Curry Sensation Indian Restaurant2828 152 street, #105, Surrey
Great Indian restaurant
Submitted Thursday, November 7, 2013 - 3:20pm [Dine in]

Took family there, total of five of us including my elderly parents.

We ordered the lamb seikh kabob, eggplant bharta, tandoori chicken and butter chicken.

The eggplant was minced and mixed, the best eggplan bharta I have ever had, was excellent. The tandoori chicken was not dry like it usually is, and it was very tasty. As was the lamb seikh kabob. And service was excellent, the restaurant was clean and tidy.

Overall - excellent tasty indian food, will be going back soon.

Fire Pots4455 Lougheed Hwy, Burnaby
Excellent Restaurant
Submitted Thursday, November 7, 2013 - 3:13pm [Dine in]

Wife and I went there for lunch, same menu for dinner as well. Very friendly and service oriented staff.

Appetizers - ordered chicken wings (salt and pepper) and Hainanese chicken. Both were good, though the chicken wings at other family restaurants like earls or cactus are better. Hainanese chicken was huge, very nice, tender chicken, not overcooked.

Soup - we ordered the Spicy Seafood Tom Yum Goong - was great. Neat concept, they bring all the ingredients to you, you have a hot element on your table, and you cook it according to how you like it. Veges were all very fresh, seafood all very fresh, and lots of it. We also got some noodles with the soup. And we got the Sriracha souce which was fantastic. With the 2 appies and the soup, we could not finish all the food and were very full.

Overall - excellent food, great service, and nice ambiance. We will clearly be going back there.

Jolly's Indian Bistro2928 W 4th, Vancouver
Fantastic food, great service, super ambiance...
Submitted Thursday, December 8, 2011 - 3:03pm [Dine in]

My wife and I and our 5 yr old son went to Jolly's on Saturday Dec 3, 2011. The place was almost full, we got a nice small table, and got served pretty quickly. Compared to Indian restaurants, this was definitely a notch above, high ceilings, white table cloth and cloth napkins. My wife and I ordered two platters - the meat thali and the vegetarian thali so that we can try the different items on the menu. We also ordered the crisply prawns for our son. Well, the food is plenty full, the thalis come with a drink, the main dishes, and a desert. Our prawns were cooked just right, and they were wonderful with the coconut. ALL (and I mean ALL) the dishes in our thalis were superb!! I am an Indian, and I go to a lot of restaurants generally, we love Indian food. The dishes on our thalis were out of this world - very flavorful yet not too spicy hot. The nans were hot and soft with no greasy residue - just perfect. Our son was able to eat the butter chicken and the prawns as they were not spicy, but again very flavorful. Ofcourse, we could not finish all the food so they packed it all for us to take home. The service was excellent, our server was very attentive even though the restaurant was almost full when we arrived. We were the last to leave and chatted with the friendly owner for a bit, we complemented him on his stylish restaurant and the absolutely wonderful food. Clearly, we will be going back to this restaurant often.

Rasoee320 Robson Street, Vancouver
Food Score = 2 out of 10
Submitted Wednesday, October 27, 2010 - 10:11pm [Take-out]

This is a new funky progressive fast food Indian eatery right in the hub of where there must now be some 8+ other smaller restaurants. Being an Indian, I walked by this restaurant several times enroute to my son's daycare and I finally made a stop for a takeout. I asked the server what is the most flavorful menu item and I was informed the Butter Chicken and the Bhiryani, so I ordered the Butter Chicken. If you have had Indian food before then you will be dearly disappointed with this Butter Chicken, no flavor and very bland. Not to mention, there seemed more rice than butter chicken. If you are looking for great butter chicken, go to Atithi's on Burrard.

James Street Cafe & Grill3819 Canada Way, Burnaby
Incredible Food, overall as solid 9 out of 10 for food
Submitted Saturday, October 9, 2010 - 7:57pm [Take-out]

We have done two takeouts from James Street grill - Kuku Paka, Biryani, Butter Chicken, and Beef samosas. Wonderful food - if you are a foodie, and love flavors from different parts of the world, you will love the food at this place. The flavor is definitely a blend of east african and indian spices, wonderful smells, fresh, and super tasty all at an affordable price point, the takeouts at about $11. And to boot, they packaged it all very well indeed, nothing spilled and to our surprise it came with some rice and naan!! We plan on many takeout adventures from JSCG as I understand their takeout menu has just expanded. We especially loved the Kuku Paka, and being indian, this was even better than what my mom can make!!

Bishop's Restaurant2183 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Incredible Service, overall perhaps a 7 out of 10
Submitted Tuesday, July 13, 2010 - 10:44pm [Dine in]

My wife and I went to Bishop's for dinner on a Saturday in July. Its a quaint restaurant with two levels, we got a table on the lower level but found the tables pretty close. Ambiance is ok though I would not rate the setting very romantic. For starters my wife had the Dungeness Crab Salad and I had an off menu item an appetizer size Mussels. The crab salad was very well presented, and was fine, but a bit plain. My mussels were amazing, cooked to perfection and that is pretty hard to do with Mussels as you can easily over cook them. We got two kids of bread and it was fun to dip the bread in the broth. For entrees, there were only 5 choices, my wife had the Sablefish and I had the Scallops. Again, both the Sable fish and the Scallops were cooked to perfection, very nice. But both lacked from a sense of flavor, plain but nice and the portions on the smaller side. For dessert, we had the Creme brule and the Rhubarb pie (with vanilla ice cream instead of yogurt), again both quite nice.

