Wang's Beef Noodle House8390 Granville Street, Vancouver
Late night meal
Submitted Wednesday, November 10, 2010 - 9:37am [Dine in]

Great place for a late night meal. Ordered the beef in onion pancake, very good, beef brisket noodle which was very good. Noodles had some texture to it and there was lots of tasty beef. Ordered the Shanghai steamed buns and it was not very good. Thick skin and not much soup inside. Service was quick and efficient and the place was well decorated. Would return as total bill was under $20.

Great Service
Submitted Monday, November 8, 2010 - 9:46am [Dine in]

Went here on a weekday night and it was still quite busy. The chef makes a effort to be seen around the restaurant which is good and he was actually clearing tables. Good to come around and greet customers. Tried the medium rare, thinly shaved veal as an appy. Very good with a nice sauce. Tried the traditional osso bucco and it was actually a bit on the dry side, could of used a bit more sauce. The rissoto was very good. Service overall was excellent, with great recommendations, folding of your napkin each time you got out of the seat and never rushed. The value was just good as there seemed like more thousand dollar wines on the list then under one hundred dollar wines. Food prices are resonable for the quality. Great room and decor. Would return for a special occasion.

Haru Sushi2041 Lonsdale Ave., North Vancouver
Good Sushi Option
Submitted Thursday, November 4, 2010 - 8:38am [Dine in]

Tried Haru for lunch on a weekday and a good place for a fast bento box. About 6 to choose and range in prices from $6-$10. Chose the one with sashimi. Chicken terriyaki was pretty standard, OK sauce. The Cali roll was average, not that much rice which is good. The tempura seemed very fresh as was crispy. The sashimi (2 tuna and 3 farmed salmon) were cut into big pieces which made it hard to eat. Oveall, good quantity for the price of approx. $9. Service was quick and efficient. Nice decor and pretty clean. Would return.

Food court chinese food in a sit down setting
Submitted Tuesday, November 2, 2010 - 1:51pm [Dine in]

Visited during lunch time as they advertise $5.95 lunch specials. Room is a bit sparse in terms of decor but adequate for what the restaurant is, quite clean. The place was 2/3 full which is a good sign. During lunch they seem to just serve various combo deals, meat, rice, noodles. It does not seem you can order a la carte as you can during dinner. Tried the beef with veggies with noodles. The beef and veggies was just OK, on par with pre-made food just like at a food fair at a mall. The noodles tasted pre-made and a bit on the limp side. The portions were huge and I think that's their main selling point, value. Overall, would return if I want a big lunch for cheap. Service was good and fast.

Sushi Han Take-out Restaurant8180 No. 2 Rd., #182, Richmond
Poor Service for so so sushi
Submitted Tuesday, October 26, 2010 - 2:13pm [Dine in]

Visited for lunch during a Saturday and the place was about 2/3 full. The service seemed very slow as there was only one server and one person behind the counter. Slow to get tea, menu and orders. I had to waive down the server a few times before the orders were taken. Order a few of the regular rolls, cali, scallop, dynamite and overall it was just OK. My tea was never refilled and again had to waive down to get the bill. The place is quite nice inside but would not return due to the slow service.

Sushi Katsu1857-1861 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
So many better places
Submitted Friday, October 1, 2010 - 1:50pm [Dine in]

Went here on a weekday for lunch and ordered one of the bento boxes. There are many to chose from and they are $2 cheaper during lunch time. Had a sashimi box and the fish was not cut very well, a bit too bit and all different sizes. The rice on the 3 pieces of sushi was too big and a bit on the hard side. It came with a Vietnamese spring roll which was over fried and unedible. Udon soup on the side and it was just OK. Overall a very poor effort for $9.50. The staff are all cantonese and they also have a chinese menu which is a signal for you to pass on this place. Service was just adequate and the place was pretty clean. Suggest you go next door to Sen Sushi where it's a mom and pop place for better sushi.

