Pho Chung Nam522 6th Avenue, New Westminster
Great spot for take-out
Submitted Wednesday, September 7, 2011 - 11:16am [Take-out]

We order take out from here quite a bit. They are great on the phone and always have our order ready in about 10-15 minutes. If I order take out while I am in the restaurant the server always offers me free tea.
They tend to not put chopsticks in with the take out, so if that's imporant to you remeber to ask.

We always get the Vermicelli noodles, and we haven't had a bad meal yet.

A great cheap find for good Vermicelli in New West. I can't comment on dining in, but the ambience is a bit lacking, so we just get take-out.

A hidden gem
Submitted Monday, June 20, 2011 - 10:14am [Dine in]

I went here for a birthday party, before that I didn't know it existed. In a neighbourhood that is "up and coming" I finally found it.
The decor is simple and warm. The music? hmm..not too sure I like it, but that was the only problem I had. The service was fanstastic and the food was amazing. Gluten free bread and chicken, lamb, beef and vegitarian options are available.

I got the veggie variety dish. It had 5-6 different kinds of vegetables, ie, lentils, chickpeas, etc. It was amazing and filling, and the price was right at $11.

I can't wait to go back!

mmmm...sushi!!
Submitted Monday, May 30, 2011 - 10:27am [Dine in]

We've driven by this place loads of times, but finally we went on Saturday to try it.
The dining room is wide open and airy. The seats have club chairs and love seats, super comfy! Views of the river are also great.

Service was prompt and efficient.
The bathrooms were clean (something I always look for)

The food. I can't say enough great things about the food. First of all, they use REAL crab in their rolls. There are some that use imitation crab, but everything is clearly labelled on the menu.
Large selection of specialty rolls and lots of different combos to choose from.
We had gyoza, tempura, salmon shashimi (huge portions), three specialty rolls and 3 beers and the cost was under $60. Great value and great food!!

We will be back. :-)

Royal Tandoori Indian Restaurant83 6th St, New Westminster
Great food, but...
Submitted Tuesday, November 23, 2010 - 10:31am [Dine in]

I guess this is typical of a lot of Indian restaurants I've been to, great food, but poor service.
The food here is great, but be warned the dishes do not come with rice, you have to order that separate.
We had chicken curry and alu gobi with roti bread, yummy!

We had an entertainment coupon which made the price reasonable, but it is quite expensive.

The ambiance, pretty blah. But this places does mostly takeout.

All in all good food for a cold winter night.

If you have food allergies this is the place for you!
Submitted Wednesday, November 17, 2010 - 1:07pm [Dine in]

This is one of my favourite places to go when I visit Calgary. They cater to many different kinds of food allergies. There are wheat free, dairy free, onion and garlic free options, raw food options, vegan, vegetarian, etc.

The menu is done up in a really cool way and the cafe is super cute.

The servers there are great and they are well trained in the menu and suggestions for different allergies, preferances, etc.

Go check it out!!

Dublin Castle319 Governors Court, New Westminster
Pub Night in New West
Submitted Monday, November 8, 2010 - 1:52pm [Dine in]

My friend and I went to Dublin Castle for dinner.
We got there and the place was packed! However the manager/owner was super nice to us and offered us to get a drink at the bar to put on our tab.
We were seated as soon as there was a table open and throughout the night we had great service, everyone there was so friendly!

The food. It arrived in a timely manner and it was really good. I had the Fiesta chicken sandwich and my friend had the Seafood salad. Both recommended.

The ambiance. It's quite small in there and it was full, so it was pretty crowded. It's Irish theme everything. I was hoping that they would keep some of the history of the place regarding the old penitentary (if you've ever been to the Winking Judge on Burrard, kinda like that). Oh well.
There was a big mix of age groups there and everyone seemed to be really enjoying themselves. But I'll warn you if you're running a bit younger in age and looking for a place to party, this pub really doesn't seem like the place for you.

All in all a great experience and we will be back!

Not returning.
Submitted Thursday, November 4, 2010 - 1:34pm [Dine in]

I went here close to lunch time by myself on a weekday. I was told by the girl at the counter that I wasn't allowed to sit at a table and that I had to sit at the counter facing the window because I was there by myself and she didn't want me taking up a table in case other people came. Really? And just to point out, the tables that I wasn't allowed to sit at never got filled.

