Maria's Taverna1037 Denman Street, Vancouver
Try the avgolemono soup!
Submitted Thursday, January 24, 2008 - 12:23pm [Dine in]

Maria's on Denman Street does not look great from the outside...another large stereotype Greek restaurant with bright colours and loud Greek music. We decided to have a quick meal there this week and was surprised that the DOV menu for $15 was available to all patrons. Well, the avgolemono soup was the best I have ever tasted, a blend of chicken, egg and lemon with a perfect texture. The other appetizers were tzatziki or homous with pita. The main courses were either chicken or prawn souvlaki or spanakopita with the usual greek salad, rice and roast potatoes. Good portions but not very exciting. The Baclava for dessert was not made on the premises but it was fresh and a good way to end the meal. The DOV 3 course price was great value but I doubt if I would return for the regular menu prices except I would pay anything for another bowl of that soup!

Keg Steakhouse & Bar, The15180 32nd Avenue, Surrey
Pricy Prime Rib
Submitted Monday, January 21, 2008 - 7:40pm [Dine in]

A birthday celebration at the Keg is always reliably good but the price of prime rib keeps going up...$21.95 for a regular cut with baked potato or fries or salad is getting up there, not quite Mortons or Gothams but quite expensive. The prime rib was perfectly cooked but the onion ring garnish should have stayed in the kitchen...very oily and tasteless. We tried two appetizers (mushroom caps and calamari) and both were tasty and well presented. The chocolate dessert platter to share at $10.95 was the highlight of the meal! The restaurant has been beautifully designed as it was a pleasure dining without the distraction of countless televisions. Certainly a notch above Earls and Milestones. Our server was attentive and my only complaint was his over-eagerness to take away plates from our party once someone had finished their main course rather than wait until everyone had finished eating. First thing you learn at server school!

Watermark1305 Arbutus St., Vancouver
Super lunch!
Submitted Saturday, January 19, 2008 - 1:01pm [Dine in]

Looking out at Kits Beach even on a windy, rainy day can be a delight at the Watermark. Been there many times but just love some of the appetizers...they don't mind you sharing and the innovative menu always has something different. The best is the signature rock salt chili prawns ($9.95), crisp and spicy with a sweet and sour dip. Not far behind are the prawn spring rolls ($9.95) made with mushrooms and water chestnuts with a wasabi yogurt dipping sauce. We also tried the black n' blue albacore tuna salad ($14.95) that was fresh and tasty. The open kitchen lets you feel [part of the action. This place gets better and better.

TVs everywhere
Submitted Friday, January 18, 2008 - 6:34pm [Dine in]

The DOV menu for $25 was extremely good value. Four of us shared the Yam fries (huge portion), baked brie with french bread and crab cakes. All were tasty. The mains were not quite as good, the chicken breast with mediterranean stuffing was ordinary and the rare sesame crusted ahi tuna was spoilt by a thick terriyaki sauce. The desserts were better, a light chocolate mouse or mango cheesecake that was smooth and satisfying. The portions were much better than some DOV menus that are like sampling menus. We went before the theatre and they let us return after the show to eat our desserts as we were running late. The waitress even gave us a complimentary coffee/tea which was a nice touch. My only real criticism is why the heck can't you have a meal out these days without the distraction of TVs on every corner. If I want to watch sports I'll go to a sports bar!

Won More Szechuan Cuisine1184 Denman, #201, Vancouver
Please open for lunch
Submitted Wednesday, January 16, 2008 - 12:18pm [Dine in]

In the West End there is a high turnover of restaurants yet Won More has survived for years. Hidden away on the second floor on the corner of Denman and Davie it serves good reliable Szechuan food at reasonable prices, considering the location. On my latest visit we shared the Eggplant and Tofu Hotpot ($9.95)and the Prawns with seasonal vegetables($12.95). Both were excellent. The restaurant is small and the tables are close to one another but the quality of the food makes it worthwhile. I just wish they would open for lunch as I am sure word of mouth would get the locals in there.

Tsolias Taverna2217 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
Reliable Greek Food!
Submitted Saturday, January 5, 2008 - 6:48pm [Dine in]

Went to a 50th birthday party with about 30 other people and we half filled the restaurant which was good for them as there were only a few other diners. Nothing spectacular about the food, the calamari was on the soggy side and the roast lamb could have had more flavour but the souflakis seemed good and the pita and dips were tasty. Service was friendly but the best thing about the meal was the belly dancer and she was only there because of the birthday party!

