Parfait-a-Pia4697 Kingsway, Burnaby
Cozy Coffee Shop, desserts look good
Submitted Monday, February 11, 2008 - 3:06pm [Dine in]

Came in here cuz waves and bbworld on kingsway were both PACKED. We just wanted coffee and to our pleasant surprise, I think we've found our hangout spot. This place looks like it just opened so there was only one other couple in the shop having dessert. We had Americano coffee instead of the decaf we ordered at no extra charge. VERY GOOD. My frnd's milk tea was average she says. However, their parfaits looked excellent, lots of icecream in the cup. Their cakes looked not too bad either. They also serve paninis I think. Good place to chat cuz it's quiet. They got mags and even a chess board. Only complain is that when the owners' friends came in, they basically ignored us and I don't think they even noticed that we had left the store.

NOT worth it at all
Submitted Monday, February 11, 2008 - 2:53pm [Dine in]

Drove 40 min from bby to the place, not knowing it was so far and after hearing good reviews here. Got there at 11:30, NOT OPEN till 12pm...wierd, especially for a weekend. Waited and waited and at 12 pm sharp, a girl opens the door. NO Hello, NOTHING. we sat ourselves. Us 3 ordered a Dharma burger, Bengal Burger, and Dharma Salad.Salad came first...basically just grilled veggies on a bed of green lettuce. THAT's IT.Burger looked simple...lettuce, tomatoe, vegie patty on a superstorish hamburger bun. I got side greens and my frnd got potatoes (basically just boiled potatoes cut into slices). Only thing good was the sauce. good thing they smothered the burger in it. OTHER than that, nothing surprised me and I vow NEVER to go back again. WE were the ONLY people in the restaurant for lunch on a sunday... now i understand why.
oh yah, service sucked, the 2 servers looked like they just woke up and was not very friendly. I suspect the previous good reviews were all rigged cuz it just was not as good as the other vegetarian places I've tried.

superb food, great service, loud experience
Submitted Thursday, May 24, 2007 - 1:09pm [Dine in]

Went here for my bf's bday. Was greeted by a very friendly and presentable hostess right when we entered the door. We were the 2nd table that night (6:30 on a Wednesday night). Our waiter was veryyyy nice and seriously had the nicest skin ever. I suppose he's french because of his accent.

We ordered 4 appetizers: the bone marrow, quail, lobster salad, and fois gras. ALL WERE SUPERB!! loveeee the bone marrow- wat a nice suggestion from our server. The quail had too much stuffing but was good still. Lobster salad was fresh and had alot of lobster- to our surprise. The fois gras was so juicy and tasted nicely with the sauce. We also ordered the rabbit as a main dish to share. The service was HUGE - to our surprise as well. It came with skinny fries and a side plate of veggies. The dish was good but also had too much stuffing and not enough meat. For dessert we had the proliferolles which was 4 puff pastries with vanilla icecream and the BEST chocolate syrup ever! Then we were given complimentary crocodile chocolates which was a nice touch for the end of the meal.

Along with a bottle of pellgrino and a beer, our bill came up to be $120. TOTALLY worth it for the food, presentation, and friendly/speedy service!!!! wayyyy better than places like chambar that charge you too much for your food.

Only complaint: TOO LOUD! they should give large parties private rooms because it ruins the evening for people who are there to celebrate romantically or for a quiet dinner.

badddddd service, good food
Submitted Thursday, March 8, 2007 - 9:52pm [Dine in]

omg i totally agree with all of you! My family and I go there all the time because they have really good sushi at reasonable prices. When they were first starting out, all the people there were really nice and friendly, but as the restaurant gained popularity and got busier, the service went downhillllll. I especially dislike the girl at the cash who answers the phone, she is so rude. Never smiles and only flirts with the male customers (saw for myself one time when I went to order take out). There is one girl who's worked there for a long time, long black hair, usually in a pony tail- she's alright. The others are just horrible, never smiles, and seems to get angry when you ask for things.
BAD BAD service. We should all let them know when we go eat there next time so maybe they'll fire some of the waitresses.

Over priced food, small, average taste, very disappointing
Submitted Tuesday, March 6, 2007 - 3:02am [Dine in]

Went here with my family of 6 on a Monday night. We ordered: 5 combo sashimi for 20$ - very fresh and nice presentation. 2 ebi mayo - 6 pieces for (around 7$ each plate)..pretty good, but nothing amazing. 1 seafood springroll- 4 small pieces for around $5. 2 "special" negitoro sushi-3 pieces each for around 7$ each! however it was very soft and tasted good but not worth it. 1 "special, # 1 order" scallops in cod sauce for $10!!! this was seriously 2 pieces of scallops cut into 3 pieces each...we each had one tiny bite of scallop~overly priced and very bland, biggest rip-off ever!!! 1 order of salmon carpaccio-pretty good, but not as big as hapa's, for around $7. 1 Unagi bowl for around $8-very small, probably half of hapa's stone bowls and tasted average. 1 Ramen salad-pretty good for $6.8. 1 jalapeno pasta-took FOREVER. It was one of the last dishes to come, and only because we reminded the waiters 3 times-very plain looking AND plain tasting. A little too salty as well. 1 chicken karaage-nicely fried with 3 different salts for dipping...all for show, tastes the same to me however one of the better dishes for around $5. 1 cuttlefish tempura-probably one of the best dishes...would go great with some sake or beer. 1 order of oyster motoyaki-2 pieces-the oyster meat was still cold underneath the baked cheese! 1 order of the ebi chilli wrap-tasted horrible! came with 1 pita torn in half with a small cup of wierd tasting tomato sauce with ebi and cheese-around $8. We ordered quite a lot of food, probably almost everything off their menu. The service was very slow considering it was a monday night and the restaurant was not even full. The servers were quite polite, but that's how they are at izakayas. They kept switching our plates-kinda annoying.I WOULD NOT recommend this to anyone, goto the other GUU's or hapa or even Chopstix in Yaletown for better food, cheaper prices, and faster prep times.

