Browns Socialhouse215 Newport Drive, Port Moody
Unprofessional staff
Submitted Friday, June 27, 2014 - 1:20pm [Dine in]

I have generally had a good time at browns. But this location has the worst unprofessional waitresses. Ours was never around and we were not given cutlery, napkins clean classes etc without begging. We also witness a group of people who we're being told off loudly by more than one staff member when they asked numerous times to be moves to a different table that was not being used and was not used all night for no reason . It was embarrassing for the restaurant. Another table near us had paid their bill but then one person decided they wanted a coffee. They were literally told they could only have the coffee if they went inside because the patio was closing even though we were still out there and plenty of other people were too. When I went to the bathroom I heard one person in the group say they didn't want to pay for the one coffee because it was stale and cold. She was refused and ordered to pay the bill when she asked to see the manager they conveniently could not "find" them. What a sideshow. This stuff should not be seen by customers when they are trying to enjoy a night out.

Vij's Rangoli1488 West 11th Avenue, Vancouver
The food speaks for itself
Submitted Saturday, May 31, 2014 - 8:54pm [Dine in]

I have been to Vij's and was wowed by both the food and the bill! Same at Rangoli. Although more casual and less expensive it's a mini version of its big cousin.

The room is sparse and not fine dining like Vijs. However, I sat on one of the chairs for more than two hours and did not find them any worse than any hipster joint on Main Street. I also did find the tables too close together for a bistro kind of place.

The service was utilitarian and sparse but no complaints.

But, the food - I don't care if it's not what other people deem"authentic" or anything else. I don't thing it even calls itself and authentic Indian restaurant, so why can't people just leave Vij alone to make his magic?

The chaat was dliciously different and the cassava fries and dips they were served with - stellar. The Mushroom and pepper curry - fantastic as was the chick pea and onion dish. And sharing an appy and having one dish to myself I was stuffed. The naan really fills you up. Didnt have have any dessert - I don't like Indian sweets, but the drinks and wine were criminally priced for the serving size. I could eat this food everyday if I could afford it. Shared appy, one drink and an entree - before tip $40.

Contrary to the previous post which appears to be written by someone who has a stake in this place, it is below average Canadian Chinese. The sweet and sour pork tasted "gamey". The almond chicken was pretty good and the fried rice - well how do you screw that up? Prawns and broccoli was close to $14 and had 5 medium prawns, undercooked broccoli and no flavour. The chow mein wasn't greasy - that would have at least given it some flavour. I didn't try the other things we ordered but no one was very impressed. They somehwere else.

We need more places like this!
Submitted Wednesday, May 14, 2014 - 11:33am [Dine in]

The rumour around town has always been that this is the place to go for breakfast but I have never made it, Finally made it on a recent weekend. First off, this aint gourmet or fancy. It's your old school mom and pop shop. It's liking going to your grandmas, Maybe she hasnt redecorated since the 80's, and needs some repairs and paint as well as a good carpet cleaning. But, she still cooks you the comfort food you need and keeps you happy. I had a huge mushroom omlette. I dont think there were any mushrooms left in poco.It came with toast and yummy hasbrowns. The coffee was an old school good cup of joe - just what I wanted. My son had a drink, french toast and hahsbrowns. The french toast was texas toast - 3 slices and cost under $6. We got out of there for under $20 and didn't eat again until dinner. Try that at IHOP. Oh and the service was fantastic too. They also have old school burgers, fries, toasted shrimp sandwiches etc. I will definitely be back.

This time the hate was off for Whitespot
Submitted Sunday, April 27, 2014 - 7:24pm [Dine in]

Went there for a weeknight meal. Not being a fan of Whitespot I wasn't expecting much. However, the new Asian Menu and Marci made it awesome. The thai shrimp curry was excellent and teh other food we ordered was although the same as other locations, just a bit better - pirate pack, burger etc., Our waitress Marci was teh best and if she isn't head waitress or training the others she darn well should be. Listen up WHitespot, make Marci service manager of all locations or something. She was the funniest, most awesome waitress we've had in years and I would come back here just for her.

