ULounge16051 24th Avenue, Unit #10, Surrey
Imitation Bar
Submitted Friday, November 20, 2009 - 12:05am [Dine in]

I have been to this place a few times now and wanted to experience it all from busy to normal days. I have to say that it's a lounge/bar but no where near fine or average dining standards. The menu features some decent dishes but only to visually satisfy your pallet. On a Saturday night, try getting past a line up to have food or drinks. What turned out initially to be as the most buzzing place in South Surrey at inception is just an average bar now. The only thing going for this place is the ambience. The crowd is teeny bopper as well. A great alternative is the Cactus Club which delivers constantly.

Steveston Pizza Co.3400 Moncton Street, #100, Richmond
Excellent neighborhood Pizzeria
Submitted Sunday, October 25, 2009 - 11:00am [Dine in]

We live in Steveston and decided to give this place a shot other than Panago. We looked at the menu online and discovered that it was tad bit pricey. We decided to order their medium Italian with mushrooms instead of olives. The pizza was made on a thin crust and all the ingridients were really fresh. They even topped the pizza with fresh basil. Notwithstanding, all the toppings were very generous and the cheese looked fresh as well.....Excellent value and it's our neighborhood favourite.

Cucumber Cafe10211 St. Edwards Drive, Richmond
Very Pretentous
Submitted Monday, October 19, 2009 - 11:31am [Dine in]

My wife and I work out at the Steve Nash Sports Club next door. One day we decided to check out Cucumber Cafe as it looked quite inviting from outside. As we entered, we were looked after right away and we were seated in a booth. The ambience seems really nice and resembles a posh and upscale bar.

I ordered a Tex Mex Fritatta while my wife offered a sunrise Pannini. The food took about 10 minutes as we sipped on some coffee. Once the food arrived, my wife and I were in a big shock to see nothing but grease on the pannini as it dripped through the bread. My Frittata was nothing better than disgusting to say the least. I think the chef was really confused and didn't quite understand what a Frittata meant. I saw a bed of flour tortillas stuffed with cheese and an open faced omlet with a grilled chicken breast and some salsa. The breakfast potatoes were most edible of all. My wife ordered a side ceasar salad which came with no dressing. The chef is trying to do a fusion frittata but I could suggest a tex mex Frittata could just do with some chorizo sausage and not some imitation flour stuffed with cheese. The omlet needs more care as well as it was way overcooked. We do not recommend this and definitely suggest Denny's as an alternate place. The food might not be fresh but at least it is edible.

Fifty Two 80 Bistro and Bar4591 Blackcomb Way, Whistler
Outstanding Food - A true Four Season's experience
Submitted Tuesday, October 6, 2009 - 7:29pm [Dine in]

This is my favourite restaurant in Whistler. I have pratically tried everything on the menu over the years. We can taste and smell fresh ingridients without any false pretense or imitation like other fine dining restaraunts such as Quattros and Bearfoot Bistro. The wine list is excellent as well. A very quite ambience and seems like a nice getaway from Whistler in general. Four Seasons continually stands out in overall layout, ambience we get a very cozy yet contemporary feel in fiftytwo Eighty. Great work chefs.

Table Nineteen Lakeside Eatery at Nicklaus North8080 Nicklaus North Blvd., Whistler
Decent Dining Experience
Submitted Tuesday, October 6, 2009 - 7:23pm [Dine in]

I have visited and lived in Whistler for a few years now. Occasionally, after a game of golf or a lunch on the patio seems decent for the clubhouse but I am not sure about the dinner as it's too pricey for it's value. The sunday brunches seemed very greasy as well and I found it to be overpriced by a mile. A good overall ambience and a quite getaway from other village restaurants. I would visit again only after a round of golf.

Boston Pizza11662 Steveston Hwy, #2000, Richmond
Typical Boston Sodium Pizza Experience
Submitted Tuesday, October 6, 2009 - 7:19pm [Dine in]

Nothing specifically against this location but I am amazed to see how people continue to be glued to this place despite several Mcdonalds around. The sauces are pre-packaged and the pastas are too salty with imitation sauces. The food never tastes fresh and is overpriced for kiliing my arteries. Please avoid BP by all means especially when it comes to your well being. Before banning any other fast food chains, someone has to look at BP

Bombay Se7500 120th Street, #201, Surrey
True North Indian Cusine - Still overpriced
Submitted Tuesday, October 6, 2009 - 7:11pm [Dine in]

I heard raving reviews about this restaurant and decided to try out for myself. The ambience is really nice for an East Indian restaurant and gives a slightly modern/contemporary look coupled with Bollywood posters and artifacts throughout the restaurant. Upon arriving, the waitresses and hostesses acknowledged us but did not attend to us for at least 10 minutes which initially gave us a sour taste to begin with. We got seated and were baffled to see only 3 chicken dishes. I ordered the infamous butter chicken and a Lamb dish as well as paneer makhni and dum aloo. We were suprised to see Dum Aloo on the menu as very few restaurants have brought that native dish to Canada. I was quite impressed with the food and it was a real nice treat after eating at many Indian Restaurants on Scott Road which all taste the same including Mehfil and Mahek (not sure what's good about them as the food was below par). The biggest draw back at Bombay Se is the portions of food which are really small and is definitely over priced. I am right in the middle for the value that this place provides. The oweners definitely need to step it up a notch and add the additional value by either increasing the portions or decreasing the prices by average $5!!!!!

Hon's Wun Tun House4600 No. 3 Rd, #101, Richmond
True Chineese Food
Submitted Tuesday, October 6, 2009 - 7:00pm [Dine in]

Being of a descent other than Asian, I find it often challenging ordering food given the language barrier and lack of knowledge. Hon's gives you a true street food experience especially for their sui mai and other dumplings. The portions are large and I find the prices very satisfying. There is an adjoining Bubble Tea place as well but It's not the best I've tried so I would pass.

Tapenade Bistro3711 Bayview Street, Richmond
Good Brunch
Submitted Tuesday, October 6, 2009 - 6:55pm [Dine in]

I usually stroll around in Steveston on Sundays and found this spot for some great brunch/lunch. I ordered their Fritatta and it was delicious and well balanced with other toppings. I saw people ordering fish and were raving about it as well. They also have a nice patio to lounge in summers. A good casual spot with mature ambience.

Great Value
Submitted Tuesday, October 6, 2009 - 6:52pm [Dine in]

A true old fashioned dining. There is nothing pretentous about the place. It has honest prices and offer a good home style cooked meal. I ordered a surf n turf and did not find the steak to be juicy and lean. The most affordable option in Steveston and an honest dining experience. I am a chef for over 10 years of cooking experience.
