Terminal Pub, The115 12th St, New Westminster
New look and new clientele -- It's gone upscale
Submitted Saturday, July 23, 2011 - 12:45pm [Dine in]

At one time this was a dump, but new owners have done an impressive job. Now it is a chic pub with a young upscale customer base. Staff is friendly and they have a smart separate area for private parties, plus a patio.

The dry ribs are excellent. My partner's burger was great, but my steak was overcooked. Next time I would order the burger or pulled pork sandwich where overcooking doesn't matter.

They took the price of the steak off the bill as they hadn't cooked it properly which is good customer service.
There is lots of parking at the back, and you reach the pub via Auckland street.

Knot Just Bagels200 Granville Street, #10, Vancouver
The Park and the water view are just outside.
Submitted Tuesday, July 5, 2011 - 10:32am [Take-out]

Okay you are right downtown with cranky children or partners and need a break. This little bagel shop is in the ground floor of the office building at 200 Granville. It is right beside the skytrain station at the foot of Granville, BUT you have to climb up the stairs from street level to reach the building. Bonus -- outside is a little park with grass and places to sit and a view of the water. It just seems very removed from the city hustle and bustle. They make all kinds of bagels. I like the smoked salmon the best. You can get coffee or cold drinks and they pack it all in cute little boxes for your picnic. The Bagels are big so children could easily share one.

They also have a few stools if you want to eat inside.

It's Just OK
Submitted Friday, June 24, 2011 - 9:34pm [Dine in]

First let me say that my partner loves this restaurant and the food, but frankly I don't get it. To me the food is just OK, nothing spectacular. I had the Lamb Josh and really it could have been any mystery meat. You couldn't tell it was lamb. I ordered it with rice and the rice came 10 minutes after the main dish. So you sit there with your meal getting cold while you wait for rice. Really how hard is it for a restaurant to get serving the rice with the main dish correct.

I like my food spicy and I guess because I'm not Indian everytime they try to talk me out of ordering it hot. I insist and it arrives sort of spicy, so-so hot, so I think they refuse to listen and have decided that if you're not Indian then you get your curries mild to medium hot.

We go because he enjoys the food, but I always find the experience kind of annoying.

Perfect for Easter Brunch
Submitted Tuesday, April 19, 2011 - 12:50pm [Dine in]

A friend asked me where to go for Easter Brunch.This is where we go every year. They do a beautiful Easter brunch. Two seatings 10:30 and 12:00. They go all out with both breakfast and Lunch choices. Lots of choices seafood, meat, breakfast items, a carving station, desserts galore. Family friendly with lots of cute kids in their Easter outfits.

It is in the Executive Inn right across from Lougheed mall, so you can get there by skytrain and then you can have a Mimosa. Enjoy. Best to make reservations.

Cafe at Mandeville4746 Marine Drive, Burnaby
Nice Cafe in the Garden centre
Submitted Sunday, April 3, 2011 - 1:37pm [Dine in]

Note the review is actually in the description of the restaurant. It was the first one, so I didn`t set it up correctly, but basically it is a nice cafe in the garden centre. You can combine your plant hunt with coffee, breakfast or lunch or leave your partner there with coffee and pie while you browse the plants.

All Day Breakfast
Submitted Sunday, April 3, 2011 - 1:30pm [Dine in]

This is a good choice for a weekend breakfast. Breakfast is served all day. The food is good and cheap. Service is friendly and attentive. Classic old style Diner at the corner of Hastings and Slocan. The omelets come with hash browns and toast.

Portions are large and you won`t leave hungry. There are lots of regulars who come here and are recognized by the staff which is nice.

Kawawa Japanese Restaurant4700 Kingsway, #E15, Burnaby
Perfect for Metrotown Movie Date
Submitted Sunday, April 3, 2011 - 1:26pm [Dine in]

I'm surprised at the previous poor reviews. Maybe things have improved or maybe we had a good night, but our food was fine. We ordered from the menu rather than the AYCE. All the food was good and service was attentive.

If you are going to a movie at Silvercity Metrotown and want to eat before the show this restaurant is perfect. It is one floor below the Theatres, just down from Winners. Service is fast so you can have dinner in 45 minutes - 1 hour. They also serve beer, wine and sake. The house Dragon sushi rolls are huge and come on a long platter, definately a meal. The menu is very extensive with all the tradiltional Japanese favourtes.

The restaurant is all booths, so that makes it a little more intimate for a mall restaurant and cuts down on the noise. Prices are reasonable.

