Oh Yum! Butter Chicken and Naan!
Submitted Monday, June 4, 2012 - 7:49pm [Take-out]

Definitely FAST FOOD so don't expect 5 star dining, hey? I'm not much into fast food, but Indian cuisine I make an exception for, especially if we are enjoying a couple frosty beverages.

Ordered the large butter chicken to share, which was plenty a couple (guy and gal), and on recommendation of a friend, ordered extra naan - it was delicious and devoured. Best quick butter chicken and naan I've ever had from a takeout place, worth going back for. The guys shared a pepperoni pizza, no complaints there. Thought we'd need the 10 pc tandoori chicken for $10, but were pretty full already so it was dinner the next night...even the next day, was excellent and tasty. Only one issue was the salad that came along with our order, it was basically lettuce and tons of big onions - didn't get touched.

What can I say? 4 of us were stuffed, with leftovers! for less than $50 including a graciously received tip to the delivery driver.

C-Lovers Fish & Chips6640 Royal Avenue, West Vancouver
I'll take the halibut...
Submitted Wednesday, February 8, 2012 - 3:03pm [Take-out]

Mr. B and I missed the 3pm sailing by mere seconds......leaving us with nearly 2 hours on a sunny day to wander around Horseshoe Bay.

Our dog had earlier scarfed our leftover roast beef (intended for sandwiches - we wouldn't want to be tempted by the overpriced offerings on the ferry!) and as we couldn't find a decent deli in the village to replace the meat that the dog had pillaged, we decided on C-Lovers.

Now, I'm not a fish & chips person - I mean I like it, but I tend to avoid deep fried anything - so this is something I'll have maybe once or twice a year, and the only other place I've gotten fish & chips from in the past couple of years is Moby Dick's in White Rock - I always find them to be delicious.

So, back to C-Lovers. I had the dog in tow, so it was up to Mr. B to order. He came out bearing 2 very large paper wrapped packages - a single order of halibut and chips for each of us. I have to admit, it smelled delicious.

Unwrapping our treasures, we discovered more fries than we could handle. Mr. B commented that perhaps he should've ordered a 2 piece as one order of fried would have fed us both quite nicely.

The halibut was really good. The batter was not too thick, the fish was tasty, and wasn't offensively greasy. Mr. B wished for more fish!

The fries, well, they were real potatoes and could have been good but unfortunately were undercooked - so they went right to the trash bin. Yup, nothing worse than a soggy underdone french fry - we must remember to order fries a little on the overdone side! The tartar sauce was disappointing as well. Just a takeout packet - not even a little tub - alongside a lonely packet of vinegar - and only one each! No lemon, salt or pepper to be found in the takeout wrapper....wet wipes and utensils would have been a nice touch - we felt a wee bit abandoned....left out at sea, perhaps?

The halibut was good though! And for under 20 bucks beat the pants off of anything from the boat.

Paul's Sub Shop4608 Imperial St., Burnaby
Do you like meat?
Submitted Sunday, January 29, 2012 - 1:28pm [Dine in]

Rumor has it that the lady who runs Paul's Subs learned the secret recipe from PAUL HIMSELF. My dad says the subs haven't changed ever - and he's been eating these massive meaty monsters since the 70's.

Go there for the one thing that has made them famous - the Paul's Special - a grilled just right, spicy capicolli and steak; or if you're really hungry, try the meatier Super Sub.

Food: Grilled meat subs. They are excellent, meaty, and huge....so huge, my daughter and I usually SHARE a 6"....if you are a big guy, with a big appetite, you may be able to eat a whole 12" in one sitting, but I think that would be pushing it. Don't bother with fries or anything else, they are good - but the portions are really big.

Service: The lady who runs the place is friendly and welcoming. She is efficient, but is usually there alone - so you may have to wait a few if she's busy with orders, tends to get busy at lunch. Don't worry, it's worth the wait. Also, she makes it all fresh to order - so you're going to wait 10 minutes anyways. If you don't want to wait - just call ahead.

Value: Good value for what you get, grilled fresh for you to order - under $10 for a 6" and under $15 for a 12".

Ambiance: If you'd like to sit down, you'll find it's dated but functional - even though it's a bit dark, it's really clean - I don't fear for my health here. Wooden benches, vinyl checkered tablecloths... I think there's a TV, a stack of newspapers to look at while you're waiting, and a video game at the back. The fans are noisy though. We usually take our subs "to go".

I Expected Better
Submitted Monday, December 19, 2011 - 9:30am [Take-out]

Grabbed 3 hot drinks to go from the cafe while on Granville Island yesterday afternoon. It's Granville Island, so of course expect to pay a little more...but also expect decent quality...

