Don't Eat Here
Submitted Saturday, November 30, 2013 - 12:15am [Dine in]

We wanted to try this place for lunch. Was hoping for some home style italian cooking. The place is cluttered and had a bunch of reserved signs on the tables so we thought maybe there was a big party coming in for lunch but no large party ever came in.

We got a table and proceeded to look at the menu.
I was in the mood for spaghetti and meatballs and inquired about the $7.95 lunch special and the server advised that was a half order and I may want to get the lunch size instead which was $10.95 on the menu. No problem, I was hungry.

My colleague is celiac so he asked about the gluten free pasta and was told he would have to order one of the dinner pasta dishes for $18.95 so he agreed and also ordered a glass of house red.
The food was ok with large portions but clearly made from frozen and packaged ingredients.

When we went to pay the bill my friend was charged $7.95 for a glass of house red and his pasta ended up being approx. $23. I was charged $14.95 even though the menu said $10.95 for full lunch size... Anyway, you do the math. I just paid it and had to laugh because for that price we could have eaten at Campignolo Roma down the street and had some amazing italian food with fresh ingredients.

Great, you made an extra $5 bucks off me... once. We eat out for lunch everyday and this place will certainly not make our rotation.

Provence Marinaside1177 Marinaside Cres, Vancouver
Great Food and Service
Submitted Sunday, September 1, 2013 - 12:19am [Dine in]

Had a really great experience at Provence Marinaside labor day weekend. The location right on the water and in Yaletown provides a picturesque backdrop. Took a friend from out of town and was impressed by the service and food. Our server Liz was amazing and we took her advice on the mains and the wine.

The food was on point. We shared the Escargot appetizer and it was quite unique and I would recommend it. My friend had the Salmon and I had the Halibut from the Chef's sesonal menu. Both dishes were outstanding and the wine our server selected were perfect. Price was commensurate with the experience and we got more value compared to other waterfront restaurants in Vancouver.

Sula Indian Restaurant1130 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Best Indian food on Commercial Drive
Submitted Saturday, April 6, 2013 - 1:24pm [Dine in]

We've tried all the Indian food places along Commercial drive for lunch and dinner. Palki has a great lunch buffet and all the usual dinner options. The place is pretty clean, nice, comfortable.

The food is always good. The staff are very attentive, polite and genuine. The Butter Chicken is creamy and delicious. The naan is actually quite good and comes out fresh with just the right amount of char and crunch. The Veggie Korma is a tasty option to add if you want to get some non-meat dishes.

Overall a great option on the Drive.

Lee's Famous Recipe Chicken1475 Prairie Ave, #101B, Port Coquitlam
If you're looking for Fried Chicken...
Submitted Saturday, April 6, 2013 - 1:01pm [Take-out]

Once in a while I get the craving for fried chicken and head to Lee's for take out. As far as the fast food type fried chicken options in the lower mainland, Lee's is pretty good as long as you're not expecting gourmet. Not the type of place you would sit and eat but it's clean and the family that own it are very nice.

A 4 piece combo with lots of fries and gravy is about $10. The lunch combo is $8.99

Chicken:

They have a choice of Original or Crunchy Spicy chicken and I always get the spicy. The chicken is crunchy not greasy with good flavor with a little kick if you get the spicy version. Lee's chicken does not leave me feeling too full or bloated and is less salty than the other places. Overall a much better option compared to KFC or Churches in my opinion.

Fries:

The fries aren't the best but I like them better than KFCs coated fries. These get soggy with the gravy like old school KFC fries. They have other side dish options but I stick to the basics.

Gravy:

Pretty good gravy always smooth and the right amount of pepper and flavoring. Not too salty.

If you call ahead they'll have it ready for you to pick up.

Best Falafel2013 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Best Chicken Shawarma
Submitted Sunday, July 1, 2012 - 3:16pm [Take-out]

If you try anything at this place it's got to be the Chicken Shawarma plate. Really great flavor and all their salads and sauces are tasty. The plate comes with rice, humous, pita and your choice of salad (I get the tabouleh), condiments and sauces. Staff is super nice.

Highly recommended for a quick lunch or take out dinner.

Splitz Grill4242 Main Street, Vancouver
Great Burgers
Submitted Sunday, August 21, 2011 - 5:46pm [Dine in]

Tried Splitz after a buddy at work insisted they are his favorite burgers in the GVRD.

Had a cheesburger with fries. You can choose your toppings. The burger was juicy and char grilled just perectly and the bun complimented the meat perfectly. Fries were just ok but I was there for the main attraction. Staff were nice.

Probably in the top 3 of Vancouver's best burgers, in my opinion.

Vallarta's Mexican Restaurant2991 East Broadway, Vancouver
Authentic Mexican
Submitted Sunday, August 21, 2011 - 5:38pm [Dine in]

This little place serves up some really good Mexican food.

