Grounds for Coffee2565 Alma Street, Vancouver
Healthy and delicious muffins!
Submitted Tuesday, August 14, 2007 - 7:59pm [Dine in]

this place is really known for their cinnamon buns...people wait in line every morning for them. while they look and smell absolutely delicious i hate to admit i have never tried them becuase i have been lured by their healthy alternative- the super muffins.

they have reduced fat, hearty whole wheat muffins. their flax muffin is a solid meal. if you're feeling more adventurous they also have strawberry, blueberry, and mochachino flavours...their muffin selection tends to vary.

and as the name implies, this is a coffee shop but they also have a large open kitchen where they bake their muffins and buns all day.

definately try it! the food is delicious, the coffee is great and you can go healthy (muffin) or indulge (cinnabun).

i love this place!
Submitted Tuesday, August 14, 2007 - 7:42pm [Dine in]

this by far the best indian food i have in vancouver (and i have tried them all!). i came in for the buffet to get a sampling of their food and everything was amazing. the butter chicken- fabulous! good cuts of meat, no fat, not oily and utterly delicious.

the servers are very nice and bring you fresh made naan (naan is included if you get the buffet which is only $8.95 from 12-4 and $14.95 after 4PM)

the buffet has butter chicken, samosas, and tandori chicken and about 4-6 other vegetarian dishes which are fantastic.

i loved this place so much i came back the next day for more.

definately check it out.

Himalaya Restaurant6587 Main St., Vancouver
great buffet- real indian taste
Submitted Tuesday, August 14, 2007 - 7:38pm [Dine in]

this is one of favourite indian places in the city, falling in a close second behind the davie street all india. definately go for the vegetarian buffet. it's about $8.50- all you can eat and includes naan, rice, dessert and vareity of veggie dishes (dahl, chana masala, etc..) just be careful not to overeat.

have tried a lot of indian food in vancouver and found it laking, but himalaya is solid restaurant with a good buffet and decent spice (though i still found the curries in need of a little more indian heat).

and don't be fooled by the ambiance- while it too looks like an old dennies and is somewhat worn down, the food is amazing and the place is always full.

great place for good indian food at a good price.

All India Sweets & Restaurant6507 Main Street, Vancouver
decent, but not nearly as good as their davie location
Submitted Tuesday, August 14, 2007 - 7:32pm [Dine in]

i came here during an indian all you can eat buffet spree (i tried himalaya, all india (main) and all india (davie) over the course of 1 incredibly filling weekend.

their food was good but not nearly as amazing as their davie street location. it's hard to believe that the two are sister restaurants considering how different they are. for starters the ambiance is like an old Dennies- which isn't bad but don't take a date here if you're trying to impress them.

the buffet is vegetarian and is served on metal mess-hall style plates which is kind of cool.

if you have a choice- go for himalaya down the block. while it is equally lacking in ambiance, they have more spice in their food. himalaya has a very authentic indian flavour while the curries at all india taste a bit bland.

overall decent- but i will probably not go back.

Gyoza King1508 Robson Street, Vancouver
Really good Japanese food!
Submitted Saturday, August 4, 2007 - 11:20am [Dine in]

Gyoza King has amazingly good Japanese food at pretty good prices.

I had the Ebi Mayo (prawns in some sort of really good, really flavourful sauce), Mackeral with Miso sauce and raw tuna. Every dish was truly delicious and very well prepared. While the portions were small, they were very high quality. I recommend ordering several dishes if you want a healthy size meal.

Great restaurant- I will definately be back.

MacFalafel3601 W 10th Ave, Vancouver
Best chicken shawarma!
Submitted Tuesday, July 31, 2007 - 11:23am [Dine in]

I have walked by MacFalafel many times and never thought to enter- probably becuase of its less than desirable location next to a bus stop, 7-11 and bizzare antiques store with giant wooden mounties.

