A Fun Place for the Family
Submitted Monday, April 7, 2008 - 3:27pm [Dine in]

It is a fun place for the family is all it is. I wouldn't necessarily say you could go too delicious with a big black stone-fryer. However, I don't in the least bit understand why people trash the service. You order your drinks, they come some short time later, then you go up to fry your food! I could take it or leave it.

Quality Gone Downhill
Submitted Monday, April 7, 2008 - 3:21pm [Dine in]

I have been to Goldilocks many times. The food is mediocre ever since they began to package it in those little black cartons. The kare-kare and adobo and other such dishes are wet, damp, and jellied. Although I do not know of a place to get better pastries and ube cakes, (believe me they are good) the entrees themselves i would stay away from.

The Last Honest British Pub in the Area
Submitted Thursday, April 3, 2008 - 5:27pm [Dine in]

Having been to Britain, and being British myself, this is as close as it gets to a true British Pub. When dining, especially in the evening hours, one feels like if they were to step outside, they would be in some small town in England. The Prime Rib is amazing, although the Yorkshire Pudding I could have done without. It was full of air and slightly burned on the outside. Obviously the servers are not going to take lots of time to pamper you, as they have lots of customers to deal with, and it does slightly add to the idea of a British Pub! The bread pudding is excellent, and the custard topping is a great idea. Some of the menu items are slightly straying from the British idea, but nonetheless it is an excellent place. Although in all my times there I have never seen the special rotate, it is alright because the special is an amazing choice. Unfortunately, I don't believe the Kerrisdale community is as accepting of places such as this, I still believe that for anyone wanting to get a taste of England, this is the place to go.

White Spot1476 Kingsway, Vancouver
Still My Favorite Burger Joint
Submitted Thursday, April 3, 2008 - 5:08pm [Dine in]

Although White Spot has spiced up it's menu with it's faux-gourmet dishes designed by Feenie and what not, it's Burgers are still the thing to order. There is no time that I wouldn't accept a White Spot Burger if offered to me. The menu has been clouded with many dishes that do not speak for the quality of it's classic food, that is, the burger itself. The burgers are simple, yet delicious. They incorporate excellent buns, excellent patties, excellent toppings, and of course, Whit Spot's signature Triple O's sauce. Although I have been disappointed with their service in the past, it is nothing to make me stay away. My friend (who is a lacto-vegeterian) and I once went to White Spot and I must say I was disappointed with their vegetarian options. My friend ended up being forced to order a plain rice bowl with a meager topping of vegetables. Not being a vegetarian myself, this is of little concern, so I continue to return to this place with frequent regularity. If you go to White Spot, forget the Chicken Pot Pie and Pasta and Pizza, for goodness sakes order a burger!

Amazing!
Submitted Thursday, April 3, 2008 - 12:45pm [Dine in]

Dining at Ashiana is an experience in heaven! The food is outstanding, and although the service is not divine, it is not terrible either. It is hard to believe that such a place could be almost empty on a Saturday Night at 6:00. The cheese pakoras are elegantly flavored with an exotic blend of spices, as to make them perfect in every way. The fish makhni is an excellent choice for the person eager to sample curry, but on the mild and cautious side. The cauliflower in the gobi pratha is meager, but nonetheless it is the best I have tried. The portions are surprisingly liberal, as the size of the metal serving bowls are quite small in diameter. The food is quite saucy, as is most indian cuisine however, and i recommend ordering some naan or other such related dish. When the bill comes the price is steep, but when you reach your finger out and try that last bit of sauce stuck to the tablecloth, you are willing to pay the bill, and happily do so. Overall, Ashiana is a culinary masterpiece.

Food Alright, everything else Terrible!
Submitted Thursday, April 3, 2008 - 12:35pm [Dine in]

I found my dining experience at On Lok interesting at best! There are bits of congealed food stuck to the floor, and there are staff mopping the floor right at your feet (last I checked this is supposed to be done during closed hours!). You feel like the staff are about to pull out knives and hurl them at you, and that every word they utter is one of vile contempt towards the non-asian customer. Any attempt to ask one of the staff what one of the items on the poorly translated menu is warrants a stream of chinese! (It's hard to believe they are not swear words considering the tone of voice) all though I have the utmost respect for Chinese dining, this place is a swing and a miss. I guess they don't model themselves after the nice dim-sum places downtown! I found the food here extremely plentiful and cheap, yet surprisingly greasy. The wonton soup is delicous, and the wontons themselves are quit succulent, and the fried rice might as well be free considering the great price. But, the poor ambience outweighs the benefit, and unless you enjoy being subjected mean staff most probably hurling insults at you from behind your back, stay away from this place.

Alright, But not worth the wait
Submitted Thursday, April 3, 2008 - 12:23pm [Dine in]

I found the food here flavorful and well-plated. The sushi was soft and the rice was moist and soft, and not in the bland kind of way. However, the servers and staff act like the Soup-Nazi in that episode of Seinfeld! They herd you in and herd you out as if you were cattle! The service is quick and rushed, and the atmosphere is rather cramped. It is good, but for a nice, relaxed, evening, I recommend going somewhere else.
