Swagat Tandoori Restaurant1726 Davie St., Vancouver
Samosas - To Go
Submitted Monday, July 20, 2009 - 12:29pm [Dine in]

Four of us went to Swagat for dinner last night for their buffet. My sister, who is a vegetarian, recommended this place as it is quite cheap - $9.95 for vegetarian and $11.95 for non-vegetarian. The service was decent - the gentleman who served us was friendly, but seemed a bit forgetful at times. Their draft beer is also cheap at $3.99 a pint.

The majority of the food in the buffet is quite mediocre, although the samosas and the naan were really good. The fact that you don't have to pay extra for the naan was a nice surprise and the samosas, while not part of the buffet, are only $1 each. The lamb was ok, but several pieces were really tough and overcooked. The butter chicken sauce was okay, but the chicken itself was so dry that I practically had to choke it down. When our server asked how everything was, I mentioned the chicken was really dry and he brought me out a fresh bowl from the kitchen. I think the sauce wasn't quite "finished" as it didn't taste like butter chicken sauce - it was bright red and had a really strong tomato flavour. It was okay, but not what butter chicken should taste like. The chicken was much better than what was in the buffet though.

I wasn't sure what some of the other items were, so I tried a little of everything. The sauces were fine, but the rice was blah. The veggie dishes all tasted good, although most of them were really mushy. I'm not sure if that's how they are supposed to be, as I haven't tried many veggie Indian dishes before, but the texture of the actual vegetables is not really to my liking - too overcooked. I had to guess what some of the vegetables were, as they all kind of blended together. The rice pudding they had was awful - I only had a spoonful from my sister's bowl, but it just tasted like stale rice turned into a dessert - terrible. I think that despite being really cheap, I probably would not go back to Swagat. I much prefer the food at India Bistro and will go back there for my next Indian dinner. I think I would return to Swagat only for the samosas - to go.

Boathouse Restaurant, The1795 Beach Avenue, Vancouver
Birthday Dinner / Lobsterfest
Submitted Friday, July 17, 2009 - 4:26pm [Dine in]

This review is a little late, but I can still remember the meal as if it were yesterday.

I went to the Boathouse for my birthday dinner for two reasons - they give you a $25 gift certificate on your birthday for signing up for their email newsletter, and it was Lobsterfest time! I had actually gone to the Boathouse for Crabfest in December and it was amazing, so I couldn't wait to go back for the lobster.

My friend and I ordered the chilled seafood tower - which, at $49.99 is a little steep for an appetizer - but the quality of seafood is top notch. There were oysters, mussels, smoked salmon, jumbo prawns and a selection of sauces, spreads and breads. Wonderful!

For dinner, I chose the steak (tenderloin) & lobster - both were fantastic. My steak was so flavourful and tender that it practically melted in my mouth. My friend chose the stuffed salmon, which he really enjoyed. I tried a bite of it, and found the salmon to be a little overcooked for my liking, but for him it was perfect.

The service was top notch - very attentive and unobtrusive, and friendly without being 'fake'. Water and wine glasses were topped up when appropriate and our server really made the entire evening flow seamlessly. The view really added to the experience and for all these reasons, the Boathouse has always been one of my favourite "special occasion" restaurant choices. I can't wait to head over soon to enjoy 'appy hour' on the patio.

Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House777 Thurlow Street, Vancouver
Another Great Meal at Joe Fortes
Submitted Friday, July 17, 2009 - 4:05pm [Dine in]

I went for a work lunch at Joe Fortes this week and I was again really impressed with the food. There were a few changes I would recommend, but overall it was a great lunch.

There were five of us for lunch, including 2 business associates visiting from France. One of the visitors wanted to try West Coast oysters, so we ordered a dozen to start. Our waiter was knowledgable on the different varieties and we selected 3 to try. They were all really tasty, but I found the larger ones had more of a salty, buttery finish to them.

For my entrée, I opted for the sablefish, which was cooked with a miso, soya type glaze. The flavour was amazing - sablefish is one of my favourites and Joe Fortes always manages to cook it exactly to my liking. The plain, white rice served with the fish was - for lack of a better word - dull. The grilled asparagus was nicely cooked, but the rice really brought the whole dish down a notch or two.

