East is East3243 W. Broadway, Vancouver
Tasting is Believing
Submitted Wednesday, July 13, 2005 - 11:22pm [Dine in]

How does something that looks so nondescript from the outside hold such pleasures within? From your first sip of the complimentary Chai tea to your final bite of roti both East is East and it's sister restaurant upstairs are not to be missed. It is about time that someone got creative with the dining experience in this city and chose to challenge their clientele. My first experience was upstairs at CHAI. From the decor to the subtle touches of garnish on the most incredible snapper, I was in awe.

Tropika2975 Cambie Street, Vancouver
When you don't feel like Indian
Submitted Wednesday, July 13, 2005 - 11:13pm [Dine in]

After frequenting Tropika regularly for over a year I have to say that their quality and consistency is second to none. The speed with which the food arrives at the table is incredible while ensuring that each and every meal is as stupendous as the last. The servers are very friendly, attentive and inviting however, when you have completed your meal it is made obvious that they require you to leave for the next diners and they will usher you out. Overall, a more than positive dining experience with flavours that combine to create unique tasting sensation.

Water Street Cafe300 Water St, Vancouver
Consistently Great
Submitted Wednesday, July 13, 2005 - 6:02pm [Dine in]

My family and i have been going to the Water St. Cafe for years. I recently returned and was pleased to find that things haven't changed. The food is still of a very high quality for very reasonable prices. The menu is varied with great pastas, fish, meat..and wonderful desserts. I would highly recommend the creme brulé. The location is reminisent of a European sidewalk bistro located across from the steam clock in Gastown. I would highly recommend this resetuarant for Vancouverites and tourists alike.

Fiddlehead Joe's Eatery1012 Beach Ave., Vancouver
Overrated
Submitted Wednesday, July 13, 2005 - 5:50pm [Dine in]

This was my first time at this restaurant on the water. The place was packed and the menu looked very enticing. However, I was going to be very disappointed. The service was very slow as there had been an incident with the chef and the sous chef was taking over. The waitress was as friendly and accomdating as she could be. Then there was the food. I am used to small plate sizes and paying for quality not quantity. The quality in this case just wasn't there. I ordered the Yellowfin Tuna and was served two small relatively tasteless peices of fish. There were no vegetables on the side save a few chopped peppers. This for $19. The salad to start a warm spinach with goat cheese was alright but nothing that i couldn't have attempted at home. No one in the company that I was with even commented on their meals which for me is very rare when eating in one of Vancouver's restaurants. If you are looking for much better food. A better view, fabulous service and higher quality all around then I would suggest taking the aquabus over to Bridges on Granville Island. At least there you have parking options.
