ORU Restaurant1038 Canada Place, Vancouver
Set Lunch
Submitted Friday, April 23, 2010 - 8:55am [Dine in]

Visited during the week and they have a set lunch of 4 courses for $24. It came bento box style with all 4 items on a tray. Tried the wonton soup, 1 wonton in some clear broth. Good but just 1 wonton! Chicken salad was good with cucumbers, not Thai like as they described. The chicken tikka or tandori was just ok. A bit watery for the sauce and the naan was not crispy enough. The chocolate cake ganache was very good. Service was good and quick. Value was poor based on the what taste, quantity. Market is much better. Ambiance is just OK, very modern looking and very loud inside. Would not return.

Pho Tan Vietnamese Restaurant4598 Main Street, Vancouver
Off the Menu items
Submitted Tuesday, April 20, 2010 - 1:20pm [Dine in]

Went here on a Friday after a friend pre-ordered a few items which isn't available on the menu. Beer crab came in a clay pot, very good with some soup on the bottom to add to some white noodles after. Crab was moist and very good. Lamb chops were made in some tangy sweat sauce and BBQ'd, very good. Then the oxtail was in some five spice and came in a thick sauce, again very good. Also had the boneless chicken wings and spring rolls off the menu.

Would go again but pre-order. The service was very good and changed plates with a better than your normal Pho place ambiance. Value was good.

Red Card Sports Bar900 Seymour Street, Vancouver
Sports Bar +
Submitted Monday, April 12, 2010 - 11:12am [Dine in]

Went here during the week, a bit after lunch time and it was pretty dead. Lots of TV's, great seats and overall a nice alternative to your normally dark, sticky floor sports bar. Menu is italian with many specialized ingredients in italian. Tried the pizzas and they were good. Really thin crust with slim toppings, what I would expect in Italy. Wood burning oven makes the crust chewy. Tried the calamari and mussels and they were pretty average. Didn't try the mains or pastas, but they looked very good. Overall a bit higher price than your normal sports bar but would return. Lots of selection for beers and cocktails. Service was quick and friendly.

Good food, bad service
Submitted Friday, April 9, 2010 - 8:43am [Dine in]

This seems to be the theme at this restaurant. They had the deluxe menu but when we asked about the difference, they admitted they didn't have the live shrimp on the deluxe. Settled for the regular and didn't notice much difference in selection. Meats were pretty good as well as the dumplings. All items came pretty quickly with a few items not showing. This was corrected on the 2nd order. Sauces were good but getting someone to refill was very difficult and it seemed like we were imposing on them. Overall service was bad. Ambiance is good for AYCE.

Olympic visit
Submitted Monday, March 1, 2010 - 2:21pm [Dine in]

Came here during the Olympics and it was not as busy as I expected, guess W4th didn't get the overflow crowd from downtown. Tried a few appies, lemon rissotto - good but tasted a bit like chinese congee, roasted bone marrow - never tried it before and it was good, gnochii - just OK, had better but the mushrooms were really good, hangar steak salad - below average based on the size and the quality of the steak, raw oyster - average, baked oysters - aveage. Service was really good and they replaced cutlery and wine glasses quickly. Ambiance is solid, new moderne feel. Value is just ok, the portions were a bit small for the price. Overall would come back and try again. No mention of any daily specials but would be interesting if they had some.

Game night
Submitted Monday, February 22, 2010 - 12:01pm [Dine in]

Went here during a Canucks away game and had a good time. Ordered some calamari and it was really good. Had the Jambalaya and it was just average with not enough spice in it. Value would be pretty good for a sports bar. Service was good and fast with the waitresss coming around to check several times. Like the ambiance as there are a lot of TV's to watch several sporting events at the same time. Will go back.

Best Bennies
Submitted Tuesday, February 16, 2010 - 4:21pm [Dine in]

Went here on a Sunday and had the best bennies. There are multiple types and chose the crab cake bennies for $11. Hollandaise sauce was excellent, very light tasting, fresh and lemony. The crab cakes were decent size and just went so well with the sauce and english muffins. Some diced tomato and onions. Just great. The hash browns were average as it seemed to be over fried (too brown). Service was excellent and fast. Nice to have some live music during brunch as there was a 5 piece band playing. Great place and good value, will return.