Everyone at the table really enjoyed their meal and we all finished off with coffee or espresso. I have had their creme brulée for dessert on a different occasion, and it has never disappointed.

I love the fresh sheet here, and everything I've ordered has been really good. If they could just do something about the rice, I would rate the meal a little higher.

The value depends on what you order - their price fixe menu is exceptional - for $13.95 you get a choice of 2 dishes (appy/entrée/dessert) and the portions are really good. The prawn linguine seems to be the best value, as it is really filling. The appy & dessert portions are smaller than what the regular menu portions are, but it is still a really good value for your money. They also have a blue plate special every day of the week for $9.95 and it changes frequently.

Overall, it was a great experience and I'll keep going back.

Smiley's Public House911 W Pender Street, Vancouver
Lunch at Smiley's
Submitted Friday, July 17, 2009 - 3:48pm [Dine in]

Some co-workers and I ventured out to Smiley's for a couple of pints and a bite to eat. The special on Friday is a steak sandwich with fries for $10 and import pints for $7 (not the best "deal" since reg. price is $7.25)

The steak was tough, even though it was cooked to my liking (med rare) and it tasted a little dry. With the peppercorn sauce, it was fine so I didn't bother sending it back. The yam fries I substituted were good but a little on the skinny side. Thicker cut fries would provide more 'yam' flavour. The meal was pretty average for pub food and no major complaints. A pint of beer will cost you $5.25 and a pitcher is just over $15 so again, pretty average.

The service was a little on the slow side and our waitress seemed really ditzy. We laughed at how spaced out she was. Really inattentive and just a plain boring personality. We got our food and drinks without major issues, so the service rates a 2 in my books.

The ambiance was probably the best part about it - sort of an old English-style feel to the place - kind of dark but not quite depressing. I will probably go back because it's a convenient location for a work lunch, but I doubt I'd ever go there otherwise.

Gelarmony1222 Robson Street, Vancouver
Great Gelato!
Submitted Wednesday, July 15, 2009 - 6:34pm [Dine in]

I was really craving gelato the other day, so a group of us from work ventured over to Mondo Gelato after lunch at the Thai House.

It had been a while since I was in there, and I forgot how many flavours there are. They now limit your samples to 3 per visit, but I didn't really see a problem with that. They are not there to hand out free gelato all day, they are running a business. There are lots of people who just go in there to get as many samples as they can and then leave, so I don't blame them for imposing a limit. I think you generally know what you want when you are there anyway, and samples are good way to help you choose if you are really undecided or have just never tried a certain flavour before. Anyway, I digress.

The servings are pretty good for the price you pay, especially when compared to somewhere like Marble Slab, where it's over $5 for a single scoop.

I'm glad Mondo Gelato is close to my work - it's a nice treat on a sunny afternoon and I'll go back again and again. :)

Denny's1098 Davie Street, Vancouver
Good Breakfast
Submitted Wednesday, July 15, 2009 - 6:22pm [Dine in]

I occasionally go to Denny's when I'm craving bacon & eggs on a lazy weekend. I met up with my sister and my nephew for our pancake fix on a Sunday afternoon and we all had a pretty good meal.

I've been to this Denny's a number of times before and I have to say that the service is usually MUCH better than on this occasion. Our server was clumsy (spilled hot water on me), forgetful (had to ask 3 times for a drink) and all-around ditzy (no tea bag with my hot water).
Thank goodness he had the assistance of others, or we might not have gotten our food.

When the food arrived, everything was really good - eggs cooked to order, bacon crispy, pancakes fluffy, hashbrowns seasoned. The only complaint at the table was my sister saying she could taste meat in her veggie omelette (she's a vegetarian) but she said it was likely just from the fact it was cooked on the same grill as sausages - still good and everything else was fine.

I think Denny's is a great place to go for breakfast - have never had anything else here, so I can't really say much for lunch or dinner offerings, but the breakfast rarely disappoints.

