Red Chilli Szechuan Cuisine741 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver
Awesome Chinese Take-out
Submitted Friday, May 11, 2007 - 5:00pm [Dine in]

The only place on the North Shore we go to for Chinese Food. Our favorites include, Genral Tao Chicken, Szechuan Green Beans and Chicken with Cashews & Tofu. Their spicy dishes are tasty, their portions are plentiful and there is always enough for leftovers the next day. Highly recommend it!!!

Section 31039 Mainland Street, Vancouver
Identity Crisis
Submitted Sunday, January 14, 2007 - 11:35am [Dine in]

What kind of place is SECTION 3? How are they trying to present themselves? It is a bit hard to tell really. I'm not talking about the cuisine, I'm talking about the look & feel of the place.

First there's at the decor: It's Asian meets Amsterdam meets Bachelor Pad. There's Budda statues & pics all over, a giant "nerd" sign behind the bar, red lights and pictures of naked ladies on the wall. It's all good but no real cohesion.

Then theres at the staff: it looks like they came on shift after a 48-hour party, without changing their clothes, the bartenders are waiters and therefor rarely make it to your table, and most staff look like they would rather be anywhere but at Section 3.

At least the food is good. Lots of different items to choose from and all were tasty. The CALAMARI, YAM FRIES, AHI TUNA and 3-DIP PITA were all favorites. Will we go back? Yes because food reigns supreme and the food at SECTION 3 is good, I just hope they figure out who they want to be.

Shota Sushi and Grill127 3rd Street East, North Vancouver
Try the special rolls!!!
Submitted Monday, January 8, 2007 - 10:57pm [Dine in]

A little pricey and the service isn't top notch but try the "special rolls", they are great. The MAPLE ROLL and the SCALLOP MAGMA ROLL in particular keep us coming back for some more Shota Sushi. Overall, not the best Sushi Place in town but there are far worse!

Lazy Bay Cafe & Bakery1151 Mt Seymour Road, North Vancouver
Slow service, overpriced food.
Submitted Friday, January 5, 2007 - 2:30pm [Dine in]

$9.00 for a meatless breakfast burrito? I don't think so.

Most of their menu items are quite pricey even though on the plus side it's cooked right in front of you in their open concept kitchen. I do enjoy their baked goods (the chedder cheese score especially) but I cannot fathom paying almost 10 dollars for a wrap that has veggies, cheese, egg and salsa in it.

As for the service it is quite slow, granted it's usually busy in there, but sometimes I see staff standing around chatting when there is a free cash register and a line up of people ready to order/pay.

Decent for a quick coffee and baked good. Overpriced if you are looking for a meal.

Mumbai Masala333 Brooksbank, #770, North Vancouver
Best Indian in a while!
Submitted Wednesday, January 3, 2007 - 11:14am [Dine in]

I love this place! I've been here over a dozen times and I keep coming back for the flavors and the prices. The food is tasty, fresh and relatively cheap. The Chicken Masala, Vindaloo, Dal, Chana Masala, Lamb Korma & Garlic Naan are all regular choices. But try the Tandoori Lamb (one of the more expensive dishes on the menu at $16) it is a taste sensation.

Some North Van folk swear by Palkis on 15th, not me, I've tried both and keep coming back to Mumbai Masala.

Red Lion Bar & Grill, The2427 Marine Drive, West Vancouver
You call this pub food???
Submitted Wednesday, January 3, 2007 - 11:10am [Dine in]

It's better than most and up there with some fine dining establishments as well. The Red Lion is a regular haunt for us as the food is always top notch, the service quick and the manager (I believe his name is Mario) seems to always know everyone in the place. Try the Sausage/Marscapone Crostini, the 2-minute Lifeguard Calamari, or the Seafood Crepe, they are all tasty.

Hapa Izakaya1479 Robson St, Vancouver
Glad I gave it a second chance...
Submitted Wednesday, January 3, 2007 - 11:05am [Dine in]

The first time I went to Hapa, the meal was awful, the service poor and the ambiance less than memorable... that was two years ago.

I recently went there again as part of a party of four and I am glad I did. While the prices are a bit high for the amount of food you get, there is no denying that the flavor and presentation are solid. Each dish (out of the 13 that we all shared) was tasty in their own unique ways, the service was much improved and Justin (I believe he was the manager) was an extremely gracious host.

We will definitely go back!

Best damn steak in a while!!!
Submitted Wednesday, January 3, 2007 - 11:00am [Dine in]

I am a steak eater, I've tried steak at almost every restaurant that offers one. Saltlik offers some of the best steaks in town guarenteed. I had the Blue Cheese Steak, my wife had the basic grilled (it's a shame I call it basic but it's the first one on the menu, the one drizzled with black truffle oil) and both were sensational.

Saltlik is a great looking place, with a fast & friendly staff, a solid menu of choices and decent prices but forget everything else, try the steak!

Cactus Club Cafe1136 Robson Street, Vancouver
Reliable but not worth fighting for...
Submitted Monday, September 18, 2006 - 11:31am [Dine in]

While i will always enjoy the Kung Pao noodles, the Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowl and the Chili Chicken, the prices keep getting higher and the service keeps getting worse. Too bad.

Cactus Club once stood high on the mountain of goodness but it is definitely sliding. The prices don't warrent the food.