My panni was alright, like the poster below me said, it was premade and they just heated it up.

The food was pretty good, a bit pricey, but the bad attitude is why I won't be coming here again.

Angelina's960 Quayside Drive, #115, New Westminster
Good food, slow service
Submitted Tuesday, October 19, 2010 - 10:10am [Dine in]

Went for brunch on a nice sunny Sunday. The place is cute and done up in blue and white. The service started out good, but quickly went to poor. We waited for an hour for our food and coffee refills were hard to come by.
The food was really good, but I guess I will try and come here when it first opens so that I'm not starving by the time I get my food.
We went for a nice walk on the Quay boardwalk afterwards, this restuarant is in a great location.

Who would have thought??
Submitted Wednesday, September 22, 2010 - 10:47am [Dine in]

This pub used to scream scuzzy and I wouldn't go anywhere near it. Then I saw that they were renovating it. hmm...maybe it's time to try it out.
So my b/f and I went there for dinner one night. The place looks amazing! A huge fireplace, a great bar, and railway ties which was a nice touch.
There was also live music that night, a girl playing an acoustic guitar. Very nice.

Service was a little hit and miss, we had to wait quite a while for our bill, but our server was very nice.

Food was really good. The menu is still quite limited, but there's the standard pub fare on it. I had a burger and fries and my b/f had the fish and chips. The fish and chips were done in a Rickard's White batter, I had a taste and that's what I'll be ordering next time. It was so big that he couldn't finish the whole thing. My burger was very tasty and the fries were crisp and yummy.

Next time we're in that part of town we'll head on over.

My b/f and I went to go here for breakfast Saturday morning as we often do, only to find a closed for business sign. What? It's unfortunate to lose a good breakfast place in New West, especially when they have AMAZING cinnamon buns.
The staff were always friendly, the coffee was good and the food was yummy. The ambience was a little blah, but hey it's just breakfast. I'm really sad to see this place out of business.
The search for good breakfast continues....

Good little pub
Submitted Monday, June 7, 2010 - 11:13am [Dine in]

We went here Sat afternoon to sit on the patio then shoot some pool.

The patio:
Pros: cute with palm trees and in the back away from street traffic.
Cons: The patio has a smoking section. yuck!

The food:
I had a burger, and they had a special on $10 for a burger and a beer. Great deal! I have a gluten intolerance, so they offered for my friend to have the beer instead, I had the burger with no bun. It was good and the bbq sauce was tasty.

If you like beer you're in luck at this place, they have a huge beer selection and my friends were very happy about that.

Our server was great, on top of things and very friendly.

I'll be back to shoot pool, have a drink or two and enjoy the palm trees on the patio.

Cravings Restaurant + Lounge8808 Osler Street, Vancouver
Too bad the service was terrible.
Submitted Monday, June 7, 2010 - 11:03am [Dine in]

We went here for a friend's birthday party. We had a reservation for 20 people. When we showed up they had given our tables away and we had to wait at the bar for 30min. When they did have a table for us it wasn't for 20 people. Myself and a 5 other people ended up having to sit at a different table from the birthday girl.

Finally we got to order drinks and food. My martini wasn't very good and another person said that they didn't like their either. What a waste of $8.50.

The food. I had the squash salad with chicken, it was so good! The rest of my small table had the ribs and they really enjoyed them.

For dessert I had the gluten-free chocolate cake, and it was really good.

For the whole dinner the service was spotty and they seemed annoyed that we were there.

The food was really good, but marapole is out of the way for us and bad service and medicore martinis means that we're not going back. Too bad.

Go for the drinks not the food
Submitted Thursday, May 27, 2010 - 9:10am [Dine in]

A few of us went for coffee last night to this Waves location. I was hungry so I had the veggie pannini. It took forever for them to heat it up and when I got it, it tasted a bit stale and lifeless. My friend got a muffin and she said it tasted stale.
The drinks were great, so I will be back for a tea or a latte but not for anything to eat.

Why isn't there one of these in Vancouver?
Submitted Tuesday, May 25, 2010 - 10:10am [Dine in]

We saw an ad for this place on our Victoria map, and being tired after a long day of sight seeing we decided to get delivery to our hotel room.

