hidden gem

this place is perfect for dates, i mean perfect. dark, cosy place where you can the staff (who are actually japanese) yell out orders and greet customers.

food is refreshing as its a nice change from the regular japaneses sushi places - this place serves home-cooking and no sushi at all.

price is reasonable. one down side, it doesn't take reservation. if its a large party, this is not the place, but for a table of two, you can expect to get seated in 10 to 15 mins during the busy time.

it was a regrettable experience for me and my girlfriend, going there for a bday dinner. its never a good sign when the restaurant is half-empty at 9pm, the size of the bar is rather impressive, ppl lining up for take-outs, the drinks menu is as big as the dinner menu, and the waitresses' english is barely understandable - while all this is happening at burrard and smithe (a location thats inches away from le crocodile).

the food is decent - hence a 2 according to dinehere.ca. the decor is authentic, i suppose, but the service was rather dismal. i won't go back.

ordinary japanese food

i went there once with a friend of mine. overall, it was satisfactory, nothing spetacular. the service was above par as what you would expect from a japanese restaurant.

the food itself was okay - like what you would find in other above average japanese restaurant. one thing i did learn was that plum wine is not wothywhile, at least at Kirin. it tasted like dilluted and sweetened rose (the red wine).

Excellent food

i must say that the food there is absolutely fabulous - very refined indian cusine. the service was very friendly too. and its definitely a good place for a romantic dinner for two.

however, i do have some complains to make. on the website, it says that there is a lounge at the back for the waiting patrons. but the "lounge" was no bigger than a living room. given the furnitue around and the mini bar there, when people start to come in, it is quite uncomfortable. two, there is no front reception, which adds extra stress on the staff to keep the customers happy. three, there was a pregnant waitress working the night i was there. that made me a little concerned.

i think all my complains are based on one fact, that the restaurant is WAY too small for the number of customers it wishes to have. secondly, the fact that it does not take reservation only amplifies the first problem.

i would go back there again, but not in another a couple of years.

Afghan Horsemen Restaurant, The1833 Anderson Street, #202, Vancouver
some experience to remember
Submitted Monday, November 27, 2006 - 4:32pm [Dine in]

i went to the restaurant with a lady-friend of mine. the ambiance was really nice - rustic and reflective of the afghan culture. we also really enjoyed the food. the fried potato was very delicious even though it may not be the most healthy food in the world. i had the lamb shank, which was quite tender. the service was friendly though they somehow forgot our appetizer. i regret that i didn't make the reservation early enough so that we could sit on the floor. btw, we had the mighty horsemen drink. try ordering for two, and u'd be suprised how they serve it.
