Fantastic dim sum
Submitted Tuesday, October 28, 2008 - 5:55am [Dine in]

Seems I only go to chinese restaurants mostly for dim sum and on a late Sunday morning we came here looking for the same.

No reservations so that meant braving the long wait. We were seated after about 20-25 minutes.

Unfortunately I can't read chinese so I had to ask for a menu to cross reference the dishes on the item list. We of coursed were looking for the favourites. My girlfriend had been craving those seemingly rare Taro Dumplings and after going through the decently sized list a couple of times we got confirmation from a server that they do not have that dish. Oh well.

One dish arrived at first and after nursing it for a bit our remaining dishes all came at once scalding hot. Shrimp Dumplings were excellent quality the skin was perfectly done firm and not mushy and good size. The Deep Fried Squid was lightly battered and fried a faint golden yellow and the pieces were tender.

It was especially busy on a Sunday but driving by on a regular basis the parking lot is usually filled up. I came here years ago and it seems they've renovated the place (or at least freshened it up) and looks several notches nicer than what I remember. The customers there dressed unusually nice on that day but seeing the types of cars outside this place seems to attract a slightly higher end patron.

Service was good many of the servers gave long passes across the floor to check up on tables. It's noisy and the tables were a touch close so it felt a little discomforting while I was eating (perhaps facing the front entrance where hungry customers were waiting didn't help either).

Braving the hustle and bustle and a long wait it's a good bet for your first meal of the day. Probably a good bet for dinner too which I'd like to come back here for.

Great views a booster on otherwise ordinary
Submitted Thursday, October 23, 2008 - 11:58pm [Dine in]

It's amazing how much a great view can prop up an otherwise ordinary restaurant.

It was a later evening dinner on a rainy weekend so the patrons were sparse and quiet. The front hostess was friendly enough at bringing us to our table by the window facing the water. Our server for the night was quiet with few words. He did everything you could count on but his spirit was elsewhere. Pained to see considering the atmosphere this place is trying to achieve.

We shared a Spinach Salad before our entrees came, my girlfriend the Risotto and me the Roasted Halibut. The Risotto was largely portioned and creamy but a bit simplistic on taste. The fish was flaky and perfectly cooked. Portion was typical but perhaps deceiving as it was served on a larger than usual plate. Steep on price, however.

Food was good given the cuisine but their meat and fish entrees are formal in price and doesn't stack up to the casual ambience and decor. If not for the view it would've been harder to give it a 4.

Don't come here with expectations.

Tropika4151 Hazelbridge Way, #1830, Richmond
More than standard fare you can count on
Submitted Thursday, October 23, 2008 - 11:26pm [Dine in]

Having had decent to excellent Thai-Malaysian style food a place like Tropika can be counted on for consistency.

I really like the open, airy yet casual environment and the foliage inside doesn't feel misplaced at all. It's always busy when I've gone and you can smell the aromas blanket across the room.

The colourful menu makes deciding on only a few dishes very difficult. Still we usually end up with the Kababs, the incredible Naan, Pad Thai, Green Beans with Shrimp, Lamb Curry, Fried Rice and Tilapia. Good flavours all round and mimics the taste of each previous meal. Great dishes to go for if you're not sure what to order. The Green Beans are too oily for my liking but that's about where the negatives end. The Lamb Curry and Naan Bread are always the highlight. I suggest 2 orders of Naan for 2 people.

Service is dependable but the kitchen can get backed up during the busy dinner hours. Servers don't say much but do what is needed.

This is my preferred location based on the consistency of their food and service. Probably the best chain-franchise alternative.

Reliable drinks but forgettable
Submitted Thursday, October 23, 2008 - 11:09pm [Dine in]

I've come here mostly as a gathering point with friends to hang out for an hour or so.

There's 2 levels of seating but overall it's still a small place.

It's been the same few employees there over the years and they are friendly enough but the wait times for your drinks vary between slower and a crawl.