This place is awesome. They have vegan cheese, soy cheese, gluten free and wheat free crusts, and vegan desserts.

We got a gluten free crust, vegan cheese, veggie pizza and it was great. We also had a homemade lemon/raspberry vegan dessert and it was so yummy.

Delivery was a little slow, but to be fair there was about 2 dozen marching bands in the area and they were all ordering pizza too.

Can't wait to have this when we go back!

A mixed bag
Submitted Tuesday, May 25, 2010 - 10:04am [Dine in]

We went to this pub specifically to go up to the roof top surf patio.
We weren't allowed to go in, the hostess told us that they were changing servers over from the day to night shift so they weren't letting anyone in for at least 1/2 hour. What?
Well, we were hungry and we needed to catch the ferry, so we went to the downstairs portion.

Our waitress asked us if we wouldn't rather go to the upstairs patio and we then explained what happened. She was upset and told us that she would be speaking to them later.
As stated we were in a hurry to catch the ferry and our waitress was awesome. She went and got BC Ferries number for us so we could call and see if there was an 8pm sailing or not. There wasn't, so she put a rush on our food and got us our bill promptly.

The food. I had a bison burger with pecan crusted goat cheese. It was fabulous, cooked perfectly and I really enjoyed it despite being in a bit of a rush.

Maybe next time we'll try to get into the surf patio a little earlier in the day.

Great spot for lunch
Submitted Tuesday, May 25, 2010 - 9:59am [Dine in]

We went for lunch here on Saturday while we were visting Victoria.
We sat out on the patio in Bastion Square, it was a wonderful atmosphere, I felt like I was in Quebec City or even a street in Europe.

Our waitress was very attentive and did a great job.

We had the veggie pizza with pesto, spinach, artichokes, red peppers and goat cheese, mmmmm.....it was so tasty! Our Calimari was ok, a little rubbery and I've had better.

All in all it was a great little stop for lunch and next time we're over on the island we'll be sure to make a stop.

Sandbar Seafood Restaurant1535 Johnston Street, Vancouver
Special Occasions only
Submitted Monday, May 17, 2010 - 10:55am [Dine in]

I went to Sandbar for a birthday party this past weekend. There were 18 of us. The servers were very attentive, and they answered lots of questions about the menu for us. I find the menu a bit limited, but you are there for seafood so I don't expect a lot of different menu options outside of that.
Everyone seemed pleased with their food and I found my salmon was very good.

The ambiance is great, Granville Island, water, the interior is nicely decorated. The only complaint that we had was that it was quite loud in there and we had trouble hearing people talk.

This is a great place for a speical occasion but with the prices on the menu I won't be a regular here.

Good cheap breakfast
Submitted Monday, May 17, 2010 - 10:44am [Dine in]

We go to the Arms when we want a good cheap breakfast from 11-2pm on weekends. The ambiance is rough at best but if you can't get past the people smoking in front of the door and the horrid decor, then a good breakfast awaits you.
The service here is fantastic and you can't go wrong with a $5 breakfast. We'll be back for many more breakfasts here.

Great service means we're headed back
Submitted Friday, May 14, 2010 - 2:47pm [Dine in]

A group of us went here for after work drinks on a Friday night. It's a little weird heading down to the basement, but we ventured on.

The service at this pub was awesome, they were very friendly and the service was prompt and very reliable. They billed us all separately, which is nice, I don't like when pubs bill everyone together, it gets messy.
We ordered a bunch of different appys and they were all yummy.

The only thing that I had a problem with was the lack of patio space for the summer.

We will be going back for sure!

Best Patio downtown Vancouver
Submitted Tuesday, May 4, 2010 - 2:35pm [Dine in]

I love coming to the Art Gallery for lunch. It's usually quite busy, but we also get a table on the fantastic patio. The patio has white table clothes, classical music playing and a lovely feel of being in a garden oasis in the middle of the city.
The food is cafeteria style and one day I'll remember to get my tray before lining up! The food is always good and I am always tempted to get dessert (haven't broken down yet!). Today I had a samlon salad and it was very good. The prices are a bit steep, but the patio makes it worth it.

A place I will continue to go for lunch when I need a tranquil moment outside of the office.
