Sen Viet Restaurant8590-200th Street, #10, Langley
Wooohooo for decent vegetarian food!!
Submitted Sunday, March 10, 2013 - 8:46pm [Dine in]

As a vegetarian, it's so hard to find normal food that is made for vegetarian. For example, when I go out with friends for Pho I usually get the regular noodle soup with only noodles because it's usually the only thing I can eat.

Sen Viet is one of the few places I've been to that makes Pho for vegetarians, and it tastes pretty damn good. I tastes good, and I don't feel crappy after eating it. Price is a little higher than the usual Pho restaurants, but it's hard to find one that uses quality ingredients like Sen Viet does. Will definitely come back to try the other vegetarian dishes they have!!

Submitted Wednesday, February 13, 2013 - 7:05pm [Dine in]

I've been here a few times and love it, to the point that I crave the food.

I MAY be a bit biased, as I crave the same menu item so much that I always order the same item everytime, since I live in Langley and don't come out often.

Service, as people complain, is like service at any Chinese restaurant. Lately it hasn't been too bad, although I've come when it hasn't been that busy.

I usually order the soup with the handmade fish noodles. LOVE handmade noodles. And the turnip pudding (pan fried turnip cakes), I love it at dimsum and these are one of my fav.

Another issue is that I don't eat meat so I'm limited with what I can eat I am able to meat, but I'm stuck on the food I order.

Bubble Inn8790 204 Street, #2, Langley
Ownership change?
Submitted Monday, January 21, 2013 - 2:25pm [Take-out]

I'm surprised this place is still open, since it's always dead whenever I visit. But it's the only bubbletea place in Langley that's open late, so when I'm desperate for a fix I come here.

I haven't been here in 6 months and I think it might have changed owners, because the menu looks different and I don't recognize the people working.

When I got there there were a couple people who had already ordered. So waiting a couple minutes wasn't too bad, but waiting 5-7 watching her make drinks without being acknowledged was a little rude. Finally she took my ordered and screwed it up, gave me pearls instead of coconut jelly, but I just wanted to leave. No biggie, but when I tasted my drinks (almond milk tea hot and green apple green tea cold), they were all so sweet that I needed to add water to dilute them. I even when I diluted the green apple, I could still taste the powdery residue.

Was pretty disappointed, kind of killed my craving for bbt since it was made poorly.

Peaceful Restaurant532 West Broadway, Vancouver
Tried it out after seeing it on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives
Submitted Monday, January 21, 2013 - 2:00pm [Dine in]

We were really stoked to visit this place cuz it was featured on DDD's and I love when noodles are handmade. We got there around 4:15 so only waited 10 minutes before getting seated, but by the time we left (5:15) there were people waiting at the door.

Place is too small, hard to get around. It was hard getting the server's attention to order, which was frustrating cuz we would see them pass us but never pay attention to us.

Food is ok. We started with the beef wrap, which had alot of flavour but small portion for the price, and a little greasy. But taste was pretty good.

Then we had the thousand chilli chicken cuz it looked popular, but definitely not enough chicken pieces for the price. Taste was pretty good, lots of seasoning and flavours.

We ordered vegetarian potstickers, but I wouldn't recommend it cuz even though the wrapper is handmade, it didn't taste any different than a potsticker anywhere else. I actually like Hons potstickers better.

Our noodle dish was vegetarian as well, it was okay. The noodles were firmer than I would have expected.

All in all, we found the decor lacking, they could use another server or atleast a busser/runner to improve service, and small portion for price. Would go back again if we could figure out what are the really good dishes so we're not wasting our money.

Submitted Monday, February 6, 2012 - 1:48pm [Dine in]

This is the second time i've been here and after this time I definitely had to comment.

Went here with my family (5 adults 1 child) because I had a $20 coupon. At the front, it says to mention the coupon before ordering, as some items (dimsum, etc) can not be combined with coupon. The set menu for 4 seemed like a good deal so we ordered that, but I asked our waitress if we could use the coupon for the set menu. She took our order and left. After 5 minutes, she comes back and returns our coupon, saying that we cannot use it. We say that we will order something else then, and look at the menu.

There must have been a language barrier because she leaves, and it takes us another 5 minutes to flag her down. We tell her that we want to cancel and order off the menu, cuz we then we can order exactly what we want. She's like "uh oh!" and checks with the kitchen. She comes back after a couple of minutes and says "the order is already being made, sorry!" and we're like "wtf!". Cuz we specifically asked her if we could use the coupon prior to ordering, and she should have made sure we could use it before she put the order in.

