Surprisingly nice
Submitted Saturday, November 1, 2008 - 11:25pm [Dine in]

We ( the Other Half and I) were in Langley at lunch-time Saturday. Have driven by this place a number of times, and there is always a full parking lot.

Nice and clean pub atmosphere. Service was friendly and timely.

Good pub menu, great specials. Steak sanwich special was very nice... We will return if we ware in the area.

Galini Greek Kouzina & Grill19475 Fraser Hwy, #101, Surrey
third try
Submitted Thursday, October 23, 2008 - 12:31am [Dine in]

Have been to Galini twice before, once when it had just opened and once about a year ago. The first time was really very good, the second time was not so good. Decided to give it one more try.

The Other Half and I stopped by for supper on a Wednesday. It was quite busy, but we were seated and given menus immediately. I found it difficult to read the laminated menu in the dim light, but the multi-level room itself is very attractive and "modern" rather than blue and white.

The menu covers Greek and steak, pasta, chicken choices. They bring you a small complimentary bowl of soup, which is a nice touch. One this occasion, it was spicy cream of chicken and vegetables. It was not very spicy, and I think the base was powdered. OH ordered escargots (with garlic toast) and chicken pacific - breast of chicken with crab and shrimp in a bernaise sauce. I ordered a filet mignon. Both came with caesar salad, rice, a piece of roasted potato, and vegetables. OH said the chicken was very good, lots of it and tasty. I found my filet to be "liver-ish" tasting, which was odd. It was tender and done as I asked, but I found the strong taste unpleasant. A small basket of pita pieces and another piece of garlic toast came as well. Half litre of red Tsantali and that was our whole order. As we were on our way to a play, we did not have time (or room) for dessert or coffee.

Value...? Bill for two was over $70 - I don't think it was exceptionally good value. Our server was friendly and efficient,

I don't think we'll rush back. It was OK, but expensive for just OK.

Coza! Tuscan Grill20065 Langley Bypass, Langley
VERY glad we tried it
Submitted Monday, October 13, 2008 - 10:37am [Dine in]

We have been meaning to try this place, every time we drive by... Yesterday, in Langley for shopping chores, we finally made it..

It was lunchtime, but also Turkey Day - Thanksgiving, so it wasn't busy. We were greeted and seated promptly. A nice room, open and spacious. No crowding between tables, which is always nice. While it is a big room, there are two levels, and several "areas" to break up the space. Nicely done, and a clear view of the prep and pizza area outside the main kitchen... a bit of culinary action to watch! Restrooms were quite spectacular, down to automatic switches on EVERYTHING in the women's. Quite a novelty!

The Other Half had spicy seafood capellini, I had bistecca with gorgonzola toast, roasted veggies and a green salad. Their house Sangiovese was very acceptable, and they provided complimentary, crushed tomato-and herb dressed crispy flatbread. The OH had tiramisu for dessert and I tried the dessert "bellini" with prosecco drizzled over gelato and sorbeto.

All the food was very nicely done. Lots of seafood (clams, a prawn, salmon, a white fish) in a nicely spicy tomato and garlic sauce on the al-dente capellini. The steak was perfect, tender and flavourful. Gorgonzola toast was small, but packed a mighty taste...yum! Veggies were whole tomato and asparagus, grilled perfectly. Salad was simply mixed greens, but with a balsamic vinaigrette that was just right. Tiramisu was like home-made - excellent. The frozen "bellinii" was refreshing and intriguing. There were chunks of peach in it that were frozen too solid...the only "hmmmm?" part of it.

Service was attentive and friendly. As it was not so busy, they had time to check back often, but that was not intrusive at all. An excellent lunch - not cheap, but worth what we paid; we will be returning to try dinner.

Too generous...
Submitted Monday, October 6, 2008 - 10:03pm [Dine in]

An update.... in retrospect, it was NOT even a passable experience. There are so many really good East Indian restaurant in the area... why bother with sub-standard?

Because a review has to be at least 300 characters, I will babble on. I am only doing so because I felt that, for the money, this place was not up to par.