Disappointing
Submitted Wednesday, December 19, 2007 - 10:23am [Dine in]

There is a large young Korean population in the West End and this restaurant obviously caters to them with loud music. Service was sporadic...seat yourself and wait for the lukewarm tea to arrive. The menu was varied with the usual Korean fare...I tried the small miniature crab and for S16.95 it was a let-down, they give you large kitchen scissors to cut the shell but you could break the shell with your fingers and there was little crab to be found. The BBQ dishes ($12.95) were a better choice but I expected an overall better experience.

Fresh Sushi
Submitted Friday, December 14, 2007 - 9:13pm [Dine in]

For an All You Can Eat this place has got better over the years....or is it that others have gone downhill? The lunch at $10.95 was good value, they brought us everything we ordered and it was fresh, good quality sushi. We had a baby with us and they were quite accomodating, no sneers like at some restaurants. The dinner AYCE is $17.95 with a greater selection so will try that one day.

Dried up rice
Submitted Tuesday, December 11, 2007 - 3:36pm [Dine in]

Been here about five times and this was the worst. Very busy at lunchtime but that's no excuse for lousy service. We were only given a table after asking three times to be seated and there were many empty tables. The spring rolls appetizer came after the main courses. We had the sambal green beans, chicken satay and prawns which were all OK except the accompanying rice was barely warm and very dry...could have been cooked a few days ago for all we know. The servers had to be reminded several times to bring items that we ordered. Will think twice about going here again.

East is East4413 Main St, Vancouver
Something different
Submitted Monday, December 3, 2007 - 2:59pm [Dine in]

On the way to the movies we stopped off at East is East as I had heard many positive reviews. The staff were friendly and accommodating when we told them we had to eat fairly quickly. The live sitar music finished at 7.00PM which seemed strange as the restaurant was filling up. It is small, no real tables (eating on one's lap or off a coffee table is not everyone's idea of a night out), no liquor licence and no washroom. On the positive side the food was appetizing, nicely presented and varied, the dinner plates ($15) had complimentary refills if you were still hungry and the chai teas excellent. Definately a different dining experience and one to remember!

Desi Lounge & Restaurant911 Denman St, #200, Vancouver
Good small buffet
Submitted Friday, November 2, 2007 - 10:02pm [Dine in]

Size is not everything and the luncheon buffet at the Desi on Denman ($9.95) was a welcome change to the Japanese and Korean restaurants that have taken over the West End. Four of us were seated in a comfortable booth and thoroughly enjoyed the meal, The buffet was small, maybe 10 items, but the food was tasty and replenished often. One of the managers even brought a plate of spicy chicken legs fresh out of the kitchen to our table. The ceasar salad did not really go with the buffet but I am sure some people appreciate it.The decor was colourful and there was a Bollywood music video playing in the background. I hope they survive as being on the second floor does not give street presence but if you like Indian food this place is worth a visit. The service was friendly and the smiles were genuine.....that's not easy to find these days.

Try a Weekend Breakfast!
Submitted Monday, October 29, 2007 - 12:13pm [Dine in]

I have had lunch at this restaurant several times and while not outstanding the food has always been well presented and appetizing. Last Sunday seven of us met at the restaurant for breakfast and although not all of us ate a cooked meal the staff were accomodating and the service friendly. I had the Eggs Benny with spinach ($10) that was surprisingly goods, the poached eggs were perfectly cooked and the sauce not too rich. The pan fried potatoes were hot and tasty. The coffee kept coming and the staff did not rush us through the meal. Not bad at all!

New India Buffet & Restaurant805 W Broadway, #105, Vancouver
Could be better
Submitted Friday, October 26, 2007 - 11:45am [Dine in]

Five of us went to the New India Buffet for lunch and found ourselves a nice table with a view....this place is larger than you think but the meal was somewhat disappointing. The problem with buffets is the food sits in a steam table and either becomes lukewarm because it is there too long or it takes too much time to go down the line and get back to your table. There is a good variety at this buffet but most of the food was mediocre......I would prefer higher quality with fewer items. The Chai tea had a nice flavour and there was a good selection of chutneys. There was no service to speak of, you helped yourself to tea/water and cleaned your own table. All this place needs is a good manager to sort out the problems and it would do a whole lot better.

