Thomas Haas Chocolates & Patisserie998 Harbourside, #128, North Vancouver
Delicious dessert, definitely worth the drive!
Submitted Friday, September 3, 2010 - 8:31am [Dine in]

My friend and I decided to come and indulge ourselves at Thomas Haas after doing the Grouse Grind on the weekend. It was located by the water, kind of in an industrial area. It was a little hard to find at first, but we were able to locate it.
It was a hot day, so I decided to go with an iced latte and a cassis chocolate mousse dessert. My friend went with an americano and their passionfruit tart with blueberries. I had such a hard time deciding which dessert to try because everything just looked so delicious and tempting.
The iced latte was cold and quite strong, just to my liking. It was a real treat to my throat on such a hot day. The mousse cake was a delight to look it, shaped like a dome and decorated with little chocolate squares on the side and on top. It was very refreshing, and I enjoyed every bite.
I also got to try my friend's passionfruit tart with blueberries on top. Very, very nice, surprisingly light and we both loved the shortbread crust.
The dessert was a little small compare to the price, but definitely worth every penny and would go back to try more!!

Good place for donair.
Submitted Friday, September 3, 2010 - 8:16am [Dine in]

Decided to go there one night for a quick bite to eat. Been wanting to try this place for a while since I pass by it almost everyday on my way to work.
My friend and I both decided to go with their chicken donair, which took a little longer than expected to come, but I guess that was because they were doing the french fries to order. The fries were nice and crispy, actually one of the better ones I've had in a long time. The chicken in the donair was a little dry, but it was alright since there was quite a bit of sauce in the donair.
Overall experience, pretty good, not the best donair I've had, but would go back there for the fries for sure! LOL!

It was alright.
Submitted Friday, September 3, 2010 - 8:10am [Dine in]

After reading all the rave reviews about this place, we've decided to go there for the $0.25 wings night. We were there at around 5pm but it was already quite busy, so we seated ourselves down right away. They haave a restaurant area, so we brought our kids along with us, and we were actually quite surprised at the number of kids that were there.
Anyway, the service was a little slow, it took a while for the waitress to come around to take our drinks order. We ordered the wings right away. We tried the teriyaki, thai, honey garlic and honey mustard.
Our wings came quite quickly, which was great because we were all pretty hungry. The size of the wings was quite small, but it was alright for $0.25. Very saucy, and we liked all the ones we've ordered except for the teriyaki, there was just too much soy sauce and not enough sweetness in the sauce.
We went ahead and put in our second order of wings, and this time it took a very long time, much too long. I think we must have waited about 40 minutes for the second batch of wings, we were about to cancel it when our waitress finally brought the plate to our table.
We ordered more honey garlic and decided to try the salt and pepper. We really liked the S&P ones, they were nice and crispy and seasoned with just the right amount of salt and pepper, though I think the peppercorns could have ground a little finer because they just didn't quite stick to the wings.
Overall experience, pretty good, except for the slow service. Would go back again.

Too bland or too salty...
Submitted Tuesday, August 17, 2010 - 4:31pm [Dine in]

Went there last night with my husband for their 2 for 1 appys. We got 2 orders of wings, 4 different flavours - Poco (soy, s&p), honey garlic, thai and greek. We didn't have to wait too long for our wings to come, which was great, because we were both very hungry by then. We started with the honey garlic wings, and it was alright, too little honey in my opinion. Then we went on to the Greek, which was a disappointment, because all they did was sprinkle some generic greek spice on top of their deep-fried wings. My husband did say they tasted better with a little bit of salt. Then we tried the Thai, which was by far the best tasting wings so far. I wonder if they just used the sauce from the jar or whether they made it from scratch. Didn't matter too much, those Thai wings were good! Then we tried the Poco wings last, and boy were they salty!! My husband has a high tolerance for salt, and even he said they were too salty for him.
We wanted to try 2 more flavours and the torpedo prawns at first, but after trying the wings that we had ordered, i think we had quite enough.
Overall, it was alright...