Bombay Se7500 120th Street, #201, Surrey
Movin' on up...
Submitted Friday, October 3, 2008 - 10:16am [Dine in]

Bombay Se has moved. They are still located at 7500 Scott Rd, but they have moved upstairs, to the space that used to be Next Level. The room is the same, pretty much, as it was when Next Level was there. The Bombay Se people have added Bollywood posters and some TV sets are playing Hindi movies. In lounge area, the TV's are tuned to sports.

Currently, they are not open for lunch. Plans are to do lunches starting in November. They are closed Tuesdays.

The Other Half and I had been meaning to try it out, based on the reviews here. When we finally got around to it, the old location had closed. We were about to say "oh well", when we noticed new signage upstairs, Finally, they opened and we went last evening for supper.

Since the sizzlers are their signature dishes, we each ordered one. The OH had sizzling chicken with peppercorn sauce, vegetables and rice. I had chicken tikka with red chilli sauce, veg and rice. Both came with masala fries. Both arrived with a whoosh of steam and a long-lasting sizzle from the iron pan beneath. We also ordered one garlic naan (the OH's addiction) and cooling raita, just in case.

Mine was excellent. Chicken was in large chunks, the garlic/chilli sauce very tasty. Lots of rice and veggies beneath, and the hot iron plate seared the veggies just a bit. The OH's chicken sizzler was pretty good, but there was a bit more of a "char" to it. Garlic naan was lovely, yogurt raita was cool and fresh. But, OH.... the masala fries! Yummy, yummy!! I can see making a meal just out of the fries and cold beer.

Service was excellent as well. Prompt, attentive, and friendly. One server spent quite a bit of time patiently explaining just about everything on the menu, in detail, to a couple who came in not knowing much about Indian food

Not too many people in the early evening, but more were arriving as we left. A bit different, very good experience. We will return for the novelty, the good food and the people.

First time at Korean BBQ
Submitted Monday, September 29, 2008 - 1:25pm [Dine in]

Other Half and I decided to broaden our horizons and try something new (for us). Passing through Richmond later in the morning, we flipped a coin and headed for Korean BBQ. Because we had passed this place in the past, we went in.

Server/manager/greeter/busgirl seemed QUITE startled to see us. We were early (11:45-ish), but sheesh. We were seated at a table in the very middle of the room, a table with no burner. We had told her we were there to try the BBQ, and could we please move? Great consternation and consultation with someone in the kitchen, then a reluctant move to a window table WITH a burner. BUT, no one in the building knew how to light the burner/BBQ(!), so if we wanted to wait until "the manager" got there, half an hour or so, we could do BBQ. Just because they didn't seem to want to do BBQ for us, I got stubborn (Scottish blood), and said we'd wait. As she was scurrying away, I managed to get her attention and order two beers while we waited.

After a short while, a very cranky young man bustled into the place, and grabbed the business-end of the burner from the table. We tried, but he would NOT make eye contact or crack a smile. He got the burner going, snarled at the server, and disappeared into the kitchen, where a loud haranguing match began. Meanwhile, there we sat, waiting for the burner to be ready and waiting for the server to take our order.

FINALLY, we got going on our adventure. I ordered rib steak, the OH ordered BBQ squid. The plates were delivered with a distinct thump. Good thing it isn't rocket science, as we were on our own. The meal itself was very, very good. The rib steak and the squid were both excellent, the side dishes interesting. They "forgot" to bring side bowls of rice, but "remembered" when I asked for it. They shouldn't have pictures on their menus...

Room was nice, with two parts. We were in the cafeteria-looking side, the other side looked more like a lounge. The bathrooms were quite artistic, and very clean.

Bottom line, hmmm. The surly, reluctant and evasive "service" somewhat spoiled it for us. Sorry we are not Asian, but in the Lower Mainland, these days, it shouldn't matter. Usually, I am happy to report it doesn't matter. Would try another Korean place for more BBQ, but will not be back at this place because of attitude.