We decided not to cause anymore issues, although I was a little pissed. The food came a few minutes later, all dishes at the same time. Thai food is my favourite type of food, but there was nothing to distinguish it or make it something I'd order again.

While we were still eating, they tried to push dessert on us and we said "later" cuz we were obviously still chewing. 10 minutes later, my parents were still eating, and they put dessert on our table anyways, which I thought was a little rude. It was fried banana, and trust me, there is better fried banana out there (Banana Leaf!!). All in all we felt rushed, and I definitely didn't think it was worth our hard earned money.

On a good note, they finally decided that yes, we could use the coupon, so that was a plus cuz otherwise I would have requested a refund from the coupon company as I'll never eat there again.

Don Francesco Ristorante860 Burrard Street, Vancouver
It was alright.
Submitted Sunday, November 13, 2011 - 12:25pm [Dine in]

We got a gift card for this place and decided to try it out. For some reason I always considered it to be a tourist trap, maybe because of it's location.

The inside is kind of dark and old, like a classic italian restaurant. The servers are all older male and seem to be staring at you from the shadows while you dine. The menu is large and has alot to offer for people who enjoy meat such as wild boar dishes.

To start we ordered the lobster bisque and the grilled calamari salad. The nutmeg in the bisque was overpowering the whole dish but the calamari salad wasn't too bad. My boyfriend thought it was almost undercooked, but atleast it wasn't overcooked!

For entree's we had the spaghetti agli olio and the fungi risotto. The spaghetti was okay, perfectly al dente but a little dry and felt like it was lacking just a bit in flavour. The risotto was pretty good, can't go wrong with truffle oil and mushrooms!

For dessert we share a panna cotta, which was fine.

All in all it was alright, everything seemed overcharged because of the location so it's probably better as a "special occasion" type of place but there are places around town that have the same quality of the items we ordered for less. And our waiter was overly hands on, as he kept on touching our utensils, glassses, etc which was kind of strange.

Submitted Tuesday, October 25, 2011 - 9:05pm [Dine in]

This place has a clean look of a remodelled house. It has a wonderful view, and fabulous food. The alcohol is a bit on the pricey side, but if you don't drink then it's manageable. I've been here a few times and have learned that this is one of those restaurants where the appy's are better than the mains. Their beef tenderloin with risotto is amazing. Their miso salad is YUM and perfectly seasoned. I can't remember what else i've had there but I've been here a few times now and will definitely be coming back!

So deceiving!!
Submitted Tuesday, October 25, 2011 - 9:02pm [Dine in]

We've passed by this place before and heard from people that it was good so went here when our other favourite place across the street was closed. From the outside it looks nice, and the menu looks inviting. They have some french classics such as coq au vin and daily specials. There was 4 of us. In total we had the bruschetta & beef tenderloins to start, french onion soup & salad nicoise, coq au vin and asparagus salad, green salad & mussels, and seafood pasta.

The beef tenderloin was nothing special, and bruschetta wasn't mainly tomato. There was onions in the bruschetta, and they accidently left some of the peel on (pet peeve of mine since it's inedible). The salads were mediocre. The green beans on the salad nicoise tasted raw, not blanched like usual. The tuna had lacked flavour.

All in all, everything lacked some sort of flavour. Maybe they are catering to the older crowd (since it IS white rock) and making everything low sodium or with little spice to please the seniors. Lesson learned!

Surprising!!
Submitted Tuesday, September 13, 2011 - 6:59pm [Take-out]

There was a coupon online for this place and when I googled it the reviews were really good (huge portions, good value ) so I went ahead and bought a coupon. I went there today and ordered 3 donairs and a tabbouleh salad - 1 regular chicken, 1 regular falafel, and 1 regular halifax.

The girl didn't even KNOW about the coupon and was going to charge me full price. Not a big deal I suppose. The donairs were the most loosely wrapped I've ever seen. Not even wrapped, just made and stuck in a baggie. The tabbouleh was missing the dressing!! Sad. I didn't find the portion size huge, just average, but maybe it depends on who's making the donairs (the owners vs the workers). All in all, I was pretty disappointed, and unfortunately I have one more coupon to renew.

Vegetarians rejoice!!!
Submitted Friday, August 19, 2011 - 10:15pm [Dine in]

This is THEE place to go for vegetarians who want to be able to eat Pho with their friends. It's the only place I know that has vegetable/tofu pho, vegetarian spring rolls, and a few other options for vegetarians (although I stick to my favourites!!). I always come here whenever i'm in the area because this is the only Pho place I know that has vegetarian options. And vegetarian spring rolls! I do have it with the fish sauce cuz it's traditional, but the flavour is still so very yummy, even without the meat. Thank goodness for Saigon Pacific!!

