Thida Thai1193 Davie St, Vancouver
Best Thai in Vancouver
Submitted Wednesday, July 22, 2009 - 8:17pm [Dine in]

I love my Thai food, and have tried many restaurants in this city, and others, and this has not only the best value for the quality, but also the most tasty, yummy thai EVER. The service is great, they are friendly and everything they need to be. The place is smaller, but really cute and non-pretentious, which is great. But the food... omigod. It's really just awesome. The pad thai w/tofu add prawns is the best i've ever had, and the beef panang is my new favorite. The portions are immense and the price is really reasonable.
I am assuming this place is a little underrated because of the size and the basic decor. But who really cares. It's the best, just and try it!

Candia Taverna4510 W 10th Avenue, Vancouver
Great food away from downtown
Submitted Monday, May 18, 2009 - 11:43pm [Dine in]

I've been coming here off and on since 2000, and the tomato sauce still tastes the same.... that says something for consistency. The food here IS really good! It's not the place to go when you feel like a salad, or are starting a diet, but the pizza is homemade style, the souvlakia portions are immense and the pastas are simple, tasty and fresh. Sometimes I find the greek rice to be a bit bland... but I realize rice is hit or miss.... it happens.
The service for the most part is friendly and out-going, but sometimes they get a bit busy, so if your someone who like to down your drink glass every 2 minutes, you may have a problem. But if you want to relax, spend an hour or two and eat some deliciously carb ladden homestyle greek goodness, then Candia is the place!

Best Tasting Brunch
Submitted Monday, May 18, 2009 - 11:29pm [Dine in]

They really do have the best brunch in town. It's not completely cheap, but it's totally reasonable for the food! The brunch specials are really, really tasty, a little inventive and the combinations are really well matched, I had one of the best omlettes ever at this place. The martinis (in the morning) were fab, and the fresh americanos are hands down better than drip coffee. The servers are efficient, and friendly, though I'm sure they are really busy all morning long, so I can't blame them for any longer than average waits.
We don't come here enough for brunch, but it's really got some of the best tasting brunch food I've had in the city.

Meh.

Ew. Haven't been here for awhile, but sure will remember the pink chicken wings! The room itself looks OK, but the decor is slightly on the late 1990's side, with the dark, dark woods and reds. It looks as though the furniture was purchased at the Brick's parking lot sale where you don't pay till 2024.
Other than the dark and gloomy atmosphere, the drink list looks OK, but lots of sickly sweet cocktails, although the prices are reasonable. I'm guessing the lack of front end staff also has something to do with the fact that they probably have to comp alot of meals. It really pays in the end to have quick, efficient service, cause at least if the food sucks, people might come back because of the service, but this joint misses both marks. But that's Restaurant Business 101......

I don't want to take it out on this place, cause I know there are pleeeenty of restaurants in Vancouver that do the "Tapa's" thing. I'm sorry, but unless they actually send the chef to Spain to actually experience what real Tapas is all about, don't try to recreate it here. It just comes off as pretentious, cheap and ignorant of world food. A $14 plate of a handful of fries and 3 small, sysco-frozen breaded and deep fried "chicken fingers" does not count as tapas. Neither do 3 small Korean style short ribs. You can't just be cheap with portions, throw it on a white square/rectangular plate and call it tapas. Dummy.

Really good, cheap breakfast!
Submitted Monday, May 18, 2009 - 11:05pm [Dine in]

It was busy when we went, and it looked like the server had to run the whole front, but she was as prompt as she could be and super polite! The food was a really good value, we both had omelettes and you can pick your own toppings, like goat cheese, chicken, bacon, ect... I think it was under $10 per plate, so we felt like we scored with really tasty, cheap breakfast. It's simple, just like it should be. We haven't been for lunch or dinner, but will go for sure!

Ummm....
Submitted Monday, May 18, 2009 - 10:57pm [Dine in]

So we stopped in here for a drink on a hot sunny day after some shopping in the area. The room itself is fine, a standard, clean, room, like any somewhat classy pub. The beer recommendation was actually kinda gross ..... but my friend liked his alot! I'm not sure if the server fully knew the whole beer menu, which isn't a big deal really, I don't expect them to major in serving, minor in carrying plates. But, to be fair, the drink list looked OK, but some of the regular pub standards on tap were over priced by a good dollar or more ...... compared to other places in the area.
The beer, the service, the room wasn't the issue really.... it was the food. ew.
Don't order the fish cakes, unless your into a couple, as in 2, child's palm sized cakes atop a bed of ice berg lettuce with some 1980's barcelona salad dressing composed of white vinegar and mayonnaise... and if that wasn't what it was, it sure tasted like it. It was also $15. I'm not sure who the owners/management of this place are, but I'm sure they aren't papered chefs.... let alone the person who made the menu. Granted, it is just a pub, but some of the other things we tried were about as well prepared as what a grade 9 cooking class could produce. If your in the area, and just want a drink and don't mind paying the extra few bucks compared to the going rate, then sure, it's probably a safe bet, but I wouldn't bother with the food...

Glad I live near by
Submitted Monday, May 18, 2009 - 10:41pm [Dine in]

Have came here once before when it was the old Portuguese place, and live near by so really wanted to see what this place was like. Have never been to their other restaurant, so didn't really know what to expect.
It didn't matter that I couldn't understand what the menu said, because the server in the back wine bar section did all the work for us. I brought a guest visiting from out of town, and I ended up glad we decided not to wait in the pouring rain outside of Foundation for a seat....
The wine recommendations he gave us were perfect! Loved the wine! The octopus salad and tuna with white beans were unexpectedly delicious, and the serving sizes were perfect... especially when you want to try a few things on the menu, plus wine and dessert without being stuffed.
The pizza was decent... I prefer more sauce, so it was a little dry for me, but the steak was fantastic and again, the wines were delicious.
The room itself is very basic, and if you are looking to have a private conversation, this probably wont happen, but it didn't bother me. I would have to say though, I recieved * hands down* some of the best service I've had in Vancouver. As a former server myself, I pick up alot of things, and this guy, not sure his name, was awesome!