Sorry to say the plain coffee (self serve) was mediocre, no different from what I can get at the gas station...adequate, hot and caffeinated.

My daughter ordered a specialty coffee - something with mocha and raspberry - she didn't finish it, although she did love the whip cream and raspberry syrup on top, she stopped when she got to the coffee.

I ordered a no whip mocha, took 2 sips and tossed it in the trash. It tasted old, was nearly cold, the mocha flavour was lacking...kinda tasted like someone mixed instant hot chocolate mix in with leftover re-heatede coffee. I'm guessing that's about what it was.

Totally disappointed for $15.00

There are better places to grab a hot drink on Granville Island.

Jade Rabbit Restaurant1316 73rd Avenue West, Vancouver
Westernized Chinese Take-Out
Submitted Tuesday, December 6, 2011 - 2:48pm [Take-out]

When someone at work has a birthday, the boss springs for lunch for everyone - in our small business that means we get a free lunch pretty much every month! We order take-out from"The Jade" 2 or 3 times a year. I consider it "fast food"; salty, greasy, and sweet - and it's ready for pick up in 15 minutes or less!

They've got a good basic selection, it's not "authentic" asian cuisine....definitely the westernized style with the non-asian palate in mind, totally acceptable for the less adventurous on our staff. We always ask for "no MSG", and find it could be a little less salty, just as one might expect. There aren't too many of these kinds of restaurants around anymore, but I seem to remember growing up in the late 80's pretty much all Chinese food tasted like this.

We just finished our lunch today, and if anything the quality of the food has improved. Everything tasted fresh, was hot and reasonably spiced. We ordered Beef and Broccoli, Ginger Spicy Beef, Chow Mein with Black Bean Sauce, Buddha's Fest Vegetables, Chicken Balls, Sweet and Sour Pork, War Won Ton and a couple other items, about 12 dishes in total. Chicken Fried Rice is free with pick up (just ask), plus they always include lots of sauces, paper plates, forks and spoons.

Service is prompt and friendly, and price is pretty good, our group of 8 today was about $100, and have plenty of leftovers.

Although we do take out, we do go in to pick it up. The decor is kinda retro, but truthfully just more dated, with bamboo walls around the outer tables, and lots of reds, including large red booth seating and campy paper placemats on the tables, and they're licensed. Me? I probably wouldn't eat here myself, I prefer more authentic fare, but it's great for a birthday lunch when the boss is paying!

Won't Return
Submitted Sunday, December 4, 2011 - 1:33am [Dine in]

Have to take back my earlier - and quite positive - review, after the disaster this evening.

Joined a group of about 10 people for a birthday party, and told the waitress it would be easiest to bill each person separately; as some were dining, some drinking, and some were just there...

Upon my arrival, I met our group there, and realized I had an acquaintance there already - he was there with a small group of people from his work. A little later, that acquaintance joined our group when his group left.

Food was decent.

Normally I would think service was adequate, but we were nearly the only group in there - and service was slow. Perhaps the waitress was new?

Ambiance was pub like, prices were typical - dinner for two plus drinks and tip was less than $100

It was after our group had paid the individual bills that the problems started. The waitress first told us that about $100 was unaccounted for. We all reviewed amongst ourselves, we all ordered really different things, and realized that we were all squared up.

Then the waitress claimed one drink and one jug had not been paid for. She could not tell who had ordered the jug, even though we had all ordered different brands, and paid our bills. The manager then came and told us this was a dine and dash and police were to be called. One gentleman paid for the $30, even though it was not his to pay.

We don't know if the waitress billed a patron twice, or if the bill was from one of the people that had left the other table when our party came in.The gentleman that paid it, just paid without question to stop the fuss - even though it was not his to pay.

Given the fact that the waitress could not say whose bill that portion belonged to, along with the fact that our group paid our own bills no problem, we all felt quite disrespected.

Although it's a decent pub, I'll not return, and neither will the other dozen or so people that formed our group - Cedar Cottage just doesn't have it's sh+t together., We're all really turned off.

It's O.K.
Submitted Tuesday, November 22, 2011 - 10:31am [Dine in]

It's a pub - clean and functional, a little dark, and could use some updating - that's why I only gave a mediocre for ambiance. (The tables had beer labels on them, lacquered or plastic coated in.....1980's style) Lots of TV's, would be ok to catch a game.

Fair value - all the pub fare was on par with any other average pub, without the inflated prices. Lunch for 4 with a couple of drinks each was under $80.00.

Service: Our server was friendly and efficient, and attentive, she did quite well considering there was a flurry of people coming in about the same time, and she seemed to be the only waitress on duty. She did apologize for the wait on the food, explaining that all the food orders came in at once, but none of us felt that we had been kept wating, so I expect the food usually comes pretty quick.

