White spot used to be a good - non pretentious - family place, a Vancouver original. But then, they put in the fancy west coast furniture and decor and it just started to become a drag.
The food is pretty average at best, and half of their menu is indian and chinese food. If I want indian or chinese food, I'd go to an Indian or Chinese restaurant. The prices are inflated as well and I find the only good thing is the Ambiance. The locations and dining areas are nice but I would rather pay less for better food instead of sitting in an expensive dining area and be forced to absorb the costs on.
I have given up on White Spot - go back to the way it used to be!

I really like the place - the pasta is always fresh and in big portions. And, I have never had a problem with staff or service.
Again, the value is good considering the portion sizes, but it is pasta so it doesn't cost much to have a huge portion. Still, the pastas are great - try their curried pasta - it tastes a bit fatty because of the cream base but it is delicious.
My favorite pasta place in Vancouver.

Good place for lunch at SFU!
I like their buffet since it has a variety of good eats and currys. It is reasonable price but sometimes out of my lunch budget - $12 + tax and tip.
They have a Value menu which has a bunch of good food items for around the $7 mark. The must try item is the Naanwich sandwich. It has two pieces of naan bread with chicken or cheese and grilled veggies in it.- sometimes I crave it when I am studying.
The food is top quality and always tastes fresh.
The staff are mainly students and I haven't had a bad experience with service.
One of my favorite places and the best at SFU.
Negatives: Kitchen closes kind of early - around 9pm.