George's Taverna3760 Moncton Street, #130, Richmond
Greek dining in Steveston
Submitted Wednesday, October 17, 2007 - 10:19am [Dine in]

I have been to George's before and love the roast lamb special which at $14.95 is the most expensive item on the menu but well worth it. There is enough lamb for two meals and it melts in your mouth! My only complaint would be the heavily salted potatoes......I wish chefs would allow patrons to salt their own food as so many people are not into salt these days. Our table also had the chicken ceasar ($8.95)and lamb souvlaki (12.95)which were declared favourable.
The meal took over half an hour to arrive but our server brought us complimentary pitas and humous as the kitchen was so slow. I personally don't mind waiting if the food is freshly prepared and tasty and George's passes that test quite well.

Good Hungarian food
Submitted Sunday, October 7, 2007 - 12:49am [Dine in]

It is advisable to make a reservation as this restaurant is small (28 seats) and we had to wait half an hour for a table. The wait was worth it as the food was excellent, we had the platter for two($31.95) of schnitzels, home-made sausages, very tasty cabbage rolls, potatoes, veggies etc. The red cabbage with cooked apples was perfect. There was enough to take home for another meal. A good variety of desserts priced at $3-$4. I am sure they would do well in larger premises as the quality of the food is so high, we will be back to try the goulash!

Mr. Pickwick's Fish & Chips1007 Denman Street, Vancouver
Better than Bud's
Submitted Tuesday, August 28, 2007 - 11:25pm [Dine in]

I always thought that Bud's Fish and Chips was overated with soggy fish and fries. When it closed and Mr Pickwicks took over the location I never gave it a thought until last weekend. I was pleasantly surprised. I had the tandoori spiced fish and chips ($10), the Saturday night special, and it was very tasty, 2 crispy fillets with a reasonable portion of fries and salad. My friends also had good halibut cakes and fried fish. Draft beer choices were limited but the best thing was you left without that oily taste in your mouth that you get with many fish and chip places these days. Will be back.

Kingyo871 Denman Street, Vancouver
Good Experience
Submitted Tuesday, August 28, 2007 - 3:27pm [Dine in]

The hype about Kingyo is true, the place does have energy and the service something you dream about these days. Very attentive, friendly servers and the food well presented and tasty. The crab cake was a bit insipid but the tempura prawns and spring rolls more than made up for that and the Tiger beer went well with all the dishes. I loved the creative ambience and the way couples could sit up on stools facing others from a comfortable distance. This place will definately last on Denman Street!

You won't need chopsticks
Submitted Thursday, August 2, 2007 - 11:45pm [Dine in]

Yes, the sushi pieces are extremely large and for some pieces you will need a knife and fork. The quality, however, is good and the line-ups = mucho business = fresh sushi. Prices are extremely reasonable. So, for all you people complaining about the size of the sushi, I have one question, why do you keep going back?

They get away with it
Submitted Sunday, July 22, 2007 - 11:23pm [Dine in]

Went to Robson Sushi a couple of days ago for lunch and I can relate to other reviewers; terrible service, my server was talking to another server while writiing down my order, no wonder she missed a couple of items. Food was OK and that's about it. Its a shame because there are about 6 new Korean and Japanese restaurants nearby and sooner or later this one will close and the owner will regret hiring anyone who walks through the door and thinking just because he's on Robson St he'll survive.

Shore Club, The688 Dunsmuir Street, Vancouver
Very expensive
Submitted Friday, July 20, 2007 - 5:04pm [Dine in]

I was lucky enough to be taken out to dinner by some out of town friends. I had never heard of the Shore Club, (sister to another steakhouse, Gothams) ,a very opulent new restaurant with high ceilings, a beautiful bar and open kitchen that reminded me of the TV show, "Hell's Kitchen". Well, they needed Gordon Ramsay to shake them all up, the waiters in their white jackets that didn't fit were trying hard but seemed to be running round in circles. The food was disgraceful for the cost...for an appetizer one soggy crab cake with a slice of tomato was $18, calamari $15 and it went from bad to worse. All the entrees were disappointing, my salmon wellington at $27 was OK but looked lonely. All sides are priced extra, shoestring potaotes were $7, and veggies up to $11, House rice was $15!! My friends had a filet mignon for $42 that looked burnt, and a salmon fillet ($30) that was declared good. However, at these prices you expect an exceptional dinner and this certainly wasn't. I found the restaurant noisy especially if seated by the kitchen. It all cost over $8 million and that's why they charge $18 for a crabcake!
