Nyala4148 Main St, Vancouver
Decent but not a stand out
Submitted Saturday, May 3, 2008 - 9:48pm [Dine in]

We came here for dining out Vancouver. It was decent food but definitely hasn't stood out as a must return. We had the dining out menu and when we asked the waitress about one of the items she said she didn't know how it tasted as she's never had it.

The place was pack and I found my lamb shank to be quite good but not very meaty and a bit over salted.

Other than that it was a good enough meal.

Awesome ramen
Submitted Saturday, May 3, 2008 - 9:40pm [Dine in]

This place rocks. Since we stumbled up on it two weeks after it opened, we've been back at least every other weekend. We are obvious noodle heads.

The service is a bit slow and they've gone through some growing pains in terms of fine tuning their menu. Other than that, we have consistently enjoyed their noodles.

Timbre Restaurant2068 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Over priced
Submitted Saturday, May 3, 2008 - 8:49pm [Dine in]

Four of us went to Timbre for a bite. I had heard some good stuff so been wanting to try it out. Cool space but it seemed to be more of a bar/pub than a restaurant. Loud music, sports on big screen and a stage for a live band. We ended up ordering a couple of appetizers to start (Ahi Tuna salad and mussels). Good flavours. In the end all four of us had some form of a burgar or sandwich. All very solid and decent. None of us had alcoholic drinks or desserts. The bill for 4 iced teas, two appies, 3 burgers and a sandwich type of meal came to $90.00!! With tip the night rounded out to be at the $100 mark. Really much too overpriced especially for the type of food they are serving, the atmosphere and the neighborhood.

Ogenki Sushi4342 Main St, Vancouver
Going downhill?
Submitted Thursday, November 1, 2007 - 10:43pm [Dine in]

We've been going to this place since it opened. For the first year or so the service was excellent, the food quality was great for cheap sushi from non Japanese people. However, in the past year it's been going steadily down hill. Especially since the owners have stopped working on certain nights and they have hired staff. The last experience I had with them will ensure we never go back. Watched the chef finish smoking his cigarette out front and then go in and make the sushi. The combo we ordered came with it's miso but this was not told to us, so when we tried to return the extra miso we had ordered she said she could do that but will give us a credit on file! Absolutely ridiculous. We will be searching for a new local quick, cheap sushi haunt.

Phnom Penh Restaurant244 E Georgia St, Vancouver
Great consistent food
Submitted Thursday, November 1, 2007 - 10:38pm [Dine in]

Growing up in Vancouver I have eaten at this place since I was a kid. It was classic weekend lunch with the family. I also used to frequent their Broadway and Oak location. Their food quality is consistent excellent. The dishes are tasty and full of flavors. Love their two kinds of dry noodles with broth on the side. Great oyster pancakes and soups. I will continue to visit this place for many more years to come.

Bistrot Bistro1961 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Easy atmosphere for casual French
Submitted Thursday, November 1, 2007 - 10:34pm [Dine in]

Great service. Very attentive. What I liked most about this place was the comfort and ease. To be able to hang out and enjoy classic French fare. Great mussels although the beef bourginon was dry. I have gone back twice and enjoyed myself both times.

Legendary Noodle4191 Main Street, Vancouver
Disappointed twice
Submitted Thursday, November 1, 2007 - 10:30pm [Dine in]

First of all, this review is only for the Main St location. I haven't been to the others. I just don't understand all the raves about this place by "food critics". I went to this place the first time when it first opened on Main, before the rave reviews all over the city. I am a huge noodle head and love noodles of all kinds and types. It's the first thing I look for anywhere in the world when I'm traveling. So I was excited about this place. The old couple that was there was nice and friendly. I ordered the pork/cabbage noodle in soup and some dumplings. Definitely just ok, as in ok in a pinch if you needed something to eat. Very forgettable, especially in a city like Vancouver where excellent noodles abound. Second try was last week a couple years later and it actually was a lot worse than what I remembered it to be. I've had authentic hand pulled noodles and these just don't measure up. As another reviewer said, the broth was really weak. The dumplings were greasy. Definitely would not go back again unless my memory fails me in a few years.

Dadeo New Orleans Diner & Bar3305 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Avoid if you like real Cajun/Creole!!
Submitted Sunday, July 15, 2007 - 11:15pm [Dine in]

Had high hopes for this new place taking a chance in the construction laden Cambie Village. So decided to show some support by trying it out. I have always enjoyed Cajun/Creole cuisine and was looking forward to it.

To keep it short. Restaurant was busy but now rockin' by any means. We were a larger party so waiting was not unexpected. It took almost an hour for our appetizers to arrive. Someone who arrived last received his entree order before some appetizers even got there, blamed it on computer gliche. Some people's entrees arrived 15 minutes before others. It was a mess. Understandable to a degree as they were a new place. However, no apologies were made, the "owner/manager" had a dour expression on his face the entire time. Definitely need some customer skills.

The worst part though was the food. Terrible fried crap. A calamari po'boy was apparently just appetizer calamari in between a stale bun. Terrible corn bread. We had a wide variety of orders at the table and I hate to say, none of it was good as in Vancouver caliber of good. That's about all I can say. One of the worst meals I've had in a while. What a disappointment, as I said I was hoping for something much more!
