Coza! Tuscan Grill20065 Langley Bypass, Langley
Higher quality Italian
Submitted Monday, March 17, 2008 - 3:17pm [Dine in]

Food: Delicious! I tried my friends' pasta dishes, cooked el-dente (sp?) and my own chicken dish was moist and juicy, nicely seared on the outside. What really impressed me was the small details added to each dish, like caper berries or plump black olives. These details are hard to find and I found out that some of their ingredients are imported from Italy. Also, best Tiramisu I've tried... EVER.

Service: attentive, friendly, and experienced even for a new establishment. I had to remind our server about my drink order, but given how busy it was, I can easily let that go... plus, she came back with not only my drink but a complimentary drink for my friend. I also saw that they gave away small slices of pizza to those waiting for a table... that seemed like a welcoming touch.

Coza's first impression on me was very, very good. Recommended.

Kingsway Sushi3665 Kingsway, #110, Vancouver
Good sashimi, reasonable prices, decent service
Submitted Tuesday, March 4, 2008 - 11:19pm [Dine in]

I had one of the best salmon sashimi here for the all-you-can-eat catagory. Other sashimi was fresh as well. While the regular ayce menu ($20) didn't have some "deluxe" menu ($6 bucks more) items that other ayce places feature, it's still a good enough selection and also offers some unique items such as the flame hawaiian sundae roll. The oyster motoyaki was very good as well. All in all, a solid experience.

Fatburger20125 64th Ave, Unit 101, Langley
Ok it's pricier, but I like their burgers!
Submitted Thursday, February 28, 2008 - 1:18am [Dine in]

Didn't know what to eat so decided to go to Fatburger. My bf and I ordered the special, where if you get a combo, you get a free burger... I added a milkshake and upgraded to onion rings and suddenly the total came to just under 20 bucks. Ok, so it's pricier than most burger joints. But the burger was well-made and had better quality ingredients. Service was good -- quick, made to order, friendly... no complaints.

I wouldn't go often but I would go back for sure.

This is so good!
Submitted Thursday, February 28, 2008 - 12:57am [Dine in]

There is nothing that compares to enjoying a good hotdog amidst the crowd, breathing in the cold night air. I finally tracked down the Japadog vendor after failing 3 times (I guess I arrived too late each time) ... and OMG was it ever good.

My bf and I shared the Terimayo dog and another one (forgot the name) with radishes. I preferred the Terimayo more but the radish one had its charm as well. The vendor was friendlier than most hotdog vendors. This is my new hotdog stand of choice!

Rare1355 Hornby Street, Vancouver
Great DOV experience
Submitted Sunday, February 3, 2008 - 1:43am [Dine in]

Mmmmm another great dine out experience. It was my first time trying RARE and will definitely come back. The rootbeer shortribs were fantastic! They fall off the bone, melt in your mouth, and were very flavourful! Appies and dessert delivered as well, all very inventive and fun.

I particularly liked the palette cleanser which came as a drink instead of the cliche sorbet. Very refreshing.

Service took a small hit only because there was a lack of communication and another server started filling our glasses of Pellegrino with water... they later apologized and replaced the Pellegrino of course -- no biggie. There was a lull between some courses, and they didn't serve the group I was with all at once for two courses (bringing 2 people their food, while the other 2 had to wait 5 min before their food showed up... kinda sucks when you're staring at the food but can't eat to be polite lol) But in general, the server was very knowledgable, friendly and professional.

This is the second best dine out restaurant I've tried! =)

Sip Resto Lounge1117 Granville Street, Vancouver
Nice presentation, decent food
Submitted Saturday, February 2, 2008 - 11:12am [Dine in]

Pretty place with pretty people, a standard for Vancouver of course =) Went here for Dine out and it turned out so-so. Not much to complain about (service was good, the food was good) but nothing really special to rave about either.

It was my first time here and I was surprised that I didn't really taste the alcohol in the food other than the cheesecake (had the crab cakes, beef/chicken duo, salmon main)

Would I go here on a non-dine out night? Maybe, just for the novelty of that fact that there's alcohol in all of the food... that's about it.

Great Dine Out experience
Submitted Thursday, January 24, 2008 - 11:39pm [Dine in]

One of the better dine out experiences so far. Food was awesome! I went with a group of friends so I had the pleasure of trying a bit of everything on the dine out menu as we all ordered different dishes. Everything was done very well but my favourites are: red salad, beef (well worth the upgrade of $15 more) and pomogranate soup for dessert. Salmon was also perfectly cooked.

Service was excellent and spot on. Bathrooms were lovely since it was part of the Four Seasons. Really, I can't think of a single negative about this place.

Will definitely visit again and again!

Tantra Lounge & Grill123 Carrie Cates Court, North Vancouver
Dine out experience
Submitted Sunday, January 20, 2008 - 1:22am [Dine in]

Checked out Tantra with some friends for Dine Out... it's hard to rate the food because while it was nicely prepared, there was just too little of it! I guess for $15 prix fix for 3 courses, what can you expect? =) But still... portions were very small, although at the end I was full enough to be satisfied (50% of my companions were not however...)