What a rip off!,
Submitted Wednesday, January 22, 2014 - 12:38pm [Dine in]

So the idea is good but poorly executed. For $9 I watched the guy make my California chopped salad . Mostly lettuce like 80%. All the other ingredients including feta, shrimp , pineapple raisins etc we're put in by one teaspoon each! It was supposed to have avocado which I expected to be decent sized pieces Nope, when I asked where the avocado was the guy says " we use base". Huh? Then he shows me a bin of runny minced up cucumber and says the avocado is mixed in there . So I basically paid $9 for lettuce and some dressing and was still starving. No wonder everyone else in the food court ate at taco time KFC etc - so they could be full for under $7. I did not see one other customer go to the salad place. Too bad. Closing soon

Hmmm hard to say based on dine out
Submitted Tuesday, January 21, 2014 - 10:27pm [Dine in]

Came here for dine out. Was told when I made reservations that they were VERY busy but could squeeze us in. Then when two pople were waiting 5 minutes to be seated(on time) someone from the restaurant called the person who made the reservations and was 5 minutes late, to say tehy were very busy and were we coming? The place stayed 1/3 to 1/2 empty all night. Just hype?

Waitress was ok, service too slow when you wanted it and too fast when you didn't. I was shocked at the skimpy portion sizes! Soup was served in one of those HUGE plate bowls but the soup was little more than a stain in the bottom. The Kale appetizer was small but enjoyed.

Entrees(Large plates they call them) ,- mushroom steak - laughably small! Smaller than an appy at most places. Person did not enjoy it either. Crepes were good and perogies I think were the best - actually very good - yet strangely underseasoned and salted. The waiter had brough salt and pepper to thoe table saying "just in case" but we wouldn't need it. He was wrong. We needed both and LOTS of it. Does vegan food have to be bland?

Now to the desserts - The trifle I think was served in basically a large shot glass - what a joke, The lemon cannolis were the smallest cannolies I have ever seen in my life! But the lemon filling was delish. It was suupposed to have a "lavender coulis" or something but I did not taste any of that.

Wine was fairly expensive and VERY VERY VERY small serving sizes in VERY large glasses. Not a fan of that,.

Perhaps the portion sizes explain why most vegans I know are skinny. But, if those are their regular portion sizes for the menu prices and not scaled down for dine out, it' s crazy. Two members of our party stopped for burgers on the way home, so some poor cow died and the purpose of the restaurant was defeated because they didn't want to serve enough food. WE would not be back dine out or otherwise. ANd the palce was SOOO dark you couldn't read the menus or maybe so you couldn't see all the anemic tempeh and tofu?

Sashimi Sushi9855 Austin Rd, #116, Burnaby
When it comes to sushi, it's all about the rice.
Submitted Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 7:21pm [Dine in]

And if your rice sucks, then your restaurant sucks. This is a take out place in Lougheed mall with a couple of seats inside. It is a franchise I think and some are better than others. The one at Coquitlam Centre is very good.

This one was bad. The seaweed was very chewy and rubbery, the rice was undercooked and crunchy. That wrecks any sushi. The Cali roll did not have avocado but was cheap enough to excuse that.

All in all though, I would not be back. There's too much sushi out there to suffer this.

Worst Pizza in teh AREA? Try ANYWHERE.
Submitted Tuesday, November 5, 2013 - 8:24pm [Dine in]

I HATE BP and this one is the worst. We had to come in after a hockey game with my son's team. I was hungry so against my better judgement we ordered the perogy pizza. GROSS. WHat a disgusting mess. Me and Eds knows how to make perogy pizza if you care to check BP. YOU. do NOT.

The beer was warm and all the pastas were very small for the price. Plus the waitresses barely talked to the boys, instead deferring to the parents. They're 15-17 years old and were surprisingly well behaved. All the parents were asking themselves why we come here. We won't again,

And as for the reviewer who said it was from Boston. No, it's from Edmonton. You'd think then that they'd know how to make perogy pizza. Sadly, not.

