Modern Club3446 Dunbar, Vancouver
Good Food, Albeit on the Expensive Side
Submitted Thursday, December 13, 2007 - 8:43pm [Dine in]

Modern Club is a cozy little place; unfortunately, perhaps a bit too little.

Modern Club is most well-known for their Kansai-style okonomiyaki, a Japanese festival food likened to a pancake. Their food is cooked "teppan" style and is usually served hot and fresh, and all of their dishes are delicious. Unfortunately, they are fairly steeply priced, perhaps moreso than some people would be willing to pay for. Still, one cannot deny that their food is good, even if expensive.

Despite being so small the place is usually packed full of people at night, which seems to make them rather understaffed during busy weekends. I've had waitresses forget an order or two more than once on a packed night, and sometimes even a simple refill of tea will take forever. However, their staff are very friendly and when the place is near-empty they go that extra mile to service you, so I suppose it's six of one and half-dozen of the other.

The ambiance is extremely suited to a restaurant of their scale and their seats are delightfully comfy. I've whiled away more than a few hours catching up with friends up at the bar, or discussing the latest developments at a table.

If I had to sum up Modern Club in a single line, it would be this: Good but Expensive. Those two adjectives describe this place pretty well - it's an excellent location for, say, a business meeting, but if you're looking for quick dinner, look elsewhere.

Curry Point514 West Broadway, Vancouver
Great Food, Excellent Prices, Awesome Service
Submitted Thursday, December 13, 2007 - 8:28pm [Dine in]

Every time I pass by Broadway and Cambie I simply can't resist the urge to stop by this wonderful little restaurant.

Many people seem to find the food "watered-down" or "bland", but to be honest I have not found many other places whose butter chicken is more delicious than it is here. Most of the other dishes are solid, as you cannot expect too much from what rightly qualifies as fast food; in particular however I also enjoy the peas and cheese. The naan is also always fresh, right out of the oven, so that's a plus.

The service is amazing. The staff are friendly and I can even relate this little anecdote: this one time I brought a friend to the store to try out the butter chicken. They happened to be out at that moment, so the guy at the counter promised us free butter chicken the next time we stopped by. Sure enough, we went again a week later, and? Free butter chicken.

The ambiance is warm and fairly nice for such a seemingly laid-back place. It's always pleasurable taking my time to finish my meal, and I often stay well after the food is done with my friends chatting or simply hanging out.

Overall, Curry Point is truly outstanding and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an unbeatable combination of great food at great prices.
