North Garden Restaurant3355 North Road, #286, Burnaby
Good food makes up for other stuffs.
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 9:12pm [Dine in]

This restaurant is nothing to look at. Bare decor and cheap furnitures. The same feel as a cafeteria. Service was so so. Never really ask if we want more tea even when our glasses are empty. So don't expect better service when you go.

The food on the other hand is mostly very good. I say mostly because their curry dish is clearly using instant curry. Not good at all. Other than that the fried noodle, the fried rice, the honey garlic ribs are all very good. Way beyond expectation. They have a very impressive menu as well. Next time i would have to try their seafood items.

Oh the milk tea, not that good.

Very good for a pub.

This pub surprised me with how good their food is. The portion is pretty big too. Chicken wings are pretty darn good also. Had their pasta and let me tell you that for a pub, their pasta are better than some italian restaurant.

The service is quite good. Nothing special but nothing bad. The prices are cheap compared to restaurants. Overall this is one of the better pub for food. Definitely going back.

Boathouse Restaurant, The14935 Marine Drive, White Rock
Food doesn't match the price.
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 7:16pm [Dine in]

Went for lunch a few months ago at this restaurant. The boathouse is pretty well known so i expect to have enjoyable food. Especially for them to charge what they charge, it better be enjoyable food.

Sadly i was wrong. The food was only so so. Not bad as in not ateable but just too average for the price. I mean, i could walk down to the restaurant next door and get the same thing for alot less.

The one good thing that this restaurant has is awesome view of the water. But i pay to have food so we haven't gone back since and probably never will.

Hard to go wrong with this one.
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 6:50pm [Dine in]

Used to frequent this restaurant but now the distance makes it hard to be a regular.

The food is very consistent. Taste the same 9 times out of 10. This is one of the few chinese restaurant that has good soup as part of their meals. Most just give watered down broth as part of a combo.

They are very good with their wok cooking. Fried rice, fried noodles, they taste awesome. Noodle soup however, not so much. Hainanese chicken rice taste like it suppose to be. Very authentic on that one.

Their drinks are awesome as well. One of the best milk tea around.

Good but not great.
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 6:43pm [Dine in]

Been to this restaurant a few times. The food is always good but the service is hit or miss. We've gone as a big group or just as a couple. Even if you have a reservation, they don't always honoured it as it is normal that you have to wait 45 minutes to get your table.

The hot pot is good. A bit on the spicy side. Love their lamb hot pot with vegetables. The value is only decent because it is easy for a table of two people to clear 50 just on food alone.

Very good as always.
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 6:31pm [Dine in]

This is one of the restaurant that we keep going back. The food is consistently good, the service is always warm and friendly, the price might be a bit on the high side but you do get what you paid for.

My fav on the menu is definitely the jack daniel ribs. They are so tender that you won't even need to use your knife. Their butternut squash ravioli is also very good. A bit on the rich side but the taste is very balance and leaves you wanting more.

One thing that is a tad on the negative side is they don't change their menu often. There may be a new dish or two but everything stays the same. Need more variety.

Good soup and rose sauce.
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 4:59pm [Dine in]

The food is pretty good but now the menu is getting kinda boring.

We find ourselves ordering the same thing everytime because there are just not enough interesting items on the menu to change our minds. Their pasta with rose sauce and the smoke salmon dunker are delicious.

Ask for their daily soup. Most of the time they have awesome tasting soup.

Would go back.
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 4:51pm [Dine in]

Went to this restaurant last week with my gf. Very nice and friendly staffs. Service is very prompt and attentive. The restaurant is new. So it was very busy and very noisy/lively in there. Has quite a few tvs so it has a few of a bar.

The food is good. Had the pork chop and it's pretty nicely done. A bit overdone but not to the point of being dry. The chicken wings are ok. Not something i would order again in there cause there are better wings else where. Yam fries are just yam fries, can't really screw that up :)

Overall would go back again because it's good enough.

nice restaurant, not so nice food.
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 4:35pm [Dine in]

Went to this restaurant last week. Got there and had to wait for the waitress to clean and set up a table for us eventhough there are empty tables. Not sure why the need to sit us there but i don't care cause i'm there for food.

The restaurant is very nice and cozy. It's not too big, lots of wine on display and nice ambiance all around. Very fine dining indeed.

The menu is pretty big, with lots of choices from meat, seafood, pasta, to platters. We opted for calamari and the stuffed pasta platter.
The calamari was delicious but very small portion. It is the reason why the food rating in this review is a 2 instead of a 1 actually.

The platter came in a big oval plastic plate thingy. Very dollar store feel. No matter, cause i'm there for food. There were 4 different types of pasta and sauces all together. Let's just say that there was only one good sauce in there. Everything else was not good. Pasta that's dry and tasteless even with stuffing inside. Sauces that don't go with the pasta pairing. Oh and the whole thing wasn't even that hot.

Overall very disappointing for pasta. But i would go back to try their other meat entres before i put this restaurant in the do not go list.

Been to this restaurant twice for lunch. Very average for everything. Nothing really stands out for being good nor bad. The food is decent, the services is friendly enough, the place is clean, the prices are not too bad. Food come pretty quick. The burgers are not bad although last time the buns are kinda dry. Would go back because it's not bad and sometimes it's just convenient.

