Romantic and tasty
Submitted Tuesday, November 20, 2007 - 8:38pm [Dine in]

Oh god! For a date you must try the cushion room. I got to sit on these very soft cushions with my sweetheart in a way you cant sit with someone at a table, it almost feels like your in bed with them its very intimate and romantic and dimly lit with candle light
The Pakawra could be considered the worlds greatest 'Fry' Variation. The food was delicious and had reasonable portions.It definitly wasnt fruffy or anything like that. I also recommend there three dip platter to start or you might not get full off there dishes since there are very little carbs served with your meal (Our meal came with a salad and a few Pakawra) i got full off just one beef kabob though it was delicious and tasted like good grade steak. the ambience was great very relaxing and romantic would definitly go when i want to impress.

Good taste comes in large packages
Submitted Monday, November 19, 2007 - 8:39pm [Dine in]

This place has a fantastic unique taste. They claim to be Greek, Lebanese and Hawaiin. This is a hole in the wall kinda place and i was a bit skeptical when i first walked in but oh god the food smelt so great i was hooked from the beggining, if you love donairs there super chicken is MASSIVE! for 6 or 7$, This is the kinda place you wouldnt notice if you were just driving by, that place is disturbingly good im getting a craving for it as im writing this.

Solid Tsunami
Submitted Monday, November 19, 2007 - 8:28pm [Dine in]

The srevice and ambiance were fantastic at this place but nothing really blew me away, the rolls were tasty but the selection was so-so, Not to many menu items and i had heard they had great spicy sashimi, THEY DO NOT HAVE SPICY SASHIMI!!! There regular sashimi tasted fresh, the miso soup was good and everything was really solid but nothing blew me away i think your mostly paying for the room which is considerd a status thing to some people which is why 'supposably' celebrities stop by. Basically you have your choice of whatever comes floating by on boats or a handfull of things on the menu, they have a great mud pie though and id recommend the house roll but like i said Not fantastic not terrible just solid.

Over wok, under paid
Submitted Monday, November 19, 2007 - 12:12am [Dine in]

The worst thing that can be said about hons is the servers who quickly take your order and then deliver it to you in a short time, your server really doesnt give you that human interaction you usually get at other places, you can tell there underpaid and there english isnt that great but who cares they have great food, i would recomend the prawn and broccoli in spicy black bean sauce with a few good pot stickers, the best desert is their mango pudding its served with a bit of milk on the side and it leaves a pleasnt taste in your mouth all day, the foods always solid, it doesnt pretend to be a fancy place or anything but they have alot of selection (more then most places i've seen) and the food tastes pretty good. I also always go there when i have a cold as the hot and sour soup is the best cure.

Miko Sushi Japanese Restaurant1335 Robson Street, Vancouver
Fruffy portions subpar taste
Submitted Tuesday, November 13, 2007 - 12:24am [Dine in]

So my favourit sushi place kadoya is closed on Mondays, but i had such a craving for spicy sashimi and tempura I ventured to Robson street to find this disappointment. I orderd the spicy tuna sashimi a miso soup and a half order of prawn tempura. The miso soup was probably the best thing i had. Their spicy sashimi came in a tiny portion with what tasted like rooster brand hot sauce and tabiko (i was not aware of the tabiko untill it arrived) but what horrified me was it came pureed!!! SASHIMI SHOULD COME CUT NOT PUREED!! And it was bland tasting to boot, The prawn tempura appy was 7$ for three small pieces and the tempura sauce wasnt even sweet it tasted like soya sauce that had the taste filtered out. for a miso soup, a tiny portion (itd say 1/2 cup worth) of Spicey tuna sashimi and an appy prawn tempura it came out to 20.68$............. The service was good and everything looked clean was the only positive, but i hate leaving a place hungy after having small bland portions of food, had to eat somewhere else afterwards. Sadly disappointed since i really wanted to like this place.

Greasy and questionable
Submitted Monday, October 22, 2007 - 10:59pm [Dine in]

Chinese food should not be this questionable take an outstanding place like hons, they are clean and always friendly, fast and tasty. This place is quite the opposit. Everything seems stale and a food hazard. One of the cooks was just going Awall in the back screaming about something in Chinese. I can still taste the food it was so bad and that was last week. The fortune cookies are so stale you could chip a tooth. Are food took awhile to get there the lady who served us looked like she wanted to hang herself and i dont think that was chicken in the chicken and broccoli!

All India Restaurant1188 Davie Street, Vancouver
Most reasonably priced
Submitted Monday, October 22, 2007 - 10:50pm [Dine in]

I have been many times, the buffet is good value and tonights takeout was exceptional. Got the vegy samosas, the tandori chicken, butter chicken, prawn goa curry, and a few orders of kheer and there special garlic naan bread. The samosas were packed full of flavour. The chicken is always tender and the prawn curry was so good i was litterly licking my fingers afterwards and the naan bread is soft and melts in your mouth. The kheer was a nice ending. The servers are always friendly and eager to please and all this came out to about 50$ after tip and the portions were generous enough to have left overs for the next few nights. Highly recomended and i think the best value.

