La Tandoor Restaurant3651 Moncton St, #120, Richmond
Tasty Food but lack of Enthusiasm for Customers.
Submitted Friday, April 30, 2010 - 12:56pm [Dine in]

Good food, small portions.

They are the only Indian Restaurant in Steveston Village, and have been there for several years now.

Table Staff is usually made up of one person who Serves/Answers Phone/Packs Take-out Packages/does Paperwork behind a small counter.

When we ate there (a few times) we felt ignored and felt we were imposing on the Server, asking for things.
We like Indian food very much, but stopped going there.

Steveston Cannery Cafe3711 Moncton Street, Richmond
Great Sandwiches. Big.
Submitted Friday, April 30, 2010 - 12:31pm [Dine in]

The best egg salad sandwich I've ever had in my life is at the Cannery Cafe, tomatoes, mayonnaise, sprouts, fresh lettuce, cucumbers, salt & pepper. It's huge.

You go to the counter and place your order and tell them what you want on your sandwich. You wait for your order, or if it's busy, they will sometimes bring it to your table.

Medium size place, has lots of tables and white plastic chairs inside. Outside there is a patio.

They also serve breakfasts in the mornings and are busy on weekends. Clam chowder is good too.

George's Taverna3760 Moncton Street, #130, Richmond
Delicious Chicken Shwarma & George's Fries.
Submitted Friday, April 30, 2010 - 12:21pm [Dine in]

Small restaurant located on a corner. There are not many tables inside and not much room to walk either. In summer, 2 people can sit outside on a bench in the small "boat" beside the entry door.

Their chicken schwarma in a pita or plate, covered in lots of tzaziki sauce, along with George's fries, are really delicious. The chicken is tender and juicy and has a lot of flavour.

If you don't like eating in there, try the Take-Out Window on the side.

Also the Navy Bean Greek soup, which has potatoes in it, is very good too.

Stevenson Bakery12231 No. 1 Road, Richmond
Steveston Bakery - A local hangout.
Submitted Friday, April 30, 2010 - 12:09pm [Dine in]

This is a small bakery/coffee shop with a few tables inside and a couple tables/chairs outside. It's been here for a long time. It's plain inside and sometimes gets crowded when busy. The locals who hang out here are pretty loyal and have been coming here for years.

They sell soups, coffees, fresh baked breads, buns, baked goods like pies, cookies, pastries. The pastries are not heavy and not overly sweet.

The soups were quite good, inexpensive, and filling for a quick, casual bite.

I've taken boxes of cookies to family gatherings and casual dinners with friends. The kids like the cookies.

Market at Papi’s, The12251 No. 1 Road, Richmond
When you visit Steveston Village, you must take some food home from The Market at Papi's.
Submitted Friday, April 30, 2010 - 11:52am [Dine in]

We have shopped at The Market at Papi's for several years. The staff are very enthusiastic and cheerful.

The prepared food behind the glass counter, is fresh. The Orange Polenta small cakes and Lemon Squares are delicious and I think cost under $5 each, we take several home. Their other baked desserts are also tempting, but my fav is the Orange Polenta Cake.

They have shelves of speciality items, lots of bottles and jars. It's a small place, so I try to get in and out quickly.

I go straight to their stand-up cooler, where they store their home-made pasta sauces. The best I have ever purchased. There are 2 sizes of plastic tubs, small size is about $4.79 and large size cost a bit more. There are several sauces: Marinara tomato sauce; Bolognese meat sauce; cream-tomato sauce; other sauce with chilies or anchovy in it. They don't make all the sauces every single day, so when I see the sauces I like the most, I buy 6 tubs and freeze them at home. It works for me.

They sell several brands of Pasta, and my favourite has become a brand called, "rustichella d'abruzzo" ($6.39) comes in a brown paper pouch, 500g (1.1 pound). I use 2 small tubs of sauce for 2 people. (My fav is to mix one small tub of Marinara and one small tub of Bolognese, but you can do what you want to).

Our meals taste like we are eating in a good Italian restaurant, but with the convenience of eating at home.

For those evenings when you do want to eat out, please try Papi's restaurant. But if you like staying in, please try Papi's pasta and sauces and other speciality items.

Pat's Galley3900 Bayview Street, #110, Richmond
Casual diner frequented by loyal locals.
Submitted Friday, April 30, 2010 - 11:02am [Dine in]

Pat's Galley used to be on Moncton Street for a long, long time. They moved to their new location on Bayview Street only a couple years ago.

It's a small, tiny place. Very, very casual. I have gone there dozens of times to get my coffee and corn beef hash and shredded potatoes any time of the day. I like the food because it is not greasy and not heavy. They serve breakfast all day.

My husband always has the grilled halibut, small amount of food, light and not greasy. I have either eaten there while reading the newspaper (the daily newspapers are always on a table by the counter), or taken my grilled halibut - To Go Takeout.

If you are tourist, you probably have peeked inside the window and walked on. It's not fancy, but if you are a local, and eaten in there, you might be aware of the charm a small, tiny place has in this big busy world.

Le Nakamura Japanese Dining12480 No. 1 Rd, #130, Richmond
Get there early for lunch.
Submitted Friday, April 30, 2010 - 10:45am [Dine in]

We've eaten there so many times over the years, (maybe over a 100 times) I can't count how many. They get busy during lunch time, so best time to arrive is just after they open at 11:30 A.M. Arrive before noon, and you may be able to get a window seat, and faster service.

The Bento Boxes are good, and a good deal. The Chicken Bento box comes with a small salad with soy/white radish type Japanese dressing, chicken, rice and small udon soup.

The large size udon soup is good enough for a meal at lunch, perhaps accompanied with a bowl of Endemame green beans in the pod.

I like the steak dish, it is not heavy at all. The meat is sliced thin and is very tender. It's good for dinner and I've also had that dish for lunch.

We had a lunch party there once. When there are a lot of people, the service is slow, however, it is worth waiting for. The food is really good.

Cheers!

Charthouse Restaurant3866 Bayview Street, #200, Richmond
Nice view out the window. Casual ambience.
Submitted Friday, April 30, 2010 - 10:05am [Dine in]

We have eaten there a few times over the years because I like casual dining and looking out a window at the Fraser River. The times we ate there for lunch or dinner, the staff were very laid back (maybe too laid back), and the food was good, reminded me of a wholesome, family meal, lots of carrots and potatoes on our plates. My husband always ordered the grilled or baked fish, as he does not like fried food.

We once ordered food for a party and we had to pick it up ourselves. The people at the party really liked the assorted seafood tray and it was gone in a few minutes. However, no one touched the chicken tray. It was supposed to be sliced baked chicken, and instead was deep fried chicken fingers that were tough. No one would even take the huge left over chicken tray home from the party. That was disappointing, but glad the seafood tray was a success.

They have been there for a long time and a lot of groups eat lunch there sometimes. It's a nice, casual, low key restaurant and the right amount of food on the plate. It's on a second floor, accessible by elevator or stairs. Ask for a window seat.