I usually come here on my way to work, when it's just opening. So although they haven't run out of anything (not to mention it's super fresh), they haven't finished making everything either lol!

Either way, I'm happy with what i can get (anything vegetarian),although my favourite is the green onion and cheddar. I make waffles at home and although they are good, they are not as yummy as these waffles!!

If you are in the area, it's definitely a great place to stop for a yummy snack!

Submitted Friday, March 25, 2011 - 9:56pm [Dine in]

Our usual italian place was booked solid so we decided to give this place a go. What a great place, one of my favourite italian resos to dine at in Vancouver. All of the servers were polite yet had personality. The olive tapenade that comes with the bread in the beginning was spectacular. Can't remember what we had for a starter but for our entrees I had the tagliatelle ai funghi (mushrooms with pasta) and my spouse has the mushroom risotto. Everything was prepared simple but bursting with flavour. The tiramisu was alright, not the best but not the worse, but we totally can't wait to go back again for that wonderful, rustic pasta.

Nikko Sushi Japanese Cuisine22372 Fraser Hwy, Langley
Best Sushi in Langley!!
Submitted Friday, November 12, 2010 - 5:09pm [Dine in]

We've tried a few sushi restaurants around Langley and so far this one is our favourite.

One pet peeve I have about sushi is I absolutely HATE when you order a roll (ie: kapa roll) and the roll is coming apart at the side because they didn't roll it properly. It happens pretty often with rolls that have the rice on the inside, and at Nikko sushi it never happens. It's a small thing but it's nice for presentation! Why would you want sushi that isn't even rolled properly?!

Aside from that, i can only agree with what everyone else is saying. They have great customer service, always give you a little freebie which is always yummy, fill up your tea all the time (that is also a pet peeve of mine!) and the food is consistently good. The yam roll is the biggest I've ever had and the rolls seem to be made with skill. The only thing I'm not crazy about which they make is the Spinach Gomae - I've had better elsewhere but it's one minor detail in a vast menu of other good items so not a big deal! Can't wait to go again to get my sushi fix.

Bishop's Restaurant2183 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Good food!
Submitted Saturday, October 30, 2010 - 5:42pm [Dine in]

After hearing about this place for a while, we went here a few nights ago. The menu doesn't have much for vegetarians but they were able to accommodate me, which was nice.

To start, I had the house martini which was PERFECTLY chilled and a good amount of alcohol.

For our appetizers, we had the chanterelle mushroom soup and the proscuitto red wine risotto. I love a good mushroom soup, but it was a little lacking in flavour. My spouse said that the risotto wasn't bad, red wine being a different take on things.

For our mains, he had the venison dish and I had some chef creation. He liked it very much, how there was such an array of flavours and everything was really well done. Mine was very good as well, I love every little detail put into making my dish, and I find with vegetarian food it's very hard to make flavours distinct from other elements on the dish. I absolutely LOVED everything on my dish except for some fruit tart, I'm not quite sure why it was a part of my main but I'm not a fan of sugary food on my main entree. NOTE TO VEGETARIANS: If you are like me, make sure they don't give you the fruit tart, ask for a side of risotto instead, or more of the other stuff!

We probably should have stopped at that, but we had dessert and it was alright, definitely could have done without it as it's pretty pricey and we didn't find it was worth the high price tag.

All in all, service was STELLAR, although there were some food issues, the food that we liked was VERY well done, we found the value a little on the high end but we would probably come back again!

Kismat Indian Cuisine20159 88th Ave, #D117, Langley
Yummy indian food!
Submitted Sunday, September 19, 2010 - 10:03pm [Dine in]

To date, this is our favourite indian restaurant to eat at in Langley.

I have to admit, it's probably Canadianized Indian food but it works for us!

PROS: the flavour in the dishes, ambience is modern for an indian restaurant
CONS: service was a little slower than a normal establishment (seems family run so probably not enough staff), the dishes seem a little small in portion, meals do NOT come with rice or naan bread, seems a little pricey for the amount of food you get.

In our party was 2 adults and 1 teen. We saw that service seemed a little slow, so for the appetizer, we ordered the cheese naan bread, garlic naan bread, vegetable samosas. The vegetable samosas are at par with the best i've ever had and the naan bread was good.
For the meals, we ordered the Novratana Korma (9 vegetable dish), Buttered Chicken, and Lamb Vindaloo. All of the dishes were good, and it was nice that you could order the level of spice you want - medium really is a good medium. There is alot of items to choose from, and I can't wait to come back again, except maybe order takeout so we can make or own rice!!