Ok, the food report:

APPIES: my mixed greens salad was just that - and without enough dressing so it was just greens (although beaufifully presented) / seafood chowder was reported as standard fare by my friends but the goat cheese was really good (and generously portioned)

MAINS: these were tapas sized but very tasty. I had the artic char on a bed of black rice... good flavors, inventive and the fish was cooked perfectly. The beef tenderloin my partner had was also cooked to perfection but the mashed potatos were so-so.

DESSERT: they didn't have the caramel chocolate bombe, but my lava cake was very rich and decandent. Nothing fancy but good enough. The cheesecake... tasted store bought.

Did I feel like I got value from this since it was dine out? Not really as the portions were very small and both the appie and dessert were negligable (I could put it together myself!) The only dish that stood out was the main courses so maybe I will visit again on a regular night if I was in the area.

Fish On Rice4361 Kingsway, #201, Burnaby
Sigh... another one off the list
Submitted Thursday, January 17, 2008 - 11:32pm [Dine in]

I wish I had better things to say because I used to go to Fish on Rice quite often. Each visit seemed worse and worse. If not the food quality (salad drowning in dressing or falling apart / poorly made rolls for example) the service has dwindled to the point where ... well, there was no service.

The last straw was walking in on a Sat. night (yes it was fairly busy) and being ignored for literally 5 min. before someone came just to say "be right back". He came back another 5 min. later and said the wait was 45 min. He didn't take down our names or anything, told us to "wait over there" and walked away. Boy, he sure makes his customers feel special.... even the no-frills restaurants will "pretend" to write your name down on the wait list.

For $20 a dinner, I can go pretty much anywhere. In fact, I'd even pay more just so I'm not here.

Will I go back? I'll check back and see if they can redeem themselves in a year (if they're still in business.)

LOL i love these sandwiches!
Submitted Saturday, January 12, 2008 - 2:19am [Dine in]

Big, and I mean BIG sandwiches.
As high as a pop can. Each sandwich has like a pound of meat in it and the bread is very fresh! For $6, you can have two very filling meals.

Also, the owner is hillarious! He does everything and anything so beware! Sense of humour is a must when going in here.

On Yuen Chinese Restaurant9014 152nd St., #304, Surrey
Superior and friendly service everytime
Submitted Monday, December 31, 2007 - 6:20pm [Dine in]

The most consistent Chinese dining in Surrey. I have gone to On Yuen since they opened many years ago and their service is still exactly the same as I remember til this day. It is a friendly, family - run joint and Eric, the owner usually calls his customers by name. His memory is quite amazing, not only remembering regulars' names, but also their kids' names and what sports they're enrolled in, etc.

Food is standard Chinese fare, not huge on details and plating but delivers solid quality everytime. Complimentary fruit and fortune cookies along with mango pudding are also served for dessert. A little extra like the mango pudding and the owner's sincerity really go a long way.

The restaurant also have some specialty dishes like crab, fish mau soup and peking duck. Although not the best place to have these, it's the one of the few places with it available in Surrey / Fraser Valley.

Lunch specials start at $5 so ... can't go wrong :D

Bubble World10090 152nd St, #137, Surrey
A good place to hang out late night
Submitted Wednesday, December 26, 2007 - 11:27pm [Dine in]

A good place to hang out in a town without many other choices late at night. Bubbleworld is always packed and lively. They don't have a lot of "real fruit" based drinks but the ones like kiwi and strawberry that they do have are really good. Drink portions for eat-in are huge so you're getting your money's worth.

Food isn't great. In fact, it's far from great, but their drink menu and being open til 2am makes up for it.

Recommended: Lychee bubble tea and the kiwi slush with bubbles

No. 9 Restaurant5300 No. 3 Road, #812, Richmond
open 24 - 7 and delivers every time
Submitted Wednesday, December 26, 2007 - 11:23pm [Dine in]

Ok... there are tons of wonton houses and cafes with much better food in Richmond... but can you name one that is open 24/7? That's the reason I keep going back to No.9 .... it's consistent food that's good (not great) but definitely good enough at 3am.

Service is fast and efficient without the frills as expected in this kind of restaurant. They have a huge menu and good dessert type drinks like red bean coolers and pinapple ice coolers.

No complaints here.

Chef And The Carpenter, The1745 Robson Street, Vancouver
negligable
Submitted Wednesday, December 26, 2007 - 11:16pm [Dine in]

Hmm... I'm going to have to disagree with most of the reviews here and say that my experience wasn't as good... we went as a group and while the waiter was nice some of the things he said seemed a bit condescending or made us do a double take at times.

Food-wise, we tried the table d'hote suggestions, me with the halibut and my partner with the chicken. The fish was a bit too salty and over cooked to my liking, my partner's chicken was... just chicken. The soup and salad starters we tried were acceptable but again nothing to wow at. Dessert was the best course of the meal -- hazelnut cake and creme caramel.

I heard good things about this place and was a bit disappointed. Another negligable restaurant trying to be high end in my books.