Generous portions! I ordered the beef dip, it was tasty, and the bun and au jus came out just right, although not piping hot. I would normally order a salad, but judging by the outdated decor, my expectation was wilted iceberg lettuce and shredded carrot - so I ordered the fries. I wish I'd taken my chances with the salad, as I found the fries a little soggy - I suspect my plate was waiting a bit for my dining companions meals to catch up. They all had fries too, and found them pretty good. I was relieved to discover the food wasn't overly salty!

C and R both ordered fish and chips, and they both thought they were great. The generous portions of fish had the perfect amount, and right kind of batter - not too much, not too thick, not overwhelming the fish.

J ordered a cordon bleu chicken burger, this is not the breaded kind, and he practically inhaled it.....it must hae been good.

We also ordered an assortment of drinks. The Caesars were on special, and they were tasty! Coffee was good, Irish coffee even better, and they had some good beer on tap. We enjoyed a couple of pints of Granville Island Pale Ale, and J ordered a pop too.

All in all, it was pretty good, and we'll return.

Greasy Spoon!
Submitted Saturday, July 16, 2011 - 8:12am [Dine in]

Yes, it's a greasy spoon. Not 5 star dining - but it is a reliable greasy spoon! Not everyone appreciates this type of place - my mom wouldn't set foot in it, but dad loved it!

Expect the food to be of the greasy type! They fry up tasty bacon, eggs, pan fries, sausage, pancakes, french fries...burgers, no trendy meals here! We usually get a breakfast special, love the homemade pan fried potatoes. The food is CHEAP. The trucker special breakfast is under $4.....bacon, eggs, hashbrowns and toast!

The staff are friendly enough, this place if often busy though so be warned you might be waiting a bit. Especially weekend mornings.

As for the ambiance, well, it's a little greasy - what can I say? They keep the tables clean and the dishes washed, I don't fear for my health any more than at any other restaurant. The building is ancient, and it's in a dodgy part of town.

Good if greasy is the cure for your Sunday morning hangover...

Submitted Sunday, March 27, 2011 - 1:43pm [Dine in]

English style pub, we stop in for a lunch on the weekend if we are out that way. Been going there for years, it hasn't changed much.

The food is great, we have never been disappointed. English style pub food.

Servers are friendly, many have been there for years.

Prices are fair, and it's a nice clean little pub. Much better now that smokers go outside!

Had High Hopes Here
Submitted Sunday, March 27, 2011 - 1:39pm [Dine in]

Ah the Village Pub. Had high hopes that things would improve, but sadly find it lacking a little something. Have been here 3 times now.

Typical pub food, wings, burgers etc..lots of deep fried and battered stuff. Not bad, not good either - nothing to write home about!

Service was fast and friendly, and this is a busy little place, catering to the locals.

Prices were fair, around $10 for a meal, the drinks were average, not a lot of selection but it's not that kind of place.

Probably won't go back, unless they get a little more creative with the food!

Not worth another visit
Submitted Sunday, March 27, 2011 - 1:32pm [Dine in]

Looks like a decent pub/restaurant, but looks can be deceiving!

We've gone in a couple of times as this pub is within walking distance, but we've left disappointed each time.

The food is standard pub fare, but is generally poor quality. Ordered pork bites, which we could not eat - some were undercooked, and the cooked ones tasted like they were a week old. Ew. Mr. B likes his beef dip, but this one was mediocre beef dip, chewy beef with not so good french fries. My side salad was soggy iceberg lettuce and shredded carrots - classy.

The server took forever to bring drinks, even though there were only a few tables we felt a little ignored.

Next time we'll keep on walking!

Roman Ristorante3399 Kingsway, #106, Vancouver
Real Food!
Submitted Sunday, March 27, 2011 - 12:55pm [Dine in]

It's honest food. Simple, tasty, delicious.

I loved that the food was made like home, and the portions were huge - I took leftovers and had leftovers from my leftovers! I think our food total came in under $50, we shared a mista salad (delicious) C had a pizza, I had a chicken and pasta entree, and we ordered a small pizza to take home for the kids.

If you think places like Boston Pizza, Cactus Club, Earls are super delicious, you probably won't like Roman. Roman Ristorante is not a "processed food" type of place. I didn't leave feeling like I'd eaten a salt shaker, and I'd bet you won't find msg or anything like that on the premises.

I'm sure that even if this small restaurant is full the service would still be fantastic, we went quite late for supper, we were the only customers and we were well attended to. Both the owner and the server were super friendly and kind of hung out with us. I'm sure some would find that a little awkward, but it was cool! Kind of like we weren't at a restaurant at all.

I'll be going back for sure.
