I think I liked it
Submitted Saturday, May 12, 2007 - 1:52pm [Dine in]

I had the lamb sandwich and dining pal had the chicken confit sandwich. It came with a salad and did not care for the dressing. The dessert was good though, can't remember the name but it had apple flavour and it was excellent. However, the prices were overpriced for what you get. It wasn't the same level as Gastropod nor some of the others in Yaletown so the prices did not fit the quality of the food. I would return to Gastropod in a heartbeat but not Fuel.

best butter chicken in town. Better than Tandoori King or the others I've been. Creamy sauce and tender chicken. The room is simple and nothing much, the service adequate for a small diner-ish place. But the butter chicken is GOOD! I am going again tomorrow cannot wait. Inexpensive so great for lunch. Closes at 7 pm so ok for dinner pick up as well.

Culinaria609 Granville St, #100, Vancouver
A test kitchen?
Submitted Sunday, May 6, 2007 - 10:48am [Dine in]

Well, we checked out Culinaria last week and I'd have to say it was disappointing. I am fully aware the kitchen is made up of students trying to be cooks/chefs so the food was not up to restaurant standard but it was not even up to a cafeteria standard. My fish and chips were served lukewarm and the yam fries were soggy. I commented that they should try crispy sweet potato fries next time. The fish were tiny strips of fish and not the regular sized I am familiar with, so they were kinda like fish sticks. My dining partner's sandwich was decent, then again, how can one screw up a sandwich. Pricing is cheap for a downtown place but there are tons of better places to spend my $10 in downtown Vancouver.

I like the room
Submitted Sunday, May 6, 2007 - 10:43am [Dine in]

but the food, meah...nothing spectacular. I have never had Filipino food before and thought everything tasted the same. I agree with a previous review that many of the dishes remind me of cuisine from other ethnic cultures. The food came out fast but were either lukewarm or cold which made me wonder if they were pre-made. The 'martinis' with slushy ice was very odd. I know this is being critical but of all the different Asian food that I've tasted, Filipino is the least enjoyable. But I gave 3 stars for ambiance, the room was comfortable. And it was inexpensive I must add, $100 for 4 people with tons of food and 6 drinks.

Akbar's Own Indian Restaurant1905 West Broadway, Vancouver
Blah
Submitted Friday, April 27, 2007 - 8:07pm [Dine in]

Not much to rave about and I know Indian food! The service is odd, at lunch due to how dead they get, its almost too attentive, at dinner, when they are busy, food becomes slow and forget about take out, they often reject any take out once there's 2-3 tables filled, that is ludicrous to hear in this city. They get swamped once more than a table fills in. The food is flavourful but portions too tiny. There's a far better place called Raga just east of this place and I was told by my friends who are South Asian that its the place THEY would go.

Vina Vietnamese Cuisine851 Denman Street, Vancouver
A million others to try
Submitted Monday, April 23, 2007 - 1:04pm [Dine in]

This is by far the WORST place for Vietnamese food. With a huge Viet population in Vancouver, there's tons of others to choose from. I was at Vina a year ago and recall the snooty service as per our reviews here. It was almost laughable, this is a Vietnamese restaurant, not Feenies, not Gothams, bad service and attitude does not belong here. The food was bland at best. The Pho we had was unspectacular. I would rather return to Pho Thai Son on East Broadway or Pho Hoa any given day.

Lombardo's Ristorante and Pizzeria970 Smithe St., Vancouver
Good Pizza
Submitted Sunday, April 1, 2007 - 10:10pm [Dine in]

So glad there's a Lombardo's in Vancouver West, no longer do we have to drive to Commercial to enjoy their pizza. The pizza here is good, thin crust and flavourful. Haven't tried the pasta here yet but I didn't care for the pasta in the Commercial Drive location so skipped it. This place has much better decor compared to the one in the decrepid mall on Commercial Drive. Definitely a good place to go for a fast bite pre or post movie at Paramount.

