India Gate616 Robson St, Vancouver
Unfortunate
Submitted Saturday, February 14, 2009 - 3:54pm [Dine in]

I went to India Gate for the first time two weeks ago. I ordered Shahi Paneer, which was advertised as chunks of cheese cooked in a rich gravy. What I got looked like blenderized tofu, no gravy, and no taste. I was completely disappointed. My companions ordered chicken, and told me that their food was bland and over-cooked.

The washroom was like going outside. The bathroom, painted canary yellow, has a door in the men's stall that only covers the small room from top to about 3 feet off the ground: just enough so that you can't see out, but just enough so that if someone walks into the washroom they have a complete view of you. The water was freezing.

The service was poor. The waiter looked like he wasn't even awake.

Food rating: 1. If there were a zero, I'd use it.
Service rating: 1. Again, so poor it's not worth discussing.
Value rating: 1. I was charged 15 dollars (before tax and tip) for a plate of over-cooked rice, frozen peas and blenderized something-or-other. Not worth it at any price, but certainly not for the price I paid.
Ambiance rating: 1, though could be a 2 if they were a little cleaner.

Basically, India Gate is a greasy spoon but the food isn't good enough to call it that. I won't be going back.

Indian Fusion2045 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
Great Experience, Great Food!
Submitted Saturday, August 2, 2008 - 9:39pm [Dine in]

I have eaten at Indian Fusion several times now, and I have not been disappointed yet. The drinks are great (and priced well), the appetizers are delicious (and there's lots), and the entrees are all excellent. I haven't tried the pizza (as another poster mentioned) but, it's an Indian restaurant! I mean, you wouldn't go to an Italian restaurant for chutney, you know?

I'm always greeted in a professional, friendly manner; the servers are great, the owners are great. Really, I can't find a single thing wrong with this restaurant. And the food--really tasty and authentically made is always inexpensive.

There are some places where people are just polite to you because you spend money there, this is probably one of the few places where the owners actually talk to you, ask you how you're doing...it's a great place. They also changed ownership a while back.

No complaints at all! Just a great restaurant with good service and great music. I'll be back as often as I can.

Stepho's Greek Taverna1124 Davie St, Vancouver
Greek? Come on!
Submitted Thursday, March 20, 2008 - 3:13pm [Dine in]

Listen, I'm Greek. Many, many generations of Greek in me and when I went to this place I didn't see any of my ancestors at this restaurant.

The lamb was all sinew and gristle. The lasagna contained the ends of carrotts (the root end). I went with four employees from my firm and we all didn't want to finish our meals. The price was great, but you get a lot of big, wet rice for the price. If the meal contained actual content I'd say "well, at least you're getting good sized portions" but you don't. You get over-cooked rice, piled high with cheap cuts of meat thrown on top.

I don't know why people line up for this place, unless they're really on a budget and want the experience of "dining out" but for my money I'd prefer a place like Characters where at least you get food. Stepho's is not worth the price.

Colosseum Pizza and Steak107 East 12th Street, North Vancouver
Nice decor but....
Submitted Thursday, March 20, 2008 - 3:00pm [Dine in]

When I visited the Colosseum, I wasn't expecting too much. The outside is in a strip mall, and does little to inspire. The inside was actually quite cozy, and I liked the decor. It really reminded me of a Roman bistro.

The problem was the price. It was too expensive for what was being offered. The pizza was ok; I don't think the pizza dough itself was anything spectacular, but I'll give them an A for effort. I agree with the poster who said that the place looked run down. Further inspection showed that it really was. The subdued lighting made it look very cozy but frankly it was a little unkept.

New India Buffet & Restaurant805 W Broadway, #105, Vancouver
Nice view bad food
Submitted Thursday, March 20, 2008 - 2:55pm [Dine in]

I don't expect much from buffets, but there was a time when this restaurant offered a few interesting dishes. Sadly, those days have passed.

I went to the New India Buffet on Monday, March 19, 2008. I went in for lunch. Other than rice, I had yogurt curry, poneer and cauliflower. The cauliflower was very greesy. The poneer was more broth than cheese, and the yogurt curry, while tasty, didn't contain anything of substance. The pakora was quite dry, as if they had been made the day before and re-heated.

I honestly didn't want to complete the meal but for the 11.50 I was about to spend, I forced myself to eat it. I had a stomach ache almost immediately after. When I went to pay, the owner (presumably the owner) was on the phone, and did a fair job of ignoring me. After about 10 minutes of waiting I left and came back sometime later to pay. Thinking back now, I should have just left and not come back. He didn't seem too interested.

It's unfortunate that I feel the need to write this review because I used to enjoy going here but the past few times have been just gruesome. No one asks you if you want drinks. No one buses the tables. The items in the buffet are half Indian half Chinese and really, even those items aren't very good. I think for the price I would rather go a little further out into Richmond or even Main Street and find some good Indian fare.

Antonino Bakery1535 6th Avenue West, Vancouver
Shoddy service and product
Submitted Thursday, March 20, 2008 - 2:38pm [Dine in]

I have only been to this cafe four times, and each of those four times was an utter disappointment. Because it is the only "Italian" cafe in the area, I had hoped, somewhat erroneously that service might "pick up." Even Italians in the community won't go here, and now I know why.

The food is not Italian. I don't care if the owner, a throughly unpleasant woman thinks her recipes come straight from God: each sweet is clearly based on the same dough recipe as all the others. There is no difference in taste. The breads are hard and unpalatable. The coffee is unremarkable.

I wasn't thrilled about the service or the lack of atmosphere, and I too remember when this "cafe" was on 4th. They didn't have customers then, and they don't have customers now. It's a shame that this is all we have in Kitsilano.

Neighbourhood Noodle House1352 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
Won't be back
Submitted Wednesday, August 29, 2007 - 9:34pm [Dine in]

I have been to this place a few times, but the service is never really that good. Once I waited in the back for 15 minutes because no one saw me. The older waitresses are nice, and there is a very nice kid who waits on the tables, and the owner (I think he's the owner) is very pleasant. Unfortunately the last time I was there, one of the servers refused to serve my friend and me. I guess she didn't think we could understand her (because we're not Asian) but she told another waitress "you go wait on them. I don't like all their yakking all the time." My friend teaches Asian languages so we knew EXACTLY what she was saying. When she did come to the table to serve food, she literally dropped the dishes on the table and walked away. Very, very rude and totally inconsiderate. Didn't even say "sorry about that."

The food is OK and like I said, the service really isn't that great, but this young Japanese-looking waitress has a real attitude problem and I won't spend my money in a place where I am treated this way. I'm not just another Gwailo, I'm a wealthy and friendly Gwailo who can spend his money ANYWHERE. I chose this place because it's close to a friend's house but I could just as easily go to Chinatown for a proper meal.

If I were the owner, I would lose her in a hurry, but with the attitude that we saw coming off of her, I suspect that she's a permanent fixture. Too bad, she's a real byotch and she isn't doing the owner any favors by being there.
