Vancouver Community College Cafeteria250 West Pender Street, Vancouver
One of the Best Values in the City.
Submitted Sunday, February 7, 2010 - 7:56pm [Dine in]

The food here is so delicious. For about eight dollars, you can have a dinner with a roasted meat and THREE sides. You can have a huge breakfast with your choice of eggs, breakfast meat, hash browns, toast, and fruit cup for under five bucks. And the food has always been really good. I've had no complaints at all.

Yes, it's a cafeteria, but at these prices, who cares?

Lemonia1055 Georgia Street, #230, Vancouver
Where's the Lamb?
Submitted Sunday, February 7, 2010 - 7:40pm [Dine in]

A few times a month, I always make sure to visit Lemonia. Their food is delicious and filling. The combo for $8.30 or so will fill you right up: your choice of salad (they have a great selection), rice, hummus, tzatziki, pita, potatoes, and meat. The chicken gyro meat is delicious-- not at all greasy and bursting with flavour. My mouth is starting to water just thinking about it. The potatoes are okay... a little soggy sometimes.

One thing I've noticed is that whenever I order lamb souvlaki, they never seem to have it. Maybe I don't come at the right time.

The service is great; the people who work there are very friendly and cheerful.

Keg Steakhouse & Bar, The1121 Alberni Street, Vancouver
If I could eat the prime rib here every day, I probably would...
Submitted Sunday, February 15, 2009 - 10:50pm [Dine in]

I have been to The Keg on Thurlow twice, and I'll definitely go back. The first time, I had calamari as an appetizer. For the price of it, I expected a lot more. I did like that it wasn't deep-fried, though, and it was yummy. The second time, I had yam fries. They were great-- full of spice, and I had a heaping portion. For the main course, I've only had the prime rib. My steaks have always been perfectly cooked (medium-rare), and they've been divine. I like the garlic mash but could do without the fried onions. As for dessert, I've only had the cheesecake, which was good but nothing exceptional.

The waiters I've had have been very friendly and attentive, constantly refilling our water glasses and making sure everything is going okay. As for the hostesses... the first one we had was completely rude. My friend asked her for a table for two, and the woman simply held up her hand, motioning for us to wait. What the heck? The second one was very nice, though the entrance area was completely empty for several minutes, leaving us to wonder if anybody was even there.

The ambiance? Very nice and cozy. Not too loud, though we found the same music was playing from the other night when we had been there!

Maria's Taverna1037 Denman Street, Vancouver
Skip the dessert.
Submitted Sunday, February 8, 2009 - 10:27pm [Dine in]

I went here for Dine Out 2009 with some friends. We started with appetizers; my friend and I respectively went for pita with hummus and tzatziki, while my other friend had the soup. The pita was warm, and the spreads were delicious, full of spice. Sometimes I find that the taste of yogurt overwhelms tzatziki, but mine was just scrumptious. My friend and I were given a small basket of pita to share between us without replenishments, which was the only downside of the appetizer.

Then we received the main course: chicken souvlaki with Greek salad, rice, and roasted potatoes. There was a TON of chicken on our plate. I also liked that they removed the skewers beforehand, as it can be a bit of a struggle to remove the chicken from them. The chicken was so moist and tender that we didn't even need to cut it with our knives. It was crispy on the outside and juicy and bursting with flavour on the inside. And the potatoes were delicious, with just a hint of lemon.

Finally, dessert came. I was rather underwhelmed by my choice: Maria's Special Dessert. It tasted like one of those desserts one could make from a box-- a soggy wafer/cake-like base topped with flavourless custard and whipped cream. My friends had the baklava but couldn't finish it because it was too sweet.

Our waitress was nice and attentive, constantly filling our water and checking on us, despite the large number of people there. I'd definitely go back, though I'll skip dessert next time.

Nishiki Sushi6501 Victoria Drive, Vancouver
Worst delivery I've ever encountered.
Submitted Sunday, February 8, 2009 - 7:43pm [Dine in]

I had ordered delivery from this restaurant once, and despite some confusion and the fact that I waited almost two hours, I was ultimately satisfied. I thought I would give this place a chance again. What a mistake!

