I agree with the previous review. Quick service and decent food at a reasonable price. Not exciting but it's unfair to expect that. Serving person was pleasant and accommodating. Fish my companions had was good. My fried oyster sandwich was made with cakes of chopped-up oysters, disappointing. If you like green stuff, skip the salad.

Cavernous and busy. Inexpensive and lots of food. Freshly cooked but monotonous. Generally Chinese food is an excellent choice for a group (We were 7). Not here. The long, narrow table made it hard to share dishes. The service consisted of dumping all 7 dishes on the table pretty much at once (no consultation about what to serve when or how to avoid too many dishes that were similar, and no assumption dishes would be shared). Too many dishes with the same veggies (celery which I hadn't encountered in a long while like that, plus snow peas). The best dish was pork with spinach, because it wasn't "the same" as all the other dishes. 1-4 people would not have noticed the shortcomings as much.

good and interesting
Submitted Friday, June 16, 2006 - 8:44pm [Dine in]

I come from out of the area: I have had a lot of good Indian food, supplied by co-workers and at restaurants they took me to or recommended. We walked in Vij's on a weekend evening and were amazed at the friendly service at the bar while we waited (and the freebie snacks, which were delicious). The food was interesting and well prepared, and the service was excellent as well. Before checking the menu, I somehow expected more bread and vegetable options than were on the menu. But I definitely respect the limited-menu concept and the care with which our dishes were executed. Each dish was spiced differently, and suitably.

happy customers

We walked in without any advance knowledge. Shared oysters then ordered separate items. The steamed Dungeness crab was superb, what it should be and not what it so often is. Recommended wine was a great choice. Good basic bread and salad. Excellent dessert and coffee. Service was friendly. Enjoyed the setting, with the fireplace, water view and open-air feel.

Bistro 101 at Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts1505 W 2nd Avenue, #101, Vancouver
brunch for three
Submitted Friday, June 16, 2006 - 8:32pm [Dine in]

The main course was beautifully trimmed, cooked and garnished. The buffet items were good but not outstanding. Didn't have the pastries, but from those sold in the bakery they doubtless were outstanding. The service was friendly and while not inept, seemed tense (and friendly, like our waiter was nervous). Wish there had been more BC wines by the glass, but did appreciate accurate recommendations (and all the wines seemed food friendly).

We looked at the menu and through the window at the food in "the other place". Prices and quality both looked lower. At Taki's, the quality was high, the Greek wines were interesting and food friendly as well. The main dish portions were huge, enough for two meals. Five of us shared one serving of saganaki, and with the excellent bread, it was plenty. Our meals (5 people) were split between seafood and lamb, and everyone was content. The service was outstanding, very relaxed, friendly and knowledgeable. The space between the tables was also appreciated.

7 walk-ins dined on the deck. The service was excellent, friendly and attentive yet casual. All of us are at least passable cooks, and none of us detected a "blip" in what we ordered. Most impressive to all of us was the impeccable fish --- fresh and cooked to perfection (done to the proper degree, still moist inside). Limited but interesting wines by the glass (wish there had been more to choose from, especially BC wines as we are from out of town). Gorgeous setting and most welcome after a walk around about 3/4 of Stanley Park.