My first visit
Submitted Monday, September 29, 2008 - 1:00pm [Dine in]

The Other Half, my sister and I were in the area last week. We were running late and getting mighty peck-ish mid-afternoon, so we stopped here to try it out. Having a choice, we went to the pub side.

Service was outstanding, from the instant greeting to taking drink and food orders, to checking up to make sure we didn't need anything else. Nice smiles, great sense of humour.

Food was pretty good, fresh and hot. Sister had a quesadilla, the OH had a mandarin salad with grilled chicken, I had my usual "lets see how they do it" rare steak sandwich. Everything came quickly, and cooked to specifications, and the steak itself was excellent. Next time, we'll try the pizza or greek items offered.

Having never been in the "old" place, I found the room to be very pleasant and cozy. Lots of smaller areas for more privacy, lots of room between tables. Very nice pub atmosphere, and the bathrooms were very clean.

Most definitely will return.

Finally got here...
Submitted Sunday, September 21, 2008 - 4:23pm [Dine in]

We usually pass this one by on our way to our favourite pho fix. Have heard a few people talk about it, so went to give it a try.

Sunday afternoon, 1:30-ish. and it was fairly quiet. Two large tables, two smaller tables were full. Not a very big room, but tidy. The specials look great, but we were side-tracked by the regular menu.

Seafood chow mein, hot garlic sauce fu yung, chinese mushrooms on 4 vegetables, and sweet & sour (after reading a previous review here). We also got the complimentary lettuce wrap, which was very tasty. Food was hot, fresh and very good. The fu yung was especially good, very tender and just-perfectly cooked, loaded with vegetables.

We will certainly go back.

The bill was $35 for four large dishes, and we took home lots of leftovers, so I think that was good value.

Service was very fast, so that the dishes arrived steaming. Hot water was added to the tea immediately.

Went for lunch...
Submitted Saturday, September 13, 2008 - 9:28pm [Dine in]

... amd it was very good. Nicely-done "ye olde Irish pub". Clean, tidy, and interesting.

The Other half and I searched it out for a Saturday lunch, based on reviews here. The OH ordered (on tap) Keith's Red Amber, and I ordered (on tap) Kilkenny. The OH had the Jameson Irish whiskey chicken with gammon-style ham and mushroom, with "mash". I tried to order steak and frites, but was told that they recommended "medium rare" Back to the good ole steak sandwich on a garlic'd slice of french bread, "melted" onions and fries.

The OH pronounced the chicken breast excellent, the gammon & mushrooms were very tasty. The "mash" was from a mix, too bad. The steak sandwich was excellent, perfectly grilled. The fries tasted like frozen, and were not such a success.

Service....hmmm. Young things busy chatting with other young things. Service was NOT very "connected", and the young things spent most of their time at the bar.

The room is very nice, very "olde Irish". The W/C was very clean.

There seemed to be a "vibe" missing. Maybe we were there too early on a Saturday. They have live music in the evening, might be a more upbeat place then...

Submitted Friday, September 12, 2008 - 4:31pm [Dine in]

We arrived a little early, wandering into a fairly quiet room. Greeted promptly, drinks orders taken, menus delivered. The Other Half went for the beef dip with caesar salad, I had the benchmark steak (rare) sandwich with fries.

Food came quickly, drinks refilled as needed. Beef dip was declared to be VERY good, and the steak sandwich was also VERY good. Excellent piece of beef, cooked perfectly. Great onion rings on top. Fries were hot and fresh.

A pleasant L-shaped room, bigger than it looks from either end. Patio available out back. It was very clean and tidy. Service was very friendly, and very quick.

Recommended for a pub lunch.

Nathan's Grill6390 Darnley Street, Burnaby
Glad we found it!
Submitted Friday, September 5, 2008 - 3:39pm [Dine in]

There seemed to be two versions of Nathan's being discussed here. We had to go to Burnaby, so thought we would try to find this place. Even with the map, it was challenging!