Yum!
Submitted Wednesday, December 26, 2007 - 11:08pm [Dine in]

First time I've tried Sukiyaki.... this is an all you can eat japanese hot pot style restaurant and I must say, while it was a bit fattier than what I expected, it's very very good.

Each hot pot comes with pork and beef plus a variety of different tofus and veggies. The soup base is provided along with water so it's adjustable to your tastes. Raw eggs are also given if you like to dip your cooked food in it... it was an interesting experience!

For ten bucks at lunch and 13 for dinner, you can't go wrong with this all you can eat joint which also has decent atmosphere. It is well ventilated and has a surprisingly young team running the show -- and they do a good job.

For beverages, try to "Green Sofa" its really refreshing!

Hanako Japanese Restaurant15135 101 Avenue, #205, Surrey
Freshest sashimi in Surrey
Submitted Wednesday, December 26, 2007 - 11:01pm [Dine in]

Wow. I keep passing by this place and finally decided to go in after my favorite sushi place declined in quality and quantity.

It's a very small place and packed for good reason. The sashimi was freshest I've had in a long time especially in Surrey. Sashimi quality is comparable to higher priced places like Kiyo in Richmond. My bf and I had the assorted sashimi, beef tataki, spider roll and hanako roll and all were fantastic.

Bonus: get in early and sit at the sushi bar -- watching the sushi chef is a treat on its own!

I'll definitely be back -- looks like I've found a new favourite for sure!

Milestone's Grill and Bar4420 Lougheed Hwy, Burnaby
very good key lime pie!
Submitted Tuesday, November 27, 2007 - 2:15pm [Dine in]

SERVICE: our server was timely, efficient and friendly.

FOOD: I've always loved Milestones for their brunch menu and this time I ordered the prime rib hash... it was very tastey (albeit a little greesy -- good for hangovers though!) My companions had the tiger prawns in red curry and the roast chicken (a good deal at $9.99) Both the other two dishes tasted good as well...Presentation overall was very good.

The keylime pie I had for desert was the best-presented key lime pie I've seen and it contained real zests of lime with coconut! yum!

VALUE: While milestone's is your run of the mill chain restaurant, I do feel that it's stepped up to become one of the better, more consistent restaurants. Prices aren't cheap and for the money I can easily spend at a dinner here, I'd rather go to a fine dining resturant... however, it's a relaxed atmosphere and if you're feeling like a casual night out with some good food and don't mind losing on the value a little bit, why not? =-)

Mongolie Grill19583 Fraser Highway, Surrey
Ok...update... better service this time around
Submitted Sunday, November 25, 2007 - 10:49pm [Dine in]

Alright, so I went back to Mongolie grill, craving something different and cheap. The food is the same (solid) but I just wanted to ammend my old post by saying that service has improved A LOT since my last visit. The server we had was friendly and even apologized when something was remotely delayed (we didn't feel like it was) The only caution I would throw out here is that our server seemed to be the only one who knew what was going on... I had an enjoyable experience but worry that next time I'll get someone less experienced.

Kirin Seafood Restaurant1163 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam
Good dim sum, service inconsistent
Submitted Sunday, November 25, 2007 - 10:41pm [Dine in]

I've been here a few times for dim sum and while the food is fairly decent service has been inconsistent. They were the best dim sum service I've ever experienced when it was a slower day, changing plates, offering hot towels, and being generally "on"...

today was a different story as they had a full house and forgot 3 of the 11 dishes we ordered. After prompting them twice to check on these lagging dishes, we were told the kitchen never received the order. We also had to flag down the waiter twice to order and another three times to get a chopstick changed (it fell on the floor). No plates were changed, no hot towels. Service was brisk and unwelcoming.

I'll have to go again (yes the food and close location is pulling me back) to see if they can redeem themselves.

The plus about the coquitlam Kirin is the wait time is significantly shorter (30 min max without reservations on weekends) than other comparable dim sum places in richmond or vancouver due to its location.

Also, to the post below: I've found that Chinese restaurants in general are not usually romantic places (no matter how "fine dining" it is) to take your date because the Chinese culture in general IS loud and family-oriented. Restaurant lights must be bright so we can see what we're eating and up until the mid 90's I'd say service and atmosphere was never a priority (it's always been about the food and usually still is).

Anducci's10194 152 Street, Surrey
Too worldly to be Italian
Submitted Saturday, November 17, 2007 - 1:52am [Dine in]

Went to Anducci's tonight for a late dinner...The service hasn't improved much from my last few visits several months ago. The servers seem nicer but still not very knowledgable and are slow. The waitress couldn't tell me the name of the mineral water they had to replace the San Pellegrino I ordered; we waited for our table when clearly there was one available (ironically we could see it from our waiting area) we waited another 15 min. until we were taken to that SAME table that sat empty and clean all that time LOL.

Food wise, I was disappointed to see even more Italian dishes taken off the menu. I didn't see any zuppa or calamari in red sauce (tapas) anymore, but they did replace these items with food with japanese, chinese and american influence. Why would I go to an Italian place for deep fried calamari I can get everywhere else? Or wok-fried items or japanese miso sauce?