Submitted Friday, September 3, 2010 - 5:46pm [Dine in]

So this is my second time posting for this restaurant, if you look you can see that my original posting wasn't that favourable.

Since that time, I have ordered here a couple of times and I have to admit, it's pretty good Thai food. There are a couple of Thai restaurants in Langley but this is THE spot we go to get a Thai fix.

I will never ordered another salad there, as I find it over priced, but everything else is just lovely. The service is good (mind you it was never busy when we were there), the ambiance is quaint and cute. The quality of food is similar to what you could find in Vancouver, so we're pretty lucky to have a restaurant like this around the suburbs.

If you like Olive Garden you'll like this place
Submitted Friday, September 3, 2010 - 5:18pm [Dine in]

.. . and I don't like Olive Garden hahahaha

I've been here twice now. The last time I went was okay but it was nothing outstanding. I ordered a ceasar but it was too spicy (and i'm asian, so I LOVE spice) so i requested a new one but even the second one was just mediocre.
Not alot of vegetarian options and I don't like cream sauces but I did manage to find one entree that caught my eye. Overall it's a good place to hang out with friends, the drinks are what you would expect, the food was average, but was it anything over the top? Probably not. On a plus side, I think every entree comes with salad and bread, so if you're starving when you get there you'll get food before your entree. I would come here again but this restaurant will not be on my regular rotation of restaurants to eat at.

Empire Garden20378 88th Avenue, #100, Langley
Not constantly good, but one of the best chinese restaurants in Langley!
Submitted Friday, September 3, 2010 - 5:04pm [Dine in]

I've been to Empire Garden quite a few times now. The ambiance is quite nice and whenever I go there it seems to be clean. The restaurant is never full, so I can't imagine how people can be sat at dirty tables. My rating is based on the good times I've been there, although last time the service wasn't too good but on the other end of things it was THE BEST hot and sour soup i've ever had (i've had it many times at Empire Garden, but this one was the best ever). It seems that if the owner isn't there, the service isn't as good, which is normal I guess.
Some of the items aren't super good. Last time we were there we ordered the crispy chow mein but there was so much sauce that it wasn't really crispy at all. And I'll never order a hot pot from there again. But Empire Garden is the spot we go to for DimSum, as they make it fresh when you order (unlike the roll-cart type, where it's been sitting around) and my spouse swears by the deep fried prawn pockets. Overall it's our place to go when we're feeling like chinese food.

Divino Wine Bar1590 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Quaint little place with charm
Submitted Sunday, May 23, 2010 - 6:26pm [Dine in]

I went here as a party of 3 couples. When we first walked in I was surprised how small the place was. It being a wine bar I somehow assumed it would be large but it's not.

The menu is small but they have a 5 course tasting menu which came with wine selections so most of us ordered that. The menu itself did not have a whole lot of vegetarian options but the chef was nice enough to create a 2 course dinner for me. We started out with a meat & cheese platter (plus some marinated veg for myself) and everyone was quite happy with the selection of cured meats and various cheeses. The people who had the 5 course meals were quite happy with their meals. We were there for 3.5 hours and they only had 2 other tables of 2 people each, which is surprising. All in all it was a great time, the wine accompaniments perfectly matched the entrees and for $75 it is a steal. The server had a great personality and was very knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend this place for a small party.

Galini Greek Kouzina & Grill19475 Fraser Hwy, #101, Surrey
Our new spot for Greek food!!!
Submitted Sunday, January 31, 2010 - 5:34pm [Dine in]

We've seen this place before and heard some good reviews from friends so we decided to try it out.

The inside of the restaurant is pretty nice, doesn't look as big as it actually is from the outside.

It took a while for our server to greet us after we sat down but once we ordered the service was pretty good.

As you probably know, most Greek food plates are the same; in that retrospect the prices are on the higher end for Greek food fare but I definitely felt that it was worth it. We all ordered platters:

Spanokapita platter
Roast lamb platter
Chicken souvlaki platter

I liked how it felt like it was a 3 course meal even though you paid for one item (the platter) because first they served the soup, then the greek/caesar salad, then your platter. The platter came with your usual pita, rice, potato, main item, and mixed veg. Everything was pretty good, no complaints at all.

We decided to get dessert so we shared 2 - the Ek Mek and chocolate mousse. I order Ek Mek whenever possible because no dessert company makes Ek Mek, so I respect restaurants that have it on the menu cuz you know someone actually made it from hand. The Ek Mek was pretty good, would definitely order it again, and the chocolate mousse was your average dessert ordered from some dessert company.

All in all, we liked this place, it's probably the best that we've found close to our house, and we'd definitely come here again for our Greek food fix!!
