Bo Kong Vegetarian Restaurant8100 Ackroyd Road, #80, Richmond
Love it!
Submitted Monday, May 19, 2008 - 11:06am [Dine in]

I really like this place. I've been 3 times, and the food is delicious. I like the wonton soup a lot. I generally get dishes that are similar to lemon chicken and sweet and sour pork. Maybe it's just the things I order, but it seems like the food is probably really really high calorie. So I wouldn't go with someone who was on a diet, because I don't know what they would eat.

The service is great. The staff all pay attention to everyone's table, so you are never without water or tea. Food arrives in 10-15 minutes.

I will definitely go back there more than once.

Unimpressed
Submitted Monday, May 19, 2008 - 11:02am [Dine in]

I have been several times, and I've always been unimpressed. The reason I've been a few times is because I keep hoping I will like it. I feel like there aren't many vegetarian choices, so I've given this place a good shot. But I won't go back.

The food is bland and boring. Just because I'm a vegetarian, I shouldn't have to settle for boring food. I make great food at home, so I know it's possible to make delicious vegetarian food!

I've experienced terrible service here. Once I walked out because it was so bad. To be fair, that was 2 years ago, so I don't know what the situation is like now. The experience was so bad, that I am just not prepared to go back.

The only way I would ever go here again is if there was a change of management, staff, and a complete menu re-write.

Good at certain times

I like the food here. I've been several times. I pretty much always order the Katered Affair. It's $12, and enough for 1.5 people (not quite enough for 2, but much more than I can eat alone).

The service has almost always been friendly, but it's just terribly slow. I don't think it's because the servers are bad, I think it's because they are horribly understaffed at this restaurant, and the servers have too much to do.

I've waited an hour for food to arrive more than once.

I actually don't go there anymore because of the slow service, I just call ahead for take out. I like the food, but I just can't wait 20 minutes to be served, and then an hour for the food to arrive.

I would recommend going if you want a really cheap meal and you have 3 hours to spend on dinner.

Also, the music played in this restaurant is usually rap/r&b, and it's quite loud. It's not like Eminem or 50 cent, it's much more interesting and relevant, but it's still got the same kind of sound. Personally I like it, but my bf can't stand it, and I would certainly never take my parents there.

Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant4530 Hastings St, Burnaby
Very enjoyable experience
Submitted Sunday, May 18, 2008 - 10:13pm [Dine in]

I went to Lalibela for the first time 3 days ago. It was a Thursday night at 9pm, and I was with 2 friends. There was nobody else in the restaurant, so to be honest, I was nervous that maybe that was a bad sign. However, the food and service turned out to be great. I guess it was just a slow night, and it was late to be eating dinner?

Anyway, I ordered the vegetarian combo, my friend ordered the vegetarian combo, and my other friend ordered a single vegetarian dish. Everything was great. The vegetarian combo comes with 6 different items, and lots of Ethiopian bread. The combo was 13.50 I believe, and was big enough for two people, so I had to take some home with me.

The restaurant was clean, nicely decorated and spacious. The person serving us, who may have been the owner, was very friendly. The food arrived about 15 minutes after ordering.

I will definitely go again! I'm so happy this place turned out to be good, because it's really close to where I live.