Burger Heaven Restaurant77 10th Street, New Westminster
Great Burgers
Submitted Thursday, March 31, 2011 - 10:52am [Dine in]

Hands down they make great burgers. This is a tiny local place. Sort of a retro-hippie decor with hanging plants and wooden tables. There is a patio for nicer weather. Service is good. Sometimes there is a bit of a wait for a table.

Their specialty is burgers and if you go then that is what you should have. There are other things on the menu and they make an OK BLT but the burgers are excellent. They come with a large serving of wedge fries. Get the gravy for the fries, it comes in a little bowl over a candle -- the way they do butter for lobster. The gravy stays hot. Portions are large, so most people end up taking some of the fries home. They have a beer/wine license so you can have a beer with your burger.

They have specialty burgers like elk, but you can't go wrong with the classic cheddar, bacon burger.

Gyoza King1508 Robson Street, Vancouver
Great Ambiance , Good Food, Cheap Two dined for $37
Submitted Saturday, March 26, 2011 - 8:10pm [Dine in]

This is a tiny restaurant on Robson. It's a bit of a hike down Robson, but worth it. Sort of a Japanese bistro. You may have to wait a bit as it is small. The food is very good, and cheap. Service is attentive. They seem to have lots of staff. The ambiance is Great. You feel like you are in Japan.

My partner had a large bowl of Don Buri, I had the tuna sashimi, the Chicken karagi, and a bowl of rice. We shared a large bottle of Japanese beer and a plate of Gyoza. The Total bill -- $37. Pretty hard to beat in downtown Vancouver.

Great breakfast Dutch style
Submitted Monday, February 21, 2011 - 12:00pm [Dine in]

This isn't the cheapest breakfast around but the food is great and the staff very welcoming. Try the Dutch Pannekoek . There is usually a special. There are also waffles, Benny's and plain old Big breakfast for those who just want their Bacon and eggs.

It is at the Quay so you can enjoy the sun and walk along the boardwalk afterwards. It is a small restaurant not realy suitable for a big group -- 4 people max.. They also serve lunch, but we usually have the Dutch Breakfast Pannekoek.

They have a few tables outside which are nice on a sunny day.

Lively Pub with Good Food
Submitted Saturday, February 19, 2011 - 4:20pm [Dine in]

Top marks to the staff who are attentive and really seem to know what they are doing. It is a busy and lively place and everyone seems to be having a good time.

The menu is reasonably priced and the food is good and filling. We had the Bangers and Mash and the Steak and Guiness pie. Both were very good. There is an EXTENSIVE Beer and Whiskey menu so you can try something different.

Schanks Sports Grill350 Gifford Street, New Westminster
When you want a Sport's bar -- this is it.
Submitted Tuesday, February 15, 2011 - 12:13pm [Dine in]

When you want a Sport's bar -- to have a drink and a meal and see the game then this is the place. There are TV Screens everywhere -- floor to ceiling size screens. No matter where you sit you can see the game.

Servers are attentive and friendly. The food is a notch above other pubs The Martinis are a bit pricey but they make them well. They also have pool tables and other games. It is kind of a guy hang out, but the night we went there were lots of couples and several large groups of gals having a night out.

It is right next to the casino, so you can always go there after for the live music and slots.

Hon's Wun Tun House408 6th Street, New Westminster
Favorite for Chinese Take-out
Submitted Monday, February 7, 2011 - 2:33pm [Take-out]

Hon's is my favorite restaurant in New West for Chinese take-out. I prefer it to dining in, as they are very busy so when you dine in you feel a bit rushed to sit, eat and leave.

I don't think the menu has changed in 10 years so you find your favourite dishes and stick with them. Try the Beef lettuce wrap, BBQ pork, Deep-fried boneless chicken with crushed almond, Buddhist feast of Vegetables, House chow mein, Dry Garlic spareribs.

Remember to ask if they've included soy sauce, napkins, etc when you pick it up as take-out is always busy and these things sometimes get forgotten.

Needs a Good Cleaning
Submitted Saturday, February 5, 2011 - 8:23pm [Dine in]

This is a little cafe that could be great with a few changes. It needs a good cleaning. The carpet, and lino are 10 years past their best date. The grungy look makes you worry about the state of the kitchen.

The staff is friendly and keep your coffee cup filled. The food is OK. but would be greatly improved by just replacing the frozen fries and hash browns with fresh. Update the menu a little and add a daily special beyond just changing the soup. It seems to be stuck in a 50's time warp.

But they do offer breakfast all day long and the coffee is fresh.