For the Long wed and nearly dead
Submitted Friday, August 30, 2013 - 10:32pm [Dine in]

I have been going to this place on and off for years. More off than on and it looks like I'm not the only one. They used to have line ups on Friday night - sadly their "security chain" is no longer needed. The food gets WORSE year after year and management obviously does not care. I remember the days of line ups out the door for their buffet brunches with all you could eat cracked crab.

Friday night at 7 pm - lots of space on the patio. Lousy, slow waitress with no customer intuition. Beer cold. Caesars were basic - I make better at home. Food was just food service bagged garbage ordered from a supply company and deep fried. No chef or cooking skills required. Chicken strips were grocery store quality. Fries were SOGGY. The whole night was basically a waste of money. I have relatives coming from Europe and it's a safe bet to say I'd be embarrassed to call this place my "local". I won't be back. Oh and it was then only 1/4 full when we left at 8:30 on a sunny Friday night of a long weekend and it's situated on the water. Pretty telling.

Hey hotess - take the lead out of your shoes and find our waitress
Submitted Sunday, August 25, 2013 - 8:57pm [Dine in]

Ever go to a restaurant and know as soon as you stand there for a minute that it's "not going to go well" as my husband said? That's this place. Now I generally like Rickys for breakfast and hoped this fairly new one would be good. Wrong.

We waited on a Sunday morning for at least 10 minutes while the SLOOOOOOWWWW hostess sat two groups ahead of us. She wasn't even pouring coffee just seating. She'd leave and then come back five minutes later. She not only walked slow she looked slow. Note to manager she might be better suited working at another task. On our way out new people waiting were commenting on her as well.

When we were sat the fairly decent waitress got us coffee - we didn't really see her again. One bus boy came by by and tried to refill my husband's coffee by reaching around a corner, and across the table infront of two kids. It was weird I have never seen anyone pour coffee like that. Later some other person came by and offered more coffee and we told her we had only been given 2 sets of cutlery for 4 people. She came back in a minute but instead of setting the 2 missing places she literally dropped the cutlery and napkins onto the table from about 8 inches up and walked away!

When the food came it was again weird coffee-pouring bus boy and not our waitress. She later came by and asked if we were missing anything and I thought that perhaps if you'd served it you'd know. That was the last we saw of her. We even had to eventually get a manager to get our bill for us and then had to go up to pay as no one came by. Service was BRUTAL.

The food was pretty good as always for breakfast, fresh, hot and tasty. No giant portions here which is good but the prices are a bit up there. $50 for a family for breakfast is just too much. I do not think we'd hit up this place again.

Rocky Point Ice Cream3082 Spring Street, Port Moody
Awesome Fun!
Submitted Tuesday, July 16, 2013 - 4:52pm [Dine in]

Went to the NEW Rocky point ice cream today. They now make their own ice cream on site instead of purchasing it. Fantastic new flavours lots of creative ones I've never seen in other fancy ice cream stores. They also make sundaes, shakes, floats etc. All inside and air conditioned. Prices have gone up though. But the price was fair for what you got. T

You can watch them make the ice cream from the window. One lady wasn't wearing a hair net -EW. Health dept? But, I already had mine so I was good.

Try it - the kids will love it!

Five of us came in for a takeout order. I think it was Tom serving us. He was fast, efficient and got every order right with out having to ask questions twice or repeat himself. Even steered us away from the coffee in the most polite way, as it was old, but offered to make a fresh pot right away. All our sandwiches were perfectly made, nicely labelled for everyone and packed expertly. Great Job!

Overpriced and just plain gross
Submitted Sunday, June 30, 2013 - 12:59am [Dine in]

Asked cashier if they could make a grilled cheese as my kid doesn't eat meat or veggie burgers. Cashier said flat out no. I persisted and explained what I wanted cheese and a bun and she said no they cannot do that. She was very rude. I asked her to ask her manager who said sure no problem. Then I asked if there was gluten in their burgers. There was wheat crumbs I was told - but the sign says 100% pure beef no additives. That's a lie a guess.