Like many similar places they have a minimum order. We mostly come here for the drinks (either the fruit slushes/smoothies, bubble tea or steeped tea). On the rare ocassion we'll get a plate of Fish Cakes or a Crepe. The bubble tea and slush/smoothies are made well but they do run out on (or don't have in stock) some fruits (season dependent). I've ordered the Lychee Slush without Milk and it's only OK compared to other places. They don't use chunks of lychees which is a little disappointing, but most places don't use it either in my experience. Their food dishes are typical and not something I would go out of my way for.

Decent place for drinks but not my top few choices.

Tasty, fresh, simple desserts but expensive
Submitted Thursday, October 23, 2008 - 10:54pm [Dine in]

I came here with a few friends since they wanted to try out this new place.

The decor is simple yet colourful and their colour scheme works well with what they serve. Bright lighting and hip mandarin music round off the atmosphere.

Their menu is large but much of the same thing throughout, with the differences being the type of fruit used mostly. Most of us stuck to something with mango in it, with me getting the Fresh Mango with Sago and a Scoop of Ice Cream. It was refreshing albeit ordinary. I felt I could've used a little more in the end considering it was something like $5-6 for it.

Our waitress was friendly and had fluent english so there was no communication problems. We had a conversation with her trying to see if she knew who was the singer of one of the songs that came on.

I am not exactly a fan of asian dessert places considering the simplistic menu choices and the prices associated to it but it is a nice refreshing option for a hotter day or a change from the usual cake places.

Decent afternoon dim sum
Submitted Thursday, October 23, 2008 - 10:34pm [Dine in]

Craving dim sum one Sunday afternoon the girlfriend and I came here just to see how it was.

It's a large restaurant but the ambience was a bit tame. I guess you can't expect much hustle and bustle when you're in at 2pm. There was a decent crowd scattered about but was pretty quiet.

It's push cart style so we kept peeking over our shoulders hoping some different carts would come by. It was the same carts mostly circling the floor with a few carts coming out of the kitchen with different items. We managed to grab our favourites: Shrimp Dumplings, Deep Fried Pork & Taro Dumplings, Beef Rice Roll and a couple others. OK in taste (a couple of steamed dresses a tad greasy) but shame it was lukewarm. Understandably when you're dining about an hour before they close up to prepare for the dinner rush the kitchen staff isn't going to be making much more new items so whatever's left laps the restaurant.

Service was good we were able to quickly get a server to refill our teapot and request a couple of condiment sauces without haste.

The dishes would taste pretty good if hot out of the kitchen so I would like another visit in the future.

Great dim sum, come before 11
Submitted Wednesday, October 22, 2008 - 5:02am [Dine in]

I've brought my family, relatives and friends here for dim sum as quality counts here so I can feel confident they'll leave with a smile and a satisfied belly. Try to come before 11 as prices are cheaper.

I've ordered all the dim sum favourites here including a few offbeat items like the individual shark fin soup. No carts here so your dishes come out piping hot. Shrimp Dumplings are well sized and with many plump shrimps. I accidently ordered the Deep Fried Salad Rolls (mixed fruit and mayo) once and would not care to order them again. Dishes are fairly sized and a touch milder in flavour so it's perfect for those with a vanilla palette.

Service is good as there are always servers around to handle patrons in need. I haven't had an issue with them and there were especially accommodating when I brought my 91yr old grandmother here during a busy morning.

A safe choice for fresh, hot dim sum in a clean room. Excellent value if you can catch the early bird discount.

Cheap eats
Submitted Wednesday, October 22, 2008 - 4:48am [Dine in]

Came here to meet with a fellow colleague for lunch. We shared a couple of dishes and nursed the hot complimentary tea.

I ordered the House Special Chow Mein while my fellow eating partner picked ther Sinagapore Style Fried Rice. Average portions in comparison and ordinary in taste however typical quality of like cafes. The Fried Rice was better of the two mostly because the egg noodles used in the chow mein tasted a little stale.

Service was decent with no complaints. Waitresses were nonchalant but were readily accessible and topped our teas a couple of times.

Wouldn't write off this place. Warrants future visit.