Olympic Experience
Submitted Monday, February 15, 2010 - 10:50am [Dine in]

Went to Yalewtown to soak up some of the Olympic atmosphere and chose George as it was less crowded. Sat outside and was able to hear the jazz band from Capone's next door as well as catch the events on 2 TV's set up for the patio. Nice seats wtih some good views and heaters. Tried the crab cakes - pretty good but a bit small, curry fries - very good, hamburger - very good but the meat patty was a bit too small for the bun. Drinks were very good, nice selection of wines and cocktails. Too bad no draft beer. Service was excellent. Appies were in the $11-$15 range with the burger at $19. A bit steep but I guess you are paying for the ambiance. Would return.

One thumbs up and one thumbs down
Submitted Thursday, February 11, 2010 - 1:26pm [Dine in]

Went here during the week and the place was about 50% full, hostess let us chose any open table which is nice. Drink list is pretty nice and ordered the regular lime marg. Liked it as it was on the rocks, the way it should be versus the slushy ones. An OK value at $7.75 but you can get a premium tequlia ones starting at $10 and up. Tried their version of hummus which was quite good with a churro as dip, pretty good, some dip left over and asked for a few more chips and that cost extra. Tried the ceasar as well as it was good but standard. Ordered their steak skillet which is like fajitas. Steak was medium rare and was really good. Friend tried the veggie taco and beef/chorizo taco. Had a taste of both and it was not very good. I thought the beef taco was the vegetarian. Tried the vegitarian and didn't finish it. A bit too much pickled cabbage. The sides (rice/beans) were an after thought and was not very good. Service was excellent and based on the mixed food reaction, was just good. Value is a bit below as 2 tacos cost $16+. Probably will not return.

Prix Fix
Submitted Tuesday, February 2, 2010 - 9:40am [Dine in]

Went during the week to try their prix fix menu. For $45 you get an appy, main and choice of cheese or dessert plus wine. For the appy, you can chose soup, salad or special dish. Chose the sweat breads, first time having it and it was a bit different in texture and taste. Won't have it again, main was chicken in red wine sauce, very good and dessert was a lemon tart which was excellent. Had a taste of the roast chicken and it seem over salted as well as the fries which was too salty. Service was very good and attentive and the value for the prix fix was very good. I don't think the value for a la carte is that great.

Great little place like their sister restaurants, would return.

Great Seafood restaurant
Submitted Monday, February 1, 2010 - 9:42am [Dine in]

Went during the week and sat by the waterside, a great view of the river. Started with the chicken drummettes. Nice and crispy with a bit of soy and ginger flavour. Shared some mussels which were very good and lots of garlic. Then had the sable fish and shellfish pasta. Very good fish and lots of mussels and clams. A bit too much roasted garlic for me but overall a great dish. Lots of bottled beers to choose from. Service was very good with the value to be just OK. Love to come back during the summer and have dinner on the deck.

Taco Platter
Submitted Friday, January 29, 2010 - 1:47pm [Dine in]

This is located inside the Lonsdale Quay. Visited during lunch and menu board has a lot of selections such as Burritos, Tacos, Tamales and platters. Also they have a small area to pick up some Mexican food goods including a fridge for prepared foods and sauces. Tried their taco platter. $9 for 3 tacos plus some beans and rice. The chicken tacos were a bit on the dry side as the taco had no condiments added. The chicken had little flavour. After adding some salsa, it was much better. The beef taco was a bit better but the meat was ground not shredded like the chicken. Beans and rice were good. Value was was average but the service was quick and friendly. It's a food court type of place so Ambiance would be average.

Overal, would try it again.

Standard Dim Sum
Submitted Tuesday, January 19, 2010 - 4:25pm [Dine in]

Visited Pelican during the weekend and arrived at around noon. A few spots for parking which was nice and a 5 min wait. Ordered the usuals, shrimp dumplings - big and nice, sui mai - big but a bit tough, rice noodles - good fillings but a but too thick, vermecilli - good curry flavour and ample meat. Service was quick and I like the order sheets versus the carts. Seating was a bit cramped but adequate. Prices are a bit high for the area and quality but would return.

