Indian Flavours1256 Robson St, Vancouver
Solid, reliable, but not super special
Submitted Monday, October 27, 2008 - 12:06pm [Dine in]

Yes, it seems like a family run place where the kids have grown up and taken over and mom and dad relax at home. There is no uniform, regular clothes. And while the service is a bit hands off-ish, I appreciate that because I can't stand servers that hover over you.

The decor is a little confusing because it does look a little on the formal side from the outside, but it is definitley casualish. Typical indian style I would say.

The food was good, but at $17 for the average sized bowl of butter chicken, a small plate of rice (shared between 2 people) some pampadon (sp?) and 1 naan bread, seems a little pricey to me, although I hardly eat on robson street for that reason so I would disregard my snap on the price.

Pad Thai Cuisine132 E. Broadway, Vancouver
If value is what you want, then you'll get it here.

Portions are huge. The pad thai came on the plate and the amount of noodles spanned a good 12 inches across in length and 6 inches in width and 2 inches in height. I thought that it was meant for two people. For $8.95 there was a very generous portion of shrimp in the pad thai. It seemed for awhile that every spear of the fork seemed to snag a piece of shrimp. The shrimp was definitley fresh, plump and cooked well. Not rubbery or 'dehydrated'. I'm not a thai food expert, but I've had pad thai at Wild Rice in Gastown, and I couldn't tell much of a difference between the two. "Ketchupy?" Not that I could tell.

Usually I have to go to 'all you can eat' types of deals to feel full and this place had me stuffed, and no I'm not overweight. I'm 5'8" and 150lbs. I have a fast metabolism. Very rarely am I stuffed. Here I was.

The lady is polite, but busy, it took her awhile to get me seated, she was answering the phones. Seems like take out is a big thing.

It wasn't busy when I went in. The ambience is on the lacking side, with lots of cold hard surfaces, but the service is earnest and honest. It's a restaurant where a family works it and where the restaurant supports the family. I enjoy this kind of restaurant, much more than the chain restaurants. I feel that my business helps to support a family instead of some kids makeup and cellphone expenses.

An honest, earnest restaurant.