I am glad i finally did enter becuase the takeout food is amazing. For $3.99 you can get a chicken shawarma wrap that is fantastic- the best I've had in Vancouver. You can even opt for whole wheat pita bread which is a nice touch.

The place definately gets packed during peak hours, so be prepared to wait a while. It seems many people in the area know about this place.

While you can eat in the restuarant, it is has the ambiance of an old MacDonalds with middle eastern flare. I recommend getting take-out.

Highly recommended! I eat here all the time and love it!

Gramercy Grill2685 Arbutus Street, Vancouver
A huge disappointment
Submitted Monday, July 30, 2007 - 1:11pm [Dine in]

While Gramercy Grill has the curb appeal of a classy restaurant, it is nothing more than a overpriced, snobby MacDonalds. I ordered the chicken schnitzel and for the rip-off price of 12 dollars I received an over fried McChicken sandwhich. In what might be considered copyright infringement, they even served it with MacDonald's trademark special sauce. To top off my disappointment I also recieved a minuature side salad of bitter greens with no dressing.

Forget about ketcup- while this place is suposedly a classy burger/brunch restuarant, they do not have ketcup (or pepper) on the tables. If you ask one of the waiters for some, they will look incredibly inconvenienced and return, at their lesuire, with a little metal pan of ketcup- For a 12 burger at a self proclaimed "Grill" restuarant, I expect a bottle of ketcup, not a metal dog dish.

I dare not express my true disappointments in the service. We waited a full 40 minutes for the McChicken sandwhich and burgers to arrive, during which time the kitchen caught on fire and filled the restuarant with a thick, black smoke. No apology was offered, no windows were opened. When we politely asked for some Ketcup, by saying "Excuse me sir may I have some ketcup", the waiter snipped "Don't ever call me sir!" I was literally floored by this comment and unsure how to respond- a very uncomfortable dining experience indeed!

In short- if you like overpriced, oily McChicken burgers and you enjoy being verbally assualted by waiters, go to Gramercy!

Indian Oven2006 4th Avenue West, Vancouver
Good food
Submitted Tuesday, June 19, 2007 - 12:17pm [Dine in]

Indian oven has smaller portions than I am used to at Indian restaurants, but the food is also higher quality. For about 11-14 dollars you basically get a small pot of curry, meat or whatever dish you order. Naan and rice are extra.
I ordered a veggie dish- everyone else at the table ordered chicken which was delicious. You can pick the level of spicyness for each dish from mild, medium, hot to "Indian Hot"...I thought the hot was spicy, but fairly mild by most Indian food standards.

Overall a pretty good restuarant- a little pricey for what you get but it's good food.

Burrito the size of your head
Submitted Wednesday, February 21, 2007 - 10:32am [Dine in]

This place has massive burritos so come hungry- and bring a large napkin. The food is tastes good and is more Mexican than most places in Canada...unlike the steamed, papery tasting burritos you find elsewhere in the city, these actually have spice and flavour. Try the salsa bar, its almost as good as you find in California.

Falafel King1110 Denman Street, Vancouver
get the shwarma
Submitted Saturday, December 30, 2006 - 9:51pm [Dine in]

i'll admit- i made a mistake and ordered the falafel, thinking that since they were the "king" of all falafel it must be royally delicous. it was a medicore mistake- the falafel was dry and lacked spicy, tangy sauce or hummus. the iceberg lettuce and tomatoe didn't contribute much flavour either.

the chicken shwarma bites i stole from my boyfriend, however were delicious. nicely cooked chicken, no fatty bits and scrumptious sauce. if i had royal anointing powers i would name this place Shwarma King and eat there everyday.

i'll definately go back, only next time i'll be all over the chicken shwarma.

