Greedy Pig, The307 West Cordova Street, Vancouver
They were greedy - we left hungry
Submitted Sunday, October 24, 2010 - 6:03pm [Dine in]

Tried this place for dinner the other night and was disappointed in the value and the food. Ordered the edamame hummus with pita chips to start. Was told they were old of the hummus so the other option was black olive tapanade which we decided to try. It was fine. The pita chips could of used some seasoning and the tapenade was your standard tapenade which you would have gotten has a free starter at another restaurant. Instead, this ran us $11.50. We ordered the pull pork and roast beef sandwich. The pulled pork was alright. Each sandwich came with a little scoop of slaw. The flavour was good on the pulled pork but it was small and left me wanting more. Also it was pretty fatty. I saved my last bite (like most people do) as the best bite with lots of pork and was grossed out when it was full of a huge chunk of fat... The roast beef sandwich was fine. It said it came with mushrooms but there were literally 3 pieces in the sandwich and smaller then a 6 inch sub. Needless to say we left hungry and sort of sad that we spend over $40 on something we could have grabbed from a sandwich place for $15.

Poor value, left still hungry!
Submitted Saturday, July 11, 2009 - 4:29pm [Dine in]

I was looking forward to trying this restaurant after the reading the reviews but I wish I hadn't. The portion were so tiny and not worth the $6.49 I paid. It was served on a styrofoam plate which reminded me of a baby's plastic plate divided into 2 tiny portions and 1 larger area for rice. 2 curries were served into the 2 small divided areas and I got a naan instead of the rice.

The naan was pita bread- a huge disappointment and let down as I love real naan bread and the curries were such a small portion.

The butter chicken was alright, not the real butter chicken taste from other authentic indian restaurants and the other curry, coconut chicken was decent. However, as mentioned, there wasn't enough of it to get a good idea.

The ambiance was horrible, right outside of the place (which is like a food court even though I was told it was a "restaurant") is a orange juilious type drink stand so all you hear is a loud blender the entire time you dine.
Don't go here if you want a good meal, you'll leave hungry.

They added on a 15% tip automatically for 2 people!
Submitted Saturday, July 5, 2008 - 10:40pm [Dine in]

Decided to try this restaurant after passing by many times and saw that it was in the entertainment book. I wish I didn't even step through the door. The setting was fine. When our meal came, the server brought out some naan and rice. We aren't big carb eaters and didn't order it, so we thought it was included. The food was not great and neither were the portions. Was still a bit hungry after. We used the coupon and got our bill and saw that there was a charge each for the naan and each for the rice PLUS the server added on a 15% tip for himself! I was floored! Using that coupon does not mean a server can just tack on their own tip. If a restaurant doesn't want people to use coupons, then don't put yourself in the entertainment book. Watch out if you go here, it's a big rip off.

Reef, The4172 Main Street, Vancouver
Horrible service, oily food
Submitted Monday, March 24, 2008 - 10:00am [Dine in]

I've been to the reef before and I'm familiar with the menu. I wanted to order the "jerk chicken curry" that is normally served wrapped in Roti, except I wanted it with rice instead like other curries on the menu. Our server, very rudely said the jerk chicken curry was basically a normal chicken curry with jerk sauce mixed in. All she said she could do was give me the normal chicken curry with a side of jerk sauce instead. I didn't see why the kitchen couldn't just mix it in and serve with rice.
The yam fries were soaked in oil and mushy, the curry was good but the jerk sauce on the side was unnecessary so I didn't touch it. They give you these yummy bread ball things at the beginning of the meal and we asked for a couple more. She brought then over and charged extra for them which was surprising as I've been to the reef many times and have NEVER been charged for more.
When we got the bill I was charged extra for the jerk chicken sauce as well! Which is just ridiculous. The bad attitude and unpleasant manner of the server made me not want to ever go back here again. Food was lacking too.

Chewy Halibut and Bad Service
Submitted Wednesday, February 20, 2008 - 10:52am [Dine in]

We were seated in the bar area for some reason with a horrible fluorescent light shining in our eyes from the bar area. Our server (who I think was the bar tender) was not friendly or personable. When taking our order he just came up to the table and stood there without saying a word. I had to say "I guess were ready..." to break the silence.
After we ordered, we weren't not offered bread which all the other tables had. We asked after our appy came since our server had disappeared. The bread was a baguette squished flat from a knife cutting the pieces... Not a good start to the food.
Ordered the calamari which was bland and Halibut and Paella for the mains. The halibut was horrible. It was a nice presentation but when I took a bite I had to chew it as it was was so tough! I've never had a CHEWY piece of fish!
So, don't bother coming here. Thew view is nice, but not worth the prices for the BAD food and service.

Candia Taverna4510 W 10th Avenue, Vancouver
It was ok..
Submitted Thursday, December 27, 2007 - 9:28pm [Dine in]

Decided to try Candia after reading some reviews. Portions were a good size but they should be for the prices. A little pricey for what you get. The chicken souvlaki came with 2 smallish skewers, the usual rice (which was not very flavourful), greek salad, potatoes and bread for almost $16. Kalamari was ok, not very fresh. The pizza was good though. Did not think it was worth the price.

