Try the liver and onions
Submitted Saturday, September 18, 2010 - 8:42pm [Dine in]

My husband and I arrived for an early supper, about 5:30. Not many people were there yet. Service was immediate and friendly. I had heard that the liver and onions here was good and having never tried it before I ordered that and my vegetarian husband ordered a "Blackie Spit" pizza minus the meat. Without asking, he was offered additional fruits and other veggies to sub as toppings.

Ambiance was warm, everything neat and clean. Washroom was cozy, even some hand lotion to use.

My husband said the thin pizza crust reminded him of papadum with a softer interior and he really enjoyed it. He doesn't usually eat the whole thing but here he did. The liver and onions was fabulous as promised, with perfect mashed potato, peas, ample gravy, lots of onions and tons of liver. I also ate my entire meal. Our water was constantly refilled (mine hot with lemon, his cold) and the whole experience was pleasant.

Highly recommended.

Pretty Disappointing
Submitted Sunday, August 15, 2010 - 9:16pm [Dine in]

It's all gluten-free so people like me who have to eat gluten-free (still a relatively new thing for me and only since 3 months) might get excited about it. It is in a fairly empty mall, small storefront with fluorescent lighting and boxes piled on old refrigeration units. Choice is limited. I had a pea soup which was warmish sort of and decent tasting. Also had 1/3 of a turkey panini. It had turkey ends and lettuce in it. That is it. The bread (rice-based) fell apart, which is normal but even grilled it tasted like sawdust with a baking soda flavour. Grilled lettuce is nothing to write home about. My partner had the Greek Pizza. Tasted OK, a little gummy but OK. Unless you live in North Van it seems not worth a trip for. Prices are high as for all gluten-free items anywhere. Hope someone else had a better experience. Maybe the cookies are better than the bread? Oh well. Staff are nice. Oh yeah, they also aren't licensed to fry so your eggs are poached or poached. The omelette must be a microwave deal or something.

Try the Lettuce Wrap
Submitted Saturday, June 12, 2010 - 9:32pm [Dine in]

My husband and I stopped by on a night when I was hungry enough that I wouldn't make it back to Delta without supper first. I ordered the ostrich lettuce wrap and he ordered the Ruaam Mit Phat Bai Horapa (snow peas, fresh tofu, carrots, bean sprouts, mushroom with green basil). As mentioned by other diners, service was fast and water was always kept topped up. The lettuce wrap was spicy and a bit oily and it was exactly what I wanted, tasted nice and came on a bed of puffy crispy rice noodles. The amount of lettuce was good. I ran out but only 3 spoonfuls of filling were left. I ate the whole thing. His dish came in aluminum foil and that was a bit weird. I guess they bake it in the foil? It was simply what it said...veggies steamed in their own juices with some basil. No other sauce as far as he noticed. He enjoyed it. For 12 dollars it might have been nice if it came with some rice or something and there was a little piece of something hard in it. I wondered if it was a bit of bone. I hope not. He is vegetarian. So I think they are great at some dishes and so-so at others. Try the lettuce wrap.

Nice surprise
Submitted Saturday, November 14, 2009 - 10:10pm [Dine in]

My husband and I were in Richmond and realized we were ready for supper. We were driving around wondering where to eat as there are places on every corner. Hon's was packed and the people's choice is rarely off base for us so we went in.

We had vegetarian and there was plenty of choice. They were willing to leave off any sauces with MSG for us too and just do a house clear sauce. We had Buddha's Feast (with a gluten product in it), the veggie dumplings and a pan-fried bean curd skin with mixed veggies. portions were good, sauces were good, food was fresh and fast. There were constant tea refills and pleasant staff. $20 before tip and we had leftovers. We will come back.

Coming Back
Submitted Friday, September 4, 2009 - 10:26am [Dine in]

I brought two friends here to try it out together for supper. It was quiet and clean. We were offered menus and water and then not bothered at all until we looked over and they knew we wanted to order. We got the cucumber tomato salad, yogurt, bread basket, achar, 2 kinds of vegetarian curry with cashew sauce and two dishes of rice. We had thought the rice would be single portions but each dish was substantial. There was a lot of food and it tasted good. The service was perfect too. My friends also tried the gulab jaman for dessert and they said it was OK but they preferred it warm (it is served cold at mezbaan). We walked away with some leftovers (and we ate heartily) and all of it for about $50. Suitably impressed.

Tuscany Restaurant451 Bowen Island Trunk Road, Bowen Island
Cozy Authentic Italian
Submitted Tuesday, August 18, 2009 - 2:20pm [Dine in]

My husband and I took the Bowen Island Express from Granville Island to Bowen for a romantic first anniversary outing and supper, with reservations at Tuscany. It was very busy so we were glad to have reservations. We saw a friend there from Vancouver too.

As another reviewer commented, staff are very chatty with their customers who are friends but we did not find this a problem as we had excellent service the whole evening. Water is replaced as it is drunk, menu items were explained despite being on the board behind us and other customers recommended certain desserts. Very friendly place!

We had the Molto Vegetariana pizza and the Firenze pizza. Both were delicious. The firenze was heaven. For dessert we had the panna cotta and the tiramisu. They are not stingy with the mascarpone! We enjoyed the entire experience and our bill, including green tea and 20% tip, was $54.00. We took some of the pizza home too as we could not finish it and still eat dessert...you see where our priorities lie =) This place is worth the visit.

Chat with friends over good food
Submitted Tuesday, July 14, 2009 - 2:55pm [Dine in]

Dharma Kitchen has fantastic vegan veggie burgers that have some friends asking if I am sure it is vegan. It is. Service is aloof but I think it's part of the serene atmosphere they try to create. Staff are courteous. Food is made fresh. Unless you like pudding don't go for dessert. The music here is on but low so you don't have to shout to have a conversation and that is very nice.

Great Desserts
Submitted Tuesday, July 14, 2009 - 2:50pm [Dine in]

I was out in Langley with some friends who were on a business meeting so I wandered back to the restaurant in time for dessert. The waitress brought out a large tray with all desserts displayed on it and the cake I chose was rich and delicious. Interesting to enjoy with a train running around the walls of the dining room. Friendly atmosphere and prompt service.
