Cafe du Soleil1393 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Hipster dive
Submitted Sunday, December 27, 2015 - 6:34pm [Dine in]

Went for brunch with my 4yr old son for his birthday as read the place was kid friendly. That may be so, but food quality + taste was lacking (even for veg), the place was dirty, and the servers seem like pot heads waiting impatiently for their next smoke break and not really interested in much else. Basically a cafeteria rather than a restaurant. Would not recommend nor go back.

Top's Restaurant2790 Kingsway, Vancouver
Good Breakfasts
Submitted Sunday, May 19, 2013 - 12:25pm [Dine in]

We stop here quite often for breakfast. I'd say most of the breakfast items have been ordered and, for the most part, everyone is happy with the quality and consistency of the food. The prices are not the cheapest around but for around $10 or so you get a good meal. Service is generally attentive and the food is fairly quick to come out. Ambiance is alright, though the choice and volume of music playing may irritate some people on occasion and the place is a bit dark. A solid choice, recommended.

Uncle Ming's Kitchen is very solid
Submitted Tuesday, December 14, 2010 - 9:38pm [Dine in]

We were going to stop in for take-out but the wife wanted to eat-in for some reason. Ambiance is spartan, fluorescent lighting and no-frills decoration. That being said, the food was great!

Started with Hot & Sour soup and 2 egg rolls. The soup was very tasty, with a good kick and included actual prawns and meat, unlike some cheap versions I've come across. The egg rolls were fired golden brown and were not greasy in any way. The taste was what I would expect from and egg roll, miles better than your average grease stick that you find in some places. Next we had a special, Spicy Garlic Pork with Cabbage on Rice as well as Spicy Singapore style Chicken Chow Mein. My significant other found the spicy garlic a little too spicy (she asked them to tone it down) but I enjoyed it, next time I'd like to try at full strength! The Chow Mein was excellent, not greasy or dried out and with a nice amount of curry. Noodle texture was very good as well.

Portion size on all dishes was good but not humongous. That said prices are not that high so I would say value is still very good.

Service was friendly and prompt. Hot green tea was refilled numerous times. Total was $23 for everything but I left $40 because I thought they earned it. This is your typical 'Mom & Pop' operation but the cook obviously knows what he is doing. Would recommend and will return (although probably for take-out).

Also worth noting, as I looked into it before going, they had a good inspection from Vancouver Coastal Health as of December 9, 2010. This is more than can be said for many places around town...

2nd try, still the samne...
Submitted Sunday, September 19, 2010 - 10:19am [Dine in]

Had not been the LN for a couple of years. They have tried to update the decor a bit since then it seems. Anyway, as for the food, it was the same as ever. (Last time I recall my dish was also swimming in oil).

Stir-fry with pork in hot garlic sauce looked good until you noticed it was swimming in a liter of 10w30. I could make stir-fry with more care than this.... That said, the noodles were good for what I ate of them. My wife mistakenly ordered a noodle dish, more like a soup, a peanut soup with beef. Not that appealing to her though I didn't mind a little of it. Also ordered dumplings in peanut sauce, as a starter, which appeared to have been microwaved and, for my tastes, just didn't mesh with the peanut sauce/soup. This arrived after both mains.

Service was alright, not really friendly per se but efficient enough.

So, I think I'm done with this one for the foreseeable future. Would not recommend.

Decent viet sandwich, very good fritter
Submitted Saturday, May 8, 2010 - 10:12am [Dine in]

Stopped in for a quick bite and ordered a viet chicken sandwich and an apple fritter. The fritter was very good, nice texture and good taste, not too sweet. Way better than anything you may get at Crap Horton. Chicken sandwich was okay but the chicken wasn't as flavorful as you would find from most Vietnamese sandwich shops. The bread was really good though. Prices seemed average for what I received, no complaints. Service was quick and efficient.

Costco Restaurant605 Expo Blvd., Vancouver
Quick snack while DT
Submitted Monday, March 15, 2010 - 7:42pm [Dine in]

Was in the mood for a quick bite after perusing some of the deals inside. Usual choice of hot dog and drink for $2, you can't go wrong. Only thing here is the lack of condiments compared to other Costco locations. No peppers, no kraut, though they did have onions in small plastic containers. Not quite as good without all the goods!

Service was quick although there was a long line when I went into the warehouse initially. Ambiance was alright, at least you're outside.

Red Bar Lounge350 Gifford Street, New Westminster
Red Bar Appy's while watching Canucks game
Submitted Monday, March 15, 2010 - 7:31pm [Dine in]

Was there with the brother-in-law to watch the Canucks and do a little gambling. Ordered Nachos with chicken pieces and Calamari. Nachos were very basic, hardly a hot pepper or olive to be seen and the chicken was bland and dried out. Calamari was a bit soggy although the chili mayo was a good accompaniment. Portion was also very small for the Calamari. Service was fairly quick once we could track someone down and she did a good job at checking up and bringing fresh drinks.

Overall, not good value for totally unremarkable pub style food. Nice enough place to watch the game if you don't mind casino racket.

Hon's Wun Tun House408 6th Street, New Westminster
Cheap and greasy
Submitted Sunday, March 7, 2010 - 6:39pm [Dine in]

Went here for lunch with the wife the other day. Ordered beef pot stickers, curry beef brisket with rice, and Shanghai noodles with green beans and pork.

Service was slow and inattentive to begin with (even for Hon's) and then the server said they didn't have steamed pot stickers so we went with pan-fried. Loads of grease is the best way to describe them which was quite a bit worse then previous times we've had them there. Curry beef brisket was good, always order it here, nice and tender. Noodles were like a greasy spaghetti with no sauce and little bits of pork thrown in. Not a winner.

Paid the bill and got out. The place looks like it could use some upkeep to say the least. Still, value is pretty good if your standards are low.

Jumbo Sushi Japanese Restaurant6648 No. 3 Road, Richmond
Richmond Olympic Sushi Experience
Submitted Thursday, February 25, 2010 - 11:21pm [Dine in]

Walking back from the Richmond O-Zone, the wife and I were looking for a bite. Jumbo sushi didn't look that inviting but she wanted Sushi so we thought we'd give it a try.

The food was excellent. She had a Bento Box with excellent tempura among other things. We shared an order of Gyoza as a starter, again excellent, and a large Sushi tray. Fish was fresh, rolls nicely prepared and fairly large.

The service was friendly but slow and hard to come by at times. Ambiance was ramshackle Ikea, could use a bit of design help and capital it seems. Plastic cups for tea, no cup or straw at all for can of pop. No liquor license.

Overall, great value for Sushi. I've been to places that serve larger rolls actually but here the quality was superior. Good choice, will return for sushi fix.