Kingsway Sushi3665 Kingsway, #110, Vancouver
Good service, decent food but limited AYCE menu.
Submitted Monday, August 9, 2010 - 4:23pm [Dine in]

We were originally going to go to Top Gun Sushi in New Westminister for dinner, but was shocked to find out that they went out of business, so we decided to go to another Japanese restaurant in their same chain. We were a large group, so we made a reservation in advance. We were seated prompted when we got there, got our tea and everything right away. Pretty decent service for an AYCE place.
The food came pretty quickly, and our orders were correct all the time. The food was decent, nothing outstanding, but I was pretty disappointed to see that they only have BBQ salmon cheek on their lunch menu. I miss the BBQ black cod and the grill salmon head over at Top Gun Sushi. Although they didn't have too much to choose from, they do have some pretty interesting and creative sushi creations.
Overall, not too bad.

Decent food, but TERRIBLE service!
Submitted Monday, August 9, 2010 - 3:30pm [Dine in]

We've been coming to this restaurant for quite a few years. The quality of the food is pretty solid and consistant. However, the one thing that is keeping us from going there more often than we really have to is their service. Actually, there really isn't much service to speak of. Their servers are rude, service is slow, and they will choose to ignore you if they like when you try to flag them down.
We went there for dinner with my inlaws. We made a reservation for 7:30, and had to wait 20 mins for them to finally finish cleaning the table that's been sitting empty for at least that long. It was a busy night, and with 5 adults and 2 kids waiting for our table by the door while there were people coming in and out of the restaurant, waiting 20 minutes was a long time!
We were finally seated, all 7 of us, in a corner table where we could barely fit ourselves in. We quickly chose what we wanted and it took us nearly 10 mins to flag the lady down to take our order. The food came quite quickly, which was a good thing.
As we were having our dinner, we noticed that the server was coming by quite often to collect the dirty dishes, which should be a good sign, right? WRONG! Not only were they collecting the dishes, they were asking if we were done our dinner and ready for our bill, WHILE we were still having our dinner!! We weren't even there for an hour!
I guess they must have booked our table for 8:30, because after they came by to ask a few times, they actually sent a set of people to stand by our table!! We all thought that was extremely rude, and we were just disgusted by their poor service we decided to leave the reminder of our dinner, paid our bill and left.
Definitely will NOT be back!!!

Must try their chicken donair!
Submitted Monday, July 26, 2010 - 3:14pm [Dine in]

This is my go-to place for donair. I've tried their lamb and chicken donair. They were both really good, but the chicken, I must say, had to be one of the best I've tasted. The chicken was nice and moist and was seasoned perfectly.
Service is excellent, definitely not something I would expect from a grab-n-go donair place, but that's what makes this place my favourite!

Should have try this place years ago!!
Submitted Wednesday, July 14, 2010 - 2:39pm [Dine in]

This restaurant has been around forever, and I have no idea why it took me so long to try this place. Should have come here years ago, because the food is DELICIOUS!!
My mom and I went there for lunch and we ordered the ostrich skewers, which were cooked to perfection!!! Meat was juicy and tender, and perfectly paired with the yummy peanut sauce. Absolutely to die for!!
We also ordered the lamb curry from their fusion menu and the traditional pad thai. The lamb curry was wonderfully done. Lamb done to perfection and the curry was just the right taste and consistancy...though it might have been nicer if it was a little spicier. The pad thai was very good as well, but we were so full from the skewers and the lamb curry (we also ordered rice to finish up all the curry sauce) that we didn't get to eat too much of the pad thai.
Service was friendly and not pushy at all. This will become my go-to place for Thai food in Richmond!!

Good lamb chops, well-seasoned rice.
Submitted Wednesday, July 14, 2010 - 1:56pm [Dine in]

Saw the great reviews for this place on this website, so my husband and I decided to give it a try with our Entertainment Book coupon. It was a little hard to find, and you would miss it if you were paying attention because it's tucked kind of at the back on the far side of Save-On-Foods.
Love the decor on the inside, very unique, kind of like being in Europe.
I ordered the lamp chops and my husband ordered the steak, and we had the calamari appy to share. The calamari was quite fishy, I could smell it the moment it was brought to the table. The calamari was a little soggy and very greasy, and too salty. It was alright, but we wouldn't order it again. However, everything else was quite nice, especially the pita bread - crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
My order of lamb chops was quite nicely done, slightly on the salty side, but the meat was very moist. The green beans was a little overdone, but that was compensated by the perfectly done rice. Probably the best rice I've had at a Greek restaurant!
Great price (even without the coupon), and great food. Would definitely come back again, but perhaps just stay away from the calamari.

