Zeitoon1615 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
High Quality Persian Food
Submitted Saturday, January 14, 2012 - 6:45pm [Dine in]

Went there with three others for dinner after reading nothing but good reviews on other websites. The praise was well deserved. We started with a hommus dish, which was totally authentic and exquisite in both presentation and taste. Two of us had shishlick lamb kebabs which were juicy and tasted like lamb should. One had the tenderloin AAA beef kebabs which were tender, succelent and of the highest quality. The kebabs were served with saffron basmati rice which was aromatic and delicate to the taste. One of us had the lamp shank. The meat was so tender it fell off the bone and it was marinated with a house sauce that added to the exotic flavour. It was served with basmatic rice mixed with dill weed and lima beans. In a nutshell, relatively simple dishes (like most Persian fare) but presented beautifully and most importantly, which tasted wonderful. All four have vowed to return ASAP. My wife and I will not wait until then and will return first with other friends we plan to introduce this new gem of a restaurant to.

2S Green Asian Cuisine1195 Marine Drive, North Vancouver
Great New Asian Restaurant
Submitted Monday, July 18, 2011 - 9:10am [Dine in]

There's a great new eaterie in the hood. The 2S Green asian restaurant is conveniently located on Marine Drive at the junction with Pemberton Avenue, with off-street parking at its front door. It is difficult choosing from the menu because it is such a good one. It includes all major Southeast Asian cuisines - Thai, Malay, Singaporean, Vietnamese and Chinese. Normally, I am sceptical about restaurants that do a range of cuisines but this one proved a winner in each 'department'. The server was an exceptionally pleasant and helpful lady. There were four of us and we ordered four dishes for sharing. We went with two of the server's recommendations - Thai Shredded Fish with Samba Sauce & Viet Lemon Grass Chicken Chop. To these we added Rendang Beef Curry and Eggplant with Basil Leaves. All four dishes were excellent with tinges of lemongrass, aniseed, chilli, etc. to give each a distinctive taste. We were given a free dessert comprising bits of banana and apple in a cold tapioca cocount juice which was tasty and refeshing - a perfect way to end the meal. This is part of the restaurant's Grand Opening promotion which includes a 10% discount on all food items which lasts until the end of August. The menu has almost 100 food items including all the popular Asian dishes such as Thai curries, Singapore noodles, Malay laksa and a host of Chinese favourites such as lemon chicken, BBQ pork, Kung Pow shrimp, ginger beef, etc. I shall definitely return to try all these other dishes. My friends and I have already made a date to return next week.

Persepolis Restaurant & Lounge112 13th Street, North Vancouver
A very pleasant experience
Submitted Thursday, June 16, 2011 - 2:39pm [Dine in]

I visited the restaurant for the first time with my wife and friends. We were immediately greeted with great warmth and friendliness. Our server, Katie, was very professional and proceeded to explain all the dishes on the menu. I normally make my own choices but in this case, we all went with her recommendations. We started with a sampler of two eggplant and two yoghurt dips served with pieces of pita bread. They were absolutely delicious and were more than adequate as an appetizer for four people. We then had a pair of sampler entrees for two people comprising three kebabs - chicken, beef and ground beef - served with saffron basmati rice, a salad and a choice of one of the two yoghurt dips for dressing. The sticks had been removed from the kebabs, making them easy to cut and share. The chicken was soft, moist and succelent with the obvious taste one gets from barbecued meat. The beef kebab came in strips and melted in one's mouth. The ground beef kebab had an exotic taste associated with eastern herbs. The rice was a perfect pairing for the meat. I am not a fan of salad but enjoyed the one I was given. We each had a glass of bubbly which rounded off a perfect meal. It was our first time and we shall return.

Noodle Makers935 Marine Drive, North Vancouver
Authentic Cantonese Food
Submitted Monday, June 8, 2009 - 12:35pm [Dine in]

This is one of the North Shore's best kept secrets in spite of its prominent location. I have been there three times and was generally impressed by the food, service and ambiance. I used to live in Hong Kong and know what Cantonese food should taste like. The food at the Noodle Makers comes close to what I am used to and is miles ahead of many other Chinese restaurants I have been to in Vancouver. Unfortunately, many of the reviews I have read are based on a comparison with Canadian Chinese food rather then the Real McCoy. The first time I went for lunch. The dim sum was fresh and the noodles were good, although I like mine with a much stronger flavour of garlic and soy sauce. The second time was for dinner and we had "standard" dishes such as Sweet & Sour Pork, Stir-fried Beef with Black Bean Sauce and Spicy Fried Beans. There were four of us - all ex-Hong Kong residents - and the thumbs-up was unanimous. The third time was for dinner and we had more "standard" dishes. The Squid with Salt & Chilli was to die for. It was one of the best I've ever had and I have eaten this dish hundreds of times in almost as many restaurants. The service was extremely friendly each time. The decor is simple but pleasant and it is nice having the view through the tall glass windows. I will continue to visit this restaurant and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Szechuan Fusion3rd Street East, 127, North Vancouver
Wow!
Submitted Sunday, June 7, 2009 - 6:46pm [Dine in]

I learnt about this restaurant through a newspaper ad. I love Szechuan food and was also attracted by the grand opening special offer of 20% off for dine-in meals. The manager was friendly and helpful from the minute the four of us arrived until we left. He suggested four signature dishes - Boiled Beef with Chilli, Diced Chicken with Peanuts, Minced Park with Garlic & Chilli Sauce and Fried Green Beans - and this is what we had. He asked whether we liked our food spicy and we said yes. The dishes were swimming in chilli sauce or covered with chillis and were very spicy, the way we like it, and full of flavour. The least spicy dish was the green beans which had more garlic than chillis but was lovely and a welcome contrast to the other dishes. In a nutshell, this was the most authentic Szechuan food we have had in Vancouver. The bill came to only $47 for all those dishes plus rice and tea including tax, after the promotional 20% discount. Spicy dishes can be toned down on request and there are other dishes on the menu that are not spicy.

We will definitely be back soon to try other classic Szechuan dishes such as Hot and Sour Soup, Spicy Wonton, Spicy Shrimps Szechuan, Orange Peel Beef and Fried Eggplant with Garlic & Chilli Sauce.