Mill Marine Bistro, The1199 West Cordova Street, Vancouver
Place too pricey, food too awful!
Submitted Tuesday, July 4, 2006 - 8:58am [Dine in]

I don't care how good the view is, the food was so bad that no one in our table of 8 wants to go back to THE MILL ever again. The Red, Hot & Blue Pizza turned out to be a tiny 7" bland pre-fab crust, with tons of cheese and little spice or blue cheese for $14??? Nachos for $14, with $3 for extra cheese and $3 for guacamole? A $15 salad filled with iceberg lettuce?

I'm sorry, I know that Vancouver can be expensive to eat in but I also know that Vancouver has some quality to it. THE MILL has no quality to their food, at least these 8 dishes that we had didn't. There are far better dining choices out there and some of them have a better patio and a better view. Stay away from THE MILL if you can!

Deep Cove Pizza4385 Gallant Avenue, North Vancouver
The best Pizza Jerry... THE BEST
Submitted Thursday, May 4, 2006 - 2:52pm [Dine in]

I know what you are thinking... "I have to go out to Deep Cove to get some good pizza"? Well, the answer is "yes".

There are many greats in town but honestly Deep Cove Pizza continually rises above the competition, it is one of my Top 3 Best Pizza joints in Vancouver and for take out, no better option especially if you live in the area.

But if you don't, it's worth a trip out since the Cove itself is worth a visit. See the sights! Stay for the pizza!

They say limited seating but honestly, limited means 3 seats. Deep Cove Pizza survives off of take out & delivery business.

Stick to the Italian Pizza choices as you can go anywhere for good standard pizza, even though here, it tastes that much better!

La Bodega Restaurant & Tapa Bar1277 Howe Street, Vancouver
Prawns & Sangria??? Yes Please!
Submitted Thursday, May 4, 2006 - 11:45am [Dine in]

Really, that's all I have to say. The Sangria alone is worth a visit but be sure to have the Chili Garlic Prawns, the calamari, the potatoes and the ceviche. All good, all tasty and be sure to wash it down with some more of that magical elixer they call Sangria.

Circolo1116 Mainland St., Vancouver
Blown away...
Submitted Tuesday, May 2, 2006 - 3:57pm [Dine in]

We tried this restaurant during DINE OUT VANCOUVER and loved it so much, we went back for a full-price meal.

Despite the steep prices, the food is incredible, each and every course was flavorful and memorable. I highly recommend Circolo for a great Italian meal!

Andreas Restaurant153 16th Street West, North Vancouver
Classic Pizza!
Submitted Tuesday, May 2, 2006 - 3:53pm [Dine in]

I don't know if I would call Andreas an "Italian Restuarant" but it's definately got some "mediterrainian flair". The food is pretty standard but the pizzas are classic: tasty, cheesy, greasy goodness. Andreas is a bit of a North Shore tradition, it's open late and usually steadily busy, give it a shot for the pizza.

Memphis Blues Barbeque House1465 W. Broadway, Vancouver
Lead Belly Goodness!!
Submitted Tuesday, May 2, 2006 - 3:48pm [Dine in]

It's hard to leave Memphis Blues without a limp for one simple reason: PULLED PORK SAMMICH! This little devil is a tasty beauty that is hard to resist. Actaully, all the BBQ at Memphis Blues is tasty but the pulled pork stands tall as my favorite. The prices may strike you as high at first glance but the portions are filling and when you walk out the door, filled to the gills and walking funny cause you ate too much... you'll know you had a great meal!!!

Surprisingly good!
Submitted Tuesday, May 2, 2006 - 3:42pm [Dine in]

Despite some not so flattering reviews (and a love for spicy food), I gave the RED DOOR a shot and found it quite enjoyable. The decor and ambiance fit the feel and I found my spicy choices (CHILI CRUSTED CALAMARI and RAGON FIRE CHICKEN) very tasty. Overall, I enjoyed the meal and look forward to eating there again.

Quattro At Whistler4319 Main St, Whistler
Best Italian in Whistler
Submitted Tuesday, May 2, 2006 - 3:37pm [Dine in]

It doesn't get better than QUATTRO AT WHISTLER, the food, the flavors, the style, the substance, it all stands out. Favorites include: RADICCHIO BOCCONCINI, SPAGHETTI QUATRRO, FETTUCCINE TARTUFATE, BRANZINO ALLA CROSTA and FILETTO ETRUSCA. Yes it is pricey but you get what you pay for, a fantastic meal and a night out to remember.

Good but not Great
Submitted Tuesday, May 2, 2006 - 3:01pm [Dine in]

While it has a fantastic location and a creative menu, the portion size and flavor suffer and you really don't get what you pay for. But on a fantastic summer day, the patio/location is hard to beat. It's good but not great and I have eaten there four times!

Great Taste!
Submitted Tuesday, May 2, 2006 - 2:55pm [Dine in]

Don't let the term "fast food" throw you off from coming to Steamrollers and enjoying some good food. The TORTILLA SOUP is fantastic and if you get a burrito, be sure and get it "wet". Also the TOMMY and the FRISCO are well worth a try. Much better than a burger and oodles of flavor!

Aoki Sushi1888 W. Broadway St, Vancouver
Love the Spicy Tuna
Submitted Sunday, April 30, 2006 - 12:16pm [Dine in]

As a sushi lover I have to say that SUSHI AOKI offers the best homemade "spicy sauce" around. Great taste along with spice that compliments all the sushi and sashimi it's served with. Try the SPICY TUNA DON, cheap, quick and tasy. You won't be disappointed.