Pearl Castle4380 No. 3 Road, #1380, Richmond
Waaaaay too sweet!
Submitted Thursday, June 17, 2010 - 2:25pm [Dine in]

Been going to the other Pearl Castle for many years, so my friends decided to give this location a try. The decor is modern and colourful, but nothing to really boast about. The service was alright, we didn't except too much judging from our past experience with other Peark Castle locations anyway. Although I must say that the two Richmond locations definitely have much better service than the one in Port Coquitlam.
I ordered the passion fruit green tea, and found it waaaaay too sweet. It was like drinking raw syrup from the container, I was only able to finish about half before I finally gave up. I normally don't like to waste food, especially when I'm paying for it, but it was just way too sweet for me to even take another sip.
I think we're just going to stick with the old Pearl Castle location on Sexsmith.

Fantastic dessert, but should have left the kangaroo in Aussie.
Submitted Thursday, June 17, 2010 - 2:03pm [Dine in]

My husband and I came here for our wedding anniversary dinner. It was during the week, so we were quite surprised when we saw that the dining room was nearly full, and it looked like it had a large function booked as well. Good thing we had a reservation.
The first thing we noticed was the decor on the inside of the restuarant. It has just a large variety of everything hanging from their walls. It was nice...quite unique. And they also use red light bulbs in the room that we were in. It took our eyes a little bit of time to adjust to the red glow, and we both found the lighting a little dim.
We ordered the escargo as our appy to share. It came in a nice rectangular dish. The presentation was great, but we both agreed that it needed a little more seasoning as it was a little bland. Then the long wait for our entrees began...we must have waited at least 45 mins for our entrees, which we were not too impressed about the wait time.
My husband ordered the rib eye, which was cooked to perfection. I was little a little adventurous, so I went for the kangaroo loin. I wanted medium rare, but even under the dim light, I could see it was definitely cooked to medium. It was tough and chewy. I wasn't sure if that's what kangaroo was supposed to taste like or if it was because it was overcooked. Nonetheless, the veggies was cooked very nicely and perfectly seasoned (except for one of the asparagus, which could be trimmed by another inch at the end), and my favourite was the cheesy potato mash.
We then finished our dinner with their lemon and vanilla panna cotta, which was served in one of those long dish they use to serve olives in. The presentation was very unique, we liked it. It tasted rich and creamy, just like a panna cotta should be.
We were quite happy with our experience, but unless they have a new menu, we likely won't be back anytime soon.

Yummy food....but slightly greasy.
Submitted Wednesday, June 16, 2010 - 9:29am [Dine in]

Came here with some friends for lunch on the weekend. Haven't been here for a long time to decided to come and give it another try. Last time we came was a few years ago and the food was good, so we were hopefully that their standards haven't dropped since then. We were not disappointed.
The two fried noodle dishes we ordered were quite yummy, but they were quite greasy and my friend complained that there just were too much veggies and not much meat and noodles. All the dishes were nicely flavoured. The steamed dumplings we were hot and freshly made, and very juicy when we bit into them, just the way they should be.
Not much ambiance to speak of, the restuarant was kind of dark even during the day. They have their tables set up in kind of an odd way as well, just seem like they tried to squeeze in too many tables in the small space that they have.
Service was alright, if you shout loud enough, the waitress will hear you and come over to your table. Otherwise you'll just have to wait and wait and wait....

