the sea trio. Because it was dineout, the style is prettier and presentation was classier. There was also a small bite size of sable fish and I thought it tasted really good and tender and has a lot of flavour, in that one bite.

Dessert I had baclava, it was my first and I really liked it.

Everything I had came to $18.60. It was a pretty cheap price considering it was dineout, but I can't imagine it being a lot more expensive. For the quality that I got, I don't think I would really pay more than $25 for everything if it were in regular price. It was also a small amount. Considering I managed to eat them all at 930pm at night and I wasn't that hungry, it just shows that the quantity wasn't a lot.

Ambiance was nice, their style is pretty unique. Service was good too, but there weren't a lot of customers so I don't know what it's like when it's busy.

Ajisen Ramen4380 No. 3 Road, #1190, Richmond
Another noodle place
Submitted Saturday, September 26, 2009 - 11:31am [Dine in]

I wouldn't say this is real Ramen. I think it's pretty pricey for a no real ramen. The service was okay, they bring you your water/tea and your meal (thats pretty much it and its expected). The ramen itself is something you can make at home EASILY and not worth speding $8 for. But I do think their gyoza and their pork cutlet is good. The noodles are sometimes a bit too hard sometimes.

Uncle Willy's Restaurant6411 Nelson Ave, #100, Burnaby
Cheap buffet ! A lot of choices
Submitted Saturday, September 26, 2009 - 11:25am [Dine in]

I went there once and pretty much ate a bit from each servings they had. The best meat there is the chicken. I thought the chicken was really tender and good. They had a lot of choices for salads (I went on Sunday for dinner, so I think there are more choices on weekends), different kinds of pastas, and a lot of meat.

Their pop was not that good, they had their own produced pop I think (tasted like a watered down version of sprite/ice tea/coke). I think the best thing I had that night was the chicken, and their ice cream. The ice cream was really rich and you have two choices for toppings. Fudge and butterscotch.

The place is not very clean. Since it's a busy buffet place, it's very crowded, and the plates are usually still wet from just having washed. For dinner it's only ~$15 and lunch is $12-13. I would say it's pretty cheap for so much food offered.

Seto Japanese Restaurant8460 Alexandra Road, #155, Richmond
Decent Rolls but pricey
Submitted Saturday, September 26, 2009 - 11:20am [Dine in]

Pricey restaurant and the food isn't that filling. Although I would say the quality of the food is not bad (since it's more expensive), but I wouldn't say it's extraordinary. Service was decent, a lot of staffs are on you at all times. The atmosphere in the restaurant was nice too, not too crowded, but family oriented. I had a BC roll (which I thought i was decent), some of my friends had donburi's and rolls as well. The donburi amount was really small for its price (really not worth it). if you're really hungry and are just looking for a place to eat, seto is a bit pricey.

Kisamos Greek Taverna3420 Moncton Street, Richmond
Awesome lamb
Submitted Saturday, September 26, 2009 - 11:03am [Dine in]

I've been here about twice now, the first time i went was about 4 years ago and then again recently. The second time I went, i found that their signature Roast Lamb is really worth its value. It's SO good and you can barely finish it. The atmosphere is nice too, except when I went there was only one server so it was really slow. It seemed like the server did accommodate to the customers that well. But overall, the food is pretty decent, and one of the better greeks places i've had.