Bao Bei Chinese Brasserie163 Keefer, Vancouver
Great addition to Chinatown
Submitted Friday, February 4, 2011 - 11:28pm [Dine in]

We were going to a movie later and wanted dinner first. This restaurant was recommended to us as it is only about a 10 minute walk from Tinseltown theatres. It opens at 5:30 and there was a line up outside to get in -- waiting for the restaurant to open! It was packed as soon as the doors opened.

We started with cocktails -- they all have a Chinese twist to them which makes them interesting. They come in juice glasses which fits the trendy, bistro atmosphere.

Something must have happened to our food order, lost somewhere in the kitchen. At the 45 minute mark, diners on either side who arrived after us had received their food, but none for us. Our waitress to her credit spoke to her manager who went into the kitchen and knocked heads together or something, because soon food was arriving.

It was all very good. We shared the lamb stew, prawn dumplings, pea shoots and the fried rice. All were excellent.
We would definately return. I put the wait for food down to growing pains of a new restaurant dealing with a packed house. Staff is attentive and friendly.

Lovely Dinner. Great Steaks
Submitted Saturday, January 29, 2011 - 7:06am [Dine in]

Lovely intimate restaurant hidden away in the Sheraton Wall Centre. It is just that extra block off the downtown core that means it isn't busy. So you can go without a reservation. It is a pretty restaurant and the night we went they had live music. We both ordered steaks and they were perfectly cooked. We skipped an appetizer and shared the Chocolate Bundt cake which was also excellent. Watch what you order as the bill can run up on you. Staff is friendly and attentive.

All Day Breakfast
Submitted Sunday, January 23, 2011 - 2:35pm [Dine in]

If you're like us then on the weekends you start later. So we're always looking for places that feature an all day breakfast. This is a small cozy cafe. The all day breakfast is great. You order at the counter but then they bring it to your table. We tried the Big breakfast with eggs, bacon or sausage plus a smokie, and toast and the eggs benny with mushroom and tomato. Both were great and cheap. A definate Find. Service is friendly and they have the daily paper plus magazines you can read while you relax and drink your coffee.

Burgoo3 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
They kept us waiting while a Table sat empty
Submitted Sunday, January 16, 2011 - 12:37pm [Dine in]

We went to this popular Lonsdale restaurant on a Friday night so it was BUSY. We were told it would be a 45 minute wait and we were Okay with that. We sat at the bar and had a drink. The bartender was great. We had an appy and the two of us waited for a table to come free.

Well a table for four came free and they left it vacant. We weren't seated until a table for two came open. I realize this may make better revenue sense for the restaurant but as far as customer service goes it stinks.

Finally we were seated and enjoyed a nice meal. The food is solid and tasty and reasonably priced. We had the Irish Stew and the Beef Bourginon. Good but not spectacular. We enjoyed our evening but I wouldn't rush back because of the business of not seating us when a table came free.

Italian Comfort Food
Submitted Monday, November 15, 2010 - 8:34pm [Dine in]

We always enjoy this restaurant. We were a larger group and sat on the patio. Heaters meant that it was still comfortable although November. The menu is extensive, probably too big but then everyone finds something they llike.

Plates are large and you might not be able to eat it all. The Veal Marsala was very good. The steak was nicely grilled and those who ordered pasta dishes were all happy and full.

Service is excellent with several servers helping out so we all received our dishes at the same time.
Prices were reasonable including wine for the table

It is a nice reliable restaurant, with good food and a relaxed atmosphere.

Ho Hum
Submitted Saturday, November 13, 2010 - 8:09pm [Dine in]

This restaurant changed hands and now has an Irish Pub theme. So we wanted to try it out. They have done it up in an Irish theme and it is now a cozy sports bar. Ambiance is very comfortable.

We ordered the Shepherds pie and the Steak and Guinness pie. Both were good but nothing remarkable. They came as just plain pie on the plate, not a token piece of vegetable or salad. To me it seemed an unfinished dish. The Shepherds pie was also covered with a strong Bovril mix gravy which actually detracted from the dish.

We started with soup and both the corn chowder and the clam chowder were very good.

They need to do a little staff training. Our waitress although pleasant was clueless about the menu. I asked her whether the clam chowder was New England or Manhattan style, white or tomato. She replied she didn't know -- and wasn't going to go find out until I asked her to do so. Then when she brought the entres she announced Shepherds pie and gave that person the steak pie, steak pie and gave me the shepherds pie.

I'd go again but probably just to have a beer and watch the Canucks.
