Golden Pearl Restaurant333 Brooksbank, #128, North Vancouver
What Happened?
Submitted Monday, June 21, 2010 - 7:33pm [Dine in]

I've been going to the pearl for many years now and some thing has changed and not for the better.
You get off late and want to pick something up and take it home but the last few time it's just getting bad.

Meal for one: Steamed veggies..............................It is not just a head of broccoli with a hint of carrot.
Sweet and sour pork..........................Dry chewy and not as good as it use to be
Beef chow suey.................................To much corn starch or ??? and just not enough meat.
Chicken chow mein,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,You now that slopping sound you get from a can of canned cranberry sauce? Well that's the sound the chow mein made when I placed some on my plate. YUM!

It's over cooked or something but it's just not as good as it use to be. I don't know why. May be the costs have gone up and they need to reuse some foods. Or reheat a wrong order int he micro wave but day old sweet and
sour pork and glumpy beef and sloppy chick chow mein is just right. And as I was very hungry I tried to eat it but EEEEE? So I took it back and after a half hour they gave me a refund. I guess pointing out how bad the food is in front of other customers with a raised voice was more than they wanted.

So try if you want but I will no longer be going back.

Just raise the prices and I'll pay it for something that is worth it.

Dog bone
Submitted Wednesday, June 16, 2010 - 11:28pm [Dine in]

I have never been to this restaurant before and will never go back.
I like many people this day (over heard "I've never been here before") tried it out for the first time. And given that there was no longer a crowd North Vancouver Persians eating there I should have taken this as a hint not to eat there.

It use to busy and now not so much and I'll tell you why.

I ordered the Lamb Kabob and rice ($10.00) and received a dog bone (well I would be embarrassed to give this bone to my dog) and dry rice and a hard burnt rice. These were not Kabobs (two skewers with five pieces of meat on each one) as in the photo and what one would expect but a lamb leg joint with little meat and much joint cartilage yummmmm.

I asked for a take out container as I was going to just eat a bit there and take the rest for later so I guess she thought that I would not find out how they screwed me until I got home. But as I sat down she kepted on asking me if I was going to take it home and looking sheepishly at me with a bit of worry on her face.
I guess most people would not take that bone and call it a meal. But here I am telling you what happened to me that you may save your money,

The rest of the take out container was rice. I think it was meant to have some flavour to it but it didn't. And the best part was the hard as a rock burnt rice to break your teeth on chwn toy She told me that this was the best part. Thanks not saying much.

But it did come with a drink and you needed this to wash down the dry rice.
It was good at one time just by judging by the number of customers that I have seen there in the past but not any more.

The other food in the hot boxes was some sort of veggie slop that didn't look that great. It might be something that they eat all the time but not for this cowboy. The prices were high for what you get.

All that I wanted was a meat two veggie and a carb at a good price. And what I got was a dog bone and dry rice and a chew toy.

Panago Pizza1981 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver

The pizza comes in a brown card board box with no lining. And at first when the pizza is warm you can not taste the cardboard. But when it's cold and sits in the fridge overnight you can taste nothing but cardboard. YUCK! If they just placed an inexpensive piece of parchment paper on the bottom you would not get this. Well I would hope that the condensation would not drip upon the pizza from the top nor the water vapor release the taste from with in the box. But I will never find out. They have a great web site and the prices are Ok for what you get and they always have specials but no matter what the price it still will taste like cardboard. They have salads that might be fine and the bread sticks and the cinnamon sticks are in a parchment lined box but why not the pizza?

They did offer me a $20 refund via the head office but I still will not go back to a place that I just ticked off. It's an open kitchen but not open enough for my liking. Try it for yourselves and see if you agree with this review about the cardboard.