Have tried the Asada Tacos (soft beef) and the Chicken Enchiladas and both were really good. A friend always gets the Burrito and unless you have a big appetite you will probably take half of it home. Most dishes are in the $10 range and worth the price.

If you go at lunch and they are busy your order may take a while but the food is good and the owners are really nice. Great Mexican option in East Van.

Chez Meme Baguette Bistro4016 Hastings St., Burnaby
Yummy food - real french bistro
Submitted Sunday, August 21, 2011 - 5:30pm [Dine in]

Some colleagues at work took me to Chez Meme for lunch. Isabelle, the owner and her husband run this place and their passsion for french food shows. Isabelle is french and handles the front of house and I am guessing her husband is the chef. The place is small but very tastefully decorated.

I ordered the Beef Bourginion on a Baguette and their soup of the day (Butternut Squash) and it was amazing. The beef and the baguette were a match made in heaven andthe soup was really yummy.

All I can say is you must try this place. Everyone loved their food and the owner Isabelle is very sweet and provides great service. I just wish they were open for dinner. Will defintely be going back often.

Onyx Steakhouse & Lounge101 Morrissey Road, #7, Port Moody
Better Options Available for the Price
Submitted Wednesday, March 30, 2011 - 7:42pm [Dine in]

We have visited the Port Moody location of Onyx twice and were uderwhelmed both times.

On our first visit we were quite excited to have another option in Port Moody. I had the Prime Rib and my wife had the Arctic Char which was the market fish. All entrees are a la carte so we ordered mushrooms and organic broccolini as our sides.

The Prime Rib arrived and the portion was not large but fair enough. It was cold!? My wife said her Arctic Char was prepared well but not enough to wow anyone that eats out a lot in the lower mainland. The sides we ordered were pretty good. They charge $2.00 for extra au jus(or any suaces) which I ordered in the hopeing to warm up the cold Prime Rib they served me. The service was ok except the waiter made us wait 20 minutes for the bill...

The second time we went with friends hoping it would be better than the first time. How does a steak house consistently mess up beef dishes? I had the Ahi Tuna and the wife had a Steak and both were just ok. Our friends had the Chicken and the Ahi Tuna and the reviews were similar. The Mac and Cheese side was pretty good as was the Broccolini and the Yam Gratin. Our waitress attentive and professional this time.

One thing Onyx does have is a great wine list and a great space.

Onyx is overpriced for the quality of the food and you would be better off driving 5 minutes to the Keg in Coquitlam for better food and overall experience.

Chilli House Thai Bistro1018 Beach Avenue, Vancouver
Great Thai Food... Fantastic Location
Submitted Sunday, July 19, 2009 - 8:20pm [Dine in]

Went to Chilli House Thai Bistro for a late lunch today and was very satisfied. Great location on the water on the downtown side of false creek (Yaletown) by the marina.

They seated us at a great spot on the patio which is fabulous for people watching and having a few drinks on a hot sunny day.

We ordered the Tom Yum Kai soup, Beef Panang Curry, Chicken with Cashew Nut and Tiger Shrimp with Green Beans. All the food was really tasty and well prepared, especially the Panang Curry. Very well balanced flavors with perfect spice level.

Prices are fair and most main dishes are $11 - $14 with good portion sizes. We had lots of food left over to take home for a yummy late night meal or lunch tomorrow.

Service was fast, courteous and friendly.

We will definitely be back and I highly recommend this place.

Sushi Mori2565 Barnet Hwy, #26, Coquitlam
Sushi NO Mori
Submitted Friday, July 17, 2009 - 7:08pm [Dine in]

We've been here a few times before and each time we really enjoyed the food and experienced good to great service. The food is more authentic than the average Tri-cities sushi joints and the prices and quality are great.

However, we just had lunch there today and it was like the twilight zone! We arrived just before the lunch rush and were greeted by an waitress who showed us to a booth. Nothing out of the ordinary...

10 minutes later we haven't even got our menus and people that came in 5 minutes after us are already sipping on their green tea and ordering. On top of it she makes it to a group of 3 guys at least 4 times while we sit there wondering what the hell is going on.

Anyway, I get up and approach her and ask if she is our waitress and explain to her we haven't even received our menus yet while she tends to people that just came in.

To make a long story short we were not the only ones as about 5 take out customers and a couple of other tables that had ordered also waited to place an order etc.

The food was good as usual and no problems there.

I figured out why the service was so different from our first visits - THE OWNER WAS NOT THERE.. Usually he has that place running like clock work and he did show up by the end of our meal and boy did the attention to service change almost instantly.

I hope he does well as I can see he really goes out of his way to make sure the customers get treated right. We will still return based on the good food and his dedication.

Sushi Town2773 Barnet Hwy, #28, Coquitlam
Cheap Sushi... Sacrifice of quality
Submitted Wednesday, July 1, 2009 - 4:40pm [Dine in]

We have tried Sushi Town a few times... Nothing particularly bad but the cheap prices and sheer volume of patrons has definitely negatively impacted the service and quality.