Servers were friendly and prompt. We arrived slightly before the lunch hour, but the breakfast menu was not offered. No problem. We had the regular menu and a specials sheet to choose from. The Other Half had meatloaf with mashed turnip & potatoes, and broccoli for a veg. I ordered the test piece, steak sandwich (steak cooked rare) with salad.

The food was fresh and tasty. Steak was cooked perfectly, and came with mushrooms and fried onions on a baguette. The meatloaf had a spicy sauce, but that made it more interesting. Servers seemed to be working as a team, and several came by to check on drinks and so on.

Ambiance...it is very, very nice. The place is small, but the patio is heated and surrounds two sides of the restaurant. Inside, it is modern-looking, clean lines, slate floors. Bathrooms were impeccable. The only quibble I had was that when the restaurant filled up, it was VERY noisy. Hard to hear conversation across a small table.

The prices seemed a bit "downtown", but the food we had was worth the $$. We would come back another time, if only for the adventure of finding the place!

Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant3888 Main Street, Vancouver
great (pricey) dim sum - cranky hostess
Submitted Thursday, August 14, 2008 - 5:00pm [Dine in]

The Other Half and I decided to drop into Sun Sui Wah for dim sum today. Being a weekday, and early (11:30) we thought it would be ideally not-crowded. The hostess at the front desk looked a little perturbed to see us, but we were hungry!

The place was half-full, and we were seated quickly. Got our request for bo-lay tea and one fork in, and settled to the enjoyable task of choosing from an extensive dim sum checklist. With the standard har gow and siu mai, we also ordered prawn and chive dumplings, tofu and eggplant and green pepper stuffed with fish paste (one piece of each in an order of three pieces), Chinese doughnut in rice roll, egg tofu topped with shrimp paste and almond jello for dessert on a very hot day.

Everything came along in good time, and our tea was kept refilled with hot water. Service I would say was outstanding, but we were early and the restaurant WAS only half-full.

Room is a standard open room, airy with a high ceiling, clean and tidy. The bathrooms were OK, although perhaps the cleaning supplies could be stored somewhere else than under the sinks in the ladies WC.

As the room got busier, the servers started to move faster and lto ook right through us. It took several tries to wave down someone for the bill.

The hostess-lady arrived with the bill folder, looking even more upset than ever. When I reached for the folder, she just about threw it on the table. Hmmm, that was a jarring note. Not sure what was getting her knickers in a knot, but when paying a good amount of money, I sorta expect some eye contact, or a pleasant expression.

The quality was very good, but it IS more expensive than some...

Roundel Cafe2465 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
great breakfast spot
Submitted Monday, August 4, 2008 - 11:52am [Dine in]

Went for breakfast at Roundel with my son and his partner. They live locally, and had been raving about this place.

Ambiance....hmmmm. Funky-eclectic, retro-diner....? Sorta.... Early in the morning (they open at 9:00 on weekends, not sure of other days), the fans were keeping the air cool and circulating. It can get quite warm later in the day, I was told.

Food - Son ordered ham and cheese omelette with rye toast, partner ordered the bennie special (involved avocadoes and tomatoes) with pan fried potatoes, I ordered Huevos Rancheros (a personal "test" dish for breakfasts) The omelette and bennie disappeared promptly. Coffee was refilled often. I worked my way through really good black beans and a "home-made" salsa with plain yogurt instead of sour cream (good!), fried eggs and a whole wheat tortilla. My only disappointment was the tortilla - I prefer corn tortillas, and the whole wheat wasn't even warmed through, just folded under the eggs and beans. On the whole, though, it was very good.

Service was friendly and prompt. Bathroom was clean. Total for three huge breakfasts as less than thirty dollars.

Worth looking for in the row of older, smaller stores on the Hastings Rise, just east of Nanaimo.

Very good seafood
Submitted Thursday, July 10, 2008 - 12:03pm [Dine in]

Two friends and I stopped by for an early supper before Bard on the Beach. Only one other table seated when we arrived, but it quickly filled up!