Ok food but not award worthy.
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 4:15pm [Dine in]

This restaurant has won alot of awards. Therefore the expectation was quite high. And i must say i'm dissapointed.

The service is very friendly but be prepare to wait as they tend to get very busy. Parking is also a nightmare when they are having their busy nights.

The food is nothing special. Very average as in you could get the same dish with the same quality and taste from any other chinese restaurant. The food also tend to be on the oily side. One praise would go to their chicken with green onion in a soup broth. That dish is very well done.

Used to be worst, a lot worst.
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 2:49pm [Dine in]

Ate here not long ago and to my surprise not that bad anymore.

This is the white spot that fooled me twice, and yes i know, fooled me twice shame on me. But just had to go the second time to see if they were really that bad. But this last time after a few years, it was actually ok.

The food used to be overcooked, like salmon that chew like a chicken in your mouth kinda overcooked. Now the food are nicely done, nothing special but nicely done as it suppose to be.

Service is ok. Friendly server but the host just doesn't seem like she welcomes you at all because there was no smile and friendly greetings. Just "hi, for two?" and lead you to your table.

Can't get more for the price.
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 2:41pm [Dine in]

$10. Seriously what more do you expect from $10? I've paid 3 times the price for butter chicken that is no way as good as this place and this place is only $10 for a buffet.

Yes selection is not as impressive for a buffet, however the food just taste too good for me to care. It is true that sometimes they might be running out of something or even only have bits and pieces left swimming in abundance of sauce, but everytime we just point it out and a new batch is served before you can even start whinning about your $10.

Oh and their chai latte is way better than 99% of the cafes out there.

Quickest pho ever!
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 2:35pm [Dine in]

Service is your usual pho place. A nice friendly hi and then sit you down right away, tea comes just after you've finished taken off your jacket.

The soup taste good and hot unlike some places only warm. From the moment you finished ordering to you getting your food, this place is the quickest i've ever experienced.

One thing i don't like about this place is their rice dishes. They are not as good as some other pho place.

Decent place to get a fix for pho.
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 2:29pm [Dine in]

This place is a quick and easy place for a fix of pho. The pho is average, the rice dishes are good, the vermicelli bowls are also average, and their vietnamese subs are good.

Food comes quite quickly. The wait staffs here is pretty good up til you've settle down and got your food. After that you have to pretty much get their attention to ask for anything else such as more tea or more water.

This is one of the restaurant in our regular rotation after our games. Good bubble tea, very good individual hot pot, nice selection of tasty appertizers, and consistently new items on the menu.

Food are very consistent in this place. They always taste the same. The hot pot and the bbq plates come promptly. However, be prepare to wait for some of their special items on the menu such as the green onion chicken. But the waitresses there will always inform you after you've ordered that the wait time for your dish is roughly about 20 mins so you won't be caught off guard and waiting cluelessly.

The food makes everything ok.
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 2:13pm [Dine in]

Went here as a group of 8. The restaurant decor is poor, only a few paintings and posters on the wall. Waited for a while before we get any water. Service has got to be the slowest and worst you can experience because there were only 2 people working there. One is the owner/cook/server, the other just well do nothing. However, if you do like malaysian food, you need to eat here at least once. Just ignore the service and enjoy the food.

Food are very good. Very authentic but some are a bit spicy. Their teh talek is right on the money with what you can get in malaysia.

If you are planning to go, go early because they close at 8pm. I don't blame him cause it's hard running a restaurant with only yourself.

This is our favourite malaysian restaurant in the lower mainland. The food is simple but tasty just like real malaysian food, we know cause we are from malaysia :)

Reservation is highly recommended because this restaurant is not that big and it is extremely busy especially during the weekend.

Some of the dishes we like are their satay, mutabak, char bee hun, char kueh teuw, and their sambal combo veggie. Portion for entrees is decent but i find that some of their appies are overpriced for the portion.

A decent pho place with huge selection.
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 12:43pm [Dine in]

Went there 2 days ago for lunch. The decor is nothing special as with every other family run restaurant. Friendly service as soon as we got into the door. We ordered their drip coffee, mine came with some coffee grind on the side of the dripper. To my surprise he apologized and bring it back in to clean it before bringing it back to me. That's why i gave it a 4 for service. Because to me coffee grinds on a coffee dripper is normal and not a big deal.

Ordered their house special pho and the special chicken pho. This is the first time that a chicken pho comes with real chicken chunks instead of turkey!! The soup is kinda sweet but still on the good side. Everything else is just your typical pho restaurant.

I will definitely go back to this restaurant because their menu's variety is just too huge to be able to judge how good this restaurant is.

Bad food, decent service.
Submitted Tuesday, October 20, 2009 - 12:30pm [Dine in]

Went there yesterday for lunch with my gf. The server was very friendly and attentive but that's maybe because we are the only table at that time, around 12:40pm.

ordered the follow:
a cup of coffee, only luke warm, pretty weak tasting also.

a cup of seafood chowder, pretty darn good.

2 pieces cod and chip, the combined weight of the cod are probably about 200g, they look like those cod fillets that come in a box in the frozen dinner section in superstore. And i paid $12 for that, guess i'm the sucker here.

Smoked salmon omellete. Taste pretty good with the cream cheese inside. Fried potatoes are not as nicely done as they should have been.

Will not go back again considering all the choices of restaurant on that strectch of waterfront.