Disappointed.
Submitted Wednesday, June 16, 2010 - 9:22am [Dine in]

Been wanting to come and try this place since they opened their doors a while back. Finally decided to come here with my family for dinner last week. Cute little restaurant. We were seated right away. Our waitress was friendly and service was good, and our water glasses were refilled without us having to ask. When I go to a Greek restaurant, I always order their lamb chops, and this time was no exception. I found that their lamb chops were overseasoned (waaaay too salty) and they were overcooked, so a little tough to chew, and the rice that came with the dish was a little too oily. My husband ordered their salmon skewers, and although the fish was cooked nicely, it, too, was overseasoned and much too salty. I guess it might just be the style of the chef there?? Prices were a little on the expensive size as well, so we probably won't be back after such a disappointing experience.

Pretty good HK-style cafe.
Submitted Wednesday, June 16, 2010 - 8:58am [Dine in]

This is probably one of the better HK-style cafes in Coquitlam. The food always hold up to standard. Service is a little slow or even "absent" at times, especially during busy times, but the food keeps us coming back for more. This place is always packed with people during lunch time on the weekends, so prepare for a bit of a wait. We've tried a number of dishes there before (various fried rice and noodles, curry, Portuguese chicken and more) and they were all pretty good for HK-style cafe food. The portion size is slightly smaller compare to other HK-style cafes in Coquitlam, but we found it just the right size for us. This is definitely my go-to place when I need my HK-style cafe food fix.

Food was ok if you don't mind the grease.
Submitted Wednesday, June 16, 2010 - 8:46am [Dine in]

Came here with a bunch of friends on the weekend, and we were surprised at how empty the restaurant was. We all ordered the afternoon tea specials with drinks. It took the food a little while to arrive, but that was ok, because my friends and I were chatting anyway. They brought my friends' drinks to them, but they somehow forgot about my drink or didn't put it down on the order. It took my drink a long time to arrive, and it finally came when I was almost done my food. We all ordered some fried noodles and fried rice, and my husband ordered baked pork chop on rice. The flavour of the fried rice and noodles were ok, except we all found them really greasy. All our plates had a thick layer of grease at the bottom after we were done. The baked pork chop my husband ordered was thickly battered and was tough to chew. At least everything was cheap, but probably would not be back anytime soon.

Came here once with my friend for dinner. The inside was a little dark and dingy and it was quite empty, so we were a little hesitant, but we decided to give it a try anyway. We both ordered the chicken noodle soup. The chicken was tough and chewy, tasted like what I would find at the bottom of my stock pot. The soup was alright...but I have definitely had better Vietnamese noodle soup at other places. Not much service to speak of, because the people there just kind of disappeared after they brought us our food. Probably wouldn't come back given that there are so many other choices out there.

That's one giant roti!!
Submitted Wednesday, June 16, 2010 - 8:18am [Dine in]

I've heard rave reviews about this place, so yesterday I finally decide to come and try it for myself. Price-wise, I think it is a little one the expensive side, but it was worth it. I order the mild goat roti, and it was HUGE! it was the side of my entire hand and it was about an inch and a half thick. The goat was nice and tender, very flavourful, though I find that the potatoes could use a little bit more seasoning though. I read some previous reviews about the spiciness of the food, so I ordered the mild. I found the it to be a little too mild for my taste, and I don't usually eat spicy food, so next time I would definitely go for the medium for that extra little kick in the roti. Good food, friendly service, would definitely be back!

Been coming here for a while. Good selection on their menu. Good food and good value for the money, especially when you order their combos.

Great Dine-Out Vancouver experience, but food slightly over-seasoned.
Submitted Thursday, April 29, 2010 - 10:43am [Dine in]

Went there last night with my friend for Dine Out Vancouver. The ambiance was great, you have to enter through a set of curtains into a courtyard before you go into the main dining area, which I though was quite unique.
Both my friend and I decided on the sockeye salmon for our entree, he had the carpacio appy while I ordered the prosciutto wrapped scallop. The presentation was great for the appy and the entree, but I found both to be slightly over-seasoned, a little too salty for my taste. I really liked the bed of fried risotto, the texture was a nice contrast to the scallop. The salmon was cooked to perfection, though slightly over-seasoned, it had a nice crispy skin on the outside, and medium rare on the inside.
It was a good experience, a place to go for Dine-Out for sure!