Too fussy a place
Submitted Wednesday, October 22, 2008 - 4:37am [Dine in]

The only times I come here are because of birthday celebrations. It's a bustling large place but not necessarily good for large groups as you're likely relegated into their seemingly shrinking booths where you are basted in the surrounding aromas and smoke.

Going for the BBQ you tick off a list of all the raw stuff you want. We always load up on the meats since there never seems to be enough of it and much of it that doesn't end up on the plates ends up getting burnt or falls through the grill. The grills can't seem to handle the load over the course of a meal and always feel like it runs out of steam before we're satisfied.

Service gets amazingly slower with each visit. Considering much of the items on the menu need not be cooked it sure takes a long time for it to come out of the kitchen. There are considerable lengths of time between orders and when they do come it's a mad rush to clear the area where the server is setting down all the little dishes. It's not unusual for a server to forget some items so count on it. What's worse than the service is the short 1.5hrs time given for your table to finish your meal and much of the time is spent waiting for your food to come. There doesn't seem to be a strategy to get around the slow service. Often I do come out full but never a satisfied feeling.

Not much value considering the slug-like service and having to cook your own food all in a short allotted time slot. I don't mind as it can be a fun time done sparingly (once a year thing) but not on a regular basis.

Capone's Restaurant & Live Jazz Club1141 Hamilton St., Vancouver
On the expensive side
Submitted Wednesday, October 22, 2008 - 4:08am [Dine in]

On the Hamilton strip this narrow space become a beacon for me for a short period. The ambience is upbeat with the live jazz band playing at the backend of the restaurant. It's cramped but you can manage as long as you don't mind the waitresses dancing over your head to get across the room. The live jazz drowns out most conversations and depending on your proximity to the band can be uncomfortable to eat in.

Having had many of the salads, appetizers, a couple pasta dishes and the B.C. Halibut it's a little better than good but nothing that wowed my tastebuds. I've heard horror stories with this place but the food has been consistent. The Dessert Sampler albeit good was only a combination of 2 other desserts on the menu and presented in a more formal manner. Their Martinis are good so check them out.

Some of the servers there seem to be a bit absent minded sometimes spending too much time at the bar socializing with the bartender but are easy to call over and they do come over to check up on you.

Prices overall are steep with little (if any) of the extra money paid to show for in their dishes. Perhaps it's used to offset cost of the bands that come through regularly.

After many visits I still can't make a definitive decision about this place. Offbeat in about every aspect it's feels better suited as a place to gather with friends for drinks on a Thursday night.

Safe choice is a comfortable setting
Submitted Wednesday, October 22, 2008 - 3:41am [Dine in]

I came here for an afternoon office farewall party. Once you walk in everything feels deliberate in offering a safe, yet conservative dining experience. Several members where already present so I made my way to our table.

The decor is refreshing yet calm and understated. It certainly helps when much of the view casts over the beautiful VanDusen Gardens with floor to ceiling windows showcasing the Garden's bounty.

Servers are genuine and very friendly and suit the environment and patrons. I ordered the BC Salmon which was prepared in a light sauce with some autumn vegetables. I am not certain but the salmon may have been poached, nevertheless it was well prepared and tasty.

A cautious choice that delivers. A great option in the spring or summer months for out of town relatives or your grandparents.

Good for a burger and a game
Submitted Wednesday, October 22, 2008 - 3:10am [Dine in]

Another restaurant I've gone to on and off. I guess it's considered part of the Riverport Complex and shares a wall with the Bowling Alley next door.

It's a pretty open and airy space for a pub and is divided so even children can dine here. I've stuck to the usual Burger or Club Sandwich each time since the mood calls for it whenever I'm here. Burgers are good and what you'd count on for pub style food. Club is good as well although heavy on the ketchup making for a bit of a mess on my lap once. Contrary to the other reviewers I LOVE the raw minced garlic on their fries. I don't find the amount of garlic used generous, if anything overpowering because it's finely minced. It does mention itself on the menu (and the servers reiterate it as well) so hold off on it if you don't like it. Soda is not refillable which is always a downer when I finish the last of my drink so sometimes I ration my gulps.

