Chill Winston3 Alexander St., Vancouver
Good Brunch
Submitted Sunday, March 6, 2011 - 8:59pm [Dine in]

Recently dropped in at Chill Winston for the first time while playing tour guide for a co-worker from Hong Kong. We were walking around Gastown and needed a brunch fix...I was aware of some of the negative reviews on here but thought we'd give it a try anyway. I'm glad we did, the service was actually really good, very friendly staff, attentive but not overbearing. The food was also good, I had an eggs benedict which came with roast potatoes and salad, my friend had the pancetta & wild mushroom skillet. His only comment was the meat was a bit salty, but he's also not used to Western food, and overall we both enjoyed our meals. And we had the perfect spot to enjoy the morning, sitting at the front by the window, taking in the views of the street and people passing by. It was a great intro for someone visiting Vancouver (and Canada) for the first time.

Nirvana Indian Cuisine2313 Main Street, Vancouver
Overpriced Mediocre Food
Submitted Monday, August 16, 2010 - 10:21am [Dine in]

I wish I would have checked the reviews on here before ordering from this place. Delivery took almost an hour and when the food arrived I thought that half the order was missing. No, the portions are just REALLY small for the price. If the food were outstanding I could maybe see how the prices are justified, but it wasn't that great, comparable to something you'd get at a cheap food court joint. $14 for barely 2 cups of butter chicken is really poor value. Won't be ordering from here again, there are many other better options out there.

Nuba207B West Hastings Street, Vancouver
Hummus!
Submitted Tuesday, August 3, 2010 - 4:32pm [Dine in]

First time visiting this below street-level spot at the far east of West Hastings and overall a good experience. The menu offers a range of meat, vegetarian, and vegan options and based on what we ordered it was obvious that everything was very fresh. Between the two of us we shared "le grand feast", which although may not live up to the name in quantity, was definitely a great way to enjoy a variety of menu items all at once with lots of Middle Eastern spices and flavors. Aside from the chicken and prawns, both cooked perfectly, the highlight was the hummus and pita. There's something so good about a simple dish involving bread and dip, and it makes a world of difference when the bread is fresh. Our server was great, very friendly, attentive, not over-bearing, and really knowledgeable of the menu. She didn't even hesitate when we asked about a substitution for our order, the pita bread was always refilled quickly, and her drink recommendation was spot on. One minor downside could be the perception of value, given the many cheap falafel joints to be found downtown, but there's a huge difference in quality and overall dining experience between that and the fresh, organic, etc. foods to be found at Nuba. If you've never tried Lebanese food before this is a great place to take the plunge.

Shota Sushi & Grill5688 Yew Street, Vancouver
Decent Sushi in Kerrisdale, Creative Menu
Submitted Friday, July 23, 2010 - 11:34am [Dine in]

Compared to many of the "Japanese" restaurants in Vancouver this one is pretty good. Visited for the first time a few months ago on a friend's recommendation and returned a few times since then. I agree with some of the other reviewers who've found the menu to be a bit pricey, but it's still worth checking out. The food has always been extremely fresh and the service has been friendly and attentive. The menu covers all the bases and also offers many unique and creative rolls and dishes worth trying. Even with the simple dishes like sunomono and gomae, there is a noticeable difference in the quality and taste compared to cheaper restaurants. Will be back again.

Talay Thai Restaurant8369 Granville Street, Vancouver
Yum!
Submitted Friday, June 4, 2010 - 1:26pm [Dine in]

There is not much I can add to all the great reviews below, other than I agree 100%. The food at this place is fantastic, definitely some of the best Thai I've had in Vancouver (or ever, but I've never been to Thailand), and the service was great. LOVE the outfits ladies! The space is small and compact and the last time we were there it was full of people, but it wasn't uncomfortable and had a really positive vibe.

Don't waste your time or money...
Submitted Friday, June 4, 2010 - 1:15pm [Dine in]

I work near this Bread Garden and the few times I've had to resort to a quick lunch and dropped by the food and service have always been terrible. Everything is pre-made in a messy looking display case and to heat-up they just throw it in a microwave. The people behind the counter are not polite at all, on one occasion the person ringing in my order chatted on the phone the entire time, and this was after standing there waiting for her to finish her conversation. Unfortunately there are not many other options in the neighborhood unless you drive, which is why this place must still be in business.

Koko Japanese Restaurant2053 East Hastings St, Vancouver
Great East Van Sushi
Submitted Friday, April 23, 2010 - 4:34pm [Dine in]

Koko's is great and since our first visit on a friend's recommendation we've been back many times, it's the best sushi place we've found so far in the area. As other reviewers have mentioned it is a bit pricier for the neighborhood, but it's well worth it. This is *Japanese* sushi, so much better than the miscellaneous style that is found throughout this city. You can taste it in the rice, in the freshness of the fish, and the uniqueness of many of their menu items. And the service has always been fantastic, very friendly, always prompt, and you never have to ask for tea refills. Definitely would recommend trying it out.

OK Thai on the Drive
Submitted Monday, April 12, 2010 - 11:06am [Dine in]

We ate here recently for the first time after checking out the reviews here. The food was ok, but nothing made it stand out above similar restaurants in the area. We ordered chicken red curry, realizing that this is one of those Thai places that serves a more soup-like curry (i.e., when you spoon it over your pile of rice it runs through and forms a puddle on your plate). It's a matter of personal preference, we just like curry sauces that are slightly thicker/creamier. The beef salad was also ok, although the meat seemed like it had been cooked a while before and was a bit tough. This type of salad is far better when the meat is freshly cooked and tossed with the other ingredients just before serving. Our noodle dish was good, fresh and not all stuck together. Service was pleasant and attentive, which was a nice plus since many other spots on the Drive seem to fall short in that area.

Lime Restaurant1130 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Good Find on the Drive
Submitted Friday, November 6, 2009 - 5:17pm [Dine in]

Been meaning to try this one for a while, but with all the cheap sushi places around it was never at the top of the list. Glad we finally dropped in though, the food was fantastic, very creative, and worth the extra cost. We had the lobster roll, tuna tataki, tuna gomae, panko portabella, crispy avocado, fried gyoza...all just awesome! Only small complaint would be the miso soup is a bit generic for $3.

Service was good, a lot better than some places on the Drive that take a very laid back approach which can seem indifferent at times.

Low rating on the ambiance as we didn't realize (and weren't given any heads-up) that there would be a live performance (7pm on a Tuesday). The place was almost empty and we were sat in the front area, and halfway through the meal someone jumped on stage and started singing; the volume was too loud for table conversation and we could barely understand the server. I'm all for live shows, but seemed like an odd venue and day/time for it. They could also dim the lights a bit more in the evening.

Great Food, Not So Good Service
Submitted Friday, October 23, 2009 - 4:24pm [Dine in]

Really great Indian takeout/delivery. We order from here often for our butter chicken and naan fix. Don't expect great service though, on the phone they're rude and in person not much better. Also, if you order online don't expect the confirmation call, we always have to phone them to make sure the order was received.
