Buffet at River Rock, The8811 River Rd., Richmond
Hello Denny's!
Submitted Tuesday, February 22, 2011 - 5:18pm [Dine in]

Hey, if you want to pay $15 for some fresh cut fruit, coffee, juice, toast-it-yourself bagels, and artery clogging breakfast food then be the River Rock's breakfast buffet guest.

Honestly, IHOP and Denny's outmatch the food at this buffet. The hashbrowns are oily and soggy, the scrambled eggs were clearly packaged liquid egg, the "pancakes" and french toast had to have been produced by Eggo. The eggs benedict were ok granted I knew it was an actual fresh egg but the Hollandaise sauce was fairly weak and limited.

Now, the buffet does have fresh bread and bagels to toast as well as a juice machine, and fresh cuts of basic fruits like watermelon, grapes, apples, oranges, cantaloupe etc. So after prodding at my styrofoam hashbrowns and pancakes I got a plate of fruit, cottage cheese, and toast that would be worth about $5 at any corner cafe.

Ultimately, if you get a free voucher it's worth it but don't pay for it.

This is a great option if you're looking for a change in Steveston from the regular fish and chips fare. It's a small hole-in-the-wall family run business that's clean and affordable.

The food is really tasty. The curries, roti canai, and chicken skewers are great. You have to love the peanut satay sauce. Dishes have the basics: Noodles or rice - protein (tofu an option) - veggies - and variety of choices of curry or Malay sauces. It's fairly cheap as dishes cost $10-15 and you can share with rice on the side. Rice is $1 for a bowl and beers are $4.75 so they don't nickel and dime you.

The atmosphere is cozy and mostly decorated with Ikea furniture and dishes so don't expect a black tie affair here. In fact sometimes the little girl will come by and have a chat with you about her favourite toy so you gotta mind kids.

Overall, this will fill you up with delicious Asian fare for a decent price.

This place is horrendous. It survives off of being right next to the Cineplex and bowling alleys.

-Terrible frozen-2-fried food, overzealous alcohol license rules in the bowling alley, and understaffed.

-And no, slopping on generic minced garlic on top of pre-cut oily fries served with processed chipotle mayo and serving it in a cone is not worth $6. Be a bit more creative.

-Asking bowlers for credit cards prior to being served is also beyond comprehension from a restaurant. This is their dine-and-dash policy. "Excuse me ma'am I'll have to run your credit card through and then serve you trumped up Fisherman's Cove frozen dinners."

-Serve napkins when serving finger food. Especially when bowling.

-This is basic pub food with a pathetic attempt at flair. For the most parts it seems frozen. Of course the nachos are good but how can you really screw up nachos?

-And if you eat and drink from the bowling alley expect to be treated like a 17 year-old.

-The beer is decent but service is always slow because they're understaffed.

-If you have a problem they are terrible at problem resolution.