Service is slower but at least they have TVs to take your mind off as you wait.

I don't have a problem coming here once in a while but until then I can wait until my next appearance.

Why is it so busy?
Submitted Wednesday, October 22, 2008 - 2:47am [Dine in]

I've come here about half a dozen times and each time is more awkward than the last.

Always packed during the evening hours until closing with stylish preteens and a loud buzz in the air. Mostly booths with bright lighting there is a lot of young eye candy around, patrons and servers alike. Although mostly an asian crowd, being asian myself this is one place where I feel so out of place.

I think this place is the first of its kind and since then a bunch of imitators have sprung up. Mostly known for their drinks you can also order appetizers and meals. Nothing about it is special except maybe the glasses they serve their drinks in. Their Bubble Tea drinks are good (their coconut jelly is a little bland) but they also come with a higher price (and probably with slightly less volume). I've had a few of their fried appetizers which were pathetic altogether and they all tasted alike. All these places must buy the same boxed seasoning packages. These types of establishments are also the only places where you could get away with charging almost $10 for instant noodles.

Servers are young, cute and friendly but wished some could grasp the english language better (fault of the Manager). They probably need a few more drink machines running to keep up with the volume coming in so sometimes it was a snail's crawl coming to the table.

If you have to come for the drinks only. The food and atmosphere is more fitting for the giggly and young teen crowd who are still developing their palettes.

Simpatico Ristorante2222 West 4th Ave, Vancouver
They've run their course
Submitted Wednesday, October 22, 2008 - 2:23am [Dine in]

Great location with equally traditional, rustic looking decor. It's fantastic when it's sunny out and they leave the windows open to the street.

Although a large restaurant for it's kind there only seems to be at most a couple of waitresses working the floor. Hate to see how service is when it's busy. I've had a more mature lady serve us both times I've gone. She is professional and friendly and fairly speedy.

I've had their highly touted pizzas made with whole wheat flour. It comes perched on a rack but the pizza did not live up to the hype. Not that it was bad but I've had similar almost everywhere else and there was no reason it would stand out.

The Moussaka is decent a little overdone. Roast Lamb is fork tender but more stringy than what I've had. Their Stuffed Cannelloni is also decent but the tomato sauce was somewhat runny. The Homous is good but bland, and the drizzle of oil on top seemed nothing more than either low grade olive oil. It also comes with slices of bread on the side but you mind as well order the Pita Bread as what was accompanied was stale.

I've come here a couple of times (the second time on the basis that I had hope it would be at least decent like the first) but after the last experience I won't be coming back. Apparently a fixture since 1969 it seems nowadays only the nostalgia remains. Look elsewhere.

L.A. Chicken11780 Thorpe Road, 160, Richmond
Best fried chicken available at the moment
Submitted Wednesday, October 22, 2008 - 1:31am [Dine in]

Ever since I lost my chance to have another try at Popeye's I've been looking for another fried chicken place around town and this place seems to fill the void nicely.

Tired looking the only thing being updated here are the free newspapers scattered on the bench tables. There are only a handful of stools to sit down on and a couple of small tables as this place is mostly for takeout orders only. Customers seem to come in few and far between and is everything but bare when I've gone.

Aside from that, the fried chicken has been the best I've had since Popeye's and maybe even a little better than that. Each time I've ordered the 3pcs meal (a touch over $10) which comes with fries, gravy and another side of your choice. During my last visit I ended up ordering another side but received no drink. I'm curious if the sides and drink are interchangeable. The chicken is always made to order during my visits there and you can choose between original and spicy. I didn't ask but you might want to specify dark or white meat since I tend to get 1 piece of white meat each time. Expect to wait a good 10 minutes. I find it amusing that the counterperson uses the mic and intercom to call up your order.