Camay Wok1055 W Georgia, #228, Vancouver
Good Won Ton Soup
Submitted Tuesday, July 14, 2009 - 3:14pm [Dine in]

I usually head over to Camay Wok when I'm craving won ton soup. It's in the food court at Royal Centre, so it's usually really busy at lunch time.

My soup of choice is the BBQ pork & won ton soup, with bok choy and a fairly decent portion of pork. It sometimes has some broccoli and carrots in it - I guess it depends on the chef, as it's not always the same.

Their prices have recently gone up, but they are on par with all the other food court places so it's tough to complain. For a big bowl of the BBQ Pork & Won Ton soup, it's now $7 - I'm usually full after I'm done eating, so I guess it's worth the money. Service is decent, but they are not very friendly - they rarely smile. I guess they are just busy and trying to serve everyone efficiently, so no complaints.

Creekside Restaurant1335 Howe Street, Vancouver
Decent Meal
Submitted Tuesday, July 14, 2009 - 2:58pm [Dine in]

I've eaten here a few times because it's close to home and they have coupons in the Entertainment book. This is not a place you go expecting fine dining, as it is pretty much a casual hotel bar restaurant. If you are looking for/expecting something on the fancier side, you will be slightly disappointed.

The service is decent, as there is usually only one person working - serving as both bartender and server. If it's not busy, there is never a problem. If it is busy, usually a small wait, but even so, I've never had a problem here - nothing forgotten, nothing wrong. They do a good job even when busy.

Last time I went, I had the halibut - it was tender and flaky, served piping hot with a "buerre blanc" type sauce with baby shrimp over rice or mashed potatotes (my choice) and a good-sized serving of veggies - broccoli and carrots, both steamed to perfection.

The calamari I shared with my sister as an appy was actually really good and very tender - not rubbery, which was really nice. My only complaint was that it was an awfully small serving and not really meant as a sharing plate. My sister had the halibut burger with fries, which she really enjoyed.

We shared half a litre of wine, and after the coupon discount, for everything it was about $50, which is almost unheard of downtown.

My other favourite dish here is the canneloni - which I highly recommend if you like cheese! It's practically smothered in cheese before being baked, and served with a side caesar salad for about $15. Pretty decent and really quite tasty.

I will keep going back.

Big City Cupcakes1015 Howe Street, Vancouver
Over-priced, Over-rated
Submitted Tuesday, July 14, 2009 - 2:16pm [Dine in]

Big City Cupcakes just opened up a new location at the corner of Howe & Nelson. The appearance of the cupcakes is pretty enticing, with all the cupcake pictures splashed all over the windows, but I'm sad to say that the value nor the flavour is anywhere close to what I expected.

Apparently they have 2 options of cupcakes - filled or unfilled. I chose the Lemon Drop cupcake, which was in the filled category. It has some type of lemon curd filling inside. It was really pretty, with a big mound of lemon cream icing on top. As the girl behind the counter (very friendly) selected one for me and brought it to the till, she said, "that will be $4.15 please." I just about fell over!! $4 for ONE cupcake?!? Yes, it's true. Well, I thought it would be a special treat and took it home. I am very disappointed to say that it did not live up to my expectations - sure, it was tasty, but nothing outstanding and certainly NOT worth $4. I think I could find something just as good at any grocery store bakery department for a fraction of the cost. I won't waste my money there again.

India Bistro1157 Davie Street, Vancouver
Great Service, Outstanding Food
Submitted Monday, July 13, 2009 - 6:45pm [Dine in]

From the moment we walked into the India Bistro, we felt very welcomed and the service was very attentive. When I asked about the lamb dishes, the manager asked questions about what I liked and made a fantastic recommendation based on my answers.

We started with the samosas, which although quite small, were packed with flavour and served piping hot. The accompanying sauce was a fantastic complement to the samosas.

For our entrées, we chose the butter chicken and the lamb methi. I've had butter chicken many times before and this was one of my favourites. I think it could have had a few more pieces of chicken, but the portion was still quite generous. I noticed the dishes actually have little tealights under them to keep the food warm - a great idea - you can enjoy your meal at a decent pace without the food going cold.

