India Bistro1157 Davie Street, Vancouver
AYCE Indian buffet
Submitted Tuesday, September 15, 2015 - 5:01pm [Dine in]

Decided to try out the lunch buffet at India Bistro. Every day they offer an all you can eat. I headed at there at about 1pm. As hungry as I was, the line up and fullness of the place made me believe that I was going in for a joyride.

After talking to a couple of people, I headed out to serve myself. The buffet selection is decent, at the least. A mix for both vegan and non-vegans alike, it is a meal to please everyone. You can find vegetarian curries and meat curries as well. I went conventional and served myself some butter chicken.

The chicken was great. Not too spicy, and not too cooked. Just perfect. I loved going back for a second helping. The rest was okay, but the chicken really stood out for me. Good for going on an empty stomach.

Akbar's Own Indian Restaurant1905 West Broadway, Vancouver
Definitely Not the Best, But Not Bad Either
Submitted Tuesday, October 28, 2014 - 10:25pm [Dine in]

I'm not going to lie, I have to admit this was not my first choice... Vij's was. But the +1 wait time put us off so while driving off we decided to take our date to Akbars. I have found the food to be pretty good nothing "WOW" or exceptional though. But a safe choice I guess.

And bam, when we arrived we had to wait around here as well. It was late and we were w/o a reservation, so what choice did we have?

We had the rogan rosh, vegetable korma, butter chicken, rice and naan. The lamb was okay, a little unseasoned in my opinion, but the vegetable korma was delicious and kind of made up for the lack of taste of the other. My boyfriend did find the butter chicken good. For about $13 for a main, prices are not bad. Service was alright, the server was attentive but not too the point of being annoying or clingy.

Aladdin's Cafe67 Victoria Crescent, Nanaimo
An exotic gem in Downtown
Submitted Monday, October 27, 2014 - 12:12am [Dine in]

Aladdin's in one of those little hole-in-the-wall kind of restaurants that you get enamoured with once you try its food...and want no one else to know about. But unfortunately lots of people know about it now, as it was packed when I returned. I remember first coming here without truly planning to, being lured in by the exotic look and decor, not to mention the music coming out from the store (Lebanese and Greek as described). But to be honest, it took the food to really win me over. Everything on the menu is great and tastes freshly made, be it the tzatziki, falafel wrap or lamb souvlaki. And the baklava! Just thinking about this food makes my mouth water.

Boston Pizza5779 Turner Road, #2, Nanaimo
Not good value for the money!
Submitted Sunday, October 26, 2014 - 11:52pm [Dine in]

Honestly, I am not really a fan of "fast-food" restaurants. I am more of a slow-food eater, so obviously coming here was out of my comfort zone. But given that the website looked good, and the fact that it has many locations and looks reputable, I took the risk (How bad could Boston Pizza be?).

We came in for lunch and the first red flag was that the place seemed pretty empty. The fact that no one acknowledged us should have given us a hint. For the ridiculous prices that they were charging, the food was no good. I don't know whether it was the shrimp or the chicken but I had to send back the jambalaya fettuccini ($19). And I couldnt finish the market salad either. It definitely did not taste fresh and their was something off. Maybe I should have gone for something more simple like a pizza?

Nori Japanese Restaurant6750 North Island Hwy, #203, Nanaimo
Looking for good sushi in Nanaimo? Try Nori
Submitted Sunday, October 26, 2014 - 11:16pm [Dine in]

I've been coming to Nori for a while now, almost every time I can when I am in Nanaimo. Just to tell you how good and addicting it can be, on my most recent visit I came here twice. Might not seem like a lot but for someone who likes to try new places and eat different things every day, it is a lot. NOTE: I am no longer in Nanaimo but I thought I should review this place because it is really very good.

Nori is one of those places where you don't mind paying a lot because you feel that 'every penny is worth it'. From the moment you step in, you are treated very nicely. Warm greeting from the staff that is not the least bit flustered or worried about anyone but you, even with the amount of people here. The restaurant gets extremely busy most time, especially after 5, so it is best to make a reservation before coming. You still have to wait, but at least you are secured that you will have a table.

What I think draws all the crowd is that the quality and taste is guaranteed. The sushi is fresh. I know this because it is made in front of you. If you come here for lunch, the bento box is the way to go. Otherwise, there is a large variety to choose from. My absolute favorite is their beef teriyaki roll, unagi roll, toro sashimi.

Delicado's358A Wesley Street, Nanaimo
Great This Hole-In-The-Wall Restaurant
Submitted Monday, October 20, 2014 - 8:48pm [Dine in]

All I must say after eating here is that looks are really deceiving! I tried my hand in this mexican hole-in-the-wall for the first time and actually liked it. The place is quite unassuming but that is in no way conductive of the quality or taste of the food. I had a quick lunch here and really liked what I ordered (salad and California roll-up). They have a place outside you can sit and enjoy your food, but from the looks of it, most people just come and order take-out. The only thing I see as a problem here are that the prices are a little expensive.

Modern Cafe221 Commercial Street, Nanaimo
No Reviews Should Have Told Me Something?
Submitted Monday, October 20, 2014 - 8:28pm [Dine in]

Whilst visiting my sister in Nanaimo, I went to Modern Cafe. It is not the first time I come visit, so I am a bit familiar with the place and the places "to go". For me, Modern Cafe was one. I have come here before, not too many times though, once for lunch and only recently for dinner. I decided to go again and but have such a nice experience like the previous times...

Modern Cafe was house full when we arrived, so we had some trouble finding a table. After some waiting, we got a seat in the patio. It was nice outside, so we had no problem. Our waitress was attentive at first, but then disappeared once she took our order. "Did she forget us?" was the thing that came to our mind when 30 minutes passed and no sign of her our our drinks. I actually had to go inside and remind her. I don't know if she did it on purpose or because I told her we were not really hungry and didn't want to order much?

My burger tasted weird, and it was definitely not fresh. The prawn linguine was okay according to my sister and the mac and cheese we shared was not good. For items that are over $12, I expected more and better service. Basically, a disappointing dinner meal with subpar food.

Beach House, The150 25th Street, West Vancouver
A restaurant with a view...but where was the service?
Submitted Monday, October 6, 2014 - 10:03pm [Dine in]

I have been to the beach house a couple of times before, the last being for my sister's wedding reception. I came again for a date w/ my boyfriend and we asked for a seat by the window. The view is just beautiful from here: you can see the beach, lion's gate bridge, burrard inlet...I don't think I need to go on. You get the point.

I seldom eat here, only on special occasions, which is why I don't mind them positioning themselves an upscale dining spot with a spectacular view. Despite it being a popular location for big parties and events, parking is not a problem. There are both valet parking and on Bellevue ave options available.

I know what to expect of the prices - $20+ for an entree, $10 for a cocktail, which is not bad at all! The food was perfect, to say the least. We had some share plates and entrees. My prawn linguini was delicious and so was the gyoza. But the service left much to be desired. The waitress seemed to be inexperienced, which I can forgive, but inattentive? She forgot to bring my boyfriend's entree, took the longest time to bring it and didnt apologize when she mixed up our cocktails.
