Sushi Bella152 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
Good sushi, slow service
Submitted Monday, May 11, 2015 - 11:03am [Take-out]

I like the sushi here. Higher end, and slightly higher priced than your average tuna and salmon bulk sushi shops, but fair value. I won't put it on my recommended list though as service is very slow. On our last take out order, had to wait 30 mins past pick up time. This is not the first time, but a consistent issue with Sushi Bella - both take out and dine in. The kitchen simply is not mature enough to manage their workload. My visits here are becoming fewer and far between. The sushi is good, but not good enough to justify the slow service.

Haru Sushi2041 Lonsdale Ave., North Vancouver
Fast & Cheap
Submitted Tuesday, April 14, 2015 - 1:28pm [Take-out]

Sushi for me comes in two varieties. The Fast & Cheap kind, where speed and cost is more important than quality; and the upscale kind that is an art, may take a little longer and will cost a little more. Haru falls into the fast and cheap bucket.

As far as fast & cheap goes though, Haru is awesome. Yes fast, yes cheap (ish), and has a few surprises....massive sashimi, and surprising quality on some of the rolls (soft shell crab and special roll in particular).

If you need good sushi, for take out, in 20 mins, this is your place.

Sushi Mori4740 Capilano Road, North Vancouver
Given Up
Submitted Monday, October 7, 2013 - 2:27pm [Take-out]

I live blocks away from Sushi Mori, and have ordered take out frequently over the last 2 years.

The quality of the food is definitely above average. It easily can hold it's own against other North Shore favourites like Honjin and Hachi Hanna.

The prices are not cheap, but not overly expensive. In my opinion, price is fair value.

My biggest issue with Sushi Mori is the speed of service. Our typical order is roughly $100-$115, feeding a family of four with leftovers for the next day. Without fail, the prep time is never under an hour, and every one of our last 5 orders has seen us waiting an additional 30 mins in the restaurant.

I have finally given up on Sushi Mori. I really like the food, and they are so convenient for me personally, but I simply will not be fooled on more time into waiting 30 mins in the restaurant, even after waiting for a 60 min prep time.

Someone, please update if they fix the service. I would love to return to Sushi Mori, but just won't any more.

Symposio1564 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
Disappointing
Submitted Sunday, December 30, 2012 - 12:28pm [Take-out]

Ordered take out from here last night: A tzatziki appetizer, a roast lamb dinner and a calamari dinner.

On the positive side, the Greek salad and potatoes were really good. Potatoes in particular had a great crunch and soft middle. Top notch.

On the negative side, the tzatziki was quite bland. It was more like greek yogurt with some cucumber shredded in. No garlic. Not to my taste at all.

The calamari was good, but the portion was small.

The lamb was at best average, the portion very small, and for the $18 something they charged, was very poor value.

Neither dinner came with rice, which was fine I guess, but meant the presentation fell short.

We don't have a lot of good Greek options in North Van, but I won't be returning to Symposio anytime soon.

Aria Pizza & Donair112 West 12th Avenue, North Vancouver
This is our default pizza place
Submitted Wednesday, June 16, 2010 - 4:04pm [Dine in]

We have lived on the shore for just over 8 years now. We love pizza and have sampled from many. This is the place we call. The price / quality combination here cannot be beat. In fact, in terms of quality - I'm not sure there are even equals. DJJs is not bad, but not quite. Veneto on Lonsdale is probably in the same ballpark, but it takes those guys an hour to produce what Aria does in 20 minutes. Rebellious Tomato, Panago, Bella, Hell, DDDN need not apply.

Taylor's Crossing Restaurant and Brewpub1035 Marine Drive, North Vancouver
Kid friendly brew pub - THANKS!
Submitted Tuesday, December 11, 2007 - 3:22pm [Dine in]

Thanks to the previous review (by bliss) for suggesting this might be a safe place to go with kids! Finally, an alternative to Boston Pizza, Red Robin and Kelsey's.

First, for adults - it's a brew pub, so beer is good. The red truck is the house brew, and I'd recommend the ale. For food, wife ordered pasta, I had pizza - no complaints. Good stuff. Atmosphere is nice as well - upper end brew pub.

For kids - hostess provides cute "chinese take-out" style loot boxes with crayons and bendable twisty stick things the kids (ours are 5 and 2) had fun playing with. Definitely a step above the typical crayons and colouring menus. Then, to our surprise, a roaming magician came by and did a couple coin tricks (I couldn't figure out how he did them) and made two balloon animals for the kids. (We were there on a Friday, not sure if he's there every night).

One tip: If it's a cold night, ask for table far from the entrance. We didn't and were quite chilly as people came in and out.

Bottom line - this was only our first visit, but Taylor's Crossing could easily become our #1 choice on the shore. Good beer, decent food, entertainment for the kids. This really is a family friendly brew pub.

You Get What You Pay For
Submitted Tuesday, December 11, 2007 - 2:20pm [Dine in]

The first (Kujibo) review hit the nail on the head. The price is cheap, and the quality is on par with the price.

We've ordered three times, and service and quality each time was very consistent. Their phone etiquette is pleasant, the delivery time is fast , always quicker than their estimated time they give you on the phone. The quality is low. It's not horrible, it's just not great pizza. Crust is unpleasantly chewy, toppings are plenty, but do not reach the outter rims of pizza, leaving you with a lot of crust on the edges.

I won't be ordering from here anymore unless, as the previous reviewer mentionned, I'm ordering for a kids party.