Small portions and pricey for what you get
Submitted Saturday, September 8, 2007 - 10:54pm [Dine in]

Decided to try Zipang after reading some of the reviews. Was sadly disapointed. The service was lacking starting with the server snubbing us because we asked to her wipe our un-set table. The prices looked ok but for what you get it's not worth it. The rolls are less than 3 cm in diametre and just unsatifying. The cooked food was also small. We left spending over $40 and still quite hungry. Go if you eat something before.

Red Burrito1700 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Don't read this rating if you are easily grossed out...
Submitted Saturday, February 10, 2007 - 10:51am [Dine in]

I've heard some good things about the Red Burrito and decided to try it. I ordered the chicken burrito and was looking forward to it because it was a good size for dinner. The first bite was good, lots of fillings. My second bite was full of chicken fat and skin. Ok fine, I understand there's some fat and skin, it's chicken. However, the more I ate of the burrito, I noticed the chicken was all skin and fat with small pieces of actual meat in it. Pretty much ruined my appetite since other burrito places I've tried around the city do not include that in their food. So, unless you enjoy eating chicken skin don't get this menu item.

East is East4413 Main St, Vancouver
Not sure what happened...
Submitted Saturday, February 3, 2007 - 8:05pm [Dine in]

Decided to try East is East after reading some good reviews. We got to the restaurant, planning on eating in. After arriving, we changed our minds since there weren't really any tables. Everyone was basically eating with a plate in their lap which wasn't too appealing, so we opted on take out. Placed our orders and was told it would take only a couple minutes as everything is pre-made behind the counter in metal caf style containers. They were scrambling around to put 3 of our orders together. 20 minutes later, still no food so we asked if it would take much longer. She told us they "had to find the lids" to our soups that came with our orders. Ok.. Another 15 minutes go by and the food that was ready on the counter was all cold. Finally after 40 minutes she brings out a bag saying something about not enough salad in one container and too much in another. We told her we'd sort it out. Also note, no apology on the 40 minute wait even though all the food was prepped behind the counter.
We leave, upset on the wait, get home and find out an order was wrong and they forgot some of the dips included.
Small portions for what it was worth.
Overall, extremely upset on the whole visit, the food and service. Would NOT go back.

Great food and atmosphere
Submitted Saturday, February 3, 2007 - 7:58pm [Dine in]

This was a great experience overall. We went for dine out and the portions were a good size and very flavourful. The duck confit was delicious as well as the tuna. The creme brulee for dessert was the best I've ever tasted and a very well sized portion. I would go back again.

I love this place
Submitted Friday, October 6, 2006 - 11:36pm [Dine in]

I do love this place. Everything I try is good and the portions are really big. The naam gravy is delicious, although I find the sesame fries too large (too much potato). The dragon bowls are always a good choice, and the burritos.

Stay at home
Submitted Friday, October 6, 2006 - 11:33pm [Dine in]

Busy place and I'm not sure why. I ordered french toast which I could have just made at home, it was dry and bland. My coffee came with a piece of hair on top, the server didn't even appologize and it took 20 min for the bill. Make your breakfast at home!

Great noodles
Submitted Friday, October 6, 2006 - 11:28pm [Dine in]

This place is a good fix for fresh noodles and dumplings. It tastes so fresh since they make it right before they serve it! Broth a little bland, but overall the noodle dishes (I've only tried the noodles in soup) are really yummy!

Nirvana Indian Cuisine2313 Main Street, Vancouver
No Good!!
Submitted Friday, October 6, 2006 - 11:24pm [Dine in]

We decided to try Nirvana after seeing that they have received 4 stars from other diners. Don't bother to try it! We ordered the butter chicken which was extremely fatty, with the meat tasting "off", the eggplant curry which was luke warm and not very flavourful. It was an overall waste to go there as I've tried many other small Indian restaurants with better flavour. Portion sizes were also nothing to rave about.

Fiction3162 W Broadway, Vancouver
Bad customer service
Submitted Sunday, March 5, 2006 - 3:13pm [Dine in]

The food was pretty good at Fiction and the ambiance is nice. However, I had a few items (including more than half an entree) to pack up and bring home. Our server threw out the leftovers and I didn't notice the missing item until I arrived home. I called to speak to the manager as it was a lot of food that was thrown out. He seemed uninterested and unapologetic about the situation and did nothing to make me inclined to return there to dine. Horrible customer service.

Ouisi Bistro3014 Granville Street, Vancouver
Bad Service
Submitted Sunday, March 5, 2006 - 3:06pm [Dine in]

We were looking forward to trying this restaurant. We were greeted nicely and seated and then forgotten about for the rest of our time there. No one greeted us at the table and we had to flag down someone to order drinks and our meal. It wasn't that busy either. The food was pretty good but the bad service made the whole experience unpleasant.