I have been to Japan many times - Sashimi and sushi should be delicately cut to accentuate the natural taste of the fish and here they clearly do not follow the traditional Japanese method and instead you get large chunks of fish. Not bad but not that good either. Also the service suffers because they are quite busy. The servers are nice but just can't keep up with the turnover of tables.

I've had worst and if you want a lot of food for cheap prices then this is the place but if you want an authentic sushi experience this is not the place for you.

LOL at some of the comments about how this is "the be all and end all of sushi"... Slight exaggeration for sure...

Horizons100 Centennial Way, Burnaby
Great view, good food and nice service...
Submitted Tuesday, June 30, 2009 - 7:31pm [Dine in]

Horizons on Burnaby mountain offers unparalleled views and a nice dining experience. On a clear night you can see across much of the lower mainland and it's nice to walk on the manicured grounds after dinner.

The food is up to par... I had the grilled Salmon which was quite good and my girlfriend ordered the Halibut which she equally liked. The quality was what you'd expect from a place like this for the price... Nothing earth shattering or overly creative but good food and professional service in an amazing setting.

Worth a visit at least once...

We tried Italian touch on a rainy Saturday night and had a great time. The ocean view is perfect. The place is cozy and well appointed. We got a great table by the window.

The servers were all very attentive and professional. The food was tasty... We had the mussels and the crab dip to start and everyone thought their pasta entrees were well prepared.

The waiter bought everyone a shot of Limoncello at the end of the meal which was a classy touch. Overall a very nice experience - we will be back...

We hit Amelia's for breakfast once in a while and have never been disappointed.

For around $5 bucks you get 2 eggs, toast, hash browns and sausage or bacon. The service is friendly and the place is clean. A nice option if you don't want to dress up or go anywhere fancy for breakfast on a lazy Sunday...

Sultan's Delicious Donair, The1196 Lansdowne Drive, #108, Coquitlam
Good Donairs
Submitted Monday, June 29, 2009 - 8:47pm [Dine in]

Sultan's serves up good donairs and shwarma plates. Can get a little busy during lunch as their is a school across the street but they are fairly quick and the place is clean and bright.

The food is fresh and prices are fair. Prices range from about $5 for a regular donair to about $8 for a plate with salad, rice, humous and pita. Choice of garlic sauce or sweet sauce or both...

A good place to take care of a donair craving.

Wah Wing serves up consistently good food with attentive service with fair prices.

We eat in or take out at least once every two weeks and are never disappointed with the food or service. They are quick and the selection offers something for everyone. We usually get about 4 dishes and steamed rice between the two of us and always have enough left over for lunch the next day. Avg. dishes cost between $11 - $12.95.

Great Burgers off the Grill
Submitted Monday, June 29, 2009 - 8:34pm [Dine in]

having experienced Harvey's in Alberta and other provinces out east we were happy to see they have a location in the Poco Home Depot.

Burgers are made fresh to order and they taste great. This location is tiny but the young staff do a great job of taking orders and getting hem out quickly - all made to order. Definitely a step up from standard fast food burgers.

Give them a try, you won;t be disappointed!!

Jane's Restaurant4217 Hastings Street, Burnaby
Good Diner Style Breakfast
Submitted Friday, February 27, 2009 - 1:19pm [Dine in]

Tried Jane's based on the positive reviews and was pleasantly surprised. Basically a hole in the wall kind of place in Burnaby. For $3.50 you get eggs, toast, home cut potato chunks and your choice of sausage, bacon or back bacon. It was a great deal considering the meal was pretty decent.

Now don't get me wrong, if you are expecting the quality of food you'd find at the Pan Pacific this is not the place. However, if you want something comparable to a $10 meal you'd get at Whitespot, Rickey's or IHOP this comes pretty darn close.

Coffee is pretty good and the crowd is eclectic and we saw runners, firefighters, and families all enjoying a morning meal.

Our bill for two breakfasts with coffee came to about $13 bucks including tip!!

The low cost wouldn't mean much if the food hadn't been decent and it was so this is a good place for VALUE which is different than just eating at a place because it's cheap.

Shabusen Yakiniku House2993 Granville Street, Vancouver
Great Place
Submitted Tuesday, February 10, 2009 - 7:29pm [Dine in]

We have been coming to Shabusen for years and after all this time they have been able to maintain the quality (and quantity) of food.

We usually go for the "all you can eat" which includes u-grill Korean BBQ items and a copious selection of fresh sushi and salad items. They also have a la carte menu selections available as well.

The service is pretty good especially for such a busy place. You just select what you would like and the quantity, fill out your card and give it to the server. The dishes come out quickly.

The quality of the sushi fish is really great and the BBQ beef, ribs and chicken are always well marinated.

Compared to other all you can eat Korean BBQ places this place rocks and everyone should visit at least once.

Prices are decent for what you get:

Dinner All You Can Eat: $23.95/person
Lunch All You Can Eat: $13.95/person
