Mosaic Bar and Grill655 Burrard St, Vancouver
Excellent Lunch
Submitted Friday, October 19, 2007 - 1:08am [Dine in]

Great for a business lunch - central downtown location, with excellent food to boot. Who would have known?

I've been "blessed" with the opportunity to eat at a few Hyatts in the past year as I've been traveling for work, and they usually have pretty tasteless menus at high prices. Although this Hyatt isn't cheap, it breaks the Hyatt mold with very tasty food.

Try the roasted duck salad (with arugala, roasted beets, truffle sauce and lots odf juicy pieces of duck) for a quick and flavorful lunch. Dessert also worthwhile, if you have room after your generous lunch portion!

Vij's Rangoli1488 West 11th Avenue, Vancouver
Great food for takeout or dine in
Submitted Friday, October 19, 2007 - 12:55am [Dine in]

Like many others, I first experienced Rangoli when arriving to Vij's and realizing the line and wait would be too long that night (although don't get me wrong - Vij's lets you sit in the bar and drink from an extensive wine list, and bring around free appies while you wait so normally worth the wait!)

It's definitely not a fancy dine out experience, but rather a trendy, quick bite place. All of the food is absolutely stunning, and is just as good if you get it to go (which you might like to do if you don't like sitting in a small area near others). As someone else mentioned, it's also available at Capers, but eating it fresh at Rangoli is so much better.

For dessert I highly recommend the Thomas Haas chocolates. He and Vij combine chocolates with Indian spices to come up with the most exquisite and unique flavours. A definite must to end your meal!

Goldfish Pacific Kitchen1118 Mainland Street, Vancouver
Great food, neat place
Submitted Friday, October 19, 2007 - 12:46am [Dine in]

Went here with a group of four tonight, and really enjoyed ourselves. Someone else had chosen the restaurant and I was wary since reading the other reviews on here, but I'm really not sure those people know what they're talking about! Sure, $35 for a set meal (appy, meal, dessert) isn't cheap - but if you're looking for cheap, go to Milestone's or Earl's. If you're looking for a nice night out, loosen the purse strings and enjoy yourself a little!

The food was great. One of our party had the Taste of Yaletown (cured tuna, arctic char, creme brule) and really enjoyed it. The other two had the wok seared beef, and the prawns on rice vermicelli. Both really enjoyed their meals. I had the seared halibut on a lime coconut sauce and it was fantastic!

For starters we had the fried squid, which was really good - just don't come looking for calamari as it's not garlic-doused as one might expect. Really tender and tasty nonetheless.

Dessert at the table: creme brulee, banana spring rolls and chocolate sushi. Sorry, folks - thumbs up for all three. The creme brulee was some of the best I've had in a long time.

Don't believe the bad hype: I went in expecting gross food and bad service, and we had fantastic food and lovely service. Definitely worth checking out!

Salsa & Agave Mexican Grill1223 Pacific Boulevard, Vancouver
Good lunch, if not a little small
Submitted Wednesday, October 17, 2007 - 6:40pm [Dine in]

Fantastic, fresh food at this new little Mexican joint. The meat and pork are extremely tender and melt in your mouth, and all of the food has fantastic flavour.

Only real complaint is that the servings were a little small if you're really hungry. For me it was fine for size but for some guys, lunch is a big meal.

Definitely worth going to - much fresher and tastier than most little places in the area.

Osaka Sushi1361 Burrard Street, Vancouver
Good sushi at decent prices
Submitted Wednesday, October 17, 2007 - 6:37pm [Dine in]

Always fresh sushi, always friendly service. Usually really quick, as well. The meals (specials) are tasty and they have seating outdoors in the summer, which is nice - not perfect, since you're on Burrard Street, but better than sitting inside, which is what you'll do anywhere else in the area.

Only complaint is I saw the sushi chef smoking while cleaning up inside one night. Kind of gross. Not sure if the food was already put away or not, but you'd think you could wait the extra 15 minutes to keep the place cleaner.

Red Door Pan Asian Grill2996 Granville St, Vancouver
Good food - not meant to be authentic!
Submitted Friday, March 2, 2007 - 6:36pm [Dine in]

A gang of us happened by one weekend and were surprised to find the Red Door. The food platters were small (I think that's why they mentioned they were SHARE plates, not MEALS) but excellently prepared and presented. The fusion is great - whoever thinks they are coming for authentic, think again: the menu has items like calamari (done like the Greeks), not "squid". If you want authentic, try the New Town Bakery in China Town (also great, but authentic, not fusion!)

Red Door does a good job of providing a high end dining experience with really tasty food, done with an Asian flare. Definitely recommended.

Khai Thai Cuisine2020 Oxford Connector, #203, Port Coquitlam
Great lunch, Slooooow Dinner
Submitted Thursday, December 14, 2006 - 3:19pm [Dine in]

Went here for lunches a few times and it's pretty good. Fresh, quick and somewhat reasonable ($11 for a combo).

Unfortunately returned with a group of 6 one night and evenings were really slow. Took at least 25 mins to get seated, and then even when all tables were empty, another 20 before we could order. We were asked if we wanted drinks and quickly took the opportunity to order food as well - not sure how long we'd have waited otherwise. There are no combos available at dinner so you must order a la carte.

On the flip side, the food in the evening, tho slow to arrive, was fantastic. So fresh, warm. And the servers are all extremely friendly.

Definitely worth a try for lunch, or if you have some time to spare in the evening.

Taco Shack1937 Cornwall Avenue, Vancouver
Unfortunate Experience
Submitted Tuesday, September 5, 2006 - 6:03pm [Dine in]

In fact, so unfortunate that it imspired me to open an account here at dinehere.ca!

Found a referral to the new restaurant on a Vancouver blog, and since it is a few blocks from home decided to give it a try.

When my guy and I got there, there was one person being served. We were next in line, but the young guy working there saw two cute girls walking in, turned to us and said "I think they're next." Turned to them and said, "Can I take your order?" Can't fault the guy for trying ;) Anyway, a little annoyed but in no rush so didn't worry about it.

Then another client walked in, asked if we were in line. Yes. So when the guy working was done serving his cuties, turns to the OTHER guy and takes the order. I said "We were next," to which he replied, "Sorry...I'll help this guy first now." Was a lot more annoyed by then but waited it out...wanted to give the food a chance because this was only one employee.

While waiting, another customer already dining offered to the owner, "You should have the girl working here stop touching her hair so much when she serves food." He asked, "Too much?" "ANY amount is gross!" he replied. So the owner walked off.

Truth be told I was impressed with the food - until the second last bite. Took a bite of the burrito and something hard and crunchy was in there. Spit it out, and found either some melted clear plastic or perhaps clear masking tape, or the wrapping from the meat...something big and not food was in the middle of the food, anyway, and I guess that was the last straw. I spit it out and decided that it was time to write a review so that others are warned of the lack of cleanliness and service.

I wanted to have it work out, but unfortunately have to call this a DO NOT VISIT review. Suggest trying Andale's on Davie or Broadway for real Mexican eats.