The two friends had never been there before, and puzzled a bit over the blackboard menu. The server seemed a little distracted, and did not offer any help. We ordered grilled salmon, blackened swordfish and grilled scallops, all with rice. We split a house salad with vinaigrette dressing between three of us, and it was plenty - even some left over.

I ordered a pale ale, the two others split a 1/2 litre of chardonnay. It took a while to get our drinks, as the phone kept ringing and the only server seemed to get "sidetracked" by people he knew. Main items in the food choices were excellent in all cases. The house salad looks like packaged fresh baby greens, but nicely augmented with extra tomatoes, cuke, onions, corn kernels... Nice vinaigrette dressing. The rice was good, but just barely warm. The seafood, however, shone. Good sized servings, perfectly done. The scallops came on two skewers, perhaps 10 large scallops in total. We all ordered the lemon caper sauce. Two liked it, one didn't.

The server remained at the bar chatting with friends as much as he could. We had to wave him over to get the bill, and we weren't in a huge hurry.... I would say he is competent enough, but not a multi-tasker!

It was pronounced a great new place to try (for my friends) and a satisfactory return visit for me. Recommended, but don't expect pampering...

Value is incredible (the aforementioned $3.50 all day breakfast) and the quality is very good. Eggs are done perfectly, hash browns are real potatoes, bacon (3 strips) was very good, and nothing was greasy! I had black tea, the Other Half had coffee. The OH can be picky about coffee, but he said this was good brew!

You might not stop in here, as it looks a bit run down, but it certainly worth a try. Tables were clean, the place is tidy. The "Good Morning!" greetings from several staff just as we entered was friendly, and service was pleasant and timely.

A great "cafe-style" breakfast spot.

Submitted Friday, July 4, 2008 - 3:54pm [Dine in]

Based solely on reviews here we stopped by for lunch on Friday. It was busy, with a lineup. As we must have looked a little lost, some friendly souls in the lineup "splained" it to us. The choices were daunting, and everything seemed very reasonably priced.

I ordered a grilled Reuben sandwich with fries, the Other Half ordered pork schnitzel sandwich with fries. We ordered soft drinks, but afterward noticed that they have Okanagan Springs signs up, so beer, at least, might be available.

We scored a table, and didn't wait long at all. As mentioned, very friendly servers and owner. The Reuben was excellent, not greasy, but lots of wonderful quality corned beef and homemade sauerkraut with a generous amount of cheese. Pork schnitzel (two patties) was pronounced quite good by the OH. Fries were fresh and hot. I had to take home half my Reuben. The owner stopped by during a lull in the kitchen and checked to make sure we were happy with the food. Oh yeah, oh yummm...

Well worth looking for. Great value, good food, nice people. On a sunny day, you can take the food a few hundred yards to the park by the river and picnic. We will be back to try the all-day breakfast!

Minerva's2411 West 41st Avenue, Vancouver
Hmm...felt rushed.
Submitted Monday, June 30, 2008 - 9:11pm [Dine in]

We went to Minerva's last Friday, early in the evening. Had my 88 year old mother on her cane and my 84 year old aunt, as well as the Other Half and I. Even though there were many empty tables, the irritated-looking owner (?) said he wasn't sure if he could seat us...!.

We asked NOT to go up ANY stairs, as my mother's mobility is not good. He INSISTED on sitting us up ("only"!!) one stair, even though we had asked him not to, and there were many empty tables on the level part of the restaurant (without "reserved" signs....)

We were seated, and the "rush-them-out" started. Would we like a drink, were we ready to order...? Now, I realize this is a Kerrisdale tradition, with lots of older 'regulars' who know what they want. I still kinda like to take a look at the menu....this was my second time there.

The 'Friday special' of prime rib was not mentioned until we asked if there were any specials. We ordered a litre of the more-expensive (Chile!) house plonk and two appies to start. The wine was poured/spilled by a wait-person who seemed to be listening to someone else. Immediately after the appies, the mains arrived. Are you feeling rushed yet...?

