Good deal for fresh sashimi
Submitted Sunday, February 27, 2011 - 5:29pm [Dine in]

I heard good reviews, especially about the sashimi, so decided to give it a try one evening. It was nice, not quite the unbelievable sashimi I was expecting tho. But it was good quality, really fresh, the servers were efficient and attentive, and it was a good deal. Enjoyable and I’ll be back.

Yu Kee BBQ Kitchen2609 East 49th Avenue, #111, Vancouver
Overpriced
Submitted Wednesday, December 29, 2010 - 9:16pm [Dine in]

A nice neighbourhood Chinese restaurant with the usual bbq pork and duck. The food is good quality, but almost $20 for a full bbq duck?? The people there are the usual efficient but curt staff you’ve come to expect at Chinese places. If you’re looking for a cheap meal, I wouldn’t come here.

Splitz Grill4242 Main Street, Vancouver
good not-too-pricey burgers
Submitted Sunday, October 3, 2010 - 2:32pm [Dine in]

This place is run by people who look like they want to form a punk rock band. But the food comes out quickly and it’s delicious.

I had the basic burgers and fries. It’s not very expensive for the high-quality ingredients they appear to have, actually it’s a lot cheaper than other non-fast food burger places around town. The only thing I wasn’t crazy about was the bun, but it’s ok. I can’t remember the fries, but the burger itself was yum…I will be back.

Prairie Cottage Perogies20771 Langley Bypass, #302B, Langley
delicious homemade food
Submitted Monday, November 30, 2009 - 2:07am [Dine in]

It’s very very far away from Vancouver, and couched between a meat shop and a gourmet kitchen store (that store sells some nice things and has a great staff by the way). It’s got a really old school look to it, like someone’s grandmother’s kitchen table. But it’s all about the food…and it was definitely up to par. Perogies stuffed with potato and cheese, nice cabbage rolls with tomato sauce, and a hearty borscht. It’s so out of the way for me, but if I’m ever in that area again, I will be sure to stop by.

Floata Seafood Restaurant180 Keefer Street, #400, Vancouver
it tastes good to me
Submitted Sunday, November 8, 2009 - 10:04pm [Dine in]

Ok, I’m not too choose-y about my dim sum, I am no dim sum connoisseur. I just love eating it, and unless it is cold or skimpy on ingredients, I will probably not complain. Sure, I will critique a particular dish once in awhile, but generally, it’s all good to me. I like Floata for their variety, a lot of other places have such a small selection and are usually missing some of my favourites. I’m not into the exotic stuff, just oldies but goodies. Love the coconut custard, or different variety of dumplings with greens in them, or a shrimp dumpling with extras…like scallops on top. It’s just nice that they keep it interesting. Some people complain about the quality…as for me, all I know is that it’s incredibly tasty and I leave full and satisfied. Will be back.

Nancy Wonton House5257 Victoria Dr, Vancouver
good deals but might need better quality control
Submitted Sunday, November 8, 2009 - 9:58pm [Dine in]

I liked Nancy’s as a late night snack for awhile, decent portions at a good price, but I noticed this kind of chemical-ammonia smell coming from their noodles or broth all the time. I usually get the wonton noodles in soup, and it was happening regularly, so I ended up trying the same dish at a more expensive place…wow, what a difference. Now I just pay the extra dollar or two for the more expensive place. I feel bad saying this stuff about them, because they have a nice staff and I think they have great deals, but honestly, I don’t know about their quality control. I’ve also had the congee and never noticed anything, but one dish can ruin everything else.

Mui Garden Restaurant5797 Victoria Dr., Vancouver
good chinese fast food
Submitted Saturday, October 10, 2009 - 1:23am [Dine in]

Out of the many many chinese fast food restaurants in the city, I think Mui Garden is one of the better ones. The family comes here fairly regularly, and they like the 'famous' hainanese chicken. This chicken is supposed to be fairly tasteless but it's judged more on the smoothness of the chicken than on flavor. It's not really supposed to come out flavorful, you can dip it in the ginger sauce that comes with it. I like the spicy green beans, and although many cheap chinese restaurants that serve this dish, they do it best. This is a place for an inexpensive, quick meal, and Mui Garden is one of the better restaurants in that category. Will be back.

Pho Tan Vietnamese Restaurant4598 Main Street, Vancouver
nice decor in a pho restaurant
Submitted Friday, July 31, 2009 - 9:47pm [Dine in]

This place has above average décor for a pho restaurant. It is relaxing inside, and it looks like somebody put some thought into it. The food is pretty good, I have no complaints. The pho has a good broth, lots of fresh bean sprouts and the like on the side. Spring rolls and salad rolls have always been tasty. The people working there are friendly. I will be back, it’s nice to go there for lunch and finish with an iced coffee on a hot day.

Tom Yum Thai4010 Hastings, Burnaby
pretty good take out thai
Submitted Wednesday, July 22, 2009 - 11:32pm [Dine in]

Not the best Thai food I've ever had, but for a hole-in-the-wall, it’s pretty good. Sweet and sour soup is delicious, perfect amount of heat. Loved it. I always get the red seafood curry, beautiful coconut taste to it. Everything is thoroughly enjoyable, reasonable prices, they always get my order right. No complaints. I never eat in, the whole place is a kind of strange color and just gives off a weird ambience. But the food is always good, I just pick it up and leave. For take out thai, this is a recommended place.