Stuffed and Smiling
Submitted Monday, October 15, 2007 - 10:13pm [Dine in]

You get what you pay for, 10.95 gets you stuffed and smiling, Solid mongolian food with a great experience. I enjoyed the buffet style layout, ambiance was solid, not hideous and not anything to talk about really. Its a simple good concept because its not like you can blame the cook if you dont like what you get since you pick what goes in your food, I really enjoyed the beef which had a jerky dry quality when cooked, same went for all other meats, the tastiest combination i came up with was chicken +onion +mushroom+noodles+currey sauce+hot pepper sauce =yummy curry dish, definitly worth a try if your in the area

Tacos Mexico nasty
Submitted Monday, August 27, 2007 - 7:40pm [Dine in]

Terrible service, food made us sick and tasted microwaved. Not very authentic. The ambiance was a mexican soap opera on the small t.v that hung above us. Chips were broken end of the bag pieces and their sauces were cheap out of the bottle sauces. Would never go again.

A tad understaffed
Submitted Monday, August 20, 2007 - 10:27pm [Dine in]

A few days ago I tried this place with my boyfriend and got the dinner special for two non vegetarian. The pakoras were delicious I loved the sauce it came with, the lamb dish was so and so and the butter chicken was pretty good but not the best, i would have given this place a three but The one item that really stood out from the meal was the Mango Lassi which was excellent and the dessert is above average as well. But although we were the only people there our meal came pretty slow and our waiter spent all his time at the phone. I would definitly suggest this place for Lassi and dessert though.

India Grill1835 West 4th Ave., Vancouver
Best indian in Kits
Submitted Monday, August 20, 2007 - 10:01pm [Dine in]

India Grill has really tacky decor, and the music is an acquired taste, but the food is wonderful. The naan bread is wonderfully light and flavorful, the chutneys and tamerand sauce served with pakoras are a must. The chicken vindaloo, Tikkas and butter chicken are all beautifully done, with perfectly tender pieces of meat and great flavors. My favorite is the tandoori chicken with extra mint chutney. I love this place, though not as much as my sister who's ordered every single entree on the menu and loves it all. Enjoy

When its good its very good when its bad...
Submitted Monday, August 20, 2007 - 9:47pm [Dine in]

Pros: Nice portions with delicious taste, the soup and nachos are my favourit because they are usually just full of flavour and toppings, there salsa bar is great so is their delicious juice.

Cons: I dont like eating inside that much its kinda tacky and small and they use to have sketchy staff im happy to say not anymore

Nat's New York Pizzeria1080 Denman St., Vancouver
Promising pizza
Submitted Tuesday, May 15, 2007 - 1:32pm [Dine in]

Apperantly there delivery service is sub par but on a sunny day if you ever encounter this small establishment i recomend you try it. At the front they have a wonderful display full of large well topped pizza slices. Honestly the best pizza ive ever had. If you'r a honey fan i suggest trying the honey on your meat lovers which comes packed with fresh italian meats and if you get anything with mushrooms 'forget about it!' its amazing. As a pizza fanatic im very picky about my pizza and this place has to be my favourite.

Kadoya Japanese1063 Davie Street, Vancouver
Art on a roll!
Submitted Tuesday, May 1, 2007 - 10:30pm [Dine in]

Joined the site just to rave about this little piece of heaven.
Kadoya is a cafe sized establishment at the heart of davie street.
As soon as you walk in your senses are graced with a tantalizing smell of tempura to walk through the crowd is to watch people marveling at a generous sized piece of art like watching people in a museum watching the Mona Lisa. After a wait during rush hours (lunch and dinner) your seated by a smiling friendly waitress (unlike alot of places the service is always friendly) and
asked if youd like to start with tea or water. The green tea is great and doesnt have that gritty after taste some teas get. On the walls are mountains of customer reviews about the amazingly colorful rolls. The sashimi is unbelievable and mouth watering i recommend the spicey sashimi (salmon and tuna are both equally great) and the clam miso to start. Both are generous sized and are wonderfully presented. The rolls are colorful and ive never seen three kinds of roe on a roll! All the rolls i have tried are delicious one roll the snow white i had my doubts about since it contained coconut... it could've gone either way but kadoya pulled through and gave me a palatte pleasing experience and the desert roll was to die for! And what did an incredible meal consisting of the best sashimi, miso soup and sushi with a desert roll for two people set me back? 50$ with tip I also go in there frequently for smaller meals that set me back from 10 - 15$ with tip. The bento boxes are also tasty and filled to the rim with delicious goodness and will set you back about 9$
Amazing value and the best sushi ive ever tried. Take it from someone whos tried almost every sushi place in Vancouver and has spent anywhere from 5 - 25$ on just a roll. This is the best value with 5 star taste anywhere.