New Indian Place off Lonsdale
Submitted Monday, September 27, 2010 - 8:43am [Dine in]

Tried it on a weeknight and started with the prawn appy which was very good as well as the somosas - nice and not thick as some places. Tried a lamb dish which was very good and you can add naan, rice and salad for a small price. Prices in the low teens at dinner and overall value is good. Service was excellent as the owner was out and described all of the dishes. Others tried the butter chicken which was good. Nice and clean inside, would come again to try the lunch specials.

Submitted Tuesday, September 14, 2010 - 2:33pm [Dine in]

Went on a weekend and by 7pm, only seats available were outside. Not bad as it was heated. Tried the calamari which was very good as well as the brusheta. Ordered the chicken and it was quite large, 1/2 chicken for a reasonable price. A 1/2 order of pasta as well which was very good. Service was great. Value was good but the mains came a la carte. Overall would return, good atmosphere.

Great Patio
Submitted Thursday, September 2, 2010 - 1:26pm [Dine in]

Came here on a weekday and sat out in the small patio. Really nice views of the cove. Menu had some interesting dishes but mainly sandwiches and pastas. They did have a small selection of brunch items which was surprising for a weekday. Chose the pasta with shrimp and crab. Lots of shrimp and crab tossed with olive oil and fresh herbs. Nice and light for lunch. Portion was pretty good and good value for $17. Service was quick and efficient. Would return for a few drinks and dinner.

Went here on a weeknight and it was busy but a few large table left. Tried the pick 8 dish special menu for approx. $100 and you get soup, 1/2 duck, rice and dessert. Dishes included egg plant in clay pot - good and not over cooked, bitter melon and beef - just ok, a bit overcooked, veal in black pepper - good with thin slivers of veal, buddhist feast - good with nicely fried tofu on the bottom, steamed fish over tofu - just ok a bit too many bones, beef satay and vermecilli pot - just Ok and a few more dishes. Overall quality was good and the portions were fair size. Service was prompt and food came out quick. Follow up such as refilling tea/water and bill was a bit on the slow side. Would return.

Brunch place
Submitted Monday, August 23, 2010 - 3:41pm [Dine in]

This is my backup plan if Zen has a line up. Normally get a table for brunch without trouble on the weekends. Tried the hobbit benny which includes mushrooms. They use back bacon instead of ham which is a nice change. Eggs are cooked perfect with just average hollandaise sauce. Rarely eat the fried has browns (more like cubed french fries). Coffee is not very good, a bit on the weak side. Service is fast and friendsly. Place needs a bit of a reno as it looks tired. Overall prices are average.

More than a Drinking Place
Submitted Monday, August 23, 2010 - 10:44am [Dine in]

Went by on a Friday evening for some drinks and found out that it was more than a beer/drink place as it seems to be from the outside. Tried the shoe string fries-nice a crips with bits of bacon, wings - nice glaze over crispy wings, sliders - average, mussels - nice with a great sauce. Overall the place is a great for hanging out and sharing a few appies. No real mains but food for sharing. Service was good and fast. Ambiance is great as big sliding windows open up. Would return.

Ming's Restaurant1321 Quadra St., Victoria
Needs a Restaurant Makeover
Submitted Friday, August 20, 2010 - 11:13am [Dine in]

Visited here a few weeks back and I swear the place looks like a scene from Miami Vice. The decoration is a bit neon like inside with stars/neon on the ceiling and 80's like decor. Tried a few dishes such as the BBQ Duck - big and bit on the salty side, Cripsy Chicken - crisp but dry inside a bit over cooked, fried noodles - veggies were old fashioned and all western, a big too much sauce made it soggy, Vegetarian Dish - bad with some chinese type of gluten from a can, S&S Pork - bad, soggy and swimming in sauce, Tofu - crispy and good.

Overall the food was just OK and geared towards western tastes. Service was good and attentive. Overall, a tired looking place that needs to change if it's going to last another 10 years.

Rice & Tea House965 Marine Drive, North Vancouver
Moved into Cap mall
Submitted Thursday, August 19, 2010 - 3:06pm [Dine in]

I believe they have moved in the Capilano Mall. It says Thai food but it's really a Chinese food fair restaurant where you pick 1-3 items plus rice or noodle. I don't know why they call it a Thai restauant as all of the dishes are Chinese. Tried the beef brisket - skimp on the meat which was tough and spicy wontons - average. Came with rice vermeceilli for $6.99. Overall, edible but won't return. Quick service as food is pre-made. Poor value based on quantity and quality.

