Those chickens should get their wings back
Submitted Thursday, March 15, 2012 - 2:36pm [Dine in]

I went for the 20 cent wings thinking they would be a deal similar to the 20 cent wings at The Point Pub in Port Moody. I was disappointed. Two of us went in, both must order a drink if eating wings, wings are small and over cooked, the refill on my $3 coke actually costs more money!!, the sauce is served on the side. We order 40 wings plus a veggie plate, at the end I was still hungry. At The Point Pub we order 3 dozen plus a salad, we can hardly finish it.

The salt and pepper wings came out with a small tub of, you guessed it, salt and pepper. Think about it, the wings are dry so how would the salt and pepper stick to them? Come on, could you try just a little harder?? There's a salt and pepper shaker on the table, what's the difference? At The Point the salt and pepper is part of the coating on the wing. Brilliant!!

Don't go here for the wings.

Awesome Food
Submitted Thursday, January 27, 2011 - 10:31pm [Dine in]

I loved the food from this place. The food was alive with spices at just the right blend. Didn't burn my mouth and didn't leave me thirsty afterwards because of too much salt, a problem most other restaurants have. Not too much sauce, the meat was not dry but tender and moist. Very very good.

Well done Lamb dishes
Submitted Wednesday, July 15, 2009 - 11:11pm [Dine in]

Went here twice now, loved the lamb dishes. Not too salty, juicy meat, pleasant spices on the whole dish, fair sized portions. Overall very nice Greek food. I recommend trying this place out for Greek food. The decor is ok, don't remember the music that was playing. The hostess is a very friendly lady, made us feel comfortable. Our waitress though seemed a little bored with her job, or just not interested. Forgot our wine order, but later apologized for that. I wasn't too put off by it all.

Awesome Bakery Goodies
Submitted Sunday, April 12, 2009 - 11:56am [Dine in]

I love this place, never get tired of it. They have a large selection of bite sized baked pieces. My first introduction to Iranian style baking was Baklava, not even authentically made but more like manufactured. I didn't really like it that much. My second introduction was this place and was expecting lots of different types of this sticky pastry. Out of the 80 or so different types only two were the sticky ones. The rest were biscuits, cakes, cookies, rolls, creampuffs, etc. I always get a box of one of each til the box is full. You should defintely give this place a try.

All Thai'd Up Restaurant2636 Kingsway Ave., Port Coquitlam
Authentic Thai Food
Submitted Sunday, August 10, 2008 - 12:04pm [Dine in]

Walked to the restaurant on a summer evening. Food was delicious and authentically prepared. I believe two sisters originally from Thailand are owner operators of the restaurant, please confirm for yourself I'm not 100% on that. We had a fish cake appetizer a salad and a main course meal. The meals use a lot of fresh vegies which I like but found I had to order an extra plate of rice to round out the meal. I found the total bill a little pricey in the end.

Aldo's Pasta Bar441 Columbia St, New Westminster
Good Food
Submitted Saturday, March 8, 2008 - 11:19am [Dine in]

I loved the pasta sauce at this place. It was zesty and full bodied, lots of flavour. Ample amount was served so some was left for bread dipping at the end. The Veal dish was tender and had a unique flavourable marsala sauce. The roasted chicken was tender and a large serving, half a chicken, could hardly eat it all. The sauce was nice, don't remember the name. I would recommend giving this place a try.

Can I have some tomatoes in my tomatoe sauce please
Submitted Saturday, March 8, 2008 - 11:08am [Dine in]

A very disappointing experience. Our server was nice but forgot our drink order and then since we waited long for our food maybe something happened there too? The food was very disappointing for flavor. I ordered a tomatoe sauce and what came out appeared more like pan drippings from frying the sausages that were also in my plate. Overall the dishes were bland, the price was high for this caliber of food. I would not recommend going here for Italian food.

Good Mexican food
Submitted Sunday, February 24, 2008 - 10:47pm [Dine in]

I find the food at this place is lighter than most Mexican food I've tried. The tortillas and Burritos don't get soggy with sauce as they sit in your plate and there's a bit more vegy content than other places. This is a nice change. First visit was on an Entertainment coupon and I've been back regularly, prices are good, portions are good.
Highly recommend giving this a try.

nice place just don't eat there
Submitted Sunday, January 27, 2008 - 5:06pm [Dine in]

The atmosphere is nice, there was an entertainer playing guitar and singing in the lounge. This was enjoyable. The food though was less than what I expected, even if the prices were lower I still wouldn't recommend this food. The place has a feel like Earls or Cactus Club but the food is much less quality than either of those two. I would highly suggest giving this place a skip for dinner and going to one of these others unless you just want to sit in the lounge to enjoy a drink with some entertainment.

Hermitage1025 Robson Street, #115, Vancouver
First Time French
Submitted Sunday, January 20, 2008 - 11:40pm [Dine in]

Decided to go to dinner at the Hermitage on an Entertainment coupon on a Sunday evening. We were greated by a friendly waiter at the door and shown to a booth seat. We had been shopping all afternoon and I apreciated the soft and comfotable seat. There were many other tables with regular wooden seats.

We weren't really hungy so my wife and I skipped the appetizer and went straight to the main course. My wife had the pheasant and I the veal strip. I added a glass of red wine even though I was a little surprised at the price of $12, but it was a good tasting wine and I was satisfied. I should have asked the waiter to recommend something but did not.

My wife and I both thought the food was excellent, the sauce was perfectly fit to the taste of the meats on each plate and the portions were just right. We were so impressed with the main course we decided to have desert even though we started off not feeling that hungry. My wife had a lava cake (lots of chocolat) and I some sort of icecream cake with prailene flavour. Again it was awesome.

Give this place a try, I've certainly paid as much or more at other restaurants in Vancouver and been really let down.

Oh, by the way there was plenty of bread. I don't know why these other people had so much trouble with that.
