My girlfriend and I decided to give Spice Jammer’s a try last night. Before we walked in, I noticed a review by the Times Colonist giving this restaurant praise in 1996. The ambiance in the dining area was decent, but the washrooms and downstairs area were really run down. We ordered butter chicken, maslala vegetables and rice. The food was perfect and very filling. Our server was attentive and friendy. Overall my experience was good and would definitely consider coming back.

Last night, my family and I went to the Wharfside Eatery to celebrate my sister’s birthday. We were greeted by the smell marijuana as one of their cooks smoked under the stairway. We had a great view of the harbour from our table. Unfortunately this was the best part of my experience. I tried to order calamari and barbecued ribs but they were out of barbecued ribs. I ordered the steak and lobster from the “local” menu instead. Our appetizer arrived after 30 minutes and our main courses arrived 25 minutes later. The food tasted decent but was barley warm. The staff seemed disorganized when attempting to bring our food. We were offered fresh pepper 15 minutes after we started our meal. Drinks took up to 30 minutes to be refilled or never arrived at all. After waiting 15 minutes for our waitress to take our payment, I walked over to the manager and had her process my payment. I would never eat there again and it would be a huge mistake to recommend this restaurant.