Good Food Fair choice
Submitted Thursday, August 19, 2010 - 2:56pm [Dine in]

Located in the South Park Royal food fair. Ordered the beef shortribs and it was very good. Grilled right in front of you while you wait, thinly sliced with a slightly sweet marinade. Comes with 2 sides so tried the glass noodles which was very good and the friend tofu - good. They have a BBQ that's not made out of vinegar that is very good. More like a mayo. Two scoops of seasoned rice which is good. Pretty good service and for $7.99, a good value. Ambiance is just good for a food fair. Would return.

Came here on a weekend dinner and sat outside. Great patio with lots of tables. Tried some appys including the boneless pork - very basic pub fare with some sauce on it, just ok and the samosas - frozen kind that was just deep fried, not very good. They had the prime rib on special and tried that. Ordered it medium rare and it came well done which is not good. Came with veggies - average, yorkshire pudding - good and mashed potatoes- ok. Overall food was low end pub food. Service was good and fast. Value was there even with the poor food quality. Should of stuck with the basic burgers.

Good XLB
Submitted Friday, August 6, 2010 - 8:49am [Dine in]

Went for a visit during a weeknight and it was approx. 2/3 full. Tried several things. XLB (soup pork dumpliing) was very good - thin skin and lots of soup inside. Suggestion is to have a larger spoon as the one they gave us is rather small. Green Onion pancake - just so so as it wasn't as flaky inside. Nanjing Duck - pretty good but served at room temp. Maybe better if served cold. Shanghai Noodles - solid but pretty standard. Stir Fried Chinese Rice Cakes - pretty good but like other places. Fish Noodle - one of their signature dishes, wasn't my favorite as it lacked flavour. Spareribs - another one of their signature dishes, a bit fatty and seemed like it was boiled too long. Egg plant - very good dish, the best one of the night served with some ground pork.

Service was good as they replaced dishes and refilled water glasses quickly. Nice looking restaurant. Value was not bad at under $20 per person all in. Would come back.

Sala Thai888 Burrard, #102, Vancouver
Expensive Thai for tourists
Submitted Tuesday, August 3, 2010 - 10:26am [Dine in]

Came here on a weeknight as it's near the theatres. Ordered a few dishes - Papaya salad - good but really small, Angel Wings - boneless stuffed chicken wings - good but only 2, Pad Thai - their signature version, very good, Green Curry - lots of meat and veggies, Penang Beef Curry - good level of spice, very good. The service was good with lots of people working. Ambiance is a bit too touristy with a rickshaw and couple of out of place decorations on the wall. It's def geared towards the out of town visitors. Food is good but not for the price they are charging as there are many other restaurants that have just as good food for a better price.

Submitted Wednesday, July 28, 2010 - 2:26pm [Dine in]

Visited here during the week for lunch and fairly busy. They seem to have a good following for lunch from the local offices. Seems like your big menu HK Cafe with the specialty being curries. Ordered the chicken curry and it was very good, smooth and not too spicy - HK style. Also shared the beef vermeceilli and some green veggies. Overall pretty good and big portions. Quality is a bit higher than your typical HK Cafe and price reflects. Service is quick and efficient. Clean inside. Good Value.

Submitted Monday, July 26, 2010 - 3:22pm [Dine in]

Visited on a weekday for lunch. Newer sushi place with bright interior and well decorated. A bit small with some tables quite close to each other. An outside eating area with a few tables, overall ambiance is very good. Went for the dynamite roll combo, around $9. Big dynamite roll with cali filling, very good but a bit hard to eat as the roll was so big. Also 2 pieces of tuna - very good and salmon - just Ok as it was farmed salmon. Rice piece was small which is good and the quality of the sushi rice good. Service was quick and they seem to have lots of speciality rolls to try in the future. Would come back.
