Mezbaan3499 Kingsway, Vancouver
A notch above
Submitted Wednesday, April 15, 2009 - 12:27am [Dine in]

I was in the area and saw the $7.95 AYCE sign and popped in for a quick bite. The buffet consisted of about eight dishes. The butter chicken and mutter paneer in a rich creamy sauce was especially good. Usually one does not find this kind of mutter paneer in a buffet selection. The only letdown was the dessert. The gulab jamun was served cold and I prefered my gj served warmand it tasted as if it was made a couple of days earlier.

Unfortunately some of the dishes, such as the chilli chicken was not ready yet. But not their fault as it was 11:40 when I came in and I had a 12:00 meeting with my accountant down the street.

Overall the Mezbaan is a much better deal than the Samosa Garden across the street. I wished the friendly owner success in his new venture and promised to return and dine in a more leisurely manner.

Nakodhar Sweets & Restaurant6560 Main Street, Vancouver
Better than the rest on Main Street
Submitted Saturday, April 5, 2008 - 8:54pm [Dine in]

Nakodhar is the latest AYCE in thePunjabi market. The rice dish was very good as was the gulab jamuns but there was no tandoori dishes. The restaurant is not as busy as it opened recently. It advertises as having Chinese and western dishes but it is only a smattering. Better to go all Indian. There is one puzzling thing. The dessert dishes, and there were four, are spread over the buffet table. The custard sauce and ras gula was in the salad section while the gulab jamun was with the Chinese section. The uninitiated could easily mix the dessert with the main meal. Otherwise, I would rate it better than Himalya and All-India.

Friendly owners and hopefully there can make a go of it as several restaurants has closed on that location.

Tacos Mexico Rico309 West Pender, Vancouver
Very satisfied
Submitted Thursday, April 3, 2008 - 9:38pm [Dine in]

An former coworker from Mexico told me the most authentic Mexican is Tacos Mexico Rico. I happened to be d/t and decided to drop in.

The restaurant is very clean and spacious definitely not a hole in a wall. I was greeted by a very kind lady. I ordered the beef enchilada. It came with complimentary chips and salsa. There should have been more chips and the salsa certainly gave a kick to the tastebuds. Some people might find the salsa too spicy but it was fine with me.

The enchilada with rice was excellent, the sauce was savory and mild and tender chunks of beef was tender.

The full meal with a can of soda was less than $11. A great value. As I as stepping out, a person was checking out the menu posted on the window. I told him the food was excellent. He took my advice.

the horror the horror
Submitted Friday, February 15, 2008 - 12:11am [Dine in]

Decided to use up a gift certificate. We went in at 1:30 and there was five people in there. Bad sign. The food was so awful and so overpriced. The bbq chicken sandwich with barely cooked fries was $13. Quizno is half the price and ten times better. The next time I am given a gift certificate I would re-gift and just throw it away. It is not even worth a free meal. The only redeeming feature was that the waitress was very attentive.

Great Lunch Special
Submitted Thursday, February 14, 2008 - 11:59pm [Dine in]

Was in the area and decided to drop in. The lunch special for $5.95 was outstanding and a great bargain. Kung-pao chicken,rice, tea and soup really hit the spot. I will surely come back certainly for the lunch special and maybe more.

Anatolia's Gate Restaurant7084 Kingsway, Burnaby
welcome
Submitted Saturday, January 5, 2008 - 11:38pm [Dine in]

AGR is a welcome addition to the dearth of turkish restaurants.
The family just arrived from New York where they still operate a successful restaurant.

It is a small restaurant and take-out place but the interior is visually pleasing. There are turkish ornaments and distinctive tiles and open fire oven.

I had the iskandar kebab. It was a lot of food. The lamb was satueed in tomato and yogurt with a side of rice and red cabbage. Also served was a large thin bread with dipping sauce. The lamb was not as moist as I would like. Nevertheless I could not finish the meal. Along with bakala and turkish tea, the meal was less than $17.

The server was very friendly and helpful in guiding me about Turkish cuisine. Stop by. I don't think you will disappointed.

Capital B Restaurant1344 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver
fair value
Submitted Tuesday, January 1, 2008 - 4:40pm [Dine in]

Was in North Vancouver and popped into the Capital B for the AYCE .

The three rice (pulloo) dishes was good. The meat dishes was a hit and miss affair. The kebab was the best although it took a while for the kitchen to replenish it. The beef stew was a little too tangy for my taste. The beef ribs had too much fat but it was delicious. The chicken was overpowered by the lemon. There was little selection of vegetrian entrees and not very tempting. There was a few Western dishes such as lasgana.

The place was clean although the plates left by previous diners were not cleared as quickly as it should be.

Overall, the best description for the food was it was filling. For $10, it was fair value.

Cafe Kathmandu2779 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Hearty Food served up by a Communist
Submitted Wednesday, October 24, 2007 - 6:47pm [Dine in]

First thing I noticed was the picture of King of Nepal with the words "Bad King".

We had the Ck's signature appetizer the lhasa momo. These small steamed dumplings were a hit. The cilantro chutney was smooth and the tomato chutney might be a bit too spicy for some people. Kothay which was fried dumplings was nice and crunchy. The jhinga(prawns) was too small a serving to justify its price.

I had the rice and red lentil puree. It was not outstanding but nice and filling. All in all it was a good night and having an interesting discussion about politics, society and Nepal made it a memorable evening.

Value for money
Submitted Thursday, September 13, 2007 - 11:52pm [Dine in]

Though not a great fan of dosa, we went anyway. We had the Chicken 65 appetizer(should have asked what the 65 stood for).At $7.95, it was suitable for two people. The chicken was moist but the sauce seemed to be off the shelf sauce. My shrimp dosa was outstanding. The dosa was flaky not crispy as some other dosas I have eaten. The shrimp was the right amount of filling for a dosa. Remember to order mild, South Indian or Sri Lankan food can be very spicy much more than Northern Indian cuisine.

Good choice
Submitted Monday, September 10, 2007 - 11:30pm [Dine in]

It was past five pm and the only meat dish left was the lamb kibbeh. At $10 including GST, it was good value. The lamb was tender and moist. The potatoes was nicely cooked and perfectly spiced but the tabouelleh was a bit overpowering. The server was a very nice person so I gave her an extra large tip.

Al-Watan Tandoori6084 Fraser Street, Vancouver
Solid
Submitted Monday, September 10, 2007 - 11:06pm [Dine in]

Al Watan is a good solid Pakistani eatery. It is more of a cafeteria type place. It caters mainly to the homeland community. The food is nothing fancy more stick to your ribs fare. The meat dishes are better than the vegetable dishes. The lamb korma is especially good. This is one of the few places where one gets enough rice to go with your meals.