The lamb methi is now a new favourite of mine - the lamb itself was very tender and flavourful, and the curry & garlic sauce was outstanding. The basmati rice was very nice, seasoned with spices - a welcome change from standard fare (plain rice). I also really liked the garlic naan which was served warm and packed with garlic.

I will definitely come back here to try a few more of their dishes.

Urban Thai Bistro1119 Hamilton Street, Vancouver
Delicious
Submitted Monday, July 13, 2009 - 6:03pm [Dine in]

This was probably my tenth visit to Urban Thai Bistro and will definitely not be my last. The food is delicious and such a good value - especially if you have an Entertainment book!

My friend and I shared the appetizer thai spring rolls and then a couple of entrées - the House Seafood Combination, which consisted of grilled tiger prawns, clams, mussels, fish filet and squid served with green curry sauce in a foil wrap, as well as Gai Pad Ma - a boneless chicken dish with cashews and roasted chillis. They both had just the right amount of spice for those of us who like spicy food! The biggest 'test' for me is whether or not the squid is cooked properly, as it can get quite rubbery if overcooked. The squid here was perfect and the portions of seafood are very generous.

The coconut rice was cooked nicely and there was plenty of it. Even though we ate quite a lot, there was still enough left over for lunch the next day. I will keep coming back.

Falafel King1105 Davie Street, Vancouver
Best Shawarma Plate... so far
Submitted Tuesday, June 30, 2009 - 6:57pm [Dine in]

Okay, granted I've only had shawarma at about 4 or 5 other places in Vancouver, but the Falafel King on Davie Street is the best I've had yet. Each time I've gone there, the food has been fresh, the portions very generous, cheap and very tasty.

I've only ever had the shawarma plate, so I can't speak to the quality of other menu items, but what I have had has always been very good. The chicken is microwaved, yes, but it's never been dry or overcooked in my experience. Maybe I'm just lucky, who knows. The tabouleh is great, the hummus very tasty and the service has always been really good. It's tough to complain about the pita, but they buy it in, so not much to say about it anyway.

For under $7 I think it's an outstanding value as I've always been full after eating a shawarma plate here (sometimes I can't even finish it). The staff has always been really friendly and smiling when I go - unlike other similar places where they act like they're doing you such a huge favour by putting food on a plate for you.

All in all, I highly recommend this place if you're looking for a good cheap meal on the fly.

Marble Slab Creamery1184 Denman Street, #103, Vancouver
Not worth the wait
Submitted Tuesday, June 30, 2009 - 6:31pm [Dine in]

I went to Marble Slab after dinner one night mostly because I had a 2-for-1 coupon in my Entertainment Book. (I'm all about the discounts!) The line up outside was insane, but I started to have a serious craving for ice cream and thought I would wait it out. My friend stayed with my dog outside while I braved the line up.

After about 10 minutes in line, I was actually inside the door. Crazy. Another 10 minutes goes by before getting to place my order. When I did place my order, it turns out they had run out of the flavour of ice cream (sweet cream) I asked for. The server said it would be a few minutes until the new tub was soft enough to serve. I paid for the ice cream and waited for my order. Almost another 10 minutes and I was ready to just say forget it, when the server makes eye contact with me and says it's ready.

When I got my cone, sure it tasted good, but worth a half hour wait? Not a chance. I do like the idea of mixing in toppings into ice cream, but to be honest, if I didn't have a coupon, I don't think I would have paid that much for a cone. I was in Whistler last weekend and had a cone there (2 scoops that were actually 3) in a huge waffle cone for $5.50 - and NO wait. Definitely worth it. Marble Slab? notsomuch.

I suppose if you really like ice cream and you love the concept of all the toppings mixed in then it's probably a great place to go for a once in a while treat. Otherwise, I would say go to Dairy Queen for a blizzard or try any other ice cream/gelato place in Vancouver and save some time & money.

Kimono Japanese Restaurant869 Hornby Street, Vancouver
Good Lunch Spot
Submitted Friday, June 26, 2009 - 1:26pm [Dine in]

I went to Kimono for the first time yesterday with a friend who frequents the place on a regular basis. The menu is huge (5 pages) and the list is quite extensive. I wanted to try something different, so I opted for the Kimono seafood udon soup with tempura for $8.95. My friend had a vegetarian bento box and the portions were surprisingly big for lunch. When she asked to substitute something in her bento box, there was no protest, only the mention of an additional charge, which was acceptable.

