Indian Oven2006 4th Avenue West, Vancouver
Good Delivery
Submitted Friday, April 17, 2009 - 2:36pm [Dine in]

Last night, my girlfriend and I had a craving for Indian food, so we decided to order in. After riffling through our various take-out menus, we decided on Indian Oven, because of the lower minimum order compared to other Indian resturants ($25). We ordered two butter chickens, one hot and one mild, and several pieces of naan bread. We were told it would arrive in 40-45 minutes, which seemed fair, and the food arrived piping hot and on time, about 40 minutes later. We've never dined in at the particular restaurant, but we were pleasantly surprised by both the quality and portions of the entrees. The butter chicken was delicious, the hot was properly hot, and the mild properly mild. The substantial portions were actually more than we could finish, and well worth the wait and money (12.95 per entree, and 1.75 for each naan). My only complaint is that the naan seemed a bit on the doughy side, not as light and fluffy as I'm accustomed to.

Eatery, The3431 W Broadway, Vancouver
Funky Fusion Sushi in Kits!
Submitted Thursday, April 16, 2009 - 2:57pm [Dine in]

I've been here several times with my friends and boyfriend, and have never been disappointed with the food. While it may be a bit pricey for sushi, it was a great deal on the fusion stuff for which they are so well known. I try to get something different from the menu and so far I have not been disappointed. From creations such as the 'Bob Marley' (avocado, mango, tuna, cusabi), to the 'Italian Stallion' (prosciutto, papaya, eel, cream cheese, hot pesto sauce), to the 'Zen Maki' (crab, tuna, salmon, prawn, unagi, scallop, cucumber, asparagus, avocado, roe) everything was an absolute hit. As a globe trotter of sorts in the sushi domain, I've seen interesting dishes, but none as many as the Eatery, and definitely not many that compares price-wise.

I've also tried some of their cocktails, and although they could use a little bit more alcohol in them they are pretty good, and at $5 each a pretty good deal.

Though the loud music and dark atmosphere may not be for everyone, it has always been fun when you're just wanting to hang out. Not the place to go if you're looking for something quieter and more romantic for sure.

Overall, favourite place to go for fusion sushi.

Pricey... perhaps too pricey...
Submitted Thursday, April 16, 2009 - 2:30pm [Dine in]

My parents took my boyfriend and I here to celebrate their 25th Anniversary. Needless to say, I was a little disappointed. When we came in we were greeted and asked to wait in the lounge area which was rather nice actually. The ambiance was really exceptional- from lighting to decor, it was all around spectacular. We were seated shortly and the waiter (who was one of the highlights of the evening) made the rounds and took our orders. Then we waited... and waited... I swear if I had not been talking so much I would have been more irritated at how long it was taking to get our food out. It took literally at LEAST an hour until we finally got bread! It wasn't a particularly busy evening as well- maybe 5-6 other tables at most, and it wasn't like anything of what we ordered could have possibly taken that long (I had the sablefish, my bf the cornish hen, my sis the 8oz steak, and my parents a few seafood dishes). When it finally did arrive I was surprised at the portions. Though it seems as though everyone else had a good size meal, mine and my bf was teeny tiny. For over $25 each, I expected a bit more... Although the meal itself was rather tasty, I don't know if I would want to pay this much for the size of it, and the time it took just to get it.

A Nice Find
Submitted Thursday, April 16, 2009 - 2:15pm [Dine in]

Hidden away on a West Broadway strip, we found this little gem. The owners were hospitable and friendly, and though we had to order at the counter they brought us our food quickly. The place is nice in that it wasn't crowded, but did have a steady stream of what appeared to be loyal patrons. I ordered the smoked salmon panini and it was delicious. My boyfriend ordered a chicken panini and for dessert we both had their freshly made cookies. A cozy little spot to stop in for lunch.

Good Food, Great Service, Decent Price
Submitted Thursday, April 16, 2009 - 6:30am [Dine in]

My boyfriend and I have eaten here several times, and are never disappointed with what we ordered. Being the exciting and adventurous person I am, I order butter chicken ALL THE TIME. My boyfriend however, actually tries new things each time, and his favourite is the hot and spicy chicken vindaloo. The servers are so nice and made us immediately comfortable. Our water would always be refilled, and they were so personable it's hard to find something not to like. The restaurant is large, and nicely decorated but very comfortable. The only drawback is the price, which is slightly higher than most Indian places at about $14 a dish on average. Overall, very good, and well worth the money!

Very Disappointed
Submitted Thursday, April 16, 2009 - 6:16am [Dine in]

Tonight my boyfriend and I went out for dinner here. As soon as we stepped inside, the owner greeted and seated us right away. The room itself was nice, nothing special- maybe a few authentic looking pieces on the wall. We really liked that there were fresh flowers on the table- which is always a good touch. I was a little disappointed with their menu however, as I had chosen a duck entree which was listed on their website, but apparently has been taken off the actual menu for quite some time. We ended up ordering the "Knight's Platter" which consisted of an assortment of various appetizers. It included stuffed perogies and polenta balls (which we both loved), kielbasa kebabs and sausages (which were just okay, nothing special), and the cabbage rolls (which tasted like already chewed up food to me), schnitzel (which tasted like any other breaded cutlet), veggie kebab and cardboard chicken kebabs. It also included house salad and fries which were decent. Honestly however, considering we could have made most of these ourselves, we felt ripped off as this cost us $47! Oh, and we both ordered FLAT sodas for another $2 each. In total, we got jipped $58 including tip.

We're never going back here again, and would NOT suggest this place to anyone. The only reason we even bothered tipping was because of the friendly staff.

Tasty Indian food
Submitted Tuesday, April 14, 2009 - 11:17pm [Dine in]

My girlfriend and I went here for dinner recently, and we really enjoyed it. My girlfriend ordered the butter chicken, which was quite tasty, ad I ordered the chicken tikka, which they covered in masala sauce at my request (gotta have some sauce for dipping naan). My tikka masala was very good as well, but I ordered hot, and it was mild at best. The prices were fair, even with the addition of rice and naan (sold separately) compared to other Indian places we've tried. The restaurant itself is modest in size, but very cozy with nice decor. Service was solid, food was brought out quickly and the staff was very friendly. We plan on going back again for lunch as they appear to have a very good combination of entrees for around $11. Overall, tasty food and enjoyable experience.

Stepho's Greek Taverna1124 Davie St, Vancouver
Great food for a great price
Submitted Tuesday, April 14, 2009 - 11:02pm [Dine in]

My girlfriend and I eat here on a semi-regular basis, and the food is always great. We always order the same damn thing, cause we're exciting like that. But really, how can you go wrong with ordering souvlaki? The portions are huge, especially for the price. One large order for 9.95 is enough for the two of us to share. My only complaint is that they sometimes seem a little stingy with drinks, which is bizarre considering the great deal you get on the entrees. Overall, our favourite place to go for Greek.

Submitted Tuesday, April 7, 2009 - 11:25pm [Dine in]

My girlfriend and I went here for dinner, and we had the BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, fries, coleslaw, and BBQ beans. After having lived in the south, we had high expectations for what bbq should be. The food wasn't bad exactly... it just doesn't hold a candle to real BBQ. If you have ever had authentic BBQ from the American south, you'll see what I mean. Not bad BBQ, just mediocre. Other than that, service is decent (although I can see how some would be turned off by the ordering counter idea), and the food is fairly cheap.