Apparently, they get outraged if they get your voicemail. I called back less than five minutes after they left a message and confirmed my order. "You just had voicemail," the man on the other line said, in an exasperated tone. I explained that my phone wasn't working properly, and he snickered. During the call, I mentioned TWICE that I would be paying by credit card.

So the delivery man arrived, and I gave him my credit card. He had a dumbfounded look on his face. "You're paying by credit card? You have no cash at all?" I told him that I did NOT, hence why I was paying by credit card. The smile completely gone from his face, he called the restaurant on his cell and bickered with the person there. He then thrust the phone at me. The woman on the other line actually had the audacity to accuse me of not telling them that I wasn't paying by credit card. First of all, when you request delivery, the payment method is indicated on the fax. Second, it is NOT my responsibility to tell every person who works there what my payment method will be. Third, I guess their mentality is that the customer is NEVER right.

So the driver ended up going back to the restaurant, leaving me with my food, and said he'd come back with a bill I could sign. I asked him when he'd be coming back, and he said, "Whenever! I get several delivery requests, you know!" He did grudgingly tell me to enjoy my food, but I wasn't hungry any more.

A few hours later, he came back, and I signed the bill. Then he said to me, "You have to let us know when you're using credit card next time. Then we can avoid all this." I kept saying good-bye repeatedly, while he kept scolding me. "1" isn't even good enough for this restaurant. The service was the worst I've ever encountered here. Maybe they're better if you don't deliver, but I don't think I'll ever set foot in this restaurant again.

As for the food, I liked it. Filling, tasty, and the tempura was delicious-- not at all soggy. The dynamite rolls had enough tempura, and the chicken teriyaki rolls had lots of chicken. Still, I'm sure I can find a better Japanese place elsewhere, with much nicer customer service. Never again!

Moose's Down Under Restaurant830 West Pender Street, Vancouver
Solid food for a solid price.
Submitted Sunday, February 8, 2009 - 7:27pm [Dine in]

I came here one Friday evening with some fellow co-workers. I had an Aussie burger; it was rather tasty and unique, as I've never had a cooked egg atop a hamburger patty before. I did pick off the beets, as I am not a fan of them. The drinks I had were huge, and I certainly received my money's worth. The servers were very friendly and attentive, and I adored their accents. My friend ordered a "Toblerone" drink, and the server even wrote her name on the drink, using chocolate syrup. We stayed there long after the restaurant closed, but they were gracious and accommodating, telling us to take our time. The only downside was the loud group of drunken people behind us who kept slamming the table, but I can't really fault the restaurant for that.

Boss Bakery & Restaurant, The4800 Kingsway, #238, Burnaby
Cheap and filling.
Submitted Saturday, January 3, 2009 - 8:23pm [Dine in]

I had the number 13, off the back of the menu: chicken chunks with instant noodles. I was pleasantly surprised by the huge chunks of chicken. The noodles themselves were okay, but the menu DID say they were instant. The meal came with a hot beverage; mine was half-tea, half-coffee. All in all, I enjoyed it.

Flying Wedge Pizza Co.5611 West Boulevard, Vancouver
Maybe delivery-free is the way to be...
Submitted Monday, May 19, 2008 - 8:33pm [Dine in]

Last year, I submitted an order online. Shortly after, I received an abrupt call from a man who snapped that the restaurant wouldn't be delivering at that time and could I please "manage to wait until after 4:30." Fine, I thought, and figured he was having a bad day.

I gave explicit directions on how to access the house and double-checked it with Mr. Crankypants on the phone, but the woman delivering the food ended up going to the wrong house anyway. She acted as if it were my fault when the address was very clearly printed on the receipt. She didn't wish me a good day or anything, basically just shoved the pizzas into my arms after I paid and left.

The pizza itself was great, but the crappy service I received from this location does not make it worth the extra cost.

I'd Eat Here Every Day...
Submitted Friday, August 11, 2006 - 8:01pm [Dine in]

Somebody gave me some leftover sushi that she received from this restaurant because she pigged out on it and couldn't eat any more. After gingerly trying a salmon tempura roll, it was love at first bite. Since then, I have ordered a variety of things from their tempura (a little soggy if you get it for takeout or delivery), spring rolls (perfectly crispy and not too greasy) and Japanese fried rice (they could cut back on the fish eggs a little, but it's good overall). The prices are decent enough for me, and I'm a poor university student.