Everything was very tasty & hot and service was prompt. The staff came by often to fill our tea cups and we didn't have to ask for anything.

Overall, I thought it was pretty good and I would go back to try their other unique offerings.

A friend invited me to lunch this week and we met up at Urban Sushi. I'd never been before, but the food looked good and seemed popular. We couldn't get a table until we ordered apparently, so one of us sat down while the other ordered.

I had a combo (D?) which was nice but nothing impressive. Food was decent. My friend had salmon sushi and udon soup and both looked good, decent portions. I'd say for the cafeteria-style ambiance, I would pass this place over and not bother going back. There are literally hundreds of sushi places in the downtown area for lunch, and I would likely venture elsewhere to avoid waiting in line for average food.

Nuba207B West Hastings Street, Vancouver
A Turkish Delight
Submitted Friday, June 26, 2009 - 12:28pm [Dine in]

I had heard mixed reviews about Nuba, but was looking forward to trying it out. I went with a group of 4 other people and we decided to start out by getting a few appies (mezze) to share. We chose a few cold plates - the baba ghanooj, hummus, labneh (fresh-pressed yogurt with spices & olive oil) as well as a hot mezze - sautéed eggplant with Lebanese ratatouille (my favourite!). Unfortunately one dish was forgotten by our server so we did not have a chance to try the mjadra (green lentils & rice with onions & jalepenos). We also started with organic apple sangria - I think everyone really enjoyed it. The apple flavour was spiced and very intense - almost like fresh pressed apples. Wonderful!

For the entrée, I chose the lamb chops with taboulleh & hummus and for my side, I chose the roasted potatoes. I thought everything was quite delicious and very well-seasoned. The lamb was cooked exactly as ordered (med rare) and was exceptionally tender. Other entrées at the table were the rainbow trout (last-minute substitution was perch) served with salad and sides of taboulleh and creamy tahini rice (not my favourite). Others in our group shared a few more appies in lieu of an entrée and said that the falafel and the chicken tawook were not only quite filling, but very good.

Even though we were all quite full, we thought the experience would not be complete without at least tasting a few Lebanese desserts. Between us, we tried the baklava, the pistachio cookies (yummy!), the tiramisu and a cardamom custard served brulée style. I don't think anyone liked the custard, as the execution in the brulée caused the custard to become somewhat runny and warmed up the spices in the custard - I found the flavour quite overpowering for a dessert. The star of the evening was the tiramisu made with Turkish coffee. The flavour was incredible. I would go back for this alone, but I thought the entire meal was very good and I would love to back and try a few more dishes.

There are quite a few vegan/vegetarian dishes available and everything is very fresh and well prepared. The ambiance is really nice and we all enjoyed our evening at Nuba.

Coco Rico Cafe1290 Robson St., Vancouver
Average at Best
Submitted Friday, June 26, 2009 - 11:31am [Dine in]

I had lunch with a friend at Coco Rico last week as I had a coupon in my Entertainment book. I had walked past here several times (in the evening), and it seemed to be quite popular.

On this occasion, however, the place was empty when we arrived. We opted to sit outside, since the weather was quite nice and it was warmer outside than inside. My friend and I both chose the smoked salmon pasta, which was served with garlic toast. I requested that my meal be made without dill, and they were happy to accommodate. This also shows me that the creamy dill sauce on the pasta is not pre-made. Surprisingly, pre-made sauces are a common occurrence in some restaurants.

We didn't have to wait very long for our meal and when it arrived, it looked as expected. The flavour was decent, but as the title says - average at best. I found the prices to be okay ($13 for the pasta) and with the coupon it was even better. But for my money, I probably wouldn't go back here without a coupon. Maybe next time, I would go in the evening as it was quite boring at lunch with an empty restaurant.

