Tropika2975 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Tropika is as arrogant as they come
Submitted Sunday, May 24, 2009 - 11:25pm [Dine in]

We used to like coming to this restaurant but in the last couple of years each visit has been worst than the one before. The staff try to rush you to order, eat and get out as fast as humanly possible. They will give you dirty looks and comment on tips less than 20%. Yeah right, as if I'm going to tip you well after the poor service. The management and staff of this restaurant have gone downhill and you can see it with the looks of disdain they give you when you ask questions about the dishes - they really are not interested in helping you try new foods. The food quality is extremely inconsistent and the portion sizes grow smaller with each visit. I will definitely never eat at Tropika again and will tell everyone I know. They are no longer the only player in the area of Malaysian Chinese cuisine. There's a reason why they've been cited by the City of Vancouver for hygiene violations repeatedly.

Piato Estiatorio1835 West 4th, Vancouver
You can do better than eating here
Submitted Wednesday, February 18, 2009 - 12:01pm [Dine in]

I was excited to see another new Greek restaurant on the scene as I was sick of all the greasy deep fried and cheesy themed Greek restaurants around town. Piato is a restaurant that either hasn't figured out how to serve customers or a bad sign of things to come. You get the feeling that the staff don't like working there with the grumpy looks on everyone's face. Just asking for another glass of water or drink will get the rolled eyes look from our server. It's obvious who the owners or managers are as they are standing there staring down the customers and staff rather than making you feel at home. The food, while attempting to be more modern, was either lukewarm when it should have been hot or overcooked. We had the souvlaki and moussaka and wish we didn't. We won't be coming back.

Flying Wedge Pizza Co.1935 Cornwall Ave., Vancouver
Do yourself a favour, try their pizza
Submitted Friday, January 18, 2008 - 5:33am [Dine in]

Best pizza in Vancouver if you love thick toppings. If you haven't eaten here you don't know what you're missing. Don't go to the other franchise location in Richmond, it's not the same ambiance. This is a true Kits gem!

Benny's Bagels2505 W Broadway, Vancouver
Where else can you go late at night
Submitted Friday, January 18, 2008 - 5:23am [Dine in]

When it's past 10pm at night there aren't a lot of casual eateries still open. Benny's still does a wicked mocha and Clubhouse Bagel. Ok i agree with the other posters that the service sucks, but that's starting to be the case all over Vancouver. I usually come here late at night and not on a Friday after the clubs close so I rarely have to suffer through the long ineups. Still a solid place to eat. If it's daytime/lunch/dinner I'd think twice, but for late night it's the lesser of other evils :)

Bridges1696 Duranleau Street, Vancouver
Why do people still come here?
Submitted Friday, January 18, 2008 - 5:20am [Dine in]

Must be location, location, location. It can't be the food quality and service. They hire pretty people with no customer service skills to work there - at least they're usually pretty. The service is crap for what you pay. Hey, listen to my accent, I'm from Vancouver, you can brush off a tourist because they're not likely to come back but be nice to the locals or we'll post on boards like this. The prices are way out of line for what you get, the view is nice, but if you happen to live on the Westside like us then you're not going to be impressed by view alone. Before you consider eating here, remember this isn't the Bridges we used to know 10yrs ago - this is just another Milestone's/Cactus Club wannabe now.

Stepho's Greek Taverna1124 Davie St, Vancouver
Still going strong
Submitted Friday, January 18, 2008 - 5:15am [Dine in]

I've been going to Stepho's for 10yrs and loving it. Still a Vancouverite favourite - if you wanna be like the locals, order take-out or you'll be waiting a long time in line outside.

The moussaka and souvlaki are our comfort food favourites, always large portions, and still as good today as it was when I first started going over 10yrs ago.

Vera's Burger Shack1455 West Broadway, Vancouver
Overrated - victim of their own success
Submitted Friday, January 18, 2008 - 5:10am [Dine in]

Vera's back in the old days used to be our favourite burger shack. The Broadway and Granville location symbolizes everything that's gone wrong with it. The staff are unfriendly and unhelpful, don't ask questions, because they'll tell ya "read the board!" They spend most of the time talking to each other and their friends who seem to drop by a lot - free food? Where the heck is the responsible adult manager? The tables are rarely cleaned, that's your job if you're eating there. The food quality, what happened! Overcooked! The new strategy seems to be raise the price and open lots of locations - you're pissing off your loyal customers. The price they're charging is way too much for what you get - best value is the plain burger - anything else and you're going to walk out with a burnt patty and $10 poorer ... for a burger! That's before fries and drink, hey now you're talking $15 - hmm, I'm thinking White Spot or Modern burger now.

Vera's Burger Shack1935 Cornwall Ave, Vancouver
Going down down down
Submitted Friday, January 18, 2008 - 5:02am [Dine in]

I've been going to Vera's for years, even when it was only in Dundarave. The Kits location has unfortunately gotten worse each time I visit, which is too bad since I live 5min away. They're doing the Sport Chek thing, hiring younger staff who spend more time chatting with each other than paying attention to what you're ordering and cooking it right - I shouldn't have to send back two overcooked burgers. The plain hamburger is still good value, but have you checked out the prices they're charging for the rest, $8+ for that??? And the milkshakes and fries have also gone downhill. Greasy greasy fries and overpriced milkshakes. The owners need to spend more time in quality control rather than focusing on expanding locations - even worse are the staff at the Granville & Broadway location. Sorry Vera's, like FatBurger you've lost the edge and now you're just hype and overpriced. Fix that and I'll come back.

Oyaji Zushi1542 West 2nd Avenue, Vancouver
Hidden gem on the Westside
Submitted Friday, January 18, 2008 - 4:55am [Dine in]

I love trying new Japanese restaurants especially the ones that are simple, just provide great food at a reasonable price. This is one restaurant that you could easily walk by and not even notice - it's located in a small space in the very modern Waterfall building. Don't let their looks deceive you, the prices are extremely affordable and they only serve wild salmon. Yes, it was that sign stating wild salmon that lured me in the first time and I go back every week. There aren't a lot of tables, perfect for a group of 4-6 or take-out. The food is of the highest quality and so is the presentation. Vancouver has no shortage of Japanese restaurants and they're either authentic and great tasting but expensive, or inexpensive but sacrifices taste. Oyaji is authentic and you don't need to spend more than $10 per person.

Temaki Sushi2156 W. Broadway, #2, Vancouver
Was better before they renovated
Submitted Friday, January 18, 2008 - 4:39am [Dine in]

Temaki used to one of those Westside gems, not too flashy, very welcoming, inexpensive and tasty. Loved going there before they renovated! After the renovations you get the feeling they wanted to go upscale. The prices have gone up but the food quality/innovation has not. They used to have these great box specials available for lunch and dinner. What they've done now is offer those boxes with larger portions but charge quite a bit more for them - sorry, we don't all need those big servings. The ambiance is ok, there's no privacy, anyone driving outside can look in and see you. The staff act like they're still getting the hang of serving in a place with more tables - you know that rushed panic I'll be right back look? I'd still eat there but it's no longer at the top of my list of Japanese restaurants on the Westside.
