Jimmy's Tap House & Restaurant783 Homer St., Vancouver
What a overpriced mistake.
Submitted Monday, September 28, 2015 - 6:37pm [Dine in]

Boiled ribs covered in BBQ sauce, literally mashed boiled dry potatoes, old dry vegetables steamed vegetables. Any other pub would have been better. Burgers and sandwiches do not qualify for second half price entrees. I would not have mind the terrible food if they actually honoured the 50% serving entree as advertised, but when the food is that bad and at those process we could have ate better anywhere else.

Maybe it was an off night, but I dont think so
Submitted Sunday, December 13, 2009 - 1:52pm [Dine in]

Intended to visit the new Shanghainese restaurant a couple blocks down the street, but due to lack of reservations and an indefinite wait time we decided to try again another time, on the way back to the car we noticed SPICES, with its colourful interior and more importantly an open table for 2, I'm a big fan of pho, especially on a cold night and when I'm hungry. The prices were a $1 to $3 more than most pho places but justifiable as they are in the pricier westside and it is a nice looking establishment. To we ordered the chicken wing starter, a house special pho, and a beef ball pho. I dont expect phnom penh wings because that would be asking for something extraodinary, but something tasty and crispy would be nice. What arrived was 7 refried and dry MID JOINT wing peices for what I believe was $6.95!! I laughed when she placed the plate on our table. But then maybe the pho will be different. My house pho came, and it had a lot of noodles.. good, the soup was bland.. bad, the soup was not hot enough to cook my rare beef or onions well, nor the sprouts and basil leaves I had to ask for. The beef ball pho was even more bland than mine as I had to have some of my dates dish as she did not want to eat anymore of it. She is not usually one to use hot sauce on her food, but that night she did. The plus side is that the meat they served was leaner than most other pho places and the restaurant seemed very clean.
They are probably not catering to the regular pho eating clientel, but I will definetely not be returning, and head east a few blocks for a bowl the good stuff.

Better Dim Sum than I expected
Submitted Wednesday, November 25, 2009 - 8:48pm [Dine in]

Came in for the AYCE dim sum lunch. Being a table for one they were very prompt bringing the tea pot, the tea was much bolder flavoured than the watered down stuff at most other places. Dining by myself the staff were kind enough to quickly bring over dim sum favourites such as Har Gow, sticky rice, sui mai, and black bean ribs. The dim sum was certainly not the best but thats not why I was there and it certainly was much tastier than some of the a la carte restaurants else where. The pieces were large, hot, and tasted as they should. I did notice that they stopped coming by as often after my 4.5(halved the sticky rice order) dishes, which is fineas I wouldnt not have been able to eat anymore. Some hot sauce would have been nice, but I didnt ask. Overall it was good value for $13.25 with taxes and they appeared happy with the $15 I left behind. Worth going back if what you want decent dim sum at a good price, and not a snob for the pricier high end stuff.

Yummy Sushi1980 Pine Street, Vancouver
Had to try the breakast
Submitted Friday, November 6, 2009 - 1:53pm [Dine in]

Heard a lot about this sushi place serving $2.95 breakfast. Upon entering, greeted kindly by the waitree(wife?). The place is small and reminded me of dining in someones kitchen, but I was not there for the ambience and it was clean! The food was fast, well portioned, and cooked as I would expect for eggs and sausage. The bonus was that they serve shredded potatoe hashbrowns and not the fried potatoe chunks that so many places use as hashbrown nowadays. There were plenty of recent newspapers to read and I did not feel rushed. I'd go back just to support this little mom n pop business and to fill up on cheap breakfast too!

Good Experience
Submitted Friday, November 6, 2009 - 1:39pm [Dine in]

Fantastic lamb and kalamari, great service, and helpful patrons as our table was discussing what to try. The restaurant fills up fast and reservations are accepted, I suggest getting there early. Pano's seems to be a popular neigborhood establishment and was very popular amongst family's the night I was there. Wonderful place to begin the night and casual date.

First time
Submitted Friday, November 6, 2009 - 1:29pm [Dine in]

Few years ago I heard great things, was in the neighbourhood recentlyt and thought it was time to try it. Perhaps I was hungry, had high expectations, or it was an off day. But I found my sandwhich lackiing size. The meats were not stack relatively high and there were minimal amounts of vegetables on what seened to me a small foccacia. Given it was a $7 sandwhich, I have had better and grander at other deli's. Unfortunate because I was hoping for something I would go back to again and again.

Kep Driving - Post Concert Dinner
Submitted Monday, October 12, 2009 - 6:18pm [Dine in]

Had the craving for HK style food, arrived just after 10pm, there were no hours posted on the door but the hostess said it okay and seated us. Perhaps this was a factor as they were close to closing. Now the food: the Curry beef brisket I ordered tasted as I would expect from most HK style restaurants, but I couldnt believe my eyes with what was served, it was basically all rice, 3 peices of brisket and broken chunks of potatoes. My friend barely touched her noodles for lack of flavour. Maybe because it was close to closing but when I ask, and the hostess says its okay, I expect to this would not effect what I order. Next time I have a HK style craving, I'm driving to Richmond.

Regrettable
Submitted Saturday, September 26, 2009 - 11:49am [Dine in]

Wanted a quick bite but not take out so I decided to try this sushi place, was I disappointed, The bento box was not excessively expensive at about $10, but the food looked unappetizing and unthoughtfully prepared. The salad was placed in a bigger compartment than the terriyaki chicken, which is fine as long as the flavours were good, but it was'nt, and the gyoza tasted like it was cooked frozen(perhaps a common practice but this one stood out). I didnt finish my meal and left unsatisified, thinking I should have went for the take out sushi. I hope they improve as I'm sure its family operated business and is in a great location, but even though I live in the area, unfortunately I would never want to spend my money there again.