Good pizza
Submitted Wednesday, December 30, 2009 - 9:56am [Dine in]

Went here for a bit to eat before a movie and it seems like half the diners were doing the same. Had some of the comp bread to start and it was really good with an olive oil dip. Ordered the grilled calamari - too salty and a bit on the small side, caprese salad - small but good and a small pizza - very good. The pizza was one of the best I've had with nice toppings and thin slighly chewy crust. Service was good and fast. Value is just OK for what you got. Will come back to try the pastas.

Typical Greasy spoon
Submitted Tuesday, December 29, 2009 - 3:03pm [Dine in]

Didn't know a place like this still exists in the high rent area of the west end but tried it on a weekend and got exactly what I expected. They have 5 specials that are under $5. Seem like a good deal. Ordered an item on the regular menu that consisted of hash browns with some various meats and veggies. Was just ok with too little meat and veggies. The hash browns were not browned enough. Eggs were done as ordered. I guess for $7, I got what I paid for. Service was quick and coffe refilled. Ambiance is poor as I sat on a plastic lawn chair. For a quick fill up, would return.

More about it than the food.
Submitted Tuesday, December 29, 2009 - 2:58pm [Dine in]

Went by during late weeknight as found it about 1/2 empty as I heard it gets busy all the time. Ordered 2 types of gyoza's and they were good. Wouldn't say they were that much better than any other authentic Japanese places but just good. Had the beef salad which had nice ginger dressing, the fish cakes which were a bit on the soft side and the ebi mayo, very good. Service was great and the ambiance was probably the best out of it all. Price is reasonable for what you get. Would return.

Just OK ramen
Submitted Tuesday, December 29, 2009 - 2:54pm [Dine in]

Went here during the holidays and it wasn't that busy. Was seated quickly and ordered the miso ramen. The soup looked and tasted really good but the ramen was a bit of a let down. It tasted like the pre-packaged ones you can buy at a asian store. No real taste and the noodles had not texture you would expect. The pork was a bit on the lean side and no flavour other than salt. Service was good and fast. Decor was minimal. Overall, wouldn't go back for this price.

Nice Dinner
Submitted Thursday, December 24, 2009 - 12:27pm [Dine in]

Went here during the week for a dinner party and had a nice experience. Started with the salmon tartar which was very good. Then had some steak in tomato sauce, it tasted more like beef stew as it wasn't steak like as it was cut up into cubes. Ended with fruit crumble which was very good. Service was great as there was a large group. Overall value was pretty decent at approx. $30 for the whole dinner. Ambiance is just average as it's a tight space and it gets quite hot.

Pizza and Pasta place
Submitted Thursday, December 17, 2009 - 9:33am [Dine in]

Went here on a weeknight and it gets full by 7pm. A small place and well appointed. Open kitchen and bar along one side, seats are spaced nicely and there are several seats along the long bar. Menu is small and has some nice appies including the thinly sliced italian ham, buffalo mozzarella, and a couple of different types of crostinis. All were very good. The mains are split in to pastas and pizzas. Pizzas were very good, thin crust and a bit chewy with ample toppings. Pastas were good, cooked al dente with nice sauces. Tried the meatballs and gnocchi and rigatoni. Service was very good with nice reommedations on wines. Bottles in the $35-$45 range. Value overall was pretty good. Would return.

Late night AYCE
Submitted Monday, November 30, 2009 - 3:21pm [Dine in]

Went for a snack after a hockey game and found that the late night AYCE was a better deal than ordering a la carte. I don't know when it starts but it was on at 9:30. A standard menu for $11 then you can expand and include sashimi and some other things for $4 more. The standard was pretty good with lots of sushi and hot items. Sushi was good and fresh as well as the rolls tried (scallop, cali, tuna). Gyoza were good as well. The bad part was the oyster motoyaki, it came in a tin dish and there were no oysters, just small bits of scallops. Service was fast and efficient. Would return for a late night, but don't know if it's worth a full price.