I always opt for the spicy version and it packs a punch. Pieces are large and the batter is extra crispy and thick yet not particularly greasy either. It has much better flavour compared to KFC or Churchs and is more reminenscent of Popeye's if for comparison's sake. The fries are of heat lamp variety and the sides are similar to Churchs as is the gravy. Stick with the chicken!

I haven't been here in a while so I hope this review isn't a false hope for the like-minded who enjoy this guilty pleasure. It's definitely worth a try once in a while for that artery clogging goodness. Would hate to see another standalone fried chicken joint disappear.

Provence Marinaside1177 Marinaside Cres, Vancouver
Excellent brunch menu selection
Submitted Wednesday, October 22, 2008 - 12:01am [Dine in]

I've always come here between their Breakfast and Lunch hours either on my own or to mingle with clients. I haven't had a chance to try their dinner menu but I did bring my girlfriend here for Valentines and we had their set menu.

It's a trendy location and Provence seems to suite it well. The food is far from trendy which is a relief considering the area.

I really like the decor but the ambience is somber. There's not much noise from the patrons early in the day (noticably louder at night). It's upscale-esque with subtlety and without a trace of ostentatiousness. I suppose it treads on a Meditteranean feel. Unfortunately tables are cramped together and feels obtrusive when it's busy as you can overhear your neighbour's conversation with clarity.

Service is impeccable and should be expected each visit there. The servers all seem ready to answer any spur the moment questions and are fantastic at recommending dishes. I would demand no less now that I know how good it can be.

I've ordered something different each visit there (which is a rarity for me) and it never disappoints. Off the top of my head I've had the: Smoked Salmon Eggs Benny, Waffles, Crab & Lobster Omelette, Fish Soup, Seafood Spaghettini, Caprese Panini and Sablefish. Very good quality with the ingredients used and how it was made. No surprise as this is what one would expect at the very least with their prices although I still think it is harder on the wallet than it should be.

I can empathize and see how one could not like this restaurant but I harbour no ill feelings with this location and have enjoyed every visit. It can be pretty quiet depending on what times you go but everyone could use some quiet time once in a while.

Hennessey Dining Lounge53 West Broadway, Vancouver
Forgettable
Submitted Tuesday, October 21, 2008 - 11:22pm [Dine in]

Driving past this place for a long time I had no idea it was a lounge and since it's always good to add a few more places like this to my list I gave it a try one day and have since come here a handful of times more than I should of.

They have a small tapas menu alongside a short list of burgers and a couple of pasta pieces. It seems they want you to come here for the drinks and I'm not surprised. Their Steak & Chicken Nachos consisted of a dozen or so medium tortilla chips plated neatly with a small helping of toppings with a piece of meat on each piece. Their 3 of a Kind Pasta on a plate was cute on paper but plain on taste and is nothing more than a few bites. I've had a few other dishes but were completely not worth the thought.

Drinks are only OK. The girlfriend and I usually order Cocktails or Martinis but they seem to have different bartenders on hand and have gotten inconsistent results ranging from poor to decent at best.

They have Improv on Sundays at 9pm and were once asked (either an employee for Hennessey or part of the Improv) if we wanted to stay as it would cost $5/person to watch it live. Luckily we were finishing up our meal and declined, and for the better. We managed to catch the first 15 minutes or so and it was lame, with the stage performers shooting out expletives left, right and center to make up for their hurting material.

Servers disappear into the kitchen or if they're on the floor they seem impossible to flag down and give the impression that they are ignoring tables. It took us a good 20 minutes to get a waitress to deliver our bill. Please.

Decor is nice with some comfortable seating areas and a tiny area for the live DJ or stage performances by local artists. It's loud and somewhat echoey unless there's hardly any patrons inside.

This is a "worse than bar" type establishment masked as a more upscale lounge using their desperate attempts of selling you on their "organic" menu. Food is decent but they seem to think that reducing dishes to rabbit food portions while keeping prices the same as a model for being "upscale" is laughable. Hard to find anything positive to write about this place. Pass.

Samosa Garden Restaurant3502 Kingsway, Vancouver
Mostly ordinary
Submitted Tuesday, October 21, 2008 - 8:12pm [Dine in]

I've come to Samosa Garden the most out of all the other Indian restaurants and I can only sum it up as inconsistent.

