Eatery, The3431 W Broadway, Vancouver
Funky place but bad Jap food and ok service
Submitted Thursday, May 7, 2009 - 12:04am [Dine in]

If you're looking to have really good Jap sushi, I would recommend that you go to Tomoya Sushi in Burnaby, near Kingsway and Nelson, or Samurai Sushi (cheap and BIG) on Cambie, across Gap at Oakridge.

This place was really PRETTY and FUNKY. However, if you're there to EAT, then this is not your place to go...The sushi rice was WARM (big no-no), and it was way too soft and even MUSHY - obviously made by non-Asians.

Not as awesome as reviews indicated here
Submitted Thursday, May 7, 2009 - 12:00am [Dine in]

I had great expectations after reading all the reviews here. When I went to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, I was disappointed. The free plate of chips was a VERY small plate. Refills cost extra. The plates were about 10 per dish. The food was ok but definitely did not deserve a WOW. What was great was the ambiance. It was definitely very Mexico. Even the waitresses were dressed up in traditional costumes. So if you're in it for the atmosphere, this is a great place to go. I tried the rice and cinnamon drink. It was very unique and fun. I'd recommend it. It's $2.50 and is basically like soya milk sweetened + cinnamon. Another thing that was unique was the multiple salsa to choose from. I think there were about 8 different sauces. They were kind of watery and lacking ingredients. However, the variety was refreshing. All in all, our bill for 2 came to $25. Not bad, but not great either, considering we only had that drink and 2 plates.

We had the Sharpne (not that great) and the Aztec (YUM). I'd recommend that you go with the soft tortilla. Also yummy.

Naam, The2724 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Yummy and Healthy
Submitted Wednesday, May 6, 2009 - 11:54pm [Dine in]

I've been to Naam at least 3 times. The food is super delicious for Vegetarian. Very healthy. They have great salads and so many varieties! The service is great. However, if you're hungry, you may want to go somewhere else because typically you have to wait 20mins at the door. Once you're seated, you have to wait another half an hour or more before the food arrives. This place is ALWAYS packed and is definitely worth the wait. Again, just don't be too hungry when you arrive and anticipate that you'll have a long wait time.

Almost everything on the menu is delicious. They have different foods for breakfast and lunch. I don't know if this place is good for dinner but definitely awesome for brunch and breakfast! Healthy and hearty!

Special Sandwich is BEST
Submitted Thursday, February 21, 2008 - 9:06pm [Dine in]

Advisable to pre-order so you don't have to wait. They're known for their special sandwiches. That's the only thing I order. Cheap and very YUMMY! Highly recommend this place. Also advisable to call as soon as it opens (10am) b/c these sandwiches sell out real quick!

Excellent Quality Food
Submitted Thursday, February 21, 2008 - 8:51pm [Dine in]

Tucked away in a residential neighbourhood, Parkside can be easily missed even tho it's situated in downtown core. Food was the best I've ever had for Dine Out. Exquist quality. Even the starter free bread was excellent - freshly baked, tender, slightly elasticky. Great prelude to the fine food that was to come. Everything on the menu (all my friends tried different dishes) was delicious! Highly recommend this place. The not so cheap price is well worth the treat!

Charming Place but Crappy Food
Submitted Thursday, February 21, 2008 - 8:45pm [Dine in]

This place is known for their Crepes. Mine came out soggy and gross. I had the Indonesian crepe (thought I'd try something different and exotic - but what a mistake!) The water from the pineapple killed it. My bf had the spinach bene - which tasted just average. Price was average - I wouldn't say it's cheap - $11-14. I won't ever go back. Was really disappointed after seeing that most reviewers had such great things to say. If you want crepe food, I'd go to Gypsy Rose (cheap for its excellent quality) or De Dutch (quality and great service).

Great Price Great Food
Submitted Thursday, February 21, 2008 - 8:40pm [Dine in]

It's easy to bypass this place. I've been on 4th Ave many times but this place always escape my eyes.

Went there for brunch. Largely serves crepe style food plus sandwiches. It was really yummy and cheap. Decent portion too! It's comparable to De Dutch but less expensive b/c the place is not so fancy. You order and pay at the counter and they bring the food to you. I'd definitely visit this place again!
