Let me first say it here, I have been a Balkan House Restaurant customer for over 10 years. I am a Chinese and this is the place I go to eat Eastern European food. In all my visits there I haven't seen many Chinese around in fact I could use both of my hands to count how many I have seen eating there. I don't know what most people are talking about in the restaurant and I am not particularly fond of the live music there either.
But this has been the place all 3 generations of family members have been to for East European food. We liked the Schnitzel all along. Veal Schnitzel is not on the menu but if you ask (like I do everytime) you will be able to get it and it never disappoints. The bread is fresh and warm too.
I must say the service was Mediocre - there's definitely room for improvement. The gentleman I used to see everytime was pretty good (I haven't seen him lately though). He did recommend me to try the ethnic desert, which's quite refreshing.

Well our whole family (3 generations) went there together yesterday night, after a 12 years hiatus. Nothing's changed. I mean absolutely nothing. We went there mostly for nostalgic reasons, but first thing I noticed is the good friendly service the waitress gave. Our group of 6 people had Top Sirloin, Roast Turkey and Roast Beef dinners. Don't expect a steak like The Keg but for the price we are paying (6.95 Roast Beef Dinner - on special, 8.95 Roast Turkey Dinner, 10.95 Top Sirloin Dinner) the food was rock solid. Some had the turkey vegetable soup and some had salad. It's best to avoid the wines though, my dad ordered half liter red and half liter white wine, but they don't taste good. The value is good compare to what you are paying. I mean where else can I find a 3.95 breakfast in Vancouver anymore?
