My friends and I, went to celebrate her birthday. Firstly, they charged a 15% "service charge" because we brought a cake. For a nice restaurant on Robson they only have one washroom and it's awkward when a lot of people wanna go. Their food was... interesting. I enjoyed what I order, but my friend ordered coconut seafood rice. It was basically bland plain rice with some bland plain sauce. After all that, they brought in the cake at the most inconvenient time, when only the birthday girl was at the table and no one else. When we went to pay, they overcharged us 10 dollars and when to went to inquire, they were unwilling to double check the orders. We left unsatisfied, hungry and angry. I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

don't go save your time and money.

My first time at TGIF and it was not a very good one. My siblings and I were kinda depserate so we settled for what was in the mall.
The restaurant was nearly empty and I, did not like the decor very much I feel as if it's not exactly very inviting and just very cluttered. Anyways, Our table was dirty and so were our straws... The prices were pretty much the same as any other restaurant this time like Red Robins. We weren't expecting much. What we were disappointed at were the proportions. We order spinach dip appetizer which was OK but I've had WAY better. None of us were full which resulted in us ordering a pricy desert that also came in a very small proportion. In the middle of ordering, we saw that our servers had been switched without any notice. I found the second server to be muh friendlier. My sister, being the money-bag that she is, decided to leave a generous tip, although our time there wasn't exactly pleasurable.

Overall, i am not planning to go back there anytime soon.

Bland food but Cool Drinks
Submitted Friday, January 9, 2009 - 11:37pm [Dine in]

I went to this place for a friend's birthday party so I didn't actually get to experience the service very well, from what I saw, the service was OK. I ordered an 8.00 dish and got a huge bowl of food. I order seafood rice with cheese. I also order a drink that was not a a soda type thing with mango stars (which a really cool). I got sick of the food within the first four bites of it. It was very tasteless and I couldn't finish what I ordered. What I did finish was the drink. It was very unique, I had never tried anything like it. There were other flavours but i had grapefruit and my friend had apple. The drink had two layers, one was a syrup and the other was a soda with mango stars at the bottom. And whipped cream on top to layer it all off. The drink was amazing.

Overall, I will probably go back there just for the drinks. Although the proportions are good and the ambiance is great. Its' really nice inside and it's pretty clean with a modern touch to the decor.

Good Prices

My Friend suggested we go to this place because we were all pretty much broke and she said that this place had good prices. Once we walked in it was very busy inside but they were able to seat us in about 5 minutes. I was the only non-asian sitting in the restaurant I could feel a little tension. Once I saw the menu I realized my friend was right, the prices were very good. We sat there for about ten minutes and thats when my friend got her order. I had to sit there for another 20 minutes while my friend ate because I wasn't getting my order. The servers kept staring at me as if they wanted to say something but couldn't. Finally I got my order and saw that there was a lot of food on the plate, and it was well worth the price. The bad news is that once i got my order my friend had already finished her order. (Yeah, thats how long they took) I was slightly fed up and decided to get the order to go. I ordered fish fillet with noodle soup. The noodle soup was bland and tasted like nothing but the fish fillet was good. It had this lemony hint to the taste that I liked. The woman would not listen to me and after I had asked her "Can I get this to go?" she nodded then pretended like I had never asked and went off to other business. I had to ask her a second time. It seemed as if she were angry with me.

Overall, I probably won't be visiting the restaurant again, but it does have cheap prices and good proportions of food. The inside of the restaurant is also very invited and it has a modern feel to it. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to non-asians as you may feel that you are being disrespected when trying to get some service.