Pad Thai Cuisine132 E. Broadway, Vancouver
Good place for lunch!
Submitted Sunday, April 1, 2007 - 10:06pm [Dine in]

You can't beat the price, as per previous comments $5.50 for all that food and the female owner friendly service can't be beat. Yup, their Pad Thai sucked, too much ketchup. Go for their fried rice special, or egg plant with chicken or curries, can't go wrong for the price. You won't leave hungry. I used to go there at least once a week when I worked closeby.

Best lemon grass chicken or pork chop in town. They also have interesting lunch combos. We order takeout often from them and their beef brochette is generous and yummy. Their Vietnamese spring roll is huge and authentic. Decent Pho and good curry noodles.

Langos, Duck & Schnitzel
Submitted Tuesday, March 13, 2007 - 5:49pm [Dine in]

So sad that they are now closed for lunch and only open during dinner hours. I love their langos and their crispy duck (enough for 2-3 diners) is one of the best duck in the city and I can't get enuf of their pork or veal schnitzel. Service is ample which is good enough for me. I hope they open for lunch again soon as I work so close to the restaurant. Remember to rub lots of garlic on your langos.

One of the best!
Submitted Tuesday, March 13, 2007 - 5:44pm [Dine in]

Vietnamese sandwiches - amazing. Get the house special with hot peppers, it's crunchy, crispy, tasty, all in one, can't get enough, can't beat $4 price tag well.
Pho - so so, not the best Pho. Good curry noodles and beef brisket, served with rice or French baguette or noodles, your choice. Awesome. I've been there may 8-10 times and have yet to be disappointed. They get busy really early so get there before noon or you're in line. But so worth the wait I promise you.

Fast, quick, cheap and good
Submitted Monday, January 1, 2007 - 11:34pm [Dine in]

Four awesome words to describe any lunch place. For less than $10 you can be full and love the location. Staples like tempura, rolls, chicken karaage, gyoza are all here. Limited menu but I always go for their chicken karaage and rolls with a soup. That'll keep me sated and happy. I love the staff, all nice friendly Japanese students, gives this place the authentic feel similar to eating in a joint like this in Japan.

I love their steamed buns, fried shanghai noodles, sticky rice with pork floss stuffing, soy bean curb, soy bean drink, drunken chicken, it's all really tasty. Very clean room. Nice people. Amazing hot sauce. For good Shanghai food, this place is top notch.

This is NOT Thai food
Submitted Monday, January 1, 2007 - 11:04pm [Dine in]

Not one person who works or cooks in this restaurant is Thai hence nothing is remotely authentic there. I have been here once for lunch and the pad thai was basically noodles with ketchup, disgusting. We did take out tonight as everywhere else was closed on New Years Day and boy was it disappointing. Papaya salad had an entire onion in it and too much lemon juice, instead of lime. Panang curry was supposed to be dry curry with chicken but instead came full of crazy. Eggplant with basil had brocolli in them, did the run out of eggplant and substituted without asking. The spicy prawn soup was ok, edible but nothing to rave. The best item was the perfectly cooked Thai rice, sad. Definitely not ordering from them again. If our usual haunt Thai Terrace or Thai Away Home were opened, we would never have had to waste mula at this place. What a waste!

Saltlik1032 Alberni St, Vancouver
Must give credit
Submitted Monday, January 1, 2007 - 8:43pm [Dine in]

when credit's due. Been to Saltlik twice. They make good steaks, waaay better than The Keg, I prefer their NY cut to that of Gothams. and trust me, they are not as over priced as the other guys. Both times we've had a awesome server Justin who knew the menu and knew what to recommend. You must try their deep fried calimari. I cannot describe it to do it justice but it was THAT good. Steaks made to perfection. Their baked alaska was wicked, love that pistachio ice cream on a cookie. The room is classy without being too stuffy. If we ever crave steak, there's only this place, no where else.