Had california veggie - it was GROSS. Costco guacamole and glop all over it. I barely ate any. The fries were ok if not tasteless.. The onion rings were the WORST. THey looked uncooked and anemic. They were not crispy adn tasted again like nothing. Thank god for ketchup at this place. It was all very overpriced.

That's what the drive through here is. Of the last 5 times we've been there the order was NEVER right. Tonight - a coke, a diet coke and a coke zero was a coke, and two root beers. The happy meal with small fries subbed for mini fries and a yogurt took over 5 mintues at the order window to organize(?) and then was still just the mini fries and yogurt.

A filet o fish magically became a McChicken and teh happy meal had no toy.

Pajos - World's Best Guilty Pleasure
Submitted Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 6:46pm [Dine in]

I have been to all the Pajos locations. This one is the best for ambiance.

Had halibut and chips and partner had cod and chips. Unlike at other locations or other visits, the cod was a little better here I think. The Halibut had a few spots missing batter and was just a little soggier than usual. The cod was crispy.

The chips were excellent as usual. All served in a paper cone. Get you condiments first though or you'll have no hands to do it. I have found the halibut at other locations a little better but who cares - it's all good. yay Pajos!

There's tons of these little cafe, sandwich panini, coffee, pastry places around. But, this one is one of the better ones. Lots of sandwiches(premade and made to order), grilled or not, wraps, quiche, soup as well as muffins, squares, cookies etc.

The service is good and the decor is nice. A couple of tables are outside too. Coffee was excellent and teh lattes large and generous.

Only thing I didn't like was there were few prices on the board so it was difficult to order. 2 regular sandwiches, a coffee and a cookie was $16.

Stepping up their Game
Submitted Friday, May 24, 2013 - 10:46pm [Dine in]

I think feeling the pressure from Cactus Club and Browns, Milestones has stepped up. Having kept most of their menu favourites, they have added a "celebrity chef" menu that far surpassed the stale Rob Feenie fare.

We were intending on going to Browns but the line up wasvery big and noticing that most of the patio partrons were drunk 20 year olds hooting and doing shots we decided to leave and go somewhere mor conducive to a nice social evening.

We were thinking of earls, but don't like the plastic fake bimbo waitresses who know nothing about service just posing for a tip. So we went to Milestones. It was busy but no line up - perfect. Out hostess was smart and could actually create a full sentence without the word "Like".

Our waitress was also, classy, professional an over 25. WOW 2 for 2. We had fantastic service. And, the food was actually amazing. The quinoa shrimp was the most inovative delicious thing I've had in a long time. Crab cakes - NO filler. All crab. Thai noodle stir fry excellent as were the 2 amazing chef menu desserts.

A plus all around. Good for you MIlestones - you finally have got it right. It was awesome - I think buster's undies were too tight.

If you're hungry and broke....
Submitted Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 11:00pm [Dine in]

Well not quite. Let's see - I went there today because I stopped in on my lunch hour to pick up some glasses.

There was a line up even at 11:30 on a Wednesday. I'm not sure of the quality of the hot food but the masses seemed to be sucking it up. They had chicken noodle soup labelled as vegetarian vegetable soup. I pointed it out to some staff member who did nothing. They have tilapia or some other cheap fish for $9.99 - no bargain. Laughable actually.

The veggie wrap was $4 - one wrap cheese and raw veggies - they're still making big money.

The cinnamon bun and coffee is good for $2 but the cinnamon gets over powering.

The breakfast is the best deal for $2 or whatever it is. Liquid scrambled eggs, unsalted hash browns and meat. But if you want to skip one item and have more of another that's ok. They do make good coffee. Very good.

A lot of people were having chili and garlic bread - seemed very popular.

I dunno - I never look forward to eating there but if I have jingly change in my purse and I'm hungry when there I'll indulge. Definately not a destination . Maybe I'll try hitting it up for drinks on Friday night - it's licenced.