I'm leery on the buffet there since the trays are usually worn through on my dining trips there so we stick with the menu items. The Butter Chicken is alright decent flavours but oily. Generous on the pieces of chicken, however. The Tandoori is also ordinary resembling moreso something out of a mall takeout joint. The Samosas are pretty good with a nice flaky exterior. I remember my first visit there years ago I ordered some sort of minced beef or pork kebabs and it was loaded with sodium. Yikes. Having never ordering that again I don't know if it was the way it was suppose to taste. Naan bread is large although sometimes a bit charred. Overall the meals I've had here it's been good but having had homemade and at other Indian restaurants it has so much more potential.

Service has been good but looking around I can't help but think it is the owner's children helping out. The are polite but are a bit slow and seem to disappear into the kitchen at times.

Decor is casual without the rich reds you'd see elsewhere.

This place could do way better (most notably their food) but they seem to be comfortable at where they are now.

Impressive in size
Submitted Tuesday, October 21, 2008 - 8:00pm [Dine in]

This is another one of those "hole in the wall" restaurants that I had driven by frequently and always wondered at a stoplight but never gave it a chance. A few friends and I came here one night.

Place is mundane and cold with a couple of TV's on showing local colour. There was only 2 servers on the floor; one of which seemed to take the bulk of the work. It took a couple of minutes but we were seated. Throughout the meal I couldn't help but notice the main server wearing a path between kitchen and tables. They need some more servers on the back end.

It was the first time I had a Dosa so I didn't know what to expect. Looking at the server bring orders going to other tables it looked enormous. I settled on the Vegetarian Dosa. I remember it came with a few small accompanying sides. Everything was passable but the Lentil Soup was delicious. Great flavours and with a kick of heat that hits afterwards. The Dosa itself spanned the length of the dish and took up most of the plate's real estate. Looks were deceiving once I started making my way into the dosa. It took several bites before I had any of the filling. Nearly finished I concluded that the filling was lacking leaving me somewhat disappointed and a little hungry still (as were the rest of my friends). Tasty overall. Since I have no basis for comparison I can't say if the skant filling is how it is usually done although a few spoonfuls more would've been much appreciated.

It took a while for us to collect our bill. A sign that was definite from what I saw that night.

Doesn't seem to be something I would crave but worth a trip for those who haven't had it before.

Tim Hortons7771 Alderbridge Way, Richmond
This review goes for ALL Tim Hortons!
Submitted Tuesday, October 21, 2008 - 6:15am [Dine in]

The title is appropriate and it seems a waste of time for me to write seperate reviews for each location I've been to. They've all been terrible.

For a chain franchise I'm amazed how poorly TH is executed and run. Then again perhaps those two words used together is more of an oxymoron.

I've been to Tim Hortons all over the Lower Mainland and one in Alberta and the end result is always the same. Years ago you could still find a Tim Hortons that was nicely stocked with baked goods. Now you're lucky if you could find one that was skant on everything but the combo meals. I've been here at all times during the day (and night) and they must have a set time to release new batches of baked goods. When you can get them they are substandard in quality. Definitely not fresh. The only surprise now is that they still market their baked goods as such. Shame on them. Their sandwiches and soups are decent but they skimp on the sandwich fillings. If it weren't for their combos I'd rate their food as poor.

Service and management is beyond atrocity. The employees there seem to lack any training (many a times they look like they're having trouble punching in your order on their system), tables are rarely cleaned off by workers and the employees can barely handle the few customers that file in at 3am no less when it's the morning rush. Did I mention they're forgetful too? I can't remember the countless times I've had to wait for my order. Just about a week ago I had to wait about 20 minutes for my toasted bagel with cream cheese to arrive at a New Westminster location. I've yet to gone to a location where everything is acceptable. I spend more time waiting for my order than sitting in.

Tim Hortons is a joke. If it weren't open 24hrs I would have no reason to come here except to use their washrooms.
