India Bistro1157 Davie Street, Vancouver
Could have been more spicy
Submitted Monday, February 1, 2016 - 10:53am [Dine in]

Walked in for their lunch buffet on a weekend. For it being 2 pm on a Saturday, there was a wait. I can take that as a good sign since it is a popular place (also, being West End and Davie, what more can you expect?) We didn’t wait too long for table for two which was nice.

I’m not new to Indian food but this is my first time at their lunch buffet. We ended up trying almost about everything. For it being $11.95 per person, it was pretty decent.

I did like a bunch of things but found the butter chicken to be a little under-spiced, something super common in Indian restaurants here to appease the Canadian tastes. Good thing is, chicken to sauce ratio was good. Even the rice (plain) alone was good enough to eat on its own. Water was always present, although I could handle the spices a lot of others seemed to really need it. I would give its buffet 8.5/10

Don't go for the food
Submitted Wednesday, August 6, 2014 - 11:07am [Dine in]

I’ve got to admit I was having my doubts about this place before coming here. When you have in mind ‘dinner’, the last place you want to go to is a pub. But because I was with my boyfriend and his friends, I had no other choice but to tag along.

The pub is truly Irish – as soon as you walk in, you’ll see Irish signs everywhere (Guinness, etc.). The number of 20-something year old's was overwhelming, and made me feel old. The food, as I was expecting it to be, was so-so. I had yam fries and blarney burger. The burger seemed sloppily put together and lacked taste. Had it not been for the shepherd's pie I would have deducted another star.

L'Abattoir217 Carrall Street, Vancouver
Fine Vancouver dining
Submitted Wednesday, July 23, 2014 - 10:43am [Dine in]

I would highly L'Abattoir if you are looking for fine dining in Vancouver. Dinner here was amazing to say the least.

The restaurant was quite busy when we arrived (6pm), so we sipped some cocktails while we waited for our table to be ready. Everything is good is this restaurant, even the complimentary bread basket. The steak diane was perfectly cooked, the meat was quite tender and had the right seasoning. The chocolate dessert added the touch of sweetness I needed.

While the meal was nothing cheap, I think it was fairly priced for the quality of food, service and location. I will definitely put this restaurant on my list of places to revisit when I’m in Vancouver.

Creme de la Crumb Bakeshop466 Granville Street, Vancouver
Yummy scones!
Submitted Friday, July 18, 2014 - 1:59pm [Dine in]

I checked out this place when I went Downtown. I love pastries, so basically, I was in heaven. The variety of things to chose from is amazing: they serve sandwiches, coffee, cupcakes and brownies, among other baked goods.

I had a scone (vanilla bean and pear flavor) which was delicious and fresh-tasting along with some coffee. The sizes of the score are pretty big and can fill one. One thing I liked about this place was that they make their food from scratch. The restaurant itself is pretty small, so I would recommend coming here solo if you don’t want to be crowded. Although there are some tables outside, the restaurant is set up for you to buy your food and leave.

Akbar's Own Indian Restaurant1905 West Broadway, Vancouver
Lovely Indian food
Submitted Friday, July 18, 2014 - 1:38pm [Dine in]

I came here with my boyfriend for a late evening meal. We were around this area and couldn't decide where to eat, so decided to check this place out.

We had to wait for like 40 minutes to be seated. Not bad for the time and location of the restaurant (busy road), but since I was starving, every minute felt like an eternity.

When we finally got a table (we got one far from the window, which was what we wanted) we went for the appetizers. I had a round of paneer pakora and it was delicious. It tasted like true pakoras. The butter chicken was also very tasty, and decently priced I must add. The curry sauce was the perfect combination of creamy, hot and not too greasy. There was also a great variety of drinks to choose from, alcoholic and non-alcoholic alike, which are not mentioned in the menu.