Pho Hoa2257 Kingsway, Vancouver
the food is ok for late night, but once in a while...
Submitted Saturday, April 11, 2009 - 2:19am [Dine in]

I come here because it is open 24 hours, and when I get a late night craving, I think it is a healthier alternative to McDonald's or Wendy's. Overall, there food is decent, and acceptable for the convenience. The servers are always nice and get the orders right. But I made the mistake of ordering the iced coffee one night, and it was disgusting. Rather than using condensed milk, they just dumped coffee over a lump of sugar at the bottom of the cup. I know it is a chain restaurant so no one is that invested in the place there, but I don't know how they could even serve that to anyone. Won't be going back for the coffee, but it is still the only half-decent place around that's open late...

Moderne Burger2507 West Broadway St., Vancouver
fresh ingredients, but kind of tasteless
Submitted Saturday, April 4, 2009 - 1:21am [Dine in]

This is a fun place to visit. The burger was juicy, seemed like they used really good ingredients, but I guess because they don't season it, it just lacked taste even with the bacon and the cheese on top. I kept on trying to add salt to it, but it's kind of irritating to tip the burger and sprinkle salt every few bites. I did refuse their special sauce though, so maybe that adds a lot of flavor to it. The fries were definitely soggy. Overall, a good, well-made burger, but I don't think I can deal with the un-seasoned patty.

Transylvania Flavour2120 West Broadway, Vancouver
delicious cabbage rolls
Submitted Saturday, April 4, 2009 - 1:05am [Dine in]

We came for the perogies, but were wow-ed by the cabbage rolls. Perogies were a different style than we were used to, but still good. The cabbage rolls were excellent though, really well done.
We also had some grilled platters, it was all good, a little on the pricey side but not too bad. The place is elegant and warm.
The people running it are great, very accommodating and helpful, and they really care about the quality of their food. We were a little un-adventurous about a couple of the sauces, and they offered to make us a different sauce right on the spot, which turned out to be delicous. Will definitely make a trip back.

Bon Cafe4909 Main Street, Vancouver
great viet food without msg
Submitted Saturday, March 14, 2009 - 3:18am [Dine in]

This little place is great for take-out. I think it is one of the healthiest Vietnamese restaurants I've been to. I like it because I don't get that sick msg-feeling afterwards, but all the dishes are still pretty tasty. They have an addictive hot and sour seafood soup. Their pho soup base is non-greasy. They also have a good selection of bubble tea, and they offer them with either powder or fresh fruit. The owners are friendly and accommodating, really nice people. It's very good value, and one of the healthier choices.

Burgers Etc. BBQ House4091 Hastings St., Burnaby
Cannot complain about a well-made burger.
Submitted Tuesday, March 10, 2009 - 3:35am [Dine in]

It’s not the best burger I’ve ever had, but compared to the burgers at Earl’s for $18 that can be really salty and just overpriced, I’m happy with the ones here. It can get pricey ($12-13) when you start adding on all the different toppings, but for those who love a good burger, it’s worth it. The sides are alright, nothing great. The staff there always get my order right, so I have no complaints. Will be coming back regularly.

Pho Hong6348 Fraser St., Vancouver
This place can get pretty packed
Submitted Friday, February 20, 2009 - 3:40am [Dine in]

It doesn’t look like much, but this place is always fairly busy, consistent flow of customers. The food is consistently good. Fresh herbs and lime wedges, all the necessary sauces, there’s nothing stand out about this place, just good quality food. Pho hits the spot every time, lemongrass pork is tasty. Spring rolls are outstanding, one of the best I’ve had. The shrimp and beef tend to be overcooked, although the beef has gotten better the last few times around. Service and décor could use some freshening up, but I come back for the good deals on food.

Pittsburg4500 Kingsway, #1687, Burnaby
Pretty typical
Submitted Wednesday, February 18, 2009 - 8:04pm [Dine in]

So this is an unfortunately named restaurant. Food is what you’d expect in these kind of cafes. I like their soups, they had a borscht that was tasty. The rest of the food is typical, underwhelming at best. Service is decent, efficient. Underground parking is a bit of a guessing game sometimes. Probably won't be back if I can help it, but it's open late which is nice.

The décor is pretty and it has a fireplace
Submitted Wednesday, February 18, 2009 - 7:57pm [Dine in]

Not my favourite place to come for a meal, but the family likes it. This one is in a newly developed area, and the restaurant is really upscale and nice. A fireplace makes it cozy for the winter. There’s a few comforting meals on the menu, like the beef dipper and chicken pie. Servers are young and friendly. The food is what you'd expect from White Spot, but the decor is very modern.

the crust – you either get it or you don’t.
Submitted Sunday, February 8, 2009 - 3:25am [Dine in]

It's all about the crust. It’s an amazing thin crust, really superior to any of those pizza chains. But if you don’t like it, then you won’t be happy that you just paid $30 for a not-that-big pizza. But if you love the crust, then it’s worth it. The toppings are pretty good, they don’t skimp out. It’s an expensive pizza, but I’ll still be coming back.

Incredibly Honest service
Submitted Friday, February 6, 2009 - 5:16am [Dine in]

Visited this restaurant a few times now, as it is on my side of town. Chicken wings are tasty, lots of crunch and spice. The chicken hot pot is very delicious. Honey garlic spareribs were flavourful. And for those like it...the plain congee is really well made, with a nice thick broth.
Service is surprisingly good, honest servers. We wanted to try some dumplings, but they said it was from frozen, and recommended we get a different dish instead. Really attentive, helpful servers – a rarity in Chinese restaurants. Will be coming back.

Their subs are good but they run out quick.
Submitted Friday, February 6, 2009 - 5:13am [Dine in]

I eat the subs here on recommendations of others, and they are always packed with lots of great filling. But they sure run out quickly, aren’t they prepared after all these years to order more for the demand? Do they order less to run out early in the day on purpose? Spring rolls are also tasty. Service is attentive and efficient, but understandably rushed. Just wish they would buy some more bread.
