Indian Oven2006 4th Avenue West, Vancouver
Very disappointed.
Submitted Tuesday, January 29, 2008 - 9:55pm [Dine in]

My girlfriend and I had been craving some Indian food (especially Ras Malai for dessert) for awhile, and we saw that the Indian Oven had good reviews here. We went for dinner, and either it was an off night or the restaurant is overhyped.

We ordered the Daal Amritsari and some dish that resembled Palak Panir, except without the Panir and with vegetable pakoras.

We also had an order of roti and pratha - one piece each for $2 or $3.

The two entrees that we ordered were EXTREMELY salty, and overpriced for their size. I think the curries at "Curry Express" at Lansdowne Centre are more tolerable (not to mention a lot cheaper) than the meal we had at the Indian Oven.

The service started out fine, but once we got our food, the servers totally ignored us. We ran out of bread & water, and all we had left was curry so we wanted to order some rice... we had to wait 15-20 mins for service.

Very disappointed.

Tokyo One Sushi4443 W 10th Ave, Vancouver
Great, cheap sushi
Submitted Sunday, November 11, 2007 - 3:58pm [Dine in]

I've been frequenting this sushi place for awhile now, and although it cannot compare to some higher end restaurants, it's definitely great for cheap sushi.

I usually take out, and no matter what I order, it's ready in a maximum of 5 mins. Very fast. In terms of sit-in dining, the service is alright, not overly friendly, but it is fast and attentive.

The quality of sushi is also very consistent - I've found some sushi places use imitation crab and cucumbers as a "filler" for scallop rolls and dynamite rolls and such, but this place actually FILLS your scallop roll with scallop.

Rolls are also pretty cheap and not puny, but not too large that they fall apart (ie. Sushi King).

Their lunch combos are also GREAT value: for 6.95 you can get a very filling lunch.

Afghan Horsemen Restaurant, The1833 Anderson Street, #202, Vancouver
Solid restaurant
Submitted Sunday, November 11, 2007 - 3:50pm [Dine in]

I've been to the Afghan Horsemen on a few occasions, and each time was as good as the last.

The service is excellent - the servers act like you're a regular even on your first visit.

Food is great -a huge selection on the menu; it's rare to go to a restaurant that can cater to meat-lovers and vegetarians simultaneously. The prices are a tad high, but it's well worth it.

I have not sat in the "Afghan room" with the cushions, but it looks very nice and romantic.

Definitely a great place to go on a date for some ethnic food.

It's too bad that they're moved to a fairly secluded location near Granville Island

Enigma4397 West 10th Ave., Vancouver
Nothing special
Submitted Sunday, November 11, 2007 - 3:33pm [Dine in]

My girlfriend and I went to Enigma for an impromptu dinner out, as we've heard it was fairly good and wanted to try the place out.

We came in (around 630PM, quite early) without reservations and were seated immediately.

The server took a long time to get to our table, after repeatedly flagging him down, despite the fact that it was pretty quiet in the restaurant. I ordered the New Orleans Jambalaya, and my girlfriend ordered the Vegetarian Enigma, and we had Potato Latkes for a starter. We were given some cold French bread that we suspected was just from Safeway, and the butter therefore would not melt. This turned me off from further eating any more bread.

Latkes were delicious and quite numerable, although not worth the $8.50. My jambalaya was alright - the sauce was nothing special, and the shrimp were tiny. My gf's Vegetarian Enigma was just a whole lot of tofu with some grilled veggies stacked on top. Nothing special.

The server seemed to be listening in to our conversation - my gf asked me what something on her plate was, and the server answered her in a very condescending tone, as if we weren't "cultured" enough to eat at Enigma.

Overpriced, mediocre food.
