Food okay but not great value
Submitted Monday, April 12, 2010 - 11:03am [Dine in]

We stopped by here on Sunday for lunch. It was not extremely busy so we were told to seat ourselves (which I actually prefer). We seated ourselves and waited for a while for menus to be brought to us. We were told that there was no kids menu which is fine but they said they had appies and sides that were kid friendly. I ordered a burger with yam fries and coleslaw. The burger was decent and the coleslaw was good. The yam fries were also good but a little spicy and my daughter had one and had to drink a lot to cool the burn off. My wife had teriyaki burger with "poutine" and a "mango" pasta salad. The poutine was a coagulated pile of french fries, cheese (probably Monterey Jack) and gravy. Poutine has to be made with fresh curds to get the right consistency otherwise, it's just a mess. For the pasta salad, we did uncover a few tidbits of mango but not enough to even taste it. Again, they added chilil pepper spice to the pasta salad so my daughter couldn't eat that either.

The service was okay. The staff was courteous and somewhat attentive. Our table needed to be cleaned again though because it had some sticky sauce still on it from the previous diners. My wife ordered a tea and the mug had coffee drips still on the outside of the mug so we had to ask for a new mug (which was a little cleaner but not by much). The table beside us had to ask for a new side plate because it was dirty. I didn't think a place that we only a few months old would be running into dishwasher problems already.

The atmosphere was nice and clean. The only problem my wife had was when she went to use the washroom, the stall was so dimly lit, she could barely see. Maybe they just had a burned out potlight but you would think they would check on things like that.

All in all, the food was okay but definitely not a place for families. Which is odd that they chose Steveston to open up because this area has primarily residents with young families. I will probably go back to try their wings at some point but with a couple of buddies instead of the family.

If you want a place for a few pints, some appies and watch a game then this is a good place for you.

Excellent fish & Indian cuisine
Submitted Monday, November 5, 2007 - 12:40pm [Dine in]

I've been to their restaurant several times and never been disappointed. Typically, the fries rank very high in terms of homemade quality. There was one time the french fries weren't up to par but still better than most places. I usually have the traditional fare of halibut and fries but I asked for the fish to be lightly battered (all depends how you like it). My wife usually has the grilled halibut which is also excellent. The coleslaw is also very tasty.

We've sampled the Indian cuisine on a couple occassions. The butter chicken is very good. I find at a lot of Indian restaurants, the butter chicken is way too rich and heavy but not here. We've also tried the lamb curry which was very good, not too gamey. The naan bread is a great side dish and seems to be always made fresh per order. The real winner is the mango pudding. I've had mango pudding from different places in Vancouver and around the world and this is the best I've tried.

The service can sometimes appear a little abrupt when things are busy but is usually friendly and accommodating