In all fairness, the prime rib special was very nice. Both the OH and I had ordered it, and it was a substantial piece of very good beef. The older ladies ordered chicken, which one pronounced to be tough. Lots of leftovers, and they were packed and on the table before we had finished the wine. The offer of the dessert menus was in the same "listening to someone else" fashion, and we declined coffee and dessert. The bill was on the table, "thanks for coming" was delivered over our heads, and we were outta there...record time, less than an hour.

OK, good but not outstanding food, very rushed and impersonal service, slam-bam-thank-you-ma'am, and on to the next customer waiting for our table. No smiles, no pleasure in a full restaurant, no feeling that ANYONE was glad to see us....just our VISA card. We felt like we were being pushed out the door.

Not worth it, unless it is your only choice.

Located on the busy highway through Cloverdale, this place has been here for years. The parking lot tells you who might be inside...lots of pick-up trucks. Sort of a trucker-stop ambiance, the old red and black linoleum is clean and highly polished, the tables with checkered tablecloths covered with glass. Everything looks neat and tidy, if older.

Based on the fact that this IS a diner, not haute cuisine, I was most impressed. NOT a greasy spoon in sight. Greetings were pleasant, service was prompt. Coffee and iced tea arrived almost instantly. All-day breakfast, sandwiches, salads, wraps, burgers pretty much the menu. We ordered breakfasts, which came in short order. Eggs were done perfectly to order, bacon was crisp, sausages NOT greasy. Real home fries (not frozern) were plentiful and well-browned, and again, NOT greasy. Drinks were refilled as soon as we emptied them. My only "quibble" would be the bottom-grade jam packages. Not much taste to the raspberry...

Well priced, friendly servers, obviously a "local" hangout, but welcoming. Think we've found ourselves a new breakfast/lunch spot!

Submitted Friday, June 20, 2008 - 10:22pm [Dine in]

the Other Half and I searched out this spot for breakfast around 9:30 on Friday morning, having crossed the river for an early morning appointment. We were HUNGRY!!

Decor, as mentioned, is funky and eclectic. Looks like auction lots of leftover school and restaurant furniture. Industrial carpet could use a cleaning. Bathrooms were clean.

Only one other table occupied when we arrived. Got the coffee and menus promptly. The server seemed a little blank...not surly, but not very friendly either.

The OH ordered the Biker's Breakfast with toast, a huge pancake, eggs, bacon, sausages, baked beans and chopped fried potatoes they called "hash". I ordered the English Breakfast, eggs, bacon, toast, tomatoes, baked beans and those pan fried potato chunks. The coffee was hot, strong and really good. The eggs were perfectly cooked. The baked beans were canned and laced with BBQ sauce, not bad. The toast was tasteless factory bread, the tomato (singular) was almost green and inedible, the bacon was precooked and limp, and the "hash" was...um, greasy, limp and not very nice.

Coffee was refilled once by request. We had to ask for the syrup for the pancake.

Perhaps it was an off morning, but I was disappointed, having searched the place out, based on reviews here. The White Spot does a better breakfast, IMO.

a lunch buffet? in a pub??
Submitted Friday, June 13, 2008 - 9:33pm [Dine in]

Yep, that's what we found. Monday to Friday, they have a lunch-time buffet for $8.95. Items kept changing...kung pao prawns gave way to pizza slices. Peroigies were replaced bybaked potatoe wedges with cheese. There was a nice salad bar included, also soup (it looked like cream of mushroom today). The starches were rice and chow mein, served with curried chicken, beef ribs, sitr-fry veggies, roasted chicken (good), veggie spring rolls (meh), crispy wings, prawns. By the time we got there, 12:30 or so, the prawns were pretty picked-over, and were not replenished. Still, for $8.95, not a bad spread.

We sampled the house-brewed pale ale, and found it nice, maybe a little 'hoppy".

The room itself was pleasant and clean. There is an outside deck with a bit of a view, and it was packed on a sunny Friday noontime. Service was pretty prompt, and delivery was swift. They have live music on the weekend, but just sports on big screen TV's at lunch.

Overall, a most pleasant pub experience. A nice room, reasonable food and ale.