Glowbal Grill and Satay Bar1079 Mainland Street, Vancouver
Definite good eats
Submitted Monday, January 1, 2007 - 8:38pm [Dine in]

This is the one restaurant in Yaletown that I have returned again and again. I love their satays, their servers are fun and friendly, they make great drinks and are always reliable for a good eat. Even on busy nights like Dine Out Vancouver, they churn out awesome plates and good service despite the lines of people waiting. Their Sunday brunch is the best. I don't know how they do it but on their menu is an awesome fish and chips for only $10! We must have been there like at least 20 times and each time, just as satisfying if not better. They have made so many accomodations for us, like special requests from the kitchen. rushed dining as we had to make a concert, everything. For a good dining experience in Yaletown, Glowbal rules!

Chada Thai Fine Cuisine2991 Lougheed Hwy, #107, Coquitlam
Now, THIS is Thai Food
Submitted Monday, January 1, 2007 - 8:13pm [Dine in]

Ventured into Chada Thai all the way from Vancouver with best friend in November. Loved it. Pad Thai with tamarind sauce was authentic. Albeit the portion was small and price a tad higher than most, this restaurant is not your mom and pops Thai place. It's Thai food served with style and the quality more than makes up for it. The red curry with chicken was good but not spectacular in my opinion. It came with bamboo shoots and it was spicy and did contain too few pieces of chicken. Slithers of chicken breast don't come expensive so I was surprised more wasn't included. The stuffed chicken wings, OH MY GOD, they were something to write home about. It's hard to describe but it was the best fried chicken one can ever have. My best friend inhaled hers and we wanted more. As there was only 2 of us and a huge menu, we wanted to try everything but alas our stomachs were too tiny. Damn. Their friend banana and 3 types of ice cream dessert was unique and an amazing end to a satisfying dinner. I cannot wait to return. If you've been on the hunt for good authentic pad thai, look no further and no longer do I have to drive to US just to enjoy authnetic Thai cuisine anymore.

Just a view that's all
Submitted Sunday, November 5, 2006 - 8:53pm [Dine in]

I agree with the last post. This is my second visit and my previous visit was a month after they opened. And to my disappointment, they still have not gotten it right. First visit we had to wait 1.5 hours for a reservation that was made weeks ago. The visit today, our food came 45 minutes late. The bill took 20 minutes for the server to run it through. The restaurant was NOT busy. What about some efficiency so you can turn the tables faster? The 'free' hot chocolate and croissant is a nice touch but it's sad they have not gotten their act together. This will be my last visit and I will have nothing positive to say about this place to any one that ask me, well maybe for the view, that's it.

Great venue blah food
Submitted Tuesday, September 5, 2006 - 9:46pm [Dine in]

My expectations are too high for these tapas restaurants. The ambience, decor is amazing, it feels like you are dining in a different city, the location is not the greatest as they needed bouncers, yes BOUNCERS for a restaurant as the venue is close to pubs and clubs where the bridge and tunnelers congregate so security is needed. The food was unique but lacked in taste. Fusion to a point of bland I thought. They need to kick up the spices a tad. Nothing stood out for me unfortunately. I also found the tables for 4 really cramped. I'd go again, but will definitely eat something before I go as the tiny portions did not suffice. I'd go again for a snack and martini but for a good dinner I'd go to its sister restaurant Glowbal or Coast instead.

Red Door Pan Asian Grill2996 Granville St, Vancouver
Ok Food, Nice Room
Submitted Tuesday, August 22, 2006 - 12:02pm [Dine in]

Don't go here if you are looking for anything remotely authentic to what you might get in a true Asian restaurant. It's a fusion restaurant so don't go expecting more than that. Our last visit there on Sunday we had quite a few dishes and they were quite decent. The Pad Thai was not bad. They used tamarinc sauce for the Pad Thai which is how it should be and not tomato sauce or ketcup as used in Papaya Hut or Thai House etc so I'd give their effort a plus for this. Shaking Beef was good and their Fried Calamari was stellar, a bit like pub food. Their deep fried prawn was good. Grilled prawns not so much. For the portions (they are small) it's pricey, not a place to go hungry but more like snacks with drinks? The patio looks fun but view of street and entrance to Meinhardt not my kind of view.