Overall, I would say the food was very fresh, nicely prepared, cooked to perfection, but lacked flavor and portions on the smaller side. But, the service was excellent from when we got there to when we left, John Bishop was nice enough to come by for some conversation so that was nice.

Atithi Indian Cuisine2445 Burrard Street, Vancouver
A solid 8 out of 10 overall
Submitted Sunday, January 24, 2010 - 9:30am [Dine in]

My wife and son (who slept in a stroller) went to this restaurant on a January Saturday night and the restaurant was full, a good sign. The hostess is the owner, and she was very accomodating to our son sleeping in the stroller and parking the stroller by our table. We ordered a salf lassi and a frankie for starters, and being Indian I can tell you the lassi was very well made and the frankie was delicious. We ordered the Railway lamb curry which my wife loved, and also the butter chicken. Being a butter chicken connoisseur, this was one of the best butter chicken's I have tasted in the greater Vancouver (incl Surrey) area. Nans and rice are included, which is nice. Total bill was less than $40 for white table cloth service, a great value. We will be back to Atithi again.

Chambar568 Beatty Street, Vancouver
Food 9.5/10; Service 9/10; Ambiance 7/10
Submitted Tuesday, June 17, 2008 - 4:48pm [Dine in]

Went to Chambar last Saturday night, didn't have reservations so ended up in the high table lounge across from the kitchen. As soon as you enter, you notice how loud the place is. Its a long and somewhat narrow restaurant, the front has a lounge, the bar, and dinning tables. As you walk past the kitchen area to the dining room in the back, there are high top tables with bar stools which is where we dined and it was much quieter and we actually enjoyed sitting there between the two dining rooms and we just might request the same table (they consider this the lounge as well so no reservations required) the next time we go to Chambar.

We experienced very good service, yes it was busy but our server did get around to us and besides we were not in any hurry. With regard to the ambiance, you feel as if you were in NY in an old Manhattan warehouse style restaurant with open beams and piping, it was quite nice and different from granite, glass, and steel. The food was absolutely fantastic. The famous mussels did not disappoint. My wife had the lamb, and I had the arctic char, both were super flavorful and delicious. And did I mention the cocktails? They have the most unique blends of cocktails, very cool. Bottom line - some of the most delicious food you can find in Vancouver and very reasonable prices. We had two cocktails, mussels, two entres, a desert, and two americanos total bill with gratuity was $135, super deal!! We are already making plans to go back next weekend!!

Pinky's Steakhouse & Cocktail Lounge1265 Hamilton Street, Vancouver
Great ambiance, ok service, ok food
Submitted Tuesday, February 26, 2008 - 2:15pm [Dine in]

Went to Pinky's sometime back in Jan 2008 for steaks as its name suggests, we expected a steak house. The restaurant is themed very much as some of the better known larger steak houses in the US with low light and lots of wood and leather. Service was ok - server did not know the grade of the steaks being served (and yes this is supposed to be a steakhouse), nor what the Organic ribeye on the menu was all about. For all that want to know, they serve "Sterling Silver" which sounds super fancy (just like Certified Angus does as well) however these are still just AAA graded steaks, not Prime, and you are paying Prime prices. I ordered the ribeye and my wife the organic ribeye without any sauces or butter so we get the full flavor of the steaks. Bottom line, steaks were just ok, service was ok, ambiance was nice. If you want a super steak, Gotham's is still the reference. If you are looking for a non-stuffy cool ambiance, Pinky's fits the bill.

Players Chophouse Restaurant and Lounge808 Beatty Street, Vancouver
Food Score = 6.5 out of 10
Submitted Wednesday, December 5, 2007 - 10:13pm [Dine in]

Being steak aficionados, my wife and I went to Players to experience their steaks. She ordered the filet and I the rib steak, both were prime quality (highest rating). The steaks were just really ok, we ordered the steaks without any butter or sauces as we like the steak in its own native flavors. Gotham's is still the reference, Player's has a way to go to serving delicious mouth watering steaks. The service was exceptional, Gabriel our server was the best we have had, knew when to approach us, how long to stick around, what to say, etc... just cant' say enough about the service. The ambiance is very nice, if they could get the steaks up to par, this restaurant would rock!!

Submitted Wednesday, December 5, 2007 - 10:06pm [Dine in]

We did a takeout from Desi a lamp biryani and goat curry with nans. The food was good, but that is just about it... good not Wow!! The biryani was quite different from any I have had, quite wet with some peppers and onions. The goat curry was nice though I would have enjoyed stronger spices to generate more flavor. Overall - good food and nice to have yet another choice in downtown.

Milan's Bistro1223 Hamilton St, Vancouver
Excellent - Jewel in Yaletown
Submitted Tuesday, May 23, 2006 - 11:21pm [Dine in]

I live in Yaletown, so am always looking for a different places to explore. Stumbled across Milan's Bistro on Hamilton for lunch, didn't look like much from outside, but its very nice inside and quite spacious. I ordered their special for the day, which was a shaved roast beef sandwich and ceaser. Wow!! The sandwich is to die for, fantastic. And the caesar is very fresh, cool and crispy. I also tried it for dinner, we ordered the platter for two - better go with extreme hunger if you want to order that, was fantastic. The owner is the cook, and everything is prepared fresh. Very nice service, and crisp ambience, you feel in a way as if you were in a family neighbourhood restaurant in Yaletown!! I frequent Milan's regularly now, atleast once a week for lunch, I have tried the different sandwich's including the snitzel, but I like the roast beef sandwich, do try it.