East is East3243 W. Broadway, Vancouver
blah food, but nice pillows
Submitted Wednesday, December 27, 2006 - 8:49pm [Dine in]

the ambiance here is very nice- pillows, rugs, candle lights...looks like the mideastern room at the playboy mansion. but don't count on getting a good table. a canoodling couple spent hours hoarding a large cozy booth while 3 other large parties (including mine) were crammed on the comfortable wooden floor. if you have large legs or sensitive knee caps, you won't find East is East comfortable.

the food was pricey for what you get- i had a roti wrap thing that was tastey, but left me hungry. the chai samples were great, but 5 or 7 bucks for a cup of tea seemed extreme- i'd rather buy a beer and get more buzz for my buck.

i sampled the 17 dollar platter but found it greasy and unimpressive, like a foul version of an indian thali meal. the spices were off and the food was overpowered by oil. if you want to spend 17 bucks on a meal, go down the street to the eatery and get some delicious sushi- its a much better deal.

if you find it difficult to eat while strangers are engaging in soft porn and taking love naps in the booth, don't come here. and by all means, don't bring your children.

Mediocore chinese food
Submitted Wednesday, December 27, 2006 - 8:22pm [Dine in]

if you want safe, clean food in chinatown hon's is a good bet. you can see the kitchen, the bathrooms are fresh and the servers a efficent and kind. they have mathcing t-shorts and cool palm pilots to take your order.

i ordered postickers which are suposedly the house specialty but i thought they were average tasting and a touch on the greasy side. i also had the squid and "fresh seasonal vegetables", which is apparently is just bok choy. the squid was chewy and the sauce was little funky. overall the food was mediocore but not nasty, i probably won't go back.

and, tragically, you don't get a fortune cookie (or any other sweet) with your check :(

pretty good
Submitted Wednesday, December 27, 2006 - 12:20am [Dine in]

i've been here a couple times- one was fantastic the other, so-so. the all you can eat deal is decent provide you are extremely hungry and feel like eating your weight in rice and seafood. if yo.u order all you can eat you don't have a fancy selection of sushi to choose from (the BC roll is nasty but the california is solid). but it is a good deal and it is quality sushi- many of my friends have gone and never once gotten sick. this sushi isn't orgasmic but it is filling and nice, so overall a good deal.

Guu with Garlic1698 Robson St, Vancouver
decent but pricey
Submitted Wednesday, December 27, 2006 - 12:13am [Dine in]

guu on garlic has decent food- some of the dish are downright awesome while others are overpriced and overcooked- such as the grilled squid. i ordered it and waited 30 minutes for my squid. then it arrived and tasted fairly plain but had the consistency of bubblegum, chewy and nasty, like a fishy flavoured rubber. considering the wait and the price i would have expected more. the sashmini portions were small and left you wanting lots more. the miso was cheap but again, mini portions. if you want a fulfilling meal plan on spending a pretty penny- at least 30 buck a pop.

Eatery, The3431 W Broadway, Vancouver
order the platter
Submitted Wednesday, December 27, 2006 - 12:06am [Dine in]

if you come on a date or with a friend order a platter and you will get a good deal. the small sushi platter has 40 pieces for 20 bucks and easily feeds 2 with some quality sushi- far better than other places i've been on broadway. the love boat is another good platter for about 32 bucks and can feed 2, perhaps 3. the music is loud and the wait is long, but honestly the food is good and worth if you split a big order. i don't go for the image (the art, music, trendy decor) i go for the sushi which is fresh, fairly priced and consistently good. the service is quality as well- ask for s rool with less rice and they go out of their way to please you. overall great sushi and fun place to eat out.

so-so- some dishes a hit others not so much
Submitted Tuesday, December 26, 2006 - 11:58pm [Dine in]

the kofta (i think that is how you spell it?) was really good- veggie dumplings served in a cheesy spicy sauce that was very unsual but delicious. thankfully someone reccomended the dish as we entered becuase it was worth it. the chaat appetizer however was less than desirable- lots of sour cream over fried bits of bread and some sugary spice. it was not worth even the cheap appetizer price. the service is sloooooow and bad...don't come thristy as you may not get a water refil.