Just Okay

My friend and I went to Don Guacamoles for lunch this afternoon. When we arrived, we noticed an empty table outside and gladly scooped it up before anyone else could. Fortunately, the weather was a bit milder today and not too hot - almost perfect for outdoor dining.

After browsing the menu for a minute, a waitress came by to take our drink order. We both just had water, which arrived promptly along with a tray of chips with various sauces and salsa, all of them very tasty. The service was good, but the waitress was almost unfriendly - no smile, no personality evident.

We placed our order and the food arrived without much of a wait. It was good, but really nothing special. I thought my sopes lacked flavour, which I remedied by adding a few spoonfuls of salsa and hot sauce to it. It wasn't bad, but it just didn't have much flavour, which I expect from Mexican food.

I think I'll check out one of Vancouver's many other Mexican restaurants before I go back to Don Guacamoles.

Nyala4148 Main St, Vancouver
Flavourful Food!
Submitted Thursday, May 28, 2009 - 7:27pm [Dine in]

It's been about a month since I went to Nyala for dinner, but I clearly remember the food and how delicious everything was. I was with a group of people for our monthly Dine Out but I arrived a bit later than everyone else. A few people had ordered appetizers already and from the general chatter around the table, everyone was enjoying the food.

The server was very friendly and helpful in recommending something to my liking. I ended up choosing the prawn dish, which had about 9 prawns served with saffron rice, onions and peppers in a piri piri sauce in a clay pot. It was piping hot and smelled fantastic when the lid was removed. The dish was about $23 but it was more than enough to fill me up, and probably would have been enough for two less-hungry people. You also get a serving of tabouleh and lentil salad with African style bread (can't remember what it's called) to go with your meal.

I noticed that other dishes were extremely small compared to the dish I had, so I would probably check with a server to see how the portions are before ordering. I was quite hungry and would have been disappointed to have had one of the smaller dishes, which were all between $16-$23 for meat or seafood dishes and about $12-$14 for vegetarian.

I really enjoyed my experience at Nyala and will definitely go back.

Reef, The4172 Main Street, Vancouver
Pretty Average
Submitted Friday, May 22, 2009 - 7:26pm [Dine in]

I went to the Reef on Main with a group of friends, wanting to try Carribean food for the first time. All in all, I would say I left feeling just slightly disappointed. I was expecting a lot more flavour in the food. While some dishes were pretty good, others were quite bland.

We started with some drinks and appies - the Jamaican Beef Patty, Coco Prawns, Island Crab Cakes and Plantain Chips. The Patty was good, but I found the mango chutney was really overwhelming - I couldn't taste much other than the cloves in the chutney. The coco prawns were pretty average, but the crab cakes were delicious. I thought the curry might be too strong for the crab, but it was wonderfully balanced. The Plantain chips were good, but not a whole lot of flavour except in the jerk mayo - it was so good that one of the people in our group actually used her finger to get every last bit of it out of the little dish.

To drink, I had the Jamaican Dragon Stout, which is apparently exclusive to the Reef. It's a smaller bottle of beer - 300ml - but it's 7.5% alcohol. Despite that, I didn't really feel that it was "too" strong of a beer, as it is very flavourful and I really enjoyed it.

For my entrée, I had the Ackee & Saltfish served with rice & coleslaw. When I got my plate, I thought there was a mix-up, because it looked like an omelette with green peppers and onions. In fact, it actually tasted like an omelette. Not a lot of flavour other than slightly salty, but I couldn't even tell that I was eating fish - it looked and tasted too much like eggs - I know, weird! The rice was bland so I put some of their hot sauce on it (very good stuff) but the coleslaw was quite nice, as it was not made with mayo. Very light tasting and a nice complement to the rest of the meal.

I should have gone with the Mahi Mahi. Two people at my table had that, and I got to try a little bit. Very nice flavour, nicely cooked and a good sized portion. If I go back, I will have that or maybe try the Oxtail, as it's not a common menu item and I'm curious to see what it would be like.

I would have liked to have had dessert, but I had to leave early and didn't have time. They only have one item for dessert, which is fried bananas with ice cream.

If I did go back, I'd probably stick with appies and drinks, but I think I would try another Carribean place before going to the Reef again.