Food's not Good
Submitted Tuesday, February 20, 2007 - 1:45am [Dine in]

Went here for lunch wit my parents today. On a rainy Monday around 1pm, the restaurant was considered pretty busy. We were seated right away and got the window seat we requested. My parents were impressed with the view of gastown from where we sat and we enjoyed how bright the dining area was.

Right away we got water and bread. The bread was soft and pretty good.

That's where it ends. We ordered their panini, seafood chowder, and halibut and chips. The panini had a generous amount of deli meats but was way too salty and the focaccia was hard. My mom disliked the sauce alot- tastes like pizza as she puts it. The fish had too much batter and was not even comparable to the ones they have in Deep Cove (which is the best my parents have ever tasted - so they say, and I think I agree). The side salads had too much vinegrette on it. The fries were not bad, but very average. Seafood chowder was pretty good but not worth the $6 for its volume.

Overall, nice location, okay service, disappointing food.

Went here for Vday wit a bunch of my girl friends. The host who took us in was pretty humorous and friendly, however I did not enjoy our server. She kept forgetting our water and wasn't too friendly.

The food looked better than it tasted. We got the prawn curry, butter chicken, spinach curry, appetizer platter, and tandoori platter to share (along with a bottle of chardonnay at 30$). Although they all tasted good, I wasn't too excited or astonished by the food. Basically the curries tasted the same, there was no distinct flavor to them. The naan was burnt and you could actually taste that. The tandoori platter was a little better (lamb and fish were the best).
Our group agreed that it doesn't taste as authentic as restaurants like The Original Tandoori King (mmm so good). Overall, I don't think I'd visit it again since there are many better tasting Indian restaurants out there for better prices too. The ambiance was not bad though, pretty casual too.

Very disappointed for DineOut 2007
Submitted Friday, February 2, 2007 - 11:16am [Dine in]

Went there with 11 of my friends yesterday for dinner and got their 35$ dineout menu. I was so disappointed I even signed up for this website just so I can say how bad it was. It is DEFINETLY not worrth the $44 after tax and 18% gratuities that we each paid. I got the salad, grilled fish, and toffee pudding. My sister got the soup, 'petit' hen, and the creme brulee. The dessert was quite good, however, the pudding was too sweet and the creme brulee tasted like any other creme brulee. The salad was pretty cheap, best part were the candied walnuts in the plain looking, wierd tasting salad. The soup was not bad, but any of safeway's cream soups woulda tasted the same. My fish was the worst part, it was the smallest piece I've seen at a restaurant and I mean I could grill a fish and call it a dish. Oh and on the menu it said 'Ravioli' with the fish, literally it was ONE piece. My sister's chicken looked the most tasty but it was very average. We all said it tasted like chinese home style cooking where all of us could make ourselves, add some soy sauce, rice wine and you got your 'petite' hen. There was some pasta underneath and it had nooooo taste whatsoever. My friends also got the steak, they were shocked at its size, considering we went to Gotham's last year for dine out and they gave a huge piece of steak and we were all so stuffed. My friend said he thought he got someone's left overs.The service was slow, and not too friendly. The hostess at the front should get shot and they definitly don't deserve a %18 automatic gratuity charge.The good part of the night was the nice ambience of the restaurant, good place for just a few drinks. Such a huge disappointment considering how the media mentions so much of elixir/opus lounge and the chef appeared on City Cooks. So not worth the hype. It's stupid how they cheap out for the Dine Out when it's a time to impress new customers. Definitly would not go back.

Yum, special rolls!
Submitted Friday, February 2, 2007 - 11:03am [Dine in]

After class one day, my sister and I decided to check out Kadoya on Davie. After checking out some pics of the restaurant from my friend's blog, I just had to go and try the sushi. IT WAS SO GOOD! We got the Canucks roll and the Maple Roll (7.95 each). Both were delicious and huge - 8 big pieces each. Then we each ordered a sunomono which was not worth the 4$ each. Small and you had to choose ONE of prawn, tako, kani, and clams. Just make it yourself at home, it's so simple!
We went around 6 pm on a Thursday and it was not packed at all. However, it did get filled around close to 7 when we were just leaving. I don't enjoy the tight seating spaces, but then again, they had to make use of the small restaurant. The restaurant is kinda easy to miss, right across from celebrities on Davie. Check it out!
