Samba Brazilian Steak House1122 Alberni Street, Vancouver
Best AYCE for Carnivores! (with Salad bar, too!)
Submitted Sunday, January 18, 2009 - 12:32pm [Dine in]

C'mon... this place deserves a 5 (Incredible) for both food and value for lunch. How many places do know in Vancouver (or in Canada for that matter) that serves you rotisserie chicken, pork, sausage, lamb, AND beef All-You-Can-Eat *AND* a well-equipped salad bar that includes great tasting seafood for as low as $14 for lunch (Mon-Fri)? The quality of the beef alone for Rodizio is worth the trip!

This is heaven for carnivores! Even the veggies will be delighted to see the wide selection at the salad bar.

If you say there are better AYCE restaurants in Vancouver in terms of quality, selection and price, please post them here because I have seen any comparisons yet to the mighty Samba restaurant!

Afghan Eggplant is delicious!
Submitted Sunday, January 18, 2009 - 12:17pm [Dine in]

I highly recommend going for the Eastern Plate option for lunch. I had the Organic Lamb and Afghan Eggplant. The food is so delicious. The Ambiance makes you feel like you're part of a caravan traveling the rugged mountains of Afghanistan during the silk trade.

Let's just say I left the place happy. The service is excellent where the staff is friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back here for lunch!

Don't have the Chicken Biryani
Submitted Sunday, January 18, 2009 - 12:00pm [Dine in]

The biryani was more Italian than Indian (covered in tomato sauce). For those who grew up with Indian food, the simple a-la-carte test is this:

Order the Chicken Biryani...and hope for the best.

They failed the test. Don't let the aromas fool you. If it doesn't taste like Indian food, you probably got duped.

Nar Cafe Bistro2540 Windsor Rd, Victoria
A hidden gem in Victoria
Submitted Sunday, January 18, 2009 - 11:50am [Dine in]

With a family-run restaurant overlooking Windsor park, having dinner on the second floor is quite a treat. For that special occasion, it is definitely worth it to check out Nar Cafe Bistro. I liked how the menu changes give old customers variety and reasons to come back.

Gorgeous atmosphere, friendly and kind service. If you like to take a break from your busy lifestyle, I recommend coming here for dinner. A wonderful experience that is nicely tucked away in Oak Bay.

The wait for the food was too long.
Submitted Sunday, January 21, 2007 - 9:48pm [Dine in]

I mean over an half-an-hour wait for the food. They got a friend's order wrong. The Tandoori prawn dish was in a curry sauce (hint: it supposed to be baked/dry, hence Tandoori). I prefer the vegetarian dishes (curried potatoes). They were a lot cheaper, too! Basmati rice/Naan bread is extra for meals costing $15.00 or more (which is quite expensive for Indian meals). Not worth the price. Not worth the time. And it was on a Saturday, which is their biggest night! Oh yeah, I ordered a paratha, and they gave me a chapati. I know it's supposed to be fusion but I did not taste any African influences with these Indian dishes. I recommend the chef to visit Sitar in Vancouver's Gastown district where they know how to make Tandoori Prawns served sizzling on a hotplate! The service may not be the greatest there either but at least they know how to make the meals with the right kind of spices to match the items on the menu. I have a strong beef when you order something on a menu and it's totally not what it's supposed to be.
